There are real Caucasian people who live in the Caucasus region, and they are not white.—

fondulady asked: When people say, "color doesn't matter" it translates to me as "your oppression doesn't matter. I'm not going to recognize that your identity, cultural practices, and social experiences are something that you're affected by everyday." Pretending that everyone is equal is the perfect way to keep power systems in place. Race doesn't magically go away when people ignore it.
the most fucking annoying phrase of all time:
"i don’t care if you’re black, white, yellow, green, purple, or blue"
I always want to say “nobody is green purple or blue you annoying fuck stop trying to pretend racism isn’t a thing by saying we’re all equal you shitface” or something
