    I believe that ALL races are equal. regularlyschedulednegativity and I are pro all races. Everyone deserves the same rights. :)

    Okay, wow.

    Yes, all races deserve the same rights, that’s a given. However, telling black people to “get over slavery” is fucking ridiculous, racist, and not helpful at all.

    First of all, you CANNOT be racist towards white people. Period, end of story. You can be prejudiced, but you cannot be racist. Racism is a social construct of power. White people are systematically advantaged to POC. That is an undeniable fact. Therefore, malice from white people to POC actually has power as opposed to POC being mean to white people. The former causes murder (Mike Brown and hundreds of others) and the latter causes some butthurt white people on tumblr to cry (you, the person you reblogged it from, the person you tagged). 

    This systematic oppression comes from a history of oppression, mainly slavery (which was abolished less than 200 years ago, which is actually not that long ago) and segregation (the civil rights movement was less than 60 years ago, again not that long). Just because somebody made a law doesn’t mean that everyone automatically follows it and that social opinions change overnight. (People still use, create, and sell meth even though it’s illegal!) Crack open a fucking history textbook (even white washed ones will admit to this, btw) and realize that slavery was still going on for quite a while after the US abolished it, it was just under terms such as “servitude” and “debt.” Also, as soon as slavery was abolished, Jim Crow laws were put into place to oppress black people as much as they could without fucking treating them like property.

    The civil rights movement happened because black people wanted to not be treated like shit, a reasonable request. And guess what? Similar to the abolishment of slavery, just because laws were put into place that you couldn’t discriminate against people because of their race doesn’t mean that it didn’t still happen and people got away with it all the time. Has it gotten better since 1960/70? In some ways, sure (although I can’t really say as a white person because I have never and will never experience racism). But racism is alive and well today and quite literally killing and abusing POC. Racism does not affect white people this way  because of what has happened in history; white people are not and cannot be systematically racially disadvantaged! Therefore, any malice from white to POC has real damaging power and the other way around doesn’t!

    It’s opinions and attitudes such as yours that prevent us from being in an equal society. Drawing focus away from the actual racist things that are happening and making it about you just hinders the process of equality and justice. POC have a right to be angry about the current and past racism which both affect their lives today and be mad at white people for continuing to perpetuate it. And you whining about them calling you out on it does not fucking help and your bullshit “hippie equality love each other” attitude just invalidates real, horrifying racist experiences that black people and other POC go through on a daily fucking basis.

    It astounds me that someone who is such an advocate for the compassionate lifestyle of veganism can support such atrocious opinions about humanity issues within their own species. You are a disgrace and an embarrassment to the vegan movement. You should seriously pull your head out of your ass and educate yourself before you run a popular advice blog on a equality/humanitarian lifestyle. Disgusting.

    I actually can’t express how angry this has made me. Talk about disgusting and uneducated. Of course white people can experience racism. It’s opinions like this that stop us moving forward towards equality. I’m sorry, but I can’t explain how pissed off I am at this. Fucking Tumblr logic (or lack there of).

    It’s not ‘tumblr logic’ or ‘opinions’ it’s the facts, it’s accepted social science, and actually it’s what they teach in universities all over the world: 

    The only uneducated person is you. And if you say ‘it’s not reverse racism, it’s just racism’ and don’t actually read the resources I’m graciously providing you with before responding so that you can be educated on this topic, you will be ignored.

    Why is this uneducated person talking about educating others? Tumblr logic at its peak.

    LOL I actually studied these topics at university (and have two degrees in the social sciences, so you really can’t get much more educated than that) and am actually providing you with some of the resources I had to read when I was taking a class on racism, so unless you also want to be ignorant and call the professors and anti-racism experts who wrote these resources as well as the professor who assigned these readings in a racism class at the graduate level as ‘uneducated’ and ‘tumblr logic,’ you need to take a seat and actually read them.

    This picture reminded me of the picture in 1965

    “Hog-spitting – not just spitting,” Tonja Bulley emphatically clarifies.

    “He just hog-spit at my baby. He hog-spit. He took everything out of him and spit in my daughter’s face. She is a minor. That’s the absolute worst thing you can do, when you spit on another human being. She was just saying ‘No justice, no peace’ and he hog-spit (at) and then smacked my baby. At that time — there was no more being peaceful.”

    Bulley and her daughter, Brandy were released from jail last night after being arrested by police outside the St. Louis Rams game the previous day after a violent clash with football fans.

    As the Rams were completing an impressive 28-26 victory over the Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks, Tonja and Brandy were outside the stadium participating in a non-violent protest calling for justice for Mike Brown, and the immediate arrest of his killer, Darren Wilson.

    Tonja, known affectionately to her friends as “Tiny,” continued:

    “We were peacefully protesting. We were saying something that this big, tall White man did not like. He should’ve been locked up, and they did not lock him up. One slapped my daughter and another hit her with his fist. Another woman threw her drink on me – and I retaliated. I’m not coming out to fight, but I have the right to protect myself.”

    Tiny would eventually get punched and knocked to the ground. “I got hit by a couple people. I have a mark behind my ear.” She was initially charged with two felonies for throwing punches after the initial altercation. No violent Rams fans were arrested.

    She says the racial double-standards were apparent: “We had a right to protest without anybody interfering. When the White people protest, there are no problems. Nobody is spitting on them. When we try to do it, the media goes around and acts like we started (the fighting.) We did not start it. I peacefully protest every day in Ferguson, and it’s never a problem.”

    In Ferguson, Tiny and Brandy have been protesting since Brown was killed in August, and have become unofficial members of the Lost Voices—a spirited and well-known group of young leaders who led Sunday’s protest.

    this is disgusting! they get assaulted and then get arrested for retaliating. why isn’t the man spitting at a minor behind bars? i know why, bc the justice system is fucked up and not in favour of poc

    And the media is claiming they attacked the man. He was interviewed, they were not

    When are we gonna stop protesting and screaming for justice? It obviously goes upon deaf ears to white society. When will we start exercising our 2nd ammendment rights and organize like the panthers did in the 60s? I couldn’t imagine a rowdy white rams fan spitting into the barrel of a black woman’s 357. ; it’s time for us to take action because this protesting shit clearly isn’t perpetuating any justice.

  15. "I told Miyazaki I love the “gratuitous motion” in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.

    "We have a word for that in Japanese," he said. "It’s called ma. Emptiness. It’s there intentionally.”

    Is that like the “pillow words” that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?

    "I don’t think it’s like the pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it’s just busyness. But if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb.
