Yo, is this racist?

Why yes it is.  (Regular readers may know this is one of my favorite responses when white people ask me this question.)

“Yo, is this racist?” is the name of Raymond Ti’s tumblr.  Interestingly, Ti says that 99 percent of his readers assume he is black.  We’ve found the same over here.

Ti’s tumblr can be found here.  Colorlines article here.

  1. i for one assumed he was black because of his use of words like wack, yo and other vocabulary that is in my mind stereotypically black. Didn’t realize how racist this was until I realized he wasn’t black
