Today's lesson, Racism. If you see something written here that you’ve said or done, use it as an opportunity. Take it as a wake up call and make the decision to grow, change and be conscious of your own privilege. Remember, I am not a speaker for the entirety of a people.
It’s time to take back the tag. Over the past few weeks, it’s seemed that one of the worst things anyone could ever call you is a “Social Justice Blogger.” We’ve all watched as this good and decent thing has been turned into a slur.
Enough is enough.
When did we start allowing Social Bigot Bloggers to set the tone? To say what is good? What is decent? How did we even get here? We allowed the Social Bigot Blogger community to create ugly where there was none. We allowed them to turn something necessary into something dirty. We allowed them to make calling someone on their bigotry, a punishable offense.
Have you ever looked through the Social Justice, SJ or SJW tags? It’s full of people complaining about people they’ve deemed SJ bloggers. Usually, not people who ARE SJ bloggers, just people who have stood against bigotry and therefore, are one of the “Evil SJ Bloggers.” How on Earth could anyone every have a problem with Social Justice? Well, that’s an easy question to answer. If you area bigot, you are likely to get called on your shit from people in the SJ community. If you are a bigot, you are likely to hate SJ bloggers. If you are a bigot, you are likely to spend your time talking about how much you hate SJ bloggers. Hate is what you do best, after all.
The best thing about the “Anti-SJ” people is that they clearly show themselves to be Social Bigot Bloggers. The next time someone accuses you of being a SJ blogger when you’re not OR uses it as a slur when you are, point to them as a Social Bigot Blogger.
If you post anything that could benefit Social Justice, don’t hesitate to put the SJ tags on your post. We must stop allowing bigots to decide for us. To shame us into NOT working for the betterment of society.
Always remember: The only people who could be anti-social justice are those that benefit from the bigoted status quo.
