If white folks really want to stop feeling sorry for the sins of their forefathers, stop contributing to white supremacy, see your privilege and actively call out racism where ever you see it. Then you can stop being but hurt EVERYTIME you see something that hurts your feelings.
you know I get it but really?
“why cant white men act like human beings?” I HATE the massive generalisation here, everyone can be racist or not act like a “human being” no matter what race or nationality you are.
it really pisses me off.
oh you hate the massive generalization? thats funny bc we hate the massive genocide
yeah and so do I, but I didnt do it and Im not the one being racist towards anyone. yeah it fucking sucks what happened and it was stupid I cant even begin to imagin and put into words how it must feel but I didnt do it and Im sick of being plastered as a racist when I get upset over people putting me in the same group as the “white men” who fucked your culture over. I didnt want to offend anyone but you offened me when you posted this and Im just over it. yes stand up for what you believe in but stop generalization I didnt do it noone I know did it and it happened before anyone I know was born no I dont agree with it.
who said this was about you personally? calm your sense of white guilt down damn not everything is about you personally
I know its not but it kinda is about me since Im white and Im seing it every where and no I have no guilt for being white, calm down your racist actions and not eveything is about race, grow up.
instead of getting pissed at natives for reacting to 500 years of abuse how about you redirect that anger towards the people who are causing us to react. you don’t wana be potentially considered an enemy? don’t act like one.
ok clearing this up, not pissed at natives I support you standing up for your rights well for a matter of fact I support PEOPLE standing up for their rights and no I have anger because of you! for pulling the race card and trying to make me feel like shit for being white and generalising. I would still be pissed at you even if you werent native, I dont come down to race like you do.
You’re only okay with people fighting for their rights as long as YOUR feefees aren’t hurt. You’re the one who pulled the “race card” whining about how you were offended by this picture in the first place because it said “white man” so cut the bullshit.
there is a very dangerous trend on tumblr around the topic of race issues. Many, myself included find terrible and insulting images that often denigrate and anger people of color. these OP’s of these images are overwhelmingly white. many racist, all however are stupid and ignorant. the gut reaction is to insult and call out the racist act and further separate ourselves from this obtuse insensitivities. if you are anything like me tumblr is a place of refuge from daily triviality and we don’t want to see this bullshit. at the same time calling out ALL white people is dangerous. simply because it isn’t true. I grew up around white people and white 98% of them are shitty insensitive possibly racist assheads, 2% of them are alright. that may be an exaggeration however we all know at least ONE white person that we feel really are trying to see it from our perspective. these allies are those we need to associate with to teach and explain what racism is. it is them upon which we have to rely to check other whites on their racism because as shitty as it is white supremacy has bestowed upon them white privilege. unless you want to denigrate yourselves to the point of skin bleaching; identify, associate, befriend and educate those the W’s among us. itl be a slow as fuck process but white folks egos are as fragile as a really fragile things and they freak out way too easily to get into an argument with. we can’t move toward if we keep finding wedges to separate ourselves. as fucked up as this situation is in the US and worldwide more than anything we need allies to educate the rest of white folk. we NEED unity, they need education. this has been a PSA
long story short
not all white people are shitty
just most of them (95-99%)
i myself know 2.5, (and i live with two)
I’m watching the Bio channel.
This white man is accused of killing FOUR WOMEN, his WIVES at that…
The media effectively portrays many stereotypes of all people of color. I don’t have to go into the specifics of the negatives of Black men, Muslims, “illegal” immigrants, the list continues endlessly. However what is crazy is how white men are portrayed. We have seen countless images of white men consistently and devastatingly commit wanton acts of violence. Those acts commonly top the list of the most heinous crimes and yet they are seen as innocent of wrongdoing. That shit is crazy. Stop falling for that chauvinist patriarchal arrogance. If left unchecked they will continue…
[Today, Mandy was sentenced to 16 months in prison. During the sentencing hearing, she made this statement to the court, which was interrupted 8 times, by both the judge and the prosecutor. In the end, they spoke more during the time alloted to Mandy than Mandy spoke…
its tragic that the educated that want to make a difference are maligned; while the educated who maintain the status quo and therefore perpetuate the evils they were taught thrive happily.
