you have put a picture of me on this website. i would like it taken down. not because i think what i did was ok. but because i am so ashamed of it. i honestly forgot it was on my facebook, which is probably where you found it (meaning that you know me). i have since deleted it. i am sincerely sorry for this photograph. it was taken over three years ago, when i was a freshman in college and hanging out with some pretty shitty people. i know that this is no excuse. dressing like this and mocking someone's cultural heritage is not excusable. but i hope that it is forgivable at this point. i have since educated myself and been educated by people that know and knew better than me. i realize that dressing up like this is completely fucked up and not ok. but acting like that is in the past. i hope that i have grown and learned from this. i understand if you keep this picture up. it is proof that even people that claim to be radical can fuck up. it is proof that every humyn makes a fucked up mistake at least once in their life. i just want to express my sincere shame and apology for this photograph. i am so sorry. i forgot about this picture because it was never a big deal to me, which i realize is fucked up in itself, but i have since learned. please forgive me. if you don't, i understand. i just want this blog to know that i am sincerely sorry for what i did three years ago.
i’m just gonna go ahead and advise you to direct yr apologies to something other than a fucking tumblr. i took down yr picture cause you asked—not because you weren’t being fucked up, or because the folks who run this blog “forgave” you. quit being white guilty. try being actively accountable instead.
