White Privilege

What would you think if your 8-year-old came home and told you that “white privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily”? You would have heard that at the recent 15th annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, attended by 2,500 public-school teachers, administrators and students from across the nation (http://tinyurl.com/lkoqj9b).

The average parent has no idea of the devious indoctrination going on in classrooms in many public schools. What follows are some of the lessons of the conference.

In one of the workshops, “Examining White Privilege and Building Foundations for Social Justice Thinking in the Elementary Classroom,” educators Rosemary Colt and Diana Reeves told how teachers can “insert social justice, anti-racist information” into their lessons that “even little kids” can understand.

Kim Radersma, a former high-school English teacher, hosted a session titled “Stories from the front lines of education: Confessions of a white, high school English teacher.” She said that teaching is a purely political act and that neutral people should “get the f— out of education.” (http://tinyurl.com/q5adt2d). She also explained: “Being a white person who does anti-racist work is like being an alcoholic. I will never be recovered by my alcoholism, to use the metaphor. I have to every day wake up and acknowledge that I am so deeply embedded with racist thoughts and notions and actions in my body that I have to choose every day to do anti-racist work and think in an anti-racist way” (http://tinyurl.com/q4z969q).

But the propaganda and lunacy go even deeper. Jacqueline Battalora, professor of sociology and criminal justice at Saint Xavier University, informed conference participants that “white people did not exist before 1681. Again, white people did not exist on planet earth until 1681″ (http://tinyurl.com/lkoqj9b). That’s truly incredible. If Professor Battalora is correct, how are we to identify William Shakespeare (1564), Sir Isaac Newton (1642), John Locke (1632), Leonardo da Vinci (1452) and especially dear Plato (428 B.C.)? Were these men people of color, or did they not exist?

John A. Powell, a University of California, Berkeley law professor, told his audience, “And right now, I’m going to suggest to you that race is driving almost everything that’s happening in the country.” He explained the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans by saying, “They took money away from protecting the levees because the levees were protecting black people.”

Stephanie Baran’s message to conference participants was that capitalism is the cause of racism in the world today. This adjunct professor at Kankakee Community College, who calls herself a vulgar Marxist, added that racism was invented in Colonial America by white capitalists as a tool to divide labor and keep the working class in their place.

Educator Paul Kivel explained what he sees as Christian hegemony, saying, “Very simply, I define it as the everyday pervasive, deep-seated and institutionalized dominance of Christian values, Christian institutions, leaders and Christians as a group, primarily for the benefit of Christian ruling elites.”

Speaker Leonard Zeskind — according to the MacIver Institute, which covered the event — explained that “the longer you are in the tea party the more racist you become.” He added, “Parents put their kids in private schools because they’re racist.”

University of Iowa Professor Adrien Wing gave some of her observations about white privilege, asking, “Does having a black president change that? Has it changed that? Unfortunately, it hasn’t. … (President Obama) ends up being the front man for the system. … He works for the master of the system of white privilege.”

I can’t imagine people being stupid enough to believe all that was said at the White Privilege Conference. There’s something else at work. I think it’s white guilt. That’s why, for almost three decades, there has appeared on my website a certificate of amnesty and pardon that I’ve granted to Americans of European ancestry in the hope that they stop feeling guilty and stop acting like fools (http://tinyurl.com/opd8vgd).

    Any individual, regardless of his race, creed, or gender, who subscribes to reason, has an independent mind, values his freedom of thought and action, and does not seek to impose his will or values by force or fraud on others, is “guilty” of having “white privilege.” It is the independent mind and its cognitive faculties that these “white privilege” agitators are propagating. However, It’s Kim Radersma and her ilk “should “get the f— out of education,” to use Mr. Williams’s quotation. They are dedicated destroyers of children’s minds, not “teachers.” In fact, the provocative term “white privilege” is simply a contrived euphemism for the Marxist term “class privilege.”

    Self hating whites. Best they get out of the field of education and cloister themselves away where they can nurture their inferiority complexes. No one regardless of race should be ashamed of achievement.

    “I will never be recovered by my alcoholism…”

    Um…I will never recover from my alcoholism…I will never recover from being an alcoholic…etc.

    This by a professor of English.

    Passive voice: The construction that lacks (or casts as secondary import) a causal agent.

    Racism happens to everyone who is Caucasian.

    I guess irony can be pretty ironic.

    “So there you are with your active verbs being gnawed away. Little by little and only occasionally at first, you start saying things like: ‘I am told that . . .’ and ‘This letter is being written because . . .’ This habit has subtle effects. For one thing, since passives always require more words than actives, anything you may happen to write is longer than it would have been [if written in the active voice]. You begin to suspect that you have a lot to say after all and that it’s probably rather important. The suspicion is all the stronger because what you write has begun to sound–well, sort of “official.” ‘Hmm,’ you say to yourself, ‘Fate may have cast my lot a bit below my proper station,’ or, more likely, ‘Hmm. My lot may have been cast by Fate a bit below my proper station.’ ” — Richard Mitchell, _Less Than Words Can Say_

    Love your stuff, Ed. But please: race, creed or sex.

