The classic doll color test performed with a white child, complete with the parent’s
The little girl even says she picked the white figures as the good child because it “looks like me” and the dark girl as bad because “she’s dark”. When Soledad O’Brien asks the girl’s mother about it, we’re met with quite a few colorblind based excuses and “well, we just don’t talk about race”.
“We don’t talk about race!!”
And your kid is saying racist shit regardless.
That should fucking tell you something, lady.
But of course, it won’t. I bet you cash money she won’t change a thing, continuing to use that color blind bullshit.
This is why the whole idea of not discussing race with white children is bullshit. No, it won’t “taint” them. When you don’t talk about it, they still form opinions — racist ones — because they don’t know any better, so to speak. Then one day they grow up into adults that are, guess what, still racist. As Black folks, we pretty much all had “the talk” as kids/young people; our existence in this society dictates that we do, because racism is a part of our lives at an incredibly young age. Colorblind ideology has been proven to be toxic as blatant racism. And little white kids can be just as racist as their parents.
we dont talk about race with kids but a small child ran up to my professor’s wife and said she had a terrorist baby.
we dont talk about race with kids but white children were encouraged to go to lynchings to see white supremacy. because (trigger warning: graphic details) jesse washington, whose charred body is floating around on tumblr posts, had his teeth yanked out by white children so they could sell them as lynching souvenirs.
we dont talk about race with kids but kids clearly PICK UP ON RACE. many POC parents dont explicitly discuss race but clearly, white ppl, kids pick up on it!!
I always wondered why clowns use afro wigs. I’m sure there is a racist reason behind it. Ill look it up.
I literally just thought about this and am now…
1. If you are two people of the same non-white ethnicity, you will automatically get along. And also, if you are two people who could potentially be sexually attracted to each other, you WILL get set up. And by “ethnicity” I mean “white definitions of ethnicity,” such as “Chinese” being the same as “Japanese” and “West Indian” being the same thing as “Nigerian” etc. Because clearly, if you look alike to a white person, you must procreate.
2. It’s a compliment for a white person to say, “oh, but you don’t act *insert ethnicity*.” This is because somehow, acting white (or denying your differences from white people) is the most progressive thing a POC can do. Apparently.
3. It’s a compliment to be able to have a “discussion” about a POC’s ethnicity. and by “discussion,” I mean “rambling on about things said white person thinks are accurate and are really just an amalgam of stereotypes and misinformation and then demanding the POC affirm said beliefs.”
4. POC can only be accurately physically described by their ethnicity. Example: “You know, Kara, that Asian girl in our Con Law class.” White people, of course, are described by their independent looks, like ‘Kara, that girl with the blonde hair and the hippy skirts with the tiny tiny lips.” This is because if you don’t actually SAY “Asian” or “Black” or “Hispanic,” and just say, “Kara, that girl with the black hair and the cool jeans,” people will automatically assume you mean, “Kara, that white girl with the black hair and the cool jeans.”
5. It is perfectly acceptable to make vast assumptions on the physical characteristics of ethnicities, and use them as judgment guides for dating. Ex: ”I don’t like Black guys” is totally acceptable. Saying, “I don’t like white guys” is fucked up, because, “WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE LOOK SO DIFFERENT HOW CAN YOU GENERALIZE.”
6. If you are white, eating sushi makes you totally cosmopolitan. If you are Asian, eating sushi is something you automatically are born doing, much like using chopsticks and also being good at math.
7. It’s OK to talk about ethnicities in a negative way, as long as you do it in a WHISPER. ex: “Well, I didn’t want to say anything but he’s…*Black*.”
8. At the end of the day, white privilege doesn’t exist because POCs asking for equal rights takes away the rights of white people. Because equality means fucking with the status quo, and things are TOTALLY OK NOW THAT WE HAVE NO SLAVERY AND NO SEGREGATION.
Really weird things that POC assume about white people that really make no sense at all but are never questioned:
- ALL white people are racist idiots, obviously
Did you actually reblog this post from me and add this bullshit to it?
Did you really?
