Contemplating "White American Individuality"

All right, Ankhesenologists; you've played this sort of game before

Whether you prefer to call it "whitespeech" or "sloganspeak", we've all become intimately familiar with white American lines.  We hear and read them all the time.  It's like they're following a script that gets updated every few years and is routinely issued through the White Chamber.

And while 99.999% of the white people you meet/read all say these things, 100% insist they are unconditioned individuals.  When you stop to think about it, it's pretty funny.

I'll start, and you add the ones I miss.

The Classics
"I'm not a racist, but...."

"I don't mean to sound racist/prejudiced, but..."

"My ancestors never own slaves."

"You can't judge the people of that time."

"Martin Luther King, Jr. said [insert MLK quote from before 1963]."

"In my heart, I know I am not a racist."

"...playing the race card..."

"I have [insert POC] friends."

"I apologize if anyone was hurt or offended by my statements. That was not my intention."

"Slavery, racism, and segregation are in the past. We shouldn't talk about them anymore. Talking about racism is what keeps it alive."
The Up and Coming
"...Freedom of Speech..."

"...Diversity of Opinion..."

"Just because it's an unfortunate and inconvenient truth, doesn't make it any less true."

"I just find [insert TV/film interracial/POC couple] inauthentic."

"I just don't think [insert TV/film interracial/POC couple] have any chemistry."

"I'm not racist; I just think [insert female character of color] is boring/bitchy/doesn't belong."

"My ancestors died for this (Confuckerate) flag."

"We live in a post-racial society."

"We need to help black people reclaim the word 'nigga.'"

"We (white people) are just as qualified to speak about racism as people of color."

Any hipster racism joke.

"Political correctness is running amok."

"...my own country..."

"Just because I express a personal opinion/preference doesn't make me racist."

"I'm white; I can't help it."

"Do you see me as a racist? Or as a white female who loves black males?"
And last but not least, a personal favorite of mine:


Oh, wait...that's the Borg.

Anyhoo, you catch my drift.

  1. Awwwww grrrrrrrrrrl!!!!!!!

    Oh we're playing that game? OH HELL YES! Challenge accepted.

    Let me pull out some of my favorites:

    [places on glacess and pulls out list from blazer. The list actually rolls for several yards]


    I don't know anything about this particular subject, but I'm going to argue with you and tell you why you're wrong.

    Prove it to me. Prove to me that [racism/misogyny/homophobia/etc] exists. Show me your evidence and convince me. And if I don't believe it, it didn't happen.

    The Rosewood Tactic: White women get called out on their racism and homophobia and then cry white woman tears and cry how queer men/men of color are mansplaining and oppressing them.

    I didn't read the post we're discussing but I'm going to argue about it anyway.

    You're saying I have white privilege? I WASN'T BORN IN A MANSION, flying in a jet with diamonds and pearls raining down on me.

    You speak so well. You're not like the rest of black people. You're clearly not influenced by black culture.

    I'm racist? You're just oppressing me because I'm a white woman/white gay man. You're the misogynist/homophobe.

    Maybe the racism is because you have a chip on your shoulder/low self-esteem/it's all in your head.

    I'm not a racist, I sleep with POCs all of the time [even though I wouldn't date one or be seen with them in public].

    WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE WHITE PEEPUL?!!!!!!

    As told to countless queer POCs who speak out on LGBTQ issues, "YOU DON'T SPEAK FOR THIS COMMUNITY. YOU'RE NOT EVEN A QUEER PERSON!!!!!"

    Obama scares me. I think he has an agenda.

    Why are you being so upset? You're getting too emotional I simply said that [insert racist opinion of your choice]. Why are you throwing up your arms and walking away? Why can't we just have an honest civil conversation.

    It was the War of Northern Aggression/Southern Independence.

    Wait, you're saying WOC deal with racism AND misogyny?

    The North is just as racist as us Southerners.

    Most white peepul didn't even own slaves.

    And while discussing bigotry and intersecting oppressions, you can always count on a white person to ask, "Can we not bring race into the discussion."


    I'll continue to post as they come to me.

  2. True story, it never ceases to amaze me how the people who swear up and down how individual they are, how different they are; are the same people who are saying the same damn thing over and over.

    And then get mad when you have the audacity to suggest that they are anything but original.

    It's amazing in that holy crap batman epic fail kind of way.

  4. I have some:

    "Black people commit the most crimes in this country even though they're a minority in this nation."

    "Black people are more racist against white people. After all, they bring it up all the time when we really need to just forget it, ignore it, and hope that it will go away."

    "Black-on-white happens more often than white-on-black or even black-on-black.

    Statistics argument: Whites use statistics to support their claims that blacks commit more crimes against whites, and the statistics are drummed up or highly exaggerated. For example, and I've seen it, black people are 600 times more like to attack a white person than vice versa.

