London Independent claims you’re promoting “white supremacy” if you care about those killed
November 17, 2015
You’re racist if you support the victims killed in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks, according to the London Independent.
The Independent’s Lulu Nunn claims if you use Facebook’s Paris image function, which allows users to place a transparent French flag over their profile images to show respect to the victims, you’re promoting “white supremacy.”
“It’s a dismaying and damaging truth that Westerners care about and empathise with images of white-skinned women grieving in Topshop bobble hats far more than brown-skinned women grieving in niqabs and, when you lend your voice to Euro-centric campaigns such as Facebook’s flag filter, you exacerbate this,” she wrote. “When we buy into such easy corporate public mourning, we uphold white supremacy.”
“We’re essentially saying that white, Western lives matter more than others.”
Who in the hell cares about the Paris victims’ skin colors? Should we stop caring as much because the victims were born with racial characteristics they had no control over?
The very notion that we should base our decision to care about victims on their skin colors is inherently racist, and numerous people commenting on the Indepedent’s article agree.
“This article is utterly disrespectful to victims of terrorism and those showing solidarity everywhere,” Thomas Hobbs wrote. “As for the phrase ‘white supremactists,’ perhaps the writer should be minded she’s a hollow, soulless human being having the arrogance and vile bile to assume what any of us think or how we should support it.”
Similarly, #BlackLivesMatter protestors and other radical leftists were attacking people supporting the victims of the Paris attacks by promoting the hashtag #FuckParis.
“I aint seen one dead body on the #ParisAttacks #Prayers4Paris my ass…. #fuckparis #BlackLivesMatter,” one self-described “internationally known” activist tweeted.
