Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today.TemperedFury on Philip DeFranco’s, creator of the YouTube channel Philly D, use of racialized language.

I wish I could say I’m shocked or I can’t believe it, but anyone who knows me well (there are a few), knows I’ve never gotten along well with my brother.
He just sucks at life.
So when he felt compelled to be condescending and belittle me by posting sensitive, irrelevant, personal, family information on a fb wall post that should have just been a discussion of politics, of course I got angry. I called him out without really saying anything.
I just let him keep responding because only an idiot thinks like that.
He had absolutely no right to call me the fuck up just because I’m a 25 yr old living at home. I hold down 2-3 jobs constantly. I quit going to bars. I help pay bills when my parents are in a rough spot. And I definitely, most positively am in a better place than he was when he was 25.
Which was a 25 year old with an accidental child and ex wife, filing for bankruptcy because he couldn’t and still can’t, manage his money.
He’s so lucky I don’t feel like mirroring his attack for the entire fb world to see.
He sucks. How am I related to this idiot? Did my dad accidentally take home the wrong baby? Where did this neocolonial conservative republican white-apologist bigot come from. I mean… DAMN SMH
I strongly identify with wood elves because I too like to drink wine and talk about how men are failing