    I’m begging ya. ;o)

    gen·der (jµn”d…r) n. Grammar. a. A grammatical category used in the analysis of nouns, pronouns, adjectives, and, in some languages, verbs that may be arbitrary or based on characteristics such as sex or animacy and that determines agreement with or selection of modifiers, referents, or grammatical forms.

    For instance, in Latin “praise” (lauda) is feminine, “war” (bellum) is neuter and “people” (populus) is masculine. English vocabulary has few such gender qualities, except the obvious. The point here is to be concerned with the usage of the words themselves, namely “gender” and “sex”:

    o We chose to learn the sex of our baby before birth, so we could decorate the nursery appropriately.

    Of course, any form of racism by blacks is, well, because of the racism of whites.

    “I’ll be honest,” Mitchell began. “I think what gets in my way sometimes is my own fear and that I don’t trust white people. I don’t trust white women and actually I’m afraid. I was telling one of my friends the other day that … I won’t even allow myself to be in the same office with a white woman without the door open … where somebody can see me…. My greatest fear sometimes is to be seen as something even though I am not that at all…. That I am a brutal, black rapist, out of control, angry… That if I am passionate, I am angry. That if I raise my voice (it means) I am about to hurt you.”

    Frankly, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I made the most important point in my comment about “white privilege” being a euphemism for “class privilege.” This insidious ideology is now being used to smother the minds of young students in Common Core.

    Academia is the 5th column undermining our social order of law subordinated to individual rights. Thank goodness there are men like Mr. Williams that remain as a counterbalance.

    The neoliberal’s multicultural ” White Privilege” hoax is a anti-white and anti-Christian racist and foreign religious subversive suckers game being played against white Anglo and Christian Americans whose founders and ancestors established and built this great Christian Constitutional Republic for their posterity. In reality, white and Christian Americans are now being played by their racist and foreign religious enemies who are seeking to rob and replace them with their own ideology, race, culture, creed, and form of govt. Our American society and institutions are now filled with racial exploiters, cultural, economic, and political subversives looking to create something new by replacing white and Christian Americans through forcing race and gender role reversals in our society, race mixing, and mass third world immigration…Treason!

    Just the usage of ‘gender’ in lieu of ‘sex.’ Nothing to get upset about, Ed; but the usage, I think, is important in the context of feminism–part of the force driving this issue.

    It is interesting that this concept of white privilege has emerged coincident with the publication of an article justifying reparations to the descendents of black slaves in The Atlantic. I find it ironic but useful to point out that even with the legacy of slavery and racism in the U.S. the present day descendents of African slaves have a better quality of life as a result. Compare the “plight” of any black U.S. citizen today with that of the residents of most any African nation and it is unquestionable blacks in the U.S. have more freedom and opportunity than had their descendents remained in Africa. I’m not justifying the historical practice of slavery. Rather, I’m pointing out the futility of claiming “white privelege” as a viable concept.

    I can’t decide whether you’re a brilliant troll operating under “Poe’s Law” or that you truly believe this ridiculousness and are a half-witted simpleton wearing a tinfoil hat which is cutting off the blood flow to your bum. Either way I’m entertained.

    Hat’s off to all the indoctrinated multicultural minded race mixing and mass immigrant loving progressive parrots who live in private or cultural vacuums through anti-white and anti-American TV, books, and still largely segregated White or Marano private communities here in the US thinking all ethnic cultures can live together in harmony under one roof. Killing of whites and Christians is taking place every day all over the world
    and is largely going unreported by our marano owned neoliberal mainstream media. Mentally handicapped, subversive, or delusional comes to mind.

    Many of our American sheeple who are seeing the world through many of the marano owned neoliberal mainstream media sites here in the US have currently been watching them air pro-Palestinian sound bytes during the recent Mideast conflict between secular Israel and orthodox Islam…why? To regain the lost trust of the American people? Or is something more nefarious taking place?

    What is a christian supposed to sound like? Are Christians supposed to just rollover and allow our domestic secular pagan or heathen foreign religious enemies to invade our Protestant institutions and our Christian based government auspices in order to rob us all blind while they pervert and destroy our heritage and posterity?

    Christ did say to love our enemies while trading our cloaks for swords…

    The problem lies in that when God spoke of Israel did he mean the land or the people who now dwell within? Or the spiritual house or branch of Israel who dwell in other lands? The people who now dwell in the lower part of Israel calling themselves Jews (Judah) are around 85% secular with little or no actual blood relation to the actual historic people of the Judah, Benjamin, or Levi tribes. God scattered Israel for their wickedness, so why would God now tell us to defend a wicked group of people just because they occupy the lower part of Israel?.

