GOOD OLE WHITE BOY CHIC
White twitter has spoken and
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.
