White people already have true #diversity. 

Lmao this is hilarious cus blue and green eyes are highly recessive genes while brown eyes are dominant so like ur genetic diversity off of a phenotype that was probably spawned from inbreeding doesn’t seem like a great idea but I doubt white supremacists are bothered by that seeing how it’s probably how they themselves born lol.

some white people have been REACHING lately.

Lol I’m cackling

Lmao like what

White people never cease to amaze me.

This is funny cuz…..

This is my pops

Whiteness in the gay community is everywhere, from what we see, what we experience, and more importantly, what we desire. The power of whiteness, of course, derives from appearing to be nothing in particular (Lipsitz, 1998). That is, whiteness is powerful precisely because it is everywhere but nowhere in particular. When we see whiteness, we process it as if it doesn’t exist or that its existence is simply natural. We don’t see it precisely because we see it constantly. It blends into the background and then becomes erased from scrutiny. And this whiteness is imposed from both outside and inside of the gay community.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.

I understand that it is good to include different ethnicities in writing but is it really that big a deal especially if the colour of a characters skin isnt essential to the plot? Couldnt you leave skin colour out of it completely and let the reader decided the ethnicity of the main character? Also would it still be so bad if all the characters were white but came from different cultural backgrounds like russian, irish, french etc. you are still being diverse without bringing skin colour into it

thewritingcafe:

When a character’s skin color is not described in Western literature, readers automatically assume this character is white. Even when characters are described as having dark skin, some readers, for whatever reason, see them as white and get upset when visual depictions defy what they want to see.

By saying that a character’s skin color needs to be essential to the plot to be described, you are saying that only white characters are worthy of having stories that don’t have anything to do with racism, racial identity, and other issues related to race and colorism. It’s not that hard to say your character isn’t white. Their ethnic and/or racial background does not need to tie into the plot for them to exist.

Including different ethnicities (within one race) is diversity, but it is ethnic diversity. It’s not racial diversity. They are two different things.

Unarmed black man, Ezell Ford, killed by LAPD 
August 13, 2014

On the heels of the Mike Brown tragedy, another Black man has been shot and killed by the police. The 24-year-old man succumbed to gun injuries after an encounter with police in South LA.

The incident happened Monday evening, shortly after a shooting was reported at the intersection of West 65th Street and South Broadway. The LAPD stopped a man 200 blocks north of the 65th block when things took a dangerous turn. According to a police statement, officers opened fire after “a struggle ensued.”

The man, who was later identified as Ezell Ford, was then transported to the nearest hospital where he underwent surgery but later died. Ford is one of countless victims who have recently died at the hands of police- who are to protect and serve the community.

Was Ford killed for simply being a young, African-American male – the very same characteristics that claimed the lives of John Crawford and Mike Brown?

The mother of the victim, Tritobia Ford,  said her son was lying on the ground and obeying the officers’ commands when he was shot. Multiple reports indicate he was unarmed.

Further details on the shooting is underway and will be investigated by LAPD’s Force Investigation Division. The LAPD is currently being sued by Marlene Pinnock, a homeless woman whose vicious beating at the hands of a still unidentified officer was caught on tape. Her lawsuit alleges excessive force, assault, battery.

Source

The surrounding south LA community has organized a protest to demand justice for Ezell on Sunday, August 17 at the LAPD headquarters at 3 p.m.

Rest in power, Ezell. No justice, no peace!

Burgeoning on genocide, this is an epidemic.

The most fucked up thing about racism is this. When you talk about it with white people, they always make the discussion about their feelings. About how they personally aren’t racist. All of these atrocities are happening to my people and the first thing you think about is YOU? And you expect me to believe you aren’t racist?

Actor Danny Glover told the press during a stay in Paris for a seminar on film. “I couldn’t get the money here, I couldn’t get the money in Britain. I went to everybody. You wouldn’t believe the number of producers based in Europe, and in the States, that I went to,” he said. Glover’s first project as film director, is about Toussaint L’ouverture and the Haitian rebellion. The government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez approved nearly $30 million toward the movie. Don Cheadle, Mos Def, Wesley Snipes and Angela Bassett all agreed to do the film…if it can ever be made………………….

White Until Proven Minority

By Lauren Anthony

It’s nothing new that western society tends to default everyone to white until proven otherwise. This is most common in books and radio shows where there isn’t a visual representation of the character in front of the audience. If a character isn’t explicitly stated as being a person of color, most people just assume the character is white. Things can get complicated when the actor portraying the character is a person of color but passes for white or if a character was incorrectly read by many people as white.

Yes, in fact. You created a blog ostensibly meant to allow people to discuss ideas. Seems like you only care about your own.

thisiswhiteprivilege:

This blog wasn’t created for people to discuss ideas.

Lmao white people think all blogs made by PoC to commiserate our collective oppression at the hands of white supremacy were made for “discussion”, or rather “I’m going to unload my stupid unsolicited opinions about how wrong you are all over your blog.” Pathetic.
