There are few things more weird to me than watching non-Black “People of Color” fight tooth-n-nail to defend white supremacy. From Ajit Pai, chairman of the FCC, all the way to the legions of triggered trolls across social media, who show up wild-eyed and foam mouthed in my comments to fuss at me about my anti-racism position, it is crazy-looking.
One would think that the 500 yr history of the blight of European colonialist terror across the globe would have taught them something, but no. One of these weird POCs, living as a first generation immigrant in Canada firmly told me that his land had NEVER been conquered by Europeans. An embarrassingly simple Google search + copy/paste left him looking stupid, predictably.
My thing is, I understand the history of the ‘cooning’ phenomenon among my own people, but what possible excuse do these others have? What does this proud defense of white supremacist evil actually mean as displayed by all of these POC groups?
