We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Well, it's a good day for pregnant women and gay men. To be clear, I'm not 'happy' he's dead nor am I celebrating his death. In fact, I feel pretty indifferent to the whole thing. But I feel sorry for victims who will never get their day of justice in court.
The reason why people call him a white supremacist is because he uses the same rhetoric and talking points as them (black people are inherently violent and have a "warrior gene," black people have a victim mentality, colorism isn't real, if black people don't want to be discriminated against then they should stop commiting crimes etc.) If he wasn't Japanese, he could fit right in with Richard Spencer and David Duke. Even a lot of white supremacists who want an ethno-state via killing and deporting all non-whites will make exceptions for asians. It's suprising how many white supremacists have an asian fetish/asian gf. There's another branch of white supremacists who are white nationalists who want to deport and kill anyone who isn't for the "white cause" whatever the fuck that means, and you can bet Nobita would be accepted into a white nationalist society.
I was honestly making a response to this video but I stopped just shy of 4 minutes into the video because of how stupid this video is. I seriously recommend watching Contrapoint's video on racism in America. She goes over a lot of the points Nobita makes. I'm just going to go over some of the stuff he says. Nobita talks about protesting and how that leads to violence. I'm guessing that Nobita holds the opinion that protesting is bad because possible crimes can be committed? Nobita, Martin Luther King Jr was literally arrested for protesting. Rosa Parks was commiting a crime by getting on that bus. Does that now discredit everything they stand for because they've committed a crime? How do you think we've gotten to a point of equality in the law? Because it certainly wasn't the status quo deciding to give up power. Why would the status quo give up power when there's no opposition protesting. Nobita also makes the point, somewhere around 4 minutes, that every issue in the black community is caused by the black community because there's no Jim Crow or slavery. I just..... Because of Jim Crow, black people missed out on job opportunities they might have had if they were any other race. Being black under Jim Crow meant shittier jobs. Shittier jobs meant less pay. Wealth gets passed on from generation to generation. Once you're in this cycle, it's extremely hard to get out. When you look at statistics, it's very rare for someone to go from very broke to very rich. Usually most people stay around the same class. People are very heavily influenced by their society, and when you haven't been given support by teachers or parents to go into higher education, then it's hard to do it on your own. You rarely see someone who is a gangster most of their teens suddenly decide to go into law school when no one in their environment has supported them and given them those opportunities to get into higher education before. I'm rambling a bit, but you get my point. People are heavily, heavily influenced by their enviroment and it's hard to get out of a cycle you've been born into. He also shows a picture with the words "affirmative action." I'm guessing he thinks this is a bad thing? Nobita, affirmative action is meant to help people who don't have the same opportunities as more privileged, wealthier people. It's meant to give the disenfranchised an opportunity to eduaction. Also, it helps mostly white women anyway. If you've done a second of research you would have realized that. Also, he cites fucking Breitbart in the description. What a fucking joke. Edit; I watched a bit further into the video and he's worried about brown people coming to his precious ethnostate because crime MIGHT increase. What stupid point. Do you really think that people who are stuck in the cycle of poverity are going over to your precious Japan JUST to commit crimes? God, this is so stupid. Technically, non-zero percentage of EVERY race commits crimes, should that justify banning all foreigners to Japan? Although, this is Nobita were talking about and it's well documented that he's only scared of brown people. Let's face it, Nobita is a racist and the only reason he made this video is because he's afraid of brown people.
