Phuyenk - Though I respect the most basic idea of being cibrollond, it’s also extremely misleading.The reason why is because it contains one key word which no one seems to notice. The word is blind. It means you can’t see. I’d rather see everything and make decisions based on what I can see and experience. Being cibrollond is what causes everyone to tiptoe around the discussion of racism but no one, especially whites, actually learn the fundamentals of racism and how it affects certain demographics differently.Some examples:A white woman/man I was talking to had no idea why it was wrong to refer to blacks as creatures even though she used it in a positive phrase in a poem such as they are wonderful creatures. Well, it’s the same reason why you don’t refer to Asians and Latinos with the following descriptions: horde, invasion, tide, flood, etc.The answers are quite easy. Blacks have been viewed as being animals and beasts since slavery and Asians/Latinos are constantly referred to the groups that breed on an enormous scale and flood the indigenous people out from their own lands.Being cibrollond hinders one’s ability to gauge what’s racist and what’s not.
