In the wake of the Derek Chauvin trial, the topic of race is once again a hot-button issue at the forefront of current media coverage. Since the Obama Era, race relations have been on the decline, especially between blacks and whites.
With the most recent emergence of Black Lives Matter onto the political and cultural scenes, even more fuel (literally) has been added to this fire. Over the past few years, conversations about racism and police brutality have become significantly more prominent in America.
As we know, many of these instances of alleged racism-inspired by police brutality have continued to be covered with misinformation and extreme bias.
This propaganda-style media coverage of such events has been met with consequences. Aside from the apparent destruction, BLM continues to perpetuate its anti-police agenda, mainly when a white police officer kills a black individual. BLM uses such occurrences to push out this narrative that any time a black individual dies in the hands of a white police officer, it MUST be due to racism.
The false narrative created by BLM radicals feeds into an even more alarming issue, which takes the form of these radicals' cure for racism: abolishing whiteness.
What does "abolishing whiteness" mean? These radical have various ways of expressing what "whiteness" is and how it can be dissolved. Some are very direct about their disdain and downright hatred of "whiteness," while others express it subtly. As I'm sure many of you have, I have scrolled across countless posts on Twitter that were blatantly racist towards white people and would no doubt have been removed if directed at any other race. It's no secret that these radicals have an absolute hatred towards the white race. In most cases, they wear their hatred towards whites as a badge of honor.
The cesspool that is Twitter isn't the only trash heap where you can find this sort of toxic language. Plenty of media platforms have also taken part in promoting this anti-white rhetoric. You can find everything from guides directed explicitly towards white people on "being less racist," explanations on why "all white people are racist," "things white people ruin," right down to books and articles about "abolishing whiteness."
Can you imagine if we were making these rules and guides for non-white people? I thought we agreed years ago that doing so was racist? According to radicals and most left-wingers, white people can't experience racism, and minorities "can't be racist," so applying these rules and negative assessments towards white people is acceptable.
It's abundantly apparent that these radicals seek to connotate the white race as a negatively mainstream notion.
"White" is meant to be a synonym for "bad."
It's becoming more apparent that an anti-white agenda not only exists but is increasingly more prevalent in mainstream discourse. The narrative that white people are inherently racist and must "unlearn racism" is becoming socially acceptable, even to many misguided, virtue-signaling white liberals who have idiotically attached imaginary chain shackles of white guilt unto themselves. These radical extremists are reaching a certain level of success in poisoning our society with these vile ideals when promoting their anti-white rhetoric.
In today's society, we're seeing the re-emergence of segregationist speech. Several colleges have embraced the idea of racial segregation for their students-barring white students from certain activities, prioritizing minority students, and allowing separate graduation ceremonies.
The efforts and sacrifices of those who paved the way for the Civil Rights Movement are meaningless to these radicals, who are actively undoing their historic hard work.
Additionally, white people are the only group that can't have "nationalism" attached to their identity. White history must be condemned, and any white person who has pride in their heritage must be scolded as a "supremacist" and a "racist," regardless of what their ancestors did or didn't do. Even if that white person is the child of immigrants who escaped a brutal regime and lived in poverty for many years (some Romanian-Americans I know, for example), they still have "privilege." They should be held responsible for "oppressing" minorities in America.
I have previously written about the added layer of prejudice towards white Southerners-the worst enemy of race-baiting radicals. White Southerners are expected to live in shame and in a constant state of apology. It's become acceptable to accuse them of holding dear the same belief system of yesteryear, with no protest being enough to convince these race-baiting radicals otherwise. Today, the identity and culture of a white Southerner aren't acceptable in society.
The heightened racial tensions we're currently witnessing are based on ignorance and propaganda, thus leading people into blind hatred. Are we to pretend that much of the anti-white language being used today is not the same sort of language used by segregationists then towards blacks?
Racism is always alarming, but what's so troubling about the emerging racism towards whites is that so many others don't find it problematic. This anti-white language is used quite openly, yet it doesn't seem to faze many other white people. Will we allow this growing problem to reach the point that it did for blacks during the Jim Crow era? How much of this language will self-hating white liberals accept before they begin to realize it's a problem?
Discriminatory laws, genuine oppression, and even issues as severe as genocide all begin with discriminatory language. They aren't simply implemented and carried out overnight. I'm not here to try to make any claims about what the future has in store for white people or this country, but I will say is that we can't continue to tolerate blatant racism regardless.
More than fifty years after the Civil Rights Movement, it's shocking and disheartening that living harmoniously is too idealistic for some. Perhaps it will remain a dream despite the progress we were making in the years following that historic movement. Enough liberal politicians were able to fan the old embers of racism to get that fire started once again to pander to their race-baiting base. After all, if it weren't for their ability to convince most minorities that they're victims in need of the government's hand, they wouldn't have a platform at all.
But what do we do about this problem?
It's difficult for some people to stand up to the anti-white agenda because upon doing so, they make themselves a target to the radical anti-white mob. Speaking out against this growing issue will immediately get them painted as a "white supremacist" and a "racist." It's understandable why the average person wouldn't feel inclined to get involved, especially when other white people are actively promoting the anti-white agenda. I don't know what it will take for people in this country to push back against anti-white rhetoric collectively, and it's alarming to consider what extremes it might reach before that ever happens.
Regardless, it's sad to see such a great divide in our nation over an issue that many of us thought had been put to rest more than fifty years ago. What kind of future are we making for ourselves if we continue down the dark path we have found ourselves at the hands of race-baiting cultural Marxists?
Racism is ALWAYS wrong. Anti-white rhetoric is just as inexcusable as rhetoric against any other race. The woke mob will continue to prevent Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream from being a reality. Until we decide to put our foot down against this hateful and divisive language, the anti-white agenda will only continue to grow.
Where do we draw the line?
