How can we promote healing if all we're supposed to say to racists is "fuck you"? I'm pissed at them too, but that just doesn't seem very productive.
Hey ding dong, by telling racists “fuck you,” you let them know that their racist behavior and speech aren’t fucking welcome around people who aren’t, you know, completely pieces of shit. Treating those people like their racism is somehow a reasonable, debatable viewpoint prevents healing in the people who are actually affected by their bullshit.
I thought my wife's uncle was cool, but he just emailed me a racist joke. Does he think I like that shit? What have I done to make this man think I'm a racist?
What are you going to do to make sure he knows you’re not?
