Look I’m a white person
I use a credit card

So racism against asians, blacks, hispanics and others is horrible and should stop, but racism against white people are okay?
In that case, get the fuck back to my rice fields.

Comments on the trailer of the new Annie movie staring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx.

Would you just look at how racism isn’t a thing anymore in today’s society.

Every day, just a little more…
Smh.

smh white people are insane

Seriously bruh

"Racism is dead and black people should just get over it."

If white people don’t disappoint you on a regular basis, you are not paying attention….

"Catwoman" Annie? When Eartha Kitt is the iconic Catwoman from the 1960s? SMDH.

That second comment needs it’s own post…

A Racist Turn in India

dynamicafrica:

If you want to know what’s going on concerning the latest news headlines of the racism against Africans happening in India, this op-ed from the NYTimes will put a lot of it into perspective.

NEW DELHI — The Africans — Nigerians, Ghanaians, Ugandans — began leaving my neighborhood in New Delhi around December. Each week, more and more families exited. Some went to parts of Delhi considered more accepting of Africans; others to areas where the residents were thought to be less interfering in general. I have heard that some of the Ghanaian families had gone back to Africa, but I don’t know that for sure.

For years, they had been a part of the swirl of cultures, languages and races that makes up this part of the capital. The Nigerian women in their bright dresses out for evening strolls and the Cameroonian family with the curious-eyed baby at the ice-cream van had made a life for themselves alongside the Afghans, Tamils and Iranians.

On Oct. 31, about a month before the departures started, a Nigerian national, rumored to have been in the drug trade, was found dead in Goa. Nigerians in the coastal state protested his murder as an act of racism, while posters read: “We want peace in Goa. Say no to Nigerians. Say no to drugs.” One state minister threatened to throw out Nigerians living illegally. Another equated them with a cancer. He later apologized, adding that he hadn’t imagined there would be a “problem” with his statement.

The controversy has reverberated across the country, including in Delhi, 1,200 miles away, where the tolerance of African neighbors has turned into suspicion and even hostility.

One night, a police constable rang my doorbell. “Have you seen any man from the Congo entering and leaving the building?” he asked. “African man,” he clarified. He said he had received a report that a local resident was friendly with Africans, and he wanted to know, was this true? The question surprised me; neighborhood battles here are waged over water and parking spaces, not over ethnicity. Now neighbors had become nervous of neighbors.

Once the African communities had been singled out, complaints against them bubbled up like filthy water, in Jangpura, in Khirki Extension, in the alleyways off Paharganj, anywhere in Delhi they lived.

The fragile hospitality gave way to a familiar litany of intolerance: They were too loud, exuberant and dirty; the women were loose, the men looked you directly in the eye, they were drug takers and traffickers, and worse.

Residents of Khirki Extension, whose rambling lanes had seen an influx of artists, journalists and migrants, conducted their own investigation of their African neighbors, which they called the “black beauty” sting.

Coinciding with the city’s darkening mood, the newly elected Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi started a wave of cleanups as part of its mission to control “lawlessness.” The city’s law minister, Somnath Bharti, led a raid into Khirki Extension, claiming to be acting on residents’ complaints that Nigerians and Ugandans were involved in prostitution and drug trafficking. Media reports suggest that on the night of Jan. 15, he entered Africans’ homes with a group of vigilantes, without a warrant. In the fracas, a Ugandan woman was allegedly forced to give a urine sample, on the street, in the middle of the crowd. After she filed a complaint, Delhi’s court ordered the Police Department to pursue her case against Mr. Bharti.

These recent events have awakened dormant prejudices against Africans in India, aggravated by our tendency to prize fair skin over dark. “Habshi,” derived from the word “Abyssinian,” has become a common epithet for people of African descent.

So, on one hand, the racist turn in Delhi and Goa is unsurprising. On the other hand, we have a long, and neglected, history of cross-migration with Africa. While Indians have been settling on that continent since at least the 15th century, African roots in India run even deeper. Africans were brought over in numbers around the 13th century as slaves, but also as generals, guards, merchants, bodyguards and craftsmen. Many never went back. Now tens of thousands are here to study, and others work as chefs and in the garment and textile businesses, among other industries.

Despite our close ties and the shared history of colonialism, Africa doesn’t figure on the Indian map of curiosity and desire. Our admiration of China’s economic prowess is commonplace and unabashed; we are obsessed with the West, in terms of education, ideals of beauty and economic might. But Africa is invisible. Racist views can be spouted without consequence. Africa simply doesn’t matter.

There will be few repercussions for the Aam Aadmi Party if it continues with blanket policies against Africans. The party won on the promise of change, yet here it is, proving that it shares the same blindness as other, older parties.

These days, the Afghans and Indians stroll in my neighborhood park, enjoying the winter breeze. The Ghanaian and Cameroonian families moved away when their landlords doubled the rent only for them; the young Nigerian women left after one police visit too many.

Delhi’s residents say that the city belongs to everybody, because it belongs to nobody. As Bangalore and Mumbai became insular possessions, with political parties often driving out anyone who was from elsewhere, the capital claimed that it had room for all kinds of migrants, expats and outsiders. If the Aam Aadmi Party continues the divisiveness that older parties have excelled at, we’ll soon find reasons to go after all the people who live differently from “us,” who don’t belong here, who should go back to the places they came from.

