i do not fucking care where you live
please spread the word about what is happening in scotland right now
Any of my followers from Scotland - could you tell me what’s going on before I read about it in the news’ biased ass spin?
do not tell me that I cannot be proud and love my dreads, because I am white. i am completely aware of their origin but i dreaded my hair because it’s a journey i want to go on in my young years, which quite frankly i don’t even need to explain to anyone because it’s my life choices. and also don’t even get me started because every fucker in our generation has stretched ears but we don’t talk shit about that and how that came from tribes and all of that shit because it’s not current news anymore and it’s someones CHOICE, which we are all allowed to have, it’s 2014 for crying out loud. there are multiple blogs on here run by people of colour, calling white people out for having dreads/wearing henna and even doing yoga because it didn’t originate from their culture. first of all, our ancestors are responsible for their choices, not the current generation. you’re complaining about hate from decades even centuries ago, yet you’re causing the hate to go on. don’t preach about discrimination/racism against people of other ethnicities, and then do the same to white people. you can’t solve the past, you can’t solve hate with hate. if something isn’t directly affecting your life right now, you are the person in the wrong by choosing to trash talk against humans you don’t know and you’ll never see again. racism goes both ways. it’s literally disgraceful to me that people even choose to spend their spare time trying to shame people for being happy with themselves or leading a life they want to. YOUR “culture” is naturally everyones culture nowadays, LOOK AT SOCIETY, you drive german cars, eat food from takeaway which originate from different countries, you wear clothes from different cultures, you listen to music from around the world, every device you own was probably not manufactured in your country. why can’t cultural changes bring people together to admire the world we live in, which surprisingly is a lot better off than the past you preach about. I AM NOT SAYING THAT PEOPLES PASTS AREN’T IMPORTANT, BUT WE HAVE GOTTEN TO A POINT WHERE THE WORLD IS MORE HARMONIOUS THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN, AND IT’S HYPOCRITICAL TO COMPLAIN ABOUT RACISM ETC WHEN YOU’RE GIVING IT OUT YOURSELF. and before you even think about it, if you wanna talk shit at me, at least have the fucking decency to do it in my ask box rather than exposing my images in a negative way on your blog. good fucking bye.
you cannot justify stealing from black cultures. you cannot blame poc for racism being alive and well. you cannot deny white privilege while benefiting from both past and current acts of oppression and racism. you cannot compare cultural diffusion to cultural appropriation. you cannot deny that racism exists while people are being murdered, rape, and oppressed, and while the genocide of many cultures an races continues today.
People who use a lack of education to justify subjecting poor people to poverty are fucking revolting. They’ve invented a system wherein poor people cannot obtain a quality education because they are poor and then they use that lack of education to justify their continued poverty. It’s self-sustaining, vile, oppressive, and a fundamental tenet of modern American conservativism.
appropriate white culture. dance offbeat at the club. scream at your barista when she doesn’t put enough splenda in your latte. clap at the movie theater when the credits roll. put your child on a leash.prefer to be called caucasian even if you’re not from the caucus region. only empathize with animals and yourself. write prolific dissertations on hunger games characters being oppressed then ignore oppression in real life.
white girls: “I want a Pocahontas wedding! What? Why are you glaring at me? It’s so cute and wild! There aren’t any Indians alive left to be offended anyways, duh!”
I’m white and part native, um ok not all white girls are shallow..
Instead of sympathizing with an oppressive group of people, who predominately do racist things, how about sympathize with people who experience racism?
