racism isnt over

On all of these “Good Things About 2016” posts, I haven’t once seen one about the fact that London elected Sadiq Khan as mayor, who is a practicing Muslim, the son of a Pakistani immigrant bus driver, and who grew up on a council estate - as opposed to Boris Johnson who went to Eton and Oxbridge - and who takes part in interfaith celebrations with Christian, Jewish and Sikh religious leaders, who supports LGBTQ rights even after receiving death threats for his activism, and who withstood an Islamophobic campaign from his rival to become the first Muslim mayor of any European capital city.

I reckon that’s worth celebrating.

The Struggle:
  • White People: Oh I LOVE Black music! *turns on jazz, blues rock, Tupac album*
  • White People: Oh man! I love Black fashion! *wears timbs, nikes, urban streetwear*
  • White People: Oh man. I love Black women/men! *get ass injections, tan skin, frizz out hair, plump lips, smangs black men*
  • White People: Oh man I LOVE Soul Food! *eat at Sylvia's, Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles*
  • White People: Oh I love Black Culture! *attend hip hop shows and parties, worships Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna*
  • White People: ....Ugh. I cant stand Black people. They're so lazy and dirty. All on welfare. They are disgusting.
  • Black People: ...............................
The Struggle Pt. 8
  • White people: (seeing animal abuse) Poor Animal. This is why I'm vegan. I cant stand the poor treatment of living beings.
  • White people: (seeing world suffering) OMG those poor people/orphans in developing countries. Lets adopt them all under the guise of 'not seeing color.'
  • White people: Oh man. All those homeless people out on the street. Let me donate money to some random charity that will profit from your donation in the end.
  • White people: Well Mike brown stole those cigars so he kinda had it coming. Black people are thugs. Who cares. Slavery wasnt that bad. Racism is over get over it.
  • The world: ............................

Do you think it would be inappropriate or offensive for a white person to wear that "racism isnt over but I'm over racism" shirt?

Find other ways to help without giving money to FCKH8.

It would be more productive if white people called other people out on their racist bullshit. From microaggressions to slurs, don’t let anything go. Use your white privilege for good.
