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?
So..is this guy Hispanic Ku Klux Klan...or Black Ku Klux Klan...or Both? Could not figure out with the article
There’s no getting around it...people like the good professor are the enemies of this country. May he fall into a deep and sticky pit real soon.
while I understand your sentiment- I am betting what you really mean is you are more strongly against certain racial groups who TAKE ADVANTAGE of the system and then call YOU names...
Not the same.
Because I am betting you would NOT feel that way about all members of certain groups, especially good conservative ones like Walter Williams and Ted Cruz and Thomas Sowell
There is not a good word for hating all liberals... yet
I only became a racist in the last 5 years.
NBA is racist.
All about racial domination
A spainard calling someone racist. Let me guess he’s not a history instructor is he?
I think Eduardo would be a lot happier living in a Hispanic country somewhere. The dang crackahs in this country are making his life a living hell. He can’t get a good “job” or nothing.
Is “Bonilla” Eddie’s maiden name ?
I bet the professor is making some good coin pimpin’ the racist message.
The only thing about racism he cares about is race bating. Nothing that happens will ever change anything with these people. I don’t do anything different when I’m talking to a black man and don’t give crap what they think about racism. There will always be a percent of minorities who will use this as a excuse for being failures.....that is what makes them failures!!!
Sociology professors are as race obsessed as ever.
Combine that with the DNC, which has race obsession etched in its very DNA, and you would have to say that yes, among academics and Democrats racism is alive and well (and profitable).
ok, I admit it, I am a bigot. I discriminate a lot based on behavior. But I don’t give a damn what color your skin is or what hangs or doesn’t hang between someones legs.
now that is one bad a%$ graphic
Which white people? Italians? Latvians? Irish? German? Armenians? Don’t tell me this scumbag has grouped them all together! How racist is that?
“when white people say things such as some of my best friends are black,”
-I’ve never used that expression.
“or use the election of President Barack Obama to support the claim that America has moved beyond its racially tense past,”
-So, the fact that a black guy got elected and re-elected as President is not evidence that times have changed from the days of segregation and Jim Crow? Seriously?
“or say they didnt personally own slaves”
-I didn’t, and neither did my ancestors who came here long after the Civil War.
“they are just denying their own internal prejudices, what the educator calls ‘sincere fictions,’”
-I’m thinking “sincere fictions” would apply to most of this clown’s academic work.
“We must fight white supremacy, Bonilla-Silva said. The only way to remove racism in America is to remove systemic racism.”
-Yes, we must give B-S everything he demands for. Anything less is RACIST! /sarc
ME: DUKE PROFESSORS ARE AS DUMB AS EVER
Right. I really dislike obama.
how is it that any of these people are allowed to live and work in our country ?
“Systematic racism” is a liberal dog whistle code phrase for “white influence.” It has nothing to do with prejudice or discrimination or wrongful behavior on our behalf per se (although, when cases which fall under those categories arise, it is convenient to the leftist cause).
It is those who complain about “systematic racism” who are the biggest racists in the traditional sense. They cannot stand having a culture other than one defined by their own race dominant within a society. If they lived in Japan, the Japanese would be the systematic racists. If they lived in India, the Indians would be the systematic racists. And so on and so forth.
I have nothing against people of other races. I believe we are all created equal before God’s eyes and, as far as I’m concerned, if they’re willing to adapt to traditional American culture, they’re welcome here. However, that does not mean I will apologize for the nation created by my forebears and I will not be made to feel guilty for embracing and defending that culture I call my own. If such makes me a “systematic racist”, I guess I’ll just have to learn to be okay with that.
Yeah but you're even better looking too.
I’m not a racist, but I AM a moronist - can’t abide morons who are put in a position of leadership over young people. The harm they do is immense.
that makes you intelligent and good looking
Yup, me too. I now tell all of my black friends (hardy har) that I am more racist than I ever was in my life. I’m sick of slaving ridiculous hours and weekends, grifted for working hard, and then still getting blamed for every ail. I could still overlook the racism towards whites 20 years ago, but now it’s in our faces every day.
Isn’t that stereotyping?
After all the accusations for the last five years, all I can say at this point is... SO.
I no longer give a fig about it.
And they think we parents should send our teens to this school? Not a chance.
