“The real White People’s Burden is to civilize ourselves.” Richard Spencer

When we declare poverty only a problem of the inferior blacks, we shame and abandon poor whites.

A majority of the recipients of state care in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA are white women and their children.

When we pretend our people are not impoverished and in need, we don’t support the programs of social uplift that would mainly serve this vulnerable population.

So, change the paradigm of race baiting using classist rhetoric for the sake of our less fortunate mothers and daughters and sons.

And, more importantly, stop centering your thinking on brownness and blackness and ask yourself, “What have I done to directly and positively impact my people today?”
