    Uh... How are racially motivated hate crimes not about racism? How is racial employment discrimination not about racism?

    You called me a white supremacist. Care to explain how I can be non-white and also be a white supremacist? You dug this hole; Iím just trying to throw you a rope.

    Iím so sick of this kind of sanctimonious mental flatulence. Do they really think they are going to encourage solutions based dialogue by being racist toward people with white skin color? Are white people the only racist people?

    Iím all for the elimination of racism but constantly playing the race card and being racist yourself wonít reduce racism.

    No, not you specifically. It was generally about people who fight against efforts to attack racism. But, regardless, you just said in your last post that somehow that was bigotry and something about how I was denying that you had ever been the victim of discrimination... No idea where you're getting either of those things. Can you explain?

    As for the un-fair campaign being "hypocritical" - maybe so. But I'd argue that once again, maybe that's the POINT. It's intentional because challenges people's assumptions and sensibilities about race and racism. Don't like how white people are being characterized in this campaign? Then maybe it's because you haven't taken the time to put yourself in the shoes of a racial minority and experienced the generalizations, the discrimination, and stereotyping that they face in society all too frequently.

    There's all too many folks that think "anti-racism" simply means ignoring racial distinctions, sweeping them under the rug, and pretending they don't exist and not talking about racism as if we're already a colorblind society. Most of you know that as an adherent of critical race theory I pretty much reject that approach.
    On the other hand, that is some sick racist crap. To assume that anyone, indeed, everyone, who is white is somehow privileged is just plain racist, and for you not to recognize this means that you, StillBallin, and anyone else on this forum who does not categorically reject this utterly idiotic ad, are a racist.
    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    Its humor dude.

    1. Its irony at its finest since this campaign is about problems white people face, therefore it is an actual white people problem
    2. There is a certain humorous cultural implication and coloquialism (not that its real, but its fun to poke fun at these sorts of cultural silly things)
    3. Its pointing out that this supposed problem mentioned in the OP is not a big enough problem to care about. So its pointing out people's silly whining.
    4. Its just a funny website (and yes I am white as well, but I can laugh at myself even though its an obvious stereotype)

    I hate having to explain jokes.

    Try this one.

    It doesn't matter that you know about other people's clubs or groups.

    There's no law that can make me socialize with people that I don't want to.

    Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot", a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance or animosity toward members of a group. Bigotry may be based on real or perceived characteristics, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, nationality, region, language, religious or spiritual belief, personal habits, political alignment, age, economic status or disability. Bigotry is sometimes developed into an ideology or world view. (LINK)

    You might want to review your comments and the above definition to understand why it is bigotry.
