Is this serious or just a sick joke?

I seriously hope this is a joke (and even so, it would be a very sick one too).

Looks like a joke to me. For instance the picture on the mainpage:


This picture doesn't look like the thing a racist movement would put on it's mainpage, wasted white kids are not something to be proud of, not even for white supremacists.

Also, there's no actual download, and the only topic in the forum is about something that happened on another forum when they asked what race the developers of some program are.

Basically, looks like some kids who want attention to me.

Indeed, it looks like some trolls want attention.

Still, the important thing is to ignore the site, don't bother posting anything their forum or blog or getting worked up in public. Soon it will just whither and die.

Read their blog:

Some of you may know that ‘chomp’ is a command in Perl. In fact, it’s a very common command in Perl. It’s used in almost every program. What you may not know is that it is racist, and by using it, programmers around the world are pronouncing their irrational hatred of white people.

You see, what the chomp command actually does is this: it deletes all “unnecessary” white space. That’s right. Not black space. Not red space. Not even yellow space. White space. Larry Wall, ladies and gentlemen, is a bona fide racist. Chomp — it’s like the Holocaust, but for white people. Perl is an evil language, used to support evil causes.

It's a painfully obvious jest and, at the risk of sounding like a pig, incredibly funny.

Lighten up guys, it's like Dave Chapelle's 'Clayton Bigsby' character:



Edit:

And they turned the Ubuntu logo into a triskelion. Ridiculous!!

There's quite a few like that out there, actually.  Ubuntu Satanic Edition, for example.  http://ubuntusatanic.org/

"Software made by white people for white people."  Hmmm  Just how do they intend on filtering out all the open source software that wasn't developed completely by white people?  their distro may easily fit on a floppy.

WARNING:  Link below may be offensive to some, and probably Not Safe For Work, at least at some places of  work.

Yeah, another fake Linux distro, kind of like this one but not even remotely funny.

Yeah...kind of like how racists post propaganda on YouTube when the site was created partly by a Bangladeshi and a Chinese man.
