Carefully notice the lack of logical thinking here. She’s not even following the line of questioning.

When privilege is in question, no matter how ignorant or intelligent a person is, they tend to retreat to illogical arguments that are easily refuted and they kinda resemble toddlers, except I actually like toddlers and toddlers make more sense.

And honestly, many White women would not tolerate such ridiculous arguments, lack of empathy and self-centeredness ("why bring up race if it’s not a problem for you?") if the question was gender and a White man posed this foolishness to them. They wouldn’t tolerate it. They would easily expose the ignorance. But magically when privilege (in this case White privilege) is in question, all bets are off.

The last GIF explains my life in so many ways… *rolls eyes*

The weirdest thing is that though this is from a satirical show (The Daily Show) and meant to discuss racism with humor, these are the real answers that most Whites give daily, so I couldn’t really laugh this time. I just felt tired.

the perils of trying to communicate this to white people in debates. in the many debates I’ve had the chance of witnessing, race comes up about 80% of the time, when discussing this in a diverse setting. and for whites, sometimes their mindset is ‘oh, why are they pulling the race card.’ but for blacks it’s, ‘understand that purely based off of what I look like, I will experience something totally different, give me the chance to explain.’

this always makes me cringe

The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.  @KrystVegaNeteru

This is beautiful.

I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.

I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it

Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best books; live with the mighty; but learn to be happy alone.

The very fact that you have to refer to the black man in America as a Negro shows you that right there something is wrong. An African doesn’t accept this term Negro and you find they teach us in the educational system of this country that Negro is a Spanish word that’s supposed to mean black, yet when you find the black people who live in Spanish-speaking countries of South and Central America, they don’t accept the word Negro to identify themselves. No one allows himself to be classified under word Negro but the black man here in America who is a descendant of the slaves and very seldom is it ever applied to anybody but the black man here in America who is the descendant of the slaves.

When you ask a man his identity he should use a word that connects him with a culture. If you ask him his nationality, it should connect him with a nation, like if I ask a man his nationality and he says German that connects him with Germany or even if he says German-American it still connects him with having originated, his family his history has originated in Germany. If he says he’s French-American, it connects him with France, but when you ask a black man in America and he tells you Negro, he doesn’t put any other country in front, he puts American Negro, or he’ll just say Negro. This doesn’t identify him and usually when you find a man who calls himself a Negro, he can’t tell you what language that he spoke before he came to this country, it’s of no consequence, no interest. He believes that prior to coming here he was a savage in the jungle and therefore he had no language and this justifies his lack of knowledge concerning that mother today, and the history as Mr. Baldwin pointed out, of the white man here in America and the black man here in America points out the fact that the Negro or the man who calls himself a Negro is just an ex-slave. If he is an ex-slave, I’d rather say he’s still a slave than but he’s wearing his slave master’s name, the name that was given to him during slavery, he’s speaking the language of the man who made him a slave, because he has no knowledge of his own tongue, he only knows the history, his own history as taught to him by his former slave master who purposely hid from him his own history to make him think that he was an inferior being before being brought here.

If all the white people who claim they don’t hate us would ever get together and do something to the whites who claim they hate us, we’d see some action. Talk is cheap, if white people didn’t want to have a South African situation … there’d be none. If white people in America didn’t want segregation, there’d be none … it is the man who allows him to lynch who is never seen.

1. If you don’t like the way he kisses you, you won’t like the way he fucks you. Get up and leave.

2. If he won’t go down on you, but expects you to go down on him, laugh. Get up and leave.

3. If you don’t want to do something and he doesn’t respect that, slap him round the face. Get up and leave.

4. If he isn’t okay with the imperfections on your skin, if he says they turn him off, get up and leave.

5. If you don’t want to shave your legs and he thinks that’s disgusting and refuses to touch them, get up and leave.

6. If he doesn’t see your body as a masterpiece, as a complete work of art, get up and leave.

7. If he makes you feel uncomfortable about any part of your body, get up and leave.
