Not much fun to stay at the Y-W-C-A

In this article, we learn that YWCA (Young Women's Christian Association) will be holding its annual "Stand Against Racism" this year on April 25th. Yes, what better way to stand up for the rights of women than by standing against people saying mean things about darkies ... I'm sure it makes sense to someone. But really, it is hard to pin down exactly what these people are standing against, as racism is a little more nebulous an enemy than homelessness, or malaria, or anal warts. Here is the YWCA's best attempt to explain what they are doing, quoting:

The Stand Against Racism™ is a movement of the YWCA with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life - across the country - to raise awareness that racism still exists.

Wait - Stand Against Racism is a trademark of the YWCA? So, the YWCA fears that someone might infringe upon their brand recognition by Standing Against Racism? That is pretty weird. Then again, we live in Topsy Turvy World. I can't wait for the NAACP to announce its new trademark: Stand Against Female Genital Mutilation™, and don't you dare stand against it if you aren't a member of the NAACP!

And how do we eliminate something? By raising awareness that it still exists. In other words - people have been forgetting about racism, so YWCA must remind people of racism to keep it alive in people's minds so they can eliminate it. Again - I'm sure it makes sense to someone.

The YWCA has posted pictures from its previous successful campaigns to raise awareness of racism so it can be eliminated, and they are appropriately ironic (Thank you DATGOY!). Please enjoy:

First we have the "Rant Against Racism" from Buncombe College, where the Chalkies (and notice its only Chalkies) literally stand on a soapbox to decry racism. Sure is easy to Stand Against Racism in an all-White enclave...

Here we have a picture of a cripple in a wheelchair, holding a sign that says "Stand Against Racism". I guess he is more a do as I say, not as a I do type. And a few darkies down we have a black man dressed as King Nut. Impressive...


Stand Against Racism - except at the Jewish Family Services Center in Asheville, North Carolina, where the chosen apparently remain seated. I kid you not - these are real pictures from the YWCA's Stand Against Racism website...

Family Resources of Greater Nebraska Stands Against Racism ... by only hiring White people...


I've fixed their advert...

Revisiting the question of why the YWCA needs to trademark their Stand Against Racism, I think it may have something to do with for profit anti-racism, Chalkies paying for the privilege to wear a button that announces they aren't racists:
