Remembering Even the Worst of Our History Is Important

Rebecca Todd Peters, Times News, February 26, 2015

My third grader is a white child in a Title I school in our town. She’s writing a report on Harriet Tubman for her Black History Month project, devouring information and proudly sharing stories from Tubman’s life with our family.

{snip}

We talk together about Tubman, slavery and the history of racism in the South. As a white mother of two white daughters, I spend a lot of time thinking about how to educate my children on the racism that exists today in our communities and lives and how it is connected to the history of our country.

It is imperative that I teach them that their white skin is a privilege in a country where brown people are discriminated against in both conscious and unconscious ways.

But talking about privilege is hard, and not just for parents. For most people with privilege, talking about it makes us uncomfortable. Admitting that we have privilege seems unseemly at best, but worse than that, for many of us, it feels arrogant.

The fact that people have difficulty even recognizing their own privilege is well documented and one of the reasons that privilege is so hard to address as a cultural phenomenon. For starters, how do I teach my children about social privilege without reinforcing social privilege? It’s not easy, but it certainly won’t happen if we ignore it or pretend like we don’t have it.

{snip}

The history of lynching in the South is just one of the pieces of our past that has largely been erased from our physical landscape and thus, for too many, from our consciousness. It is much easier for whites to remove ourselves from the reality of lynching when it appears as a list of horrors in a textbook than it is if there was a memorial marker down the street from our house or in the middle of our town.

{snip}

How much of our own white privilege is built on the history of their actions? What might accountability look like in a discussion of lynching in the South?

We must learn how to distinguish between guilt for our privilege (implying some wrong behavior on our part) and accountability for our privilege (implying action that challenges the unjust reality of white privilege).

Accountability in the case of lynching might include memorial markers, increased attention to the motivations and effects of lynching in our collective past, as well as careful consideration of how the history of racial prejudice, violence and terrorism continues to shape race relations in the United States in the 21st century.

Accountability for people of privilege must include breaking out of the safety of our cocoons of privilege and building relationships with people across lines of difference. It must begin with acknowledging and examining our privilege and then figuring out how to use our privilege to address the ongoing forms of injustice that we see in our neighborhoods, our communities, our country, and the world.

For our family, it also includes supporting our public schools, talking about Harriet Tubman at home, and encouraging our children to make the connections between the history of slavery and the conditions of poverty and injustice in our community and in their schools.

    As with so many other slobbering profiles of all-to-perfect liberals, it’s hard to tell if it’s a real story or a sarcastic parody from a right-wing caveman like me because they read the same.

    • Chip Carver

      Likely it’s instructional material for all those lowly middle class Whites to absorb as the constant browbeating continues. These things are always written the same way, coming off as lecture designed for people who have the brainpower of your average 2nd grader, matching the opinion our masters have of most Whites.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Why do we have so many anti-white narratives/myths/stories?

        White children are brainwashed to believe that the White race are nothing more than tyrants, slavers, genocidal colonists, warmongers and lynchers with no redeeming qualities. “Diversity is a Strength” and “We all Bleed Red” and other nonsensical mantras have been forced down our throat for five decades.

        This is a very deliberate program of White genocide.

        So much of the cultural marxist anti-White ideology is built on theory, ideology and OPINION, not fact – yet in the hands of an anti-White it becomes a weapon to use against the White race.

        “Diversity” = White Genocide.

        Pass it on.

        • Marilyn Rosen

          Great post and the pictures depict reality

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          I hate that “we all bleed red” BS. Dogs, cows, etc, all “bleed red” as well, are they our equals? It’s such inane horse sh*t that is so easily disproven by simply observing reality! The moronic BS people fall for, there IS a sucker born every minute. Ugh!

          That bottom pic is awful. Is it from South Africa?? I keep those people in my prayers…heartbreaking.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            It could be any White country – the U.S., France, England or South Africa. Attacks by non-Whites is happening increasingly in ALL White countries.

            Here’s one from Sweden – this precious little boy was attacked by a non-White at his now “diverse” school because he has blue eyes.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            Here are a few graphics – of MANY – from South Africa.

