Let's just say I hit that point at my job where all the white people thought I was cool enough to bring all their grievences (sp? Or worse, who wants to have the integrity and courage to hold someone accountable for something like racism. ) against black people to me and demanded that I bless them with eternal knowledge to understand it or change all the behavior of black people. You're on point with the accountable approach - can't squirm out of that one, esp if there is physical evidence to support..racist do learn very early to master the art of the squirm. Keep up the works guys I've you guys to blogroll.| would you mind which blog platform you're ? I've loaded your blog in 3 and I must say this blog loads a lot then most. Either you're lucky and you get a person who's willing to listen, or you're unlucky. This is mandatory watching for everyone to understand as you said to have a STRATEGY to approach the am I a racist conversation. I'm not sure if this is a issue or something to do with compatibility but I I'd post to let you know.
People get more upset about the possibility they might have been called racist than the fact that their actions are racist as hell. They'll harp and linger on all their deeds in the past and what clubs they belong to and who their friends are. I GUARANTEE the ALL of us still have some scar from k-12 that we carry around with us because unlike the scratch or cut you got, "word wounds" DO NOT heal as cleanly. JSmooth - those are wise word tools for MANY situations. I believe if people would just take 2 seconds to engage their "brain-mouth filter" before saying ANYTHING the world would be a much better place. of course its not the fault of any individual white folks, and of course they should try to examine how white supremacism has shaped their beliefs and relationships, and listen to people of color to support the struggle against white privilege, but until that has gone away they're still very much a part of that racism. i dont like some white boy telling me how i should be having conversations about race, especially since you're convienently talking about it in a way that excuses you from being implicated as a racist. Difficult, but we all need to enhance our control and focus when these issues do arise. Yes indeed accountability is what it has to be about. This is fantastic, and I think it will be great for a discussion in my class. Someone in my group shared this with us so I came to .
It's the only way to go past the fact of racism to the healing process. I feel like this is a step in the direction of focusing less on the individual (where we get into the whole identity thing, which is problematic because while people can be agents of racism or even identify as racist, racism itself resides in society) while at the same time holding people accountable, as you said, for the actions and their real effect on real people and real life.
However, it works in the context of that case, since the "Yokai" is revealed to just be superstition, and is actually a huge chunk of gold that drove the villagers to fight each other over it.
With California having a fairly famous gold rush, it becomes Fridge Brilliance on the part of the localization team. Your Honor, what do you think about the trope page?
I think many WPs (obviously not all) are so very sensitive about this issue that the mere insinuation that you might be thinking about considering the idea that they are racist just leads to a downward spiral of the conversation and the knee-jerk reactions that CSRealist cites at the end of his/her comment.
I could have so used this "how-to" guide last week.
In Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies, one case takes place in a traditional Japanese village where a Yokai spirit was supposedly sealed.
