Cultural Whiteness

If white Americans were to start a group to ameliorate the conditions of working-class whites, without a doubt charges of racism would be leveled against them. Unfortunately, the dehumanization of white people has support across the political spectrum. Suggesting that all races apart from whites can have interests is to rob them of agency, thus relegating them to a subhuman state.

White nationalism is characterized as a vice by leading commentators. No one interested in retaining the respect of mainstream outlets defends the logic of white identity politics. Blacks and Hispanics may organize political groups to pursue a racial agenda, yet we frown on whites who make a case for similar organizations. It is argued that nonwhite institutions were created to protect the civil rights of other races from a racist political structure. However, accepting this premise does not vitiate the argument for white identity groups. People form racial groups for reasons other than protecting civil rights. As tribal creatures we express a desire to associate with similar individuals. Numerous immigrants have achieved widespread success due to the networking advantages generated by groups dedicated to advancing the status of racial minorities.

Similarly, white people—like Blacks, Hispanics, and the Chinese—also have goals that can only be pursued by racial organizations. For too long, white nationalism has been construed as a synonym for racism, though this is patently untrue. White people are entitled to create institutions preserving the legacy of Western civilization. It is preposterous to acknowledge the rights of other races to celebrate their culture but chastise whites for doing so. On its website, for example, the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of New York openly declared that it exists to serve the goals of the Chinese-American community: “The Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA) was founded in 1883 to serve and protect the interests of the Chinese people in the New York metropolitan area.” The list of its functions is quite revealing:

White student, 18, represented by gun-toting St Louis lawyer sues her Catholic school for ‘siding with black students who claimed she said “black lives don’t matter” and threatened to attack her’

She claims officials routinely discriminate against white students ‘by encouraging and facilitating race-based aggression’ by black students. The unnamed student also says staff  encourage ‘the concept that all Caucasians are racist by virtue of being Caucasian’.

A white student has sued officials at her esteemed private Catholic high school in St. Louis, accusing them of siding with black classmates who called her a racist, claimed she’d said ‘black lives don’t matter’ in class, and then allegedly threatened to attack her because of it.

The 18-year-old senior, a student at Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School in Frontenac, made the allegations in a lawsuit she filed against the independent all-girls school with her parents on December 21.

The senior claims officials routinely discriminate against white students ‘by encouraging and facilitating race-based aggression’ by black students.

The female student, referred to only as ‘Daughter Doe’ in legal documents, further alleges that students are unfairly disciplined on race and that staff encourage ‘the concept that all Caucasians are racist by virtue of being Caucasian.’

Report: Facebook a ‘Hotbed of Child Sexual Abuse Material’ with 20M Incidents

A recent report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children claims that Facebook had 20.3 million reported incidents of child sexual abuse material. In comparison, Pornhub’s parent company MindGeek had only 13,000 reports. Facebook accounted for 95 percent of the incidents in the report.

The Daily Beast reports that according to new data from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) CyberTipline, the vast majority of online child exploitation reports were linked to Facebook. The study found that over 20.3 million reported incidents related to child pornography or trafficking were linked to Facebook.

In comparison to the millions of incidents reported on Facebook, Google had 546,704 incidents, Twitter found 65,062, Snapchat reported 144,095, and TikTok found 22,692. Facebook accounted for almost 95 percent of the 21.7 million reports combined across all platforms.

MindGeek, the Canada-based parent company of multiple porn websites including Pornhub, RedTube, and YouPorn, reported far fewer incidents than Facebook. MindGeek reported 13,229 reports.

‘Eating while black’: N.Y. Times admits elite college scapegoated janitors in race hoax

Officials appeased student who claimed she was profiled

A remarkable New York Times story shows how the postmodern relativistic culture of an elite women’s college prompted administrators to appease a black student who falsely claimed she was racially profiled, wrecking the lives of four of the school’s lower-class wage earners, who were branded as bigots.

Times reporter Michael Powell begins by pointing out that at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, tuition, room and board top $78,000 a year while the employees who keep the school running often come from working-class neighborhoods.

The saga began in the summer of 2018, when Oumou Kanoute, a black student, recounted on Facebook that she was eating lunch in a dorm lounge when a janitor and a campus police officer walked over and asked her what she was doing there. The area was off-limits to students at the time, because the school was hosting a youth conference.

Report: Under Armour Forced White Employees to Undergo ‘Antiracist’ Reeducation Program

Under Armour appears to be the next big corporation found to be forcing employees to undergo anti-white training sessions, a report says.

According to the Outkick, a whistleblower is reporting that the sportswear giant has mandated that employees take a so-called “anti-racism” course entitled “Above the Surface: Dominant White Progressive Narratives” that urges white employees to examine how they might be racist.

Under Armour “forced its white employees to participate in a training program that asked them to consider ways in which they might be racist.”

The course’s moderator even reportedly asked white employees how many “virtually all-white” funerals they had attended during their lives, insisting that not going to a minority funeral may prove the employee is racist. After asking that question, the moderator quickly interrupted, saying that she didn’t want to give whites time to think of their answer. She then told white employees that the question “should be something that you are thinking about if you are white for the rest of your life.”

In another part of the training, whites are told that saying “I was taught to treat everyone the same” is also racist.

Liberal censorship opens lucrative door for conservative entrepreneurs, social media star says

“Billions of dollars to be made by providing conservative alternatives,” Rogan O’Handley said.

The social media censorship of conservatives is going to significantly backfire, lawyer and social media influencer Rogan O’Handley predicts.

O’Handley, who goes by the social media handle @DC_Draino, told the John Solomon Reports podcast that by forcing conservatives out of mainstream social media, the left is creating a lucrative business for alternative social media platforms that are pro-free speech.

“This is economic balkanization of the internet, right? So we’re seeing as we are rejected, and pushed out of, and censored by, mainstream leftist Silicon Valley companies, it’s creating a massive, lucrative economic opportunity for entrepreneurs to provide alternatives that, you know, defend American values and allow free speech,” O’Handley said.

Asian American Group Eviscerates Critical Race Theory: ‘A Hateful, Divisive, Manipulative Fraud’

Although Chinese Americans “are people of color and therefore start from the oppressed side of CRT’s binary,” CACAGNY explained that “as we overcome discrimination and achieve upward mobility, we are now White by adjacency” (emphasis original). The Chinese American group claimed that Black Lives Matter rioters with CRT signs assaulted a CACAGNY rally supporting merit-based education.

Backlash is rising against the Marxist critical race theory (CRT) behind The New York Times‘ “1619 Project” and other efforts to indoctrinate Americans with the idea that American society is fundamentally or “structurally” racist. This week, the Chinese American Citizens Alliance of Greater New York (CACAGNY) issued a powerful statement condemning critical race theory and urging Chinese Americans to oppose it.

“Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a hateful, divisive, manipulative fraud,” CACAGNY declared. “One way or another, CRT wants to get rid of ?too many Asians? in good schools. Asians are over-represented.? CRT is today’s Chinese Exclusion Act. CRT is the real ?hate crime? against Asians” (emphasis original).

Critical race theory teaches that any racial disparities must ipso facto be proof of some hidden racial bias or discrimination, regardless of civil rights laws explicitly forbidding such discrimination. Since Americans of Asian ancestry are overrepresented in colleges, universities, and certain high-income professions, CRT effectively teaches that American society is structurally biased in favor of Asians.
