The criticism of black people by non black people is always over-exaggerated and facilitates no discussion on what the actual problem is. Like can y’all just leave criticizing black people TO black people? Because y’all have shown countless times again that you don’t know how to do it without being anti-black, racist, and overly aggressive.
LOL Kanye and Chance aren’t “speaking their minds”.
Janelle Monáe said it beautifully: “I believe in free thinking. But I don’t believe in free thinking if its at the expense of the oppressed. If your free thinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to oppress black people, minorities, I think its bulls*t”.
Let’s do a little recap of Amy Schumer’s racism, okay?
Amy Schumer joked about men of color being more likely to sexually harass vs YT men.
In her 2012 show “Mostly Sex Stuff,” Amy Schumer insulted African women’s names, called them “wild,” and performed a racist impersonation of Black folks.
Amy suggested that Latina women were “crazy” during the 2015 MTV Video Awards.
Once, Schumer said, “I used to date Hispanic guys, but now I prefer consensual” implying that all Hispanic men are rapists – a suggestion that mirrors the racism of Donald Trump.
In her latest stunt, Amy parodied Beyonce’s “Formation” music video which was originally a commentary on race and police brutality. She used a moment that celebrated Blackness and turned it into a whitewashed opportunity to make cash.
And then, someone sent me this tweet below of Amy’s anti-Asian racism.
But aye!! She’s a feminist, right? She’s down for the cause, right? She talks about body positivity and all that YT feminist jazz while she shits on POC, right?
Funny. Very funny.
The Love Life Of An Asian Guy/FB
don’t forget that she raped a drunk guy and tried to make it sound like it was just a weird encounter
Reblogging this because Amy Schumer’s new movie is all over our dashes so this should be too
Also her brand of body positivity is so condescending. The whole message of her latest movie is “if you are confident you will get everything you want even though you are fat"Also the big joke of this comedy movie is a fat woman believing she is beautiful.
The Twilight Zone s3e9
“All the Dachaus must remain standing. The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwalds, the Auschwitzes – all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard. Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all, their conscience. And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers. Something to dwell on and to remember, not only in the Twilight Zone but wherever men walk God’s Earth.”
Reblogging for the good post and the excellent addition, but also to add another Rod Serling quote from The Twilight Zone that has always been, will always be, important:
“Any state, any entity, any ideology which fails to recognise the worth, the dignity, the rights of Man – that state is obsolete.”
From “He’s Alive” (Ep 4 Se 4), which is about a neo-nazi leader being instructed by Hitler, apparently back from the dead:
Portrait of a bush-league fuhrer named peter vollmer.
A sparse little man who feeds off his self-delusions and finds himself perpetually hungry for want of greatness in his diet.
And like some goose-stepping predecessors, he searches for something to explain his hunger and rationalize why a world passes him by without saluting.
The something he looks for, and finds, is in a sewer.
Where will he go next, this phantom from another time, this resurrected ghost of a previous nightmare- chicago, los angeles, miami, florida, vincennes, indiana, syracuse, new york? Anyplace, everyplace, where there’s hate, where there’s prejudice, where there’s bigotry.
He’s alive so long as these evils exist.
Remember that when he comes to your town.
Remember it when you hear his voice speaking out through others.
Remember it when you hear a name called, a minority attacked, any blind, unreasoning assault on a people or any human being.
He’s alive because through these things, we keep him alive.
You’ve always loved history. Regardless of geography or blood,
knowing how the past functioned, not in dates and names but in daily
details, has always been fascinating. So this is not unknown ground for
you. And Renaissance Faires are fun: spending the day outside, geeking
endlessly about the minutia of history with other like-minded folk,
doing hands on demonstrations for kids. There’s nothing here you don’t
Sure, you may be the only Black person there, definitely one of a
few, but don’t let that stop you. The chances of anyone throwing rocks
at you are low. The chances of anyone laughing at you are high, but when
has that stopped you before? […]
Some will try to tell you that
you are wrong, out of time, out of place. They are wrong. African people
have always been travelers, traders, and scholars. The Mediterranean
has never been impenetrable and we have always been everywhere.
ignorance is not the truth.
