When AOL bought Huffington Post, everyone knew they were getting royally screwed on the deal. Now, it’s come to this. A racist, black blog poster at the Huffington Post decided to write an article discussing how it’s time to take away the right to vote of white males. The black racist Shelley Garland who wrote the article isn’t really that well known, which is why she was looking for attention with this post. She must have figured, with all the other crazy shit that comes out of the Huffington POst, no on would notice.
But the backlash against the Huffington Post and AOL has been so fierce that the Huffington Post has been forced to delete Garland’s racist article. They didn’t really apologize for the racist article. Instead, the Huffington Post says “We apologise for the oversight.”
|Huffington Post deletes post advocating stripping white men of their right to vote|
A blog post published Thursday on the Huffington Post’s South African version of the site advocated stripping white men of their right to vote.
Shelley Garland is an activist and feminist completing a Master of Arts degree in philosophy and “working on ways to smash the patriarchy.”
“Could It Be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?” she asked Thursday in the title of her blog post.
“It is time to wrestle control of the world back from white males, and the first step will be a temporary restriction of the franchise to them,” according to Garland.
“If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened,” she explained. “It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely–the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world.”
Garland blames white men for electing Donald Trump and voting for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.
“The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008,” she added. “This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.”
