Skip to comments.Ferguson isnít about black rage against cops. Itís white rage against progress.

When we look back on what happened in Ferguson, Mo., during the summer of 2014, it will be easy to think of it as yet one more episode of black rage ignited by yet another police killing of an unarmed African American male. But that has it precisely backward. What weve actually seen is the latest outbreak of white rage. Sure, it is cloaked in the niceties of law and order, but it is rage nonetheless.
Protests and looting naturally capture attention. But the real rage smolders in meetings where officials redraw precincts to dilute African American voting strength or seek to slash the government payrolls that have long served as sources of black employment. It goes virtually unnoticed, however, because white rage doesnt have to take to the streets and face rubber bullets to be heard. Instead, white rage carries an aura of respectability and has access to the courts, police, legislatures and governors, who cast its efforts as noble, though they are actually driven by the most ignoble motivations.
White rage recurs in American history. It exploded after the Civil War, erupted again to undermine the Supreme Courts Brown v. Board of Education decision and took on its latest incarnation with Barack Obamas ascent to the White House. For every action of African American advancement, theres a reaction, a backlash.
The Norths victory in the Civil War did not bring peace. Instead, emancipation brought white resentment that the good ol days of black subjugation were over. Legislatures throughout the South scrambled to reinscribe white supremacy and restore the aura of legitimacy that the anti-slavery campaign had tarnished. Lawmakers in several states created the Black Codes, which effectively criminalized blackness, sanctioned forced labor and undermined every tenet of democracy....

Carol Anderson is an associate professor of African American studies and history at Emory University and a public voices fellow with the Op-Ed Project. She is the author of Bourgeois Radicals: The NAACP and the Struggle for Colonial Liberation, 1941-1960.
Rap “music” and thuggery is NOT progress.
how do retarded morons get professorships?
Otherwise, we be gonna bust some caps on dat @ss fer sure pat-nar!
Affirmative action, the same way they get to become president.
Lord, that's funny.
Never heard welfare quite referred to that way!
But there are some white male profs who are just as idiotic .
The crying rantings of a child, cowering behind the skirts of anything handy. “Whites may be lawful and orderly, but ...”
The only thing missing is a hairpiece.
What a crick of crap.
No, she’s citing the fact that blacks are wa-a-a-a-a-y overrepresented in the federal, state and local bureaucracy/civil service and derive their “middle-classness” from that. Welfare is another subject. Of course, if all you do all day at work is loaf, how is that so different from being on welfare?
Crock-what a crock of crap.
Police officers don't draw voting precinct boundaries. In fact, Republicans cooperate with blacks to draw majority-minority districts that elect blacks. They do it because they want more black legislators. We do it because it packs a lot of Democrats in one district.
Government payrolls slashed? Under Obama? You have to be dumber than dishwater to think that's the case.
But then, she didn't get a college education. She got a degree in ethnic studies.
omg, you actually READ some of it .she is dumber than even I thought.
And that’s saying something .
Carol Anderson is apparently so ignorant that she doesn't know about "majority minority" districts that were instituted by foolish leftists just like her.
I was going to post a game for people to guess how she formed her agenda....
She’s frickin tenured and still butchin...
Dream on sister.
As long as you burn down the ghettos in your delusional quest for "Just Us" and kill 94% of other blacks, you barely get a yawn out of white America.
But know this. We do expect a time When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence. And when that time comes and you venture out of your slums and into the 'burbs; you will then experience a true measure of white rage.
Why does Carol straighten her hair ala white folk?
Oh, barf! This poor, aggrieved (and vastly overpaid, I'm sure) professor ought to know that her home state here has been gerrymandered in such a way as to guarantee the election of more black officials than any impartial apportionment would allow. And she should also know - or remember the next time she stands in line at some government office - that public service today is a joke: our featherbedded government offices are staffed by incompetents and malcontents who can hardly bother to stop watching computer porn long enough to wait on those they allegedly serve.
Further proof that being a college professor does not require intelligence.. A political agenda to the left of center is very important however.............
