POLITRICKS 2008: Kill White Tee!

obaama

Now if I did a run of ‘Kill White Tee’ shirts using this graphic wouldn’t I be guilty of the same supremacy sensationalism as the New Yorker magazine? Actually, I’d like to think that the conversations my shirts would start would be more productive, but I would still be putting graphics into the public realm for people to misinterpret.

The latest flare up concerning OBAAMA indirectly has to do with the hipster designer who created a t-shirt proclaiming that ‘Obama Is My Slave’. I kind of find that funny too. The designer says that he created that shirt because that is the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant view of the Democratic party’s candidate for president.

Right there, the t-shirt designer became a shitbag. Who the fuck knows what anyone has kicking around in their head? He may be right after all, but the declaration that someone else is the supremacist and not himself is cowardly. No one should buy the designs of a coward.

I don’t feel too bad for the chick who was duffed out in Union Square NYC whiler wearing that ‘Obama Is My Slave’ t-shirt. She should have vetted her apparel designer more thoroughly instead of just buying some provactive schmatte. Now some young girls have been arrested for doing the right thing (no Spike Lee) and kicking her ass.

Let this be a lesson to anyone who has the noble intention of sparking a conversation through the use of irony. Get your shirts from a reputable source, and not some skinny jeans faggot trying to score a buck. I don’t call the designer a faggot because I think he is a homo. His sexuality isn’t even part of the debate. I call him a faggot because he is setting people up to get their asses kicked and then using a lawyer to defend his right to print bullshit on a t-shirt.

Plus, he ain’t got the irony down right.

    if someone dropped an anvil on the “designer’s” head, the world would be a better place.

    true story.

  2. Dart_Adams says:

    I’ve been chopping it up about this over on Miss Info’s page and a dude in the comments section actually went by the store and kinda confronted the designer/store owner. He suggested that people go by the store en masse and let dude know that while we’re in America and we have “free speech” people also have the God/State given right to express themselves TO YOU as well.

    I’d be on a Fung Wah to NY right fuckin’ now if I didn’t have hella responsibilities right here.

    One.

  5. thoreauly77 says:

    you discredit the many fine points you make with this kind of response.

    “honestly, with all of your talk about supremacy, you still talk shit calling people “faggots” and “homo”. you need to cut that stuff out for real d. ”

    ^^ the hell is the big deal? after D said…

    “I don’t call the designer a faggot because I think he is a homo. His sexuality isn’t even part of the debate. I call him a faggot because he is setting people up to get their asses kicked and then using a lawyer to defend his right to print bullshit on a t-shirt.”

    i dont see whats the big issue. if he was referring to battymen, then i would cosign.

  7. Enigmatik says:

    can we just agree to call this designer dude a punk ass?

  8. the_dallas says:

    thoreauly77,
    I always use that language to cut the wheat from the chaff. I don’t want to water my shit down that I will need scuba gear to write here.

    That is also why this blog isn’t very popular considering the amount of time I have been in the blogosphere. I have a space though that I can be unapologetic and unfiltered for whatever random thought that comes to my mind.

    If you aren’t disturbed or offended at one point than I haven’t done a good job of reporting shit. If you get hung up on names and titles then you haven’t done a good job reading shit.

  9. thoreauly77 says:

    mo- if you don’t see how saying, ” I don’t call the designer a faggot because I think he is a homo.” as being kinda fucked up then that’s your deal. here’s the thing: both “faggot” and “homo” are used as disparaging remarks toward homeosexuals. get it? not a disclaimer as intended. more like an eminem disclaimer. but then again, you call them “battymen”, so i guess i already understand your perspective.

    “If you get hung up on names and titles then you haven’t done a good job reading shit.”

    this line doesn’t even make sense in the context of the argument. or nearly any argument you make based upon names and titles, such as the exemplary piece on “neggar”, which i happened to summarize for some dummies today in a xxl thread. i do an excellent job “reading shit”. but you wanna call me out as being myopic when i have a clearly valid point? that’s just lame man.

  10. the_dallas says:

    ^ wamp, wamp.

    Don’t let your tears fall into your lap(top).

  11. Marvelous Mo says:

    This blog isn’t for readers who can’t take the real talk. And if you scroll up top the subtitle states, “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH”

    I don’t come here to read a diluted form of opinion form a knowledgeable poster and commenters for that matter and the reason why there are silent regulars who frequent this blog and the commenters is because of how funky dallas keeps it on any type of level.

    Its a raw discussion. Take the condom off and man up. And if the content on this site is too much for you ask yourself why you come here often?

    No hate, but I’m just saying.

