Just Another Day in Post-Racial America

(h/t Angry Asian Man)

From OSU Haters:
As a consequence of my insensitivity to others at this university, my life was almost flipped upside down. Shortly after my comments I was contacted by the university that a hold had been put on my account and that I needed to meet with them immediately. Becoming a nervous wreck as to what could have happened, I scheduled a same-day appointment and met with some of the faculty in the Office of Student Affairs. During that meeting I discovered the stigma that had been attached to my name and the consequences that could come of it. I was informed that I could be kicked out of Ohio State permanently with an official note being put on any other school I applied to about my comments. This would have been an irrecoverable loss that would haunt me for the rest of my life if I didn’t take quick action. I found out my comments were not private, not secure, not a just way to vent, and not okay.

I had to make amends, and I had to do it quickly. I agreed to regular counseling about hate speech, safe ways to vent my frustration, and the newly formed anxiety I had about future employers finding out about this. I have also begun attending Diversity Leadership Transcript Program events with OSU and the office of Diversity to help me realize the importance of diversity for this country to progress. It is one of the most powerful factors in the progression of science, business, health, equality, and innovation not only within the United States but the world. Without it I wouldn’t be where I am today and most of you wouldn’t be either. I now know what I did was wrong and I will never repeat the same mistake. My only hopes are that this won’t affect my future, and hate like this won’t affect others’ futures as well. We are one university and one country, don’t let petty differences tear apart the exact thing that makes you great.
And now...from "the Collection":

    So the white majority is still not comfortable with POC kicking ass in college.

    1. Which is typical. The white people in this country love to complain when other folks are doing something right. It's much comforting than asking themselves what they're doing wrong.

    1. Own your sh*t. If you know you can't take the heat, then...
    2. Stop write cheques that your ass can't cash.

    All in all? I'll let my dude Mr. Colbert deliver my feelings.

    1. And I would like to add that I am HAPPY that names and faces weren't blurred. Like I said in Point 1...

  3. You'll also notice that many conveniently redefine what it is to be a racist in order make themselves feel better about themselves. And of course there will be the lost asian and black souls who will cater to the white majority and defend these racists with the classic "lighten up it's just a joke". Racism is now a catch phrase, people rarely understand what it means. It is not always about hate or violence.

    2. Ah, the old "I'm (insert minority here and I'M not offended!"

    3. I love everybody, but I learned long ago that not everybody loves me due to my skin tone. White America (not all, but majority) don't like to acknowledge racism, but it is alive and well. Just looking at the way our President has been treated can tell you that. I am glad the posts weren't deleted before we could see them

  10. Honestly, this is why I love social media. The idiots come out in droves to let you know exactly who to side eye for life and who needs to be expelled.

    1. Amen. We need to know who these people are and how they really feel. That way, we'll know how to deal with them.

  11. These idiots keep showing their ass and then wonder how they caught. I love when racist clowns dig their graves and cry they get shoved in them head first.

  12. Ok. I went to the website and was even more disgusted. What I want to know is how many of these kids are actually getting punished for their tweets? I mean, does the institution actually take the time to investigate these tweets? I'm pretty sure ALL these kids haven't been reprimanded, and that is the sad thing...

    They do so love their diversity training programs, don't they? Where's the program that teaches them how to be decent homo sapiens from birth? I honestly want to say something disparaging. It's too bad I have home training.

  14. When I first began to read and it said OSU at the top I thought "Oklahoma State, oh no no no the president of the NAACP here will be notified of this," but as I scrolled down and read some more it said Ohio. Anyways, these people must have a brain defect or something for thinking that just because you say something on the net it wont get noticed or deleting something does not mean it has been erased.

  15. I graduated from Ohio State and I am not at all surprised by these tweets. Thank goodness for the internet and cameras allowing us to document and expose these bigots. While I hope that girl was actually punished/reprimanded by OSU the whole thing seems a little too good to be true.

    1. Of course, people are writing in saying that they're 'making the problem worse' by highlighting it. Translation: "You're making sure the world sees how we really think! STOP HARSHING MY SQUEE!".

      Riiiiight, because we all know problems will disappear on their own if we don't tackle them.

    2. This is also really good therapy for Worshipers. It's nice to know what those shiny people you admire so much really think about you.

    3. Y'all...someone on the UNL tumblr actually had the nerve to write in:

      Listen, I am not a racist and I don't like being called one by some anonymous person on Twitter. You really randomly found my tweets and crept through them to find things you believe to be derogatory? That's weird and kind of sad. Half of the girls on my floor are Asian and a lot of my friends come from China. My roommate was Chinese! Trust me, I make fun of white people more than anyone. You take things too sensitively. I would appreciate it if you would remove my post from your Tumblr. Thanks!

      *cue fountain of vomit*

    4. Dafuq is this ignant sumbitch?

      When you can count the number of PoC around you, then you're racist as hell. And a roommate being Chinese doesn't make one not racist. This person sounds like a complete and total douchenozzle.

      If it was my tumblr, I wouldn't remove a fuckin' thing. Don't run now, punk. Don't back down now that your ass has been put on blast.

    5. I love how the mod's response to that request was pretty much, "Boo-frigging-hoo, bytch".

    6. Oh, yes...the mod told her to go fuck herself in the politest way possible.

  17. I never believe in a PC state of mind. Just makes you even more racist and more sympathic than empathic to those opposite of your race. I don't think you can ever remove racism. As long humans fear and hate one another racism will always exist. So I guess the key to ending racism is not just knowledge but more so selflessness. An ability to see a man or woman for who he or she is and not the skin color.

    That said my only pity to these people is that they live in world that can not fit their ideals. May I play a violin to sooth their pain.

  18. SLANTYS & NIGGERS UNITE!

    Heh, asides from the terrible jab at humor there, I usually have an effective way of countering people like these. I just laugh if so-and-so joke/slur/derogatory comment is mentioned in my presence, then subsequently comment about how whitey/them fuckin' crackers are like. The look on their faces would be priceless, creepy me gusta.
