Interweb hashtag #givewhiteyacookie

In the spirit of starting a new thread and not dumping this into an existing thread, I give you a shiny new dumping thread for when the trending news about a racially charged situation is all about how awesome and totally not racist whitey is. I'll start.

#illridewithyou



Australians Just Showed the World Exactly How to Respond to Terrorism With #IllRideWithYou - Mic

So when ES first told me about the hashtag, I thought it was pretty cool.

The resulting coverage confuses me, since white people are super inclusive and awesome, I wonder what kind of ogres they are protecting the Muslims or Sikhs from.

The other thing that kills me is the titles of the two articles. I wanted to edit the anchor text on the second link but the "no cookies" bit was too serendipitous to resist. The title is "Sydney shows its heart to the world with a #illridewithyou after Lindt cafe siege." I keep thinking, the Muslims aren't Australian? The racists aren't in Sydney? The World doesn't include anyone but well-meaning white liberals?

It's a cool idea that basically becomes trash as soon as it's used a 'we're so awesome' propaganda. I couldn't help but think, yeah you're all so nice to the Muslims, what about the aborigines that you have a history of racism against.

Oh yeah, about that attacker: Iran: Extradition of Sydney attacker refused
Tehran says it demanded extradition of Sydney cafe hostage-taker in 2000, but its request was rejected by Australia.

I was talking to my boy Dave, who is an engineer at the google and also a friend, and he was over at our place for card playing and eating of grilled meat. He was telling me about this project he had done for a graphics class (it was germane to our totally boring conversation, he wasn't just boring me with this project shit for no reason), and he mentions ray-tracing, and then again later he refers to ray-tracing and he breaks off and goes "you know ray-tracing, right? From your graphics work?" And I was like "sure do, go on."

Dave gets multiple cookies cuz:

1: He initially (correctly) assumed I understood the special term he used.
2: Later realized he had made the assumption, and confirmed it without being condescending at all.
3: He fucking remembered my graphics work?! I don't even remember telling him about it specifically, but we've been friends for a couple years and we're always chatting about whatever boring technical stuff, so it must have come up. But he fucking listened in real time and then remembered it later?! I'll be honest, I have no idea what he did in school.

Hashtag give that white boy all of the cookies.

He's from Australia, for whatever that's worth. :australia: (So biscuits I guess?)

Guess what, my boy Dave is going to Grace Hopper this year. He's representing the LLVM community, which, like most open source projects, has been particularly hostile to women and therefore does not have enough women. Everyone who hears about this agrees that Dave is the right guy to send. :pleased:
