One of those whites?.....
@Hairdryer, seems pretty racist to me
@Sivls, y'all be alright
@Sivls, what are you, some kind of whitey sympathizer?
@Hairdryer, from online videos, seems only the white people start the clapping.
@Hairdryer, didn’t you hear? It’s ok to be racist against whites, but replace that word in the tweet with any other race (and change the name for logic’s sake) and it’s not allowed. 🤡🌍
@Hairdryer, Y'all are fragile as fvck, despite having an entire country based around you as the standard.
@I Hid Your Remote, sounds like you’re the fragile one
@This Guy Fvcks, Nah, just sick of white people crying crocodile tears thinking that people of color making fun of them carries any sort of real world impact on them like the systematic racism known by descendants of slaves, survivors of lynchings, and generational poverty that so many people of color are born into and will see for the rest of their lives. But yeah, sorry it hurt your feelings.
@I Hid Your Remote, You have the same opportunities i do. maybe try studying hard and getting into a decent school instead of crying about pretend problems on the internet.
@This Guy Fvcks, I'm white. Also, you think someone who's parents only had access to fast food, grew obese, and couldn't afford surgery so you had to work and drop out of school otherwise your siblings couldn't make ends meet has the same opportunities as you? It's easy to say that "you should just work harder" when you've never known a non-white experience. Go learn the actual experience of colored people in low income neighborhoods. Know how much they work and struggle. Pay your reparations--the money that's owed to the black community, denied and stolen from them for years. Pay your reparations and maybe your opinion will be relevant towards the actions of black people.
@I Hid Your Remote, my reparations? i haven’t done one thing wrong to anyone of color. you don’t have the right to act indecent towards another person just like i don’t. and if you really want equality then maybe start by not saying racists things just like you don’t expect me to say racist things. complete double standard. you don’t get to treat another race differently just because you’re mad about something that literally nobody here is responsible for. i don’t owe anyone any money for things i didn’t do
@This Guy Fvcks, You have an amazing opportunity as a white person in the US to help repair the damage done to black people. You have so much power in instead of just saying "I didn't do anything wrong, so why should I help?" you decide to be a part of the solution. Instead of just telling black people to work harder, you acknowledge the hard work that they've done as a whole since slavery, since Jim crow, since segregation, and you make a stance for recirculating agency and income into this population. While white people have been able to accrue generational wealth since the creation of the US, black people have only had civil rights since only 55 years ago.
So you can call it a double standard, but until the day that black people are treated fairly in this society (ie: their job applications are accepted at the same rate as white people, medical professionals don't treat the pain they report as an exaggeration, people use less words like "urban" "thug" or "inner city"...
@This Guy Fvcks, when talking about black people, and black people have the same rate of wealth in the US as white people) I'll stand by the fact that making fun of white people for doing white things is the tiniest bit of agency black people can have against white people. The race of people who don't want to find a solution for their ancestors mistakes, and instead just want to say "not my problem. Work harder."
@I Hid Your Remote, you see the issue? you want people treated fairly but you’re gonna let a group get treated unfairly in the process. just because i’m white doesn’t mean i’m not in the same impoverished situation. and just because you’re black doesn’t mean you’re entitled to receiving handouts. most of the black folks i know would be offended by that idea. i do my civic duty by treating each individual person w respect. i’m not giving anyone special treatment because of their race. you don’t treat people differently because of their skin color end of story
@This Guy Fvcks, You've done it. You've solved racial inequity. I'm done here.
@I Hid Your Remote, you think giving people money for being black solves racism? get real. don’t hand someone a fish, teach them how to fish. goodbye
@This Guy Fvcks, You ever think you can do both? That we can solve both the short term problems and the long term problems? That we can prevent immediate suffering, as well as work against it for the future?
@I Hid Your Remote, there are government welfare programs that exist that don’t view people as a skin color. what happens when their reparation check runs out and nobodies life has changed besides a few material possessions? it’s not a solution it’s a pity party. THATS offensive. maybe try reforming drug laws or making affordable housing. not cutting a check and expecting all the racists to disappear
@I Hid Your Remote, I think you're wrong about "an entire country based around" whites as the standard. Pretty sure USA is the least white out of all the white countries around. But have you been to Africa lately? It's almost an entire continent based around you as the standard.
@This Guy Fvcks, You can do both. I would love to reform drug laws, bail, minimum wage, housing prices, and so much else. But you repay your debts. America wouldn't exist without the exploitation of black people, for free. It's not a pity party, it's paying your debts
@I Hid Your Remote, paying my debts? my grandparents were italian immigrants who had nothing my dad took a 3 hour bus ride every single day to get to his college where he trained for years to become a professional who can support himself after getting loans. theres ways to improve people lives that doesn’t involve taking money out of the pockets of decent hardworking people who had literally zero to do with the mistreatment of black people end of story. paying someone a “debt” is a cop out and won’t solve a thing.
