Lies, lies, lies.
The third lie is the worst.
Black Lives Matter, the “diversity” police, and other “systemic racism”-mongers relentlessly claim that white privilege and white supremacy blockade Black success. Blacks think, “Yes, we can.” The Democratic-left replies: “No, you can’t.”
Last June, Seattle staged Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness. This segregated brainwashing program for white municipal workers accused them of rendering people of color “unable to imagine a way forward that comes from a place of humanity and empowerment.”
So, Blacks are paralyzed victims, as helpless as butterflies ensnared in a tarantula’s web of white racism.
This frightful fantasy is concocted to leave Blacks cold and scared — all the better to swaddle them in the warm, loving arms of the Left.
Ultimately, like every Democrat effort, this is about getting elected, retaining power, and controlling Americans as tightly as possible.
If this cleaves America like an ax-split log, so be it. If whites must be vilified unfairly as bigots — to a man, woman, and child — who cares?
And, if Blacks feel not empowered but enfeebled within an alleged whirlpool of white hate, then too bad. The Democratic-Left’s insatiable thirst for total political domination must be quenched, by any means necessary.
The Atlantic on April 3 covered Ndona Muboyayi. She enrolled her son and daughter in Evanston, Illinois’s government schools in 2018. She recalls, “within the first year, my children were being taught about white supremacy and white privilege and that all white people were rich and racist.”
Since age 11, her son dreamed of becoming a lawyer. But, before long, he had abandoned his aspirations. “Mommy,” he explained, “there are these systems put in place that prevent Black people from accomplishing anything.”
“That’s what they’re teaching Black kids,” Muboyayi said. “The narrative is, ‘You can’t get ahead.’”
The Democrat-Left deliberately preaches this gospel of Black failure:
•The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of African American History & Culture published a chart last July detailing “Aspects & Assumptions of Whiteness.” It listed “hard work,” “decision-making,” “intellect,” “The King’s English rules,” and “Be polite.” Ergo, the assumptions of Blackness would include sloth, indecision, idiocy, illiteracy, and discourtesy. Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke could not expect less of Blacks.
•City Journal’s Christopher F. Rufo is the most enterprising journalist on this beat. He reported May 26 on a racial re-education program for 13 top white male executives at Lockheed Martin, America’s chief military contractor. Last year, White Men As Full Diversity Partners staged this seminar for a former Air Force colonel, a retired USAF general, and 11 other industrialists who build the Hercules C-130 airlift vehicle, the F-35 fighter jet, and other weapons in the arsenal of democracy. For three days, they stopped defending America and obsessed over race. WMAFDP teaches that the “roots of white male culture” include such traits as “rugged individualism,” “a can-do attitude,” and “striving towards success.”
Alas, these experts claim, such characteristics are “devastating” to minorities. Presumably, Blacks are associated with group-think, a no-can-do attitude, and failure as an objective.
•”Like we got this standard English thing,” said New York University education professor David Kirkland, creator of New York State’s “culturally responsive + sustaining education” curriculum. “We don’t even know why we tell people to you know, um, learn standard English.”
“By saying that this is a standard English or even an English-only classroom, we are consenting to the, you know, the master narrative,” he added in a March 6, 2019 speech at the University of Texas, Austin. “But beyond that, we are also reinforcing narratives of white supremacy, narratives of anti-Black, anti-Brown racism; unchecked within the work that we do. And this leads to multiple forms of oppression.”
So, Black kids, don’t “act white” by embracing correctly written and spoken English. Personal and professional self-improvement ist verboten.
