"Here is the sociological definition of racism that is more useful in discussing race relations because it acknowledges the system of racism as a whole instead of just on a person to person level."
“Yeah but the Merriam Webster dictionary says—”
You can’t discredit either…
No. It’s not as valid. Jesus fucking Christ how is this even a question.
Yes. It is. You do not have the importance to deem something as invalid. A denotative definition is just as valid as a connotative definition. Don’t like that fact? Then make an entirely new word and get it approved officially. Denotative is NOT invalid. Ever.
The individual definition of racism does not take into account the institutions in place that contribute to racism as a SYSTEM. Racism is not just a person to person act of prejudice, it is the cultural and institutional discrimination that takes place on a larger level. By using the Merriam Webster definition of racism, reverse racism is deemed just as harmful as actual racism. A slave saying they hate their white masters is considered equally as harmful as white slave owners saying they hate the people they have structural power over to oppress and enslave. All definitions are not created equal and don’t always adequately explain the words they are defining. The mainstream definition doesn’t even scratch the surface of racism as a system.
It might be helpful to speak of “personal racism” and “institutional racism.”
Institutional racism against white people: nonexistent.
Personal racism against white people: less common than you might think, and definitely less harmful than you might think, since it’s generally just a response to the institutional racism POCs face on a daily basis.
Agreed. I try to differentiate but a lot of people are reblogging posts without that context and understanding and it’s p silly.
After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.

i’m like so ad right now but also not??? lik ei don’t know qhat i;m feeling i mean i;m not really sad but i’m definitely not happy right now like i had my party saturday and that was super fun like actually just so much fun and i loved it and i love my friends and i was able to forget about some things but not everything and i just really loved that and i felt so good on saturday but i’m just not ovrall happy which i hate because i feel like i should be happy bc i don’t have anything to feel really sad about i’m just so stressed out about literally everything like i saw chloe on friday and honestly i’m about to cry every time i think about it like i get that she’s in this like huge and really sucky situation but still i think she should at least talk to me i mean we were literally best friends and i love her so much but i don’t get why she won’t talk to me. she moved back at the very end of august and we haven’t talked since my birthday and i have made so many attempts at contacting her like literally everything i could think of fb texting even email i would find her on here but she deleted for a while and i don”t know if she ever remade so i don’t know her url to find her and so on wednesday i send her this super long message on fb and then my phone said it didn’t send so i sent it over text too and it was 9 messages like i just had so much to say and i literally cried writing it i was so mad and it was just about how mad i was and pissed off at her and how i thought it was super rude of her to not talk to me and to nnot make any attempts at contacting me like she has my number and fb and email and she knows where i live and she knows my school/work schedule cuz it’s literally the same as last year and i told her that i just got so pissed but also really sad bc i just miss her so much and i want to be able to talk to her about everything bc she’s really the only person i felt comfortable talking to about all my shit like my grandparents and school and college and friedns and i just want to talk to someone about it but i’m not that close with anyone else i mean i would talk to emily about it but whenever i try to talk to her about stuff she’s busy or something so i never get that full conversation experience and i feel bad bc that sound really stupid but i just dont know and the only person i think i could talk to about that stuff is mary ann like we’re super close now and she’s probs my best friend from school rn and probs just i general but i just don’t know how to talk to her about that kind of stuff. like with chloe it was just so open cuz she’s so easy to talk to and she wuld talk to me about her dad like her real dad and her parents and we literally made plans to run away together that sounds so stupid but i’m not kidding we literally started making plans to move to ny after i graduated xuz she would just be at spc and a couple months ago i literally started looking at apartments there to maybe just stay the summer or something and i just couldn’t bring myself to do it seriously bc i would be alone and i just kept thinking about her and i’m literally crying rn. but anyways i saw her on friday when i went to winghouse with my dad and she was sitting up front alone and i went over to her and we hugged so much and we were both crying like i didn’t even want to do anything else just hug her and cry with her but then she pulled away so we just sat and talked for almost half an hour and she told me a bunch of stuff and i guess she’s working there now bc she doesn’t want to come back to the y which i sort of get bc there is that stigma there and everyone is in your business but she was just complaining about not having a job and saying that no one else called her back and i was like seriously?? bc she would have a job at the y in 2 sec flat like nayana has been looking to hire a new girl for a while and she knows that she would have been hired even if nayana hadn’t been looking to hire but i just let her talk. and when we were talking it sort of felt like it used to but then i would look at her and see her uniform and i would remember that no it’s not how it used to and i am still mad at her and i din’t want to be mad at her but i just still was and she never gave me a good reason like she just said that she didn’t want ot talk to anyone for a while nad then gave some lame excuse that her phone was dead and she lost her charger for like a week and i was like seriously?? your phone was dead for two months?? and there are like so many other ways to talk to people now i was just in awe of her audacity in giving me that bullshit excuse. and so then she said she was actually planning on calling me that night and that she was coming to my party but then she didn’t?? like she literally said i’ll be there and that she had to buy a costume anyway so she would be pocahontas and then she din’t show and i was like seriously??? and i just kept waiting for her and she never even sent me a text or anything and now i’m just really mad and pissed at her like what/?? she doesn’t even have the decency to just say hey sorry can’t make it???? like that is just so rude i feel like and i get that she didn’t want to talk to anyone but i hate that i’m just anyone??? and so tomorrow i’m gonna see courtney and talk to her bout all this bc i feel like she’s the only person that gets it and i just feel so sad and mad at both her and myself tbh. like what kind of person does that to thier best friend???