I don’t personally assume that all white people are racist idiots, but I do assume that people like you who need to turn a post about race and assumptions that POC face on a daily basis (hourly if you work/live in a place with lots of uninlightened white people who may not be racist but are definitely not doing right) into something about white people.
You don’t have to worry if the POC around you will look at you and think you’re a racist. Not until you open your mouth and derail a discussion that’s not about you.
I as a POC have to worry that the white people around me will let me know that I’m cool because I don’t act my race. I have to worry that they’ll touch my skin and hair without my consent because it’s exotic. I have to worry that people I come into contact with won’t see me as an actual person because I’m a POC.
I don’t assume that “all white people are racist idiots. obviously.”
But you might be.
(And newsflash because I read your tags. It’s not “racist” against white people by pointing out the all to real assumptions that POC deal with on a regular basis. It’s not racist to point out racism. Fuck that noise.)
The tags in question:
White people don’t experience racism. Clearly you KNOW that POC “have had to deal with WAY more crap than white people,” but you obviously don’t care because otherwise you wouldn’t have derailed this post to talk about your white person problems.
And that colorblind argument you’ve got going in your tags is racist. Stop denying POC the experiences that have shaped their lives.
its kind of rude to say all white people think these things when thats not the case. thats all she was trying to say.
It’s really kind of rude to derail and entire conversation about the marginalization and stereotypes that POCs face everyday by making it about how awful it for white people. You sound like a whiny cheerleader, complaining about a broken nail, to a kid who’s in a motherfucking wheelchair after a car accident.
i didn’t say anything about how awful anything is for white people. i actually would vehemently disagree with the statement, but it doesn’t change the fact that you are using unnecessarily cruel and vulgar language. im sorry if i have ruined the conversation you were trying to create with your list.
Oh look, like I really care when it comes to “vulgar” language when it comes to DESCRIBING THE RACISM AND STEREOTYPES I DEAL WITH EVERY DAY.
I am SO NOT sorry I have offended your delicate white sensibilities. And I will NOT accept your ridiculously self-important “apology” that reads more like some sort of stiff, white reprimand about speaking my feelings than it does any sort of REGRET.
Oh look, yet another tone-policing racist-apologist hellbent on prettying things up and missing the point by POINTING FINGERS FOR CUSSING.
WELL FUCK THAT, YOU MOTHERFUCKING RACIST APOLOGIST. I don’t care what sort of douchefuckery goes on in your fucking ignorant head; attacking me for attacking racism makes you look like a motherfucking idiot high on their own self importance. You think the word FUCK is offensive? Whoooboy. If that’s the ONE THING you can latch on to in a discussion between POCs about this bullshit they face every day, then there really is NO HOPE for you at all.
Yeah, I said it. Yeah I’m angry. So fucking what? You can go shut the fuck up now.
don’t worry, you haven’t offended me. i’m sorry my apology came off like a reprimand, is there anything i can do to fix that? i’m not entirely sure what part of it caused you offense.
Oh my god. I fucking spelled out exactly why I was fucking pissed off. I honestly do not give a fuck if I offend you. Why would you think that fucking matters?
And also, I said you could shut the fuck up. Please do. For some reason, you just keep on replying and replying, trying to white-splain away your fucking ignorant and racist attitude. Did you not see the last two posts? Jesus fucking CHRIST. I really don’t know how much more obvious I can get than “attacking me for attacking racism makes you look like a motherfucking idiot high on their own self-importance.”
Jesus. Somebody collect this cracka.
Getting excited over nonstandard features in someone’s speech or writing, but feeling reluctant to ask them questions because you don’t want them to take it as criticism.
True story, Joe. I actually asked my waitress last night where she was from because she had a really unique accent, and found out she actually had had a speech impediment and a British vocal coach to fix it, so the result amounted to something like an Eastern European or South African accent. And I started to apologize, but then we got on this big talk about linguistics because apparently, she was pretty knowledgeable on the subject! (Moreso than me, anyway. :x)
That’s awesome! Sometimes people are really proud of their language varieties, and want to tell you all about them. I know not everyone feels that way, though, so I always feel at least slightly awkward about asking.
