Exhibit A: these set of Angela Bassett gifs…
And she’s timeless!
Basically, Angela Bassett looked Father Time in the face…
and told him to move the hell on.
Queen. Goddess. Extreme Enunciator. The Ageless Acting Phenom, Angela Bassett.
I’ve always loved Angela Bassett. She is a freaking otherworldly being.
I’m gonna watch Malcolm X tonight
Boy of nine killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school. He was told by other pupils ‘all white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.
Don’t you ever try to tell me there is no such thing as racism against white people. And don’t you dare fucking tell me it’s ‘reverse’ racism either.
And this was in the UK. He and his family are in their own country, their own homeland.
Repeat after me: ALL RACISM IS BAD. RACISM AGAINST ANYBODY IS BAD. PERIOD.
There is now one. ONE person found to have been bullied for being white. ONE.
For being a person of color? Too many to fucking list.
Repeat after me: Racism requires the power to systematically oppress an entire group of people. Racism requires the power to systematically oppress an entire group of people. So no, racism against those who oppress does not exist.
Suicide is sad and bullying is pathetic. But until I see masses of white people jailed for petty things; killed over tea, skittles, mail, or even asking for help; masses of politicians and others calling them welfare queens; etc. do NOT compare one or even 10 incidents to a 400+ year old history of torture and savagery.
I wasn’t going to say anything but this shit pissed me off.
This still isn’t racism it’s prejudice.
It’s an incredibly unfortunate thing to happen but it’s true.
Also was it really necessary to add that this was racism against white people? Y’all don’t pick your battles well.
