Crossword Clue (Seven Letters): Whites, by Definition
It’s been clear that the sort of thought that the Providence Journal editorial board criticizes has been permeating university faculty halls for decades:
The Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence has been making use of a handbook called “dismantling racism 2006” put together by a consultancy called Dismantling Racism Works.
Here’s a passage:
“Racism = a white supremacy system.
“Racism is different from racial prejudice, hatred, or discrimination. Racism involves one group having the power to carry out systematic discrimination through the major institutions of society. By this definition, only white people can be racist in our society, because only white people as a group have that power.” …
Oh, here’s another line from the handbook: “All Europeans did not and do not become white at the same time. . . . Becoming white involves giving up pieces of your original culture in order to get the advantages and privileges of being in the white group. . . . This process continues today.”
Race-obsessed academics aren’t interested in understanding racism so as to end it. They’re interested in mastering its application toward their own ends.
