    i literally hate when people always try to dismiss race and act like it “isn’t a problem anymore”

    i’m mixed. my dad is a 6’3 black male, my mom is white w/ blonde hair and blue eyes.

    you and your family have never been randomly pulled over by cops on several occasions just so they could ask your mom if she’s “okay” 

    there’s still a fucking problem

    interracial relationships dont end racism, point blank.

    you a bitch

    It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

    So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

    What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

    In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

    I don’t understand how all Muslims are called terrorists because of what one group of 19 extremist men did 13 years ago.

    But white people aren’t called terrorists when they invaded their countries, killed millions of civilians, when they shoot up schools, shoot up movie theaters, and kill random POC. Isn’t that something.

  10. "

    Privacy is a privilege. It is rarely enjoyed by women or transgender men and women, queer people or people of color. When you are an Other, you are always in danger of having your body or some other intimate part of yourself exposed in one way or another. A stranger reaches out and touches a pregnant woman’s belly. A man walking down the street offers an opinion on a woman’s appearance or implores her to smile. A group of teenagers driving by as a person of color walks on a sidewalk shout racial slurs, interrupting their quiet.

    For most people, privacy is little more than an illusion, one we create so we can feel less vulnerable as we move through the world, so we can believe some parts of ourselves are sacred and free from uninvited scrutiny. The further away you are from living as a white, heterosexual, middle-class man, the less privacy you enjoy – the more likely your illusions of privacy will be shattered when you least expect it.

    sorry white people but if you dont support mike brown & the people of fergusons’ protests in 2014 you probably wouldnt have supported abolition in the 1800s or civil rights movements in the 1960s & having the ability to recognize something as morally justified in hindsight something that has already been accepted by the mainstream as morally justified is nice for u but on all practical levels useless to everyone else

    Cultural Appropriation is taking a…

    I gave you an actual quote from an academic source on someone who is arguably an expert on the intersection of law and anthropology that said EXACTLY what cultural appropriation is and you ignored it and think your opinion is more valid. 

    Let’s look at another source that supports the first:

    "Cultural Appropriation - refers to the process by which members of relatively privileged groups "raid" the culture of less powerful or marginalized groups, and removing [sic] cultural practices or artifacts from historically or culturally specific contexts." - From the Glossary of the Municipal Cultural Planning Project (Canada)

    OH LOOK another one:

    "cultural appropriation … ‘the taking - from a culture that is not one’s own - of intellectual property, cultural expressions or artifacts, history and ways of knowing’ …" - Borrowed Power: Essays on Cultural Appropriation (p.s. ANOTHER academic source)

    "[C]ultural appropriation — that is, those practices involving the non-consensual apprehension and/or misuse of cultural knowledge outside of its local and traditional contexts." - The Ethics of Cultural Appropriation (ANOTHER academic source)

    AND You have literally no sources or ANYTHING to support what you’re claiming.

    Clearly the only person using ‘fallacies’ here is you. You just look silly now.

    Yes but you’re misinterpreting it. Eating Chinese is not the fucking same as wearing a war bonnet. If you think it is you need to take a good long look at yourself.

    When the fuck did I say that desecrating the warbonnet is the same as eating Chinese food???? When the fuck did I mention either of those things???????? Seriously, how do you go from “your definition of cultural appropriation is incorrect” to “YOU THINK EATING CHINESE FOOD AND WEARING A WARBONNET IS THE SAME.” Wtf is wrong with you?

    And no one has said that eating food from other cultures has ever been appropriation anyway so again, you are making yourself look very very silly. 

    The whole argument was about tumblr brand cultural appropriation, tumblr does do this and DON’T SAY IT’s JUST TROLLS! These people will fucking bitch about how you eat Chinese food while saying nothing about actual appropriation. Don’t think just because you haven’t seen it that it doesn’t happen. That’s why I made the post.

    'Tumblr brand' DOES NOT EXIST. IT IS MADE UP. The only people on tumblr misrepresenting cultural appropriation is assholes like you. 

    And again, I’ve follow the cultural appropriation tag for YEARS now and the only people saying “omg I can’t eat chinese food it’s cultural appropriation” are EXAGGERATING antisjw ASSHOLES, not anti-racism activists and people of color. 

    PROVIDE PROOF and/or EVIDENCE (like I have over FIVE TIMES now) to support your claims or shut up.
