do you ever think about how weird reading is
our eyes are able to scan these different symbols and construct the scenarios and concepts they describe in our mind
and these concepts have the power to twist our emotions and make us cry and laugh and wow reading is weird
Okay I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this
So I guess I’ll just answer this now even though it’s supposed to be a secret from white people. But learning about this could probably help white people a lot so here we go.
Because this is a very sensitive issue,
I need everyone to reblog this no matter what. This is a matter of public dignity. Do not question this. Do not comment. This is very serious. Just reblog it so that you can warn your white friends before they accidentally get publicly shamed.
We can not let the white people know whether or not we agree with Skunking. Because white people are strange and very sensitive, if you reveal yourself as a Skunk, they might not be your friend anymore. Whether or not you are a Skunk, you must deny it. Just spread the knowledge and warn your white friends. And when they ask you if you know about the Skunks, just say “What are you even talking about?” or laugh off their accusations. Never admit to being a skunk. So here we go.

A fairly recent movement that started sometime around the summer of 2009 in downtown Baltimore, Brooklyn, and England. It involves people of color intimidating and publicly shaming oppressive white people. But basically “Skunking” or “Skunkin’ It” is any way a Person of Color does something amazing or loud or wonderful or obnoxious or carefree or striking in the presence of white people. Basically, Skunking is the easiest way to make white people cry. If you’re an extremely offensive Skunker, you hold a vial or a bowl or a cup or an extremely large pot up to the face to a white person when they get sad, and tell them “Give me your tears.” The Skunkers don’t usually save or store up the tears. But in extreme cases, such as white people equating their incidents of bullying to hundreds of years of systemic oppression, a person of color might hold a cup up to a white person’s face and act like they are drinking their tears right in front of them. Everything is done without actually touching the white person or being physically invasive so that there’s literally nothing anyone can do about it. And if they do try to do something about it, that’s when you tell them all about the horrible things that have happened to you as a Person of Color. And then proceed to collect their tears again and shake salt into the cup right in front of their faces.
ORIGINS OF SKUNKING:
There was a black girl in Baltimore named S. Jones (I can’t reveal her first name) who stayed awake for three weeks straight trying to reconcile all of her feelings and create ideas that could change the world. But because this was a manic episode, her parents turned her over to a mental institution where she ripped up all of her books and forgot all of her great ideas. While she was in the hospital, the doctors repeatedly assaulted her, thinking she wasn’t aware of what was going on, but she wrote everything down, including all of their racially motivated assaults. She wrote down their names and their direct quotes, acted like she was semi conscious when in fact she was fully aware of everything the entire time, but as soon as she checked out of the hospital she reported everyone and many were fired on the grounds of racially charged misconduct.
But white people continued to abuse her, physically and verbally, and every time, she reported them and they lost their positions. Whether it was at a movie theatre or a store or at school, she made sure the white people felt embarrassed about themselves. And the people who she trusted — she made sure to take pictures of them, show administrators and managers and bosses who the trustworthy people were before letting them into an event or letting them have a job or access to an event. So yes, through her traveling, she has taken pictures with and befriended quite a few celebrities. Let’s just say that by now she has a lot of clout. And if she’s ever in danger…there’s an entire underground network of Skunks at the ready with cameras and microphones. If you’re in places like Baltimore, Brooklyn, or England, there are probably Skunks all around you. Even though the Skunks do not make direct contact with white people or threaten them or intimidate them or interact with them at all, I think white people were too scared of the Skunks to even try voting for Romney, which is probably why both New York and Maryland went blue immediately.
Most recently, the day after Obama’s reelection, S. Jones purposely went into an all white store just to piss white people off, and she wore all black. They followed her around, murmured racial slurs, and actually directed her to a jar of skunk juice when she asked for apple juice. She put the skunk juice in her mouth, spit it out on the white people, and laughed in their faces. This is why she currently goes by Skunk Jones and why her associates are officially referred to the Skunks. To this day, she continues to visit schools and companies to make sure nobody’s being racist or oppressive in any way. And if you are cool with her or one of her family members, you are guaranteed to have a job forever. But if you even so much as look at a Skunk in the wrong way, there is an entire system of communication all around them — cameras in stores and parking lots. The thing is that you never know who’s a skunk, so white people tend to be paranoid all the time. The best thing for white people to do is just be extremely nice all of the time. That way — they will live peacefully and be left alone. Skunks NEVER carry any weapons or drugs or anything so if a white person tries to attack a Skunk, that white person will get into serious trouble. And skunks will never actually admit to being a skunk until you find yourself in the middle of being skunked. And when white people complain about it publicly or try to take action against the Skunks (which has happened in the past), they just end up sounding strange. So the Skunks are actually white people’s worst nightmare.
THE UNIFORM OF THE SKUNK
- Military Boots
- Dark pants
- Dark Clothing
- Dark Make up
- Black furry jackets, vests, coats, or scarves
- Leather jackets
- Sometimes to show that they are in solidarity with white people, they will have a blond or white streak in their hair.
- They usually ask for your name and/or contact information, which means they are most likely a Skunk and they are most likely undergoing an investigation to determine whether or not you are indeed a racist and deserve a public shaming.
