The Huffington Post: Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise? (Right To Vote)

『Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.

If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.

…Some may argue that this is unfair. Let’s be clear, it may be unfair, but a moratorium on the franchise for white males for a period of between 20 and 30 years is a small price to pay for the pain inflicted by white males on others, particularly those with black, female-identifying bodies. In addition, white men should not be stripped of their other rights, and this withholding of the franchise should only be a temporary measure, as the world rights the wrongs of the past.

A withholding of the franchise from white males, along with the passing of legislation in this period to redistribute some of their assets, will also, to a degree, act as the reparations for slavery, colonialism, and apartheid, which the world is crying out for to be paid.

…Although this may seem unfair and unjust, allowing white males to continue to call the shots politically and economically, following their actions over the past 500 years, is the greater injustice.』

In an ideal world, I agree the issue of racism is one I would prefer simply went away, but in reality when only a single one-sided point of view about racism continues to be unrelentingly shoved in a particular group's face regarding how they are supposedly the root cause for most of the great ills and evils in the world, it becomes a matter of import to at least give some voice to that group from their own perspective on the matter.

The issue is, over time that group is increasingly not allowed to have a voice on the topic.

Indeed, some groups would seem to be more free in their speech than others.

If people dont create an ideal world that is fair and non discriminatory for everyone , it would lead to the paths of its own destruction. There are two realities, a dystopian one and a utopian one, and the reality is we all in the paradox, that is in the middle between two realities, and it is shifting away from a utopian one to a dystopian one, unless people realise and make the shift to a utopian one.

I just sit and wonder why people on this planet would shove science for ideologies and racial psuedoscience to justify their racism. Being born in a country where apartheid was law hives me the shivers that the planet as a whole is moving towards a dystopian planet-wide apartheid law, that keeps people separated and distracted from reality with a fake reality.

Education, travel and meeting people from different ethnic cultures and backgrounds narrows the ignorance and racial prejudices and stupidity. Thats why the ruling elite want to make travel experience across the planet less accessible with enforced emphasis on borders and keeping people landlocked to a specific country.


I can see why my star mother seeded me to be born in an apartheid country at the time, because she saw this horrible future. But she did not give me any super powers to fix it,

It has nothing to do with brainwashing, in fact, the only people that are brainwashed are the people that seem to think there is nothing and absolutely nothing that seperates us, as they are the most likely to react violently to such ideas. Trump and Brexit had nothing to do with this, absolutely nothing. The EU is crumbling because its member states are undergoing a significant decrease in sovereignity, while Trump happened because a certain democrat seized the nomination for herself instead of playing fair. Racial segregation doesn't exist in the west, I said it and I mean it, it's made up like the bogeyman. Divide and conquer is what our enemies are doing, which we have to react firmly upon as they don't have our best interest at heart.

What ? human beings are human beings regardless of the number of melanin you have in your skin, and where on the planet your ethnics come from, for they all originated from the same source when the extraterrestrials bioengineered them from the the original seeds of life via assisted evolution to that of a primate, with DNA of their own added in the mix to create human beings. There is nothing that separates earth people, as they originate and related to the same source, including that they are also related to the plants and animals that exist around them.

Nothing separates human beings from each other except for when they possess stupidity, illusions, delusions of politics, selfishness, greed, and so on. The sovereignty is humanity, not a piece of planet you are forced to remain on and live on bound by documentation, imaginary borders and boundaries, A human capital farm created by the rich bastards who believe that they own everyone and the planet they destroy that nurtured them as a mother. .

I was gonna correct you but it seems you've already done it yourself.
Your entire second paragraph is what I meant.

hmm I see, thank you.
