What anti-racism should look like


Anti-racism, like social justice, marriage equality, or reproductive health, is a good thing. Anti-racism is good.  So is social justice.  Marriage equality could be good, too.  Reproductive health.  Who would be against it?

But we all know these are political buzz phrases used by the Left to mean, well, what the Left says they mean on any given day:  Anti-white racism, Marxist inspired leftwing political activism, sexual amorality, and pro-abortion advocacy.  Mantras that must be repeated or be deemed an enemy of the Left. 

In the video above, however, we have a wonderful explanation for why the discrimination against whites, the judgementalism against whites, the condemnation of whites simply for being white, all promoted in the name of anti-racism, is every bit as racist as anything the Nazis pulled in the 1930s.  What the young man says here is authentic anti-racism, and the type that should be embraced every bit as much as we would embrace anti-Nazism.  Sadly, that is not the case among far too many, including those who otherwise see this for what it is.  

Let's face it.  There is little to suggest that those embracing this latest incarnation of racism today would have done any different in the Jim Crow South or Germany in the 30s and 40s.  Sorry, but that's the fact of the matter.  It takes nothing to stand up to the sins of the past, but sometimes everything to stand up to the sins of the present.  Failure to stand up against the sins of the powerful today is probably all the proof you need to know you would have failed the same way in the past.  

Bonus points, by the way, for watching the segment of the video showing various racist screeds that include white people, most likely liberal white people.  The white liberal sanctification of demographic self hate and masochism is a virtue that is unique among the woes of humanity, I will say that.  I've not found its parallel in history.  Which is why, perhaps, it is so effective and so devastating. 

Because nobody tells black American racists or Asian American racists that it's fine to be a racist if it's directed at white people more loudly than white liberals.  Which makes me think of this:

“And Jesus said to his disciples, “Temptations to sin are sure to come; but woe to him by whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung round his neck and he were cast into the sea”    Luke 17.1-2a


  1. "Back when I was a kid, in the early 2000s,..."
    I must say, this both illuminating and frustrating. Great to hear a minority voice declare the foible(s) of Affirmative Action. He's mostly incorrect about the timetable. For his sake, perhaps it's only been more apparent in his immediate crowd in the last 10 years. Really though, anti-white sentiment was a present factor on campus during college in the 90s.
    As he says, they never would call it properly. Always, we must honor "Affirmative Action" as a euphemism for acceptable minority racism.
    I'm glad to see the Court over-rule Affirmative Action. It's long overdue.
    It'll most likely require quite some time before college and university campus life reflects a genuinely diverse frame of mind. They've been steeped in rejecting anything of European culture--especially faith--for too long to give up quickly.

    1. I think since the Obama years the ability of minorities to openly express hatred for whites, mock whites, and be defended for doing so has increased. Yes, you had some of that when I was in college in the 1980s. You had some radicals, some professors of various ethnicities, who were already smacking down 'whites' as a pox on humanity (and that included very white professors). But on the media side, that sort of Farrakhan style race hate was usually downplayed or swept under the carpet. It's been since the Obama years that we've sanctioned this and, as we can see, encouraged it. So the number of minority activists (and this seems to increasingly include Jewish activists) prepared to nail any and all white (Christians) to the wall with open hate and contempt and glee, has grown exponentially.
