bashkircurly said: Look, if you're not black, you're not allowed to say the n-word. Ever. I don't think you understand the horrible and painful past that word has, and if you refuse to stop using it, then yes; you are in fact a racist.
thats really not true but ok? i never used the word to offend anyone. I’m very familiar with the word and its past. i wasn’t using it in an offensive or negative context.
YOU YELLED REPEATEDLY IT WHEN PPL SAID NOT TO HOW IS THAT NOT TRYING TO BE OFFENSIVE LMFAO
why is it so hard for people to fucking get that there are some cultural boundaries you are /not allowed to cross/ no matter how many times people want to yell about ITS JUST WORDS or how THEY DIDNT MEAN IT OFFENSIVELY
the N word isn’t your word to try to reclaim or use within the context of black culture if you aren’t black, it’s really that easy
you don’t get to cross the cultural boundaries of a culture you aren’t a part of and if you can’t get that then there’s really no hope for you
i don’t expect to be allowed to cross latino or asian cultural boundaries and i wouldn’t even think to use terminology i’m not meant to use Just Because I Didnt Mean It Negatively
whatever i’m sure this will just go in one ear and out the other for this clown car because i’m probably Just Some Pissed Off SJW
hey, white dude here. don’t worry i’ll try and be quick.
something i realized recently is people who engage in this kind of behavior, that being “i wasn’t trying to be racist” / “why are you so easily offended” and so on, never consider other people. they just look in themselves and ask “am i meaning to be offensive?”, come to the conclusion that they’re not, think absolutely no further on the subject and move on with their life. they’ve made peace with their behavior in their heads and that’s enough for them. in my mind these people are casual racists, whether they know it or not (if they’re a teen-ager, they probably don’t).
now i, again white-as-hell-family-mostly-from-germany-and-itally, have this idea that if something you do offends people and/or makes them uncomfortable, isn’t that enough? maybe in your head you can justify the n-word (or the one that really bothers me, using “gay” as a substitute for “lame” or “bad”) but a person of color (or shit, another white person) might become really annoyed or angry, and shouldn’t that be enough?
i hear the same argument for blackface, “you see, the character is black” / “it isn’t really racist when you think about it” / “it’s the 2000’s now, come on!” are ways these people have justified their shitty behavior in their minds. they become immediately defensive when someone else get’s upset because they never stop to think about the other people they share this planet with. it’s much easier to just stay within yourself then to think about other people. and that may be because they live a privileged life where they never have to answer for their lifestyle, something people of color and non-straight-males might have to constantly consider.
and yeah, maybe racism is the downward slope, i would hope things are much better then they were 30 years ago, but it’s not like this stuff doesn’t still exist. is it really that hard to be a little more considerate? people like to shout that political correctness is out of control, and there’s probably some truth to that, but i feel like “use of the n-word” has been pretty open and shut!
sorry, you need to fucking make peace with the fact that if you’re not black and you use the n-word, a lot of people are probably going to have a problem with it! and fuck, shouldn’t that be enough?

Victims of sexual assault expect privacy. But 16-year-old Jada was violated all over again once explicit images from her rape surfaced on Twitter. So Jada decided to take her story public.
“There’s no point in hiding,” the Houston teen tells KHOU. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”
I’m sharing this because certain people on twitter NEEDS TO BE STOP! Specially the ignorant side of black twitter! Every time something bad happen to a young black women or black girl twitter is quickly to explode it into something bigger! And Jada story is one of them! She’s a 16 yearls high school student she could be your sister,cousin, neighbor, or classmate! This tragic thing happened to her and these ignorant people on twitter looking for followers exploit this to point where the disgusting hashtag was created #jadapose. People tweeting pictures of themselves in the pose in which Jada was found! What I find even worse about this its that a lot of the people doing these poses are young black men and women. Something like this happen to someone who could possibly be your sister and instead of asking for justice you rather create a new meme? And some of them even argue “oh how do you know she got rape?” Does it matter? a picture of an underage girl laying on the floor looking like she’s passed out is not something be laughed at EVER! Like @_kimberrrly said ”A rape victim’s trauma is not grounds for a new internet meme. Pls do not partake in such ignorance. Report #jadapose pictures.”
I’m happy and proud of Jada for speaking and not letting this disgusting thing becoming any bigger
Which brings me to what I’m trying to ask or say here when will sexual assault towards black girls and young black women will be taking serious by young black people?
i truly don’t understand what kind of world we live in.This is absolutely horrific and abhorrent. Look at how few notes this has. Now watch as the so-called feminists and defenders of women on this site stay silent. The black woman’s body has no value to this society except for how it can be exploited and dehumanized. This is straight up misogynoir. This is an egregious act. This shows how sick our culture is. Rape culture is so pervasive and normalized that many will see nothing wrong with this new meme, much like as was the case with ‘Trayvoning’ (though that was white and non-Black POC racialized violence). This is also why I stay off of twitter.
i still cant believe this. my god.
