The world does not enter a parallel dimension every time a Person of Color is mean to a white person. We don’t enter an alternate universe where white people are oppressed for being white in America. It just does not happen. We don’t for that moment slip into a world where being white is a disadvantage in this country and your experience reflects that of most or even many white people when PoC bully white people.
It isn’t a racial experience for a reason… You do all realize that PoC going to white schools are going to mostly white schools, right? Not “schools” not “normal schools” but WHITE schools? Where our bullying and racist experiences actually reflect the reality of our racial oppression and aren’t just people being mean to us for being different but they’re backed by historical and present systemic institutional and socialized racism— you get that, right?
You also get that Black kids who bully white kids are still experiencing racism every single day of their lives since birth, right? You do realize that racism isn’t “that one time” or “that period of time”— it’s an existence, right? You do realize those Black kids don’t see themselves on TV and you do realize that chances are your Black school wasn’t funded well for a reason, right? You do realize that they plan to send most of those Black kids at your Black school to prison before they’re 25, right? You do realize they have less than half the chances you have of getting a job when they exit school, right? You do realize they probably get racially profiled on their ways home from school, right? You do realize they’re reading racist white washed history books alongside you while they’re in school, right? Do you?

Stats Pr0n of the Day: U.S. Map of Hate Speech on Twitter
Since June 2012, Dr. Monica Stevens of Humboldt State University in California has been mapping more than 150,000 geotagged tweets that contain homophobic, racist or abliest language. The result is the Geography of Hate, an interactive map of the U.S. which reveals the hotspots of “hate tweets” across the country. A deeper analysis of the project is available at Floating Sheep.
