White Folks in Britain, Stop Being Punk Bitches

(Thanks, Ms Afropolitan!)

The nihilistic grievance culture of the black inner city, fanned by parts of the hip-hop/rap scene and copied by many white people, has created a hardcore sub-culture of post-political disaffection. The disaffection is mainly unjustified. It’s as if the routine brutalities and racist humiliations of 30 to 40 years ago have been lovingly preserved to provide a motor of real anger for what is really just a kind of adolescent pose.

~ that nitwit David Starkey


I don't really have much more to add to Rashid's brilliant and spot-on comments.  This is a classic case of a seemingly universal white tendency to flee responsibility.  With both Americans and Brits attempting to rewrite and obscure both recent and distant history, the term draptoresponsia has never seemed to be more meaningful.

This drapto behavior coming out of white Britain is supremely pathetic.  Forget upsetting, disturbing, or offensive - it's pathetic.  It's right on par with those "grown" white shitheads who threw their drink on a 6-year-old black girl.  It's on par with every pack of white folks who braaaaavely ever outnumbered and assaulted a single POC.  David Starkey and all his mates might as well get forehead tattoos proclaiming, "Spineless, dickless wastes of space walking.  Keep minimum safe distance in order to avoid contamination."

Seriously, white people...if running away from responsibility, borrowing trillions of dollars, attacking the defenseless, stuffing women in dumpsters, and fucking little boys is how you demonstrate your might, you may as well just give up now.

And for all you white people out there struggling to make a living, remember this.  Remember this moment when, once again, black people were blamed for all your problems.  Remember how satisfied and comforted you were when you were told everything was someone else's fault, and someone else's problem.  Replay this moment over and over again in your mind the next time you're stressing to pay bills and some politician with a six-figure salary tells you black people are the reason why your employer won't give you a raise, or why food is so expensive, or why the price of utilities has gone up, or why you can't afford tuition for your kids, and there are no jobs waiting for them.

Do be kind and rewind to this moment when your wealthy counterparts sold you down the river yet again so they could comfortably maintain the status quo.  And remember how willingly you bent over, thinking you were taking one for the "team."

  1. Blaming niggers has worked so well in the past, even if you see all the CCTV of rainbow folks, tweets and facebook status blaming Negroes in the most easiest route.

    Even though the casualties of the riots are Black, Asian and White. Forget about all that shit.
    I would be lying if I said I was surprised.

    I loved Nabil's response,I still have not watched Starkey's video in full.

    sidenote I love UPSHOT TV it has been a while since I have been to a comedy show.

    David is a very foolish and ignorant man. I mean, who in there right minds would listen to the bull ish that is dripping form that guy's mouth?! And he call's himself a historian?

    One thing that Rashid mentioned was when David said sounding white=sounding intelligent. I want to say, Black people, please stop saying this.

    Both black and white people have said this to me. And some black people goes onto say that because someone "sounds white" they think they are better than the rest of black people.

    Please tell me, if sounding white=sounding intelligent, that what does sounding ignorant equals to?

    Did he? I thought he specifically mentioned "educated" and "historian", as in, "Don't use your degree to mislead the public."

  4. Do NOT read the comments on this one:

    More than 100 historians have signed an open letter expressing their dismay at Starkey's controversial comments on the riots during an appearance on the BBC's Newsnight programme.

    They asked the BBC to stop referring to Starkey as a "historian" on anything but his specialist subject, the Tudors, claiming that he is "ill-fitted" to hold forth on other topics.

    ...In a letter to the Times Higher Education magazine, the collective of 102 academics said: "His crass generalisations about black culture and white culture as oppositional, monolithic entities demonstrate a failure to grasp the subtleties of race and class that would disgrace a first-year history undergraduate.

    "In fact, it appears to us that the BBC was more interested in employing him for his on-screen persona and tendency to make comments that viewers find offensive than for his skills as a historian.

    "In addition to noting that a historian should argue from evidence rather than assumption, we are also disappointed by Starkey's lack of professionalism on Newsnight.

    "Instead of thoughtfully responding to criticism, he simply shouted it down; instead of debating his fellow panellists from a position of knowledge, he belittled and derided them. On Newsnight, as on other appearances for the BBC, Starkey displayed some of the worst practices of an academic, practices that most of us have been working hard to change."

    I'm pretty sure that is what he says near the end. 8:54. Pass sounding white as sounding educated, sorry he said sounding educated and not intelligent.

  6. It's pathetic on so many levels, but it's also hilarious. I thought the British were a people of conquerors as they once controlled most of the world. Now, they are a shadow of their former selves crying about the big, bad, black people. This is too damn rich. Ha ha ha!

    This is why I don't want to hear about that "personal responsibility" crap they throw at us, because it's hypocritical bullshit. I say if they want to talk about being responsible, they need to PRACTICE IT BEFORE THEY CAN PREACH IT. PERIOD.

