Those people who complain about ‘social justice warriors’ and people being ‘too’ critical about oppression and lack of representation just strike me as having really fucked up priorities.
In a world full of oppression you have a choice to support people who fight oppression or to criticize them…
You find yourself in a group of people standing next to a cliff.
Suddenly, someone pushes another person, sending them over the edge. Thankfully, the victim is able to hold on to the edge rather than fall to their death, but nobody makes a move to help them or stop the perpetrator. Everyone, including yourself, simply stands there watching.
Angry that they’ve been pushed, angry that nobody is helping them as they struggle not to fall, the victim screams, ‘Is anybody going to fucking help me??’
That gets everyone’s attention. ‘Why are you mad at me?’ one person asks. ‘I didn’t push you.’
'Nobody is going to want to help you with an attitude like that.'
'You're just as bad as him.'
Nobody makes a move to help.
The victim screams in frustration, their fingers slipping. ‘You’ve got to be fucking joking!’ they shout as they lose their grip.
'You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.' You say as you walk away.
Welcome to the anti-sj/’real justice’ movement.
some of the anti sj will step on that person’s fingers too because they think they’re being “too harsh”
That’s me, hanging off that cliff, there.(via justwhitesupremacythings)
No, my name is NOT too ‘ethnic’ for your tongue. Stop normalising white names.
having a white name in a white country isn’t normal!
stop normalizing white people in white countries!
Won’t be any white countries soon! #whitegenoicide2014
I’m not sure if I hate “anti-sj” or “real-sj” people more. Members of both “movements” should get together and have a nitric acid gargling party.
The big bad was racism.
There wasn’t just one villain, there was two.
The leader of “those derned whities” and the leader of the natives.
They both wanted to wipe each other off the face of the planet and Pocahontas and John are caught in between trying to stop each group.
This is the point of Pocahontas not “these white people are dangerous” it’s a movie that shows that hating people for their skin color is horrible either way.
Breaking news: It’s racist to resist the invasion and occupation of your home land! It’s racist to not want to be colonized! It’s racist to be weary of people who have already demonstrated their capability for wanton cruelty and cold blooded murder! Yep, racist.
The fact that Coachella would choose ‘native aesthetics’ to co-opt and reproduce for the amusement of a largely white audience right on the doorstep of the Cabazon Indian Reservation just shows how little they consider NDN’s anything more than fiction or exotic history for the consumption of 20-something hipsters.
