‘White Boy Summer’ Meme Denounced as Racist by Actual Racists

Usual suspects rattled by a silly marketing ploy.

Chet Hanks’ ‘White Boy Summer’ meme, which is essentially just a silly marketing ploy, is causing concern amongst leftists, many of whom are now claiming that the entire thing is a racist dog whistle that will embolden white supremacists.

The meme was launched last month by Chet Hanks, son of the Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, who told his Instagram followers in a video, “I just got this feeling man… it’s about to be a white boy summer.”

The meme is a twist of the Megan Thee Stallion song from 2019 Hot Girl Summer and Hanks immediately clarified that it has nothing to do with ethnicity.

“I’m not talking about Trump, Nascar-type white. I’m talking about me, (rappers) Jon B. Jack Harlow-type white boys, you know what I mean?” said Hanks.

He subsequently emphasized that he was trying to spread an anti-racist message, stating, “You know what’s not White Boy Summer… is having any ill will or prejudice towards anybody from a different background, race, walk of life than you.”

The rapper also laid out the “rules” for white boy summer, which included not harassing women, trying to stay sober and not getting in people’s faces with booze breath.

Despite his many clarifications, the usual suspects accused Hanks of racism anyway.

After he launched a line of merchandise featuring the words ‘White Boy Summer’, Hanks was accused of mimicking white supremacists because he used a Gothic-style font (yes in case you missed the memo, fonts are now racist too).

The claims were made despite Hanks wearing a ‘Stop Hate’ version of the merchandise in his official ‘White Boy Summer’ video (which primarily consists of the rapper dancing with twerking women, half of whom are black).

Left-wing newspaper the Guardian said the typography was “similar to the Fraktur fonts, which were used in Nazi Germany most prominently on the cover of Hitler’s Mein Kampf book.”

“Hmm unfortunately the merch looks aggressively racist,” said one Twitter user.

“Jesus. When I think of typefaces white people should avoid, anything remotely calligraphic/blackletter looking pops immediately to mind, especially if it’s going to include the word ‘White’,” added another.

Others said Hanks would attract support from the Proud Boys, a right-wing group that the media denounced as white supremacists despite it being led by a non-white person for years.

Guardian columnist Arwa Mahdawi is also worried that Hanks’ largely dopey exploits will fuel racial strife.

“After four years of Donald Trump emboldening white supremacists, I don’t think now is the time to be calling for a white boy summer,” she whined.

In reality, the fact that these people are so rattled by what is ostensibly a silly vacuous meme deployed to bolster a marketing gimmick tells you everything about the institutional anti-white hatred that now poisons the media and popular culture.

The people responsible for this divisive attitude are the actual racists.

Hanks can’t even refer to his own ethnicity in any other context than self-loathing and guilt without being accused of fueling racism.

Merely displaying a hint of relaxed confidence that he should be comfortable in his own skin while encouraging other races to feel the same is strictly forbidden by a society that mandates white people constantly engage themselves in moral self-flaggelation to atone for their supposed sins.

Clarkson Fights Back: Goes On Offensive Against Woke Take-over

If you haven’t signed the Free Speech Union’s petition urging the CEO of ITV not to fire Jeremy Clarkson, please do so now. Meanwhile, Clarkson has written a blistering attack on the woke takeover of Britain in today’s Sunday Times. Here’s how it begins:

My son came over for a father-and-son pre-football supper the other day, and as he fussed over the Aga, making a particularly fine stir fry, we laughed about what innocuous word had been banned that day and who’d been cancelled. And then, after a pause, he said with a solemn face, “You do know there’s a war going on, don’t you?”

He wasn’t talking about Ukraine. He was talking about a full-on left-wing campaign to unstitch and burn the fabric of Britain. And the genius is that no one really knows that what they’re doing is serious. We laugh as they change the name of the Sir Francis Drake Primary School to something less slavey. We think it’s all a big joke. But it isn’t.

Think about what typically happens in a military operation and then look what the woke left has done here. It’s seized control of our television and radio stations to such an extent that last week Sophie Raworth said, on the BBC News at Six, with a straight face, “And over now to our LGBT and diversity correspondent …”

And TV drama? Unaffected? Right, and when was the last time you saw a fictional police force hunting a gang of Muslim extremists? It’s always the far right. And it’s the same story in comedy. Say anything you like about Boris or Rishi and the laughter track is turned up to 11. Make a joke about she/him pronouns or Greta Thunberg and they’ll blow a piece of tumbleweed across the stage.

In sport we sometimes have three women doing the punditry at a men’s football match, and if anyone remarks on this on Twitter, they are immediately singled out for the india-rubber treatment. And who’s doing the erasing? Who’s making the rules? That’s just it. We don’t have a clue. What we do know is that, having taken control of the television stations, without a shot being fired, they turned their attention, like any conquering army, to the schools. Here they went fully Pol Pot, doing a comprehensive year-zero job on the curriculum so that kids would know their parents were all racists. Apart from those with “unconscious bias”. Who were racists as well.

You probably think, because you don’t know this war is going on, that when you drop little Johnny off at the school gates he’s going to learn the nine times table that day. No, he isn’t. He’s learning that he might actually be a girl, which is why there are probably tampon dispensers in the boys’ lavatories.

With all this in place, they set about the police, and here they’ve done a tremendous job. Because, so far as I can tell, almost all the officers in the Met — apart from the terrifying number of sexual perverts — are now more wide awake than a frightened fox.

When some young people with green hair glue themselves to the road, large numbers of officers are dispatched to stand around looking at them. And they are only ever removed from the tarmac if they promise to go immediately to the nearest art gallery and throw some soup at a painting.

Has Clarkson been red-pilled by his recent punishment beating at the hands of the progressive thought police?