  12. thoreauly77 says:

    the reason i visit this site is because people actually have discussions and rarely have to resort to phrases like “take the condom off.” that and because dallas offers a unique opinion. if you, mo (since dallas obviously doesn’t think my opinion is valid on this one) don’t think my opinion is valid that people should not be called faggots, then that’s fine.

  13. wilson says:

    what does a “mick” refer to?

    and dallas, i think “bitchmade” is a perfect description of the designer

    faggot is too bland nowadays; it’s like saying “i have shoes”

    but “bitchmade”= occam’s razor under the tongue of Jean Grae

  14. geneva_jones says:

    I’m with thoreauly77 on this one. And I’m not fragile – in my family, we call each other kike, I-tal, wop, pussy, and other words I can’t type here, but call my aunt when she’s being a pain in the ass. If you use the words “faggot” or “gay” or “homo” as an insult, then you’re saying that to be a faggot, gay, or homo is something bad. May not seem like a big deal to us po-mo enlightened folks, but when I hear kid insult another kid by calling him an f*ing faggot, he’s not making the high-brow distinction between the “fake” faggots he wants to beat up or the “real” ones. Doesn’t matter if faggots call each other faggots, or it’s been reclaimed or whatever – if you call someone a faggot and you mean something bad by it – like “he is setting people up to get their asses kicked” – you’re setting the definition.

  15. thoreauly77 says:

    wilson- mick refers to the irish. since “mc” is a popular prefix for irish last names, when they got to ellis, they were referred to as “mc’s” (micks), even if they dropped it from their name, such as my family.

  16. thor, I have no idea who you are, but loosen up fam. First I see you over at DX saying that I’m part of the reason the world thinks the way they do about Americans (I challenge you to read my blog archives and then say that to my face)…and now you’re getting on DP’s case for…well, doing what he always does?

    I swear I’ve seen you around the internet before and have never gotten this sort of uptight impression from you. Perhaps you’re having a bad day. If that’s the case, I hope it improves. But you know what to expect when you hit up this site…come on man.

  17. thoreauly77 says:

    amanda- i actually was feeling really uptight yesterday. but i swear, i do have a sense of humor!

  18. the_dallas says:

    DP Dot Com fam,
    The comments in this thread have inspired me to step up my epithet game. For the remainder of the third fiscal quarter I will rain down more profanity and ethnic-racial-sexual, anti-animal, anti-environmental epithets then ever before in my history.

    For those of you that think that you can make the world a better place by collecting glass bottles in a special clear plastic bag, or placing white xerox paper in a special blue container, and by NOT saying certain words you are all DEAD wrong. And mostly cowards afraid to confront the actual creation of intolerance on this planet.

    My first piece of advice to you folks is to gain some spirituality. I didn’t say become religious. Spirituality is so much deeper than any religion on the planet. The one whose names cannot be uttered by the human tongue created everything including the glass, the plastics, the niggers and the faggots. This is who I answer to.

    I’m gonna hold your bitch ass accountable for this shit. You my nigga, DP.

  20. Marvelous Mo says:

    That’s what I’m talkin bout, D !!!

  21. thoreauly77 says:

    “My first piece of advice to you folks is to gain some spirituality”

    – now that’s some faggoty ass shit. only a battybwoy would believe in some homofied sky wizards.

    goddamn, i’m just fucking kidding.

  22. “I will rain down more profanity and ethnic-racial-sexual, anti-animal, anti-environmental epithets then ever before in my history”

    am i fucked up because the use of the word “then” for “than” bothers me more than the epithets?

  23. the_dallas says:

    nope, just join the list of nerd weirdos that hangs out here. We’ve got plenty of space for ya’.

    twerk,
    I lost my Blackberry. hit up my celly becaue I will be in your ‘hood next week 7/24-7/31

    The Kill White Tee Movement is the answer to the racial bigotry of our time. Think of it as a modern day equivalent to Jesse’s “I am somebody” speech but more in tune with the realities of our era.

    Dallas Penn is the Jimmy Breslin of the Internets.

    Readers of this blog are witnessing history as online content surpasses so much of what is published in magazines and newspaper columns.

    Digital 1s and 0s fortell that the future of media relies on this thing we call blogging and remixing the world we see around us as D, Rafi and Casimir have done with the I.C.

    Copyrights and lawyers stifled the progress of hip-hop back in the late 80’s. Online we see the digital revolution, fair use and bloggers like Dallas have rekindled the flames of creativity which represent the true voice of the masses.

    Dallas Penn stays winning, open source keeps hard drives spinning and there maybe, just might be some hope that change isn’t some empty slogan.

    Keep up the kickass work Dallas.

    Rock on.
