University Report: A Room Full of White People Is a Microaggression

Katherine Timpf, National Review, May 12, 2015

According to a new report released by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, just “walking into or sitting in” a classroom full of white people is a microaggression in itself.

“Students of color reported feeling uncomfortable and unwelcomed just walking into or sitting in the classroom, especially if they were the only person of color, or one of a few,” stated the report, which designated the experience a microaggression.

“People do not necessarily say I do not belong, but I feel as if I do not when I am in a classroom and I am the one non-White person,” said one student, identified as a Latina female, who is quoted in the report.

The report, titled “Racial Microaggressions,” was based on an online survey of more than 4,800 students of color during the 2011–12 academic year, and it found more than 800 examples of such microaggressions on campus. Now, that may seem like a lot–but it’s important to recognize that this high number could signify the prevalence of a tendency to assume that almost anything is racist rather than the prevalence of racism itself.

Despite the fact that so many of these “microaggressions” are designated as such based on questionable assumptions, the study still recommends that the school take drastic measures to stop them: requiring that all students complete a “General Education requirement about race, White privilege, and inequality in the United States” as well as “both a non-Western culture and a US people of color cultural course”; fundamentally altering the curriculum to ensure that a third of all college 101 classes “include diversity and inclusion”; providing workshops, trainings, campaigns, and brochures “to help students identify when racial microaggressions are occurring”; creating a “slogan or language”–such as the phrase “Racism Alert”–to use when they identify one; and developing a “mechanism for students to report perceived racial microaggressions.”

    I was just skimming through the report.

    A large percentage of minority students feel uncomfortable “in a classroom or lab.”

    Was that supposed to be as amusing as it is?

    It’s a “microinsult” to be surprised that an asian student isn’t doing well in math. Well, it’s generally rude to show surprise at someone’s failures, but it’s not unreasonable to be privately surprised about an asian doing poorly in math. In my experience, if an asian tells you they’re not doing well in a math class, that means they have a high B.

      You should be more sympathetic to their plight. They are now being forced to go a whole hour without saying “Sheet, man, muhfah, Nomesane?” This onerous burden can cause much stress when one finds oneself among those who have a larger vocabulary.

    • Charles Martel

      Museums also. Whites are unique in that they will pursue knowledge and beauty for their own sakes.

      • Michael Robert Ryan

        I don’t think so. The Chinese (and probably Japanese) had some pretty serious philosophers, people on par with Plato and Aristotle. I’ve actually read both Chinese and Western philosophers and find the Chinese philosophers to be much more readable. I find western philosophy to be very dry. I’ve read that Mesoamericans also had a fairly advanced philosophical tradition (when they weren’t butchering human captives anyway) though I don’t know how true that is and how much of it is multiculti, we-are-all the-same propaganda.

        • antiquesunlight

          Which Chinese philosophers are on par with Plato and Aristotle?

          • Michael Robert Ryan

            Which Chinese philosophers are on par with Plato and Aristotle?

            Confucius, Mencius, Laozi, Zhuang Zhou, Mozi

            .Did mesoamericans even have written language?

            They had hieroglyphic writing. Unfortunately, most of their codices were burned by a Catholic priest named Diego de Landa, so there is much we will never know about them.

          • Caesar Avgvstvs

            None of those Chinese “philosophers” are on par with Plato and Aristotle, not even close. Aristotle, for example, contributed to almost every field of human endeavor and strongly influenced Greek, Byzantine, Medieval Islamic and Christian theologians and philosophers.

          • Michael Robert Ryan

            Aristotle, for example, contributed to almost every field of human endeavor

            And he was wrong about almost everything. Ask Sir Issac Newton.

            and strongly influenced Greek, Byzantine, Medieval Islamic and Christian theologians and philosophers.

            Confucius and Laozi’s influence in East Asia was probably no less extensive than Aristotle’s was in the West.

          • Caesar Avgvstvs

            Aristotle influenced theologians, philosophers and scientists in almost every field of human endeavor. The same cannot be said for the Chinese.

