About

You Did A Racism. You Did An Imperialism refers to a copypasta popular on Twitter spawned by a woman who scolded author Barbara Ehrenreich for a joke made in poor taste about cleanliness icon Marie Kondo. After Ehrenreich tried to say her joke was a failed subtle attempt at humor, user @TheVelvetDays posted, "You did a racism. You did an imperialism. You did a nationalism. You did a xenophobia. You did a white fragility. You did a weak apology. You did no growth. This makes it abundantly clear you don't understand the intersectional nature of the multiplicity of your offenses." The copypasta has been regularly posted on Twitter since in mockery of aggressive and cringeworthy scolding.

Origin

On February 4th, 2019, author Barbara Ehrenreich posted a since-deleted tweet that read, "I will be convinced that America is not in decline only when our de-cluttering guru Marie Kondo learns to speak English."[1] She later attempted to brush off the backlash she received by claiming it was a failed subtle attempt at humor. In response, user @TheVelvetDays posted, "You did a racism. You did an imperialism. You did a nationalism. You did a xenophobia. You did a white fragility. You did a weak apology. You did no growth. This makes it abundantly clear you don't understand the intersectional nature of the multiplicity of your offenses" (shown below). The tweet has since been deleted.

E New York Times Opinion @nytopinion 路 Dec 29, 2019 Bret Stephens' latest column (nyti.ms/39kgVpU), which argues that culture and history drive Jewish achievements, has been edited to remove a reference to a paper widely disputed as advancing a racist hypothesis. We've added the following editors' note to the column. Editors鈥 Note: An earlier version of this Bret Stephens column quoted statistics from a 2005 paper that advanced a genetic hypothesis for the basis of intelligence among Ashkenazi Jews. After publication Mr. Stephens and his editors learned that one of the paper's authors, who died in 2016, promoted racist views. Mr. Stephens was not endorsing the study or its authors' views, but it was a mistake to cite it uncritically. The effect was to leave an impression with many readers that Mr. Stephens was arguing that Jews are genetically superior. That was not his intent. He went on instead to argue that culture and history are crucial factors in Jewish achievements and that, as he put it, 鈥淎t its best, the West can honor the principle of racial, religious and ethnic pluralism not as a grudging accommodation to strangers but as an affirmation of its own diverse identity. In that sense, what makes Jews special is that they aren't. They are representational." We have removed reference to the study from the column. james @Voreoboros_ HOW MANY TIMES I GOTTA TELL YA MA. YOU DID A RACISM, YOU DID A WHITE FRAGILITY, YOU DID A NO GROWTH. WHATSA MATTA WITH YOU? 2:21 AM 路 Oct 13, 2020 路 Twitter for Android
