I didn’t say that those things are completely exclusive I said that being a person of color doesn’t make you black.

You: Thinking you’re doing what’s right when really you’re being racist

Hitler: Thinks…

And see…I keep telling y’all about these epoxy eating children.

"Female comedians remember Joan Rivers: The one who led the way"

Take a good look at that photoset.

Sarah Silverman, uses blackface in her ‘comedy’.

Lena Dunham, completely ignores WoC- unless mocking Muslim women- in her ‘comedy’.

Ellen DeGeneres, “dresses…

Coming for Ellen because of that specific costume is a reach. If you bothered to watch that clip it has nothing to do with race and everything to do with the amount of cleavage Nicki was showing. They’re good friends so it was all in good fun. Don’t come for Ellen.

1) she still did the thing
2) that has several markers of viewing Nicki’s Body through a Racialised lens
3) “She has black friends!” nuh-uh
4) nobody’s saying she’s never done anything good, but you can’t deny that she did at least one problematic thing bc it makes you more comfortable or w/e.
5) she’s also done an impersonation of Sofia Vergara that was fucked up Racialised Misogynistic BS
6) and I feel like there’s at least one other example of her having fucking up, but that’s all I got off the top of my head.

First of all, I never argued that she had black friends. I said she was friends with Nicki.
Second, Nicki isn’t black, she’s from Trinidad. Assuming that all people of color are black makes you racist. How does it feel like being on the same level as Hitler you racist piece of shit.
Another thing, you’re saying these impersonations is Ellen targeting their race when really she’s making fun of a specific person. Nicki’s race is not defined by her body. She wasn’t even born with that body. She altered her appearance. Sofia’s race is not defined by the way she talks. Not all Colombians talk like that. Some have perfect Colombian accents and some have perfect American accents. The way Sofia talks is unique to her. Ellen isn’t saying “this is what black people, or Hispanic people, or Trinidadians do” she’s saying “this is me as Nicki Minaj or Sofia Vergara”. You implying that a specific race is categorizable by characteristics that a few people from that group have is what’s racist. Colombians and Trinidadians are very diverse people and they don’t deserve the amount of prejudice that you are showing them right now.

FIRST of all, you said, (and I quote), “They’re good friends so it was all in good fun.”, which is a roundabout way of saying “she has Black Friends!”

everything else you wrote is apologist garbage that is reaching so hard that your URL should be StretchArmstrongTapDancingForWhitiesDontFiteH8WithH8 so IDK why you’re here anyway.

c u never

Ok. You’re still trying to argue that Nicki is black. You’re wrong. And racist. Also, I’m not fighting for whites. I’m not white. I’m Mexican. Get it right before you try to label me and make yourself look bad. Me defending Ellen has nothing to do with her being white and all with you Social Justice Warriors turning something that has nothing to do with race into something racist. I’m here to have fun and be way cuter than you will ever be! And as the fabulous miss Joslyn Fox said “You’re ignorant”

Ok. you’re still acting like “Black” & “Latin American” are mutually exclusive. and also I never said you’re white, but everything you’re saying is defending whiteness, so.

and yeah ok I’m just a SJW trying to look for racist stuff to gripe about. whatever helps you sleep better an nite, cariñ@ jajajaja

You’re acting like black and Latin American are the same thing.

#sloppy

I mean, y’all can keep arguing with this child, but she’s clearly anti Black enough to divorce Nicki from her own heritage. Y’all let this one stay a mess. Way over there.

Jai Rani Alisha: The Glorification of White Crime

smallrevolutionary:

daughterofmulan:

Take a facet of crime, and then look at television shows/movies that feature those criminals as protagonists.

White mobs.

White pirates.

White serial killers.

White political corruption

White drug dealers

I mostly want to talk about this as a TV phenomenon, but pick a crime, any crime, and Western media has probably made a movie/TV series/play/etc. with a white person that romanticizes the criminal activity. No matter what, a white person can do whatever terrible crimes and still have a TV/movie fanbase that loves them.

When you see black or brown people committing crimes on screen, you are to see them thugs and criminal masterminds and people to be beat down.

When you see white people committing crimes on screen, you see a three-dimensional portrait of why someone might commit that crime, how criminals are people too, and how you should even love them for the crimes that they commit because they’re just providing for their families or they’ve wronged or they’re just people and not perfect. This is particularly a luxury given to white male characters, since there few white female criminals as protagonists.

If and of the above shows were about black or brown folks, there would be a backlash of (white) people claiming that TV and movies are romanticizing criminals and are treating them too much like heroes and that it will affect viewers and encourage violence and “thuggish” behavior. And yet fictional white criminals get to have a deep fanbase who loves these white criminals, receive accolades and awards, get called amazing television that portray the complexities of human nature. Viewers of these characters see past the atrocious crimes and into their humanity, a luxury that white characters always have while characters of color rarely do. The closest that mainstream TV has come to showing black criminals as main characters is probably The Wire, and even then, the criminals share equal screen time and equal status as main characters as the police trying to stop them.

