A few years ago I slowly
began to realize that I have been a victim of prejudice. It has
been occurring my whole life and somehow I didnt realize
it. Millions of others similar to myself have also suffered because
of it. It is the most widespread approved of prejudice in the
world today. Huge sums of money are created because of it. North
America is the center of it, but it happens everywhere. You have
probably contributed to it, along with millions of others., and
yet I am the first one that I know of who has spoken out against
Its a quiet prejudice. No one yells at us. Its a
strange prejudice, because we are judged inferior by our looks,
and yet the racists try to mimic our appearance. Our men, women,
and children are judged everyday because of it, and no one thinks
they are wrong, except us, and we do not say anything. We are
being nice, instead of good.
Ill give you a little quiz. Which of the following
is done everyday.
· Someone has a basketball game to play so they cover
themselves with brown shoe polish to be a better player.
· Someone has to do their taxes so they slant their eyes
to look Asian so that theyre able to do math better.
· Someone wants to look sexy or freaky so they dye their
hair yellow, because everyone knows Blondes are wacko.
The first two would be seen as prejudicial
against a group of people. The third example is done every day.
Its so common that its truth is not even doubted.
It is not even a thought to be wondered about. The stereotype
is as complete as any stereotype ever was.
Not only is it tolerated, but its accepted
and encouraged. Yet no woman or man dyes their hair yellow to
gain positive qualities. It is done to gain an image of bad qualities.
These Dye-jobs know what the image is. Prostitutes
look more sluttish, and their customers tell them they are. Bimbos
need it for that bimbo look. Homosexuals look more funish, Dopers
look more dopey, and Bitches look bitchier. Rednecks wives look
more redneck in their giant yellow boufounts. Transvestites always
slap on a yellow wig to look like the dye-job movie star theyre
mimicking. Then theres the goofy half yellow with black
roots look. I dont know what that is. Perhaps it's just
proof of membership in the club.
None of these people dye their hair to look more
intelligent. I smiled myself as I wrote that, and I have a pretty
high IQ. None of them are trying to promote the idea of Scandinavians
as better people or yellow hair as a sign of good character.
They are using it as a symbol for their own mental problems.
It is a symbol of a club they wish to join, while ignoring those
given it from birth. They use it to be a freak, while denying
that they are freaks.
Part of this attitude is the fault of Scandinavians.
We do nothing to promote this blond hair as a racial characteristic,
or to establish it , or even to be aware of ourselves as a racial
type. We are constantly told that we are just white,
both by ourselves and by other racial groups.
Racists love the word white. "The White Race
is this or that", they say, as if we gave them the power
of attorney to speak for all of us. They feel comforted to be
part of a big undetermined group called White. They swing it
like a club. They expect us all to be blindly on their side solely
because of skin shading. This makes other racists say "whites
are bad" as if we all got together to do the bad deeds of
I have some bad news for both of these teams. There
is no such thing as a white race! Furthermore, I have looked
on maps and in old atlases and there is no country called White,
and there never was. Nor was there a religion by that name.
How this idea got started is a good question. Certainly
it made no sense for Europeans to call each other white. They
are all whitish and yet they have been fighting each other for
thousands of years. They fought each other more than any other
Perhaps when the people from Europe had been in North
America for a while they had some reason to deny that they were
European, and their light skin proved to be the only common point
they could come up with. Then when darker skinned types showed
up there was no choice but to be prejudiced against them. Or
maybe it was the opposite. Perhaps the various non-european groups
came up with the name as a derogatory way to speak of their new
Here in North America there is no race, yet. So far
the people have just been on an extended camping trip away from
their ancestors home countries. Personally, I dont think
it ever will develop one. Modern society wont allow the
calm isolation needed for one to gel. 'White' is just a substitute.
Perhaps the white racists are just jealous of all those who have
a race to be part of. Denying their past has left them diminished.
I think we all need a past to give us some kind of
foundation. Italians know of their past, and a certain amount
of their language. So do Jews, Chinese, Egyptians, Africans,
and dozens of other races and cultures. For some reason we Scandinavians
have become so unknowing about our past.
If asked, all I knew was that about a thousand years
ago there were Vikings. They were all men. They rowed around
and had swords and had no home life, which was kind of funny
because they were always taking away women to somewhere. For
some reason the word got out that they glued cow horns to their
heads. One day they all disappeared and were never seen again.
