You white folk ready to get “woke” while in a yoga class?
Ready to unpack the harmful ways white supremacy is embedded in your body, mind and heart? Ready to embody an approach to racial and social justice? Ready for a spiritual community where oppression and privilege can be addressed with compassion and honesty?
Well, if you live in the Seattle area you are in luck! There’s a new yoga class at Rainier Beach Yoga entitled, “Undoing Whiteness,” to help you achieve these goals. From the Rainier Beach Yoga web site:
In this class we will:
have a discussion around the pathology of whiteness and how contemplative practices can be supportive tools to navigate looking at our conditioning with fierce compassion
practice tools of embodiment to understand how this lives not only in our psyches but also in our physical bodies
meditate to understand how the mind is affected by whiteness, as well as how the mind can be a tool to counteract whiteness with awareness and humanity
share an action we plan to commit to in order to support our desire for racial justice in our communities
Use Shelly Tochluk’s book Witnessing Whiteness as a guide for our work. Reading is recommended, but not required.
Why “undoing” whiteness?
There has been a call for white people to name our whiteness for decades now, and this is an opportunity for white folks to face our socialization under white supremacy and how it shows up in the body, mind, emotions, relationships and all social systems. Facing whiteness is about being in process with the implicit and explicit norms that maintain white supremacy, and this exploration is to discover and bring awareness to how those norms operate within and around us.
Interrogating whiteness means that we no longer hide from the conditioning of whiteness, and we name and take responsibility for the ways white supremacy advantages and dehumanizes us.
Why are you doing this work in a gentrifying neighborhood?
Gentrification is one of the most destructive ways white supremacy is currently operating. Here is a list of ways white people like me can work towards repair:
Support POC-owned businesses
Get to know people of color in the neighborhood.
Support POC teachers
Support POC caucus space
Do not interrupt or question the need for POC caucus space
Learn about the impacts of gentrification
Offer free or low rent
Hire people of color and pay a living wage
Rainier Beach Yoga is committed to these actions. It is clear these actions will not end gentrification as this is a systemic issue that needs to be addressed systemically.

The elderly white man, 74, who was pushed off a bus by a young black woman, 25, has died from injuries sustained from the fall.
On March 21, 2019, Cadesha Bishop, 25, argued with 74-year-old Serge Fournier on a bus in Las Vegas. Seconds later, as Fournier was exiting the bus using a walker, Bishop pushed him with both hands off the bus. Fournier landed face-down and motionless on the sidewalk.
Here’s the surveillance video of the incident:
When officers first arrived at the scene of the incident, Fournier said he didn’t want to receive any medical attention even though he was bleeding from the head. However, later that night, he was admitted to a hospital. He died on April 23 from injuries sustained from the fall. The coroner ruled the death a homicide. The cause of death was described as complications from blunt force trauma to the torso.
Bishop had fled the scene of the crime before police arrived. It was only after Fournier’s family notified police on May 3 that he had passed away that Bishop was arrested three days later, on May 6.
Bishop has been charged with the murder of an elderly, vulnerable person. Police officials say that Bishop had been yelling profanities at people on the bus. When the bus stopped, Bishop and Fournier began to argue after Fournier told her to “be nicer to passengers.”
Bishop was held at the Clark County Detention Center on a $100,000 bail. She has since been released and placed under electronic monitoring. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 17 and she will remain under house arrest until that time, according to the Las Vegas Journal-Review.
Court records in Clark County, Nevada indicate Cadesha Bishop has a history of violence:
In March of 2012, she was charged with battery in a domestic violence case. Bishop agreed to a plea deal: she had to complete community service and “impulse control counseling” and to remain out of trouble.
In January 2013, Bishop was again charged with battery. She pleaded guilty more than a year later, and got a suspended jail sentence of 90 days, domestic violence counseling, and more community service.
Actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, 71, is in Johannesburg, South Africa, for the Arnold Classic Africa sporting event.
This morning, May 18, 2019, Schwarzenegger was watching a rope-skipping competition in the Sandton Convention Centre when he was approached to take a Snapchat video of the children skipping. Schwarzenegger obliges and is filmed as he gets up from his seat and then takes a video of the children while speaking into the phone camera.
In a video that has gone viral, a man (circled red in screenshot below) can be seen lurking behind Schwarzenegger.
Just as Schwarzenegger hands over the phone, the man runs up and in a flying leap, kicks Schwarzenegger in the back, screaming, “I need a Lamborghini!”
Schwarzenegger tumbles forward into a crowd of people while the attacker is held down by security.
