i dont see race

Why "Not Seeing Race" Is BULLSHIT

I hate when white people tell me that they “dont see race”.

1. First and foremost, if you are saying this to me, its likely because i am black. I’m willing to bet all i own, my best cow, and my firstborn son that you have NEVER said this to a white person. Therefore, you are already contradicting yourself. You see my race… unless you are blind cause i quite literally wear it on my sleeve. 
2. You dont have to be colorblind. Recognize and respect the cultural differences and social disparities between the races. If you’re not interested in making change, then at least make an effort to understand. You dont have to be colorblind to be not racist. 
3. Its insulting. When I hear a person say “i dont see race”, the first thing that I think “great, so in your mind everyone is the same”. Untrue. Mike Brown wasnt shot by someone who “didnt see race”. Eric Garner wasnt murdered by someone who “didnt see race”. the millions of black people that have fallen victim to the atrocities of slavery, and then systemic legalized inequality and segregation, and now racial profiling, police brutality, laws set up to make it legal to murder us like “Stand your ground” WERE NOT VICTIMS OF PEOPLE WHO DID NOT SEE RACE. 
Not only is race seen, my race is almost always seen negatively. When you tell me you dont see race, im assuming its because you dont associate me with your stereotypical image of black people and that because I’m not the stereotype, i must be special or colorless, ie not black. You dont see MY race because you think im too educated, too articulate, too non-niggerish to be considered black. Thats what you REALLY mean to say. And the fact that you subconsciously believe that black people can not be articulate or that im some type of an anomaly is all i need to know to know that you DO see race in the worst way possible deep down. 
4. You dont see race. Well, whether actually dont see it or not; ITS THERE. PEOPLE OF COLOR EXIST. AND YOU DONT GET TO IGNORE US OR OUR CULTURAL DIFFERENCES OR OUR STRUGGLES JUST BECAUSE THE REALITY MAKES YOU UNCOMFORTABLE BECAUSE YOU ARE FORCED TO REALIZE JUST HOW FUCKED UP WHITE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TO EVERYONE EVER AND BECAUSE THAT REALIZATION MAKES YOU UNCOMFORTABLE, YOU PRIVILEGED ASSHOLE.

Ok. Have a nice night.

COSPLAY IS ABOUT HAVING FUN AND APPRECIATING CHARACTERS THAT YOU LOVE AND COSPLAY IS FOR ANYBODY NO MATER YOU BODY TYPE, SKIN COLOR, OR ANYTHING. QUIT GETTING MAD AT PEOPLE FOR COSPLAYING NOODLE WHEN THEY ARENT JAPANESE. MOST ANIME CHARACTERS ARE JAPANESE OR SOME OTHER RACE THAT ISNT WHITE AND I DONT SEE YALL HATING ON PEOPLE FOR COSPLAYING THEM. QUIT HATING ON PEOPLE AND LET THEM HAVE FUN BEING A CHARACTER THAT THEY LOVE.

sometimes im happy when guys mistake me for another race because it means that they dont look at me and immediately pull out all of the asian girl stereotypes and then decide to tag onto me because of them

Juuust a friendly little reminder...

 "Equality" DOES NOT mean “we are all the same” and that’s it and we’re all just one big boring grey blob of human with no differences whatsoever.
Equality means acknowledging, celebrating, and respecting our diversity. Basically realizing that humans can be different and not being a dick about it.
We’re not trying to be special little snowflakes. 

People of Color exist whether you like it or not.

People of varying sexual orientations exist whether you wanna see it or not.

People who do not fall into the gender binary exist whether you like it or not. 

I mean sure, it doesn’t “matter” per se, but it’s still there.

What kind of hint? For me to my crush it's either boom i like you or i act like nothing is happening.. I dont know, when i see him suddenly my hearts begins to race (reference) and i can't think straight.. Plus if you tell me to flirt with someone else i can do it but with him, he makes me feel things and it's ew ahahhaha

VOODOO DOLL YASS HAHA
And okay if direct flirting hints make you nervous maybe you should try something that can’t make your tongue mix words like, being closer to him than to other people, touching him — like accidentally touching his hand, poking him in the arm playfully, slightly pushing his shoulder if he makes you laugh, also always look him in the eyes and stuff like that! Act different around him than around other people and maybe he’ll notice!

anonymous asked:

No, what people mean when they say"i dont see race"is that they are looking at every individual objectively, not giving into stereotypes or classifications. It is not an ignorant thing to say "i don't see race" because we are all fucking human beings

white people usually say it with good intent but that doesn’t really matter bc it still comes across as a micro-aggression
