An Open Letter to Justine Sacco

Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, December 23, 2013

. . . the latest victim of a PC lynch mob.

You’re not the only one.

Your tweet is on the front page of almost every media outlet in the world—and it has made you just the latest victim of the politically correct lynch mob.

You made a simple joke, and now you have lost your job and are the most hated person on the Internet.

It must be especially disappointing that the lynch mob includes your own father. I notice that he said he reared you in the United States to get away from the “racism” of South Africa. Of course, he’s not the only former South African who finds it easier to condemn racism from the safety of another country.

People who are close to you are denouncing you and calling your tweet unforgivable. Even if they don’t admit it, they’re doing it partly for the same reason your dad fled “his” country: fear. They are afraid that unless they denounce and scorn you they will be accused of “racism,” too.

Lots of people are sending you gloating messages, death threats, and obscenities. They are going to keep doing it no matter how much you beg for them to stop. Needless to say, none of them will be punished or even denounced. They will be applauded.

Let me send you something different: First, my deepest sympathy. This is agony you do not deserve. And now, let me send you some advice.

Bad news first: Your career in PR for major corporations is over. You could take sensitivity training and use your connections to get a TV special about how you came to terms with “racism.” You could grovel and get yelled at on a talk show. But it wouldn’t do any good. No company will take a chance with you. Corporations don’t care about people. They care about money.

But you have already experienced the worst that can happen—and you’re still here.

In a week, the likes of the Huffington Post and Gawker and every other outlet filled with prissy hysterics will be on to something even more trivial than your tweet. As for your day-to-day life, trust me: It will be OK. Normal people won’t care. And as for people who do—even if this includes your dad—if they care more about appearing virtuous in the eyes of people who despise them anyway, their opinions don’t matter.

You have been caught in the gears of a terrible machine. That machine is grinding down white people, because they are white. It isn’t because you are racist or are even think very much about race. Your politics, associations, or lifestyle don’t matter. You’re white. You’re “privileged,” and therefore, you deserve whatever is done to you, no matter how awful.

It’s being done pour encourager les autres. And you are right: These people are “monsters.” They take pleasure in your suffering, and for many of them, your suffering is justification enough.

But for others, the Two Minute Hate is driven by fear; cowards trumpet their moral superiority because they think if they throw you to the wolves, they will be spared. And maybe they will—for a while.

So I know it’s hard right now. It seems like your life is over. But it isn’t. And soon, you need to let that grief at the life you’ve left behind turn into rage. I promise you I was feeling it when I saw your cries for mercy and how they were ignored.

Of course, this still leaves you with the problem of how to survive, but you are not alone.

Lots of people are unceremoniously fired because America worships “diversity.” The reason can be an unguarded tweet. It can be a joke. It can be something entirely made up. At this point, when I hear about a “hate crime” on one of our hyper-PC college campuses, I assume it’s just another hoax.

You can survive outside their system. Tens of thousands of us are doing it each day, building networks, creating institutions, and forming a new world away from the screeching of fools, cowards, and outright enemies. So don’t give up.

There’s a positive side to this horrific experience. You have lost everything. But you are now free to do anything.

I hope you look at American Renaissance. I hope you use this time to delve into the forbidden truths of the Dark Enlightenment. Because you just got a personal introduction to the dark secret of this rotten society: White people are always wrong when it comes to race, no matter what they do, no matter what they think. That is why no one will come forward to defend or even comfort you.

It may be that your family hasn’t actually turned on you and it’s just putting on a show. I hope so. But if this isn’t a show, your family is doing you a terrible, terrible wrong.

I hope you will come to understand that the scary word race really just means an extended family, and that you are part of that family. We as whites share a common fate. As you just learned, your attackers want your blood because you are white. And every single white person who joined the mob could be tomorrow’s victim.

This is a horrible time for you. Humans are herd animals, and public humiliation is one of the most agonizing things we can experience. The Internet makes it easier to shame and humiliate people than ever before in history.

It will be hard, but you will survive the pain. And when you do, there will be a new you who can see and tell the truth. You can start a new life fighting the people who did this to you.

You didn’t deserve to have your life destroyed because of one silly tweet. You have the right to feel rage towards those who did it. You have the right to feel contempt towards the cuckolds and harpies who turned on you.

The worst thing about being white in a society obsessed with “diversity” is that when you most need someone, your co-workers, friends, and family run for cover.

That doesn’t happen for those of us who have seen the truth. Once you understand race, you can’t go back. Sometimes knowledge comes at a terrible cost, but once you have this knowledge, you are never alone.

