White person visits Chinese grocery store -> How can I make this about black people?

Additional context:

I’m Korean but the girl who made the post is Chinese-American.

When someone called out on her she commented that dreads are an act of anti-black racism, then went on to unfriend the other person lmao

Also, from TiA

Huh. How odd, I could’ve sworn the family that owns the Asian market I frequent, were happy to have my money. If not, maybe they should stop recommending stuff for me to try.

Dear White people,

actually…

Dear non-Mexicans,

Okay so, tomorrow is May 5th or Cinco de Mayo, if you’re that type of person. 

And contrary to popular belief, it is not Mexico’s Independence day. That day is September 16th (celebrated on the 15th). So if you believe you are celebrating Mexico’s independence, then you are wrong.

Also, if you wear a sombrero and dress in “typical’ Mexican fashion, then you are being racist. And if you use this day as an excuse to get wasted on tequila then you’re just gross and have reduced a pretty significant day in Mexican history to a day where you eat tacos and get bombed on margaritas.

Also, Cinco de Mayo isn’t really celebrated nationwide in Mexico. It’s mostly celebrated in Puebla. Because Cinco de Mayo is also know as “La Batalla de Puebla” or “The Battle of Puebla” where the Mexican army won, despite the odds, against the French army during the French intervention in Mexico.

Now, I need you to remember that because it is important. To me, since Puebla is where my mother was born. To my people. And to my culture. 

Cinco de Mayo is not yours to celebrate. It is not your excuse to get drunk on what will be a Thursday.

Now, despite that being said, I don’t mind if you celebrate Cinco de Mayo so long as you know it’s significance and you don’t reduce the day to gross stereotypes.

Respect the culture and Mexicans will invite you over for a cook out and a good conversation. We are not what you see on tv. We are a diverse people who love our culture and don’t mind sharing as long as there is respect.

Respect Cinco de Mayo and Enjoy Cinco de Mayo.

So, I just wrote that big thing on ‘progressive’ white America’s modern view of the chattel slavery of African Americans, and I have deiced, on behalf of all white people, we need to stop lying to each other. Teachers, tour guides, even just random people, when they get asked “Was Master X nice to his slaves” or “But most slaves were treated well, right?” Need to uniformly answer “No.” 

No owner ever treated a slave well. Not George Washington, Not Thomas Jefferson, not your potential ancestors, not the nice family you heard about on vacation last year. To own another human being is to not treat them well.

We have to stop lying to kids (and each other) and saying that there is a humane way to strip another human being of there right to self, to take a person and create a marketable commodity . 

White Americans still benefit from the legacy of slavery, and Black American’s still suffer from it. We need to stop teaching it as an ancient quirk that left few scars because everyone was more or less happy. 

It wasn’t symbiotic, it was parasitic, and we need to stop saying otherwise.

What happens when MAC posts a photo of a beautiful black woman’s NATURAL lips on Instagram

Yet all those people commenting rude things would probably go get lip injections to get them like that. If only people loved black people as much as they loved black culture. The irony…

  • White ppl:if u just comply with the cops u won't have to worry about getting shot.
  • Me:Shows them the video of Charles Kinsey (a black male, laying down on the ground with his hands in the air, stating that he nor his autistic patient are weaponized) getting shot.
  • White ppl:Umm . . . well . . . his hands aren't perfectly straight up in the air . . . the police couldn't have been sure obviously . . . why are u making everything a race issue?!
