freelark : Shit White People Say to People of Color

"The Shit Girls Say" meme may have had some not-so-good origins, but Franchesca Ramsey changed that when she made "Shit White Girls Say . . . to Black Girls" to expose some of the microaggressions black women deal with on a regular basis. (Thea Lim and Tami Winfrey Harris have written more about the sequence of events.)

Here is a round-up of some of the anti-oppressive "Shit Girls Say" videos I have found; each features a person of color giving us a glimpse into hir world.

Here is the original and its sequel:

Shit White Girls Say . . . to Black Girls

Shit White Girls Say . . . to Black Girls: 2

And some others:

Shit White Girls Say to Asian Girls

Shit White Girls Say to Asian Girls 2: OTHER Shit White Girls Say to Asian Girls

Shit White Girls Say to . . . Brown (Desi/Indian) Girls

Shit White Girls Say to Latinas

Shit White People Say to Natives

Does anyone have more?

You know how the rule of thumb for these things is "don't read the comments"?

Yeah, I wish I'd done that.

theres shit white girls say to arab girls, and shit white guys say to asian girls. i found it interesting so few of them critiqued white men.

I found that interesting as well. It blows the idea of sisterhood to hell, doesn't it? (I say this as a white trans woman who has her own experiences of not finding groups of women to be a refuge during my struggles.)

Thank you for the titles.

it's kind of a copout in my opinion, the lack of satires of white masculinity in that series.