          • Rhialto

            I did ask Sir Issac, and he told me that he was also wrong in almost everything. Wrong, in so far as more accurate laws were formulated, when new experiments provided new data of which Newton was ignorant.

          • antiquesunlight

            “Confucius, Mencius, Laozi, Zhuang Zhou, Mozi”

            There is nothing in any of those guys, at least based on what I’ve read of them, that comes close to what Plato or Aristotle accomplished.

            The clarity of thought and emphasis on reasoned argument that Socrates/Plato brought to the world is unparalleled by any of his contemporaries. Plato more or less invented The Big Questions. The Theaetetus was the first serious consideration of the nature of truth and is to this day perhaps the pinnacle of philosophical literature on that subject. Plato invented rigorous political and and artistic argumentation.

            Aristotle more or less invented methodical science and his thought on much of science was the standard in the West for about a thousand years. Aristotle was the first to systematically study the nature of logic, and he invented the syllogism.

            That’s a short list of accomplishments. Confusedus cannot come close.

            I don’t have time right now to look up Mesoamerican writing, but I’m pretty sure that their writing, like everything else they did, was very far behind the rest of the world.

    • DCRealist

      Remember that the entire concept of a “micro-aggression” was concocted by a black Harvard education and psychiatry professor who was interested in proving that high blood pressure among the poor was the result of pent up anger. Seriously.

      And yet his idiotic idea is still with us, influencing real people’s lives. How much more proof is needed that higher education is primarily an instrument of progressive social indoctrination (i.e. instruction in left-wing religion rituals, incantations and beliefs)?

      EDIT: Here’s a quote from this genius:

      “Every child in America who enters school at the age of five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with an allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government that we have. Patriotism, nationalism, and sovereignty, all that proves that children are sick because a truly well individual is one who has rejected all of those things, and is truly the international child of the future.”

      I read where Michelle Obama was recently complaining about how Blacks felt uncomfortable in art museums. Apparently they just have an aversion to institutions of higher learning.

      • Rurik

        Blacks in a museum makes everybody feel uncomfortable.

        • antiquesunlight

          I regularly haunt the High Museum here and even with their pretty regular pandering to blacks with civil rights exhibits, few come.

          • antiquesunlight

            A large percentage of the black patrons that I do see up there are flaming gay men.

            Virtually all of the staff is black, including security. Maybe I’m just paranoid, but I can almost feel their resentment as I (or other white people) walk by.

    • Dr. Rieux

      Seriously, many blacks consider having their speech corrected a micro-aggression.

      (Someone tell me again how dindus are just like whites and East Asians. I need a good laugh.)

  • Does this mean the push for deseg is over?

    • Don’t we wish. No, sir, it doesn’t work that way. We must integrate with them regardless, but must bow and get on our knees even more so that they feel more comfortable. Yeah, blacks not wanting to be around Whites. Like that would ever happen.

    • Dr. Rieux

      Ship ’em all back to Africa, where they’ll be free from microaggressions.

      • Oil Can Harry

        Yes, because they’ll all die as a result of REAL (not micro) aggressions.

  • TomIron361

    Just the latest idiocy coming out of the hallowed halls of higher education.

  • Truthseeker

    “People do not necessarily say I do not belong, but I feel as if I do not when I am in a classroom and I am the one non-White person.”

    So you don’t feel comfortable and that’s the fault of White students who are just minding their own business and going to class? What do you want? Are they supposed to go out of their way to welcome you? This may come as a surprise, but the lives of White people do not revolve around non-Whites.

    If you don’t feel comfortable in a classroom full of White people, why would you choose to go to a school or enter a program where most of the students are White? That’d be like me enrolling in a Black Studies program and then complaining that I don’t feel comfortable as the only White person in a room full of Blacks. This competition to see who can be the biggest victim is pathetic, and beneath the dignity of any self-respecting person.

