Anonymous said: So, this is a legit question, and I'm really not trying to troll, but do you not like white people or something? And when you say "orientalist" is that like a weeaboo? I mean, obviously it's not the same thing, but are they similar ideas? Promise I'm not trolling, you're getting a lot of hate that I don't think you deserve, but your blog is a little hard to figure out.
I have no problem with white people as individuals. I have a problem with privilege, with white supremacy, and with white people who don’t realize they are privileged in a colorist, Western-centric, hierarchical, white supremacist world and that regardless if they like it or not, there is a historical context of shitty race relations that justifiably put them on a lot of POC’s shitlist.
In the instances when POC say shit like “Oh I can’t stand white folk” or “Damn white people”, they aren’t saying “Oh I think they are inferior, I want to humiliate them, abuse them, enslave them and wipe out their people!”, they’re saying “Damn, after a couple hundred years of white people thinking I’m inferior, humiliating me, abusing me, enslaving me, and trying to wipe out my people, I don’t wanna deal with them.” The context is completely different.
Weeaboos are a form of orientalism, yes.
