Online """"socialists"""" and "white people"

Evan Cooper

I really wish they'd stop doing shit like this. Aside from being retarded, it just keeps reifying race as a legitimate concept and perpetuating this hitlerite racialist bullshit. It's possible that the poster didn't intend to imply that their whiteness is an integral component in possessing this logic, that this is representative of currently prevailing sentiment among white suburbanites specifically, but the context doesn't do much to cut through that kind of ambiguity.

In any event, people, especially so-called "socialists" deserve nothing but ridicule for perpetuating this kind of retardation and by its use validating it as a concept. "White people" aren't any more a thing than "black people," and socialists should make a point that superficial physical characteristics do not somehow equate to fundamentally different human beings, much less a coherent means of describing or categorizing individuals or groups of people.

Even on a simple pragmatic level, those people that still identify themselves racially see this sort of shit and freak out, driving them into the arms of reactionaries who replace the race-guilt liberals have been trying to cultivate with race-pride (or at the least, race-acceptance). For most normies this means supporting figures like Trump, who, despite being an acknowledged vile character himself, is not only telling them that they don't have to feel bad for being whatever, but that their enemy is PC-culture and those pushing it. It just serves as more examples for /pol/tards and other aut-right scum to point to and say, "See? There really IS a war on whites!" Even if they aren't offended on some kind of racial level, it's clearly hypocritical (e.g white people should feel guilt for the collective sin of white people, but black people shouldn't be treated as a collective whole when members of that group commit crimes). Really, that's probably what upsets people more than aspersions against their race–they're being held to a different standard of moral and ethical rigor and receive more severe criticism/punishment for what they perceive as the same or similar offenses (the whole "only whites can be racist" is another example).

Are you an online activist? Do you ascribe thoughts, behaviors, tendencies, values, etc to people based on imaginary racial lines? Then you're a piece of shit impeding the spread and development of socialism and need to fuck off.

Yeah, it's one of many bullshit pseudo-political stances the "radical" left takes that ends up alienating lots of people. I'm tired of performative politics, I'm tired of struggle sessions, and most of all I'm tired of lifestylism. The left is sick, and it seems almost dead.

Hot take: I think disaffected white males are the most revolutionary group around. Their issues aren't generally explicitly linked to their identity, and when they are it's usually expressed through a purely negative sense. It's this negativity that makes revolutionary, universalist stances like gender abolitionism and internationalism inherently appealing to white males.

implying white males aren't more receptive to gender abolitionism than most groups
implying gender abolitionism is bad
Most males define their masculinity entirely in opposition to femininity, so gender abolitionism is an obvious route to go down. Similarly, whiteness is defined entirely in opposition to blackness, so a similar line of flight is present to white males racially too. Gendered norms are stupid and so are racial ones.

Why do people like to imagine whites aren't extremely racist? Regardless of what you say, look at history for a moment. Capitalism was borne of the Atlantic ave trade.

"White people" aren't any more a thing than "black people,"
you'll never get most people to admit this, if they can ever even comprehend it. this goes especially for those who define their personal existence and identity entirely in opposition to "white people" (such as american negroes and so-called "social justice" fanatics), so that their every second utterance is "white people this" and "white people that," and who view the defiance of this trend as the worst treason imaginable

It's high school/college-y radicalism, not really designed to shock the foundations of capitalist society, but to shock older parents at a family gathering.

I think you're right in how counter-productive it is, but the problem is that this demographic is always counter-productive. Leftists of the urban, middle-class, young, hip, college-educated variety have always done more harm than good, because they're always more focused in making noise and in deliberately distancing themselves from regular society instead of building mass movements. If they stop doing this, they'll just pick up something else that is just as dumb.

The way we fight this is not by trying to tell these people to stop being idiots, which is futile, but by creating movements and organizations that will attract regular working adults who are not interested in being cool online. If you're really tired of this culture, join an union, read on socialist theory and labour practice, pick up on the nuts and bolts and use social media to reach regular people.

You don't have to compete with these people, they're not in our space, they don't own the Left, we can succeed in our objectives without ever interacting them.

what i mean to say is that "white people" and "black people" don't exist; they are invented categories; and in inventing these divisions one also creates the conditions for violence; perhaps not always genocidal, but violence nonetheless. the appropriate solution is thus to simply reject the false division in the first place. problem is most people don't want to do that

White peoples are those descended from Europe including all European subgroups and ethnicities. Black people are all people descended from Africa.

Here is the important thing though if we look at the institutions or countries that been wealthened at the expense of all the colonised peoples of the world, they are WHITE. We can squabble about them being white capitalist institutions but they're still white. The majority of liberals are white, Capitalism is the jewel of white supremacy.
In the centres of the white colonies, there exist white settlers and neo-colonialists I.e petty bourgeois, large sections of the proletariat are preyed on by lumpen and the lumpen culture is exalted by the bourgeoisie through media creating a reproducing cycle.