    You can disagree in-spite of the facts if you want but it doesn’t change the reality of were America is at and who put us here. Show me some facts as why you disagree? Last I checked Rothschild, Soros, and Rockefeller personally have trillions of our nations dollars that use to circulate within our communities, and they own or control our once protestant institutions and christian government. These Jewish elite marano own or control many of our business, health, and farming corporations, Hollywood, media, music industry, schools, and pulpits.The modern day secular and orthodox Sanhedrin or Jesuit marano here in the US are the people behind the multicultural theft and destruction of our white protestant and christian Republic…Google it…Learn the truth…

    I have watched my Protestant Republic get taken to the cleaners by
    secular pagan, relativistic heathen, and foreign religious enemy
    subversives infiltrating our once great Protestant institutions by
    claiming to be christian while facilitating an anti-Protestant, and
    anti-Christian multicultural agenda; Then Sheik Three Face Obama got
    into our govt by stating to be christian while his progressive liberal
    democrat party booed our God while removing him from their party
    platform. The Rino progressive liberal party just didn’t have balls
    enough to publicly come out of the same neoliberal anti-Christ closet
    giving the deceived two-party indoctrinated sheeple automatons who are
    being multiculturally robbed and subverted a false sense of hope and
    reality. Sheik Obama has now placed Islamic people into various
    departments within our govt while removing many of our top military
    commanders…Treason! We already have the subversive modern day
    so-called Jewish Sanhedrin central banksters with their commie/fascist
    corporatist henchmen owning or controlling most of our institutions,
    media, businesses, and government policy.

    History demonstrates that Protestants, Crypto-Jew Roman Catholics, Muslims, Judeans, Pagans, and Heathens of any kind or race cannot coexist under the same tent on the same piece of turf under the same form of govt without subverting, robbing, or killing each-other for dominance and control.

    Amnesty International: The right arm of the evil secular pagan Jewish elitist George Soros ( Rothschild henchman ) who is using multicultural subterfuge and subversion in facilitating a mass third world immigrant invasion and race mixing in order to rob and destroy our white protestant race, culture, posterity, and Republic. The Holy Wars Never Ended.

  • http://2012zt.wordpress.com/ Robert Campbell Sr.

    Now this is secular pagan or communist feminist ideology designed to convince women that protestant family life with a man was slavery and that raising kids was best left to the pagan state if you didn’t kill off your unborn first to avoid the slavery of raising children and saving money in becoming an authority over men and God with the power of the pagan state to back it up. Pagan social justice instead of the real meaningful power of equality found within God’s family structure.

  • http://2012zt.wordpress.com/ Robert Campbell Sr.

    Unfortunately, our cities and towns are being overrun with third world Hispanic immigrants while many of our once white christian girls race mix with Africans and other people of color and are being filled with the spirit of rebellion through pagan ideology, and heathen government dependence.

  • http://2012zt.wordpress.com/ Robert Campbell Sr.

    Whites nor Christians are minority yet, and this is why the crooks in govt have stepped up the third world invasion during the intentionally heightened Mideast conflict. Immigrants have their own brands of pagan or orthodox religion. In Judeo-Christian law it is forbidden to mix with foreign flesh or foreign religions why do you think we have the different races in the first place, and for so long? Pagans were always more prone to race mixing by incorporating people they conquered where in the Judeo-Christian culture they usually respected God’s boundaries and habitats set forth for each kind, or all enemies were killed by God’s command though some slaves were taken at times.

  • http://2012zt.wordpress.com/ Robert Campbell Sr.

    The christian imposters who have infiltrated most all of our once great
    Protestant and Judeo-Christian social and political institutions are
    endlessly working to rob and destroy our Republic. The fake christian
    sociopolitical subversives have used all avenues to deceptively
    facilitate a mass third world immigrant invasion and have forced
    minority and gender role reversals within our society in order to rob and
    destroy our White Christian Republic and our posterity.

    I strive for spiritual progress rather than perfection which will be
    achieved with the advent of Yahshua. The heart of man is continually
    evil, and our flesh is at enmity with God…The reason for grace through
    Christ’s sacrifice.

    I focus on the root of beliefs and ideology. I share God’s love and
    insight the way God wants me to share it. The family unite prescribed by
    God has built up many wealthy and powerful kingdoms or nations, and
    those that strayed were destroyed as history demonstrates.

    People in the West are acutely aware of the inequalities of the world — we in the West enjoy a material quality of life far better than billions of other people — and for a lot of Westerners, this presents a serious ethical problem.
    They feel guilty about it. They need to assuage their guilt in some way. But here is the key insight: They need to assuage their guilt in some way other than giving up the goodies, because even though they don’t like the inequality, they don’t want to give up the high quality of life.
