“I mean, if I had my way… you’d wear that goddamn uniform for the rest of your pecker-suckin’ life. But I’m aware that ain’t practical, I mean at some point you’re gonna hafta take it off. So. I’m gonna give you a little somethin’ you can’t take off.”
–Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Inglorious Basterds)
When did someone simply saying “Racecard” become a drop-the-mic-the-argument-is-over, get-out-of-racism-free card? I’m seriously tired of this shit.
Can we all agree that racism, both personal and institutional still exist, and that if they still exist, it’s ok to call it out for what it is? What happened to the honest racists of old, casually using racial slurs and being downright ignorant?
Now what you have are middle class cowards too scared to use the slurs in their head and much more likely to speak in code. Why don’t you assholes have the courage of your convictions?
For the same reason that the fictional Lt. Raine wanted to make sure that Hans Landa couldn’t just cowardly blend in to polite society and ignore his atrocities, today’s semi-casual racists should wear their braindead stupid fucking hate like a badge of honor, make it a little somethin’ you can’t take off.
I want to know who the fuck I’m speaking with.
