… I wanna join a tinychat cos I finally have my new laptop w/ a webcam and I look cute, even in an old sweater
but there is nobody else there and I am too shy to be there alone
also I dunno what to talk to her about??
white people, stop trying the “you’re talking about institutionalized racism, i’m talking about racism" shit. guess what? racism refers to the fact that the oppression is institutionalized because that’s how it affects a WHOLE ACTUAL RACE. that is the point— it is RACISM not "critical of me as an individual on the internet and it hurt my white feelings-ISM". it doesn’t mean "just 1 person being mean to another person with no real world consequences for them or their entire race". there are and have been historically intentionally set up systems to hold people of color back and give white people an unearned advantage in the future (which is now the present) forever, ON PURPOSE. they set that up on purpose so that you can’t be held back as a race, for your race, because you hold and benefit from the power to hold people back! realize that you make no fucking sense.
a joke about white people on tumblr wearing sandals with socks has no consequences. it doesn’t affect the white race or hold them back in any way that’s why it isn’t racist. because what does it do to your race’s place in society………. how does it hinder white people? what statistics are showing to hold white people back for that for being white? recognize the power of making a joke about people of color because guess what, every statistic in here about how many times people of color are stopped by the police, accused of terrorism, not hired, and killed can be linked back to racist jokes and racist stereotypes being perpetuated. that’s what i mean by “power”. there is your disparity in “power”. so you can stop pretending “white people like mayonnaise” is fucking oppressive.
why do I keep falling for straight girls goddamn it

THE WORST FEELING EVER IS WHEN YOURE SO ENTHUSIASTIC TELLING SOMEONE SOMETHING AND YOU CAN JUST PHYSICALLY FEEL THEM NOT CARING AT ALL SO YOU TRY HARDER BUT YOU JUST CANNOT GRASP THEIR ATTENTION SO YOU SLOWLY FADE OUT AND LET THEM GO BACK TO DOING WHAT THEY DO AND YOU WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF THEIR DAY TO TELL THEM SOMETHING YOU’RE HAPPY ABOUT
