  • "Should White Boys Still Be Allowed to Talk?"

    From the Dickinsonian, an actual College paper....


    White boys spout the narrative of dominant ideologies and pretend they’re hot takes instead of the same misleading garbage shoved down our throats by American institutions from birth.

    I am so g****mned tired of listening to white boys. I cannot describe to you how frustrating it is to be forced to listen to a white boy explain his take on the Black experience in the Obama-era. Hey Brian, I’m an actual Black woman alive right now with a brain. In what world would your understanding of my life carry more weight than my understanding?

    The many comments under the article are the real fun;


    https://thedickinsonian.com/opinion/...lowed-to-talk/



    Oh, and for the "that's just one isolated case so it can't mean anything WAAAAAAHHHH!!!" crowd :


    Student Life, Washington University -
    It’s OK that conservatives don’t feel welcome
    {That is the title of the article!}


    Conservative ideas do not deserve equal consideration to that afforded liberal and left ideas, because conservative ideas are not equal to liberal and left ideas. There is no legitimate argument for supporting Donald Trump and his allies, at least not one that holds up in any academic community worth its salt. Advocating nativism, sexism, government by oligarchic graft and anything else the president represents is not productive in a space meant to contribute ideas to the world.
    When it comes to the Left, the Rubicon was crossed long ago. These are full-fledged fanatics who know no low too low.... be it either their IQs or their morals.

    We’ve already reached tacit agreement on this. We’re an overwhelmingly left-leaning student body—73 percent of respondents to the Student Life survey mentioned in the original WU: In Focus piece identified as “very” or “somewhat liberal,” compared with only 8 percent who reported being any degree of “conservative.” Instead of propping up fringe ideas out of some sense of “bipartisan” openness, we should embrace the fact that so many of our students are liberal. Instead of wasting our time and mental energy on some right-wing argument no one really believes, we should spend time having meaningful conversations. How can we guarantee everyone health coverage? What’s the best way to redistribute wealth? How can we mitigate climate change, a thing we all agree is a problem?

    Stay away from crowds* , they might be made up of monstrous freaks like the ones that wrote those words.


    And, as usual, its not just the hate that drives all this, it is the Profit Motive;

    The last two quotes you posted have nothing to do with your thread title, nor does it enforce your claim that it wasn't isolated so I'll just focus on the first quote.

    I cannot put into words how pissed off blacks are with the constant attacks of late. Specifically having people argue to you that blacks have issues, are a problem, should be avoided, are less evolved, etc and then claim it's not racist if it's true. Which is probably the most racist statement someone could make. In short, people are simply fed up.

    Obviously fighting racism with more racism isn't the moral thing to do, if you're going to take that approach then you can no longer complain about white racism. Else, you're just being hypocritical. But then what is the solution? Talking doesn't work. Protesting doesn't work. Minding your own business and being a good citizen doesn't work. So what do you do? I personally don't know what the answer is, but it's my opinion that it's just a matter of time till things come to a violent conclusion. We're not on a good path right now.

      ....
      Wrong, doofy one.
      Unlike you, my entire mind body and soul is not 100% consumed by this racial crappola.

      and unless you can quote me chapter and verse and statute number about how my title of the thread I started has to match your expectations then get with the idea that this is about Colleges being over-run with Psychopaths.
      ALL of those indicate Intellectual Thuggery, Politically motivated and so brutal and evil that violence will inevitably be caused by it.

      I thought it would be obvious.
      I look at that article and I think that another scam-artist with a rotten idea has been added to the many that controll higher Ed in this country.
      I thought it would be self -evident that she is wrong and stupid and rotten and evil.

      ..... and yet here YOU come, ready to back her up any way you can.
      That's just disgusting.

        That's fine. But your thread title is about race so that's what I was speaking to.

        and unless you can quote me chapter and verse and statute number about how my title of the thread I started has to match your expectation
        Well typically that's how forums work. Most normal people won't title a thread about baseball then expect everyone to talk about football instead.

        I didn't back her up. I said it was morally wrong and hypocritical.

          The comments are right. It's the same racist attitude that existed a hundred years ago in the "Progressive Era." We might as well call the Obama years, "The Second Progressive Era." It's the same racism, just reversed to black-on-white. I wouldn't be surprised if some affirmative action college enrollee suggested genocide.
          It's a shame because most people don't care about race. White, black, whatever, we all have the same cultural experience. But when you're hiding behind an academic thesis, you're allowed to write stuff that would do Hitler proud.

                I don't wish for white genocide. But it does seem the white and black racists are headed towards a race war. Tactikill is challenging all the Stormfronters to duke it out.

