“I’m not racist, I’d love this character even if they weren’t white”

Oh?

Is

That

So?

You

Absolutely

Positively 

Sure

About

That?

A white: but saying Asians are naturally smart is POSITIVE discrimination:)))

Me: The model minority myth was invented by whites as a tool of antiblackness to create divisions between communities of color and prove that ‘anyone can succeed in America if they just TRY hard enough!!1!’ thereby implying that antiblackness is black ppl’s own fault for not TRYING enough. Additionally, it relies on false interpretations of data and hurts the opportunities of all Asians, particularly less privileged ones, and dehumanizes Asians by furthering stereotypes of us as some kind of innately robot-like monolithic-minded hive, devalues our individual accomplishments and uses us as a tool to further antiblackness

fun fact: y'all don’t have to throw black ppl under the bus or belittle black struggles in order to bring light to issues other poc face. like its 100% possible to speak on issues other poc face without insulting black people and show casing ur anti-blackness

I don’t care who you are, if you complain about the amount of attention Black Lives Matter and Black issues get you are antiblack. “But Native Americans!” “But Asians!” Shut up. Tearing down Black people does not help any other community. Yes it can be frustrating when issues you care about don’t get enough focus, but I promise it’s not Black people’s activism that’s getting in your way. Do your own work and don’t act entitled to what gains Black activists have achieved. You’re not as progressive or nice as you think you are if you’re willing to use Black people as a scapegoat.

Fun facts for antiblack poc:

• It is not black peoples fault your people aren’t getting the representation or visibility they deserve.

• It is no one’s fault but your own if you haven’t found or participated in activism aimed at helping your community.

• You can speak on your issues without simultaneously stepping on black people. Wild concept, I know, but you can do it! I believe in you!

• That hypervisbility you hate us blacks soooo much for having contributes to getting us harassed and killed and we hate it, too.

• Ya need to do betta

In other news, eugenics are alive and well in the U S of A.

i wish all the (majority white) wlw/sapphic/lbt women blogs were as openly anti racist as they are anti twerf/transmisogyny, obvi this isnt every blog and we non-trans women need to do better for trans women in our community

Its so backhanded to write “ trans friendly” in your bio and then be a huge fucking racist on your blog, as if trans women of color arent more likely to receive racialized transphobic violence at the hands of white supremacy, and capitalism, there is nothing “trans friendly” about being a racist or letting racists come into our spaces

i just wish more white wlw were sticking there necks out for black and brown women by openly being anti racist/racism on their blogs, listening when we call them out on racism/antiblackness/cultural appropriation, donating and boosting our donation posts and supporting/uplifting our unique struggles

We (black and brown wlw) see who’s selfies you reblog, who’s donation posts you choose to boost, who you choose to follow, who you choose to uplift, love and advocate for

and its nobody like us

Do better
