After that ridiculous White Man’s March a few weeks ago, people began posting about potential protesting signs on Twitter using the hashtag #WhiteManMarchProtestSigns and the results are absolutely hilarious. A few of my favorites below the fold.
And of course the classic-always a winner-
“WHAT ABOUT MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?1?1!!?!one!!!!11elenty!!?
I would have thought:
[Insert de-bunked conspiracy theory here].
WE SHALL OVERCOME ALL THE PRIVILEGES WE’VE BEEN GIVEN!
Or perhaps the classic:

I AM VERY WORRIED THAT YOU WILL TREAT ME AS BADLY AS I TREAT YOU
This from an article Andrew Sullivan blogged about this morning:
White Americans become more conservative when they’re told that whites might soon be a minority in the US, according to a new study in Psychological Science.
Why don’t we get the same amount of attention from the police as the darker skinned people? We want to feel safe and protected too!
That one from MarkusJ is awesome.
As a straight white (formerly) Protestant male, I approve of these messages.
#1 and #7 did me in.
Hehe, good stuff.
We didn’t take this land from the red skins just to hand it over to the black, brown, and yellow skins.
Here’s an interview with Kyle Hunt, the man behind the White Man March, conducted by Dave Schilling. This paragraph cracked me up:
I asked to speak to Kyle over the phone, but he refused after discovering that I write a weekly column on racial issues. He was gracious enough to respond to my questions over email anyway. He sent back answers (most of which came with handy-dandy links to White-pride websites as “evidence”), with my questions highlighted in what Kyle described as “Commie red.” For the sake of my readers’ eyeballs, I have changed them all back to black. Hope he doesn’t mind them being black.

I’m no mathematician, but 5/3 isn’t actually correct, is it?
My local college has four white students – all on the croquet team!
True story – my son went to a community college in Missouri twenty years ago that had 7 black students – all on the basketball team.
jameshanley, #14: I’m no mathematician, but 5/3 isn’t actually correct, is it?
I am a mathmematician (at least I teach college level math), and I think it is correct. If the intent of the joke is what I think it is (1 black person = 3/5 white person means that 5/3 black person = 1 white person).
On the other hand, I’ve been sleep deprived since the end of spring break, so I offer no warranties.
What do we want?
WHITE HISTORY MONTH!
When do we want it?
ALL YEAR ROUND!
“What do we want?
A return to a better time. A time when women were quiet, blacks were property and queers didn’t exist. AMEN!”
I know it’s not short and pithy, but I suspect it’s fairly accurate.
