Gaga: *sings about burqa in Aura*
white people: that is racist and offensive she needs to stop appropriating muslim culture
People in America don’t understand that the entire world is consuming their media, and we’re fucking ecstatic to see our culture and countries portrayed in American media (as long as it’s not an overtly negative portrayal)
at dinner last night, a coworker was talking about hanging out with his white friends and getting fed up with the racist jokes, and asked them to tell a white people joke. nobody had any, so he googled and found these. after a few of them, people were a lot less comfortable.
white folks, next time you hear a racist joke, maybe lead with one of these in response. tag this “I’m white” when you reblog it, if you are.
