If you live in or near Philadelphia you should be aware of the fuckery that is the Mummers Parade. It takes place January 1st annually and as the years have progressed it has progressively gotten more racist as time goes by.
Grown ass drunk as white men get dressed up in sparkly, ethnically offensive costumes and strut their stuff down Market Street (in the past Broad Street) I personally don’t know many POC that frequent this parade, I mean if you’re asking to get mad and offended then by all means enjoy yo’self.
Mummers parade of past, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing said grown ass drunk ass white men dress up like “Native Americans”, and “Mexicans” I place the quotation marks because their idea of an Native Americans and a Mexican is every racial stereotype you can think of. I’m not sure who is the head fuckboy in charge of this fuckery, but he needs to have his ass kicked for allowing shit like this.
This year some of the grown ass drunk ass white men decided it was “smart” to dress in black-face and mock the #blacklivesmatter movement. #Pause
The problem I have isn’t with the assholes who thought it appropriate to dress in black-face, I have a problem with the media.
At the same time of this wack ass parade, a protest involving #blacklivesmatters and the Coalition for REAL Justice, they were protesting issues including police brutality, the public school funding crisis, minimum wage and military action in the Middle East. The news outlets in our area reported the “disruption” that this protest caused (which took place in front of city hall away from the parade, not in the middle of the parade off to the side in its own space) but not one headline from the local news outlets reporting the disrespect and pure hate/racism that took place within the parade from the actual “performers”.
I’m never surprised when white people do racist shit, no I don’t think all white people are racists, but the way my emotions are set up it’s best if I expect racist shit from them that way I won’t get in my feelings when some racist shit happens. #KevinHartReference
I just love our media, they’re fucking awesome, blacks protest against police brutality, and their interpretation of it is a “mob of thugs rioting”. An armed white militia takes over a federal building in Oregon stating they will use force if necessary i.e., they waitin’ for somebody to “jump” so they can shoot some shit and it’s a “quiet protest”. WHAT THE FUCK!