And neither are you, Justine. Some day, I hope you will understand why this was done to you.  This website is a good place to start in what may the long process of understanding today’s world and how you, as a white person, fit into it.

I hope you come back stronger from this. I hope they don’t break you. I hope you fight back as best you can.

But even if you don’t, we will fight for you.

In solidarity as part of your extended family,

Gregory Hood

    I wrote on another site that Justine doesn’t have to worry too much. 90% of non-blacks on planet Earth are in agreement with her, albeit in secret.

    • M.

      Comments on the Daily Mail weren’t very comforting though. Most of them were mercilessly negative, openly schadenfreude.
      Although I do agree that most non-whites, even the most brainwashed in the most PCcratic societies still know what’s what on an instrinctive level.
      I’ll start believing liberals truly believe in diversity the day I hear that, those of them who can afford to do otherwise, willingly move into Diversity-majority neighborhoods.

      “90% of non-blacks on planet Earth are in agreement with her, albeit in secret.”
      That’s what’s so totally disgusting. We need the truth to be out.

      • Lance Combs

        What’s totally disgusting is those nose-rings the type of people who disagree with her wear.

  • Anna Tree

    This is a sum up of the story:
    Justine Sacco, formerly a PR executive for the Internet giant InterActive Corp., which owns popular websites like Match dot com, Dictionary dot com, and Vimeo, was fired over a tweet that came from her account on Friday that read: “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!”

    Today Sacco spoke to ABC News, saying, “My greatest concern was this statement reach South Africa first.” After sending her statement to South African newspaper The Star, Sacco shared the following apology:

    “Words cannot express how sorry I am, and how necessary it is for me to apologize to the people of South Africa, who I have offended due to a needless and careless tweet,” Sacco said. “There is an AIDS crisis taking place in this country, that we read about in America, but do not live with or face on a continuous basis. Unfortunately, it is terribly easy to be cavalier about an epidemic that one has never witnessed firsthand.

    “For being insensitive to this crisis — which does not discriminate by race, gender or sexual orientation, but which terrifies us all uniformly — and to the millions of people living with the virus, I am ashamed.

    “This is my father’s country, and I was born here. I cherish my ties to South Africa and my frequent visits, but I am in anguish knowing that my remarks have caused pain to so many people here; my family, friends and fellow South Africans. I am very sorry for the pain I caused.”

    • Anna Tree

      She was correct in her tweet but wrong about one thing: the fact that she is a white
      doesn’t make her safe! Traveling to Africa for a white IS dangerous, she can
      be murdered, raped and get AIDS.

      More than 40,000 whites murdered since the fall of apartheid.
      24,000 murders a year (only 170 during apartheid) 700,000 raped per year, a white woman would be a delicatesse.

      • Sloppo

        According to the Genocide Watch web site, the number of whites who are murdered in South Africa averages more than 20 per day since 1994 and more than 95% of those murders are committed by blacks. That makes an average of 19 black on white murders per day. If you multiply 365 days per year times 19 murders per day times 19 years, you should get 131,765 black on white murders since 1994. I know my methodology is relatively unscientific, but the 40,000 is way too conservative in my opinion.

    • Anna Tree

      Justine Sacco, Phil Robertson, Judge Edith Jones, Jason Richwine, Peter Brimelow and so many more, all accused of racism, but the attacks are aiming deeper, it’s freedom of speech that is under attack. And freedom of speech is freedom.

      “Nowadays, only mainstream freedom of speech is allowed. In other words,
      people are entitled to their opinion – if it’s the right opinion. If
      it’s not, they should be re-educated. Orwell himself couldn’t make up
      such double-speak.”

    • Harold James

      I don’t know why she apologized to Africa. No black African cares one way or another. Nor did they notice or even read about her tweet. A few in the black elite May be vaguely aware and possibly have felt a slight schadenfreude. But it was only momentary and passed away would a slight fart.

    • Lygeia

      Maybe this will have the unintended consequence of waking people up to the reality of black violence in South Africa.

  • Sloppo

    At least she didn’t say anything directly about the millions of black children who have HIV because black Africans believe that AIDS can be cured by raping virgin children. Everyone knows that a white person who mentions that practice is much more evil than the AIDS-infected black men who rape infants and toddlers.

  • bigone4u

    This open letter is the best thing about the tempest in a teapot I’ve read. By coincidence I posted a true Christmas story of anti-white racism, “America Kicks an Old Viking, but He Won’t Stay Down,” at blondegynocide(dot)wordpress(dot)com yesterday. I wrote under the my pen name Paladin Justice. The old man in my true story has suffered much worse than Ms. Sacco, but he remains proudly white and defiant, as we all should be. If you read it, have a handkerchief handy.

