Tubman’s Law (subset of Godwin’s Law)
By trying to equate black racial oppression–which involved millions of people being taken away from their countries and carted across the sea, where many died or got horrible diseases, and then were used as free laborers and were more mistreated than animals and then, even after being freed, being basically treated the same, with hundreds of years of oppression, hatred, and prejudice thrust onto them simply because of the color of their skin–to things that doesn’t compare at all, you automatically FAIL AT LIFE. And the arguement. Especially the arguement.
Violators will be strapped into a seat tightly and made to watch movies such as Roots, Rosewood, and Once Upon a Time…When We Were Colored. EDIT: Other punishments will consist of (via fernwithy) spending one week working very hard in the fields, with evenings spent in the relaxing occupation of getting seeds out of raw cotton. When their fingers stop bleeding, they may return to the internet and rethink their position. Unless they are tempted not to rethink it, in which case, lather, rinse, repeat as necessary. Also, some stubborn ones will be made to sit at a counter in their nice clothes and have various condiments and liquids — some of human orgin — thrown and dumped upon them.
ETA: from the comments – “another example Tubman’s Law is co-opting Civil Right speeches to support racist notions. e.g. ‘I don’t see color, I judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.’”
