not mine, but a beautifully set up portrait i had to share.
Committing acts of disrespect against one’s culture is not beautiful.
Racist dumbasses! Always fun.
I wanna race with the sundown
I want a last breath that I don’t let out
forgive every being
the bad feelings, it’s just me
i won’t wait for answers
you can’t keep me here. 🌻
Wow, had a whole reply typed and then Tumblr erased it. Sorry.
This is a problem with many sites. They won’t address the racism because they don’t want to be seen as “censoring” people there. And in most cases, they won’t even get involved.
I think the best you can do is to keep trying to educate people no matter what. You may not change the whole site in one day, but you might make it through to a few of them.
Thanks, and good luck!
feel free to tumblr bomb her FB page
Let’s shut this racist down.
Thanks so much. It’s really nice to hear something positive among all the ignorant, ranting hate mail. ^_^
I think if something is given to you as a gift by someone of that culture, then they mean for you to have it. If a Native or First Nation person gives you a headdress, it should be fine to keep it. But you’re correct, wearing it would not be appropriate. Good question. :)
No. Because racism is about power and oppression, and it is impossible for white people to be systematically oppressed. Also, these people are stupid. Calling them stupid is not racism.
For example, your question to me is stunningly ignorant and privileged. There! I just told you the truth, and it wasn’t racist!
