I’ve never understood this notion perpetuated by some POC bloggers that white people should use their white privilege to speak out against white privilege. Like, it literally is so mind numbingly contradictory, you might as well be saying the best way to put out a fire is to set the fire on fire.
You can’t use white privilege to dismantle white privilege, because that perpetuates white privilege, and if you are perpetuating white privilege, in what sense have you possibly deluded yourself into thinking you’re dismantling it?
Can we point out how in interviews the boys only implied but never stated their dislike for the 1D books, but in the leaked weed video Louis and Zayn outright stated their dislike for the 1D books?
It’s almost as if the boys don’t have full freedom to say what they think in interviews and so they use other communication tactics that require you to read between the lines.

Another odd question, whats your opinion on a white cis male using his privilege to shed light and help open up peoples minds on certain topics and problems that PoC face? Is it just a cry for attention or is he using his privilege in the best way?
