Glittering armor for Asha, Nina Ricci
what I’m learning is that you really have to word things very clearly so that white people can understand them
because most people of colour have encountered the kinds of things I’m talking about, so they’re already on a level to understand what I’m saying
a lot of white people seem to misunderstand things that aren’t direct and explicit because they’re just not on that level, they haven’t had that life experience
and it’s kind of annoying, like. I’m not blogging for your edification
white people do not get a say in what is racist and what is not. ever.
Not even when calling each other out on it? Or acknowledging it in themselves? Letting it go unchecked seems unhelpful…
white people can call out other white people on racism, but that’s not what this is about.
what this is about is that when people of colour point out that something is racist, white people for some reason think they have the right to argue.
white people do not get to decide what constitutes racism and what does not.
oh, thank you!
I was at the mall today and overheard this dude talking to two lesbian chicks. I hear him ask, “So which one of you is the guy in your relationship?” And the one girl looks into her pants and says, “It’s not me. How bout you? Are you hiding a dick in there?” Then her girlfriend looks in her pants and says, “Nope, I’m not.” Then the first chick looks at the dude and says, “Hmmm, guess that’s why we are lesbians.” And then I lost my shit.
I hate cis lesbians so much and this is why
black women come in literally every shape, color, and size
and so when a person says they aren’t attracted to black women
it’s not actually about being physically attracted to black women
it’s about an aversion to blackness
and just knowing a person is black is seen as repulsive
regardless of physical attractiveness
the closer you get to finishing your cup of tea the more quickly it cools down and that’s why I hate the laws of thermodynamics