She teaches African American Studies.
That says it all.
Some of these people are complete idiots.
I’m surprised a person this dumb can actually string two sentences together. It’s not about their color, lady. It’s all about the way they act.
black thugs robbing cigars and attacking police is regressive, not progressive.
A black woman making such suggestions is also racist regression. The view from her ebony tower is obscured by her being a professional negro
This professor is more proof that in addition to not being worth the investment, a modern non-technical college "education" only makes you stupider.
I stopped listening to black folks.
officials redraw precincts to dilute African American voting strength
The Pubbies are only too happy to draw districts to ensure Blacks win. That is what allowed them to keep control of the House in 2012 even though they did not win the popular vote in the House elections either.
If Emory had a football team, it should be the Whining Victims.
Stupidest comment on Ferguson so far. Even Al Sharpton isn’t this effing stupid.
She sees progress as thugs looting convenience stores in thier nieghborhoods, domestic violence drugs alcohol abuse single parent homes, fatherless homes, gang violence,no one wants to work, generational entitlements, burning down thier own communities for some free beer liquor and food. This is white rage because we see progress. They will never look within where the problem lies
More than 20% of the Black working population over 16 years old are employees of the federal, state, or local government which is just over 5% higher than the national average. On the other end a much smaller percentage of African Americans are self-employed (3.6%) than the national average of 6.2%.
Among the major race and ethnicity groups, Hispanics continued to have the highest labor force participation rate (68.5 percent) in 2008, while the participation rate for blacks was the lowest (63.7 percent). The participation rates for whites (66.3 percent) and Asians (67.0 percent) were roughly midway between the rates for blacks and Hispanics, continuing a long-term pattern.
“But there are some white male profs who are just as idiotic .”
Yeah, there sure is. This white twit surfaced in an earlier post. She’s pushing “transitional justice,” which is a new code phrase for reparations.
Hey!! Where is the “MEGA HURL” alert?!?
The title doesn’t do that for you?
Transitional justice? OMG, Orwell undershot his predictions ..
What Can A Degree In AAS Do For You
A person with a degree in African American Studies can be anything under the sun. The following organizations look for people with the interdisciplinary skills and knowledge gained by African American Studies majors.
Black History and Civil Rights Facilities Look for students with degrees in African American Studies.
Museums that feature African American art, music or theater displays offer opportunities for African American Studies majors who are qualified to supervise the development of their galleries, displays and exhibits. Employment opportunities with the federal government are open to those with degrees in African American Studies. One example is the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department.
Non-Profits For some graduates with a degree in African American Studies the most important lesson they learn in their four years of study is that there remain large sections of society where African Americans and other minorities live in poverty. They need assistance and direction to help them to unlock their potential, make use of government entitlement programs, and find the education and employment that can empower them and bring them into the mainstream of society.
Communication Media With a degree in African American studies students will have developed writing and speaking proficiency for careers at television stations, radio talk shows and newspapers. The unique perspective that graduates with a degree in African American Studies can bring to daily news stories, art, music, films, theater, museum exhibits, sports and of course inter-racial events provides a much valued voice for organizations hoping to appeal to a diverse audience. Access to such positions is often highly competitive but a graduate with a degree in African American Studies does have a resume edge.
“All of my great grandfathers fought for the Union Army.”
Mine were all starving in Ireland so why the heck should I pay reparations?
Well.. no it's not. That matches the wanton lies that benefit the race-grievance industries and the ideologues of the left.
Face facts folks. Abe will explain from "the other side."
If you could first know where you are and whither you are tending, you could better judge what to do and how to do it. You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.
The question today is either the opponents of statism will arrest the further spread of it and place it on course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become permanent.
Have you no tendency to the latter condition?
Let anyone who doubts carefully contemplate that now almost complete legal combination piece of machinery, so to speak compounded of the Republican Party hands-across-the-aisle doctrine and the dreadful actions among statism's chief architects.
Be prepared for a music stoppage in October.
