Saw this posted on my facebook this morning and just had to share. It continually amazes me how many people here on tumblr and elsewhere in the world continue to think the answer to racism is more racism…or that racism against white people is somehow “justified” or “doesn’t count as racism.”
Not only do white people think you’re full of shit, but so do your fellow POC.
Watch the full video here.
Watch the video it is really good.
get outta here, birdie!!
Haven’t watched the video yet, but I’m just dropping in to say that you can’t be racist to white people ok byeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Oh my god. Please. Please provide me logical defense to your stupid fucking comment.
RACISM IS DISCRIMINATING AGAINST SOMEONE BASED SOLELY ON THEIR NATIONALITY/ COMPLEXION
YOU SAYING THEY CANT EXPERIENCE RACISM IN ITSELF IS RACIST
YOU SAYING THAT THEY DNT DESERVE THE SAME RESPECT BECAUSE OF THEIR SKIN TONE IS RACIST
YOU SAYING THAT THEY ARE NOT EQUAL TO YOU IS RACIST
YOU DISCRIMINATING AGAINST SOMEONE BASED ON SOMETHING THEY HAVE NO CONTROL OVER (their skin tone/nationality/gender/sexuality) MAKES YOU AN IGNORANT PIECE OF SHIT AND I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT YOU WILL LEARN ONE DAY WHY WHAT YOURE SAYING IS WRONG,HIGHLY OFFENSIVE AND JUST PLAIN IGNORANCE.
WHEN YOU SAY WHITE PPL CANT EXPERIENCE RACISM YOURE JUSTIFYING DISCRIMINATION
DISCRIMINATION, EVEN AGAINST THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSE TO HAVE IT BETTER ISNT JUSTIFIED ITS STILL SHITTY ITS STILL WRONG AND YOURE JUST AS BAD AS WHITE PPL WHO ARE RACIST THERE IS NO SILVER LINE WHEN IT COMES TO DICRIMINATION
Typing in caps doesn’t make you right. White people cannot experience institutionalized discrimination based on skin color. We just fucking can’t. One person being a dick to another is obnoxious; an entire society built upon the abuse, manipulation and systematic degradation of a minority is discrimination. White people will never not enjoy a position of social favor and we will never not benefit from a system built on the oppression of people of color. If someone’s being a dick to someone for any reason, including skin color, call them on it, just like this woman is doing. It’s never okay.
But it’s not institutionalized oppression.
You cannot equate them.
By doing so, you are the oppressor.
