To be honest, whenever people - especially members of marginalized groups - bring up political incorrectness as a defense for some sort of fail, I just roll my eyes. Political incorrectness, to me, is just another divide-and-conquer strategy to keep marginalized communities negatively focused on one another.
Ever notice how politically incorrect humor/observations, much like institutionalized racism, generally tend to flow one way - towards marginalized groups? It's just a way to attempt to say something derogatory about a group and maintain immunity. One might as well preface a statement with, "I'm not a racist/ transphobe/ sexist/ homophobe, but...."
See, I've noticed that groups like POC, for example, can't be fully "politically incorrect" about white people, not even in humor. Hell, they walk out of friggin' Paul Mooney shows and most POC consider him to be pretty tame. And for all the white folks who've traversed the blogosphere and gone home crying, understand that what you've read on the race blogs so far is actually diluted. That's POC actually being nice - even on blogs like White Watch. So if you're hurt, angered, and/or frightened by what POC have said so far, then you're not even remotely ready to handle what many POC actually want to say.
Let me throw some full-on, no holds barred, politically incorrect "humor" at you about white people. Afterward, tell me how "amusing" it was. Tell me how any POC could get away with saying this sort of thing regularly in public forums.
You ready? *deep breath*
White people are becoming extinct and it's about goddamn time. They are the one group of people on earth whom absolutely no one else will miss. The only problem is, their extinction's not happening nearly fast enough. I mean, yeah...the negative birth rates and ain't-shit genes are doing some of the work and all, but that's just Nature, and Nature can be slow as hell.Say this - exactly like this - to a mixed audience and they will not be amused. Expect a mass walk-out. You'll be lucky if the most you get is *crickets*. But put all the "porch monkeys, sand niggers, spics, chinks, fags, trannies, whores (as in women), or cripples" on cold, vicious blast, and before you can even finish your sentence, there goes the thundering applause.
Sometimes I feel as though POC all across the globe are just staring at the metaphoric clock waiting for it to strike midnight on white humanity. White folks don't seem to grasp just how borrowed their time is; that POC worldwide - at this point - are operating on sheer politeness, when we really don't have to. Shit, most of us stay awake fantasizing about plunging a wooden stake into a vampire' heart. You know...just to "see".
Like, sometimes I wonder if China's just rubbing her temples and saying shit to herself like, "We could helm a transcontinental alliance, invade the infested regions in full force, and just get it over with. Yeeeeeaaaaahhhh, there's a risk of global economic collapse, but not if we take a page from their history: exterminate the pesky majority for its resources, then replace it with fellow POC so business can keep running as usual. Lord knows we've got billions worldwide to spare. Pretty sure they wouldn't mind the commute."
I mean, you can't blame us. They've infected every continent on this globe, obliterated millions of fellow human beings - sometimes just for shits and giggles - and now they're making inroads into Antarctica when there ain't no people even there! WTF??? Why bother? They're not going to be around much longer anyway!
Fuck...die off already! Pick up the fucking pace!
Because while words have power, the slurs "cracker" and "cave wookie" (along with stereotypes about not being able to dance, roasting in the sun, and being the dumbest people on the planet) don't. Most white people hear that and just laugh. But get politically incorrect with them in any way they haven't pre-approved, and suddenly there's a problem with being politically incorrect (notice how when Louis broached the future of white people, the laughter in the audience dimmed. Notice also how quickly he had to get through that part).
Disclaimer: For the record, I do NOT support the mass extermination of white people. Genocide is wrong - period. Furthermore, as a rather spiritual sort of pygmy, I take offense to killing. I think it's the highest mark of mortal hubris to simply murder someone else in cold blood.
So go on ahead and breathe your sigh of relief, white people.
