Introduction:

Hello internet world and especially white people,

This blog was created as a way to unlearn some common assumptions of what it means to be a person of colour. This blog is an effort by many of us “coloured people”, to unteach you some of the things you’ve learned from your token person of colour, world vision, and other forms of media that depict people of colour as this one homologous group worthy of many an anthropological study. Just a warning you will be required to feel uncomfortable, do some work, and if you are able to, read some fucking books, if not we can totally recommend other learning tools.

This blog is in no way meant to humiliate you or disrespect your beliefs, its just here to shake things up a little, to the point of discomfort, because in comfort we’re complacent, and won’t do any work to unlearn some of our shit.

if you have any problems, questions, comments, suggestions, hate mail, love mail, etc, please direct them to dearwhitepeople@gmail.com

About A place for unlearning.

This blog is dedicated to the oblivious white folks in our lives that seem to think it's okay to patronize people of colour while appropriating the shit out of our cultures.

    Yay! Thanks for this, there is always so much to learn. I’m looking forward to reading your posts and I will link to it on both my blogs (my trans one and my anthro one).
