I can’t believe we live in a world where someone’s right to make a joke supersedes the right of a child to be treated like a human being worthy of respect.
A white man’s right to get praise through laughter is more important than the feelings and humanity of this young black child.
I just talked to a friend who works for the Onion..
the person who did that tweet is in DEEP SHIT.
keep up with contacting and writing to the offices.
Glad to hear it! I hope that tweet follows them for the rest of their life.
Here’s the email if y’all need it: email@example.com
OFF WITH THEIR FUCKING HEAD
I WANT BLOOD!
good. after years and years of loving/appreciating ‘the onion’ i was ready to drop it like a fucking rock after that stupid fucking tweet.
Why do white people thing telling poc how racist their family is funny?
How is your family actively hating my existence a joke?
I wrote a bunch of things in response to this and tumblr fucking deleted it:
They do this as a way of exerting their power and privilege over you
They do it to let you know that if someone says something racist they won’t respond to it at all
they’re telling you that they will date racists
work for racists
and probably have racist friends and children
and not do a damn thing about it but tell you about it like it doesn’t matter
because you don’t matter
