White Ppl Can't Get Cancelled: The Bezos You Know; The Hankinsons, Cosgroves and Mattinglys You Dont
Play • 2 hr 1 min
And the Epsteins, the Michael Wolls, the Roger Stones, the Alexander Hamiltons, the David Starkeys, the Stephen Millers, the William Barrs, the Joe Biden's, the Tucker Carlsons, the Reed Hastings, Benjamin Netanyahus, Winston Churchills, FDRs, your non-profit executive director, maybe your partner, maybe you. There are so many names of white cis men who commit murder, spew anti-Black racism with impunity, collude with a white supremacist state to leverage the anti blackness inherent in our institutions--keeping Black people from access to capital that belongs to us in a country that we built, but also rendering the violence that happens to us invisible when these same white cis men RARELY lose their jobs (like being the President of this country) or face even the slightest consequences for the most egregious offenses from "white collar" crimes, environmental degradation and genocide. Black has somehow become synonymous with "crime", our deaths ruled "accidental" "misunderstandings" up for debate--after all, when a white person says or does something racist, they get a pre-written apology, a vacation, it's said they need a racial and social justice workshop, to read white fragility written by a fragile white person, all while keeping their same level of privilege, power and financial standing. Meanwhile, Black people meet the ultimate, permanent cancellation for far less. It's about time we "Say their names"...before they say ours.

Can you name white people who have caused harm? Or do you only have the names of those who experienced it?