  11. I was bad Ankh. I actually read the comments on that article, when you said not to. But it was for a good reason, I swear! I did it, because I wanted to see ignorant white people play their "Political Correctness Card". And in browsing the comments on the article, I was relieved that these "suddenly brave", internet, white people didn't let me down.

  13. It's amazing how everyday we as POC face these same problems on a seemingly smaller scale due to assumed white privilege. When are we going to say enough is enough and STOP internalizing this BS?I faced this problem only job where I was told by a white supervisor that he 'Feels' he has to do my job (though it is in his job description if Its in mine since i am at entry level) and is just disrespectful to everyone they meet And then blames.. You guessed it..the 'lazy' black people if their shot isn't done or if heaven forbids she has to come to work and WORK!!! but the point I'm driving to is that this is the essence of what drives things like the London riots. Everyday when a white person enforces their beliefs of superiority and entitlement do we get one step closer from Anytown, USA turning into a rioting London street corner.

  14. From Marxist Update:

    The thinly disguised or even openly racist views coming from top officials and in the media have also further emboldened fascist ultra-nationalist groups like the English Defence League or the British National Party. Racist mobs, including members of those groups, have openly marched around and threatened to "kill blacks," and there have been many calls on "respectable" blogging sites like Yahoo UK to expel and even "exterminate" immigrants.

    But as the swaggering British rulers counter-attack, it's also clear they've been rocked back on their heels. A World to Win News Service wrote that the youth proved "far more fluid and fast-moving than even the mobile police forces." And, "This has caused shock among the establishment 'talking heads,' who have struggled to explain this. They recoil at the idea that there are broad ranks of youth, numbering in the millions, who feel themselves to be excluded from society and to have no allegiance to its norms and rules and who long for the chance they are getting today." What took place in the streets of Britain was a revolt against the hated established order. And the oppressive state that enforces that order is increasingly losing legitimacy in the eyes of millions, among those at the very bottom and more broadly throughout society.

  16. His comment about how we should be less inviting and overly eager to welcome others into our world is shrewd. Let's face it; other folks 'round this globe of ours aren't nearly as welcoming to us as we are to them. His Indian rapper/Bollywood comment nailed it.

    K-Pop fans will remember how non-black fans responded to Telisha Shaw's K-Pop satiric song, saying if she was trying to have a K-Pop career, she wouldn't be welcomed in Korea as a star. Keep in mind, much of K-Pop is rooted in hip-hop, R&B, and soul, and many of their artists try to come to America to work with Black artists and perform essentially "Black" music in front of Black audiences and, in short, earn some Black dollars.

    But let a thoroughbred Negro with some twists, locs, dreads, or braids try to have a K-Pop career and see what happens.

    Exactly my friends have said things like that many times. Black people are very inviting, if someone is white or asian and wants to perform in a predomently Black whatever if they are good they get open arms. If we did try to do have a career in their musical fields or whatever they get all rude.

    K-pop and J-pop and the rest are the ones that really grate on my nerves. It's like you have the whole Hip hop and RnB and Soul vibe which is essentially Black American Music yet you have a 'tude? WTF

    On a sidenote I did hear about a Black American man in a Bollywood film over on Racialicious a few months back and there's that girl Pumashock although i don't know about whether the audience are taking a liking to them or not.

    She covered some Korean songs, but she's not going to have a K-Pop career. As one blogger noted it's about both sides exploiting the publicity.

    It goes to any field. Like if a black decides to make a film that mixes Urban and X, he'll be treated like crap. Now if a white guy does it, it's alright.

    Like the Last Dragon and the Karate Kid. White people and everyone else will watch the White Karate kid before they watch the Last Dragon.

  21. But seriously, it's messed up that white people borrow so much, but when black people tapped in to the same genre they get a stink eye.

    not to derail but it goes along with Mr. Nabil was saying.

    actually think about the urban movies staring white people.

    Historically whites have always enjoyed that double standard. Don’t do as we do, but rather, do as we say. Remember, Buddy Holly played the Apollo. Its not so much that we’re inviting as much as we are accommodating. If you’re true to the culture then you get a pass. Some elements in our community have given hood passes to a few white rappers, allowing them usage of the N-word to their hearts delight. Now dey’s real rappers. Now they're genuine. The n-word gives them the street-cred they so desperately yearn for. To speak and posture like the black people they emulate. These young suburbanites can’t get dey flow on unless they’re permitted to invoke the all-powerful nigga this and yeah nigga that.

    Even if black rappers stopped using the n-word whites would still be down with it to maintain/preserve that ethnic authenticity. The same way whites use black dialect when penning historical pieces. We may not know what V-Nasty’s been through- and we may not know where she’s been. But we do know she’s white. This particular modicum is indisputable. None of her trials and tribulations is on par with what blacks go through every day. A continuing trend we’re seeing lately of whites claiming to be oppressed. “Therefore it naturally follows that I should be allowed to use the n-word,” they reason. On the other hand The Borg say, "Yeah its Ok for us to appropriate, just don't you do it."