I can honestly say that having a white person come up to me and ask me “where are you from,” no matter what their intention, is probably one of the most offensive, unintentionally racist things that occurs on a day to day basis.
I feel really weird because I feel like white academia studying my culture and my ethnicity and the whole Chinese diaspora turns it all into this OBJECT that some British dude with a monocle can peer and and go “FASCINATING.”
But seriously: word to the wise, my white linguist friends: No matter what your intention is, asking an Asian person “where are you from” is a practice rooted in a lot of really racist stereotypes and problematic historical conflict.
So…please don’t. Unless they volunteer the information, don’t. There’s this whole history of treating Asian culture as this thing to be boxed up and looked at, like a curio in a bookshelf. Ooohing and Ahhhing about my “nonstandard speech patterns” (and, by the way, the phrasing of that really bothers me, because what the hell do you know, it’s motherfucking standard in the fucking Philippines where English is the official language, you know; again, it’s pointing out normativity and some sort of weird…thing. I don’t know. It really strikes me as…problematic.) is honestly really grating and something I would feel objectified by.
And the classic
“No, where are you REALLY from?”
URGH YES I KNOW RIGHT, I’M SORRY, I’M AN AMERICAN CITIZEN BY BIRTH I DO NOT KNOW OF THIS FANTASTICAL “REALLY FROM” PLEASE OF WHICH YOU SPEAK.
Understandable concern, but I think we can all agree that Joe is the kind of linguist who is fighting very hard against preconceived notions of what is “better” speech and what is not. Certainly there is a time and a place to be asking questions about speech patterns, and generally out in public asking random strangers is not one of them.
But I can also understand how Joe feels, because sometimes you hear something and it just tingles the senses…lil’ wayne’s southern accent is my personal favorite…I can listen to his songs for hours just to listen to the speech patterns.
Okay, this is coming from a half-latina black who has faced this question for the whole of my fucking life:
Don’t ask me. Unless I am already giving the information, do not fucking ask me.
There is so much tension involved in the way I speak that it’s just a sensitive subject for me. White people ask me where I’m from. Black people ask me where I’m from. LatinX people ask me where I’m from. Everyone does, really, but these three groups hurt me the most.
White people ask me to understand me socially.
Black people ask me to understand me racially.
LatinX people ask me to understand me culturally.
And to all these people I don’t fit in just because of the way I speak. They can’t put me into their box. Linguistics is just another large box, one you’ve carved little cubby holes into that you’re still going to try to fit me into.
I’m not hating on linguistics. It’s cool, I get it. But if another white boy who has been to Argentina and feels like he knows Spanish linguistics well enough to analyze my broken-Dominican-America/Americalatina-influenced dialect enough to declare where I fit in, then I will blow my fucking mind.
I don’t fucking care about your fascination. You don’t get to talk about something so touchy with me just because you’re fascinated. You don’t get to say “oh, you don’t say it like they do,” because guess what? They‘ve already told me this. They told me this my whole life and ostracized me and have/will put me through many identity crises. You don’t get to tickle my spine just because you’re fucking fascinated.
Don’t ask. Don’t ask. DON’T ASK.
Let them offer the information. Often to someone’s “non-standard” accent is a “non-standard” way of beating treated that is very closely connected to the question, “why do you talk like that?”
One of my ex-boyfriends had aspergers and when he was obsessed with linguistics he would literally listen to accents for hours. So, if it is really true that you are so fascinated by someone else’s accent (even though your accent is perfectly available to be evaluated and you as a linguist should find it equally intriguing…), that you insist upon listening to them for hours on end, then you might want to get consulted for autism.
I’m looking for where I said that it is an okay question to ask people, and I can’t find it. I said I understand the desire to ask, and the social implications that come along with asking. I even said that there is a time and place which is NOT out and about on the streets in public settings. Specifically the correct time and place would be in an academic setting, like when you’ve asked people to be a part of survey involving different speech patterns and they’re fully aware that they are partaking in a study.
