Listen hear white folks (and yes, I mean ALL of you),

There’s no sense in getting offended when we (Black people/oppressed people of color) don’t listen to your opinions. You’ve not experienced more than an ounce of what we’ve gone through under the hands of your oppressive bull shit (I’m talking currently, not slavery so I don’t want to hear any of that “can we be blamed for what our ancestors did” shit). Yes, you’re allowed to have opinions, EVERYONE is allowed opinions, however, we’re also allowed to not give a shit about your opinions, which most of us don’t. No, it is not reverse racism- no it’s not mud-slinging- no it’s not hate mongering- it is merely not giving any fucks about what you have to say UNTIL you ACTUALLY give a fuck about what we’ve been telling you for YEARS.

There is no malice in this message but you may sense a since of anger. If you have a problem with my angry tone then you can simply shut the fuck up cause I don’t care— you will not be heard because CLEARLY you did not listen to me.

That is all, for now.

Yup. That sounds about right.

Holy shit, I have never seen so much backpedaling in my life.

Omg. I’m still raging mad about this comment

Because I’m pretty sure that the ‘people’ she is referring to is white people. 

Just things white people do everyone. Just things. 

Not important cultural practices. Nope. Just things. 

And, seriously, almost impossible to pinpoint ownership.

*Ownership*

Because everything, absolutely *everything* must be understood in a western, capitalist framework of private property. 

(and seriously? No. Just because something is communal, traditionally held knowledge does *not* mean that no one ‘owns’ it and, thus, white people can just take that shit.)

If you ever find yourself making this comment or asking these questions wrt appropriation. Stop. Pause. And maybe go for a little walk. While you do so, contemplate you complicity in colonialism. 

Ignorance (is a poor excuse)

biyuti:

So that thread going on about cis people being ignorant of what ‘cis’ means and generally not knowing all the ‘politically correct’ things. And that we should be polite and forgiving, I guess if someone is using the wrong language or whatever.

There is a reason why focusing on impacts, rather than intent, is important. To use an analogy that I think Riley has before…

If you are standing on my neck, but don’t know, it doesn’t actually change the fact that you are standing on my neck. 

If I ask (or tell) you to get off my neck, responding with, “I didn’t know I was standing on your neck!” as you continue to stand on my neck doesn’t actually change shit. 

If I ask, perhaps with some amount of anger, you to get the fuck off my neck, responding with, “Well, if you said please, I’d get off but you are being rude,” WHILE STILL STANDING ON MY FUCKING NECK.

If, while standing on my neck, you finally hear my chocking and gasping breath, you say, “It appears I’m standing on your neck, maybe you could share your experience with me,” but not actually getting off my neck. 

Tell me. At what point is it okay for me to blame you for standing on my neck? Why do you even think I care about why you are doing it? I don’t. 

All I want is to breath and live, BUT YOU ARE STANDING ON MY FUCKING NECK!

I don’t care that you didn’t know. I don’t care that there may have been some magic word that would elicit your cooperation. I don’t care if you just want to learn. 

I don’t care why someone is oppressing me. Don’t care and I don’t want to hear it. 

Because you never fucking get it: all I want to do is live and breath but all I can see is your fucking foot on my throat. Maybe get the fuck off and maybe I’ll start caring about why you were doing it.

Types of Fools

darkjez:

zorascreation:

The White Apologist: “I’m so, so sorry for what my ancestors did to yours, man! It really breaks me down sometimes thinking about how despicable we were to you guys! Please forgive us!”

The Faux-Humanist: “Stop talking about race. We’re all just human.”

The Martin-Lover: “Yeah, but didn’t Martin Luther King say to judge people not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character! I have a dream today!”

The Lord of the Fee-Fees: “Don’t you understand how your comments about what SOME White people do are offensive to me and hurt my feelings? Not all of us are racist! By pointing out my “privilege”, you are spreading hate!”

The Wonderful White Friend: “I’m not racist, some of my best friends are Arabs!”

The Nigger-Lover: “Why can’t I say nigger? I saw it on the Boondocks! Why can’t I say nigger? Eminem’s a rapper! Why can’t she say nigger? What if she married a Black man? Why can’t she say nigger? What if he was adopted by a Black family?”

The Pea-Brained Peacemaker: “Maybe if you people weren’t so harsh and hostile, White people would want to listen to you? Try being a little calmer next time, why don’t you?”

The Silly Bitch: “I don’t care what you say, nigger isn’t a racist word. NIGGER.”

The Annoying White Feminist:  ”I think our shared experiences as women are more important than race at this time, look at the bigger picture! Woman is the nigger of the world, and I have a right to say it, you colored women are just being divisive!”

The Reverse Race Specialist: “How come there are no historically white colleges?  REVERSE RACISM!”

The Slave-Thrower: “Everybody was enslaved, not just you guys!”

The Fool: “I know you were fired from your modeling job because the casting agent said you didn’t ‘have the look’ and you were passed over for the job by ten other White models, but I don’t think this has anything to do with racism!”

The Colorblind Crook: “I don’t see color! There’s no difference at all between the races, we’re all the same deep down!”

The Bleeder: “Racism wouldn’t exist if you stopped talking about it. WE ALL BLEED RED!”

Sometimes, the ignorance of pro-Palestinians really starts to be bothersome.

iraniantabern:

oneohsix:

So then I look at my world map and realize there’s no Palestine.

And then I realize Israel will be there FOREVER.

Happy again :) WINNING.

Your logic:

Point 1: [T]he ignorance of pro-Palestinians [is] really bothersome.

Point 2: I look at my world map.

Point 3: [T]here is no Palestine.

Point 4: [I am] happy again.

Point 5: [I am] WINNING.

Therefore: [You realize] Israel will be there FOREVER.

What are you playing, Call of Duty: Ethnic Cleansing? Shit didn’t even come out yet and you rockin’ it like a boss. If you try to stab Logic in the back, you’ll end up hurting only yourself.
