Look it's a white doctor..

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 While at the doctors office with dh and ds this is what I thought I heard him say to our son. I was like WTF. This doesn't sound like dh at all. I didn't want to cause a scene so I let it go. Fast forward, we were at our apartment parking lot and I brought it up. He said "white coat". I don't know how i heard that wrong but so glad I heard it wrong and he didn't actually say that . Btw, the nurse who saw me previously was black so I thought that maybe he wasn't saying it because of that. Dh is not racist so I was so astounded. Yes, this would sound racist to me.

Oh, you mean in the dictionary? The one who changes every year? That one who used to refer to trans*genderism as a mental disease and defined a "n****r" was "dirty / low / BLACK PERSON" ?

The dictionary is not the end-all and be-all of knowledge. It is malleable, and has been before used as a tool to oppress people.


LOL no

You are off your rocker.

You're saying that it's not possible for anyone, anywhere at any time to be racist towards white people because they aren't currently being systematically oppressed in the united states?

Think about that for a minute.

And you don't follow the definition of racism in the dictionary, so where do you come up with your definition?

The Irish were treated horribly, too, for a while. But they're not discriminated against anymore on a system-wide level.



And misogyny / patriarchy can overlap with racism if on is a woman of color, but a white woman still has it better than a Black woman, even if only slightly. Interaectionality exists, yes, but a Black woman experiences sexism in combined with racism.

And you're an idiot for believing that white people can experience systemized oppression the same way "minorities" do.

How would you feel if someone bragged about how she was a proud, strong, confident white woman?

I don't know about foreign countries, but in the United States, yes, no PoC or group of PoC has the power, political or personal, to be racist against a white person or a group of white people.

"My" definition comes from actually listening to (and not ignoring, or silencing) people of color from many different communities and states. I'd add links to read more, but you people probably wouldn't even bother to click them.

Holy shit. I've seen your exact line used in the comments section of Yahoo articles dealing with race. Come to think of it, those exact words are on YouTube as well. You must have a fetish for this stuff.

Racism is a system of oppression enforced against, now and in America's past, People of Color. PoC do not have the power to enforce widespread prejudice and discrimination against someone who is white; therefore they cannot be racist. However, they can be prejudiced against white people.
