I think one of my dad’s favorite pastimes is determining just how “black” a person really is and judging whether they are actually black enough to identify as ”black” at all.
For example: Obama is not black enough to call himself a “black man,” according to my dad. Because he is a mixed race person, he is not allowed to say he is a black person.
………….um? Pretty sure you’re not allowed to say that.
If you hadn’t guessed by now, my dad is very much white and wholeheartedly believes that white people are oppressed by reverse racism.
Another one of his favorite pastimes (besides arguing with me about basically every social issue) is arguing the definitions of words.
Apparently, if you don’t believe in the definition of a word, or you don’t agree with it, even though it is cited in multiple dictionaries and placed into various contexts for further definition with sources, that’s just fine. You can continue to use offensive language and argue the very existence of social problems! Examples: hateful groups like MRAs, homophobia, institutionalized racism, misogyny and rape culture, classism, damage to the environment, and so on, can all just not exist if you don’t agree with how those things are defined or what they mean to people.
Please. Send help. I’m going insane.
