467. What a load of dog whistle crap!
Let's take the "Mandingo" thread with the picture of the valiant knight of the Ku Klux Klan as an example.

Yes, the poster said, oh jeez, this is just so interesting, and of course I'm not a racist, but let's examine the image of blacks as sex crazed Mandingos and the awful image of the valiant Klansman on horseback ...

Everyone saw through the bullshit. Everyone.

That was just trying to be evil and coat it with a veneer of oh isn't this interesting...

Bullshit, and everyone who wasn't invested in the ongoing conflict saw it as bullshit.

Even if you can't grasp it, so much of this thread is about how maybe people outside the oppressed group can't understand what's offensive to the oppressed group so they should take their cues from the oppressed group.

But when it comes to posting pictures of valiant knights of the Ku Klux Klan just because it's so intellectually stimulating and GLBT people of color leave in droves, we're supposed to shut the fuck up and pretend no dog whistle was intended. Right. That's why THERE IS NOT A SINGLE GLBT AA PERSON LEFT ON DU mkay???
