Perth city centre 'It's okay to be white' stickers condemned

17 December 2019

Scotland's deputy first minister has condemned the appearance of stickers bearing the slogan "It's okay to be white" in Perth city centre.

The stickers were posted on lampposts and drainpipes throughout the city at the weekend.

John Swinney, who is also MSP for Perthshire North, said the "atrocious" stickers had "no place in Perth or any other part of our country."

Police Scotland said it was "currently looking into the matter."

Posting on Twitter, Mr Swinney said: "We must stand together to resist this unacceptable material."

White Pride. Black Pride. etc. etc. etc.

Can anyone tell me what special skill they used to insure they were of one race, religion or ethnic origin?

What the hell do they have to proud of?? Is there a special process before your sperm is chosen and your egg is chosen that you are personally involved in? Did you work hard at picking your race, etc.?

Someone should contact Human Rights Watch and tell them about this. This behaviour by the authorities in Scotland is unacceptable. White people do also have a right to exist.

patom,

I'm not a fan of identitarian politics myself, to be frank.

But since the political left has embarked on a crusade to fan the fires of racial animosity and division...white people need to protect their own interests in the SJW era.

Really? I never pictured the Klan as the political left. Or Aryan Nation, Black Panthers, etc. etc. being left leaning.

It is out of pocket that it is literally not ok to be white.

But meh Europe is filled with self hating people.

I'm white. Not a goddamned thing I can do about it.
I'm black, Asian, Latino, etc. etc. Not a goddamned thing I can do about it.
I'm not apologizing for what I am because I didn't have a goddamned thing to do with it.
Especially at this late date in life.

Rugian, depends on where you live I suppose. Main stream or little creek. Which mainstream? Does the mainstream allow the little creeks to flourish for their own purposes?

Am I supposed to bow down to any stream because they say this or that to me? Fuck em. I've pretty much been a contrarian most of my life. and I ain't changing now at 76.

patom,

Outside of maybe David Duke in Louisiana in the 1990s, white supremacist groups have been virtual non-entities for as long as I've been alive. They aren't the ones influencing mass culture or exercising control over government and educational institutions.

jergul,

So what isn't a goddamn dog whistle then? "Fuck white people?" "Whiteness is a form of oppression?" How far do we have to go with the language before you're convinced that wanting *actual* racial parity isn't some secret plot to bring about the Fourth Reich?
