Anonymous asked:

We don't call each other "Cracker" like how black people call each other "Nigga" because we're not dumb enough to participate in oppressing our own race hahaha. If black people were so concerned about racism, they'd stop using the word. And I guess you forgot how the African governments hired people to capture THEIR OWN people to sell them into slavery. But you're proud of your African roots? That makes total sense. And I guess you forgot about all the white men who DIED to free the slaves.

You literally cannot oppress your own race, you ignorant dumbfuck. White people don’t want to say cracker because it holds no meaning to them, but they want to call each other and Black people nigga because they still have that need to have power over Black people. Simple. Y’all think you can still tell us what to do, and when we’re like “haha nah bitch” you get all offended and upset because you’re being told that of ALL THE WORDS IN THE WORLD you cannot say this one thing which you all previously used to oppress us—it’s really funny because most of the other slurs aren’t this big of a deal, but it just happens to be the one against Black people that y’all can’t let go.

Our choosing or not choosing to say the word ‘nigga’ means nothing in the grand scheme of racism. Our choosing or not choosing to say the word ‘nigga’ does not change the fact that Black and Latino men are targeted more than any other group in the prison industry. Our choosing or not choosing to say the word ‘nigga’ does not change the fact that people like Richard Sherman will be called “thugs” because they have confidence, even when they literally have every right to have that confidence because they are undeniably the best in their fields. Our choosing or not choosing to say the word ‘nigga’ does not change the fact that the KKK and other anti-Black groups are still active throughout the United States. Our choosing or not choosing to say the word ‘nigga’ does absolutely nothing but piss off racist White people because you’re upset you can’t say a word you were previously allowed to say with no reprimands. It’s a tiny thing that really pisses White people off because we are breaking down your power over us every time we say it, in your minds. It’s a word of rebellion and revolution and y’all can’t deal.

Africa is not a country. The racial dynamics there pre-colonialism were very different from now. It was not about race. Each tribe was essentially its own self-supporting state, and if two tribes were at war, no holds were barred, including enslaving (which was class-based, not race) other people. It wasn’t a matter of race. Just as serfdom was not necessarily based on race, it was based more on your position in the social hierarchy. The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was entirely about race, and was when the concept of three races was introduced by the European colonizers: White people were those who were to be held superior, Brown people were those who were “civil” enough to be colonized, and Black people were to be enslaved. That’s racialization, and that’s different from a classist system.

Name 10 White people who died to free the slaves and that still will not account for the hundreds of thousands of White people involved in the slave trades, the oppression of Africans and other non-White peoples based on their race, the genocides, the murders, the rapes, the beatings, and etc. that they perpetrated.

Your ignorance is not my fucking problem.

“when she was 7, a boy pushed her on the playground
she fell headfirst into the dirt and came up with a mouthful of gravel and lines of blood chasing each other down her legs
when she told her teacher what happened, she laughed and said ‘boys will be boys honey don’t let it bother you
he probably just thinks you’re cute’
but the thing is,
when you tell a little girl who has rocks in her teeth and scabs on her knees that hurt and attention are the same
you teach her that boys show their affection through aggression
and she grows into a young woman who constantly mistakes the two
because no one ever taught her the difference
‘boys will be boys’
turns into
‘that’s how he shows his love’
and bruises start to feel like the imprint of lips
she goes to school with a busted mouth in high school and says she was hit with a basketball instead of his fist
the one adult she tells scolds her
‘you know he loses his temper easily
why the hell did you have to provoke him?’
so she shrinks
folds into herself, flinches every time a man raises his voice
by the time she’s 16 she’s learned her job well
be quiet, be soft, be easy
don’t give him a reason
but for all her efforts, he still finds one
‘boys will be boys’ rings in her head
‘boys will be boys
he doesn’t mean it
he can’t help it’
she’s 7 years old on the playground again
with a mouth full of rocks and blood that tastes like copper love
because boys will be boys baby don’t you know
that’s just how he shows he cares
she’s 18 now and they’re drunk
in the split second it takes for her words to enter his ears they’re ruined
like a glass heirloom being dropped between the hands of generations
she meant them to open his arms but they curl his fists and suddenly his hands are on her and her head hits the wall and all of the goddamn words in the world couldn’t save them in this moment
she touches the bruise the next day
boys will be boys
aggression, affection, violence, love
how does she separate them when she learned so early that they’re inextricably bound, tangled in a constant tug-of-war
she draws tally marks on her walls ratios of kisses to bruises
one entire side of her bedroom turns purple, one entire side of her body
boys will be boys will be boys will be boys
when she’s 20, a boy touches her hips and she jumps
he asks her who the hell taught her to be scared like that and she wants to laugh
doesn’t he know that boys will be boys?
it took her 13 years to unlearn that lesson from the playground
so I guess what I’m trying to say is
i will talk until my voice is hoarse so that my little sister understands that aggression and affection are two entirely separate things
baby they exist in difference universes
my niece can’t even speak yet but I think I’ll start with her now
don’t ever accept the excuse that boys will be boys
don’t ever let him put his hands on you like that
if you see hate blazing in his eyes don’t you ever confuse it with love
baby love won’t hurt when it comes
you won’t have to hide it under long sleeves during the summer
and
the only reason he should ever reach out his hand
is to hold yours”
