"Don't turn away the ignorant because the internet is confusing!" Right, so you should totally repeat answers to questions that white people will keep trying to ask; because like literally anything new one is learning is confusing at first. Okay, they putting that pressure to teach but not taking the responsibility to learn again.

reverseracism answered:

EXACTLY! Exactly. Before anyone clicks ask it says check the tags. We get plenty of repeat question that we have in our tags.

Or could be answered with a quick google search. Don’t get offended if we ask you to use google. Chances are he answer is right there. I’m not going to spoon feed this information, I’m going to guide and peak a curious interest to educate yourself.

Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.
my uncle left this comment on his friend’s Facebook status, a white British man who was bragging about how easy it is to be a native English speaker when trekking to different nations. (via commanderspock)

I'm confused, do you mean white people just straight up have no culture or that the term "white culture" is irrelevant because there are many subgroups to white people or whatever? Not trying to be a little bitch, I just genuinely want to know

whitepeoplestealingculture answered:

A good article is this .

Also keep in mind that this “white” culture is based upon anglo-American and European lifestyles which were forced upon other races for centuries; these practices became normalized and are still practiced and mixed into cultures today. Therefore, there is no “stealing” from white culture.

I've always been confused about tanning. Like how can a person be racist to someone for being dark but go spend money to become darker?

This is the western beauty mentality.

Hi, I am Korean. Anyways, lately white people have been kind of bothering me always making fun of how there is so much plastic surgery in Korea and how Korean people praise white people and wanna be like them... I argue back by saying its not true and that there is plastic surgery in all communities not just the Korean community. Is there anything more I can say? like something powerful to shut them up? Ahhh I would appreciate it if u could help thanks so much in advance!!

reverseracism answered:

First of all, if they try to discuss about the eye lid surgery; make sure to let them know that white people aren’t the only ones without the eyelid gold.

Secondly be sure to remind them that billions of dollars are spent every year by white people for butt enlargements, tans, and lip injections. Bring up iggy azalea’s and rita Ora’s wannabe light skinned white selfs. Bring up how they are constantly misusing AAVE to sound cooler and that they should stop trying to twerk because they look ridiculous.

Medievalpoc Presents: History of POC in Math and Science Week, 8-3-14 through 8-9-14!

Medievalpoc’s first Patreon Milestone Goal has been reached, and the History of POC in Math and Science Week is happening soon! This all-new themed week will focus on the contribution of people of color to the fields of mathematics, science, physics, medicine, natural philosophy, and much, much more!

There will be a focus on primary documents with interactive elements, visual and documentary evidence, innovators and their biographies, and notable personages of color from the Islamic Golden Age, Medieval Europe, African Empires and Universities, Asian images and texts, and discussion about early modern globalization regarding how this knowledge traveled.

If you have an article, image, document, or commentary you would like to submit, here’s your chance to weigh in on this topic! Please use the “Math and Science Week” and any other relevant tags for your submission, and I look forward to hearing about your favorite mathematicians and scientists of color!

when i say white people don’t experience oppression, that means they specifically cannot experience any form of systematic oppression based on the colour of their skin, because they fucking formed that system and continue to perpetuate that system.

if you’re white you can be oppressed on different axis:

  • if you’re white and gay, you experience homophobia
  • if you’re white and poor, you experience classism
  • if you’re white and disabled, you experience ableism
  • if you’re white and a woman, you experience sexism 
  • if you’re white and jewish, you experience anti-semitism 

no one is fucking saying life is suddenly rainbows because you’re white.

the only thing that people are fucking saying is that you will not ever experience systematic oppression/erasure/violence because of your skin. you won’t be killed for being white, wearing a hoodie and coming home from 7-11.

Hey! So, a hypothetical question. Not a troll, just genuinely wondering what you think. If, hypothetically, history were switched and black people were in Europe and were essentially lucky like white people actually were in earlier times, would they have done the same thing to white people? (Slavery, colonialism, genocide and all the other terrible things) Do you think when people obtain power, they will do terrible things regardless?

lagos2bahia answered:

I don’t know what you mean by “lucky like white people”. I think firstly you need to realise that white Europeans where not “lucky”. They were brutal, violent and just plain sick. They made a choice to have no respect for humanity, and had absolutely no morals at all. The reason they were successful in colonising the world and enslaving black people was because they enacted a level of brutality and savagery that honestly I will never be able to fully understand. It is also important to understand that these ideas of superiority did not suddenly spring out of thin air. I mean if you study European history and look events like the crusades you can see that these ideas were always present in their culture.

Black people were in already in their lands living great lives before colonialism. My ancestors (well my maternal ancestors) were living happily in Yorubaland. We had technology, education and innovation and we didn’t feel the need to go around slaughtering people, destroying their homelands and cultures and enslaving them. Do you really think Africa was one large barren and poverty stricken wasteland prior to colonialism? There was vast amounts of power pre-colonial times, for example, the Kongo Kingdom, it used to be huge and vast empire, it was also big centre for trade with the Portuguese. All of this was ruined of course when King Leopold of Belgium decided to completely destroy the country and kill and mutilate large amounts of the population. Before imperialism and slavery, did we go around killing and raping your ancestors? Stealing your land and ignore the rights of your people’s? Did we rape your ancestors, deny them their humanity, and enslave them? Did we go around cutting off the arms and legs of men, women and children in your nations? When African people’s used to travel to Europe they didn’t go to conquer and capture, they went and contributed to society, shared ideas and spread technology.

There is a big difference between people doing terrible things for power (which of course is wrong) and people being just plain sick, which is what the white Europeans were. It is only a total lack of any single shred of morality which allowed them to do what they did. The savagery and brutality that was enacted is not some reflection of some great human flaw, it’s a consequence of deliberate actions and choices that were made and taken by the white people.

I think you’re missing the point of the question, which is “If the situation were reversed, would blacks have colonized whites/would Africa have colonized Europe/Asia/the Americas?”

There is literally no way of knowing the answer to this. But I don’t have a ton of faith in human nature.

I didn’t miss the point of the question, you simply cannot read. I wrote out a long answer showing that pre colonial times there were many time periods where African people’s were far ahead of Europe in terms of innovation and development, did they ever colonise the European people’s? No. African people’s had a large presence in Europe for centuries. Did they enslave European people’s? No. Please read properly.

And it’s not ‘human’ nature to colonise and murder all other peoples you come across. It’s white, European nature. No other society on Earth has wrought as much savagery and catastrophe on innocent people as the Europeans. Perpetual, international genocide is very much a European phenomenon. Don’t pass it off as ‘natural’.
