I think the absolute worst thing about racism is how it causes me to doubt my own perceptions of reality, how badly it gaslights PoC into thinking that of course we can’t be right, we cannot possibly be correct in how we see anything.

When we call you out for saying or doing something racist, it is because you said or did something racist. It is not because we have a poor self-image or because we are insecure. If we had a poor self-image or were insecure, we’d most likely not even speak up against the racism that you’re so blind to.
Don’t you dare say that we suffer from poor self-esteem. When you do that, you’re trying to shift blame for offense towards your actions from you to us. Not only does that make you a racist, it also makes you a coward.
But, of course, you don’t care. It’s easier for you to think that there’s something wrong with us than it is for you to realize that there is something wrong with you and the system that you benefit from.
Go fuck yourselves.
