White Privilege Conference: Being white is like being an alcoholic
The Daily Caller ^ | April n1, 2014 | Robby Soave

Posted on 04/05/2014 3:43:19 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

The 15th annual National White Privilege Conference took place in Madison, Wisconsin, last week — subjecting attendees to informational sessions that explained why everything they did was inherently racist and oppressive.

The conference was funded in part by hotel tax revenues, the University of Wisconsin and the City of Madison — in other words, by taxpayer dollars. It was a colorful week, according to an account by the MacIver Institute

Kim Radersma, a former high school English teacher and current activist, hosted a session titled, “Stories from the front lines of education: Confessions of a white, high school English teacher.”

Radersma advised participants — who paid more than $400 for the privilege of hearing her rant about privilege — that teaching was a purely political act,

This is pretty astonishing. White privilege, to the degree it ever existed, ended in the 1950’s.

This was paid for in part by taxpayer money, which Libertarians would be especially appalled by.

This was funded in part by the University of Wisconsin and a number of high school teachers attended this and vowed to repeat the message to their students. Another reason to homeschool, right?

Reducing the spectrum of skin color to Black or White is a loser.

Reducing it to White or Not White is not a logical compression either. So, we have to show that as kids we used the "Flesh" crayon, not the "White" to COLOR in peeps in our drawings.

"Flesh" is now "Peach" in the Crayola pantheon, so I say we should move the discussion to "Peach" and "Not Peach".

There is always privilege in being part of the majority — whether racial, political, or {{insert your group here}}. I doubt whites will have white privilege in South Africa or in Zimbabwe.

White Privilege Conference: Being white is like being an alcoholic

So by inference then, is being Black like being a drug addict? Inquiring minds want to know, and just what is being, Hispanic,Latino like?

This is funny.

These tards are trapped in the 1970s. Guess that’s what happens when the Invasion is so far away.

All they have to do is move to central Los Angeles, won’t have to worry about “whit privilege”....more like “how do I save my white butt”

“Teaching is a political act, and you can’t choose to be neutral,” ( from the article)
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It is also a NON-neutral religious and cultural act.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to have a religiously, politically, and culturally neutral education. For this reason GOVERNMENT MUST GET OUT OF THE EDUCATION BUSINESS!!

No taxpayer should be forced ( under police threat) to pay for a government school that is godless in its worldview. Nor should any atheist be under police threat to fund a God-centered worldview. This is a First Amendment and freedom of conscience abomination!

Neither should any child be under police threat to attend a government school these indoctrination camps.

Yeah! I am shouting, jumping up and down, and having a fit.

The real message here is that all white people must die.

The only way to counter that is symmetrically.

The numbers will not be in their favor if that happens.

When white people give charity to black people, it’s because they are racist.

A white attendee shared an anecdote with participants: Her family donated school supplies to a disadvantaged minority family. The attendeed realized–and Radersma agreed–that her family had perpetrated racism against the minority family.

“It’s that savior mentality… ‘we need to think of them and give them our sympathy and our charity and our generosity,’ which is so demeaning to the people on the receiving end,” said Radersma. “It’s so demoralizing and disempowering to be receiving it.”

But making Whitey kiss our butts and taking their tax money is the best feeling in the world.

So, what is their “solution” to white privilege?

Are whites just supposed to flagellate themselves and open their wallets even more?

We are continually told NOT to profile, or catagorize

wouldn’t have standards at all.

If they feel so strongly about it, they could give away everything they own to non-whites,
then spend the rest of their lives serving non-whites.

Sounds like a good way to be finally rid of libtard, guilt-ridden, (D) voting, P.C. / diversh_tty embracing moonbats...

A philosophical foundation for legal precedence is needed to bring about the systematic stripping of rights from the last of the productive classes. Of course, any individual of any race that isn’t dependent on the dole will be swept up in the looting of private wealth and property that is to come.

White Privilege Conference: Being white is like being an alcoholic

I have never believed alcoholism is a disease, but for the same of argument, let's say it is. I assume then, that they mean being white is a disease, ergo, they want to wipe out the disease. I think many of them would like to do that.

I agree, we need to stop taking money from workers’ checks to subsidise multiple oow births, dysfunctional generational welfare, welfare to illegals, the whole kit and caboodle. Look how bad it's making them feel-knockout “games”, packs of “teens” attacking whites, and more. We need to stop expediting this by making them feel so bad by subsidising their whole lives.

Because when the Chinese take over, their (non-Chinese) status is going to go through the roof. They won’t know what “hierarchy” means until then. The Chinese elite don’t even show that much consideration for their own peasants.

Their proposed solution is to create an equal outcome for all. This will never be possible. Their will always be different outcomes due to natural intelligence advantages of some, more drive on the part of others, a combination of both advantages in a select group, and, in some instances, just good luck.
