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.
Dude, I’m not white, but I’m pretty sure you can be racist towards anyone regardless of race.
Believe me, I live in an Asian country, and racism against white people (or people from the West in general) exists. Maybe yes, there is less/no racism against Whites in America, but shit it different in every country. Stop being so American-centric.
thank you^(via boopboopityboopboop)
except racism is a worldwide thing like have you ever read the news?????? IN AFRICA, dark skinned black people are considered undesirable. how do you think that came about? white supremacy & white racism
everybody always wants to say “but what about the Irish!!!” when discussing (supposed) racism against whites, but they sure as hell have no problem beating and murdering black and brown folk RIGHT NOW
I have seen so many videos of white people in parts of Europe discussing how much they hate black & brown people for “coming into their country and making things worse” and other bullshit like that
any discrimination against white people in majority-poc areas is a result of CENTURIES of white colonization & supremacy. so yeah white people brought that on themselves with their racist bullshit
I could go on but I’m sure I’ve made my point. if you’re truly Asian like you claim (bc white people always wanna pretend on here like they’re poc to say ‘but you CAN be racist toward whites!!!!’) you need to get your head out of whitey’s ass and love yourself(via thedeathcats)
