    Is it racist for a white man on RealJock to portray himself as a black man in a fake profile and comment in threads on race relations?


    Just wondering. Discuss.

    It's just a hypothetical, of course, but would posting on race as if you were coming from an experience of a racial minority when you were actually not be hypocritical?

    Depends if you're a pilot but you're impersonating a chef. Wouldn't you agree that is pertinent information?

    That might be, but it could also depend on if you once had a profile here where your main pic was sitting at a table holding a fork while dining and the main pic of your fake profile is sitting a table holding a fork while dining.

    I see where you are going with this!

    If you consider the variables..
    ..What would motivate someone to do that? With a fake profile you could be anything or anyone..

    ..I guess the idea of posing as a person of another race and then posting fake experiences would mean..Mockery..
    So it would be racist huh?

    I'll take Racist or totally f*cked up for $100 Alex!

    I must reiterate that this thread is just a hypothetical, but these forums are open discussion, so I also have no control of where the discussion may lead.

    If you hired a chef it would be a lot easier than having to do your own cooking.

    And hypothetically speaking, no gay man lives in a particular famous zip code. Even if he did, he would never admit it.

    So hypothetically, Iceblink is on to something with his hypothesis.

    If you had proof that it's a fake profile you could get him banned. It's not as if someone could just make a brand new profile after a previous one was banned.

    Here's my thinking:

    If he pretended to be black so he could attack other blacks without being labeled a typical white racist, yes that would be racist.

    If he pretended to be black in order to defend blacks or criticize racists, obviously that would not be racist. But of course, this latter option makes no sense since a person would have far more credibility as a white man criticizing racism and defending blacks than a black man doing the same thing.

    Thus, any white man portraying himself on RJ as a black man and commenting on race threads is most likely a racist.

    Yes. It would be worse if he hypothetically were attempting to sound black and ended up sounding more like a character from a 70s sitcom.

    FooooooooOOOOOOL!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif
