  • 10 Ways White Liberals Perpetuate Racism

    ~snip~ Like many 40-something White liberals, I too assume I'm relatively open-minded and conscious of my white privilege. "I'm not a racist," I say to myself, when images of police brutality flash on the screen. "I'm not like those white people." Or am I? Like me, you probably voted for Barack Obama, were outraged by the verdicts in the Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. You even work hard to check your white privilege at the door when going to a #blacklivesmatter protest march. ~snip~ Like it or not, White superiority is well defended and protected. It may...

    Friday in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the National Urban League Conference, Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said President Barack Obama is “speaking the truth” on racial injustice. Bush said, “When President Obama says that ‘for too long we’ve been blind to the way past injustices continue to shape the present,’ he is speaking the truth. But we should be just as candid about our failures in addressing injustices of the more recent origin. In our cities we’ve got so many people that have never known anything but poverty is.

    Oxford Union Admits It Is 'Institutionally Racist' After Cocktail Row The historic Oxford Union debating society has passed a motion declaring itself “institutionally racist” after it promoted a “Colonial Comeback” cocktail at an event last week. A meeting was held to address the issue of the offensive cocktail, which was advertised on a poster showing black hands in chains during a recent debate over Britain making reparations to former colonies. During the meeting society treasurer Zuleyka Shahin proposed the motion, arguing that the cocktail was “symptomatic of a wider problem” of racism at the union. Co-chair of the Campaign for...

    The notion of checking one’s privilege — white, male, cisgendered, and otherwise — has caught on to the point of triggering the inevitable backlash. And while the right has always scoffed at the notion as being divisive and unhelpful, even when they agree with the idea of class war (sort of), the left is beginning to find it all a bit heckle-worthy too. Over at the heady and increasingly influential Jacobin, Connor Kilpatrick condemns the idea of privilege-checking as a deviation from issues of real power: Right now Americans are inundated with a variety of liberal politics that try to...

In her piece, “Privilege at The Beach,”—referencing the Long Beach area where the school resides—Jane Close Conoley, a white woman herself, asserts that “light skin color and high income levels may attract significant unearned privilege.” Those who qualify for such privilege, often unknowingly exert distrust and “lower expectations of behavior” on those of another skin color. “Those who are less affluent with darker skin or from...

One session insisted that whites can never be cured of their permanent racist attitudes. On March 30, Breitbart reported on the conference, now in its fifteenth year. Over these years, teachers have been told that whites have been pushing "white supremacy" on kids since the country was created, and that whites are so infused with racism that they aren't even cognizant of their crimes....

So of course it wasn’t hard to determine that Anderson Cooper was connected, in a familial way, to slavery.  His bloodline is tied to the Vanderbilts, one of the richest families in American history. Cooper’s great-great-grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt – who was also Cooper’s cousin through inbreeding – was a tycoon who built his wealth from shipping and railroads. He also owned plantations: one in particular was in Georgetown, S.C., where Michelle Robinson Obama’s ancestor Jim Robinson, who was born a slave...

    Racism may be a quality innate to humanity, with ostensibly smarter people simply hiding their racism better than others. A new study shows that white Americans with greater socioeconomic status — often perceived to be associated with greater intelligence and sophistication — espouse more egalitarian ideals compared to their lower echelon counterparts. But those Americans are just as likely to support the preservation of social and economic privilege, by rejecting fair housing and other policies relating to racial integration. Wodtke, a sociology doctoral candidate, analyzed data on racial attitudes from more than 20,000 white Americans participating in the nationally representative...

In fact, I certainly, like my fellow writer Rachel Samara, understand why white people wouldn't like Rachel. She's hard. She's black.

    There are several ways to describe the term ‘white guilt’ but this is perhaps the best and most succinct definition: White guilt is the individual or collective guilt often said to be felt by some white people for the racist treatment of people of color by whites both historically and presently. The left knows this is the achilles heal of otherwise principled men, which is why the ‘race card’ is so often played. In fact, white guilt is so insidious that it has helped to protect America’s ‘first black’ president (Bill Clinton notwithstanding) from accountability. As Rush Limbaugh points out,...

