Exactly what I’ve experienced around white people who don’t know I have a black grandparent… I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch shirt disturbing what people say when they think no one hears and then the “friendly” face they put on in public.

Everyone has bias to some degree about someone or something- the difference is not wanting to deny other people human rights because of that bias. I’ve heard so many people say “I’m not a racist, sexist, or homophobic but those gays, women blacks can’t do that” that’s where you cross the line distinctly. I’ve never thought a word to be racist. What’s racist to me, is the fact that some skin colors can say things that others can’t. Not even that’d I’d ever want to use these words… I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch shirt But for it to only be okay because of your skin color….is racist. Doesn’t matter what the reason or excuse is…. Not to mention the webster definition of racism ” a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race” isn’t just being prejudice or stereotypical. Being racist means you believe one race is actually better than the other.
Get it and have fun
I was stationed in Hawaii. You wouldn’t believe the racism towards white people there. Not what they put in brochures…. It might not equate to what the ancestors of today’s African Americans went through, but it is alive and well for everyone. And it is disgusting… Not to mention a couple people at work only seem to hold doors and greet people of their own race and just walk right by others. From all sides. Crazy…. And sad. No, it is not. An oppressed group can take a racial slur and appropriate it for themselves and help take away its power. That in no way makes the word less racist when used by an outsider.