So can I ask you why it seems that you are upset with me? I’m getting that from the words you’ve used, but you also may just be passionate about this specific aspect of discrimination based on your lived experiences. I can understand being passionate.
As well, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t attempt to offer suggestions as to my mental state when you don’t know anything about me. I’ll afford you the same courtesy.
1. I am passionate.
2. I am not directing this toward you, specifically, but for any linguist, professional or self-proclaimed, who thinks asking is ever okay. Ever. I don’t care if it’s in an academic setting (to me that would seem even more unprofessional).
3. Don’t sit there and act like when you said “there’s a time and a place,” you meant specifically the academic setting. Because then you would have said in the academic setting. And not, you know, what you said.
4. The anecdote about my ex was satire. I was skeptical of your hours-on-end fascination with linguistics, one you used to justify (or as you call it “understand”) why others would desire to know about the accent of another.
You don’t get to be ambiguous in your argument just so you can in the future refer to something you never said. What you implied was this:
“I see you’re angry, but I’m sure Joe wouldn’t ask in an incorrect setting. Plus, Joe is really fascinated. See, I’m fascinated just like Joe! There’s no reason to be angry here.”
Really, you just need to realize that if you’re making people feel angry, maybe you should change your behavior. I’m not choosing to be passionate about this. You’re (linguistics who ask this question, ever) striking a nerve. So how about you analyze what’s happening right now and consider changing your behavior.
Why can’t you analyze your own dialect? You know yourself best.
To add to pedazito’s point:
Being “fascinated” by a POC’s accent is, in general, a statement fraught with…icky feelings.
Like, being told any aspect of your culture is fascinating by a white person is like…really fucking triggering.
Because it turns you into like…a specimen. To be examined. Like I said, it makes me feel like a bug pinned to a card. It turns me into an object to be explored.
And also, you say “academic setting” and then use “listening to Lil Wayne’s music hours on end” because you’re so FASCINATED by his accent.
I mean, ‘scuze me, that’s not academic. And ok, you’re not directly asking Lil Wayne about his motherfucking roots or whatever, fine. But you’ve probably (and correct me if this is just an assumption based on your use of the word “fascinating”) attempted to research his origins in a way to catalogue his accent and pigeonhole it. Because let’s be real here: it’s pretty much a given that you will never be able to physically approach Lil Wayne and be like “yo, tell me about your formative roots for my linguistic quest of knowledge of your kind.”
I just…the idea of me speaking and singing and performing (and, really, I am a performance artist so this comes up a lot) and somebody doing surreptitious RESEARCH on me and my origins severely freaks me out. It’s like, as pedazito said, a way to pigeonhole me and put me in my place. It’s like saying I’m a freak. I’m freakish. I’m not what you expected and that’s FASCINATING.
As I see it, from a legal perspective, when you release a recording to the public, the public can do as they see fit with it as long as they do not use it for financial gain or defamatory purposes.
The most research I’ve ever done is check his wikipedia page. Are you really saying it’s impossible to be fascinated with the way a person speaks and still see them as a person/individual/human being?
II’m saying that two POCs have discussed why they feel triggered and sick at the idea of someone being “fascinated” with their “accent” and you should just deal with the fact that you are triggering us by talking about accents in such an objectifying and frankly, dehumanizing, way. And by “Deal with it” I mean “stop.”
Also, too: the legality of some sources of “what exactly are your roots” is questionable. And that’s what we’re talking about here. We’re not talking about just LISTENING to Lil Wayne’s music.
We’re talking about trying to pin down what makes a person non-normative in a scientific way to explain away their non-normativity.
I don’t need you to “tolerate” me. I don’t want you to merely put up with my presence. All I ask, all I have ever asked, is to be treated as a human being, that bigoted jingoism is not injected into every minute facet my life, that there remains at least the illusion of decency.
my floor ✌
your floor is racist ✌
No, it isn’t, it is a flag. A flag is not racist. A person is rasict. A statement can be considered racist. Now if the flag were branded with racial slurs or other means of hatred, I could understand, however, it does not.
hoooooooooooboy i’m going to need you to unfollow me right now
the confederate flag is racist because it was the flag used by the confederate armies who were doing what? oh yeah fighting for their right to enslave, torture, and murder people based on their race!
i bet you’d agree that a flag with a swastika on it was racist. this is the same situation.
