After Oscars, Hashtags Ask: Does One Minority Group Have to Fight for Another?
By KAREN WORKMAN MARCH 2, 2016

No sooner had the curtains closed on the 88th Academy Awards, which was punctuated by Chris Rock’s scathing but broadly praised opening monologue on racism in Hollywood, than a new battle had reached a fever pitch on social media. And it had its own hashtag: #notyourmule.

Some viewers took issue with what they saw as the narrow focus of Mr. Rock’s opening monologue, which skewered racism in Hollywood but, they said, ignored the concerns of Asian, Latino and other minority artists. Others slammed the comedian’s bit involving Asian children posing as accountants as reinforcing negative stereotypes.

On Twitter, a brawl quickly erupted, highlighting a seldom-discussed type of racial tension: Does one minority group have to fight for another?

Then came the blowback: Twitter users deployed the hashtag #notyourmule to argue against the notion that it was Mr. Rock’s duty to take up the struggles of other minority groups.

The hashtag was created by Mikki Kendall, who said it refers to a line in the novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” that talks about black women carrying the burdens of the world.

Its use on social media can be traced back to an episode in 2014, when the Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton posted on Twitter that “Inside every gay man is a fierce black woman!” Critics lashed out, calling the remark derogatory and a racial appropriation, even as he tried to defend it as a compliment to black women.

In an interview, Ms. Kendall said that when she saw the criticism aimed at Mr. Rock, she thought of the other minority celebrities who spoke at the Oscars.

“So why wasn’t this call going out to people from those communities?” she said.

But critics of the hashtag denounced the lack of inclusion of other minorities in the push for equality, calling it an example of racial selfishness.

The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite — which was started last year but surged in popularity after the all-white list of acting nominees was announced — was also dragged into the fray. Its creator, April Reign, became a target, with some accusing her campaign of also not being inclusive of other minorities besides African-Americans

A freelance writer, Jaya Sundaresh, threw yet another hashtag into the mix: #OnlyOnePercent, which was intended to highlight the lack of Asian-Americans nominated for Oscars.

Jose Antonio Vargas [the gay Filipino pseudo-Latino illegal alien] … suggested another hashtag as fodder for discussion: #JournalismSoWhite.

C’mon, people, we have to focus on our Common Enemy: the Cisgender Straight White Male. They’re all in the KKK.

Like I’ve been saying, the KKKrazy Glue that holds together the Coalition of the Fringes is a constant effort to gin up reasons, such as hate crime hoaxes, to hate Core Americans.

But, what’s the chance that this could spill over into anti-Semitism? To immigrant students at, say, UCLA, newly arrived from Boratstan, American Jews must look an awful lot like the Core Americans they are encouraged to hate.

Of course, the more perceptive Jews must be breathing a sigh of relief that they got through the #OscarsSoWhite thing with 99.99% of the hatred focused upon whites in general, with virtually nobody noticing that denunciations of Hollywood are, in effect, denunciations of Jews. Spike Lee and Marlon Brando were punished for publicly mentioning the Jewish role in Hollywood and the media a quarter of a century ago, Gregg Easterbrook and Rick Sanchez in this century, and since then practically everybody seems to have learned their lessons not to notice and to just denounce whites.

But will their luck still hold with this new #JournalismSoWhite hashtag?

And what would be next? #FederalReserveChairsSoWhite?

American Jews would be prudent to be concerned about the growing anti-Israel BDS movement on college campuses, which is typically a favorite cause among exotic immigrant students who might never have heard of what happened to Spike Lee and Marlon Brando. It’s a big deal at places like UCLA because student politics is divided up into a pro-Israel alliance funded by pugnacious Israeli millionaires and an anti-Israel side among lot of foreign and immigrant students from Muslim or other Afro-Eurasian countries, along with some Europeans.

So far, the big American domestic minorities like blacks, Mexicans, and Chinese don’t pay much attention to BDS. But it could eventually spill over into or even merge with the current domestic white-bashing represented by #OscarsSoWhite and #JournalistsSoWhite. A nightmare scenario for American Jews is domestic blacks, Latinos, and Asians eventually learning from BDS to denounce as discrimination the very high Jewish proportions found in most of the really good jobs in America.

