PoC, especially in the west, are taught to NEVER do/say anything even remotely suspicious because ONE wrong move will not only destroy their life but also endanger their entire family.
White kids are never given ‘the talk’ about terrorism for obvious reasons, which is why one of those nasty ass teenagers just straight up threatened American Airlines on twitter.
pretty-little-geek asked: Thank you very much for bringing the color of my skin into the argument. It's clearly relevant to the topic. Yes, I am white. I also replied to an anonymous message which was difficult to read and was pretty much putting me down. When someone is anon and rude to me, I return the attitude. Maybe next time you could not be super shallow and defend an argument by using my skin color as the basis, therefore insulting a whole group of people. Thank you very much.
You’re white, I’m sure you know Iggy Azalea—white rapper, uses POC as accessories, wore a bindi in her video, etc.—let me show you a few examples of her excellence, child.
Read them. Memorize. Here’s her story:
- white girl appropriate AAVE for profit
- white girl uses POC, who have obviously been oppressed for centuries, as accessories, not unlike Miley—and I’ll get to her ass later, let me tell you
- white girl wears bindi, a symbol of not only a way of life and a devotion to a religion, but something that South Asians were killed over, simply for wearing it—literally, gangs of white people murdered South Asians—google “Dotbusters.” Cry. Feel guilty.
- White girl talks shit about everyone that isn’t white under the sun—as opposed to attacking backwards-ass southerners (note: I grew up in the South, endured the racial fucking slurs by these people, I can call them that) for their accents, literally applauds them.
While I’m talking about color—don’t give me your white tears, girl. I didn’t even need to bring up your crybaby race because just looking at your dumb argument gave you away.
Macklemore, J-Biebs, and Miley try to justify appropriating bits of black culture that black people literally get killed over (look up anything about Trayvon and Jordan Davis—I’d bother to give more examples. but it’s a waste, considering that you’re going to be too lazy and privileged to read those, because you’re likely not even going to read two articles about how they systematically enforced racism and are actively re-implementing Jim-fucking-Crowe laws)—you can suffer through people calling you out for saying dumb things. Lord, white ignorance.
Their ancestors trampled any POC that they could, and now trash them for being underprivileged, i.e., using AAVE. They lynched black people for existing in a country where they were forcibly taken from their families and enslaved—they were beaten and killed for attempting to learn how to fucking read, in many cases. They killed South Asians for representing their culture, but wear their bindis. They took over the land that belonged to my people for thousands of years, drove them out, and literally made them bathe in toxic chemicals to get back in—THIS WAS MY GRANDFATHER’S GENERATION, MIND YOU.
TL;DR, obviously didn’t learn my lesson, maybe you should try to tone-police me some more. Oh, and passive-aggressive thank-yous are cute.
