Twitter Explains Why #ItsOKToBeWhite Is Flawed, How White Oppression Isn’t A Thing, & SO Much More

PSA: white oppression isn’t a thing.

We don’t know if you’ve seen this phrase lurking around the Internet — but apparently white people are so upset that others are questioning their privilege that they’ve created their own “movement” called “It’s OK To Be White.” Vom.

What is it exactly? Well, as the fight for equality continues, white people are feeling under attack and, dare we say it, discriminated against. As the saying goes:

“When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.”

The problem is, we are still so far from true equality as white people continue to have the upper hand in almost every situation.

Hello white people, are you listening? Put the tissues down and start doing something productive with your power.
