Let’s talk about race…… the one sure way to lose friends and readers.
Yes, we keep trying to put race behind us, but it’s shoved in our face at every turn. If we look away we’re cowards for not facing it openly and honestly, [and] if we respond, we’re boors by the mere fact of responding.
Talk of race has been arranged so dissent is not merely dissent, but good evidence of something unspeakable. It’s one of those rigged conversations where any decent person is expected to display good will by conceding the issue from the outset. So we remain silent, intimidated, actually, hoping the bad stuff goes away. Or at least away from us. And there’s the problem.
It’s not going away, it’s getting worse, and it’s not just getting worse on its own, it’s getting worse because there are people who are making it worse, in fact, doing it for a living. Which brings us to white privilege, a cerebral septicemia showing how much worse things can become when [race] hustlers take the field uncontested.
“With their infernal racial set-asides, racial quotas, and race norming, liberals share many of the (KKK) Klan’s premises. The Klan sees the world in terms of race and ethnicity. So do liberals! Indeed, liberals and white supremacists are the only people left in America who are neurotically obsessed with race. Conservatives champion a color-blind society” — Ann Coulter
Upon first hearing the phrase white studies, from which the notion of white privilege depends, one could be excused for thinking it one of those promotional things, like an old-tyme travelogue, perhaps referring to a people’s history of building successful lives and civilizations from nearly nothing, of a willingness and a capacity to plan for the future rather than living from one windfall to the next, of preferring order and civility to violent confrontation, of the inclination to accept responsibility for their own actions and learn from it rather than blame others and learn nothing except how to blame others, of how they believe it proper to maintain the lives even of those won’t do for themselves along with the ones who actually can’t.
Heady stuff. An easy three credits. Perhaps we could believe white privilege to be the latitude a grateful humanity bestows on the bringers of civilization and science and two-ply toilet paper. A one-time ten miles an hour over the limit, say.
No, no. White Privilege, according to guru Peggy MacIntosh in her standard lecture, White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack, is “an invisible package of unearned assets which I can count on cashing in each day.”
[“Unearned assets”?? Let’s look back to United States in 1946 and before, to see how these “unearned assets” were actually EARNED through hard work!]

“White Privilege” says Whites are pulled, against their will if need be, into a life of ease by exploiting nonwhites, this system has been in place for so long most Whites are unaware of their unearned benefits so Whites should voluntarily relinquish any property beyond what’s needed for subsistence, and eagerly exclude themselves from any notion of equality with NON-whites. Finally, Whites have no legitimate self-interest and mandatory state-sponsored re-education offers the best chance for partial absolution. Miss Peggy just happens to have the required re-education handy, “here’s my card Grasshoppah, call my service, we’ll talk.”
White Privilege activist Noel Ignatiev, an admitted member of the Communist Party USA and a university professor, puts it more succinctly when he teaches “treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity”, (his words) and insists we “abolish” the White race. When called on it, he backpedals with fine-sounding words about what he really meant, it’s all symbolic you see, just for shock value you understand. His meaning is clear enough upon first hearing.
“The goal of ABOLISHING the WHITE RACE is on its face SO DESIRABLE that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition, other than from committed white supremacists. Make no mistake about it, we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as ‘the WHITE RACE’ is destroyed – not ‘deconstructed’ but DESTROYED.”- Jewish studies professor, Dr Noel Ignatiev
[What’s the percentage (%) of WHITE people on Earth? Answer.]
How did it get to this? Perhaps in small part because schools no longer teach the deprivation tens of millions of families suffered for the entirety of the 1930s, known as the Great Depression when the larger part of the population were ‘poor white trash‘ and treated accordingly. >to Full Article
