Why. Do. I. Need. To. Say. This???
Paris Michael K. Jackson recently said she considers herself a Black woman. My reaction was laughter because I’ve never heard a Black person say they consider themselves Black. Consider is when you think carefully about something before making a decision. Are you niggas considering that you might be Black? I’ve never considered it in my life. I had NO clue we had an option. This would’ve solved slavery if we could’ve just told Massa we don’t consider ourselves Black. I’ve typed “consider” so much I’m considering the chance that it might be a white word. Yes. I’m racializing words because we’re being ridiculous now. Say consider out loud. Did you do it? Say it slowly. Con·sid·er. Doesn’t that word sound like the taste and texture of plain Greek yogurt? Considering is a white privilege. Don’t argue.
Point Number Two
Bruh. Are those even Michael’s kids? Michael has STRONG Black features. How did she inherit the most recessive genes in human history from that man? One of my Facebook followers suggested he used selective genetics to give his children the features he wanted them to have. So… he created genetically mutated white people? That’s not a new theory. Was his middle name Yakub or something? Why would that even-
Alright, So Anyway.
Race is a social construct. It’s not genetic and there is no real science behind it. It was created based on physical appearance and that’s how it’s currently and will always be upheld. If you appear to be a white person society deems you white and will treat you as such. Being white comes with privilege but being Black doesn’t. Blackness just gives you some cool edgy points. Therefore white people will use Blackness to seem hip or like they’re “down” and Black people will readily accept it. On the other hand white people never go to bat to claim any dark-skinned person with nappy 4c hair and a wide nose on the strength of them having one white parent. Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o could be 64% Caucasian and white people won’t give a singular fuck because they look Black. Whiteness is a member’s only club while Blackness is a community outreach that begs people to drop by and wave occasionally.
It’s Hard For Me To Write This Article Because I Can’t Take This Seriously
I understand she’s Michael’s child and he loved her but I’m not going to give her a pass because of her dad’s influence and accomplishments. That’s the whitest reason to ever let shit slide so I don’t even want to hear the self-defeating ass logic. She hasn’t done anything that I know of for Black people to go this hard for her. She even dated a white dude with a confederate tattoo who casually dropped the n-bomb.
I Don’t See Color?
Maybe I’m tripping and one drop is enough to “consider” yourself Black. There is that one white guy who sued for minority business owner status when he found out he was 4% African. So yeah we should just take away all programs that benefit Blacks and other People of Color and give them out to anyone who has…
I Can’t Finish That Sentence
I’m done here but y’all can continue to fight for this white woman’s right to be dismissed, disrespected, and considered the bottom of society along with other Black women. I’m sure she genuinely feels that struggle. Y’all niggas weird.
