Bald people are my pet hate. Think the choice is there to wear a wig, modern wigs can be realistic and synthetic, and it should be taken. I don't go around punching them or anything but why are they doing it? Exhibitionism I figure. Trying to be noticed.

Because it's not worth the effort or cost and they don't care about your feelings would be my guess.

Rest assured "Ani" that I keep trying to "get help" to further the causes I identify and fight for, unfortunately with limited success I judge, as I find seemingly most people are fucking idiots ad nauseum. On the plus side, rest assured I have plans in the pipeline ad spectacular.

Anyway. Bump. I am "glad" some white protesters have now fallen fowl of police aggressive error. I continue to think highly of the police, having Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong dealings with them, personally speaking.


Idiots, you say.

The OP and my posts throughout this thread are truer now than they've ever been...visionary even. I'll reiterate: RACE DOES NOT MATTER!!!! 20+ "you're crazy"'s...I really don't belong here I think.

It’s nice being white and being able to make such pronouncements without it affecting your life one iota.

Maybe not, KIR, maybe not. This place definitely seems to rub you up the wrong way, usually ending with a warning/suspension/leaving announcement. If you so disagree about things people say here that it leads you to this, maybe the place is doing you no good.

Don't act like you know something about me due to the colour of my skin, FFS :roll:

You know what I think? I think "ant-racism"/BLM activism etc has a lot in common with homophobia, in that those who protest the most against racism/homosexuality are really those who are closet racists/homosexuals, "in denial" or simply insecure about their sexual orientation/feelings on race.

Most of the BLM "outspoken" crew are middle class white people, by my reading...probably living in white monoculture communities, with no close black friends or lovers historically. What do they fear? The unfamiliar, just like everybody else, so monoculture whitey isn't ENTIRELY comfortable with the "unknown others" (the mysterious blacks...and everybody bangs on about how race is so central and important) and so is a little worried that they themselves might be...a tad racist??! But no, they think, I can't be!! And I certainly mustn't be thought of as being racist! So they join BLM and scream and shout about what anti-racists they are.

The white monoculture lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Of course you do. You just disregard what doesn’t fit. Like the fact that I recognise my racial biases but if asked, would say I support BLM. I don’t wanna hear your shit any more.

Stop being ridiculous. Nothing you said in the post I responded to is me, except for the fact that I’m white. Everything else you claimed is wrong. EVERYTHING. The only ways you could still think you’re right are if you just didn’t read what I’ve said, or you want to misrepresent me. When someone gets almost everything completely wrong, that person can be reasonably considered to be talking shit. You are talking shit, and I don’t want to hear any more of it. It’s pointless arguing with you as myself who fucking knows what my life has been like. I’ve been ordered to leave this thread alone because it’s affecting me, so that’s what I’m going to do, and leave you to talk more shit until the inevitable happens.

Different people find different shit important. If they feel the need to discuss their ethnicity or gender, in the company of whoever they feel comfortable around, then they should go for it. It's not something that bothers me, and I certainly don't have any reason to judge them for it. I may not understand it, but who gives a shit what I think? Lots of people don't understand me, I certainly don't lose any sleep over it. As long as it's not harming you what difference does it make?

You were, and you didn’t even realise it. If I was well, I’d be out there protesting with BLM and saying A LOT. I’m not well, so I’m reduced to reading your shit on the Internet. Fuck’s sake. Goodnight, nurse.

I'm With Stupid wrote:These kind of things happen when a minority community is not properly integrated, accepted or otherwise given equal opportunities in mainstream society. Gay pride only exists because homophobia exists, for example. If black women didn't experience discrimination based on race and gender, they wouldn't have to come up with a separate festival to give people a space to show their talents. But yes, the better long term solution should be to fight for more representation of different groups at mainstream events. But strangely, the types of people who say, "International Women's Day? When's International Men's Day?" amongst other catchphrases don't tend to like that either.

This is the correct answer. Why did the thread not end here?
