Teen Vogue: White People Aren’t Allowed To Post GIFs Of Black People

In a column published by Teen Vogue on Wednesdaya writer argues that if you are white and share a GIF of a black person, you are racist. Lauren Michele Jackson calls the act of sharing a reaction GIF of a black person “digital blackface.”

“Digital blackface does not describe intent, but an act — the act of inhabiting a black persona,” she writes. “Employing digital technology to co-opt a perceived cache or black cool, too, involves playacting blackness in a minstrel-like tradition.”

    Has Teen Vouge been hijacked by a competitor hoping to drive it into the ground?

    • I think so.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      It’s all part of The Narrative.

      • Shebel

        A distorted narrative.

        So whom is the Victim in revisionist History?

        Probably the ones that are being Attacked on a daily basis.

        Apparently, we are supposed to take our human rights abuses cues from 15-to-17-year-old girls now. They are so worldly and wise these days! They know everything.

        Oh wait! Everybody thought they knew everything when they were that age. Then they had to earn a living………

          My kids are just emerging from that phase.
          Without the help of Teen Vogue’s propaganda.
          I’d like to think that my ardent conservatism has shaped them as they step out of the chrysalis.

          • Shebel

            Not to worry. haha

            I am quite sure that your choice of music and lingo will make your kids- More than….
            Versatile.

      I think this is someone’s art project, but I still laugh every time I see it.
      I have no idea what it even means.

        Leftists bathing feet in goat seminal fluid?

      • Shebel

        To much Muslim homo milk?

        • Drunk by Noon

          Maybe, but there is some serious symbolism going on in that picture.
          Obviously she’s a Nazi, but why all the milk, the girl in the ski mask…

          • Shebel

            The milk is all White.
            The mask is White.
            The girls are White.
            The fluid in the injection vials is White.

            I dunno.

          I can’t read the Title.

        OMG, that IS funny bahaha

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        The milk thing started on /pol/ to troll people
        It became big when they showed up at the Shia LaBeouf “He will not divide us” camera drinking milk.

        /Pol/ regularly creates bogus symbols for white supremacy and
        releases them onto the internet to spread among liberals.

        The current one is making an “OK” symbol.

        • Drunk by Noon

          That milk Nazi picture predates the Shia LaBeouf episode by a lot. Maybe 5-years?
          The level of bats*hit insane at 4chan is something else.

    • vimy

      Damn I was gonna post that.

    • Shebel

      That,s OK you mouthy little shit.
      I have no intention of adopting your black ass.

  • They don’t allow comments on the Teen Vogue website so if anyone needs me I’ll be over at their Twitter page posting ‘Pool’s Closed Due To AIDS’ memes.

  • Malcolm Y

    I think the word they want is cachet (kashay) – a certain aura of sophistication, artistry etc not cache (cash) – a (secret) store of something. Retards.

    • Shebel

      Maybe , the next time , Muslims decide to kill a few of us.

      I will use this article—–
      All I have to do is change the Victims.

      Except— I won’t be Condemning Canadians , in general.

      I will be telling the TRUTH.

  • Shebel

    Here is an article , supposedly , condemning Islamophobia –and also brushes
    Canadians ,with a very broad brush.

    Amira Elghawaby

    Special to The Globe and Mail

    April 13, 2017 February 5, 2017

    Amira Elghawaby is the communications director at the National Council of Canadian Muslims

    “To the 17 boys and girls who have lost their fathers in a senseless act of hateful violence: I’m sorry Canadians failed you.

    Despite
    our best efforts to alert decision-makers that we feared the rise of
    Islamophobia in Canada, including in Quebec, it wasn’t enough to save
    your fathers.

    Despite
    all the information we have – the reports from Statistics Canada
    showing that hate crimes have doubled against Muslims in Canada and that
    Quebec has the most reported cases, we were not able to persuade enough
    people to do anything about it. Many of our police forces provide
    limited funding to their hate-crimes units, where they even have one.

