Friedrich Nietzsche

“I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn it to it’s advantage.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche

“When we arrived at the couple’s apartment we began to explore right away. Josie and I were very anxious to examine every square inch of the place but Vincent was very cautious. “Guys I have a terrible feeling about these people and this place. We should escape or at least hide until we’re sure it’s safe” he would say. Josie on the other hand had no reservations whatsoever. “I think they’re nice. They pet me and let me smell them and they smell like really nice people.” Vincent darted his eyes toward his sister. “You think everyone is nice.” he said scornfully. “Everyone is nice!” she cheerfully responded. We explored every square inch of our new space avoiding when possible the humans.”…..

My name is William Chasterson. I’m a writer and a student of history. I was raised in the Midwest of the United States in a very conservative town of about 15,000 people. In my twenties I moved to New York which is where I’ve been for the past 15 years. After the first few years of culture shock I was finally able to settle into my environment and actually consider myself a New Yorker. For the past year however I’ve been living in the third world. I’m not going to mention the name of the country I moved to both for my own safety and because this is not a political blog. The purpose of this blog is to analyze the human psyche and to develop a theory I’ve been slowly formulating my entire life which is that we are all the same. No matter our race, gender, language, or economic status we are all of us equals. While this idea sounds cliche most people’s actions indicate that they don’t really believe it.

  1. I identify with you a little bit about being a “blerd”. What I fail to understand is our need to verbally segregate ourselves by making up new words to identify the “black version” of something. I’m a nerd. It’s one of my favorite candies and a word that already existed to describe socially awkward, intellectually advanced outcasts. That’s what I am. Who cares if I’m a black nerd, white nerd, Hispanic nerd or what have you? Yes, I’m a black woman and I don’t mind being identified as black but I don’t think it’s necessary to fuse the word black into every adjective you could use to describe me.
    I dunno. Just a sensitive issue with me.

      1. It’s funny that you refer to us living in a “pop culture” When pop is short for popular, meaning well liked by the majority.
        Subcultures are in categories of their own because they don’t fit into pop culture. Hence the categorization of the goths, geeks, and in our case nerds. So there already was a category for us.
        My point was, humans tend to put everyone into boxes. We’re obsessed with labeling everything.
        I’m already in a box labeled nerds (among other boxes but we can get into the complexities of the many facets to the individual personality another time). So, why would I then insert dividers into that box, thus making my space that much smaller?
        I honestly don’t see the point. What exactly is the difference between a nerd and a “blerd” that is so drastic that they need seperate labels? Skin color isn’t a good enough reason in my opinion.
        Racism comes in many forms and I find that to be one of them. But like I said, super touchy subject for me.

      2. Exactly. So, why in the world would we add to it? Why? Why give them one more label? And how can you blame the popular culture for giving labels to everything as if they’re solely responsible? Either the white, popular, majority came up with the term “blerd” or some some black nerds did.
        Either way, it makes about as much sense as it does for black people to continue to use the term “nigga” like that changes where it came from.
        We need more discussions like this in our communities (I used the plural sense because every single group of outcasts does this. We blame the pop culture masses for our misfortunes as outcasts not just blacks). I for one am sick to death of the majority dictating my life. And I’m even more tired of watching the results of it. Seeing the rest of my fellow outcasts just accepting it to the point where we don’t even wait for our oppressors to “put us in our place”, we do it to ourselves.
        If we all looked around for just a minute, we’d see we hold the power. We out number the “popular”. Without us, how would they be popular? How about instead of trying to reclaim negativity from the popular, we create our own positivity?
