Tired Tired Arguments
Today I said as much when a friend posted one of those "Spike Lee is also racist, so come on" and some asshole called me a white liberal feeling guilty and abasing himself so that black people will like me.
It's another tired argument. We can't be pissed about racism or the unfairness of oppression because it's wrong. No one who has ever thought that this systematic oppression is bullshit has ever done it for pure motives or at empathy. No. It's white guilt. Male feminists just want to get laid. If you believe in gay rights, it's not because you have gay friends or relatives and you don't want them to suffer. It's not because you hate injustice. Nope. You must be gay.
And to a lesser extent - and this one I don't see often because most of my FB friends are Jews - there's the "I know Jews that are against Israel (or very critical of Israel) and some even compare Israel to Nazi Germany" or something along those lines. And everyone who states this fact is doing it in defense of being called anti-Semitic for being overtly critical of Israel - but of course, it's not the criticism. It's the comparison of Israel to Nazi Germany and the obsession with Israel's crimes and a de facto free pass to every other nation. Actually that last one is a combination of anti-Semitism and anti-Arab racism since somehow Syria is expected to engage in genocide without too much consternation from outsiders.
But it's not about Israel so much as the tired and pathetic state of the arguments. It's like those old BBS chat rooms where new people would come in and say things that they thought was revelatory ("fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity") not realizing how boring and sad they were being. I have actually seen "some of my best friends are black" written on these forums.
