So I was filling out a job app just now and these are my options.
I want to draw your attention to what America considers “WHITE”.
Original people’s from Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa
the Middle East.
This is what Black People mean when we talk about the problems of systematic racism, rewriting of history in books, PoC erasure from subtle normal everyday things. You tell a lie long enough, it will become truth. The original people were in Africa meaning they were Black not white. You are not white if you’re in the Middle East, North Africa is still Africa is still very much filled with Black people. This is what casual everyday racism looks like, in systematic forms, not long before our history books start to look like this. The Texas Board of Education (X) already wants to rewrite history of Black People being enslaved, and change it to them being indentured servants.
When Black People talk about all the ways white supremacy through racism effects us, whether it be Cultural Appropriation, Whitewashing, Colonialism, Gentrification. Erasure, etc this is how it gets reinforced how it’s normalized, in everyday societal culture. Simple things like this, gets stated like it’s truth, like it’s fact. The problem of things like this, the problem of myths and miscommunication is that it leads to things like PoC erasure, it leads to accepting common knowledge that is born out of academic racism, like the lie that the Egyptians are not Black, when they in fact were Black. Racist common knowledge like that becomes truth in society because that’s how humans are. Truth that reinforces bigger overt ideologies based in white supremacy like Black People not contributing anything of value, or deeming as cultural to humanity, because Black People are just degenerate darkies, who are sub human unintelligent creatures. Simple shit like this, everyday casual racism like this impacts the overt racial oppression that PoC face.
LOL WHITE PEOPLE THINK THEY WERE THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF NORTH AFRICA? I’m tired of white folks and lies… The Egyptians were Black and Spice-less food does not taste good.
There are some things you can’t share without ending up l i k i n g each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.
