I think the bigger issues is what and how white people rationalize different things. For hygiene I honestly take what doctors or scientist say with a grain of salt for certain topics because their biases affect their studies too. That’s why there were scientists claiming certain races were genetically inferior. I’m not surprised you got a lot of angry responses, the responses to this have been hilarious to read. Overall, the focus was on “not all white ppl" and that’s it’s okay to love dogs and many didn’t respond to the main point, which is the over regard for dogs over Black lives.
