Prof Faces Complaint After ‘White Guilt’ Remark

Jonathan Woodward, CTV News, June 9, 2014

A New Brunswick university professor is facing complaints after calling Vancouver’s plan to root out racist policies from its past an exercise in manipulating “white guilt.”

In a series of blog posts, Ricardo Duchesne of the University of New Brunswick also accused Vancouver Coun. Kerry Jang of scheming to fleece white Vancouverites on behalf of ethnic Chinese.

“Clearly he is exploiting White ideas to advance the ethnic interests of the Chinese, utilizing the same white guilt our educational institutions inflict on White children,” Duchesne wrote.

“What he calls ‘pride’ is nothing but the relentless demands by Asians to extract ever more resources from Whites. It is time Whites show respect for themselves and stop kowtowing to the Chinese.”

Vancouver council voted unanimously last month to study its records to determine if there were any racist laws or regulations that would have hurt ethnic groups.

The move was approved weeks after the province of British Columbia apologized for its role in creating discriminatory policies, and several years after the 2006 apology by the federal government for the $500 Chinese Head Tax, which was Canadian law until 1923.

Jang, who has complained to Duchesne’s university, said he is third-generation Canadian and shocked city council’s move would be taken this way.

“When the professor starts talking about how I should be worrying about what they’re doing in China, I think: I’m Canadian. I’m expected to be treated like anyone else,” Jang said.

Vancouver has already found some racist property covenants that deny ownership to “Asiatic, negro or Indian” people, according to historian Jean Barman.

“There were covenants on houses. They couldn’t be sold to ‘Asiatics’ as it was termed at the time,” she said.

There’s no talk of compensation from the city at this point, but any compensation would likely come from city tax funds, which are taken from a diverse city population–about 50 per cent white, 30 per cent Asian, and 10 per cent South Asian, according to the 2006 census.

In his blogs, Duchesne also claims that ethnic Chinese “altered a formerly elegant, serene, community-oriented British city of Vancouver, turning it into a loud, congested Asian city (still attractive only because of the architectural and institutional legacy of past White generations.)”

He claimed that in Richmond, “mainland Chinese migration has already helped create the first majority-Chinese city outside Asia, with White citizens cornered into small enclaves and many being forced to sell their homes and move out as ‘millionaire migrants’ take over.”

Barman said she’s unaware of anyone, white or otherwise, being forced to sell their homes. She said ethnic Chinese have been a big part of Vancouver since its inception, and that Chinese labour was instrumental in building the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Jang said the University of New Brunswick should reconsider whether it wants to have Duchesne on campus. “I would not feel safe [attending there] knowing that someone like that was on faculty,” he said.

Reached by Skype at his home, Duchesne said he was born in Puerto Rico and arrived in Montreal when he was 15. Other comments he has made have also been controversial, but he denied that he is racist.

“The whites who created this country are supposed to be bending over backwards in a state of shame for having built the best country in the world,” he told CTV News.

    “Jang said the University of New Brunswick should reconsider whether it wants to have Duchesne on campus. “I would not feel safe [attending there] knowing that someone like that was on faculty,” he said.”
    He doesn’t like the statements of one white, so the white should lose his job. Perfect logic.

    • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

      Maybe Vancouver ought to reconsider whether they want such manipulative parasite in their province or nation?

      • Oil Can Harry

        Yes, Asians are parasites. They move to white nations, take the sides of blacks, hispanics and Muslims against us and then make outrageous shakedown demands like this racial arsonist Kerry Jang.

    • willbest

      Perhaps if you don’t feel safe someplace, you should leave.

      • WhiteGuyInJapan

        No, silly. Just whine about everything and the magic white people will clean it up for you.

        • benvad

          Ditto

    • AmericanCitizen

      Another hallmark of the end of civilization. White Canadians apologizing to Chinese immigrants. I’ve heard it all now.

