Do you realize that in your fallacious attempt to “liberate” women from our make-up and high heels by proclaiming “I love natural/real girls” that you’re, in fact, enforcing the same patriarchal ideals you seek to destroy by assuming we do these things for you in the first place?
Cracking the fuck up with this… sad how true it is.
Maybe this will help me be more patient with white folks stunting on some foolish shit - like, “Ju, it’s not their fault, they just have a low BMA and you can’t hold it against them.”
Disclaimer: This post is half serious, half parody:
Black Mental Age (BMA) measures human intelligence as compared to black people in America. A person with a BMA of 12, for example, understands the world as well as the average black 12-year-old in America.
It is an idea of mine to get at a difference between black and white commenters on this blog.
I used to think that everyone over 30 understood that America is no meritocracy, that it is profoundly screwed up. Yet white commenters on this very blog, grown men in their 40s and 50s even, will write in perfect university-level English about how fair and wonderful American society is! Like they are idiot savant 11-year-olds.
Black commenters, even as young as 16, have little trouble understanding my posts while white men, even those over 40, often have serious trouble understanding them. Like there is something wrong with those government tests where whites get such high reading scores.
And yet some of the very same low-BMA whites will talk about how blacks lack intelligence!
IQ: How whites measure intelligence. The trouble is, they write the tests and yet believe shockingly low-BMA stuff like this:
You can trust the police.
You can trust the news.
You can trust crime statistics.
You can trust history books.
You can trust IQ tests.
You can trust employers.
You can trust big business.
You can trust the accounts of white muderers, especially policemen.
Racism is pretty much dead.
It is possible for 40 million people to imagine the same thing at the same time.
American society is more or less fair and just.
People are poor mainly because they are unwilling to work hard and better themselves.
Most poor people are black and most black people are poor.
Television presents a more or less true picture of black people.
Whites do not and did not benefit from slavery.
Whites are completely unaffected by their violent, skinhead past.
People overseas hate America for no good reason.
People say bad things about America or whites only out of hatred.
White Americans are the good guys of history.
Such people are completely unsuited to writing intelligence tests.
In my experience most White Americans have a BMA between 10 and 14. I doubt I am imagining that since black intelligence as measured by the white tests drops after age 14 – what you would expect from tests designed by those with such limited intelligence.
Why does white mental development stop at such an early age?
Genes: Neanderthal genes limit their intelligence.
Unchallenging environment: Society is set up to favour them so they have no need to progress beyond a BMA of 14. You know, like how some say the easy living of the tropics limits black intelligence. Like that.
Social pathologies: Maybe whites do in fact get beyond 14 like everyone else, but their position in society and self-image requires them to act like they do not understand certain simple things, making them into pathological liars.
why i say so many white people are like giant children. but really it’s kind of like perpetual pre-teens or teenagers.
True, true, true. All true. ALLLLLLL TRUE. We are fucking idiots I swear to god.
I absolutely love you all and have no problem with you identifying as fat (as you are fat and it’s hella awesome) but please, for the love of all that is holy, stop acting as if your size 12/14/16 body has the same mental, physical, spatial,…
This is definitely something I have come to realise as my awareness of Fat Acceptance and Fat Positivity has developed (and it’s only a journey I properly started on in the past year or so - before that I was all about the Fat is Cool Beans for everyone else but not for myself. Anyway. Tangent.). I realise now that my level of fat actually comes with privilege. My level of fat is socially relatively acceptable. My level of fat is not all that Fat, on the grand scale of fatness. In fact I had…still don’t really truly have…any real idea of the levels of negativity that are aimed at people fatter than me. I can’t know, because I haven’t been there.
All I can know is my fat(ish) privilege is one of the many other privileges I have to be aware of. All I can do is listen to (the collective) you when you’re telling me about the crap that is being dealt to you and apologise for my ignorant part in it, take any responsibility I have to act on it, and support you. I hear you.
“In one study, researchers used computers to generate several faces that were exactly the same except for the skin color — half were black and half were white. All respondents (yes, including black people studied for the project) were more likely to rate the black faces as showing greater hostility. In another study, scientists showed a group of subjects a video of one person pushing another person. When the “shover” was black and the “victim” was white, 75 percent of research subjects said the push was aggressive. When the “shover” was white and the victim was “black,” only 17 percent of subjects said the push was aggressive. Implicit racial bias has also been found in what researchers call a “shooter bias” — in which subjects playing a simulated video game are more likely to mistakenly pull the trigger on unarmed black men than on unarmed white suspects. The phenomenon has been tested and proved with police officers, too.”—
“If you are a white woman and you want to call yourself a feminist, you must acknowledge that your whiteness affords you a privilege that shields you from a lot. You must also acknowledge that you are afforded privileges that some men in this country do not have. Racism and sexism are tightly intertwined. You cannot fight one while ignoring the other.”—ladyatheist (via alibabajenoriscaba)
