What? Oh, that? No of course I'm not talking about that. It's just totally abstract.

I certainly think a POC is more experienced than a white person to decide what might or might not be racially offensive. It's like any case when you say something another person find offensive, it is far less respectful to get defensive when told you hurt another, then to take responsibility...assuming you respect that person...which I think is half the trouble. The people saying this stuff that is so obviously out of order that even my kids’ dad (who is a white man raised in a old country style Russian family) picked it up, obviously have no respect for the people they hurt or they’d not being having their pity party about hoe the mean POC are picking on them.
