Will The White Members Of McMaster’s CUPE Local 3906 Resign En Masse In Protest Of Canada’s White Supremacist Society?

A reader forwarded me an email sent by CUPE Local 3906 to all graduate student teaching assistants at McMaster.

One action item announced a recruiting drive by Black, Brown and Red Lives Matter, AKA – BBRLM:

BBRLM is recruiting people to join their Steering Committee. 
 
Being part of the Committee is to join a team of wonderful and dedicated comrades in the struggle for racial equity and anti-oppression.  Their struggle currently revolves around the epidemic racial and class bias in policing, and policing practices that encroach upon and dismiss our rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedom. To be clear, they are neither against the police nor blind to the broader political, economical, and social context that are the backdrop setting the role of policing in a neoliberal-capitalistic, colonial, and white supremacy racist society. What BBRLM offers is an avenue for organizing and mobilizing against racism and articulating and working towards community empowerment.

 
BBRLM is at this moment recruiting Indigenous and Black women to join their team.

They strive to have racial and gender diversity in our Committee. Having an understanding of anti-oppression or anti-racist principles would be valuable. Tasks of Committee members vary per action plan items, and will be elaborated upon after recruitment.
For more information, please visit: www.bbrlm.wordpress.com

 
(NB. BBRLM is currently housed under OPIRG McMaster.)

Well I must say I am thankful that CUPE Local 3906 has enlightened me to the fact that Canada is a veritable cesspool of oppression being a neoliberal-capitalistic colonial white supremacy racist society and all. As the possessor of magical white skin myself I was moved to contact CUPE Local 3906 directly and express my solidarity with BBRLM.
 
Boy was I shocked when I looked up their twitter account.  Take a look at that group photo! They’re at least 80% White Oppressors and the few visible “people of colour” have no doubt internalized the White Man’s Racism!!
 
I’m certain they’ll all resign en masse once this glaring example of white privilege and hypocrisy is pointed out to them!  Won’t they? Hope they get that all gender washroom thing sorted out too.

    What can brown do for you?
    If black, brown, and red society posses so much noble cultural magic, then why are all of their societies such wrecks?

    it seems some First Nations Tribes in the northwest had one quarter of the population as hereditary slaves. Do the descendants of slaves of Indians get even more special dispensation?

    • H8tr!

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Somebody’s gotta!
        I’m halfway serious too.
        Without some acrimony where will we find the moral courage and resolve to push back against destructive ideas that benefit a few but harm even more?
        These groups should be vilified as well as the communities that promote and benefit from such lies.
        Their guilt in this case is a collective one.

          Optimist!

        • Petey

          It’s building.

      India’s heritage is of course in a different league from that of negroes and red injuns.

      • Clausewitz

        Maybe we should adopt the Caste system, it works so well in India.

        • Icebow

          Actually it doesn’t.

          • FactsWillOut

            Once a wog…

          • Icebow

            That term is inapplicable to Indians, or should be.

          • FactsWillOut

            Why?
            Drinking water from the Ganges is worse than the Thames, wot?

          • Clausewitz

            Wise Oriental Gentleman?

          • FactsWillOut

            “The Wogs start at Calais”…even more relevant now…

          • Clausewitz

            Sarcasm is wasted on the interwebs.

  • simus1

    Er, is “political diversity” an especially unneeded nonrequirement, comrades?
    Welcome to the commie plantation.

    • Icebow

      Political diversity and inclusiveness must include right-wing types.

      • FactsWillOut

        LOL.
        Such naivety.

  • Icebow

    I’m not sure they’re quite doing their bit for white privilege.

  • FactsWillOut

    Did these guys write their little manifesto?:

    Libtard brains are mush.

    • That was scary.

      • FactsWillOut

        We think AI is a threat, but in the end, AS (Artificial Stupidity) is the much greater threat.

    The rest of the people of color are inside scrubbing toilets etc…….

  • jayme

    If you include all non whites in Ottawa with natives they would make up about 50% of the population so maybe its time to get rid of all the programs that give them a extra leg up and get rid of all the human rights groups.

  • Clausewitz

    When I was doing my PhD at Mac I also lectured so as to defer some of my tuition. I “Had to” I repeat “Had to” become part of this group of numbnuts in order to be allowed to teach. Most of these idiots are brain dead brain washed fools who have drunk the kool aid heavily. All you have to do is drop by the Faculty Lounge to observe the goat rodeo that has become higher education in Canada.

    • El Martyachi

      There’s good profs but not by default. Ya gotsta look for them…

      • Clausewitz

        Fully agree with you. In actuality the Prof that sponsored me and over looked my PhD dissertation was an old style lefty from the 70’s. The major difference from most of the Progressives of today is that he could look at both sides of an issue, and didn’t take offense if you challenged him with a plausible argument. Sadly most of the crop of Professor’s coming out today take any disagreement with them as a personal affront, and will not tolerate any opposing views in the lecture hall. Of all of the Prof’s I’ve come across I can count on one hand the really good ones from the left side of the spectrum.

        • That was the old left, today’s pseudo-left are just cranks.

    • Petey

      I had a friend, a fellow engineering student and ex military, who’d go into the OPIRG office on the Mac campus between classes and stir stuff up by jus asking questions. They were so rilable even back then.

    • That sounds awful.

  • Edubeat

    Like perhaps maybe just they’s gots too much time on their hands and they k’ant spell either
