White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear."
The One With All The Jealousy
Derek’s not staring at Stiles. He’s not. It’s just — there’s a guy and he keeps putting his hands on Stiles; leaning in and touching the crook of Stiles’ elbow; laughing and clapping a hand on Stiles’ shoulder. The worst thing is that Stiles isn’t moving away. It’s like he’s enjoying it.
"Dude." Scott nudges Derek with his elbow and makes a face at him. "Why don’t you just talk to him?"
Letting out a long suffering sigh, Derek ignores Scott and takes a swig of his beer. The guy is still talking to Stiles, and now Stiles is smiling back at him. Flexing his hand, Derek shifts on the barstool, trying to stop his claws from coming out. ”I’m going home,” he says when he sees Stiles making his way over to them, dragging the guy with him.
Scientists Confirm Burning Fossil Fuels Significantly Worsens Australian Drought
American scientists have just confirmed that parts of Australia are being slowly parched because of greenhouse gas emissions, which means that the long-term decline in rainfall over south and south-west Australia is a consequence of fossil fuel burning and depletion of the ozone layer by human activity.

Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms? (x)
This is it, this is how I’m going to explain privilege to the next one.
THOSE LAST TWO GIF THOUGH. MALE FEMINISTS, PLEASE TAKE NOTE. I KNOW YOU DON’T WANNA BE SEXIST BUT PLEASE LISTEN TO WOMEN IF THEY TRY TO EXPLAIN HOW SOMETHING YOU SAID/DID IS PROBLEMATIC AND TAKE IT TO HEART, THANK YOU!
I agree with him. If you think I’m being sexist, let me know and I’ll work on it. I won’t get mad, promise.
honestly this mindset works for any kind of privilege - if someone from an oppressed group calls you out, don’t argue. Fix it.
Haha I’m glad you think it’s cool, even though I’m like mega unimaginative.
