tumblr we are not fucking doing this right now take a day off
GO SIT IN THE CORNER AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE DOING.
Okay listen up! I don’t do this often, I understand that white people have a lot of privilege and I understand racism is a problem and I understand. I do. But shut the hell up. You can go on like that if you think that Robin Williams work never effected a person of a different race. Tell me little kids of every race never laughed at Flubber or Jumanji. Tell me that people of every color never thought or said that Genie was the funniest character in Aladdin. Tell me that no one of color was touched by his performance in Good Will Hunting or Dead Poets Society. If you can tell me that then you can go on about his death being white privilege. But you can’t tell me that so shut the hell up.
If you cannot respect the years he gave to touching lives and making people laugh with his talent than I can’t respect you. If you can’t respect his ability to make others laugh and make himself laugh and if you can’t respect him and his talent despite his race then you are the problem. Let me repeat that. If you cannot respect him because he just so happened to be white then you are part of the problem.
Shut up and take a day off Tumblr.