  • JackKrak

    And – for the third article on AmRen today…

    It’s White people’s fault.

  • ncpride

    Jang said the University of New Brunswick should reconsider whether it wants to have Duchesne on campus.

    Because God forbid Whites EVER stand up for themselves. I say go ahead and continue with the White bashing and hating…. it WILL eventually backfire as anyone who reads through comments sections these days on issues about race will see. It’s been a slow awakening, but it IS happening.

    • dd121

      I see a lot of people on CNN stand up for white people. They’re folks who I have never seen post on AR or any conservative site with which I’m familiar.

      • HE2

        Yahoo, as well. The comment sections are becoming aligned with what we discuss here. Thankfully, people everywhere are fed up with black/brown/yellow whining victim bull bleep.

    • gemjunior

      Yes, it’s definitely happening, and I am noticing it all over. Let them keep it up as you say, it will be better for us in the long run.
      Duchesne doesn’t seem repentant and he sounds like he will stick to his guns and not apologize like all the other stupid idiots who cave in, cringing and whining about how sorry they are for saying what they thought they meant at the time but now realize how “insensitive” they were….

  • Chinaman vs Puerto Rican in Canada.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Yes, Canada is descending into a multicultural third world mess where racial foreigners fight among each other for crumbs at the white man’s table.

      • Pro_Whitey

        At least Duchesne seems to have some respect and gratitude for what he has been able to enjoy in Canada, unlike the never satisfied blacks, browns, and yellows.

        • M.

          Exactly. If the racial aliens living in Western countries really knew their interests, they would side with whitey to keep their host country majority white.

          That said, Mr. Duchesne look pretty white to me.

          • HE2

            The late, great Raul Julia was Puerto Rican. So was José Ferrer.

  • David Ashton

    Ricardo Duchesne is a great and good academic. Support him by buying his superb book on the uniqueness of western civilization.

    • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

      Got a title and/or a source for buying it?

      • Martel

        The Uniqueness of Western Civilization. Brill Academic publishers, available on Amazon. Kevin Macdonald and Fjordman(Gates of Vienna/Frontpagemag) wrote reviews on it.

    • ViktorNN

      Thank you for pointing out that Duchesne is an academic who has done some great work.

      This story is heartening – this Duchesne fellow really seems to have his head on straight.

  • M.Magog

    “Clearly he is exploiting White ideas to advance the ethnic interests of the Chinese, utilizing the same white guilt our educational institutions inflict on White children,” Duchesne wrote.— WOW, the Chinese play the same game as the jews do!

    • HE2

      No, the Chinese are doing what the Chinese do. Advance the Chinese cause no matter what it takes, be it whining, cheating, sleight of hand, slander. Get er done.
      Good on the Professor. Well done.

  • Well done to the Professor. I think he is right on the money, on all aspects in the excerpt.

    As for the race-hustler who wants to expand White guilt and act in the interests of “Asians” (by using what is effectively a different country and a different set of values as leverage)…… look how easily it switches……

    On the one hand, he is self described and recognised as an Asian, ethnic Chinese, who ought to see redress for past injustices and ‘racism’. Yet, when challenged over his historic based hustling in the name of his ethnicity and identity….

    “Jang, who has complained to Duchesne’s university, said he is third-generation Canadian….”When the professor starts talking about how I should be worrying
    about what they’re doing in China, I think: I’m Canadian”.

    From the article: “In his blogs, Duchesne also claims that ethnic Chinese “altered a formerly elegant, serene, community-oriented British city of Vancouver, turning it into a loud, congested Asian city (still attractive only because of the architectural and institutional legacy of past White generations.)”

    I think that is a common theme, even outside of Canada.

    “It is time Whites show respect for themselves and stop kowtowing”…… well done that man. I hope that rings in the ears of many people.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Someone should bring up China’s lack of diversity.

    • WhiteGuyInJapan

      The grand irony is that when white expats in Asia complain, Asians usually tell them what to do with their complaints. Speaking from personal experience.

