I would like to thank the kind people who have donated to We Are Respectable Negroes' annual fundraising drive. Your generosity is so very much appreciated and welcome. It really does encourage me forward in my writing here and elsewhere.
There is no such thing as bad press--to borrow from that cliche and truism. I have been lovingly mentioned by white supremacist websites on more than a few occasions. I also enjoy their literate and inspired hate mail. I use it as a model for my "fun with yellow journalism" essays.
Some of our white supremacist--they call themselves "race realists"--friends at Mindweapons in Ragnarok were kind enough to show their displeasure towards my post in support of Professor Shannon Gibney and how neoliberalism is using white supremacy to destroy academic freedom while also reshaping American society to the further advantage of the 1%.
Mindweapons in Ragnarok appear to be oblivious to how the global power elite are using the white working class, and ginning up white racial resentment (and likely mobilizing white supremacists and the White Right) against people of color, to advance the former's hold on power and their efforts to further redistribute it upwards to them.
I am a self-interested agent. I love a bit of irony in my trouble-making too. I think it would be great fun if fans of WARN (and those who just like to mock white supremacists more generally) would throw some change into our annual fundraiser and then post a thank you note or quick comment to that end on the website Mindweapons in Ragnarok.
