Activists Have Monetized White Guilt
There's liberal self-flagellation and then there's this. In the shrewdest hustle to separate a fool and his money since Scientology, a new company is charging progressives up to $100 a month to atone for the original sin of being white.

http://nymag.com/thecut/2017/03/safety-p...acism.html

Quote:Since the safety pin trend launched after the election, a lot of people have tried to profit from it — from Etsy artisans to luxury brands. But amidst the corporations trying to figure out how to capitalize on white Americans’ desire to broadcast their solidarity in the Trump era, one company is doing something different: Safety Pin Box is the brainchild of two women of color who were frustrated with the superficial display of white activism. If white people really wanted to be allies, they wondered, would they be willing to do more than pin a piece of metal to their shirts? And if so, what would that look like?

Marissa Jenae Johnson and Leslie Mac created Safety Pin Box to find out. The monthly subscription service challenges its users to do more with their outrage than display it, and in exchange for $50–$100 a month (depending on the program) receive not a pin, not a pussy hat, but a lesson about racial bias and a task to tackle it. Plus, their cash contributions fund black-women activists, in an attempt at reparations. Three months later, Safety Pin Box has 800 subscribers and has contributed nearly $21,000 to Black Women Being. Both Johnson and Mac have quit their jobs to focus on the project full time.

The subscribers to this service pay for the pleasure of wallowing in their guilt and the privilege of being 'a good person.' That's right, anti-Trumpists, you can't show your solidarity with oppressed minorities by meaningless gestures anymore. No, you have to earn that shiny 'certified not racist' badge. And you can start by ponying up some cash and performing the tasks set out by these fugly black women:

'Intersectionality' is a secular religion, and now they're selling pardons.

It's actually called selling an "Indulgence". At least in Catholicism.

Like a Film Major in 1999 looking at the Blair Witch Project, I am mad I did not think of it first.

"I love white people,they are awesome! Especially hot,tight,18 year old, white women who love interracial sex with tall black men from Atlanta"

Yep, gotta agree it's very similar to selling indulgences.

Some undercover deplorables should start a similar thing and secretly donate the profits to the MAGA cause.

Look at their faces, they know exactly what they are doing and are laughing their way to the bank.

Guess you never heard of Lauren Chief Elk.

#GiveYourMoneyToWomen

Quote:#GiveYourMoneyToWomen[edit]
Along with fellow activist and friend Nick Mullen, host of Cum Town, Chief Elk cofounded the Twitter hashtag that encourages men on Twitter to directly give money to women as a way of balancing gender-based income inequality.[3]

Jennifer Schaffer explains, "Women were banding together to demand payment for all the emotional work we do that goes completely unpaid—the exhausting work of being a tolerant, gentle, nurturing, listening woman in our relationships with men, at all times. Women put up with a lot of bullshit, and we have a science-backed term for it: Emotional labor. And as with any kind of labor, women are now ready and eager to get paid."[4]

“I took one look at her and said, ‘This is it. I’ll be back for you. Stick with me, kid, and you’ll be farting through silk.’ ”
