Skip to comments.DUKE PROFESSOR: WHITE PEOPLE ARE AS RACIST AS EVER
Posted on 09/30/2013 6:07:59 PM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi
Duke University sociology professor Eduardo Bonilla-Silva says white people are as racist as theyve ever been, its just modern, more insidious forms of racism have taken over the more overt forms of racism common in Americas past, The Dartmouth reports.
Bonilla-Silva made his argument Thursday in a guest lecture at the Ivy League Dartmouth College.
Bonilla-Silva argued when white people say things such as some of my best friends are black, or use the election of President Barack Obama to support the claim that America has moved beyond its racially tense past, or say they didnt personally own slaves they are just denying their own internal prejudices, what the educator calls sincere fictions, Bryn Morgan of The Dartmouth reports.
We must fight white supremacy, Bonilla-Silva said. The only way to remove racism in America is to remove systemic racism.
The North Carolina professor talked at length about his covert/evolved racism theory, claiming America is not post-racial this ideology is suave but deadly.
The title of the lecture was The Color of Color-Blindness: Whites Race Talk in Post-Racial America, according to the Dartmouth College website.
Post-racial arguments did not emerge in 2008 with the election of President Obama, a description of the guest lecture on the website states. White America has believed a version of post-racialism since the early 1980s. The bulk of the talk will revolve around the examination of color-blind racism or whites race talk in the contemporary period.
Bonilla-Silva, on his faculty Duke University webpage, states: In all my work, I contend that racism is fundamentally about racial domination, hence, racism is a collective and structural phenomenon in society.
The Dartmouth College lecture was cosponsored by the African and African-American Studies Program, and the Latin American, Latino and Caribbean Studies Program.

They name their school after a KKK Grand Wizard and have the balls to say this....../S
What a load of crap. Thanks to obama I am MORE racist than I've ever been.
This clown is one of the infamous Duke faculty “Gang of 88”.
The President is the most American hating President in our history.
Objecting to his policies that reflect his hatred, and his objectively unconstitutional efforts to destroy this country have NOTHING to do with his race.
I wonder if Eduardo is a life member of La Raza. I’ll bet he is. He talks like one of them.
I know of NO ONE in the 21st century who says anything as stupid as ‘some of my best friends are Black’. That went out in the 70s.
This man knows nothing of racism but thinks he is oh so aware. What a joke.
He seems to be convinced that people of the white race have certain undesirable racial traits and is teaching that point of view and disseminating it.
I’m old enough to remember when that would have been considered racist.
Obviously Eduardo doesn’t get out much.
I suppose he has no idea that by profiling people by the lack of melanin in their skin, he is RACIST, and doing the VERY THING he accuses “white” people of.
Get rid of this racist clown. He should not be teaching. Diversity is only great and grand as long as you are a Liberal and espouse Lefty views.
He sounds like a racist.
It looks like he is not one of your “typical white-Hispanics”.
In other words, we’ve moved from the real kind to the imaginary kind.
Eduardo, check out the closest mirror to find the next racist.
Since when is being Puerto Rican considered being a ‘person of color’? What a joke. A bachelor’s from a Puerto Rican university and a PhD from Univ Wisc Madison. Lord how much lefty crap can be rolled into one person. The Puerto Rican Cornell West.
He’s probably correct that most white people in his liberal circle of acquaintances are more racist than ever.
Gee, Is this the same school who’s team was accused of raping a black woman and the school abandoned the team. Yes, Duke sure pumps out some classy profs! IDIOT !
Even the white-Hispanics?
So if a black man believes in something like "Black Power" is he a racist?
