To be honest, I’ve not watched the video in question. I’ve read the back and forth on his page and he seems aware of the impact it has had on a few viewers and I think that’s great. He’s a funny guy, he’s a thoughtful guy, and I can say with 100% certainty that his intent was never to hurt people in any community. We’ve all said things on the internet before we grew and learned. He’s showing his true colors, and they’re wonderful. I think the Youtube community is better for him being in it.

I’m going to cry.

"I think what we need is a colorblind society." Now folks, when you hear somebody say that you know you’re listening to a racist…

- Jane Elliot and Oprah Winfrey discussing racism in 1992 on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

THIS WAS IN

1992

NINETEEN FUCKING NINETY-TWO

Jane Elliot is the fucking truth

she goes “i know this maybe hard for you because white males are accustomed to telling people things not listening to people so let me break it down for you”

i have died and she has resurrected me

There was a time in the early 90’s where people were really talking about race and what it meant to be black.
