A college professor has taken to the New York Times to implore “white America” to go to “war” with itself over its alleged racism. Professor George Yancy of Emory University published “Dear White America” as a “gift” for white people. His challenge: “White America, are you prepared to be at war with yourself, your white identity, your white power, your white privilege?” Yancy, a black professor, told Times readers Dec. 24 that, just as he considers himself sexist, all white people should admit to possessing latent racism. “I can see your anger. I can see that this letter is being misunderstood. This letter is not asking you to feel bad about yourself, to wallow in guilt. That is too easy. I’m asking for you to tarry, to linger, with the ways in which you perpetuate a racist society, the ways in which you are racist,” said Yancy......Read more at
My Take - The first question we should be asking is: How did this lunatic ever get a teaching job at any university? The second question we should be asking is: Is he representative of American academia. The answer is Yes to the latter and that explains how he got his job.
Let's start with definition, for without definition clarity is impossible.
First of all the words racism and prejudice are the two most misused words used in America. The word racist means hating someone simply because they belong to a different race. The word prejudice means to "pre" judge. So the question we should be asking is are whites pre-judging blacks and hate them because their black or are whites evaluating them by their actions and saying - I don't like that?
If evaluating black society by the way they act we have to conclude they've been found wanting. Violence, illegitimacy and bad attitudes permeate black society. Why would anyone think that was acceptable? Why would anyone want to associate with people who act in that manner? Black mobs rampaging through shopping malls, black kids "playing" the knockout game attacking helpless whites - especially if they're alone, old, female and outnumbered. Not liking that is hardly prejudice or racism! However refusing to recognize and defend that kind of activity is! They're telling the world blacks are incapable of living civilized lives, while condeming those who are recipients of that kind of violence as racists. Perhaps they should try and remember Antonio Santiago. You do remember him don't you?
We keep hearing how blacks are treated differently regarding employment, and the government constantly puts out figures to make that claim. However, when will the government put the whole picture on the wall? When will the government put out a study - based on race - showing how many work days are missed each year, how many days employees come to work late, leave early, cause trouble on the job, productivity, theft on the job, disciplinary write-ups, sexual harassment and violence on the job. Do the study, and after that I'm willing to let the card fall where they may.
Ok....now let's see a show of hands of how many people think the government or academia will undertake such a task.? It won't happen - and why? Because black activists and academia are racists and the government is filled with them!
