The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America. 

via Vice:

What the person running the Twitter account probably failed to realize is that most people’s interactions with the cops fall into a few categories:

1. You are talking to them to get help after you or someone you knew was robbed, beaten, murdered, or sexually assaulted.

2. You are getting arrested. 

3. You are getting beaten by the police.

In category 1, you are probably not going to be like, “Oh, let me take a selfie with you fine officers so I can remember this moment,” and the other two categories are not things that the NYPD would like people on social media talking about. Additionally, the people who use Twitter a lot (and who aren’t Sonic the Hedgehog roleplayers) are the type who love fucking with authority figures. In any case, #myNYPD quickly became a trending topic in the United States, largely because people were tweeting and retweeting horrific images of police brutality perpetrated by New York City cops.

In which the NYPD’s attempt at “public relations” backfires tremendously.

It’s only been a day and I’m really sick of the results of the new Avril Lavigne video. I know it wasn’t a good video but most of the people on tumblr are being complete asses by saying that a white girl shouldn’t dress in Japanese culture or that she is 29 and should grow up.

This offends me.

Why does this offend me? Because if I had as much money as her I would buy all the Japanese clothing items I could and dress like that every day! Tumblr is telling her she can’t dress like that because she’s a white girl and that means you’re telling me I can’t dress like that because I am a white girl! Well screw you! I happen to like Harajuku fashion styles because I feel like they best embody my personality and spirit!

White girls can be decora, lolita, and any other form of “kawaii” all they want just as much as the Japanese girls can

also also I know the song is a little tacky and weeabooish but I like it because it’s something sweet between me and my boyfriend and we both will sing the Japanese parts to each other to be silly.

fashion is not what this discussion is about and your unwillingness to recognize overt racism and appropriation is gross as fuck.

the song isn’t “a little tacky,” it’s incredibly racist — it’s equating an entire people with brand names and “cutesy” traits. it’s using racist stereotypes (“you so silly!”) and attempting to portray all of Japan as being nothing more than bright dresses and Hello Kitty. it’s lavigne sprinkling her asinine lyrics with Japanese words, simultaneously disrespecting the language and those who speak it by acting like it is merely another cutesy accessory, something to “spice up” English.

her video is fucking racist as hell. she puts straight-faced, robotic Japanese dancers behind her as props to get the point across — “Hello Kitty is Japanese and Japanese people are so EXOTIC and Japan is SO KAWAII!11!” she does not see these people as people, she sees them as part of a fashion statement. this is a fetishization and thus a trivialization of an entire race. it perpetuates the disgusting idea that Japan is just a place to go for fun clothes and candy and cartoons, rather than a nation of human beings with a complex and rich history and culture.

"Why does this offend me? Because if I had as much money as her I would buy all the Japanese clothing items I could and dress like that every day!

as a white person, you have no right to be offended in this situation. a white person is in the wrong here and people of color are being hurt by it. you are offended because you want to participate in the same shitty behavior as lavigne and you can’t stand being called out for your problematic ideology and being told for once in your life that you can’t wear a culture. Harajuku is more than fashion, and if you can’t respect that, you have no right to wear clothing inspired by it.

"White girls can be decora, lolita, and any other form of “kawaii” all they want just as much as the Japanese girls can"

you might wear these outfits, but you cannot be these things. you are white. white people have colonized and stolen identities from a horrifying number of cultures, and yet you refuse to acknowledge that, for historical and modern reasons, you should not perpetuate this. you don’t care that people of color are being accessorized or that you’re making people uncomfortable, you just want to get your way and are throwing a tantrum for being called out. you cannot cope with your privilege being denied.

"it’s something sweet between me and my boyfriend and we both will sing the Japanese parts to each other to be silly."

ah, yes, because Japanese words are so silly!! and reducing an entire culture is so sweet! just because your white ass and your boyfriend like to sing a racist song doesn’t undo its racism. get out of here.