So, American Jews, maybe it’s time to consider a little more prudence on immigration and a little less enthusiasm for white-bashing, before the BLMs and SJWs pick up an anti-Semitic edge from the BDSs? White American gentiles are just about the best friends Jews ever had, so how about using your influence in the media to tone down the current white-bashing before it evolves into Jew-bashing?

    “Star Wars should have more gay characters, says The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams”

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3467516/Star-Wars-gay-characters-according-Force-Awakens-director-JJ-Abrams.html

    ‘To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility,’ he said. ‘So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world.’

    Many fans believe that Abrams already has, in fact, introduced the Star Wars universe’s first openly gay characters in X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron and defected Stormtrooper Finn.

    The two – played by Oscar Isaac and John Boyega – develop a very strong bromance after helping each other escape the First Order, with lots of fans claiming their feelings go deeper than this.

    Indeed, Googling merely ‘Finn and Poe’ will find you a plethora of fan art dedicated to the Resistance Romeos.

    Imagine the signs: “I flunked algebra.”

    Shouldn’t that be “I got a B in differential equations”? Who takes algebra in college?

    Also, instead of staging a protest with a sign, shouldn’t the said Asian who did not get an A in differential equations be committing a seppuku in public, complete with a second who cuts off his head?

    Now THAT “protest” would definitely make the news.

  12. Very tangentially on topic:

    I wonder if Trump should consider proposing a system of racial quotas for immigration, much like the Immigration Act of 1924.

    Now of course, Democrats would immediately denounce this as “racist”. But there is a simple counter: current law is racist in favor of South Americans and others, who are allowed to increase their political representation over time. Preserving the current racial/ethnic balance is fair to all current US Citizens (indeed this was the rationale behind the 1924 act). Of course Hispanics and Democrats won’t like it, but they don’t have a leg to stand on, and trying to defend themselves would expose their elect-a-new-people scheming.

    We have to try and do something about white displacement, but it’s tricky with so many non-white voters. I feel this would be a good way for a national politician to bring up the issue, without making it about white nationalism or alienating fair-minded people of different races.

    Now granted, only Trump could pull this off currently, as he did with the Muslim immigration moratorium — anyone else would be shouted down by the media. But I think he could do it. Am I off base with this?

  14. A little while ago I said the smart Obama move for the Supreme Court was to find someone whose implicit whiteness was as high as possible. Well I give you Jane L. Kelly, the focus of the rumors now:

    Jane Louise Kelly was born in 1964, to parents Richard and Judith C. Kelly,[2] and raised in Greencastle, Indiana.

    As of the census of 2010, there were 10,326 people … residing in the city. The racial makeup of the city was 92.4% White, 2.7% African American, 0.3% Native American, 1.9% Asian, 0.9% from other races, and 1.8% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.5% of the population.

    At 10,000, Greencastle is the largest city in the county, population 30,000.

  15. Jar Jar Binks was definitely gay. I don’t know about Yoda, but I can’t imagine the woman who would take that. I think the entire Ring Trilogy was gay.

    But I am not going to criticize any of it because the planet is overcrowded.

    As for Jews vis a vis the circular firing squad and “racial selfishness”: The first thing I would say is that as we get more Hispanic and Asians in the country, and by a drip effect into the media, you can expect more persecution envy directed towards black people. Why? Because, first of all, they have a documented history of being screwed, even if it stopped way before Grandma was allegedly lynched in 1964. Second, because in the urban ghettos that define “black people” to most people, they really are hapless, helpless, and hopeless (and dangerous.)

    I recently watched a TV show (it was a cop show) that featured neo Nazis who hated Jews and blacks, but, really, there’s no comparison, no comparison at all. Not only because violence against Jews is rare, but also because from a socio-economic POV it just doesn’t work.

    Will the persecution envy that I predict against blacks eventually turn against the white privilege that Jews possess? It’s quite possible. I note that underneath a lot of “Occupy” rhetoric there is anti-semitism lurking right under the surface.

    But to call on “Jews” to do X, Y, or Z ignores the fact that there are different types of Jews. Yes, there’s a sizable number of Social Justice Jews, that includes people like that whacko woman in New Jersey who was just sentenced to many years in prison for having sex with a mentally incompetent black man. But there’s also a sizable number of conservative Jews, either because they love the American dream, or because they believe that the US is the best guarantor of Israel, or both. And then there are a sizable number of Jews who are assimilationists.

