Thanks to Renee at Womanist Musings for being on this.
It appears that some white queers still don’t got their shit together, despite all the discussion about race and the LGBT community that’s being going on around Prop 8. Queerty, a respectable website that at times suffers from an overdose of white privilege, published this image.
Read Renee’s post for good analysis about what’s wrong with Queerty’s appropriation of this image. I just wanted to draw this to the attention of The Czech readers as an expression of solidarity, as I am a white queer person and I want this cavalier appropriation of American blacks’ racial struggles by white queers to STOP.
I am still against Prop 8, but this is not the way to fight it. How can QPOC (queer people of color) feel part of a movement that is so disrespectful of their unique histories?
