As a rule, I try to keep this space relatively organized, though I may on occasion break that rule. I drink my coffee black, two sugars. Im not the type to write an about me, so feel free to ask! I'd love to talk to you.
The down fall of smoking is that you begin rewarding yourself by having a cigarette.
It starts innocently enough. “Wow, I didn’t kill anyone at work today. I’ll celebrate with a cigarette.”
Then it suddenly turns into; “Wow, I ate dinner. I deserve a fucking cigarette, give me a fucking cigarette I’m not playing, fucker.”
You just summed up my week dude. Trying to quit is hard.
This ad campaign for a Lebanese organization called KAFA, which promotes gender equality and works to end violence against women, turns the sound wave patterns of derogatory words into physical wounds. The result is a sad but powerful reminder of just how deeply scarring verbal abuse can be.

are you fucking kidding me
this is exactly why no one likes you white people
over 12,000 followers smh
You white people? you sound just as ignorant as the attention seeking bigot who made the twitter post. “Those who anger you will conquer you”
oh my fucking god
FALL OF THE FACE OF THE GOODAMN EARTH!
for the “we’re not all like that” white girl above, yes you pretty much are. you may not all call black people nigger but the vast majority of you all don’t include PoC in your idea of people you think deserve not to be bullied (i.e.: white feminism, the shit above, non violence). Y’all never include people of color in you shitty liberal views. “Rights for gay and queer people…..well except the black ones” or “No drones on US citizens, but it’s okay to use them on innocent Pakistanis” either of those sound familiar? So, don’t try to demonize and invalidate our views of white people, while trying to venerate yourself for not being what you think is racist.
And all of you are the fucking same too. Thinking that white people are racist and don’t care about those of color, as you stated. You’re stereotyping and generalizing a population as a whole. That makes you dumb as fuck. That is absurd. You are saying we don’t include you in our liberal views? Are you fucking stupid? You go around playing the “I don’t get treated fair cause I’m black” card, that is not true. First of all, white people don’t have half the programs, TV networks, clubs, grants, scholarships as those of color have. Second of all, most of you only hang out with your own color because you’re too busy thinking the world hates you cause of your skin color. You clearly are racist and don’t have white friends because what you said is so stupid I can’t even deal.
Ps: the president is black, you ignorant bitch. *Unfollowing your ass
I’m going to kill you and eat you dumb bitch :)
Another sighting of white tears.
Let’s talk about that bolded sentence for a minute, because that is probably the most used excuse white people use to justify their hurt feelings. Well, to say it plainly, it’s a fallacy. A bold-faced lie. Bullshit. However you want to say that it’s not true, there ya go. So, the scholarships one is ass lie. Fastweb, ya know…the scholarship site, did this study and whaddayaknow? White people get the most scholarship and grant money. In general. How about that!?
So, about TV? Yeah, no sweetheart. Not even close. Did you try? Absolutely adorable. Oh, and BET is owned by Viacom, which owns channels like MTV, VH1, Nickolodeon, AND CBS. It’s a mass-media conglomerate and here’s a list of its assets. Spoiler alert! There’s a lot of them. Oh, and the governing body, The Board of Directors, is pretty white.
Basically, you tried and perhaps before spouting bullshit, you do a little research so you won’t look stupid. I mean, that’s inevitable but you can at least try a little harder. Google is your friend. Boolean is your language. Go on and do better.
“Ps: the president is black, you ignorant bitch. *Unfollowing your ass”
WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWO STOP BEING SO FUCKING PREDICTABLE RACISTS
Reverse racism is not a thing.
The reason television, programs, clubs, grants, and scholarships have to market themselves as specifically for people of color is because white people think privilege means rights and doesn’t allow for anyone who isn’t white to have a fucking
chanceidentity/representation/humanity. Anything not labeled as a specific identity is, by default, for white people.
Think we’re against them? We fucking are. When was the last time you saved three girls who had been missing for over a decade and became a laughing stock based on your appearance/vocabulary? When was the last time you had to think twice before you spoke/acted due to the way it would reflect upon your community? Never. That is why you think it’s okay to say ignorant ass shit like this.
Do not ever speak on my behalf again. Do not ever group white people together if you are in that mix. Do not ever claim oppression as a white person again. Do not continue to make poc feel unsafe/disrespected because your fucking privilege dropped half of a percent. Do not ever fucking feel like a white fucking savior to people of color, do not be so fucking far up on that high horse you’re getting nose bleeds while telling poc to stfu and accept the generosity they’ve received so far.
POC have every fucking right to be upset with white people and to fucking hate white people. Who the fuck are you to speak to or diminish their experience?
As a white person, it is my job to educate you. It is my responsibility to inform you of the ways in which you are engaging and perpetuating racism. However, when you’ve already been informed and choose to ignore it, me re-explaining is fucking racist, because it was just as valid and true when it came from a person of color. And it’s really fucking difficult to respect someone who has such a lack of concern for others. And I cannot forgive you for the oppressions you impose on others.
I’m still willing to help you. I’m still willing to explain to you why what you said was wrong. I would not have attacked you, because I’ve been an uninformed white person too and I don’t have to deal with racism in the same with poc do. Every. Single. Day. I have no right to be frustrated/upset with you, but I do have a right and obligation, as a fellow white person, to help you understand your ignorance. But this goes beyond ignorance. This is white privilege being exercised. And I cannot respect you.
When you do realize what you’ve done is incredibly fucked up and want to change the system/end oppression please feel free to reach out to me. Until then, you are not welcome here.
And for the record, I hope one day you can be.
I do not want you to feel badly about yourself. I do not wish bad things for you. I do not think you feeling bad will make this better. I do not want to bully you. This is not about being right. This is about people. This is about everyone feeling safe and equal. You’ve been shielded by your privilege your entire life, and that is not your fault. Refusing to hear the other side, however, is entirely up to you. This is not about making you feel bad; it’s about making no one feel bad.
We are all human and capable of understanding and love. Why can’t we work on bringing that beauty out from within, instead of dissecting what someone else is saying or doing wrong… Lets work on ourselves, “be the change you want to see in the world.”
Unfortunately, we do not live in a post-racial society. Unfortunately, not calling someone on their oppressive behavior means being complicit in oppression. Unfortunately, the world we live in is dominated by white, heterosexual, cisgender men, and, in order to be the change we wish to see in the world, it requires a complete restructuring of ideologies and systems of government. By thinking you can only care about your own behaviors, you are helping no one except yourself.
