The Ugly Racism of ‘Whiteness Studies’ Programs

The Left has turned American universities into havens for race hatred.

When a pair of black separatists recently murdered five police officers in Dallas and three others in Baton Rouge, they were aiming, by their own proclamation, to carry out righteous retribution against an American society which they deplored because of its deep-seated “white skin privilege,” a concept first popularized by Bill Ayers and his fellow Weatherman radicals who, in the early ’70s, aimed to foment a violent race war against a supposedly Klan-like “Amerikkka.” Although their terrorist tactics and aspirations made the Weathermen a fringe group, their views on race proved, over time, to have legs. The notion of white skin privilege became an article of faith among progressives, accounting for everything that was racially wrong in America, beginning with its constitutional framework.

    I took a white studies program called electrical engineering.

      My older son took one called mechanical engineering, my second son took one called medical to become a doctor and one daughter took one called a master degree in soil microbiology.

        They are only in high school.
        I’m in that let go stage.
        Really hard.

          It is true that when you become a parent you are a parent for life in that we always want and hope for the best for our children. It remains necessary however to allow them to choose and go their own way; never easy but necessary I think. I would be just as proud of my children had they chosen to become excellent tradesmen or any legal type of work, so other than encouraging good marks and school work we never tried to push them into any given field. Still I recognise how fortunate my wife and I are, since we know some equally good parents whose children went the wrong way big time. We also know some who were terrible parents and yet whose children took a different path from their parents to be successful, hard working and law-abiding adults. Go figure.

            There’s echoes, too, of being that age and not knowing what to do, how to do it and having to work your ass off to get there.
            One day, someone is going to yell at you because the cook got the eggs wrong. You’re going to get blisters on your feet working a sixteen hour day. You’re going to have to study all weekend to write that exam. You’re going to have to forgo beer for baby formula and diapers. So many things.
            I try to make them understand.

    but these white studies courses, I am an industrial engineer myself, are sooo hard and take time away from my protesting activities!

      I remember when we got to orientation class and someone asked if we should volunteer for extracurricular activities to enhance our resume.
      The instructors told us point blank that we would not have time for such nonsense and not to bother.
      Probably the best advice we got.
      Out of a hundred and ten students in the room that day only thirty made it out at graduation.

        I think we were about 25%.

    Go to africa; especially liberia —whites bought that piece of your homeland for you; and create a your own society without white aide — ’cause any white aide would be influence ‘doncha know. By all means leave the western societies that have given you the freedom and equal opportunity that you despise.

    I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to all ‘White People’ for our spineless Politicians.
