No, these are NOT “white” things



The Smithsonian’s National African American History Museum, in an effort to get to the head of the pandering line, established a section of the museum dedicated to educating people about “whiteness.” 

Before the leftist mob tried to redefine the word “racism,” which simply meant prejudice against others based on perceived racial characteristics. Racist discrimination, racial oppression, and racist abuses of power were all distinct concepts, of which racism was one component and the discrimination or abuse of power was another.

The leftists, though, have tried to hijack the word “racist” so that it only applies in the context of power relationships and so that it can flow only from whites (the “powerful”) toward members of other groups.

This is malicious nonsense, and its fruit is apparent in the museum’s malignant furtherance of racism under the guise of combating it.

From the museum web page:

Whiteness and white racialized identity refer to the way that white people, their customs, culture, and beliefs operate as the standard by which all other groups of are compared. Whiteness is also at the core of understanding race in America. Whiteness and the normalization of white racial identity throughout America’s history have created a culture where nonwhite persons are seen as inferior or abnormal.

This white-dominant culture also operates as a social mechanism that grants advantages to white people, since they can navigate society both by feeling normal and being viewed as normal. Persons who identify as white rarely have to think about their racial identity because they live within a culture where whiteness has been normalized.

Thinking about race is very different for nonwhite persons living in America. People of color must always consider their racial identity, whatever the situation, due to the systemic and interpersonal racism that still exists.

Whiteness (and its accepted normality) also exist as everyday microaggressions toward people of color. Acts of microaggressions include verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults toward nonwhites. Whether intentional or not, these attitudes communicate hostile, derogatory, or harmful messages.

So what constitutes this horrible “whiteness”? Let’s go over the elements.

  • Individualism
  • Self-reliance
  • Nuclear family
  • Scientific method
  • Objective, rational linear thinking
  • Protestant work ethic
  • Hard work being the key to success
  • Respecting authority
  • Planning for the future

I’m sorry, but these aren’t “whiteness” things. These are keys to success irrespective of religion or color. It is actually highly demeaning to minorities to suggest that these elements are not and cannot be part of their lives. Instead of educating, the museum has actually engaged in the bigotry of low expectations.

The Smithsonian should be ashamed.

I guess it would be an exploitation of my white privilege to even enter the museum.

@Deplorable Me: I guess it would be an exploitation of my white privilege to even enter the museum.

Especially to PAY to enter that museum.

As of a few moments ago there’s this:

The National Museum of African American History & Culture, part of the federal government’s Smithsonian Institution system, has removed from its website a chart listing “the ways white people and their traditions, attitudes and ways of life have been normalized over time and are now considered standard practices in the United States.
Critics suggested those attributes and qualities, rather than being the product of “whiteness,” are universal values that can help anyone lead a more satisfying and successful life.
Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen said on Fox News Thursday. “It’s racist to say that black people don’t possess these characteristics, or that it is alien to black people to have these characteristics.”

Now, maybe blacks could make a chart telling us what to expect of blacks in charge, seeing as how they want the job.

Real hoot !
The photo they sleep so long plants can take seed grow in their hair…ewww.

The infographic is pretty accurate…about American culture, that is…as built primarily by Europeans.

But seriously, I’m impressed they framed it like this.

I would say that since the USA is 67% “white”, if you don’t share the above values you should leave or expect to be poor/ in jail.

After James Harden wore a Blue Lives Matter bandana around his face earlier this week and was swiftly condemned for it, the NBA clarified its masking policy: all players are required to wear masks, but they must depict the Communist Chinese flag.
“We need to stay safe, mask up, and show our support for the Communists,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “American flag masks, Blue Lives Matter masks, or any other unapproved political statement will not be tolerated. We have to love our neighbor by masking up and showing our loyalty to President Xi, may he live forever.”
“This is about keeping our players safe and keeping the money flowing in from China.”
At publishing time, it had been confirmed that all jerseys will now read, “WORKERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!” on the back.
-got to love the babylon bee

The Smithsonian is “woke”. That means they follow the Valerie Jarret script in supporting Antifa and BLM, and tear down our beloved Nation.
No lovers of freedom, the Directors of our National Museums could find no room for Justice Clarence Thomas in the Museum of Black History.
They will soon call for the destruction of the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials.
And the elimination of all statuary on the National Mall.
And a permanent end to the National Archives. Cannot have a Constitution, don’t you know. It is not Communist.
But boy are they woke.
