Boy of nine killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school. He was told by other pupils ‘all white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.

Don’t you ever try to tell me there is no such thing as racism against white people. And don’t you dare fucking tell me it’s ‘reverse’ racism either.

And this was in the UK. He and his family are in their own country, their own homeland.

Repeat after me: ALL RACISM IS BAD. RACISM AGAINST ANYBODY IS BAD. PERIOD.

this is not racism!!!
this is what you call prejudice, where this behavior is not based on internalized behavior in society — it is based on how the people being prejudiced were raised.
what they did to this boy was horrible and disgusting and should not be overlooked, but it was not racism. it was prejudiced bullying. reverse racism still doesn’t exist. that’s all

No. The fucking definition of racism is prejudice based on race. This is racism. This is not institutionalised racism, it is not by any standards a major problem in society. But it is racism. Should we be concerned about racism specifically against white people? Of course not. We should be worried about fucking racism itself, because the concept of having prejudice against someone just because of their race is fucking dumb no matter who the prejudice is aimed towards.

^^^ Would have fucking loved this post to have been on my dash a few hours back when I was being hounded for saying racism towards white people is a thing. 9 fucking years old. All racism is bad racism.


I asked certain mental health professionals why racism isn’t listed in the DSM as a psychotic disorder—they never have an answer. Truth. Racism is a learned sickness perpetuated and spread systemically—read up on how systemically—and the long reaching effects and affects of this sickness has gone on, intensely aimed, for centuries. The backlash of this continues to manifest itself in the most horrid of ways.

It never has.

This is a concept most of tumblr can’t wrap their head around.

I would like a statistic on how many people received hate for believing that hate wont end hate

I agree except for the #1…anti-racists don’t hate ‘white’ people which is part of racism and the racist based nomenclature produced by racists—we just don’t like racism—from ANYBODY—period.

You may carry on with your normally scheduled PSA.

Anonymous asked: This blog is so stereotypical, on the day to day basis most educated African American people don't speak this way, we speak like everyone else. What people say is not based on race but their upbringing. So I feel as if this blog doesn't accurately portray African American culture as a whole and just perpetuates racial stereotypes.

blackproverbs:

You see what happens when people constantly make fun of the way a people has been known to speak? Black people who don’t want to be described as the “coonish classless black” reject any association with it as if AAVE were not a language and a history of its own; or that the whole world isn’t paying top dollar in multiple markets for the “black” aesthetic. People who send messages like these miss an opportunity to connect and find a pride, based on the respectable idea of black culture they have. Shame.

For the record AAVE does not negate education. This is the part where I tell you again that AAVE is a language of its own. This is also the part where I introduce you to the term “code switching.” Finally, Black culture is immensely diverse and continuously informed by different elements so I’m not sure what narrow idea you have of Black culture, but I promise you it’s not just shea butter, dashikis and afro puffs in the same way it’s not just twerking, rap music, and crisp white tees.

(btw I’ve been a top scholar my entire life, currently pursuing a masters at a prestigious university…so much for educated Black people not speaking this way huh?)

Boom.

I don’t hate anything but i dislike them . I don’t say anything about them until someone mentions them . Either i get mad white women or black women with nothing but white friends and feel like they must defend them .

Look at this white girl smh . 

White women thinks everything  is a joke and that black women hair is a costume.

let the bullshit saga continue

Now let’s move to social media . oh you’re going to love this now . 

i love how Solange slayed lame ass white woman . 

look at these white celebrity thinking it’s okay to say the n word . 

Iggy is racist toward just about every race . 

blackface time , This shit really annoy

 me seeing .

As seen above white women think it’s okay to say the N word. They make fun of everyone’s culture and think it’s a costume. They wear wear weave and don’t get shit for it while black women get so  much shit for it and some of them feel they’re not beautiful without it . What makes my day is when I get a message saying I made one of my followers go all natural. They think it’s okay to wear black face . I get racist messages everyday from a white girl because they’re mad I don’t like them . They’re the problem ,I don’t say anything about them until I see shit like this or they sent me bullshit . White women think everyone must want them and praise them and when you don’t they go crazy. The sad thing is white women do get praise by everyone . Google beautiful women and white women pop up . I was in tags and white girls were in the black women tag . My point exactly they won’t let black women have anything . Black women are only view  for sex or for their bodies in America and that pissed me off. That’s what my blog is for to uplift black women and for real  bwwm  relationships not the fetish shit  , but don’t message me about white girls and you will I will never post anything like this again .

This should have so many more notes like yes sir. Thank you.

I forgot Solange told a white girl to put a perm on her mouth lmao. I love her

05 fuck em

Mr. Colbert. On point and he does it so humorously too.

Definition: What You Owe Me

What You Owe Me- white people love to talk about the fact that they think PoC feel owed. Well, now you have your answer. This video is what you owe me. For every “…but me too” for every “Not ALL white people” for every accusation of “Reversed Racism” for every “Get raped with a jackhammer and die you ugly nigger cunt" that shows up UNOPPOSED but always on the COWARDLY Anon in curiouslycool's ask box, for every “Kill yourself nigger" that shows up UNOPPOSED but always on the COWARDLY Anon in whatwhiteswillneverknow’s ask box, for every single time you speak without listening and for every time you demand an explanation without being worthy of our time, you owe me, nay us, 500 romantic deaths.

This is what you owe and damn it, you are in a deep debt.  

This is what YOU owe. Not your ancestors. This is what YOU owe, not your parents. YOU. It is you who knock down our conversations about pain by adding more pain. It is YOU who step on our toes with your shouts of “Not all white people.” Well, maybe not ALL white people but definitely YOU. 

Until you bring us 500 romantic deaths of your unarmed, uncriminal like brethren who are all under the age of 21 given to you directly from the police, you don’t get to say ANY of the above. Each day, the toll goes up. Each day, you owe me more. It hasn’t happened to “You too” until you’ve paid your fare.

Fun note. Remember i told you I competed at Brave New Voice in 2008? This is my team and I wrote part of this poem.

I didn’t get to perform it with my teammates however for reasons I won’t get into. (Nothing bad just pointless explanation).

"HOW MANY MORE DEATHS WILL IT TAKE BEFORE THIS BECOMES GENOCIDE."

It takes more than the shortest month of the year to tell the truth.
