  1. I think people do not want to deal with their racism. They don’t want to know how privilege has put them ahead of others. They don’t want it in their consciousness. They want to believe they they deserve and have earned everything they have and others don’t.

    1. “I think people do not want to deal with their racism. They don’t want to know how their actions/lifestyle choices has put them behind others. They don’t want it in their consciousness. They want to believe they deserve what other’s have and have earned ”

      See? I can do it too. But more than likely you’ll just go on thinking some people can do no wrong and shouldn’t be held accountable for personal choices, and that there aren’t consequences (a.k.a something that we learn when we’re toddlers.) While at the same time thinking that there are others who can do no right, and are literally wrong with any action they take, and don’t even deserve to have the clothes on their backs.

  2. How a Black American actually inspired Beauvoir we may never know. How was this not a subtle (or not so subtle) misogynistic mechanism?
