sexy-fruit:

I don’t understand how all Muslims are called terrorists because of what one group of 19 extremist men did 13 years ago.

But white people aren’t called terrorists when they invaded their countries, killed millions of civilians, when they shoot up schools, shoot up movie theaters, and kill random POC. Isn’t that something.

Don’t doubt yourself

thisiseverydayracism:

When you get the feeling that you might have been subjected to subtle racism, trust your instinct. Don’t doubt yourself.

The people telling you “it’s probably nothing”, “you’re just oversensitive”, etc are interested in protecting their own feelings, appeasing their white guilt, etc.  

Your instincts, on the other hand, are interested in your survival. 

Trust yourself. Especially when others doubt you.

Words like “exotic” as applied to women with non-white skin have weight and power because they are reminders that non-white women are being held against the white beauty standard and being found different (and therefore wanting).

Or different as in a nice adventure from normal/reality from which the man will eventually return ‘home’ from.
I hate the word “Exotic” as a compliment from men. HATE IT.
