I swear, if one more person says to me ‘racism should be laughed at. You only give racism power if you take it seriously instead of like a joke. You’re part of the problem for taking it seriously’ I’m going to kill someone.
No, just stupid cunt, racism is serious and all this bullshit of ‘it’s only powerful if you give it power’ is bullshit.
Ignoring racism won’t mean Black American teenagers stop getting shot by white police and the neighbourhood watch.
Ignoring racism won’t mean that muslims are no longer the target of horrific attacks.
Ignoring racism won’t mean that suddenly the black man’s dollar will finally be the same as the white man’s dollar.
Ignoring racism won’t mean suddenly every racist ever decides that what they’re doing is wrong.
Ignoring them encourages them. It means no one is calling them out and telling them they’re wrong, so they think they’re right.
So don’t come at me with ‘you’re the real problem here’ when I call you out about your brown-facing bitch ass, or your lax attitude towards racism.
Because I will find a way to cut you through the computer screen.
I will find a way.
