I’ve just had a conversation with a friend about Derailing conversations because of my post a few days ago. This attempt to derail the National Socialist Party/KKK rally’s conversation came up. This is precicely the kind of conversation derailing I was talking about. The KKK has determined that black people are the problem. They are discussing ways to fix this problem. The protesters intent on derailing this conversation yell “White Flour” and “Dwight Power” in responce to every “White Power” by the NAZI (and yes they really are neo NAZIs).
Derailing and distracting from conversations that are hateful bigotry is a valid and useful advocacy/activist tactic. Just because it was YOUR hateful sexist bigotry that was being derailed doesn’t make derailing it bad.
