mommalovesme: White people, shut the fuck up.

I still cant get over this ridiculous white paranoia that just because black people and other minorities get admitted to colleges and graduate schools, means they must be discriminating against white people and that white people are in some kind of danger because higher institutions have a committment to diversity (which they read as "committment to race" which to them means anyone they can detect is not fully white.) Having been admitted to some great grad schools, I still have to put up with this bullshit, mostly on messageboards and even in public where people assume that (1) if they have pictures of colored people on their student websites, they must have something against white students, even though most of the school is actually white and that (2) if they are admitting "raced" students, it must mean they are admitting them not for their talents, but for their race. What the FUCK are white people so afraid of? That black people are taking over the world?? That they are actually in some kind of danger?? It seems that what really bothers white people is that they cant count on being white to get them as many perks anymore, and no, just because schools have commitments to diversity does *not* assume that they think that minorities couldnt get in based on their talents, it means they recognize that they are disadvantaged in many ways, particularly financial. I've worked pretty damn hard to get where Ive got and I wouldnt have gotten into so many great schools if I wasnt talented, so I really take offense to fuckers saying shit like "well i guess i wont apply to ******* school next year because it looks like they only take ethnic people, at least, judging by the pictures of their students". So stay in your honkytonk town asshole. Its like not even being talented or working hard or whatever can be a safe space for black people. (I didnt think it did, but still, sometimes you start to get comfortable and then a honky pops up and lets you know you cant rest for a minute). Does anyone else experience this kind of bullshit? I swear, next white person I see I'm gonna snuff in the face....
