I want to believe Mariah is trying to help, but her overall message always comes off as self-serving. LOOK AT ME! I get she’s trying (not all that effectively) to describe systemic/institutional racism, microaggressions, and their consequences that affect someone’s entire life.
My problem with Mariah is that she rarely explains whatever her actual points are without coming across as a somebody that just rattles off her theories, but personally doesn’t really do a whole lot of anything to help fix the problem. How is she an ally? What is she personally doing besides telling all of us what we need to do?
I wish Mariah would say I did a,b,c to actively fight against racism, sexism, gay bashing or whatever she is speaking about that day. I think people seeing what she does would inspire more change that her musings on IG. Even if she didn’t know how to go about it, she could find some actual people creating change and offer to showcase them on her fairly large platform, although I think she’d probably spend a good amount of time interrupting them.