                  I've almost reached that point myself. Much of humanity is just dumb as rocks and evil enough to shame the devil. About the only thing that keeps me from giving the whole world the finger is that if the current crop of malcontents get their way, there's still plenty of good people they'll drag down with them. I'd be quite happy to let the ignorant and hateful reap the consequences of what they're pushing this country toward if it was just them that would suffer the consequences but I still have people I care about who will suffer too if they do. Keeps me trying even if it feels futile at times.
                  A new life awaits you in the off world colonies; the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!

                    Referring in part to the original post vis-a-vis conservatives being made to feel unwelcome in academia...
                    The far left-leaning attitudes are reaching down to the high school level as well. Recent teacher hires especially in the humanities subjects, are products of these liberal arts universities that are spawning hatred for the conservative community. As a result more and more high schoolers are being indoctrinated at an increasingly earlier age to nothing but left wing ideology. The result being that most college-bound students are already liberal minded to the point of believing that their college tuition debt will be wiped out by law in the future. No joke folks.

                      What world are you from? You talk about attacks on black ideals without mentioning the never-ending bombardment of whites by those same blacks. No one is innocent here, but whites don't have the same open hatreds displayed constantly on the media and everywhere else that blacks do. Blacks act the same way Islamic terrorists do: everything others say or do is offensive to them, while everything they say or do is "justified". No one else in the world is allowed to comment on their behavior. There is nothing more biased and just plain idiotic than a black athlete making $20 million a year claiming that "whitey is oppressing him".

                      You're just now are starting to realize that we're headed for a civil war? The rest of us here have been talking about that probability for a long time now. Instead of attacking us constantly with your snide personal insults, and barraging us endlessly with your terminal TDS, maybe you should begin to pay attention to what is being said for a change.

                          Everything you said is a generalization and can go both ways. People constantly bring up black issues, but the second anyone says anything about an individual or group of white racist you're instantly vilified and called racist. No one is allowed to talk about whites while you cast judgement on everyone else.

                          Yes I absolutely have said that we are headed for civil war. I said before the election that Trump = Civil War and Hillary = WW3. I saw this coming and was blasted by all the Trump fans for pointing that out. Because of your extreme sensitivity and bias you only see what you want to see. For instance I recently posted a thread that absolutely had nothing to do with Trump, yet you came in and cried TDS.

                            When you have a high level FBI official say he can almost smell the Trump voters as he drives past Wal-Mart it puts the racial issue in perspective. The real divide in American culture is class not race.

                            Even if the non institutional racism is primarily exemplified by Wal-Mart shopping good old boys and gals the lower classes have always been easy to divide. If you are living paycheck to paycheck everything and everyone becomes a threat. It's easy to be "liberal" if you live in a gated community, the suburbs, or a university campus. It is also easy to be "liberal" if you are a minority and you don't feel you have anything to lose.

                            Some of the worst segregation and minority living conditions can be found in our most "liberal" cities and states. That is what happens when the people in power do not suffer the consequences of their policies because of class privilege. It is the situation in almost every dysfunctional third world country. Not just in right-wing dictatorships but in socialist countries as well.

                            The gini coefficient, to the extent it is explanatory, doesn't just account for problems in minority communities but in society as a whole. Minority status is a class status to the extent it prevents social mobility through competition. Such a social structure is anathema to capitalism that relies on hierarchies of competence.

                            Their is a remarkable similarity between crony capitalism, corporatism, and the oppression narratives. All classes will try and use the state to acquire and maintain advantages if allowed to do so. It is remarkable how competition becomes a sin once an individual or group acquires a privilege. You can see this aspect of human nature work out in socialist countries as the bureaucrats scramble for authority. It is a process that dominates advancement in academia.

                            You cannot eliminate class advantage and prejudice because it is part of human nature. The best you can do is promote equality of opportunity. That includes free speech without regards to superficial identity.

                              You can to an extent. By limiting government and the power of government to regulate things, you encourage more equality of opportunity. For example, if someone were relatively poor they could over time purchase land, build on that land, and over several generations get out of poverty if they wanted to. But, if government taxes that land heavily, puts onerous regulations in place on what the owner can do with it and on it, the government can make not only getting ahead this way difficult or impossible, but even discourage purchase of the land to begin with.
                              Same goes for a business. If you need an expensive license, need to hire an accountant, need to meet all sorts of regulations, it could be too costly to enter into business for many people.
                              In each case it is simply the presence of more government that is causing the problem. In fact, the rich and those already benefiting from the system might encourage government to put more regulation and taxes in place just to limit competition.
