King had a dream that his four children “will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
That’s over, courtesy of the left.
The left says it is dangerous when whites say they don’t judge by color because it “denies black’s reality.”
Sounds an awful lot like they are saying “if you are truly colorblind you kneecap the race card and neutralize black people’s meal tickets.”
Who, but a perpetual professional victim, would actively pursue more division, more racism, not less?The left is perverse and dangerous, not “whites.”
During a guest lecture at Boston University on Monday, University of Washington Professor Robin DiAngelo told the audience a “dangerous white person” sees people as individuals rather than by skin color.
DiAngelo, whose main field of work is “whiteness studies,” added that those who say they were taught to treat everyone the same deny black people of their reality, she said.
She said when she hears people talk about treating everyone the same, it tells her “this person doesn’t understand basic socialization. This person doesn’t understand culture. This person is not self-aware.”
“I want to be clear that as I stand up here with authority and a voice on this topic, I’m reinforcing whiteness and the centrality of the white view,” she said. “I’d like to be a little less white, which means a little less oppressive, oblivious, defensive, ignorant and arrogant.”
She also stated she was “going to admit to things white people never admit to” and because of “implicit bias,” the white people in the room will be more inclined to listen to her.
She discussed how racism is systemic in the media, the family, religion, education, economics, language, and criminal justice. The common definition of racism as “an individual who consciously does not like people based on race and is intentionally mean to them” allegedly protects this system of racism.
She also talked about the rampant sexism this country faces. One slide of her presentation demonstrated that the majority of politicians, directors, and police officers are male, and that it is sexist for one to suggest that maybe men “just happen to be” more inclined to go into these fields of work.
“We live in a patriarchy,” she affirmed, and even asserted her own husband is a product of the patriarchy.
She encouraged the audience to think in terms of race, and not the character of individual people, because all white people are racist to some degree, no matter what.
