"Go back to where you came from fucking nigger whore!"
(warning: there's unpleasant wordage below and harsh opinions. I apologise in advance for any misspelled words, and harsh wordage)
The last week or so racism has been a frequently mentioned topic here in Norway after the beautiful video one of Norway's top blogger published, where her co-actor is of african decent, the video received tons of racist comments about her co-actor. Such a beautiful man getting tons of hate based off of one thing, and one thing only. His RACE, being a black man in a white country, co-acting against a white, blond and light eyed girl. To be honest I'm not big on ready what we here call "pink bloggers" content, and I'm neither for or against it. But I really put my respect on her answer to the comments.
We live in a multicultural society, we live in multicultural countries, with multicultural friends. I honestly don't understand what brings some people to say and comment racist things like it's nothing, and when asked it's the person being subjected to racism's fault. He or she was asking for it. You must feels so fucking miserable in your own skin to say things like that, you must really be an insecure piece of shit to think it's alright to say horrible things to others, whether it's racist, discriminating or anything horrible. When saying you I'm not talking to the everyday person who doesn't slam derogatory and racist words to other people, no matter the race they are.
The tilte is just one of the few things I've gotten thrown on me as a mixed race person through out the years. I thought we'd be better at treating one another with respect in this day and age, I thought we were passed the time where yelling derogatory words were a common occurrence. It makes me sad to think that living in 2017 we're yet so far behind. I've heard it all from "go back where you came from" to "you must find yourself lucky to have been bought by a pimp here, you bastard whore dosen't deserve to be here!", I've been called every word in the book to describe a dark-skinned person, light skinned person, a person of mixed decent and race. But don't worry, it's just me that can't take a joke right? I was obviously asking for it when I was standing there minding my own business!
I'm really lucky I've learned to not let stuff like that effect me, that I don't take it to heart, I get told "jokes" like "what's the difference between a Norwegian girl and you? She can say hello to her dad", I've been asked if my father even has custody over me and much more. WHICH WORLD is that okay for anyone to say any of the things mentioned to any race at all?
I rather they say that too me, than to an insecure young girl or boy, I rather take that punch for someone who needs it, so that they can go that day at least and not hear that, to not be effected by idiots like that for just one day at least.
I'm not the person to really get involved in discussions over themes like this, but to be real I've had it with this bullshit! And it pisses me off that someone who feels so miserable and so bad about themselves think it's alright to ruin someones confidence, day and to actually ruin someones life. Yeah that's right, hearing words like that for someone who has their own struggles already does major damage to that persons psyche.
To you that have experienced racial slurs and behaviour, I'm so so sorry, and I honestly know how it is, I just want you to know that there isn't anything wrong with you, you're perfect just as you are, no matter what race, religion or sex you are, you are appreciated and you're STRONG! You're not the problem, you're not asking for it, it's their fault, who ever says anything derogatory or racial or discriminating to you, they are the REAL PROBLEM, not you!
If you ever feel bad for who you are, what skin colour you have, what pronoun you go by or whatever it is you find as flaws, go to a mirror, look at yourself, and know there is NOTHING wrong with you, it's who ever put those thoughts and doubts in your head. I know it's a cliché thing to say, but as a matter of fact, it's true. And a cliché is a cliché for a reason, it works.
Embrace you race, your sex, your looks, and be freaking proud of who you are! I'm so proud of my heritage, and being mixed race. I wouldn't change it for the world, even if I could! ❤️ Spread positive vibes and most importantly, be yourself and embrace who YOU are!
