Count me in for the big muddle

I used to keep tabs on the more insidious forms of white supremacy, but it completely slipped my attention that Time Warner’s Teen People website briefly ran a loving article on white supremacist Olsen Twins look-alike music group Prussian Blue (not safe for work — there’s Nazzies in them thar websites).


I can’t believe that the words “white pride” triggered not a smidgeon of concern on the part of the editors. Tells you a thing or two about Teen People’s editorial board — so much for the media being controlled by ravening liberals.

Much has been made about one particular statement the blonde duo has made, which I quote:

“We’re proud of being white, we want to keep being white,” said Lynx. “We want our people to stay white … we don’t want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race.”

As Kwaku notes, you just have to imagine what they’ve learned at home to reason this way. ZOMG a black person! I shouldn’t get near him/her because I might get TEH BLACKNESS!

As for me, count me in for the Big Muddle. I figure the only way to preserve the human race is to mix until racism is impossible. I present for further reading a longer article on ABCNews and a fan blog — note in the latter references to Rudyard Kipling and the idea of the tabula rasa, which they reject. You gotta go pretty far back in the development of human knowledge to try to untangle and dispose of that particular belief…

    Being objective, there’s nothing worse about White Pride than Black Pride. Frankly, I find them both stupid.

    The concept of tabula rasa seems patently false to me (language study makes the idea seem rather impossible), but simplistic creatures of the species Homo sapiens sapiens (what a misnomer) feel some need to categorize people in the broadest categories possible, which does not make sense.

    In any case, I’ve already scored one for the big muddle. He just turned five.

    Sen! Good to hear from you. Happy birthday to your muddle (are you getting to see him these days?), and congrats on your new. She, I notice, apropos of nothing, is pretty much white ;)

    I saw the little mestizo a few times on webcam in December.

    Since you mention my new girlfriend, I think of the topic of the history of racism. She’s half-Sicilian, and for a time, I think they were considered non-white in this country. I’m quarter-Irish, and I know that the Irish were not “white” in the 19th century. Funky, no? Maybe someday Germans won’t be “white”, heh.
