One thing I dislike about UConn is the amount of racism that discreetly rolls off the tongues - mostly on YikYak, actually - of MANY of you. Even more disgusting is the fact that these people are all students - students who are supposed to be the progressive free-thinkers/leaders of our future….
This is the best post of the night!
- Azalea’s post-racial mess: America’s oldest race tale, remixed
casual racism includes:
the way people trivialize black women so much to the point where fat black women are constantly the subject of gifs and nobody will admit that it’s because they enjoy the stereotype of the “big black ghetto woman” doing something like “ahh praise da lawd” or “ohh babe” or some shit like that
Y’all say stuff like this and I can pull up your blog and there are no black women.
You’ll come here and follow to only “like”, never to reblog, because you don’t want to give anyone the idea that you believe black women are attractive.
I can scroll past basic ass white girls on this website who have over 100,000 but look like uneatable protein and come back to my blog and see beautiful melanin with 1/10th of that….
But yea everyone’s beautiful as you say # privilege
Woooooooh fire in this post
Just because the body responds automatically does not mean the impulse was ever wanted, invited, or condoned.
This is also often used as an argument to dismiss male survivors’ claims, that they responded physically therefore they consented. This is absolute bullshit.
Remember. Arousal does not mean consent.
American music culture 101, from Country to Rock to Pop to Hip-hop, in 3 easy steps:
1. when black americans invent it, initially detest it, mock it, claim it is destroying american youth and proper sensibilities
2. realize it isn’t going anywhere, co-opt it, engage in it and profit from it
3. obscure its origins and repackage it in such a way that the next generation understands it as a product of white american excellence
Walking around campus last night to be met with some drunk ass white dude shouting at me and calling me the n-word from his car…
I don’t give a fuck whether or not you end it with an “a” or a “hard r” if you’re white you don’t say that shit ever, least of all in my presence or towards me.
So many fucking racists and bigots here at UConn. Like for fucks sake you’re in college, you should have some sort of recognition that you’re a piece of fucking trash for not treating others with equality and respect.