    Then we need to stop being so accommodating.

    We may not know what V-Nasty’s been through- and we may not know where she’s been. But we do know she’s white. This particular modicum is indisputable. None of her trials and tribulations is on par with what blacks go through every day.

    Don't get me started on V-Nasty and Kreayshawn. $10 says that whole "crew" ends up getting beat down on national television. Fuck, I'll help.

    As for this trend of white people claiming oppression - they don't know what that is. But sometimes they're going to find out over the next century. I'm getting sick this "You don't know what I've been through" line - it's convenient derailing drone speech designed to shut down arguments.

  24. That Kreayshawn and her stupid dumb arse crew piss me off like hell. I saw a freestyle that Kreayshawn did on one radio show It was disgusting crap, at least it had a lot of thumbs down.

    I had to cleanse myself by listening to rap girl group called Ill Manered www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCOsdSsXMfQth
    It's sad that these girls don't have a much exposure.

    The only reason why White girl mob got signed is because they are white they have a gimmick. Then they start chatting about how the feel like they are being oppressed. Bitch shut up

    Once you give whites permission to use the n-word they’ll wear it out. “Finally we can say it! Yeah nigga!!” Now instead of saying, “please pass the butter Mom,” as one privileged white child might say. Its now, “pass the butter nigga.” Once it really starts getting good to them it might sound like, “pass the nigga- nigga.” Now the benevolent title of Father- Dad, Mom or Sis, takes on a whole new twist. Everyone living in the household is reduced to the personage of, My Nigga.

    White Football commentators from hence forth can say, “Look at that nigga run!” Sports-related talk show hosts can be genuine with black guests by greeting them with a complimentary, “What’s up my nigga?” The world will make sense to whites once again.

    One commenter made a wonderful point and it’s this:
    “If Eminem could make a legendary career as a white rapper without using the N word, so can these chicks.”

    But they can't, and that's the point. They're trying to make this about race, so they'll generate enough controversy to help people overlook that they don't have any talent. Eminem is a gifted wordsmith whose career spans over a decade, and no...not once had has he needed to use "nigga" on any of his platinum-selling albums, or at any of his sold-out shows. When Eminem rapped about growing up poor, having a dysfunctional childhood, being a single father, and dealing with a coked out ex-wife while dodging uber-creepy fans, the word "nigga" was not the number one thing on his mind.

    Eternia is a white underground female rapper from Canada who doesn't need to say "nigga" to talk about some real shit - gender discrimination, domestic violence, or encouraging kids to make education a priority (she actually goes on school tours). V-Nasty whines about "what she's been through" and how that gives her the right to use "nigga" - which, by the way, makes absolutely no goddamn sense. Meanwhile, Eternia raps about how commercial hip hop industry is basiclly waging a misogynistic war, driving great female emcees are underground because they refused to be bobble-heads like these bitches. Eternia raps about her mom getting beaten senseless by her dad because she wouldn't abort Eternia. Which brings us to this crucial truth: if a white rapper's biggest issue in the game is getting to use "nigga", then not only must they not have any talent, but they almost must not have been through some real shit. Because white rappers who've been through real shit are too busying talking about their shit to have time to debate the merits of "nigga." In other words, they have better things to do.

  28. @Ankhesen Mié: That is so true. Like I remember in one of Spike Lee movies that one of the characters said it best.

    "They may talk like us, dress like us, But they can never be the real thing."

    which is true, Saying the word doesn't make you real, it makes you a poser.

    News Flash: V-Nasty Says She Won’t Say The “N” Word Anymore And She Didn’t Understand.

    Amazing… catch white people in their foolishness about racial matters and all of a sudden they plead ignorance. This little white girl wants to be anything other than the Caucasian that she is. She’s even gone to great length to take on an appearance that makes her appear non-white. But the paleness of her skin reeks of wanton privilege.

    Reminds me of an old commercial, If you think it's butter, but it's not, it's Chiffon . She thinks she’s black but she’s >Chiffon.

    A quote from the 1986 film, Soul Man : About a rich- privileged white man who dons blackface to obtain a Harvard Law School scholarship, specifically set aside for black people.

    “Professor Banks: You've learned something I can't teach them. You've learned what it feels like to be black.
    Mark: No sir.
    Professor Banks: Beg your pardon?
    Mark: I don't really know what it feels like sir. If I didn't like it, I could always get out. It's not the same sir.
    Professor Banks: You've learned a great deal more than I thought.”

    John Howard Griffin went to great lengths to see what it felt like to be black. But when the pressure got to be too much; and when he could endure the humiliation/degradation in his new skin no more, he opted out. Thus, when the pressure gets to be too much for this little white girl and she tires from wearing blackface, she can always opt out. That’s why she can never truly fathom what it means to be black.

  37. She didn't understand? What the fuck ever. She still needs smacked - simply on principle.
