Stuff White People Say

Censorship as White Empowerment

Filed under: Uncategorized — jwbe @ 9:31 pm

Free speech, the right to express ones opinion in public as well as the right to listen or to read different opinions is a basic democratic and human right.

Reading different opinions and points of view are necessary to be able to develop critical thinking skills as well as comprehending different points of view. Reading different opinions is also necessary to learn that oneself is not the center of the universe.

The US is known as the country with allegedly free speech. I call this “First Amendment” the “Right to insult” because nowhere else my right of free speech is so often violated like on “liberal” or ” white anti-racist” American message boards, blogs etc. but also nowhere else Americans can offend and discriminate so freely without being moderated, as long as they are ‘on the side’ of the moderator.

‘Liberal’ white blogs etc. are the perfect example of subtle and often unnoticed discrimination, where the moderaters abuse their power to empower white supremacy and silence “counter-racism”.
And this what happens on the internet only reflects what happens in real life. Moderators who are also teachers or academics in real life do have the power to silence those who do not necessarily always agree. This is the way how white supremacy is kept alive, mostly only those in line with white supremacy will be successful.

Those who preach “tolerance” and “human rights” are very often quite quick to violate the rights of others when it is about protecting their image they are trying to keep up in a society where image is more important than true being and success does not come with honesty.
And while those who preach about justice accept and reinforce discrimination by their way of moderating – letting racist, biased or direct attacks of certain readers who are ‘on their side’ go public – the counter voices are silenced by them, means, are not published.

Some or many of these people are teachers, educators or in other social occupations and voluntary work. Discriminating against people with a different opinion. And the problem is that many people don’t seem to be able to realize this subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) abuse of power.
And on internet, nobody can stop them.
Their way of moderating will sooner or later lead to a uniform blog with yeah-sayers or “it’s great what you write” with readers only exposed to one point of view, because everybody else will finally stop posting on such a blog, where there is a great chance of being censored.
It’s just annoying that people can distort what one writes but then you don’t have a chance to answer because your posts won’t be published.
They will only be published if you *kiss the moderators ass* by only writing what s/he wants to read or where s/he can play educator (can feel superior).
Translate this into real life and you know how power can be abused to impose a certain way of thinking and to try to force people to adapt to a certain concept and in the worst case finally giving up ones own identity.

Lies have to be protected and fractured lives of people without backbone have to use censorship as poor tool to hide their weakness.
Therefore being censored on white anti-racist messageboards etc. can be a compliment, nothing tells somebody more honestly that one just hit the nail and that the truth hurts deeply. Nonetheless it’s not only annoying but highly disturbing that those allegedly fighting for justice are those most afraid of free speech and unwilling to respect human rights.
Of course they refuse to listen, they refuse to learn, and some earn money with their arrogance and white power and the double-speek of whiteness. They come in the camouflage of ‘friend’…

For example, over at Racismreview somebody wrote to me:

I don’t consider JWBE’s observations some kind of gospel truth. In the social sciences, truth is dependent on whose and which perspective you’re speaking from. It’s not an exact science like physics or a math equation.
For example, her belief that people choose to be benevolent or evil at a “very early age”. Really? It’s that simple huh? So, life experiences don’t count? By 5 years old, we either side with Satan or the Archangel Gabriel? Well, that’s an interesting philosophy.
Next, people should do “What’s Right” despite what other people think of them. Sounds simple, but then again what constitutes “right” in the minds of some people does not constitute “right” in the minds of others.
I find JWBE so judgmental of humanity in general it borders on psychosis. She has such vitreolic hatred for so many people, I don’t believe this is healthy. Why should I take this brutish aggression seriously?
The point is JW is brutal, but her clarity of vision is up for debate. She brutally believes the white race is inherently flawed, some kind of demons sent to Earth to be “dismantled”. You don’t think that sounds a little neurotic?
What I hear is, “No von is goot enuf to be me! This blog tells the tale! Whites pretending to understand! They understand nothing, NOTHING!” Sorry, but I don’t find this RATIONAL. She speaks about the concept of “othering”. The only “other” person JWBE seems to truly listen to, or have any love for is JWBE. She appears to be blinded by her own fury. People sense a little over-the-edge psychosis here, and maybe that’s why her comments are shaded.
All human beings are a mixture of good and some “bad guy” stuff thrown in. None of us are unflawed folks. If we can make more good connections on this planet than negative ones, that’s about the best we can do.