It was hard not to laugh​—​as many conservatives did​—​and the University of Minnesota-Duluth, which had originally supported the...

    Dr. Benjamin Carson is responding to the demonization of him by the liberal media by pointing out the obvious, that liberal media types, many if not most of whom are white, hold a special hatred for black conservatives. Nice Deb has links and the video:**snip**At Daily Kos, Dr.Carson has gone from hero to a “Political Mandingo” and Uncle Tom. That sounds pretty racist to me.

    Dr. Ben Carson on Tuesday blasted his critics for heat he’s taken recently over controversial remarks on gay marriage, calling his white liberal detractors “the most racist out there.” “They want to shut us up completely and that’s why the attacks against me have been so vicious,” Carson said on the Mark Levin radio show. “I represent an existential threat to them. They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me, they can’t find anything else to delegitimize me, so they take my words, misinterpret them, and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot.”...

    The Milwaukee Teacher’s Education Association is promoting a series of workshops to help heal teacher’s infected with racism. The “Healing Racism Workshops” provide college credit for educators who enroll in the class. “We have all been assigned a race by America’s pervasive socialization process,” read a flyer promoting the workshop. “This racial conditioning permeates the fabric of our inter-personal and inter-group relations, taking little account of laws and statutes, and reaching deep into the hearts and minds of individuals.” But critics of the class said it smacks of blame and victimization. “Here we go again,” said Kyle Olson, founder of...

    Here in Chicago, I regularly meet with a group of friends who call themselves “The Think Squad”; these are men and women who are prominent members of the black community in Hyde Park and the City’s south side. None of them supported Barack Obama’s presidential bid in 2008 but most begrudgingly voted for him because they freely admit race-pride was their motivating factor. These people knew Obama when he was a state senator and saw him do absolutely nothing for blacks in Chicago back then…and they similarly saw Obama do nothing for blacks (or any of his constituents in general)...

    **Exclusive** Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, 'Meet The VP' -- just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal. And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice! The timing of the announcement is now set for 'coming weeks'. MORE It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney's Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips. Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

    Recently released results from the Public Religion Research Institute holds seriously bad news for the long term viability of the Democrats and Barack Obama’s chances of reelection. The pollsters spoke to adults between the ages of 18 and 24 about their views on race relations and their findings were surprising. One of the questions they asked these young people centered on whether they thought the government paid too much attention to the complaints of Blacks and minorities in general. They were asked about the existence of reverse discrimination and if it was real and a problem is their view. These...

    MSNBC hosts agreed this weekend that white voters hold President Obama to a higher standard than his white predecessors because he is black. "[Obama] now has a specific record of governing," MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry said today on her show. "A record that, I contend, because of his race will be held to a much higher standard than it would have been for a white incumbent. Those white voters who found what they were looking for in 2008 will not necessarily be so enthusiastic in 2012." Alex Wagner, host of MSNBC's NOW, agreed. "I think race absolutely has to do with...

    Herman Cain supporters have accepted his narrative that he is an American success story. The question is, just how much of that "success" did he earn on his own? And is it really the Horatio Alger story we are led to believe? During the late '70s and the '80s, Herman Cain was an employee of big consumer product corporations, starting with Coca Cola. He was not an entrepreneur. He didn't take any risks with his own capital. Cain went from an entry-level analyst position to top management in one decade. He was made what would normally be called a regional...
  • The age of white guilt: and the disappearance of the black individual

    One day back in the late fifties, when I was ten or eleven years old, there was a moment when I experienced myself as an individual--as a separate consciousness--for the first time. I was walking home from the YMCA, which meant that I was passing out of the white Chicago suburb where the Y was located and crossing Halsted Street back into Phoenix, the tiny black suburb where I grew up. It was a languid summer afternoon, thick with the industrial-scented humidity of south Chicago that I can still smell and feel on my skin, though I sit today only...
