PSA to white people: you will NEVER know how it feels to be Black so don’t fucking tell us how we should feel or what we should say to make YOU comfortable. Fuck your comfort! Our lives are filled with discomfort so we can just live! Fuck your opinion about our hair, bodies, minds & souls! They’re not yours! We aren’t here for you!
When people are continuously saying to not be racist and we try the best but when we hear a description of someone for what they look like and when they’re ‘black’ it’s called ‘racist’.
Thinking that just telling a fact is being racist would be racist actually.
And then there’s people who keep saying “white people do this”
And “black people do that”
That’s really racist because not all black/white people are like that. There are white people who break laws, there are black people who can become a lawyer, police, hell, our president is black. Sure he’s not that great but he sets an example that anyone can become a president.
White people smoke marijuana, do drugs, be stupid, rob people.
And white people do a lot of shit also that causes them to go to jail.
Moral of the story, stop being racist by saying ‘white people’ this or ‘black people’ that.
Don’t JUDGE people on the outside, isn’t that what Martin Luther King was trying to get out?
I know this won’t stop all people from doing this shit because it’s too long of a rant to read, but that just proves your lazy. Being too lazy to read something isn’t something you should be proud of.
And your probably wondering ‘why is this not in a read more link (or whatever it is) it’s because 1. I’m not scared of people reading this. Judge me, whatever the hell you want I’m just trying to get across a point.
2. I’m on my iPhone so it’s kinda impossible.
Rant done, go back to your lives.
And don’t say shit that I’m racist, because I’m not the one saying white people only follow the law or black people are smarter when it comes to death threatening situations. I saw PEOPLE, follow the law or don’t, PEOPLE, are smart when it’s a death threatening situation.
This Week on "Double Standards"
- *white man carries rifle*
- White people/Government: They're only exercising their right to bear arms. They are protected by the Constitution. You can't take our guns away!
- *black man carries bebe gun*
- White people/Government: Ha and these thugs wonder why they get shot and killed by the police they're all just a bunch of gang members. They're a menace to society! Get rid of them all!
When I was a kid even as a teenager, I never seen in black and white. I seen colors. When I saw a white person, I didn’t “see” a white person. I saw a soul. When I see black I didn’t see oh that person looks like me, I seen a soul. I seen a family.
Now, black people put down white people, and I either make them the enemy or I’m accused for being “anti-black” when I clearly love my culture, who I am, and my hair.
I get it. Never forget the past. Don’t forget your history. But when will we start seeing souls in color like children and not in black and white?
I was stripped of my colors.
You’re. Describing. Prejudice.
Q:Do you agree with the phrase "white people have no culture" (obviously in reference to America) do White Americans have a culture?
The White American culture is not the type of culture people think it is. It’s the type of culture steeped in oppression, greed, capitalism, and violence. That’s America. That’s especially White America. Other than that there isn’t any one culture.
White Americans who identify with their ethnic heritage may have cultures they practice (Swedish, Russian, Irish, etc.) but those who simply strip themselves to the basic Whiteness… not so much.
How Most (White) People Rebuttal Important Present-Day Discussions
- You know, way before we done it, your ancestors were doing it for years. Centuries even.
- You never looked into your history of YOUR people doing this kind of thing now, do you?
- So what if this is true? Didn’t your people do the same thing? Alrighty then.
- How come no one mentions when XYZ race did to ABC race?
- We’re going to overlook your valid 20 point argument and deep google one little fact about your ancestors and that will trump our need to discuss this further.
- Yes, our ancestors set this system in place, but we are trying our best to make it “less obvious” so you can go about your life as normally as we’ll allow it. And when you say something against it, we’ll invalid your argument by saying “your ancestors taught us and we improved on it by tenfold, so take your defeat quietly and shut up!”
When people try to justify racism their reasoning is so stupid to me, they literally say shit with a thought process like:
“racism is gone, I sit next to a black person everyday in my math class.” Or “racism is gone, my neighbor is Mexican.” or my favorite! “Our president is black”
Racism and Segregation are two separate things!
Cultural diversity is a stand against segregation not racism! Racism is still present even though our president is black and your best friend is Asian! Yeah for the most part segregation is diminished but for people in our country to honestly think racism is just as much gone, are just being ignorant to their surroundings and are ignoring what doesn’t effect them personally.
Why isn’t there a White History Month?
Whenever I hear a racist (and I DO mean RACIST) talking about “Why isn’t there White History Month?” I agree with them.
Yes. Let’s start a White History Month.
Let’s have an entire month where we educate people about the hundreds of years of mass murder, slavery, rape, mass genocide, massacres and vicious and unwanted colonizations that has taken place over the course of history. Because it hasn’t been “White History Month” EVERY month of EVERY year already, right?
Just the mere fact that you refuse to even understand WHY there is a Black History Month in the first place, just the mere fact that you feel so offended by there being something that doesn’t include of involve the people of your race that you want a “White” version of it shows ignorance in it’s purest form.
Don’t appologize for being white.
You know, it would be REALLY nice if the first thing I don’t see in a Black people’s tag is something related to White people and wondering “is there REALLY an app for appologizing?”
99% of blacks are racist
Black opinion vs white opinion on race
When we as Pocs generalize white people, we are summing up the system of oppression brought on by white supremacy, its standards and how it effects us as well as the way it makes us perceive ourselves. When white people generalize Pocs, its dehumanizing an already marginalized and powerless group. The reason is simply that white opinions on other races come from privileged perspectives, which hold power. So it doesn’t matter how many tumblr “bullies” call you out on your racist BS disguised as humanism because the stereotypes that we perpetuate to non-POCs will never keep you from getting jobs, housing, a good education and most importantly staying free from oppression.
So if you think it’s unfair, or reverse racism think just how much “minority” opinions mean on a large scale (white) level compared to your opinions of us. You hold power whether you know it or not. That’s why we can say certain things and you cant.