I know someone already posted the link to the video but I just wanted to respond to it and I don't know where else to vent my frustration. Also, I'm not black but I'll still respond to these questions. 1. Why Are You So Obessed With The Past? Because it still has it's effects. You only mention slaverly as the oppression that black peoole have faced, maybe do your fucking research before making dumb comments on the internet. I know you've probably just watched 3 videos by Sargon so now you believe your qualified enough to debate the sjw's, but this is pathetic. Jim Crow laws only went out in 1965. There are still black people alive today that lived through that. Even the young black people who didn't live through that era still feel the effects of Jim Crow. Why? Because of generational wealth. Money gets passed down generation to generation, but black people have been significantly disadvantaged when it comes to jobs and even today struggle to get hired (see "Are Emily and Craig More Employable Than Lakisha and Jamal." This research shows that people with stereotypical 'black' sounding names are discriminated against by employers.) This is why people are "obsessed with the past" because it still effects them. You also mention that more black people coming to Japan would be a problem because of their "victim mentality." Oh, I'm sorry. Maybe if people, like you, were less xenophobic then they wouldn't have air their grievances about xenophobia. Did you ever think about that? 2. Why do you avoid facing the fact? Here he brings in the FBI statistics and this is where we get into the victim blaming territory. You see him racialize the whole "you were asking for it" agruement but instead says "well if you don't want to be discriminated against then don't commit crime." Fuck, this is so stupid. Black people have a significantly higher rate of single mothers, which has shown to have effects on the likelihood of their child commiting crime. In the U.S, houses near the school fund the school with their taxes. If you live in a poor neighbourhood, then your school has less money. If your school has less money, then they have less money to spend on programs. You see where I'm going with this? To put all of the blame on black people rather than their enviroment is so ignorant and dangerous, it's terrifying that this man even has an audience. He boils down to "well if you didn't want to be discriminated against then don't commit crime." You're Asian, there are negitive stereotypes against you that I could use to justify discrimination against Asians, but I won't because I'm not a fucking racist like some people. Also, men commit 99% of rape, is it now justified for me to despise men because of stereotypes and statistics? Another thing, because you're going to bring up violence again in your next point. White supremacists commit 74% of politcally motivated murder. Since 1990, 54 cops have been killed by white supremacists. In that same amount of time, 11 cops have been killed by radical leftists and in 2017 exactly 0 cops were killed by radical leftists. Fuck off. 3. Why do you threaten someone who disagrees with you? I don't. To end this on a good note and to restore your faith in humanity, here are Trump supporters and Antifa teaming up to kick out white supremacists. After they get kicked, you see them freaking out and whining like toddlers. It's pretty funny.
Maybe I'm in sort of a unique position but I actually heard of Aoora years before I even knew who Edward was. Aoora's music wasn't great but I liked Body Talk. He stood out a lot because of his weird, overtly sexual concepts and, even though I wasn't a huge fan of his music, I enjoyed watching his MV's because of how weird they were. Then his management wanted to turn him into more of an "idol" (Edward mentioned this in a video before but I can't be fucked to go and find it) and he shortly befriended Edward after he abandoned his weird, sexual concept to be an idol. It's dissapointing to see him be friends with someone as shitty as Edward.
https://kpopalypse.com/2017/12/31/kpopalypses-30-worst-k-pop-songs-of-2017/ This might not be interesting to non-kpop fans but Eddy and Aoora get mentioned here (scroll down to #7 if you can't be fucked to read the entire list.) Edward is featured in the song so he mentions his video on Kyla in his review of "Slay" and I thought it was interesting so I'm leaving it here: "Speaking of things nobody sane wants to listen to, it was only when I was compiling this list that I noticed that horrible babbling pseudo-rap of nothingness and recognised that the voice of “Will” in this video is actually v-logger Edward Avila, this is the guy who is a big believer in Korea’s beauty standards being absolutely a-ok and is pretty quick to use his platform to exert public pressure on underage people who are already medically slightly underweight into losing even more weight to fit into those standards. The people who were blown away when Melanie from Chocolat revealed that when her agency found out she was self-harming they didn’t really give a crap and basically said to her “suck it up buttercup”, well it’s people like Edward who make that attitude possible by publicly normalising the industry’s insane boot-camp bullshit. Everyone likes to complain about me being “bad” for whatever reason because I say the odd rude word and tell naughty jokes, those people probably have no problem at all with this guy who is actually setting an example that ruins lives by helping young and naive people unconditionally accept the worst parts of a system that is designed to entrap them and bleed them dry with complete disregard for their physical and mental health. I guess he doesn’t care about any of that as long as he gets a little bit of fame and click-money. Yes he is being realistic, but that’s not the point – we both see the reality of how things are, the difference is that I criticise it and try to shine a light on it so it can be scrutinised (and hopefully one day improved) whereas he thinks it’s all just fucking fine and dandy. Anyway, aside from being an obviously morally bankrupt shitty person (and this is coming from me of all people), he doesn’t add anything of value to an already shit song, mind you he doesn’t make it that much worse either as it was already at the bottom of the barrel of this type of post-yolo nonsense. I suppose if Edward has to be in a k-pop song it might as well be one that sucks anyway, so at least it’s not like he’s ruining anything of value. Imagine the damage he could do if he ever gets onto a song that is actually good."
-K-Hiphop is such shit. Dean, who is hyped up as the "prince" of r&b, is absolutely incompetent musically. -Sulli did nothing wrong. -Rookie is Red Velvet's best song. -Knock Knock and Signal are Twice's best songs -Can we please stop giving Keith Ape attention in 2018 -BTS hasn't released a decent song in years.
