ACTUAL MESSAGE OF (500) DAYS OF SUMMER THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY REALIZES
Then rappers should make a change and be different.
Only misogynistic rappers need to though, right? No other misogynists? Just a genre predominantly made up of Black men. Okay.
Everything written by Caucasian Americans is pretty much turned into a racist bigot comment. We should just shut up now.
Gee, it’s almost as if White people are so unable to identify racism that they don’t even realize when they do something racist.
I’m sorry for being ignorant of this select person’s opinion. I’ll go stand in the corner.
Wow. You do realize you just completely reinforced what was said, right? How do you read an article that says that a man named Joseph Friedrich Blumenbach found some skulls that he believed were so well-formed that he concluded mankind began at the Caucasus region, with white people, and darker-colored people are merely white people who have been sullied through evolution, and conclude “this is a select person’s opinion.”
That’s a fact. That was all factual information.
That really happened. His interpretation spread LIKE fire and that is why white people started using the word Caucasian to refer to themselves. Even worse, people who are actually from the Caucasus region are not considered white in America. Legally, Caucasian was officially made to mean “white skin” in 1920 (and that was also in the article).
How the fuck do you read that and still deny that word is racist? And then you get “offended” when someone dare admit (as in it is a phenomenon that happens and someone is simply calling it to attention) that white people have a trend of being unwilling to empathize with things that don’t affect them.
Not unable; unwilling. You guys are being willfully obtuse when you choose to ignore facts (you literally just ignored facts!!!) just so you won’t have to admit that racism is pervasive.
As in, you could be a decent person and recognize that there’s obviously racial motivation behind the claim that “rappers should stop being misogynists.” You just don’t care about what happens to Black people, because you’re not Black, so you won’t put in any effort at all.
Gonna quickly throw in an epic quote I found on this article.
KJKJ: Gene Roddenberry, with balls of brass, got up on national tv and said, “hey people, if a geneticist took all the best DNA from planet Earth and put it together to make the best human the world has ever seen - he wouldn’t be a white guy.”
This is why I find the casting of a white actor in this role to be so repugnant. They are not whitewashing an Asian role, they are saying that the best genetic material that the entirety of this world and it’s diversity has to offer….still comes from a white guy.
Reblogging again for that
McGonagall is the best teacher everyone else can go home.
its hard to be brown and be punk
you’re like the only brown person in the whole goddamn concert venue in a sea of white and ppl give you stares like “wut u doin here” and if punk is supposed to be about ppl on the fringes then dont give me those stares cause you tell me who is more marginalized than the woman of colour