    • Exactly. It is not enough that we do not attack them, discriminate against them, or even are in any way rude to them. Now just minding our own business is not enough; they still feel “uncomfortable” and that is OUR fault. Whites really need to mind our own business and say to Hell with any one not of our race.

      Segregation is always going to be a thing. Take it from a person who has lived in NYC all his life.

      • Dr. Rieux

        Self-segregation, I.e. freedom of association, is a very good thing. To force people to associate with people they don’t like is unnatural and destructive.

  • B.A_2014

    May I recommend segregation.

    • De Doc

      And they seem to be doing that on their own now with White free safe spaces on college campuses. It’s funny how we have to go through these tough lessons periodically.

    I’m gonna do them one better. I’m gonna change my User Id to Nano-aggression.

    Wait. Or better yet. I’m gonna do them two better. I’ll change it to Pico-aggression.

    I hope nobody’s widdle feewings will be ‘hurt’ by this act of ‘racism,’ brought on by my White Privilege, no doubt.

    • You’ll have to knock it down to yoctoaggression.

      Do it three better and change it to femto-aggression But seriously, this could be a new step in modern pedagogy: The dindu method for teaching the metric system.

      How many micro-aggressions are in a milli-aggression?

    “Report recommends courses on “white privilege” to remedy the problem.”

    In reality, those who made this stupid nonsensical report feel much better and safer in rooms that are full of White people. The diversity-loving White libtards would never want to be in rooms full of nonwhites, but they still push for this diversity because anti-White race treason sells.

    “Students of color reported feeling uncomfortable and unwelcomed just walking into or sitting in the classroom, especially if they were the only person of color, or one of a few,” stated the report, which designated the experience a microaggression.”

    Imagine how the White students feel being in rooms full of nonwhites who see them as enemies because the schools they go to push for this anti-White diversity. You think those White students feel any safer than those “students of color” in rooms full of Whites?

    “People do not necessarily say I do not belong, but I feel as if I do not when I am in a classroom and I am the one non-White person,” said one student, identified as a Latina female, who is quoted in the report.”

    Again, this is how White students feel being in places full of nonwhites where anti-White diversity is the sole priority. And again, this is why diversity enforcement must stop. Nobody likes diversity. Nobody wants diversity.

    • John Smith

      My alma mater is going to hell.

      • Dr. Rieux

        Bottom line: When they’re not being stupid, too many NAMs are outright pathetic.

        If they want to know why they don’t get respect, (which is earned), they need to stop whining and take a long, hard look in the mirror.

    • Big difference. When Whites are in the minority, we don’t care about “micro aggressions” we are worried about actual physical threats. “Micro aggression” is just so much bull. It is another way of saying, “You made me uncomfortable. I feel that way and it is your fault even though I can’t think of anything you did wrong.”

      • guest

        That and the fact that these self-proclaimed experts who write this trash only talk about the points of view from nonwhites. They only ask nonwhites how they feel being surrounded by all Whites but they never bother to ask White people how they feel when they’re surrounded by all nonwhites. To them, it’s always the feelings of nonwhites that matter and they always make it seem as if it’s only the responsibility of White people to help end racism. It’s always “What White people should do to end racism” and never “What all people should do to end racism”.

    Forget the micro aggressions, you semantic lie peddlers and focus on the very real, racist black aggression against whites as manifested in the crime stats, you myopic cultural marxist cretins. It’s more than time that whites ignore this nonsensical narrative and tell these absurd popinjays where to get off.

  • guest

    I like the “racism alert” idea, and I have an enhancement idea for it. It should be not just a phrase students can say when the microaggression rears its evil head, but it should be an actual alert button the student can press, which will sound an alert. The alert might be a voice, like the way carbon monoxide detectors will stat saying, “warning, carbon monoxide detected”. It might also automatically summon the “diversity and inclusion rapid response team (DIRRT).

    What do you think?

  • Alex Williamson

    When I say I don’t feel comfortable in a room full of black people people call me a racist. Now I will be able to tell them that I am actually the victim of a microaggression. I would like to offer my thanks to the writers of this report for their sterling work.

