And BINGO was his name-O!

Okay, folks...

I had to bust out with it. With apologies to blackperson for her original BINGO board, and thanks to zra for the inspiration, and karnythia and lilithcoyote for their help.


WHITE LIBERAL BINGO



B I N G O
Berates one minority group for bigotry toward another without acknowledging role of white racism. Prefers to be called “a person of European descent.” “People shouldn’t self-segregate.” “If we all just married interracially, racism wouldn’t exist!” "We don’t really have racism here in City/Country/Delusional Little World.”
“Knows” something about POC, because her POC friend told her so. "White people have ethnicities, too!” *pout* Scolds black folk for calling themselves “nigga/h/z.” Dismisses claims of invisible white privilege as conspiracy theories about “The Man.” Thinks growing up among POC/having POC family/a POC maid gives them license to make sweeping statements.
“I don’t really have white privilege (or I understand racism), because I’m gay/poor/disabled/Irish/a woman.” Compares factory farms/eating meat to “the slave trade” and “the Holocaust” or “the Trail of Tears.” PRACTICALLY FREE SPACE!
“I think we should all just be colorblind” or “I don’t see color.”
“The problem with America today is that people don’t take enough personal responsibility for their actions.” Agrees that racism has negative consequences for POC, without having positive consequences for white people.
Claims that not dating POC is purely a matter of physical preference—“I don’t date short/redheaded men, either!” Grows matlocks as "sign of respect/admiration." "POC can’t exactly claim cultural appropriation while using the ‘white man’s’ computer.” Cites Clarence Thomas on matters of race only or Openly agrees with Bill Cosby. Wants a cookie for not owning a white hood.
Says “Talking about racism is so divisive” or Turns every discussion of race into a discussion of class. Brings up race of POC partner or children randomly, in order to prove lack of racism. Believes lack of white scholarships/existence of HBCUs/fact that POC do not like him/her is “kinda racist.” "The Asians or African/Caribbean immigrants have ‘made it’—so black people should be able to.” Awkwardly avoids mentioning race to describe folks, or actively mocks such attempts.


BONUS SQUARE! AUTOMATIC WIN!

"You need to calm down."







And, finally:

Creates "White Liberal BINGO."
