Systematic oppression and police brutality are real ongoing issues in this country. Racism is as much an issue in this exact moment as it has ever been in history. The first amendment of our constitution is being stepped over by law enforcement as tear gas and rubber bullets are being fired into unarmed crowds that are exercising their right to peacefully protest. Journalists and news reporters are currently being arrested and detained for doing nothing more than sharing with the world the situation that is currently Ferguson, MO. Mike Brown was unarmed and murdered in cold blood, but this is somehow justified because his killer wore a badge? This is our country right now. Pray for Ferguson. Spread the word. Everyone deserves to know that this is where our tax dollars go, and most importantly that this is the way that our brothers and sisters are being treated because of the color of their skin.

racism has nothing to do with ‘systematic oppression’

it’s literally being one race and hating another. That’s it. 

Stop saying reverse racism doesn’t exist. 

But let me take you to back to the root words.

Racism is Race + Power. Racism is RACE + ISM.

Now lets put those two things together.

Race: is a classification system used to categorize humans into large and distinct populations or groups by anatomical, cultural, ethnic, genetic,geographical, historical, linguistic, religious, and/or social affiliation.

Ism: a distinctive doctrine, theory, system, or practice

Now let’s put them together. by definition race is a classification SYSTEM and now we add ”ism”, which means that RACISM is a practice, system, theory or doctrine of that classification SYSTEM.

Someone being mean to you is not racism, that is prejudice. Learn the difference, boo

Just in case anyone forgot.
