I just want to know how far gone some people are as they bought into this "anti-white agenda".
Look guys I get it,you just want to live in a racially pure Europe and North America.


Well obviously i am above everyone else but that is down to being a) English and b) Yorkshire (far more important). As it's God's own country, that must make me "on high". Right?


On a serious note though, how do we ever get past these issues until we realise that we all pretty much all similar - share the same desires and dreams (family, friends, happyness, etc). Heck, 2'000 years ago the world was full of multiculturalism and it worked fine - have we now regressed as a species where 2'000 years later we can no longer see the benefits? That's good old Abrahamic religion for you...........


I fail to see how the mass importation of the Third World makes Europe better.

More diverse, yes, less white yes, better? Not from what I see.

Unless less whites is your idea of better.


I think there may be something to what you say.
The current narrative certainly seems to regard diversity as all things.

I guess it doesn't matter who you are, you still carry some sort of prejudice...Even the Delai Llama

I'm a white, working class, North Eastern Englishman......I know many people who say we are the most marginalised people in the UK.
Bollocks.

Am I a racist?
Most definitely not.

Do people assume I'm racist?
Some do, most don't.

Is there an anti-white racist agenda?
Don't be so frigging stupid!

Is there is an institutionalised system that prevents White people from achieving the most senior positions in our society?
Are white people actively discriminated against in the workplace, in the arts and media, in the Police force or Armed Services?
Absolutely not.

I have no time for the PC Brigade and their ridiculous agenda.
And I think things like the MOBO Awards, Black Police Association etc are an insult to non-White people.

I've witnessed at first hand the great strides forward we as a society have made in tackling race issues.
Not everything is perfect....far from it.
Numerous self-interest groups feel compelled to push their own agenda's none of which are really in the interests of ordinary, everyday people be they Black, White or whatever.

Positive discrimination is not the answer to redressing inherent racist attitudes.
And neither is the apparent self-hatred of some White people who somehow believe the sins of the father require some sort of public atonement and self-flagellation.

That's utter bollocks too.

Racism needs to be opposed wherever it rears its head regardless if its Black on White, White on Black or whatever.

The racist agenda is the institutionalization and utilization of the category "race" as an identity. The notion that we can group others —and worse, ourselves—according to the shade of an epidermis is fundamentally absurd. Even believing that humanity can be divided into races is racist or racialist in the original sense of the term. The best thing to do is to avoid the notion of race at all cost.


Wonderful reply, could not have said it better myself.

I would like to add that it was the theories of Social Darwinism that first legitimized the notion of race as identifying people as different.



Social Darwinism, term coined in the late 19th century to describe the idea that humans, like animals and plants, compete in a struggle for existence in which natural selection results in "survival of the fittest." Social Darwinists base their beliefs on theories of evolution developed by British naturalist Charles Darwin. Some social Darwinists argue that governments should not interfere with human competition by attempting to regulate the economy or cure social ills such as poverty. Instead, they advocate a laissez-faire political and economic system that favors competition and self-interest in social and business affairs. Social Darwinists typically deny that they advocate a "law of the jungle." But most propose arguments that justify imbalances of power between individuals, races, and nations because they consider some people more fit to survive than others.
autocww.colorado.edu...

Social Darwinism and Racism have two logical flaws. The idea that a social construct like race could evolve like a biological entity is absurd. That evolution occurs over a short period of time.

Still, I do feel some people hold the beliefs of racism to be true for some reason or another, and from the responses I saw while reading the rest of this thread I am sure there is more hate than I would like thot account for.

None of the non-White people I know think I'm racist, or that white people in general are racist.

I don't know anyone who lives in the "inner city", and it's quite possible they feel differently, due in part to socio-economic and cultural differences.

In my experience, people in my world don't assume anyone is racist, unless they are racist. I live, geographically and in my social and career circles in a very diverse, middle to upper-class world of blue-collar, white-collar and lab-coat workers.

I know it's out there (perceived pervasive racism), but it's extremely rare to non-existent in Dogstarland. It does, however, seem the media is trying to make it more common, unfortunately.

Don't fight each other, folks, fight the nonsense.

I would go further. The notion of "racial purity" is completely absurd. As a species, we have bred with Neanderthal and Denisovian to name just 2 - and they are seperate species. Then we have thousands and thousands of years of cross breeding through trade, war, etc.

Frankly, everyone on the planet today is a mongrel of some description, regardless of "race", colour or creed.

Mostly agree although i do think, in some institutions, Positive Discrimination can be a good thing provided it is the brightest and best rather than simply filling the numbers.

I know, right? If whites were so bad, why are these people still there?

Ok this comment gets me every time, Burgerbuddy ma friend, what "Whites" do or don't do, good or bad, others were also here, some have been on the spot of land called America before the Mayflower for Xthousands of years, others came shortly there after, from the very first time a ship dropped anchor folks of various continents began to mix and produce off springs, sometime under pleasant condition sometime not, but these people are deeply rooted to the land whether they held the reigns of power and wealth or diggings of ditches ,there ain't no going back anywhere although one may still be inspired by an ancestor's origin.



That's what I'm saying!

There are others still there and are prospering.

If whites were so bad, there wouldn't be any "others".

There wouldn't be any descent from anyone, no snowflakes or safe spaces, trigger warnings, etc.

We'd be like saudi arabia.

There is a sign at the customs and immigration counters at the Philippine airport in Manila that says, any non citizen caught at a protest against the govt will be deported, I'm sure that comes with an arrest, fine and a record, not to mention jail time.

So I'm baffled why illegals can protest in front of a govt building with no consequences, in the USA.

We need a true meritocracy whereby the 'best' reap their just rewards through their hard work and ability rather than some perceived birth right or alleged racial / social / religious superiority.

Alas I fear we are as far removed from that type of society today as we have ever been.

I would guess because the USA is NOT the Philippine's and neither should it aspire to be.

I understand people's concerns about illegal immigrants in the USA but isn't that a social issue rather than a racial issue?
Or would people's attitudes to illegals be different if they were all Caucasian?

Perhaps it's a bit of both?

Oh for heaven's sake. I'm seeing a lot of white man pain in this thread, and as a white man, it's a bit embaressing to see.


Here's the thing, everybody is a little bit racist. You. Me. The Indian. The Pakistani. The Somalian. The people who live in my village versus the people who live in that village down the road.


It's just human nature. Evolution. We favour the people who are identifiably of our tribe because that's how human society evolved and it's deeply programmed into all of us.


So we're all racist. We all operate through this filter of favoring our own kind. It's just the way the world is.

Whites might come upon little 'pockets' of people from time to time, such as those who use the words "the white demons', or 'white devils', such as Farrakhan and his tribe of freaks, or other little groups who have somehow managed to convince themselves whites are the at the root of their personal failures.

But for the most part, I don't think the assertions in the OP are true. There are racists who despise whites, true.
But it's not prevalent, at least in the U.S.

I was thinking about this the other day as I surfed YouTube in an attempt to see who was pushing what agenda but I decided it isn't nearly as much the fault of broadcasters and the media as people would like to think. If anything most cable/entertainment outlets worship the hip hop/rap phenomenon, show the in crowd in what we used to consider hip hip fashion, the heavily worshiped Kardashian family dates only blacks from the mother to the three daughters and the son who just proposed to black Cynthia or black Chandra or someone. And I can say without a doubt that the thousands of kids I work with from 11 to 18 or so in a 97 out of 100 ratio idolize black celebrities (I think black,,,Drake? Little blank?) Beyoncé Jay-Z etc. The odd few like rock music or country and aren't as interested in the current celebs but still regard them as such...I see them all as evil and scum of scum but...

