Effects Of Thinking White People Are “All Like That”:

  • Literally nothing other than white people having their feelings hurt on the internet
  • I’m not joking there is no real world consequence of this

Effects Of Thinking People of Color Are “All Like That”:

But yeah, white people’s feelings :*(

I actually changed my mind, I’m adding more

Whoa, it does not stop

Imagine how tragic it would be if someone hurt your feelings by letting you know that you benefit from not having this happen to you, though

!!!

to everyone still using the dictionary definition of racism to rationalize the existence of what they call “reverse racism”

the following are all quotes from sociologists, civil rights activists, and government committees devoted to race relations in the united states

PREJUDICE

“Unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand without knowledge, thought or reason.”
— from RANDOM HOUSE DICTIONARY, 1967 

RACISM

“Any attitude, action or institutional structure which subordinates a person or group because of their color … Racism is not just a matter of attitudes; actions and institutional structures can also be a form of racism.”
—from RACISM IN AMERICA AND HOW TO COMBAT IT, U.S. commission on Civil Rights, 1970 

AND


“Racism is different from racial prejudice, hatred, or discrimination. Racism involves having the power to carry out systematic discriminatory practices through the major institutions of our society.”
— from WHAT CURRICULUM LEADERS CAN DO ABOUT RACISM by Dr. Delmo Della-Dora, New Detroit, Inc. 1970 

WHITE RACISM

“Power + Prejudice = Racism.”
—from DEVELOPING NEW PERSPECTIVES ON RACE, by Pat A. Bidol

“In the United States at present, only whites can be racists, since whites dominate and control the institutions that create and enforce American cultural norms and values … blacks and other Third World peoples do not have access to the power to enforce any prejudices they may have, so they cannot, by definition, be racists.”
—from EDUCATION & RACISM, National Education Association. 1973 

“Racism and white racism mean the same thing, if we are referring to practices of major institutions and dominant societal patterns in the United States today … White people are in the majority in the country … Thus, government, business, industry, unions, churches, educational and other institutions are almost always dominated by white people. When you combine power with racial discrimination, the result is racism.”

RACIST SOCIETY

“Is one in which social policies, procedures, decisions, habits and acts do in fact subjugate a race of people and permit another race to maintain control over them … No society will distribute social benefits in a perfectly equitable way. But no society need use race as a criterion to determine who will be rewarded and who punished. Any nation which permits race to affect those who benefit from social policies is racist.”
—from INSTITUTIONAL RACISM IN AMERICA

WHO IS A RACIST?

“All white individuals in our society are racists. Even if a white is totally free from all conscious racial prejudices, he remains a racist, for he receives benefits distributed by a white racist society through its institutions. Our institutional and cultural processes are so arranged as to automatically benefit whites, just because they are white.

It is essential for whites to recognized that they receive most of these racist benefits automatically, unconsciously, unintentionally.”
—from EDUCATION & RACISM, National Education Association. 1973

if, after reading these entries, written by qualified researchers, scientists, and committees, you still see a dictionary definition of such a controversial word as more fitting than the definition provided by those who study and research the topic, you need to seriously re-examine your reasoning.

are you sticking to the definition because it’s convenient for you? do you believe these people to be unqualified to speak on the topic? do you really want to be the victim THAT badly?

no one is saying that minorities cannot be prejudiced towards whites. no one is saying that unnecessary violence against whites is a good thing. but at the same time, you need to acknowledge that we live in a society that objectively provides whites more opportunity than minorities, even those in less-than-fortunate socioeconomic circumstances. this is the truth of our culture. why are you denying it? are you so afraid to be labelled a racist that you refuse to acknowledge these destructive power structures?