            I’ve seen far worse – that I won’t post here, but I think every White needs to take a good, hard look at these photos because this will be our fate as soon as we are minorities in our once-homelands, lorded over by hostile non-Whites.

            We either separate completely from non-Whites or expect to be slaughtered by them, as Whites are being tortured, raped, and murdered in the most vile manners possible in SA and Zim.

          • ElComadreja

            I have also seen those pictures. Western media gives the impression that SA has become a multicultural paradise when in reality it’s a black-run Hell on earth.

          • ElComadreja

            The suicide gene is strong among Scandinavians.

          • ElComadreja

            It’s like that idiotic pic on the internet that shows everyone with the same bone structure. A total lie. White men and women don’t even have the same bone structure. Negro skeletons have marked differences.

  • Susannah

    No Whites… no Western Civilization, no United States of America, no modern society replete with inventions and accomplishments which the whole world takes for granted. The world should be grateful and we should never apologize.

    • MeanWhiteBoy

      black privilege = being as tall as a tree and hanging on a basketball rim like a weed making 20 million a year. white privilege = having a 140 IQ with a great work ethic as company CEO, making 20 million a year

      • Nancy

        And don’t forget the black privilege of AA quotas in hiring and school admission practices; set-asides for government contracts; public-sector job creation for otherwise-unemployable blacks; welfare, food stamps, and “free” health care; plus the worldwide sanctions against criticizing the least-intelligent, least-productive members of society.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Celebrate White Achievement every day.

      Speak to your White children about White achievement every day.

      I do.

      The White race has crossed seas to colonize the most barren deserts and ice fields. WE have been responsible for the invention of the printing press, internal combustion engine, jet propulsion, manned space travel, transistors, telescope, computers and millions of other tech miracles.

      We have created first world medicine, discovered germ theory, vaccinations and antibiotics that have raised the age of death and standard of living for every human on the planet.

      We owe no one any damned apology for anything.

      Yet the cultural marxists who have control over White countries top to bottom via media, government academia and all cultural institutions insists that the White race must GO.

      We MUST stop this genocidal agenda that is being waged against our people. Our homelands are being flooded with violent, anti-White 3rd world immigrants who will compete with our children for resources.

      “Multiculturalism” = White Genocide.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        I firmly believe so much of the problem is that white people are ignorant of their history. So many people will sit in front of a screen and watch pure filth and drivel. WHY? Why would any white person WANT to watch something filled with Jews, and hostile and mocking towards whites? Yet people raise their children on this garbage and don’t understand why they turn out like they do! Tell your kids about white history instead. We have so much to be proud of, let them know it!

  • IstvanIN

    Women like this should be taken out and …………..I am sure you guys can fill in the blank.

    • Katherine McChesney

      I have some ideas of my own for this insane woman.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        She should be forced to wrestle the Fabulous Moolah.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Forced to live in a all black neighbour hood?

      • Forced? Sounds like thats just what she’s looking for, I say give it to her. She’ll be raped, abused, have her money and things stolen from her, and eventually she’ll die a brutal death at the hands of a savage.

        And absolutely nothing of value will have been lost.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          Take her innocent white children away first!

      • Jeff

        I would be willing to bet with a certainty that she lives in the whitest neighborhood she could find. But her friends are all so impressed with social awareness. Never mind that her children will pay a heavy price for her retarded enlightenment.

        On a bright note, I know a few people who had parents of this caliber and actually sent them to crappy, violent ghetto schools. To this day they regale their mother with the horrors she inflicted upon them. To the point that she breaks down in tears before they stop.

    • APaige

      Just wait until her daughters are abused, impregnated, and abandoned by her Brown boyfriend who was “discriminated against in both conscious and unconscious ways.”

