#WhitePeopleEquivalents Is The Hashtag That You Need To See Right Now

Writer and founder of Black Girl Dangerous, Mia McKenzie unleashed an incredibly insightful and brutally honest hashtag last night — #WhitePeopleEquivalents. Instead of me explaining the origins of it, read it straight from Mia and then check out the hashtag for yourself. I’ve also included some of my favorites here (along with my own).
It’s a good step in the direction of an important discussion about perception and experience, especially in terms of culture, race, and the problematic stereotypes that lie within. Honestly, I never want this hashtag to end.
