Can Racism Be Stopped in the Third Grade?

Lisa Miller, NY Mag, May 19, 2015

The form arrived in an email attachment on the Friday after winter break.“What is your race?”it asked. And then, beneath that, a Census-style list: “African-American/Black,” “Asian/Pacific Islander,” “Latina/o,” “Multi-racial,” “White,”   and “Not sure.”

The email, signed by the principal of Fieldston Lower School, urged parents to talk about these categories with their children at home because the next week, in school, the kids would have to check the box that fit them best.

{snip}

“I was like, Wait. What?” remembers one mother. Another quizzed her 11-year-old daughter as they were driving. “We have to go in our race groups” was how the girl explained it. The mother hoped her daughter had misunderstood.

In recent years, under the direction of its principal, George Burns, Lower has come to look a lot less like the white, mostly Jewish Riverdale neighborhood that encircles the school and more like the Bronx in general. Just fewer than half the kids at Lower are white.

{snip}

Lower has always been a progressive place, and in 2015, many are happy to see it as a kind of racial utopia, too.

{snip}

The program, which was also put in place this school year at Ethical Culture, Fieldston’s other elementary school, would boost self-esteem and a sense of belonging among minority kids while combating the racism, subtle or otherwise, that can permeate historically white environments. It would foster interracial empathy by encouraging children to recognize differences without disrespect while teaching kids strategies, and the language, for navigating racial conflict.

{snip}

It would be mandatory rather than voluntary, and built into the school day itself; it would compel participation from children of all races who would at first be separated into racial “affinity groups”; and it would start in the third grade, with 8-year-olds, an age when many of the kids have only an inchoate sense of what “racial identity” means.

{snip}

To all these ends, the third- , fourth- , and fifth-graders at Lower were to be divided once a week for five weeks into small groups according to their race. In 45-minute sessions, children would talk about what it was like to be a member of that race; they would discuss what they had in common with each other and how they were different, how other people perceived them, rightly or wrongly, based on appearance. Disinhibited by the company of racially different peers, the children would, the school hoped, feel free to raise questions and make observations that in mixed company might be considered impolite. The bigger goal was to initiate a cultural upheaval, one that would finally give students of color a sense of equal owner­ship in the community. Once the smaller race groups had broken up, the children would gather in a mixed-race setting to share, and discuss, the insights they had gained. Then–after all this–their regularly scheduled school day would continue: math, English, social studies, science, gym.

{snip}

Mariama Richards, the director of progressive and multicultural education at all Fieldston schools and the lead architect of the program, is herself black–an “equity practitioner,” her Twitter bio says, in public and private schools. In 2013, she had been wooed away from Georgetown Day, where she had done similar work for nearly a decade.

{snip}

White parents who objected to the program felt discomfited, fearful that if they voiced their concerns, they would be tagged as racists. They wanted their kids to talk about race, they insisted. But, as with most white liberals, they seemed to prefer to conduct the conversation on an intellectual level, considering it as a problem of history, policy, or justice–the kind of conversation unfolding already in Fieldston’s mandatory ethics classes. The much more intimate, idiosyncratic, lived experience of race–that is a harder discussion to have, especially when it probes reflexive reactions to difference (fear, disgust, mistrust, anxiety, curiosity, eagerness, attraction, admiration) that are sometimes heated, irrational, and not always pleasant. These are feelings the average white Fieldston parent was raised not to mention. This same parent who sends her children to Lower because she values diversity tends not to dwell on the fact that she has few close friends of color; that her neighborhood is almost entirely white; that her nanny or housecleaner or doorman has brown skin. The program at Lower was designed, and is supported in large part, by people who have spent their lives on the other side of that well-meaning silence and can testify that it’s no way to thrive.

On January 14, ten days before the new program was to launch, Burns, who is white, invited all the Lower parents to a meeting at Fieldston High School to meet [black multicultural education director Mariama] Richards and air concerns. About 65 people showed up. After short introductory remarks by Burns, Richards began her presentation, clicking through PowerPoint slides.

The meeting quickly grew tense. Parents took sides, and though the opponents were not divided, exactly, by race (the parent body is far too mixed for that), alliances for or against began to emerge. Antagonists interrupted Richards, asking to see more hard research on the benefits of racial separation and calling into question the qualifications of the 20-odd teachers and staff Richards had tapped to mediate the groups. By some accounts, Richards was shouted down. Others say she grew defensive and dismissive of parents’ concerns. “It was like, ‘Oh, you silly parents, you just don’t understand,’ ” said one mother who was there.

A Jewish parent raised his hand, according to another parent who was there. He grew up in the South, he said, where Jews were seen not as “white” but as something categorically different. When he was a child, the Ku Klux Klan attempted to burn down his synagogue. To lump Jewish children together with other white children is to ignore centuries of history, he said.

“When you walk in the room, I see you as white,” one person there remembers an African-American parent interjecting. “Your child needs to go in the white group.” Another parent remembers it this way: “You have the privilege of hiding behind your whiteness. And my child doesn’t.”

{snip}

Hort was one of a number of parents who in February posted a petition online protesting the program and citing possible “irreparable harm” to the kids; putatively a defense of the school’s traditional values, it also expressed a fear I frequently heard from this group, that the program would introduce a victim mentality to some children who might not otherwise have dreamed of it–and, by extension, a sense of guilt to others. On March 11, Hort sent a scathing letter to the parents with kids in grades two, three, four, and five at Lower. “The discussion of race should certainly be a part of our children’s education, but segregation of any kind is regressive, and separate is not equal as defined by the Supreme Court in 1954.”

