Ah, yes. The classic argument used by radical feminists and social justice warriors to justify or excuse their own or another's bigotry, discrimination, and fascism, "<insert discrimination here> = Prejudice + Power". Not content with the objective definition of a term, they resort to a carefully crafted version of it to fit their own argument and warped point of view.

In the attempt to avoid being discriminative, the "prejudice + power" argument ends up being just that. Funny, yet unequivocally ironic. :)

By far, one of the best messages I have seen on the Internet, and yet another masterpiece by BJSParky.

Art-wise, the letters are simple, but highlighted for an in-your face technique. These letters also contrast the dark, scratched background. You are lucky to have an artist this talented to work on this piece.

But the crux of this work is the message it spreads, especially with the prejudice plus power argument put forth by those "social terrorists", especially Bahar Mustafa. Everybody can be and possibly has been racist towards other races, even if their skin is very, very dark. This work counters such arguments in spectacular fashion. Brilliant work, Brent!

This is a very simple concept but that doesn't mean it isn't powerful. Sometimes what needs to be said needs to be simple so people will get it. I love how sexist and racist is in red and the font size is adjusted for the parts that need to get the message across the strongest. The background is simple and a good choice for this message and it needs to be said. I am not against anyone but no one should get special treatment because of gender or skin color. Bad for business. The good employee doesn't get served and the bad one ruins it. Good job.

The irony here is lost to the Liberals but the Right clearly sees the irony. A black man can be just as racist as a white man. A woman can be just as sexist as a man. Liberals call it heresy, the Right calls it common sense. Well done.

Thank you, I agree with this so much. I also have a question when people say things like "only white people can be racist", where does that leave mixed race people? If you're half white are you half racist? What about if you're 1/4 white, does that just make you 1/4 racist?

That's a very good question! I would assume that by their logic, it would depend on your status in the "oppression hierarchy", or whatever bullshit they call it. ;)

I agree 100%.

There is also a danger in the "Racism/Sexism = Prejudice + Power" argument in that if we were to redefine Racism/Sexism
as such, it would allow those "not in power" *aka minorities/women* to be openly racist and sexist and not have to face
any sort of consequences for their actions.

:iconbrentcherry:
brentcherry Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2016  Professional General Artist
Exactly! Not only that, but according to that logic, I, a middle-class white male, have more power to discriminate than Barrack Obama, Michelle Obama, and Oprah Winfrey, based on my skin colour alone, which is absurd. :)

Precisely.

You'd think that statements like ours would be taken more seriously by the SJWs if
they were stated by people from the minority (and trust me, there are black people
that disagree with SJWs), sadly, said people are all but invisible to the SJWs because
they believe that if you are in a minority you must automatically agree with SJW rhetoric
or be an SJW. It's the same with Feminism and women who disagree with it's ideals.

Honestly it's like SJW's live in their own little world, where people of their same gender/race that
disagree with them simply don't exist.

Oh I know of many minorities who not only disagree with SJWs, but downright hate them.

That's a pretty accurate description of them. :)

Indeed.

In fact, the SJW's have further supported this imaginary world of theirs by flat out making up words and jargon. Like the stupid
term "Microaggressions" which itself is nothing more than an excuse for SJWs to call almost EVERYTHING WE DO racist or sexist
in some form without considering other circumstances and common sense.

If i see someone wearing a hoodie with the hood up and both hands in their pockets, i WILL be more cautious around them, even
avoid them if need be, REGARDLESS of what color their skin is. If someone is suspicious, it pays to be cautious around them, for all
i know, this hypothetical person i encounter could very well be hiding a knife or worse gun inside those pockets.

I'm sick and tired of people thinking like that. Quite a few girls in my year have been really sexist to guys (mainly considering sport or clothing) and the guy got blamed 90% of the time.

It can make things kinda awkward for me cause I'm in a ton of classes that are mainly guys, and they sometimes get worried that I'll get really offended by a wee comment and they'll get in serious trouble cause I'll claim their being sexist or something. Its a shame for them.

I definitely agree.  There is this mindset out there that us black people cannot be racist or prejudiced, that anything we do is a result of "white privilege" and "oppression".  I'm sick of hearing it. About 90% of the racial vitriol I've heard in the past ten or fifteen years have come out of the mouths of black people, mostly towards whites.  And any black person that doesn't follow that way of thinking, like myself, are subject to all sorts of ridicule from other black people.  It's ridiculous.  There are racists and sexists in every race out there, not just one in particular.

I'm tired of being told I'm oppressed because I'm black.  Honestly, I've never been oppressed a day in my life.  I didn't have much growing up, but that didn't come from any oppression.  I don't have much now, and I still don't feel oppressed.  It's just something a bunch of self-entitled, whiny lazies like to throw out there to justify their lack of fortitude.  They don't want to work for anything; just want it to be given to them.  Slavery ended over 150 years ago, and there are still people crying about it, knuckleheads that were never in that time frame, mind you.  Those same ones get mad at me for not being out there with them calling for "reparations" for slavery.  I have a job, and the freedom to work.  That's all the reparations I need

So, by that logic (prejudice+power), Barack Obama is quite literally worthless as a president? Since even a disease ridden, homeless white guy could walk into the White House, tell Obama to fuck off, then take the president's position, all because he's white?

And why even talk about Hillary, then? Again, following this logic, she has no goddamn chance. She lacks the proper privilege points (hey, if the feminists want to treat gender and racial issues like a fucking game, Han we might as well use the proper terminology) to even stand a chance against Sanders or Trump.

And while we're at it, let's say that quite literally EVERY SINGLE FEMALE BUSINESS OWNER IN AMERICA (which includes my mother; thanks assholes) has no reason to be in a position of power. Amy white male could just take their jobs whenever they want because they have more power by default. That's just logic, right?
