The Proper Use For Dry Peaches

i'll let you know when i know.

guilt is NOT a feeling. it is an intellectual mask to a feeling. fear is a feeling - fear of losing one’s power, fear of being accused, fear of a loss of status, control, knowledge. fear is real. possibly this is the emotional, non-theoretical place from which serious anti-racist work among white feminists can begin.

gloria anzaldua, cherrie moraga

this is the quote that kind of hit me in the face about my own whiteness, and how “white guilt” operates…i also think of this quote when reading conversations about the suffix “phobia” being abelist……(“it’s not fear, it’s hate!!!!”)
