African American doctors attempting to save the life of a Klu Klux Klan member:
This photo left me speechless, this is what respect is.
this is what grace is
I never scroll pass this photo.. This is humanity, a lot of people can learn from this picture.
I find both of these points of view interesting. I think the key point that I agree with most about this entire thing is what littlebearjams pointed out: “this is a fucking pathetic ass attempt at invalidating a HUMAN BEING’S FEELINGS.” Otherwise, my opinions about all this will be kept neutral.
Pro Tip: Instead of more White Woman Tears, try taking responsibility for your white privileged behavior.
WOW!!!! wowowowoww. THIS?????? IS?? THE BIGGEST PIECE OF SHIT I’VE COME ACROSS IN A LONG ASS TIME!!!! this is horrendous. let’s start with the obvious. WHITE PRIVILEGE. ok. yes, we live in a society were women, black people, muslims, and pretty much everyone who is not a rich white straight protestant male are discriminated against. white privilege is real, male privilege is real, all of this is real. BUT GUESS FUCKING WHAT!!!!!!!! NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE PRIVILEGED!!!!!!!! NOT ALL MEN ARE PRIVILEGED!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS THE EXACT FUCKING BULLSHIT AS BEING RACIST AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE AND SEXIST AGAINST WOMEN!!!!!!! this is a fucking pathetic ass attempt at invalidating a HUMAN BEING’S FEELINGS and making fun of them for trying to have a real conversation about race and defending themselves in an argument. and that’s what we are, motherfucker, human fucking beings. let’s break down one of these asinine shit bubbles.
"My feelings are hurt." THAT IS A VALID FUCKING CONCERN. if someone comes up to you and says "my feelings are hurt", do you say, "you’re white, fuck off"? FOR CHRIST’S FUCKING SAKES, tumblr as a whole is absolutely filled to the brim with posts about depression, self harm, mental illness, and the general unwellness of people who are SAD. AND WHITE PEOPLE GET TO BE SAD!!! EVERYONE FUCKING GETS TO BE SAD!!!!! i don’t care why they are sad, if they are sad, for any fucking reason, you hold your shit and you comfort them!!!
if you are having a discussion about race with a white person and they are asking valid questions, trying to understand a subject to better educate themselves and make the world a better place, no matter how clumsily they are doing it, so long as they mean well, WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TO WHIP YOUR DICK OUT AND SMEAR IT ALL OVER THEIR FACES WITH “YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND BECAUSE YOU ARE WHITE” NONSENSE FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!!!!! FUCK OFF!!!!!!!! ALL OF THIS CAN FUCK ALL THE WAY OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"try taking responsibility for your white privileged behavior"
oh my fucking god fuck me all the way up the ass. what is white privileged behaviour, exactly? getting an education? taking advantage of opportunities? trying as hard as you can to be the best person you can be? is that white privilege behaviour?????? because i want that, for everyone, white black and otherwise, and i will do everything in my power to make sure it happens for everyone, and i bet you any DECENT white person will say the exact same thing and live up to it. so i’m sorry. i’m so sosososososososo sorry if i am making everything i can of my life, and i’m so sorry that i am simultaneously WHITE.
and you know, i try to look at it from another perspective as well. what if this was about a man trying to talk about feminism, and he was saying things like this. “my feelings are hurt” “i have female friends” “i didn’t ask to be a man” “not my fault”. most reasonable people, myself included, would see this and think, “wow this man is really trying to understand. maybe he’s not quite there, but clearly he feels attacked and maybe we should lay off him a little bit and try having the conversation in another way”. i would blame the other party for making that man feel that way. not angrily, and perhapse “blame” is a strong word, but i would see it as the other party’s job to, as an eloquent, intelligent person in a political discussion, to make the person feel like they are in a place where they can express themselves freely. NOT RIDE THEIR ASS HARDER FOR NOT UNDERSTANDING.
god this is the most acrid pile of diarrhea horse shit i have ever read in my entire life.
and i’m super sorry to whoever i reblogged this from, if you’re still my follower, i probably love you, but oh my god, this is not the way. this is not the way at all.
