Associated Press: White People, in General, Have Much Less Shared History and Culture

by Laura Steinberg

The Associated Press defended blatant racism on Monday, boldly proclaiming on their official news site, “white people in general have much less shared history and culture, and don’t have the experience of being discriminated against because of skin color.” To AP, White people don’t deserve a capital letter. They have been throwing their journalistic weight around in an exceptionally biased way in recent weeks with shameless anti-White censorship and propaganda. In the name of equality, even Blacks agree that if Black is capitalized, White should be too. AP disagrees and they’re making everyone else in the mainstream media sip their racist Kool-aid.

Associated Press:  whites don’t deserve a capital

In what amounts to a press release, the viciously liberal news outlet refers to themselves in third-person, proudly declaring, “[a]fter changing its usage rules last month to capitalize the word ‘Black” when used in the context of race and culture, The Associated Press on Monday said it would not do the same for ‘white.’” Dirty bleepards, White people mutter. “The AP said white people in general have much less shared history and culture, and don’t have the experience of being discriminated against because of skin color.” Yes. They really said that. Somebody needs to fact check that statement. AP gets carried away with the “False Information” censorship overlays in social media. They went as far as to recently censor an article about censorship.

Editors over at the progressive media giant were kicking around the best way to handle expressions of nasty White nationalism like “policing and Confederate symbols.” They admit they have a lot of influence on the entire industry. “The Associated Press, whose Stylebook is widely influential in the industry, announced June 19 it would make Black uppercase.” They had a big fight over what to do with the word White. They didn’t like what Blacks had to say, so overruled them. “The National Association of Black Journalists and some Black scholars have said white should be capitalized, too.”

Associated Press is an expert at censorship. When Juan Vidal wrote an article published in NPR that went viral on Twitter, on the subject of “Decolonizing your bookshelf,” Trending Right Wing took offense. Their article was immediately censored. TRW simply pointed out that censorship is censorship. NPR wants everyone to “decolonize your bookshelf” by “actively resisting and casting aside the colonialist ideas of narrative, storytelling, and literature that have pervaded the American psyche for so long.” They’re referring to books by White authors. TRW simply called it what it is, censorship. Whether you “cast aside” books by White authors in the trash or in a drawer it’s virtually the same as burning them. AP flagged the story anyway.

There go the lemmings

While they took the input from the Black community under consideration, ultimately it doesn’t fit in with their regular propaganda regarding open borders and the rest of the progressive New World Order agenda. John Daniszewski, the vice president for standards at Associated Press handed down the decision in a memo to staff. Capitalizing “the term white, as is done by white supremacists, risks subtly conveying legitimacy to such beliefs.” The rest of the lemmings jumped right off the racial cliff. “Columbia Journalism Review, the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, NBC News and Chicago Tribune are among the organizations that have recently said they would capitalize Black but have not done so for white.”

Conservative outlets, on the other hand, including “CNN, Fox News and The San Diego Union-Tribune,” pushed back. They all decided “they will give White the uppercase, noting it was consistent with Black, Asian, Latino and other ethnic groups.” Even Black citizens “believe that keeping White lowercase is actually anti-Black, saying it perpetuates the idea that Whites are the default race.” Associated Press will continue to discriminate anyway. At least for now. “We will closely watch how usage and thought evolves, and will periodically review our decision,” Daniszewski waffles.

Instead of healing the divide and having a rational discussion, Associated Press simply wants to throw more gasoline on the fire of racial disparity. We should be discussing ways of bringing a better understanding of the things we share in our cultures, rather than the differences between them. If AP was really interested in fairness they would listen to their own expert. They quoted Kwame Anthony Appiah as saying. “capitalizing white would take power away from racists, since their similar use ‘would no longer be a provocative defiance of the norm.’”
