Britney Cooper is at it again.
“White people resist seeing themselves in the face of the oppressor. That mirror reflection is almost too much to bear. I get it…So then they resent the person that holds up the mirror. But let me just say as directly as I can: White people must begin to see themselves in the faces of the mostly white police officers who keep committing these atrocities against Black and Brown people.
…Black people, of every station, live everyday just one police encounter from the grave. Looking back over my encounters with police, it’s truly a wonder that I’m still in the land of the living…Am I supposed to be grateful for that? Are we supposed to be grateful each and every time the police don’t kill us? There is a way that white people in particular treat Black people, as though we should be grateful to them.”
The DailyKenn responds
A Rutgers University professor has found a pathway to minor celebrity: She attacks white people.
Brittney Cooper’s delusional musings include the contention that all black people are “one police encounter from the grave.” Furthermore, she insists that all white people constitute “the face of the oppressor.”
The crack in Cooper’s pot can be found in the fact that she prefers to live in the midst of the racist white bourgeois. While she may be one police encounter away from the grave, she is also one plane ticket away from Cameroon, Nigeria, Congo, Zimbabwe, Liberia, Burundi, Central African Republic, Eritrea, Malawi, Niger, Madagascar, Mali, Haiti, Detroit, or any other region impoverished by the absence of Western culture.
Had black people had no contact with Western or Eastern culture and had been totally isolated for the past 5,000 years — what would their standard of living be like today?
If the first thought that came to your mind was, “That’s racist!” — then congratulations. Your mind has been swept clean and your rational thinking has been displaced by cultural Marxism.
