Racism: a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
And for the Left that superiority is Non-White. Though, in true Orwellian Doublethink that’s not the way they see it.
First, it claims to find racial differences in things like character and intelligence. Second, racism asserts the superiority of one race over another or others. Finally, it seeks to maintain that dominance through a complex system of beliefs, behaviors, use of language and policies. Racism ranges from the individual to the institutional level and reflects and enforces a pervasive view, in white dominated U.S. culture that people of color are inferior to whites. (White Anti-Racist Activism: A Personal Roadmap by Jennifer R. Holladay)
Non-Whites cannot be racists, you see. Only white people are racists. Which, is racist.
The so-called “white privilege” is racist because The Left looks at (and wants you to look at) and treat White People the same way they used to tried non-whites, especially blacks.
Demeaning, discounting, disrespect. They have contempt. The shaming. “How dare you…”
They say they most vile things with a smile. They indoctrinate you to believe your “privilege” of skin color somehow make you different and thus you must be held accountable for that difference because it is inbred, inherent, and wrong.
Sound like blacks back in the day.
It’s all about control, after all.
For The Left it is always about control. They must be in control of everyone and everything at all times and if they aren’t they want gain or regain that control.
So now, the big shame is being White. And you should bow down to them for that “privilege”. Thus, they have to indoctrinate the young that being white is evil.
This their stated idea of “diversity” and “inclusion”, to shame, disrespect, and exclude.
Inclusion is Exclusion. Diversity is bad. You need to bow down to their superiority or else.
Segregation of non-white is all the fashion these days. So 55 years after their parents and grandparents fought to desegregate schools in the name of “diversity” and “inclusion” it’s now “diversity” to be segregated so that non-white have their own “safe spaces” away from evil white people.
Shame on you for being White. You are inherently evil. A “white supremacist”. But to fulfill their authoritarian needs The Left now calls any white person who disagrees with them a “white supremacist” at some point. After all, since all white people are born racists that’s not much a leap.
So they must be taught to be “sensitive” to non-whites. To “tolerate” them because they are inherently evil.
This is disgusting evil in and of itself. But the sanctimony that The Left feels for doing this is part of their authoritarian drug needs. They feed off this sanctimony. It makes them feel good. So like any good drug addict they want to more of it and go to increasing lengths to get it.
Dear Jennifer again, an academic, you know…. 🙂
White Privilege: The Perks
White people receive all kinds of perks as a function of their skin privilege. Consider the following:
• When I cut my finger and go to my school or office’s first aid kit, the flesh-colored band-aid generally matches my skin tone.
OMG!! THE HORROR!!! Scarred for life!
• When I stay in a hotel, the complimentary shampoo generally works with the texture of my hair.
Really? That’s shampoo “racism”!!
• When I run to the store to buy pantyhose at the last minute, the ‘nude’ color generally appears nude on my legs.
Not anymore dearie.
• When I buy hair care products in a grocery store or drug store, my shampoos and conditioners are in the aisle and section labeled ‘hair care’ and not in a separate section for ‘ethnic products.’
What grocery store does she go to? Certaintly not any I have.
• I can purchase travel size bottles of my hair care products at most grocery or drug stores.
Again, what stores are YOU going to, dearie.
This is evidence? This pettiness taken to an extreme. Another great trait of the Left. It comes from Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.
Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.
And of course…
Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”
And The Left has a ball with Sanctimony. They thrive on it. They can’t live without it. They always need more of it.
Dear Jennifer, the white guilt ‘intellectual’:
• My skin color does not work against me in terms of how people perceive my financial responsibility, style of dress, public speaking skills, or job performance.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Oh, that’s right, quoting MLK is “racist”…silly me…
• People do not assume that I got where I am professionally because of my race (or because of affirmative action programs).
That would be your White Guilt ancestors in the 1960’s and 70’s who create that “advantage” for non-whites in your benevolence and “fairness” and “equality”. You created that perception now you say that creation makes white people racists. 😦
• Store security personnel or law enforcement officers do not harass me, pull me over or follow me because of my race.
Because you refuse to talk about black on black and minority crime which is very big problem. Not to mention you have kept the poor minorities poor by enslaving them economically, then blaming it on white people! 🙂
White privilege is a hidden and transparent preference that is often difficult to address. Only on closer inspection do we see how it creates a sense of entitlement, generates perks and advantages for white people and elevates our status in the world.
It’s not hidden anymore dearie. It is the Liberal cause celebe’ . It is all the rage (literally rage) on college campuses these days. And Liberal love bestowing a “sense of entitlement” on the chosen, as long as those chose adhere to their ideology and give them more power and influence.
It couldn’t be more transparent.
It couldn’t be more fashionable.
It couldn’t be more Politically Correct.
