HOLY SHIT I NEED TO GO TO BED, NIGHT!!!
I'm having trouble understanding how discrimination is different then racism. I can see how not all discrimination is racist but isn't all racism discrimination?
Think of it in terms of levels or grades
racism > discrimination > prejudice
and understand that there are different types of racism, you have interpersonal racism, institutional racism, and systemic racism.
but for the sake of this conversation, let’s keep it simple.
Prejudice is when a person holds illogical negative views about a particular subject. This subject could literally be anything.
Discrimination is when a person let’s their personal prejudices manifest by actively acting in detriment towards whatever they’re prejudice against.
Racism is a system of societal wide discrimination created by those who hold society power and privilege.

my ancestors did everything in their POWER to make sure their issues were black as the fertile earth.
my grandmother saw her reflection, grabbed the nearest black man, and was like "No more"
I missed a “Congoid” with the “most random mix” today…?
I went and got my titty pierced and it looks like all hell broke loose since I came back. What in the world?
I HATE HATE HATE when mixed people think their is something “weird” or “random” with there mix. like…that is such a WHITE belief, whatever you’re mixed with is “interesting”.
you can tell she was raised by a white woman forreal, because if they ever get a hint of what my ancestors are they’re always like “wooooow, what a strange mix!!! how weird!”