    As to Ms. Sacco, who is undoubtedly a lefty, she has one option that can win her back the support of the Cultural Marxists: Find the blackest, ugliest, gay, aids-infected African she can find, marry him, and give birth to his sprogs. Short of that, her career is over and she’ll be terrorized and demoniszed for the rest of her life unless she changes her name and has plastic surgery. America is a sick, putrid festering pile of dung and if we don’t gain some traction, we will be exterminated–literally.

    • smedley

      I have a feeling she would have married such a creature anyway, just to assuage her feelings of white guilt and privilege. Anytime a leftie is eaten alive by the left I realize there is hope.

      • AnalogMan

        I rather doubt it. I don’t know at what age she moved to America, but she is a White South African woman. She knows better.

        Her father, I infer, fled the horrors of Apartheid sometime after Apartheid stopped threatening him. I think he knows te score, but is just a typical hypocritical liberal coward. I live in South Africa. I’ve known many people like him. They agonise over the terrible moral atrocity that is Apartheid, and they fight to eliminate it, but they know darned well that the alternative is much worse. That’s why they leave – they’re afraid of their victory. He was never going to condemn his daughter to actually live with what he advocated for.

        I base this opinion on my impression that she genuinely never believed that her tweet was “offensive”. She has apologised; I’m sure that was partly a doomed attempt to get absolution, but also because she is genuinely sorry for having inadvertently offended some people. She probably accepts in good faith their complaint of offense. She’ll learn.

        I hope she sees this letter and reads it with an open mind.

  • D.B. Cooper

    The Salem Witch Trials eventually ended. When will this?

    • newscomments70

      It will end when we get up off our couches and stop them.

    • sbuffalonative

      It will end when people stop groveling and apologizing.

      While these people may have the best intentions, they naively fail to see that this is larger than their comment. The naively believe a simple ‘I’m sorry’ will suffice. They don’t understand that while they may have only pricked their finger, the sharks are tasting blood.

      Stop saying ‘sorry’. STOP rushing to give interviews!!! The LAST thing you should do is keep your name out there and give them more ammunition to use against you.

    • Alexandra1973

      Interesting thing about the Salem witch trials…it was Christians who died and the actual witches that got away.

      Sounds a lot like today. The real haters are the ones doing the witch hunts.

    • Laura Dilworth


  • DaveMed

    I hope you will come to understand that the scary word race really just means an extended family, and that you are part of that family.


  • So CAL Snowman

    “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m White.”

    I may have found a new tagline for all of my posts on the internet. Thank you very much Ms. Sacco you dumb lefty.

    • newscomments70

      How will being white save her from AIDS? What happens if she gets raped? White women are more likely to be a target for rape. The statement doesn’t make sense…silly liberal.

      • Sick of it

        We have some biological protection from HIV that other races do not. AIDS started spreading among whites mostly due to homosexual activity.

        • Terra Magnum Imperium

          Agreed, 10% Northern European Caucasians carry a mutation ^ 32
          of the CCR5 receptors on the white blood cells. 2 copies of this mutation give full immunity to HIV.

          • ShermanTMcCoy

            Now, Dat right Dere bees sum white priv-lidj, gnomesayin’?

          • Yancy Derringer

            My laugh of the day. Excellent. Thx.

      • So CAL Snowman

        Calm down my friend, its to inflame lefties, nothing more, nothing less.

        • newscomments70

          I was agreeing with you. I honestly believe her tweet was a Tim Wise style “white privilege” statement. It sounded like she was being anti-white, but it backfired on her.

  • IstvanIN

    I still can not see what was racist about her tweet. It wasn’t particularly funny, certainly contained a grain of truth, but racist? How??

    • M.

      She said “white”, “Africa”, and “AIDS”. That’s all it takes nowadays.

      • IstvanIN

        Actually all it takes is for some liberal to say what you said is racist. “Hello” is racist if the usual suspects say it is.

      • Tim_in_Indiana

        All it takes is to say the word “white” in anything but the most deprecating fashion to be called a “racist.”

    • Ograf

      The politically correct reason is that despite overwhelming proof that Africa is a hotbed of AIDS among blacks, We are supposed to pretend that it isn’t happening at all. Everything is wonderful since apartheid ended. Can’t you tell ?

    • AnalogMan

      She implied that being White was different. She’s right. That’s why I have hope for her.

      And yes, that’s racist. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

      • ThomasER916

        It’s racist in favor of whites therefore it’s good and true, which is why they hate it so much.

  • Eric Shun

    “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m White.”

