Yeah, so we have a black president and we are supposed to kick back and light up a fattie, because now everything is cool, right?

Not so fast, my brethren and sistren.

Every once in a while some fooligan will roll to you talkin’ some trash about how you discussing your racial background in a broader social context is a “back-handed maneuver.” They may even accuse you of “playing the Race Card” because you mention that life is different for you because you are…well…different.

Next time that shit goes down, be prepared.

Break out your RACE card™. Slam it down. BOOYAKACHA! Silence them and as their brains reel because you are so fucking awesome, you can gently school them in the fine art of removing their damn foot from their pie-hole and maybe get it through their skulls that you won’t be silenced by fauxtastic bogus arguments designed to undermine your experience.

The RACE card™ also comes in handy if you need to:

  • Cut in line at banks.
  • Remind underlings that, yes, you actually ARE “The Man.”
  • Impress those with racial fetishes.
  • Levy silent accusations at the staff in fine dining establishments.
  • Have an “Oppression-Off” with other beleaguered “People Of Color”

    These are so awesome. So glad they got featured on boingboing, where people are having “triplets” over them.

    Make a poster of this photo!

    I bet you could do a hell of a “Please Mansplain To Me Some More” card set, too!

    mo, i have only just heard of you, but sweetness has a new name.

    love it.

    I saw this on boingboing!!! It’s awesome. You should partner up with Queen Latifah in that SNL commercial she did for Excedrin- Racial Tension Headaches :D

    and the term “fooligan” made my day.

    HELL YEAH!

    Saw this on Laura Antoniou’s facebook page and HAD to say hey.

    As Millie Jackson once sang, SHE HAD TO SAY IT!

    If I had a vote for IMsL, you would get mine, Sis!

    “Fooligan” should be defined henceforth as “someone dense enough to lecture one about one’s own experience.” And I love the visual of you standing in a restaurant just pointing the card at staff :-)
    I second the call for a poster of this!



  15. Duckiloo on April 26, 2010 at 7:49 AM

    Damn, that’s all kinds of awesome.

    I have to second the girl who asked for the “Mansplain To Me Some More” card set; now those I could get some massive use out of.

    Well Done.



  16. Nio on July 7, 2010 at 3:45 PM

    Bwahahahahahahaha! Ok I’m a bit late to the party but this is freakin’ hilarious.



  17. danimo on July 18, 2010 at 11:35 AM

    i automatically love you. hahaha if anyone was going to trademark the race card, i’m glad it was you, since you’re clearly as witty as you are sexy. “oppression-off” — i love it! ; }

    Recently ordered some “race cards.” It’s been two weeks and I still haven’t received them.
