For all you kids worried that the choices you make at 18 determine the rest of your life, please keep in mind that Retta (Donna from Parks and Rec) is a Duke-trained chemist who spent her 20s making HIV medication.

Thank God We Solved Racism…

This epitomizes why the politics of respectability is so pointless and a ridiculous way to solve racism.
O’Reiley himself claims that if black men dress right, stay in school, and etc that they will be treated with respect. And yet, he blatantly disrespects a Columbia Professor dressed in a suit by reducing him to a cocaine dealer. This is how white people work. They give conditions for you to be treated with humanity, but even when you meet those arbitrary conditions you’re still treated as less than human.
And black people need to become wiser to these tactics. Because then Don Lemon wouldn’t have made the silly statements he made. 

Bill O’Reily strikes me as some kind of sick joke

"This is how white people work" You’re inferring that all white people act the same way is racist as well. I would have agreed with you fully if you had not said that one little phrase. Now all I can see is that YOU are racist towards white people. Which would put you in the same boat as Bill O’Reiley.

Reverseracism is a myth. Racism is institutional. ALL white people benefit from racism. Most of you participate in subtle racism and if you don’t, you still benefit from racism. Most of you are ignorant to the fact that the world is not a ‘post racial’ society. Most of you are either : active bigots, timid bigots, fair weather bigots.
Active Bigot – “All-weather bigot" – Example: Openly racist and makes racial remarks regardless of audience.
Timid Bigot – prejudice but afraid of the consequences of discrimination.
Fair-weather Liberal (Reluctant Liberal) – Discriminates without having personal prejudice. Will not call out another person for being racist, will usually laugh at racist jokes/actions. These people almost always think they are not “racist”.

It’s amazing how many whites try to act like saying they participate in racism is racist. I got so many messages about what I said on this post lol.
It floors me because they try to act like they care about justice but all it shows is how little empathy they have for real victims of racism. Accusing people of drug dealing based on race is in no world equal to telling Black folks to stay vigilant for the whites (in the legal system and out) who do this to us and participate in the maintenance of the prison industrial complex.

This post never has the other half where Marc says “And you look like a cokehead” or something along those lines to Bill. And he had the nerve to get offended. White people if you don’t want to be seen as racist how about you call out other whites for doing racist shit? How about you acknowledge the fact that this man just looked a black man in the face and said he looked like a drug dealer because he was black? How about that?
