The Racism of “Anti-Racism” Part 2: Examples of Real Racism
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” — Martin Luther King, August 28, 1963
In Part 1 of this series, I argued that the current race problem in America is largely a construction of America-hating left and that the most racist people are those who peach “anti-racism.” First the anti-racists argue that EVERYTHING is about race. That is the primary determinate of everything. How is that not racist? These acolytes also assert that America’s institutions are inherently, systemically racist and that the only solution is to tear down all institutions and culture that made our country great and to engage in radical counter racism — racism against whites (who are all racist, according to them), Jews, Asians, and any other convenient scapegoat. In this installment in my series I will provide blatant examples of the racism of the anti-racists.
Kendi, the progenitor of Critical Race Theory, along with sloppy “academics” like Nikole Hannah-Jones, states that racism is “A collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.” This is an example of illogical, circular logic. As asserted here,
Consider the definition of circular reasoning:
Circular is a logical fallacy in which the reasoner begins with what they are trying to end with…
Let us substitute to illustrate. What is Communism? “A collection of communist policies that lead to communist inequity that are substantiated by communist ideas”
What is activism? “A collection of activist policies that lead to activist inequity that are substantiated by activist ideas” [my emphasis added]
The definition is neither coherent, useful, nor rigorous. This would get you an F on any paper I wrote when schools taught how to think and not what to think.
Before Christmas the 2021 the Salvation Army, a supposedly Christian organization, demonstrated it racist anti-racism. Their CEO, taking a page from the bigoted works of Kendi demanded that white people confess their racism. “In a guidebook titled ‘Let’s Talk About Racism,’ the Salvation Army showed themselves to be racist apostles of the teachings of Kendi and other race baiters. Only when donations slowed to a trickle into their trademark red buckets did the CEO apologize — sort of.
Our failed school seem the biggest haven for woke anti-racist racism. In addition to separate (but equal) dorms, common areas, graduation ceremonies, “affinity groups,” Atlanta schools dividing students in math class by race, and other segregation, schools have dropped their gifted and talented programs (which are full of Asians), showing work in math class, and punctuality as signs of white supremacy. The Daily Wire reported,
“‘In the weeks and months after the death of George Floyd a vicious and malicious cancel culture purge swept academia, with professors who expressed views not in complete sync with radical campus opinion being subjected to firings and attempted firings, harassment and intimidation, and defamation, wrote William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law, who has been the attempted victim of cancel culture himself.”
The article went on to describe how UCLA accounting professor Gordon Klein was suspended for the temerity of refusing to grade black and white students differently on exams. Will the standards for proper accounting in the corporate world or when filing one’s taxes be different depending on the skin color of the accountant?
Breitbart recently reported that “The student body president of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) was discovered posting extreme, racist, and violent rhetoric on social media, which included advocating for the targeted killings of law enforcement. In one post to social media, the “transgender & non-binary” leader of VCU’s student government wrote: “i [sic] hate white people so much its not even funny.” The rest of the article has examples of posts by Taylor Marie Maloney that exhibit her flagrant racism. The posts are filled with grammar errors that put in doubt the academic rigor of VCU, but colleges aren’t about education anymore; they are about indoctrination. This barely made the news; however, imagine the national furor if someone had made the same statement about black people.
Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, one of the top two high schools in the United States, decided to water down its rigorous admissions process to promote equity over excellence. Apparently too many Asian students were being admitted. The Daily Wire reported,
Fairfax County School Board’s 12 members recently eliminated the race-blind, merit-based admissions tests to the largely Asian school. They argued high test performance was a “barrier” to black and Hispanic students. Most TJ students have tested in the top 2 percent of nationally normed tests that measure cognitive development, with IQ levels largely ranging from gifted at about 120 to genius at about 160.
School officials have replaced the tests with a “holistic” popularity contest for students who best fit their “Portrait of Student,” with race-based criterion, middle school quotas, and subjective markers about whether a student is an “Ethical/Global Citizen,” “Creative and Critical Thinker,” “Goal-Directed and Resilient Individual,” “Innovator,” “Problem Solver,” “Leader,” “Collaborator” and “Communicator.”
In addition to the new approach to recruiting students… school officials also suggested teaching critical race theory, a “controversial and divisive ideology” that teaches whites are inherently racist and must atone for their racism regardless of their actions.
Eliminating a race-blind, merit-based system with one that illegally gives preference to one or more preferred minority groups is not racist?