@This Guy Fvcks, You can certainly take that route. My ancestors were indentured servants in America before the American Revolution. But I have inherited the benefits and advantages of being white in America. And I know of the struggle of black people, native Americans, and other indigenous peoples. And I know it's been far worse than anything my ancestors have been through. That's the end of the story. We all struggle. That's called life. But it doesnt exempt any white person from the advantages of being white, throughout all of american history. Live your life. But I am choosing to use the wealth and power I've inherited to try to change the system into something equitable and sustainable.
@I Hid Your Remote, sounds like you have a lot of white guilt bc your family was in america during the mistreatment of black people. so if you wanna give away all your money to black people bc u feel guilty be my guest. but u have no right to tell other people what to do
@This Guy Fvcks, Not an argument. Also, if you have the right as a white person to tell black people to just work harder, I have the right to tell white people to pay what they owe. Until the day actual equity is reached, and it may never be, I will keep fighting for that. You know, most times that someone steals from another, they're taken to court. Black and indigenous people don't have such a right. So live your life. Live your life without working towards helping these people reach the justice they want. Because they just need to work harder.
@This Guy Fvcks, dude you are totally missing the point.... yikes
@I Hid Your Remote, in your quest for equality you left equality behind. how much money is enough? you just wanna pay your way out of this because you feel guilt when i as a white person have done nothing wrong to anyone. you don’t get to tell anyone what to do with their money. that doesn’t end racism that just entitles people to money they haven’t earned. but good luck trying to buy your way out of every situation without being a decent person. i see right through you
@This Guy Fvcks, Until all peoples who have been disenfranchised by white people within the US earn back every dollar that has been denied and taken from them, including property and land, then it will not be enough. I don't care if that seems impractical and implausible. If you aren't working towards seeing that justice done, you're no better than scum in my eyes. You sit on a system that has benefitted the people who look like you, and then you claim you haven't done anything wrong. While that may be true, but you haven't done anything right either. You've just been silently collecting the benefits that American society has slowly stolen for the sake of white superiority. But as I said, live your life. I can tell you what I think you should do with your money all I want. You can choose what you do with it. If that means I'm not giving you equality, I think my moral compass will survive. Call it guilt. It's irrelevant how you interpret my perspective. What matters are results.
@I Hid Your Remote, your results are totally impossible to obtain. you wanna give land and money to people but you have to take that land an money from someone else that’s not equality. you can claim black people are incapable of living their lives fully without government handouts all you want , all it’s doing is diminishing them as humans. and you’re the real scum for degrading people who are more than capable of being successful in this country. you think you’re on a moral high ground but you’re just naive and an asshole but you don’t even understand why which is the best part. you don’t get to tell me a thing you are no authority
@This Guy Fvcks, Completley ad hominem argument. "Naive" "asshole".
What I want and what so many others want is equity. Equality is what gives us equal treatment from the government. No, what I want is what so many people have been stripped of. What many people of color want is equity. Not to just toil in an uphill battle, get abused by a system which punishes poverty, end up right back to where they were, then get scolded by some libertarian on the internet that they didn't try hard enough. And no, I don't claim black people are incapable of living lives without government handouts. What I do claim is that justice and equity won't be reached until the needs of both the present and the future are met, and no more people of color are born into generational poverty forced on them by white people. I've said repeatedly, live your life. I'm not telling you do anything. Just know your indifference helps no one besides your desire to be "equal".
@I Hid Your Remote, Some folks will make it out of this poverty. Some won't. But don't you claim for a fvcking moment that it's because they were lazy.
@I Hid Your Remote, what about the white people living in poverty? or the chinese immigrants who were abused? or the italians or the irish or the polish? who were treated like garbage? it’s unfair of you to demand equality and then not give equality. THATS the issue. money isn’t the answer. and you know that now. but you won’t ever admit it
@This Guy Fvcks, Here's the fun thing. White people live in poverty in the US because they failed to thrive in a capitalist society. Most people of color live in poverty because the white elites that earned capital off of stealing from and abusing them. There needs to be a mass redistribution of wealth, specifically coming from the families that have held the most wealth for generations. Because guess what, they didn't earn those billions of dollars by being ethical entrepreneurs. I would say that any demographic that was denied wealth and property on the basis of their ethnicity deserves that capital back. And, no, money is the answer. So many families who inherited the poverty thrusted on them by the white elites would actually be able to live comfortably if they were given what they were owed. But beyond that, there needs to be massive reforms to all of our systems. It shouldn't be the case that it's a lot safer to be rich and a criminal than to be poor and innocent.
