i’m home sick with the flu and i just received this email from my father
STOP REBLOGGING THIS MY DAD THINKS HE’S SOME INTERNET SENSATION AND HE WON’T SHUT UP ABOUT IT
still Hangin with Yo frienz one year later
I'm just some Asian-American girl in her early-mid twenties who sometimes likes to make personal/fandom/reply posts. Let's be awesome friends!
alllifeisbittersweet asked: I read "Do you hate white people?" and was wondering, do you hate every white person? While white people have committed horrible things in the past, present and certainly future, haven't other peoples committed similar things to other or their own people? I'm not trying to make this about me, I'm not even thinking about myself. It's just that the definition of racism is to believe your race is superior to others and to group all people of one race together. Isn't that what you're doing?
THIS HAS TO BE THE MOST FRUSTRATING QUESTION I EVER GET ON THIS BLOG goddamn
(I’m sorry for “internet yelling” and I get the feeling you have just started learning about racism but I swear to god if you read that and you still have the nerve to message me this question I have no more patience left to be understanding with you)
Okay dude. If you are white, I won’t automatically assume you’re going to do something horrible to POC. BUT if you are white, you generally benefit more from the social construct older white people have made. People are more likely to listen to you. People are more likely to want to conform to your tastes. People are more likely to believe what you say about other cultures than its own natives. And even if you, as a white person, has not harmed a POC, you should at least take historical responsibility for the means of how you have become more privileged than other people.
You say you’re not trying to make this about you, and I might be inclined to agree, but by redirecting the guilt onto other people you are kind of making this about you.
