and if you’re white, neither are you. Start realizing that.

and if you’re black… neither are you. Only Trayvon Martin is Trayvon Martin. Stop fighting ignorance with more ignorance, or racism with more racism.

Tweastastic, BE SILENT. You are…

No, Because you have no right to silence my opinion.

I am in no means spreading racism or white supremacy. I am not saying that what happened was right, or that he had what was coming to him. Trayvon was royall fucked over by a racist asshole who deserves to have the full sentence available placed on his head. I am not propagating that white people are superior to black people in any way. Show me one sentence where I have.

Yes, I understand there is a white privilege system set up in america, and minorities are the target of many police jurisdictions.

That being said the black community has no more right to cry out that this happened than the white community does. I am appalled that this racist fuck shot Trayvon. There is no reason that racism should still be so dominant a social structure in the United States. 

However we need to realize that Racism is not a one way street in America, and hate crimes by minorities against other minorities and against the majority go largely ignored.

Dear lord.

The black community has no more right to be upset than whites? Right. Because we have absolutely no more right to be upset about a system that hurts us infinitesimally more than white people. NO. WE have more at stake. For you, it’s a whim. For us, it is SURVIVAL. WE ARE TRAYVON MARTIN because WE ARE THE ONES TARGETED. WE are the ones who have to deal with our children being killed by cops on a regular basis for ‘fitting the description,’ NOT YOU AND YOURS. It is LAUGHABLE that you even think such.

And whenever crimes against the “majority” are committed, those minorities get thrown under the jail. See any sort of statistic about sentencing, death penalties and skin color.

We’re not all Trayvon Martin. Some of us are Emmett Till, Aiyana Jones, Rekia Boyd, Lenard Clark, you’ll notice a pattern here if you take 5 seconds to Google. What black people are not is George Zimmerman. Now, go address the people who think we’re here for target practice. Or shut the fuck up. That works too.

Amen, Charlize

ugh charlize, you just interrupted what would have been a beautiful look at how fucked up the industry is in terms of race and ethnicity.

then fassbender joined in. 

then swinton tried to help and sat back down.

and then clooney just took the rest of the conversation.

he was well-meaning, but we’re talking about BLACK WOMEN, not just women (and when i say that, i don’t need a qualifier because you all know i mean “white women”)

the only person in that room that could speak to that experience was viola

and the moment she got started, you cut her off

yeah, she’s gorgeous but fuck, that was not her point. she never even got around to it because all of you wanted to play white savior

^this

This kinda shit always happens. :/

And then the evil specimen that is Fassbender interrupts her and says:  ”Do you think it’s because you’re African American?  Do you think that’s still a problem?  Or do you think it’s improving in terms of ah, in terms of like a race issue”.

Viola’s face:

What do you think?  You share a goddamn planet.

Oh my god. See. This is why we can’t talk to white people. We just CAN’T. Because they REFUSE to think critically. And they claim to be of higher intelligence? Chile, please. This right here goes to show you that people of color are DONE with the race conversation with white people. Because white people don’t want to hear us. They don’t care. We are here to stroke their egos, be their slaves/maids/servants/sassy sidekicks. We don’t get to be human. We need to stop relying on them and make our own shit, support our own shit and leave them to their willful ignorance.

In the instances when POC say shit like ‘Oh I can’t stand white folk’ or ‘Damn white people’, they aren’t saying ‘Oh I think they are inferior, I want to humiliate them, abuse them, enslave them and wipe out their people!’, they’re saying ‘Damn, after a couple hundred years of white people thinking I’m inferior, humiliating me, abusing me, enslaving me, and trying to wipe out my people, I don’t wanna deal with them.’ The context is completely different.

Reblogging every time I see it.

Okay, stuff like this is really starting to frustrate me. I’m white, and never once have I ever (within conscious reasoning) treated anyone as inferior, humiliated, abused, enslaved, or wiped out anyone. How is it ANY LESS RACIST to make a vague generalization about all white people? 

I get that, as a white person, I have ridiculous privileges that other people don’t have access to. I’m not proud of them. I never asked for them. I didn’t make up any of this stupid science that differentiates between skin color and race. And I’m tired of being shamed for it, just because I’m white.

Yeah, I’m not saying you have to hang out with white kids all the time. I get it, “you don’t wanna deal with them”. White people don’t have that same knowledge and understanding that people with darker skin tones do, and it’s not something I’ll ever understand. That’s okay. But man. Don’t turn around and make me ashamed of what skin color I happened to be born with.

Candyandcusswords? Shut the fuck up. You’re doing absolutely NOTHING to add to this conversation except derail and make it ALL ABOUT YOUR POOR WHITE FEE FEES. BAWWWWWWW THE BLACK PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH MY WHITENESS EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE CLEARLY AND SUCCINCTLY EXPLAINED WHY!!!! WHAT ABOUT TEH WHITE PPL!?!?!?!?!

