"Steven Universe panders to the social justice crowd too much!"
Translation: “I don’t like it because there are POC characters who don’t rely on stereotpes for their characterization, fat characters who aren’t just walking punchlines and female characters who are well written!”
It makes it clear when people use this as a “criticism” against the show.
just fyi the confederate flag doesn't represent racism. it;s about Southern culture
i mean yes it represents a part of southern culture, the racism
That might be what it meant years ago, and yes, some people still see it and use it as that, but that’s not what it means now. What it means to us southerners now is that we are proud of what we’ve overcome and made of the south. We got over the racism. We got over all of the damn racism that was making the south a horrible place. WE GREW. We grew and now we are proud of the place we call home, where everyone can have their fried chicken and sweet tea in peace and get along. Sure, some people separate themselves still, but it’s not forced. We are damn proud of where we’re from and what we’ve accomplished so don’t you dare say that the confederate flag means racism anymore. We aren’t proud of our ancestors’ wrongdoings, but we are proud of how we put it in the past and are keeping it there.
today in my history class at my college in south alabama, my professor asked a black girl if her hair was real, asked a black guy if he plays basketball, and asked another black guy (whose shoe was untied) if all black people don’t tie their shoes, scoffed when the boy didn’t answer, and said “dumbasses”
racism is alive and well here in the south thanks for asking
saying the south - or any part of the country - is over anti-black racism is itself anti-black and racist, and is particularly egregious and offensive given current affairs, spandex-tight-turns. if you really weren’t racist, you’d understand why flying a flag that even you admit has been and continues to be seen as symbol of racism and that is considered offensive and alienating by the large majority of black americans is itself a racist act, no matter the meaning that you personally assign to the symbol in question.
when it comes to communicating ideas, words and symbols mean what they are perceived to mean. 2/3 of black people perceive the confederate flag as a racist symbol. would you truly argue it isn’t racist to ignore those feelings? can you come up with any conceivable reason why southerners would attempt to communicate that they have "put [racism] in the past and are keeping it there" by using a symbol that otherwise means quite literally the direct opposite, particularly given that so many people perceive it in that directly opposite way?
being black is really wonderful and convenient bc i can just be sitting here in my room like this
and whenever people come looking for me to do stuff i dont even really have to hide all i have to do it turn off my light and
and then when they leave i just
