(tw: for anti-Blackness, KKK imagery, use of the n-word) Manny Pacquiao lost to Tim Bradley today…
Child in what world did you think it was okay to use this kind of comparison or language as a response to a sporting event?
All together now: That’s racist.
What the fuck did I just see cross my dash?
1. The kkk are a disgusting white supremacist group responsible for the murder and terrorizing of many Black americans.
2. While it is likely a sad but true thing that there likely enough anti-Black Filipin@s that something like this could happen, it is absolutely gross for you to be trivializing it in this way over a boxing match.
3. That tag? You don’t get to use any variation of the n-word unless you are Black. You tumblr profile indicates you aren’t.
I know you did this because you think it is funny. It isn’t funny. And you owe every single Black american in your life (if there are any) an apology. You owe the community a heartfelt apology. And you really, really need to spend sometime examining you disgusting levels of anti-Blackness before you continue interacting with other human beings.
You are an embarrassment to Filipin@s everywhere.
Fuck you and fuck this shit.
This needs to be here.
Fellow Filipin@s? This is not okay. Don’t do this. Ever.
Trivializing something so serious like the kkk over a boxing match is a disgusting display of an inhuman lack of empathy.
Oh shit brah.
Okay okay let me get my keys I’m going to come collect my folks.
Okay so here’s the scoop kiddies; this is not okay. This is never okay. This is the kind of shit that The Man wants because keeping us at each other’s necks keeps him on top.
And let’s not trivialise the KKK because we should never forget what the KKK are and what the KKK do. The KKK are a terrorist organisation which is allowed to continue because they are terrorists for White supremacy.
This is why people need to know their history.
There’s no way you should be joking about the KKK when you had white people giving the orders to “kill every boy above the age of 10” up in the Philippines.
I had to google “Tim Bradley”. And then I saw he’s a Black man.
Repeating everything above: CHILD, IN WHAT WORLD IS IT OKAY TO RESPOND TO A BLACK MAN’S SPORTS VICTORY WITH A RACIST WHITE SUPREMACIST IMAGE THAT HISTORICALLY HAS POSED A THREAT TO BLACK (and pretty much all non-white) PEOPLE?
