It was recently brought to my attention that London’s “walking and cycling commissioner” stated that cycling was “too white” and was Deeply Concerned about the lack of gender and racial diversity among operators of two-wheeled pedal-powered conveyances. Actual diversity quotas are seriously being considered to address the glaring absence of women, Muslims and people of color on bicycles. This was the final spoke for me, and although I’ll briefly focus on this particular example, the trend of noticing white people doing a thing and then calling it racist is built on a mile high foundation of bullshit opinion pieces.
Whites are the only group you can interrogate and scrutinize when you observe “too many of them” enjoying themselves.
The basic theory is, if more than two white folk are engaged in some kind of hobby, it’s in dire need of diversity and the simple presence of Caucasoid Numerical Superiority will scare all the people of color away. We could probably critique the strange phenomena of implicit racial bias towards white people going completely unremarked, as if it’s just natural to fear the all Aryan bowling league. Clearly if we were talking about white people feeling intimidated by a large presence of blacks, that would imply RACISM, but the converse is never true.
In the case of the “MAMIL menace“, in which cycling is dominated by white Middle Aged Men In Lycra, policy makers are scratching their heads as if the ethnic homogeneity is evidence of some vast racist conspiracy. It makes me wonder if these idiots really believe that there are violent skinhead cyclist gangs silently cruising on their overpriced carbon fiber roadbikes and looking for negros to beat up with their bicycle pumps. Is the Tour de France full of Nazis? Are we really supposed to believe that women and minority groups are somehow intimidated by gangly cardio-fags wearing skintight lycra? Is #MeToo going to hit the cycling world?
This isn’t a new phenomenon. Just try a little experiment and type any random activity into Google followed by the phrase “too white” or “unbearable whiteness” and observe the frantic hand-wringing over how every facet of life suffers from an inundation of demelinated colonizers. Wistful introspection and navel gazing commences the very instant someone observes a proportionately appropriate number of honkies engaged in virtually any sort of enterprise. Can’t go running, work as a librarian, play video games, or swing a fucking tennis racket without the Social Justice Inquisition dissecting you for racism. The levels of absurdity reached by this analysis reach the level of self-parody, like this introspection on the white supremacist implications of the color white itself.
Notice the phrase “unbearably white” is an obvious pejorative slur and ask if any other group is intentionally shamed in this fashion.
Excepting the one (((obvious))) counter-example of a non-white group being scrutinized for over-representation, you can’t even get a fair analysis of something that the most braindead normie would immediately think of: Yes, the NBA has too many blacks, but this is actually an example of structural racism and reinforces the idea that pavement apes are too stupid to work white collar jobs. Ya see, the evil white man convinces young impressionable bleks that their best bet on future success is to become Lebron James instead of Steve Jobs, thereby preserving all that sweet Google retirement money for greedy Caucasians. Over-representation addressed, anti-white narrative intact.
I think some of this phenomena is just the logical corollary of assuming that white people do not have a culture, completely invalidating the concept whites could have ever have distinct pursuits in the first place. It’s all just a blatant delegitimization of an entire class of people, which, according to their very own sociological theory is the first thing someone does to a suspect class before brutally oppressing them. Despite bicycles originating in Europe and professional bike racing evolving as a pursuit of white European men, this is not in any way perceived as a natural past-time for that ethnic group in the same way that jazz music and fatally shooting people over their Jordans is widely accepted as authentic black culture. Apparently, if a white person is engaged in an activity, they are at best functioning as a placeholder until a more worthy group comes along and at worst are actively blocking the POCs entitled to their hobbies.
This is what blatant anti-white propaganda looks like. It’s real, it’s harmful and social elites are consciously trying to delegitimize whiteness. They’re effectively denying whites any avenue for personal satisfaction that isn’t constantly punctured with self-conscious guilt over how they’re excluding a more virtuous minority and we need to call them the fuck out everytime it happens.
