If you’re going to say something and decide to add “I’m not being racist” to it,
don’t say it.
For godsake, what is so hard about that?
"I’m not being racist, but racistracistbullshitracist" is not okay.
Same goes for anyone making sexist or transphobic or any form of insensitive remarks and then saying “oh, I didn’t mean it offensively”.
"My comment brings to mind all the horrible things my people did to your people, things that still occur today. But I meant it as a joke, and clearly my opinion is superior, so it’s completely okay."
What the fuck is wrong with you?
