Beyond Ferguson, the pattern is clear. Blacks are always to blame, even as we are brutalized by police, ghettoized by neoliberal policies, and disenfranchised by a racist criminal (in)justice system.
But that’s the crux of white supremacist racial logic: the problem with black people is … well, black people – not mass incarceration and the deindustrialization of urban America, not educational inequality and generational poverty, not 400 years of slavery, lynchings, and Jim Crow. To be black in America is to be victimized and then made responsible for our victimization. We built this country. But, apparently, it is we who are lazy and dependent. We are bullied politically, socially and economically. But it is we who are called ‘thugs.’
I don’t wanna be an old ass cracker anyway. Bye honky. I’m fine with being black and not a white ass pasty European :D
We don’t want to be European, it’s always been white people forcing euro centric beauty standards on us. I need white people to wisen up and stop projecting their bullshit onto us.
Then why do you people say there are poc Europeans? And you get so offended when we say, there are no poc Europeans. You guys are immigrants in Europe and nothing more in the eyes of native Europeans.Oh yeah? Explain Mesopotamia, explain the Moors, explain how cultural diffusion through trade routes from the Silk Road through Transatlantic Slavery through WWII has contributed to the European economy and thusly European culture and society. A delusional white washed romanticized version of what you wish Europe was does not make it reality. There’s several blogs dedicated to the POC presence in Europe, shout out tomedievalpocfor example. Both tribal and industrialized Europe has been a site of black, brown, and yellow civilization. The hem of the Queen’s gown has black blood on it and you’re just mad that global colonialism has come home to roost.