The Southlake Independent School District, outside Dallas, TX, is the top-rated school district in the state and has no performance gap between different races. “According to district data, ‘microaggressions,’ bullying, and racially charged incidents happen approximately three times per month in the district of 8,500 students, meaning they involve 0.3 percent of students a year;” nevertheless, according to The Daily Wire, they implemented a “Cultural Competence” program whose objective was to shame and belittle white students. Among the points of the training are assertions that ” anyone who dares to see everyone equally regardless of race is instigating “cultural blindness.” Again, I thought being color blind was a virtue, not a vice. In Loudon County, VA, a student was berated by his teacher for being “color blind”. How is instructing students on what are the characteristic of “whiteness” not an example of “anti-racist” racism? The article goes on to say that “Ironically, the [Cultural Competence] presentation also warns against ‘stereotyping,’ which it says ‘happens when you generalize about a person while ignoring the presence of individual differences.’” Stereotyping white people as racist is okay, but stereotyping minorities is bad. That is the hypocrisy of the “anti-racist” racists.
At nearly the same time, Fairfax County school board member Abrar Omeish gave the keynote address at the commencement for Justice High School in Falls Church, Virginia on June 7, “in which she told a mainly-immigrant class of high schoolers that they were entering a world filled with ‘racism, extreme versions of individualism and capitalism, [and] white supremacy,‘ and encouraged them to remember their “jihad” and reject the concepts of objectivity and neutrality.” Read more here. It’s disgusting, but it makes starkly clear that school boards and many teachers see their roles as political indoctrinators, not educators.
There is a lot of racism these days. It comes mostly from the Left. Is it any wonder that parents who have seen the indoctrination of their children are taking action. The boards, unions, and teachers made a huge strategic error by forcing remote learning that let parents see first-hand their nefarious actions.
And anti-Semitism is permissible “anti-racism” to the woke. Business and Politics Review reported, “Quinn Mootz, the campaign manager for West Side Democrats’ member Sara Lind, posted controversial comments to Twitter this past Tuesday in which she first complained about the neighborhood’s alleged ‘diversity problem’ [there were too many white and Jewish people her neighborhood] and then defended herself from backlash by claiming that Jewish people don’t count as ‘people of color.’” For the Left and the woke, anyone who is not defined as a “person of color” is a legitimate target of the racist anti-racists, and “person of color” is a fungible definition depending on who is being attacked, cancelled, or vilified at the moment.
Another example of flagrant racism by the anti-racists is an Instagram account created for the purpose of harassing white staffers on Capitol Hill, called “Dear White Staffers”. When questioned about this account, Pelosi dismissed the reporter’s concerns. As the article points out, “If a racist account targeting Black staffers in D.C. was established, don’t you think Pelosi would have something to say about it?“
I have a problem with something called Black Entertainment Television, because you could never get away with White Entertainment Television. I don’t want there to be White Entertainment Television, either. My point is the hypocrisy. Similar hypocrisy is that the courts generally rule against all male organization, but all female organizations are encouraged.
The Left believes that all black people should vote as a block, the way the Left tells them to vote. Joe Biden famously boasted if you didn’t vote for him, that “you ain’t black.” Assuming that black people don’t have the intelligence to form their own opinion based on facts isn’t racist? The Left panders to minorities to get votes, but in the end, they hurt minorities instead of helping them. A prominent black group said of Biden, “[He] used black Americans to ascend to the White House, but has basically turned his back on them.” That statement is true of Leftists and liberals in general. As Candace Owens has said many times, the Left is only interested in minorities during elections. Lyndon Johnson said of civil rights legislation that if he signed the bill, he’d have black people voting Democrat for 200 years.
And goes even farther than that. Black legislators who happen to be Republicans or Conservatives are marginalized or vilified. Tim Scott (R-SC) is routinely vilified by the Left for his conservative positions on everything from spending to police reform. In fact, after Scott gave a rebuttal to a Biden speech in April 2021, Casey Ryan reported,
“Twitter allowed ‘Uncle Tim’ to trend for hours following Scott’s response. ‘After Sen. Tim Scott’s rebuttal, Twitter let a racial slur against the senator trend on Twitter for hours before they finally blocked it,’ [Stuart] Varney said. The trend appeared to be a play on ‘Uncle Tom.’ Liberals have often used the racial slur to demean black Republicans. Twitter reportedly allowed the trend to remain active for about 11 hours before taking it down.”