By "meaningful", you seem to be stipulating "perfectly". Yes, as previously stipulated, the model is imperfect and the borders are fuzzy. The medical textbook remark earlier made the implicit point earlier about the fact that people are thinking about larger bones at the tibia and radius, given that these features tend to occur in a clustering that is strongly associated with a comparatively higher expression of eumelanin in the skin.

Tbh, I always think the "it's backfiring" argument is a bit limp. A lot of the time it isn't - I mean, it's shit for actual socialists and people who want real economic change - absolutely. But demographically (ehhhh…) it doesn't seem to be driving people to the social right to anywhere near the extent that it seems tempting to think it would… and even people who should be alienated by it can occasionally be seen sticking around with those crowds in an almost masochistic fashion because they don't see an alternative.

It could backfire - but I think it's more evident that it's been absolute shit for discussion, and (largely) for actual left economics. The latter mostly just because it's aggressively disregarded by the idpol crowd. And the merits of the idpol in-and-of itself… well, it's trash. Like, your Settlers-type stuff - it's a bunch of holy rolling without historical merit. The stuff that springs up around left-idpol, as with more overtly right wing idpol, is a bunch of baseless assertions and semantics that lead largely to hostility.

Samuel Thomas

also, calling turkey an "edge case" is inaccurate. it has a population of 80 million, is a nato member, a council of europe member, and has been trying to join the e.u. since 2005. this suggests turkey is apparently in europe; according to , "white people" are those from europe; yet turks aren't considered "white people" and are also majority islamic, a religion not considered "white"

so, again, what is a white person?

move industry back to the first world

this is some stupid shit. you basically make a whole thing to push your """communist""" non-internationalist BS. This party line is stupid. Just because migration doesn't solve every problem doesn't mean it's not rational. Migration of people from the third to first world is the logical outcome of the first world hogging all the tech which makes people have fewer kids and not replace themselves. On the other hand maybe we won't need as much labor because of tech.

Either way, there's nothing wrong with migration and spoiler alert: communism involves much more industry everywhere, not bringing it back to the first world. Take your shit-tier infographic back to the drawing board and give up your shitty lines you use to appeal to racists

You are putting the focus on the wrong thing by referencing witness. A clear trend in capitalism is, simply put, that the wealthy get wealthier and the poor poorer. White's relative advantages is all down to getting an early start at capital accumulation which built on itself. That this happened along racial lines is an accident of history and geography, and to try to essentialize this is a waste of time.

I mean, what are you implying about the socialist moment? Outsourcing is implying that some countries are getting the benefit and giving shit work to other countries. When we change things you want the same countries to still be the ones getting the benefit only now they have to deal with the consequences?

It's the international equivalent of the white manager standing around giving orders while four Mexicans actually dig it, only liberals and red-liberals fill the international role of the smug #resistance liberal beautifying the situation by tweeting about it as an advance for equality and justice.

I don't disagree with him, but I think capitalism is a system, and systems can spread beyond their cultural context. Neoliberalism and globalization are forms which capitalism takes to export itself. So right now China is becoming more and more capitalist. N Korea allows people to sell goods and become rich because the state can't provide for everyone. Seeing a system start in one place and export itself beyond its origin isn't unnatural, but the history of capitalism remains unchanged in the face of new developments.

I think he's just triggered about the moving industry back, as in, de-industrialize the developing countries and use that capital to build new factories in the first world. While obviously the people in the developing world should seize their own factories and fixed capital, as should those in the first world do where they live (the first world still has plenty of industry, just very few people working in it because of automation). And whoever succeeds does socialism in one country as best they can for as long as they have to.

Daniel Hill

many 'developing countries' actually underwent a parallel process of outsourcing and deindustrialisation. Before neoliberalism and the IMF, the model of import substitution was prevalent throughout Latin America. Industrial production was kept within national borders through protectionism, energy subsidies and prohibitive tariffs on imports.

Large scale industry can no longer provide mass employment due to the development of automation. Communism would probably mean localism and the rediscovery of craft production, of truly finding joy in one's work.

Mason Clark

You realize that these jobs typically pay usually more than retail, fast-food, and driving an uber? They also had greater unionization rates enabling them to carry out class struggle, wonder why the capitalists wanted them exported to their fascist Neo-colonial hellholes in the Third World? It was really the bottom half of the Western working class that suffered the most, those "middle class" professionals did quite fine out of deindustrialization. Protecting working class jobs isn't right-wing populism and the fact that you think that probably has a lot to do with why many people started turning to the right instead of the Left during the greatest crises of capital in 80 years.

