Looking good; I think it's a mainspace-ready stub. :P FᴜᴢᴢʏCᴀᴛPᴏᴛᴀᴛᴏ﹐ Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 17:11, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

You talking as if calling races bullshit and denying racism were the same thing.--Arisboch (talk) 21:34, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Refusing to acknowledge race has racist effects, however anti-racist in intent. That includes looking at someone and professing to not even understand the question "what is this person's race?" <3 CSapphire bullets of pure love 22:08, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Buying into that pseudoscientific bullshit is necessary to combat racism??? What the shit fuck is that???--Arisboch (talk) 22:16, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
What pseudoscientific bullshit specifically? ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:33, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
The notion of race in general. It doesn't mean denying racism, it's seeing racism as a even more idiotic.--Arisboch (talk) 22:34, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Uh huh, and when you say "the notion of race in general", what you actually mean is the (pseudo)scientific theory of races as distinct and meaningful taxonomic groups within humans, as if this is all that's ever been said on the subject of race.

Photographs[edit]

I found the Jez piece while looking for incidents in which fancy digital cameras' facial recognition software failed to recognize non-white faces (most egregiously, a camera made by a Korean company, albeit for the U.S. market, that didn't identify a South Asian person as human). I couldn't find anything, but it might be interesting to add. <3 CSapphire bullets of pure love 22:06, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

I don't really see the relevance here. You're talking about how photography & related technology tends to treat caucasian as the default skin colour. This article is about people (mostly white liberals) who use the principle of racial equality to dismiss people's racial identity & related experiences as unimportant. Both are examples of white privilege but the connection between them is tenuous at best. WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:59, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Here a non-mainstream perspective from myself[edit]

I am not sure if it is really bad to be colorblind. I mean, Hitler wanted people to stop being colorblind too. Hitler also thought he was "woke" and not "colorblind". So it would only be appropriate to show parallels between the BLM and the NSDAP, since parallels between the NSDAP and Trump are being shown too. Just my two cents. 217.128.167.152 (talk) 15:04, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

Are you a troll? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:43, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. What classifies me as a "troll"? Not sharing your opinion? 217.128.167.152 (talk) 16:48, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
Saying BLM is similar to the Nazi Party. That's completely divorced from reality. So, either your severely misinformed, incredibility stupid, or saying provocative shit to get a reaction. Now, I personally am trying not to assume that you're a moron, so... ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 17:05, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
If we all agreed on everything the world & life would be a very boring & dull place. I am just saying that the Nazis also were first seen as a revolution, and it took long until Germans woke up and saw that Hitler was no better than Weimar. 217.128.167.152 (talk) 17:32, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
That's a non-answer. I'm not asking or demanding that you agree with an opinion. I'm telling you you are factually wrong. And you're "just saying" is unsubstantiated fear mongering without (apparently) anything to back it up, else you'd have brought it out by now. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:44, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
