Bad, Feminism, and Memes: ls it Racist? Racism is... Systemic oppression Reinforced by society Harmful to a group of people Based on history of power, oppression, and inequality Racism is not... Simply about hurt feelings x Only an issue of being offended Just a rude statement based on racial bias Reverse racism is not real. The sociological definition of racism is power+prejudice; thus you can be prejudiced against someone, but without systemic power, it's not "racism" (it is still bad and wrong obviously). We use the sociological definition of racism, since sociologists study society and things like racism and discrimination ๐Ÿ™‚ same reason we use scientific definitions for scientific phenomena and not just default to a basic general dictionary definition. If you are white and this upsets you, please think about history and the evolution of society. No one is saying white people have easy lives with no problems or that things are handed to you...just that racism is a SYSTEMIC issue that has to do with who has and has previously had power. And that ending slavery doesn't automatically make everyone equal. It's pretty easy to see that racism is still hugely prevalent today (look at the recent events in Charlottesville, the way people talk about people who are Muslim, the rhetoric around immigration, or anything Trump has ever said about any minority), so instead of debating about whether or not it was racist when a person of color was mean to you, why not focus on fixing these systemic issues and making the world a more equitable place for ALL people ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ. (Also I generally don't like turning off comments but things get hella messy whenever I post about racism, particularly reverse racism - I am assuming this is from people who follow me and are younger, maybe that live in mostly white areas and don't interact with POC and have never thought about racism??? - or y'all are just racist in which cause pls unfollow because feminism is not only about white women ๐Ÿ™„)