You may be amazed that most of this is wrong. A little
research uncovered that there are females who had Viking ancestors,
and some of those ancestors were also women. These Norse people
had normal lives. Most were farmers. Their religion said nothing
about pillaging. Instead, it required that they fight evil here
on earth to get to Valhalla. They didnt disappear. Scandinavia
is plum full of them, and there are a few in other parts of the
You may find this strange if you have heard the official
version of Vikings. Remember though, that these history books
were written by their enemies, or victims, if you like. These
were rich people who had been obeyed from birth and did not like
outsiders dumping them on their asses. The stories they wrote
never told the Vikings side. The Norse did have a written language
called Runes. Unfortunately they did most of their writing on
wood, which rotted away over the centuries. Most of what we know
of them was retold verbally over the centuries, and I guess they
werent too interested in Public Relations.
Its interesting to note that all the stories
of the ancient Mediterranean cultures are Iliads and Odysseys,
full of heroes, while ancient Norse are just plunderers. Do you
really think an army invaded Troy and attacked it for 20 years
only to help some guy get his wife back? They were there to take
stuff home. The Vikings were the same. Only the official version
was different. I doubt that they were Evil. Im not saying
no women were taken, but I have a feeling that just like sports
groupies and authority groupies nowadays, there were plenty of
Viking groupies to choose from back then. Some people seem to
have an attraction to blondes.
Many things you know of in our world would sound
familiar to the Norse. Their religion had an underworld called
the Underworld, and Hel was in charge of it. Hel
was a beautiful woman at the top, turning to rotten flesh lower
down. She survived off of those who didnt die a noble death.
( If shes still around she must be pretty fat nowadays.)
Loki was full of lies and trickery. Despite constantly
doing evil he was never punished too harshly. He once made Thors'
wifes' hair fall out and had to replace it with living fine spun
gold, before Thor could kill him. Eventually he killed Balder,
the god of light and truth, and was banished. There, he wills
his evil into the hearts and minds of all people.
Probably, none of them thought cows horns were
any more scary than we do. ( Run! Its a bunch of cows with
swords! Aaaghh!! ) In fact, the cow horns idea is a modern prejudice,
not a historical one. It has only appeared in the last hundred
years, along with the spread of the dye-jobs.
Over fifty thousand English words came from Scandinavia,
including wife, and yegg, I mean egg. Four others your might
know are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. These are
days named after Norse gods. (I think the other days are named
after roman gods.) Strange that there is no Moses day or Jesus
day in our calendar. What kind of strange quirk made these names
the choice for the days of the week in a christian world? I wonder
if the other religions know they are honoring pagan gods?
Tuesday is Tyrs day, the god of war. Woden,
or Odin, is next. Hes the head god. He once had an adventure
to be able to see into the future, and then was dismayed to see
that Evil would eventually win the world from Good. Thor is the
god of thunder, and of comic book heroes, I think. Friday is
in honor of Freya, the goddess of love. This was probably the
origin of the phrase "Thank god its Freyday!!"
Old schoolbooks say the Vikings disappeared when
they turned Christian. Somehow, Christianity just instantly mellowed
them out, dude. Right. Just like all those other medieval Christians
like the Crusaders, Conquistadors, and Anglo-Saxons. Christianity
didnt seem to mellow any group since the 3rd century. So
did the Norse stop being Vikings or were they ever Vikings
to begin with?
If so, what happened to those people? A thousand
years ago Blond men were murderous savages, and yet now they
are weak, wimpy, cowardly, weird, freaks or faggots. Thats
quite a dramatic genetic change! Perhaps the originals were taken
away on a UFO and replaced with new variety bred for niceness.
Where did blond people come from in the first place?
Scientists say that the ancient Norse became blond
and blue eyed because they lived in the snow throughout an ice
age, and then in areas with long winters. Somehow the snow bleached
them. If that is true then how do they explain the North American
Indian, and the Inuit, and Sami, and the natives of Siberia?
They all lived through an ice age in a winter climate, and frankly,
I cant see the least bit of blond in them.
Is our coloring a genetic adaptation, or just a racial
trait? Asians have almond eyes and flatter faces.,
but what function does it serve? Does it help them with math?
No. Perhaps appearance can be deceiving.
