Hats off to both. I look forward to seeing what happens

And watch how the media won’t give them any praise whatsoever despite them trying to create jobs for people

they don’t need The Media praise for the things they do though; i trust them more without it

two stories about our household fish tank:


after years of knowing kyle’s beloved upside-down huge-puff eyed fish,
of whom i posted a picture months(?) back
with the joke about us not noticing when she really does die

I noticed that she was on her side (within a week of posting that)
and that she was dead
and that kyle, who loved her, was actually trying to ignore the fact,
(and I felt bad)

buuuut


the other week at the dinner table, I was telling my housemates about the romantic pictures of snails i’ve seen, and Renae told us that she watched a video of snails having sex for work and it sounded ridiculous.
well my sister-in-law posted a link to More romantic snail pictures the other day, and I mentioned it at the breakfast table, and Kyle said proudly that his snails had babies, and there are all these baby snails scattered around the tank and it is crazy

the moral of these stories is this:
be careful what you talk about in front of your aquatic friends

That’s racist, Brenda.

after receiving five new messages upon waking, including a “you have no idea who i am or who i’m friends with”, i decided to try once more -

me: this does not have to do with who’s friends with who, i see this shit on my newsfeed, i may not know you but that doesn’t mean this doesn’t involve me. that doesn’t mean that your kind of idealism doesn’t affect others. and i seriously cannot navigate through fb without running into the arrogant spittle of racially ignorant people. you may not consider yourself a racist no, but this society is white supremist in its structure and its presence, and you are withholding it in your ignorance, i don’t know the inner workings of who you are, but i read what you wrote and i see you are still whining over the fact that you can’t do a thing that is oppressive, hurtful, and angering to countless human beings because you are white, you are throwing words back and forth in a repetitive manner but you are not choosing to listen or to understand - all you hear is “i can’t do this because i am white”, and that obviously bothers you. you are trying to act like race shouldn’t matter in this, when it is what shapes our entire society and if you want to combat That, fighting for the rights of white people to say “nigger” is completely and entirely the wrong place to start.

him: So, because I was accidentally born a certain skin color, I’m told I’m not supposed to say a certain word. That’s racist, Brenda. That’s doing to white people what white people did to black people. You really think the answer to racism is more racism? I’m not responsible for the discrimination felt by black people in this country, and I’m baffled that you just lump me in with every other white person who ever lived. You ask me to not be racist while you can be racist towards me.
That makes sense? That’s logical? That’s the answer you want to go with? Because I still don’t get it. Explain to me how you’re not answering racism with more racism.






Cue the Aamer Rahman -Reverse Racism video!

because I’m done

These are foolish posts I know. but this is myspace today, and i’m just done
Like accidentally born a certain skin color done
When a friend posted an article on fb about why white people shouldn’t say “nigger”, and one of his white friends just Had to play devil’s advocate in one of the most snide and disrespectful ways, I couldn’t help but message an angry reply. I know it’s dumb for me to give these people the time of day, but Sometimes I’m just a fight :

me: what the fucking hell, what is wrong with you? “playing devil’s advocate”. why can you not Just Accept the fact that that is off-limits for you, it’s not even just the word, it’s the idea that you feel so entitled to Everything. with your psuedo-intellectual bullshit. Seriously
him: Sorry you feel that way. As a white guy, it’s a shame I’m never even allowed to talk about this subject without people jumping on my back. Why is an idea so off limits that I can’t even talk about it?


me: again with the “I’m not allowed to” shit- i’m not feeling an ounce of sympathy for that, kid. what are you trying to do with this? what does it profit anyone for you to put forth your “devil’s-advocate”, entitlement-ridden two cents? who are you fighting and for what purpose? what circumstance do you think it’s appropriate for a white person or any person (who has not had the term violently and harmfully directed at them) to say “nigger”, why is this important to you? and why do you think you understand this better than we do?
him: Because there’s absolutely no justification to limit one group’s freedom based on the color of their skin. I’m not allowed to say a certain word purely because I was not white. I didn’t ask to be white, I didn’t plan on it. But because of an accident, I’m told that I’m not allowed to say a certain word? Seriously? How do you justify that?
I was born* white

me: How do I justify that.. So you’re interested in Justice now?

because you were born white you can’t say a word. think about that. you can’t say A Word because you are white. You’re Not Allowed To Say A Word Because You’re White. repeat that to yourself for the next two weeks please. while simultaneously educating yourself on the many injustices in black history and black present as told by black people,
If you can do that, I might be convinced that this actually matters an ounce to to you.
if you could do that, maybe i’d take the time to further discuss this with you.
but right now you are just another white boy obnoxiously trying to school multiple black men on the “text-book” history of oppressive words

another white boy that cringes at the idea of not being Allowed something

and you need to get over yourself


him: That’s what I can’t understand. Why can’t I say a certain word because I happened to be born a certain way? Why??? That’s what I’ve been asking, and no one has been answering.



how is this still even a discussion. is saying a word the worst thing in the world, no. in fact, acting like a word is the height of racism is probably more harmful than actually saying the word itself. but the fact that people want this so badly is sick to me. My first boyfriend asked me if dating me meant he could say “nigger”, and i’m just like “Oh yeah, cause my saying it so often is rubbing off on you?!” (like i don’t say it except in response to white people wanting to be justified in doing so) like WHY
. people can be so gross sometimes
