And even a bonus slide for any remaining queries:
Feel free to erase this bit here if you reblog, but I just wanted to explain why I made this. Very recently I got into an argument online with a white woman about a film that executed a white savior trope. I explained all the things I found problematic in the film and why I thought it was racist, and she told me that I was both nit-picking and white-shaming. I was also called a hypocrite and a racist (against white people).
I could see that this white woman was set in her willful ignorance, and that any further arguing would only make me more frustrated and her more self-righteous. So instead, I made this (lovely, if I can so myself) powerpoint rather than metaphorically bashing my head against a brick wall in continuing a conversation with her.
May this help you in all your efforts, even if it couldn’t help me in mine.
P.S. So I don’t know if someone has made a powerpoint for racism before (I’m sure someone has), but I haven’t seen one. Please link it to us if you have!
racial fetishization is racism.
it is not a compliment.
stop pretending that you are ~appreciating the culture~, and being respectful.
reducing the many varied people within a culture to the parts that you think are cute is not being appreciative. racism is not respectful.
Art of the 琳派 Rimpa school (Japan, 18th-19th Century)
One of the major schools of Japanese art history, it arose in Kyoto in the early 17th century, and has been revived several times since then. [ X ] The simplicity of the lines, the curves, and the blocks of color and shading seem very modern, somehow.

Susan B. Anthony, badass.
Lest we forget Susan B. Anthony sought voting rights for women because she was offended that black men were allowed to vote and she wasn’t, even though, as she said, their brains weren’t capable of understanding politics. Susan B. Anthony, racist.
White privilege is Susan B. Anthony being an American hero. White privilege not understand why black folks should be skeptical of mainstream feminism when this white supremacist is one of the most seminal figures in the feminist movements.
Is it possible to acknowledge she did good things, for the wrong reasons and for a limited amount of people (white women of middle-to-upper class)? Like, she did some radical things, but her motivations were shitty at best.
Is it erasure or apologism to try and do both?
i kind of have to ask why you are here….at wocinsolidarity, if you can say such a thing. motivations matter. the “radical things” she did gave the vote to other racist upper class white women who in turn only voted to maintain the status quo…that of inequality for decades to come.
what nice things do we, as women of color, have to say about a woman who sought to uplift other wealthy white women to trample us? why should we protect her legacy?
