Inspired by a real online interaction with someone who disliked my calling out the fact that the impunity of white men is to the detriment of our species. The entire planet is suffering because of this impunity, and we see genocide rampant, rape and murder of innocent women and children, the pillage of our oceans, and yet those in power turn a blind eye when the one committing the acts is a man, particularly a white man, most assuredly when he's a rich white man.

I'm oft heard saying patriarchy benefits no one, deep down, but this day, and this post, was not laden with compassionate overtones; I simply stated the facts, and was less than impressed with a request from a white man to rephrase my observations of the world, in order to cleanse him of any sense of guilt for being of his gender and race.

Allow me to state that I do not feel offended when friends of color call out the bullshit that white people have done and continue to do; while I
am not actively committing overtly racist acts, racism is inherent to some extent in the experience of being a white person in today's racist society, and is something I work regularly to maintain awareness of, and to correct when I spot it in myself.

There's no need to be offended when people point out injustices; just listen, and try to help.

lyrics

I
I've gotta kill
Kill all the men today
Oh I've gotta kill
Kill 'em with kindness
That's what the white man said, oh
That's what the white man said

Yeah, I know white men getting away with murder
(3-4 women a day in the US alone)
Yeah, I know white men getting away with genocide
(1-3 million Muslims in China right now)
Yeah, I know white men getting away with organ harvesting, and sex trafficking, and rape of children
(It's gotta stop)

Yeah, I know, but kill 'em with kindness
(Just kill 'em with kindness)
Yeah, RAINBOW, you're missing the point
(You don't know what you're talking about)

If we just had more compassion
(If we just had more compassion)
Maybe they would stop raping and killing our women and children stop killing eachother we all could die happy

If we just had more compassion
(If we just had more compassion)
Maybe China would release the Uyghurs they torture and mutilate with worldwide impunity 'cause men can do anything

If we just had more compassion
(If we just had more compassion)
Maybe millions of women would not die when pregnant in first world countries without reproductive healthcare

If we just had more compassion
Oh, you're missing the point

If we just had more compassion
(If we just had more compassion)
If we just had more compassion
(If we just had more compassion)
If we weren't so anti-white man
(If we just had more compassion)
If we'd say this never happened
(If we just had more compassion)

Then white men could sleep well tonight
So I've gotta kill
Kill all the men today
Kill 'em with kindness
That's what the white man said