    And
    somehow we couldn’t do enough when police told community
    representatives that a pig’s head thrown at the same mosque wasn’t
    considered a hate crime – because the perpetrator was depressed. Or that
    the torching of another mosque wasn’t a hate crime because the
    perpetrator was drunk. There, and elsewhere in our country, an alleged
    hate crime, or hate incident – like depositing dog feces at someone’s
    door – rarely even registers for front-line officers who tell those who
    even bother to call that, ‘sorry, there’s not much we can do.’ Too many
    go unreported and therefore remain invisible.

    Sure,
    there were dinners for dignitaries, meetings with mayors and premiers.
    Yet, when civil society made calls for a commission to review systemic
    racism in Quebec, there was no action. And yes, there were press
    conferences on Parliament Hill, calling on the federal government to do
    something about this form of racism that follows us onto public transit,
    into our workplaces, into our places of worship and even into our
    homes. Yet, none of that made a difference for your fathers.

    Some
    people did care, though. We launched a campaign in the province of
    Ontario with various partners, hoping that public-service ads would make
    people pause and “break their behaviour” as the current campaign is
    called. One ad shows a young boy in a classroom, about to make a joke
    about Muslims flying planes. A classmate stops him from saying the
    punchline.

    The other ad is the story
    of a family coming home to find the garage door of their home spray
    painted with the words, “Muslims go home.” This actually happened to a
    family in Kitscoty, Alta. last year.

    We
    have evidence that tells us that Canadian Muslim children like you are
    sometimes suffering in schools. We know that students can feel the
    burden of their religious identity. We know that parents are so busy
    providing the basics of life that it is too often difficult to help
    their children deal with the impact of being the ‘other’; too much of an
    unfair burden to expect the parents to constantly advocate that
    teachers be sensitive when talking about terrorism, or refugees, or
    freedom of speech. These conversations hurt if the negative examples are
    often of Muslims.

    We have the
    example of student lessons where “What is the Islamic State?” is the
    only reference to Islam that their classmates will likely ever be
    meaningfully exposed to. We have the responses from the publishers of
    such curricula telling us it’s not their responsibility to ensure that
    lessons referencing Islam and Muslims include something more accurate,
    let alone positive.

    We’ve
    launched lawsuits and human-rights complaints; we’ve challenged public
    officials and media personalities, companies and corporations,
    universities and school boards. These cases are often won, but quietly.
    Settlements often mean few will ever know about the shattered life
    dreams or the devastating toll on individuals and their families who
    have to struggle for years fighting for their human dignity.

    We
    challenged the media and governments to do better, to stop using the
    term Islamic State, for example, which hurts us every time we hear it.
    We asked that an Arabic acronym be used instead. Some people heard us,
    including the federal government. We made some difference there.

    What’s heartbreaking is that none of this was enough to save your fathers. And maybe nothing could have saved them.

    But please know this, my dear children: In memory of your beautiful papas, we will do better.

    Canada will do better – because we owe this to you.”

    An article like this Preaches more HATE and is more ‘Irritating’ than Muslims beheading people.

    If ,I didn’t know better—I would think that you want us to hate you.
    You are just Pushing us—as far as you can. .

    • Suz

      I’m speechless – how dare the author write such things. poor muslims, that’s all we hear. Go back then, geez!! I’m sick of this shi*t. This should be front page on blazingcatfur – more people need to be angered by these stupid editorials.

  • canminuteman

    Would they be happy if we went about our lives as if blacks didn’t exist? We don’t talk to them, we don’t do business with them, we don’t employ them, we don’t be friends with them, we don’t attend the same public spaces as them? Would that make them happy? Is that what they want?

    • Shebel

      I wasn’t speaking about Black Folk.

      I just posted here because nothing else fitted and the article pissed me off.
      Does it look like that ‘illustrious journalist’ was was accusing Black People ?

  • Alain

    The writer then is a racist and as usual tries projecting this on others.

  • Exile1981

    So i can no longer share crime videos?

  • Countermeasures_Dispenser

    Teen Vogue’s got a fever, and the only cure is: more anal.