{snip}

At no developmental age are children less racist than in elementary school. But that’s not innocence, exactly, since preschoolers are obsessed with race. At ages 3 and 4, children are mapping their world, putting things and people into categories: size, shape, color. Up, down; day, night; in, out; over, under. They see race as a useful sorting measure and ask their parents to give them words for the differences they see, generally rejecting the adult terms “black” and “white,” and preferring finer (and more accurate) distinctions: “tan,” “brown,” “chocolate,” “pinkish.” They make no independent value judgments about racial difference, obviously, but by 4 they are already absorbing the lessons of a racist culture. All of them know reflexively which race it is preferable to be. Even today, almost three-quarters of a century since the Doll Test, made famous in Brown v.Board of Education, experiments by CNN and Margaret Beale Spencer have found that black and white children still show a bias toward people with lighter skin.

But by the time they have entered elementary school, they are in a golden age. At 7 or 8, children become very concerned with fairness and responsive to lessons about prejudice. This is why the third, fourth, and fifth grades are good moments to teach about slavery and the Civil War, suffrage and the civil-rights movement. Kids at that age tend to be eager to wrestle with questions of inequality, and while they are just beginning to form a sense of racial identity (this happens around 7 for most children, though for some white kids it takes until middle school), it hasn’t yet acquired much tribal force. It’s the closest humans come to a racially uncomplicated self.

{snip}

The paradise is short-lived, though. Early in elementary school, kids prefer to connect in twos and threes over shared interests–music, sports, Minecraft. Beginning in middle school, they define themselves through membership in groups, or cliques, learning and performing the fraught social codes that govern adult interactions around race. As early as 10, psychologists at Tufts have shown, white children are so uncomfortable discussing race that, when playing a game to identify people depicted in photos, they preferred to undermine their own performance by staying silent rather than speak racial terms aloud.

{snip}

The fourth affinity-group session met on April 15, a cool morning that held the wet beginnings of spring.

{snip}

“I get to be with people I can share my race with, and I don’t feel uncomfortable about it,” says one third-grader, in the black group, who tells me the only other times he’s surrounded exclusively by black people are when he’s at home or with his basketball team. “We talk about how it’s important to know what your race is. We talk about the difference between being prejudiced and being racist. So I can know when someone’s being racist to me, and I can help other people know that, too. I can say I’m proud of being black. I remember my friend saying that the affinity groups are racist, but they’re not. They put you in a group of what race you are–I don’t think that’s racist at all. We get to make jokes and stuff, and comments. When we’re talking, we get to draw, we get to laugh.”

“It’s so fricking boring,” said a fifth-grader in the Asian group. “We do the same thing every week. The conversations we have are mostly about the tensions between whites and blacks, and never about Asians or Hispanic people. It annoys me sometimes that people are like, ‘Oh my God, people are so segregated.’ But we are never mentioned. It’s just frustrating, I would say.”

{snip}

George Burns likes to compare the program to sex education. If you teach children the clinical terms early and divide them into same-gender groups to enable frank talk, then by the time they’re ready to explore sex for real, they’ll have words for what they do and don’t want to do, causing minimal damage to their self-esteem.

I was not permitted to see the race-groups themselves–the school cited the privacy of the kids–but I watched as about 40 fifth-graders, full-blown tweens, participated in the mixed-group debriefing. A classroom teacher, Hazel Hunt, stood before them and encouraged members of the individual race groups to “share out” with their peers. The Asian group wanted to say that if you are Asian, you get lots of questions about your religion, and they wanted to mention that Asians come from all religious backgrounds: Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim. The black group wanted to say that people assume that if you’re black, you must live in a bad neighborhood; also that people are sometimes surprised that they go to Fieldston. The multiracial kids shared that what people thought about them depended on where they were–on the Lower campus or off it–and what they were wearing.

{snip}

The first time I meet Mariama Richards, she is smiling. Sitting in a small office at the Ethical Culture School, she appears confident and impassioned; if she feels any stress at her role at the center of a private-school tempest, it does not show. She sees it this way: At Fieldston, kids get very good at talking about justice. But unless the school gives them real tools to feel comfortable having difficult conversations about race, those innocent elementary-school friendships that the parents so cherish will inevitably dissolve. Those best friends in elementary school will by middle school cease to be friends, and no one will quite understand why. “They’ll end the friendship rather than wade in and have a dialogue,” Richards says. “It’s hurtful to a lot of the white students. It’s hurtful to the students of color. I like to talk about it as a loss. But we don’t understand where that loss comes from. We just know that we used to have this friend one time, and she was so cool, she was the world. And then something happened.” What happened, Richards says, was race.

{snip}

It is absolutely not her intention, she says, to lay on 8-year-olds a burden about white privilege or white guilt. “They have done nothing–nothing,” she emphasizes. All she hopes to do is to get a bunch of white kids in a room to recognize that they’re white. And perhaps to ask themselves, if they’re ready for it, “Hey, what does that mean?”

    Most whites fear being call a racist. I don’t know why except for herd instinct.

