The white privilege narrative continues to advance in America.
Increasingly, the idea that white people are responsible for the ills of minorities is being pushed in our society to the point that an all-out, genuine hatred for white people is taking hold.
Students in our universities are being taught that America, and her system of government, was designed explicitly for white men and that it enables them to exploit minorities for their own benefit.
White people, according to the radical left, are recipients of unearned privileges and enjoy the protections of institutions that were designed exclusively for their economic system of capitalism.
Furthermore, students are taught that minorities cannot discriminate against white men because they have no institutional power.
In other words, because of white privilege it is morally acceptable to discriminate against white men based purely on their race because they are privileged.
The goal of the white privilege lie is to create the illusion that minorities are living in a system of oppression, held down by a nation rooted in white supremacy. Unfortunately, this may be true.
The latest example of this white privilege mania comes from a professor of math education at the University of Illinois, Rochelle Gutierrez.
She claims that the teaching of algebra and geometry perpetuate white privilege.
Her arguments posit the notion that white men are often credited with success in mathematics and demonstrate a greater capability in math than minorities.
Furthermore, she claims that this advances racism in society, particularly if minority students are performing worse than whites.
She is arguing that mathematics should now be taught from a political angle which would help make students aware of white privilege.
Wouldn’t the idea that mathematics pushes white privilege and racism stem from a supremacist attitude in the first place?
Wouldn’t an individual that believes black people, for example, are not as capable as members of another race of doing algebra really be saying they believe that race is superior to blacks?
What happens in instances where a black student is performing better than a white student?
Does that student now have privilege or are they still a victim of white supremacy?
The truth of white privilege is that it is a useful tool used to create hate and discontent in our society, and that blacks really may be victims of white supremacist agenda. Just not from the United States.
The idea of using race as a weapon has its origins in the Communist Revolution in the early twentieth century.
Leon Trotsky, leader of the revolutionary army, allegedly coined the term racism to discredit the eastern Europeans who stood in the way of communist objectives.
In modern America, the term white privilege is being used as a weapon to silence pro-American opinions which might threaten the left-wing agenda of wealth re-distribution.
Creating the illusion that a certain segment of our society is the recipient of unearned privileges based purely on skin color is sure to cause the necessary angst needed to cause the cultural revolution the left has been desiring for years.
Furthermore, the race-based agenda can be traced back further to Italian communist, Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci, author of The Prison Notebooks, which outlined a detailed plan which entailed a march through the institutions to bring about social change, understood that the traditional Marxist idea of dividing society into an oppressed and oppressor class had not worked.
Therefore, he turned his gaze upon cultural norms and further divided society into numerous oppressed groups.
The word “hegemony” is used to describe the influence the dominant culture has over the rest of society.
Gramsci coined the term “counter-hegemony” in order to destroy the influence of a dominant culture by turning every social group into an oppressed victim of that culture.
White privilege, or white supremacy, is being used to define a dominant, oppressive culture in the United States in this manner.
Every other social group whether they be blacks, Latinos, homosexuals, transgenders, feminists and now even people who may not be good at math are victims of white privilege and white supremacy.
“It becomes clear that one cannot understand either the meteosric rise or apparent immunity of political correctness to attack without understanding Gramsci. Rarely would I recommend studying a Marxist social philosopher, but this guy merits our attention. Gramsci (1891-1937) agreed with Karl Marx that every society could be divided into "oppressor" and "oppressed" classes (e.g., Marx’s own "bourgeois" and "proletariat"), but for the first time, expanded the latter into an ensemble of subordinate, marginalized groups instead of a single, homogeneous group. Whereas Marx had spoken only of the proletariat, Gramsci spoke not just of property less workers but also of "woman, racial minorities and many ‘criminals.’" Fonte documents how Gramsci distinguished two ways the dominant group exercises control, whereas Marx had only written of one. First, there is direct domination through coercion or force – political might in service of the economic interests of the bourgeoisie. Second, there is what Gramsci calls hegemony, which means the pervasive and mostly tacit use of a system of values that supports and reinforces the interests of the dominant groups. The repressed groups may not even know they are repressed, in Gramsci’s view, because they have internalized the system of values that justifies their repression. They have internalized a "false consciousness" and become unwitting participants in their own domination.”
In this book, he details his experience as a black man with the Communist Party and a plot to use black Americans to bring about communism in America.
