The mindless hordes of what american neo-liberalism has become are out with their pitchforks. And, if you dont agree to every damn thing they say, if you dont let them walk all over you they will crucify you, and they do it in swarms. Anything that doesnt fall into their droning narcotic worldview has become heretical, and you will be branded a racist for having any thoughts of your own, often on topics that dont have anything to do with race. And dont dare suggest that the bill of rights is more important than what theyve been told,to be offended about this week. God forbid real intellectualism!

Contrarily, this faux-intellectualism fueled by social media mob mentality is maddening.

You know who is racist? Everyone that makes everything about race. That is the very definition of racism. And all ive been hearing for the last about 4 years is how I should feel guilty because of my skin color (which some say is white and others italian or spanish as people find convenient) and gender. Heres a tip for you. I dont feel guilty for who I am. i dont get special privileges because of my gender or color of skin. I do not deny racism and ethnicism are real issues. But, you all suffer from the disease of racism as much as any ignorant bigot who uses race to push political agendas or social domination.

Im sick and fed up with the mindless masses telling me what to think. I had enough of that growing up from the people you claim to be the opposite from. But all i see is more of the same. You can polish a turd up to fit your ends but its still a turd. You are part of the problem.

Furthermore, im sick of victim culture. It minimizes actual real victims. Most of these faux-liberal hordes are not victims, so stop pretending. You dont know what its like. Youre just pretentious attention whores. Stop it. Stand up and be strong for once in your in life. Life is tough for everyone. You are not a special snowflake.

Rant ended. Done. Here come the mindless masses throwing rocks in their houses of broken glass.

The 'Neo-Conservatives' aren't any better at not playing the victim or making everything about race.

Or playing the victim, considering they all think it's open season on Christianity an conservatives, even though things like conservative news are the most popular programs in the country on any given day.

I do agree with you on the white privilege and gender privilege though, starting to get real tired of that. But I just wanted to point out that both left and right are equally guilty of doing exactly what you are complaining about.

Don't do what liberals say, bet called a bigot.

Don't do what conservatives say, get branded an atheist or a fascist or a socialist.

Same difference.

I have nothing real to add here, but just wanted to say "AMEN BROTHER!" (Or sister 😉)
I am in full agreement with you, only you articulated it better than I ever could.

I think this belongs here.

Morgan Freeman Doesn't Like Black History Month

Morgan Freeman made the statement that the only way we're going to stop racism is to quit talking about it. Wise words.

They do it to stifle any rational thought or debate...which would inevitably lead many to ask the perfectly reasonable question why millions from the third world are being constantly mass immigrated into Western countries.

It's a mental illness which is privately encouraged by pro-immigrationists.

that's why i moved away from almost any social issue that i was interested in, be it rape culture, or equal rights for minorities or gamergate.
I had to step back because these groups, no matter what side they are on, have no understanding or flat out intolerance of nuisance.
It's like people forgot that you can have two separate thoughts at the same time about any issue, it MUST be black or white as if anything is ever that simple.
And of course this is true for the racism discourse as well.

Any social movement devolves into fanaticism no matter how good your initial intentions are.

You bring up the bill of rights with your hyperbole but most people who complain about being called a racist don't even know how the 1st Amendment works.

I can't count the number of times I've heard these people complain that their rights are being infringed when no government agency whatsoever is preventing them from saying anything. Most are just mad that they can't casually say stereotypical and/or offensive things about a demographic without having some sort of social consequence anymore. But those people backlashing against them are exercising THEIR first amendment right too.

Seriously, once y'all fix this idiocy, I MAY sympathize with your plight a bit more.

In the UK there were more than 1000 underage mostly white British girls raped, drugged, beaten and abused by more than 300 pakistani men, some were age 11 and 12 and that is just those known about in Rotherham, there are at least 54 other active cases being investigated in other areas. The police and social services knew about it but deliberately and admittedly ignored it because they were ''scared of being considered racist''.

Raped in a playground at 11, abused by seven men a night aged 12: Victim of Rotherham Asian sex gang scandal tells her truly horrifying story
Sarah Wilson was 11 when she was befriended by a group of older men
They showered her with gifts and made her feel special
She said this grooming was 'normal' in Rotherham
By the age of 12, she was forced to have sex with them
They threatened to harm her family if she didn't cooperate
Her mother, Maggie, was powerless to help
They felt letdown by the police and social services
Now 23, Sarah escaped the gang at 17 and is trying to move on

For five years from the age of 11, Sarah Wilson was groomed and raped by Rotherham paedophiles who showered with gifts and made her feel special in what was to become one of the biggest abuse scandals in the UK.
The now 23-year-old admits she became so 'brainwashed' by the older British Pakistani men in the South Yorkshire town she considered it normal for them to expect to have sex with her in return for all they had given her.
Writing an emotional account of her harrowing experience in new book Violated, Sarah, whose sister Laura was murdered, reveals she was plied with alcohol and cannabis by sexual predators.
They habitually abused her until she was 16, when they lost interest because she was no longer underage.