ALL. WHITE. PEOPLE. HAVE. WHITE. PRIVILEGE.

Meaning that ALL. WHITE. PEOPLE. have been oppressive in some way or form, whether they meant to or not, whether they realized it or not. This is FACT. Instead of bawwing about your own bullshit, how about you actually go and do some fucking racism 101ing? It ain’t that hard. Google is a free fucking resource.

There is no racewide “Black Success”. It is a myth.

Oprah don’t mean shit. She work for herself. She works for Whitey. And Whitey still hates her.

The Obamas don’t mean shit. They work for the U.S. They work for Whitey. And Whitey still hates them.

Tyler Perry don’t mean shit. He works for himself. His films thrive off of Black insufficiency and the denigration of Black Women/Queer Black Men. He works for Whitey. And Whitey still hates him.

These people are INDIVIDUALS.

“LOL BUT THERE’S MARTIN LUTHER KING JR DAY”

And what happens, then? It’s treated as just another day off, like any holiday.

“LOL BUT THERE’S KWANZAA”

Which was created in response to White Supremacy. And it’s barely being celebrated anymore like it used to be. It gets referenced by Whitey 442754y473y834426736524 times, but who really knows what it’s all about?

“LOL BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF MOVIES WITH BLACK PEOPLE”

In the majority of mainstream Whitey-funded movies with Black people, what are we? How are we represented? Magical Negroes. Mammies. Dark Sluts/Black Bitches/Ghetto Hos. Thug Niggaz Wit Gunz. Uncle Toms/Aunt Thomasinas. Black Men on the DL. Unhealthy. Crass. Uneducated. Nasty. Whores. Self-Hating Blacks. A Local Color. Angry Black Women. Angry Black Men. Ignorant Africans. “Cool” Caribbeans. Token Black Friends. Oreos.

“LOL BUT THERE ARE RAP STARS! #TEAMWEEZY”

Go. Fuck. Yourself.

“LOL BUT YOU GUYS HAVE COLLEGES!”

Yes, we do! And so do Native Americans. Created in response to the sickening actions of: Whitey.

“LOL BUT MICHAEL JORDAN!”

He’s like every other Black male sports star. He just managed to get big. Black athletes’ success ultimately comes from and goes into the pockets of Whitey. Look at how they trade them cross-teams like, you guessed it, slaves. Look at how these Whitey recruiters come into Black neighborhoods and start making selections of Black boys to go play sports ‘cause it’s their “only way out” (that’s a fucking lie) like they’re picking prime Niggers at an auction. I’ve seen them. It’s disgusting.

“LOL BUT MICHAEL JACKSON! WHITNEY HOUSTON! BEYONCE! BLACK PEOPLE MUSIC IS COOL!”

Yes, everything Black people do is so “cool” and “counter-culture”, even down to the way we eat food. If we decide to breathe a certain way, 3494854757 white people will come to us trying to convince us that we’re just so “sassy” and “awesome”. Every last fucking thing we’ve made or done artistically has been co-opted, denigrated and/or appropriated by Whitey.

“LOL BUT.. BUT.. “

I’m sorry, what?

“…BUT… BUT… I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU’RE KNOWN FOR!”

My point exactly. You know nothing about us, Whitey. You know what the media wants you to know.

I’m about to write an post, as well as a guest post to a well-known external blog about this, and if need be, I will submit it to my local news organization for review, and I need for you to understand that before I proceed. This is not something you…

ok well to be fair, using the word “niggers” and saying the phrase “death to all white people” is different as prejudice vs. discrimination. you can’t really stop people from using words like “niggers”.. and who is to judge whether the word “fag” or “cunt” is any worse than “nigger”? tumblr doesn’t have time to go around removing all the blogs with sad words but they can definitely remove one that hypothetically actively poses a threat.. just my 2 cents

Glad to know you support the white supremacy. By the way, “deathtoalln****rs” is also a tumblr that exists. Doesn’t that hypothetically pose a threat? I don’t see your ass coming out to support that shit being taken down. Fuck you with a chainsaw dildo, bitch.

I guess multiple complaints by different people about a word that most people know is derogatory and racist is not enough? Please shut the fuck up.

I love how the white folks are trying to bait super-eklectic into the “reverse racism” trap.

sourcedumal:

No, white people, in a society that is controlled by whiteness, naming something after African Americans is not racist, and 99% of the time, when something IS named after African Americans, whiteness works to shut it down.

Note any argument about the following:

MLK Day

Black History Month

HBCUs

UNCF

BET

Divine 9 fraternities/sororities

FUBU

And I don’t see y’all asses ever doing the goddamn critical thinking to figure out WHY those fucking institutions exist in the first place.

I don’t see y’all asses saying shit about British Airlines or Norwegian Cruise, but let us black folk get somethin named after us and y’all lose your minds….

I need them all to go pick up a history book & figure out why we created our own institutions. And then spend some quality time investigating why they’re so traumatized by their existence.