    One could read this tweet as Sacco stating that she was going to africa and planned on having sex w/ an african and hoped that she didn’t get AIDS from that sexual encounter.

    • AnalogMan

      Or you could read it as saying that she couldn’t possibly get AIDS because, as a White woman, she would not be having any interaction with the AIDS-riddled blacks. That was my interpretation. Speaking as a White South African myself.

  • sbuffalonative

    I don’t know who this woman is. Should I? From the comments on the original post, this woman seems known to everyone except me. Is she so famous at her job that this became world-wide news? Or did she only become famous because of this tweet?

    A similar thing happened to Steve Martin:
    Steve Martin apologised for a racist joke he tweeted on Friday night.
    The comedian was fielding lighthearted questions from his Twitter followers about word usage, when someone asked: ‘Is this how you spell Lasonia (pasta)?’ Martin replied: ‘It depends. Are you in an African-American restaurant or at an Italian restaurant?’

    • M.

      She wasn’t famous. The media and the professional offended made her famous.

      • sbuffalonative

        Thank you. The attention being paid to her seems excessive for someone I’ve never heard of.

      • Fair Dinkum

        Correction, they made her notorious.

  • Nathanwartooth

    This tweet was all about how whites are privileged and don’t have to deal with AIDS.

    She is obviously a leftist cultural Marxist, but that didn’t stop the lynch mob from forming and misunderstanding what she wrote.

    How do I know this? If she was really a racist and meant this in a racist way, she would have NEVER tweeted it. Would any of you tweet something racist at your job with your real name? Heck no.

    Just another social justice warrior that the system turned on.

    Oh and the articles I read said that she had other “racist” tweets. No, she didn’t. The only thing kind of weird was that she said she had a dream about having sex with an autistic person. Oh no! I got me the vapors.

  • Chief Communications Director at 30?

    With her comment, I’ll guess it was a White ride to the top.

    • “Chief Communications Director” = She sent out Tweets.

      She probably had a 24 year old “Assistant Communications Director” (handled Facebook) and that person in turn had a 21 year “Deputy Assistant Communications Director” (handled Pinterest).

      Because…humanities degrees will open doors for you.

      • Was implying she got her job on a casting couch, with Whites.

  • dd121

    My sympathy is tempered by her groveling apology.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      Perhaps it’s just part of the process. One makes an innocent (or hell, not so innocent, what do I care?)comment, is roundly castigated, career destroyed, and in an attempt to salvage what’s left, the apologies and self-abnegation follow. When they are inefficacious, perhaps reality will set in, and she may be able to see the light. I hope she reads Mr. Hood’s sympathetic letter, and then decides to use whatever talents she has to strike back at those who she once thought her friends. For, more than anything else, she needs to recognize who her friends really are.

  • Xerxes22

    Does anyone know just when Justine Sacco’s father came to the U.S. and the real reason he left his homeland?

  • Ograf

    I also posted on another site that as I see it, giving the epidemic of AIDS in S.Africa, she is right. Of course liberals came on and told me there was no epidemic of Aids in South Africa, I replied, but for some unknown reason all my posts were deleted. Go figure

  • This is an excellent post defending Justine Sacco, but not the first I’ve read. That’s because I wrote one too, at my blog, Saber Point. I will link to this one.

  • I don’t condone nor condemn what she said, but she should stop apologizing for it. When enough people right or wrongly own what they say and stay dignified and not cower to the “race police” then and only then will they be defeated.

    The best example of this is Phil Robertson, he doesn’t give a damn what people or the world thinks of him. He made one public clarification about his statement and hasn’t said nothing about it again. I admire that in a person regardless of whether I agree/approve or not with his statement. He has maintained his dignity and stood his ground.

    The most pathetic and painful example is Paula Deen, who in my opinion destroyed herself not by what she said, but how she practically got down on her hands and knees and begged for forgiveness from the public, most of which don’t even care. She had nothing to apologize about especially for a 25 year old statement where she used an epithet to describe her mugger. All I am saying is that of you’re gonna die a public relations death, die with your boots on with your middle finger boldly out in front of you.

  • Lord_Steven_Regal

    This Sacco episode, like so many others, shows the madness and hysteria of the PC fanatics. Who is Justine Sacco? She’s a complete nobody that almost zero percent of the world’s population was aware of. Yet, almost instantly, she became reviled nearly worldwide because she Tweeted something “racist”. Oh my! The PC lunatics wait for somebody, anybody to say something “racist” so that they can do a modern day lynching. It’s disgusting, but for Justine’s own father to join in and crucify her so that he can be accepted among the lynch mob shows how powerful this cult is.

