What White is

Life as a minority: If someone the same race as you f*cks up, you are also f*cked. Even if you don’t know them. The negative trait gets added to white people’s collective database of what’s wrong with your racial group. One black is lazy? Then all blacks are lazy. One Korean student shoots his classmates? All Koreans are violent. And on and on.

Life as a white: If someone the same race as you f*cks up, only that person is f*cked. You’re fine. You’re good. You’re clean. Everyone gets judged for their own actions.

But how would it look if the worst of white America starts to define whiteness as a whole?

What kind of world would it be if Trump’s own words were used to describe whites instead of all the minority groups he’s thrown under the bus? (Sources for quotes: 1, 2, 3, 4).

This is what it would look like if Trump called white people… the same as he described countless women, African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinx Americans, Muslim Americans, LGTBQs, and other minority groups.

“Whites aren’t people. They are animals.”

By the way, these slides are from the latest call to action by the Metropolitan Police of Washington, DC to identify the rioters from this week’s invasion of the Capitol. The reward can pocket you $1,000.

“Whites will invade your neighborhood.”
“Whites aren’t the right people.”
“Whites have stuff coming out of their wherever.”
“Whites are blowing up buildings. Whites are doing lots of bad stuff.”
“Whites should go back to their shithole countries.”
“Whites should be executed.”
“Whites are thugs.”
“Trump has a great relationship with the whites.”
“Whites brought the redneck flu.”
“Whites are not sending their best.”
“Whites are bringing crime. Whites are bringing drugs. Whites are rapists. But some Whites are assumed to be good people.”
“Look at my White American over there.”
“Whites are crazed, crying lowlifes.”
“Whites should go back to crime-infested places from which they came.”
“Whites are those with the lowest IQ.”
“When whites start looting, the shooting starts.”
“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for white people’s problems.”
“Now this judge is of white heritage, I’m building a wall.”
“Laziness is a trait in whites.”
“You wouldn’t believe how bad these white people are.”
“Total and complete shutdown of whites entering the U.S.”
“They don’t look like whites to me.”
“White isn’t a race.”
“You have to treat ’em like shit.”

So those were the words of Donald Trump adapted to an imaginary world where he said them about whites instead of all the other groups he’s attacked. Racism must be felt first hand in your gut for you to truly understand. Thanks for going on this exercise.
