I did the annual “Living Stations of The Cross” with the local Pax Christi today. Tomorrow I will be at the “Trump Tax Day” rally. I also plan to be at an event on May 1st.
To me, I’m doing my part to resist Trump. To some, including a few in the resistance, I am acting like a “Good White Person”.
Now I can understand the idea of a “Bad White Person”; this is the deplorable, the member of the “Trailer Park Caucus”, etc. But why did it sound like the person who called me this was making it sound like I was wrong for doing what I see as the right thing.
Of course there is another way the “Good White Person” could be applied. That being to the person who sees Trump’s actions and policies as wrong, but is unwilling to stand up or even support the resistance. These folks are much like the “Good Germans” that enabled Hitler or allowed slavery or segregation to continue.