I realized on YouTube news stations and networks had put out just as much crap that paints black people in a bad light than they put out stuff that white people could cry racist over too. I mean videos like "hide yo keedz hide yo hurrrrsbin cuz day rapin' errrrryone out herrrr." And videos of "I don't know he must have been hurt pretty bad but I sawed him earlier we smoked together and I showed him my t_ _ _! (Toward the camera lifting shirt) You all wanna see my t-" (cuts back to the anchor in the station. Or you have your black girls on Mary for the twelfth time trying to find their 7the child's father (but hey plenty of whites on the same show) and on the other side the "ask Americans ___" bits they do on lots of late night shows asking a bunch of white people at the mall something like, "Kim Kardashian tweeted her support of abolishing the racist bill of rights, do you agree?" in which case you see fifteen white people stop and think a second then answer, "yea im gonna agree with my girl Kim that s_ _ _ _ racist!" or, "definitely I mean, I voted against the bill of rights too but I think the illuminati still gone push the bill of rights on us illegally," Or if still unconvinced, Joyce from honey boo boo and the ten thousand other white people on TV for there mere ridiculousness. And now that I think about it more, I don't see black people painted with the ridiculous brush really at all in the numbers whites are. Its just as ridiculous as the characters you'd see in minstrel shows with blackface.

One big problem we have in these last two decades that didn't exist at a scope as huge as now is that people are very pathetic in the sense they will jump on any bandwagon that rolls by as long as its popular, supported by a celebrity, joined by a friend, or what they hear parents or the majority talking about/doing that they will too (like when you voted for president in first grade which really showed nothing more than what each kid heard was the right one and the wrong one at home then mimicked). But these bandwagon jumpers very obviously do not have the ability or don't know to or never learned how to
A. Verify something you hear as it may not be reliable B. Think for yourself and decide if an issue truly effects you or not and C. Make sure you're not a fool falling into place for someone's agenda wh isn't at all thinking of you. I can't believe how fast absolute absurdity travels this day and age unchecked. God, how many hundreds of people can rant online or on film about or tell me in person about the most ridiculous and impossible rumors and how they can be number 200 in a chain passing something along that can be debunked by simple logic or ten seconds of research. Its all behavior that gets attributed to people who have actual conspirital information to share who in turn are labeled nut cases.

Now I will give black people this whole law enforcement thing. I knew it was a problem byte never thought it could be to the magnitude rumor had it and it turns out it is that bad. But I think that whole issue lit a fire under the black white thing when if people would stop hearing people point and shout then simply repeat but instead take a real look, they would see that issue is more law enforcement vs blacks than white law enforcement vs blacks. How many times do we see black officers involved? All the time. And its because many of them act the same way that made oj Simpson the dumbest choice of people to acquit to teach LA a lesson, he felt the first thing to do when a black person gets rich is get the hell away from black people and he didn't give to black or inner city charities but to the LA PAD itself. These officers im sure often feel similar but I can't vouch. Either way all I do know is that blaming the average white person is the last thing there's evidence to support. Blame politicians with lots to gain in division, blame the super rich, blame the preachers desperate for fame inciting these riotous crowds, but the average white person stood behind you till the last year's shenanigans reared their heads.

I personally call it demonizing. It is basically liberal politics 101. When you can't win an argument with facts and proof, just say something that is a lie and never turn back. Liberals then work together to support each other's lies to make it seem even more like truth...but it is not.

To this group, you are a racist. "Racist" is their preferred weapon now-a-days but what these ignorant people don't realize is that overusing the word is causing it to lose it's potency. In the liberal mind, if you are white, male, straight, Christian, etc...you are bad. You're not and all their lying is pointless.

While they try to demonize specific individuals based upon their color, religion and sex, they fail to realize that makes them exactly what they are trying to make you. It is a pointless pursuit but these people aren't very smart.

Problem is, neither are most of the public. (eg. Hillary Clinton hasn't been burned at the stake).

