CNN Glorifies ‘White Allies’ Who Want To Police Your ‘Insensitive’ Facebook Comments

CNN published a glowing and totally uncritical article Wednesday on a group that aims to be “your white allies on Facebook.”

White Nonsense Roundup is composed of 100 self-declared “white allies” who rush “to relieve people of color from the emotional labor of engaging with a person’s racist or racially insensitive thoughts,” according to CNN’s puff piece.

CNN described the group as “roadside assistance for social media debates you’re tired of having.”

A person of color can request the assistance of White Nonsense Roundup simply by tagging the group in heated debates and letting one of the white allies interject themselves into the social media quarrel.

The group apparently has some really big fans. “It’s inspiring. I really appreciate the work that they’re doing and I steadily promote them,” Kevin Tillman, an educator in Oakland, California, told CNN. Tillman says he uses the services of these white allies on an almost daily basis.

“When I saw the (White Nonsense Roundup) post, that’s when I was like, ‘Phew, finally somebody white who gets it … someone willing to carry the burden of racism,’” raved violinist Chenoa Alamu.

The inspiration for the group came from the public debate surrounding the police shooting of Philando Castile in 2016, according to one of its founders.

“I think, as white people, we are taught that intentions are all that matters,” White Nonsense Roundup co-founder Terri Kempton told CNN. “We think that if our hearts are in the right places and we consciously doubt racism, we’re good to go. So that was a light-bulb moment to me, where I didn’t think intentions are enough.”

Kempton works as a college instructor.

The volunteers for the social media police force say they often see the same kind of problematic statements when arguing with other white people. These include: “I’m not racist because I don’t see color,” “Cultural appropriation isn’t real,” “I don’t have white privilege because of [x],” “Why is it always about race?” and “All Lives Matter.”

CNN described the last statement as “particularly thorny.”

If you are hoping to join White Nonsense Roundup, you have to go through a pretty rigorous screening process. “There are no training wheels” for potential volunteers, CNN reports.

In order to become a certified white ally, you have to submit your social media history and answer four problematic comments in a “firm but compassionate fashion.”

Once accepted into the group, which boasts over 100,000 likes on Facebook, a volunteer works a two-hour shift scanning social media for whites who stay off message.

In spite of being proud of their status as white allies, the members of White Nonsense Roundup want to emphasize to people of color that they know their place.

“We’re very aware of the tendency of white activists to center ourselves, so we’re careful not to pretend we’re white saviors,” Kempton said to CNN.

    And people say the campaign of ‘white guilt’ doesn’t exist.

    • Phil_Ossifer

      More like white genocide.

      • Roy Hobs

        Agreed…………but they had to have ‘white guilt’ so that ‘white genocide’ could happen. Agreed?

        • Phil_Ossifer

          Yep…the idea is to program whites to self-hate so as to be complicit in their own destruction. Well…FUCK THAT. Any white who apologizes for being white is a lower form of life than a serial killer, child molester or a congressman.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            I don’t know – lower than a congressman?

            Is that even possible?

  • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

    Great. MORE snowflaky shartstains playing enforcer….or should I say demi-god? But hey, if you are STOOPID enough to use that looonngg-been-conclusively-outed spyware platform (and it never was ANYTHING else), you deserve whatever you get. Enjoy, sleeple Facebutts!

    • I still can’t believe people were dumb enough to input their information like that.

  • Phil_Ossifer

    From the article: “I think, as white people, we are taught that intentions are all that matters,” White Nonsense Roundup co-founder Terri Kempton told CNN.

    What you mean-um “we,” white bitch? it’s “YOU think, as LIBERAL white people, YOU are taught that intentions are all that matters.” And that anybody who doesn’t agree with you has, by YOUR definition, bad intentions so that justifies any action YOU want to take against them.

    This is the problem in a nutshell. Shitlibs believe that only intentions matter and those of us on the right believe in objective reality and results.

    • Well whites have the facts and the truth on their side so it is very difficult for propagandized, uneducated leftists to win any argument. That’s why it takes the efforts of the largest tech companies to tilt the playing field heavily in their favor. They’re still losing though because the truth will always rise to the top which just makes them pathetic losers at this point.

  • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    At least they gave their group the proper name – it certainly is a bunch of nonsense those white people have rounded up.

    It wouldn’t be so bad if they weren’t trying to rope others into their Crazy Corral, if I may extended the metaphor.

  • Ratcraft

    Who has a facebook? Damn what’s wrong with people?

  • While at the same time ignoring black serial killers that proclaimed they wanted to kill all white people and did kill a number of them but he dindu nuffin’ so it wasn’t worth a story.