I am studying to become a teacher. I am black and I have natural  hair. One of my colleagues found it necessary  to pull me aside and inform me that “my current hair situation” just was not professional enough for me to go out to schools on teaching practice and she was surprised my lecturer hadn’t spoken to me about it. She reccommended that I “invest” in whatever the other black girls used  because “I was smart enough to take steps to better myself and I’m too pretty for that anyway.” Made me confused, angry.

The cause of racism is often fear of the unknown - lack of knowledge about other cultures. Travel, explore and learn - open your mind.

I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, reblog this every time it comes up on my blog. This is the BEST statement, I’ve ever seen. 

I really love this. So many are dead-set on the view that people cannot better themselves but that simply isn’t true. Everybody deserves a second chance and everybody has the ability to better themselves. 

i… really hate this lol

becoming a white liberal doesn’t absolve you of racism

This mindset is so toxic and banal. White people grow up getting taught that racism is caused by the fear of the unknown, when y’all out here summoning spirits and having adventures in the woods, so it’s not fear. Nobody else gets away with that reasoning. If there’s a crime committed by a POC and a white person is the victim, nobody will say it was fear of the unknown. It’ll just be a savage, uncivilized brown person living up to their stereotypes. Racism is caused by the fact that white folks vampire ancestors decided that because they easily burn in the sun that they’re somehow superior to people with more melanin. That’s it. Racism is caused by white supremacy.

Racism is caused by thinking that by being exposed to other cultures is enough to cure racism. It’s thinking that somehow the white man in this comic is the most important in this situation, instead of all the POC he’d hurt in the past, and will continue to hurt in the future because he’s still perpetuating racism. Racism is thinking that ~admiring someone else’s culture absolves racism. All he did was cover up his racism and this is how white liberals convince themselves that they aren’t racist, this special brand of NotMyGrandparents! racism is just as harmful, maybe even more than the extreme obvious KKK brand of racism. Because they will convince themselves that they don’t have these ingrained biases and don’t benefit from the system that was set in place for them to excel. 

This is so fucking scary to me, that this is all it take for people to think they’re not racist 

White people are childish.

i want u to look at this Black man’s face in his response to the verdict. that is the pain of all Black people who are enslaved by this corrupt racist system.

That is the face of more than 500 years of racist and capitalist oppression against Black people. the face of all Black people who have been shut out from this unjust system and either imprisoned, tortured, killed, or all three.

that is the face Trayvon would have had if he were here to see that Zimmerman was found not guilty. shit, if Trayvon were alive HE’d be the one charged guilty.

god this is so true and it hurts. these photos hurt me, i am sad for him.

I read the article, but it wasn’t clear about who this man supposedly assaulted and when the supposed assault took place BEFORE the cops shot him.

Demand rape charges be brought against the men who raped and murdered 16-year-old African-American boy

Yesterday we reported on the virtual sweeping-under-the-rug of the death of Dione Payne, 16, of Dayton, Ohio. The Dayton Daily News, one of the only local sources to report on the rape, and beating death of the youth seemed more interested in focusing on the “troubled past” of the victim, instead of the past of the murderers.

Michael A. Geldrich, 36, and Michael J. Watson, 39, are both being held in the Warren County Jail for the December 1 beating death of the young Payne. Miami Valley Hospital workers discovered that Payne had been sexually assaulted during the attack. Hospital personnel contacted Middletown police and stated the teen had been sexually assaulted, according to the police report. But thus far, no rape charges have been brought, and hate crime charges have been dismissed point blank by Franklin Police Chief Russ Whitman, who said there is “no evidence” that there was a racial motive to the rape and murder of this 16-year-old African American.
To add insult to injury, some local media reports have fixated on a checkered history of the juvenile: possessing narcotics, and even allegations that he had fired gun shots in the past. They talked about morbid comments made on his Facebook account before the day he was raped and beaten to death. They even called the 16-year-old out for getting arrested for littering. What they did not do was explain why the police have ruled out a racial motive to the attack, and why the Warren County Prosecutor has neither pursued hate crime charges, nor even charged the attackers with rape.

These questions still remain unanswered. But there is more that we can do besides reading about this frustrating account and getting on with our day in silence. What can you do? Well for starters, contact the Warren County Prosecutor, who is now handling the case. Demand that all crimes committed against 16 year old Dione Payne be presented to the grand jury on Michael A. Geldrich and Michael J. Watson- for the hate crime of rape, robbery and murder! The prosecutor can be contacted at the number and email below:
David Fornshell513-695-1325David.Fornshell@co.warren.oh.us
Ask why these criminals have not been charged for raping the 16-year-old boy who they murdered. Also ask why hate crime charges are being excluded, when this does not seem to have been a common practice for these drug buyers to rape and beat-to-death previous people who they have tried to procure narcotics from.
Are these charges being brushed off because there were drugs potentially involved, or for some other reason that neither the police, the City of Franklin nor the local media are reporting.
SPREAD THE WORD and get people involved. Tell everyone you know who thinks this 16-year-old rape and murder victim deserves justice, in spite of his “troubled past”.
