The post I didn’t know I was waiting for
white people who literally just don’t get it: a memoir
i have lots of compassion for people of color who come from really white communities and didn’t come up with lots of people of color.
i have lots of compassion when they say sympathizing shit about white people’s racist, tokenizing, minimizing, etc behavior.
because most of the time, yeah, if you’re the only person of color in your white neighborhood you aren’t threatening to white people and they have no reason to act aggressively towards you
taking the compassion to support the transition of people of color who have their hearts broken when they start to realize they are actually a part of a threat to whiteness; that they have been groomed by white supremacy to make communities of color seem like the “bad guys”

I’m sticking this over here since this is where other discussions of this have come up, but here, have a description of why PTSD triggers suck and avoiding them is important even when they’re not immersive flashbacks:
At the beginning of the year, I was dangerously depressed. But since we’ve managed to get my meds stabilized I’ve been quite well, to the point where people who see me intermittently, like my parents, have been remarking on how much better I seem.
Week before last, A Trigger Happened. I didn’t actually notice - I had a lot on my mind - but that didn’t mean it didn’t have an effect, and I quite rapidly ramped up my hostility, my aggression, started having huge trouble sleeping, etc. Then this last week, Another Trigger Happened.
Same deal: I’m sleeping badly. I’m touchy as fuck, whether I’m trying to be or not. More sinister, however, is that my cognitive capacity has gone down (I’m objectively dumber and less able to complete mental tasks or adequately concentrate on necessary activities than I was last month), my self-worth is in the toilet, I want to sleep all the time - and people who see me in face-to-face space (where they can see how I move, and how my facial expressions change, and how I respond to things) have gone back to their various expressions of worry.
To whit: two middling triggers, one of which I didn’t identify at the time, have more or less erased the good effects of my medications. If this follows pattern, I may be approaching normal by sometime next week. Maybe. That’s most of a month trashed.
This is why a) No, stereotypical flashbacks are not the only kind of triggers, but also b) no, really, the experience of someone with a mental illness having that mental illness triggered is not the same as someone without one being passingly upset by something, and why that difference is important.