Shortly afterwards, Schwarzenegger takes his seat by the side of the court again, seemingly unharmed by the incident. A short while later, however, he and his team get up from their seats and move through the convention center, which is where the video ends.
In a tweet this morning, Schwarzenegger assures his fans:
Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.
Arnold Sport Festival Africa issued an official statement citing organizer Wayne Price as saying the assailant is “known to the police for orchestrating similar incidents in the past”. The statement says Schwarzenegger is “fine and still in good spirits,” has no intention of laying charges and will continue with another appearance tomorrow as planned. (CBS News)
Here’s a better video showing the attack from another angle:
Schwarzenegger, solid as a boulder, does not appear to have been injured in the video. It’s his attacker who crumpled to the ground and was immediately hauled away by security.
People seem to be getting crazier by the minute . . . .

But what are we to do when the source of those obnoxious canards about Jews — that Jews are anti-Christ and anti-Christians; control the media and Hollywood; are racists and regard non-Jews as inferior; are anti-nationalist open-borders globalists — are Jews themselves? Some examples:
This post is about two prominent Jews who said really terrible things about Jews which, if uttered by non-Jews, instantly would be condemned as “anti-Semitic” and worse.
(1) Douglas Rushkoff
Douglas Rushkoff, 58, is a professor of media theory and digital economics at the City University of New York, and a media theorist, writer, columnist, lecturer, graphic novelist, and documentarian. The author of 10 books on media, technology and culture, including Nothing Sacred: The Truth About Judaism, Rushkoff is also a columnist for The New York Times, The Guardian, Discover, Daily Beast, and other media outlets.
In a video recently uploaded to 153news.net by Harold Saive, which must have been taken some years ago as Rushkoff looked much younger than he is today, Rushkoff is interviewed on camera, saying:
“The thing that makes Judaism dangerous to everybody — to every race, to every nation, to every idea — is that we smash things that aren’t truth. We don’t believe in the boundaries of nation-states. We don’t believe in the ideas of these individual gods that, you know, protect individual groups of people. These are all artificial constructions that Judaism really teaches us how to see that. In a sense, our detractors have us right, in that we are a corrosive force. We are breaking down the false gods of all nations and all peoples, because they’re not real! And that’s very upsetting to people.”
(2) Harold Rosenthal
Harold Wallace Rosenthal (1947-1976) was a graduate of Cambridge University and Harvard University. He worked for Congressman Hugh Carey (D-NY) and Senator Walter Mondale (D-MN) where he directed the senator’s legislative agenda. After a stint at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Rosenthal returned to Capitol Hill as a senior aide to Senator Jacob K. Javits (R-NY). Rosenthal was one of four people murdered in a terrorist attack in Istanbul, Turkey, on August 11, 1976.
In 1978, a pamphlet entitled The Hidden Tyranny was published, which included an interview conducted in 1976 by Walter White with Harold Rosenthal, 29, in which Rosenthal said that the god of Jews is Lucifer, and that Jews are implementing a Protocols of the Elders of Zion style plan to take over the world.
The pamphlet is denounced by both the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and by white supremacists. The ADL called the pamphlet “a fabricated document”, while Tom Metzger wrote on the White Aryan Resistance website that the interview with Rosenthal is “bogus”, “never took place,” and that “Walter White operated free and loose on some subjects, like this one.” (Wikipedia)
White recorded his interview with Rosenthal, but the recording was never made public, as agreed upon when the interview was first arranged. What we have is White’s transcription of the interview, Part One of which he made public in 1977. In 1983, White released Part Two. You can read the transcription on the website, Educate-Yourself, or listen to it as an audiobook, which is available on YouTube (below) and in MP3 format on Archive.org.
Below are some of the things Rosenthal said in the interview (source: Educate-Yourself). Make of it what you will, although it must be pointed out that Douglas Rushkoff’s words echo what Rosenthal allegedly said:
“It is a marvel that the American people do not rise up and drive every Jew out of this country…. We Jews continue to be amazed with the ease by which Christian Americans have fallen into our hands. While the naive Americans wait for Khrushchev to bury them, we have taught them to submit to our every command.”
“Americans have not had a presidential choice since 1932 when [Franklin] Roosevelt was our man; every president since Roosevelt has been our man.”
“Jews are the most intelligent people in the world so if it benefits them to change their names they do so. That’s all there is to it. They mix in your society which is plenty corrupt — so while the Jews are benefiting themselves the dumb goy doesn’t realize that these Jews with non-Jew names are Jews. I know what you’re thinking — about Jews in the government who use non-Jew names. Well, don’t be concerned because in the foreseeable future there will be no Presidential power in the United States. The invisible government is taking strength in that direction.”
