Why Does Media Capitalize Black But Not White?

Post by BillT » Tue Apr 20, 2021 9:28 pm

On Yahoo, I've noticed that they'll continually capitalize black but not white. Talk about cowardice and pandering. That's just disgusting!!

If you follow the Associated Press rules, yes. They made that decision after the death of George Floyd and the subsequent riots.

Here is the full reasoning.

The great irony is that the decision was made because the word "evolved from a description of a person’s skin color to signify a race and culture, and deserves the uppercase treatment much the way other ethnic terms do," but doesn't that same logic apply to the word white, since it is often used in phrases such as white privilege, white guilt, and white supremacy?


And it's easy to tell the great pretenders—they've got the broken wings and the flip top fenders

So White people don't have a shared history or experience? It's just an excuse for the cowardice these executives have, and a way to prevent bricks being thrown thru their windows at their headquarters in New York or wherever they are located.

It's called divide and conquer, using a form of brainwashing through repetition.
The government needs to keep reminding us that we need to be fighting with each other over race, so we don't join together and take them out