As I said at the beginning, I became fully aware
of this slowly. Originally the extent of this prejudice wasnt
really apparent. Once in awhile somebody would tell a "blond
joke" right in front of me, barely concealing their joy
at the idiotic actions in the subject of their anecdote, and
then wonder at my blank response. But of course they didnt
mean me. Im a guy. All blond jokes are also assumed to
be about our women. This makes them sexist as well as racist.
Years later, once I started to look at it I realized that
these attitudes were spreading all over. They came over fax machines,
the radio, and in the newspaper. TV lives by them, in every show
on every channel. One columnist in the local Sun newspaper is
positively addicted to them, and he looks light haired himself.
Then, there came a period of a few months when I
was pounded on the head by repetitive instances. In a bar a waitress
forget my drink and said that she must have had a blond moment.
As she was brown haired I told her she must have had a brunette
moment instead, and she looked insulted for some reason. Soon
after I was in my car at an unusual time and heard the DJ say
that this weeks "blond moments contest" was about to
air. Contestants would phone in and tell how they did something
stupid, like a blond would do.
This was a blow to me that finally made me overcome
my inertia. I phoned around to government agencies to find out
who to complain to. I spoke to an East Indian and with an admittedly
trembling voice told him the story. He thought about it and said
it sounded racist to him, but not his department. If it was an
individual or printed matter that was one thing , but since it
came over the airwaves it was the Broadcast Standards Council
I needed. After phoning them and being held and shuffled around
they sent me the forms from one end of the country and I had
to send them to the capital at the other end.
In my complaint I pointed out several points mentioned
already along with my opinion that I doubted that people tell
blond jokes in Scandinavia. I pointed out that no one has lazy
African or sneaky Asian contests. I wondered about the effect
that this type of general attitude would have on blond kids,
especially the girls. Many millions of them are exposed to this
training daily. A blond girl might think about being a doctor
but the television and other media constantly tells her she has
to grow up to be a stupid slut. The same shows tell others how
to treat the blondes, and so soon everyone they meet follows
About a month later the response came from the radio
station. Basically they said that they didnt do it, and
they promise they wouldnt do it again, so please forget
the whole thing. They also said that they were only giving the
listeners a chance to laugh at themselves. Did they verify that
all the contestants were Scandinavian? If they werent,
then they were not laughing at themselves, they were trying to
win a contest prize in exchange for humiliating people born blond.
They get the profit while we get the burden.
It sounded as if they were blaming me for not having
a sense of humour. I wrote back to the BSC and said this and
asked rhetorically if Blacks laugh at nigger jokes, or if women
who are raped are at fault because they didnt want to enjoy
it when someone wanted to screw with them. The media equates
blondness with weirdness, and so the truly weird dye their hair
and thereby create a self-fulfilling proof to the media and the
world. Many middle age men think blond means bimbo and most bimbos
think blond means bimbo as well.
As this process was moving along the radio station
renamed the contest "embarrass yourself". People with
different ancestors must have wanted to show they were stupid
About this time I wrote to the newspaper and asked
them to stop with the blond jokes, or to rename them bleached-blondes,
or maybe columnists wife jokes. There was no response
and no change either. Perhaps they didnt want to insult
A few months passed. One day I was walking into a
washroom in a park when an early teen began his comedy routine
for his friends. When I came out I was dismayed to hear that
it consisted of nothing but blond jokes he had memorized. The
girl who laughed the most had dyed hair the color of a hi-liner.
The one who didnt was naturally light haired.
He continued on with this blond man standing right
in front of him. A few of the others picked up on this. Most
didnt. Finally I spoke up and tried to say calmly that
if the jokes were about Blacks or Jews it would be wrong to be
telling them, and that blond hair is the birthmark of people
too, no matter what the TV says. I should have also told him
that the best comedians make fun of themselves, not other people,
but it was my first time speaking out on the subject to a group,
and I was a little clouded.
As I turned to go there stood a full grown idiot
glaring at me. His hair was yellow on top and black underneath,
giving it the appearance of a used paintbrush. He must of heard
me speak and was looking at me as if I had insulted him. There
was a brief urge to bust him in the mouth, but I didnt
want the kids to think I was a weirdo or something. After I left,
did the kids think about what was said, or laugh at my back?