    • George Moriarty

      Most journalists would describe people including myself who post on sites like this or even believe in the ideals of a site like this as “Vile”
      The laws of this country prevent us from even having an open debate on immigration despite all of the obvious problems with Asian, African and Muslim crime and social disruption. Can’t say anything, that would make me a vile racist!
      They should reserve the term “Vile” for black on white sexual assault, particularly of elderly women in their own home and a list of similar race related crimes that would go on and on.

      • dd121

        The power of ridicule seems to be the most influential power on earth.

        • Lexonaut

          I believe there is a note to that effect somewhere in the Federalist Papers.

          • dd121

            Alinsky knew it.

        • Interested Party

          You are correct. Ridicule elicits shame. People who feel shame can be easily persuaded to do anything. I recall reading about the Titanic disaster. People who got into lifeboats right after the collision with the iceberg actually left them after they were ridiculed by other passengers for showing their fear. Needless to say, those who left the lifeboats to stop the ridicule died.

      • TrueNorthFree

        George, there is a brilliant website called the White Genocide Project that gives simple, powerful, effective step-by-step talking points on how to talk to anti-whites It tell you what you can say and also what you can say to people who will call you nasty names. It describes everything clearly.

      • Lexonaut

        “Most journalists would describe people including myself who post on
        sites like this or even believe in the ideals of a site like this as
        “Vile”

        I got banned from a flight simulation website because of something I had written on my own website. The moderator who banned me said that I was “nothing but a vile racsit”.

        I don’t mind being called a racist but I do mind being called vile.

        • George Moriarty

          Yes, I find it pretty hard to cope with being called “vile”. It is an awful word and I do not think it applies to me or any member of our family. We are just concerned that the Australia we once knew, particularly in our cities is being destroyed by inappropriate immigration. We are also concerned that there is absolutely no forum in this country where our views can be expressed or discussed.

          • Lexonaut

            I keep playing with concepts for a set of novels I probably will never get around to writing. One of them I call Pax Anglica, set in a future in which Great Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA have a) formed a currency union (but not a political one), b) evicted those of non-European descent and c) formed a mutual defense pact.

          • Red

            Sounds like Oceania from 1984. We’re half-way there with all of this PC/White Guilt garbage.

          • Lexonaut

            No, the idea is for the countries that recognize English common law to secede from the rest of the world.

          • TrueNorthFree

            George, we whites are fighting for our right to exit. We have the moral high ground. Anti-whites will call you every name in the book. This is a very effective silencing tactic to keep us from speaking the truth about the ongoing white genocide happening in all white countries.
            Join the growing world-wide grassroots movement of whites who simply want their race to survive.
            There is a series of brilliant podcasts on the White Genocide website called “beefcake’s bootcamp” The podcasts take you through exactly what to say, how to say it, how to deal with name calling, etc. When I listened to those podcasts it gave me strength and hope.

    • Sick of it

      Fine. The defectives can go live in Africa.

    • John Smith

      Because it comes with potential job loss and social stigmatization.

      • Lexonaut

        Which is why a retired person like me feels an obligation to try to spread the good word on Mediaite — and I think they’re starting to be a lot more tolerant than they probably were a year ago. I’m not the cause but I’m damn well going to exploit it.

        My wife and I are 71. She’s still working, weekends only, and asks that I not get her fired. However, the fact is that we can make it without her nursing income, and if we can’t stand up then who can?

      • dd121

        I don’t find talking positively about our race stigmatizing. But then I’m not a hate-filled leftist.

    • Ella

      Within a community, it is a form of shaming and shunning at the same time. It is a modern word for heretic and unbeliever of their scripts.

      • dd121

        It’s right out of the Alinsky play book. It shouldn’t be feared.

      • Spikeygrrl

        Leper! Outcast! Unclean!

        The last time someone called me a racist, I said (cheerfully), “Yes. I am. And…?” I even gave him time to respond, but he was still spluttering wordlessly as I wheeled myself away. 😀

        In pre-Revolutionary New England, “Yankee Doodle” was an insulting British term for Colonists. Until we claimed it, wrapped it up in a jaunty little marching tune, and used it to thumb our noses at the Brits who originated it!

        Could it really be that simple? Could reclaiming the word “racist,” and wearing it proudly, eventually rob it of its power to marginalize us?

    • Light from the East

      The “FEAR” is the biggest obstacle for white to overcome in the next few years.

  • Dave West

    I would almost be cute if it wasn’t so sad and downright irritating. Liberals and their foolish belief that racism is “taught.” All those whites in the Mississippi Delta must be “racist” because they learned it form their parents and not because the general area is 60 to 70% black.

  • Luca D.

    Only a liberal can demand that you acknowledge that race does not exist, while simultaneously teaching it as a social science and profiting from it as a grievance industry.

    • TrueNorthFree

      “Only a liberal can demand that you acknowledge that race does not exist,
      while simultaneously teaching it as a social science and profiting from
      it as a grievance industry.”
      Brilliant! I love it.
      That is pretty much what i say when social justice warriors say there is no such thing as race. I always point out the internal inconsistencies of that stance – whites are not allowed to claim “race” but every other group’s race is respected

    • Charles Martel

      Time to get out my “WHITE PRIVILEGE IS EVOLUTION that’s why Asians have it also” T shirt I wore to amusement parks last year. Even I was surprised no blacks are smart enough to read it to be offended by it

      “Only a liberal can demand that you acknowledge that race does not exist,

      My wife, who has been a nurse in the home health and now home hospice field for more than ten years, treats patients of all races all over the Denver Metro area. When forced to sit through a cultural sensitivity course at one point she came home muttering about Racial Stereotypes 101. 🙂

  • As early as 10, psychologists at Tufts have shown, white children are so uncomfortable discussing race that, when playing a game to identify people depicted in photos, they preferred to undermine their own performance by staying silent rather than speak racial terms aloud.

