Library collections continue to promote and proliferate whiteness with their very existence
Notice how they say whiteness - not white supremacy, not white nationalism, but whiteness is the problem.
Stop fucking talking about white people like their existence is an issue to be overcome, and maybe - just maybe - the white genocide myth will finally die.
A library journal is complaining about books being in libraries. Because its racist.
Someone kill me, please.
Right so we're just supposed to have computers in libraries now so "minorities" can fuck around instead of having to be in the presence of boring books? That seems to be the unwritten indication here.
And besides, don't these same people go on and on about the famous libraries that got burned or destroyed in several non-white countries centuries ago?

That's just sad, I hope whoever wrote this gets fired and the account proper issues an apology.
Are they trying to put their own industry out of business?
Let me guess, they want to take all the "whiteness" books outside and burn them?
Is this fake? My brain can't even comprehend it. Looking at is too long gives me a headache like I'm staring into a rift into the 6th dimension.
Reading the replies to that tweet gave me hope.
You know how we have stuff like poe's law, and rule 34? We need to come up with something like that, that says anything can be found to be racist if you try hard enough.
It's okay to promote whiteness.
Read the article... Spent way too long trying to figure out what a "white AF conference" was... Is AF an organization? Or is White AF an organization? If so, then why isn't "white" capitalized? Then I remembered it's an initialism for "as f***". I then moved on for context. The answer: It was colloquial racism all along.
At least they're getting ratio'd to Andromeda and back.
The library is the worst group of people ever assembled in history. They're mean, conniving, rude, and extremely well-read, which makes them dangerous.
Parody account. Has to be.
Please say sike.
People speak with different formalities depending on the situation (e.g. casual conversation, English paper, etc) if you don't change the way you speak in some situations you're going to sound stupid or weird.
I ain’t finna nut.
Wow I feel so smart
Just teach them that there's nothing wrong with their dialect, but in business and essays and things, to use standard English. We all have dialects that we speak with, more or less.
I agree. It is a culture of bad grammar and my job as a teacher is to fix it.
Nope. They aren't smart - if they can't tell when it's time for slang and dialect and when it's not ... they are actually quite stupid.
While some students want to be able use their vernacular language in writing, many many more want to be able to write standard written English, especially when English isn't their first language.
Like it or not, standardized English is a language of power across the world and those who can manipulate it are more likely to find success than those who can't.
If you ever say "finna" unironically, you're a fucking moron. No exceptions.
If I attended a school in Germany, I'd not demand the professors learn my brand of English, cultural though it may be.
Lemme simplify this.
PSA: Just praise people for being illiterate
What's wrong with this thread?
There is nothing wrong with using slang and dialect as long as you know how to use the proper language where it matters (job interviews, essays, etc.), which is exactly what the guy on twitter said.
TIL that TiA is turning grammar Nazi, I guess.
The world in question isn't where "grammar no longer exists", it's where there's more than one grammar. Just as distinct languages have different grammars.
If they are still saying it at school then they clearly aren't code switching.
The word ain't was grammatically correct in the 1700s and was widely used by the wealthy (landed gentry). It wasn't until people of lower status started using that it became grammatically incorrect.
Ain't is in the dictionary now, so my old English teacher from grade 6th-8th, Ms. Heights and anyone else who thinks 'ain't' isn't a word can go suck a freaking dictionary.
Well in society, we have a word code, the same way we have a dress code. And what we’re talking about is…basically the speech equivalent… to just wearing underpants. Sometimes words, you no need use…but need need for talk talk.
Shhheeeeiiit they ain't finna get a job
AAVE (African American Vernacular English) is a real, scientifically acknowledged thing and includes slang like ain't and finna. It's regarded as an individual dialect
what are dialects for 100
This I actually somewhat agree with, we shouldn’t be correcting how people speak English because truth be told, there is no “correct way to speak”But the “code-switching” thing is bs
I feel like this would just create a different set of people who are unable to function in the professional world.
How would any of these individuals be able to write a college essay, or an email to a potential client?
Pretty sure people would be equally horrified if this was the Imperial Palace or the Great Pyramid or the Taj Mahal (that one would probably be even more so).
Fuck is a 'nomap?'
While it is a bit disturbing, when in comparison with the other two I'm pretty okay with necrophilia, since unlike pedophilia and bestiality necrophilia can't really hurt anyone. Corpses can't give consent but they also can't be traumatized since they're dead.
Edit: In comparison. Desecrating a corpse is still wrong, but compared to traumatizing kids and abusing animals, it's not as wrong.
If all this person said was, "thoughts aren't illegal" then I'd be fine with it. But they're actually trying to normalize pedophilia, which I'm not fine with.
Your regularly scheduled "replace white with black and thousands will explode" comment.
Ah, diversity and tolerance.
