Racism against whites is real, I hate when people try to tell me it’s not. How long ago were your African American ancestors enslaved ? Let. It. The. Fuck. Go. You’ve been apologized to and received restitution a million times over by now. Stop harping on it, and using it as…
Fuck this dumb ass bitch. I have 0 patience for this type of white whining.
And I have 0 patience for blacks who think they have a right to be RACIST against white people because they think we owe them something. You want whites to not be racist yet you’re racist yourself.
It’s funny you call me racist, yet I’m not. I actually date a black guy. I’m actually gay rights activist, democrat, feminist, etc. I’m more for equal rights than you. You only care about equal rights when it comes to you. You don’t care about equal rights for all.
Fuck off cunt.
I want to preface this by saying everything I’m going to try and help you understand can be MUCH MUCH better explained by Black people, who have actually experienced it, and who I am just trying to repeat to the best of my ability. The Black Tumblr community is incredibly informative and eloquent and you’re better off respectfully reading some of their blogs or posts about racism to educate yourself than listening to me, but I don’t think you’ll do that.
Something about your language tells me you’re seeking attention instead of trying to honestly express feelings of injustice committed against you as a white person by Black people (lol even that sounds so silly but anyway). I’m not optimistic about the probability you’ll read this and actually try to understand why Black people “don’t like” whites but in the off chance you have an empathetic and/or logical bone in your body, here goes.
First of all, in your original post, you mean “prejudice” instead of racism. It’s an important distinction. Here is a really good post explaining it by wocinsolidarity. Basically, in order for racism to exist, there has to be a an hegemonic, institutional structure in place that supports and perpetuates systematic and ideological prejudice against a group or groups of people, from which the group in power benefits. We white people don’t experience racism because we have white privilege. The subjugation of Black people is required for us to have that privilege. So while we may experience prejudice, it is incomparable to racism. Even if we don’t go up to a Black person and use a racist slur against them or refuse to sit with a Black person in a cafeteria, we are still complicit in racism just by being white and benefitting from a racist system. (***I will add more sources about reverse racism here later.)
This is an incredibly, disastrously oversimplified metaphor, but in the interest of making the concept as accessible as possible, here goes. Imagine a finite amount of money and everyone has the same amount. There is no money left. In order to get more money, you have to take from someone else. So a group of people decide to create a system of institutions (here the “metaphor” aspect begins to crumble but bear with me) that takes money from another group of people. The people taking the money have to be sneaky and make sure everyone thinks it’s the fault of the other group that they’re losing money, so they demonize and dehumanize them to make it seem like that’s the reason they’re losing it but really it’s because of the systems the now privileged group have created. Wa-la, institutional and ideological prejudice has now turned into racism. In order for one group to have more, the other has to have less. We have white privilege because Black people experience racism. We cannot experience racism. So in a sense, yes we DO owe Black people. It’s because of Black people (aka at the expense of Black people) that we white women are hailed as the epitome of beauty, it’s because of Black people that make more money, it’s because of Black people that we barely get a slap on the wrist for terrorizing entire communities because we don’t like pumpkins, it’s because of Black people that we get famous for doing what they do better. We elevate ourselves by shitting on them, even if we don’t do it PERSONALLY, we’re still complicit and we still benefit from their oppression.
Ok the second misconception you seem to be operating under is that racism doesn’t exist anymore. First I want to say there’s a reason that apparently most Black people you’ve encountered would say that racism is still alive and well today and that most white people you’ve probably encountered, including yourself, would say that it doesn’t. It’s because we don’t experience it. Whether or not your parents and teachers are card carrying KKK members or not, we are ALL indoctrinated into the ideology perpetuated by white supremacy that allows us to continue to benefit from the subjugation of Black people. Racism is so incredibly normalized, we don’t even see it if we don’t experience it. We just don’t think it’s a big deal. There’s a REASON though that most models are white, that most people in jail are Black. There’s a reason that representation never matches population. IF you think that the reason is just that white people are better at being models or that Black people are just more prone to committing crimes, then you’re admitting you’re a racist. If you DON’T think those are legitimate reasons, what’s left? Oh. Racism.
