The case of being “Anti-White”

The Adventures of The Story Collector - Being Anti-White

The other week, while curating on @TheTwoChairs, I came across two new words: “white genocide” and “anti-white.” As a person interested in learning more about race and racism, I was rather mystified.

At first I thought maybe it is a satirical approach to ‘reverse racism.’ It wasn’t. 

This is a good explaination ofreverse racism:

Anyways back to the topic, so this dude (@BenjaminNeuells) goes around twitter and rants about ‘white genocide.’ From what I understand he believes that people, particularly people of colour, are against white people and are out to get rid of them. He also uses the term ‘anti-white’ as a derogative label for anyone who doesn’t believe in him.

I’m always open for an interesting and positive chat about race and racism. I also don’t condone any troll-like behaviours. A troll is a person who sows discord online by provoking argument and post inflammatory messages. And yes, he is a troll, a nonsensical one.

Genocide is usually when a race or certain group of people is KILLED. In this content, White Genocide believes that immigrants are taking over a White country, like USA and Australia. People who believe in ‘White Genocide’ are usually people who are against cultural diversity, assimilation and integration.

After a few days of thinking, I realised that racial thinking and behaviour can go on being bizarre and ridiculous.
