An open letter to my fellow white men

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with you guys?

Here's what you need to do. You need to stop going to Reddit and 4chan and 8chan and Stormfront. Fuck, you need to quit the internet altogether.

You've turned yourselves into monsters. I mean it. Every time you consume some piece of information that tells you how hard you have it compared to black people and Hispanics and women and whatnot, you lose a piece of your humanity. Do it often enough, and what's left isn't fit to associate with decent people. You're making yourselves worse, and you're making it worse for everyone around you.

You want to become human again? Go read a fucking book. I recommend James Baldwin, but even one of Asimov's old science essay collections would be better than the shit you're shoveling into your brains now.

Well... I am not a white man, but I give this post 5/5 stars.

Randy McDonald said...

I am, and likewise.

Fritz Knese said...

I am all for reading Asimov, but your concept that white guys should stop recognizing reality is BS. Like it or not, white men have made the world of today for the most part. We should not be apologizing to anyone for daring to be better.

Fritz Knese, the point of Mr. Pez's comment has gone entirely over your head. You aren't "recognizing reality" if you believe in a bunch of racist nonsense.

Johnny Pez said...

Thanks, Mia and Randy. And Tim, I'm afraid Fritz is a lost cause. As you say, the point went right over his head.
