I think the issue is that white people think getting made fun of based on your race is the sole manifestation of racism.
And I wish…
I fucking wish that was all it was.
I can handle that. I can live with that. I could go on about my whole life and never care about…

"Students of color are allowed to enter the classroom but never on an equal footing. When they walk in, they are subject to the same racial stereotypes and expectations that exist in the larger society. Students of color do not have the advantage of walking into a classroom as individuals; they walk in as black, brown, or red persons with all the connotations such racialization raises in the classroom. They do not walk into a classroom where the curriculum embraces their histories. They walk into a classroom where their histories and cultures are distorted, where they feel confused about their own identities, vulnerabilities, and oppressions. There is no level of liberal reforms that can alter these experiences for students of color without directly challenging the larger systems in society."

An analogue in popular culture presupposing the vagina as a ‘hole’ or subterranean space separate, in the patriarchal imagination, from the thinking/feeling/knowing body [it] is attached to; and if it is to be deemed desirable, it should remain in a perpetual state of ‘lockedness’, closed off, secret, an underworld, a cave… where the Strong Male Hero enters to free it of the hysteria ruling it, to decapitate its serpentine ruler (i.e. Medusa) before conquering it and exiting the cave-space reborn, as conqueror
masculinist fantasies are weirdly psychopathological; i.e. men are infantile creatures with an unconscious desire to return to their mother’s womb
