Can we just talk about these racist girls who decided to post a Youtube video about the black community at their Gainesville high school recently? Apart from dropping the N word a ridiculous amount of times, they believe in an outmoded, essentialist version of race. Let me just say, race is NOT a biological concept but a socio-historical one. These two girls had to drop out of high school due to their unsightly conduct. Absolutely, ridiculously racist. So, in honor of the first “That’s Racist” Moment of the Week, let’s do a little roast, shall we?
To the Two Racist High Schoolers,
How dare you. How dare you comment on other people simply for the color of their skin and not, as MLKJ would say, “the content of their character.” You have NO RIGHT to talk about educated, hardworking individuals like that, simply because you live a more privileged lifestyle than they do.
Are you blind to the majority culture advantages you receive? Do you not know that many people in minorities are treated differently by prospective bosses because of how we look, not even who we are? Do you not know that we are aspiring, that we have dreams, that we have families we love? I guess not. Because to you two, we as minority students will only be seen by our accents or our “chinky” eyes or the amount of melanin in our skin. To you, we will never be seen by our motivation or our persistence or our sheer courage to walk into a culture which doesn’t accept us.
Excuse you. Excuse you for talking about about minorities as statistics, that “10% of Asians or whatever.” You don’t know us. You obviously don’t know any of us. Please shut up and go read some articles before you hurt yourself with your blatant, blanket statements.
To end, most of those African Americans will achieve far more than you ever dreamed of. Just so you know, people who experience hardship early in life usually come out better for it later. Most likely, several of the individuals you insulted will go on to own their own business or become CEOs of companies that you might work for at a entry-level job.
So remember to not be racist. Because we will remember you two and the things you said.
Smart idea. Post it on Youtube where the whole social media blogosphere can witness your ridiculous bigot attitude.
That’s Racist, girls, and now you know it.