  • Lord_Steven_Regal

    By the way, Steve Martin is also being attacked for alleged racism. He was conducting a live chat when someone asked, Is this how you spell lasonia?” Martin replied, “It depends if you’re in an African-American neighborhood or an Italian restaurant.”

    An innocent, witty joke about lasagna or a fairly typical ghetto, black name like LaSonya of course was deemed racist. Within minutes Martin was groveling to try to save his career. You literally can’t joke black people, even with good intentions, without being crucified. It’s madness.

    • IstvanIN

      That was one thing I always liked about Michael Bloomberg. Whenever someone criticized one of his laws or proposals as being racist he never backed down. He just explained his reasoning and never apologized. Like the man or not, that was one thing I admired about him.

      • Lord_Steven_Regal

        Bloomberg get’s a bad rap, but he also went on a tirade essentially saying that of course you’re not going to get hired if you peak like a ghetto thug, so learn English not Ebonics.

  • pcmustgo

    Am I the only one who thinks her intentions were to be hipster left wing and she was making a comment about “white privilege” and the unfairness of the fact that AIDS mostly curses blacks and the whole thing was just taken out of context?

    • IstvanIN

      You could be right, and it backfired. If, and of course that is a big IF, you are correct it is nice to see an anti-white white have something backfire on them.

    • dd121

      Maybe, but I didn’t think her apology suggested she was coming from that place.

  • me

    Justine Sacco has benefitted from her connections within the ‘progressive’ elite, so I don’t really have a lot of sympathy for her. Also, her father has a lot of nerve, betraying his flesh and blood to the ‘god of diversity’, aka ‘Satan’. What a bastard! Also, what a despicable human being and White man, who knows better than most about the savage attack on the Boers in South Africa. Too bad it wasn’t he who is the target of the idiot diversity cult. Progressives always turn on their own, because no sacrifice is too great for the cult of diversity/globalism/Agenda 21. These people are mentally and spiritually sick.

  • JustSomeDude78

    “Tens of thousands of us are doing it each day, building networks, creating institutions, and forming a new world away from the screeching of fools, cowards, and outright enemies. So don’t give up.”

    I wish AmRen would expand more on this. Give specific examples.

    If that woman wants to move to Romania, I wouldn’t have a problem with it. Her father is an imbecile by the way .

    Can we stop using these terms ? There’s nothing dark about being a real human being who possesses minimum common sense ….

  • ViktorNN

    It’s obvious at this point that there’s a segment of the online world which keeps its eyes out for any appearance of “racist” wrongdoing by white people, and then if they find something, they jump all over that person and try to ruin their lives.

    It’s an odd mix of people who do this: plenty of angry black women, hostile hispanics, deranged feminists, homosexual white males, etc. If the average person could see what these people looked like in real life, they wouldn’t give these episodes a second thought.

    What motivates these freaks? Justice? Ha. That’s a joke.

    They hate white people. And they’ve found a way to destroy white people’s lives that has the cover of legitimacy i.e. it’s legal, businesses would rather cave than stick up for the accused, and these anti-whites have a network of online “news sites” which give them the veneer of credibiility. It’s not too much to describe them as lynch mobs. They want to hurt white people, and do it from behind the safety of their computer screens.

  • Maybe we need a ‘Freedom of Speech Union’ or something to support these people by downing our tools and refusing to work every so often. Nothing gets employers attention faster than losing them money – and it’s about time this PC nonsense started costing them.

  • Garrett Brown

    I sincerely hope she reads this, a very well written letter that I’m sure expresses everyone’s views here. The only things I feel are sadness and remorse for this young woman that she lives in such a sick and twisted country. Free speech is dead.

  • Garrett Brown

    I would be absolutely ashamed and disgusted to have a father like that. What a pathetic joke that “man” is to betray his own daughter.

  • IstvanIN

    Wait, why shouldn’t she have made a “stupid” comment? Why was her comment worth nation-wide condemnation and her life being turned upside down? Who hasn’t made a “stupid” comment? Period!

  • WR_the_realist

    I found Justine’s tweet to be mildly humorous. But then, I’m already one of the damned, here at Amren.

    Judge Edith Jones

  • Bill_der_Berg

    Surprisingly, a columnist in the MSM – The Sunday Times (of London) – had harsh things to say about Ms Sacco’s persecutors. For example “I am less repelled by her remark than by those of people using her to promote their own virtuousness. The purpose of the vast majority of her critics in the Twittersphere – aside from wallowing in the joy of feeling superior not just to another but to one on a first class air ticket – is to show that they are not racist; the more viciously they insult her, the more pure they can feel and demonstrate that fact to the world”.
