Ah, yes. The classic argument used by radical feminists and social justice warriors to justify or excuse their own or another's bigotry, discrimination, and fascism, "<insert discrimination here> = Prejudice + Power". Not content with the objective definition of a term, they resort to a carefully crafted version of it to fit their own argument and warped point of view.

In the attempt to avoid being discriminative, the "prejudice + power" argument ends up being just that. Funny, yet unequivocally ironic. :)

By far, one of the best messages I have seen on the Internet, and yet another masterpiece by BJSParky.

Art-wise, the letters are simple, but highlighted for an in-your face technique. These letters also contrast the dark, scratched background. You are lucky to have an artist this talented to work on this piece.

But the crux of this work is the message it spreads, especially with the prejudice plus power argument put forth by those "social terrorists", especially Bahar Mustafa. Everybody can be and possibly has been racist towards other races, even if their skin is very, very dark. This work counters such arguments in spectacular fashion. Brilliant work, Brent!

This is a very simple concept but that doesn't mean it isn't powerful. Sometimes what needs to be said needs to be simple so people will get it. I love how sexist and racist is in red and the font size is adjusted for the parts that need to get the message across the strongest. The background is simple and a good choice for this message and it needs to be said. I am not against anyone but no one should get special treatment because of gender or skin color. Bad for business. The good employee doesn't get served and the bad one ruins it. Good job.

The irony here is lost to the Liberals but the Right clearly sees the irony. A black man can be just as racist as a white man. A woman can be just as sexist as a man. Liberals call it heresy, the Right calls it common sense. Well done.

Thank you, I agree with this so much. I also have a question when people say things like "only white people can be racist", where does that leave mixed race people? If you're half white are you half racist? What about if you're 1/4 white, does that just make you 1/4 racist?

That's a very good question! I would assume that by their logic, it would depend on your status in the "oppression hierarchy", or whatever bullshit they call it. ;)

it's called the "progressive stack". straight white males are at the very bottom. with disabled, trans, brown people supposedly at the top.

the higher a person's inherited privileges, the more the neo marxists and post modernists apparently feel a need to restrict a perosn's influence on society.

including deplatforming them, sometimes through the use of violence or threat thereof. case in point the berkeley riots in america. not even gay white jewish men are allowed to talk in public unless they stick to the narrative, that they are all being perpetually oppressed by the evil straight white men, which is demonstrably false.

to answer the mixed race question, the american journalist tim pool, who is half white and half korean, if i remember correctly, is often called a nazi by far leftists, and yet at the same time, he would be kicked out of the alt right's ethno state for not being a purebred.

so it's highly subjective, depending on the ideological lens a person views race through. personally i just like tim because he's a centrist and tries hard not to be biased in his reporting... although he does often struggle not to get frustrated with the progressive elements of the left, as that's where his roots are, and he sees them alienating a lot of mainstream people with their bigotry.

thanks brent. i hope more of the public wake up to the influences of these divisive and subversive ideologies, which is why mediums like yours are so important.

for anyone unaware of what's going on, this is not a new threat we're dealing with. it didn't start with the election of donald trump... some of it dates back to 1930's germany. in a small town called weimar. that ended up drastically changing history for all of us... then a resurgence in italy during the 1970's where there was over a decade of civil unrest. including massive street battles including a lot of bombings and countless shootings. resulting in hundreds of people loosing their lives.

since the end of the cold war, the overton window in the west, has been slowly creeping (by design) towards the more radical elements of the far left.

with hundreds of thousands of students currently being taught revisionist marxist history in colleagues and universities. while the post modernists work hard to undermine the english language by redefining words. which they can then change the context depending on who their political targets are.

"words are violence... so is silence" being another good example.

www.psychologytoday.com/gb/blo…

this is how a group of rich, middle to upper class white, so called "anti fascists" can physically force a conservative black women out of a restaurant in today's america while screaming "nazis go home" and throwing drinks over her and her colleagues.

just because she dared to have a world perspective, that doesn't require she is kept in ideological, metaphysical chains of dependency, on virtue signalling people like themselves.

to some people, that might seem like petty drama and rather innocuous, as no one was injured, however...

"those who refuse to learn from history are destined to repeat it".

I agree 100%.

There is also a danger in the "Racism/Sexism = Prejudice + Power" argument in that if we were to redefine Racism/Sexism
as such, it would allow those "not in power" *aka minorities/women* to be openly racist and sexist and not have to face
any sort of consequences for their actions.

brentcherry Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2016  Professional General Artist
Exactly! Not only that, but according to that logic, I, a middle-class white male, have more power to discriminate than Barrack Obama, Michelle Obama, and Oprah Winfrey, based on my skin colour alone, which is absurd. :)

Precisely.

You'd think that statements like ours would be taken more seriously by the SJWs if
they were stated by people from the minority (and trust me, there are black people
that disagree with SJWs), sadly, said people are all but invisible to the SJWs because
they believe that if you are in a minority you must automatically agree with SJW rhetoric
or be an SJW. It's the same with Feminism and women who disagree with it's ideals.

Honestly it's like SJW's live in their own little world, where people of their same gender/race that
disagree with them simply don't exist.

Oh I know of many minorities who not only disagree with SJWs, but downright hate them.

That's a pretty accurate description of them. :)

magshi Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Indeed.

In fact, the SJW's have further supported this imaginary world of theirs by flat out making up words and jargon. Like the stupid
term "Microaggressions" which itself is nothing more than an excuse for SJWs to call almost EVERYTHING WE DO racist or sexist
in some form without considering other circumstances and common sense.

If i see someone wearing a hoodie with the hood up and both hands in their pockets, i WILL be more cautious around them, even
avoid them if need be, REGARDLESS of what color their skin is. If someone is suspicious, it pays to be cautious around them, for all
i know, this hypothetical person i encounter could very well be hiding a knife or worse gun inside those pockets.

It can make things kinda awkward for me cause I'm in a ton of classes that are mainly guys, and they sometimes get worried that I'll get really offended by a wee comment and they'll get in serious trouble cause I'll claim their being sexist or something. Its a shame for them.

I definitely agree.  There is this mindset out there that us black people cannot be racist or prejudiced, that anything we do is a result of "white privilege" and "oppression".  I'm sick of hearing it. About 90% of the racial vitriol I've heard in the past ten or fifteen years have come out of the mouths of black people, mostly towards whites.  And any black person that doesn't follow that way of thinking, like myself, are subject to all sorts of ridicule from other black people.  It's ridiculous.  There are racists and sexists in every race out there, not just one in particular.

I'm tired of being told I'm oppressed because I'm black.  Honestly, I've never been oppressed a day in my life.  I didn't have much growing up, but that didn't come from any oppression.  I don't have much now, and I still don't feel oppressed.  It's just something a bunch of self-entitled, whiny lazies like to throw out there to justify their lack of fortitude.  They don't want to work for anything; just want it to be given to them.  Slavery ended over 150 years ago, and there are still people crying about it, knuckleheads that were never in that time frame, mind you.  Those same ones get mad at me for not being out there with them calling for "reparations" for slavery.  I have a job, and the freedom to work.  That's all the reparations I need
