How the fuck is obese anti black? This shit is like actually driving me insane at this point.

[–]sparkybooman2727 points28 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, it always makes me feel weird when people start claiming stuff like that. It seems more racist to say ‘obesity is associated with blackness’ then what ever the hell she is intending to respond to.

[–]Gretshus15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy

I recall that a person said that black people are disproportionately obese in America, which therefore makes obesity racist. Here's a NYT article (https://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/06/opinion/sunday/why-black-women-are-fat.html) and Grio (https://thegrio.com/2010/06/21/how-obesity-has-become-a-part-of-black-culture/). The latter more of explains why the black population is disproportionately obese.

Like the fat black woman that sued McDonald's for "Making" her fat

I feel like my brain is going to audibly start playing They're Coming to Take Me Away by Napoleon XIV.

[–]Merlinfrost1 point2 points  (5 children) | Copy

Actually it’s a really really big thingy. So since African Americans make up a large portion of the lower income Americans they have a higher chance of eating at fast food restaurants, this in turn leads to higher rates of obesity, that in turn leads it to being an anti-black slur. Now I don’t necessary agree with it, but that is the facts.

[–]OhNoBearIsDriving1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

Or you know, lack of self control. You can definitely keep an healthy weight eating fast food every meal, nobody forced you to stuff yourself with entire bucket of fried chicken with 12 biscuits every time.

[–]Merlinfrost0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

Uh no, eating McDonald’s every day will most definitely make you fatter.

[–]OhNoBearIsDriving0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Are you the guy that watched supersize me and didn't realize the guy forced himself to eat way over his calorie requirements? Heard of moderation? You don't have to order extra large combo with sweet tea/soda every meal, mcd has smaller portion burgers.

[–]Merlinfrost0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Dude eating McDonald’s daily is still awful for you if you eat it daily.

[–]AfricanAgent471 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm black and this is also driving me insane 😂😂

[–]TankertBoi29 points30 points  (4 children) | Copy

I’m a bit porky myself, and if someone does call me fat, I either laugh it off or insult them back. It’s definitely not a slur.

[–]Drayelya17 points18 points  (2 children) | Copy

People are too thin skinned these days. Quick to insult, quicker to cry when their own medicine gets dumped back in their mouth. I’ll bet her post was prompted after she said something and the person threw it right back.

Edit: spelling

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thin skinned eh? Ironic.

[–]TankertBoi1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yes, yes. Exactly. People need to learn when to defend themselves and when to just take an insult.

[–]1Badshot3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

I don't mean to quibble with you, sir, but BlackFatQueer does not have an issue with the word "fat". Specifically, she hates the term "obese" even though that is a medical term used to describe a particular level of fatness, and not really an insult.

So show BlackFatQueer some goddamned respect and keep on using "fat"!

(Oddly, the three individual words in BlackFatQueer's chosen nom de guere are each offensive to some people.)

[–]Accidental_Edge13 points14 points  (2 children) | Copy

I'm always curious how it's racist when I see this

[–]Drayelya4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

It’s turning into a movie trope at this point...

[–]RPDunkleBomb5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's racist to be white bro have you tried not being white? #privilege

[–]redmaster_2827311 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy

More like r slash fat logic

[–]maudeib10 points11 points  (1 child) | Copy

I think they prefer the term "gravitationally challenged". Or "extra girth equipped" how about "lean muscle deprived"??

[–]RegumRegis2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

"fast food addicted"

[–]DepravedWalnut9 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy

Anti black? Fuck off

[–]Setari7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy

Okay, I'll use "faaaaaaaaaaat" while gesturing with my arms about how obese you are.

[–]DrezZone0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Flap those wings

[–]laptopdragon5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

what about using "dependapotomus"?

[–]Drayelya0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The less dependas I meet the better. Just being around one was enough to make a walk through a mine field a happy time.

[–]MrBigBomb3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wow I would just call her retarded.

[–]bearserkr2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

but.. her user is blackfatqueer

[–]RichardJLyon2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

To expand Ms/Mx. Blackfatqueer's last deduction into its fully resplendent modus ponens form:

  1. If all obese people are black, then labelling people obese is anti-black
  2. All obese people are black
  3. Therefore labelling people obese is anti-black

She's not merely claiming that all black people are obese. She's claiming that only black people are obese.

Interestingly in the context of feminists' confected grievances about pay 'gaps', verbal reasoning skills are a significant pay differentiator in the job market. It looks like the postmodern reasoning methods she was taught in her gender studies class are something of a liability in that respect.

I presume in these sensitive times I need an obligatory disclaimer to the effect that I don't think that only black people are obese, so here it is.

We in here dropping O bombs?!?!!?

[–]BeckyLynchIsBetter2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]Runicyeets3 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy

Anti black?

[–]MegaMindxXx[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

The Dems have the blacks convinced anything is anti bkack

[–]Runicyeets2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Or she's saying its anti black because she thinks all blacks are fat

[–]Alphanumeric881 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

What does antiblack have anything to do with being fat?

[–]MegaMindxXx[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Because she says she is black. It's the race and victim card and fat shaming all wrapped together.

[–]silcona1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Ah, yes. Cus all black people are obese apparently

[–]RichardJLyon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

No. She's actually claiming that all obese people are black.

[–]ryanhew21 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Bruh isn’t saying it’s offensive to black to people saying that black people are fat. So is that racist in its self

[–]bruh__bot-2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]Emaniacal1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]InformalCriticism1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Better inform the doctors.

[–]SunnyGay731 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

i thought fat was a slur too? what are we supposed to call overweight people other than overweight

[–]RubbleRodent1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

You heard her we now need to use terms such as fat cunt, whale, cow, oaf, and tub of lard choose your favorite

[–]RubbleRodent1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

“Anti black” implying that black people are the majority of obese people? That’s pretty racist smh

[–]techtesh1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy
