The Racism Needs to Stop
1stAug 7, 2019
- Hello TG,
I just wanted to address something that bothered me yesterday, and now even more today: how hypocritical TG is in regard to racism.
Here is what I mean: For the past few seasons of Big Brother, we have been exposed to houseguests making racist comments about their fellow housemates. When this info is given to the public, they instantly face backlash and have even lost their jobs in the past (BB15). We see blogs on here calling them out and disliking them.
However, when someone on this site makes a racist remark, it is talked about for an hour, or even a day, and is forgotten. Could you imagine a BB houseguest talking about how they agree with Hitler or tell someone with a Middle Eastern descent to “go blow something up”? They’d be facing so much backlash, but it’s just another day here on TG.
And before you say, “BB houseguests are on national TV, they should know better and deserve more hate”, I have to disagree. Nobody should speak so derogatorily toward other human beings, No matter if two people hear it or thousands hear it, it’s still racist and we should all know better. I don’t care if “you would never say these things irl”, you’re still saying them to someone online who has feelings & emotions and has likely heard racial slurs like this before. It doesn’t make racist remarks “acceptable” if you’re saying them online or in front of a small group.
Lastly, it’s ridiculous & embarrassing to see how fast some people here are so ready to jump to racist remarks when they are in an argument. What would your friends and family say if they saw you speaking like this? Are you truly that illogical you can’t think of a proper response, so you resort to racial remarks? This isn’t just about GentlemanG and Blitszims, I’ve seen at least a dozen other TGers make remarks just as bad as their's.
I know this likely means very little coming from a white male like myself, but I’ve seen & heard my friend Fighterman get called terrible things for years now. I don’t care if you dislike a person, it doesn’t give you an excuse to make racist remarks toward them. Idc if there isn't a mod to punish you for it, you should just know to not do it...
