In December 2016, a Drexel professor wanted a white genocide for Christmas. He went on to clarify his remark by saying “when the whites were massacred during the Haitian Revolution, that was a good thing indeed.” A teaching assistant at the University of Georgia proclaimed “we had to kill some white people to get out of slavery. Maybe if we’d killed more during the 20th century we still wouldn’t talk about racialized voter disenfranchisement and housing, education and employment discrimination.” Another professor, this one from Fairfield, claimed “to be white in the U.S. is to be a perpetuator of the power apparatus unless one actively and consistently resists.” In an interview, a University of Kansas professor said that white people need to “re regulate” themselves so as not to commit further violence. A New York Times writer wondered if his children can be friends with white people. “I will teach them to be cautious, I will teach them suspicion, and I will teach them distrust. Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people.” Another from the Times compared white people to dogs.
Politicians are no better. The Democratic Party is full of racist demagogues. They are quick to call anyone who opposes them politically a Klansman or a Nazi. And we have a bigot in the White House right now. Up north in Canada, the Prime Minister has compared ordinary truckers and bakers (who brought them baked goods) to terrorists. And racist fanatics are running our K-12 schools across the nation. They are teaching students to hate white people. They teach kids that America is a hideous nation full of white bigots. Children as young as six have been told they are racist because they are white.
