Yes, white people, you are this predictable. You all—all as in every single white person ever, all as in all white people. This time, I am actually saying “all.” So maybe your reading comprehension will function the way it’s supposed to—you all need to sit and think about why it is that you always claim to not be racist, but you, and every other racist and/or privilege denying white person make the exact same arguments every god damn time. If you really think it’s only coincidence, you need to reevaluate yourself in way that will make you uncomfortable before engaging with another PoC again.
… They’re just sooo predictable. It makes me sick to my stomach.
And it’s ridiculous just how EVERY WHITE PERSON EVER comes up with this exact bullshit. No one ever says anything outside what’s shown here. And then they try to say that we are indoctrinated? If they repeat this shit over and over again to me they’re the ones who are indoctrinated.
You angry assholes. In highschools like in California where whites are a minority, they get bullied, sometimes physically, for being white. Anytime there’s a minority in a location, they get it. I get that racism against blacks are way, way more common, but there is such a thing as reverse racism. ALL racism is bad. And I *DO* believe that that person in the picture is not a racist. That doesn’t make that person a halo’d angel and I doubt that person feels like one, but not racist. What even are you guys trying to do?
You’re kidding, right? There is no such thing as reverse racism, because even if you’re mean to white people, you don’t have a system of oppression behind you. Racism =/= being bullied. Racism is getting shot because people automatically assume you are a criminal. Racism is having ONE person of your skin color be shown in any medium, as a side character, never as a main character or a love interest, if they are shown at all. Racism is not being seen as a friend, it’s being seen as your automatic “I’m not a racist” marker, which means you see people as objects, not humans. Racism is having bandaids and “nude” nail polish being the color of white skin. Racism. Is not. Bullying.
The question I have is this: what should white people do then? If having a best friend who’s non-white is because they want to prove they’re not racist, if going over to build an orphanage for kids in say Haiti isn’t enough, not seeing race, and wanting equality. How is this the wrong actions to take? What would you have white people to do fix racism then? Should they all just go off to a remote island where they can’t hurt anyone ever again with their existence, or would that be racist too for excluding people of colour from being outcasts? Yes, I will acknowledge that white people don’t have to suffer through ‘profiling’ and yes, we do have privilege. But explain to me how any of the actions listed above is an incorrect way to try and actively fix it. All posting this like this does is demean the people who might want to help fix it, and makes them avoid doing so.
So please explain to me, a privileged, racist by default white person how I can fix racism other then wanting equality for all and working to do just that through equal (you know, that pesky word that makes equality) rights for all. Meaning if a non-white person gets 20 years in jail for stealing a biscut, then so should I. And if there are scholarships for simply being born a non-white skin colour, then there should be scholarships for whites without it being deemed racist. Please. I’d genuinely like to know.
Somebody else take this one.
