Yo, Is This Racist?

Yo, ask me if something is racist and I'll tell you. If it's absolutely necessary for you to know, I'm not white.

Anonymous asked: Yo, I don't think all Republicans/Libertarians are racist. They are just really selfish and only care about themselves. Okay, maybe they care about their rich FRIENDS, too, who happen to be all white- oh shit.

oh shit

Anonymous asked: I'm mixed-race and have a hard time explaining why the "so what kind of brown are you" question makes me uncomfortable. Pointers?

I like how people get so fucking familiar when someone isn’t white. They don’t own you (even if they think they do), you don’t have to tell them shit if you don’t want to.

Anonymous asked: Im not racist but I think if you are going to live here, you should learn English. I mean, I don't want to go to the store and the guy at the register can barely understand what I am ordering. I know you're just trying to escape the hell hole you grew up in but if you don't want to learn proper english, you should go back to Alabama.

This is only a sort of ok joke.

Anonymous asked: I've been called a party-pooper for bringing racism and feminism into conversations =(

You need to stop hanging out with people who think being racist and sexist constitutes a “party.”

sibilants asked: I'm an Asian girl and every now and again some old white guy on the street will throw me a "Ni hao" or a greeting in some other Asian languages

I like how racists always seem to think, “I bet this Asian person will appreciate the fact that I noticed that they’re not white.”
