There is a mantra floating around, particularly among white supremacists, white nationalists and similar racist ilk, that by saying you're anti-racist, you're somehow also anti-white, with the conspiracy theory that the real bigots are actually the anti-racists.
Apart from racial superiority being a retarded concept as it is, it also ignores the simple fact that many white people are also anti-racist. So do all white people who hate racism hold some kind of bigotry against their own ethnicity? Additionally, the mantra also ignores the existence of racists from other ethnicities. (E.g. black and Asian supremacists.) The only reason I can see this mantra gaining some ground in the first place is because of so-called "anti-racists" who bash white people like the plague, because they're apparently what's wrong with everything in the goddamn world, past and present.
When being anti-racist is the default assumption in polite society, the fact that one feels an irrepressible need to prove that one is not a racist often insinuates unresolved hostility issues with the majority demographic and/or the preeminent culture associated with it.
"particularly among white supremacists, white nationalists and similar racist ilk"
Actually, the majority do not fit into any of these categories. I know quite a few non-white people who also believe that "anti-racist" is a codeword for "anti-white." And then most white people I know who believe this are not supremacists or nationalists of any kind, let alone racist. This is quite the big assumption.
Just because someone CLAIMS to be anti-racism doesn't mean they actually are. And that's actually the point of them making that claim. Further, those who CLAIM to be anti-racism sure spend a ton of time demonizing white people. But that's just been my experience.
I think it's safe to assume that there are exceptions to every rule, but that doesn't make a certain statement any less true.
Obviously not everyone who claims to be against racism actually is. Just like not everyone who claims to be against intolerance is actually tolerant. You can't forget the hypocrites... they don't let you.
But not everyone who says they are against racism is going around demonizing white people either...
In the stamp description, I think it is summed up nicely. She's not saying everyone is going to fit into the categories she provides as an example. That doesn't make the example any less true.
To sum my long ramble up: The group "Anti-Racists" has both good and bad people within it.
"I think it's safe to assume that there are exceptions to every rule, but that doesn't make a certain statement any less true."
But then the person making the claim about what the rule is versus the exceptions has to prove that the group they /think/ is the rule is /actually/ the rule and not the exception.
"Obviously not everyone who claims to be against racism actually is. Just like not everyone who claims to be against intolerance is actually tolerant. You can't forget the hypocrites... they don't let you."
Yes, but are the hypocrites the majority, or are the non-hypocrites the majority?
"But not everyone who says they are against racism is going around demonizing white people either..."
Again, but is it the /rule/ that they do, or is that the exception?
"To sum my long ramble up: The group "Anti-Racists" has both good and bad people within it."
Indeed, but that can make the persons statement false. Because in quite a few cases I've seen, yes, it is indeed a code word for anti-white.
But that's where discernment comes in. And I'm pretty sure many people lack that.
Okay. Observational findings aren't the same thing as statistical findings, and as this would be quite hard to get an accurate result on because people can say whatever they want about themselves, it would a lot of trouble to go to for just finding out which is the majority and which is the minority.
Maybe the stamp should say, "Anti-Racist SHOULD NOT be a code word for Anti-White".
The very concept itself, Anti-Racism, suggests that one is opposed to racism. It in itself cannot be a code word for Anti-White, as the concept of Anti-White is racist in nature.
However, it can be used as a code word for Anti-White, or anything else, for that matter. Just because some use it so does not make it so.
