I can’t do tumblr when people are this ignorant. Hypocrites.
Listen fellow white-skinned girl, we need to sit down and have a little chat.
There are black people literally being KILLED right now, and the violence against them is being fueled by the language you saw in those GoFundMe screenshots. This isn’t some bullshit joke about liking Starbucks; those comments are the deeply embedded culmination of hundreds of years of hatred, subjugation, and vitriol that has been affecting the black community. This country was built on the blood, sweat, and tears of black people who were forcefully brought here by white people.
And don’t even try to tell me it’s “not your fault”, because even though you exist now and not then, you still benefit from the actions those white folks carried out. The system that keeps the black community oppressed is the very same system that gives white people like you power and privilege over black folks.
It’s the very same system that I, as a white-passing Latina, have benefited from. Do you want to know how many times I’ve been stopped and frisked by the police? ZERO. Do you want to know how many times a cop has pulled me over for various reasons? TEN. How many times have I gotten even a ticket? ONCE, and it was for having tints on my windows that were too dark.
No one with two brain cells to rub together gives a flying monkey’s ass about your hurt feelings when a murdering cop is still free and a little black boy’s death goes on unavenged by a racist government that has been devalueing black lives since day fucking one.
Whenever I do something Renegade in Mass Effect WITHOUT a good cause… I really feel like shit, especially when it comes to killing Wrex or sabotaging the genophage cure…. I feel so horrible I cry my heart out.
It seems as though you feel that Caucasian people are at fault for America as it is today. You insult this race and continue to build up any other, particularly those of African decent. I will say that I do enjoy many aspects of your blog excluding your blatant racism towards white people.
Lol shut the fuck up.
You can’t be racist towards white people. If telling the truth about the white supremacist society we live in makes you uncomfortable - then you’re fucking racist yourself and trying to pretend otherwise.
if you follow this blog and you are white, you need to collect your white trash. they are making you look bad and not all of you are like that. you need to talk to your fellow white people. because they are fucking up
You know what is particularly frustrating for me regarding the events in Ferguson?
The fact that so many people, specifically white/white-passing people and non-black PoC, are still saying shit like, “I can’t believe this is happening in the U.S!”
Open your fucking eyes. What the bleeding fuck do you think this country was born from? Try paying attention when the black community speaks and *newsflash* you might learn something.
If you are white or white passing, stop fucking apologizing “on behalf if your race”. No one wants your apologies. No one cares about your apologies. They are empty and hollow and useless. All they do is divert attention away from the people that need just to focus on your sorry, miserable asses.
You want to help???
SPREAD THE WORD.
And if you are physically, financially, and/or mentally able to do so, go put your money where your mouth is (as the saying goes) and fucking do something to help instead of giving out faux apologies.
a word of advice would be that you point your anger toward those who have wronged you or your group, rather than those who haven't who happen to have the same color skin. otherwise you're no better than those racist police officers. you do realize you just told a single (white) person who sent a message of kindness (admitting fault and apologizing) to change the mindset of his entire racial group just now, right? two wrongs don't make a right.
Yes, me saying “white people” and not making excuses for the fact that all white people benefit from white privilege and the degradation of black life under white supremacist power structures makes me as bad as Darren Wilson, a white murderer who brutally executed an unarmed black teenager in front of his entire community with 6 bullets, 2 of which were to the head as Mike Brown had his hands up in surrender. That makes total sense.
Stop wasting your time? That asker came to you to give you a legitimate opinion that you shouldn't group all white people together. If you don't want people fighting your cause don't spout that black people are all victims and white people just don't care your position immediately becomes useless and this is exactly why your line of thought hasn't made social changes and never will.
Fuck outta here white girl. The fact that you are more energized to defend yourself as a white person and spout “not all white people” nonesense than to have these conversations and the ongoing brutality black people are facing daily energize you to confront other WHITE people and actually transform your white spaces is so incredibly telling. I don’t need fake ass “white allies” like you, who are so consumed by narcissim and their own whiteness that they can’t even see how they are reproducing white supremacy with bullshit like this.
Telling the people of Ferguson to take this anger and “channel” it to the polls, i.e elect officials that reflect them, is so fucking beside the point and victim blaming. This is ignoring disenfranchisement of the black voter (racism) and the poor voter (can’t take time off…
