I know as a white person I should "shut up and listen" when a POC is talking and normally I do, but I've seen some Tumblr stuff about how white people are genetically violent, 'not the same species' and should be eradicated, stuff like that (and it's not a joke). I haven't said anything yet, but i feel like "shut up and listen" can't possible apply when factually untrue eugenics stuff is being said, right? Or should I accept that as the truth...?

What I learn when I see those messages is the extent of the anger and pain that people of color have in reaction to white supremacy.  I don’t take it personally or see it as a threat.  It is a form of expression that I completely relate to and empathize with, because the level of violent misogyny I see and hear about makes me see red as a woman, so I understand the kind of agony that being powerless against oppression feels like.  I’m glad there is a forum where oppressed people of all kinds can come and say essentially whatever they want; they can say as much hateful shit about the privileged group that hurts them every day and they will not be punished for it.  Free speech.  It’s a good thing.
