fear and love
you're probably here because AY THAT BITCH DONT FOLLOW ME but have no fear, i'm (Fay) this is just a side blog for stuff i wanna look back at.
You're just as bad as racist white people. You generalize and discriminate due to race just like all other racists in this world.

fyeahcracker:

Link me to how I’m discriminating against white people and what I’m holding back white people from. Show me what white people don’t have access to because I’m telling white people that they have to examine their position of privilege in this country. Show me how “you have to critically examine that you benefit from being white” is the same as doing or benefiting from this

But yeah, white people’s feelings :*(

I actually changed my mind, I’m adding more

Whoa, it does not stop

I will fucking wait for the link and bookmark this message. Messages like this are exactly why the fuck white people need to be critical of their positions of privilege… this is disgusting. On what fuck level on what planet is saying “you need to actually stop racism and recognize that you can’t just dodge responsibility for benefiting from privilege” the same as this? Link me. Link me to the negative consequences of white people examining their privilege you disgusting fucking child lol

7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

Click here to find out why these questions help you.

This is so important!

I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

Don’t be me.

This is huge. When I do interviews at the job I hate, if people just shrugged when we ask “do you have questions” i pretty much write them off unless they were a bamf with at least two other areas of the interview.

Things I Need White People To Understand

black-culture:

  • Slavery didn’t end with the Emancipation Proclamation.
  • Martin Luther King Jr. is not a cudgel to be used as a Yes-Man for any reverse racism propagandist.
  • Reverse racism does not exist.
  • "Post-racial" < ————- miss every last one of us POC with that shit.
  • Racism didn’t end with integration, voting, interracial marriage, POC being on tv, POC being in politics, POC being in films
  • Colorism is a direct cause of racism.
  • Internalized-racism equates only to a POC bearing a racist mentality to their own individual race(s).
  • Interracial marriages and relationships are not the cure for racism.
  • Biracial/multiracial children are not the cure for racism or colorism.
  • Adopting children of color while saying that their race, ethnic designation, and culture don’t factor into who they are and are either unimportant or irrevelant to their existence is not okay.
  • Fetishizing POC is not okay.
  • Fetishizing POC can go beyond sexual terms:
    Touching POC hair or skin without their permission is not okay.
    •   "I just want to adopt a ton of asian babies!"
    •  ”Indian people have such ____ eyes I wish I had them!”
    •  ”I love the way Latin@s speak with their accents.”
    •  ”Black girls with good hair are what I live for.”
    •  ”I wish I were [ Black / Asian/ Latin@ / Indian / Native & Indigenous] because then I could BLAH BLAH BLAH or be BLAH BLAH BLAH.”
  • There is no such thing as good hair. Stop shitting on women with naturally kinky hair.
  • A woman rocking her weave is just as valuable as woman rocking her natural.
  • You can still be racist and be married/be in a relationship with/have children with/have a relative or friend who is a POC
  • A POC can internalize racism for their own races and perpetuate white eurocentric beauty standards as well as respectability politics
  • Respectability politics and tone policing does not prove any point and only further enables racism/bigotry/ and colorism

  • Being bullied by a POC does not mean you’ve experienced racism
  • POC can not be racist  We can be prejudiced. There is a difference between the two. Run to your dictionaries if you want but unless you are a POC and have experienced racism first hand you do not know what it feels like nor do you have a grasp as to the magnitude of it in your everyday lives or just go here for this wonderful slideshow that explains why not in depth: http://wocinsolidarity.tumblr.com/post/53341129027/and-even-a-bonus-slide-for-any-remaining-queries
  • Being victims of racial profiling applies only to POC
  • The umbrella term POC refers to the multitudes of races and ethnic designations that are not White. That being said the varying groups of people who are Black, Latin@, Asian, Native & Indigenous have their own  layers of racial diaspora within them each with differing languages, dialects, cultures, traditions, politics, economic, and racial conflicts and issues. WE ALL SUFFER OPPRESSION BUT NOT ALL OF OUR OPPRESSION IS THE SAME. It may not be the best term to credit each individual race and or ethnic designations but it is the most understood, try though in conversations to be specific.
  • Traveling is not the cure for racism
  • Transethnicism is never okay.
  • Cultural appropriation is never okay.

  • Latin@ is an ethnic designation.
  • African American Vernacular is a real language with differing dialects depending on the regions a person is in.
  • It is up to POC and POC ALONE as to whether or not we choose to reclaim racial slurs used against us as terms of endearment for our own individual race(s)
  • POC don’t want apologies on behalf your race. We want you to use your privilege and take action within your communities to help dismantle racist and discriminatory agenda.
  • There is no such thing as the race card.
  • Starting off sentences about how you aren’t a racist but [insert your unnecessary opinion or thought as a white person] has already condemned you to be one
  • POC don’t owe you any justification or answers. There are books in libraries. There is the internet. DO THE RESEARCH YOURSELF.
  • If POC do take the time to answer your question READ IT. LISTEN TO IT. THEN READ IT OUT LOUD AND LISTEN TO YOURSELF. We have said exactly what we wanted to say, that is the only answer you need from us. Ask another POC if you must but do not keep pushing they same question on them either.

  • There is a difference between cultural exchange and cultural appropriation. Learn it.

“One of the most valuable things my very first nurse instructor said was this; you will be frustrated, and you will be frustrated often during the unpredictability of it all - and the key to survival is endurance, support, and a little bit of humor. The first you have inherent in you, the second you will give as well as you receive, and the third you will share to keep your sanity.”