      • Silly Frog

        statistically they will probably be raped by said brown men before more than two of those other scenes come true.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          And the mother, and her daughters will be blaming themselves, that the rapists are only trying to balance the scales of injustice and lynchings.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        She’ll be thrilled to have nappy headed grandchildren! No boring and racist white grandchildren for her, no way! I’d disown any child of mine that race mixes, and they’ll know it from the get-go, just like my mother told me. Conscious discrimination and I’m proud of it! NOT IN MY FAMILY.

    • John Smith

      Stripped naked and left in the ghetto.

      • IstvanIN

        Hmmm….that never occurred to me, it is more diabolical than my idea.

        • John Smith

          Problem is, she might like it. Just like Chelsea Manning going to prison

  • LHathaway

    Aliens descending from outer space, and only visiting this nation for a few short days, would have a better understanding than this woman of how things truly work in the US. They might potentially make better parent than this woman, too.

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    For our family, [addressing injustice] also includes supporting our public schools, talking about Harriet Tubman at home.

    Something else you may want to talk about Ms. Peter, if interested in righting injustices: “Young black men murder 14 times more than young white men” (African-American academic John McWhorter in TIME Magazine, august, 2013)

  • ncpride

    Yet another clueless, out of touch with reality, naïve White woman teaching her very own children to be ashamed of themselves. Mind boggling how such supposedly educated people can’t think for themselves and insist on repeating the same nonsense we have heard and read for years. At least get some new material to give the perception that you have a mind of your own, Rebecca.

    • APaige

      The original article lists this woman as “professor of religious studies and founding director of the poverty and social justice program at Elon University.” She is purposely sending her daughters to a poor school. She studies poverty and thinks that is were her children will learn. That should be a crime.

  • TruthBeTold

    I think these people are desperate for attention and community. They can’t find the praise they crave in their own white community so they try to make themselves heroes in black communities.

    Rebecca won’t be happy until both her daughters marry black.

    • richard garyson

      I agree. In a world of seven billion people, most of us will lead lives of obscurity and leave no mark upon the Earth. I am fine with that and so are most people. Leftists like these desperately want to be seen as heroes and so they take up non-causes like this to get attention – narcissistic supply. It’s safe, as there are no lynchings to stop. They will gain the approval of their peers in academia. Some whites will call them out for this self-serving traitorous behavior, and this will make them martyrs for their trumped up cause. They can champion black people without ever seeing one or stepping into a black neighborhood. Trash like this needs to be shamed. They need to know they are worthless and unaccomplished losers whose work is pointless and meaningful to no one. They are not heroes, they are pathetic traitors.

  • Usually Much Calmer

    This is child abuse, plain and simple.

    • Absolutely right, and I desperately hope that one day women (or men) showing signs of despicable white guilt and shame like this is cause for the children to be removed from that home.

      Harsh?

      Not nearly so much as leaving the children IN the home to be indoctrinated by this witch. THIS is where it begins folks … this article is so much more than it appears at first glance, it’s not just a worthless piece of trash preaching her own people’s destruction, this is a woman sacrificing her own children to the gods of diversity. Her daughters will grow up to be twisted and deformed like her, hungering for the blessed touch of diversity till one day, maybe, they wake up with a disgusting mulatto creature and no husband, penniless, abused, alone. Maybe dead, and that may be the least painful of the possible outcomes.

      This thing isn’t white any longer, and with the filth she’s preaching, her children won’t be white for long either. She is infinitely more dangerous than any black, and deserves no pity, no forgiveness, no redemption.

      • Jeff

        Either that or her children could turn out to be the most strident of race realists. I know some folks who had to endure this growing up. Suffice it to say, some actual racists would find their views “extreme”.

  • superlloyd

    Pathetic handwringing from a self loathing, white gulit-ridden, pitiful excuse for a mother. These drones are so damn uncritical in their thinking. White privilege is a meaningless meme and mantra used by libtards to disguise white superiority and values in order to turn them into something hateful for all the weak, white dupes out there.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Come mothers day, this woman in New Jersey deserves a box of negroid excrement instead of candy,.

      • DonReynolds

        My mother was NOT like this. He He.
        I am only sorry she did not live long enough to see the end of the story.