When someone says "everybody is a little bit racist", it is because he is racist. It takes a lot of projection to come to such a conclusion. A statement like that is more an admittance of guilt than a statement of any facts. It's not something to be proud of.

No; not everyone is a little racist.

As a non white I will say that whites are indeed being pushed around unfairly.The word "racism" is unjustly used as a weapon to silence whites.

on another forum I witnessed a white woman getting called "racist redneck white trash" by a "person of color" because she said was worried about rapes crimes by immigrants in her country.

Folks , that is example of RACISM against whites. If you dont address this issue with reasonable Law abiding white folks, you will later end up taking on the extremists, who might be a little less than reasonable

While we all know for a fact that Trump rallies are not 100% white, they're obviously going to be a majority of white because the majority of GOP supporters are white.

But we also must take into account the demonization that you're talking about--the media and social media have been pretending like Republicans are racist vehemently since 2008's election cycle, and they are just increasing that idiotic garbage exponentially this time 'round. So, is it any wonder that minorities who support Trump aren't exactly rushing to go to these rallies and undergo the verbal assault from protestors about why they could possibly support such a "racist" and "bigot?"

You have minorities who would otherwise have gone to the rallies staying home, and that increases the "saturation" (see the irony, there?) of white people in attendance. So, yes, it appears that it's all white people (even though that's not true), but much of that probably comes from the demonization of Trump by protestors and the media(s).

Your friend may have been relatively accurate with is observation of skin color, but ignorant in his comparison.

In my younger (and religious) years I attended an (almost) all-black Southern Baptist church when living in California. It did not feel like a New Black Panther Party just because of their skin color. Now, had a group of anyone cornered them and started calling them derogatory names and putting them on the defensive, I'm sure they would have been angry about that, but it still wouldn't have felt like a NBPP rally.

I'm sorry, but your friend is ignorant.

Maybe prejudiced would have been a more accurate term?
Because everyone has prejudices.
I'm more likely to have time for someone who rides a motorcycle for instance or drives a jag.
Anyone in a Liverpool or Hereford shirt.
Someone with a tattoo I like.

These are all prejudices, and if you take my first example, it may mark me out as racist on a really shallow level because the bike scene is predominantly white. (Though there are exceptions such as the lad who first introduced me to his club).

at this point in time, all i've got to say is welcome to 'murica. the land where everyone can get it.

tired of being stereotyped because of the color of your skin? 'Murica

tired of of people judging you due to the color of your skin? 'Murica

tired of someone already laying out how and who you are without knowing you? 'Murica

now white people are finally looking at their own monster in the face (not them individuality but the system that was created for their benefit and profit and if you don't believe me, check out why American Samoans and the outlying territories are "american", pay taxes, with a higher participation rate in the armed forces but don't reap any benefits.)

The issues you are bringing up are the same ones faced by minorities in this country. welcome to flavor country. the only difference is the hate and vitrol has been refocused back against one of it's beneficiaries. it sucks, i know trust me. but they have a saying "they came for ___ and i said nothing. when they came for me, no one was left to hear me scream"

it's a djinn that's been let out of the bottle so to speak. it's terrible i know but the issue you are speaking on is one that's dodged minorities for decades in the this country and it's fallen on death ears. that issue of "classification", i know what kind of person you are due to the color of your skin.

btw, this is not targeted at anyone in particular just talkin in generalities. black folks have had to deal with this monster since the constitution was created and they were counted as 3/5s.

lol, no, being white and a trump supporter is not racist. Thinking your race/religion/type deserves better rights and opportunities and protections is.

Many people do not realize they do this (of all races) bc they hide behind their interpretation of the bible to justify their feelings. They think...~~Ive been told this all of my life and I am just being a good Christian~~

NO, you are being a bad Christian


Its very sad actually. So much hate and bigotry. I try to stay away from those types, they are very draining and miserable.

If someone described something as a KKK rally I would have asked him "wow, which KKK rally have you been to? what were the similarities"
