son + QBN = cognitive dissonance
Those who say very little will always be labeled as crazy. An intelligent person will always quickly be pegged “dumb” by a group if they disagree with the majority and even take a stance that is opposite the groups beliefs;
I liken it to white ppl using the term "ghetto" as a pejorative to describe something that is deplorable, taking the word out of context and using it in a manner that is ill-intended subconsciously or consciously. These labels are ableist, boring, and reveals the incapacity to intelligently evaluate the situation, or subjects they speak of.
I’ve seen various QBN users spew racism here (throughout the years) that still hold accounts. Users who have used words that if they came to my communities and started spewing, they would be severely injured. And so QBN has made a “safe-space” for those who want to, to play upon the PTSD and terrorize the oppressed (Black people in particular) for laughs and high-fives.
There are some awesome members who create great threads and foster growth here. I’ve participated in career posts, posted funny gifs, shared jokes & stories, even made a couple connections off-line
After this wrongful account suspension, it’s clear that I do not belong here.

a black guy posts anti-jew shit while calling white people monkeys and cavemen frequently and at inappropriate times is cool, but white people use humor no worse than what you'd see on south park and everyone loses their minds
I've enjoyed having you around old bean, no need to leave...
I'm oblivious to the son shit, literally, never even went into the thread.
i was already confused then scarabin confused me even more...
he's suggesting that QBN is racist, and as a black man cannot abide. thus he is leaving.
the racism thing is probably directed at me, for having played my part in the event that led to son being banned. because son was black i am racist. in said event, i called him out for posting anti-jew material he copied and pasted from somewhere as his worldview and for constantly calling other races cavemen and monkeys. i found his behavior stepping waaaay over friendly joking territory onto hateful ground. someone noticed and banned him.
Sure, there might have been some racist people here, but I would say that most of what's said is done as pure sarcasm most of the time. Most of the posts you labeled racist were actually making fun of how stupid racism is in the first place.
Then, from my perspective, son came in and started putting a race spin on every fucking thing. It wasn't a joke to him, he was serious. He started saying people were racist when they weren't, and he wouldn't budge on his point of view. I didn't think you would get this serious ohhhhhsnap, you never make fun of race, it's always a serious issue with you.
Oh wait... what's up with your username? That's not a black stereotype or anything. It's almost like you think you can make fun of it but nobody else can. Get over it.
Son's posts never bothered me personally, I took everything he said with agrain of salt and it was quite amusing at times, but if we look at it from the other side it would be like a white member posting KKK images and confederate flags and white supremacy, Nazi and eugenics doctrine
- If you study history you read those things, doesnt mean you agree with everything. bothered by horrors of humanity?yurimon
- Last question came out wrong typed to fast...yurimon
- the horrors of humanity don't bother me, unless they are used to threaten, intimidate and belittle others._niko
- yuri, you know as well as we do son believed everything he postedscarabin
- this wasn't a case of him "just studying". it was an attempt to support his racist beliefs with ridiculous bullshit from bad sourcesscarabin
this has always been the way.
Just that in the old days, you could come back and make a new account!
Firstly, I have not seen the posts Snap is talking about because I tend to avoid things I'm not wanting to get involved in on here. So, I don't want to really speak on something I'm not educated on like an idiot...but
If someone is being racist like that on here its a shame they have been made to feel like their ignorance is welcome here. Considering that this place does not seem to have any moderators anymore we should probably take it upon ourselves to put people right when we see such behaviour more. Otherwise this place will go to shit and the good people will leave.
Its pretty clear most of the casual 'sarcastic' racism comes from the US contingent. Why is that?
- the rest are too busy hating on americansscarabin
- stupid comment of the day goes to fadein11. you seem to win a lot of these though, so make room on your trophy shelf.lvl_13
- shelf, you sad little man.lvl_13
- just an observation on this site - and actually quite accurate you fucking knobend.fadein11

- because America is steeped in racism still, and we aren't working very hard at dispellign a single stereotypemonospaced
- was talking about this site you dipshit monofadein11
Was a classic piece of satire. It held up to us a mirror of our collective prejudice when viewing a partially obscured painting of a perhaps oriental woman. Can't believe anyone read it any other way.
Was simply performance art, a stinging critique of contemporary media and it's audacious duplicity in posting actual photos of women.

Actually, it's a metaphor. It's used that way because ghettos are historically underserved shithole neighborhoods, and works great as an adjective.

Yeah, I don't see that. Nobody is getting "terrorized", for lack of better hyperbole. If anything, you get the long-winded rationalizations on why "privileged" races aren't allowed to talk about things to protect or respect X,Y or Z sensibilities. Thankfully, it is the internet, so you get to have all sides of the conversation play out without some neighborhood half-wit getting handsey.
And as for Son, nothing he said or posted could be construed as intelligent, or even communicated properly. The page long cut and paste diatribes were overcomplicated nonsense paraded out as alternative intellectualism.

Been away 4 days and a lots happened, can someone summarise the Son and Utopian issues for me please?
yes, me too, I totally missed this as I was a week away in this social art project.
was utopian also banned?
was it really so serious?
thanks for the updates!
Removes Ghettoblaster from vocabulary to assure I'm not offending anyone...sigh...
kids use to call me Mr. Dread.
Boggles my mind that a handful of people are defending him here.
DO NOT call me a caveman! I repeat DO NOT
Sometimes I hate that I still feel like an outsider here desipite being a member for (holy shit) 15 years (pre-QBN), and other times, like this, I'm glad I have no idea what's going on.
