    So if you're African then you are the moral center of this country. But saying it's OK to be white is a hateful attack.

    So if it's not OK to be white, then there must be something wrong with being white. So what's wrong?

    It's not rational to be upset or offended by the factual statement that it's okay to be white.

    So WHAT (Exactly) is the point of this thread?

    What "Issue" are you attempting to bring to a "Civil" discussion?"

    I really don't see the requirements for "setting the basis for respectful debate".

    What am I missing?

    Actually it should be soothing to the sensitivity of white liberals who have been on such a guilt trip for so long.

    I love white progressive faux outrage, as if they're being targeted directly when someone violates pc speech code.

    I'll never forget watching a guy go full SJW at work and turn into a bumbling rageaholic. It was during the Ferguson riots. One guy quoted something he'd seen on the news about someone referring to the rioters as ******s or something like that... he used the word ****** when relaying the info... and that's all it took for this lilly white snowflake to erupt into a nonsensical diatribe aimed at the guy who was just quoting something.

    Completely irrational.

    I'll be honest with you the more I look around at society the more I understand the frustration that I'm seeing from many white folks. Especially straight white males.

    A University has every right to enforce it's own policies, that's fine, but I can certainly see why a group of people may have felt the need to put something like this up.

    White people are in today's day and age are being targeted often times for literally just existing. A new Star Wars video game is coming out soon and many in the media and online lost their ever loving minds because the character you play as is a white male and they were saying stuff along the lines of "In the fictional Star Wars universe with all of the various alien species and races and genders why the hell did you make the character a WHITE MAN". That's just one of a myriad of examples I've noticed personally, this sort of thing isn't uncommon anymore.

    This is just my personal observation, I am not a white male, but seeing the media and society lately it seems to me that the whole "white privilege" thing is something you better be ok with admitting you supposedly have or else. There seems to be a very real sentiment by many minorities of "Its our turn now!" and there seems to be a pretty widespread push by society in general to help enforce that belief.

    I don't know, it may sound stupid but this makes me uncomfortable. I know how it feels to be discriminated against for literally no reason whatsoever and I also know that eventually there comes a point to where people are gonna have had about enough of that ****....

    The subliminal message behind it's okay to be white is it is not okay to be black.

    Since you asked, what you've missed is reading a thread in order to discuss the issue at hand instead of playing wannabe mod. Since you need assistance with this, allow me to provide some topics for you to discuss regarding the issue:

    For instance, you could take a side that it is INDEED okay to be white on college campuses where there have been attacks on whites merely for their being white.

    You could argue that colleges that have become SJW battlegrounds where race is an issue should not be so. Or perhaps you feel that it SHOULD be so.

    You could discuss why it is the pendulum or racial awareness has swung so far in one direction that the fact that is is necessary for whites simply to say that being white is okay might be a problem.

    Or you could simply stay out of the thread altogether if you have nothing to add.

    In any event, that is what you are missing. Of course, if you have any questions about how to post here at PF.com, feel free to ask. You're welcome.

    "subliminal"? And who exactly can prove this assertion of yours?

    I dunno, I took it as, as @Nightmare515 said above, a response to a great deal of white-hating I've seen and read about on campus that there's a backlash brewing where simply telling whites that it's okay to BE white instead of developing some kind of self-loathing defense mechanism because they're told how awful they are all the time. And just as Nightmare, I'm not white - although I am a male - and I'm getting annoyed at the uber-SJWing and suchlike from the Racial Victimhood Police.

    EVENT: Some (apparently) Moronic Troll prints a few flyers on his home computer, then spreads them around at a small college (that 95% of America has never even heard of), and it surfaces as a small story on the Local News.

    RW TAKE: This is a National Story (bigger than 9/11) because the Twitter/Reddit Trolls are spamming it on Social Media.

    Conclusion: This story is worthy of The Onion. I really find it hard to believe that this is anything more than today's installment from the RW Faux Outrage Crowd.:bored:

    I guess I forgot to add "Treat news you don't like as a conspiracy theory instead of actually discussing the issue."

    I don't think so. I think this is a response to the very real societal shift among many younger folks that if you are a heterosexual white male then you're supposed to feel guilty or something.

    Maybe among "younger folks". Who knows?

    I find it utterly ridiculous that anybody would find "It's OK to be white" to be offensive.

    Sounds like PC Run Amok.:salute:

    I guess it's OK.

    But I am not white. Jews are also a minority.

    For a long time, White Nationalism was a powerful and destructive force in the World.

    The flyers (banners) were printed in a non-union shop for starters. Secondly the slogan is associated with various white supremacist organizations around the country.

    Add conservative, Christian, and financially secure to that list, and now you're especially "problematic".

    And there's the response we've all come to expect from AJ. :applause:

    I'm proud to be white....and I don't feel guilty not one damn bit. White heterosexual males are the most discriminated against people alive. There, I said it. Prove me wrong with your affirmative action and all the other crutches available to those who aren't white males.

    I'm glad someone else notices this also, I thought perhaps I was just over analyzing things but it's pretty blatant at this point. The amount of pure venom I'm often seeing from white men even being included in anything is shocking to me. Movies, video games, media, etc. If there are too many white men in there then all hell breaks loose. There's a new Netflix series coming out called The Witcher which is a classic story set in a fictional Middle Ages sort of setting with magic and monsters and whatnot, if folks aren't familiar. It's based on a very popular set of books and video game adaptations. When it was first announced and the cast was revealed a lot of folks on the internet lost their damn minds because there weren't enough minorities in it. It's a fictional magical story about elves and magic and crap set in Dark Age SCANDINAVIA. I was reading all sorts of nonsense about "Why are there so many white people and no POC's in this".

    Hell even the movie Dunkirk got blasted for not having any "POC's" (I guess that's then new term) in a docu-movie about the massive British Army evacuation during WORLD WAR II. The producers of that should have scrounged through the archives and found the 1 black dude in the British Army during WWII and included him in the movie for proper representation.

    I have no stake in the game, I'm not a white person as I said, but as someone who is looking at all of this from the outside this is getting out of control. I'm older than most of the people who tend to make big deals out of this sort of stuff so perhaps I'm out of touch with society or something but I can certainly understand how a young white guy may feel as though it's NOT ok to be white anymore. Because it sure as hell seems like society is pushing that narrative right now, mainly among the younger folks.

    So because some white supremacist organizations say that means its automatically wrong? That anyone that says it, or supports it must be a racist? …….awfully broad brush there.

    And what's wrong with it being printed in a non-union shop? :confusion:
