He “resisted arrest,” he didn’t do what he was told as quickly as he should have, he may have shoved someone, he smoked a joint, he flirted with a white girl, he broke the Sabbath and disturbed the peace. … Those are all the same thing.
That is some fine writing. And a good point.
finally met aud’s neighbor! she’s a really pretty middle-aged black lady from Chicago. we hung out while she tore down the morning glory infestation that was snuffing out her plot. she says she had a run-in with a creepy white dude in the building a few weeks ago and she casually mentioned that she has to be extra careful about people like that because if cops come they will go after her first. it’s always a trip becoming aware of the massive cracker-shaped gaps in my understanding of how modern American racism actually is.
she let me show her the Captain’s best tricks, then i went in because i was getting a sunburn. it’s fucking boiling out there.
white abled cishets complaining about the mean little disabled trans who just wants a safe space
not surprised tbh
"white people" ain’t doing shit to your translucent wonderbread ass. stop.
white people who think the best way to secure a favorable response is by stereotyping any group they disagree with to erase any participation by minorities
thanks for your help wonderbread
what would reality do without your little touch-ups
i don’t wanna get into it too much without seeing the post but with the caveat that I am aware player exploitation exists and racism from team managers/owners is a legit problem:
it seems like it would take a pretty big pair of “let me tell you how you’re oppressed” SJW balls to erase the agency, devotion and pride of accomplishment of an entire pool of talented athletes who genuinely love sports because they are playing while black. i’m uncomfortable making or agreeing with any blanket judgments on their situation made from the outside since i’m neither black nor athletic and the people who are can speak for themselves.
