Guilt doesn’t transfer from generation to generation. I am not magically accountable for something my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather MIGHT have done. Also;

I love that there’s a blog called “this is white culture” that is solely devoted to bad things white people did, not their cultures at all. So I guess I can make a blog called “this is black culture” and post gang and crime records and that’s 100% okay. Or “this is Muslim culture” and make it all about terrorism.
But wait, you cry. Not all black people are criminals and not all Muslims are terrorists. That’s unfair! And racist!
WELL GOLLY GEE DO YOU THINK SO? Because saying that all white people are responsible for the Atlantic slave trade sounds pretty racist to me, given that, you know, that was between the African slaveholders and the British and Americans and had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with my ancestors, who were incredibly poor farmers and serfs from Ireland and Lithuania who had to flee to America at around the turn of the century (by which time slavery had already been abolished in the US) because they were being treated like slaves. Even if they had been living in America at the time when slavery was legal they wouldn’t have been able to afford a slave; in fact they probably would have been working with them in the fields and treated about the same, since the first slaves in America were actually white serfs. But please, tell me more about how dirty my hands are because of circumstances surrounding my birth that I could not control and continue to treat me differently based on the color of my skin without actually knowing anything about my heritage, I’m sure that isn’t racist at all!
There’s an unnerving tendency on Tumblr to generalize and assume that the actions of certain members of a given group are the actions of the entire group and everyone therein. Every day I run into some post about “Men do this” or “White people do this” or “Whovians do this” or “Hipster blogs do this” or “Christians do this” or “Atheists do this” or “Vegans do this” or whatever. I think it’s of paramount importance to bear in mind that such designations contain multitudes of people, all with their own virtues, flaws, and choices. While I’m not saying we should ignore groups, affiliations, and other such classifications, it is my fervent belief that individuals are more important than all of them by far.
This is not to say that historical atrocities like the one pictured above should be ignored or dismissed, however! But the distinction is this: as, for example, the fellow of German descent that I am, I should certainly be mindful of the part Germany played in World War I and World War II and reflect on its significance to the past, present, and future. But to assume that I am somehow culpable for the actions of, say, the Gestapo would be quite an unfortunate mistake, and one of just the sort that I think we all need to avoid making.
Certainly, too, there are long-established and unjust discrepancies that place one group above another—the original post about slavery is a good example of this. And I’m not saying that we should pretend those don’t exist, either. But even those systems were created by individuals. Individuals, I might add, who set out with the idea that everyone in one group was automatically better than everyone in another. Really, no matter what the justification, I can never condone blanket judgments of a population of people based solely on the basic facts of their identity (unless it’s the International Association of Highly Impolite Murderers with Bad Taste in Music or something, I suppose).
Just my two cents.
Yeah okay sure, except: THESE PROBLEMS EXIST TODAY. RACIAL PROBLEMS PERSIST TODAY. And we white people spend way too much fucking time going, “Well, /I’m/ not part of the problem,” and not enough time listening to the people who are being treated fucking horribly and finding out what we can do to /help fix the problem/ that, by nature of the system which /puts us at the top/, we are part of whether we want to be or not. That’s what privilege /is/ — it’s the accidents of birth that give you a greater shake than other people due to /their/ circumstances. Ignoring that doesn’t make it go away; saying, “Well, I’ll just treat everyone like individuals!” erases the community/group experiences that they share; and, oh yeah, MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A FUCKING ASSWIPE.
The person right above me makes a point re: descendents not being directly culpable for the sins of their ancestors (and holy /fuck/ Godwin’s Law got invoked early in this thread). But then they proceed to completely miss the fucking point. WHITE PEOPLE BENEFIT FROM THIS SYSTEM. BY EXISTING. I don’t care if you didn’t fucking put the system in place (and oh, yeah, ‘it was individuals who put those systems in place!’ Fuck right off, white people history is /defined/ by us going around, beating the shit out of people, stealing their culture from them and forcing ours down their throat, all while thinking ourselves superior to the supposed ‘savages’ we were looking down on), the system is there, it benefits you, and if you’re not doing everything you can to dismantle it then you are part of the problem. The end.
Signed, a white person sick of hearing, ‘all white people suck,’ not because I want to go, ‘But we’re not all like that!’ but because we fucking are and I want us not to be but y’all keep being fucking idiots.
PS: not apologising for my anger because I am fucking angry and y’all need to sit down and shut up.
I would attempt to convince you that I was trying to make a much broader point about all generalizations being harmful, rather than specifically address the race issue, but honestly, you’ve made me deeply regret sticking a toe into this discussion in the first place. It was only a matter of time before I got a reply like this, honestly.
