Anonymous: Concerning minor shitty things people have done that others consider inconsequential: When someone does something like use a racial slur, in the big picture it probably has minor consequences, but it's also another drop of water contributing to the vast ocean of racism. When a celebrity uses a racial slur, due to mass visibility, their contribution is more like a gallon. Calling people out does not mean burn them at the stake, it means that certain action is unacceptable and should stop.

Although I think sometimes people can get caught up in mob mentality and feeling self-righteous which are really hard to avoid.

(is this still about Green? if so I don’t know if he’s ever used a racial slur but if it’s not about him then I’m publishing this just bc it’s true and I like it so thank you.)