        • ElComadreja

          My mother and father both hated negros with a passion.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      It’s all social posturing with these a-holes. They don’t think for themselves. Maybe they are incapable of it, in fact that would be less horrifying than if they can, but choose to go along with the party line so they can “fit in”. If that’s what you have to do to be popular and get along with others, count me out. My children’s lives and safety aren’t worth social approval and anyone who puts their children at risk for it are evil, plain and simple.

  • I will be very disappointed if my daughter ever learns who Harriet Tubman was.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      You can always go to your local library and make books on the subject “disappear.” And you don’t even have to do anything illegal. Just move them to an out-of-the-way section nobody ever visits.

      • baldowl

        Where did I read recently about people moving books on the Holocaust to the fiction section?
        Oh, hi, Moderator.

      I don’t even know,did she invent crack or something?

      • Alexandra1973

        Nah, just led slaves north on the Underground Railroad.

        I read about her in elementary school.

        Sometimes a slave would want to go back and she’d point a gun at them and say “You go on or you die.” Read about that too.

        • Whitetrashgang

          Its a feel good black story, kind of like trayvon.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          Me too. We used to cross the Choptank River on our way to the beach, where she supposedly swam to freedom and I’d always roll my eyes because it’s barely even a river. But I guess a black swimming at all was really noteworthy. Anyways, it’s about all I remember of Harriet Tubman.

        • John Smith

          Ah, a original supporter of sending illegal immigrants into the country.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        A better project is studying Queen Elizabeth I, who sent the English navy out to sink the Spanish armada. Studying real women who saved civilization doesn’t seem particularly important to multi-culti America, however.

        • DonReynolds

          Queen Elizabeth I sent the English navy out to sink the Spanish armada……and then went with her small army to the beach where the invasion was expected and prepared to resist the invaders. Small and frail, she was prepared to die with her army on that beach than run away.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Yeah, let’s see Hillary Clinton try something like that…. what a wimp.

          • John Smith

            She came under fire at an airport in Bosnia, or so she tells me.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Her speech to her troops was amazing…it still gives me chills to read it.

            More fascinating white women include:

            Isabella of Castile
            Maria Theresa of Austria
            Catherine the Great of Russia
            Marie of Guise
            Queen Victoria

            Of course there’s more, but any of those women would be a fine role model for a white girl. There’s TONS of white men for white boys to look up to. Our house is full of children’s books on George Washington, Peter the Great, Robert E Lee, Henry Ford, etc. Real heroes with accomplishments that speak for themselves. No wonder they like to denigrate them in schools, can you imagine being a diversity and hearing about all of these exemplary whites and having nothing to compare in your own race? No wonder they’re so offended at white history!

      • phillyguy

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        Haha OMG, this reminds me of when I used to work for a big telecom company with lots of blacks, and one February they gave a Black History Month quiz. They put one on my desk so I filled it out (it would be rayciss not to, of course). So guess who won? Me. Oh man, if looks could kill! But I still have the African themed address book that I won that day. I didn’t last long at that job, probably not a surprise to anyone. I made fantastic money but money’s not everything. I’d clean toilets before I ever worked for or with blacks again.

        • John Smith

          We have a local Underground Railroad museum and the negroes hardly ever go, with most of those who do being public school students shanghaied to the place or guilty white liberals. They mostly don’t even care to learn about their so-called history. As an aside, the white liberal f–ker who ran P&G was behind getting it built, but at least his liberal democrat son lost his race to be state AG.

  • JohnEngelman

    “For our family, it also includes supporting our public schools, talking about Harriet Tubman at home, and encouraging our children to make the connections between the history of slavery and the conditions of poverty and injustice in our community and in their schools.”

    For the Tarczan family, it also includes active resistance to public school levies, talking about what a fraud ML King was, and encouraging our children to make the connection between blacks and urban destruction and crime, and how whites are unjustly forced by the federal government to subsidize the destruction of once vibrant white communities.

  • Who Me?

