Anonymous asked: How is making white people jokes not racist, but making black jokes racist?
because of history.
(Nightingale, Field Nurse, Yuki Higashiura, written by Hiroshi Suzuki)
hoy me levanté con ésta canción en la cabeza, de cuando morrissey era bueno.
"Let’s see. I wonder if I can remember the staple ones that I was told. First, there was the house with a room in which a series of people insisted on passing the night; and each of them in the morning was found kneeling in a acorner, and had just time to say, "I’ve seen it", and died"
"Wasn’t that the house in Berkeley Square?"
"I dare say it was. Then there was the man who heard a noise in the passage at night, opened his door, and saw someone crawling towards him on all fours with his eye hanging out on his cheek. There was besides, let me think - Yes! the room where a man was found dead with a horseshoe mark on his forehead, and the floor under the bed was covered with marks of horseshoes also; I don’t know why. Also there was the lady who, on locking her bedroom door in a strange house, head a thin voice among the bed-curtains say, "Now we’re shut in for the night". None of those had any explanation of sequel. I wonder if they go on still, those stories."
