Anime, Ass, and Bad: Ebony Elizabeth @Ebonyteach Being a nerd raised in the ghetto can't be an excuse for internalized antiblackness forever. 8/18/16, 7:05 PM 187 RETWEETS 211 LIKES <p><a href="http://lastsonlost.tumblr.com/post/154102881692/daisyology-lepetitenoirmarkie" class="tumblr_blog">lastsonlost</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://daisyology.tumblr.com/post/149414000741/lepetitenoirmarkie-thereasonforthewordbitch" class="tumblr_blog">daisyology</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://lepetitenoirmarkie.tumblr.com/post/149405520432/thereasonforthewordbitch-sourcedumal-say-that" class="tumblr_blog">lepetitenoirmarkie</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://thereasonforthewordbitch.tumblr.com/post/149399238940/sourcedumal-say-that-again-yall-better" class="tumblr_blog">thereasonforthewordbitch</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://sourcedumal.tumblr.com/post/149342415911">sourcedumal</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Say that again!!!!</p> <p>Y’all better stop with this ‘I’m not like these OTHER Black kids’ bullshit out here. </p> </blockquote> <p>yes cuz niggas tired of hearing bout how the hood niggas bullied you in high school and the black girls aint like you cuz you like anime</p> </blockquote> <p>True, but at the SAME TIME we can’t deny that there is and was PLENTY of niggas calling these same kids “oreos” and roasting them for “trying to act or talking white”. That doesn’t help the internalized racism being shunned and being constantly picked at to validate blackness. </p> </blockquote> <p>yea i don’t understand why yall want these same black kids yall bully for this behavior to be so willing and happy about it. yall tired of hearing about black nerds being bullied but then stand to the side and watch it happen all the time. yall tired of hearing it well i guess they tired of LIVING it. and maybe that fake comradiere they have with other non black people is the only comfort they have.</p> <p>yall want all the solidarity in the black community but then at the same time yall step on black people who don’t conform. yall want everyone to do all black only, but then turn around and ignore black people. fuck all yall. </p> <p>yall make someone hate themselves for not being black enough, and then turn around and shame them for feeling that way. yall look down on black nerds because they rather read a comic than zane, because they stan for an asain entertainer and not a black one, because they might be into some alternative culture that isn’t rooted in black culture–and then turn around and say “yea just because we shit on yall for not acting black but that doesn’t mean yall not black.” like shut the fuck up. </p> <p>why dont we stop trying to police how black people should fit into black culture then? why dont we just allow black people to like rap OR j-pop and not demand that they must choose a side. how about we dont ostracize the black nerds who wanna talk more about pop culture and social issues. how about we accept black nerds/geeks/otakus as they are and maybe they wont be trying so hard to distance themselves from the black community.</p> </blockquote> <p>FUCKING YES. </p> <p>Thank you so much @daisyology .</p> <blockquote> <p> Y’all act like this was some lunch money and swirlies in the bathroom bullshit. No we were black kids dealing with gun-toting, gang affiliated, drug dealing previously arrested BLACK bullies. From home to class and back there was never one second of peace just one brutal ass whoopin after another. </p> <p>Every step of my high school life niggas were literally try to kill my ass for not being the right kind of black. I spent more time leaving the ER then i did leaving class. Every other day I was crawling my bloody ass out of the damn Street after getting knocked the fuck out. Where was this unity when I was pushed down whole flights of steps, beat with a fucking stick, and hand textbooks thrown at me?</p> <p>where were you people when I had to hide in the boys bathroom until everybody left the school?  Where were all of you the many times I was so desperate to just end it already because I was sick and tired of being physically beaten?  Where were you when the “bullying” got so bad (as if it wasn’t bad enough already) I decided to take a gun to school? </p> <p>I didn’t just have a few bad days, I had 4 fucked up years and it’s a miracle that I got through any of it at all, no thanks to you people. Please tell me when you had my back? I don’t remember anybody talking me out of a window or convincing me to take a gun back home.  When i was being “bullying” the only black person that had my back was me, thank you very much.</p> <p>Nobody said shit. Nobody did shit</p> </blockquote> </blockquote>
