If i hear the term ‘mayonnaise bitch’ or ‘white privilege’ one more FUCKING time im about to go off. Some of you are SO FUCKING STUPID. im promoting EQUALITY. Not one race dominating the other. Yall are being so racist, sending me hate mail and calling me names just because…
By that definition then, me using racial slurs against a person of color—while i wouldnt do such a thing—would not be racist. Because i am a teenage girl and i do not have the power to oppress them. :) but also i disagree because anyone has that power, and while it may not be legal…social oppression is valid. I mean kids getting beat up because of their race and not given jobs because of their race is a form of oppression. So racism can happen to anybody. But i respect your opinion and thank you for not being an asshole!
By definition racism is:
"the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."
There is nothing about power or specifically political oppression. I realize that in the terms that people like to think of it, racism towards white people doesn’t exist. But by definition, it does. Besides, what I’m arguing for here is not just to prove that racism towards white people exists. I’m trying to prove exactly what you said, that people are being mean. Didn’t we learn in like preschool that being mean is not good? Like, can we seriously not just live one of the most basic lessons we’ve ever been taught? Just be nice. Seriously. Be a god damn pleasant human being.
I think this is a good sum up to why reverse racism does not work. Just watch it.
But I’m not saying it’s reverse racism. All I’m saying is that it’s mean. As you said before. I think there are some shitty ass fucking white people out there that wanna be racist and oppress people and be the supreme race and make it impossible for some races to be economically successful. Yes. White people like that exist. But the problem is, I think there’s a ton of white people who really feel genuinely bad for what some races have gone through and have to go through. There are white people who, even though we don’t understand your struggle completely, are really trying to do our best to try and make it better for you. We’re trying to encourage body positivity and equality and acceptance and not put anyone down. But then, when we try, we get called names. We get shamed for our race. As a white person, I honestly hate myself for being white. Cause I feel so goddamn guilty. Cause so many races have this idea that the best way to fix racism is to put another race down. That’s never gonna get us anywhere. It’s not “reverse racism” no reverse racism does not exist. It’s racism. It’s exactly what I stated before in the definition of racism. And if you don’t want to believe it’s racism, then just at least admit that it’s mean. If I asked you is it right to be mean? You’d say no. You wouldn’t say, well no, but it’s okay if it’s to white people. All I’m trying to say is that it’s not nice to call names, it’s not nice to shame people for their race. Let’s just love each other and try to help each other out. Damn.
I totally agree with this^^exactly what i mean. But i dont feel guilty at all for being white because i as a person did not to anything to oppress anybody. I do empathize for what others have gone through, but my empathy ends when they try to treat me with that same negativity.
No need to get mad I’m just saying that what you are stating is reverse racism. The definition of reverse racism is “a theorized condition in which discrimination against a dominant racial group in a society has taken place”, or racism against white people. And I have no idea what you are talking about because I actually stated that it is “if people do this to you, they are being mean, not racist”. And I certainly never said that being mean to white people is okay. Being mean is NEVER okay. I’m not sure if I’m right but you must think that I’m saying that being mean to white people is okay, when all I was trying to do is get you to understand that what people said to you was not racist. It was mean and a prejudice act, but not racist, because reverse racism isn’t real. Also someone previously stated that women can be sexist against men as an argument. That is completely wrong again for the same reasons. Women can be prejudice against men but cannot be sexist because they do not hold the power. Again, all I am trying to get you to understand is that being racist against white people isn’t real. I am not saying that being mean/prejudice to you and that people calling you names is okay because it is not okay.
Power is not actually part of the definition of racism… Or at least any that i could find. I disagree with you in ways but also i see where youre coming from. We just see/classify it a little differently, but thats okay. At least we recognize that its wrong, right?