    Well, isn’t that what they expect of them? Is this supposed to be a bug to the people who keep communicating with their actions that this is really a feature?

  • TheCogitator

    I thought race was just a social construct. It is when our side wants to talk about it.

  • guest

    An adequate basis for all this might be a careful study of mass hysteria and mass “hypnosis”
    such as gave rise to our “Salem Witch Trials”. The most basic way to abolish racism is to inculcate into third grade children that their mother and father are no more special than the mothers and fathers of the other children. It is “racist” to love your own biological parents more than you love their parents. What refined mass insanity!!

    • Ella

      Maybe, this might be the initial steps to surrender your parents over to social authorities if they speak against the multicult doctrine uttering their private beliefs at home. You might take a look at Belorussia as a current example for dictatorship and imprisonment. We’ll have think cops soon enough like Europe in some parts.

  • George Moriarty

    They may be able to stop so called racism in the 3rd grade but I don’t think they will ever be able to stop it in the real world.
    Kids will eventually grow up and realise that we really are all different.

    • baldowl

      I was thinking something similar. The only way to stop white-toward-black racism is…no more black people?

      • WR_the_realist

        The left has decided that the only way to stop white-toward-black racism is to have no more white people. And given the demographic trends in all formerly white countries the left is winning.

  • connorhus

    Another words. We want to indoctrinate your children as early as possible to make the brain ashing stick.

    I have an idea take this one step further and segregate the children into different buildings until they graduate from high school.

    • TomIron361

      Brainwashing never works over time. It must be inculcated daily in the subject in order for it to last. Stop it even for a week and it starts wearing off.

      • Dr. Rieux

        Cultural revolutions rely on lies that fly in the face of realty and can’t be sustained forever. But true believers will, nonetheless, try moving heaven and earth and cause real harm to the innocent trying to do just that.

        Kristoff is of a kind with St. Juste, Robespierre, Lenin and Mao, and his comfy life protects him from the consequences of what he advocates.

        • Not for long. They’re eroding even their own ability to hide from the consequences of their insanity and violence.

  • superlloyd

    More anti white bullying by jealous, whining, unproductive blacks paid for by the white dollar. Separation in third grade, if not before, and evermore is the only answer to the problem of whites being abused and vilified by low IQ, AA, black failures.

  • Deep North

    “To lump Jewish children together with other white children is to ignore centuries of history, he said.”—-So Jews don’t identify as White….interesting.
    I’m still waiting for liberals to preach to Black students to stop beating up and harassing the lone White student in the school. Ask me how I know.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      They aren’t. They’re our most dangerous enemies because they hold a grudge.

      • pcmustgo

        Aw, come on…. I’m half Jewish and white enough- I post here all the time.

        • TrueNorthFree

          I personally know two Jewish people and they are both fantastic human beings. It is the elite multinational controllers that many people fear and hate.
          This comment will probably be flagged and removed.

          • DaveMed

            Why would it be removed?

          • TrueNorthFree

            I’ve had a bunch of comments removed on this site. I really don’t know why.

          • IstvanIN

            Organized Jewry, for lack of a better term, is our enemy, unfortunately, like us, the average Jew falls for the same rascist baloney we do.

          • Lexonaut

            “… the average Jew falls for the same rascist baloney we do.”

            Which means that Jews are about as dangerous to whites as whites are to whites.

            There is no such thing as organized Jewry because Jews don’t think as a bloc. If most Jews today are somewhat Zionist in spirit it’s only because Radical Islam gave them common cause. Even within Israel itself there is no unanimity of Jewish thought.

            What Jews have in common is mainly a) high IQ and b) fear of pogroms.

          • WR_the_realist

            You can always find some crazy left wing Jews to “prove” that all Jews are out to get us. That’s known as a biased sample. After all you can also find some crazy left wing non-Jewish whites to “prove” that all whites are out to get us. If there was a political race between Nicholas Stix and Hillary Clinton I know who I’d vote for.

          • JohnnyMangoes

            There are crazy left wing white people around too.

          • Lexonaut

            There are white crazies on both sides of the aisle. What’s your point?

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          There’s exceptions to every rule.

        • JohnnyMangoes

          I’d be careful of the water you’re wading into. Last time there was a mass white movement, half Jews got the oven as well.

          • John Smith

            Except those granted exceptions.

          • Lexonaut

            “… half Jews got the oven as well.”

            And people wonder why Jews are clannish, and they wonder why the smart ones are prepared to leave the countries of their birth and raising literally at a moment’s notice.

          • I know someone who calls them “high-functioning gypsies.” A fair assessment, I’d say.

          • Lexonaut

            Call them what derogatory names you like. They’re always going to be more successful than whites until the pogroms happen, which tends to kill off the Jews of lower IQ, raising the average IQ of the survivors even further and making them even more successful in the next place they go.

          • I see you really believe this, which is fine. I tend to measure a group’s success by its art, culture, music, world expansion, etc. It’s hard to argue that non-Eskimos are “more successful” than whites by that measure.