    • Weisheit77

      I don’t have a degree in victimology, but I’m pretty that is not how it works. You’re still a racist.

  • American Tax Payer

    I’m so confused!

    “people of color”… “white” is a color too so that means that since “white” is not included in “people of color”, then white people are invisible so there can be no such thing as a “microaggression”.

    The illogical “thinking” by these “people of color” never ceases to amaze me. We’re not a “color” when “color” is good but we’re a “color” when “color” is bad. Unfortunately, we’re never gonna see anyone take them to task over their extremely flawed “logic”.

    By the way, “microaggression” is not even an actual word.

    • DonReynolds

      Your confusion is because you are thinking like a man.
      Men do not agonize over every slight discomfort some whiner utters under their breath…..particularly if there is no remedy. No, there is nothing that will make them happy…..so don’t worry about it. They have been taught if they complain, they will get extra attention, and maybe some special gifts. We need to disabuse them of that idea.

      • American Tax Payer

        It’s not my gender, it’s my experience. Yes, I’m a woman but I’ve seen enough to tell the difference between genuinely trying and lying.

        no remedy – Now that’s a topic for discussion. Of all the trillions wasted on Foreign Aide, what have we to show for it?

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          More useless parasites that are thanking us by invading our countries and whining about “microaggressions”!

        • DonReynolds

          We all know an important economic fact:
          When something is subsidized (rewarded), we will get more of it….
          and when it is taxed (penalized), we will get less of it.
          You are right, of course. Foreign aid had not bought us any friends and we could have used that money better here at home.

          • American Tax Payer

            Didn’t Reagan say something like that? I’m no fan of Reagan but if memory serves:

            “Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

            I change my mind about Reagan. When I went to look for that quote, I found a bunch more from him that I really like. Too bad he turned amnesty and global.

            I wouldn’t mind Aide if we had something positive to show for it. I’m not a heartless person, I just expects results and if those results are not good, change is in order. Keep changing until you find a good result. They (congress) refuse to change because they’re in cahoots with Operation Destroy America.

          • DonReynolds

            Jack Kemp made that point well before he went crazy with compassionate conservatism.
            Congress cooked up the Amnesty of 1986 as a big compromise deal. One million illegal aliens would get Amnesty (which turned into four million by the time chain immigration kicked in). In return, the problem would be solved forever with a long list of enforcement measures…..all of which were subsequently erased either by Congress or by presidents who refused to enforce the law. Yes, we were betrayed. So no more deals.
            I have no problem with aid for people. I have a big problem with fraud and robbery of the public treasury. The end result will be the death of the goose that lays the golden eggs. The sooner the more merciful.

        • george00

          “Of all the trillions wasted on Foreign Aide, what have we to show for it?” A nonwhite population explosion that wants to sneak into White countries. Thanks a lot stupid liberals.

            Non-whites are merely the tool and they’re too stupid to see it. They’re being used to destroy us and our civilization ’cause we’re the only ones who can stop it.

            Actually, I’m not so sure non-whites would even care if you laid it all out for ’em ’cause to them, this is wealth compared to what they had. It’s temporary “wealth” for them but they wouldn’t believe that neither.

  • Luca D.

    ‘…just “walking into or sitting in” a classroom full of white people is a microaggression in itself.’

    Then turn around and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    Better yet, push for a segregated campus. It will sound ‘progressive’ and acceptable coming from the mouth of a minority.

    • DonReynolds

      Plenty of segregated campuses for blacks. Desegregation never affected historically black colleges. I have taught at two of them and I can report…..they are still completely segregated. Desegregation only applied to white colleges.

  • David Ashton

    Same pattern in the USA as in other English-speaking white countries, with “micro-aggression” added to the Newspeak glossary. This one can and probably will be extended to all social occasions where whiteskins, for the time being, are in a majority or all too evident; and don’t forget Mexican-Spanish as the Second Language of the USA.

