We treat racism in this country like it's a style that America went through. Like flared legs and lava lamps. Oh, that crazy thing we did. We were hanging black people. We treat it like a fad instead of a disease that eradicates millions of people. ~ Chris Rock Follow this link to find a post that contemplates the persistance of racist violence: http://www.thesociologicalcinema.com/blog/white-terror-in-the-era-of-covert-racism
I chose this Pin for my board because I think it is a great Quote. To me this quote means that if you believe that racism is no longer going on in our world you're racist. Racism is still a huge topic in today's society so the fact that you don't think it exists means that you yourself are very close minded or racist.
This is important. This is so very important. & stuff like these remind me of how I was before I knew about sites like Tumblr and Pinterest. That is where I learned why I'm so afraid of men (I have androphobic tendencies), but I don't have to be. I learned about non-binary genders, transexual people, how racism exists in modern times, how misogyny is still so prevalent...Without tumblr or Pinterest...well, there are just too many ways to end this sentence.
