in Soviet Russia, nickelback still sucks
Heyoo! I LOVE your,blog but that post about social justice is a bit flawed. When people joke,about white /straight /male people its not meant to be mean, its just venting. Racism against white people, heterophobia and misandry aren't really real at all!
I think racism against white people, heterophobia and misandery are very real. They’re just relatively uncommon. For example, I think it is possible -and extremely wrong- to be racist towards any race. If our ultimate goal is equality, then hate must be stopped from both directions. Did you know, for example, there are some places in Jamaica where the black population will shoot and kill white people simply because they are white. You cannot tell me that’s not racist. I’m also pretty sure they’re not joking or venting.
If some white lower-class Americans beat the shit out of Chinese families because they took away their jobs (see “outsourcing”), it’s venting so it’s okay, right?
If all those comments were meant to be comedy, it’s in the wrong spirit. Comedy doesn’t discriminate; any topic can be used for it, and I mean it. There’s too much one-directional perspective in those comments, which corrupts the comedic virtue. If you tolerate those comments as comedy, you also have to allow someone at a KKK meeting to make fun of black people for 30 minutes.
If those words were not comedic, then, well, you saw my first paragraph.