          Like the Western press howled about apartheid in Zim and SA – threatening military action in Zim if the White-created country weren’t handed over to murderous, communist blacks.

          We’re supposed to care when genocide happens in Darfur, Nepal, Tibet and other non-White countries but cheer it on when it happens in White homelands.

        Oh that kills me every time. The babies, the children…my heart just rips into pieces when I think about it (and I am as mean and cold-hearted as a snake). How do we bring them here? Who cares if they’re illegal, we need to get them to safety! Someone told me about the country of Georgia, and how they were trying to get the white South Africans to come and farm their land…are the Afrikaners aware of this?

        Also, these pictures (especially the babies and children) should be shoved into the stupid, simpering, smugly self-righteous white traitors’ faces every single time they cry about racism. Show me ONE picture comparable to anything like this that has been done to blacks in the US in the past 50 years by whites…JUST ONE! But they can’t. I want to wrap my hands in the pictures of those babies and just start punching! God rest those white African’s souls. I have to believe in God, I have to believe they are with Him or I would go to pieces. How can we keep letting this happen??

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    To give you an idea of where some of these people are coming from, I recently listened to a talk show in which a woman chastised white people for stereotyping blacks. She said instead of avoiding contact with blacks you don’t know you should engage them in conversation. She didn’t believe walking across the street to avoid contact with blacks is a healthy response. As whites it’s our obligation to initiate conversations about race, no matter the environment. I wish her all the luck in the world if she tries this idea in parts of Baltimore, or Philly, or………… But, please, don’t include me in this plan. At my age I probably wouldn’t heal from the injuries.

    • John Smith

      I did that all the time in Birmingham.

    • Yeah, initiate conversations? Tell me, didn’t they have a list of things that annoy black people about Whites? One of them was, if I can recall, that White people “get too friendly.” So, in other words, there is nothing we can do to please blacks. As for me, black people, “you are just not worth it.”

      • Dr. Rieux

        We expect our five year old children to recognize that the world doesn’t revolve around them. Surely we can demand the same from black adults.

    just walking into or sitting in a classroom full of white people is a microaggression in itself.

    Hey wait – according to lefty universities like University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, this is completely impossible because race doesn’t exist – Race is a Social Construct!

    Only a racist hater claims there are are any differences between the races.

    Ask the university sociology or anthropology depts., they’ll tell you.

    It’s in all the textbooks too.

    Those are some misguided social constructs in need of censure and severe punishment, noticing race as they do.

      Of course, they cannot make up their collectivist minds……either there are no separate races (in which case there cannot be any racism)…..or the separate races actually exist (and one is more deserving than another).

        • I am a racist, and when I did WW-2 battle re-enactment, I went as Waffen SS. I still have that uniform, and wear it to Halloween parties after a correct haircut. I even have a set of period glasses to go with it. My hands and the old scars on my forehead and across my nose cause people to find it all a bit “disturbing”.

          That said, I regard nazi-ism as fundamentally un-American, so that word doesn’t stick to me. As an American, I believe everyone should have the right to suck in their own way, provided we have the right to cut off their welfare immediately and then deport them to Africa and Mexico.

  • Jason Lewis

    I’ve noticed the people most uncomfortable around large groups of whites are liberal whites. At least they’re the most likely to point out how “non-diverse” the group is and how it needs to change.

    • They POINT THAT OUT, but they are NOT uncomfortable. How do I know? Because liberal Whites are always the very Whites who are around other Whites most of the time.

      • DonReynolds

        Jason may be right …..also. Liberal whites only hang around with other Liberal whites and they get very, very anxious when someone who is not a Liberal shows up in their space. I know this, since I have “shown up” lots of times.

      • Jason Lewis

        Good point. I do notice the most liberal areas of the country are places like Vermont. (98% non diverse)

  • HwitazManwaz

    Micro-aggressed colored people, you are feeble minded, weak in character, childlike cowards. You seem to be completely oblivious to the truth that your blather reinforces the belief of your inferiority. To you, no thank you. Leave. We SHALL be better off without you.

