What guilt really has to be some sort of mental illness.
The idea that white people today should feel ashamed because of imperialism, slavery and other sins committed by their ancestors may seem ridiculous to sane people, but is frequently advanced in academia and the media. It’s influence can even be seen in public policy. The idea that white people owe something to non-whites everywhere is reflected in various forms of “positive discrimination” that favor non-whites and disadvantage more qualified white people, as well as open-door immigration policies and affirmative action.
Like anorexics convinced they are still obese despite being reduced to skin and bone, people suffering from white guilt are convinced that they are racist oppressors, despite being so anti-racist it’s cringeworthy. This is also despite living in developed countries where the only truly “systemic” racism is against white people, not caused by them.
We’ve truly reached peak idiocy, with some denying that hate crimes against white people are even possibly. Minorities can’t be racist because, “racism equals power plus privilege,” we’re told. That appears to be the only math equation the modern liberal is capable of computing.
Doctor Brittney Cooper, co- founder of the Crunk Feminist Collective blog, and an Assistant Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies at Rutgers University in New Jersey, has made some startling and, quite frankly, racist comments in a Salon opinion piece.
Her topic was the treatment of Sandra Bland, an African American woman who was arrested at a traffic stop in Waller County, Texas for failing to signal when changing lanes. It has been reported that she was found to have committed suicide in her cell by means of asphyxiation when she hung herself. It is this part of the story that has had the race-baiters of the country coming out of the woodwork again as they smell the possibility that a black person was mistreated at the hands of a white person.
They were there to scream injustice when Trayvon Martin was shot by George Zimmerman, ignoring the facts in the case that included Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend, Rachel Jeantel’s statements when she appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan. She was explaining how Trayvon Martin wasn’t trying to kill George Zimmerman, he was just, as his girlfriend put it, whooping George Zimmerman’s ass.
So yeah, not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. And here are her most recent comments:
“Black people, of every station, live everyday just one police encounter from the grave. Looking back over my encounters with police, it’s truly a wonder that I’m still in the land of the living.”
She has also taken that step even further to become a full blown racist and labeling all white people as oppressors.
“White people must begin to see themselves in the faces of the mostly white police officers who keep committing these atrocities against Black and Brown people. This will not stop until you recognize that you are them. These officers are your brothers and sisters… You are them. And they are you.”
You know, I think there’s a much more healthy mindset we can take to combat racism; to judge one not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.
Geez, why hasn’t anyone thought of that before?