    For most people with privilege, talking about it makes us uncomfortable. Admitting that we have privilege seems unseemly at best, but worse than that, for many of us, it feels arrogant.
    ————————————-
    A privilege is something that not everybody has. Used to be you got privileges by earning them some way, and you were proud to have it and displayed it for all to see. If someone gave you a privilege, you said “thank you” and were still proud to display it because somebody thought you were worthy of something special. Since when did having a privilege become something shameful?

  • Lewis33

    “Rebecca Todd Peters is a professor of religious studies and founding director of the poverty and social justice program at Elon University.” This woman has been drinking the Kool Aid for a long, long time. No hope.

      She forces it down the throats of naive young whites – she ought to be strung up for her crimes.

  • connorhus

    Well I know one privilege this traitor “Mother of two daughters” is in for…. Raising her mulatto grand children all by herself if she doesn’t get some reality into that head of hers quick.

    • Alexandra1973

      I almost hope it does happen…then watch her try to explain why her grandchildren are displaying TNB.

    • DonReynolds

      It will be better than that. Her mulatto grand children will despise her for her whiteness and her white privilege……or they will despise her as an insane liberal who gave away their birthright on the altar of political correctness and cursed them with a lifetime of being neither black or white, and distrusted by both. The justice would be if her grandchildren took their revenge on the one person who did this to them.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        You’re onto something with the mulatto grandchildren despising the white grandmother. A girl around the corner from us gave birth to a mulatto male child (father skipped town, of course) and the white mother was left to raise the mulatto child at home with her mother. Their nextdoor neighbors, with whom I’m good friends with, report that this mulatto child has developed pro-black sentiments… no surprise there.

        • Weisheit77

          What’s the first prerequisite to be a black nationalist? White Blood.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Yep, they always, ALWAYS, turn on their white family. Doesn’t matter how much the white family loved them, took care of them, they ALWAYS hate them in the end. Never once do they identify with the white side. This goes for all mixed race children. The Asian/whites won’t be as militant about it but they resent the white parent, same with any other diversity/white mix. Blood is blood and white being the recessive gene, what does anyone expect?

          • Who Me?

            Mulattoes and other mixed people cannot self-identify as white because they are NOT white. They know it and so does everyone else.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Oh I know it too, but it seems like these delusional family members that raise these vipers don’t have a clue. If they knew it, why waste the time and effort? You’d think the mixed breeds would be at least grateful for being raised in a stable, loving white family, but their blood is what it is so they are only doing what their genes compel them to do. The one drop rule exists for a reason!

          • DonReynolds

            The one drop rule may be popular but it is not practical. In the bad old days, your race was whatever race your mom happen to be. They had no clear understanding of genetics so they had no idea that 60 of your genetic inheritance came from your mom. It was simply too difficult to know for sure who your dad might be but they were pretty sure about your mom. Combine this with a world with no oral contraceptives or IUD or implants, and you have plenty of fertile women.

          • bv

            I think that really tears at their soul, doesn’t it? I lived in Brazil and have noticed that all the population has an inclination to whitening like Sammy Sosa did.

            The Pardos will strive to marry with whites and also will pressure their offspring to do like wise. The end result you do get whites with a black ancestor from way back.

          • DonReynolds

            Mulatto children quitting a white family. I call that a “happy ending”. Good riddance.

          Anytime they want her money, they will just steal it. Nothing new here. They would kill her on the day she NO LONGER has any drug money to steal.

    If Whites have privilege, it’s because our people earned it. If your people don’t know how to succeed in life, don’t blame us for it.

    White privilege=Whites were born with a better package deal.

    Sorry, can’t help the hand you’re dealt.

    • John Smith

      They should keep evolving, maybe they’ll get there one day.

      • The crazy thing is, with all our welfare incentives and aid money to africa keeping blacks which would otherwise have died and thus been erased from the gene pool, I firmly believe that we are literally holding back their evolution.

        The cream is supposed to rise to the top, but what happens when the whole carton of milk just sits, unused, in the fridge? The whole thing spoils and sours. The traits which we are artificially propping up are sloth, greed, gluttony, etc. Given enough time they will get WORSE not better. Which is why we truly need to stop the insanity now.

