Basically someone showed him something like:

And he took it to be a shining beacon of hypocrisy that it is not decried as incredibly racist


Oh and he blamed the evil media out to get him, like all youtubers do these days.

Again, can't see the video right now, but is it possible that he means that he was misconstrued as in he's actually more racist than people think he is?

Yeah there's no misconstruing him saying things like rich blacks commit more crimes than poor whites.

no, they are

they are not calling him scum of the earth because of his genetics, they are calling him scum of the earth because of his words and deeds.

seriously, calling out people's shitty behaviour is not the same as being racist.

This is probably not going to help him.

Of course not. White people are only a unified "race" when contrasted against everyone else. I get the feeling he doesn't even realize that, hence his persistent befuddlement as he wades into these topics.

Bullshit. If someone is being a racist and gets called on it, the person calling them on it is not just as bad. That kind of bullshit false equivalency is what the alt-right thrives on.

Yeah, but that's exactly what they want. All this "politically neutral" shit in the face of trump just means they support trump but don't want to admit it. He's 100% for trump, the racism should make that clear enough.

So what does he really think, because this video is just a reaffirmation of all the shit he spewed. Also invoking context is such a tired deflection strategy. You were quoted verbatim and the context in which you made the statements were given. It was still appalling .

seriously, calling out people's shitty behaviour is not the same as being racist.

Some people see things as black and white only, meaning there's criticizing and praising, bad and good, and nothing else inbetween. No other form of it, just one or the other.

The word racist has become such a scary thing for the white man that he needs more protection then the people he calls hateful slurs.

Yeah no, calling a racist or person saying racist things terrible or scum is not the same as saying

"America will turn into Mexico if we're not careful"

"Ramble ramble ramble AFRICA ramble ramble ramble"

"Police force ramble Somalia doesn't have a police force"

"Rich black people commit crimes more than poor whites, look it up"

"Blacks commit more crime, why? IDGAF"

That's not at all what I said but OK. Hate breeds hate, even if it's in different forms.

While I do think he was a little unapologetic, I don't feel he should be crucified or anything. Nor do I think he should be simply forgiven.

But let's not build people up to start sending death threats.

I don't want to cause any troubles here, so I'll remove myself from the thread.
