A Palestinian girl’s message to Israel after Zionist forces shelled her home. Occupation 101: Voice of the Silenced Majority (2006)
Western media works really hard so we don’t see this, we don’t see this articulate little girl
Really? REALLY? Are you sure there’s no such thing as racism towards white individuals? ARE YOU FUCKING SURE?? Let me tell you a thing. There IS racism towards white people. And if you HAVENT noticed, we are no longer the majority. And also, fuck you. Look for my next post, because racism towards white people exists, I promise you.
Yeah I endured YEARS of bullying for being white. Coming home crying everyday. People wrote it off as “fun” because I’m white, I’m the racist one. My cousin’s wife got beat so badly she almost died as a child because she was the only white girl in her school. I’m fucking sick of this “it’s not racism if they’re white” shit.
Why can’t you people understand your hurt feelings do not equate systematic oppression, ya’ll overdramatic as fuck. Ya’ll can experience prejudice, but you fuckers won’t even take that. Nah you want to feel special and call people racist when it doesn’t even fit. Go drink some fucking apple juice and sit down.
Lmao @ all the hurt white people commenting on this post.
Being white is sooooo tough
WON’T SOMEONE THINK ABOUT THE WHITE PEOPLE
I’m gonna play the world’s smallest violin to commemorate the hurt feefees
Because everything that happens to white people equates to the systematic oppression and demoralization of cultures and peoples that happened and is still currently happening to POC…yes yesssss
Obviously you guys don’t get that I realize racism still happens, and of course I wish it didn’t, but what I am upset about is that it happens to Caucasian people and when it does, it is socially acceptable, whereas when it happens to any other race it is an affront.
We’re not saying being white in general is difficult
We are saying STOP BEING IN DENIAL OF THE FACT THAT WHITE RACISM EXISTS
no matter how small it is, it exists
And the fact that you may be on the opposite end of the problem scares you.
Why would it scare me? I feel no sympathy whatsoever for anything that you may encounter. Who started this entire revulge? White people did, white people engendered this entire charade. If you go to a different country and are severely oppressed b any standards then I will cease to debate over this. But really? Yeeeeeeaaa white racism in America, Canada, any european-based or european countries is virtually non-existent and you can’t argue with me or any other self-aware POC about it, to be QUITE frank.
White people think we’re afraid?
We’re still under the foot of yall for what reason? Years and CENTURIES of oppression and all of a sudden you want to yell racism, for a little bullying and maybe some hurt feelings? Waa-waaa, so sad. Sad enough that we’re still bearing the cross for being different and not white with blonde hair and blue eyes. Or the average Becky you see on the street. We’re still not white enough to fit in this world, but I guess that’s not enough for yall.
Discrimination towards white people isn’t called racism, it’s called discrimination.
I’ve tried relentlessly to understand my fellow-blacks that don’t believe that one can be racist towards an individual of European decent in America. As children of slaves and the segregated and victims of current racial discrimination and racist system I would expect us to see all racism as unacceptable and unjust. What is racism? Racism is discrimination based on race. There is a White race just as much as there is a Black one (since we all non-verbally agree to classify Americans according to their ancestry and skin pigment), so how suddenly does a concept—racism—itself become racist and discriminate against Whites..making it virtually impossible and illogical for Whites to be discriminated against? What makes racism impossible for a little White boy or girl to experience? If a White child is being treated poorly, differently, rejected, mistreated, and discriminated against literally because of his or her skin pigment and ancestors, why can’t another child, a Black child or a latino one, who is treated the same in another community not relate? Why all a sudden, does the definition of racism not fall in the case of a Caucasian? How do pale skin pigments and European ancestries of some innocent people justify the prejudgment, hatred, assumptions, bad treatment, and dismissing that many Blacks and other races cast on them? We should be just as ashamed of treating a White person badly or unfairly because of two characteristics that they have NO control over (pigment & ancestry) as we are appalled that we can be treated badly or unfairly for those same uncontrollable characteristics.
How we all a sudden decided we’re the only race that can experience racism, I don’t understand..
But no child deserves to be mistreated because of the skin and the parents she never asked for.
Black people: Slavery, racism, and American racial society had a “life-changing” impact on our country and its people. The impact was humongous, and while we were clearly the receivers of the punches for hundreds of year, the effects did not end with our people. Racism has destroyed our nation, our economy, our minds, and our society; it has infiltrated our homes, our families, our education, our politics, our minds, and our perceptions, and it has caused us all suffering. All Americans, White, Black, boy, girl, child, adult, poor, rich, all of us. I understand saying, “White people, this racism that y’all now experience from other races exists because of the original racism your fathers introduced into the country, thus that is indirectly your fault.” But to DENY all together that all races—including Whites—are suffering effects from slavery and Black-oppression is dangerous and unproductive.
While ‘White’ and ‘Black’ describe two groups that incorporate all people of specific characteristics, we must remember that the automatic members of such groups are INDIVIDUALS, and at the end of the day, we must treat each other as individuals…Any White person does not automatically deserve your hate or mistrust because of some other White individual in another time and place that did you wrong or your family wrong. Just because we are victims, that does not mean we are entitled a right to victimize the relatives of our attacker.
CAN WE PLEASE WORK ON ENDING HATE ACROSS THE BOARD.
