You can be prejudice, which is completely different than being a racist.
Why are white people the only ones that can be racist?
Who’s in power? Whiteness is in power, yes, I know the President is black but take a look at the Senators, take a look at the Representatives, take a look at ALL the Presidents. White, what kind of rules do you think have been set in place to systematically catapult white people into power? Where shall I begin?
Whatch THIS video
Back to POC being racist, are POC in power? No. Doesn’t matter what country you’re in, they’re not in power. They are being dummied by the US imperialism and whiteness.
They can be prejudice, they can hate another race and discriminate against them but society puts both the races as a minority. Which can then bring another argument of oppression Olympics. It shouldn’t be about who’s more oppressed and deserves a bigger crutch, it’s about uniting together and recognizing that we are not the problem.
POC learned to hate each other by… White people. People of color have been historically pinned against each other so it takes the pressure off the real oppressor. Republicans claim that Black people should hate undocumented immigrants because they’re taking away their jobs.. their lower skilled underpaid jobs.
I could go on for days and days.
Don’t ever feel as if you’re entitled to get away with poor language or being an ignorant selfish asshole because you are friends with people of color, have a gay sibling or friend or had a parent who was undocumented.
Until you, yourself have experienced the journey of being anything that’s ever been discriminated against don’t feel as if you have the free pass to use discriminatory language or speak for them. I don’t care that your mom was undocumented for 2 years when she first came 25 years ago, you can’t speak for us. So your grandparents migrated the ‘right way’, don’t care, not the same thing. Don’t tell me what gay people feel because your sibling is gay and don’t tell me what’s culturally appropriate because your friend is Mexican and doesn’t care, you’re just an asshole.
Whiteness is not the same as being a white person, there’s a difference.
Secondly, people of color can not be racist.
Racism = power + prejudice
Also, doubt that you’ll do this but try reading THIS and then get back to me. HOLLA