Soon after a letter came by courier. It was
six pages of decision by the Council. They repeated the whole
story and then quoted the Code of Ethics, Clause 2 (Human Rights)
Recognizing that every person has a right to
full and equal recognition and to enjoy certain fundamental rights
and freedoms, broadcasters shall endeavor to ensure, to the best
of their ability, that their programming contains no abusive
or discriminatory material or comment which is based on matters
of race, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, age, sex,
marital status or physical or mental handicap.
This sounded good to me so far. However they went on to
say that my complaint did not violate any of those things. Having
Scandinavian ancestors is not racial, national, or ethnic, or
a matter of color!
They went on to say that not all blondes are Scandinavian.
I suppose there are several European types that have blondes
amongst them. I could argue that these people all had Norse blood
in their past, but lets say theyre right. Still,
all people born blond were born blond, right? Why should they
be laughed at because of it?
Some Europeans are capable of getting a dark tan, yet they do
not become African. Many Black people have never been in Africa.
Does this refute that Africans are know by their skin color?
Can I call these people by racial slurs, since they are not African?
Is an African born in the states not a member of the black race?
Not all french speakers are French, and yet they say that speaking
French is proof of a culture.
They went on to say that hair color is not specifically
protected, and the nearest example was a ruling concerning homosexuals
stating that it was a "deeply personal characteristic that
is either unchangeable or changeable only at unacceptable personal
costs." I don't really see the meaning of this, but the
Council did not think this applied to blond hair either.
You may notice that homosexuals have been ruled more
rights under the law than my race! I did, just as I notice being
judged as one of them because I have blond hair. I mean, why
else would I have blond hair? I must be homosexual.
Homosexuals, which I see as a white boys club with
no ethnic or race connection, have given testimony that they
are special. Well, We have evidence to the same effect. Its
there on top of our heads! Genetic proof of our uniqueness! It
is a personal characteristic that cannot be changed without personal
I have the feeling that the council members are saying
that if I dont like how the dye-jobs have corrupted the
image of my race then I should dye my hair black to look like
the dye-jobs race. If that isnt government logic I dont
know what is. I like my ancestors and want to be part of their
ethnic origin. Besides, there really is no other honest choice,
The council then said having blond hair was an occupation
or profession. An occupation! I think they may be confusing Scandinavians
with the prostitutes they visit. If being blond is an occupation
then I am owed several decades backpay, because I have been doing
it for free. If any of you other blondes out there are being
paid please tell me what form to fill out. (The overtime will
be a killer!)
To refute these ridiculous decisions, I can think
of many examples of hair as an identifier. Do you know what group
uses black hair hidden by a small beanie type hat? How about
curly black hair, or straight black hair in braids with a feather?
Monks shave their heads to show they are in a particular group,
and soldiers get a pig shave for the same reason. Hair has been
used as a signifier for millenia. Yet most of the above are only
haircuts, not an appearance given from birth.
If the dye-jobs arent copying us then why did
they choose yellow hair? They could have said pink hair for prostitutes,
blue for bimbos, green for light hearted men, and so on. It isnt
random. They know the image of blondes covers all weirdness.
Our women are giggly slut bimbos, and the men are weak doper
fags. The dye-jobs can be as weird as they wanna be, and tell
themselves its the hair that doing it, not them.
The council finished up by ruling that nothing bad
had happened, and bolstered their point of view by pointing out
that the song Achtung Baby was not a nazi song. I
dont what that means. I would like to comment on this council
but Clause 2 says I cant make fun of the mentally handicapped.
So round 1 is over. Its open season for blond
jokes! They are now government approved and they have me to thank
for it! Blond people have no past and apparently have been hatched
in a laboratory or something. Silly me, thinking we were part
of the Human Race.
A few days later I had a pleasant surprise. There
was a small article on page C5 of a local newspaper. The Canadian
Press had picked up the result of my complaint and gave an eight
paragraph synopsis. They even tried to contact the radio station,
but no executives were available for comment. This was unexpected
and delightful. I realized that filing the complaint, and the
story in the paper, have at least spread the word to people who
havent thought of it before.
I can understand their desire to do nothing
about this. Nothing is always easier. Doing something is hard,
and you can easily see how big this thing has to get to be finished.
The dye-jobs are everywhere. Dye companies make fortunes off
of them. Hollywood is dye-job central. Politicians wives are
dye-jobs, and their hookers as well. They are in government offices
and businesses. Some probably work at the watchdogs where I sent
my complaint. Yellow hair is backed by big bucks. Yellow hair
is too big for the Regional Council to bark at.