  • John Smith

    Funny, but I’m uncomfortable when I’m one of the few whites present and surrounded by minorities, probably because I expect to be robbed and murdered, something that seldom happens to minorities in a room full of whites.

    • Sorry, John. You made too much sense. That disqualifies you from a teaching position at any major college or university.

  • When I took Physics 110-112 instead of Physics 101 to meet the physical science requirement, I also felt uncomfortable in the classroom and the lab…because it was so damn difficult. The same thing is going on here: they are petrified because deep down they know…they know and they hate us for it.

    Incredible.
    Blacks are one out of eight people in this country and in most counties it is much more so.
    If they do not feel comfortable being a decided minority there are several solutions……
    1) avoid entering any rooms where most people already in them are not black, 2) live and work only in predominately black areas (mostly the inner cities), 3) relocate to a country where the vast majority of persons are just as black as yourself.
    Maybe someone else can think of #4.

    Such a room counts as macroaggression

  • evilsandmich

    “microaggressions” are designated as such based on questionable assumptions

    That’s putting it mildly.

  • So, walking in to a classroom full of White people is a “micro aggression”? Well, walking into a subway car that is mostly full of black people is likely going to lead to “macro aggressions.” Seriously, why is it our fault and responsibility if the poor “persons of color” feel “uncomfortable” around us? Isn’t that THEIR problem? We must stop this attitude of feeling more sensitive to others than they are to us. I feel “uncomfortable” any time I am around blacks. Do they care? Do they search their consciences as to how they can make me feel better? Do they even HAVE consciences?

  • DonReynolds

    Perhaps it would help a lot if the uncomfortable black students did not see the white students in the classroom. Maybe if all the white students would conceal themselves under a sheet and put the pillowcase over their head, that would calm everyone. Just remember to cut two holes in the pillowcase, so you can see the board.

    • Dr. Rieux

      Would the black students feel more welcome if the white students dyed the sheets and pillow cases coal black first?

      • DonReynolds

        Oh no…..Things like that must be earned.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      All those pillowcases would make it hard to see. Perhaps more lighting, say, in the form of burning lower-case “T”s would help? Or maybe just torches?

      • DonReynolds

        I can see that you are safety-minded and concerned about the eye sight of ALL students.
        Yes, I think that would be a great idea. After all, since ALL of the white students are properly covered and the black students cannot actually see them, more lighting would enable everyone to see the blackboard better and take copious notes.

  • Deacon Blue

    This is what it’s all coming to folks: White people will NOT be allowed to associate with each other in the near future. Now white people merely existing in a room among themselves is evil.

    General Education requirements? OH GAWD, NO! What a huge waste of time and money!

    My school already had “US Diversity” and “Beyond the North Atlantic” requirements. They were pointless and I gave no craps about the classes; they were one of may reasons that made me hate college for two years. Hating college, then, held me back with my studies.

    I think that in many of these anti-white gen-eds, the teachers are non-white, and I do not trust them to grade fairly. One of my classes was famous for helping football players out, and there is no way those guys completed the requirements of that course. The teacher was black, and seemed black nationalist, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she gave white students worse grades than they deserved, while boosting grades of her precious black students (football and basketball players).

  • TL2014

    If being among white people is so horrible, why don’t they just get the hell out of here? There are plenty of nonwhite countries.

    What a relentless, ultimately genocidal campaign against whites. When will it stop? When will the sane part of this country secede and form our own cultural institutions?

    • Silly Frog

      It won’t stop until we stop it. There are many traitors and marauders within our nation. They have fashioned welfare into a anti-white carpet bomb using foreign squatters. Like they say, it will get worse before it gets better. I look forward to the better.

      • Gillian C.

        I had a read through of your two previous AM disqus accounts last night, very interesting.
        One thing struck me was there wasn’t much if any mention of WN, I guess it’s since then that you have gone in that direction.

