Been wanting to cry, feeling like I need to, for a few weeks now, but it doesn’t want to happen.
I'm not standing up for iggy or what she said, but calling people human trash for being uneducated is not solving anything, she hasn't learned that's disrespectful--part of that is the culture of rap. She's not trying to be racist, but growing up in low-mid class suburbs, so often I saw kids use the term not realizing the disrespect but not knowing any better, she's not justified but before calling someone human trash think of why they are saying what they are saying, where they come from, etc.
It’s 2014. Twenty fucking fourteen. Anyone who hides behind the excuse of “I didn’t know I shouldn’t use the N-word to describe black people” is a racist and human trash.
Whether or not she is trying to be racist, is totally beside the point. She is a white person and by using that word she IS being a racist. How can she NOT know better by now??
Racism isn’t innate. It is a learned behaviour. By thinking otherwise and giving people the benefit of the doubt assuming they don’t know the full ramifications of that language is abhorrent. By doing so, you are part of the problem too.
No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.
not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that.
men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.
