it’s always disappointing and frustrating when people choose not to own their privilege, and challenge it so they can grow and become more decent individuals (yes, i used the word decent). but it’s particularly enraging when people’s ignorance displays itself in a public way, where it affects communities and society at large. ignorance contributes to oppression, whether in a direct or indirect way. to not take responsibility is just messed up. especially if you have been challenged and called out on your shit.

a fellow blogger, EMBRAZENED recently posted an entry regarding an incident that involved her calling certain people out on their inaction to deal with a racist situation at an event held by said people. needless to say, there was backlash along with a lot of B.S.
and it's appalling.

for more on this see embrazened’s blog.