        • For white nationalism to succeed, for The Reich to rise again, for us whites to simply stop the tide of non-white immigration and begin to take back our own destiny from the Jew will require a tidal wave of public support to our side. We must have massive amounts of previously racially unaware, un Jew-aware, people converted to our way of thinking. I stand as example that such a transformation is possible, that a brainwashed goyim can be saved for the betterment of whites, that all the unnatural brainwashing that gets done to white people in today’s world can be penetrated and destroyed by the diligent application of reason to the lies and stories of the day.

          My earlier accounts invariably got junked due to Jew-naming at primarily WND, or asking questions about Jews that they didn’t like. I didn’t know about white nationalism then and would not have viewed it positively if I had. I went from being not Jew-aware, to being sorta Jew-aware, that the usurper serving as POTUS was really their golem, not the Muslim’s, that much I knew when I left WND but I still had more to learn, and still always will. Even after I began to accept that they actually run our governments, as weighed by their ability to determine where our armies wage war, I still clung to the Holocaust™ fiction as truth because that’s what I had been conditioned to do, to reject any “revisionism” as vile. It took time for that to reverse. A slow realization that, hey, since the Jews lied about all this other stuff and are still lying about stuff to us today maybe they lied about that too…

          That’s why I leave my accounts open. I suspect it’s probably only razorrare and you who bothered to look though. I wish more people would, especially more fence-sitters just beginning to contemplate taking part in pro-white advocacy and trying to figure out what that means.

          • Gillian C.

            I think younger people are beginning to question things more as they realize just how unfair everything has become and how the world seems to bend over backwards to accommodate everything the Jews want and demand from the rest of the world.
            For such a tiny percentage or the dominant minority of people to hold so much power and sway over the majority is making less and less sense to right minded people. The fact that they own, run and control the msm politics banking the entertainment industry and education at university level is a big giveaway of their power. It’s vital that the holohoax is exposed for the lie that it is.
            Another thing that annoys me greatly is the fact that one day the King and Queen of my country will be full blown Jews. Of course the msm will completely ignore their ethnicity.
            Re your final para, maybe more people will look through your previous accounts now that they’ve been mentioned. Also the poster you mention I suspect spends most of his time reading through the accounts of others trying to catch them out. I asked him a question a couple of days ago and he used one of his alt accounts to reply to me, but of course didn’t answer my question. I shan’t bother him again. It was about that exchange you had with Jared Taylor 2 or 3 months ago.

          • Oh, yeah, I saw that exchange but it was on Alt-Right and I am unable to upvote or reply on Alt-Right, on account of me calling them out on their institutional philosemitism as habitually demonstrated and as finally embodied by their decision to publish an article by Engleman, known hasbara.

            I screenshotted that whole exchange before Taylor deleted his replies, which I’ve previously posted. I don’t have it handy at the moment, but I did post it within the last month or two.

          • Gillian C.

            You still got that gun your dad gave you when you were 11 years old? 🙂

          • That would be telling 😉 Learning to shoot a shotgun was weird as a right-handed yet left-eyed dominant person.

            Here’s the link to that Taylor convo, which after some doubts I did believe was Taylor:
            imgur com/a/67P0L

          • Gillian C.

            Right-handed yet left-eyed dominant – yeah I can see how that might be a little tricky.
            I remember that exchange very well, it was great. People should take a look at it. I think too that he was who he said he was.

          • Yeah it was tricky. If I recall right, which is dubious after this much time, I probably spent a couple hours not hitting anything, but missing somewhat consistently with regard to vector, and either my dad or the instructor at the range or my scoutmaster presumably stepped in and suggested I hold the gun left-handed, which was very awkward for me as a righty to do, yet I was amazed at how I could now hit everything dead center. These were .22 LR cartidges, not a shotgun. I may actually have been ten at that time, come to think of it. I believe that unbeknownst to me my dad took me to get specced out and sussed out at the range as a qualifier for the gift of the shotty later at 11. Longguns I shoulder to my left shoulder and shoot but handguns I hold right-handed as I instinctively want to and just turn my head to the right a wee bit and try not to roll my shoulder to line up my arm with my eye but rather turn my head to line up my left eye with my right arm.

