It’s a fact of life that if you say certain things you get in trouble, even if there’s no good reason. Take this tweet – since deleted – from Spain’s KFC Twitter account.
Why is this wrong? Does KFC not want to attract blacks? Do blacks not like fried chicken? Would the ad be racist if it were a white player? Wouldn’t it be racist if KFC deliberately tried not to appeal to blacks?
Figuring out exactly why something is racist or not can be hard. The Biden Administration wants to ban menthol cigarettes partly because “communities of color” smoke them. Blacks who smoke menthols won’t like the ban. But —
- Is it racist to assume blacks have no self-control?
- Is it racist against whites to worry more about blacks dying from lung cancer?
I’d like to hear answers, but I don’t think there are any. A multiracial society can’t rationally discuss policies. Instead, different groups jostle for “victim” status and the power it brings. Whether something is actually “racist” isn’t the point, because “racism’s” meaning constantly changes. The word is almost always a way to attack white interests. We should ignore the word.
Moving on, this is from the Daily Caller:

This sounds like a conspiracy theory, undoubtedly from Muslim supremacists.
White people not scared of anything but equality. https://t.co/I9H0aRJuEX

Wrong. White people aren’t scared of anything except being called racist.
Author Brandon Taylor:
This week’s newsletter is on black subjective experiences, Elaine de Kooning, and trying to get my head around…double consciousness. Also fiction. https://t.co/N780DD07Oo

He argues that “the minute you acknowledge the existence of a white audience, you find yourself othering your own subjectivity,” becoming an object acted upon, rather than an actor. If that’s true, blacks are better off far away from us. Get those “tiny white people” out of your heads.
This man is not shy about his admiration for the Nation of Islam:
White people attempting to “Educate” Black people about hate without looking at their profound presence within hate itself across the planet is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

Remember, half of black Americans support Louis Farrakhan.
transracial adoption for white people especially for BIPOC in “america” is almost always about a white savior complex.

There might be something to this. Even if there isn’t, wannabe “white saviors” should know they won’t get any gratitude.
journalists rarely talk about how we find our sources. much of it is ego — you think you get good stories because *you’re* good.
it means we don’t hear about the exploitative way many demand access to poor, non white people during crises.

If you ignore “black voices,” you are racist. If you ask “poor nonwhites” their opinions, you’re exploitative.
There is no such thing as “forced diversity”. The world is LITERALLY diverse. If your staff or influencers are all cis white people, you need to reevaluate your workspaces.
Having spaces that are all white is NOT NORMAL. It’s tactically built to be exclusive & keep others out.
— Confetti (@MiladyConfetti) May 10, 2021
Of course, there is a great deal of forced diversity.
Cant mention how many companies hire Black women into racist/sexist environments and then they are quickly deemed aggressive, stereotype and damn near bullied out of the space.
Equality, equity and inclusion takes WORK and follow through
— Confetti (@MiladyConfetti) May 10, 2021
If you have to remake your company and do “WORK” to keep blacks happy, it means diversity is a chore, not a strength.
My tip for the day is, if you are a person, workplace, or institution, and your attempt at “anti-racism” primarily involves making sure white people do not feel uncomfortable, or inconvenienced in any way, you are not fixing the problem. You are making it worse.

To save non-whites, whites have to be made uncomfortable.
The Rugby Football Union has stopped using the nickname “Saxons” for one of its senior England representative teams after it was deemed inappropriate, given the sport’s drive “to reflect the diversity in society” https://t.co/zkmckq1Q26

“Diversity” means “no whites.”

She may not even be joking.
In the history of us being Black, you have to understand that…if you, a white person, show just a little hint of racism…that’s it for us. We can’t trust you anymore. It’s nearly impossible for you to apologize your way out of it.
— Malcolm P. Johnson (@admiralmpj) May 11, 2021
Just about anything can be “racist” these days, so steer clear of blacks. Also, it’s clear you should never apologize. It won’t do any good.
We’ve BEEN fighting against gang violence and calling for an end to it. The street fraternities THEMSELVES have even been coming together and uniting against it.
And there’s no such thing as black on black crime. That’s a white supremacy talking point.

It must have vanished overnight.
If you’re white please do not make jokes about race or racism unless you’re making fun of white people specifically, otherwise it’s just really weird and uncomfortable
— Rudy (@CellGaypoptosis) May 9, 2021
white people don’t experience systemic racism because we have built the system that oppresses POC. we benefit from that system still to this day. so no, reverse racism doesn’t exist. so stop trying to defend the show runners. us white people need to shut up and listen to poc rn
— nathan | cr: lightning thief (@achilleseivor) May 5, 2021
That helps explain why people are so desperate not to be white.
Still, it’s not like some blacks don’t fake being white.

I guess he learned that white privilege isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
