i am slightly uncomfortable about how when ppl say ‘snape loved lily so he was a good man’ ppl tend to reply with variations on ‘he didn’t really love lily’ or ‘his love for lily was selfish’ instead of ‘why the fuck does it matter if he loved lily that has no bearing whatsoever on the fact that he abused kids he had power over’
like i know that the point about abuse has been made but it seems like most ppl’s immediate reactions is to explain away his love for lily and not to point out that loving someone doesn’t make you a good person
like even if he had been selfless and treated her properly and stuff he still wouldn’t have been a good person because he was so much more than his love for lily and so much of that ‘more’ was just. awful.
"the new jane crow"
"gay is the new black"
"is the t word the new n word?"
"the new civil rights movement"
it’s a metaphor see? You use black people’s historical and ongoing struggles as a catch all for your cause but you don’t give it the power to address anti-black racism or the erasure of black identities in your own community.
I had a dream last night that I worked at McDonalds and I was behind the counter when this guy dressed in a tuxedo (with white dickie and tie) was snapping his fingers for a server. I went I over and he asked to see our “darkest red” and I knew he was talking about wine so I said “sir, this is McDonalds. The darkest red we have here is ketchup” and he had me pour him a glass of ketchup and he drank it while looking me directly in the eye.
