I'm a 34yo woman. I posted my fears and feelings on another anonymous writing site and they bullied me for it. Called me stupid white trash
Can I plz share my story here without someone making me feel like shit for doing so? Ok I will.
I've lived in Chicago for most of my life. I've put up with a lot here. Lots of violent crime in my city. I stayed though, because I thought it would never happen to me. Everyone thinks that it can't happen to them until something does happen. It did happen.
A BLM protest erupted in front of my house and it got very ugly very quickly. What started as a peaceful protest quickly turned into a riot. They smahed one of my windows and threatened to kill me. That's when I knew it wasn't safe anymore,
The next day I bought a plane ticket out of the state, and now I'm living at my brothers ranch. I want to stay until this all blows over. I'm afraid. Once upon a time, Chi Town was relatively safe. In my post to another site, I expressed my wishes that my city may become safe again. That's where they attacked. They said,
""my chicago", the chicago that *you* know, the way *you* see chicago - the one that is safe for who? oh that's right, white people"
They misrepresented what I said and bullied me for it. I'm certain they implied that Im a racist. But what is so racist about wanting to be safe in the place you grew up? And it has nothing to do with me being White. Yes I am White, but doesn't everyone want to be safe? Even White people?
It seems like my feelings don't matter to anyone anymore. Not to them. I left everything I loved behind in fear for my life and this is how I get treated. It's like they think that because I am White, that my feelings don't matter. I thought they wanted everyone to be treated with equal respect.
I'm so sad