The communists exploited and created grievances which put the black man at odds with the American capitalist system.
"Ten years I labored in the cause of Communism. I was a dedicated "comrade." All my talents and efforts were zealously used to bring about the triumph of Communism in America and throughout the world. To me, the end of capitalism would mark the beginning of an interminable period of plenty, peace, prosperity, and universal comradeship. All racial and class differences and conflicts would end forever after the liquidation of the capitalists, their government, and their supporters. A world union of Soviet States under the hegemony of Russia would free and lead mankind on to Utopia."
"Little did I realize until I was deeply enmeshed in the Red Conspiracy, that just and seeming grievances are exploited to transform
idealism into a cold and ruthless weapon against the capitalist system — that this is the end toward which all the communist
efforts among Negroes are directed."
Manning states that he was in a position of power within the ranks of the Communist Party and while in this position he began to see just how the American black man was being used to push a policy of division.
He claims that white communists lorded over blacks within the party, and their activities were directed by those working at the Kremlin under the guise of white and black men uniting to bring capitalism to its knees.
The communists claimed to be the champion of the black man and all his struggles despite the fact they never benefitted from the millions raised by communist front groups posing as civil rights organizations.
Today, the Democrat party claims to be the leader in defending civil rights of the American oppressed and downtrodden even though they govern over the clear majority of inner-city ghettos.
Black Americans have been voting Democrat for decades and have not benefitted from the millions of dollars raised by corrupt politicians to win elections.
Through the white privilege narrative, Democrats have convinced black Americans that they have a reason to be bitter towards whites.
They have been taught they are oppressed victims unable to rise out of poverty because of white privilege.
In chapter 7 of Color, Communism, and Common Sense, Manning points to the specific plan to blame the white man for all the black man’s problems.
This is essentially what the white privilege philosophy has done.
The white privilege lie has destroyed the ability of many black men to take responsibility for themselves as they are now trapped in a generational welfare mentality, which is an essential ingredient to bringing about communism.
According to Manning, the objectives of the communists were to make the black man feel sorry for himself, blame whites for their failures, ignore opportunities around him, make him jealous of the success of other races in America, and condition him to look for quick easy solutions as substitutes to honest effort in a competitive market.
The expected results were to be a population of underclass citizens who blamed the white man’s system of government as being everything that is wrong in their lives.
Isn’t that what we are seeing today? An effort to indoctrinate black people into the idea that the society they live in is designed for privileged whites who exploit minorities?
The entire agenda revolves around the idea of creating a communist revolutionary army by teaching the minorities they are victims of white supremacy.
At the time being it seems to have been enormously successful as nearly every facet of our society from football to algebra now has the white privilege stigma attached to it.
Freedom relies upon a population exercising good judgment and personal responsibility.
If a populations ability to take responsibility for their own actions is compromised, then freedom has little chance.
If you can’t take responsibility for yourself, someone will have to take responsibility for you.
This is something that the communists understood very well, and they have systematically destroyed America’s sense of personal responsibility by not only creating an atmosphere of mistrust and jealousy among minority cultures but by demoralizing and demonizing the majority.
Many people in America are now afraid to speak for their values because they are likely to be labeled racist for doing so.
The true white supremacists are those seeking to use race as a means of obtaining power.
Most Americans believe that people achieve things based on merit and the effort they put into something.
White privilege posits the idea that blacks and other minorities suffer because they are not capable, and they need the iron fist of government leveling the playing field to make things fair. This simply is not true.
People of all nationalities come to this great country and make something of themselves, they may not be millionaires, but they don’t have to be.
They achieved more than they would have in their home country.
Black people in America continue to be taught the politics of resentment, making them prime recruits for the cultural revolution desired by the left.
If the Democrats and the communists really cared about the black man, they would look at the predicament they are in and start teaching them that they have the opportunity in America.
After all, the left believes that whatever you are taught in your formative years tends to develop into unshakable convictions.
"Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at: first, that influences of the home are 'obstructive' and verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective ... It is for the future scientist to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen." -Bertrand Russell, quoting Johann Gottlieb Fichte, the head of philosophy & psychology who influenced Hegel and others – Prussian University in Berlin, 1810
If they really cared, wouldn’t they teach them they are just as capable as anyone else instead of setting in stone the convictions of envy?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