The idea that crime can be so heavily romanticized and glorified to such a degree is undoubtedly a privilege given to white characters. The next time you hear someone talk about Dexter Morgan or Walter White in a positive way, it may be an opportunity to rethink how white people can always able to be seen as people no matter what they do, while everyone else can be boiled down to nothing but a criminal.

I always felt extremely uncomfortable with this trope because, not only is it racist, but it tends to feed into the already too common propensity society has to humanize, romanticize and exonerate irrevocably terrible white men. Like if you’re a white man and you commit awful crimes, you will likely go down in history as a legendary celebrity and historical figure

BRUH

White privilege

Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.

This is a map of Asia. North Americans, you may notice this map is not solely comprised of Japan, Korea, China and Thailand. People in the UK, you may notice India is not  a continent. That is, if those of you who generalize entire continents can even pinpoint India on a map. 
Indians are Asian, gasp! And not all brown skinned people are Indian, also, gasp! There are an alarming amount of people, of all ages, from all backgrounds, who seem to be unable to process this.
I’m ethnically Asian. Since Asia is an extremely large continent, I could be from any number of countries. I am neither from India, China, Korea, Japan or Pakistan, yet not so surprisingly, I am still Asian. 
Yes, there are commonalities across regions, through the conflation of cultures, colonialism, globalization, transnationalism and movement of diasporas. Sometimes these are all the same thing. Rickshaws, rice and curry can be found across the continent.
But let’s not overgeneralize. You can also find Buddhists, Catholics, Muslims and Hindus across Asia. Cantonese Speaking Chinese Muslims! English Speaking Indian Jews! 
No, we are not all the same. Orientalism? (Please look up Edward Said for basic concepts) No thank you. 
So let’s not use umbrella terms, regarding Asians as a monolith while simultaneously denying the regional identity of millions of people- and how about we also not engage in xenophobia? 
Are you someone that thinks this way? Shame on you! You should perhaps invest in buying a map, and take a look at what countries are you know, where. 
Geography, people. It’s important. 

For anyone out there who might not be able to see this image, it is a coloured map showing Northern Asia, Central Asia, Western Asia, Eastern Asia, Southern Asia, and South-Eastern Asia. 
Central Asia consists of Afghanistan (debated), Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. 
Eastern Asia consists of China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan. 
Northern Asia consists of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Russia.
South Asia consists of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. 
South-Eastern Asia consists on Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Brunei, Cambodia, Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam. 
Western Asia consists of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt (debated), Georgia, Iran (debated), Iraq, Israel, Joran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

Y’all be derailing by speculating what’s western vs eastern Asia. It’s not the point. It’s not entirely about the actual map, it was the only one I could find at the time that even had remotely plausible regions. The point was to illustrate how large Asia actually is. And that’s it’s more than just China.
(Egypt, though, is not part of Asia. Sorry bout’ that. Anyone that thinks otherwise is following some fairly eurocentric anti-African rhetoric. Given that Egypt is a long standing mecca of technology, so to speak.)

Well… that’s because in a patriarchal society, the rights of black men COMPARED TO WHITE MEN imply the rights of dependents/family, etc.
Furthermore, then there’s the right not to be murdered. And… that has more to do with their own fear of loosing loved ones.
Black men GENERALLY don’t stay up at night with the fear that his significant other will be gunned down by a cop. Not to say it doesn’t happen, BUT it’s much less likely.
However, then there’s freedom of gender expression/freedom from gender roles which we’ve barely scratched the surface of. Then there’s freedom from social problems within the communities. There’s different kinds of threats to different kinds of rights.
Basically, black women have helped defend the lives of their male loved ones throughout history and helped black men get comparable rights to white men.
But it “being reciprocated” would mean black men defending black women’s rights from white encroachment… there’s not as many obvious threats to black women from white people beyond things that would also be levied against black men.
Basically, alot of things are being conflated here, it seems.

Exactly, people keep throwing misogyny on Black men, negating the fact that that ideology is derived from western cultures.
Reasons I’m NOT a feminist: Black men have been in no position to financially or socially oppress Black women (aside from the stereotypes that are perpetuated by all races in this society). Also, feminism further divides the Black man and the Black woman (considering the fact that feminism distracted Black women and killed the civil rights movement). We are aiding the enemy in keeping us divided.

To imply that black women are not encroached upon by white supremacy is ignorant. To assume that they are no obvious threats to black women is ignorant. To assume that they don’t need the same support is ignorant. To derail feminism because you assume that the black man’s struggle is exponentially worse is ignorant and proof of your privilege. I shall give you some literature. To better enhance the struggle of black women since you guys don’t take the time to actually learn about black feminism or feminism in general. Here, Here, Here and HereMatter of fact buy this book.Or this one. Or listen to/read any, Patricia Hill Collins, Andrea Ritchie, Loretta Ross, Angela Davis book, seminar, or talk. Please stop perpetuating the misinformation of the struggles of black women. Support is needed. Unity is needed.
