WordPress’ Terms Of Service point #2 states that:

a) Contributors to WordPress-hosted blogs are to ensure that their content is “not obscene, libelous or defamatory, hateful or racially or ethnically objectionable”, and that

b) Automattic (operators of WordPress) has the right to “refuse or remove any content that, in Automattic’s reasonable opinion, violates any Automattic policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable.”

But apparently they don’t consider stuffwhitepeoplelike – dot – wordpress – dot – com (which I refuse to link directly) to be the racism it obviously is, because they PROMOTE it as a “Top Blog” with “Hawt Posts”.

I dare someone to register:

  • stuffblackpeoplelike.wordpress.com
  • stuffjewishpeoplelike.wordpress.com
  • stuffmexicanpeoplelike.wordpress.com
  • stuffarabpeoplelike.wordpress.com
  • etc.

, and start posting the same lame and untrue stereotypes for those groups, just to listen to the uproar those would generate. Would you like to take bets as to whether CAIR, LULAC, NAACP, or ADL files the first lawsuit?


update: that racist site is currently the top blog at wordpress.



  1. If you object to wordpress hosting racist blogs, why do you continue to use their services? That’s like saying Walmart is bad for America but then you continue to shop there anyway.

  2. a) unlike a physical store, i’m not paying anything for it.

    b) this was halfway intended as satire anyway, just to point oou these kinds of hypocritical rallying cries – similar to:

    “i hate people who hate people!”
    “eradicate all intolerant people!”
    “all white people are racist!”
    “kill the warmongers!”
    etc., look for that kind of nonsense at any protest rally.

    c) how better to point out the problem than to use their own service?
