https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2018/08/04/new-york-times-new-writer-sarah-jeong-anti-white-tweets-ctn-vpx.cnn

Interesting panel put together by Don Lemon. I'm not buying the kid gloves treatment about her trying desperately and failing to be funny. I have yet to see Ted Lieu tweet about how he served active duty for her right to make racist statements. Have not heard anything from Roland about her being "absolute evil", either.

It's pretty sick how one of the panelists actually has a racist definition of racism. She touts the extremist line that racism is "prejudice plus power", rather than the mainstream definition that race is a fundamental or strong determinant of individual characteristics. It lets her be as racist as she wants and claim she can't be racist. "I can't be racist because of my race". And war is peace...sure. I wonder what she would say about the situation in S. Africa. Probably some contorted, funhouse mirror hatesplaining about 'insitutions' and boiling white children alive for being white isn't actually racism. The hard part, for me, is trying to determine if she actually believes the ignorance she's vomiting or if deep down she knows it's a bunch of bigotry.

Candace Owens tweeted some of Jeong's tweets verbatim, replacing 'white' with black or Jewish. Her account was locked immediately. I guess it goes to show: a double standard isn't a standard at all.

How do you feel about Jeong's tweets? If you're white, how do you feel about the NYT standing behind her calls for your genocide?

It is one thing to criticize her for the things she said, but calling her statements genocidal seems to be so extreme as to dip into self-parody. If you actually wish to have a discussion, try to start from somewhere a little closer to a moderate position instead of going out of your way to be as extreme as possible. I agree with some of the things you are saying but by presenting your opinion in such an extreme fashion, you are making me instead focus on arguing against you instead of agreeing with you. Who does that benefit?

I could see that being my reasoning if I agreed with eliminating white people.

I missed the part where calling for white people to be eliminated, delighting in their misery, and getting giddy at their genocide constituted NotGenocidal.

Maybe "Cancel White People" actually is code for "White pride worldwide"?

Alt-righters? I'm pretty sure there are no "alt-righters" on this forum.

Well, in a twisted, hateful kind of way it DOES make sense --much in the same way that Symone Sanders has a definition of racism that lets her be racist while pretending to not be incapable of racism. Remember that for a lot of bigots, just being white makes you a racist, in an Original Sin kind of way

Maybe that would be a sound interpretation if you were a blind literalist, but it should be clear that #CancelWhitePeople doesn't mean.... I mean, what? What do you actually think that means? Do you think that this woman is literally calling for white people to be cancelled (whatever that means)? Say that it denotes prejudice all you want, but calling for genocide? Please...

I dunno. Maybe we should CancelJews instead then? Oh wait, that gets us banned for racial hatred...

You must think I'm really stupid that you think I'm going to buy that. Cancel the thought.

Were I to take the same literal interpretation to your post as you seem to be taking, I could make an argument that you are pushing for physically attacking me (or perhaps lobotomizing me or putting me through some kind of reeducation process) until I am physically unable to create that thought.

But nobody would think that, because people are not machines and they (generally) understand how language works.

From my research I have determined that she was only throwing the hate she receives back towards the people who hated her for her Asian ancestory... to how should I put it... make white people feel the harassment that she feels as a Asian american? I can understand her frustration and I doubt that she actually hates most white people

Yeah that's what the racists are saying to justify it.

If you actually read her tweets, though, it becomes apparent that's bullshit. It's like screaming, for years, that Jews belong in ovens and then saying "Just kidding" and pretending that makes it all OK.

"Gas the Jews".

What do you think that means? Don't you think it's a bit extreme to take that as a call to genocide?
