Appropriation and the Power Behind Racism

Hey scholars! 

I came across the photo below on some social media platform. What interests me about is how wrong the caption/text is. 





Since we're on the topic of appropriation, I think someone needs to look up the definition. If the Simpsons were black characters, white people dressing up as them would not be considered racist unless they painted their faces black. 

Also, people use the terms racist/racism too loosely. The fundamental definition of racism is to systematically benefit from advantages based on race. We do not have the power to benefit from such a system. While anyone can be prejudice, black people cannot be racist. 



Furthermore, REVERSE RACISM IS NOT A THING!!!! AND ALL LIVES MATTER IS A WAY TO KEEP BLACK PEOPLE SILENT ABOUT OUR PAIN!!!
