We are pleased to present, our impactful t-shirt, "I'm Gonna Need You To Stop Your Colonial Behavior," designed to spark conversations and shed light on the complexities of white privilege and the detrimental impact of colonial mentality. Colonial mentality, rooted in the perception of ethnic and cultural inferiority, reflects a form of internalized racial oppression. This mentality is an enduring consequence of the United States' extensive history of colonialism, shaping attitudes about mental health in its wake.

But what exactly is white privilege? It's like the air we breathe for those born with access to power and resources, making it challenging to recognize. Peggy McIntosh's insights in "White Privilege and Male Privilege" emphasize that many who possess these privileges may not even realize they have them. For those unaffected, it's like asking fish to notice water or birds to discuss air – it's so ingrained that it feels normal. Privilege, whether based on race, gender, class, physical ability, sexual orientation, or age, is often viewed as unearned power systematically conferred.

This t-shirt serves as a poignant reminder that privileges are not universal conditions but, rather, specific advantages enjoyed by certain individuals. Wearing this shirt is a statement against colonial behavior and white privilege, urging individuals to reflect on the dynamics of privilege and the need to dismantle the deeply ingrained systems that perpetuate inequality. It's a call to action for self-awareness and empathy, encouraging open dialogue about the unseen advantages that some may take for granted.

Change the dialogue and help change the world, one t-shirt at a time with the "I'm Gonna Need You To Stop Your Colonial Behavior". Let this shirt be an emblem of awareness, and a commitment to dismantling the barriers of privilege for a better tomorrow. Nobody deserves to feel less than.