If you are a black person who disagrees with the anti-American narrative of the Left, then you are an “Uncle Tom” or a sellout to your race. That isn’t racist? Tim Scott has said,
Democrats “use the word ‘racist’ whenever they are trying to scare people into their corner. It has nothing to do with race. But they don’t care. Winning at all costs means losing at some point.”
The admission of Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) to the Congressional Black Caucus was slow rolled at least six months because he is a Rupublican who supported President Trump. When CNN tried to rationalize this treatment, Donalds fire back:
“As a black man in America, I’m allowed to have my own thoughts on who I choose to support and who I choose not to support,” he said.
“You’re talking to somebody who, my first three years in college was at Florida A&M, an HBCU, so whether my support for President Trump…whether it’s for or against is irrelevant. It has nothing to do with this discussion. This is whether the ideology of somebody who is conservative is welcome in the Congressional Black Caucus,” he said.
“It’s really that simple,” Donalds noted.
When Glen Youngkin was elected Governor of Virginia on a campaign of giving parents more insight and control over their childrens’ education, the Left chalked it up to racism. As reported by Brian Flood,
CNN’s Brianna Keilar told viewers that some of Youngkin’s messaging was “dog whistle racism.” On MSNBC alone, Nicolle Wallace insisted critical race theory isn’t real, political analyst Cornell Belcher called CRT a strategy to “drive up the White vote,” Joy Reid declared “education” is “code for white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race,” contributor Jason Jackson complained that Youngkin had to spend months convicting people “he was not a fire-breathing horns out of his skull racist” and Reid claimed a lot of Americans don’t want to bother learning the history of racism.
They ignored the fact that Winsome Sears, a black woman, was elected to be Lieutenant Governor and Jason Miyares, a Hispanic man, was elected as attorney general. The Left claimed that Youngkin’s election showed that half the nation loves white supremacy. Capitol Hill News got it right when they responded,
Half of the country does love white supremacy. The left side. It wouldn’t exist if they constantly blast “white supremacy” in their messaging against the Republican party. They have to keep up the appearance of white supremacy because they use it to get Democrats elected and try to slam Republicans. It’s not working anymore because people are starting to not listen to it. The tactic is dead on arrival, and it’s been dead for quite a while.
The occupant of the White House is a racist. No not Trump, the current one. (Try to get a Leftist to cite a real example of Trump’s racism!). Recall that the 2T COVID relief bill that is driving the spike in inflation to record highs specifically denied aid to white farmers. That’s not racist? Jurist.org reported that a federal judge ruled that Biden’s COVID restaurant relief fund discriminated against white men and violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. Trump made funding for historically black colleges and universities permanent, but he was racist.
The Left even blames obesity among black people on racism: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2857317351176921.
Illegal quotas and double standards are everywhere. Microsoft News reported that Lori Lightfoot, Democrat Mayor of Chicago, faced backlash when she said she would only grant one-on-one interviews with black and brown reporters. The Utah Jazz sports team excluded white children from its scholarship program. Hiring managers at State Street Global Advisors, one of the nation’s largest investment firms, must get special permission to hire white people. CBS News reported that, “The Biden administration is asking the Supreme Court to turn away a legal battle brought by a group of Asian American students who argue Harvard College’s admissions process violates federal civil rights law and discriminates against Asian American applicants.” Who wants to admit people due to merit? Thomas Sowell often opined that it is better to admit minorities to schools where they can excel than to admit them to schools for which they are ill prepared only to have them fail. Quotas have seeped into medicine as well. The Washington Examiner reported,
A Boston hospital says it will offer “preferential care based on race” and “race-explicit interventions” in an attempt to engage in an “antiracist agenda for medicine” based on critical race theory.
A Boston Review article titled “An Antiracist Agenda for Medicine” lays out a plan from Brigham and Women’s Hospital that implements a “reparations framework” for distributing medical resources in order to “comprehensively confront structural racism.”
The least tolerant people in the America on the Leftists who disingenuously preach tolerance. The most fascist people in America, other than perhaps Dr. Fauci and the members federal government, are the Antifa “anti-fascists.” The most racist people in America are those who throw around the race card at the drop of a hat to virtue signal, pander to minorities, and pretend to be “anti-racist.” In part 2 of this article, I provided a shotgun blast of examples of how the real racists in America are the Left, the media, and the “anti-racists.” You can find examples just about everywhere you look. I only provided what I thought were the most egregious. In part 3, I continue to provide examples of racism from the supposedly “anti-racists.”
