cats-in-wonderland asked:I messaged that girl regarding her dream catcher tattoo and her response was that because the one native person she knows thinks its ok then it's ok. I've noticed that a lot of racist people use the PoC's they know as a justification for their racism. Just wanted to know what your take on this "argument" is. For me I always say that just because the one person they know isn't offended, doesn't mean they aren't offending many other people.
Honestly, if one of my good friends came to me with that tattoo and explanation for it, I might not have it in me to tell them that it’s kind of fucked up. :/
That being said; one POC ≠ all POCs, and I’d probably take the word over a whole bunch of them over one who happens to be your friend.