Just take a second to read about the racist shit Black people have to go through on a day to day basis. Just listen to Black people. Do you really not believe every single Black person who says they experience racism on a level far more pervasive and comprehensive than being called the n-word by a white supremacist? If you’d like, I can take a different approach to this and show you example after example of systematic racism. Please, in all seriousness, if you don’t believe it still exists, let me know and I will spend the next couple of hours showering you with examples, in our government, in our school systems, in our jobs, ect. Or you could, like I said before, just listen to Black people.
Finally, Black people don’t “teach their children hate.” They teach their children survival. You have to be mistrustful of white people if you’re Black because we white people don’t even think racism exists. Imagine being being bullied every single day and you tell your teacher or guidance counselor about it and they don’t believe you’re being bullied. Anyone who has the power to bully you doesn’t believe you’re being bullied. They say you’re playing the victim, that bullies USED to exist but bullying has been eradicated by anti-bullying campaigns. You’d begin to not trust those people. You’d begin to “dislike” those people. You wouldn’t put yourself out on a limb time after time wondering if perhaps the next privileged person might believe you. Imagine the only people who believe you and want to do something about it are the people who are also being bullied. Are you honestly going to be upset when Black people don’t want to be your best friend because you’re white? It’s honestly logical. White people don’t respect the humanity of Black people, we don’t believe anything they say about their own experiences. Why the hell would they like us?
That was the soft version. This is ONLY a very recent and VERY short (very VERY short) list of names of all the Black people killed by white people for being Black in the United States. #MichaelBrown #VonderritMyers#TrayvonMartin #RenishaMcBride #DarrienHunt#JohnCrawford #AdaishaMiller #AlesiaThomas#AlyanaJones #DarneshaHarris #DeloresEpps#EleanorBumpurs #EricaCollins #HeatherParker#JacquelineCulp #KarenDay #KendraJames#LaporshaWatson #MackalaRoss #MalissaWilliams#ShellyFrey #SharmelEdwards #ShantelDavis#RobinTWilliams #RekiaBoyd #PearlieGolden#MiriamCarey #ShereeseFrancis #ShulenaSWeldon#TarikaWilson #TyishaMiller #YvetteSmith #JordanDavis #ErvinJefferson #AmadouDiallo #PartickDorismond #OusmaneZongo #TimothyStansbury #SeanBell #OrlandoBarlow #AaronCampbell #VictorSteen #RonaldMadison #JamesBrissette #OscarGrant #KennthChamberlain #AbnerLouiama #KimaniGray #KendrecMcDade #TimothyRussell #StevenWashington #AlonzoAshley #WendellAllen #TravaresMcGill #RamarleyGraham #TyroneBrown
I’d fucking hate us on sight too. So honestly, get the fuck out of here with this whiny baby bullshit. There are Black lives on the fucking line and Black lives that have already been taken so that we can maintain white privilege. Don’t you dare complain that Black people are “reverse racist.” Don’t you dare tell them to “get over it.” You’re nothing. We’re nothing unless we fight the system that allows others to be MURDERED for our benefit. We look impossibly fucking ridiculous sitting here complaining about “waaah Black people don’t like white people” when we don’t even have the capacity, the HUMANITY to step back and listen to voices that aren’t our own, to see and understand that bigger picture when it’s right in front of our faces. Your complaints are so insignificant and unimportant in the face of the genocide of Black people that is STILL happening in this country, that never STOPPED happening. The death of Black people is the pinnacle of the racism pervading this country. The extent of the violence that extends beyond blatant murder is incomprehensible. So please disappear or become a human being who isn’t just a worthless speck contributing to the fatal disease plaguing the Black people in this country that is us white people.