Okay, so this flag was the flag that represented the Confederate States of America- I believe they first started using it in 1863 or 1864- either way it was introduced during the Civil War. So it doesn’t quite represent Southern “states”- it represented the states that succeeded from the United States. So technically it’s not a symbol of the Southern states, it’s a symbol of succession and the nation they claimed to have formed. A lot of people used it as an alternate to the the American flag.
BUT- and here’s why in my opinion this flag has become a symbol of hate- it didn’t gain popularity or much recognition until the mid 20th century particularly during WWII and in the time following it. During the Civil Right’s movement, Southern’s who were opposed to desegregation began displaying it to represent their opposition to federal laws (ie their resistance to the North). And then of course the KKK and other hate groups have embraced the flag as well (for the very reason listed above).
factual burn!if it was all about southern pride, black southerners would have this flag. and funny how no one ever flies the first flag. hmm.
There were southern blacks that willing fought for this flag, and there’s pictures to prove it.
Being forced to fight doesn’t count.
What sense does it make to give a man a gun that doesn’t want to fight? He could just shot you and leave. A lot that fought, fought willingly.
you do realize that what you’re saying makes absolutely no sense, right
the few enslaved black people that did fight in the confederacy chose to do so because they were offered their freedom (some were offered freedom for their families)
it was also a social mobility thing?
it’s not because they just loved antebellum slavery so much that they fought to keep the institution, it’s because being in the war offered them opportunities that they didn’t have access to before
and honestly, it’s not about ‘Oh he could just shoot you and leave’ because there were thousands of other white officers who would have been more than happy to kill all the rebellious black people who tried that
you really need to leave this conversation because you make no sense
you do realize i already addressed everything you’re trying to cite in this link, but i mean nothing i say will make any difference to you
you’re holding so tightly to your racism that literally everything i say to you will be met with “but but black people fought for the confederacy” as though this isn’t something i’ve already acknowledged and responded to
your “source” consists of twenty two bulleted instances of black slaves fighting in the confederacy.
which i have already acknowledged and responded to.
i’ll address a few of the points here:
In March 1865, Judah P. Benjamin, Confederate Secretary Of State, promised freedom for blacks who served from the State of Virginia. Authority for this was finally received from the State of Virginia and on April 1st 1865, $100 bounties were offered to black soldiers. Benjamin exclaimed, “Let us say to every Negro who wants to go into the ranks, go and fight, and you are free…Fight for your masters and you shall have your freedom.” Confederate Officers were ordered to treat them humanely and protect them from “injustice and oppression”.
wowowowowowowow it’s almost like that thing i said where black slaves were offered rewards to fight for the confederacy and then did because they might be offered money and amnesty
it’s almost like… i already addressed your asinine bullshit!
Recently the National Park Service, with a recent discovery, recognized that blacks were asked to help defend the city of Petersburg, Virginia and were offered their freedom if they did so. Regardless of their official classification, black Americans performed support functions that in today’s army many would be classified as official military service. The successes of white Confederate troops in battle, could only have been achieved with the support these loyal black Southerners.
offered their freedom you say? wow it’s almost like that thing i said where black slaves were offered freedom to fight for the confederacy…
A quota was set for 300,000 black soldiers for the Confederate States Colored Troops. 83% of Richmond’s male slave population volunteered for duty. A special ball was held in Richmond to raise money for uniforms for these men. Before Richmond fell, black Confederates in gray uniforms drilled in the streets. Due to the war ending, it is believed only companies or squads of these troops ever saw any action. Many more black soldiers fought for the North, but that difference was simply a difference because the North instituted this progressive policy more sooner than the more conservative South. Black soldiers from both sides received discrimination from whites who opposed the concept .
