the reason i’m flipping out about ancaps all of a sudden is because apparently there are quite a few within the hardcore scene here? they’re mostly either ancaps, or libertarian ron paul loving private property pro-US “i don’t see race” assholes. oh and the people that have these views are mostly white too, if that isn’t a given. i’m honestly glad i don’t actually associate with that group of people lmao like it’s a white dominated scene that is not very welcome to people who actually want to address things like racism, sexism, etc because i’m pretty sure most of them think it’s “pointless” and just “whining” yeah okay like music and music scenes have never had the capacity to ignite actual social change and political movements yep mhm funk or hip-hop weren’t revolutionary in the least nope it’s not like they originated as art forms of resistance (like hardcore did) but lol no nothing will ever change and i am misanthropic and society is terrible because i am white, middle class, and apathetic nope violence is never the answer even for those who are marginalized and oppressed but i will fight someone at a hardcore show for the most frivolous of reasons and let me have guns but don’t let people of color have them because they’re irresponsible thugs

i just looked up “anarcho capitalist people of color” on google

0 relevant results which all have nothing to actually do with anarcho capitalist people of color on the first five pages (and i doubt there are any in the other pages either)

i also looked up “communist people of color” and found a bunch of relevant results which included articles and information having to do with communist people of color within the first two pages.

and i know that most actual leftist anarchist people of color and oppressed people throughout history have been fervently anti-capitalist. anarchism originated as an anti-capitalist ideology. it has always been an anti-capitalist ideology, and will always be an anti-capitalist ideology, despite the co-opting and appropriation of the ideology by proponents of capitalism who claim that anarchism isn’t anti-capitalist

how political tendencies like libertarianism, anarcho-capitalism, and voluntaryism are, and always have been, comprised of predominantly middle and upper-class white people (with extremely miniscule concentrations of people of color) is not coincidental. these ideologies are, without a doubt, unapologetically racist, ableist, and exploitative. it is, like i’ve said before, social darwinian don’t-tread-on-me nonsense.

There are also significant differences emerging within broad panethnic groups such as ‘Asians’ (South Asians, including Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis). In comparison with other Asians, Indian and African Asians have both lower rates of unemployment and higher incomes than Pakistani and Bangladeshi Britons. Another key basis of division among Asians in Britain is their religion, particularly between Muslims (predominantly Bangladeshis and Pakistanis) on the one hand and Hindus and Sikhs on the other hand, an issue which has gained prominence in the aftermath of 11 September, 2001, and the predominantly negative depictions of Muslims. Within the context of such thinking, there have been growing questions about the legitimacy and appropriateness of calling Indian or Bangladeshi Britons ‘black’. In what sense are they black, and do most Asian people consider themselves to be black? Tariq Modood (1994, p. 860) argues that this term is not consonant with the identities of most Asian people in Britain (see also Modood
et al. 1997, p. 294). He argues that the term ‘black’ connotes too narrow a conception of racial discrimination because it is said to obscure the particular kinds of racisms that Asian people suffer. Many South Asian people, especially post-The Satanic Verses and 9/11, encounter racial epithets concerning their putative foreignness, which stress, among other things, their distinctive religious beliefs and their wearing of saris, turbans, and salwar kameez. It is important to understand the dynamics of ‘cultural racism’, which is said to be targeted at certain groups which are seen as being assertively different from the wider society, such as South Asians. Second, Modood has argued that the inclusiveness of black is problematic because it suggests a false essentialism, that all non-white groups necessarily share something in common. He argues that, in addition to the sometimes qualitatively different kinds of racial abuse which disparate groups experience, South Asians have some concerns and needs which are distinct from those of other ethnic minority groups, such as concerns about religious education in schools for Muslims. In recent years, British Muslims have increasingly been defined in terms of negativity and alienation, drawing on notions of an emergent Pakistani and Bangladeshi underclass (Alexander 2000, pp. 6) By comparison, Modood argues that the valorization of black (African Caribbean) popular culture has resulted in the elevation of black identity in Britain. It is argued that the black-white social, cultural, and sexual ‘mix’ is deep and longstanding, and that this ‘mix’ is made possible by the fact that ethnic segregation between black and white Britons is relatively low, especially in comparison with the USA, and in comparison with white-South Asian segregation in Britain (Modood 2002). —Song, Miri. “Who’s at the Bottom?

idk why people think that a subordinate racial status can be superceded or transcended by a dominant class status. being a rich person of color doesn’t make you any less of a person of color. the difference between race and class is that class status is flexible; race is fixed.

i think a major flaw with the concept of privilege is that it simplifies the hierarchial nature of race to a great extent. people of color aren’t some homogenous entity, which is why it’s important to acknowledge race as a hierarchy in which white people are positioned at the top of and Black and Indigenous/Native people are positioned at the bottom of. everyone else is in the middle, as conspicously shown by how other racial groupings haven’t been enslaved or had genocide inflicted upon them on as massive of a scale as Black and Indigenous/Native people have, and how other racial groupings don’t face the repercussions of those things as detrimentally as Black and Indigenous/Native people have and do.

white people feel personally victimized whenever a generalizing statement about them is made because they don’t want to acknowledge how race exists as a hierarchy, and how they are positioned at the top of this racial hierarchy. colonized and oppressed people have been condemning white people for centuries, but there have also been white people who have been and are supportive of them and sympathetic to them because they acknowledge the existence of a racial hierarchy and their dominant position within it. they say, “wow, i am positioned ahead of people of color on the racial hierarchy, and i shouldn’t be mad when they criticize or generalize white people because they are expressing their frustration at a dominant racial class whose hierarchial dominance necessarily casts people of color into subordinate positions within the racial hierarchy.”

white people have an obligation to challenge false equivalencies which serve to supress legitimate complaints and expressions of frustration made by people of color. if a white person feels victimized by people of color directing their frustrations towards the white identity, which was devised by western europeans to establish dominance over colonial subjects, then they don’t respect people of color. period.
