Like, white guilt?

You’re talking about white guilt, right?

I don’t know, man. Being an ally isn’t about drawing up a list of all the terrible things your people have done, and then sitting in a corner for a certain amount of time every day and feeling bad about it. That doesn’t help anyone, and it doesn’t change the system. Worst of all, it redirects the focus back on to you. If you lose yourself in the white guilt hole, pretty soon, you begin to think that the real victim of racism and oppression becomes you

That kind of antiracism is just an expression of white privilege, because its convenient. It doesn’t involve talking to black people and other POC. Healing becomes about making yourself feel better; assuaging your own guilt, righting the wrongs of your own past. 

And besides, feeling guilty all the time is not a way to live. The racists have already figured this out. The Fox News talking heads and the Republican primary voters are there because of the white people who they think have given too much to “the oppressed”. Their enemy isn’t only the black welfare mother, but the pansy “multiculturalist”, the “liberal”, the race traitors who prefer to wallow in the past than move forward in the future. 

And the thing is; those who are enamoured of the cult of white guilt realize that it is a dead-end, after a while. They gain no recognition from the system for their efforts, and POC inevitably view them with scorn. And I’m scared of white liberals who feel bad all the time, because it doesn’t take much to turn an apologetic liberal into a racist, once they realize that feeling guilty about things does nothing, pretty much. There’s a reason why POC mock the well-meaning liberal so much. Because we’ve all had too many experiences interacting with the person who says all the right things, watches MSNBC and listens to NPR, voted for Obama, yet still holds views that are more racist than half the shit you hear in the Deep South. 

Because those white people will eventually realize that it actually feels much, much better to distance yourself from the crap that your grandfathers did, rather than compulsively own it, all the time. So no, white guilt is NOT a good foundation for activism, because it is transitory. Its there only if it feels good. Once the hard work of unlearning your privilege starts, suddenly, white guilt seems like a less fun endeavor. Feels less comfortable, less easy to wear. When you dispose of your feelings of guilt, your obligation to improving race relations goes out the window as well. 

Allies: listen to me. Its not about feeling guilty. Its about recognizing your place in society, recognizing that you benefit from a system that has granted you enormous amounts of privilege. You can’t help being born the way you are. Why feel bad about it? 

So instead of wasting that energy by feeling guilty, do something. Listen to people who are different than you. Learn everything you can. When your white friends say racist shit, challenge them on it. Educate others. Treat others with humanity. 

Just listen.

We only really get glimpses of Crystal Tokyo, and everybody seems so grown-up and elegant - but now that I’m grown-up myself (I suppose), it’s clear to me that all the dorkiness never actually goes away, you just learn to embrace it, or not, or whatever.  And I just wanted to draw princess dresses.  I cannot accept the idea that 1000 years from now, the senshi go around in their sailor fuku all day, nonsense.  Princess gowns for everyone.

asker I thought about it... but I can't put it into writing, so COULD YOU!? after Steve leaves the hospital, Natasha knows something's up with S.H.I.E.L.D. Heck, she probably knew before. So while she's popping three packs of bubblegum, she blows up the internet with #captainamericab00ty and endorses tweets and anything, all-american and tagged with captain america, and the shield workers have to look at every. single. horrible. one because WHERE IS CAPTAIN AMERICA?

actualmenacebuckybarnes:

excuse you but this is an amazing headcanon and i’m in the process of putting it in my back pocket and stealing it RIGHT NOW

because you KNOW natasha knew something was up when fury gave the order for her to steal the info from the pirated ship, even though fury didn’t tell her anything bc he didn’t trust her (sob)

so natasha probably did a little digging of her own, didn’t get far but she knows enough that there’s a faction of shield that shouldn’t be trusted, and when rumlow comes to get steve, he wasn’t going to walk out of the triskilion so free and easy

it takes her all of two minutes to hack twitter, tumblr, instagram. she blows up the #captainamerica tag and all variations thereof with a new meme. it’s a picture of steve’s face she’d snapped when tony had said something particularly egregious and she calls it BACK IN MY DAY STEVE

(a popular one reads: BACK IN MY DAY WE DIDN’T HAVE YOUR UNNATURAL VACCINES/WE JUST HAD POLIO AND IT SUCKED)

she buys three packets of bubble gum and chews it, pacing the floors of the hospital. steve’s late so she gets another tag going, #captainameriBOOTY, tagging a picture of a shirtless blonde runner with shooort patriotic running shorts with steve’s name and a quick, capslocked-blurb about a sighting of the captain ameriBOOTY!!

that one goes viral in 20 minutes when TMZ picks it up.

she’s in the middle of writing a script that’ll indiscriminately tag porn, food and pictures of puppies with #steve rogers and #captain america when steve finally makes his appearance

Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.

"I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"

Well, yes, but I think you can also be saying “I am not a feminist because feminism ignores women like me - disabled women, black women, trans women” and there is nothing wrong with criticizing a movement that much of the time, would just rather replace all the white men with white women.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
