White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.
if she’s in Nashville it really can only mean one thing
I mean I’m not saying we’re gonna wake up tomorrow and be bombarded with news but we’re in the actual home stretch now
she’s in Nashville and any day now we’re getting a livechat announcement
last night I had a dream I was in a hotel room eating waffles with my ex best friend and I was really excited but I didn’t know why
then suddenly we were at a Taylor Swift concert and Taylor came RIGHT UP to our section like we were 2 feet away from her and she was wearing the opening SOG outfit with the hat and her hair was long with the fringe again and she was singing 22 to us and I was like “wow this is amazing”
it means something but I haven’t figured out what yet lmao
if you don’t think some of the hate Taylor Swift receives is unnecessary and sexist let me just remind you that she once wore a black turtle neck, jeans and boots and this was a result
