This is racist tumblr user w/ 500,000 followers or whatever, “pizza“‘s “niggastories" tag. She deleted it but the pages were already saved in archives (hi, this is the internet). Half of the evidence is here. White people can use their privilege and energy to explain why this is racist and not just "immature" or "rude" or "embarrassing for her", but instead racist, and harmful, and hurtful and degrading and anxiety inducing to the people it hurts. This, instead of redirecting the focus onto HER and how bad it makes her look or "feel", keeps the focus on the fact that it’s really hurtful to Black people and not on how she feels when she’s being weird and racist.
And I know she apologized but “this was immature, this was rude" is not the apology you give for being racist.. It’s not that hard to say "this was racist" when it clearly was. You don’t apologize for running over someone’s foot by saying "I’m sorry I was immature, this is embarrassing for me". You apologize for how you hurt them and recognize that you hurt them in the way that you hurt them "Sorry I ran over your foot, it was wrong of me and it hurt you and I’m sorry”.
The internet never forgets, honey. And you done fucked up big time, and ruined a perfectly good URL with your racist ass while you were at it.
