The Ideology of White-Hatred

“I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.” Fifty-five years after Martin Luther King’s plea to end racial discrimination a new kind of prejudice has become quite the fashion. At the recent announcement of a Mugabe-style initiative in South Africa to seize properties owned by white farmers, a chorus of Western media sites, from the Atlantic to our Sydney Morning Herald, condemned the president—not of South Africa but the United States. Donald Trump’s alarm about state-sponsored racial discrimination was denounced as an adoption of “a white nationalist narrative”. Not even when the leader of South Africa’s so-called Economic Freedom Fighters, Julius Malema, spoke of “cutting the throat of whiteness” did our commentariat seem bothered. White-hatred, according to the pseudo-science of contemporary left-wing theory, is nothing more than a demand for social justice.