          • Lexonaut

            I”m sorry … I’m talking about Jews. What are you talking about?

          • I’m also talking about Jews, who are sometimes referred to with euphemisms here in hopes of dodging the hasbara censors. What did you not understand?

          • Lexonaut

            I have no idea what a hasbara censor is. Please explain.

          • “Hasbara” is an interesting search term in Google. Happy hunting!

          • Lexonaut

            Sorry, I have no intention of becoming an expert on anti-Semite jargon

            I calls ’em as I sees ’em. If site management chooses to delete my posts, or to let them stand, it wouldn’t affect what I write other than in simple lessons such as no longer including links to YouTube videos.

            If you want to continue this conversation you’re going to have to do it on my terms. If not, that’s fine too.

          • Naw.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            I’ll define it for ya….cut and pasted from Wikipedia:

            “While hasbara literally means “explanation”, its exact import in its current usage is debated. Gideon Meir has said that there is no “real, precise” translation of the word hasbara in English or any other language, and has characterized it as public diplomacy,[7] an action undertaken by all governments around the world with the growing importance of what Harvard professor Joseph Nye termed soft power. Gary Rosenblatt describes it as “advocacy”.[8]

            Hasbara has been described as “pro-Israel propaganda,”[9] and “the new user-friendly term for Israeli propaganda”[10] but while “propaganda strives to highlight the positive aspects of one side of a conflict, hasbara seeks to explain actions, whether or not they are justified.”[11]”

            So, it is essentially pro-Jewish propaganda that they don’t call propaganda, because that has a negative connotation.

          • Lexonaut

            And your point is …?

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Oh come on…the point is that they are actively engaged in shaping public opinion (with PROPAGANDA, not objective truth), in their favor. Why would they need to do that if they weren’t up to no good? Why do they need a massive, coordinated PR campaign? You really don’t find that fishy? It doesn’t disgust you that people are actively seeking to manipulate others with lies to work in their favor?

            None of this is starting to give you an inkling of perhaps, WHY, they are so hated?

          • Lexonaut

            “Oh come on…the point is that they are actively engaged in shaping
            public opinion (with PROPAGANDA, not objective truth), in their favor.”

            Of course they are — the Israelis, that is. They don’t want the USA to stop being an ally. If you were Israel what would you do?

            ” Why do they need a massive, coordinated PR campaign?”

            Because if they don’t do it there’s a good chance that the US will cut Israel loose, leaving her without a friend in the world. Israel is prepared to fight for her existence, but she hopes not to have to.

            You mean like the USA keeping from the American people the fact that we helped the neo-Nazi Svaboda party overthrow the Russia-leaning but freely elected government of the Ukraine?

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            If I were Israel, I wouldn’t treat the US as a golem and sic it on my enemies.

            Why are we responsible for what happens to Israel? Why should even one cent of our tax dollars go to fund them? Let the rich Hollywoodites, bankers, politicians, fund it with their own money. It might be OK if we didn’t have problems here in the US, but we do, and giving money to a foreign country and invading Middle East countries, and sending our soldiers to die for Israel just doesn’t sit right with me. It’s especially tragic and stupid when we stir the hornet’s nest in the ME and then allow millions of the same people we antagonize to come live here in the US. But you know who was responsible for the current immigration laws, right? Let them fight their own battles! IT IS NONE OF OUR CONCERN!

            We have NO business meddling in Ukraine’s affairs either. I certainly don’t advocate any of it. I am more of an isolationist.

            Many Catholics got death camps under Stalin. Other ethnic groups were targeted beyond Jewish equally well. It’s documented and underplayed in history and media.

            Yes, but who makes up the left-wing? Who are the leaders? They’re all a specific race/religion, every single time. That’s a heck of a coincidence!

            M$C, At the risk of spoilng a beautiful new friendship I have to say that if you really do feel this way you ought to study how it is that such a small number of Jews — perhaps 11 million in all — is able to control such a large number of people — seven billion in all.

            That would be a valuable trick to learn, and clever whites would then be able to turn the tables on the grudge-holding Jews, yes?

          • Alexandra1973

            I would like to know to what end these Jews are supposed to be controlling everything. I believe it’s the Catholic church, not the Jews, and I can tell you it’s so the pope can rule the world once again. The Reformation broke the pope’s stranglehold on the known world.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            You’d think so, but we can’t seem to work together as a racial group. We’re always at each others’ throats. Their religion emphasizes doing “what’s good for the Jews”. I’ve read a lot on the subject and when I try to explain it to others, they just don’t care. You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink, and if whites refuse to see black dysfunction, evil and violence when it’s right in front of them large as life, every single day, how could I possibly make them see this? Even explaining that most of our revered historical figures hated them and often talked about their control, heck, Henry Ford wrote a whole series of articles in the Dearborn Independent about them!

            This might really make me sound like a crazy person, but…how do they do it? There’s really no logic behind it, it makes no sense. So, perhaps there’s a supernatural answer. Jesus called them the Synagogue of Satan and said their father was the Devil, so perhaps that explains it. Or maybe I’m just nuts. All I know is that they have their hands in EVERYTHING, far beyond their proportion in society. Oh and of course, their blueprint for world domination, that “Russian forgery” of the Tsar (who they murdered along with his whole family) spelled it all out, and what it said would happen is definitely happening. Too many coincidences for me.

