My blog does not, in any way, shape or form, endorse harm, violence or genocide to anyone, including white people, and from now on, anyone who makes a comment that alludes to it in any way will not pass.
I do NOT hate white people. I won’t water it down by saying that some of my friends are white, even though they are. Still, that doesn’t mean I should keep my mouth shut, or in this case my fingers away from the keyboard, whenever white racism shows out.
xPraetorius, the author of his blog the Praetorian Writers’ Group, insists that I’m racist against white people as he continues to reference me in his posts. I took it upon myself to confront him in his corner of the blogosphere to clear some things. That’s why I’m talking about him here and now.
Even though I admit that I have a racist mindset, it’s more prejudice than racist as I have NO power to suppress an entire group based on the false concept of race. But as you recall, xPraetorius doesn’t want to hear any of that. He frankly doesn’t want to hear anything I have to say to him, because everything I say goes into the hogwash trash bin of close-mindedness if it doesn’t fit into his conservative folder.
Through xPraetorius’ “conservative” reasoning, I’m a leftist by default, a foot soldier for a complex known as the race grievance industry. Any proof of anti-black racism from literally anywhere is dismissed on the spot, because they’re simply not true, according to conservatives, including black conservatives. My arguments that anti-black racism is still a major issue is – in short – stupid and baseless. He knows me and black people more than we know ourselves, and any attempts to summarize who or what he is just wrong. He lost out of a mortage opportunity because, as he says, a black woman denied it due to him being white. He believes anti-white racism is more acceptable and widespread. He won’t let go of a comment by diaryofanegress’ comment that he says hints towards white genocide, and wants me to denounce it in my blog for his satisfaction. Any accusation against him is wrong while any accusation against you is right. Nuff said. The reason why he was banned from at least two blogs – one of them being mine – is that we won’t admit he’s right, our arguments are weak, and we treated him like crap while he was “respectable”, nothing to do with his tone which I personally find condescending or that nothing he says is substantial or new. And by kicking him out, we’re cowards who are against free speech.
If xPraetorius reads this, he will likely select everything he concludes is wrong in his own blog while probably saying something along the lines that he likes me, but I libel against him. Whether he does or not is irrelevant, but his online attitudes towards liberals as seen in his own blog could be seen as poisonous conspiracy thinking, a habit the right seems to exhibit when things don’t go their way. Blogging about the pain and horrors that are born from white racism seems to be one of those things white conservatives think is racist itself. xPraetorius somehow found out about my blog and took it upon himself to comment on it. Still, he insists that it was my fault for making my blog public in the first place. Had it not been out there in the open, he wouldn’t have left a comment in the first place. Basically, that’s his reasoning.
xPraetorius will protest that as well. He claims he’s part of an “increasingly influential think tank” of at least five writers, one of them being a black woman that all write exactly the same. He also claims that he has a lot of friends, those whom I also offended by banning them. Strange how they all had the same IP address which translates into using the same computer, and they almost never comment on his blog at all. Nevertheless, he insists they’re all different people, and that they’re all his “friends”.
Whatever the case, xPraetorius doesn’t think his tone is condescending, nor does he agree that how he comments is nothing unique among many white people in conversations about race. In as many words as possible, it’s clear he’s not about having such a discussion as he’s more about telling me what to think and/or feel. Though, he would never say it outright, it’s heavily implied – sometimes repeatedly – by the way he comments.
It’s no use trying to converse with an individual that doesn’t want to converse. So, it’s no use to tell xPraetorius or any other white-minded person who prefers I shut up and just accept that I’m racist against white people and “part of the problem”. They seem to prefer that you are so that they can tell you that you are to prove a baseless point, because you blog about stuff white people do, and that – in turn -makes you a racist.
Blogging about white racism doesn’t make you a racist, nor does it mean you hate white people. In some cases, it’s never about white people as it’s more about racism in favor of whites and the annoying, infuriating and devastating it’s numerous forms and incidents they have on nonwhites.
If xPraetorius was serious about joining in the conversation about race and racism, he should’ve responded more like, “I may not totally understand what you’re saying or what you’ve been through, but I will listen and learn as best as I can so I can get a better understanding and grow as a person” or “I may not completely agree with what you’re saying, but I respect it just the same and maybe I could one day get a better grasp at what you’re saying.” But he might consider that too “liberal” for him to do. More or less, in his view, it’s hard out there being a straight white male.
