the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bag despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life
As many as 15 percent of freshmen at America’s top schools are white students who failed to meet their university’s minimum standards for admission, according to Peter Schmidt, deputy editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education. These kids are “people with a long-standing relationship with the university,” or in other words, the children of faculty, wealthy alumni and politicians.
According to Schmidt, these unqualified but privileged kids are nearly twice as common on top campuses as Black and Latino students who had benefited from affirmative action.
“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
and this is what the western news don´t show. Educated and Covered Muslim women are unimaginable for them.
Mexicans are almost unanimous for their disdain of Central Americans. Yet here I am, being beautiful and a threat to Mexican machismo dads everywhere.
Oh nope, not a slur at all, just a method of making the term gender neutral. In fact, there isn’t anything wrong with using Latina/Latino to describe yourself if you have a binary gender and/or are referring to a group of binary gendered people.
Latin@ refers to the group of people unified by their colonization by Spain.
wouldn’t it be easier to use the term ‘hispanic’?
I strongly dislike the term Hispanic. This was not a term invented by Latin@s, it was placed upon us. On top of that, it includes Spanish people, our colonizers. It unifies a group of people that speak Spanish.
My grandparents grew up in California in the 60s, and learning Spanish was highly discouraged, ergo my parents and I do not speak Spanish either. This is the case for many Latin@s, and that fact causes us to be excluded from our own communities, and I hate that the term focuses on the linguistic link that has been broken for many of us.
this is why I hate white people
Kill it with fire
-_______- If I was white I’d complain that black people have ONE FUCKING MONTH. ONE FUCKING PRESIDENT AND ONE FUCKING CHANNEL. While everything else is mine.
if i were white i’d be able to live life in mediocrity and still complain about how hard it is having oppressed people hate me
This whole thing pisses me the fuck off. If white people had white history month it would be racism. If white people had all white frats and sororities like the blacks do at my college it would be racism. If we had a white entertainment channel it would be racism. But this is all accepted by blacks because why? Please explain that to me. Black people can walk around calling white people crackers or “white girl” and it’s not big deal but if I was to say “black guy” it would be a big issues. Stop playing the victim. If you want equal fucking rights, don’t use your race as a goddamn crutch when something doesn’t go your way.
Finally someone said it.
Does @everythingsanillusi0n even live on this planet? What’s this ‘if’ shit? White history month? All year. Why are we taught about Europeans from 800 years ago, but not, say Colombians from 300 years ago, Koreans from 100 years ago, or Indians from forever? Or rather, why is the only mention of other countries in our history books is when white men “discover” people living there, enslave and murder them, then instill their backward laws on them? That’s white history 365 a year.
And you know, it’s not like being taught white history stops in Feb. No, the only difference is that you’re ALSO being taught the thinnest of the bare minimum about people who built this country, who invented a lot of the conveniences you used today, who took to the street to make laws just. And you think you have the right to whine about? You want to call that racism? Does your bigotry really make you that stupid?
Why are there black Greek houses? Has your pea-brain ever considered the historical and CURRENT situation of white Greek organizations banning, explicitly and implicitly any person of color? Like, do you really think that black universities which were started because WHITE PEOPLE DID NOT WANT BLACK PEOPLE AT THEIR SCHOOLS were just going to wait to have a Greek House when a white person showed up? Are you new? Are you real?
What non-existent problem did you make up in your head for saying ‘black guy’? You think ‘white girl’ is racism? You think [adjective][noun] is racism? Your poor, delicate feelings. Have you ever had a white girl call you a “Stupid nigger bitch.” for walking down the street, for asking for help, for being at the park with your kids? Have you ever had a white girl come up to assuming your’re the maid, when you’re leaving your mother-in-law’s place or that you’re the nanny when you’re playing with your kids? Have you ever had a white girl ignore you at a shop then fawn over other white girls when they come in? Guess what? THAT’S RACISM? Being called a ‘white girl’ is not racism.
The benchmark for white bigotry is this, “If we had a white entertainment channel it would be racism.” This marks you as a racist, bigot, myopic, stupid and lazy. You know, the stereotype of the white American. Because no one with brain, no one who can actually think for themselves, no one who has actually seen TV would say that Fox New, the CW, the Hallmark Channel or any of the other 600 available channels which show 99.999999% white people is the same or less than BET. That one channel, most black people I know don’t even watch.
So, you can be as pissed as you want to be, but you really just hung your ass out there repeating stuff that made no sense to anyone except other racist.
