Agreed. And to condone it is insanity.

You're an angry elf.



I have made people pose for such photos. I made the white subject move into shade and the black into more lit portions of the composition. I used flash fill on the black subject, while metering for the white subject. Nobody seems to have taken offense at my racism.
Are we just going to ignore the hideously racist historical context of telling people of a certain race to "move to the back" the way the lady in the video did (Thanks to DLJ for posting the relevant picture)? Consider

The point in my analogy is that there is more to racism than treating people differently on the basis of race. Something extra has to go into that action. You have to take into account the motivation of the action. Conversely one could consider my actions in positioning photographic subjects racist because I grouped people by race. I would just tell them to grow a thicker skin.

Personally, it takes a lot for me to decide if I can consider someone a racist. It's not a term I use lightly. Therefore I eliminate every other possible explanation, including garden variety bigotry, first. I have to see someone as threatening to take my, or someone else's, lunch (or in many cases their lives) before I can use that term.

The Dallas cop killer was a racist. Whites as group have every right to be outraged and terrified that there is/was someone out there with a bulls eye on them. Same thing with Dylann Roof.

For this lady, I would say find out what her motivation was before making the call. Good thing is the whites she told to move back are still alive. In a position to share their side of the story. I just don't get the feeling that they were as hurt by her suggestion as some on this thread.

The only time Black Lives Matter condemned the actions of their members was when they had a peaceful picnic with police. That should tell you all you need to know about BLM lol.

The thought actually kind of turns me on.

They tend to be kinda docile and slow-moving if you keep them full of donuts.