It’s “great” to know, that those on Racismreview agree with that, because I have no chance to get a comment through. It’s telling that I am not allowed to respond to the distorted nonsense by this person.

  1. and funny how that works, I seem to be banned over there…
    Tragic, these people want to be allies… of what cause?
    With friends like this you don’t need enemies and it’s perfectly in line with Ani’s ‘Hypocrisy as a Way of Life.’

  2. My goodness jwbe, haha. Wow, though seriously not surprised, as I was censored on there several times too rofl(some I do understand as some comments/responses to some of the commentors who were pretty f*cking rude and/or mean to either myself or someone else on there, were pretty raw)…. And I was censored at another “antiracist” blogsite too when I was critical of how they were framing an African American child who had left some grafitti on a train–I was troubled that they were framing this child as having/being the problem and not society, etc.. Naaaw, I wouldn’t take it personal.

    I’m not a blogger and this stuff is all relatively new to me. What I have found is that antiracists (?) blogs take a lot of energy in terms of countering the hate that comes through, and it comes through in many ways and under many different guises. A couple of my friends won’t go on white antiracist sites at all because they say “anti-hate” sites would not let any hate comments go through at all. In other words, they perceive them as hate sites contrary to how the sites advertise themselves, etc. Well, and they just simply don’t trust whites most generally…gee, I wonder why?? :S But I think there’s much confusion on what is considered “antiracist”…which only serves to create barriers and divisions between people who claim to support the same cause…then when there are people covering their ears, turning their eyes, silencing those they disagree with, etc., it sort of defeats the purpose of trying to form coalitions, etc., be it online, or in real life. I don’t know.

    May I ask what if you would be willing to share the response you had tried to put through that was in response to the direct quote above? Sheesh!

    And I think the title of the main post is important–an think about how much this goes on beyond the Internet!! This needs to be studied more and I don’t think, or know, if anybody has ever written on it??

  3. below the response and all of what I try to post there now seems to go directly into their spam file and never shows up, regardless how civil or so my wording is.
    This kind of cyber-racism, liberal white anti-racists using censorship for keeping white supremacy intact is defintely a form of racism academics won’t study or talk about.

    now here the never published comment
    “so again an attempt, the very shortend version of this what was censored here and I am sure that Maranda is person enough to endure the truth without the help of her mom, lol

    >For example, her belief that people choose to be benevolent or evil at a “very early age”.

    that’s your words, I wrote, ‘make the choice to be ‘white’ or to be human.’

    And this is now newly added:
    Maranda it’s interesting that you, on an antiracist blog which is about whiteness and the WHITE racial frame fabricate ‘evil’ and ‘benevolent’ and think me talking about whiteness is brutish aggressivness…
    It’s always nice to know that I am so good in striking a nerve;-)

    And moderators, when you think it’s ok to censor MY response to this by Maranda: She has such vitreolic hatred for so many people, I don’t believe this is healthy. Why should I take this brutish aggression seriously?
    The point is JW is brutal, but her clarity of vision is up for debate. She brutally believes the white race is inherently flawed, some kind of demons sent to Earth to be “dismantled”. You don’t think that sounds a little neurotic?

    this tells alot about yourself, about what you allow should be said about whiteness.
    And don’t use “personal attacks” as an excuse to silence some but support the Maranda’s”

  4. Anybody who generalizes a single race as racist is a racist themselves. I don’t give a fuck if your black, white, brown, yellow. Stuff white people say is racist? Stuff black people say is racist, too. The people who generalize one specific group to be something are ignorant fucks who deserve to die. You act like a rights activist but who eer you are you only make new tensions between different cultures and races. People who discriminate others for no specific reason deserve to burn in hell. Like the creator of this website. Which is probably why they don’t get on anymore. Stupid people like the person who made this website would put Ghandi, Martin Luther King and God to shame.

  6. If you think moderators on liberal white blogs promote white supremacy and silence opposition to it you are completely out of touch with reality. I would be extremely interested if you could provide examples of this.

    The kind of people who produce and frequent those blogs and their counterparts in politics could only conceivably support pro-white racism by sheer accident. Generally they wage a self-hatred fueled crusade against their fellow whites with alarming zeal.
