Okay, first of all, if you are a white person and your first response to the notion of a list of racists is “why isn’t (insert black politician) on that list?”, then congratulations! You’re a volunteer for our list of racists! Because, see, nobody even fucking mentioned skin color until you brought it into the conversation. Skin color matters to you? You’re a racist!
If you are a white person and your next response is, “there’s nothing wrong with being white!”, congratulations again on being a volunteer for our list of racists. Because, once again, nobody brought in skin color until you did.
If you are a white person and your response to the ADL, SPLC, etc. reporting an uptick of attacks on Jewish cemeteries and bomb threats against Jewish community centers is to say “nuh-uh, that’s just the liberal media” , congratulations, you’re a racist! Because goysplaining away the experience of these people saying they aren’t really experiencing the uptick in racist attacks that they report is, uhm, racist.
And if you say that Jews are phoning in bomb threats on their own community centers, congratulations, Donald Trump, you’re a racist.
If your response to the above photograph is to say “ooh gross”, guess what: You’re a bigot. Congratulations!
And if your response to this post is “I’m not a racist / bigot! How dare you!”, well, thanks for volunteering that you’re a racist or bigot. We appreciate your kindness in letting us know about your sad mental deficiency up front, so that we can avoid you in the future. Have a nice day!
Now, if I cared enough, I’d contact someone in a free country and ask them to set up a site that tracked and listed racists and bigots. Heck, just automating the SPLC database all by itself would be great, right now it’s damn hard to locate specific bigots and racists on that site. But really, I don’t care enough. Because, as the above examples show, it’s not hard to spot bigots and racists. Fuck, they declare themselves to you outright most of the time!
