Discrimination does exist in all races and religions.
It's difficult to call out in front of anyone though, without an argument.

Come to Florida and ask a black guy what they think about Puerto Ricans. Now go visa versa.
Then ask a white guy.
Then ask an Asian what they think about other Asians.

And then, go to one church and listen to them go on about other churches.

It happens. It's happening. If you don't see it, you're blind and not paying attention to what goes on around you. That or you're stuck in a basement dungeon.

Hell, we can't stand friggin loud mouthed New Yorkers and we don't care what nationality or religion they are. They can't farking drive!

It's adorable that someone with the last name "Jafari" thinks Trump's policies are awesome. That'll last until the first time he leaves and then tries to re-enter the country.

I didn't know a "Sorry not sorry" weaseling response was considered 'digging up' these days.

"if they immigrate they need to integrate,"

Yet, for some reason we have Eurotrash immigrant and Trump advisor Sebastian Gorka, "PhD", running around dressed like a dorky goth Sgt. Pepper, which doesn't seem very integrated to me.

Everyone is prejudiced to some degree.  But to discriminate, you need power, over jobs, real estate, schooling, the justice system, or all of the above.

This is a videogames thread, discussing the important topics in videogamesing.

Probably a fine time to remind people of the things Jontron said in the stream that has lead to this non-apology:

Rich black people are more inclined to be criminals than poor white people

The confederate flag is more important to the history of America than anything that has happened since

He is a believer in Aztlan and believe that's where Mexicans came from

Mexicans flee to America because they are fleeing Mexican culture

America should protect its white culture like India protects being Indian

Liberals are forcing cultural segregation which is just as bad, actually worse, than racial segregation because it's harder to see

Minorities are treated worse because they don't accomplish things - if they were better, they would be treated better, and people would want to be minorities instead of complaining about being minorities

Racism can't be defined so easily and is being applied too broadly

Trump has never said anything racist

White people don't protest abortion, generally. it's mostly Muslims who do, and they make it look like white people do it by hiding in the shadows

And a quote to top this off: "Look, it's fine if brown people come to America and contribute, but then they enter the gene pool. That needs to be prevented."

Could you clarify what this one is about?
 
2017-03-20 09:47:29 AM  
Some of the broad statements, like "I was trying to speak to the increasing tribalization of our culture" seem reasonable. But once you get to specifics you can tell there's a problem.

Some statements seem to be entirely context-illiterate, "I suppose you could guess the reaction if Samantha Bee said black people ruined America for voting overwhelmingly for Barack Obama, which they did both times"

Other statements are dangerously misinformed, "wealthy black people are more likely to commit crimes than poor white people".

The big problem, though, is that he's totally resistant to reevaluating his ideas, "I said lots of stuff that could be misconstrued in all sorts of ways".  It's OK to be wrong or misinformed, but doubling down just because you don't want to be wrong is where people are going to really judge you.

The Aztlan thing? It's one of those unproven legend things. Had to look it up myself. Supposedly the whole thing about it is that an ancient, long disappeared Aztec civilization made up of different tribes that was said to have occupied the southeastern US, and disappeared suddenly. One of the tribes went to Mexico and founded a civilization there.

Well, that's certainly plausible. They did disappear. And the Incas, where did they go?
Maybe there was some sort of war?

Minor thing, just noticed my typo but should have been the "Southwest US" not Southeast. Been that kind of morning.

That said, there's probably a lot more info out there. My summary is just from a cursory glance at wikipedia when I went looking it up.

So, do I leave the comments questioning your parentage and sexual orientation on both the Facebook page and the Youtube comments, or just one or the other? And where does the poorly transcribed ascii art copy-pasta go?

We'll be, uh, opening a Twitch channel later tonight, probably gonna be playing some Minecraft there, so uh, if you want to uh, question my sexuality, tell my parents to kill themselves, that's probably a good starting point, just make sure you, uh, subscribe to my channel, so your comments get into the live stream where I'll be able to see them, thanks.

Yes. Seriously. I recommend both of the following:
- Outside XBox (and their sister channel Outside Xtra)
- Many A True Nerd

The people doing those channels are genuinely lovely people. :)
 
2017-03-20 11:04:39 AM  
Of all of the gaming-related Youtube channels to which I subscribe -- and I subscribe to many -- JonTron's has never been one of them.

MatPat (Game Theorists), PeanutButterGamer, IkiFoo, Pat the NES Punk (who actually made mention of the possible folly of discussing politics on a gaming channel in a recent podcast), Jim Farking Sterling, Larry Bundy, Jr. are amongst my list, but JonTron has never been.
 
2017-03-20 11:06:03 AM  
Wow TFA almost makes him seem to be misunderstood except for the bit about wealthy blacks committing violent crimes, so I looked up some details about the rest that he said and...no he's not misunderstood at all, he's a douche.

"People looking at this think I'm some kind of explicit ethno-nationalist, but I'm not," Jafari said.

I was always a huge racist when I played Warcraft III, treated Orc and Undead players like second-class citizens.  I wasn't wrong.
 
2017-03-20 11:19:50 AM  
Reading his commentary, it seems as though he is more of a cultural elitist than a racist, though that certainly is not a laudable status and I may be unaware of other statements that would indicate racism.
 
2017-03-20 11:26:41 AM  
Yes, there are people who are racist against white folks.

But they're not the ones making all the farking noise and being jerks to everyone who isn't their skin color.

The only people I watch play video games are the ones that are actually trying to pass along helpful/usefull information.

That being said, I think I watched some movie review that had Jontron in it at the request of a friend and I found him unfunny and didn't see what the big deal was. This just reaffirms my opinion that he is unfunny and douchey.