“We Jews have put issue upon issue to the American people. Then we promote both sides of the issue as confusion reigns. With their eyes fixed on the issues, they fail to see who is behind every scene. We Jews toy with the American public as a cat toys with a mouse.”
“The United Nations is nothing but a trap-door to the Red World’s immense concentration camp. We pretty much control the U.N.”
“The blood of the masses will flow as we wait for our day of world victory.”
When asked how a nation could be captured without their knowing it, Rosenthal attributed this victory to absolute control of the media. He boasted of Jewish control of all the media. Any newspaper which refused to acquiesce to controlled news was brought to its knees by withdrawing advertising.
“Anti-Semitism does not signify opposition to Semitism. There is no such thing. It is an expression we Jews use effectively as a smear word — used to brand as a bigot like you guys — anyone who brings criticism against Jews. We use it against hate-mongers.”
About Jesus Christ:
“During Christ’s time, the Jews were seeking a material and earthly kingdom, but Christ offered the Jews a spiritual kingdom. This, they couldn’t buy, so they rejected Jesus Christ and had him crucified…. That’s all he was — a man who walked on the earth like any other man and this myth about Christ rising from the dead and returning to earth to visit with his disciples is a bunch of crap…. You see, instead of a leader who would make an empire for the Jews, your kind of people gave the Jews a peaceful preacher called Christ who instead of an eye-for-an-eye turns the other cheek. Rubbish! We are building and, in fact, have built an earthly empire without your kind and your disappointing Messiah.”
Jews have a pseudo-religion:
“At a very early date, urged on by the desire to make our way in the world, Jews began to look for a means whereby we might distract all attention from the racial aspect. What could be more effective, and at the same time more above suspicion, than to borrow and utilize the idea of a religious community? We’ve been forced to borrow this idea from the Aryans. We Jews never possessed any religious institution which developed out of our own consciousness, for we lack any kind of idealism. This means that a belief in life beyond this terrestrial existence is foreign to us. As a matter of fact, the Talmud does not lay down principles with which to prepare the individual for a life to come, but furnishes only rules for a sumptuous life in this world.It is a collection of instructions for maintaining the Jewish race and regulating intercourses between us and the goy. Our teachings are not concerned with moral problems, but rather with how to ‘get’….
Our life is of this world only and our mentality is as foreign to the true spirits of Christianity as our character was to the Founder of this new creed 2,000 years ago. The Founder of Christianity made no secret of his estimation of the Jews and the fact that he was not one of us. When he found it necessary he drove us out of the temple of God, because then, as always, we used religion as a means of advancing our commercial interest.
But at that time, we managed to nail Jesus to the cross for his attitude towards us; whereas, the modern Christians enter into party politics and in order to win elections, they debase themselves by begging for Jewish votes. They even enter into political intrigues with us against the interests or their own nation.
We can live among other nations and states only as long as we succeed in persuading them that the Jews are not a distinct people, but are the representatives of a religious faith who, therefore, constitute a ‘religious community,’ though this be of a peculiar character. As a matter of fact, this is the greatest of our falsehoods.
We are obliged to conceal our own particular character and mode of life so that we will be allowed to continue our existence as a parasite among the nations. Our success in this line has gone so far that many believe that the Jews among them are genuine Frenchmen, or Englishmen, or Italians, or Germans who just happen to belong to a religious denomination which is different from that prevailing in these countries…. Therefore, there is never the slightest suspicion that we Jews form a distinct nation and are not merely the adherents of a ‘confession.’ Though one glance at the press which we control ought to furnish sufficient evidence to the contrary, even for those who possess only the smallest degree of intelligence.”
The duping of Christians and co-opting of Christian churches:
“With our control of the text book industry and the news media, we have been able to hold ourselves up as the authorities on religion. Many of our rabbis now hold professorships in supposed Christian theological seminaries. We are amazed by the Christians’ stupidity in receiving our teachings and propagating them as their own…. Through our propaganda the Church has become our most avid supporter. This has even given us a special place in society, their believing the lie that we are the ‘chosen people’ and they, gentiles.
“These deluded children of the Church defend us to the point of destroying their own culture…. [A]ll wars have been white fighting white in order that we maintain our control. We controlled England during the Revolutionary War, the North during the Civil War, and England and America. Through our influence of religion we were able to involve the ignorant white Christians in war against themselves which always impoverished both sides while we reaped a financial and political harvest. Anytime truth comes forth which exposes us, we simply rally our forces — the ignorant Christians. They attack the crusaders even if they are members of their own families.”
