@AngryBlackLady have seen a couple white feminists do so: @jennpozner, @shelbyknox, @JessieNYC. But otherwise the silence is remarkable.

.@graceishuman @jennpozner @shelbyknox @JessieNYC Yes. I saw Jenn speak out & I thank her. I’m referencing those who know me & loathe me. :)
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
You're welcome-of course! &u'll enjoy knowing @shelbyknox @JessieNYC MT @AngryBlackLady @graceishuman Yes. I saw Jenn speak out &I thank her
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Watching liberal white &/or male writers/activists abuse race/gender privilege-then deny it-is painful. Cop 2it; listen; learn; onward. 1of2
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
2/2: Don't let guilt over privilege (male/white/class/whatever) or shame about f*cking up cloud yr ability 2move fwd with integrity&purpose.
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
No one is perfect. Strive 2prioritize ethics+content+actions+more than yr reputations. (&if someone admits failings, don't beat dead horse)
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Finally, I make this public promise: if/when I f*ck up on race, trans or other issues, expect me 2acknowledge, apologize & try to do better.

@jennpozner Thank you Jennifer. Sometimes I still get mired in guilt about white privilege and I will remember this to get myself unstuck!

@jennpozner Its wise check if the horse is just playing dead. Feel like there is a lot of "guilty...next topic" rather than introspection.
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
PS: Last few tweets about white/male guilt & accountability were inspired by brief convo w/ @AngryBlackLady &friends @shelbyknox @JessieNYC.
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
YW, @yoga7165 That's the thing about guilt abt white privilege: it doesn't help anything, just gets ppl stuck. Instead: recognize+learn+act.
@JessieNYC @JessieNYC
MT @jennpozner Called out on privilege? Cop 2it; listen; learn; onward < so simple, yet so hard for most. This is it, really.
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Agreed MT @feministfather wise2check if horse is just playing dead. Feel lk there's a lot of "guilty...next topic" rather than introspection
@JessieNYC @JessieNYC
One of the essential features of white supremacy (WS) is entitlement to being right. Upending WS is letting go of the desire 2 B right.
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Yes, @feministfather! Real accountability req's active listening, acknowledging, action toward justice. Also thnk we need 2 let ppl improve.

@JessieNYC @jennpozner Can we make some PSAs on this w/ a catchy jingle & run them wildly across the blogosphere? #themoreyouknow
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Often, well-intentioned ppl get mired in their feelings/reps rathr n action. RT @JessieNYC so simple, yet so hard 4most. This is it, really.
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Graphic designers--simple project for WIMN: RT @sjjphd Can we make some PSAs on this w/a catchy jingle &run them wildly across blogosphere?
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
My tweets on accountability re. f*ck-ups: my advice to cop 2it+listen+learn+do better? They apply 2 journalists/writers, not just activists.
Feminist Father @feministfather
@jennpozner Agreed, especially about improvement. I'm fairly good at acknowledging & listening. Working on larger justice issue.
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Yep. So much o this in last month alone...RT @JessieNYC It's all very Drama of the GIfted Child/Alice Miller. Fragile (privileged) egos &all
Jennifer L. Pozner @jennpozner
Thnx. None of us r perfect (I'm not). But some let egos get in way of justice. RT @AngryBlackLady hearty amen &amiable clap on the shoulder!
🍁Imani Gandied Yams🍁 @AngryBlackLady
.@jennpozner agreed. a simple apology goes a long way. folks can disagree on politics, but some words hurt and that should be acknowledged.