@This Guy Fvcks, Also, you've missed the mark on all of the assumptions you've made about me. You have barely interacted with my within an online argument, yet you're trying to make psychological assumptions about me. Stick to the argument, not the person.
@I Hid Your Remote, so it sounds like you’re a liberal wackjob who wants his government to take complete control over people possessions got it. also you making bold bold assumptions of why people are poor is too ridiculous to even acknowledge. you don’t know how people made their money and who was unethical. education is the key to success in the US. education and hard work. nobody is holding anyone down and anyone living in poverty deserves welfare, not bc of your skin color. you’re just a racist. a disguised racist
@This Guy Fvcks, Enjoy believing that. Also, do you understand how awful inner city education is? But I'm done even attempting. You're so quick to call someone racist because they want the justice that these people demand. All you have in your tool belt are right-wing insults. And no, I want to arm the poor and have them reclaim this wealth themselves. Yet again, another assumption.
@I Hid Your Remote, reclaim wealth? they were never entitled to it. and if they were you still are neglecting every other nationality and race that has been oppressed. you want equality but only for certain people. that’s not equality. therefore you’re just flat out wrong. you can’t assume why people are poor you simply don’t know enough end of story
@I Hid Your Remote, I don’t think “equity,” which is equality of outcome is possible. Nor is it feasible in the slightest. On top of that, when you do that, you’re basically watering someones entire identity down to their race... which is about as racist as one person can get... Equality of opportunity is a far better goal. And, while America isn’t perfect, it’s the best at equality of opportunity in the modern western world. I’m sorry man, I just disagree with you. I also like how you accuse This Guy of ad hominem when you debase his argument by declaring him as “basically scum” in your eyes. Cooool
@Switchblader, i appreciate you man. bc you’re absolutely right
@This Guy Fvcks, no problem dude. Just thought I’d way in
@Switchblader, ya merry christmas btw. glad to know there’s people who understand basic decency
@This Guy Fvcks, you’d be surprised my guy😂. Merry Christmas my dude. You deserve a fantastic coming year
@I Hid Your Remote, what makes you wrong is that you propose different standards for people based on a completely one sided view of history. You ignore or omit anything that fits outside of your preconceptions of a racial or ethnic group, and then make massive sweeping judgements about how things have to be in regards to those preconceptions. That’s called prejudice. Your solutions will not ever get you where you want them to. Equity cannot ever come by preconceptions because you fall into your own intersectional trap. Who is a bigger victim, the white woman whose great great grandfather was a slave, or the black man whose great great great grandfather impregnated his own slave? There are infinite layers to untangle, which means your judgements are never objective.
You claim that all white people owe all black people while disregarding that not all white were slave owners, and not all blacks were slaves. In fact, there have been white slaves and black slave owners.
This idea that people share guilt because of an immutable characteristic is bigotry, regardless of which way you aim it. The justifications are completely hollow.
Equity is impossible because people are not all the same, and many of the ways people differ isn’t immediately obvious just by looking at them. Separating people into race and basing our expectations off of that is just wrong on so many levels.
You’re just wrong, dude. Completely wrong.
Wow, racism. What fun.
@I Are Lebo, stereotyping and racism are two different things
@hasher2288, “one of those whities”
@I Are Lebo, u downvoted me cause you lack the knowledge that stereotyping and racism are two different things and yet you have Google in the palm of your hands.
@hasher2288, “one of those blackies”
What this represents is a clear case of racism.
I downvoted you because I think what you said is ignorant.
@I Are Lebo, Lebanese people can only fight in groups.
What this represents is a clear case of stereotyping.
@hasher2288, attributing clapping when a plane lands to white people is both stereotyping and racist. Referring to white people as “whities” is also racist.
Funny thing is? I only see black people do this. Usually in the South.
Heaven forbid anyone start a group activity that puts smiles on people’s faces and brings total strangers together for a common goal, but you do you, person from a place that still lives in grass huts. I’m sure you’re much better at society-ing
@Gothem, and flying is also terrifying. “oh thank god we didn’t plummet thousands of feet to our fiery doom... *clap clap clap*”
@Noctobo, The most fun fact about airplanes is that aeronautical engineers aren’t even 100% sure why planes fly, they just know how to do it through trial and error
@Langenator, thanks, thats pretty horrifying. Merry Christmas, yo
Finished up on a movie set with Tom. Great guy!
I see whoever wrote the tweet hasnt flown with boricuas
We always clap
In all fairness he does seem like one of those people
@Medic135, that’s misspelled
"I can't complain, you're not wrong"
“i bet this was tweeted by one of those blacks who is racist”
