My cousin has two deaf parents and just posted
“You don’t know the struggle until you run out of toilet paper and everyone in your house is deaf.”
and i’m laughing reALLY HARD
So you are against generalisations, but only generalisations about certain groups of people? I agree about white privilege and I agree that white people are not profiled, I’m just saying generalisations are a logical fallacy and a waste of time.
White privilege (or White Supremacy thinking) allows people to view this somewhat dispassionately and tone police instead of actually considering that White people often try to make Black people be silent about racism BY DERAILING AND INSISTING THAT THEY’RE ALWAYS RIGHT OR HAVE MORE INSIGHT ABOUT IT. I may not always be that dispassionate as I actually have skin in the game 24/7/365
a waste of time would be you following someone who posts about this very topic somewhat frequently but apparently never actually reading their posts
a waste of time would be me replying to someone I don’t even follow when I obviously should have already clicked the ignore button
Sweeping generalisations are awesome.
um, yeah I maybe…catching hurt feels from
generalizations my lived experiences might be bad, but hey, look on the bright side: at least those accurate “generalizations” of mine don’t get any White people Stopped-and-Frisked, denied housing, charged more for car loans, fired first & rehired last, jailed more for the exact same offenses, and, and, and
(you do know tumblr has an unfollow button, right?)
too often White people deal with discussing racism in one of two ways:
1) demand that Black people don’t talk about it
2) but if White people DO have to talk about it, then insist that they’re always right and that White people somehow innately know more about the ills of racism than Black people
i literally hate when people always try to dismiss race and act like it “isn’t a problem anymore”
i’m mixed. my dad is a 6’3 black male, my mom is white w/ blonde hair and blue eyes.
you and your family have never been randomly pulled over by cops on several occasions just so they could ask your mom if she’s “okay”
there’s still a fucking problem