    "Of course black people commit more crimes. Look at the news!"

    "White people are superior in intelligence (proven by I.Q. tests) and are less criminal (proven by numbers they made up)."

    "Hey, we all live in the same world…"

    "Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck might be morons yes- but they’re no more racist than I."

    "I don’t hate him because he’s black... I just don’t like his politics."

    "Show me his birth certificate… what are you afraid of?" (Obama releases the darned thing and then…)

    "You still can’t convince me his long-form birth certificate is genuine; looks doctored to me. It’s a conspiracy I tell ya!"

  11. "Obama scares me. He has an agenda"

    Ha Ha I'm having fun with this. I once had a dispute with this White man on a Muslim American website. He had those same thoughts.. Justifying the racism from the Tea Partiers.. calling Obama a Communist etc.

    Near the end, he had the audacity to say that Dr. King was a Republican who would have approved of this party.Yes, Dr. King was a Republican and I just thought what he said was terrible. Dr. King has been dead for many decades and we may not known what he would have been on his mind, but I'm quite sure that if the man was around today he wouldn't be for pro-racists like the Tea Party and with his immediate family, the were all Democrats. Besides, when his niece spoke on behalf of the Tea Party,she didn't get too much love from us and her cousins were embarrassed by her. That should have told that dimwit something right there.Another classic quote, again related to this..is that he wanted to tell people how friendly the Tea Party movement was. You know that favorite quote" We have Black Tea Party members in our movement" YAAAYYY..." Was I really supposed to be impressed with that?!all his excuses reminded me of another classic quote
    that is on here" I'm not racist. I have Black friends..." year to fill in their racial quotas.

    Been thinking about this for years. The similarities are unsettling. Here we have a box full of pale white people with a leather fetish, invading civilizations and urging conformance. Compelling you to abandon both your history and your culture in favor of the dominate ethos. Upon compliance you’re hereby Americanized. Some of us have even gone as far as to bleach our skin to get the desired effect.

  25. Ho Hum, everyone knows that ALL CRIMES ARE HATE CRIMES.

    Everyone's a little racist.

    I'm 1/196 Pretendian princess, and I'm not offended by Thanksgiving.

    Can I touch your hair?

    Is that your real hair?

    It's so easy being black. You just have everything handed to you.

    You're intolerant of people who are intolerant, THAT'S INTOLERANCE.

    You just can't handle people who disagree with you.

    The South was going to free the slaves eventually.

    You're not black. You're African-American.

    I watch Anime and listen to J-Pop, I'm an honorary Asian person. TRU FAX! TRU FAX!!!!!!

    Because homophobia is far worse in the black community.

    Why are the black girls so jealous of me?


    The only true race is the HUMAN RACE.

    Race doesn't exist. It's totally a construct.

    Why would the cops frame OJ? Police officers don't do that! [oh yes I just went old school on you]

    You listen to rock music, straighten your hair, and you're in AP classes, why are you acting so white?

    Did you just accuse me of being racist? THAT'S THE MOST OFFENSIVE THING YOU CAN CALL SOMEONE (even more offensive than the act itself)

    Apparently not. Sometimes I honestly think that they think I must be "spehshul". You know, that rare black woman that can actually perform the dance with a native quality, but at the same time I should be because I'm black.

    *rolls eyes*

    And I can't believe that I've forgotten the all-time favorite every black dancer has ever heard...

    *You have to be blond haired and blue-eyed to perform this dance!

    And some others that I remembered while grabbing a quick smoothie...

    *My new boyfriend is Middle Eastern and now that I am dating and sleeping with him, I know all about the dance and culture!

    *I am so happy to have slept with an Egyptian and Turkish man so that I can have two an Egyptian child and a Turkish child! [No joke! Actually said it.]

    *Now that I am married to an Arab man, I am Arab too! And his family adores me so much!

    *I have 1/1,000,000,000,000th Arab ancestry in me! So that automatically makes me a good dancer! You know because its in my blood...

    *Why should I hire a black dancer? All they do are the booty dances like the ones they do in the videos.

    Oh Ankhesen, you have no idea! The racism in Middle Eastern dance is quite unbelievable.

    1. O_O holy fuck. As a dancer that does piss me off.
      However there's a lot of racism towards people who do martial arts. I remember when I got this "Why do you do Capoeira you're not even and fucking N word, you're a fucking 'Chink'" ...Oooooooooooooooh I was pissed I almost went to do a Compasso (it's a kick) and compasso him in the throat.

