@Are0h Every time a racist says "get over it," I hear them saying "I am malignant and superstitious and think that only white people's pain matters, I am too emotionally incompetent to participate in a humane civilization." I guess they think they're gaslighting us, but they're really just telling us exactly what they are. I used to get tired but now I get embarrassed for them.
@ash Yeah. It's like racism is so pedestrian now, it barely registers. I just kind of laugh when people come at me like that on here.
If it wasn't for the extreme violence they continue to use, they would have been completely irrelevant a long time ago.
@Are0h 💯 I'll never understand how they think their extreme violence is valid just because it involves paperwork, weird blue outfits with made-up badges, and vocabulary designed to imitate respectability. The trauma-factory they call the "criminal justice system" operates without the consent of black and brown people, but their cars are painted in a weird stripey pattern so they're allowed to beat and enslave people? Lol.
@ash It's very odd when you think about it, especially when you consider the origin of policing in the States had nothing to do with law enforcement.
Yeah, they've made it prettier, but their original purpose still hasn't changed.
It's funny to me how they get upset when you just call it what it is and not pretend with them.
re: violence ment Show more
@ash I've always believed it's just what they are taught.
We'll never understand it fully because we don't come from cultures where the priority is to hate everyone that isn't like you.
The delusion, the disconnection from reason, the comfortability with excessive violence, etc. All are culture markers of whiteness. It's what the celebrate. It's not an accident we went from Obama to another racist.
That entire culture is about justifying irrational hate.
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
