You probably believe in the boogieman of systemic racism too.
What amazes me about the people, who cry white supremacy, is the fact that they turn a blind eye on all the anti-white remarks and sentiments expressed at leftist rallies/protests/organizations.I mean, if you're acting out of some moral principle that no man should be shamed, harmed, oppressed, repressed, discriminated against and so on, on the basis of race, why would you turn a blind eye on the clear anti-white fever that's going on in many leftist organizations?If you act out of a moral principle, then apply that consistently. If you don't apply it consistently, then I cannot help it, but to conclude the obvious: you're just a racist, who cry afoul racism when he has something to gain and turns a blind eye to racism when he has something to protect.
Hmmm. Was this a post in reference to me, kravarnik? Or, was it more of a general criticism of some hypocrisy in regards to anti-racism you've seen in others? I just found it a little odd is all, as my thread was focused specifically on white supremacist groups. I made no mention of other types of racism (for example, anti-white racism), because that's not something I had read anything about recently that had disturbed me. Of course, racism is something that is a sin that affects all humans of every racial/ethnic background (i.e., there are racists of every background). I did not think it was necessary to point that out, as I take it as a given fact. -AF
Really? Then that makes me wonder what kind of news and sources you're reading. You really aren't bothered by the claims for reparations done by leftist activists(white to black)? You really aren't bothered by the fact that quotas for particular races are in place in universities, which means white people are in some cases not qualified, or excluded, from entering a particular university, because there's a quota for other races?
Ahhh, so when I say recently, I mean literally this week (which is when the article was written)!!In terms of the issues with racial politics you've mentioned, sure, I have disagreements with some of them. However, I was focused specifically on the article in the OP and not on those issues at the time of the writing of the post. -AF
In other words: Don't assume I'm a racist because I did not mention innumerable other instances of racism that exist, prior to discussing a specific instance of disturbing racism, brother! -AF----------formerly: wlcgeek; keegclw; and GodLovesU - Hopefully, fourth time's a charm when it comes to remembering login info.!
But, that's the funny moment in the entire situation and context. You surely have read at some point the things I mentioned. Did you make a thread about them? Why is it that when you saw the white supremacy news you felt the urge to make a thread about it?I am not saying you should mention all racism, and can never focus on particular instances of it. I am just observing the fact that some people, especially those who complain about and believe in white supremacy's existence, seem to focus on just that. And they, for some unknown reason to me, never make a thread condemning BLM, for example. Or how you'd readily make a comment, or a thread, condemning Trump and some of his comments/facts of his life/policy of his government, but never about some other politicians(as if, other politicians don't have short-comings, downfalls, vices and overall bad things revealed about them).It is this highly selective approach that leaves an impression in me that one is not acting out of a moral principle(you hate and condemn all politicians that are corrupt and we have facts about them that paint them as such, because you hate sin), but out of personal bias.
I never assumed you a racist, mate. I only alluded to hypocrisy. You may not be hypocritical, indeed, but you need to realize that from an outside point of view - for I am not an American, nor do I favor Trump, - people that usually complain and make a fuss about Republicans and their racism, and about white-supremacy, often stay silent and never open their mouth against other politicians on the other spectrum.And all I am saying is: if one is really speaking from a moral place, for one truly believes particular things are wrong, they'd be equally repulsed and would equally feel the urge to do the same about all things under that category of wrong.

If you go around engaging in conversations like this, don't expect anyone of good character and will to interact with you. -AF----------formerly: wlcgeek; keegclw; and GodLovesU - Hopefully, fourth time's a charm when it comes to remembering login info.!
This is important, so pay attention "You TAKE offense, no one gives offense".Also "The taking of offense is what rests in the bosom of the stupid ones" - Ecclesiastes 7:9I'm sure you'll find this helpful.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0MrHV3T-vI
