Okay. Allow me to speak to the world on how unfair it is that males; especially white males have it too damn easy. If anybody should be able to speak on this matter and why it is unfair to the rest of the non white male world that white men are privileged while African Americans, Hispanics, Arabs, Asians, a Native Americans, Indians (Remember to all the fucks who don’t realize but there is a difference between Native Americans and Indians) people from faiths stemming beyond Christianity (Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etcetera), oh and not to mention WOMEN of all different colors, creeds, and backgrounds are not it should come from somebody who truly sees the injustice in the way things work.
First, let’s start with Native Americans. We stole basically every inch of this country sans a few reservations that we left as a token of pity from people who were on this continent as well as South America. We massacred practically an entire race from the face of the earth, but we treat Native American culture as a sideshow; a novelty item; a practical joke. White privileged men run around in Native headdresses making a hollow mockery of the terrors and disease we as white men plagued these innocent people with. Native Americans are still treated as outsiders regardless of the fact that “Native” is part of their race’s name. This is of course topped off with the little cherry garnish that they are referred to as “Indians” which are an entirely different country and culture.
Now, let’s look at African Americans… This country wasn’t just built on the bloodshed of the Natives, but the backbreaking labor of slaves ripped from their country and forced into the new world of torture along with the complete colonization of their homeland and seizure of all of their natural resources which has left Africa a third world country still to this day. (Sounds very much like our buddies the Native Americans, doesn’t it?) Now, along with the endless list of derogatory names including but not limited to the word that has been the pinnacle of oppression for centuries, “nigger”, we have also held the entirety of African American culture down when it comes to prejudice in the work place, in the eyes of the law (which if you’ve checked the headlines lately will reveal that the police state has overgrown and is destroying the lives of almost completely innocent African Americans as well as several other various groups of people that are not white men), as well as society as a whole. As a society we have been conditioned to believe that African Americans are more lude, crude, classless, vulgar, impoverished, drug addicted, lazy, criminalistic, poorly dressed, aggressive and violent than white men. Now, if in fact any African Americans have been classified as this, I can assure you the justification lies in how we have stereotyped the entire culture; held their head under water and told them to breathe while at the same time glorifying white males as the ones chosen to lead our society into the future. Now, we have an African American president named Barack Obama and when criticism has struck our leader of the free world which we stole and built with slaves, it has often a times been met with some kind of racial slur; either blatant or subtle. We have not allowed the man to lead the nation without critiquing his every move as if they were preparing for his parole which I’m sure you all know is quite often thrown around when it comes to him being called an “immigrant”, a “criminal”, or even a “terrorist”. He has been held to higher standards than all previous presidents before him simply because he is an African American; one who worked hard all his life to finally prove to an entire race that were once slaves that even they could be president one day. But, honestly, is there anybody reading this who truly feels that they could run the country better than a Harvard educated Constitutional lawyer? If you do, you may need to see a therapist because you’re suffering from delusions of grandeur or even an extreme case of narcissism.
Now, a race of people entirely close to my heart- Hispanics. My mother is Hispanic, my girlfriend is Hispanic, my best friends are Hispanic, my grandmother who raised me was Hispanic- furthermore I am still part Hispanic but would you honestly know that from the color of my skin or the color of my eyes? No. But, oddly enough, the joke is on you, because soon you’ll see that your country will be almost completely filled with Hispanics who are willing to work harder and do jobs that are beneath white privileged males because they’re honest, hardworking, determined, and furthermore NOT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS. Hispanics are not only classified as illegals, though- oh, quite the contrary. Hispanics are stereotyped as lazy, unintelligent, criminals, drug dealers, job stealers,(sounds a ton like what African Americans go through) and why do white males stereotype them as such? Because they realized that as more and more Hispanics come into this country generation after generation, white males will have to work harder for the things that they take for granted in life so often. They take abuse day in and day out being called “filthy Mexicans”, “Ricans”, “Spics”, and the names go on, but soon will be rising up and taking the jobs that they are more qualified to work than lazy white men who think the world owes them a living yet have never worked a day in their life.
Let’s bring into the picture, Asians. Now, I’m not referring to middle eastern cultures or Russia, but rather what white men mock by calling “slanty eyed gooks”. Let’s go back to the 1940’s during World War II… There was a certain thing called Japanese internment camps where due to the actions of a country the United States was at war with, we completely threw the constitutional rights of countless Asian Americans out the window seizing their land, personal property, as well as too many lives to count and forced thousands of people into small quarters where many of them would starve, fall ill, and suffer. Why? Because their eyes had a different shape. Flash forward to the Korea and Vietnam conflicts (We should really call them wars and not beat around the bush when we discuss how there was no declaration of war yet we sent thousands of men to war to die, but I digress)… Once again, Asian Americans were met with backlash as if they were the source of this turmoil. Asians to this day are stereotyped as shifty, frugal, overly intelligent, cat killers. Many of them are faced with insults that are too vulgar to disclose. Once again, doing so much for non white males.
