anonymous asked:

I was wondering how to deal with antiblackness in family. My family is korean and makes fun of black people hair sometimes and they say antiblack things and I say not to do that, but then my dad is like the "man of the house" so he screams to me and shut me up and I can't say anymore because they all tell me I'm being disrespecting. I'm being a bad child acting like know it all. I don't know what to do if i don't say anything I feel like I agree if when I just don't say stop and let them say it

In your situation I would say that it might be better for your safety to not say anything. Not saying something can be perceived, both by your family and by others, as you agreeing with them, but in your case I would say it sounds like you taking the safe option. 

I hesitate to tw tag this as abuse because everyone has the right to define their situations, but to me it sounds like your parents are possibly being abusive to you by screaming at you and treating oyu like that. If its worth anything I don’t think you’re being disrespectful, or a bad child, or anything negative they’ve told you. I think you’re trying to call them in and make a point that it’s not okay to be oppressive, but they aren’t receptive.

If anything, you’re trying to help them unlearn antiblackness. You not being able to get through to them is not your fault, and I’d rather you stay safe than be yelled at. -NJ
