But over time they changed it to, what? Right MONKEY.

Default Re: Check Out This Racist Coward

[A reply to the very first post on this thread three years ago.]

I can't defend what the guy in the CBS News video did: held a plush monkey with an Obama sticker on it, then took off the sticker when he saw the camera, because he knew he was doing something wrong.

Can we agree, however, that was a rather tame form of racism, compared to King Samir Shabazz saying,
Quote:
I hate white people! All of them! Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him! ...You want freedom? You gonna have to kill some crackers! You gonna have to kill some of their babies!
King Samir Shabazz "You Want Freedom? Kill Some Crackers!" - YouTube

And unlike the guy in the CBS News video, Shabazz is no coward. He had no shame about these sentiments... he shouted them into a public address system, knowing that there was a camera on him the entire time.

CBS News had absolutely no coverage of Shabazz.

Could we please all agree to condemn all forms of racism... not just when it comes from white people?

Of course, all racism is bad and should be condemned.

But the fact of the matter is that a white man expressing racism towards black people is representative of centuries of systemic racism. The crazy guy on youtube calling people to arms to kill whitey has no system behind him. He hasn't got a government and police force made up of individuals of his own or similar demographic.

Basically what I'm saying is that as a white person, I'm far more concerned about the damage to society being done by a racist white man who is willing to disparage the President of the United States based on his race than I am about a guy with a video camera posting on youtube about killing whitey.

Well said, and ITA.

And I love when people come and join the forum, and their very first post is one like Dana Tufts'. Smells like a sockpuppet to me.
