White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.
You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
its so easy to be dangerous in a racist society. just by doing nothing you contribute to normalized oppression.(via official-mens-frights-activist)
Hillary Clinton [WSJ]
So you send a message by keeping children in cells as if they were some kind of fucking dogs?
This is Clinton, your “feminist leader”. Fuck her.
Your fave is fucking garbage who doesn’t deserve to lead :)
Ew. Ew, ew, ew. And especially gross, given how it was Bill Clinton who proudly instituted NAFTA, which had a huge hand in destroying Mexican agricultural economy and making conditions worsen for all these children—to USA’s benefit! Give it a month or five and we’ll have to deal with her making stops at taco shops and using corny guacamole metaphors to show Mexican Americans how much she ‘gets’ us.
Clear message, indeed. And it is not missed by us.