      • HE2

        White guy, are you racially “profiled” in Japan?
        A member of my zendo lives in Japan, but comes home to Berkeley for visits.
        He reports that on the streets, if seen, a policeman might follow him. He has also observed others in Japanese officialdom eying him with suspicion. He calls this strange phenomenon the equivalent of “profiling.”

        • WhiteGuyInJapan

          Me? Not really. My interactions with the Japanese police have been infrequent and rather pleasant. Some of my Asian-American co-workers report being stopped by the police from time to time. Check IDs and on your way.
          The stereotyping I experience is more personal than legal. I am a white guy, so many Japanese are surprised I can use chopsticks or like sushi. Silly stuff.

          • HE2

            Ah, good, glad to hear you are not harassed.

            Zendo mate has pale skin, copper red hair and green eyes. Though he has lived in Japan for years, he would stand out anywhere for his physical beauty.
            Maybe that has something to do with it.

          • HE2

            In this country, an observation as you describe, a native’s surprise at a Westerner’s facility with chopsticks, in the case of blacks, a White’s surprise at a black with a PhD in Physics or E.E., might be interpreted as a “micro-aggression.”
            That is how crazy it has become here.

          • WhiteGuyInJapan

            Yes, there is a whiny American guy here who used that term a lot. Somewhat petty. Still, it is shocking how largely ignorant and incurious many Japanese are. “Do you have the internet in your country?” “Hell yeah, Al Gore invented it!” 😉

          • HE2

            A White ex-pat in Japan complains about microagressions perpetrated by the natives of his adopted country? That is funny, WhiteGuy, but sounds all too familiar.
            Not surprised at the Internet question; Japanese [in my experience] are somewhat childlike and naive by nature.

          • WhiteGuyInJapan

            Yes, the Shire is a bit of a cocoon or womblike. Not entirely complaining.
            I am also an American and experience similar things, but I am not Rudyard Kipling with a drive to “civilize the savages” and such.
            Japanese waitress hands me a fork? That’s racist! Pfft, laugh it off.

      • WhiteGuyInJapan

        Sorry to respond to myself. Asians in Western countries complaining about racism really burn my hide.
        1. Asians had the least painful entry to the US. They came voluntarily for jobs.
        2. Their mean and median scores exceed that of the White majority. On average, a successful group of people.
        3. Many Asian nations are highly homogeneous, their cultures are highly collective with tendencies towards intolerance and xenophobia.
        Yet when Suey Park and Amy Tan starting bitching, the silly white people start crying and whipping themselves.

    • frank

      I believe h.i.m government that’s bringing them here are stupid government does not see or they are getting paid off by China they are here to take this over they are the enemy and the only enemy of the white American race

  • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

    Whites must relearn much of what whites knew in the 19th century.

    • benvad

      We’re idiots but we can’t come to grips with it.

  • Giovanni704

    The professor committed two sins. (1) It is politically incorrect to use the word “White” in any way that does not fit the evil White narrative. (2) Racial identity is permitted to racial minorities, and never Whites, because it is reactionary, i.e., a defense against White aggression.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    “When the professor starts talking about how I should be worrying about what they’re doing in China, I think: I’m Canadian. I’m expected to be treated like anyone else,” Jang said.

    _______________________________________________________

    You’re not Canadian. You’re just another non-white parasite sponging off taxpayer dollars in what used to be a white man’s country until the regime change of the late sixties. This was largely engineered by two traitors named Pearson and Trudeau.

    You ignorant, arrogant racial foreigner. Only white people can be Canadian.

    • kjh64

      Yes, it is just like no White person could ever go to China and be Chinese. Even if she or he could be granted citizenship by China, s(he) could never be Chinese, a citizen yes, Chinese no. Funny thing though, China does not allow non-Chinese to become citizens, they don’t allow immigration. I’m not talking about foreign expats who live there, they allow a few of those in but they do not allow foreigners to take citizenship.

