This last week, we have been plagued by people’s long, heartfelt posts about how “deeply shocked and disturbed” they feel and how they are “saddened by this country,” or how they are disappointed and worried. Post after post of angered people upset about the results. “Optimistic” statuses urge us to dive into the political system and get out ahead and really make some changes and do some good to fight against the shit-storm that is coming.
All these posts come from educated white people and they sound like total idiots. So glad you got that four-year degree, because it hasn’t helped jack shit with your cultural-awareness or your overbearing narcissism. Look in the comments of these posts and you read these blow-hards (who are trying to do right in the absolutely wrong way) in peaceful disagreement with each other.
“I see where you’re coming from, but I really don’t think violence is the answer with these protests.”
“To be fair, that isn’t what I said. I was merely alluding to my own discontent with this political system and the fear at which I am feeling now that I have seen the extent of hate-mongering that has occurred among the disenfranchised.”
You are a part of the problem and having a civil, grammatically accurate argument with your other white friends does absolutely nothing toward finding a solution. You’re getting off on your own “wisdom” and “tolerant views” and badly need the justification and approval from your social media to feel like you’re doing something right.
What makes you think people want to read your 1,000 word post on your feelings? Who are you, and why do you feel like you've earned this amount of time and attention?
You’re making up for lost time, because leading up to last Tuesday, all you did was post a couple articles and constantly used a hashtag. A fucking hashtag. That’s how you showed your political prowess? And now I bet you turned your profile picture to a black square to show some sort of protest. Great job. Just like when you turned your picture to the French flag and hashtagged “JeSuisParis” or filtered your picture to the rainbow flag and wrote “WeAreOrlando.” You are a waste, and through all your smarts and giggling at the Republican party, you let this happen.
So you’re “shocked” by the racism in this country? Really? You know who’s not shocked? All the minorities who’ve dealt with this “shocking racism” every day for their entire lives. You sound so uninformed posting about your “shock.”
And now you’re so fucking politically active you’re annoying your entire family and friends. Didn’t you go through this phase already the first Thanksgiving of your freshman year at college? But now you’re actually serious about it? Now you really want us to listen.
Some people are saying that this is the “kick in the ass that we needed,” to see the other side. Or that maybe all this is a blessing in disguise because now we’re really having a conversation. We’re really addressing the issues now.
Now you’re addressing the issues? This shit’s already terminal. You waited too long. “Better late than never!” How about “too little, too late.”
Is this going to happen again with global warming? We won’t really have a “conversation” about it and all you fuckers won’t actually start doing anything about it to solve the problem until Manhattan is halfway under water and we’re literally going extinct.
You fucked up. We fucked up. What are you going to do next, share this post? Fuck you too.
And with all this world disaster going on, lest us please not forget the real important thing in November: “No Shave November,” also known as “Movember.” But wait, there’s actually articles explaining the difference between the two, because, did you know they’re not the same? They are two different movements about two different things that mean absolutely nothing in regards to not shaving, growing a mustache, or replacing the “N” to an “M.”
To the douche bags who continue to post pictures of your beard or mustache: everyone hates you, you seriously suck, and I promise that no one is fucking donating to charity because of you and your facial-pubic hair. You’re using this trend as a way to not feel so guilty about needing attention through social media. If I really wanted to look at a shitty beard, I’d pull the hair out of the shower drain. Everyone hates your face.
Everything has changed, just like after September 11, 2001, we have permanently lived in a “Post 9/11 World.” Now we’re living in a Post President Trump World, or whatever saying some talking head will coin, and we have to deal with the consequences.
So share your links about begging the Electoral College to vote differently and keep having your politically correct arguments in each other’s comments. If that really makes the difference you think it does, nothing will make me happier than to admit I was wrong.
