wow look at this
does it say anything about caucasian people not being a race?
because im p sure caucasian is a race! who knew. apparently caucasians aren’t a race and can’t be discriminated against
all the dictionaries gotta be rewritten
put a little star there saying ‘* you cant be caucasian because caucasian people can’t be discriminated against’
you are implying that people of colour - who are only different to caucasians because of different skeletal structure and skin colour, NOT MENTALLY, MEANING THAT THEY ARE STILL HUMAN AND CAN IN FACT SAY RACIST THINGS TOWARDS CAUCASIAN PEOPLE - every single one of them, don’t EVER say something discriminating against caucasians. wow. that’s QUITE a generality.
news flash! wow, thank you anon! now i know that because I’M WHITE I’m not part of a race therefore i am not a HUMAN.
whew. i learnt something today.
white people can experience discrimination but the effects of said discrimination are nothing compared to the actual systematic opression of pocs
Well, ok, I’m gonna be the prick here. Or not a prick, depending upon your opinion. There are lots of different races inside of being white. Like, russian, irish, polish, jewish (sorta, that’s a bit more confusing), gypsy (i believe this counts, as well??) etc. unless those don’t count as races (correct me if i’m wrong here), they can consist of white people, as well. so, yes, there is racism for white people. and, plot twist, it CAN be as bad as POC racism. Like, hello, holocaust. as well as that, there is A LOT of Irish racism (altho i cannot remember the exact name of what occurred, sorry. long day.) But yeah. It /can/ be as bad a POC racism. Maybe the oppression was worse in the past, yes, perhaps, but the racism can be really bad depending on who you’re around and where you live.
Alright, I don’t want to join this debate on either side because this is a really touchy subject and I don’t want to talk about something that I know nothing about, but I’d like to comment on the above poster’s point and clarify that not all Jewish people have light skin. Even though “Jewish” is an ethnicity, not all people of that ethnicity have the same skin color/ancestry/etc. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that “Jewish” is a subset of “white”, or that anti-semitism is the same thing as “racism against white people”.
The whole idea of Jewish people as a race is really confusing. Because I am 100% jewish, both mom and dad, ancestors jewish, etc. But I’m mega pale, while my sister is olive-y. It’s hard to decide, honestly. But there is racism. Obvs.
what if you woke up christmas morning and your favorite character or celebrity was just casually sitting by the christmas tree with a bow on their head and was just like “oh good you’re finally awake”
*Rapidly tries to make hair look decent*
but then they were all “no your hair looks fine” and they laughed
and then after a long somewhat awkward amount of silence they were just like
"i like your pajamas"
i would cry
THIS IS THE ONE GIF SET I HAVE WAITED MY ENTIRE LIFE FOR
