Anyway Dutch people shut up forever about Van Halen after your shitty racism literally drove his family out of your shitty country--like so shitty they found the UNITED FUCKING STATES better racism-wise.
@ljwrites i stopped listening to anything Dutch people have to say about racism once I learned about their Blackface Holiday
@ljwrites [shitty Dutch person voice] you can't judge other countries according to American ideas of racism. it's just not a problem here. everyone is respected and no one has a problem with our Blackface Holiday. stop imposing your culture on us bro. it's a totally innocent holiday for kids and has nothing to do with a lingering legacy of slavery and imperialism in our own country
@ljwrites (since someone is totally going to take this seriously: not all dutch people are Shitty Dutch People, much as not all americans are Shitty Americans. but i can and will judge the Blackface Holiday, especially since every time i mention it a bunch of people come out of the woodwork to learn me a thing about how there's nothing wrong with it)
@alpine_thistle you sure showed us ignorant Americans a thing or two, Shitty Dutch Person!
(+20,000 shitty points if they imply or outright state that U.S. Black people are colonizers imposing their own cultural standards. Shitty Korean people do this all the time and I want to personally fight them.)
@ljwrites any time i see europeans getting Righteous about the state of racism in the US, I turn into Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. "Oh I see, you think this has nothing to do with you"
