The dangerous war on ‘whiteness’

I find this both weird and disturbing.

This type of attitude criticised here WILL make racists out of some white people as it simply rubbishes them.

Some whites are offensively racist, but many are not.

It seems to be the same as Critical Race Theory which just bangs on about white privilege etc.

I know some will tell me off for posting something from Quillette, but it makes valid points that this hand-ringing anti-racism from the heducated will actually make things worse.

I wonder how many were called a ******lover at work, or the Afrikaans equivalent

When I arrived in South Africa I was met at the airport by the office manager, who was a nasty racist. He asked my how I got on with the “coons” in Uganda. I played dumb and he used every offensive term in the book. finally I said they were great and pulled out a photo taken two weeks before of me holding the hand of a young Ugandan woman about the same age as me, as I was helping her to cross a plank bridge. He was not amused and hated me thereafter !!

Telling white people to be more conscious of their whiteness is a recipe for disaster.

    You will find a strangely similar and in some ways complementary analysis, posted yesterday, at https://kenanmalik.com/2020/02/24/far-right-terror-and-mainstream-politics/ . Kenan Malik himself was born in India but grew up in Manchester, but writes regularly for The Observer, which presumably makes him, to quote an interestingly stereotyping label from the article you are re-blogging, a Guardianista.

    I deeply distrust anyone who tells me that I enjoy the benefits of white privilege. Privilege has the overtones of something that is not deserved. I am glad that I am not discriminated against, but I deserve this lack of discrimination. So, of course, does everybody else, by virtue of our shared humanity