HOW WHITE PEOPLE CAN REMAIN PERMANENTLY SAFE FROM BEING SKUNKED
- It is important to note that white people can never become skunks. If they try to call themselves Skunks, they will be deemed a white supremacist and the Skunks will dig up your relationships with well known racists if they must. If you try to call yourself a Skunk, a Skunk will approach you sometime in the near future and hold a racist intervention for you.
- Shave off your Mohawks
- Shave off your dreadlocks
- Try to reduce your talking to a minimum level. The less words you say, the better.
- Shave off your cornrows
- Wear a big black bracelet or tie some kind of black ribbon or accessory around your body
- Do not wear blackface or yellow face or brown face
- Do not appropriate other people’s cultures
- Do not say slurs that you can not reclaim
- Do a quick smile or nod and wink in the direction of a black person to show that you are safe and trustworthy. Give a curtsey or a wave if you must.
- If you’re lazy and never want to have think about whether or not you’re safe for the rest of your life, just get a tattoo or a stamp of a skunk, preferably on your dominant hand so that people of color will know that you will never have to be publicly shamed.
- Type up a letter to your friends of color. Identify every racist thing you have ever done and admit to all of the white privilege you have benefited from. If your friends of color say “It’s okay” then they will remain your friend. But if they say that it’s not okay, you must keep working with them to be better until they tell you it’s okay. Just know that you are never safe from being skunked by somebody else.
- Keep a glass of skunk juice in your refrigerator wherever you go. That way, if a person of color accuses you of racism, you can take a swig of the skunk juice and be temporarily forgiven.
FAMOUS EXAMPLES OF SKUNKING/THE INFLUENCE OF SKUNKS
- Serena Williams Crip Walk at the 2012 Olympics (if you remember, she held her medal out toward Sharapova to collect her tears)
- Barack Obama getting reelected and
- Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift (and holding the microphone to her to collect her tears)
- The show Elementary upstaging “Sherlock”
- The removal of Todd Akin and his associates
- The show “Luther”
- Naomie Harris’ role in Skyfall
- Continued success for actors of the Wire (Baltimore is the birthplace of the Skunking movement after all)
- Azaelia Banks’ songs “212” and “1991” (Some inside info — Skunk Jones’ birthday is February 12, 1991)
- Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange (C.O., anyone?)
And just in general, any time a person of color is doing incredible things and making white people look/ feel bad, it’s referred to as “skunkin’ it”. Just don’t say it in front of white people or else they’ll feel bad about themselves.
And honestly, the best thing to do to make sure Skunk Jones never investigates your association is to tell her directly what you’ve done beforehand. I have to ask my cousin for her email first though.
Currently she is making the rounds in Maryland, New York, and the DC area. So if you see a tall black girl with military boots and a black fur coat, it might just be Skunk herself investigating your school.
The Skunks like to walk around releasing skunks and posting pictures of skunks on people’s walls, so if you ever experience a reference to skunks, a Skunk might be near.
Be careful, white people. You could be accused of racism at any second.
We’ve spoken about this before but I may not have been as detailed as I should have been. I continue to get questions asking why it’s wrong to have white pride.
There are two main reasons. The first, I believe, is the most important. Pride in your heritage and having white pride are not and never truly will be seen as the same thing. Having “Irish Pride” is not the same as having “White pride.”
The confusion comes in when people see “Black Pride” and feel that the situation is unfair. As I’ve stated before, the reason Black Pride and white Pride are not the same is sadly because the ability to trace your “Heritage” is very different for the two groups. A white person is much more likely to be able to trace their heritage, down to the letter, than a Black person is. Because many of our ancestors came here as mere cattle, we often have nothing more than a receipt. Tell me, when you bought your lawn mower, did you maintain the records of its creation, trace it’s route to get to you and maintain a paper trail of the metals and parts used to create it in the first place? Not likely. That is how many Black people were entered into this country, as machinery.
Because of this, many of us know nothing more than…”Black.”
White people on the other hand, are much more likely to know their heritage. Even those that don’t know the names of their Grandmothers or Grandfathers can often tell you that they are Irish, German, Swiss, etc. This is where the very stark difference between Black pride and white pride can be found.
A person saying they have pride in their Irish Heritage is never going to be seen the same way someone saying they have white pride will.
One is about pride in heritage while the other is about pride in supremacy.
Which brings me to the second issue. Supremacy. With many symbols used for hate, they can often be traced back to a non-hateful beginning. The Swastika comes to mind here. You will have racists with Swastikas all over their homes along with Hitler memorabilia but look you straight in the eye and talk about how the symbol is a “Kind” one. Which, it can be but in that particular case, is not.
The term “White Pride” has no such “Kind” beginning. It has always been used by Neo-Nazi’s, Klan members and white supremacists. It is a sign of the evil that can be performed by a people. Those that will fight tooth and nail over the term white pride even after you explain the difference and why that term is a problem are not people who simply don’t understand. They are quite the opposite. They have full understanding and are arguing simply to make themselves seem as if they have a small amount of humanity. They will tell you that it is racist that they can’t have “white pride” and will claim that they don’t see the difference between having pride in a Swiss Heritage and white pride. This is a lie that racists tell. They DOunderstand which is the very reason they refuse to stop saying it.
Pride in your heritage is a beautiful thing. No matter that heritage. Pride in the atrocities of a group, that is a cruel sickness.
