People of Color cannot be racist. Lather, rinse, repeat. We can be prejudiced, but we can’t be racist because racism entails the power to economically and socially oppress a group of people based on ethnicity, which we clearly don’t have that power.
And a question: Why the fuck is THIS okay? Why isn’t this man in jail? This is clearly racist. No one is making a big deal about all the people wearing shirts calling Zimmerman a ‘cracker’. Which is RACIST.
I got a lot of folks across the spectrum of humanity, but things like this is why I’ll NEVER believe that racism is dead. So someone wearing a shirt with the word “cracker” on it is a cause or equivalent as a man killing an unarmed boy when he broke LAWS in doing so?
This is my fault tho for just following anybody, I’m glad this internet world got so many folks feeling comfy to say shit like this behind their computer screens tho.
I agree with nakedinmybeds comment. Racism from both sides is still racism. No, wearing this shirt is not equivalent to murdering someone but it is still ignorance in its highest form.
For the record, I would say this to anyone in person no matter their race, etc.
Unfollow me if you like. I don’t want ignorant people associated with me anyways.
Thanks and good day. Dumbass.
I already don’t follow you dumbass (which I could guarantee you wouldn’t say to me in person haha) and if you think this man should be a in jail for this tee shirt then it shows me you’re as ignorant as he is for wearing the shirt. The first post was saying “why isn’t this man in jail?” This is what people do, whenever someone feels any kind of thing, they try to come out of left field with something idiotic to divert from any real issues.
Good Morning tho, Dumbass haha I like that. I just got into some petty internet name calling, I’m so Tumblr with it.
Further, the etymology of the word “cracker” refers to the sound of the whip meeting the flesh as metered out by White slave masters. The proverbial whip meeting the flesh is still evident today with systemic oppression of People of Color.
Therefore, cracker is a word that equates to a statement of historic, anecdotal fact whereas nigger is a racial slur whose etymology and intent has always been derogatory and purposed in the derision and oppression of PoC.
Have a nice day (:
^^^^THIS COMMENT RIGHT HERE!!!!!
Dude should be locked up for wearing a shirt? Oh.
Bolded for emphasis.
Also, i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, OPPRESSED PEOPLE CAN’T OPPRESS THOSE WHO OPPRESS THEM. White people can’t experience racism. Prejudice, yes, but not racism.
You want him to be locked up for wearing a shirt calling Zimmerman what the fuck he is, but you don’t have a problem with Zimmerman walking the streets free after he fucking KILLED A BOY IN COLD BLOOD? Fuck nakedinmybed, fuck wannawatchusfuck, and fuck each and every motherfucker who agrees with their bullshit.
Are you fucking kidding me? So I have white skin but no power, but because my skin is white I therefore oppress people of color? Really? Remind me how I’m doing that again? Furthermore, to even say that people of color can’t be racist is pretty frickin racist to me. So because they have dark skin, they ave special rights? Let me remind you of course, that you are COMPLETELY wrong about what racism is. Here ya go: “Racism is the belief that inherent different traits in human racial groups justify discrimination.” Sounds like racism to me, Nowhere does it specifically say that you can’t be racist if you are OPPRESSED. It definitely doesn’t say you can’t be racist if you are a Person of Color. To say this man should be in jail is to go to far, but to say that he should be allowed to do this isn’t right either. If you think only white people can be racist, you ARE a racist. Whatever justification you might think you have, you are still racist. If you think people of color can’t be racist, you ARE a racist.