        • John Smith

          By doing so, we’ve created even more unrest and hastened the destruction of the environment and biodiversity on the African continent.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    Yes, the worst of our history should be taught. Teach children that America’s second biggest mistake was electing nominal MOOSE-lim named B. Hussein O. whose mother hated white men, that his father is either an African Kenyan who hated the United States or a card-carrying communist named Frank Marshall Davis. And we could go on and on and on….

  • dd121

    Well, aren’t you the good little self-hating white liberal.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    I watched documentaries about Queen Elizabeth I, Margaret Thatcher, Ancient Greek Architecture, the Roman Empire, Lewis and Clark, Thomas Jefferson and Renaissance Art for White History Month,.

    Harriett who?

    • phillyguy

      Great reply.

    • John Smith

      At least the charade of Black History Month is over, not that you could really tell, since it’s always Black History Year.

  • DonReynolds

    Disgusting article by a worthless individual.
    There is no “worst of our history”. There is only history, and that history does not need a paint job to make it better or worse. Even if you are old, you probably had little or nothing to do with that history. Look history in the face and stop with the excuses. There is nothing to be ashamed about.
    Another reason it is so difficult to admit to “white privilege” is simply because it does not exist. Imagine that? ….an entire segment of the white population that feels no guilt whatsoever about things that happened before they were born and owes no debt or obligation to anyone because of their skin color. Yeah, GFY.

  • disqus_Xz3UA6obwj

    White privilege? I think they meant black privilege. The best place on earth for a black to live is in a white majority nation, the worst places, black majority nations. Even in America, the worst places for blacks to live are in high density black areas. Without the black privilege of living amongst whites, blacks would be in ruin.

    White privilege?

    How about 50 years of government-enforced anti-White mandates such as affirmative action, racial quotas, special “minority” benefits such as grants, loans, set-asides, etc. and so much more, all of which are institutionalized and discriminatory against the White race.

    Brainwashed White lefties are the only people on the planet who despise their own race and consciously fight to undermine it. It is anti-evolutionary and psychotic, yet White lefties believe it is a moral imperative to subvert their own people.

    As someone living in an area that feels more like a foreign country and English is increasingly rare to hear in public, I’d like to tell White haters to go suck it.

    This woman is engaged in child abuse.

    Consider the focus on lynching. In the entire history of lynching in the U.S. at most 5000 blacks were lynched (of course some of them actually were guilty of serious crime). Every five years blacks murder as many whites as that. I’m sure Rebecca Todd Peters isn’t teaching her third grader about that.

  • A Freespeechzone

    I think these self-loathing White liberals should give up all of their wealth and donate it some negro organization that seeks the destruction of cowardly liberal Whites.

    After all, these self-loathing White liberals got their wealth through White Priviledge.

    I’m keeping my wealth.

    • Ella

      I cannot stand the collective mentality. Most Americans were poor up to the 1940’s with an exception of small rising middle class that survived some economic collapses. Less than .5% of the American people were “rich” or privileged.

  • RacialRay

    Sorry, Ms. Rebecca Todd Peters, but I ain’t buyin’ it.

    Any “white privilege” I’ve ever enjoyed in my life has come by the sweat of my own or my white forebear’s brow. My white skin did not see me through high school and college and into a respectable white collar career, but my intelligence and diligence did. My white skin has not kept me out of trouble with the legal system in this country, but my general respect for of the laws of the land, even those that I do not particularly agree with, did. And my white skin did not guarantee that I would become a faithful husband to my wife and dedicated father to my children, but my innate moral imperative to do the right thing by those I love did.

    Feel free to fill your impressionable little daughters with any self-loathing white-apologist claptrap you please. But do not include me or the many millions just like me in your little exercise in self-flagellation. Like any “privilege” worth having, “white privilege” is earned by the deserving. I, for one, feel no debt of guilt such as you seem to be suffering.