September 11, 2001 didn’t just claim the lives of the men and women in the World Trade Center and the planes that struck those two towers- it left a black mark on Arabic culture as well as Hindu’s indirectly. From that point forward, if you had shown any signs of being Muslim, Arabic, or Indian, you could not get through an airport or anyplace else without being profiled as a terrorist or without a thousand eyes glaring at you as if you were responsible. If only the world turned to look at a copy of the Karan, they would see that the Islamic culture is based off peace and beauty. But white men in authority need someone to point the finger at and exclaim, “That’s the bad guy.” When was the last time you saw a white man being profiled at an airport or a museum.
Gay, Lesbian, Transgendered, Bisexual, Questioning, Pansexual… There’s not one person in any of those classifications who has no felt the animosity of countless men and women around the world. They have had God thrown at them as well as a million and one ways to prejudice them as being “filthy” and “weird” when in reality, they can’t help being who they are no more than anybody on this earth can help be who they are. I doubt anybody has tried to make a white male feel sorry for who he is before today.
Okay, so here’s the last group that we must discuss and it is very important that we do because regardless of who you are you all came out of one- women. John Lennon once wrote that “A woman is the nigger of the world.” Mr. Lennon was correct in making that analogy because women are treated as seconds to men and the way women are treated in society is disgusting. Women have been described as weak, emotional, overly sensitive, unintelligent, whores, sluts, evil (Blame old Eve in the Old Testament for starting that one up), and are given less privilege and power in the world than men. Men constantly overpower women. Women earn a fraction of what men earn working the same job in the same amount of hours for the same level of experience. Women are constantly under attack for their rights to birth control, abortion, fair health care, not to mention the protection of their bodies. Rape and spousal abuse is a very serious issue that we do not discuss often enough. At times it doesn’t matter if the truth is self evident that a man has forced himself upon a woman because technicalities will be thrown at the issue and they’ll claim she was “asking for it”. Women are at times seen for nothing more than pleasure, breeding, and homemaking (which I am not shaming, but must point out is not mandatory for all women who want more for themselves than that). Women are shamed for having more than one partner while men are hailed as gods for sleeping with half the town. Women are treated either as objects or if not up to the typical standards of beauty, then hideous beasts who should lose 30 pounds, get corrective surgery, wear more makeup, dress more scantily clad, and hate themselves for being who they are. Women have been treated as second class citizens since the beginning of time and we have yet to do anything about it.
My point in all of this is that white men don’t suffer the same hardships the rest of the world has to because they are not white men. The white man has had it easy since the beginning of time and will always have it easy but why should everybody else have to suffer? So the next time you think about how difficult it is to dial 1 for English, you think that all public assistance programs are wastes of our money, or you think that you have it rougher than the rest of the world, maybe you should think about everybody else that isn’t you.

I was talking about why Chef Gordon Ramsay was so angry all the time, and explained that he originally wanted to be a professional soccer player but suffered a really bad knee injury and couldn’t play anymore, so he poured himself into cooking and culinary arts to help with his anger issues, but his abusive alcoholic father disapproved of his cooking and died before ever tasting any of it and I realized that Gordon Ramsay has the most anime backstory ever.
It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.
Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up.
The X-Men have been an allegory for racism ever since their creation you fucking idiot
If that hasn’t been blatantly obvious from the first issue you picked up, then I don’t know what kinda shit you’re on.
Also, fun fact, the movies show the divide between humans and mutants as an allegory for the LGBT+ civil rights movement going on now.
In a facebook post by X-Men movie writer Zach Stentz:
And in an interview on why he chose to play Magneto, Sir Ian McKellan said:
"I was sold it by Bryan [Singer, the director of the X-Men movies] who said, ‘Mutants are like gays. They’re cast out by society for no good reason. And, as in all civil rights movements, they have to decide: Are they going to take the Xavier line — which is to somehow assimilate and stand up for yourself and be proud of what you are, but get on with everybody — or are you going to take the alternative view — which is, if necessary, use violence to stand up for your own rights. And that’s true. I’ve come across that division within the gay rights movement.”
Marvel has always been about seeing yourself within the characters. Spider-man even though he has super powers, has every day life problems. Making the right decisions, money issues, relationship issues, etc. etc. X-men have always been about discrimination. Whether it’s Race, gender, or sexual orientation. If you don’t like it, go read/watch DC movies about billionaires and aliens.
It really, really can’t be that difficult. Following the very publicized event that took place at a The Story So Far show last year, there were several similar incidents at a Tigers Jaw show last night. Incredibly offensive audience members attempted to kiss Britty Drake from Pity Sex and Brianna Collins from Tigers Jaw on stage. POZ had a team member at the show who can confirm the news, and you can check out tweets and photos (via Nerve) from the night below after the jump.
