So. Yesterday, after FCKH8 accused Colorlines of “race baiting” and spammed the site with links to their “call for an apology”, Colorlines updated their post on FCKH8’s video with the following:
Update, September 15, 2014, 5:28 p.m.:
Colorlines would like to acknowledge that we…
"you’ll need to know this math formula later in life"
It should say:
"You lied TO SOME PEOPLE. Because some people are not going into a STEM field. For people who are, that formula is the basis of some part of their studies and they have to know it by heart to do everything else.
This perfectly showcases just how bizarre the “NOT ALL x!” excuse is.
People who say bi erasure doesn’t happen need to realize Freddie Mercury is known as the most famous homosexual man when he identified himself as bisexual. If that’s not bi erasure I don’t even know.
Also PoC erasure, most people don’t know he was 100% Indian
Specifically he was Parsi.
I think a lot of people need to see this
this article is bullshit. Again trying to erase and undermine the voices of POC. This is honestly an article full of nothing but white tears and ‘my feelings have been hurt’. Every wonder why we are speaking english? Because of fucking colonialism. That’s why. Not because we have a choice to speak the english language. Again, that is a tick off to white supremacy.
'I enjoy other cultures' - Cultures aren't meant to be enjoyed you dimwit they are meant to be respected
What is british-esque? Did the greeks not steal thier ‘knowledge’ from the Africans? DId they not pass it as their own. Most of thier stuff comes from Ancient Egyptians, who *ding ding* are africans.
And you are right, white people don’t have a culture. You’re blabbing on about how we appropiate it but failed to realise that we have to assmiliate into the western world. I would be made fun of wearing my cultural attire by your people so there is no way in hell you lot can wear it, profit from it and capatlise it. Oh and a bonus, people will just think you are ‘unique’ because of your white privilege.
I can serve this article all day and night. But just because your feelings are hurt, you are not going to silence the voices of POC. We will be heard and you will fucking listen.
'Not giving a fuck' you only care about your humanity. Yeah and you are racist. All I hear from this article is 'me me me me me me me me me me'
In simpler terms, ya’ll would get angry over someone wearing a t-shirt of a band that they don’t listen to but can’t understand cultral appropiation.?
Its nothing new that white people wanna steal everything anyway lol.
