America: Do whatever the fuck you want because America
Does anyone actually follow that ettiquette in England?
Because my understanding of tea ettiquette in England is: OFFER YOUR GUEST TEA AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVE - GIVE THEM THE LARGER MUG, BECAUSE THEN THEY CAN HAVE MORE TEA IN IT, AND MORE TEA IS BETTER - OFFER THEM MORE TEA AS SOON AS THEY HAVE FINISHED THEIR MUG OF TEA, BECAUSE MORE TEA IS BETTER.
IF SOMEONE LOOKS STRESSED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UPSET, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS TIRED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST COME IN FROM THE RAIN, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST RECEIVED BAD NEWS, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE WATCHING TV WITH SOMEONE AND THERE IS AN ADBREAK, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF TEA, OFFER TO MAKE EVERYONE ELSE TEA. IF SOMEONE IS NOT CURRENTLY HOLDING A MUG OF TEA, DOUBLE CHECK THAT THAT IS AN INTENTIONAL STATE OF AFFAIRS, AND THEY DO NOT, IN FACT, WANT A CUP OF TEA.
OR JUST THROW IT ALL IN THE HARBOR
ARE YOU TRYING TO START A REVOLUTION!? DON’T THROWS THE TEA IN THE HARBOR! HARBOR IS NOT THIRSTY! HARBOR IS NOT STRESSED!JUST THROW IT ALL INTO THE HARBOR

I’M NOT CRYING YOU ARE CRYING
My eyes are just sweating.
Boy of nine killed himself after he was ‘bullied for being white’ by an Asian gang at school. He was told by other pupils ‘all white people should be dead’ and he was forced to hide from the bullies in the playground at lunchtime.
Don’t you ever try to tell me there is no such thing as racism against white people. And don’t you dare fucking tell me it’s ‘reverse’ racism either.
And this was in the UK. He and his family are in their own country, their own homeland.
Repeat after me: ALL RACISM IS BAD. RACISM AGAINST ANYBODY IS BAD. PERIOD.
this is not racism!!!
this is what you call prejudice, where this behavior is not based on internalized behavior in society — it is based on how the people being prejudiced were raised.
what they did to this boy was horrible and disgusting and should not be overlooked, but it was not racism. it was prejudiced bullying. reverse racism still doesn’t exist. that’s all
No. The fucking definition of racism is prejudice based on race. This is racism. This is not institutionalised racism, it is not by any standards a major problem in society. But it is racism. Should we be concerned about racism specifically against white people? Of course not. We should be worried about fucking racism itself, because the concept of having prejudice against someone just because of their race is fucking dumb no matter who the prejudice is aimed towards.
^^^ Would have fucking loved this post to have been on my dash a few hours back when I was being hounded for saying racism towards white people is a thing. 9 fucking years old. All racism is bad racism.
