bizarre-transmission: thettasigma: ferventfox: awesome-everyday: internetdumpsterfires: Black people can’t be racist. Ugh, okay. The remark by this black woman was disrespectful and based on race. It was rude, bigoted and uncalled for. But no, in an anti black world, black people do not have the social, political or systemic financial power to be racist. Racism implies that beyond hurting and insulting that asian woman that this black woman is connected to a system that has the power to negatively impact this woman’s existence. That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do. And furthermore, there could be an argument made that deteoit is chocolate city and perhaps she does have that infrastructure of black networks to truly effect her opponent, but idk I was in Detroit last year and it looks a lot like Brooklyn does now. White and gentrified. White people with money, who control our political systems, finances, and predominant social narratives are claiming urban space like they’re colonizing pioneers looking to take the new world. Detroit isn’t the same anymore. Anyway, black people can be shitty insensitive bigots but we do not have the social capital to be racist, particularly not in the united states. “That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do.”  Ahahaha: No. A congressperson is the definition of systemic power. You can’t bitch about lack of political power when we are talking about elected politician.  Clearly the world isn’t so anti-black that it couldn’t vote her in.  Chang is also a first generation American, while Scott, to my knowledge, is not, and she specifically made anti-immigrant comments. She also has “power” within the context of her own ethnic community and she used that power to direct racism towards other African-Americans who supported Chang by implying they were somehow traitors, essentially dictating how they ought to act based on their race, particularly Chang’s husband for his interracial marriage (I don’t give a flying fuck what race you are, negative comments about interracial marriage and mixed race people are racist. period. end of story).  Even if I did accept the prejudice + power model or racism (which I don’t as that is neither the etymology or common usage of the word) Cook’s comments would certainly fit the bill. She made race based attacks on people based on types of marginalization that she is exempt from; and did so from a position of power partially gained by the fact that she is exempt from these types of discrimination.   It’s racist. Stop making excuses.  “That dark skinned woman who’s an incumbent running for office likely has about the same amount of systematic power as I do.” Is this person on drugs? They’re claiming that… A political person… A congresswoman… Has no power in the country in which she was elected… By the populace… As a politician. That, or they’re a politician too. Apparently we can say anything now and it makes sense. Huh. Also these remarks are the absolute epitomy of racism and if anyone refuses to see it, they’re not purely misinformed. They are delusional. *literally calls an Asian person ching chong*“How dare you say I’m being racist??” Thank you for attending today’s lecture on cognitive dissonance.: Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott orn Asian opponent: Don't vote for the ching-chong! by Violet lkonomova August 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM comment v bizarre-transmission: thettasigma: ferventfox: awesome-everyday: internetdumpsterfires: Black people can’t be racist.

wunderblumekind: rainytimemachinedeer: introvertunites: the-erikalypse: ellinfp: dailypsychologyfacts: 7 Subtle Signs a Shy Girl Likes You | Lesly D. x Psych2Go Number 6. So freaking accurate. Okay I know this is supposed to be an educational video but the drawings in this are SO. GOT. DAMN. CUTE. Ok, this is bad. Not the video, it’s great! Buuut, idk, it’s just that I have/do all of them, but I’m a guy. I know that these characteristics aren’t exclusive, but no one really applies this sort of thinking to me just because I’m a guy. :( It’s frustrating and somewhat defeating when I just get labeled as the “nice guy” because I don’t use the typical male flirting strategies. I like to talk with (not at) you, I want to share thoughts, emotions, and experiences with you, but I’m an introvert socially awkward from years of shaming. So I don’t have the self-confidence or self-worth to make the first move. Not to mention that, with the current social climate, if I misread things and make a move, there’s a significant amount of risk to my social, emotional psychological, work, and public status. I’m too timid and sane to try anything worthy of legal action, but even just asking someone out could have a cascade affect if it doesn’t go well. Idk. I’m just rambling, so I’ll leave it there for now. Aww I feel attacked ahahahah. I remember how I was like Goethe in replying or texting messages, writing poems, drawing and painting, baking and cooking for him, making handmade things, little gifts, but sooo shy in front of my man :)) I rare talked to him directly or even say hi. He was actually even confused on our first date if I really like him or not. He texted me then on next day if I (actually) really have interest on a serious relationship with him, because I looked and behaved very odd in front of him. I texted him back like hours later (bc I had to prepare and select good words I have to use) :))) Srsly my face looked like a tomato all day long. We used to laugh till now if we recall the day. I am always so good at making people I like get confused (thanks to my first dominant function Fi). Like, ever. ahahaha : wunderblumekind: rainytimemachinedeer: introvertunites: the-erikalypse: ellinfp: dailypsychologyfacts: 7 Subtle Signs a Shy Girl Likes You | Lesly D. x Psych2Go Number 6.
