Seymour Discourses with Ali G on Race Play.

Leading left light Richard Seymour responds to his critics on the “complex dynamics” and “consensual fantasies” of “race play”.

Interviewed by the Voice of Youth, Ali G, Seymour bares all, on the surely not unmediated race playing games.

Ali G: Respect for me main-man tonite, Mr Lenny Seymour, leader of the ISN posse.

Richard Seymour: And  filiations to your friends and gender-fuckers,

Ali G:  It sez here that ‘ those engaged in kink of this kink are ‘acting out’ performing a fantasy with highly elaborate codes and protocols that those engaged in it are metabolising the shit and grind of real life of real life and putting it to work in an erotic scenario’.

That’s a very sexist and racist way to talk about these bitches!

Richard Seymour: My  problem here with categorically denouncing ‘race play’ as sexist or racist is this. There are many oppressed people who are into this kind of kink.

Ali G: Dat’s no prozzie, dat’s me ho!

Richard Seymour: That’s just a version of Althusser’s ‘kneel and you shall believe’ schtick.

Ali G: And I put it to YOU… that you sucked off a ‘orse and there’s whole sections of de black bros who want nuffink to do with you.

Richard Seymour: Intersectionality  is perforce not oneiric  onanism, but oft is in diapason with concupiscence.

Ali G: Me saw this film called Barely Legal 3 and it was about these two naughty college girls, and them ‘adn’t done their ‘omework, and then as punishment they had to have a three-header with their supervisor, this teacher. Is that  intersectionality?

Richard Seymour: To me, the rape jokes and misogynistic language – all this is straightforward symbolic violence, ascriptive denigration, and obviously linked to punishment for transgression.


Race Play

An avant-garde, but increasingly accepted form of sexual role play in which people of different races consensually reject all political correctness (especially verbal) and propriety in favour of sexual pleasure and fulfilment.racist chic niggersex

Q: (furtively) “You into race play at all?”
A: “Yeah, call me yo NIGGER APE – makes monkey’s dick jump like crazy!

Hat tips: Howie’s Corner and the Charnel House.

  1. It’s a new one on me, but I don’t see why not. It’s a variety of sado-maschism and domination. If people choose to be treated like that because it excites them, that’s up to them, just as people who get a sexual charge out of washing womens’ feet or hiding in toilets to observe women defecating. (Although that last one may not be truely consensual.). Sex is not just about physical pleasure, there is a mental element to it: the thrill of transgression and being wicked. But seriously, never mind the assaults on the working class and the falling living and educational standards, just engage in anal masturbation (ie up their own arses). By the way, when did Harry’s Place discuss this? I don’t remember reading about it on there.

  2. Sue, if you are referring to me quoting Gene at HC, this was from private correspondence and seemed like a good point to end on when I was putting my post together. Apologies for any confusion.

  3. Howard, as I acknowledge, is the person from whom I first got this story of the year (hum hum hum).

    It was just too funny to miss doing another Ali G and Seymour tribute.

    Seymour’s efforts to recast himself as an expert on sexuality and gender studies are a real hoot!

  4. We are launching an International Campaign, “Defend Comrade Seymour“.

    Poor old puffer.

    If he likes a bit of slavery, hey, what’s wrong with that?

    Can’t be more discursively reasonable.

    There’s a new sex game: people dress up as “servants”, work for 18 hours a day for no pay and sleep in the cupboards of wealthy “owners”.

    It’s like fucking Narnia in those wardrobes!

  5. All of a sudden, the words of Yevgeny Zamyatin come to mind: ‘The whip has not yet been given its full due as an instrument of human progress. I know of no more potent means than the whip for raising man from all fours, from making him stop kneeling down before anything or anyone. I am not speaking, of course, of whips woven of leather thongs; I am speaking of whips woven of words, the whips of the Gogols, Swifts, Molières, Frances, the whips of irony, sarcasm, satire.’

    For some, so it seems, it is precisely the first kind of whip of which they are speaking, and I fear that the truly bizarre nature of this business will render ‘the whips of irony, sarcasm, satire’ somewhat hard-pressed to get their teeth (figuratively speaking) into it.

    I must say, that in 35 years of life on the left, this is about the weirdest faction fight I have ever seen. Nevertheless, by its very nature it does promise to be a rather entertaining one. Makes the Mad Maoists of Brixton look rather mild — and, unlike that episode, I’m very glad that I’m not at all qualified to be called up by the press as an expert witness here.

  7. Perhaps they should go back to Hegel: The Phenomenology of Mind: B — Self Consciousness:
    A: Independence and Dependence of Self-Consciousness: Lordship and Bondage

  8. The references are surely to de Sade,

    La Philosophie dans le boudoir, (Philosophy in the Bedroom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_in_the_Bedroom)

    As de Sade would have said,

    “ISN, encore un effort si vous voulez être révolutionnaires!”

  9. Comparing the actual electoral politics on most Western in addition to
    Eastern European union is like comparing hay day cheatsism along with post-hay time cheatsism.
    Nike Air Jordan one – Through All the Several years. I have seen is the beginning of the embraceable of
    disclosure of more info by our western government and a willingness
    to support more favorably ecological support and friendliness with the voting public.
