It started with the all the fanboy posts about the new movie Black Panther, which then made me wonder if the character Black Panther was a BLM supporter, his name is quite similar to the Black Panther Party and I have seen quite a bit of Black on White unprovoked violence, and anecdotally very recently I was attacked by a Black man in Detroit for laying on the horn after he cut me the fuck off, he reached in my car to snag my cell phone as I tried to dial the cops, he then started yanking with all his fat ass to snap the front pass. window, but he gave up after the window didn't break. I was extremely scared, never put into such a situation I kind of froze up. My 9mm was behind the passenger seat, and he was basically between me and my only defense, I now keep the gun at the ready when I enter the City of Detroit.
So it begins with this...
Title: I never assume irrational behaviors in other characters (except Hulk)
After much explaining why I felt this way, I was banned from /r/AdviceAnimals for reason, "racism"
I then started doing research to refine my position because I was compelled to do so: my study focused on finding raw video evidence of Black on White racial prejudice, specifically physical violence. Being objective and always trying to be 1-step ahead of the opposition viewpoint, I tried searching for White on Black physically violent racism. I COULD NOT FIND ONE LEGIT VIDEO in the USA. Of course there are old poor white people, upset and use the word Nigger; that is the extent of the racism, using the word Nigger. Some of the videos even show the upset White people kind of look around or lower their voice to say Nigger lolol. (Note, after about 8 hours of research, I found 56 B on W videos and only 6 W on B videos, 2 of which are just white ladies spitting.)
I started second guessing this finding, didn't believe it, so I started asking around about it with the assumption someone would unload a bunch of relevant evidence and then I can go on with life knowing there are equally Black and White fucktards running around being actual racists because they are acting on their feelings instead of just expressing them. Calling me a Chink is one thing, Calling me a Chink and punching me for it is another...Chink was my "Nigger" word, because I am Korean not fucking Chinese get it right (I use to get upset about this in elementary school, I make fun of this as an adult for being upset over a single word).
Asking for a logical explanation from the source aka Black subs, I was banned immediately by /u/ogun73 (we'll get to them in a minute).
Example post title for the BlackFellas post, being as civil as I can here: Knowledge seeking mission, I can't find raw video of unprovoked physical violence perpetrated by white racists. I find numerous examples of the contrary, so I am trying to understand why this is.
Gentlemen, I have indeed watched many white racist compilation videos which are disgusting and vile to know that this still exists today. However, I haven't found raw physical violence against blacks. Instead I am finding alledged and explicit racial prejudice against white folks perpetrated by black folks.
What gives? I am totally biased, but this seems too bad to be true, so I am questioning my observation.
I chose youtube specifically because it is the most popular video sharing platform and it is newer content 2006+. I am looking for raw anecdotes, which Youtube specializes in. I am also categorizing words (verbal racial prejudice) versus actions (violent racial prejudice); both are very bad. What I am finding is a disturbing imbalance between what I am being told (wide-spread white racial prejudice against blacks) and what I am finding (seemingly wide-spread black racial prejudice against whites). Black smartphone ownership rate is the highest among all races in the US.
One theory so far I can think of is all instances of white racist violence (2006+) results in murder, like that piece of garbage mental patient shooting up the church. Murderous mental patients are not very representative of the white population though.
Police Brutality is also not representative of the white population. The topic of Police brutality is an important point to consider, but here I am focused on raw video anecdotes of wide-spread white racism, in particular violent racist actions.
No big surprise I got banned.
What was surprising was the conduct of u/ogun73 who moderates all of the forums I was banned from and more. What was surprising was the vile behavior and extreme-bigotry of this particular moderator going unchecked. With another account (I got 3-day banned), I posted asking about some abusive ogun73 comments and if they violate site rules. r/ReportBadModerators r/AskModerators r/ModHelp r/Help all removed my post.
After this I started looking into r/ogun73 more and seemingly struck a goldmine of bigotry and hatred; so here is a post I was using to try and expose them, which kept getting removed and I just gave up:
What I am observing is the employment of divisive, power-tripping narcissistic types of leaders to administrate one-sided narratives on socially sensitive topics (ie. race). We can also describe them as employing extreme-bigotry, where people with differing opinions (of any level) are attacked personally and banned without discourse or civility. Even if the poster is mistaken or misinformed or rude, they are treated very poorly, which only entrenches opposing views when faced with this behavior. This is anti-productive in all regards, unless the desired product is social division.
/u/ogun73 is currently moderator of:
Here is a statement to help to understand ogun73 virtues:
A general formula is to take some stereotypical white subculture, and extrapolate that subculture as representative of all whites.
ogun73 responds and writes:
I have many issues with this tactic.
First,it conflates white supremacy (racism) with bigotry (racism). These are just not the same thing, nor do they have the same effects.
Two, being shitty because other people are shitty does not in any way make things better. It just makes more things shitty.
Three, advocating white stereotypes to combat racism just doesn't seem to make any intuitive sense to me. If the goal is to end systemic oppression, then our actions need to be defined as such. As Audre Lorde said, "[T]he master's tools will never dismantle the master's house."
and another ogun73 comment about their virtues:
Adopting a defensive/combative attitude does not does not go in the plus column when I'm evaluating whether a posts stays or not.
An anecdote or two is one thing, I am just trying to show bigotry and derision is not isolated, but the modus operandi:

Judging by the farther-right than me posts I have been coming across on Voat in addition to the explicit denouncement of bad moderators, I have a feeling I won't run into any problems here expressing my ideas and observations.