It's already been pointed out by others ITT that this isn't necessarily a zero-sum demand, and none of my critics have yet to respond to my point is that the real racism is thinking that Thais, Bangladeshis, and Chinese should spend their time working their asses off making your fancy consumer widgets all so you don't have to see the inside of a factory.

Offshoring actually increases imperialism's reliance on foreign labor and deepen's the slavery of developing nations to core nations. They receive even less in return, now the core countries content themselves with exporting software, porn, movies, music, and loans instead of actually making tangible commodities to sell as they did in the past.

you want to hand them back to capitalists that don't even fucking want them
Funnily enough, the combination of low-interest rates, rising third world wages and renewed core nation economic growth is setting the stage for renewed industrial growth in the West. It was the Volcker shock that made it so profitable to off-shore production and using the profits made from high-interest bonds off usually paid for with capital taken out of the productive sector in the first place.

The core capitalists pretty much own the production facilities in the Third World (except for China), directly or indirectly anyways. So, it isn't like we're "giving" them back anything they don't already have.

Just accept that you were born into genocidal progeny. The majority of racism comes from white people so you just have to swallow this pill, it's your historical duty.

Plus self-hatred amongst whites can actually be a useful tactical principle. Whites have consistently jeopardized and betrayed movements out of their allegiance to whiteness resulting in class collaboration.

Being able to put up with this deeply triggering and problematic trend and remain an active contributor to the movement is to me the litmus test for a committed revolutionary perspective.

Just open your eyes. Bourgeois political parties exist and dominate in the Third World too, even when there isn't ballot doctoring or intimidation. Third World politics for the last 60 years has been almost nothing but tailing the national bourgeoisie especially in those countries where there is no communist movement or insurgency to speak of.

Third World "communist" regimes (like Vietnam, China etc.) went revisionist even faster and more severely then the European communist regimes. Chilean truck drivers helped Pinochet overthrow the government and Indonesian lumpen, some peasants, and probably some proles helped kill millions of people and commit the worst genocides seen since the Holocaust in East Timor and West Papua.

I should note here I mean politics that can be described as left or progressive in that part of the world. From the center to the far-right of the political spectrum basically they usually don't even pretend to be opposed to go-fast capitalism or that they aren't good dogs of the West. When some far-right nationalist does break from that mold though it seems that we don't see any Nassers or Gaddafi's but instead we see fascists like Modi and Duterte coming to the fore who abandon their pledges not to take orders from abroad as soon as they come to power.

Why don't we talk about that? Why did the world's largest electorate of one of the world's most impoverished countries vote for a brazen fascist that makes Trump, Le Pen, and Abe all long like Berkley-bred liberal babies crying for a safe space?

I'll just redefine the term to make it mean what I want it to mean, and when I'm called out on it, I'll just say that this is what people intuitively mean even if there's no real proof of this
You're fucking stupid.

Another point is that Abe is far more of a fascist then any right-winger in mainstream electoral politics in the West. But identitarians won't touch that, just like they didn't touch the fact that Park was the daughter of a fascist and her own worldview can be described as fascist. But hey, she was a POC woman so it is different.

Third World politics for the last 60 years has been almost nothing but tailing the national bourgeoisie
No it wasn't. There are always proletarian forces fighting against neocolonialism, the existence of compradors don't tell us that the proletariat is cooperating with the bourgeoisie. In fact in almost all of these cases the compradors are maintained through external influence. This doesn't serve as an example.

Third World "communist" regimes (like Vietnam, China etc.)
The proletariat do not cooperate with the bourgeoisie in these countries, the suppress them. It is the bourgeoisie who cooperate with the proletariat in these countries.

Chilean truck drivers helped Pinochet
Chile was a previous Spanish colony and there still exist petite-bourgeois elements that descended from them. It is no surprise that there are reactionary elements in that nation.

Indonesia
The lumpen and peasants are not proletarians. They both in turns exploit and oppress the proletariat where it suits them.

While I do rebuff your concrete attempts at establishing your point I do see what you're trying to say in the abstract. You're discovering neo-colonialism exists. What you'll begin to understand however is that neo-colonial governments and states of affairs are never disconnected from the global economy but must integrate into global capitalism and in doing so white supremacy. Almost every neo-colonial government is maintained by the great colonial powers of old.

Your example of India is funny because there were reports of an unbelievable 180 million people engaging in strikes and protests not too long ago.

First worlders cannot even imagine such a thing. It is beyond anything they could ever experience in their lifetime barring extreme economic collapse in their home countries.