Racial equality and democracy as tools of manipulation:
“Through religion we have gained complete control of society, government and economics. No law is ever passed except its merits have previously been taught from the pulpits. An example of this is race equality which led to integration and ultimately to mongrelization. The gullible clergy in one breath instruct their parishioners that we are a special, chosen people while in another breath proclaim all races are the same. Their inconsistency is never discovered. So we Jews enjoy a special place in society while all other races are reduced to racial equality. It is for this reason that we authored the equality hoax, thereby reducing all to a lower level….
Politically, they hail the blessings of democracy and never understand that through democracy we have gained control of their nation…. [D]emocracy is mob rule which we control through their Churches, our news media and economic institutions. Their religion is only another channel through which we can direct the power of our propaganda. These religious puppets’ stupidity is only exceeded by their cowardice, for they are ruled easily.”
“On the first and fundamental lie, the purpose of which is to make people believe that we are not a nation but a religion, other lies are subsequently based. Our greatest fear is that this falsehood will be discovered, for we will be stamped out the moment the general public comes into possession of the truth and acts upon it.”
Who/what Jews are:
“Since we do not believe in a life after death, all our efforts are directed to the ‘now.’We are not as foolish as you and will never adopt an ideology that is rooted in self-sacrifice. Whereas you will live and die for the benefit of the community, we will live and die only for our own individual self. The idea of self- sacrifice is abhorred by Jews. It is abhorrent to me. No cause is worth dying for since death is the end. The only time we unite is to preserve our individual selves. As a group of wolves unite to attack a prey, but then disperse after each is filled, so we Jews unite when peril is pending, not to preserve our community but to save our own skin.
“This attitude permeates our entire being and philosophy. We are not the creators for to create would only benefit another…. We are the ‘acquirers’ and are interested only in satisfying the ‘self’…. We never give but only take. We never labor but enjoy the fruits of others’ labor. We do not create but confiscate. We are not the producers but the parasites. We can physically live within any society, but always remain spiritually apart. To work would be to produce and the highest form of that labor would be to create. Your race has always worked for the satisfaction of what it produces. We would never work for anyone’s benefit, only for what we can get. We have used this Aryan attitude to achieve our greatest prosperity. You will work for the enjoyment you derive out of producing, while never being concerned about the pay. We take your productivity for a paltry fee and turn it into fortunes.”
“We are the most powerful international body of people in the world!…. We can destroy any country’s economy without their even being aware of it—if we want to…. We’re smart—we are powerful and at the proper time we will mix up your gentile women with the Blacks and in 50 years you’ll be all mixed up. Niggers love to s—w your white women and we encourage it by using them to our advantage…. You and I know they’re inferior people, a dumb race, but can be useful with the use of money. I mean real big money. Niggers will do anything for money. So, when the time comes—and you might even live to see it—we will have that complete control while you stupid Christians are waiting for your Christ, the impostor, to return as your savior.“
The god of Jews:
“We ARE God’s chosen people…. You and we actually have a different God…. To our god we are chosen ones. We are taught that from our childhood.”
Walter White wrote the following comments in 1983:
Dear reader—after the tape machine had been turned off, I accused Harold Rosenthal of not living up to our agreement in replying truthfully to my question as to the Jews being God’s Chosen people. He replied:
“We are god’s chosen people . . . Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer—so I wasn’t lying—and we are his chosen people. Lucifer is very much alive.”

Irami Osei-Frimpong is a graduate student, teaching assistant, and a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at the University of Georgia.
Osei-Frimpong is a racist and advocate of violence against white people:
He posts videos on YouTube as “The Funky Academic,” in which he refers to white people as “sociopaths” and “Chick fil-A employees.”
In a recent tweet that he deleted, Osei-Frimpong said that “fighting White people is a skill,” and quoted Dr. Bobby Wright’s “Blacks kill Blacks because they have never been trained to kill Whites.”
In another tweet, on January 12, 2019, Osei-Frimpong posted a picture of a guillotine with this message: “One reason Black voters aren’t more left is because White Supremacy has succeeded in getting Black people to blame themselves as opposed the legacy [sic] of government policy and racial terrorism. The French erect guillotines. They are not confused about their enemy.”
