Why SJWs Want to Censor Games While Studiously Avoiding Rap Music
One of the more interesting, if seldom asked, question that follows from the intense interest of SJWs in censoring video games is follows:
Why are SJWs and their accomplices focusing their “activism” on certain forms of entertainment such as comic books and video games, while conspicuously ignoring the same issues in other forms such as various subtypes of rap/hip-hop music, popular non-network TV shows and movies?
Some of you might say that SJWs and their accomplices have already tried interfering in those forms- with very limited success. Well.. that is partially true, but there is much more to the story of why they failed to have any significant impact on rap music, movies and non-network TV shows.
Let us try to understand why certain forms of entertainment, such as rap music, have successfully resisted interference from SJWs. As some of you might know, the lyrics and imagery of rap/hip-hop music was considered scandalous throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. At that time, many famous proto-SJWs spent a lot of time and effort on concerted attempts to censor rap music. As many of you also know, these proto-SJWs failed so miserably that much of what (lyrics, language, behavior and dancing moves) was considered scandalous barely 20 years is now nauseatingly mainstream.
So why did SJWs fail to censor rap music in the late 1980s, and what can we learn from that massive failure?
The more cynical of you might say that rap music succeeded because white suburban kids loved transgressive black music- and there is some truth to that. But there is far more to this story than white suburban kids who bough records to look cool and piss off their parents. Start by comparing the behavior and personal lives of famous singers and musicians from various popular genres. Why are white rock stars (even those in certain popular 80s bands) widely, and correctly, perceived as less masculine than similar famous black rappers?
It comes down to how each group tries to achieve social acceptance, respectability and fame.
White musicians, like most other white morons, believe that social acceptance, fame and respectability is achieved by striving, begging and compromising. They also believe in popular scams like meritocracy and hard work. Most black musicians in contrast, understand that popularity in the music industry is some combination of intrinsic talent and plain dumb luck. They have also figured out that all that talk about meritocracy and hard work are lies meant to enrich a few white assholes at the expense of everybody else. Perhaps most importantly, they have figured out something that eludes most white morons- all that talk about social acceptance and respect from people who will abandon you, at the proverbial drop of a hat, is dishonest and meaningless.
The thoughts and actions of most black rappers are therefore not constrained by delusional attempts at gaining worthless social acceptance and respectability. Instead, they want real things like fame and money.
White musicians usually ask, beg and grovel for something that their black equivalents rightly demand. This slavish desire for worthless social acceptance and respectability also makes white musicians far more susceptible to compromise in the face of manufactured media campaigns- such as those run by SJWs. In contrast, most black musicians have little interest in gaining such worthless social respectability and are therefore largely immune from manufactured media campaigns to shame them or make them censor themselves.
Then there is the angle of plausible threats- or more precisely, who is afraid of whom.
Most black musicians, especially rappers, are not afraid of risky physical confrontations- to put it mildly. Nor are they afraid of living in poverty, as most of them grew up in less than affluent households. But perhaps most importantly, they inspire visceral fear in the minds of SJWs. Would those Sarkesian or Quinn critters dare to go up against some black rapper who has been shot and jailed a few times? Would they? and if not, why not?
My point is that leading a manufactured “moral crusade” against socially awkward white guys is far less physically risky than doing that against guys who have injured and killed people for disrespecting them.
In case you were wondering, fear is also the reason SJWs will almost never target big time TV shows and movie producers. Of course, in this case it is the fear of armies of lawyers and being blacklisted by those who have money. And let us be clear about something, those Sarkesian and Quinn critters are in it for attention, money and power- not social justice. They will never bite the hands that might feed or throw a few crumbs at them. SJWs are attacking gamers because they believe that have a chance at winning without any real physical, legal or financial risk. They also believe that gamers, being mostly socially awkward men, can be scammed into defeat via lies about losing social respect and acceptability.
