I've started a community called colorful_rage. It's a place to vent and rant about issues of race. Any other forms of discrimination are open for discussion too, but it's mostly for race issues b/c I didn't see a community like that already out there (like feminist_rage and queer_rage. Feel free to join, and if you're respectful and not a person who just likes to stir up shit, I'll approve you.

After the comment you just left there basically denying a lot of the effects of racism? Are you kidding me?

It's a safe space for POC to rant WITHOUT having people come in and tell them that their ridiculous for being upset about something and that it's not justified. They get that in the real world every day enough as it is.

This community, however, isn't FOR discussion of whether people are being too sensitive about these issues. It's a safe place for them to go and get that out, get angry about it, WITHOUT people trying to tell them they're overreacting. See what I mean? It's a safe space, and people coming in trying to tell them they shouldn't feel that way compromises that safe space.

btw, I was talking about your response to my post, not the other guy's. I didn't see that one till later.

Can you ever let go?crusheddreams10 on December 4th, 2005 09:38 pm (UTC)
Tis a shame you dislike me so, because judging by your interests, we seem to have much in common.

Sigh, all over such petty things such as former ideas and former writing styles.
Rachelkrazyhippie on December 4th, 2005 09:41 pm (UTC)
I don't "dislike you so", I simply called you out on an idea I thought was ridiculous. You later decided you thought so too, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't have been criticized when put up for discussion.

Tis a shame you're still upset about it. I don't hold grudges, that post is that post.

I'm not upset about anything. Anyway, it's great that you don't hold grudges, I know some do and it's sometimes hard to tell with some people over the net whether they dislike you or dislike your behavior and idea at the present time.
Rachelkrazyhippie on December 4th, 2005 09:52 pm (UTC)
Not a problem. No one is going to agree on everything, everyone has spats at one point or another. But unless they seem to be all the time, or of an extremel vicious nature, I don't see it as a reason to immediately dislike that person forever. Bygones are bygones. :)

Holy shit, Vernon...I think I overestimated you. I was actually beginning to think you were capable of not being a complete asshole all of the time. People aren't going to stick their head in the sand and pretend that prejudice doesn't exist because some white asshole might come along and accuse them of whining.

I'd also like to add that as far as whining goes, you have a patent on it and really have no room to talk. The difference is that minorities actually have a legitimate reason to complain, unlike yourself.

Except you did.

I only saw one post by you over there, and while you weren't vulgar, it still didn't paint you in a very flattering hue. You had the same attitude that you have toward feminism. You tend to trivialize the things that are so very important to these groups, and whenever you get called on it, you complain that you're being discriminated against.

Yet you fail to see that the very thing you complain about is what you advocate for minorities, women and gay people. You hate it when people get what you insist is the "wrong idea" about you, but you fail to see how insulting it is to have certain expectations or assumptions about people based on nationality, gender or sexual orientation.

I'm not convinced that you do this entirely on purpose, but neither am I convinced that you're as innocent as you try to pass yourself off to be. One can only claim they didn't know any better so many times before it gets old. You SHOULD know better by now, judging by the places you enjoy hanging out at on the internet.
