HuffPo Author Agrees: 90% of Whites Might be Racist

Writing for the Huffington Post, Zeba Blay lauded and quoted statements that compared white people to “rattlesnakes” and which said that 90% of white people could be racists.

Blay posted a video of Muhammad Ali from 1971 in which Ali said it’s counter-productive to say that not all white people are racist.

In the article, Blay quotes Ali as saying:

There are many white people who mean right and in their hearts wanna do right. If 10,000 snakes were coming down that aisle now, and I had a door that I could shut, and in that 10,000, 1,000 meant right, 1,000 rattlesnakes didn’t want to bite me, I knew they were good… Should I let all these rattlesnakes come down, hoping that that thousand get together and form a shield? Or should I just close the door and stay safe?

In other words, if 1,000 white people are not racist, then a full 9,000 (or 90% of white people) are.

According to Blay, Ali’s response was “perfect,” aptly calling her article “Watch Muhammad Ali’s Perfect Response To ‘Not All White People Are Racist’ — In 1971.”

Then, again in her story, she calls Ali’s comparison of white people to snakes “perfect,” writing, “boxing icon Muhammad Ali perfectly explains why the existence of some “good” white people isn’t always enough.”

She also had no problem with comparing white people to snakes in the first place, as if all white people are venomous killers waiting to strike. It shows Blay’s perception of whites; even if 100% of rattlesnakes don’t bite you, they’re still poisonous predators.

“Allies are obviously appreciated and vital to stopping racial injustice, but Ali’s words are still a pretty powerful reminder of the reality of being black in America,” she concludes. “It’s pretty amazing, if unfortunate, that over 40 years later his words still resonate.”

  1. I believe that 90% of blacks are retarded and 100% of left wingers are evil.

    It’s what I believe so it’s true.

  2. I wonder if Zeba ever stopped her hatred long enough to realize how much money Cautous Clay made off of rattle snakes?

  3. I’m not racist, I just remember that no white person has ever randomly attacked me.

    If Zeba wants to end all perceived racism, she be better off hiring a new PR agency for blacks. Because the real problem is that perception is reality. I know there’s good black people, but the fact is many are not, so until they prove otherwise I lump them all in the same bucket. I do the same with just about anyone no matter what their skin color is. If you look like a jersey shore douchebag faggot, until you prove otherwise, that’s what you are.

  4. Didn’t Ali discover is Islamic religion a few years before his draft notice came it? At 22 I kind of figure he knew it was coming some time and prepared for it. Anyway, he sure was fast in taking that cash money from the “evil” white man. In any event Zeba Blay and the Huffington Post is all you really need to say about her story. I wonder if they’ve started paying the HP writers yet?

  5. “90% of Whites Might be Racist”
    So? Whatcha gonna do about it? Sue us? Shame us into loving you? Fret over it like a little bitch? I know that blacks don’t like whites either but it doesn’t consume me with fear and self loathing. I don’t need their approval to live a happy life. And neither do they.

  6. Seems to me, if that is the case, that they would not want to live in white neighborhoods or send their kids to white schools or go trick or treating in white neighborhoods or shop at white stores or anything that has to do with racist white people. Yet, they get their panties in a wad if they are excluded from anything that white people do. Go figure…

  7. Zeba doesn’t really want to end racism. She just wants the black racists to be in power. Racism against whites is perfectly OK with her.

  8. If the author is going to come up with a load of horseshit, at least try to base it on some statistical relevance. 90%? C’mon, you know that’s impossible when the 80/20 rule exists everywhere, in every group. I’ll spell it out: 80% of whites are not racist while 20% are perceived inaccurately as being racist. There is a statistic irrelevant less than 0.001% who are actually racist.

  9. Stereotypes exist FOR A REASON.

    A behavior, look, history… move people to generalize.

  10. The SJWs get away with blatant racism by using the word “racist” whenever they’re being racist.

    Bad Trait: Being Racist

    Racism: Claiming all or most of an entire race of people has a bad trait.

    White people are a race.

    Saying 90% of white people are racist is saying that 90% of white people have a bad trait which is, in fact, textbook racism. But the SJW slime think that if the bad trait being tossed out is “racism” that doesn’t make the accusation racist. They’re wrong, as usual.

  11. Back at ya:

    There are many black people who mean right and in their hearts wanna do right. If 10,000 baboons were coming down that aisle now, and I had a door that I could shut, and in that 10,000, 1,000 meant right, 1,000 baboons didn’t want to shoot me, I knew they were good… Should I let all these baboons come down, hoping that that thousand get together and form a shield? Or should I just close the door and stay safe?

  12. What does the word “racist” mean these days? Employed? Bathed? Speaks normal English? Isn’t prone to violent outbursts? Not consumed with self hatred and envy? What?

  13. First of all ALL people are racist to varying degrees. Second of all there is nothing wrong with being racist. Third of all Liberals and their minions can go fuck themselves.

  14. Nah…We just would like to see you black skinned people to drop this tribal mentality, lack of personal accountibility, and (GASP!) Marry and commit to each other i.e. exercize social conservatism.
    You desire us to embrace your tribalism, which we see throughout history doesn’t work.
    If I’m “racist” for saying these things, I’ll wear it.

  15. So if she wants to sell a load of horseshit, maybe she shouldn’t use a 44 year old quote from someone who took a lot of blows to the head as some kind or relevant “wisdom”. And does she really think conditions for blacks haven’t improved since 1971?

  16. before you call me a racist, maybe you better define what you qualify as a “race”.

    then define racist for me so I know.

    then I will decide whether to kick your ass or not based on whether it’s an insult to my character or not.

    how’s that you pussy?

  17. He also refused to fight for America when he was drafted. He should have been deported long ago. It’s not like the son of a bitch didn’t like to fight, he just wasn’t going to fight for the country that gave him the opportunity to become a famous fighter.

  18. Cassius Clay / Muhammad Ali is also famously quoted as saying “Thank God my great grandaddy got on that boat”

  19. Well, if you think about it, 100% of negroes might be racist, and 110% of spicks (white and brown) are definitely racist …

    you could look it up …

  20. Everyone is rayciss,

    By the way it’s not color but culture than people really reject.

    I hate ghetto culture and refused to raise my family in it.

  21. Yep – but I have been almost randomly attacked by black men on 3 different occasions. The first time, I would have been raped and murdered if the sliding glass door on my balcony had not been locked and the “click” when he tried to open it woke me up. The second time, would have been raped and murdered, a black man I knew from work showed up at my house and was about to force his way in (knew I was a single parent) when my son (6’2″ football player – he didn’t know that part) walked out of another room and asked if there was a problem – and the guy turned and ran away as fast as he could. The third time was last summer when I was almost mugged going to my car after work. I heard him coming up fast behind me and turned around to confront him. I looked him straight in the eye and was going to kick him in the knee and break his leg – but I had done the unexpected, so instead he covered his face with his hands and ran to the side of the building to hide in a doorway and I kept walking back toward work.

  22. Well if the great Muhammad Ali said it, it must be true! I’ve been in general disagreement with this whole “whites are all racist” thing for years, but now that I’m hearing it from the Man himself, I guess I’m going to have to ditch all of my friends of different races and join the Klan. This is going to particularly suck for my black roommate…