    The people who are pushing open borders, either in Europe or in America, are not defined so much by being Jewish as they are by their simpering self-regard that believes that boatloads of huddled masses will only help them make money, or provide more maids and pool cleaners, not people who compete against them, beat them (in both senses of the word), and take their assets. The mentality of hereditary elites isn’t restricted to Jews. It’s common to a lot of people who have made it, and who think the system that made their good fortune possible will never been weakened to the extent that their power and wealth will ever be threatened. And they are wrong.

    I am not big on Trump but I understand his popularity. There are a lot of people — mostly, as it happens, white, but I’m sure there’s a sizable number of non-whites — who have been depressed for close to ten years, who have little future of entering the Circle of Elites, and who don’t even have the wherewithal to have a respectable, home owning, marriage with children. This new Silent Majority has been completely ignored, and by the endless promotion of alternative lifestyles, completely disrespected, and they are mad. Trump is tapping that. Good for him for doing so.

  17. “There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all … The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic … There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else”.

    President Woodrow Wilson regarded “hyphenated Americans” with suspicion, saying, “Any man who carries a hyphen about with him carries a dagger that he is ready to plunge into the vitals of this Republic whenever he gets ready.”

    This is so strange because it was totally obvious that Finn was in love with Rey. It appears that we are being prepared for a gay character in an upcoming Star Wars movie. Even Mark Hamill is now saying that Luke could be gay or bisexual.

  28. ” Who takes algebra in college?”

    You’d be surprised. As the standards keep going down to make college more accessible to minorities, material that should have been learned long before and brainfuzz like ethnic studies classes proliferate. I’ve met people who have been to college who have difficulty with doing everyday math problems involved in grocery shopping, driving, etc.

    Realistically, the STEM disciplines, Finance&Business, Medicine, are out of question for someone who can’t do algebra. Maybe language major or professional SJW fields are still possibilities? Administrators probably don’t give 2 f*cks, as long as they collect the tuition.

  29. “So, American Jews, maybe it’s time to consider a little more prudence on immigration and a little less enthusiasm for white-bashing, before the BLMs and SJWs pick up an anti-Semitic edge from the BDSs?”

    Who knows? Maybe Trump is really a tool for this.

    Sure, Jews bash him and express outrage.. but they also enable him in some strange way too.

    And so far, Trump’s main targets have been Mexicans, Chinese, and Muslims.

    He hasn’t touched Jews, homos, and blacks.

    The issue isn’t whether the Don is the Con.

    The issue is whether Jews are using him as part of a confidence trick.

    Like in a David Mamet movie?

    Maybe Jews know that open borders have gone too far. But since they’ve been too invested in it, they cannot change their position on it.
    But they can have someone else do it… all the while pretending to oppose him.

  31. > “Mr. Rock’s opening monologue, which skewered racism in Hollywood”

    It’s weird, I saw Chris Rock’s monologue as skewering anti-racism in Hollywood and elsewhere.

    … Steve Sailer has really messed me up!

    PS: Speaking of awards shows, did Steve mention the Grammys two weeks ago?

    I was stunned that Kendrick Lamar’s performance of ‘The Blacker The Berry’ and ‘Alright’ was near-universally acclaimed by all the right people. It’s… something. Visually repulsive to me:

    http://www.theverge.com/2016/2/15/11004624/grammys-2016-watch-kendrick-lamar-perform-alright-the-blacker-the-berry

    But clearly if you want to avoid the bad kind of controversy, stick to talking about blacks. That way you can be as good-controversial as you want. Plus it’s fun to talk about yourself all the time. Who cares about Asians etc.

    I am told this guy’s lyrics are self-critical, not anti-white or whatever. Hmm:

    Been feeling this way since I was 16, came to my senses
    You never liked us anyway, fuck your friendship, I meant it

    I’m black as the moon, heritage of a small village
    Pardon my residence
    Came from the bottom of mankind
    My hair is nappy, my dick is big, my nose is round and wide

    Ninety-five people were slain over the first two months of the year, the largest number of homicide victims in Chicago since 1999 and nearly double the body count over the same period of 2015 … The spike in homicides comes as the number of street stops by police plummeted from 111,831 in January and February of 2015 to just 14,648 this year.

  34. There’s no danger of blacks turning against Jews in any great numbers. Their leaders such as Jackson and Sharpton are too easily bought off and persuaded to adopt the approved positions on everything. This means, among other things, supporting mass immigration, which can have no possible benefit for blacks in the long term.

  48. But, what’s the chance that this could spill over into anti-Semitism? To immigrant students at, say, UCLA, newly arrived from Boratstan, American Jews must look an awful lot like the Core Americans they are encouraged to hate.

    New arrivals from Kazakhstan are likelier than general Americans to be attuned to the apartness of Hebrews.

  49. Spike Lee and Marlon Brando were punished for publicly mentioning the Jewish role in Hollywood and the media a quarter of a century ago, Gregg Easterbrook and Rick Sanchez in this century, and since then practically everybody seems to have learned their lessons not to notice and to just denounce whites.

    Except Joe Biden. He made Jews nervous but largely got a pass when he said, “I bet you 85 percent of those [liberal social] changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense.”

  50. I’ve been saying for decades that the Jewish eager participation in dispossessing whites of their lands and culture will backfire spectacularly on the Jews. Africans have no love for Jews already with deep resentments over the slave trade and current resentment over Jewish control of the music business (i.e. Jew hip-hop producers, agents, label managers/owners, etc). As the number of Muslims grows, and white political power fades, Jews will first see Israel cut off from American support and then attacks here at home.

    What I haven’t figured out yet is how the northeast Asians will play in this long term. Here too, Africans are already committing quite a bit of violence against them. That can only grow as Africans realize Asians relative success along with their failure to support African dysfunctional culture and demands for always more handouts. I think it’s inevitable that Africans will ultimately find themselves isolated politically as they already are socially. Their violence can only increase upon realizing this.

  53. Preserving the current racial/ethnic balance is fair to all current US Citizens

    Only readers of this blog could buy that. The left would say either that the racial/ethnic balance should reflect worldwide distribution or that all races should have equal access, which means no quotas and no limits of any kind.

    You’re forgetting that for the left immigration policy has nothing to do with being fair to US Citizens…

  61. About the Star Wars comment, the original trilogy has exactly two definitely heterosexual characters, Han and Leia, as does the prequels, Anakin and Padme. There is no hint about any other character’s sexual orientation. Luke kisses Leia but could be just confused. Of course, the movies were supposed to be action-adventure movies, not romantic comedies or dramas, so the subject just doesn’t really come up in the original trilogy. The prequels do bring in sex, very badly, since the whole point is to show Anakin fathering Luke and Leia and then turning to the Dark Side, making the issue unavoidable. But not everything is about sex. There are also only two female characters in the whole six movies, though actually the movies would probably have been better if there had been more.

    Someone mentioned Tolkien. The Hobbit makes no mention of sex or romance and has no female characters at all. But is is a children’s book and there is no reason for including this. Tolkien managed to somehow wind up with a love triangle in the Lord of the Rings, but again the trilogy focuses on other things than sex and the Eowyn-Aragon-Arwen subplot seems to have arisen accidentally. Tolkien admitted later that Arwen was underused in the books. However, the unfinished and thoroughly adult Silmarillion has tons of both female characters and sex (including a rape, its a fairly dark work), though with people not being as obsessed by homosexuality at the time Tolkien lived as they became in the later twentieth century, he didn’t think to include anything on those lines.

  68. If professors, a century after his death, can determine that Nikolai Gogol was gay — not just in his personal life, but in his works, then I guarantee that a professor a century from now will conclude that the entire fantasy universe of the last several decades was flaming gay.

    And, no, one doesn’t have to actually engage in same sex to be gay. That is because we have been informed that gayness has nothing to do with sex. I mean, there’s gay sex, but gay people were gay before they engaged in it. Sort of like determining what gender they were, before the operation.

    If Tolkien was alive today, for that matter, if Ian Fleming was alive today, they’d follow in JK Rowling’s footsteps and announce that some important character in their books was gay. Why? Because it sells books and connotes solidarity with an oppressed minority. I will admit, James Bond doesn’t sound particularly gay, but Bilbo Baggins? Please.

It’s a child’s book, but he can’t help trying to impart some important and eternal adult truths that had shaped him, things like good people and close friends get killed in wars.

