It’s not about race until you make it.
I heard this before. I remember when people were like “there’s 100 thousand reasons why Hollywood Egypt movies are not suppose to be historical accurate”…
And then the need to be historically accurate suddenly comes up when Broadway decided to put up a Black Cinderella.
So, it’s not about race until sh*t like this happens in your Privileged world…
creaturefeatureandpiglets asked: Before I say this, I agree that white people will probably never know what it's like to experience the type of racism that black people experience. Please know I agree that. But now I just want to say, when you said a dark skinned person can't be racist you said a black person can't judge someone for their skin color (unless I misunderstood what you said my brain's not wired right), which I know is a lie because I have seen black people hate not only whites but Asians and and Native Americans.
Black people can be racist… against other Black people when they use White Systemic rules. Any PoC can be racists to other PoC when they use White Systemic beliefs.
Yes, when I said Black people can’t be racist, that’s not a full statement. Black people can’t be racist to WHITE people. But other races? Yes. Black people can only be prejudice because we don’t have a system in place that can be used as leverage.
P.S. - replace “Black people” with other PoCs and within the last paragraph and it’s still true.
- Quevanzhané Wallis as Annie: YOU'RE RUINING MY CHILDHOOD, ANNIE IS A RED-HEADED WHITE GIRL, NOT SOME GIRL FROM THE "GHETTO" THIS IS STUPID, IM NOT RACIST I SWEAR
- Rooney Mara as Princess Tiger Lily: Ah yes, she was perfect for the role. What do you mean whitewashing? She is a good actress. Native American women don't try hard enough to go into acting, that's their fault. Make your own movies if that's what you want to see.