      • Paleoconn

        You should just use ‘he’ instead of the he/she business. As Churchill said, the male embraces the female.

    • benvad

      Right on.

      • benvad

        I had to come to Japan to really appreciate that. When you leave the bubble it really bursts on you, the real world doesn’t by the multi Cult one bit.

        • HE2

          Nope, ben. It’s Japan for Japanese and no one else.
          When they visit Hawaii, it is in large groups of tourists, all with five cameras around their necks, and they are LOUD!
          Chinese are loud too, and pushy.
          I was in a Paris department store holding a handbag intended for purchase, the last one of its kind.
          A loud gaggle of Chinese were near. One of the women ran up to me and forcibly grabbed the bag; she wanted it. I sort of arm wrestled her to get it back.
          Later, my hotel concierge said he hated to see a group of Chinese tourists booked because they are loud, rude, causing other guests to check out.
          Believe me, our Pacific Coast is no better off with the Asian hordes.

          • frank

            the Asian hordes coming to America are filthy dirty loud, have no Western European manners, they are A threat to white society, they are the real enemy of the white race we better wake up before it’s too late

        • ElComadreja

          Yet they worship American pop culture. Goddamned hypocrites.

  • Shadow

    Professor Duchesne said: “It is time Whites show respect for themselves and stop kowtowing to the Chinese.”

    I say: Us Whites here in America should follow Prof.Duchesne’s advice to show respect for ourselves and our fellow Whites,and likewise stop kowtowing to the blacks,Mexicans,Central Americans,Arabs,and,of course,Chinese,etc.

    • paul marchand

      Well, I don’t know about the Canucks, but here in the US, we gringoes must do more axx-kissing, judging from what Eric Holder said the other day. Fifty years of 24/7/365 aint enough. We crackers must do more. And be less cowardly in the process, and speak more viciously of ourselves.

  • IstvanIN

    There’s no talk of compensation from the city at this point, but any compensation would likely come from city tax funds, which are taken from a diverse city population–about 50 per cent white, 30 per cent Asian, and 10 per cent South Asian, according to the 2006 census.
    Compensation for what? For not being allowed to invade Canada in years past? Should Whites who were not allowed to emigrate to Canada be compensated (or their heirs).

    And notice how compensation might be unfair because non-whites might have to chip in.

  • antiquesunlight

    This guy is awesome. It takes real guts to say things like that in academia. I hope he fights tooth and nail.

  • John R

    Whites show self-respect? Geeze! We can’t have that. Must keep browbeating Whites.

  • Lion’s Mane

    Here’s a chance to “have a conversation about race” (?) with an anti-racist on YouTube. He seems to be inviting comments: Enter in the YouTube search box: How Much Sunlight Can “Race Realism” Take? Or his other rant: Atheist AND Racist? Sadly, it’s possible. [I don’t know if there’s any value in trying to reason with Liberals, as their minds are closed, but perhaps some may want to try.] If you don’t want to comment, that’s fine. It’s just that one can point out his videos and try to dissect his dismissive statements.

    • Stan D Mute

      I’ve reached the point where I no longer care to bother. If they are too stupid to see how VASTLY different Africans are and how destructive, chaotic, and corrosive they are to white civilization, they’re too stupid for me to waste my time.

      • Lion’s Mane

        I’m with you on this. Whites who lack compassion for their race, and are indifferent to its survival and welfare, are just going to have to discover what truth, if any, they can, all on their own. I cannot be bothered with them. In fact, trying to enlighten them only makes them more radical and closed-minded.

  • dd121

    Again, the truth is never a defense with liberals.

  • The Final Solution

    I love how they try to make it seem like the Chinese have always been a part of Vancouver. Typical leftist revisionist history. “We’ve always been multicultural, we’re a nation of immigrants” no Canada is a nation built with true grit on the backs of white men.

