Today, I went on the KB to post an uplifting message for proactive discussion. The title of my thread was: All Writers Unite To Give The World Your Best Words To Empower! After I published the thread, the comments got bizarre.
The first person that commented seemed to be very sarcastic then a few others were positive and my responses were the same.
This is a writer’s site mind you…
All of a sudden, a comment comes from a woman who apparently has some kind of superiority complex and begins making insulting comments about the topic–then she criticized the fonts I used, giving advice about how it appears “attention seeking” and all of that. The kicker: she then began correcting my punctuation. Really? It was clear that this woman was not going to stop and then all of a sudden; a group of people that she knew began making snarky comments. I responded to them.
What followed basically is my honest response to all of these white writers who must have made insinuations about my signature photos and as they always do; they chose to be condescending and accusatory toward me as though I started a fight or something. And true to form, true racists try to make you responsible for them being racist.
I stopped it all when I accused them all of being racists! Oh, they got defensive then…one having the audacity to say that I didn’t have any proof to call them racists, but you start becoming hostile on a positive thread–for what reason? It was totally bizarre.
Honestly, African Americans are not highly represented on many sites and forums like this and I began to feel as though I was being profiled. I wasn’t having that and I let them have it.
Well, I am posting the link to the board and you tell me what you think:
