Being white is ok if you are white, but when you use your whiteness to oppress others and promote ideologies like fascism, then we need to have a discussion.
On the left is the Perussuomalaiset (PS)* Youth logo, which portrays an ideal of whiteness and ethnonationalism with fascist overtones.
I have always wondered about the exceptionally white image that MEP Laura Huhtasaari portrays. Hair dyed super white, blue eyes bursting out of her eye sockets and her very white skin enhanced with the help of makeup racist myths.
These are just a few images that the PS uses to attract voters with the help . of hashtags like #ItsOKtobeWhite and #ItsOKtobeChristian
Despite these manifestations of ethnowhiteness, there is one quote that left me guessing with a question by none other than former PS Youth second vice president Toni Jalonen.
Feeling sorry for himself because the world does not sympathize with his view of fascism, I wonder what Jalonen would say 10 years from now if he looked at the quote below.
I suspect he’d wonder what the hell he was saying and doing.
