Gabi is flawless, as usual, so I have nothing to add except: This shit isn’t hard, white people. Why is this shit so hard for you to grasp? Critical thinking is a weak spot that y’all need to collectively work on, as a big ass group. Just… work on that shit and don’t open your mouths until every single one of you has shit figured out.
I don’t understand why people of a “minority” ethnicity will say things like
“THIS IS A “HOW FAR BLACK MEN HAVE HAVE COME IN THE PAST 5 YEARS” GRAPH. THIS WOULD NEVER BE IN THE NEWS” (just a loose example using the race i most commonly see this from)
Like the fact that broadcast television does not showcase the achievements of specifically one race is proof that this country is racist.
Do they broadcast a graph that shows how well specifically white or Asian or Hispanic men are doing? No. Why should there be a graph including only one ethnicity at all??
You want to end racism? (I’m talking to all ethnicities here):
- Stop identifying yourself as your color.
- Stop expecting to be treated any differently than anyone else because of your skin.
The longer we think of ourselves as different the longer racism exists.
When Morgan Freeman was asked in an interview how he felt about black history month he said he found it “ridiculous”
M: “is there a white history month?”
M: “i don’t want one either, black history is American history.”
and when asked how we are going to stop racism, he said:
“Stop talking about it”
and that is precisely my point.
For the love of fuck you ignorant douche you are ruining my DNC high.
Morgan Freeman DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ALL POC.
You understand nothing. You do NOT get to tell anyone how to identify. If the only way to stop racism is to ‘not see’ colour YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG and you’re probably racist.
We won’t be colonized, marginalized and shit on because of the colour of our skin and then be told that we need to stop ‘seeing ourselves as different’
I’m gonna go back to being brown and fabulous so kindly take your whiteness and stfu.
Also, fuck you, OP for killing her post DNC high. Fuuuuuuuck yooooooooou. Ignorant asshole.
OMG! Can I say how much I FUCKING LOVE IT when white people reblog/post this Morgan Freeman quote.
I LOVE IT!
SO FUCKING MUCH!
Man, things are so much better now that Morgan Freeman has been elected international spokesperson for all POC. I can’t imagine what it was like before we learned to stop oppressing ourselves with factual analysis of current and past manifestations of white supremacist/imperialist activities. It was amazing, I didn’t know you could reprogram white people just by not saying the word “racism.”
