Don’t say I didn’t warn you
That’s it I’m done. I have kept quiet for too long and now it is time for me to open up. Obviously not everyone is going to agree with me, but guess what…I don’t agree in other peoples opinions all the time either and that’s life. Before I really dive I would just like to say conversing with me about what I am saying is cool however I don’t wanna hear you justify your reasons with religion…or saying “grow up.”
For the past few days, yes plural, I have been reading AND watching some racist and horribly bias information. The bias information that I saw…well one of the videos, was from a news channel, maybe you can guess which one. But it was horrible. Want me to say it in Spanish? Horrible.
Anyway, I’m not here to talk about the video, but I’ll try to put it in here. I am here to talk about Tik Tok or is it TikTok… I don’t know, it doesn’t matter, unless one is the app and the other is a famous Ke$ha song.
I don’t really watch the “funny” videos or skits or dances or the fun stuff, I just go to the videos that talk about race and gender and the juicy stuff…you know where the ignorant people hang-out.
Lets talk about the first video and the comments. Okay… Tik Tok or whatever, videos are very short so the creator cant get in much information. The video was a white person (very important info considering the comments) teaching other white people how to not say the n-word in a song. So she played a song…that has the n-word in it…and she sang the lyrics however whenever THE WORD came up she closed her mouth. I think the caption was something like “see its not that hard.” I screenshotted comments but not even the caption.
First off, in my opinion again MY opinion is that if a person is not black then they should not say the word…I highly recommend the n-word to not be in your vocabulary…I highly recommend for you to leave the n-word to the people its about. AND I especially don’t like it when that certain and hopefully small population of white people sing the word in songs…I understand that other races sing it too, but on Tik Tok it’s not much of a problem on my “for you page.” Plus most of us can agree that if anyone was going to be ripped apart for saying the word in a song it wouldn’t be the Asians or the…you get the point…but it would be the White people.
Let me share some comments with you regarding the video:
- “Why do people care so much? If u aren’t talking abt a black person I don’t understand the problem.”
- “You’re white you have no offense to it, and its a word not used in any way to offend people. get over ya self.”
- “If black ppl get mad when another race says it then they shouldn’t say it themselves if it’s “too offensive” .”
- “Its just a word calm down people”
- “I honestly think it’s okay for people to say it in songs and in a non offensive way!!”
- “but if it offends them so much why do they say it to?”
- “I’m black and I can say, most of us don’t even care like-“
Yes this is all correct. No you don’t have to agree with me. But you will have to agree with me when I say the last comment (#7) is a no no. I don’t remember there being a world-wide vote amongst all black people to elect that person to speak for black people, but if there was a vote going on then they need to recount because I actually know a few people who didn’t vote.
From the beginning I was saying that my thoughts are all my opinion in fact it’s all over this site, but I guess this guy has the almighty opinion of “most” black people.
I totally understand why some people and these commenting people think that its okay to say the word in a song. I get it…I do…The word has changed its meaning to them, meaning they see the word as any other and if they are asked to define it they may say “brother” or “close friend” or something like that. But to plenty of other people who like to hang out in the past… they don’t think the word has changed its meaning from when it first originated. So even though they may think the word has changed meaning and is no longer offensive, it still is. AND the artist who sings the song may not be saying the word offensively, as the white people say, the ARTIST is still the one who sings the song. We all know what happened with Kendrick Lamar and that audience member who thought it would be cool to sing the n-word…
The second video I watched was again a white person actually telling other white people that some white people don’t think that white privilege exists. How many times can you put “white” in a sentence?
Here are some comments to respond to…yay:
- “ALL lives matter”
- “we are not the ones who need to get over it”
- “okay well if yall are so set on white privilege why am I not r i c h” (yes this is how it was written however there were emojis in it that I can’t put in)
- “affirmative action is colored privilege”
- “I mean white privilege isn’t real but go ahead believe it I suppose if it makes you feel better”
- “So there are no homeless white people and every rich person is white”
- “Yet people have no proof that white “privilege” exists lmfao”
- “If IM so privileged then why aren’t I rich? Oh yea, because systemic oppression isn’t real anymore”
I haven’t even stepped into my career yet and I already want to retire.
I am 100 percent sure that the BLM movement knows that “all lives matter” and to be honest I don’t see why that comment even fits into what that girl was saying in the video. I also got a reply from number five after I left a emoji under her comment. The emoji wasn’t “bad” but I’m not gonna say what it was.
I cant exactly type what white privilege means to me…I mean the definition its more of an experience that doesn’t work in my interest…of course. To me it’s like going into a store like CVS or Walgreens to buy hair products and only having this small section for ethnic hair…and I mean small. Over time since I was younger, the shelves have definitely grown, but there still aren’t many options. For my family, at least my mom and I because my brother will use whatever we buy and my dad doesn’t have any hair, we have to buy products online or drive a few cities over if we want to be in an actual store that caters more to our type of hair rather than…other hair.
And being honest here…White privilege to me also means they get to choose what fights they include themselves in whereas, at least in the black community, black people fight for each other even when they are guilty…the point is a lot of black people force other black people into a fight where they might not even want to be in, but they have to do it…I guess that’s how to put it.
O.J is a great example. It was turned into a case about race, so what do they do…they make the jury black.
Anyway, its bed time. I got school tomorrow. You have bills to pay and food to eat so I will go.
wwwaaaiiittt— If yall made it this far I would just like to say that the video that I was talking about in the beginning is not available. Because the guy James Allsup…just got banned from YouTube…I think yesterday. There are articles about it from 8 hours ago but I think he was banned from YouTube before then. Anyway, he is basically a white supremacist and likes to be called an “American nationalist” I guess. But a lot of people in his comment section of that video that I was upset about were saying a bunch of racial derogatory terms…the most popular “darkies” and watching/listening to everything he was saying was sad and disgusting at the same time. Some other comments were saying how they wanted to get away from diversity as much as possible. I would suggest maybe Vermont or maybe those states in the middle that no one pays much attention to…but just not near me.
Yeah so good night.
