This is egregious.

Ask him which one is him.

How about not knowing is the reason why I as a black person would be so angry. How about slavery rendered these people, my family members GHOSTS whose identities will always remain a mystery to me. Whose language I can never speak again.. 
SO which one of those is me? They are all me. simple cheese faced ass bitch.

Um, excuse me. Learn some history. The only reason they were here was because OTHER AFRICANS WHO WERE BLACK SOLD THEM TO THE WHITE AMERICANS.

Haha lies and fallacies. I have a degree in history boo I’m already learnt!

YT PPL SHUT THE FUCK UP DAMN 
the amount of africans who sold africans was like 1% and dem neva know de true conditions of the slaves 
SO STFU 

When white people come with the “But Africans sold other Africans too!” I be laughing hard as fuck.
We sold you prisoners of war. We expected them to be RETURNED. You lied and said you needed help building your own country across the water. We expected you to hold up your end of the bargain.
Our people were never return and still we trusted you.
And then you just cut out the middle man and started kidnapping our folks left and right.
Every race of POC that has ever dealt with white people has inevitably been betrayed in the end. Every. Single. One. Because white people don’t know how to co-exist with POC. They just want to be at the top of the pyramid on everyone else’s backs.

So some people who were white enslaved some people who were black about four hundred years ago and this somehow relates to every white person alive today (and, in case you need reminding, /werent/ actually around to make those decisions so long ago) lol whut? And, black culture in north africa at this time was /dominated/ by slavery - one only has to look at the Mali to realise this, a people that basically killed off every other African tribe in that whole jorthern continent. But thats all a moot poibt. Because right now you sit behind a computer screen as an American (I presume). So aren’t you proud of the fact that your ancestors, who were brought over to be slaves, now have the right to be called equal in a previously white-dominated country? Why don’t you stop focusing on the past that cant be fixed and start being proud of the achievements of Martin Luther King for craps sake? Im sure your ‘ancestors would be proud of him too.

I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.’ Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

An excerpt from Letter From Birmingham Jail. I believe the great came for White liberals’ wigs here. Yep. He did. Oh and this stance he is critiquing is also White supremacist; one doesn’t have to be a vitriolic and violent KKK member to be racist and proliferate White supremacy. Simply allowing the violence by turning one’s back on violence itself via excuses shaped by privilege is an act of violence. Coretta Scott King elaborated on this as well, how violence isn’t only physical.

“I will give you an example of how race affects my life. I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. Live in Alpine, New Jersey, right? My house costs millions of dollars. [some whistles and cheers from the audience] Don’t hate the player, hate the game. In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood. So let’s break it down, let’s break it down: me, I’m a decent comedian. I’m a’ight. [applause] Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a fucking dentist! He ain’t the best dentist in the world…he ain’t going to the dental hall of fame…he don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin’ the white man can walk to.” Chris Rock

Well, America in a nutshell

“The black man gotta fly to get somethin’ the white man can walk to.”

Carefully notice the lack of logical thinking here. She’s not even following the line of questioning.

When privilege is in question, no matter how ignorant or intelligent a person is, they tend to retreat to illogical arguments that are easily refuted and they kinda resemble toddlers, except I actually like toddlers and toddlers make more sense.

And honestly, many White women would not tolerate such ridiculous arguments, lack of empathy and self-centeredness ("why bring up race if it’s not a problem for you?") if the question was gender and a White man posed this foolishness to them. They wouldn’t tolerate it. They would easily expose the ignorance. But magically when privilege (in this case White privilege) is in question, all bets are off.

The last GIF explains my life in so many ways… *rolls eyes*

The weirdest thing is that though this is from a satirical show (The Daily Show) and meant to discuss racism with humor, these are the real answers that most Whites give daily, so I couldn’t really laugh this time. I just felt tired.

I’m just going to leave these here…

This is actually pretty important in looking at how stereotypes and racism carry over from one country to another by the use of global media.

I think this blog has made a joke of itself. Those native american halloween costumes and stuff like that, I see your point but I think you're exaggerating the problem, like in every other subject in this blog. It's a shame that global mainstream media is mainly ruled by white americans, but take japanese comics for example: the characters in them are japanese in almost all cases. My point is you're mostly just blaming white people for being white. That's racism just as much as everything else.

I am confused. Are you saying that because White Americans are the majority that it’s okay? 

Because okay, let’s say that because they’re the majority and that’s why you see more of them in movies/tv/etc. 

Fine. 

But then…

Why is every other race pigeonholed in racist stereotypes? 

If when PoC were included in movies and books and we were more than just common stereotypes that would be one thing. But we’re either broad racist stereotypes or…not there pretty much. 

See, having a white guy be the hero and the villain be black isn’t the problem. It’s when that same set up is used over, and over, and over, and over and over. It’s when black people can only be scary black people or Natives can only be mystical tree talking people, Asian people can only be the engrish speaking comedy that it becomes a problem. 

It isn’t just that PoC are underrepresented, it’s that we’re underrepresented as real people. 

White people can make fried chicken too, you just need a recipe you ignorant human being, Jesus Christ you are dumb.

Women of the KKK, 1923.

No one can honestly tell me that this isn’t something that looks like it is straight out of the demonic mind of a scary movie producer. Sadly, it’s not. This is a real photograph taken of the female KKK members in 1923 ( just incase you thought white women were innocent ). As I stare at this picture my heart mourns for every strong POC, no not just those of African diaspora because we all know the KKK despises all us POC, they lived during the arguably the worst time for POC in America. They had no laws that could protect them or even had the chance to defend themselves in court like what we are rightfully and deservingly given today. Take a moment to pray (whatever your religion) for the souls of those affected by pre desegregation. Take a moment to thank those who lost their sons, daughters, Etc in the fight to be able to walk outside in broad daylight and not get lynched. Will racism ever end? I don’t know, but what I do know is that no one should have to put up with it as an every day nightmare. No matter what your ethnicity is we MUST stick together, for together we are strong. I dream of a day these people may never hurt our children.

this shit looks like american horror story

it was the black american horror story

My alma mater, Smith College, had a chapter of the KKK until the 1930s, though we generally pretend it wasn’t the case. The myth of white female innocence with regards to systemic racial oppression is so pervasive it’s ridiculous.

white women are not and have never been passive victims of the white supremacist patriarchy, they are active enforcers of racial oppression as means of holding shared privilege with their white male counterparts