  87. JJ Abrams is demanding quotas for all his films, certain numbers of Black, female, gay, Asian, Latinos not just as actors, but screenwriters, cinematographers, special effects people, etc. It will completely collapse — the Black Star Wars will do the global business of Ride Along 4.

    Black culture rewards incompetence, and posturing. It is the net result of no beta male provisioning and emphasis solely on the tingles down there for women, right now. There is a trade off between making women happy with their men’s sexy times; and general prosperity and security. The flip side is ultra-liberal SJW, where Jews from the Upper Class of NYC/DC/LA where social status on how anti-White one is dominates like Lutheran Upper classes going to Trader Joes or voting Rubio.

    As for Jewish people in the whole SJW stuff, that’s a function of preferring dynastic advancement for their own personal family over the interest of a nation. We are in the battle of the new feudalism, from roughly the 1960s, versus nationalism. It is a function of advancing one personally in unstable, status dependent social networks that exist globally — NGOs, Media, infotainment, etc. vs. the power and interest of the nation. Nation states withered because external threats were all handled by the US, and the US withered after the end of the Cold War as trans-national elites pushed hereditary aristocracy and SJW anti-White stuff to explicitly kill nationalism.

  101. Making Poe and Finn gay would be a great idea. It would solve one dilemma: I had assumed that Rey would end up in love with Finn because, even though Poe seems a better match — dashing, educated pilot, as opposed to the grunt Finn — if she ended up with Poe, the cries of RACISM would be deafening. By making them gay, the filmmakers could appease the mob in a different way, accomplishing both homosexuality and miscegenation in one fell swoop.

  102. This is a stale observation, but Jews invented “diversity” to have foils to hide behind. They needed lots of people more different from the WASP mainstream than they were. If the immigrants were from strange, foreign, and hostile cultures and religions, all the better.

    It worked. Whites in general are so angry about the cultural and religious “freak show” that the United States has become under Jewish political influence that there is no more animus left to hold the Jewish tribe accountable for the financialization and hollowing out of our economy. In short, by default Jews finally became honorary Whites where they can go about looting the economy in relative obscurity.

    Take a look at the composition and leadership of the Federal Reserve Bank, the Wall Street investment banks, and the Department of the Treasury to see what is really going on in this country. We have become the Weimar Republic.

    According to the research of Eli Faber from 1998, he posits that Jews did NOT play a leading role as the financial backers or transporters in the transatlantic or Caribbean slave trades. For starters, no ship fitted out for the slave trade that originated in Great Britain was under the direct or indirect control of a Jew. The data provided by the author demonstrates that Jews played little or no role in importing or selling slaves. If you could find research that contradicts his findings, I am all ears.

    Unfortunately for the NYTimes, the WSJ figured out an internet revenue model: turn the website into (mostly) pay-only and give away the newspaper as a freebie to subscribers. Meanwhile, the NYTimes still hawks the newspaper the old-fashioned way (discounted teaser-rates converted to regular price after intro period), and sells on-line access as an add-on.

Although the article mentions “pugnacious Jewish millionaires” in the pro-Israel group, it omits to mention that more American Jews both millionaire and not are on the opposite, anti-Israel side because their leftist credentials are more important to them than Israel. It’s this Jewish house divided with the majority of diaspora Jews continuing to march with the Left including Obama’s sell out to Iran that is the greatest existential threat to Israel in tandem with Iran’s plans.

  122. “Carson last hosted the Oscars in 1983. You’d have to be middle age to remember him.”

    Is that a crime?

    In any event, I never saw him host the Oscars. I barely saw any TV in the 80s, and I haven’t seen an Oscars show since sometime in the 70s. I saw a YouTube clip of one of Carson’s Oscars monologues.

  123. Article from Cracked. Signs of ambiguity and open mindedness. Didn’t listen to the podcast though.

  124. How odd, the last third of my comment is missing. Too long? Too many links? I quoted a few more lyrics, including self-critical ones and anti po-po ones, linked to the full lyrics of each song, and linked to an interview with the singer explaining how the song he sings from the top of a vandalized police car on BET is a song of hope and how we should “stop deluding it”. Ah well, it was fun to write. As someone quipped: “Rapper criticizes police. News at 11″. Please clap.
