Want to Heal Yourself from ‘Toxic Whiteness’? This Class Can Help


It can be painful observing white people attempt to recognize or work against their privilege—especially if they’re confronted with the topic. In fact, recent surveys have suggested that the majority of white American believe they face as much discrimination as people of color, while others subscribe to the misguided concept of reverse racism.

But how can white people fight against systemic racism in a way that exorcises, rather than exacerbates, their inherent privilege? Sandra Kim, founder and executive director of the online magazine and educational platform Everyday Feminism, has one solution, and it’s called Healing from Toxic Whiteness.

  • Masochists.

    • There needs to be a course called “Healing from Toxic Liberalism”.

        I have a friend who did a masters in social work, who told me she had to really work at undoing the indoctrination, that was pushed down the throat of the students in the program. Since so much of what is taught is social justice based on liberal nonsense, I no longer think a degree is worth the money or the time.

        There is no such thing as white privilege. Many in my neighbourhood get government assistance, they contributed nothing towards.

      I would give that comment a ‘thumb’s up’ but I don’t want it to be misconstrued.

    Hillary uses BleachBit. (That is what that’s for, right???)

    I have already instructed my children in their privilege. I have told them that while thinking about a career, the only option for them is self employment. If they want a career path that involves working for a big corporation or government they will be at the back of the line and they will only get hired or promoted if their is no woman or minority who wants the job.

    Sandra Kim? Sounds North Korean.

    The Norks were turning American POWS into big bags of red jelly flavoured commies 60 odd years ago, no problem. The ones from California were supposedly the easiest, so they claimed. Brits, Canadians, and Aussies etc other ranks were mostly a waste of time, stubborn, racist, unserious.

      When it comes down to surrenduring; it is usually the officers. The OR’s are usually very reluctant. The real leaders are the NCO’s, the officers are just managers. If you are going to go: go out swinging. Many APPOINTED Leaders don’t understand that.

    Carbon taxes will help us atone for our skin color.

    Embrace your whiteness in all it’s superiority. Everything good in the world has come from us, mass transportation, mass media, mass food production, lifesaving medicines and machines, a sense of common humanity…. the others are just barnacles on our hull. A great big Fuck Off! to you all.

      “Barnacles on our hull”… fuken perfect!

    Everything leftists say or do regarding racism is based in denial, deflection, distraction from the fact that all racism is caused by the thing they worship most – collectivism. This little workshop is no exception. It’s blatantly racist while pretending to be against racism. It’s just another way to appear to oppose racism without addressing the cause, and to actually obscure the cause.

      All really ambitious elitist marxists want to be high level functionaries in a magnificent totalitarian governing colossus and are prepared to wear any dress and mask and co-opt any group they deem necessary to reach their goal. Nothing about this is permanent, as our “heavy lifting” but recalcitrant working class is discovering today.
