What Does Anti-White Racism Look Like?

Chris Roberts, American Renaissance, July 22, 2017

Just look at the headlines of any major newspaper and you’ll find plenty.

More than any other group, whites are maligned, belittled, mocked, and criticized in the mainstream media. (This is different from more direct and personal forms of anti-white behavior, as detailed in these exhaustive collections of minority-on-white crime, and black on white crime.)

Here are some recent examples:

White men must be stopped: The very future of mankind depends on it,” by Frank Joyce, Salon.com/Alternet.org, December 22, 2015.

The future of life on the planet depends on bringing the 500-year rampage of the white man to a halt. For five centuries his ever more destructive weaponry has become far too common. His widespread and better systems of exploiting other humans and nature dominate the globe.

Ten Things White People Need To Quit Saying” by Melody Moezzi, Huffington Post, April 27, 2016.

Remember that reverse racism isn’t a thing. Racism is about the abuse of power and privilege. If your race denies you power and privilege, then you can’t be racist. Certainly, you can still be an asshole. Just not a racist . . . . If any of this offends you as a white person, I ask simply that you sit with that discomfort for a while. Really feel it. Now imagine that your distress weren’t the temporary consequence of reading an article, but rather the permanent consequence of living in your own skin.

For the last three years, BuzzFeed has had listicles about things white people have ruined:

29 Things White People Ruined,” by Tracy Clayton, September 25, 2014.

Number 29 is, “Basically Everything.”

21 Things White People Ruined in 2015” by Pedro Fequiere, December 3, 2015.

The first sentence is, “Besides everything.”

17 Foods That White People Have Ruined” by Tahlia Pritchard, November 16, 2016.

The list includes dishes obviously invented by whites in the first place, such as the croissant.

And here is charming sentiment in The Guardian, May 30, 2017 from an article called “Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race” by Reni Eddo-Lodge:

I’m no longer engaging with white people on the topic of race. Not all white people, just the vast majority who refuse to accept the existence of structural racism and its symptoms. I can no longer engage with the gulf of an emotional disconnect that white people display when a person of colour articulates their experience.

Here is a piece called “White people think racism is getting worse. Against white people.” by Samuel Sommers and Michael Norton from the Washington Post of July 21, 2016:

For some whites, the changing—and increasingly less white—demographics of the United States may feel existentially threatening. Indeed, research points to people’s pervasive fear that they will end up on the bottom of the status pile—a fear called ‘last place aversion.’ . . . . If ‘they’ are moving up in the world, ‘we’ must be moving down. Such fears might be particularly pronounced for a group, like white Americans, that has always been at the top of the racial hierarchy and therefore has the furthest to fall.

The very title of the piece is supposed to get a laugh, and it is clear that demographic displacement and a drop in status is exactly what whites deserve.

Note that I have quoted only from publications that are extremely popular on both a national, and international, level. You can find really hair-raising stuff from a lone Marxist professor, or in a small-circulation leftist outlet, or a fancy, insulting book about whites by a black. But SalonThe Huffington PostBuzzFeedThe Guardian, and The Washington Post are popular and mainstream.

Imagine the articles with just a few tweaks:

“Black migration must be stopped: The very future of my lovely mid-western town depends on it”

“Ten Things Black People Need to Stop Doing on Public Transit”

“21 Things Black People Ruined in 2015”

The first item could be: Two decades of declining crime rates.

“Why I’m no longer talking to black people about IQ”

Of course, titles like these will never appear in the mainstream. They would not appear even at dissident websites.

Anti-white racism in the media is very real. I will believe otherwise when you can find me another race that has been accused of ruining no fewer than 17 foods.
