The crazies have been out in force this week, that is for sure. From athletes who stand during the American National Anthem are racist, to Dr Seuss is racist, video games are racist, and white emojis are racist as well. The last one makes me laugh if it is racist for white people to use black emoji’s because that is digital blackface, but it’s racist to use white emojis, what the fuck can white people do?
Don’t believe me; this emoji thing is getting complicated if you are white and you care.
Originally, I thought the emoji variations would be a pullout menu from the current emoji keyboard – in other words, that they would default to white, but offer other colors by request. We have enough trouble with real-life folks treating “white person” as the default form of human; making white be the literal default setting for human icons sound disastrous. But Robinson Meyer at The Atlantic set me straight: emoji people will echo the bright yellow of their more cartoonish cousins. The emoji keyboard currently contains two kinds of face icon – the ones that look like drawings of people, which are now Caucasian pink, and the ones that look like the button on the cover of Watchmen.
Have you thought, hey there might be differences in the programming for iPhones in different areas? As a former Apple employee, I know Apple regionalises iPads and iPhones sold in the various countries, so the Emoji Keyboard in India, for instance, the default emoji will be brown skin, and the default emojis in China will be yellow, etc., etc., etc. You’re just a racist who thinks all iPhones and all iPads will have the same ‘white-centric’ emoji keyboard because Apple and the west are ‘racist’. The emoji defaults to white in the west because the west has the highest percentage of white people in the world, so the default should be white for ease of use. But going with your title, we come to a quandary.
If one person thinks that white people using coloured emoji’ is perpetuating racism through digital blackface, and another says, white emoji’s by default is racist because they are ‘celebrating white supremacy’, what kind of emoji’s can a white person use if they take either of you seriously? It’s like sneaking up behind a person and slapping them in the behind.
It looks like, if you are white, the default for you is racist white supremacist Nazi who is out to destroy minorities. Even kind, loving authors who wanted to give kids interesting books to read when they are children, like Dr Seuss.
The Massachusetts elementary school librarian who rejected Dr Seuss books donated by First Lady Melania Trump because the publication’s artwork contained “racist mockery,” was previously photographed dressed as the Cat in the Hat and holding a “Green Eggs and Ham” themed breakfast.
Liz Phipps Soeiro was busted Friday by Twitter users after she snubbed the First Lady’s donation to the Cambridgeport Elementary School. Soeiro wrote in a letter to Trump that the school could not accept the books, which included: “The Cat in the Hat,” “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and “Green Eggs and Ham.”
Well, well, well. What do we have here? A woman who claims that Dr Seuss is a racist monster, denigrating his works, celebrates his works by cosplaying the Cat in the hat.
The sensitivity of these social justice warriors is ridiculous, Dr Seuss is not racist, and the only people who will find racism is individuals who learn that everything is sexist, everything is racist, and everything is homophobic, and you literally need to point it all out. Barbara4u2c had the perfect response to this yesterday, so I’m gonna just link the video.
But it gets better; standing is racist now. Welcome to 2017! (Thanks to Chris Ray Gun)
It’s a question of privilege.
Yup, the buzz word of the decade. It’s 2017, and everybody needs to check their privilege. Okay, let’s look at my privilege. I live under the poverty line, looking for work, working my ass off on blogs every single day, with the privilege of having a beautiful woman in my life who is in love with me. What privilege do I have for the mere fact that I am white, and I am a man?
The absence of white athletes kneeling for the anthem Sunday was a particularly illustrative moment in white privilege.
See, for white athletes, the anthem and American flag do represent freedom, liberty and whatever other amorphous American values one might ascribe these symbols. So, from their view, kneeling would be disrespectful to the privileges a white supremacist nation affords them.
What? Seriously, what do you mean? Is America a White supremacist nation? RU kidding me?
America is not a white supremacist country, and I don’t know why you think that. When you say something as hyperbolic as America, as a country, practices white supremacy, you are saying it is like Nazi Germany. Do you understand why we all shake our heads at you? In Nazi Germany, there wouldn’t even be black athletes enjoying multi-million dollar salaries. But America is a white supremacist nation, giving people of every skin colour and every gender every opportunity to create the life they want.
It is becoming so hard to take people who have filled with ‘white guilt’ seriously anymore, because standing for the national anthem becomes a racist act, nor can you tell the difference between real racism and a bunch of guys having some fun.
That reminds me, My Premier, Kathleen Wynne hates a ‘racist’ video game so much, she tweeted about it.
This type of racism has no place in Ontario. I know this does not reflect the values of the people of Markham. huffingtonpost.ca/entry/dirty-ch…
What a lovely tweet. I wonder if Kathleen realised I live in Ontario, writing about this kind of stuff and working on a webcomic that will ultimately satirise what leftists think of #GamerGate in the ultimate webcomic novel, what she would feel about me. LOL!
Players get points for using dogs and cats as food sources.
LOL! OMG, I want to play this game. Please, Google and Apple, put this game on your store, I’d play it for a laugh.
A trailer for a supposed new video game that plays on racist stereotypes about Chinese restaurants is riling up a New York congresswoman, who says it’s in bad taste.
The game, called “Dirty Chinese Restaurant,” centers around a man named “Wong Fu,” who just inherited a restaurant from his brother.
Players score points through saving food costs by dumpster diving and chasing after dogs and cats with a cleaver. Characters in the game also evade taxes and pesky immigration officials.
I wonder if there is any sense of humour left in world of political correctness. When people get offended by something so overtly satirical, it is hilarious in itself. The perpetual offended squad is why it is so funny using that kind of humour. When you make something forbidden, people find it more funny and more interesting, you take non-issues and make them into things they are not. These guys are total racists, no wonder why they call their game company Big-O-Tree games.
The developer behind the supposed game, Markham, Ontario-based Big-O-Tree Games (most likely a play on the word “bigotry”) announced the game a year ago with a tasteless trailer, which can be seen below.
I give you a gold star. You figured it out, Big-O-Tree is a pun on bigotry. Word play and offensive jokes are the weapons of choice for internet dissidents who are fighting the system of the authoritarian left.
Thanks for reading this Shitpost Saturday, and have a fantastic day guys!
