Imagine if r/whitepeopletwitter made you confirm your whiteness by sending a picture of your forearm to the mods. Or had a country club mode, where only confirmed white people were allowed to participate.
It would be banned immediately because that's a horribly racist thing to do.
So why is this allowed on r/blackpeopletwitter?
Saying "it's okay to be a POC and discriminate against white people because historically, white people have discriminated against POC" is an insane and racist argument.
How about we just stop discriminating?
Im not saying ignore race. It's okay to be a different color, have a different culture, a different set of beliefs, different interests, etc. That's what being human is.
What's not okay, is discriminating against people on that basis.
If you're a POC and you're okay with, or worse encouraging discrimination, then you're a racist.
I'm so tired of this double standard.
Edit: I've tried to answer every single comment I can.

If someone changes their mind and behaviors over time, it’s more likely a sign of correcting errors in premature decision-making or undoing bad habits. As life goes on, people gain more experience, perspective, and information to make better, well-informed decisions. Change is a sign of growth so it’s best to be supportive throughout that process.
In my mind the beach is a relaxing place to unwind and get some sun, but when I'm actually there the wind, sweat and sand remind me that things aren't always what they seem.
It is disgusting. If Will had cheated on Jada the entire internet would turn on him and crucify him. Except because he is a man he is the one being mocked and memed.
Firstly, we don't have a reason to be involved in their relationship, and if they choose to make it work then good on them.
However, that doesn't mean Jada should be proud of her actions. She abused the trust of a great man. I'm kinda surprised the internet isn't backing Will on this to be honest.

"Wow that's amazing!" - says the wife - "But this is very strange, dear... yesterday she seemed to be on her deathbed, the doctors said she should have a few days to live!"
"Well, I don't know how she was yesterday" - he replied - "But today when I arrived at the hospital, the doctor told me that we should prepare for the worst"
Silence is golden.
It is better to remain silent and be assumed to be a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
People these days just talk and talk, and then wait their turn to talk some more while pretending to listen to what other people have to say. Nobody listens.
People also have a terrible habit of talking about things they don't know a goddamn thing about, just for the sake of having something to say. People are too afraid to say "I don't know" like its some kind of vulgar phrase. People talk before they think, and act before they think entirely too much.
If what you're about to say doesn't contribute meaningfully to the conversation around you -- why talk? If what's being talked about doesn't apply to you, or doesn't provide you any benefit, why participate?
I really don't think that the whole "quiet kid" stereotype holds any value -- I think its symptomatic of a population that just flaps their gums way too much and never really has anything meaningful to say.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Every time a new expansion comes out, it feels like I have to re-buy the game to play the decks I find enjoyable and stay relevant on the ladder. And no, I don’t think hearthstone is necessarily pay-to-win. I’ve gotten to legend a few times with low-cost aggro decks. But let’s be honest, who doesn’t get tired of playing them? If you want to make an actually interesting deck in an expansion, you pretty much have to pay, unless you want to go through a boring grind with a decks you don’t enjoy playing.
What grind am I talking about? Well, from quests you make an average of 53.33 gold/day. I’m going to be generous and say that you are also winning 6 games a day every day to get that 20 gold win reward. That’s about 73 gold/day. The average drop rate for legendaries is 1 per 20 packs, which costs 2000 gold. That means earning one legendary the F2P way requires 28 days of playing every day, winning 6 games a day. And you have no say about what legendary you get. There’s no guarantee that i... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was in a campaign where we'd found a mysterious book written in a dead language. I had just leveled up and gotten that warlock invocation that lets you read anything. When I told the DM this, there was a long pause, a deep sigh and a halt called to the evening, because apparently the plan had been a whole story arc about finding someone who could translate it.
So a couple weeks ago I was 36 weeks pregnant with my son, On this day, my husband had left at 8 am and took our two younger children to his parents house and my step daughter had already left for the day, to get her senior class schedule and do a few other things done for the school year'
I was home alone when all of a sudden I went into labour, I had been cleaning the kids bathroom, when I realised I thought I only needed to use the toilet, I felt a lot of pressure and when I looked down My babies feet were hanging out, I managed to move onto the floor and then realised I was bleeding out, I couldn't move I had to literally scream for help hoping a neighbour or a passerby would notice.
I don't know how long I was on the floor for but it felt like hours, but after awhile I heard the front door open then close and I screamed out, My step daughter ran upstairs to find me on the bathroom floor, she went to get some towels and grabbed her phone to call 911. I knew she was actually terri... keep reading on reddit ➡
Today I went shopping for groceries with my dad who is immunocompromised. Before anyone says "oh he should just stay home", please know that he rarely leaves the house already and going to the grocery store is one of the only places he can go relatively safely and choose what food he wants. Also, he works full time so he can't just take time off to go during the special hours.
The arrows at the store are quite large and mark which way traffic should flow. In one of the aisles, my dad politely asked a couple to follow the arrows and turn around so he could get through. They waved him off and said no one cares anyways. He then told them he was immunocompromised and they said "then don't f-ing come to the store" and flipped him off. He was pretty angry at this and was kinda muttering under his breath about how it's not that hard to follow the f-ing arrows. A lady in the aisle overheard and called him very rude. We just kept walking and finished our shopping.
So tldr: follow the arrow... keep reading on reddit ➡
Before the whining about "mansplaining" begins, I'm a woman, so don't waste your nail polish.
I hear too often how women "can't tell him" various things bothering her, because "he has a fragile ego." No, you can't tell him these things because you're attacking him and being hateful when you tell him.
You also can't tell him things because you only tell him negative things. You're ungrateful.
If you tell a man, "I like it when a guy gives me chocolates," he'll probably give you chocolates. If you snap at him that maybe you'd forgive him if his lazy ass got up off of the couch and got you some chocolates... You're likely to get only a big argument.
If he gets you the wrong kind of chocolates, and you tell him so with all the fury in your rotten little soul, you're to blame when you get no more chocolates.
If you tell him how much you appreciate how hard he tried, and actually, you know, appreciate that he DID try... And then say that your favorites are X type, but you will enjoy the... keep reading on reddit ➡
