This is a repost of a previous article.
The above video has been doing the rounds as apparently it is on a US campus where a white guy is taken to task for having dreadlocks which is racist, of course it is. Personally, I think the video is a fake and that they’re both very bad actors. The guy overacts and the girl has the energy of a goldfish with alzheimers.
The unfortunate thing is that this is now believable. Wearing a sombrero is racist, eating sushi is racist, watching little black kids chase goats around a track in Uganda and betting on the outcome is racist. I mean, who wouldda thought it?
There is no moment when we arrive at peak racist, and that’s the whole point. All of this is merely a massive power-play. It’s a gigantic shit-test and when you think about it that way then which side seems to be racist now? Of course, anyone who screams racist at the drop of a hat is undoubtedly a gigantic racist turd-burger themselves. But let’s have a look at this a little closer.
