Teaching While White

Teaching While White (TWW) is becoming an occupational hazard these days. So is being a white student, for that matter. At the “Unofficial Scripps College Survival Guide,” students learn that “white peers and faculty — portray Claremont Consortium as a haven for liberal ideology and acceptance. It’s a rhetoric that has led many white students to believe that racism does not exist on campus.” Thus, “as white students, [they] must identify the ways that [they] are engaging in the perpetuation of white supremacy and work to unlearn [their] racism.”

    “Unlearning their racism” ALWAYS means giving power to those guys. And we can see how wonderfully they use the power when they get it.

    Modern Affirmative Action is based on racism – against whites – and teaches that white folks are evil and deserve to be treated as evil, as uniquely evil. It is a per se sort of thing for which there is absolutely no defense. Carried to its logical conclusion then the final step is the proverbial Final Solution.

    Don’t be surprised if some folks actually believe what they are taught.

    • And people wonder why Trump is doing so well.

        And why equal opportunity is branded racist. (Stay down whitey.)

    Teaching while white has become dangerous, the same way teaching while literate became dangerous about 30 years ago.

    This is why we weed out the illiterates in the CAF before they get a chance to harm themselves or others.

    Can’t tell you how many times I came up against a dough-head that thought ideology and race trumped reality.

    60 years of affirmative action and head start programs have failed to narrow the gap between Blacks and Whites on intelligence tests or in academic scores

    So what’s a liberal to do?

    You explain away this embarrassing Black under performance by inventing a mythical White *privilege*, a magic wand, that Whites alone possess, and which they use on every occasion to further themselves academically, socially and financially.

    Liberals cannot bring themselves to admit certain truths with regards to Blacks and Black culture, and so they invent myths about whites.

    At the same time both Jews and Orientals tend to outperform Whites by a significant margin, yet these same liberals never invoke *Yellow Privilege* or Jewish Privilege* because to do so would invoke, and quite rightly so, charges of racism.

    Orientals and Jews tend to outperform Whites because both groups demonstrate a greater deal of stamina, determination and discipline when it comes to an education and a career.

    Jewish parents and oriental parents push they kids a lot.

    White parents tend to cut their kids far more slack when it comes to leisure time and fun.

    Black parents, particularly fathers, are nowhere to be seen…

      Funny how politics works out in the end.
