"I don’t see how this is racist."
Let me make one thing very, very clear.
You don’t know what racism is.
You don’t know what racism is even if some Japanese chap told you not to appropriate their culture HOW CAN THEY UNDERSTAND DIVERSITY, or a Kenyan stared at you at one time on the train HOW RUDE, or a Hispanic called you A Certain Name ZOMG THEY’RE RACIST!!
Face it, you would know what racism was even if it danced naked in front of you singing God Save The Queen, then beat you up and stole your wallet.
We, on the other hand, we face it every day. We get beaten up, shamed, laughed at, microaggressed at, appropriated from, re-colonised &c for the simple reason that we are not you.
Everyone else goes to experts for information on things. so don’t you think racism should be our specialty, for us to define, seeing as we deal with it in all its insidious forms every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every year of our lives? Telling us you know what racism is? That’s like walking into a physics professor’s office and saying rocket science is F=mg.
The next time this happens I’m just going to ask fail!people if they are high or something. It’s almost funny.
