I missed these. What did LDR do or say that was racist? When did Billy say that?

Lana del Rey posted a message on instagram basically trying to say that she felt unjustly criticized because of some of her lyrics. Which sure, would be a fair point, but she felt the need to specifically namedrop women of color artists to frame herself as a victim and as being somehow silenced.

Billy's dumb take is on his video about bullying.

I don't know anything about the Del Ray thing, but the other thing:
Quote:
“It’s pretty remarkable that I could say one word right now that would destroy my career,” he said, as the screen displayed images of Michael Richards and Paula Deen, both of whom faced derision after using the N-word. “I could use the wrong racial epithet or say the wrong thing to you or look down at the wrong part of your body and be castigated and it’s a meme and I’m a horrible person."
https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m...speech-224649/

For the record, I don't think Corgan, like, hates or dislikes minorities or anything like that. I think he's just the kind of clueless white guy who wonders why rappers can say the n-word but he can't and also why isn't "cracker" considered a bad word too? All lives matter I'm so smart and balanced

Billy is a musical genius. He doesn't have the wherewithal to speak on these matters. He knows better. And by better, I mean, he knows it's not his place. Some people are better at doing stuff like that, he knows he isn't. Don't chastise him. He's smart. And, who the fuck cares what he has to say about a global problem. Billy isn't Kendal Jenner!

Lana Del Rey is not a racist.

She was highlighting racism. And I don’t mean she was highlighting racism against white people. This is a subtle, insidious racism of diminished expectations. It’s ok for women of colour to sing about being broken, being abused, having mental health issues but Lana Del Rey is a pretty white woman and should behave with some dignity. This is “othering” on a global scale.

That isn’t the exact point she made but she was pretty close to it, to piercing the veil and realising what the music industry really is. Of course, the gatekeepers couldn’t allow that so set to work on destroying her credibility and career. We’re talking about people who made Rihanna paint her face, dance and sing about being beaten by Chris Brown, glamourised it and marketed it to kids. To little girls. What lesson do you think people learned from that? Now the same gatekeepers say Lana Del Rey is racist? Gimme a break.

This kind of thing is one of many reasons why people think they can treat people of colour like shit.

you know the answers to this.

1. There is no band. There is Bill Corgan CEO of Corgan Inc.
2. Billy is a bigot misogynist fascist monster
3. Fuck Billy Corgan

I think Lana Del Rey is not a very intellectual person. She once dismissed some question about feminism because, according to her, she is more interested in questions like if there is life elsewhere in the universe.

Bill publicly threatened to beat up a trans woman who was a boarder here.

Before that he wrote transphobic stuff in his Live Journal.

He's been on his friend Alex Jones's show repeatedly complaining about how Liberals and the Illuminati are trying to destroy him and the world.

He thinks chem trails are a conspiracy to poison him.

LOL where the fuck have you been the past 30 years? Bill has spoken and made comments at one point on just about everything. He's an ego maniac who can't stop talking. He had to quit social media cause he couldn't stop himself from saying horrible shit and threatening to beat people up.

The few times I have spoken to him he rambled on and on complaining about how everyone is out to get him.

....doesn't have the wherewithall. LOL.

It will lead to bannings. I don't give a fuck any more, so you choose: do what you did when talking about Brazil's politics years ago, freedom of speech and what have you. After that, you'll have to choose Reddit or whatever other place to voice shit like this. Or you can decide to not share horrendously stupid at best and outright racist shit as you just did on this board.
Clear? Fantastic.

Fascists advocate for / I believe in

Media regulation / freedom of the press
Economic interventionism / Economic Freedom
Protectionism / free market
High taxes / less taxes as possible
Authoritarianism / Libertarianism

.
It's a thread with everybody talking about politics, calling people names such as "fascists", only for saying left wing organizations can be as extreme and violent as the far right ones, or racists, or transphobics, and monster! Did I see you threatening to ban anyone else tho? No, i didn't! Did I see you mentioning to close the fucking thread to follow the "no politics" policy here, or even moving it to the "general chat" section? hell no! Is there a "no politics" policy in place, or is it just a "no politics that I disagree"?

Lana Del Rey was spewing Misogynoir. She did her rant when 4 Black women topped the charts..which shows she was salty..almost like a saltine of some sort.
I'm glad Death Cab has filled the space left by SP cuz Ben has been very supportive of Black Lives Matter & as a Black Woman in these fandoms it means a lot. Non Black fans have no idea how it feels to have an artist say the anti Black things we constantly have to hear

Talking about the mod banning people for disagreeing with them? You have a point there.

Good points. And to your credit, your remark wasn't so much politics, it was just plain fucking stupidity.

Wasn't that clear? Thanks for clarifying that! Did you get the part I was suggesting he's probably more of a fascist then I'd ever be too? Please, we need your input here.

My problem with libertarianism (in the American sense. I’m actually quite libertarian left on the political compass) is that being socially left wing is kinda rendered meaningless if you’re right wing economically. Corporations aren’t people. I try to understand everyone’s views though. One of my two best friends is libertarian. We argue about it a lot but I respect him still. Unless Forgotten Child is advocating for fascism, I agree he shouldn’t be demonized simply for having a view we don’t like.
