anti-racist = anti-white is a nice logic loop.
Racists assume everyone of their race is also racist. As a white racist against white people, I find even in my weird circumstances that this is universally true.
It must be really hard being a white person.
O Lordy, the trials I suffered as a white male going through higher education. Sure it may have seemed like I breezed through with full scholarships, but really the whole time I knew that my life had been made harder by colleges giving ignorant and lazy students positions in even better schools that I would have otherwise gotten into.
At the time I thought these were the trust-fund kids who bought their way in, but now I realize it was the minorities, possibly excluding Asians. Thanks Gmork!
how much farther can your foot fit up your own mouth?
ahaha gmork kill yourself
I guess racists don't score much with good looking women.

"Think about it."
Jesus Christ after watching these idiots I'm glad to hear there's an "ongoing program of genocide against the white race".
I just noticed that the same blond chick later says "...then I'm called the R word".
THE R WORD!?!
God fucking damn.

So much stupid here that I don't know where to start. So I'll just say this was a nice find and leave it at that.
You girls are absolutely right. You should all move to the Congo.

In the 21st century, every racist is obsessed with "equality",
and so is every misogynist. This reminds me of discussions we've had in here about how using rape threats as an online rhetorical device isn't sexist if it used against men as well as women. Context and history mean nothing.
People who are not white can be racist. There's an annoying attitude that you see online of using "white" as a way of dismissing something. After Amanda Todd's suicide, when her video went viral , and debate about bullying reached the Canadian parliament, people who I believe were threatened by attention on the issue wanted to dismiss the phenomenon as "sympathy for the white girl". This was odd, because Amanda Todd was half-Asian. Nine times out of ten, when a POETV submitter uses the "white people" tag, I find it offensive.
But it's not "WHITE GENOCIDE".
The use of 'white people' tag is usually funny. Sometimes its used in a strange, unfunny way that betrays some weird prejudice in a poster, but usually it is fine.
What _is_ strange about this place is the taboo about joking about _other_ ethnicities, which is where I get disappointed with the userbase. Once you open the door to making jokes about groups of people you aren't allowed to be brittle. I'm not sure where this comes from on poetv: ordinary white guilt, genuine racism? who knows?
More to your point: attitudes, observations and jokes about ethnicities are themselves okay, I think. People get offended when the attitudes match attitudes held by people who have in the past and currently persecute, abuse and marginalize groups of people through legislation or force. Europeans, like any colonial effort did alot of that so white people, any white person is held responsible for those actions: sometimes rightly and sometimes not.
Who is the victim there? How bad is the crime? Usually its just annoying but pretending it doesn't exist is lame. Your Amanda Todd example is perfect.
It's ok to make fun of white people because they don't exist.
Sure, "white people" is a funny label that can apply to different social phenomena like the dorky, spoiled, privileged upper-middle class who live in an oblivious consumer fantasy or the poor, trailer-park dwelling denizens of areas plagued by ignorance and crystal meth, but seriously, what the fuck is a "white person"?
Presumably, it refers to someone who's skin is light, but then at what point of the color spectrum does that person stop being white?
As far as a culture, there is no such thing as white culture.
Go to Europe, take an Irishman and a German guy: they have fuck all to do with each other. As shown in that mockumentary currently on the front page, even white people living in neighboring valleys don't feel part of a larger culture or ethnicity, they are all separate little groups.
In America there is this notion of "being white" because a bunch of Europeans from different countries came over and got to own Africans like cattle. White people exist only as a juxtaposition of taking the black man and other late-coming immigrants and converting them into "the other".
Fuck white people, they don't exist and when they think they do it's because they are in some mind-prison of some sort.
You should talk to your therapist about this.
So when those black women lynched that white transvestite in McDonalds screaming 'you fucking white bitch', were they in on your post-modern joke or is it more of a 'great minds think alike' thing?
The awesome part about being white is that a "white people" tag can't hurt my feelings. That's white privilege, baby.
The perception of these differences exists, hence racism, but how was this Transvestite part of a "White Culture", other than being identifiably not African-American?
John Holmes Motherfucker
The white people tag is offensive exactly because it's so reductively stupid, and it doesn't mean anything. If you're saying that people who use it don't think it means anything, well, I'm not convinced. "It's funny, because it's not true"?
But I should have specified that it's only mildly offensive, because historical context does matter. Yes, of course, making fun of minority groups is worse.
Are you saying that "white" is a concept that is only used by Americans? It sort of looks like you are. I'm pretty sure that can't be right.
The idiots in this video fool themselves into thinking there is such a thing as a "white race" that they belong to, that somehow all gets along and holds hands and takes long walks on the beach if only were it not for the evil "darkies" trying to destroy the system from within.
In Europe, people don't identify themselves as white, they identify themselves as part of their own different groups that are different from each other (the Flemish, the Germans, the Brits, the Irish, the Italians, and often by sub-groups within those groups). Only once the black man (or other despised ethnicity) comes into the picture will the racists start saying "OH WELL BUT WE ARE WHITE AND HE'S BLACK (or Arab or Jew or whatever)". All of a sudden being white is some kind of community, but it's a racist concept that starts to exist only in the presence of something perceived as "other".
This of course occurs in Europe and in South Africa and elsewhere, but people don't give a shit about being white until some other ethnicity they despise comes into the picture. Thus me not caring if it hurts "white" people's feelings.
Try this thought experiment:
Picture a large number of white families from France moving into the same neighborhood of these self proclaimed members of the "white race".
I have a feeling they would feel only marginally less pissed off than if it were a large number of black families.
So much for "the white race" being under threat. Their use of the "white race" is just a code-word for "bigoted bible belt morons".
So, because racial inequality existed in the past and to a lesser extent exists today it is okay to make fun or or abuse people with 'white skin' because they have 'white skin' because you aren't actually attacking the person but an abstract cultural strawman you claim doesn't exist?
So when those 8 people attacked the three women (who were charged with assault) in Long Beach screaming 'fuck white people' and 'fucking white bitches' they weren't actually attacking the women themselves but the racial construct that doesnt actually exist?
Joking about race is funny, but being a cunt to someone because they have a certain skin color makes you an asshole no matter what kind of elaborate semiotic gynamstic routine you do before you engage in being an asshole. Thanks for the glimpse into the mind of an asshole, though.
White People (do this) but Black People (do this). Am I right?
Aw geez, this thread feels like my freshman year of college again, and not in an entirely good way.
The "white people" tag is, I would assume, often added by people who are themselves white but nonetheless don't see themselves as party to the activities in the video in question. So it's not about their actual true beliefs about white people; they're just noting that the video tracks with stereotypes about whites. Same with the "black people" tag.
"White people" is primarily an American concept, where the "default" is a light-skinned person who speaks American English without a recognizably foreign accent. A white Frenchman in the US would probably be noted as a "Frenchman" even though his skin is the same color as, say, mine because his French accent would stand out as a noteworthy characteristic. I could draw Venn diagrams and shit.
It's good to think about this stuff and police one's self for casual bigotry, but bear in mind this is also a place where a certain degree of juvenile expression is encouraged, and mostly people are just fucking around. I don't generally see anything here that looks like sincere bigotry, not even the occasional troll who is trying really hard to be noticed.

