    About

    Fellow White People, also known as (((dear white people))) or “Fellow Whites”, is a meme used to mock Jews who participated in this strange phenomenon where Jews pretend to be white to serve their political purposes. In contrast to Jewish Hoaxes where Jews hide their identities to blame a faceless entity, Fellow Whites are Jews who proudly pass off their identity as white.

    In the current political climate(2014-2017) it is very disadvantageous to be white as all whites are seen as racists, nazis, and KKK due to the overwhelming liberal dominance in media. Pop star celebrities such as Lorde have shown their white guilt and disdain for fellow whites.

    Origin

    This meme has been referenced very often in history. The earliest recorded encounters were almost everywhere in western civilization from Nazi Germany to Ancient Rome.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    ― Marcus Tullius Cicero



    Spread

    As politics continues to polarize, people have been noticing certain patterns in mainstream liberal agendas. The dominant voices seem to be Jewish.

    One of the best ways to call them out was to use the Jewish spinoff of How do you do fellow kids.

    Overview

    Jemele Hill Trump Comments Controversy refers to the discussion surrounding ESPN reporter Jemele Hill, who tweeted that President Donald Trump was “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.” The comment angered conservatives, including the White House, who called for Hill’s firing. The left, meanwhile, rallied around her.

    Background

    On September 11th, 2017, Hill, in a thread with three others, tweeted “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”[1] The comment came after Hill criticized Kid Rock for “pandering to racists” by using the Confederate Flag.[2]



    Developments

    Immediately, Hill caught flack for her comments from conservatives. Breitbart[3] argued that this was a statement that would lead to the firing of known conservative ESPN personalities like Mike Ditka, Curt Schilling, Craig James had they said something similar about Barack Obama. On September 12th, ESPN PR[6] tweeted a statement on Hill that stated Hill “knew her actions were inappropriate” and “did not represent the views of ESPN.”



    However, many in the sports world, including several ESPN colleagues, rallied around Hill. ESPN analyst Heath Evans, though conservative, tweeted a video offering his support of Hill, claiming those criticizing her were judging her by a double standard (shown below). Several other colleagues stood with Hill,[4] including controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick.


    On September 13th, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to a question about the comments by saying she believed it was a “fireable offense.” Sports Illustrated writer Charles Pierce called Sanders’ comments “A Trip to Edges of Crazytown.”[5]“This is the official spokesperson of the President of the United States calling upon a television network to fire one of its highest profile employees because she was mean to the president online,” Pierce wrote.



    On the evening of September 13th, Hill tweeted saying that while she stands by her personal beliefs, she regretted painting ESPN in a negative light.[7]

  • 09/14/17--12:36: Bodega Startup Controversy
  • Overview

    Bodega Startup Controversy refers to the discussion surrounding a startup vending machine company called Bodega that will stock items popularly found in corner stores, known as “bodegas” in Los Angeles and New York City. This was perceived negatively online, as people saw the startup as a threat to bodegas and corner stores which are considered urban cultural institutions.

    Background

    On September 13th, 2017, Bodega was profiled by Fast Company in an article titled “Two Ex-Googlers Want To Make Bodegas And Mom-And-Pop Corner Stores Obsolete.”[1] The profile highlights the potential convenience of the product. For example, the machine will use AI to decide which items to stock based on the community of people who use it. Fast Company also addresses concerns that it will put immigrants out of business.

    The major downside to this concept–should it take off–is that it would put a lot of mom-and-pop stores out of business. In fact, replacing that beloved institution seems explicit in the very name of McDonald’s venture, a Spanish term synonymous with the tiny stores that dot urban landscapes and are commonly run by people originally from Latin America or Asia. Some might bristle at the idea of a Silicon Valley executive appropriating the term “bodega” for a project that could well put lots of immigrants out of work. (One of my coworkers even referred to it as “Bro-dega” to illustrate the disconnect.)

    Developments

    The idea that Bodega would kill “mom-and-pop stores” was immediately met with backlash on Twitter. Twitter user @CushKobain[2] tweeted an image from the film Get Out illustrating how the startup was a tool of gentrification, gaining over 2,100 retweets (shown below, left).
