Since I’ve been reblogging cut dog videos lately, I might as well include my own video.

I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:
I feel like the majority of this comes from personal choice rather than “institutionalized racism”. Granted, the white ex con being 5% more likely to get a job is not personal choice, though I wonder of that stat is actually significant. (Not significant as in how we use the word day to day. I’m talking about the statistical meaning of the word here).
I mean, come on! A white getting a degree so and so % more than a “poc” cannot be contributed to racism, but rather the personal choice of the individual people. Same goes for people to going to jail or prison. Like, does it ever occur to you that MAYBE people of color commit more crimes? Oh no, I said it. Give me hate all you want, but it’s an alternate theory to consider when putting together this whole comic. As to not commit a fallacy in your argument, you must consider all possibilities. And I can guarantee that you don’t, nor ever will.
Further, can we just talk about the whole media bias bullshit? Because I’m pretty sure the last major media coverage of an interracial homicide was the George Zimmerman case (at least that’s the last I heard of) wherein the media tried so desperately to portray a Hispanic man as “white” in order to prove some sort of white on black hate crime.
Like, seriously. GTFO with this bullshit.
is this even real life? did you even take understand what this comic is about? were you too busy trying to make it seem like white people dont naturally have a privilege that poc dont have? have you possibly considered that poc are more likely to not be successful because of INSTITUTIONALIZED RACISM?instead of it being a personal fucking choice? i have personally seen people not get jobs because of their race, people with experience who wanted to be waiters but didnt have “the look”, the white look, so they made them dish washers. i live in a city with the majority population being black or hispanic, ive seen cops break up groups of black kids at malls and ignore groups of white kids. i actually KNOW a white kid who got caught with weed in his car and didnt get arrested, he got let off with a warning, this kid had a record too, he crashed his car and lied and said it got stolen, cop gave him a second chance. i KNOW black kids who have been arrested the first time they got caught without a previous record.
you choose to believe that you are not privileged no matter how much proof is given because you dont want to feel like youve done anything wrong, maybe you havent, but choosing to ignore these *VERY REAL THINGS* and choosing to hide behind the thoughts like “MAYBE people of color commit more crimes?” is not only ignorant and childish but it also harmful and contributes to institutionalized racism.
