who will think of the white people

I’m a slut for single parent AUs so please imagine:

Yuuri’s daughter is The Cutest Three Year Old Ever and people are literally constantly telling Yuuri this. Yuuri legit thinks it’s because his daughter is So Darn Cute (And really, she is) and doesn’t even notice people squinting feverishly at his hands looking for a wedding ring. He doesn’t know why so many people offer to help him with his groceries, but he thinks it might be because they feel bad for him.

He coaches kid classes at an ice skating rink. His daughter has known how to skate practically since she could walk. They like to go to free skates on the weekends because it gets them out of the house and in among people and Phichit has actually put up a white board in Yuuri’s house that says “It has been ____ days since my last adult interaction” and updates it daily just to shame Yuuri into talking to people who have actually graduated grade school.

It’s one of these weekends that, for some reason only God himself is privy to, Viktor Nikiforov is skating at this rink.

“Oh my God,” Yuuri says, stock still against the boards, clutching his daughter’s hand. 

“Ow, Papa,” she says mildly. She takes after Mari, somehow. A lot of people think she’s Mari’s daughter when they see them together. The world could be coming down around her ears and she would just look around and say this is no fun. 

“Oh my God,” Yuuri says again when Viktor Nikiforov starts skating towards them

“Your daughter is so cute!” says Viktor Nikiforov as he approaches, waving and smiling. Yuuri is dying. Every atom of Yuuri’s being is screaming. “Does she know how to skate?”

“No,” Yuuri says. “No she does not.”

“Can I give her a lesson?”

“Yes,” Yuuri says. “Yes, she would love that.” 

And that is how my father left me to be kidnapped by Viktor Nikiforov at age three, Hana Katsuki’s future blog post on this subject will read. But it’s all good because Viktor didn’t want to kidnap me, he just wanted to marry my dad. Which he did, two years later. Don’t ask me about the ceremony because all I remember is falling asleep on a pile of coats at the reception.

the real housewives of beverly hills going to China to protest the consumption of dog meat on the grounds of animal cruelty while they carry around $15,000 crocodile skin bags and wear fur and leather boots is the epitome of oblivious jaded rich white women and so hypocritical and racist like lol you don’t really care about the animals you just think it’s horrifying and barbaric because it’s Chinese people who are doing it shut up

To people saying Auston’s heritage doesn’t matter because he *looks* white

That’s a dumb argument. But setting that aside, him being Mexican, and being recognized as one, is important for so many more reasons outside of whatever privilige you think he got out of “looking white”. A Mexican kid somewhere in front of a tv is looking at Auston on screen doing amazing things, in awe, and is excitedly yelling out “I want to be just like him when I grow up!”. Someone somewhere is watching him play, and rejoicing that they sport that they enjoy watching finally has someone who comes from the same background they did. It is not irrelavant for people who identify with him and don’t you dare try to take that away from them.

Hi, i was curious about smth. Do you think skin color has something to do with stupidity? Bc your concerns about the human race are pretty reasonable but the people described sound just plain stupid and idk what them being white has got to do with it

Being white has to do with privilege. It took me a while to realize that I am privileged, but I understand now. And as I have been made extensively aware of some of my privileges, I have to shake my head at them.

White women, living privileged lives, who have never experienced shit. No poverty, no racism, and they all live in these great homes, and were lucky to have good families when growing up, and go to good schools. And one thing is, they are all fellow writers. And I like their stories, don’t get me wrong, but they only write fluffy and cute things. And their reasons are because they ‘don’t like to think about sad stuff’.

They ignore the problems going on in politics right now. They ignore the racism and sexism and assault and homeless. Some have blocked certain tags so they can avoid these things specifically. And while it’s fine if they want to remain ignorant, that’s their decision, I’m appalled at their behavior. One didn’t know about Brexit while it was happening. In her own country. Another knows nothing about the presidential election results despite living in the US.

Burning a book is literally the ‘worst thing’ to them. One woman broke down in tears and demanded to know the woman’s FB profile so she could go an attack her over ‘defiling a precious book’. They were all agreeing that it’s was a cruel thing to do to a book. Claimed it was the ‘worst thing they had ever seen’!

A book. 30+ year old women losing their shit over a book.

