It’s not okay. It’s not right, it’s not cool… it’s NOT FUCKING OKAY!

Listen up, white people…

We did this. We fucked up.

Listen up every liberal (myself included) who didn’t take Trump seriously…

We did this. We fucked up.

Maybe you want to know why I include myself, when I voted for Clinton? Because I’m still complicit in the Patriarchal White Supremacy that let this happen. As are you.

We should all be ashamed of ourselves.


And to women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, everyone who’s not Christian, everyone who’s not able-bodied…

I’m sorry. I’m so fucking sorry.

    Yes. You did.

    What are you planning to do about it? What have you learned?

    Speaking as a Black woman:
    F***your sorry!
    We don’t need sorry. We need support.

    A week from now, I may cool down some and want to look at another white person again.

    Going around shrieking blame is kind of uncool, if you ask me. There is plenty of blame to go around and -- yes -- Trump’s mainly white male supporters get a share of it, but the dems shot themselves repeatedly in the foot by running an unlikable candidate, who then shot the foot again and again and again. And her legendary propensity for foot-shooting was known back in 2008.

    There’s a lot of stupid politicians, and some racist deplorables, but guess which did more damage? I’m not accepting blame for any of that. Nope. Not my fault. And I didn’t just sit by and complain, either: I voted, did what I could, but -- hey my primary vote was mooted, and the Clintonians played a terrible ground-game in rural PA. Go shriek at them. I’m probably the only voter in Clearfield County who voted for Hillary, and I had to hold my nose to do it.

    So: no, no blame accepted.

    Now that the shock, anger and sadness is wearing off a bit, I’m becoming worried for my family. I’m not too worried about myself because I’m secular and avoid Muslim gatherings and fairly easily manage what circles I interact in. But I have many Muslim family here in the south. And we know we’re a group the white supremacists love to intimidate and attack and commit vandalism against.

    Fuck white people (particularly white men). This was a very crucial test for you to prove you’re somewhat decent human beings and you failed miserably.
