"For the white man to ask the black man if he hates him is just like the rapist asking the raped, or the wolf asking the sheep, ‘Do you hate me?’ The white man is in no moral position to accuse anyone else of hate! Why, when all of my ancestors are snake-bitten, and I’m snake-bitten, and I warn my children to avoid snakes, what does that snake sound like accusing me of hate-teaching?"

"The cultures of people of color are either packaged for consumption or called upon to fill cultural and spiritual voids of Eurocentrism."

That shit blew my mind and made understanding cultural appropriation way clearer for me.

Would I be wrong in assuming that your end game for white people is to have no sense of dignity or pride, and to put themselves last before every other race? For people to say whatever they want about them, and for them to not be able to even defend themselves? If so, isn't that vastly hypocritical, and also perpetuating a racial divide between white people and every other race? Do you at least have any concept of giving incentive for the oppressors not to oppress?


Jesus christ, this exact kind of shit is why this site isn’t a dialogue with racists. It’s a classic right-wing trick (creationists do this all the time), wherein they start with their first incorrect premise, continue talking as if their first lie wasn’t something completely fucking ludicrous, and then act like you need to engage their entire blowhard “argument.”

So, nice try, asshole, sort of, but unfortunately, if you’re fucking stupid enough to believe that asking racists to stop murdering unarmed black people on the street, and then using all the levers of power in the city, county and state to cover it up the crime and silence dissent (for instance) is equivalent to “people to say whatever they want about them”, you’re just too much of a racist piece of shit to deal with.

PS. “Do you at least have any concept of giving incentive for the oppressors not to oppress?” - waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, why won’t someone reward me for not being a racist piece of human garbage. waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

PPS. Seriously, fuck you for being racist, and fuck you for bringing this weak-ass tactic, stupid.
