Like seriously doe?
Who’s been the most subjected to all the words white people love to call ableist?
Who’s been stupid throughout history?
Who’s been idiotic? Moronic?
So why the fuck do you think it’s cool to come and tell me that calling a white person a basic bitch is “ableist~”
Especially when I have no power to oppress said cracker so the “ism” in ableism doesn’t even apply?
Especially when that person just came into my inbox and exerted their oppressive power over ME, trivializing my experiences as a Black person?
These honkeys betta ask somebody.
reasons why white ableism is bullshit
i still think Mia Mingus said it best:
“Ableism must be included in our analysis of oppression and in our conversations about violence, responses to violence and ending violence. Ableism cuts across all of our movements because ableism dictates how bodies should function against a mythical norm—an able-bodied standard of white supremacy, heterosexism, sexism, economic exploitation, moral/religious beliefs, age and ability. Ableism set the stage for queer and trans people to be institutionalized as mentally disabled; for communities of color to be understood as less capable, smart and intelligent, therefore “naturally” fit for slave labor; for women’s bodies to be used to produce children, when, where and how men needed them; for people with disabilities to be seen as “disposable” in a capitalist and exploitative culture because we are not seen as “productive;” for immigrants to be thought of as a “disease” that we must “cure” because it is “weakening” our country; for violence, cycles of poverty, lack of resources and war to be used as systematic tools to construct disability in communities and entire countries.”