            They are the highest IQ group of all. The very things that cause whites to rise above the savages causes Jews to float to the heights of finance, law, medicine and science. That’s all that’s going on here — the legacy of high IQ.

Do you think that Jews would allow Gentiles to run Israel? Should they? Do you think that all the anti-Semitism in virtually every country was just jealous hatred?

            Well, if they don’t want us running Israel, why should they be running Western nations?

            Have you read Henry Ford’s book on the Jews?

            If Jews aren’t in charge in the US, then who is? I’d say the corporations, and who runs them? Who runs Hollywood, which influences almost every facet of Western life and culture?

          • Lexonaut

            “Well, if they don’t want us running Israel, why should they be running Western nations?”

            They’re not. They have a lot of influence in government because they float up to the policy making staff levels, but they’re not in charge and they wouldn’t want to be.

            “Have you read Henry Ford’s book on the Jews?”

            I haven’t read Ford’s book on the Jews. I know he was an anti-Semite. I also know that he was a business and manufacturing genius, just as Charles Lindbergh was a genius aviation pioneer. Both men were anti-Semites, which disappoints me but doesn’t change my respect for what they were able to accomplish.

            ——————–

            It’s mainly Jews, who invented the business. It’s not surprising that they’ve been able to maintain control.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Please, read Henry Ford’s book. If you read it and still don’t see it, then that’s ok, at least you gave it a chance. I forgot about Lindbergh, but he’s another good example.

            How did the Jews invent Hollywood? Edison invented the camera (and he was disgusted at the Jews glomming onto his invention). I know they were heavily involved, and pushing their filth back then, which led to the Hays Code, I think it was called, that put a stop to that for a while.

            I’m sorry, but you sincerely cannot believe Radical Islam and black Muslim Communists are in control of the US. Do you know who INVENTED Communism, and what it’s based on?

          • Lexonaut

            One Jew invented communism.

            Re Henry Ford’s book, if it’s a cheap Kindle download from Amazon I’ll buy it and read it.

            Jews invented the modern entertainment industry — movies and music alike. They used equipment invented by whites to deliver the services to the mass audiences, which they pioneered.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            One Jew invented it, thousands more used it as a weapon against the European aristocracy and are using it again here in the US. When almost every single person behind the downfall of nations is of a certain religion, I become suspicious. It’s a coincidence too big to ignore.

            There’s a certain “Tsarist forgery” in Ford’s book. It’s the heart of it all. If you can’t find his book cheap, I’m pretty sure you can find it somewhere online. Let me know when you’ve read it, I would love to hear your opinion.

            Thanks for being open minded. Most people are so conditioned (by Hollywood, media, books, all controlled by certain someones…) that they simply refuse to even consider the possibility. Hey, I wish I was wrong, believe me! I wish I was wrong about all of it, because the truth is too horrible. But we can’t run away from it….

            I don’t ever run from the truth. The trick is to distinguish truth from fantasy, and that usually requires reading many different sources and filtering their remarks to compensate for the biases that we all have.

            If I understand him correctly that’s exactly what Jared Taylor wants — that AmReners and others be open minded about things that are taboo at present.

I like the Jews exactly as much as they like and respect the Gentiles. Which is to say, not at all. Like blacks, their actions, not their race or religion, make them hated.

        An artificial grudge manufactured by media and other agitators. Today they are protesting as if the nation has made no progress at all since the 50s. They ignore the fact that civil rights laws eliminated most of their complaints. The nation enacted sweeping regulations to protect minorities in the nation. And of course we have seen a LOT of financial aid steered toward “righting historical wrongs”.

        The problem should be obvious, none of this has an end date. So it has become part of our culture to expect it. Not necessarily accept it. The grudge is being driven hard toward a financial payout. The promise being made is that our racial problems will go away tomorrow and blacks will just love white people for the rest of time, if the government writes a big check.

        Nobody actually believes this childish, racist hogwash. But they know all they need to do is keep whining so the cash and prizes keep flowing. Meanwhile their cultural psychosis grows like a tumor in our midst. Their greatest hatred is for white people and yet, it’s not racist because they are black? Who writes this shiit?

            No. In the early 40s he’d have founded the NAACP and the ACLU, and in the early 60s he’d have instigated the civil rights marches in the south.

    “I get to be with people I can share my race with, and I don’t feel uncomfortable about it,” says one third-grader, in the white group, who tells me the only other times he’s surrounded exclusively by white people are when he’s at home or with his hockey team. “We talk about how it’s important to know what your race is. We talk about the difference between being prejudiced and being racist. So I can know when someone’s being racist to me, and I can help other people know that, too. I can say I’m proud of being white. I remember my friend saying that the affinity groups are racist, but they’re not. They put you in a group of what race you are–I don’t think that’s racist at all. We get to make jokes and stuff, and comments. When we’re talking, we get to draw, we get to laugh.”………..

    “White parents who objected to the program felt discomfited, fearful that if they voiced their concerns, they would be tagged as racists.”

    So what if they see you as racists? Your children’s safety and well-being are what matter, not what our enemies think of you when you say that you’re against them indoctrinating your children. The people pushing for this anti-racism trash are our enemies who don’t care about your White children and they really don’t care about ending racism. They profit from racism and claiming they want to end it and if racism were to end, it would mean no more good-paying cushy jobs for them.