Neo-colonial governments and states of affairs are never disconnected from the global fascist order

Okay so:

Indonesia - CIA backed government did the killings
Chile - CIA op )well known too)
South Korea - US colony and used to be a military dictatorship run by the pentagon, now a liberal democracy run by the pentagon
India - Huge opposition movement, biggest proletarian movement in the world today outside of China

I strongly doubt it.
Believe it. Duterte wasn't the rich man's candidate, he was the poor man's choice. The liberal elite in Manilla absolutely despised him but it wasn't enough to keep him from getting elected. The "Dutertards" as his critics dubbed his fanboys were not created by the Obama administration, the EU, or any neo-colonial clique intent on serving the interest of the "Triad"

Your example of India is funny because there were reports of an unbelievable 180 million people engaging in strikes and protests not too long ago.
They also elected a man guilty of genocide, who had a hand in killing at least 3,000 muslims.While it was a great thing, you also have to keep in mind that even if we are to believe the claims that it was 180 million people that represents a rather small part of India's population since it is enormously populous. All you have done is prove that semi-colonial countries have progressive elements and movements, a fact I never denied, but you did deny the real reactionary movements that exist there or explain them away as merely the puppets of the old colonial countries. The same could be said about the working class in the core countries, there are reactionary elements but also progressive ones.

Well Japan is also white as well
There isn't any point to continuing this conversation. stop samefagging its embarrassing

Duterte
The Philippines needs a stronger and independent national bourgeoisie. He is opposing US military presence in his country and removing corruption. He's a strident nationalist and seeks to cooperate more with China and Russia in order to decrease US power over his nation. The man is basically fighting the 21st centuries opium war, how exactly is he the fascist?

All you have done is prove that semi-colonial countries have progressive elements and movements
No what I've shown is that the proletariat in these countries aren't reactionary. Which is what we've been talking about and for every individual that goes out on the streets to protest there will be five who would but couldn't. I don't need to prove that the bourgeoisie in India isn't reactionary, it simply follows that a capitalist nation will have a bourgeois leader because this is how liberal (electoral) democracy works.

You've already forgotten what point you were arguing against. You want to show that the white proletariat isn't inherently reactionary and you intend to establish this how? By showing that other proletariats around the world are also reactionary but this is nothing other than a tu quoque. What you need to show is that the white proletariat isn't reactionary and that it's not reactionary due to whiteness and labour aristocracy.

stop samefagging

Funny again, a first worlder will refer to Duterte as a fascist for cleaning his country up from the drugs pumped into it by his own (US and UK).

At the same time the population unanimously support the drug war and its methods (because it gets results). Actually I forgot to add previously the drug war is part of the war against corruption, in this sense Duterte is not cooperating with the national bourgeoisie although he is acting in their interest in terms of establishing independence.

Japs have genocidal opinions about other Asians. It's not white supremacy but there is a Yamato supremacy.

proofs? i find that hard to believe when "white people" only account for something like 15% of the global population. what of all the chinese, indian, japanese etc. business & property owners?

i've noticed one thing with discussions about whiteness is that, quite ironically, they seem to take place in a very US-centric lens. perhaps this is because of their immense obsession with race?

He was a socdem in the traditional sense - a Marxist who went through the democratic political process. That is literally true. It doesn't really take away from his politics.

Lincoln Martin

on the contrary, the concept of 'whiteness' is a product of capitalism, if you want to understand the US look into suburban property-kinship structures. This explains why a good third of hispanics and asian americans sided with Trump, because their culture is suburban. SJWs are helping capitalism administrate people rationally and that obviously means streamling stuff, the bad goes away with the good, and the people living in the absolute outside of the system remain as worse off as before. Capital itself is indiscriminating, it can make billionaires out of arab sheiks and chinese/russian apparatchiks, it can promote the 'liberation' of women and formerly oppressed castes as long as that 'liberation' means accumulating more capital.

species
No shit, different species cannot interbreed and create fertile offspring. The question is of breed, not species. Humans exhibit different cognitive capabilities and behavioral tendencies across breeds due to environmental and reproductive pressures of their regions just like different breeds of dogs or any other mammal species.

OP i agree with everything you said, idk what is up with people online that perpetuate this shit.

ever notice how twitter is full of this kind of crap too? i don't think it's funny. it was in like 2011 when the whole 'wypipo' memes were still kinda fresh with ugg boots and starbux and shit. now its just low hanging fruit for 'woke' shitlibs

Hot take: I think disaffected white males are the most revolutionary group around. Their issues aren't generally explicitly linked to their identity, and when they are it's usually expressed through a purely negative sense. It's this negativity that makes revolutionary, universalist stances like gender abolitionism and internationalism inherently appealing to white males.

heh i'm a phukking white male and i agree. look at blacks right now. fucking rap isn't even revolutionary – everyone is rapping about money and success in hip hop culture. idk, shit is fucked and the 3rd worldist critiques that everyone eats up saying black people are 'inhernetly revolutionary' or some shit piss me the fuck off

wow hot take from token black power guy looks like thread is over folks gg