      That level of ignorance made my mixed blood boil; cause not only did you say the N word, but you called me a 'Chink' I don't like being called any Asian derogatory slur no matter how much Asian I am. It doesn't fucking matter just because I'm part Asian didn't give this mother fucker the right to call me ANY SLUR that pertained to my heritage.

      I love this one too " Why do you like Hip Hop/ Rap/etc. You're not even black"...it's like excuse me for having an open mind and good music taste. I like pretty much everything except Country and a lot of American pop.

      This one too" Aren't you Asian aren't you supposed to have small breasts" ( he said other things about curves)OH MY FUCKING GOD.......I told the guy" Ooooh no no no no no no I'm EURASIAN and proud I love my breasts, my ass and hips thank you. And no not every Asian woman has small breasts that's a generalization; and it makes you look like a dumb fuck". ( and I was literally thinking this too; have you not seen Vietnamese, Thai, Korean,etc ((a bunch of different Asian races that don't always have small breasts or small hips and ass)) The level of idiocy fucking amazed me ...I can't even tell you how shocked I was at the level of idiocy that was demonstrated.

      This one: " You'd be more beautiful if you were blonde" ...no sorry but my complexion would never allow me to be blonde and look good. I'm sorry I don't want to look like a Barbie Doll I'm not plastic. I rather love my natural hair color which happens to be black. I'm sorry but the example of or vision of beauty should not be blonde hair blue eyed and Caucasian. Every race should be considered beautiful regardless.

      this too: " Native American's should just get over it, we're not nasty to them now they have no reason to be mad at us now" and this is where I go off" OOOH yes they do, they were here first do you remember the trail of tears many innocent people died.Then they were shoved into reservations treated like shit. They were looked down on just because of their skin how would you feel if someone decided to hate you because of your skin color. Think about that shit before you talk".

I wanted to punch her in the face so badly,but I didn't. Instead I felt sorry for her that she possessed a level of ignorance no amount of education could cure. And im not going to even touch the latina not black thing that I've heared waaayyy too often recently. Guess I should tell some of the black hispanic people I know that they are having an identity crisis when they call themselves black. Also a big LOL to the" that black female character forced herself onto the white male character" statement. I've been reading comments like that online alot recently and it makes me wonder if some folks are either in denial, delusional or have comprehension issues.

  48. oohh yay!! here's one of my favsies: "Slavery was practiced in Africa too.."

    *and refers to Africa as just one whole country*

    or how bout

    "I've forgotten about/or/got over it. Maybe you should too."

    *The N word comes up and it's all eyes on you*

    "If you go around thinking that you're a second class citizen all your life, then they're gonna treat you like one." (yeah fucking right..*I'm looking at the president*)

    *A black person with a College level Vocabulary= pretentious/white/threat*

    and the classic..

    "Why do THEY get to say it and no one gets offended..but if I say it its racist"


    *It is racist for non white people to self segregate!

    i'm so sicka that one! be the ONLY black person in the room, though, and watch the whole room clear out or shift to ONE side..true story.

    I can't believe I forgot that!

    Which reminds me..."The Ancient Egyptians weren't black."

    "Ancient Egypt was a multicultural society."

  50. What about the Koran makes Muslims so violent? You don't see Christian's killing people!

    *ahem* The Crusades, The Inquisition, The Witch Trials - oh, and Tim McVeigh and Adolf Hilter were professed Christians. Which Bible were all of those cats reading?

  51. Can't believe I almost let this one go:

    "...sticks and stones", which white people utter whenever a POC objects to racially motivated insults.

  52. "So you're saying we can't be friends/go out (or you don't trust/like me) because of what I said? That's just...sad." ~ when you call a drone out for being racist.

  54. I find this to be a big problem; People saying mixed children don't belong or should never have happened (fucking racist) and it bothers me.

    This one bugs me too: "Wow you have that many nationalities that mixed that's really dirty blood"...and that's when I say" Thank you very much; I'm mixed proud and fucking fine as hell. Dirty blood my ass". (yes I have had this happen to me personally, I'm very mixed heritage and I haven't listed all of my heritage but I don't think it matters...it's still fucking racist to say the above statement).

    @leoprincess thank you god someone shares my opinion of Christians and on what is considered 'Holy Wars'. There's no such thing as Holy and War thay just don't go together as Wars are not holy but just blind hate and greed. Least from what I've seen. I don't like the Hypocrisy of the Christian faith it's ridiculous.

    I had someone last year in a store call me a 'Jap' (yea I'm using the word I hate it and it's VERY INSULTING) I've also been called a Shovelface too (don't know what that means look it up; I had to and when I found out what it meant I was mad as hell) any token Asian Derogatory slur You name it I've probably been called it. I find it absurd; but then again Ignorance is Ignorance; all you can do is educate and hope it helps buuuuuuuuuuuut odds are it won't.