    White parents, never allow your White children to go through this indoctrination. Your children deserve better than to go through their lives having been brainwashed into hating their own people and believing that they deserve to be harmed by nonwhites.

That’s the baffling element about this. People who can afford that tuition don’t think they have to answer to anyone, they think that the world needs to answer to them. Therefore, this diversitarian garbage being peddled in this school has some sort of ulterior elitist motive.

        • exlib93

          Yes, I see what you’re saying, and we know (the parents should know) that it is arrogant to assume that one’s child will naturally take their place on Mount Olympus. They apparently do not conceive of the real game plan for the future, where they intend whites to be irrelevant.

    ““It’s so fricking boring,” said a fifth-grader in the Asian group. “We do the same thing every week. The conversations we have are mostly about the tensions between whites and blacks, and never about Asians or Hispanic people. It annoys me sometimes that people are like, ‘Oh my God, people are so segregated.’ But we are never mentioned. It’s just frustrating, I would say.””

    Racism is ingrained in our DNA. It can be suppressed for a brief period of time in a totalitarian state, but it cannot be stopped or socially engineered out of existence. We are all racist, with liberals being some of the most racist people in existence.

    • JohnnyMangoes

      I’d actually beg to differ. I grew up in a majority non white neighborhood in queens, NY, and I look white and never even became aware of race until I entered college.

      The people who use your logic generally have little experience around non whites so it’s easier to paint with a broad brush. I can almost guarantee that you grew up in a majority white area and was later exposed to minorities as opposed to vice versa.

        “It’s a never ending cycle that is probably going to lead to the annihilation of the planet.”

        This is why the races need to be separated. We need to carve the planet up into ethnic enclaves and then trade among the enclaves without having to live on top of one another.

            I can point you in the direction of the blacks that said those things constantly when I was in school. Would you also be interested in asking the ones that threatened to kill me, and would have, if they could’ve caught me alone?

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        I lived in the suburbs of a major city and spent most of my school years in one of the most diverse and “best” public school systems in the country. I can tell you flat out that my experiences with diversity were enough to make me a flaming racist. My first encounter with a full black in 2nd grade led to my scissors being stolen. The Hispanic kid was COVERED with ringworm and never seemed to be bothered enough to actually treat it. Of course, if it had been a white kid, they would’ve been sent home. He was allowed to stay. I was harassed, attacked, molested by black boys, the black girls threatened my periodically and always used “white __” before whatever insult they chose. I was friendly with non-whites but I knew the score. You had to be, to survive because if they thought you were “racist”, they’d kill you. They tried when I was in 11th grade because they didn’t like a comment I made in class. They didn’t succeed (obviously) but that, and all the other experiences, then the experiences I had working in a largely black telecom company, proved that it wasn’t just a fluke, that THIS IS HOW THEY ARE.

        What I just said is just the tip of the Titanic sized iceberg, by the way.

        • JohnnyMangoes

            No, they aren’t. But I don’t have to like them, associate with them, deny my experiences with them, or celebrate them. We still have freedom of association and my hatred doesn’t make me miserable, it just makes me even more determined to stay away from them and keep them away from my children.

    :“I get to be with people I can share my race with, and I don’t feel uncomfortable about it,” says one third-grader, in the black group, who tells me the only other times he’s surrounded exclusively by black people are when he’s at home or with his basketball team. “We talk about how it’s important to know what your race is. We talk about the difference between being prejudiced and being racist.”

            Correct. Give me a moment to retrieve some examples. I’ll give my posts without the opposition’s before or after posts. Here’s the first ..

            ====================

            It’s all moot anyway. I’ll repeat my bold proposal for how to avoid this kind of rioting in the future ..

            1 – Immediately pull all white cops out of all minority communities, nationwide.
            2 – Encourage minority residents to vote all whites out of decision-making public office.
            3 – Que sera, sera.

            White flight will result, as will business flight. However, the riots will stop and you can have as many Mike Brown memorials in your streets as you want, saying anything you want. The riots will stop because the evil white racist occupying cop army won’t be there to bother you anymore. Baltimore came close to this ideal, but they still had white cops on the street and at least one white police commander — and look what happened as a result.

            Of course if the riots don’t stop then even the most hardened liberals will have to wonder what is really going on.

            Some people with racial chips on their shoulders tell me that I’m a segregationist but really, I’m not. Under my scheme people would be free to live wherever they wanted that they could afford.

            Your thoughts? …

    But unless the school gives them real tools to feel comfortable having difficult conversations about race, those innocent elementary-school friendships that the parents so cherish will inevitably dissolve. Those best friends in elementary school will by middle school cease to be friends, and no one will quite understand why. “They’ll end the friendship rather than wade in and have a dialogue,” Richards says. “It’s hurtful to a lot of the white students. It’s hurtful to the students of color. I like to talk about it as a loss. But we don’t understand where that loss comes from. We just know that we used to have this friend one time, and she was so cool, she was the world. And then something happened.” What happened, Richards says, was race.

    She is absolutely correct. Race is the culprit. White students begin to observe how extremely, inherently different Black people truly are. And I am sure they get fed up with the race card excuses and “logic” their Black friends use all the time.

    • Who Me?

      The White kids grow up as they get older and the black kids stay the same, so the friendships just naturally dissolve, gradually and with no hard feelings, just a growing apart.

