tbh all the white ppl i know who truly understand racism to the best of their ability, have never asked me “do you hate white people???”
cause they actually listened to me and figured out that i hate white supremacy, not individual white people for simply being white
That and they went beyond the kindergarten, sentimentalist understanding of racism and race relations.
If you needed more evidence that you should think carefully about what you put online, a girl named Breanna Mitchell has incited the Internet by tweeting a “smiling selfie” of herself at the remains of the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland.
Posted in June, it only came to the Internet’s attention this month, when angry Twitter users reacted en masse to the perceived desecration of a memorial to human brutality.This girl’s a fucking dumbass.
Nobody would be mad if you took a smiling selfie on a plantation in the South. Of course, weddings literally happen on plantations so…
Can we just talk about all the horrible pictures being taken at A Subtlety?
Can we talk about Plantation style weddings?
Can we talk about ghetto/black face parties at colleges?
I mean, white people hire photographers to take shots of them participating in apologetically racist shit on a regular basis but there is no outrage there outside of the black community.

천 달러 미만을 아동 친 가족에게 제공해 주면 아동이 친가족과 함께 살 수 있는 상황에서 아동을 해외입양하기 위해 수천이나 수만 달러를 소비하는 것은 윤리적으로 맞는지 우리는 질문해 봐야 한다. We must ask ourselves if it is ethical to spend thousands of dollars (or tens of thousands of dollars) to arrange an intercountry adoption, when aid of less than a thousand dollars would have kept the child with their birth family.
