Imagine a black boy videotaping himself talking about how he intends to kill people. Shit will go viral. “That fucking thug!” Imagine a brown boy videotaping himself talking about how he intends to shoot a neighborhood. “Those fucking terrorists!” Now a white boy does it. It’s cool. “He’s just a little alone, doesn’t have too many friends. Bless his heart, wish people would see his golden heart, Martha.”
“We are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners. There is no sanction anywhere for the deplorable condition in which our women have to live.”—Muhammad Ali Jinnah
It really annoys me when people say white privilege doesn't exist outside of white countries. White privilege exist in almost every country that had once been part of a European colony. White privilege exists in any country that is controlled by European politics and economy. Like they think poc can just run away when our countries are being essentially controlled by white people.
Girl you can get them tried ass MLK quotes outta here!! MLK couldn't stand your white ass!! It's well documented about the shit MLK used to say about white people. So why you on googling peace quotes that he said, why don't you look up the real shit he said too.
Your only argument is that I’m white. If you would like to show me a link to a well sourced, in context quote that proves I am wrong I will happily stop quoting him otherwise but until then I hold to my belief that Martin Luther King Jr. preached that everyone should love everyone and that he believed that people of color should not reply to caucasian racism with hate, but with love and non-aggression
"Adding on to that "don't fight fire with fire" thing. I'm Indian, from India(A big fuck you to Columbus). Gandhi had fought peacefully for a big part of the 150 years the british were in my country. And, you know what they offered us? DOMINION STATUS. As in, the Queen still reigns but we get to be political puppet leaders in our own country. You know what stopped it? Revolutionaries bombing their shit and defending themselves against their violence. So, screw "dent fight feir wid feir gersh!""
Oh yeah, violence and hatred definitely works to get what you want, but it’s not going to change someone’s state of mind on issues.