    Interesting how the article only briefly mentions what happens in the white “affinity group.”

    But of course, we don’t need to be told, do we?

    The white kids are taught that they’re privileged, that they have it better than everyone else, that they need to work hard to acknowledge how great they have it by deferring to everyone else. yada yada yada.

    Meanwhile, the black kids are encouraged to be open and complain about every possible perceived slight and injustice.

    And of course, Asian kids are just ignored. heh.

    This “anti-racist” indoctrination just seems to perpetuate the usual American racist antagonisms, no?

          “It was impossible for the US to lose.”

          I have subscription access to the entire archives of the New Yorker Magazine going all the way back to its founding in 1925. I read all of their WW2 coverage from the German invasion of Poland in 1939 through the Nuremberg and Tokyo war crimes trials in 1946.

          There was never any concern in the magazine’s editorial mind that the US — or England for that matter — would lose the war. Even during the Blitz and then the V1 and V2 attacks on England, the magazine’s war correspondents felt that even these horrors would not affect the outcome.

          Ditto for the war in the Pacific. The magazine saw it as costly and horrible (because it was) but the outcome was never in doubt, only the cost and time required to achieve the unconditional surrender of the Japanese.

            Hitler pretty well turned Europe into a Jew desert, and he substantially reduced the Gypsy population. Whether he could have stayed in power is an interesting question because he was incompetent.

            A group of British military planners were asked to come up with a plan to assassinate Hitler. They pushed back saying they could probably come up with one, but that the war would be shorter and milder if they left Hitler in place.

    Including Head Start, I was in school from 1977 to 1991. I remember one time in third grade (1981-82) we had to fill out these questionnaires. One question required that you look at five pictures that were on the board. The first one was of an all-White class, the last all black, the middle 50/50, and so on. You had to choose which one you’d be most comfortable in. I really wanted to choose the first one, but I chose the third. Looking back, I should have just chose the first one.

    Then in sixth grade (1984-85) we were doing book reports and we were supposed to say what we liked or didn’t like about a particular book. This one girl was doing one on Judy Blume’s “Iggy’s House,” which is about a black family that moves in, this one family doesn’t want them there and is demonized (what’s that about stereotypes, Ms. Blume?), yada yada. The girl said she didn’t like it because it “makes fun of black people.” I might add that she tended to be self-righteous about things (though we did get along in school).

    Looking back, I see what kind of nonsense that was. It wasn’t making fun of black people–actually it was promoting anti-White propaganda.

    Junior high school (1985-87)–There were two junior highs in my district. I went to the one that had more fights and stuff going on. Now I see why–the one I went to had a lot more blacks.

    How would you all raise a children to grow up with a positive white identity? Serious question… seems like a daunting task in this brave new world!

    • Red

      I wish I knew… I’m going through this now with an eight year-old.

      Some things I have done is to strictly limit TV. He can watch documentaries and sometimes he catches the local news. The local news still does a good job of airing mug shots. I never say anything, just let him watch.

      I also have him in private school, but the teachers and parents his school are fairly conservative. It’s not a libtard bastion like the school in the article, but like any educational facility there are liberals there. I wish I could homeschool but we both work. I keep a close eye on what they’re doing and give an age-appropriate alternative view whenever they try to teach him something I don’t agree with.

      I do a lot of research in to my family history. I let him read old letters and autobiographies of his ancestors. I’ll point out places where his ancestors lived and what they did for a living, wars they fought in, etc… He knows the main European ethnic groups he belongs to.

      So far I have just been planting seeds, and constantly remind him there are at least two sides to every story and to question everything. I don’t teach him to hate or try to force my opinions on him. I will, however, have Derb’s “Talk” once he is old enough.

      • Hammerheart

        Thank you for this response. I have a child on the way and I honestly fear for the child’s future. The child is a female so that compounds my initial anxiety. My father was rarely around growing up so I know for sure I won’t make that mistake myself. I like your ideas of teaching them about your ancestry and family origins and always reminding them that there is always another side to every story.

        Professionally, my wife and I decided it’s probably best for me to go back into the military despite the current battle for the military and the country’s soul. Luckily, i’ll be in a field that’s very physical yet requires a certain intellect, results driven, and political correctness (weakness) is going to get people killed so I don’t have to worry about that.

        What I do worry about though is not being around enough, and the usual things fathers would worry about, drugs, liberal brainwashing, muh-dikings, and promiscuity. I guess I just have to educate her about these values without overbearing and sparking that rebellious streak when she gets older?

        • Who Me?

          Teach her gently but as thoroughly as you can BEFORE she gets older, (under 11-12 y.o. if possible) then soft-pedal it a bit after that, hold on, and pray hard… the early training will subconsciously stick with her. (Which is why brainwashing third-graders in school is despicable.)

            Haha, thanks for the help! My wife says the teenage years will be miserable!

            I’m definitely not good around women, and have practically zero experience with really young girls. I really appreciate your advice ans will definitely be using it and keeping it in the heart. I like the idea of instilling honorable values in her when she’s young. I just pray she goes up to a proper, kind, respectful woman who marries an honorable man.

            I hope I can get her in a good conservative leaning private. Hopefully not too difficult in the NFW.

      The same way that minorities in all white environments tried to… But were constantly prevented. Look at how many Asians are in popular American media. Next to none. Growing up Asian in a white country is probably much much much worse.
