At least, I'm pretty sure the following is a snarky comment, and that it was written by a disgruntled white person. But sometimes with these things, I'm not sure.
What do you think?
In response to the last post here, Sams384 (who, if memory serves, has never commented here before) left this totally OT comment:
Stuff White People Do:
Take a music award that belongs to a black woman
Piss off black tennis players and take a point because they're black
White people are getting arrogantly racist these days and it sickens me how obvious they make it. Even when it is in front of cameras without stress.
Did you see how racist Taylor Swift's body language was when Kanye took the mic?
I suspect this comment is bait from a troll. Am I wrong?
For one thing, when Kanye took the mic, I saw no racism whatsoever in Taylor Swift's body language. I mean, give me a break -- what would that even look like?
Here's what I suspect: that Sams384 found a rather snide way to say that thing that white people often say, you know, something about "the race card," something about how "black people and those wimpy whites who support them will always find some way to cry racism. Even when black people are the ones who did something wrong!"
And so on.
I think some white folks out there are waiting, and searching, and ready to pounce on complaints about racism in such incidents as these two, just to "prove" their belief that those who point out racism these days are way, way too anxious to do so.
Some of those folks might even be leaving snarky comments on anti-racism blogs, hoping to provoke such "cries" of racism.
But then, maybe I'm reading too much into a comment that's actually nothing but sincere. As I said, sometimes with these things, I'm not sure.
