    BuzzFeed faces backlash over racial piece covering ‘plague’ of white people

    BuzzFeed faces backlash over racial piece covering ‘plague’ of white people

    ‘This article is cancerous and so is your site, just like most media outlets’


    BuzzFeed came under fire from its own readers on Dec. 5, 2016, for publishing a racial article covering colonialism, “white privilege,” and the alleged “plague” of white people. (Buzzfeed screenshot) more >

    By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times - Wednesday, December 7, 2016

    A racially charged BuzzFeed article has attracted nearly 1.5 millions views in less than 48 hours — and a wave of backlash.

    BuzzFeed readers have blasted a listicle titled “19 School Powerpoint Presentations That Give Zero F****.” U.K.-based writer Hattie Soykan’s work on classroom slideshows includes a collection of images blaming a “plague” of white people for the world’s ills.

    Some of the presentations featured in the story include images that say “White people are a plague to the planet,” “How white people plagued society,” “White people are crazy,” and “White people are dangerous.”

    The writer’s work was one of BuzzFeed’s top trending stories as of Wednesday morning.

    “I’ve finally had it with this site,” wrote reader Jessica Plank on Monday. “Promoting racism, good job. This article is cancerous and so is your site, just like most media outlets. Doesn’t help anything, only makes the situation worse.”

    “White people are: 1) A Plague 2) Crazy 3) Dangerous,” added Jake Jenkins. “That would seem to make them inferior to others as a race. When people think one race is inferior to another they’re … there’s a word for that … umm … it’s at the tip of my tongue.”

    “Way to widen the gap between bigots and the black community. It adds fire to the flames,” added BuzzFeed reader Emily Booth.

    The story, which was covered by conservative news outlets The Daily Caller and The Blaze, is reminiscent of a November tweet by Hollywood actor Lena Dunham. The HBO “Girls” star and her father Carroll celebrated the “extinction of white men” in an animated video released Nov. 2.

    “White men are a problem. Straight white men are a big problem, that’s for sure. But I actually feel pretty good about it. I think straight white guys have been screwing things up for long enough,” Mr. Dunham said.That’s my dad!” the actor said as the two laughed.

    Buzzfeed: White People Are A ‘Plague To The Planet’

    Buzzfeed published a listicle Monday containing insulting and racist messages toward white people.

    The listicle, entitled, “19 School Powerpoint Presentations That Give Zero ****s,” is a list of students giving presentations. Many of the presentations include insulting and hateful messages towards whites, such as, “White People Are a Plague to the Planet,” “How White People Plagued Society,” and “White People Are Crazy.”

    An image featured on the list shows a young woman with the presentations, “White People Stay Colonizing,” while wearing a T-shirt that reads:


    Another picture showed a woman with a shirt that reads “Check Your Privilege” standing in front of a screen displaying a mug labeled “White Tears.”


    One student gave a presentation that contained a slide reading, “Diversity is a myth. You’re probably racist.”This list comes a week after Buzzfeed tried to smear a popular TV show couple for their pastor’s stance on gay marriage. A few days ago, a Buzzfeed editor posted the private phone number of a conservative TV show producer on Twitter, which the target felt was an incitement to harassment.

    They should not allow sites to post this racist garbage. This whole racism Black Live Matters crap is getting way out of hand. Racism has never been worse in this country. No one race is better than another get over it.
    Freedom isn't free... Don't forget the men who died and gave that right to all of us....
