WHITE TWITTER GOES NUTS OVER BOMANI JONES SLIGHTLY ALTERED T-SHIRT

ACCEPTABLE WHITE BOY CHIC

This is being sold all over the internet right now
....just like it has been for decades now




SAME THEME DIFFERENT TARGET,

WORN BY BOMANI JONES ON ESPN

ALL OF A SUDDEN
A BUNCH OF WHITE FOLK
SEE
AND UNDERSTAND


Mocking another group
Being racially targeted
Stereotyping

What is and is not political correctness

You'd think that this Caucasians t-shirt would remove the sawdust and hayseeds from their eyes and allow them to see how this t-shirt also mocks a racial-racial other, targets a racial other, and that criticism of this t-shirt is not about poltiical correctness. 

BUT NOOO


THIS SHIRT IS STILL
OKAY
GOOD OLE WHITE BOY CHIC


But the shirt blow?
White twitter has spoken and
"That's racist" 

It's like there is some sort of special sorcery blocking white people's vision when it comes to mocking racial others for fun. It's like they think it's their right to stereotype and mock racial others and it is ONLY their right to do so.
Well, I guess it's not sorcery. It's just that the only race-based negativity that matters to many white people is the race-based negativity that's aimed at white people.  

How else can you see both of these t-shirts and only understand how ONE of them is communicating in stereotypes?
 

From Love Life Of An Asian Guy

"What we have here, this is the same thing that goes on with the logo for the Cleveland Indians, right? So, to have a problem with the logo of this, would be to have a problem with the Indians, but if you’re quiet about the Indians, and you got something to say about my shirt, I think it’s time for introspection. I think that’s a fair thing to ask."
Like a BDSM version of Pavlov's dog who responds to the sound of a leather whip cracking on a plump booty, whypipo on Twitter had an instant, collective meltdown.
    "Well, what if I wore a shirt that said NEGRO with a Black man on it?!"
     "THIS IS RACISTTT!"
Now, here's what I noticed: these Y-people can understand the "offensiveness" of Bomani's 'Caucasian' shirt but will also deny any issue with other racist teams (Cleveland Indians, Washington Redskins, Chicago Blackhawks.)

Racism is one part ignorance. But a lot of its other parts are pure b.s. and rational as hell. This ignorance is willful. Believing that this mess is even 50% ignorance, believing that explaining racism will cure MOST racism, is like walking around expecting that all the billing errors that you will ever experience in your life will fall in your favor instead of the company's.
