Well-Meaning Liberal by Bougie Girl Apparel
I mean well. Seriously, I do. I just want everyone to be accorded with the proper amount of respect no matter what their race, religion, national origins, skin color, weight, age, and/or mental capacity.
Is that too much ask?
Admittedly, there are times when I go overboard with this lovely concept and invariably end up alienating the people whom I am trying to protect.
It never occurs to me that my well-meaning protection of these people is hurting them in the long run. I make excuses for their inability to get ahead in the world. I point out that their past history of being unfairly oppressed will always prevent them from ever enjoying the type of success that I take for granted.
I set the bar low for these people and then over praise them for every little gain that they make. I am fostering delusion and entitlement within them but, I cannot seem to stop myself.
