While I went through my individual blog posts to figure out which ones I wanted to categorize under my essays section, and site news section, I have also taken the time to edit a couple of my personal essays. I have updated them with either a postscript to add clarity or update the post, or I have modified the essay itself to add some clarity on topics requiring more nuance. Below are some of the particular posts.
I made sure to clarify further in a sentence or two that having light-skinned/white privilege means having nowhere near the same level of racism and the oppressive forces that affect less ethnically ambiguous people.
Similar corrections as the article above.
I added some references to the bibliography. As I promised in the article.
I added a point of clarity about how “appreciation” should never be made an excuse to appropriate something. The two concepts are born from different places, appropriation and the justification of it from a sense of entitlement. Also making clear while appreciation exists, it is questionable someone can appreciate a culture seen as inferior.
Just wanted to make sure I updated anything in my essay section to be as nuanced as required for the topics handled.
