“Americans have no idea what to do about racism. But “racists”? We can handle those.
Racists are loud and obvious. Racists can’t hide; they trip and reveal themselves. Their emails leak. Videos of them circulate. Racists lose jobs and favor, because racists have bosses, and bosses know the best way to show they’re not racist is to point at racists and say, “That’s the bad guy.”
Racism is a different matter entirely. Racism doesn’t pop up in bold letters, or in outraged headlines on cable news. Racism doesn’t have a boss. To find it, you have to look past the racists, beyond the ranting bigots and their stomach-churning words. Racism thrives in systems and practices. Racism is hard at work in America, whether people see it clearly or not.”
The fact that only two students were expelled over the racist chanting of a fraternity previously responsible for the death of a 19 year old black student, despite the fact that there were clearly many others participating, just shows these people don’t care about racism within their community. They’re not committed to race equality. It’s about damage control. It’s about image.
These are all the yik yak’s at John Hopkin’s University. That school is full of prestigious assholes who are predominantly white or asian. Yaw wanna spout some shit online, but you wouldn’t dare say it to a black persons face or you would be catching some hands an then some.
Fuck John Hopkins University and fuck the racists fucks that live there. Think about it yaw, these are our future doctors and shit.
Do I think Dylann Roof is mentally ill? No. I think he’s an ignorant fucked up racist who made his choice. He planned his attack and knew what he was doing. I don’t see racism as a mental illness. Why would I discredit all the people who actually do suffer from some type of mental illness? I honestly don’t even want to hear it.
i don’t know what’s more scary, finding out how many people i know are actually racist, or seeing how many of them completely deny that racism exists simply because they are not the ones who suffer because of it.
