Why black people get to say things white people get called “racist” for

I dread reading the comments section on a black-themed video or post these days. Yet, my love of comment reading propels me to click on “Comments” anyways. *sigh* When will I learn?

Without fail, there are tons of offended white people crying racism every time. It really makes me lose faith in white people ever getting it.

“But if there was a video on sacrifices white parents made for their kids, it’d be racist.”

A snapshot of disheartening comments representing a popular sentiment on a video Buzzfeed put up called “Children From Black Families Reveal Sacrifices Their Parents Made.”

“If there was a ‘Whitetown,’ we’d be called racists!”

Key&Peele did a comedy skit called “Negrotown” that depicted a fictional all-black town free of racism and discrimination. Some commenters noted that a “Whitetown” would be racist. There are hundreds of “Whitetowns” already in existence across America and the world. Besides, the point was that black people wouldn’t have to deal with the bullshit of racism. What would be the point in a Whitetown skit?

It’s not like they’re wrong. But they’re not right, either.

I’m going to focus specifically on some things that black people get away with saying, but white people cannot. A lot of black people say offensive things about white people openly and candidly all the time. White people are so annoying and ignorant. White people are so dumb lol.

Let a white person tweet, “Black people are so dumb lol” and all hell would break loose. Thousands of black people would attack him and he could even lose his job! A white person could say, “Black people are just not attractive,” and she’d definitely be called racist. But in the reverse situation, not so much. How is that fair?

It’s not fair. But you know. . .
