reasons I can make fun of white people:
- I am white people
- Racism against white people isn't a thing
- You literally don't need a reason
- Anyone can make fun of white people at any time for any reason

@jacethechicken [the "you can alway use an italian accent" meme but it's "you can always make fun of white people"]

@JohnBrownJr @jacethechicken
White people are valid targets for racial humor because of the the "punch up, not down" rule.
It's still not ok to use someone's privilege as an excuse to judge them as an individual based on their race. it's genuinely hurtful to be told "you're probably white enough to shoot up a school." i don't like being seen as someone who might shoot up a school just because of my skin tone. it's not cool. please don't do it.

@jacethechicken "You can't be racist against white people."
Me, a white person: "Challenge accepted!"

@jacethechicken @jacethechicken I try not to do that honestly, because I don't want to like, distance myself from my level of white privilege, y'know? It feels like evading responsibility or something.

@eat_cops @jacethechicken i would disagree that making fun of shitty white people necessarily distances someone from identifying their own privilege. If anything I'd say probably helps identify privilege in many cases.


I take issue with "for any reason"

like, if you make fun of white people for being black... that's not a good reason

@jacethechicken thank you for this post, I’ll show it before I make fun of a white person

@jacethechicken white people are irredeemably bad and there is no recourse


- People keep saying we can be controlled by cheese and every time I go hog wild over cheese I'm reminded that it's true
