Here Comes the White Safety Patrol
Matthew Heimbach insists he’s not a racist. This comes as a surprise to his fellow students at Towson University, in the suburbs of Baltimore, where Matthew has formed a group called the White Student Union that advocates for “persons of European heritage”—what most of us call “white people.” It also comes as a surprise to the African American students who feel targeted by the night patrols the senior history major began conducting in March. The patrols target supposed “black predators,” Matthew wrote on the WSU’s website, citing (among others) a case in which an African American man pulled out a knife and his penis, and wagged both at a co-ed couple who were copulating in a parking garage. “White Southern men,” he wrote, “have long been called to defend their communities when law enforcement and the State seem unwilling to protect our people.”
Also surprised by Matthew’s claim that he’s not a racist is Duane Davis. “You are a fat, racist little bitch,” the scrappy, dreadlocked man told Matthew one sunny Tuesday this April. There was a rally going on, organized by the Student Government Association and the Black Student Union. In a field behind Duane and Matthew, about 100 students protested the White Student Union by reading unity-themed slam poetry from a microphone. When Matthew showed up on the edge of the crowd, a dozen protesters had come to confront him. Down the façade of a parking garage, a banner unfurled reading, wsu gtfo (translation: White Student Union Get the Fuck Out).
“There’s no need to insult me,” Matthew told Duane, who looked one wrong reply away from punching the 21-year-old.
“I’ve killed people,” Duane said. “In self-defense… But I’ve killed people.”
Matthew has the look of someone who’s been bullied his whole life: he puffs out his chest to hide an abundant belly, wears unfashionable drugstore spectacles, and on this day sported what vaguely resembled a Morrissey T-shirt.
“Who is that on your shirt?” Duane said, jabbing Matthew in the chest. The onlookers leaned in to hear the answer.
“Ian Smith,” Matthew said, before rattling off the biography of the former prime minister of Rhodesia, a white supremacist who resisted efforts to end white rule there in the 60s. “He’s one of my heroes.”
A svelte woman in a dashiki interrupted. “If you were dying and needed a heart transplant,” she asked, “would you accept one from a black person?”
what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works
no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.
Perfect metaphor is perfect.
Lbr, it’s not actually in the interest of game companies to not cater to multiple demographics because white nerd boys aren’t the only people with disposable income that would like to play video games. But for awhile they were. Sorry, video game hipsters. Games are getting too mainstream for you. There may be games out there that cater to something other than your very specific interests.
Well, also, keep in mind that video games up until very recently were a boutique industry. They were made by relatively small teams that were composed mainly of dudes. And those dudes made games that they wanted to play and had things they wanted to see. Ladies weren’t really “in” the industry (as in they haven’t been shot callers).
Now, however, video games are so complex and require so much time and investment that you can’t really make a top of the line title without corporate sponsorship. And that corporation wants to make money, they want a return on their investment, fuck the love of the medium.
Additionally, there’s a lot more ladies getting involved in the industry side of things, not as many as there needs to be for things to equalize just yet, but it’s happening.
But the culture war has already happened, everybody plays video games now. I know more girls with PS3’s than I know guys with PS3’s and they play them more than I do. The dude gamer, and by extension, the industry mentallity itself, hasn’t really caught up to this sea change. It’s all numbers, but no demographics.
So things’ll change, I’m not certain if it’s all for the better (re: corporate sponsorship), but it’ll settle soon. People are paying more attention because there’s more people to pay attention to what’s going on. You could get away with a lot of shit even 10 years ago, but not anymore.
I did the math and our blogs are worth 10 dollars each.

i’m reading some reviews of Random Access Memories and I’m thinking that none of these people haven’t actually listened to anything Daft Punk has released that’s not a single
also, they totally miss the point of the album
and they’re stupid
and i hate them
and they’re bad
and should feel bad
tumblr is teeming with absolute scumbags who validate each other’s masturbatory bullshit and i hope yahoo turns it into an online bingo platform for senior citizens
- Shaved a swastika into his girlfriend Stoya’s pubic hair
- Reportedly bought a ton of Nazi memorabilia, including “SS typewriters, swastika wall tiles he had installed in his home library ceiling with custom rugs made to match and Nazi government coat hangers owned by Adolf Hitler” as well as a handbag owned by Hitler’s girlfriend, Eva Braun.
- Reportedly assaulted and threatened to kill the family of a Spin Magazine editor who wrote an unfavorable article about him
- Reportedly forced a security guard to put his face in Manson’s crotch
- Reportedly wrapped his legs around the neck of a security guard and forced his crotch into the guard’s face while wearing only a leather thong and pantyhose
- Songs include “Rock n Roll N-word” (except he doesn’t say n-word, he says the actual word) and “Pretty As A Swastika”
I went looking to see if your fav is problematic has anything on Riff Raff (no, they don’t, i’m very disappointed), but I found this instead which is honestly amazing.
yahoo is deleting every blog with less than 100 followers
CEO quoted as saying “I hate nerds”
Is this a joke??? Like what the hell yahoo?? That is not okay! We aren’t nerd because we don’t have 100 followers. You aren’t a nerd for being on tumblr. Our nerdiness has nothing to do with tumblr, so leave us the hell alone.
we share this website with people like this
GET THOSE NERDS
