Thank God We Solved Racism…
This epitomizes why the politics of respectability is so pointless and a ridiculous way to solve racism.
O’Reiley himself claims that if black men dress right, stay in school, and etc that they will be treated with respect. And yet, he blatantly disrespects a Columbia Professor dressed in a suit by reducing him to a cocaine dealer. This is how white people work. They give conditions for you to be treated with humanity, but even when you meet those arbitrary conditions you’re still treated as less than human.
And black people need to become wiser to these tactics. Because then Don Lemon wouldn’t have made the silly statements he made.
Bill O’Reily strikes me as some kind of sick joke
"This is how white people work" You’re inferring that all white people act the same way is racist as well. I would have agreed with you fully if you had not said that one little phrase. Now all I can see is that YOU are racist towards white people. Which would put you in the same boat as Bill O’Reiley.
Reverseracism is a myth. Racism is institutional. ALL white people benefit from racism. Most of you participate in subtle racism and if you don’t, you still benefit from racism. Most of you are ignorant to the fact that the world is not a ‘post racial’ society. Most of you are either : active bigots, timid bigots, fair weather bigots.
Active Bigot – “All-weather bigot" – Example: Openly racist and makes racial remarks regardless of audience.
Timid Bigot – prejudice but afraid of the consequences of discrimination.
Fair-weather Liberal (Reluctant Liberal) – Discriminates without having personal prejudice. Will not call out another person for being racist, will usually laugh at racist jokes/actions. These people almost always think they are not “racist”.
Here’s a little bit of raw self love for you..
OH MY GOD! So I was in the target with my little sister and came across this. I honestly dont even know what to say.
The attack on white women in America must be stopped. Everyday we are made to feel as though we are less than, ugly and should hate ourselves. We are encouraged to get collengin impants in our lips, breast implants and butt injections to to have black features.
Today my little sister even told me, “Ashley, I want to be a black girl.” Do you know how that made me feel?!?!?!?!?!? I felt like I failed her.
The media wants white women to be ashamed of themselves. And it is time to stop that. Everywhere I turn, i see black women stealing white men, like thieves in the night. I dont mean to be racist but honestly sometimes I wish we could go back to segregation.
I went on twitter to see what others were thinking and I even realized that most people saying she was ugly were INDEED black men! How am I to believe black women are beautiful if their own men dont.
Im so upset, my little sister asked my dad if she could go tanning the other day and he just walked out of the room. What is America coming too? Why is the assault on my face, body, lips, eyes and skin so harsh?
If you ask me, most beautiful should have went to either Jennifer Lawrence or Anna Kendrick, not because their white but because physically they are stunning.
This…this is satire, right? Please tell me it’s satire.
Even if it is satire, of course, it’s still got a strain of racism to it. But please don’t tell me this person actually thinks like this.
I honestly can’t tell any more, and the rest of their blog is the same.
I really like how she tries to defend herself by stating how much she loooveees Japanese culture
"You guys I did this with Japanese people it’s cool"
"I go to Japan like so much ok I know the culture"
"I know so many Japanese people and even the director was Japanese!"
God these bullshit statements alone just insinuates that hey Japanese people are working with me so I can’t be doing anything wrong or racist, otherwise they’d tell me!
Yeah because even if you’re an artist at the end of her career and desperately trying to save it, you’re still a well-known name and PoC don’t have many opportunities in this industry and will take any job that’s offered to them. This includes everyone who worked on this video. Why?
Because People of Color are easily replaced. They’re expendable.
Oh, you don’t want to work with her cause her entire music video is racist? Whatever. We’ll just find another director/choreographer/dancer.
That’s it. That’s literally it. That’s how it works. So we suck it up and work with these people cause the industry doesn’t value us enough and not working only harms us, not the artist.
I mean, spewing random Japanese words that have nothing to do with your song is just short of saying Ching Chong Long Ting Tong, but you know. She’s just admiring the culture.
Sure does remind me of this skit:
This is extremely racist and insulting. I’m an Asian American. I studied Japanese for two years. I’ve yet to begin to scratch the surface of Japanese culture and etiquette and I’m not even that confident or comfortable speaking or writing it because I don’t feel as if I know enough about it to say I can speak Japanese.
Singing random words in a language you don’t know is racist when you use it for the sake of a song that just appropriates a part of their culture so much.
Then you have your Japanese backup dancers. They all look the same, they’re silent, and “kawaii”.
Of course, to you dear Avril, this sure doesn’t perpetuate the stereotype of cute, obedient, and submissive Asian
womengirls right? They’re just too damn cute and fit your set!
God. You’re turning 30. I don’t care if you want to act childish or dress a certain way. But grow the fuck up and stop making arguments that defend your racist actions and try to justify them by name-dropping everything Japanese.
You’re not Japanese. You don’t know Japanese. You don’t know Japanese culture. Your song doesn’t “honor” or “flatter” Japanese people or Japanese culture. It perpetuates the stereotype the West already holds and you try to pass it off as being cute and creative and appreciative and dedicate it to your Japanese fans.
No. Fuck you.
"hey you know what’d be a great movie? a godzilla remake with literally no people of asian descent. none. all white people. yeah that’ll go well"
Is Ken Watanabe like the Silence from Dr. Who? When you’re not looking at him you forget he exists?
Personally, I’d start referring folks to the Japanese trailer for the film, which makes Ken Watanabe’s character, Dr. Serizawa, out to be the film’s hero.
Of course, while his role has been downplayed in the American trailers, I find it odd that anyone could miss him. After all, he got the most badass lines in the main trailer that also most firmly established the stakes of the film:
"In 1954, we awakened something. [In reference to the nuclear tests] They were trying to kill it." … "The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control, and not the other way around."
Plus, the Wondercon footage alone established that the film is not the “99% white people” of the prior American version. I won’t argue it’s not still rather whitewashed, and Watanabe could easily be written off as tokenism, but even so it’s hardly the all-white Akira remake Hollywood has been threatening us with.
i found my clips on a site called ape tube. ape fucking tube! it’s a black and interracial tube site. im so sad to see myself on such a racist named site.
That is so fucked up I don’t even know how to process it.
