Being Anti-White means that you are Racist.

Being Anti-Racist means that you are not Racist.

So, therefore, Being Anti-Racist cannot possibly mean being Anti-White in any imaginable way.

Thank You

Actually the term would be anti-racism.
Racist would be more on a individual level.
Let me know what grade in elementary school you stopped at and i'll try to talk to that level so i don't embarrass you.

This stupid argument did make me more radical. Before I was trying to maintain my "whiteness", and be against racism, but dude just keep repeating over and over again, how being anti-racist meant that I was anti-white... and no matter how logical I was, he just kept repeating his stupid conclusions...

Now, I am a race traitor iconoclaster. I want the concept of "white" race to be destroyed. It doesn't make sense. If we r just being racist, just colors, then there's white black and brown... but brown doesn't describe the same group of folks, and neither does "white"... in fact, I heard that there's more divisions amongst "whites" than any other group. Like Asians. Are they white ? Their skin color says yes, but other features, their squinty eyes, and their culture, says otherwise... "white" typically means European-American... since in Europe, there's no white or black... it's nationalism. You're a Frenchman, an Englishman, or a Spaniard. But not so much here. I'd like to have a multicultural society. One where we get to identify ourselves, and since we are from many nations, and since that's the beauty of America, to take the best the world has to offer, and to make it ours, this is a good idea. I see a world of rainbows. We're all different anyways, and to pretend like we're all the same is a lie. Being unique and weird is the norm. It's weird to be a "normal" conformist. So yes, this stupid conversation, changed my perspective. I do not advocate murder for anybody. When I say "end the white race", or down w/ whitey, or whatever, it's the concept of being "white" that I'm talking about. The only folks who take being "white" to have any meaning, are the gigantic racists. Folks may accept it, but it's not a source of pride for them, and how can it? You didn't accomplish your skin color. You had no control over it. That's stupid. PLUS, it's not accurate. I have NEVER seen a white person, or a black person. I've seen albinos, and I've seen light skinned and dark skinned folks, but pitch black, or snow white...? Nope, those folks don't exist, and would be viewed as aberrations of what we now call "white" and "black". Also, just like gender, let's not forget, race is a social construction. It's what we, as a society, make of it.

The head of the Black Studies at UofL said that everything in America is Black/White. Im totally sure about this, but it seems like it could be true. WEB DuBois said the color line was the biggest obstacle America was faced with in 1900. There's still segregation, in housing, today, as well as institutional racism... but it's weird how we cling onto "Black/White", when really, it's not accurate for either one. I'm more of a Peachish color... I've heard Pink, and Yellow before... but my manhood can't accept that... and really Peach isn't right either. For me. But other "whites" have even different hues than that... Some of my cousins have brown skin... and they're the biggest white supremacists in the world! Waving Confederate flag, saying N all the time, etc. I once heard "Mahogany" for a black person's color, and Caramel, which are elegant terms for their skin color, and more accurate. Language should be used for accuracy, and we all are part of one large human family, and we are all souls trapped inside bodies. Since we all bleed red, and since it's all pink on the inside, we should allow our commonalities transcend all differences, to love everybody equally. We're all different, so that should be accepted, and the norm. When I talk about my Prussian, Bavarian, Bohemian, Austrian, and African roots, I feel like a fuller person, like I'm actually saying something. When I talk about being "white", it's like I delete all my roots, and just accept this fake social construction, which seems like the only point of it is, white privilege.

the only reason you don't identify with being white is to do so negates your rant against the white race. Being against racism does not make you racist. Saying you are against racism or having problems with actions by other races then calling others out of their names and applying the race card in reverse makes you a racist.

Yeah, it's what I believe. I hate racists. Just to hate somebody b/c of their skin color makes as much sense as somebody who loves themself for it.

Q: Why do you love urself ?

A racist: B/c my skin is peach.

Q Why do u hate him ?

A racist: B/c his skin isn't peach.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOk. Whatever

That's right. There's no wytes... anywhere. It's a social construction, one we made up, off the top of our heads.