SJWs are the scum of society.
Not too long ago one of these cunts harassed an old Jewish man for having a MAGA hat and called him a nazi, posted his face online and asked others to harass him if they see him in public.
Correct(one part), we don’t have the privilege to life, we have the right to live
She sounds nice.
Oh my god... That's just pure hate. Wtf.
Wait whisper still exists?
I see they fell for the regressive brainwashing
We did it Mrs Obama, we stopped white privilege
This was in response to me saying that cultural appropriation isn’t real.
You earned, Bob?
You earned diddly squat. You sit on your ass and criticize movies.You wouldn't even get to scrub the holodeck in that future you fantasize.
Bob "no bad tactics" Chipman.
What a piss hole.
Please forgive us, Master, for not building your wondrous future society to your exacting specifications.
Bob Chipman is being an insane whiny bitchboy? It must be Tuesday...
I still like some of Bob's videos, but I can't get over how much of a crazy ass idiot he is.
Oh, he earned it? By doing what, I wonder?
Why is it always the biggest losers who imagine themselves as part of the new ruling class in their post-revolutionary utopian society? You’re a white male too, Bob. All the groveling in the world won’t save you from being declared an enemy of the state.
It’s like Eliezer Yudkowsky hatefucked chapo trap house.
Bob's tweets are the reason I stopped watching his videos.
I had to look him up ... then realised it's MovieBob, at which point I laughed my self hoarse.
Has this guy said anything about Musk?
I enjoy Escape to the Movies and The Big Picture but pretty much every other thing I see or hear from him is utter garbage
He’s also too stupid to realize that uploading your consciousness to another body would effectively just have made a copy of you.
When I say racism I mean systematic institutionalized racism you ignorant dumbass. Just like when I say dog I only mean great danes and when I say USA I only mean NYC, get it right weak ass bitch
My response to this bs is always the same. "Fine, then you're a bigot. Does that not sit well? A prejudiced asshole then."
Prejudice is still prejudice, even if you're in denial about racism. You still are judging a person based on their skin color.
And bold of you to assume that other races don't go over similar shit.
muthafuckin bitechs up in this bitch
What a racist.
Why are they so mean to white peoples?
Depends on the country surely? There's not always the same system of oppression in the whole world.
Only black people have experienced systemic racism? lol k.
Puts a whole new perspective on nemo?
Tumblr is a bunch of clownfish.
the hyena one is so fucking disturbing i think i actually had a small panic attack reading it
holy fuck where has that hyena gender identity been my entire life
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
As cringey as the wording is, this is actually an interesting way to describe people who exhibit traits not usually associated with their gender. A guy likes wearing makeup and fancy dresses? He's still a guy, he's just a peacock.
Seahorse gender = non blacks
Can anyone explain the reasoning behind the Hyena one to me?Why do female Hyenas take pride in their massive cocks?Is it some obscure reference to a deleted scene from Lion King 1 1/2 ?
Just call yourself a furry...
The first three are personality traits, not genders
So, basically all these genders are just "male or female but with certain specific personality traits" aka "I'm average and boring so I have to come up with a BS label to make me sound more interesting."
complains about whitewashing using Latinx when only 'woke' white people say it
complains about whitewashing
using Latinx when only 'woke' white people say it
And then everyone clapped...
More seriously, he got fired because he's a shithead towards his coworkers
I suppose I would have assumed they didn't, I assume pretty much EVERYONE speaks one language, learning a second language is hard. I would find it more racist to assume they spoke Spanish.
Wow isnt it crazy how the most racist white folks are the ones who chide others about racism... its almost like closet homosexuals and homophobia
The left eats itself
No one automatically thinks someone speaks more than their native language, it has nothing to do with colonialism. I think your acquaintance is missing a few screws
Why they don't just publish my damn book?
What do they mean it's -ist? Everyone knows you can't be -ist again straight white males! Don't they have Tumblr?
Just self-publish it on Amazon or something. They'll take literally anything as long as it's formatted properly.
Assuming people who think like this actually read
Finally some justice for all the people every day oppressed under the banner of adolf trump and his forth reich enabled red-hats.
If we can come together and make women realize white straight men dont deserve relationships cause they will naturally just abuse women then we can finally start slowly breeding out white people until their number is small enough for us to control inside forced labour camps.
What was neil gaiman's response?
Didn't Gaiman release a short story collection entitled "Trigger Warning" fairly recently? What would make someone think that's the guy they ought to be asking about toxic masculinity?
Hey, buddy, I don't know you, but I'm glad you beat cancer!
Why don't they just self publish it? I mean, I doubt many would read it because it sounds annoying as fuck and like it would be a chore to read, not to mention offensive(also...does this person realize more than white males are in hetero relationships?).
I hope publishers read that so they know to never publish that book