  • LeonNJ

    Why do these kinds of white women even have white children? They seem they’d be in heaven if their kids have coal colored skin.

    • Ultimate187

      The irony is that there are several white race realists around here in mixed marriages/relationships who can’t even say their kids are white. That means this racially unaware white woman was more successful at propagating a white family than some white nationalists were. Let’s keep the criticism in check for those who truly deserve it.

      • Jeff

        That depends on what your view of “white” consists. My niece is one quarter Japanese. Her kids are one eighth. If you look really hard and know what you’re looking for, you may be able to discern a slight epicanthic fold around the eyes. But in reality, they are as blue and green eyed as you could hope to find in a Caucasian child. People on this site often get carried away with genetics. There is ALWAYS some mixing. It’s the normal state of mankind and is probably inherently desirable from a genetic point of view. But again, some on here differentiate between “white” and Caucasian. Seems rather pointless to me.

        • John Smith

          Not all mixing produces a negative outcome. It’s when you mix with defective, namely negroid, genetics that it becomes problematic. Considering the impact of Huns, Turks and Mongols on European History, Asian genetics may be more prevalent than many like.

          • bv

            Apparently it’s only within the last 40,000 years that we separated from Asians. I guess they are closest to us genetically?

    • bv

      Don’t worry they’re doing that abomination also.

  • Marilyn Rosen

    Oh for the love…I’m white and I had to work my behind off for years when I lived on my own, sometimes 2 jobs to make rent. Where does this whole idea of white privilege come from in the year 2015?? I have an AA friend who lives in a neighborhood richer than my own. In worked with an AA teacher who made more money than me. I don’t see how I am being labeled as ‘privileged’…please!

    • kikz2

      where does it come from? the marxist mind, parroted by black/brown mouths.

    • bv

      It’s a ploy to keep us disunited and angry. The controllers use us as an easy to blame scape goat so they can get what their nation really wants.

  • Ella

    What white privilege did a Polish Chicago sewer-digger, an Irish slaughterhouse worker, a Swedish miner or a Scottish lumberjack RECEIVE? The white poverty was gruelling in America under Industrialist giants so I’m so confused on the Lib’s fantasies of our current riches, inheritances, and privileges. Define privilege for me because skin colour is not enough.

    • bv

      Why don’t Matt Damon, Ben Afleck and the rest of these limousine liberals give up their fortunes to the down trodden instead of taking the little we have?

    I am so sick and tired of reading this tripe every day….when will this end? When are we going to put a stop to this nonsense?

        The even bigger enemy are the semites.

    • kikz2

      I’d like to pose a question to the learned Dr. Taylor, or any historian of the Southern Reconstruction from a Southern perspective. As evidenced by how hard the South fought integration, in relinquishing what it had fought to reclaim, namely the civil levers of government from illiterate ferals installed by the US. I’d love to know how it was accomplished so thoroughly?

      Did we just wait until the Blacks economically and physically broke the game at which time the US had lost interest, then pick up the pieces and start it over? The situation bore more than a few commonalities.
      I’d love to know how that all went down, as I think the perspective would be heartening as well as enlightening for the long row we now must hoe.

  • listenupbub

    Somebody said lynchings were not that common in the South. I have no expertise, do any of you?

    • InAFreeCountry

      Never saw one personally. I HAVE seen a pack of blacks beat the ever loving crap out of one white guy.

      • FransSusan

        That’s happened FAR more often than blacks were lynched in the past centuries.

    • 李冠毅

      I found this statistic on AmRen. In 86 years (from 1882-1968), only 4743 people were lynched, doesn’t seem that high. Also, lynching was not exclusive to Blacks; one-third of lynching victims were White.

      Lynchings: By State and Race, 1882-1968
      (Statistics provided by the Archives at Tuskegee Institute)
      1297 Whites
      3446 Blacks
      4743 Total

      • John Smith

        I’ve seen estimates of around 10,000 total, since the late 17th C.

        • bv

          I never heard of whites being lynched?

          • John Smith

            Most were white.

