We conceive of racism as a set of institutional conditions of group inequality and an ideology of racial domination, in which the latter is characterized by a set of beliefs holding that the subordinate racial group is biologically or culturally inferior to the dominant racial group. These beliefs, in turn, are deployed to prescribe and legitimize society's discriminatory treatment of the subordinate group and to justify their lower status. source

The common definition of racism, and the one used by people who believe in reverse racism, is just "the belief that one race of people is better than another." Sure, that's the definition that comes up when you Google the term, but it's actually just the definition of racial prejudice. It's not the definition of racism used in scholarly discussion, or political debates, or by activists. The italicized definition at the top is an example of a definition that's actually used, that's actually correct.

I'd like to start by saying that this is just my personal opinion as to what a SJW is. I've come to notice that I have used SJW quite a bit on this spot and a few people don't know exactly what I mean by that. So I kind of thought it'd be useful to make this article explaining exactly what I mean when I use the term social justice warrior.
Before anything else; I intend no offense to anyone at all with this article. I don't hate social justice (not by any means), I think social justice is awesome. What I don't like is what some people turned the movement into.

First and foremost when I use SJW I am referring to the over the top an (usually) uninformed tumblr groups. I think there are two (very broad) types of social justice; there's social justice and social justice warriors.
Social justice is positive. It's progressive, these are your people who do feminism and such right; they fight for woman's rights without ripping on the male gender. They fight for women's rights without belittling a woman for actually liking the homemaker role. They're the ones who actually fight for racial equality as opposed to one race being superior to another. Social...

This is an open letter addressed to any rational person who identifies as a GamerGater.

GamerGate, you have a PR problem.

Like many unorganized movements that originate on the internet, you are falling apart in the public eye. And as you continue to blame your bad PR on the journalists you're criticizing, you only further prove their point and look like angry whiners (at best!), which only makes your PR problem worse. Even if every conspiracy you believe is correct, you will never get people to listen to you the way you are going about it now.

For one thing, you have a hateful reputation. Instead of offering up a simple "NUH UH" denial, own it. The first step to getting any rational person to listen to you is to admit that there are people in your group who are insane and dangerous. Do not offer me any logical fallacies by claiming "But no REAL GamerGater would--" No. These ARE real GamerGaters. They are in your movement. If you want to take the movement back, you need to actively condemn what they are doing and prove it with your actions.
