On Whiteness

DISCLAIMER …even though everything within me is telling me not to post this, not to be angry, not to say these things, not to stoop to the level of “white equality,” i’m doing it anyway for those of you who cannot scream in rage because the powers that be will not hear you due to their racism blinding them to your voice. …perhaps they will not hear me either because i am a minority female as well, but i am part of a different group, and therefore, may be able to say what everyone wants to say but can’t because…well, it’ll upset the whites. …but perhaps it’s also time for me to take advantage of my racial positioning in this racist country and say whatever the fuck i want because maybe…just maybe…due to my race…i’ll get away with it. …in short…perhaps it’s time to use the same language that whites use to talk about white people.

You were warned. Read at your own risk.

…to those of you whites out there who are perhaps insulted by being called white or insulted by being lumped in with “those types of white people” or who are insulted by being labeled as a racist for being white, FUCK YOU. If you’re white, you’re racist. If you’re white, you’re a murderer. If you’re white, you’re an oppressor. If you’re white, you’re an enemy of progress. If you’re white, you’ve done nothing to truly earn anything you’ve been GIVEN. If you’re white, you’re lazy as fuck cause you’re always willing to pay someone or enslave someone (with money unearned but given, remember) to do the work for you, while you take all the credit and the profits.

That is the definition of white written in the blood of white behavior. Whether or not you’re actively racist, an actual murderer, whether or not you “embody whiteness,” in the eyes of your own white world, you are white according to the color of your skin. Silence is compliance, and your complicity and overwhelming ignorance is disgusting (and you white friends of mine out there have not been given a “pass” because we’re friends). DO THE FUCKING WORK!

And yea, trust me, I fully understand that irritating idiom that I’ve had spit in my face time and time again that “You catch more bees with honey than vinegar,” but guess what type of people say this sorta shit, WHITE PEOPLE.

I’m at a point now where I feel as though I shouldn’t know or associate myself with any white people, but my lifemate and bodybuddy is white, AND HE HAS DONE THE WORK, and he continues to do the hard work of understanding his new position and responsibility in this world.

And guess what, his new role, his new responsibility means no longer being on top, no longer getting things he hasn’t earned, no longer being the representative of competence, no longer given the credit for work he has done. My white person has done the hard work, has cried tears at the world he grew up in, has extricated himself from a well-off family because they continue to prove that they care more about their white selves than about equality and justice for all. I don’t need to cut him out of my life because he supports me and everyone else trying to fight for their freedom. I can’t say this about all the white people I know, unfortunately.

So yea, I am about to write off all white people (my white parents included [yes, I’m a 100% Korean Adoptee]) because this is just about the last time we will need them. And the only reason why I do not feel compelled to continue to kiss white ass is because white people need to vote for Biden this cycle for their own well-being.

Don’t get it crooked, most white people will not be voting for Biden out of some newly envisioned utopia of an America where American descendants of slaves and all other oppressed groups become equal. Most white people will “do the right thing” this election due to one fact, and one fact only: 45 is destroying their ECONOMIC way of life. Most white people will “do the right thing,” this time, whether or not it’s in the name of racial equality because their financial necks are officially on the line now.

And so, you can write them off because next time, in the next presidential election and every election to follow, we will not need them, because they will be the minority. Yes, I know this is not the right thing to say, but I do not care. Why should I?

This is why, if you are white, you’d better get on this racial equality bandwagon, because every single person who knows you knows whose side you’re on, right now, and soon, being white, a descendant* of murderers, will be a liability. So befriend some minorities now, if you’re lucky enough to know one, before it’s too late.

And yea, I’m henceforth judging white people by the color of their skin because that’s white equality.

Oh and because when it comes to mass shootings and whether or not my life is in danger, whiteness is synonymous with murderer. So, yea, if you’re “white” you might also want to figure out a way to extricate yourself from whiteness and what it means to be white because when the world sees you, they see the color of your skin, and the color of your skin is white, and white equals murder.

Oh, you don’t know how to be something other than white?, oh wah, boo boo, Welcome to the Club.

*don’t come at me with whatever asian stereotypes you think will make asians “as bad as whites” …i know them all…white people have already told them all to me.
