That's it.

It's time to write an extensive essay in GD detailing THE problem. If you've been taking notice of the themes behind my serious OPs recently, you can pretty anticipate what I'm going to say.

It's going to take some time to elaborate on all of the details… But, hopefully, it'll turn some heads.

I don't know if I'll finish it today, but once I've posted it, I'll post the link in this thread.

Wish me well.

28 COMMON RACIST ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIORS



(By Debra Leigh, Organizer, Community Anti-Racism Education Initiative)

Below is a list of 28 common racist attitudes and behaviors that indicate a detour or wrong turn into white guilt, denial or defensiveness. Each is followed by a statement that is a reality check and consequence for harboring such attitudes.

1. I’m Colorblind.

“People are just people; I don’t see color; we’re all just human.” Or “I don’t think of you as Chinese.” Or “We all bleed red when we’re cut.” Or “Character, not color, is what counts with me.”

REALITY CHECK + CONSEQUENCE:

Statements like these assume that people of color are just like you, white; that they have the same dreams, standards, problems, and peeves that you do. “Colorblindness” negates the cultural values, norms, expectations and life experiences of people of color. Even if an individual white person could ignore a person’s color, society does not. By saying we are not different, that you don’t see the color, you are also saying you don’t see your whiteness. This denies the people of colors’ experience of racism and your experience of privilege.

“I’m colorblind” can also be a defense when afraid to discuss racism, especially if one assumes all conversation about race or color is racist. Speaking of another person’s color or culture is not necessarily racist or offensive. As my friend Rudy says, I don’t mind that you notice that I’m black.” Color consciousness does not equal racism.

The AP desperately needs to get its shit together and start existing in the 21st Century…

It's not the 1950's anymore.

When GMC changed the name of their SUV from The McKinley to The Denali, GOPers didn't complain

Probably because they couldn't blame Obama for it.

Wait... It was never called the "McKinley?" It was always called "Denali," just like the mountain?

Jeez! GOPer will whine about anything.

Fuck 'em, they'll have to live with it.

Dr. Oliver Sacks, Dr. Wayne Dyer and Director Wes Craven… Rest in power.