Don't miss the description box on the YouTube page, by the way.

I also love how ignorant racists who understand fuck all about anything keep referring to "the Asians", as if there were such a thing as an "Asian Culture".
Oh yeah, it had been a few hours since I wasn't reminded by some middle-lower class fucktard with delusions of persecution who constantly acts and votes against their own best interests that racism no longer exists in this country because black people aren't openly lynched and Obama is President.

Cat with SS highlights in it's eyes at the end...they almost made it through a whole video without giving a nod to nazi crap
The white race will be genocided by genetically engineered pokemon from the orient.
Thank but no thanks. I live in Mississippi and have this kind of ignorance on tap daily. Five for the evil though.

Can white people just get to the extinction part thanks
Girl, watchu workin thru?
I can honestly say I never heard the phrase "Anti-Racist" until I heard the phrase, "Anti-Racist means Anti-White."
Just FYI, this is an astro-turf meme pushing campaign. A few neo-nazis got together and tried to come up with a way of packaging their 'least offensive' beliefs into a series of trite catch phrases. Then they swarm around the internet as a coordinated group, spamming their 'mantra' in areas where they think it'll get traction. It's hard to argue with them, as they'll just copy-paste the same thing to whatever you say, but if you get creative you can get them to break goose-step and reveal their true colors.
This is their main dude/site
It's good that at least the white pride movement can't wrangle pretty girls. if they weren't all vaguely homely I'd be sad, but they totally are.
Maybe if they were prettier people would lay off them with the anti-racism.
