    yoisthisracist:

    Look, I don’t want to say definitively that you’ve set a hilarious and tragic new low for how stupid a racist asshole can be, but you’re the one whining about someone being against racist, how it’s impossible to change how someone thinks, and then claiming that your mind has been made more racist by my words. Great job, you sad asshole.

"You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all."

  • Question: please tell me how i benefit from slavery as a white man still in 2014 you fag. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    yoisthisracist:

    Awwwww, is sumbuby too stupid to understand that the entire economy of the US, is built on slavery and it’s legacy, that dehumanizing and exploiting people who aren’t white is a central part of what gives the US it’s power, and that it has used this power to export the philosophy across the globe? Bloogblbogogoooooooo, waaaaaaaah, nice try you dumb motherfucker. Try telling me one way you don’t benefit from slavery in 2014 or any time, you stupid asshole. Is the reason you can’t because you’re too lazy or too stupid? I know a lot of you people are, lol.

"

This reality is a bit harder to swallow: There are more white people in the US and Canada because the US and Canada were established using the systematic genocide of Native peoples, the theft of Native lands, and the labour of enslaved peoples in the past and immigrant peoples currently who were and are never meant to stay or survive.

And now you’re uncomfortable. Good.

When you accept and acknowledge that census figures reflect a long history of marginalization, it is preposterous to use these same figures as the benchmark to which you measure the inclusion of marginalized people.

There’s a great piece in the Toast about representation and diversity (‘Proportional Representation’ Has No Place In Diversity Discussions by Léonicka Valcius) today. (via whineandbeer)

it’s not about matching numbers, it’s about acknowledging that media should reflect the existence of women and not-white men. The above link is about books but it applies just as much to movies and television and even video games. We’ve settled into this idea that “white man = everyman” and it’s absurd.

Are there more white people in the US and Canada than not-white people? Yes.

Is this “reality” just a naturally-occurring event? No.

Does it justify the overwhelming white male majority in media and pop culture? Never.

  • Question: So cops are racist assholes, no doubt, but what's the solution? Telling cops "don't be racist assholes" is clearly not working. We can't just not have cops, there are assholes out there who will steal all my shit and kill me for fun. And if we tell everyone who's not a racist "don't be a cop", then all the cops will be racists forever. - Anonymous

    I’m actually not positive we’re actually telling cops not to be racist assholes.

    if we’re actually telling cops to not be racist they’re terrible listeners

  • Question: In a recent study, they found that for every 100 people claiming to be abducted by aliens, 99 of them were white. Are white people crazy or are the aliens racist? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    yoisthisracist:

    You know what, I’ll buy that: racism against white people is as bad a problem as alien abductions.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.
