So’s you can go the back of the bus…
That’s what’s all the rage, now. It’s great to be the victim of racism. The racists…they’re everywhere. Don’t miss out. Be a victim today.
Those aspects of society that overtly and covertly
attribute value and normality to white people and Whiteness, and
devalue, stereotype, and label people of color as
“other”, different, less than, or render them
invisible. Examples of these norms include defining white skin
tones as nude or flesh colored, having a future time orientation,
emphasizing individualism as opposed to a more collective ideology,
defining one form of English as standard, and identifying only
Whites as great writers or composers.
Well, it’s been blogged all over the place, so I’m not sure who’d I’d give credit to. Call a nude white person nude: your a racist. Claim your individuality: racist. Plan your future: racist. Call proper English proper: racist. Mention a good writer or composer who happens to be white, while not also mentioning one who happens to be black, brown, red, or yellow: racist.
My god. What it must take to bend a human mind around to the point where it ‘works’ like this.
