here are some words that are impolite to use that you may not know are impolite:
- “gypped” (derived from gypsy)
- “ghetto” in reference to things that are shoddy/bad/unseemly
it’s okay if you didn’t know these words are rude but if you are reminded, or if someone tells you, all you have to do is try not to use these words in the future
your effort in being polite and respectful to those around you will be appreciated!

I will listen to these “OMG must protect white characters from being played by brown people” riffs when I can get a Luke Cage movie. Or Black Panther complete with Wakanda. Or a period piece about the Harlem Renaissance that doesn’t focus on white people. The Policy Kings. Black Wall Street. Chinatown with actual Chinese people. Anything about Sikhs in America. Vaqueros. Or anything starring people of color interacting with their own communities as they exist instead of a collection of stereotypes that erase humanity. Can I get the history that isn’t traumatic on my screen? How about magic that isn’t done in service of white people? Can we be our own heroes without white people flipping their shit?
This is why karnythia is one of my favorite people in the worlds. All of them. See you as Wiscon, bb?

Costco CEO Craig Jelinek supports raising the minimum wage.
Costco announced record profits today, averaging $10,000 in profit per employee compared to $7,400 at Walmart.
The secret to Costco’s success is paying employees well, providing benefits, and giving them an opportunity to unionize.
So large corporations’ excuses that treating & paying workers well would damage profits are all a crock of shit.
Tumblr - Effects of thinking white people are all like that
Be cautioned. These are the sounds of the true real world effects of generalizing white people
