Wow I've never seen so many white people do the right thing en masse lmao

But seriously that guy is a dick. The dad of the bullied kid handled it beautifully, I'm glad he had the room on his side

Look at this white cowardly braindead devil. How many times he interrupts the guy speaking about his KID crying because he was being racially abused at school. How in his mind does it make sense for a child to go through that simply because he's an immigrant and he chose to come here? Whiteness is a disease.

I'm really glad everyone in the room reacted with disgust, and of course it's the black man that took him to task and brought it back to the kids.

I loved how that white, older lady first told him, 'it's not your turn,' and then when he kept talking, she got up and walked over and was like 'IT IS NOT YOUR TURN!' all in his face.

dying @ the latino parent laughing at this clownery and the old lady in the front clutching her pearls.

it's so infuriating that you have to laugh. like, i feel pity for people this stupid and uneducated. and whoever piped up talking about how this was a discussion and he should be able to speak, dios mio. he had ZERO interest in knowing why this parent left mexico. he was antagonizing the hell out of him and probably went just to stir the pot.

this is why POC are done having these conversations. most people truly don't want to listen, they just want to argue with you.

mte, white people feeling like POCs need to justify simply existing is exhausting

"this is why POC are done having these conversations. most people truly don't want to listen, they just want to argue with you."

mfte. people don't want to believe the ones they claim "just need to be educated" will come and DELIBERATELY heckle poc in public places because they want to get a rise out of them and think everyone around them will agree with their racism. there is no conversation, there's no discussion, and google is right there for people who want to be educated

and the people who truly want to be educated and have a conversation/discussion/lesson on anything they're wondering about know how to approach the subject in a respectful and decent manner. it's really not hard. you can always sniff them out.
