I think the word ‘racism’ just holds a lot more power to me. To me racism is not just hating on a race. It means holding a race back from getting fair economic, social and human rights. There are so many statistics that show and prove that minorities, especially African-Americans, are treated unfairly in society.
So what I did I don’t consider to be racist. There is just no way that my photoset is going to cause any white people any systematic problems.
I was being rude and generalizing a group, but I was not saying that I HATE white people. I distinctly said “how I feel about white people” because that’s how I feel. I feel that white people as an institution, not individual white persons themselves, are oppressive and frankly a lot of them are still quite ignorant to their privilege. I am disgusted. I make funny faces. I can’t stand the injustices that still occur to people of color and I can’t stand when people (usually white people) say “oh no we are past that! We all have equal opportunity!” because we don’t.
I do not HATE white people. I hate what they stand for sometimes, but I would never hate a person based on their race.