The abuse, which sent shockwaves across the nation, took place in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.
And Sarah, who is now a mother, was not alone. A report revealed that, since the 1990s, up to 1,400 young girls in the Yorkshire town had been regularly abused by sex gangs, predominantly composed of Asian men.
A National Crime Agency investigation, which could run until 2018, last month announced that it had so far identified 300 suspects

The suspects are ‘predominantly’ Asian men from the South Yorkshire town and include two who have worked for the council. Their victims are mainly white, British, underage and ‘vulnerable’ girls.
Sarah, who has waived her right to anonymity, said had no idea she was a victim of grooming.
She was raped by a 30-year-old man in a school playground at night when she was just 11, leaving her feeling ashamed and disgusted

Sarah said the police and social services did little to help her and she was only freed when she turned 17 - as she was then deemed 'too old' for the paedophiles.

She revealed: 'My mum reported me missing countless times but the police barely batted an eyelid.
'The reason? In their opinion, we'd agreed to this. We kept going back to these men, so surely they couldn't be raping us.

Girls like me - and our families - were crying out for help, but no one listened. Politicians were worried that addressing the issue of grooming by British Pakistani men would "give oxygen" to racism

'As for my social workers, they put me in a children's home, where my abusers collected me in taxis every single day. When they brought me back in the early hours of the morning, the staff even paid the fare.

'Girls like me - and our families - were crying out for help, but no one listened. Politicians were worried that addressing the issue of grooming by British Pakistani men would "give oxygen" to racism.'

Remember that old saying...sticks and stones? I guess the sticks and stones don't hurt quite as much as the other side of that equation anymore,huh?

I went to a party last Saturday, where there was one black guy, who is a work collegue and friend of the party-giver.
Eventually I went over to their table to have a general chat and we were introduced to each other.
As with everybody there that I didn't know, I asked him the same small talk question, to get a conversation going.

I asked if he was a _____ like everyone else here [because they all work together and I know most of them are doing the same job], as I had never seen him I asked if he was doing the same. He then told me that "no" he was doing a menial job in the same field.
Me, who can be very naive at times said "ok cool". It wasn't important, just saying friendly stuff.

Then when I asked him if he was from____[I meant the town where everybody else seemed to come from], he replied "No I'm a slave from Africa"...

This went on all night. He called me [apparently jokingly] a racist and that I believed he was a menial worker, when in fact he was doing the same as everyone else.

How on earth am I supposed to know? His brain was stuck in 'racism' gear, when I was in 'couldn't care less, just want to make conversation-gear'?

It was annoying that I saw a person I had never met and he saw a whitey. No, not annoying but sad. For him.

However this happens a lot. It takes two sides to sort out racism. I was fine and had a good time. He obviously wasn't.

Are you sure he wasn't just messing with you? You DID just say he called you a racist jokingly.

Or maybe alot of people are still racist and get called out for saying racist things.

After I got out of the Army but my wife was still in, there was a lady that she worked with who thought I was a racist skinhead, just because I shave my head.

I had professors actually call me racist because I disagreed with Obamacare when it was being introduced and because I said the claims that Obama was making would end up being a lie...but they're art professors, so what can you expect?

It's been implied that I'm a racist by people here on ATS for some reason or another that has nothing to do with race.

All these people are trying to do is get you to stop debating them because they're generally losing the debate concerning logic and facts so they try to shame you into stopping the discussion. It doesn't work with me, and when I call people on it, they usually slink away into the darkness and stop their nonsense.

The only way to NOT be racist, is to simply leave race out of the argument.

Simple as that really.

Seeing a victim in everyone of a subclass, whether it be a certain race, a certain gender, or a certain sexual orientation, is to immediately place them on a lower rung, is to insinuate their race, gender or orientation is a hurdle, despite the fact that race, gender, and sexual orientation are themselves not hurdles to anything.

So do you suppose we mandate it not be talked about?

Worked out so well for Cuba.

Yes, he probably was joking. But you know when a joke becomes annoying because it goes on all night? This guy was relentless, whenever I tried to steer the conversation towards something else, everything I said was met with a 'jokingly' racist answer.
I mean everything, all the time was turned around in order to make it about race. From fried sausages [lead to me telling him that I was German, which was met with "oh that's even worse..."] to me telling funny anecdotes about pets, to smoking a cigarette, to talking about work.

I am all for joking around but if it goes on for hours, relentlessly, it becomes awkward. I eventually avoided talking to him, because I didn't fancy to keep being the butt of 'whitey slave driver' innuendos.

He was a nice enough guy but even jokes can go 'too far' after a while.

The huge difference is "atheist, fascist, and socialist" aren't tags which force the destruction of people's lives. In this day and age, careers are sadly lost, wealth unethically seized, and livelihoods inexplicably destroyed once the bigot, racist, or hater tag is successfully slapped on a person.

Then maybe he's just an asshole who can't take a hint. It's not like asshole behavior is exclusive to one race or anything.
