Because of the events of the past few weeks hundred years, I'd like to let white people know that they are all on probation. That goes for the ones floating around here too. I'm just done. I think all the Mexicans floating into their OMGWHITELIVES have made them lose their damn mind. I'd never think a day could come back when a white man could shout at a black man calling him a nigger and people would debate whether this was racist. I didn't think tasering a student for losing his ID would ever come back into fashion.

I'm promoting a new one strike policy. Meaning, you fuck up and I will strike you. I feel Martin Luther King would approve. Hey, if white people can invoke him for their stupidity, then I can draw his face on the palm of my hand before I slap someone.

Forgive me for being naive, ya'll. It won't happen again.

I absolutely agree with you. I'm literally mad that pepole are actually debating if "nigger" is classed as a slur and/or hateful or harmful word. It think it's apparent that people were offended and harmed, or else they'd have displayed their LULZ and moved on.

Reason #473982743289 why I cannot stand white people and coons.

I don't think they're debating. I think the overwhelming consensus has been "Eh, who cares?"

Now, if you make a white girl cry...WHOO BABY!!!

hah, i will NEVER forget this one time at work i made this white bitch i work with cry and all helllllll broke loose. i was called into our "firing" room and my boss gave me this lecture and all i could say was, "are you fucking KIDDING me?"

this was after i'd been called "candace coon" numerous times and people said i was overreacting by filing a complaint with our hr department.

You all have a room for firing? lol

it's a room within our breakroom. usually it's there for meetings with the managers and supervisors, so if a peon like myself gets called in there, uh oh. hah.

but yeah. i filed a formal complaint, but my grandfather told me i shouldn't quit, so i didn't. the naacp got involved and everything. the lady who started the whole thing was removed from my department and was supposedly told she could never have a supervisor job again (she was my supervisor; claimed she didn't know what a coon was) but is magically a supervisor all over again, a year after the incident.

Word. I go to graduate school for African history at a major academic institution. In my African history seminar, we were discussing the notion of appropriation. Some dumb-ass white ho was talking about all of the 'appropriation' of 'white culture' she saw when she was in Kenya (Any cracka who talks about 'study abroad' in Kenya or South Africa? Should get shot.). I was trying to say that considering I can't walk TEN DAMNED FEET without seeing some cracka and a dream catcher or white-person-hair-mats (they think they are locks, but boy, are they mistaken), I don't think that's a topic for discussion.

Then, some dumb-ass heffa chimes in with 'Well, I mean, look at your piercings. Are you trying to represent your tribal culture?'

Seriously, bitch?

I didn't say anything and just stared out the window.

And then she started bawling.

Amazing how they can be racist, start crying, and it becomes your fault.

Nothing gets people moving faster than a crying white woman.

Amen on this!

all of the 'appropriation' of 'white culture'

She didn't understand that that's 'modernization'---and of course whiteness being invisible to her she thinks that they're appropriating. Uh, no. Other countries want to 'westernize'--and all her ideas about Western society are....well, white.

I can't speak for the members of my race
nor would I even try to. Hell I can't stand most of them. I have noticed over the years (I'm up there too) that no matter how much it is suggested or inferred or demanded or written or sang/written about, no matter how many tee shirts, anything... it does not matter.

Try telling some ignorant white fucker that there's just one thing they can't do, hell, just one word they can't use... they can't say it. It's the one thing they're just not allowed to do. It does not matter all the other unthinkable shit they're allowed to get away with on a daily basis for centuries - but tell them they're not allowed to say this one word, and they're all defensive and "but why? everyone else says it?" or whatever lame excuse they can proffer for using the word still when really, they should just shut the fuck up and say "oh, ok. I won't say it again. I'm sorry." All I can think is "now THAT'S privilege when you can go getting all justified and uptight because of one word you can't say ever even though you KNOW IN YOUR FUCKING HEART AND MIND YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS USING ANYWAY."

Just try telling those fuckers they can't have something and watch the fun right?

I'm just sorry this is the topic on my favorite community today. No way to start the weekend.

Re: I can't speak for the members of my race
The fact that someone has to tell them is infuriating and shows their lack of basic respect for black people. I have a friend (who is Italian) who refers to his neighbors (also Italian) as "the g****** who live down the street" and has said that exact phrase in front of me. Y'know what? Nobody had to pull my ass aside and explain to me why it wouldn't be nice if I used that slur. I don't want to use that slur. And even if I did? I have enough respect for other people to be able to censor myself.

Anyone with working vocal cords can say any and all racial/ethnic slurs. These idiots just can't accept the fact that there might be negative consequences to endure after saying them. They want everyone to happily accept them after they've just let the foulest hate speech spill from their lips. And that will never happen. And that's entirely too bad for them.

I think your great-grandmother was right. Don't let these people rent space in your head. I mean you wouldn't expect a blind man to see, would you? Some folks don't get it and you know what, they don't have to. I once worked with a Chinese woman who said, "I don't expect anybody but the people I love to be nice to me, these people here (that we worked with) don't have to be nice to me, why should I get upset if they're not?

I've volunteered to die for all of Whitey's sins in hopes that this could be rectified somehow (because after this weekend, I don't want to be white anymore anyway), but then loomis_simmons reminded me of how well that worked for Jesus Christ. But as soon as I come up with something, I will let you all know.
