Eureka, CA, where they were having it, is 75% white. Wouldn't you expect a march in that area to be reflective of that community and thus, majority white?

What was wrong? Did they have something like 80% white participation?

If I was a betting man, I'd wager that Linda Sarsour made a phone call.

So, they'd just rather not spread awareness of their cause AT ALL if it's just gonna be white people who wanna participate. I mean that's not even worth having a march for. Cause who cares about white people?

Remember when they talk about women's rights, and telling men they need to be more aware or be more respectful or whatever, they just mean White men. That's why this is a problem... it doesnt complete the objective of scolding or bashing white men if too many white women are present.

That's the real reason.

See this is really a race thing. Not one of them give a damn about the treatment of women. They defend Islam, they want more immigrants from places women are mistreated.

This is not about women. It's just another "whitey is bad" race March, one that's geared toward women. Nothing more.

Not too long ago this wouldve been the punchline to a joke. Now people are Actually Doing It and with straight faces.

Organizers of the Women’s March in Humboldt County, California, announced Friday that they have canceled the local Jan. 19 event because the marchers are overwhelmingly white.

In a Facebook statement, the group said it opted to nix the third annual march “after many conversations between local social-change organizations and supporters of the march,” saying they would work on how to “broaden representation in the organizing committee.”

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” said the statement. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.”

Let's ALL just take a step back from our partisan positions...take a deep ourselves...and calmly ask of this quintessential question:


It's a march FOR women...but it's too white.

What a bunch of racists.

You can't be racist against white people. Now, if the march was cancelled because there was too many black people or too many Mexican people, then that would be racist.

To your first reply yes, I was replying simplistically, attempting to address the faulty notion that extreme leftists get wealthy from socialism. And certainly there are and have been despots getting rich from exploiting leftist sympathies, when in reality they themselves are not leftist at all. Stalin being paramount.

And to the second point, i agree, the march might have been better off going ahead without the hoped for diverse attendance. My reply in that case was in response to a request to try and explain the thinking of the marchers and why they would have cancelled. Do to the overwhelming response throughout the early thread of complete condemnation and derision, my attempt was a simple reaction to what I saw as mindless ranting.

That’s a paradox. If it made sense, it wouldn’t be a leftist idea.
It’s like a white boxer taking a dive to a black boxer because they don’t want to imply superiority

Guess you never saw the Peter McNeely and Mike Tyson fight then

Fair call mate.

I agree that many leaders of communistic nations are not so altruistic and Stalin most certainly comes to mind here.

Thanks for the conversation.

Like I said before, I hope you have a great 2019.

Regardless of race the real question I want to ask is, what the hell oppression do women suffer from on the eve of 2019? In what way do women have it so bad? The vast majority of men work jobs that is labor intensive, all those STEM and corporate executive jobs are 1% of the jobs men do. The majority of men lift heavy stuff all day and risk life and limb doing it. What in the world is there left that women suffer from that men don't suffer just as much if not more?

Ahem. You can not be racist to your own ethnic group.

Ahem. Yes you can, I've seen it. Growing up I knew a mexican guy who hated mexicans. This guy believed he was irish and hated every single brown person he's ever met. I also dated a puerto rican girl and went to Florida to meet her family, and you should hear the things they said about brazilians. My old room-mate is 100% native american and he hates everything to do with his people and culture(blame his upbringing). Also look at all the white people lately hating on white people, there's no way you can tell me they're not being racist against themselves, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

The point I'm getting at is yes, you can be racist against your own ethnic group. The fact that you believe so means that you've been lucky/unfortunate to not have met those kinds of people.

Person who never met me says I am racist. Must be an authority on other people.

Well, didn't you just lump every single american white woman in a similar fashion?? Does that make you an expert on american white women??

originally posted by: tadaman
White American women are still assholes by and large. I am racist for not pretending they are not. Sure.

Any other white woman is not mentioned, but I can't NOT like white AMERICAN women without being wrong somehow and being called a racist!

You are racist and you're doing just like every other racist out there and finding ways to justify your hate. Are there women out there who are exactly as you described?? Of course there are. Are there many more women who aren't like that?? Hell yes there are, my wife is one of them.

Doesn't matter how you spin it in your mind, the fact that you lumped every american white woman in the same category is why you are racist. What if I were to say every american black woman is ghetto trash who pops out babies left and right and lives off of welfare?? That gross generalization would make me racist because even though there are some who do that, there are many who do not.

I personally think Women's marches are unnecessary and if they STILL don't have any rights. The real reason they have them is because women love attention and know how much we love to watch them pat themselves on the back for every single thing they do....but I digress. In this case it's even more ridiculous because you have one type of woman wanting more attention than the other. At the end of the day if you cancel anything for the reasons of color (however ridiculous it is)'s racist. You women should pull together, kind of like you do when a man is involved in anything, and work this out. How will we all know how great you are, or how oppressed you are, if you don't constantly remind us with a barrage of parades and all of the other crap?