    • IstvanIN

      Largely British men I might add.

    • JDInSanD

      “Chinese labour was instrumental in building the Canadian Pacific Railway” – Even in Canada the Chinaman’s only claim to fame is workin’ on the railroad.

      • Matt Turner

        A dead “Chinaman” for every mile of the Line. Or so the legend goes. Well; crack another Heineken, I guess, and cheers.

  • Lion’s Mane

    Prof. Duchesne is very brave and a man of strong principle. He is also wise. He understands what’s at risk. He deserves our moral support. There are far too few courageous academics like him.

  • Emblematical

    “but he denied that he is a racist”
    For goodness sake, when are people going to stop being so defensive whenever someone wields the dreaded ‘r’ word?
    ‘Racist’ is a meaningless word. ‘Racism’ is a meaningless concept.
    We shouldn’t buy in to these B.S. concepts at all. Just ignore them and respond by focusing on things that are real.

    • Paleoconn

      The correct answer is ‘your labels mean nothing to me’ or ‘so what’.

    • Theodora Angelina

      Return fire with their own word. Kerry Jang is a racist ethnic Chinese who means to dispossess white Canadians of their heritage and their country.

  • Matt Turner

    Kerry Jang: “I would not feel safe there”? Screw you hippy.

  • Matt Turner

    And the Vancouver Canucks suck. Go Oilers.

  • Paleoconn

    Robber barons imported Chinese to Canada a century ago, and then blamed the riots against these Chinese on racism. The Whites were merely defending their jobs, homes, livelihoods. Their existence was threatened by these newcomers, so they fought the only way they knew how. Later, Chinese buying up real estate in Vancouver have made the city unaffordable.

  • Theodora Angelina

    Steve Sailer wrote a piece for VDare the other day about the rich Chinese coming to the US and Canada. Why are they coming? For the same reason all the other non-European hordes want to come here. They want to come to some nice, clean, well-organized country whose institutions were set up by non-Chinese.

  • IKUredux

    Gosh, I’m gonna spend a lot of time thinking about this. O.K. I’m done. Hey Chinks! Get the hell out of what is now referred to as North America! I have been told that your average I.Q. is one hundred and five. Sooooo, you guys are way smarter than we Whites. That would imply, that you guys would be way better at a civilization, right? So, why in hell are all you little rat bastards illegally coming into MY POUSA.? Why are all you oh so smart little dicked zipperheads, insisting on going to Universities here in the POSUSA? Why haven’t you developed world renown universities that people are clamoring to get in to?

    • frank

      like I said before beware of the Asians they are a real enemy 2 white America,,the other minorities in America are pretty stupid you control them by dangling a treat just like a pet,, asians are very sneaky, they smile in your face, they take over businesses work exclusively with cash only, they hide their money , only buy from other Asian business, turn once good white neighborhoods in to section 8 slums , buy all the properties and renting them to ghetto moms, do not put a single cent back into the American economy.. they hate white Americans they are here to take us over and we are letting them , we better wake up before it’s too late.

  • rightrightright

    So unless Whites are deemed “guilty” he doesn’t feel safe? Very odd.

  • LHathaway

    50 years from now, if whites are still around, whites will still be on the short side of affirmative action policies. The reasoning, 50 years from now, will be that Asian’s in 2014 were ‘discriminated against’ in higher education. Context doesn’t matter. The fact Asian’s in 2014 are in some cases discriminated against by affirmative action policies in university admissions won’t matter either. Whites are forever be labelled the evil ones.

