Simply responding with “not all” is another from of privilege.
“So let’s cut the shit . . .
If you’re a white person and you’re saying, “Not ALL of us are like that” or you’ve accused a black person of “generalizing” or you’ve demanded a person of color to correct him or herself, understand that you’re not just asserting your privilege to shape the discourse around racism; you’re also demonstrating a staggering lack of empathy. You’re acting as if your implicit limited understanding of racism is more accurate and ‘true’ than the lived experiences of people who actually face racism every day, as if your sensitivities are more important than what the individual is going through.”
