Buying shoes verses buying an app or album.
Can I be serious? Yes.
Will I be today? Not really. I got questions in my inbox that I will answer with a serious, informative tone.
Just that the ones who keep telling me to adjust myself or telling me that I hate White people? Those don’t get taken seriously.
And if you’re going to base my body of work based on a few posts where I act silly to counteract all the negative energy that this topic can take sometimes…
… then all the more reason that I’m being chaotic at this time.
Q:Just admit that you are racially prejudiced against/hate white people. I would respect you a hell of a lot more if you just owned up to it and admitted it.
You want me to lie to make you feel better?
I mean, you want me to say I hate my skin as well? That I bloody hate that I get to be a better dancer, pick for sports even though I bloody don’t know what the hell I’m doing, and that I was voted “more likely to marry a White woman” in High School?
Nah… I love being Black and I love you too. Sorry to be a bloody disappointment.
Q:Until you start replying to asks with a proper answer instead of something 'snarky and sassy' people are not going to listen to you. When people read these 'sassy' answers they are going to just think that you are immature and don't have an answer. That is counter-productive to what you are trying to achieve.
I’m sorry. You have reached a party who don’t give a damn about your behavior modifications. Please hang up and try your call again.
This is a recording.
Q:Im mexican and i'd like to point out that gringos get treated better in mexico and latin america because everyone thinks they have money, even in my own fucking country white people come before me
I would also like to point out in some South American countries (like Bolivia), poor people spend money on Plastic surgery to look more…
So, yeah… you wanna talk about being a minority in a country like that? You will be treated like royalty…
*resists the urge*….
*sings* AND WE’LL NEVER BE ROYALS! ROYALS!!!!
Q:These people are having a hard time understanding the semantic shift the word 'racist' has undergone. Folks can be *prejudiced* against a white person, but the systematic oppression that is racism doesn't apply.
I explained it in a video. People still having a hard time with it.
I mean, even one comment within the video was like…
"You have been indoctrinated. Racist is a DECONSTRUCTIONIST term used to Deconstruct a country, culture and a people on all levels. Trotsky, Mao etc. This is whats used to collapse communities in to each other and take away the right of self determination form a people. I guess that it’s easily pointed out that, the definition of racism or racist you use is self-serving and much younger than the real one."
It’s a sad point of reality that this is what I have to put up with… people who think they are saying something when they are in fact, not.
Q:Sorry to flood your inbox, but: shit's complicated. Being white in Japan isn't the same thing as being black in America. Not by a long shot.
Q:Look, anon who's like "you can be racist against white ppl in Japan": White and especially American power is pervasive and global; yeah, Japan is institutionally xenophobic and yeah, people might be mean to you, but you know who has it worse? Literally anyone of a non-Japanese nonwhite race, ESPECIALLY Koreans and Chinese. In the meantime, we lead the Japanese army (SDF, I know) around by the nose, our soldiers on multiple bases rape their girls, and everybody watches our movies. Check yourself.
Q:but it is possible to be racist against white people in japan...
Well, I guess you got me there. *side eyes*
I used to live on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, so it’s safe to say that White people are the minority there.
But guess what?
I was prepped to…
- never speak like an islander
- don’t think about dreading your hair
- no tats.
- Follow Jesus Christ
- Be as non-threatening to Whites as possible.
You want to know who I interned for? A White man who told me the exact opposite:
- Do what makes you feel comfortable.
- Speak up for yourself.
- Learn the rules so you can break them.
- Be the change you want to be in the world.
He wasn’t on the “save the world” complex, he was trying to help me be the best me, not the me that the majority of my teachers was trying to shape me up to be.
So, yeah… it’s not possible to be racist against White people when we were prepped to please y’all in the first place.
Yes… you think you can just hit me with something I can’t relate to, and yet I can, just not in the way you’re expecting…
… but alas… if you’re looking for better answers than my personal experiences (which by the way, people LOVE to discount.).
Get outta here, with ya straw man defense.
