The Problem With Little White Girls (and Boys)

peaceshannon:

because it doesn’t hit home for some people until a white person says it (even though poc have been saying this for ages and ages and until they’re blue in the face).

flavorpill:

The central challenge faced by the characters depicted in both Clark’s songs and Jonze’s film is a personal one, a sense of trying to find and define one’s self in a world where the boundaries between physical reality and digital artificiality are blurred and stretched — Her, after all, catalogs its protagonist falling in love with an operating system, whileSt. Vincent evokes the idea of drifting in cyberspace, never certain of where or what you are: “Entombed in the shrine of zeros and ones/ Oh we fatherless features, you motherless creatures.”

I don’t understand the tumblr-wide obsession with lumpy-faced reptilian oatmeal men.
It baffles me just how many people think these men are the physical embodiment of sex. I know everybody has different tastes in what they find attractive, but I’d be willing to bet the majority of fans wouldn’t give any of these men a second-glance if they were just average, everyday guys walking down the street.
I’m starting to wonder if there’s some sort of tumblr-wide competition that I’m not aware of where everybody looks for the ugliest men in tv or film, then attempts to build the biggest fanbase for them.

I’ll put it to you like this,

When white people ask “when is white history month?” it’s exactly like going into the ‘ethnic’ hair care product aisle at walmart and asking

"where are all the products for white people hair?"

It is literally any other aisle that sells hair care products.

excellent example.

Don’t ya wish the privileged had more empathy? Whenever I see a white person throwing in the “you’re manipulative/spiteful” card, I feel like they need to step back a bit and think about how the system works in America, how they are basking in their privilege unconsciously while saying, “Hey man, it’s no big deal,” to one tidbit on a Tumblr post.
I feel like people who say, “it’s no big deal,” frequently have no real empathy or understanding for others, are too caught up in their privilege and are just trying to dismiss the issue, avoiding the confrontation that forces them to face their insecurities and work harder.What I dislike about myself sometimes, is that I’m too empathetic, and I feel guilty for forgiving the obnoxious privileged when I know they don’t really deserve it. I’m too nice. They shoot me with an argument, I back down - “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, no, I was just trying to throw my anger at you cos I was offended by your problematic statement, I’m sorry…”
How can I become more assertive when I know for a fact that I can’t change a person? (Lol fucking savior complex). With that in mind, how do we change a society when you can’t even change a person? I know there are many of you out there who like this as well. Someone might tell you, “Why couldn’t you just tell them off? It’s not like anybody really gives a fuck about you,” and I want to reassure you that it’s okay, you’re learning, and there is no shame in feeling like standing up for yourself is too much beyond your comfort level.Anyway, this blog has given me solace and awareness for a year now, and to all fellow angry Asian girls out there - I’m on your side, even if you don’t want to be on mine.
I hate white supremacy/white-ness cos it has turned the people I love into sad people.

toonzle asked: sorry if I sound dumb, but what is environmental racism? i looked it up but i'm still not sure?

ethiopienne:

Benjamin Chavis defines it as “racial discrimination in environmental policy-making and enforcement of regulations and laws, the deliberate targeting of communities of color for toxic waste facilities, the official sanctioning of the presence of life threatening poisons and pollutants for communities of color, and the history of excluding people of color from leadership of the environmental movement.”

Some very basic examples that literally do not even come close to scratching the surface include:

  • People of color make up the majority of those living in neighborhoods located within 1.8 miles of the nation’s hazardous waste facilities.
  • Neighborhoods with facilities clustered close together have higher percentages of people of color than those with non-clustered facilities.
  • African Americans are 79 percent more likely than whites to live in neighborhoods where industrial pollution is suspected of causing the greatest health danger.
  • Children of color who live in poor areas are more likely to attend schools filled with asbestos, live in homes with peeling lead paint, and play in parks that are contaminated.
  • Living near toxic waste facilities and in low income housing affects almost every aspect of life including food, water, and air. Homes, schools, and workplaces are deemed unsafe because of environmental hazards in the buildings, which are dilapidated and outdated.
  • These same children are nearly 9 times more likely than economically advantaged children to be exposed to lead levels so high they can cause severe learning disabilities and neurological disorders. 96 percent of African American children who live in inner cities have unsafe amounts of lead in their blood.
  • Poverty-stricken Native American communities face some of the worst toxic pollution problems in the country.
  • Three out of every five African American and Latinos live in areas near toxic waste sites, as well as live in areas where the levels of poverty are well above the national average.
  • Climate change effects disproportionately impact people in the “global South,” whereas the causes of climate change are disproportionately brought about by the West.
