If racism is prejudice plus power, a 15 year old kid shouting nigger at an adult black woman isn’t racism because he has no power over her
If they are 100% right about the definition of racism (they aren't), doesn't this mean they don't care about prejudice? Why is prejudice acceptable? Otherwise, why make such a big stink about the true meaning of racism? Why are we okay with ANY of it?
Nope. You can keep trying to redefine racism, Author, but that's not what it means and it's just evidence that you are a regressive cunt.

Racism is prejudice to one race it hast nothing to do with power
So according to you when Obama was POTUS you couldn’t be racist towards blacks.
Racism and prejudice towards a racial group are the same fucking thing, "power" or not. Now we might have a debate later over how some groups feel or face racism more than others, but the plain fact is a member of the "least powerful" racial group is 100% capable of being racist.
So if Barack Obama calls a white person a cracker, he's racist? You don't get more powerful than the former president of the United States, one of the most power and influential countries in the world.
Whenever these idiots try that redefinition gambit, I know they're racist assholes.
If I hold a preconceived opinion against you that is a prejudice. But what type? Racism is just the type of prejudice. Prejudice + Power holds that I am systemically prejudiced which I do not know how prejudice as an individual position directed at another individual can possible make sense.
Is this man whitesplaining me?
Do people just not know what dictionaries are?
There is No reverse racism tho, all racism is racism and equally bad
So by this impeccable logic, I wouldn't be racist if I said "I hate black people", since I'm an Indian and neither my ancestors more I have ever held power over their race
Pencil neck dweeb writing the tweet: nope. Never has been and never will be. No matter how much you want to believe that “racism=prejudice+power,” it will never be the case. It will always be “racism=the belief that one race is superior to another.”
My white privelaged ass loved being born on the floor of a single wide trailer too a crack head mom and drunk absent father
I'm planetkin and I find this offensive.
Her? HER?? Did you just assume the Earth's gender??
People who believe that Mother Nature is a real thing are delusional. Even though we are damaging the earth, life will still continue.
Dude, if the Earth were trying to burn up the humans, it would have set fire to New York City, not the friggin' Amazon which we already destroyed to begin with.
i've just read a similar post on FB, written by a wiccan. these people don't throw their words around for a couple of likes
Meh, honestly? She deserved to die. She was selling child porn for crying out loud. I don't have respect for a horrible human being whether she has a vagina or not. Women Are Wonderful effect doesn't work for me.
I'm waiting for my downvotes just because I hate double standards.
Off topic: I've always hated these eco-boho bitches in our Green Campus meetings back in college. These chicks existed even in the early 80s, but wore a lot more fringe. While we were discussing important things, like getting more people aware of the recycling program. They would suggest having a nude sit-in and openly mourn for our 'dear mother'....ya know, instead of running to the printers to make some fliers to pass out. Anytime we asked them to do something productive, we got hit with metaphysical BS excuses.
They end up doing too much?Too much what?Or are they just saying that men are more active and productive than they are?
It's troubling to see how many of these people can't stand being in the same room as another person without them finding it exhausting, annoying and tiring. I mean, what do they expect when they walk outside? A ghost town?
"Hey #LGBTQ, hold your fucking horses. Your month was June and we're nearly into September.
I'm a member and advocate of the LGBT+ organization (I am trans) and this person is absolutely insane. People like this do not speak for all of us.
When your degeneracy is more important than literally the entire fucking planet.
A NINE year old is talking about relationships? I call bullshit. At that age, I was too busy with my dinosaurs and RC cars to think about that stuff. This is either fabricated or OP is a shit person who likes to expose kids to concepts they're too young for. And this is coming from an LGBT woman here, I really hate how people like this think it's okay to rob a kid's innocence in this way. Let them be a kid, dude. They'll grow up on their own damn time. They shouldn't have to be worrying about sexuality and relationships yet.
Isn't he a bit... young to have a proper sexuality?
And then everybody clapped

