To one university. The only university that offers everything I want and need.
The ONLY university I didn’t want to go to. Typical, hey?
Okay I can normally get out a script in like an hour. This has taken like two weeks and IT’S NOT DONE YET. Fucking essential question. Omg.
I might just go WATCH Peter Pan as opposed to attempting to incorporate it in this script…*cries*
FINAL COMMENT. YES. FUCKING YES.
You have no idea how offensive and irritating it is to be grouped into this whole “white privileged” bullshit. Okay, please don’t go all “Wow Mandy, that’s really fucking insensitive and racist this is a touchy subject, blahdiddy blah blah blah” on me. Because yes, it is touchy. But I think a lot of people don’t recognize that it’s touchy for EVERYONE, not just those whose ancestors were victims of slavery. Hear me out here, and please try to understand what I’m saying.
I related a lot to that final comment. I myself have been the target of racism before (yes, a white girl. Being bullied because she’s white. Try not to faint, it happens), so first off this whole “white people don’t understand” shit can stop right now. My family too is primarily from Ireland. And, just like the person who wrote that final comment on that post, we were dirt fucking poor and crossed over to the New World to escape the shitty treatment we received at the hands of the British. See, this is the bit that doesn’t get taught in school here. Before slavery of Africans and all that happened, slavery of the Irish happened. I made a big long post on it once upon a time, so I’ll spare the details. But in case you’ve ever wondered why there’s almost no Celtic culture and language left (on a global scale, mind), that would be why. Because, for all intents and purposes, the Celtic Isles were taken over and used, manipulated, and exploited until they relented to assimilation and finally became slaves to the goddamn Brits. See, I can’t speak my own language. In all likelihood, I never will be able to. No one speaks it anymore, it’s dead. I can’t worship my deities, my religion is dead too. Half of my beloved motherland is still part of Britain, for Christ’s sake.
So I’m saying enough. What “white privilege” do I have? Oh, right. NONE. If you are under the impression that darker-skinned ethnic groups are the only ones who suffered oppression, you are sorrily mistaken.
And the worst part? Yeah, it’s that ya’ll are fucking hypocrites. Because now you’re oppressing me and people like me today, for crimes that people who weren’t even our ancestors committed yesterday.
Idk, it just irks the hell outta me. I can’t even word it properly.
Just food for thought, you know?
I’m just sick of being classified and having assumptions (rude and racist assumptions) made of me simply because of the colour of my skin. In this day and age, I honestly don’t think it should matter what the fuck colour your skin is, you know?
