european flat

you know that old ask i answered about non-US racism. it’s kinda still going around and i can’t believe i still get some comments like: ‘ok but do you know chinese and japanese are the same race: asian’

…i’m talking about japanese supremacy in asia during WW2 and people somehow think WESTERN race categories would be relevant? by default than the enormous amounts of oppression going on across asia cannot be racism until we decide to oppress somebody who belongs to another Western race category. and all those ‘antisemitism is not racism’…idk man what is it then?! all those nazi scientists spouting race theories aren’t enough? 

is it so difficult to just accept that race isn’t constructed the same way everywhere and isn’t always about skin colour…