In lieu of the women's march, just appreciate women today!

If you see one, just pat her on the fanny and say, "Thanks doll for all that you do! And where is that sandwich?"

This is exactly how the Jews were initially treated in Germany in the 1930s. That's why I laugh when the left calls conservatives Nazis. Their methods and behavior much more closely fits that of the Nazis than the right does. Real political movements that call for positive change are not exlusive of anyone. Political movements that are pushing a subversive agenda are always exlusive of the group they are trying to scapegoat/alienate/target. The behavior of these groups betrays their true agenda. One interesting fact, whites only compromise about 30 percent of the demographics of California, they are NOT a majority there. I wonder what an acceptable level of "whites" would be for them? My guess is none.

Bite me lord police judge of the opinion gods.

I never said all white women. I said American white women. Deal with it.

ADDED: "American" is not an ethnicity.

Just to add, though childish that I have to do so with the likes of you but, I do like SOME American white women. I am attracted to SOME enough to DATE them. I currently find them all attractive enough to have sex with them.

That said I still think most, which I could NOT DATE, are assholes. Mean and petty. Only an asshole would want them in their life. You are married huh? LoL

I don't hate them. I just don't like their relationship dynamics.

Are you an angry white American girl? Will you argue against my preference and bicker over it?

So alluring.

 every american black woman is ghetto trash who pops out babies left and right and lives off of welfare

Wow look at you. Way to go there you closet racist. Holy crap you are ruined.


That's the one word answer that this "racist" has for your opinion of him.

Well, if they aren't leftists themselves, but leftists are perfectly willing to be ruled by them and duped by them time after time, and let me be clear, I see no evidence whatsoever that this time and these leftists are any different, what do any of the rest of have to conclude from this except that true leftists are a bunch of idiotic dupes throughout all of history?

Leftists repeatedly fall for the same tricks, time after time -- this time, these people are actually going to be different and want to subject themselves to the very same hellish conditions we all want to subject ourselves to in the name of everything being fair and no one ever being allowed to be any different or any better in any way than anyone else ... ever.

Then, when this actually never happens, and you all end up oppressed and murdered wholesale right along with the rest of us who told you repeatedly this would happen all along, what then?

In NYC there are still plenty of streets, clubs, 711s that at nightfall there is a very good chance you will be attacked for just being white.

Being fair here, I understand and to a degree agree with your criticism of stereotypical leftism. To many turn to leaders to follow who tell them what they want to hear, who define their enemies for them.

You point out that leftists fall for the same tricks over and over. Yep, I see that as well. However I see this as well in the Trump phenomenon. And one of the reasons I can see this is because I saw it in the Obama phenomenon. And the Clinton phenomenon. And oh by, the Reagan phenomenon. Myself, I had no hope for Clinton though many around me did and were swallowed up by belief in him. And Obama? I admit that I had hope, somewhat. That lasted only a couple of weeks. But then at that time my position after the neo-cons hiding behind the skirts of Bush Jr. hope was all we had. We needed to break away from those guys and those who liked him simply because they knew his daddy's name. Those who are content with rule by lineage.

Conservatives did a good thing by tossing the Bush lineage out the door in 16. If only liberals had done the same. And in 2020 one of my hopes is that they, the liberals do not fall for allowing Mrs Obama to be their choice.

I got sidetracked. I wasn't even going to post in this tread recognizing it for the bait it was but one member asked for someone to explain what those leftists were thinking. I tried. I had watched this thread be just what I expected it to be, a thread for people to find the worst things they could dream up, the vilest ways they could find to describe those who they see as the enemy. Stereotyping gone pathologically mid-evil. This stereotyping holds us apart because both sides do it. This pushing the limits of just how different we believe the other side to be, this labeling with broad brushes does us no good, it only separates us more.

Because white American women are overwhelmingly fake and closet racists. They are also overt classists.

They need minority sympathy since often white women are on the receiving end of actual privilege. They benefit the most from the exploitation of minority workers.

They exploit minorities more by being users of more underpaid providers of services. Example: They hire a maid and force her to ALSO be a nanny instead of paying a person for each service.

This is why I never like to date white American women. They are horrible people and want to punish white men for their guilt. Money hungry, lazy and conflictive.

Screw white daddy issues.

If anyone needs a textbook example of racism, bookmark this post^

Has anyone brought up the whole "minorities can't oppress majorities" argument in trying to defend this obvious racism? Because if minorities can't oppress majorities, just sayin, there's no need for a women's march. Women outnumber men in this country.
