Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are asking people to buy sweatshirts promoting violence against police officers and classifying all white people as racists.
“Racism,” claims one hoodie’s page, “is a set of systematic, institutional, cultural, and epistemological (although not limited to said forms) structures [sic] that inherently empowers white folk and in turn disimpowers [sic] people of color. This power dictates who lives, have housing, access to education/healthcare etc. Racism has little to do with hatred and mostly to do with who has power.”
Maybe they should learn to spell before calling for a race war.
“This is why white men created race in the first place—to maintain power.”
Attention! Black men: if you’re talking about dismantling a system, you better include patriarchy,” reads one hoodie. “You can’t be a revolutionary and homophobic,” reads another.
“White folk or those who see themselves as white are given said power inherently regardless of socioeconomic class, education etc. This is why white men created race in the first place—to maintain power. Racism gave birth to the idea of race. This is a [sic] oversimplified definition,” the description continues.
Facebook has already removed an original picture of the sweatshirt for not following Facebook’s Community Standards. However, as of this writing, Facebook has yet to remove the post selling the sweatshirts.
One of the sweatshirt says “If I Encounter Another Cop With A God Complex I’m Going To Have To Show The World That They Are Human”, seemingly promoting violence towards police.
