Re-Educating Whitey: What do the race-mongers really want?

Re-Educating Whitey: What do the race-mongers really want? By Mark Tapson.

Recently I called out a female “person of color” on Twitter for the blatant anti-white racism she was proudly exhibiting in her tweets. A white female ally of hers chimed in, chastising me for not knowing that “people of color can’t be racist.” I needed to educate myself about racism, she insisted. …

According to the left, in our white supremacist nation only whites can be racist because they control the culture’s power structures and therefore only they can impose “systemic racism.” Non-whites, conversely, are helpless victims of the system and therefore cannot be racist. This false oppressor/oppressed dynamic has been promoted so long and so effectively that open bigotry toward whites has reached peak cultural and political acceptability now, whereas any perceived racial “insensitivity” toward non-whites, such as the myth of cultural appropriation, incurs the unforgiving wrath of the internet mob (and of actual mobs). …

To help white oppressors educate themselves about their racism, the media lately has been helpfully providing lists of recommended reading with which to deprogram themselves. …

Ironically, some of the suggested titles in the aforementioned reading lists are about the civil rights movement of the 1960s, a movement that generally promoted color-blind racial equality. That is not the aim of today’s push for racial “justice,” which requires that we treat all races differently, that we all maintain a never-ending tribal consciousness and obsessively pick at the scabs of the past. Color-blindness – judging each other by the content of our character rather than our skin color – is now considered racism.

But it isn’t enough for whites to fill their bookshelves with contemporary works on racial oppression. They must also un-learn their whiteness by “de-colonizing” their bookshelves — ridding themselves of the toxic, narrow worldview of such literary giants as William Shakespeare and Winston Churchill….

The racial “homogeneity” of their personal library … is essentially “listening to an extension of your own voice on repeat.” It never seems to occur to progressives that reading only black authors — or female, or trans, or whatever identity politics category you choose — would produce the same limited worldview; only white authors are the problem. …

Racial tensions and racism itself are not eradicated by stoking more racial tensions and racism. That should go without saying, but we live in a time in which, to paraphrase Orwell, our first duty is to restate the obvious.

The political left isn’t interested in easing racial tensions or eradicating racism, however –– quite the opposite. The progressive race-mongers don’t want the racial equality and justice they incessantly demand. Their aim is to seize and hold all power. Their strategy is always to divide and conquer -– the haves against the have-nots, the patriarchy against women, whites against blacks. The left needs the people to buy into these Narratives, or it will have no power at all.

And with power comes good jobs, high status, and lots of stuff.