And it shows the privilege they grew up in when they can wax poetically on how ‘abusive’ it is to turn an unwanted book into something more interesting. And when I called them out about how if it was on a serial killer’s plans to commit genocide or something, they wouldn’t be defending the book, the excuse I got was, ‘still, someone put effort into it’ and it’s ‘disrespectful and should be considered illegal’.

Frankly, the privilege was all over that bullshit and I’m disappointed. And I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced this, but racism is rampant everywhere. All kinds of people hating others for their race or perceived race. So when I see a white person do something fucking stupid or selfish or just bad in general, I’m just like, ‘WHY DO THEY HAVE TO BE WHITE?!’. Like go ahead and give people more of a reason to hate or pity us why don’t you? It’s a fucking shame and literally it cannot be helped. It’s a reaction that I and people of any race, can and will have from time to time.

And I find myself mortified when I see another article about some white boy shooting up a school. Like, great job you useless douche nozzle. 

It’s gross to see how ignorant some people really are, and their privilege and the safety that comes with it, makes them want to stay ignorant.

Anyway, being white doesn’t make them stupid. In fact, some of them are pretty brilliant. But they have helped render themselves pathetically inept in important areas of life all because of their ignorance that came from ingrained privilege and a lack of need in anything.

Yeah, I’m so effin worried for the world when privilege keeps people cozy and warm in the dark. And when the shit goes to hell, the rude awakening could be fatal.

I agree with you about Octavia, I don't really like her but I don't think she's like this because she herself is racist. But I don't think the people who think she's racist are prejudice or biased towards POC. They just have a different perspective on it. My friend thinks she's racist because she's hit POC characters, and my friend has nothing against white people.

That’s absolutely true. And I understand that. 

But might it perhaps be that they are also not recognizing that in a mixed race family or interracial relationships, those actions are not ACTUALLY motivated by racism, but by the interpersonal relationships and the personal trauma or abuse or arguments or whatever. Exactly like it is in a family where everyone is the same color. 

Saying a white person who hits her POC brother is racist simply for being white/POC is saying the family is less REAL because they are different races. 

Sure. That’s their perspective. Because their understanding of race is between people who are not related. 

The dynamic of race is different in general society than it is within a family.

ghoulvoided replied to your post: the context for tht tribal tattoo post is cause if…

I live in NZ and I’m honestly so glad that I haven’t met any white people with proper tribal tattoos. My ex had some tribal styled ones (Pokemon designs & his starsign) and that’s iffy enough as it is :/ I was actually talking to one of my friend’s who’s Maori the other day and we had a huge discussion about cultural appropriation wrt Maori/Islander culture and tradition etc

yeah its….eck. im glad nowhere i live, especially now in hawaii, i havent seen any white people personally with tribal tattoos which is a blessing. people dont realize it but tattoos have always been an integral part of islander culture and like….those patterns actually mean things….they have actual stories but everyone else just thinks its some cool print to wear as an accessory when its not

anonymous asked:

What is your opinion? Keith is white? because i don't find any oficial proof what he is asian or because its "anime" and who have black hair and sword automatically asian? fun fackt! if we compare Keith and Pidge on joint screenshots we can see what color skin Pidge is more yellow (asian) than Keiths)) Sorry for me bad english.

Don’t worry, your English is just fine! 

I think this is something that’s pretty up in the air right now for VLD. The Asian last name that people often attribute to him, “Kogane”, was just a carryover from the older Voltron series, DotU, and Voltron Force. But just like how McClain (Lance’s last name from DotU and Voltron Force) doesn’t necessarily carry over to VLD (especially considering that Lance is canonically Cuban in VLD), “Kogane” may not carry over either. 

Honestly, it seems less likely that “Kogane” will carry over too since Keith is canonically an orphan in VLD, and so far we’ve only seen his father (and still don’t know his name). 

As far as his ethnicity is concerned - again, we really just don’t know. He’s certainly paler in skin than Shiro (and Pidge, like you said), but that doesn’t necessarily discount him being Asian. Nor does it discount him being white, either. 

I’m of the mind that this might not be something that gets addressed in VLD since we’re instead dealing with the fact that he’s part Galra. Him being part alien is going to probably get WAY more attention in the series than whatever his human ethnicity is. 

Those are just my thoughts! But as far as the canon is concerned, we just don’t know either way. All we know for sure is that he’s got some Galran ancestry. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
