In my own life, talking to my friends and family, I’ve found that holding people to their own absurd ideology works pretty well to embarrass them in to silence. One particular dialogue tree I’ve been working on is… I ask my white-phobe friend to define and give evidence of “systemic racism”, inevitably they mention a disparity in outcomes across racial lines. So I say “ok systemic racism is any human activity, which on a society scale produces disparate outcomes across races?”. They agree with this definition, and I’ve got them. I then ask “OKAY CAN YOU GIVE ME 3 EXAMPLES ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY OF SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT SYSTEMICALLY RACIST?!” And they cannot do it. They have defined everything that isn’t the idealized race communist hellscape, as “systemic racism”. Everything in any multi-ethnic society, which is 100% of all human civilizations that we know of, have failed to reach perfect racial parity in all things, or anything. So everything every human has ever done has 100% been systemically racist. And we know, if there was an example of western achieving these things they would simply expand the scope, “oh well Americans achieved equity, if they aren’t equitable with Mexicans, with North Americans, with the Western Hemisphere, with the planet earth, you still need to do the work.
So their goals are absurd, they are overtly racist, and it’s worth reminding them that racists always thought their racism was morally good. The literal Klan thought what they were doing was morally upright and correct. RACISTS ALWAYS THINK THEIR RACISM IS THE GOOD PATH. Remind them of this, as you obliterated their dumb fuckery.