          • bv

            Are fair minded media omitted any mention of that of course.

    • FransSusan

      A lot of the stereotypes about the south are nothing but mythology. The common beliefs about the civil war, Lincoln, & slavery are myths that were/are taught in public schools for decades. Idiot movies such as 12 Years a Slave, The Butler, Django Unchained, and the TV series Roots, for examples, portray southerners as heathen, ignorant, cruel slave owners & negro haters. Most whites did not own slaves and the 1% who did were NOT cruel to them. Many of the lynchings that happened in the past were justified (whites and blacks). Take everything you read/hear about the south with a grain of salt and research it. It’s probably just government propaganda.

      • bv

        Whatever killing of blacks occurred whether it was intentional or unintentional was done to make it clear that there was punishment for any errors.

        Blacks like Arabs are lead and governed by an iron fist. This something Jewish liberals have never comprehended until it was too late.

    Oh, believe me, we’re on it! My kids know ALL about dangerous parasites, from baboons to banksters.

    I took my White Privilege to the store and couldn’t get any groceries with it. Black Privilege will get you free groceries and a free place in which to eat them.

  • Light from the East

    I think it is more important to learn the history of “Renaissance”, “Enlightenment”, and “Industrial Revolution” which lead to most of our modern world. It is too bad and too shocking that even some American Whites don’t know the above three and do some irrelevant reports about blacks. I am an Asian and I am sure some Whites don’t know the core of Western civilization better than I do meanwhile stick to those meaningless propaganda by some filthy politicians, scholar, administrators. I would ask – what have you learned from that report? what benefit do you get from that report? If you are black, then you will be a potential rebel or criminal. If you are non-black, then you will be brainwashed to love blacks because of the past, which can be interpreted subjectively, and to ignore the ugly truth of blacks “now”, which is based on reliable data and predictable pattern over time.

  • John Smith

    I had to squeeze my left thumb in my fist to prevent myself from gagging and vomiting at this white liberal mom supporting and enabling this multi-culti indoctrination of her own child. I wonder if she will pimp her out to a black boyfriend when she gets old enough, say twelve or thirteen, to help her perpetuate her deranged “racial harmony” delusion?

    • bv

      She should’ve sterilized herself or committed suicide to stop her white privilege from infecting the downtrodden races.

  • Jeff Traube

    She should tell her child that she has a future under the system our all-Europan Founding Fathers set up for their Posterity, but not unless we do something about black privilege for handouts, to act unruly, walk down the streets vs sidewalk; Hispanic privilege to enter the country illegally; and Hebrew privilege to dominate the media and finance while pushing diversity and multi-culturalism.

    • bv

      That’s about right.

  • Nancy

    And as a white mother of THREE white daughters, I spend a lot of time undoing the nonsense my children hear in the name of “education”, teaching them about the REAL anti-white racism that exists today in our communities, and how it is connected to the history of our country: namely, the failure of our forefathers to repatriate the Negro slaves who shouldn’t have been brought here in the first place.

    It is imperative that I teach them that their white skin is a blessing which should be preserved and defended in a country where white people are discriminated against in innumerable, deliberate, calculated ways.

  • FransSusan

    Oh, dear gawd. Reading that was like scraping fingernails on a chalk board. It’s just so painful to know that whites are that dumb. Government brainwashing.

  • listenupbub

    The way we make black rights advocates out to be the greatest people in history just teaches people to believe that whites were devils.

  • bv

    Another Social Justice Warrior ruining another child and brainwashing them with nonsense.

    Pathetic..

  • wretchedwhiterabbit

    In the U.S., Black kills more Black each year than were lynched by White Americans, during the entire history of Black lynchings. What would a discussion of Black accountability for Black violent crime and taking responsibility for improving their own communities, so that they don’t have to rely on government assistance, look like? Oh wait, what was I thinking?

  • Shank Henry

    I found a term recently that fits. It’s “ethno-masochism.” So, you can tell these White, self-hating creeps, “Stop projecting your ethno-masochism on me!”