hmm i seem to have addressed this one too, but whatever, you so “graciously” provided this link (which i have already read several times in the past) so i’ll keep going in no particular order
Free black musicians, cooks, soldiers and teamsters earned the same pay as white confederate privates. This was not the case in the Union army where blacks did not receive equal pay. At the Confederate Buffalo Forge in Rockbridge County, Virginia, skilled black workers “earned on average three times the wages of white Confederate soldiers and more than most Confederate army officers ($350- $600 a year).
wow, so you mean people were offered EQUAL COMPENSATION (which was a huge fucking deal, although it was offered in order to keep an oppressive racist slave system in place) to fight? which meant they might have more social mobility and the ability to access things they had no access to before???? Wowowowowowowowow
bottom line: yes, people see and understand that black people were present in the confederate army. it’s also incredibly important to acknowledge the reasons WHY they were there in the first place.
Dear Folks Telling People of Color What Is Racist,
You don’t get to decide that. Ever.
You don’t get to police the feelings of people of color.
You don’t get to tell another human being how they should feel.
You don’t get to make another human being feel bad for standing up for herself.
Shut up. Listen. Learn.
Or go fuck yourself.
Choice is yours.
WTF White Privilege
While Asians are seen as the “Model” minority, it’s their “Model” status that so often works against them. People will rightly claim that Asians make more money and ignorantly claim that Asians are totes the smartest people ever, they overlook the fact that Asians are human beings. Flawed, amazing, ignorant and genius.
The problem here starts where most racial problems start, the generalities. “Asian” covers a lot of ground. A LOT. The problem is that if you are a fan of statistics, you will see a pattern of life as an Asian being super awesome and fantastic. If you read nothing but statistics, you would believe Asians not only have it all figured out but are some sort of super beings.
Some of you may read that and think, “Well, as stereotypes go, this doesn’t sound so bad.” Which leads to the foolish myth that there could actually be good or positive stereotypes.
Except, these very stereotypes cause a world of problems for Asians that are rarely discussed. For example, since they’re seen as being just the smartest peoples ever, it seems to be considered perfectly acceptable to require an Asian student to have higher test scores than any other student in order to get into college. Then, there’s the myth of Asians being the all knowing, all powerful, mystical herb farmers who can heal any wound, stop any pain and clear up any rash. Also something an ignorant person might consider a “Good” stereotype. Except, this overlooks the fact that Vietnamese American and Korean American women suffer some of the highest rates of cervical cancer in the nation and Vietnamese American men die from liver cancer at a rate seven times that of white men. The statistics though, they say that Asians are some of the most healthy people in the USA.
This leads back to the generalization of “Asians.” Like I said, that covers a lot of territory. Literally. So much so, there is very little that fairly depicts Asians in an accurate light. At least, if you’re reading statistics. Because “Asian” covers so many people, so many different sub-groups within the larger group, it seems to all even out in the wash. Frankly, if you look solely at the numbers, the “Wash” brings down those that are doing well, which takes something away from their hard work. While bringing up those that may be in desperate need of help but aren’t getting it because ya know…Asians don’t need it and stuff.
Okay I am posting this just because I want to save it and keep it for future reference. There is nothing in here that hasn’t been said before. Please print this out and put it on your damn fridge or in your first aid kits along with a set of pliers to pull your own damn teeth out when you can’t handle saying the same shit 20 times a day to grown white people.
White folks like to do heinous shit and blame it on mysterious generic black men and women. This isn’t just a dated thing from some long ass time ago, this is a current and normalized trend and here are just some of the biggest stories I could find.
Okay, let’s look at some examples of white people doing shady insane shit and blaming generic black men and women.
okay? Remember Bethany Sorro?
Bethany Sorro claimed a black woman threw acid on her face. Turned out to be a hoax - there was no black woman attacker, she did it to herself.
How about Bryan Douglas Wells, the pizza-delivery man turned bank robber?
He told a bank that three black men had tied a bomb under his neck in order to rob a bank. Turns out he and his white friends were full of shit, but that didn’t stop them from accidentally detonating the bomb and killing him in the process.
Or hey, how bout Susan Smith?
The white woman who murdered her own children and then claimed a black man had done it? Huh, sounds familiar. Turns out she didn’t really like her own damn kids.
