In my art class, I sit on a table with four other white girls, the kind that want to “dress up as Native American Princesses on Halloween!” which means every two days I have to explain again that it’s racist to do so, the point being that it doesn’t seem to stick, but nevertheless. There’s a new girl we have in class who just moved here and one of them wants to know if “they use military time” or something in the way white people use PoC as google for basic, ridiculous questions, and I tried to stop them from making a fool of themselves because I pity them.
It didn’t work. She totally made them look like fools.
I like this new girl already.
