Reminder of: reason for eggplant’s name
OH MY GOD I HAVE WONDERED ABOUT THIS MY WHOLE LIFE
I will never, ever, ever understand people who think being white is something to be proud of. Like you, I understand taking an interest in your heritage, but “white” is not a heritage. The assertion that it is a heritage unto itself (and not one’s actual heritage, like being of German or Swedish or French descent) is something that won’t ever compute for me.
And I say that as a white woman in America. I understand that I have privilege. It took me a while to get it— I was never racist but there were (and I’m sure still are) things I didn’t understand about being a person of color in the US. It took education to recognize the reality of my life experience versus that of a person of color. Now I see it, recognize it, more and more. It’s there. It’s gross. It’s a systemic problem in our society, and it is not about how one person treats another in one situation.
Anyway, I found this graphic and I thought it might be helpful in your conversations with people who don’t understand the difference between racism and prejudice (and, y’know, people just being assholes).
Racism can be against anyone of any race. You can be proud to be any color. Yes racism is a problem, but it can be against anyone of any color.
congratulations you literally ignored the entire post so you could comment with your stupid opinion
You’re an idiot. Saying “White” is the same as saying “African American” or “black” or “Asian” or “Latino”. There are so many fucking countries no one represents when they say this. They don’t say “Oh he’s Zimbabwean” or “Oh she’s Mongolian” or “Look at the half Peruvian half Columbian”.
People base these color coded terms on the color of skin, because someone who’s white can actually be from Africa. Color is skin deep and obvious. Heritage? Not so much.
hmm well if it’s a fresh penis I suppose I’d have to at least store it in the fridge to maintain freshness
