Early this afternoon, I received a second response concerning the Casper Affair. It's from one of the (many) African-American Studies scholars who received one of Casper's (many) emails. I secured permission to reprint his response sans name, as he wishes to remain anonymous for the time being.
Dear Mr. Kaufman,
I apologize for not responding sooner, but in one of the umpteen emails describing your racial insensitivitiy you said you wanted us to respond seriously. So I read your Acephalous website and I looked at your picture, and I'll be damned if I can tell whether you're a white, black, Asian or any other kind of supremacist. Son, you have no head. Was the head you don't have a white head? Was it a black one? How am I supposed to decide whether you a white supremacist. For all I know, you could be my nigger.
I did search for this Casper person accusing you, and I hate to tell you, but the guy who called you a racist is a dead klansman. Friendly my black ass. I once read all these Southerners were gentlemen, and by all accounts they was plenty polite at their lynchings: "Is that rope tight enough, nigger?" "Are you having problems breathing, nigger?" They was plenty polite, alright. So on account of me not knowing whether you my nigger or not, and on account of the fact that you being accused of being a racist by the ghost of Otis Jebediah Cracker, IV, I have determined that it is only right and prudent that these and all future allegations be laughed out of my inbox, and your life, with a press of the delete key. I would guess my esteemed colleagues have already done the same.
P.S. If you my nigger, feel free to respond. If you ain't my nigger, you must append a lengthy contextualization of these words which just I wrote you. Can't just quote all my "niggers" back to me thinking my dumb dark brain will understand my own damn context, and I don't want to spend all next weekend writing myself letters or finding dead klansman to write them for me.
Next time someone cracks wise about humorless, oversensitive identitarian thinkers, you know where to link.
