listen, reverse racism may not exist let’s not get into that argument because that isn’t the point
you don’t degrade white people for being white and you don’t degrade black people for being black, if we tryna work towards a world where we’re all equal can you please tell me how the fuck calling all white people racist and saying you hate them all is helping anything? you telling white people they’re pieces of shit for being born white on the Internet is not helping anyone but possibly yourself and your own anger towards racism you’ve experienced in the past and those people were shitty I understand and white people used to be absolutely disgusting towards poc but finding people over the internet and attacking them for being white is not helping any of that, your grandparents and your ancestors were treated horribly and I understand that but you think they’d be proud of what you’re saying? making people feel guilty for being white is horrible and it may not be racism but it’s bullying, you wanna be a bully? because it doesn’t make you much better
I hate racism and I’ll always be the first to defend anyone if I think they’re being treated unfairly regardless of their race and you should too, look at your actions and reevaluate your words.
you see how upset you feel?
you feel wronged and you want to speak out on it
but you being discriminated against for what color you are goes exactly as far as the end of the internet. you won’t know racism like having a brother shot to death for looking vaguely threatening, candy bar or puppy in hand. you won’t have police bust into your house and automatically assume your father is a drug dealer if it looks like you have nice things. you won’t be denied work because your name is overly white. you won’t have to deal with absolutely any part of anything significantly racist ever in your entire life dude. think about how mad you are about this and then think about if you didn’t get to just walk away from it as soon as you logged off tumblr. think about if it followed you around. followed you to school, followed you to work, sat in on your relationships, haunted your mind when you were alone, never ever ever left you. and from the weight of being looked at as subhuman all the time absolutely alllllllllll of the time, you’d start to grow bitter, mainly towards the race whose self appointed supremacy has seeped into and corrupted each and every part of your life. am i saying it’s a great thing to automatically fire back on white people like this? no, i don’t really think it is. is it expected? entirely. if you can’t look beyond your slightly hurt feelings as to the larger societal causes of what on earth would make a black person instantly distrust and mock a white person i highly suggest you just probably not talk about it.
It’s, like, really funny because growing up my mom kept telling me and my brother that we were bi-racial (commanche and mexican) but then she sort of insisted that we consume white media. So I watched Pocahontas over and over again because I felt solidarity with her because I didn’t really understand how there were hundreds of tribes. But my folks kept taking that shit away from me by telling me I was a boy and that I needed to act like one and that’s the only time my dad actually hit me. And that, coupled with a loss of actual connection to any commanche community, is the reason why I stopped putting down bi-racial when asked. I’m Mexican.
I wonder: how different would it have been if my mom’s dad hadn’t died when she was little?
I don’t know.
Looking back at my life, I just notice all the shit I’ve had to swallow and all the hate I had to internalize. But I have to keep going onward with my life.
The battle at Seattle’s Center School raises the question—how should schools teach students about tolerance and discrimination?
wooowww. so how come a teacher leading an anti-racist discussion should have to warn parents beforehand that white children may find the conversation “distressing,” yet teachers talking about slavery, christopher columbus, andrew jackson, the mexican-american war, etc, in the usual apologetic or glorified manner, don’t have to warn parents beforehand that children of color may find the conversation very distressing???
fuck this white nonsense
Disgusting. We need MORE teachers doing this!
If someone is going to call me a racist against white people, I’m going to need a puta to give me some hard fucking facts pointing out all the times I’ve said or done anything that dehumanizes white folk, or put them out of their job, or made it harder for them to get employed, or made getting reliable health care and treatment impossible, or erased the importance of their cultures, or bascially done anything to fuck them over for their’s, their children’s, and their grand-children’s life. I’m going to need you to give me these before you utter the word racist to me.
I was texting my cousin and instead of writing “motherfucker” I wrote down “mudafugga” because he’s, like,12. And he decided to respond with “its fukka brother”.
So I texted him back, like, “mudafug, mudafugra, mudafugga, mudafugja, mudafugza” and he didn’t get it.
It’s my job to learn him the ways of the Final Fantasy.
