.: Why did you name the Daily Caller as a fact-checker for FB? Zuckerberg: We don’t appoint the fact-checkers. They go through an independent org with a rigorous standard. AOC: So you would say white supremacist tied publications meet a rigorous standard for fact-checking?

We must recognize that anti-white racism does not exist (eg, we have never faced structural or institutional racism for being white). We need to confront our white fragility (lashing out during conversations about race). We need to educate ourselves and have hard conversations.

People of color understandably get exhausted and angry because they have to constantly deal with us wringing our hands like there is nothing we can do. There is, but we need to educate ourselves. There are SO MANY resources online about how white people can become anti-racists.

Also reverse racism isn’t a thing. White people continue to hold power at every level. They continue to make decisions for the benefit of keeping white supremacy alive and well. Your belief in reverse racism shows your fear of losing power as a white person = white supremacy.

If you are unwilling even for one minute to sit in your discomfort while talking about white supremacy and your privilege and if you only seek out people who don’t challenge you and you feel comfortable around - I’m not that person.

SO glad I did my job today and made another white person feel comfortable in their privilege. Your response to me is so incredibly problematic as it reeks of white supremacy. If in your eyes I wasn’t well educated- would you still listen to that list I posted?