Or Charles Stuart who killed his own wife n kids and then claimed a generic young black man had enacted this horrific tragedy on his whole damn family?
He only got caught because his brother admitted to helping him kill his wife n kids, and up until then the police had booked a slough of young black male suspects in hopes of pinning this shit on someone.
or Ashley Todd,
who, in the midst of the 2008 US presidential election, claimed a black Obama supporter had attacked her in a politically-motivated “mugging.” Turns out, she was full of shit.
or Philidelphia Police Sgt. Robert Ralston, who claimed a black man shot him in the foot?
But actually he admitted to shooting himself in the foot, and had to reason when questioned why.
Or how about, Conrad Zdzierak, this white man from Ohio who robbed banks:
dressed in this black mask:
so that he would look like a black dude:
and so that, he would hope, a black man would be arrested and charged in his place?
So, can I just say, I and any other folks of color who ain’t got no fucking time for you and your white tears have good cause. I’ll reserve my damn judgement for when yall aint consistently full of shit.
Okay. If you know more of these stories please add them and feel free to edit this post. I came back and added a few based on stories I simply had not noticed.
Thank you, this has been a post.
I hate the Bethany Storro one for so many reasons the amount of shit I saw the web from everyone saying how jealous Black women are of white women and when I say everyone I mean everyone including Black men. This one guy made a video on youtube and he took it down when it was revealed she was lying.
Anyway I have a few more Phantom Negro cases to add
The suburban mom arrested at Disney World after calling in a hoax kidnapping of her daughter nearly three years ago was sentenced to 100 months in jail after she was convicted of stealing more than $1million from her boss and a relative. But it wasn’t long before she was found and arrested at the Florida theme park.Bonnie Sweeten triggered a nationwide search in 2009 after calling 911 to say she and her nine-year-old daughter had been and abducted near Philadelphia by two black men and was calling 911 from the trunk of a black Cadillac when she actually was in a airport terminal buying southbound tickets to Florida
Told the police that he had driven from Ontario to Chicago to purchase tickets for he and his wife to attend Oprah’s farewell show. The day before the taping of the show he had been mugged by two men “one African=American and one Hispanic”he told them and the stole his tickets.
The police soon found out that he was lying and there he never had any tickets he was too much of a punk bitch to tell his wife the truth so he made up the mugging in hopes he would be reimbursed.
17-year-old man stabbed his friend in the neck as she was sleeping. The girl, 17-year-old Jasmyn Tully of Tukwila, WA, was sleeping when her friend allegedly felt the “urge to hurt someone” according to a Tukwila detective. He tried to strangle her as she was sleeping, and when she put up a fight, he proceeded to stab her in the neck. While the young man later claimed he was high at the time and had spent a majority of the day on drugs, he initially tried to use the “blame the black man” excuse to no avail. His uncle told KOMO News the following:

NEW YORK-Mary Turcotte, a white 26-year old Nun from the Apostles of Infinite Love in Brooklyn has admitted that she lied about being raped by a Black man in the snow to cover up for a consensual sexual encounter she had at with a bodega worker. The New York Daily News reports:
After a police search for a hulking black man was launched, the 26-year-old white woman from the Apostles of Infinite Love convent in East Flatbush recanted, the sources said.
When a penitent Turcotte recanted, her excuse was that she needed a story to cover up a real sexual encounter: bedding a shop worker she sneaked into the convent through the back door, sources said.
Oh and non Black people of colour
Kashif Parvaiz admitted to orchestrating the killing of his wife, Nazish Noorani, with his mistress, Antoinette Stephen.
Noorani and Parvaiz were both shot in the Boonton, New Jersey but police began to suspect he was involved after they discovered flaws in his story. Parvais’s original story had police suspicious of a hate crime after he claimed three Black men shot him and his wife while yelling “terrorists.”
The Bend Bulletin reports:
Parvaiz, according to prosecutors, initially described a trio of attackers: one white, one black and one whose race he said he could not determine. He later changed his story, describing all three as black, before finally admitting to setting up the shooting, according to his arrest affidavit.