          • Gillian C.

            I’ve never held a gun in my entire life. Maybe one day I’ll get the chance.
            My son’s got a gun, licensed and legally held. He’s anticipating trouble one day. I’ve got relatives that live in the country that have always had guns too.
            This right hand left hand thing is a bit odd at times. I’m right-handed but do several things left-handed, like dealing playing cards for example, I don’t know quite why this is, but it’s handy. I am left-eyed dominant too, though I didn’t know it until I had to get tested for reading glasses.
            I guess you keep up with your shooting skills.

    the study still recommends that the school take drastic measures to stop them: requiring that all students complete a “General Education requirement about race, White privilege, and inequality in the United States” as well as “both a non-Western culture and a US people of color cultural course”; fundamentally altering the curriculum to ensure that a third of all college 101 classes “include diversity and inclusion”; providing workshops, trainings, campaigns, and brochures “to help students identify when racial microaggressions are occurring”; creating a “slogan or language”–such as the phrase “Racism Alert”–to use when they identify one; and developing a “mechanism for students to report perceived racial microaggressions.”

    They forgot the final step in the recommended program, “being shocked that White enrollment is dropping at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.”

      Good heaven, “educators” (sic) don’t try to even hide it anymore. They’re not educators; they’re commissars and gauleiters.

      This is a major reason I vote against every school levy and have no problem cutting the budget for higher education. It’s not simply that today’s educators don’t teach, more often than not they mis-teach, mis-inform and indoctrinate. Better for a person to know he knows nothing than for him to be only indoctrinated and yet think he knows something. Plus with on-line learning, (Khan Academy, YouTube, etc and all for free), why should Johnny or Susie be forced to hear the Marxist prattle of some half- wit in Lit. class?

  • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

    You want to talk about microaggressions? How about my experience today, with my family at the mall. We were walking through the food court and a table of about 6-7 black male thugs were sitting there. I corralled my children and moved them far away as we kept walking…and the thug scum made baa-ing noises at my husband’s hat (it’s a Appalachian university hat). I guess because they think white rural people are sheep-lovers? I told my husband I’d take the sheep any day, and twice on Saturday, before I’d ever touch one of those filthy beasts. We weren’t scared as we’re always heavily “prepared” for situations, but it was infuriating. How DARE they? When he told me I was livid, furious and spitting with rage. I guess that wouldn’t count as a microaggression because I’m white, or the fact that if they had caught us out in the parking lot, they’d probably have tried to attack us. Stupid me, thinking we could go out in public and have a nice time. No wonder we rarely leave the house.

    So, all that to say, these whining minorities CAN GO TO COLLEGE. They aren’t being threatened, intimidated, insulted, or harassed. They’re coddled beyond belief, they never have to worry about their, or their small children’s safety. This country literally makes me sick. In a room full of white people, they are perfectly safe. Maybe we should send them into a room full of those black vermin and see what happens?

    • The good news is that people like us (usually) get to go home. Afterward, we’re still white, or white enough to pass muster over iron sights at 200 yards, and we’re the ones who do some thinking later on. That level of “normal” hostility should let you know you’d need to be able to dump a magazine into someone at 50 feet.

      Get a CCW license and spend some time at the range.

      If I were you, I would also call the mall and complain that the “yoofs” were accosting families with children, and that you no longer feel safe there. How much money do you spend there? How much money do the “yoofs”. Any indoor mall is a business, and the managers of indoor malls know exactly that. When “yoofs” drive away genuine customers, that mall is circling the drain.

      Some businesses here have a “no guns” sign, and I avoid those, always telephoning to explain that while I can not possess firearms anymore, they do not need my business if I should not be allowed to protect myself while in their establishments.
