Nonwhites Can’t Be Racist Cuz My Teacher Told Me So

Although it was released over three years ago, there were audible sounds of indigestion online recently at the discovery of a textbook called Is Everyone Really Equal?: An Introduction to Key Concepts in Social Justice Education. The book is intended for all students of high school age and above. From a cursory glance of the book’s advertising materials, it appears to be roughly as full of shit as its title would imply.

At issue recently was this specific passage:

There is no such thing as reverse racism or reverse sexism (or the reverse of any form of oppression). While women can be just as prejudiced as men, women cannot be “just as sexist as men” because they do not hold political, economic, and institutional power.

Some would agree that there is indeed no such thing as “reverse racism,” but they’d argue so for different reasons than the authors. They’d say racism is racism no matter who’s practicing it. Unlike the authors of Is Everyone Really Equal?, at least they’re being consistent.

But sensible citizens such as you and I realize that the voodoo term “racism” is purely a social construct and thus has no innate meaning…

    So you can make a remark but if you don’t hold power its not racist etc.

      Actually it you’re a white male (non-Muslim) it doesn’t matter if you are sleeping on the street. You’re a racist.

  • Dana Garcia

    Every human is hard-wired to prefer the company of their own group. Race hustlers have redefined racism to include that normal sentiment, conveniently for them.

    • Frau Katze

      Precisely. But you’re being logical. That’s a hate fact.

    My suggestion is for the “white” man to withdraw all his “racist” notions of improving life, inventing things, developing medicines, drilling fresh water wells, installing urban infrastructure and electrical grids, providing agricultural technology and irrigation techniques and of course, stopping all immigration to lands where the white man dominates lest even more racism in the form of the above be brutally or otherwise foisted upon those with obviously superior ways.

    A lot of people of all colours have been kept alive, apparently against their will, by the offensive “white” man and his offensive Judeo-Christian ethic that improved food and health conditions globally; is there a higher demonstration of racism than for racist “whites” to knowingly help non-whites thrive?

    Using the word “non-white” is racist according to the Saturday Star. On the editorial page the Star is worried that using non-white could be considered racist. Meanwhile on the next page on its letters to the editor they allow a letter to proclaim Harper is the same as the gestapo.

    Celebrate white privilege. Every little that drives Leftards apoplectic helps.

    Current British minimum wage is $9.56, though there is something known as ‘living wage’, which the Lefties want to replace it with.

    If I’m predestined to be a racist anyway, should I try to be the best racist I can be?

      There’s the rub. If you’re already a “racist” then by all means you should be able to practice the latitude afforded to genuine racists. How else to make an honest man out of a liar?

    I didn’t used to be racist, but the social engineering I’ve been subjected to during my lifetime kinda backfired. Now, not only am I suspicious of/want to separate myself from those not of ‘my own kind’, but I have a serious hatred for everyone and everything ‘progressive’… Good job, Social Justice Warriors!

      Right there with you JC.

    Refuting “reverse racism” is unflinchingly a racist concept. This is why conservatives should work to retain the moral high ground here. We oppose racism, as taught by leftist sociology claptrap.

    I was raised in the days of “sticks and stones can brake my bones, but words can never hurt me”. I really don’t care if people I don’t know, or don’t care about me, hate me. I have high enough self esteem that the opinions of strangers who I hold in no regard whatsoever really don’t matter to me. Call me names, hate me, whatever. I seriously don’t care. And I am happy to return the favour and hate you back. You’re welcome.

    More often than not, sociology tends to be junk scholarship.

    Absolutely bloody nonsense. Experienced this way, way back in the day when we were at a local building supply shop and were interrupted, while talking to the salesman, by a non-white couple who obviously assumed that – having spoken to the man once – that he was theirs for the duration. To do them credit, they did apologize, But I took note.

    Several year down the line, when there was an issue of marks given at our children’s school, I was told by a fellow parent – and I paraphrase – that it was okay for Canadian children to have lower marks, but Chinese children had to have A’s.

    Our offsprings have all done very well, but I do wonder – upon occasion – as t how well some of their Chinese-Canadian classmates have fared, given the expectations those kids had heaped upon them.
