wow, who would have thought that miley cyrus was an ignorant redneck?

Dear Generation Y:

Racism is not cute. It is not funny. It is not a socially acceptable way to get attention or blog traffic. And even if you aren’t thinking “Bring back the Asiatic Barred Zone Act!” while you’re engaging in it, it is, in fact, still racist. Yes, even if the single Asian person with you, who surprisingly does not represent the billions of Asian people in the world, is inexplicably not offended.

We are not living in a post-racial utopia, just because we elected a black president. (And anyway this execrable behavior from you clearly predates the previous November.) Bigotry is still very much alive in the world. If you doubt me, I invite you to spend 10 minutes in the small, rural Louisiana town half my family lives in. Where, if you’re white, near strangers will feel comfortable ranting about Obama and fried chicken and painting the White House black to you. Because they assume, on the basis of your shared skin color, that you also share their views. Because it’s that common.

In short, please try to rub 2 brain cells together and figure out why crap like the above is not acceptable.

Love,

Generation X, who is sick of explaining simple concepts to your stupid ass.

    I didn’t say it was “malevolent”. I said it was ignorant and ugly. Kind of like this comment, and you! Fuck off.
