I’ve seen A LOT of this looping of POC into conversations that they have nothing to do with. I myself have had conversations about race and privilege that basically ended in dumpster fires because I was expected to back down on my opinions to placate the person who brought me into the conversation. It’s abusive and entitled, and it’s literally like using POC as Pokemon in the discourse on race. Don’t do this. Read, do the work, don’t expect others to do the heavy lifting.
