Does The International "Color Run" Craze Implicitly Promote A Subtle Anti-White Racial Message?

The latest international craze is something called the "Color Run", which occurs in different cities on different dates. The first batch of runs took place on June 15th, and included Anchorage, Alaska. The Anchorage Daily News provides a gallery of 40 photos.

The Color Run, touted as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is billed as a unique paint race that purportedly celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community. The participants are asked to wear white at the starting line, and are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. At the finish line, there is a gigantic “Color Festival”, using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Organizers choose a suitable local charity in every city where the Color Run takes place. In Anchorage, where 15,000 participants showed up, the designated charity was the Boys & Girls Club of Alaska to support its after school programs. Some people think the 15,000 number is too high.

What's interesting is that everyone is instructed to show up in white, after which they get doused in all other colors EXCEPT white. Most people involved probably have not considered the unspoken message behind this. But the unspoken message, particularly when correlated with promotion of interracial intimacy in the culture, along with affirmative action which is inherently anti-white, and anti-white propaganda campaigns and rhetoric like white privilege doctrine and the infamous Un-Fair Campaign in Duluth, is that there is something wrong with being White, and that Whites should minimize their racial identity and symbolically "wash it away". Perhaps if everyone had been instructed to show up in black, Black civil rights advocates would have denounced it as "racist".

The Color Run may be totally innocuous in intent, but when placed in context with other more explicit anti-White measures worldwide, ought to be viewed with healthy skepticism.

I know its really not funny, but reading this makes me grin and shake my head.

So much anti-White garbage like this; of the more subtle and light-hearted variety.

Funny how you mention what if the runners had to show up in black and have it "washed away." Because that what so many blacks do and want to do. What with the aesthetic alterations they make- hair, skin, etc. And of course so many of them (mainly the males) choosing White and other non-black partners to reproduce with.
Even if they arent aware of it, many blacks do try to be "less black."

Despite the "black is beautiful" crap of the last 40 years or so, and blacks having plenty of their own media now in the 21st century, its still not really working.
