What a PoC said: I suffer from racism daily, I get discriminated against and sometimes it even gets violent and I don't know how to handle this anymore. A lot of this comes from white people, I don't know how to make them understand. They don't see me as a human being, they think they can take things from my culture and heritage for their pleasure while ignoring the history of oppression that comes along with it. I hate this racism, xenophobia and cultural appropriation that I have to suffer through, not just me but other people of color as well.
What an ignorant White person heard: Wow, you hate white people, I can't fucking believe you.