I don't think anyone is really thinking they are LYING in a widespread way.
Generally, my doubts are in regards to the logical leap from "this somewhat maybe racially connected thing happened, therefore ALL OF THE SYSTEM IS BUILT AGAISNT BLACK PEOPLE."
And generally, people are REALLY bad ad accurately translating their own experience. Not only do people not remember things even objectively accurately, but our brain is rife with biases that really mess up our ability to interpret it.
For instance, say, you are black, and you've never been told that white people are out to get black people. A white cop pulls you over for going 10 over the speed limit. You know that people regularly go over speed limit and that 10 miles is generally safe, but you got pulled over anyway. Are you likely to come out of this thinking the cop hates your race?
Probably not. By objective fact, you broke the law. It's the cops job to enforce that law, and he likely wasn't looking at the drivers, but at his radar gun if he could have even seen you.
But with only the fact changing that people have told you white peopel are out to get black people, suddenly this appears like a racially charged abuse of power.
I don't think you reporting it as such, under that situation would be LYING, because you believe it. But we would have to really look at the facts to see if that position is factually supported, and certainly critically think in how that could be applied to society at large.
Im good, i watch interracial porn!
The problem is that when you're using subjective experience as a means of finding truth, you could just as easily flip the logic:
"To imply that white folks are mistaken that claims of racial injustice and racial privilege are often exaggerated is itself a kind of racism, because it assumes they cannot be trusted to be accurate translators of their own experience."
Instead of realizing the futility of focusing the discussion on "lived experiences" instead of facts and statistics, many (not all) of the social justice activist crowd have instead just tried to shout down dissenting voices by saying, "When a minority tells you about his/her experience, your job is to shut up and listen."
Sorry, when a political party spoonfeeds their oppression to them, I doubt the credibility of it all.
legitimately anything is racist nowadays, have u not caught on?
You can believe whatever you want. But that doesnt mean someone has to agree
People lie on social media?? Gaaaaaaaasp
Police bodycams are racist
Literal kafka trap.

Whoever wrote that should take their own advice and don't expect any emotional labor from me. Why should I go out of my way to do any of this shit?
I use to support the LGB community et al, but the trans and other alliance garbage they peddle has me at a point of indifference.

If I want to support GNC I'll go buy some whey and another shaker cup
Some of this is good but tbh I think the best way to support trans people is to not treat us like special babies. I get that these people probably mean well but sometimes I just want to shake them and point out that I'm just a normal person, thanks.
Practice...Oh great, homework.
I will never support people who keep this inane push for gender neutrality.
99% of the human race is gendered ... expecting us to ignore that for a tiny minority who are frothing at the mouth is ludicrous.
What is enby and gnc?
Already said it in the past in previous posts but here it is again: "Trying to please everyone is the best way to please nobody."
"It's not my job to educate you, do you research" is something I've heard and read far ,far to often. But when it comes to art of any kind 'good' representation is subjective. So researching it is borderline impossible.
And then, when someone decides to skip out on adding elements that they don't know, they naturally get slammed for not adding those things and denying representation to whatever group feels especially offended (or, as is more likely the case, whatever saviors feel especially offended on that group's behalf).
As always, with the hive mind and the echo chambers: Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
Imagine if they had done something like read the part if the Bible that says "love your neighbour as yourself"
But those Christians are misogynistic so I burned my Bible
This person touched on it but not enough I feel like; No one is required to be inclusive in art they are making. There is no need to include diversity if they don't feel like it.
I don't really agree with this person, if people want inclusion and diversity, then they can make their own art including those things. There is no reason why you have to go to someone else to demand they add things you want in their own artwork.
How hard is it to write an LGBT relationship? It’s like a regular one but they have the same gender
But what if you want to write a story in a fairly homogeneous society... Say Japan?
Perhaps it's a generational thing, but fangirl and fanboi have always been derogatory to me ... because the terms imply a mindless fanaticism which is blind to any reality.
The only time 'fangirl' is negative is when they're rabidly defensive and will harass their idols and significant others. The kpop community is especially bad about this. Liking something is fine, being an obsessive psycho is something entirely different.
But 'fanboy' is still okay to use in the negative?
But like, that word is kinda negative anyway. A lot of girls fit that stereotype of crazy overly obsessive fan. I don't think that should always be the assumption obviously, but it's assumed because a lot of girls are like that.
Um, except for "fanboy" has almost the EXACT same connotations?
... fanboy anyone?
No, it makes it CHILDISH hence the boy and girl part. It’s suggesting that it’s a childish, obsessive and often frivolous obsession that a person has.
I swear, Crayola hair is the new blonde.
As if the connotation of “fanboy” is any different
