white people ARE inherently racist the same way y’all think that black people ARE inherently thieves and Latinos ARE inherently drug dealers and Asians ARE inherently intelligent
tell me that you’re “sorry for being white” is also giving me permission to punch you in the face
seen at afropunk2k14The desperate white girl who results to racism to fit in with the Black people
She is the type of white girl that says things like
" I went to afropunk and everyone there was so nice."
" They liked what i wore."
" What do you mean cultural appropriation? I come every year and no one bothers me."
backwashed-barrel and I saw her getting her photograph taken and could not believe it. The photographer was white, too. A white photographer at a Black music festival photographing a white woman appropriating other cultures. Yes.
Exploiting black culture and appropriating it at the same damn time.
M.I.A. shitting on ignorant opinions
Racism and ignorance clearly evident in our society, as experienced by my friend’s sister. This is what her potential dorm roommate, whom she had never met or talked to before, tweeted about her.
"Today I googled my last name and found this as one of the search results. Apparently, just by looking at my profile picture, I am Indian and I can barely speak english. This, my friends, is a prime example of racial profiling. I am an American citizen. I was born in Houston, Texas. My roots are not from India but from Africa. My parents are Algerian. I am Algerian American. English is my primary language and it is a struggle for me to speak my parent’s native tongue. My name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I wear a hijab (a head covering), and not a niqab ( a facial covering that excludes the eyes) though I do admire, respect, and find the beauty in all those who do choose to wear the niqab. But this girl is right, I probably would have had a heart attack living with a person who could not, and refused to, respect me and my beliefs. I can only thank God for an opening of a single room shortly after they assigned this roommate, way before I knew she had posted any of this. Alhamdullilah. I also thank God for being born in Houston, one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, and not experiencing racism like this everyday of my life.
Sunday is my move in day and the start of my college career. This can be nothing but a good sign for the years to come, inshaAllah.
In conclusion, I urge everyone, please, don’t judge a person by their appearances. Racism exists in this nation because we continue to do so. We have to look beyond the covers of appearances and read the texts of their characters. Stand with me and #stopracism.”
She should be banned from life
this is so fucked up
After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”