Many years ago there used to be entertainment called
minstrel shows. In them, black faced performers did various comedy
and dancing routines. The truth is that none of them were actually
Blacks, partly because it was felt that Africans didnt
know how to act like proper blacks. They werent
able to portray the stereotype as everyone wanted to see. What
the dye-jobs are doing now is a yellow minstrel show, performing
the parts that no blonde person would do properly.
Its an odd prejudice really. The media always shows
blondes in a bad light, and yet millions of people want to dye
their hair to look like us. Is this a comment about society,
or people? Do they hate themselves as well as us?
In a way, they complementing us. By dyeing their hair
they are saying they wish they had our ancestors instead of theirs.
They think we are so much prettier than them they want to resemble
us. Our women are so much more pretty than theirs.We are so much
more talented than them they need to pretend they are us. They
are racists against their own race!
Then they get it all wrong and portray us with every bad
quality they had before the bleach. Dye-job women have the lowest
morals and the biggest mouths, which is exactly the opposite
of the genuine article. Then they become annoyed when the real
thing doesnt act like the copy. The image in the mirror
cant change their character, I guess. Perhaps they need
brain bleach instead.
Recently a motorcycle company came out with
a bike that has Freya on the side of it. (Besides being the goddess
of love, she is also head of the Valkyrs.) There she is with
long flowing hair, a youthful face, and cow horns coming out
of her skull. Hey guys, are you respecting or insulting her?
Why are you using a religious symbol to sell bikes? Oh well,
I suppose they are going to say it is the perfect bike for Friday.
By the way, be sure to wear your helmet. Valkyrie means chooser
of the dead, not fabulous babe.
Ive spoken to a few types of people about
this whole thing, and their support seems to be based on how
much their group dye their hair. East Indians are the most agreeable
to it. I have also never seen an East Indian with dyed hair.
They seem to be content with their ancestors. European based
types are the worst, and they dye the most. A few Asians do it,
and some North American Indians, but the next highest group is
the American Blacks. I find that strange, based on their own
history of racist discrimination.
When I started writing this down I went out into
the Internet to find anything similar. I didnt. A search
for Norse brings up Vikings. Vikings brings up
Norse. Scandinavia gives me vacation information. Blond
tells me how to dye my hair. I know others feel the same way,
so where are they?
Why havent we got any kind of lobbying going
on? Every tiny splinter group these days has organized themselves
to bend politicians ears, but not us. Where are we? Too timid?
Too stupid? We need to get something going. We have to spread
the word, then sue. Sure its whining, but its a Whiner
World these days. There are Rights to be won, and big bucks as
well. From the Hair Dye pushers to the Screen Actors Guild; who
portrays us as weirdos, all the worst offenders are loaded.
The spread of blond stereotyping coincides perfectly with the
rise of Hollywood. Their money has been made at our expense,
and we should tear it loose from them. Just like our ancestors,
we should take the only thing they love: Money.
Okay, all you blond haired people out there. Do you
realize what is happening? Are you being judged by the media
image instead of yourself? Should the dye-jobs continue to dictate
who we are? Have you been acting as you think blondes are supposed
to act or have you been altering your persona to veer far away
from any behavior remotely like the stereotype? Do you realize
that other people have been judging you because of the hair you
were born with? Its difficult for us to be identified as
a race when the dye-jobs may outnumber us.
Now, you Scandinavian people out there all over the world. Can
you see that you are part of a culture that is almost lost? Will
you make an effort to keep your ancestors alive? We are not "White"
and We are not European. We are an ethnic race as much as an
of the others, with our own quirks and prides. The dye-jobs and
their masters dont care about their ancestors, or ours.
So, to all the rest of you. Are you capable of seeing
what I am talking about? Do the dye jobs in your office outnumber
the Scandinavians? I know your personnel offices always have
some. They judge us when we apply for jobs. Can you see that
there is no such thing as a white race? The word is only a tool
for the racists. Can you see your guilt, and admit it? Will you
help or hinder.
Do you think I have been harsh? Have I said some
things that seem racist? Good. At least Ive caught your
attention. These ideas must have been said before by others,
but they must have been said to damn politely. If you have a
race so must I. Dye-jobs are no race, and have no culture. They
are a Product, and I can like products or hate them. I will say
whatever I want about them. I have been the victim of racism,
and Im sick of it.
