Publishers, TV stations, artists, politicians from almost all parties and even large global corporations are increasingly giving in to the tyranny of “anti-racists”. The French cosmetics manufacturer L’Oreal has just officially announced that it would no longer use terms such as “brighteners” or “bleaching” on its skin care products, while its Dutch-British competitor Unilever had previously announced that it would like to give its face cream “Fair & Lovely” a different name in view of the racism debate.
Unilever has also joined Coca-Cola, Starbucks and a host of other brands in instituting a boycott of Facebook because it is not doing enough to censor dissident opinions from the right of the political spectrum. According to an article on Marketing Week yesterday, more than ninety major advertisers have joined a “Stop Hate For Profit” campaign to force Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to ban accounts voicing criticism of multiculturalism and the progressive left.
In a statement, Unilever said: “Continuing to advertise on these platforms at this time would not add value to people and society.” The CEO of Coca-Cola, James Quincey, announced a similar boycott of social media, saying: ““There is no place for racism in the world and there is no place for racism on social media.” The company’s sugary products are sold mainly in third-world countries in single-use plastic packaging which is clogging up the world’s oceans, but the more abstract issue of racism is a more pressing issue, I suppose.
Perhaps in response to such corporate pressure, 29 June 2020 turned into something of a Black Monday on YouTube where a host of dissident-right personalities saw their accounts summarily deleted, without prior warning, “strikes” or reasons given. Stefan Molyneux’s YouTube channel on which he had worked for 14 years, gaining almost one million subscribers was one of those axed, as well as Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance channel and one belonging to Richard Spencer.
The violent Black Lives Matter movement continues to shake things up in the United States. After several brands announced that they would change the name of their products, the Mississippi House of Representatives decided to remove the blue cross with white stars on a red background from its flag. Mississippi was the only state to have kept this southern Confederate emblem on its flag.
Rhode Island’s official name was “The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations,” which not only evokes slavery, but it reminds us all that they also had slaves up North and not only in the Confederate states.
John Wayne has also been the new target of elected Democrats of the State of California who want to rename the airport of Santa Ana, in Orange County, which bears his name. They criticize him for his conservative positions.
A 1971 interview resurfaced a few months ago, in which the most famous cowboy in cinema made racist and homophobic remarks. “Many blacks are angry and frustrated, perhaps rightly so,” he told Playboy magazine . “But we cannot kneel down and give them important positions right away. I believe in the supremacy of the white race until the blacks have acquired a certain level of responsibility,” he added.
The supposed pro-black movement has actually been a campaign against whites. Any positive association with whiteness should, if whites do not want to disappear quickly enough, be eliminated as soon as possible.
To achieve this, the creators of the animated series The Simpsons have decided that Apartheid or race separation – at least in the synchronization booth – will be the way to go. They have announced in the past few days that they will no longer tolerate non-white characters to be played by white voice actors in the future. The decision in itself is quite surprising, but for a cartoon whose characters have yellow skin in at least 90 percent of all cases, this reflects epic stupidity.
Likewise, Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf ranted about most positions held by whites in Scotland which happens to be… 96 percent white.
Oregon County even declared that blacks no longer had to wear face masks against Covid-19. The reason for the exemption was that we lived in a white-supremacist society.
Kelloggs Rice Krispies represented by three white boys have outraged a former Labour Party MP in the UK. Another cereal brand, Coco Pops, are chocolate coated and therefore represented by a brown monkey. This was even worse, according to the MP: “So I was wondering why Rice Krispies have three white boys representing the brand and Coco Pops have a monkey?” Fiona Onasanya demanded to know.
After black protests went global in recent weeks, non-white advertising faces are disappearing from the packaging of “white companies”, and racial categories are likely to become the standard in the real world. On June 19, PepsiCo announced that it would remove the image of the black Aunt Jemima on pancake syrup from its packaging while Mars succinctly lynched Uncle Ben’s, removing his friendly black face from its rice products.
Ironically, it was a black man, George Floyd who killed Uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima — after 130 years had passed with nary a peep about them being linked to racism and slavery.
The Hollywood actors and CEOs who have been virtue-signalling about race will certainly continue to live in their bubble with their fellow celebrities, far removed from the armies of violent, looting BLM protesters.