  • paul marchand

    There is nothing wrong with a contract amongst NEIGHBORS, attempting to SAVE EACH OTHER, that states, for instance, that a house sale needs a minimum of 50% approval of those that are participants of the contract / covenant. It is simple FREEDOM, and if they are of the opinion that black intrusion, for instance, in the neighborhood (this is all FREE WILL CONTRACT, repeat) is unsettling, so be it, Cool. Had the federal beast not outlawed this in the US, Detroit would still be a civilized city. New Orleans would have many great communities. ADD freedom of choice in schools, without the FORCED (vs voluntary) intrusion of those (as a whole) that are louder, more boisterous, more misbehaving, less literate, much more prone as teens to be murderers, drug users/pushers, interracial rapists….had the TRAITORS ( e.g. feminists) amongst whites not colluded with the other leftist factions, and New Orleans, for instance, would be a GREAT CITY, not a remnant of the past, with a high level of disfunction.

    • paul marchand

      Conversely, of course, if a group of black property owners, in order to keep their community “chocolate”, had a similar contract (free will, property owners) in reverse, just wonderful.

  • silviosilver

    Barman said she’s unaware of anyone, white or otherwise, being forced to sell their homes.

    I’m unaware of anyone, negro or otherwise, being forced to commit murder, use drugs or drop out of school but lefties like Jean Barman sure do insist that society makes people do it.

  • yes, just be an honest white person, like the reporter for News12 in New Jersey named Sean Bergin who just lost his job

  • WhiteGuyInJapan

    ” The typical White person who moves to Japan is a high IQ, low testosterone man who is most likely highly educated and comes from the upper middle class. ”
    Um, yes and no. Most of the Westerners here have at least a bachelor’s degree. (Which is not necessarily a sign of intelligence, apparently.) We typically work in education,IT and finance.
    As for testosterone levels, I have no solid data on that. Informal observation, I see a lot of white geeks reading comic books and playing video games on the trains. I’m a kickboxer myself, so there is a spectrum.

  • dubium

    Before 1842 China would basically not even let foreigners step off the boats in Chinas harbors. Do your trade and get out was the policy. Any foreigner found inside China would have been killed or jailed or deported instantly. This was only changed because they were defeated in war by europeans, they themself are still today not happy with this and foreigners are still not really welcome in many parts of China and in 1883 they certainly were not. So any chinese people should just shut up and stop whining. Most other “minorities” are very similar about their position this. Still most dumb whites do not see, or understand this.

    “The defeat of China by Great Britain in the First Opium War resulted in the Treaty of Nanking in 1842 which opened five Chinese port cities: Guangzhou, Xiamen (Amoy), Fuzhou,Ningpo, and Shanghai to trade, residence by foreigners, and missionary activity.

    In the Second Opium War (1856-1860) Great Britain and France defeated China. The Convention of Peking in 1860 opened up the entire country to travel by foreigners”

  • archer

    The good news is that more and more people are getting tired of being fleeced by the “immigrants” that don’t belong here in the first place. I’ve been to Toronto many times where they have a fairly large Chinese community, they bring nothing of any value there only more noise and confusion. If you want to live in a majority Chinese city you should move to China and good luck to you.

  • WhiteGuyInJapan

    1. I was speaking of the history of Asian immigration.
    2. Post-60s, I don’t know of any regular or systematic discrimination against Asians.
    3. I don’t think the US should copy the Asian nations, but their policies and attitudes stand in sharp contrast to the Eloi Swedes and the HIV of the US.

    “Many people of all races around the world are trying to learn a language that belongs to a different ethnic group. What they do in their spare time is not your business.”

    It’s one thing if you want to learn another language because you want to be bilingual for whatever reason, it’s another to learn another language because you want to pander to another ethnic group has come into your country in large numbers as immigrants aka allowing yourself to be colonized.

    :Upper class people of all races tend to be arrogant and rich. Have you ever met any upper class White Americans?”

    Sure upper class rich people of all races and nationalities tend more toward the arrogant side. However, rich White Americans belong in America and they’re our jerks, rich, arrogant Chinese belong in China, not being imported into Canada.

    He didn’t say it was a province or nation, but it is in a province and nation and he was asking if those in Vancouver wanted this in their nation.
