That would be Ria Angels here. Such ignorance…
She storms in acting like a victim.
How dare we declare what that flag represented! We’re being so unfair to white people. Good thing she’s whitesplaining these things to us.
Honoring those who tried to rebel against America because of slavery…
…which is precisely what it was… is somehow something we shouldn’t be against. Because that makes us hateful. That’s what she’s saying.
At this point, Jimmy, the original poster, has not taken her side at all.
He’s liked my replies, not hers. He’s even used the swastika to smack her stupid point down. But now she’s about to go off into white supremacist talking point land to make us the ‘real racists,’ and you know that bullshit won’t fly with me.
She never answered.
Here, Ria, let me smart-splain things to you.
You see, “pride” isn’t a person declaring themselves superior. Gays aren’t declaring themselves superior to straights. Blacks having a history month aren’t doing so to declare themselves superior to whites.
These things are the downtrodden’s way to declare themselves equal.
People always try to belittle gay pride by saying being gay isn’t an accomplishment, but pride doesn’t mean proud of accomplishment alone. It is also a declaration of self esteem, in rebellion against those who want you to feel lesser because of it.
Now Ria, who has tried to make you feel inferior for the white color of your skin? Nobody. But those with dark skin cannot say nobody’s made them feel that way. Because they have. Their history was neglected from our history books, which is why they wanted/needed a history month. Gay history is also absent. But if you dare tell me you need a straight history month to become equal with gays, you can seriously fuck yourself hard.
What need have you for a declaration of white pride since nobody’s tried to make you a lesser citizen for your whiteness? None. That’s a one-way street, not a two-way street, by any fucking means whatsoever. To say otherwise is to demonstrate ridiculous misunderstanding of your own nation’s history, and is frighteningly similar to the talking points of white supremacists as they try to make the case that they have to fight the blacks and the gays so as to retain whites’ place in the world, as though anybody’s trying to destroy white people.
In other words, you’re just trying to make yourself the victim, and us the ‘real racists,’ and that’s the same tactic every fucking bigot makes.
You don’t like me going all “superior” on your ass, you brought it on yourself. You revealed yourself to be a person so ignorant in her privilege that she needed a rebuking.
Now, take your whitesplaining self to a library and learn some shit. And until then…
