I honestly have to say that I see a lot of hostility towards whites. I see more racism these days than I have ever seen, rather sad. If it were a minority who felt uncomfortable there would be a “diversity” training for all the parties involved…. and people would be screaming for some type of action. I think it can’t be a one-sided type of argument. And to say it’s okay for one group to feel discriminated against, to feel the classroom was a hostile environment—-and say it’s okay for them to feel like that because they haven’t been through the suffering that others have gone through? That to me is a crock. That’s eye for an eye and just plain wrong.
Let’s make you white bastards squirm for all the crap that has gone on. So these boys—lets just make them as uncomfortable as possible—yeah that’s the sure fire way to bridge the vast problems between races.
“Because this is one classroom in your entire life. One speck of discomfort in an ocean that is your life of privilege. Because white supremacy dictates that your skin — and let’s not forget your maleness — will make things fundamentally easier for you than for a person (and especially a woman) of color. That feeling of being on the spot? Of being defined by the color of your skin? Of being blamed for things that other people of your color do, even if you have not done them yourself? That’s not a classroom for people of color. That’s life. There’s no walking out of class. There’s no transferring to a different professor. There is only more of the same, with the hope that dialogue, education, and activism will pull the collective ostrich head from the ground, bit by bit, until that structural racism that you don’t like talking about is eradicated.”
So, assuming they have had an easy life (based on the color of their skin) is racist itself. I think the whole article really fumed me. It’s thinking like this that makes me want to vomit. NO ONE deserves to be treated badly due to their skin color and justifying it in any way shape or form and saying that those boys should just endure because of their white privilege is ridiculous. I am tired of fueling racial divide and fires.
Making a generalization about what these young Caucasian boys have been like (white privilege blah–dee-fuckin blah keep saying it so you feel better about how you treat people?) Racism against whites is practically condoned these days and I am quite sick of it. I see so many times where the news is slanted. A black is slain by a non-black and everyone is in an uproar. A white is slain by a black and it barely makes the news AND the attacker’s race is not mentioned. A white baby is shot in the face by some blacks and there is NO HUGE outcry. There has been so much focus on race and making white people look bad that
The author talk about people pulling their ostrich head out of the ground, bit by bit. I see so many minorities with their heads in the damn fucking sand—-just as well. I am tired of seeing racist and bullshit comments on either side of the fence to condone one side behaving poorly while condemning another is the epitome of BIGOTRY. Knock that shit the hell off.
Value and love one another for being human beings—it’s simple. SCREAM about skin color—keep it up. You make it about race. The author is a fool for swallowing liberal ideology and would probably be one of the sheep that would wear a wristband to remind himself daily of his white privilege.
