There was a pro-black post on Instagram promoting Black history knowledge. The Instagram page was pro-black and specifically anti-white. One of the posts was a video of a man preaching about racism in America. The video link had the incorrect name of the video and someone had commented on the video correcting the post with the correct name so that people may be refereed to the correct video. I clicked on that person's profile, and they appeared to be of mixed race by my own initial perception, but not completely black by any means, neither solely white. The owner of the page commented on the man's comment and stated something like,
"Hey there little fella, I think you're lost, this is a page by Black people and for Black people ONLY, you may be lost. Take your white ass home you fucking cracker".
The person that originally commented did not comment after that. I was thinking how damaging this can be to someone's racial identity, if they even bothered to follow the page, they must have felt some affiliation or proximity to Blackness especially since the page was anti-white. While then, the owner began to bash a follower and strip them of their *possible* Blackness, (as I mentioned before they appeared to be mixed). The fact that the person did not comment back spoke to me, in the sense that they may feel skeptical about their own identity after that instance, and feel insecure of how they have been viewing themselves their whole lives.
So you, the reader, what do you think? would you feel stripped of your identity from an event like this? Or did the guy simply ignore the asinine tone of the racist comments and users?
