Is it just me?

So the word is out that I am 'racist toward white people'.
this was, incidentally, due to my complaint that only white folk say the ol' "____ is just like racism!" comment, and that only RACISM is like racism.

Done rolling your eyes?
Then tell me. Have you ever been accused of this, or is it just me?

get it on the daily.

white guy i work with has a black girlfriend, also a woman i work with. he INSISTS on calling the woman darkness, and though she and i have no relationship, i'm sorry, no white man is going to refer to a black person in my presense as "darkness." he thinks i'm being hypersensitive by telling him i don't want to hear it because she's okay with it, but we're two different people. if she gets off on that, fine, but i don't think it's appropriate. he also takes pictures of her and laughs because she is barely visible in the bad lightening. "i told her if she'd have just opened her mouth a little and her eyes wider, we'd have had a good picture." ha ha ha? so yeah. because i'm vocal about that problem, i'm racist against white people.

I had something similar like that in elementary school where all the white kids thought it was cool to call black kids oreo. Not because of the original meaning but because black people have white on the bottom of their hands which makes them like oreos. But, that ended pretty quickly when i started kicking white boys in the nuts when they said that shit around me.


Memories like that make me wish I could go back to elementary school.

I just went to a weekend long communist convention that was mostly wealthy college educated white kids whining about how oppressed they are by the government. On the second day one of the wealthy white kids who is from Arizona (just like me) and had never been to New York City before (just like me) asked me if I knew where to get weed. Naturally, I told him to go fuck himself. Later I discussed the event with other people at the convention and apparently my assumption that he was racist for assuming all black people 1) smoke weed and 2) have magical negro connections all over the world so they never run out of weed was racist because not all white people are racist.

That was just the most recent time I was accused of being racist against white people. But, I seriously do hate them. Alot.

Yeah, I've been told that a lot. Not as much since my predominately white college days, but I still get that every now and then.

I think it's the only kind of "equality" that most white people can believe in.

Whenever I enter a discussion about race, I don't finish without being called racist against white people. I take it as a sign that I'm on the right track.

Yup, got it on my lj for daring to make a post about being sick of stupid white people, and saying there was a certain kind of stupid that in general only white people had (and that it sprang from culture blah blah blah), and had someone call me racist. Which got "...whatev" from me.

I just got called racist for pointing out that the New Black Panthers are denounced by the past ones and that it's pretty damn stupid to say that black people are more racist because "white people are nicer about it."

I'm going to smother a whole lotta teenagers in gravy and drown them.

My best friend in middle school [who's black] was called a rasict when she wouldn't let a white girl play double dutch with us. But the game was full and that chick could not jump any damned way.

So yeah, to recap: folks are dumb.

Well, I think the most recent time was someone in fandom_wank over at journalfen called me a "black supremist" I STILL lmao @ that one. It was fairly out of context just some ol' "oh well, she's a black supremist anyway so..." And btw, if anyone can tell me what a "supremist" is, black or otherwise, I'll give you a dollar.

But the only time offline anyone has ever refered to me (or rather to what I said) as racist was when I guy I liked from summer camp said I shouldn't call him a white boy because that was racist. =/ Um, newsflash, Skippy, you're white and a boy. Wtf should I call you? A black girl?

i've been called racist, but more i've been called sexist due tot he fact that i feel that women shouldn't get more rights and privilages than men if we're trying to work towards equality. women get REALLY pissed if you even suggest that all female schools shouldn't exist, or if they should, then there should be all male schools again.

I get it a lot. And there are a lot of white people I don't like. For example, hyperprivileged, overindulged white bitches who have nothing better to do than whine about LJ Breastfeeding Icons and then have the audacity to compare themselves to Rosa Parks. Also, old white men. They creep me out and/or piss me off.

Oddly, I was accused of being a racist for not including organizations of POC who are racist when it would have been completely beside the point I was making which was that white racisim is turned a blind eye to while the racism of POC is treated as a more serious problem. She then proceeded to prove my point and then started lecturing me about black people and how ghetto blacks have more problems with racism than those who've esceped from it.

It's funny how the most racist people are so busy pointing out the preceived racism of others that they completely miss it when it comes out of their own mouth.

When stuff like this stops happening to me, THEN they can talk to me about it.

Definitly had it implied. I think it was when I was complaining about my fomerly all-black area not being quite so all-black when I visited home(SW ATL). White folks were like "Shouldn't you be happy white people are moving in? I thought black people liked integration"

I get accused of racism whenever I point out racism or privilege.

Water off a duck's back, usually.

People who know me know that I am definitely not racist against white people. Shit, I was in a Dutch South African's wedding a few weeks ago, for fuck's sake.

It just occured to me.
You know...

My white a$$ gets this all the time. Furthermore, stating that racism is systemic gets me a whole bunch of cr@p about how self-hating I must be.

The error stems from the idea that anyone of any race can be the victim of racism. Which, no.
