Let’s make this viral.
"Racism is a mental illness", why must campaigns of all types always use "mental illness"? Racism is not a mental illness. Racism is a belief system based on confirmation bias and other variables, there are logical explanations for racism, right down to the fact that people are just stubborn, have a sense of cultural/economical superiority and people cling to beliefs as a safeguard.
Stop. Using. Mental illness. To Disassociate. Shit.
I really liked this post but I do agree that by calling racism a mental illness it isn’t only disrespectful and down right shitty to sufferers of mental illness it makes racism sound excusable and makes it less the fault of the racist and more just something that happens.

a magician asks you to pick a card - any card, in fact. you do. they ask you to put the card back in the pack - anywhere in the pack, in fact. you do. they walk away. ten years later, your wife gives birth to the six of clubs. “is this your card?” the midwife asks, in a familiar voice.
what the fuck
No it was the 3 of diamonds. In fact.
