irrelevant background

Hellooo, Fellow White People

It is time for us to admit it.

I have told a racist joke. I have laughed at a racist joke. So have you.

I have racially profiled that one person (or, okay, possibly lots of people) while I was walking down the street or buying a car or sitting in church or going to class or on the dancefloor or whatever. So have you.

I, as a white person, have benefitted from White Privilege. I have benefitted from racism. Any discrimination I may have experienced due to my gender, orientation, state of health, religion, or economic background is irrelevant. I have benefitted from systemic racism. I have benefitted from White Privilege.

It is time for us to admit to this. It is time for us to acknowledge this. It is time for us, as white people, to admit that WE ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.


So we’ve admitted it. Now what?

Remember that racist joke? Never tell that joke again. Don’t tell it ironically. Don’t tell it to an audience that you know wont be offended. Just never tell that racist joke again.

Stop laughing at racist jokes. Even if there isn’t anyone around whom you think might be offended. ESPECIALLY if you think there might be some truth to the joke. Stop laughing at racist jokes. If your friend tells that kind of joke, it is now your job to call them on it. It is now your job to tell them “Hey, that’s kinda racist. We shouldn’t be telling that sort of joke.”

Be aware of your White Privilege. Use if for good, if you can: this means advocating Black Lives Matter. This means not letting that one guy on the bus harass that Muslim/Mexican/black person. This means staying as a witness and getting out your phone to film it if you see a cop interacting with a black person. This means actively making an effort.



I am not speaking as a former White Supremacist who’s seen the light. I am speaking as a ‘perfectly nice’ white person who grew up near the train-tracks in a neighborhood that my mother once described as ‘recently desegregated’. Most of the kids at my school were black; all the people at my church were white. At school I learned about how racism was over thanks to Martin Luther King Jr. At church I learned that God called us to love all peoples of the earth, and at Sunday School we learned a song about how “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world… Red, brown, yellow, black, and white, they are precious in his sight; Jesus loves the little children of the world!”

All this is to say, I did not grow up thinking of myself as a racist. I did not find out how much racism existed in my modern, civilized, south-of-the-Mason/Dixon-Line state until recently.

You don’t have to actively ‘hate’ black people, Mexicans, Asians, immigrants, Jews, or Muslims to be part of the problem.

Fellow white people, it is time for us to admit that we have all said, done, and thought racist things. It is time for us to stop talking about hurt feelings when we hear the word ‘racism’.  It is tiem for us to actively try to do better.

IT IS TIME FOR US, AS WHITE PEOPLE, TO ACTIVELY TRY TO DO BETTER. IT IS TIME TO STAND WITH STANDING ROCK. STAND WITH BLACK LIVES MATTER. IT IS TIME TO ADMITT THAT I, PERSONALLY, HAVE DONE WRONG AND IT IS LONG PAST TIME TO DO BETTER

Hey @snovyda. It appears you haven’t been in the best spirits lately so I drew this incredibly crappy MS Paint of Gary King with an irrelevant background for you. I hope you enjoy it and laugh at its pathetic-ness. I’ve found out that I have terrible artistic abilities.I figured out that I have to exploit my terrible artistic abilities for all its worth (Which isn’t very much). Enjoy the crap drawing. I tried traditional, but trust me, you don’t want to see those failed attempts. I hope I’ve accomplished in making you smile.

when people praise steven universe and other recent cartoons for diversity, i get sad, because class of 3000 did that first back in 2006. they act like only the current cartoons are being progressive, only paying attention to steven universe and we bare bears. why praise those shows? su has a mostly alien cast and wbb has irrelevant background characters. co3k main characters are 100% human. 

human AUs and headcanons mean nothing and will never be canon. ya’ll ask for diversity all the time but still ignore class of 3000? 

oh right its because it’s a black show, so surprising. nobody will care if the two main focused characters are black males. the real reason why it’s obscure, actually. not just because it was cancelled due to budget problems, lawsuit, and was on for a short time.

Currently weeping over the fact that when Hannibal asks Will where the difference between the past and future comes from, Will replies with ‘Mine? Before you and after you.Yours? It’s all starting to blur.’ He’s essentially saying that he cannot dwell on the past nor think about the future because Hannibal is his present. Everything revolves around him and anything extraneous simply fades into the background, irrelevant. Well. That’s what it suggests to me. It could mean all or nothing. But ugh. Hannigram. 

why can’t my mind remember important things needed for school like formulas or signifgant dates in history

instead it’s just chock full of stuff like irrelevant background character names from various cartoons. can i pass the SAT by naming all of the antagonists from codename kids next door??? no??? 

thanks for NOTHING, brain

Hi friends :U I made my first youtube video the other day ~!

I’m no expert yet…but heyy…I’m reppin for the brown girls on YouTube since I haven’t seen much WoC representation or diversity on the comedy/vlog side..especially in the British youtube scene anyways.

By starting this channel, I hope it encourages more brown girls to get on to YouTube and help overcome all these negative stereotypes of brown girls not having senses of humour (~a video about this in progress) created by the fact we’re either underrepresented or only represented in the form of an irrelevant background character.

So here I am..the protagonist of my own channel.. bringing the spice to youtube…as.. totallyspice 😂😜

You’re going to see a mix of comedy skits, vlogs of me being a weirdo in general and some deep and meaningful videos regarding social issues etc akin to the posts I make here on tumblr so..if that sounds good..

I’d really appreciate it if you could show some support for ya brown girl next door..by SUBSCRIBING AND SHARING this on your blogs ♡

●Twitter and Instagram: @totallyspice Thank you!! See ya around 😙 xo
