Let me ask you this, would it even matter if a white person DID care that our ancestors oppressed minorities? NO, it would not. You white privilege ranters would STILL find a way to make us out to be racist. I can understand anger and resent twords ACTUAL OPENLY RACIST WHITE PEOPLE. But don’t simply make the assumption that every white person out there is a downright racist asshole. Not all of us want to make the Chinese our slaves. Not all of us want to kill the blacks. Not all of us feel entitled to say “nigger”. In fact, if you open your narrow mind a little, you’d find that a lot of us are actually pretty decent people. Some of us don’t care if you make a joke about white people. Not all of us get butt hurt when you call us “Crackers”. But when you outright—and not to mention harshly— judge the entire white population based on a handful of assholes? Yes, we get offended. Why? Oh goodness, are you even ready to hear this? WE ARE HUMAN AND WE HAVE FEELINGS JUST LIKE YOU. And yes, I do understand many white people judge other races like that too. But despite how much you probably don’t want to hear this from a white girl, TWO WRONGS DON’T MAKE A RIGHT. There’s a difference between standing up against racism and just being a stubborn vengeful asshole. Yes, our white ancestors were horrible people, judging other races and punishing them for even existing. But aren’t you doing the same thing? You may not be oppressing us as much as our ancestors oppressed other races. But you sure as hell aren’t making anything equal and just here. You’re just continuing this cycle of discrimination and judgement and hatred. Quit wasting your time, picking out little tid bits of possible racism out of people who most likely don’t mean to be offending anyone and start putting all these shaming efforts into the REAL racists who openly state their dominance and hate for other races. Shouldn’t the goal here be for all races to get along and to not discriminate against each other weather they’re white, black, asian, mexican, indian, ect. ect. whatever, whatever? How will we ever achieve this if we’re still in the past and believing that all white people still want their slaves back. The goal should be for all of the non-discriminate people— DESPITE YOUR RACE— join together to CALMLY and MATURELY stop racism. And we may not stop racism for a very long time, but I know we can knock down the number of racist people by raising our children with better morals than just to hate one race because they had certain colored ancestors. That’s just not the way to go about it. This teaches our children nothing but hatred and violence. Remember Martin Luther King Junior and his determination to use a non-violent protest method? Look at how far that’s gotten us today. And I know i’ll probably get shit for being a white girl and standing up for myself, but quite frankly, i’m fucking sick of this white privilege preaching bullshit.

Yes, our white ancestors were horrible people, judging other races and punishing them for even existing. But aren’t you doing the same thing?”

“Yes, our white ancestors were horrible people, judging other races and punishing them for even existing. But aren’t you doing the same thing?”

“Yes, our white ancestors were horrible people, judging other races and punishing them for even existing. But aren’t you doing the same thing?”

“Yes, our white ancestors were horrible people, judging other races and punishing them for even existing. But aren’t you doing the same thing?”

“YES, OUR WHITE ANCESTORS WERE HORRIBLE PEOPLE, JUDGING OTHER RACES AND PUNISHING THEM FOR EVEN EXISTING. BUT AREN’T YOU DOING THE SAME THING?”

- Reclaiming The White People Tag

OP lacks serious critical thinking skills and this post is basic.

Here were your mistakes:

  1. Appropriating MLK’s message to attack Black people while erasing the context.
  2. Writing out the word “nigger” in a post when you’re not Black.
  3. Ignoring power differential and the existence of White supremacy.
  4. Centering discourse on whiteness and your feelings.
  5. More offended by accusations of racism rather than racism.
  6. Claiming that NOT all of us are racist while making a racist rant.
  7. Equating racism with people not being mean to each other, but ignoring systemic/institutionalized oppression.
  8. Thinking White people experience racial oppression.

Every cliche trick in the book. Try harder.