Osei-Frimpong also equates masculinity with whiteness. On Dec. 8, 2018, he posted this nonsensical tweet: “We know that men who aspire to manliness aspire to a quality that is really close to Whiteness in America…masculinity is a form of Whiteness. And the aspiration for manhood reinforces White supremacy. The same for womanhood.”
It took a Facebook comment on January 16, 2019, that finally gave Osei-Frimpong much-needed public scrutiny. As reported by Campus Reform, he posted this now-deleted genocidal and condescending comment on the University of Georgia’s Facebook page:
“Some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom. To pretend that’s not the case is ahistorical and dangerously naive.”
University administrators at first dismissed student complaints about Osei-Frimpong’s statements, claiming they were made “in his capacity as a private citizen on his personal social media accounts. At this point, we are unaware of any allegation of racially hostile or discriminatory conduct in the course of his professional duties or any statements falling outside of First Amendment protections.”
The university only altered its position that Osei-Frimpong’s Facebook comment was First Amendment-protected free speech after numerous online reports of his comment — including coverage by the university’s conservative student paper, Arch Conservative — and threats by large donors that they would withhold donating. (College Fix)
But the university continued to drag their feet for months.
Finally, in a public hearing on April 20, 2019, the university found an excuse — that Osei-Frimpong had violated its student code of conduct by lying in his graduate school application in December 2015, for which he may be dismissed from the university:
He made no mention of his prior studies at the University of Chicago.
He answered “no” to whether he had been charged or convicted of anything other than a minor traffic offense.
As reported by the AJC (Atlantic Journal-Constitution), near the end of January, the university received an anonymous call that Osei-Frimpong had omitted from his graduate school application his arrest in October 2011 for participating in an Occupy Wall Street protest during his studies at the University of Chicago.
At a six-hours-long public hearing on April 20, 2019, Osei-Frimpong claimed that the complaint against him is an attempt to “chill” his speech rights. He maintained that he left out his prior studies in political science at the University of Chicago because he was only thinking about schools where he had studied philosophy, and argued that he correctly had answered the question about prior charges or convictions because an Illinois judge had dismissed the charges against him.
To which Cheri Bliss, the university’s director of graduate student services, lamely replied: “It’s a concern you did not list (attending the University of Chicago).”

The Players: an assortment of self-loathing white leftists
They are celebrating the first year of their new Social Justice Major at the university. The women and men in the audience are mostly white, an assortment of people interchangeable at any Peter, Paul and Mary concert on PBS. We know them. The women have that smug, smarter-than-the-world smirk, and all the males have been properly gelded, not a functioning testicle in sight…
…with the one exception of the properly licensed testicle operator,
the sanctioned Fearless Leader and tonight’s speaker, Tim Wise.
Tim Wise, like Noel Ignatiev before him, has made his bones prosecuting the inborn guilt of white people (especially white men).
He has books to sell at the back of the auditorium. Tim’s favorite SJW crowd pleaser: White Like Me: Reflections on Race From a Privileged Son. And there is a new favorite: White Lies Matter: Race, Crime, and the Politics of Fear in America. Along with these you can purchase from an assortment of other essays, sure to grant clemency to a white Liberal seeking redemption from the inherent evil of his/her DNA.
Did I mention that Tim Wise recently spoke at Harvard University, and opined that Christians should be locked up because they can’t function in the real world?
Yeah, he said that. And he even used Noel Ignativ’s favorite excuse, “I was just kidding… but maybe not.”
This hits extra close to home for me, as a relative near and dear to me has given up on college after 3 and a half years. He told me that at his new college he has been told in all kinds of ways that he is the enemy of everything good, for the reason that he is white and male, and worst of all, a Christian. He is a clear headed critical thinker, and that too has brought the wrath on him.
My relative had thought it would be good to see what’s happening at the historic college chapel with the Christian student club. The Christian club turned out to be invisible, either nonexistent or in hiding. And the historic chapel was being used for drag queen shows. Demons always like to throw a party when they can desecrate a formerly holy place; no exception here.
Tim Wise, like Noel Ignatiev, is of Russian Jewish descent, and they are both atheists.
Let’s add this up. They preach the same message. They have direct ancestors reaching back to the Bolshevik Revolution 100 years ago. Their actions are not those of honest debate and scholarship, but the actions of an agent provocateur, each lecture, a Molotov Cocktail of incitement to violent revolution. Looks like the very same principalities that deceived Russia 100 years ago are making a 100th anniversary attempt to repeat their success now in America.
So relieved I’m not white!
Wait! I am white?!!!
Guess I had better run and hide. (NOT) No, we “white people” of all colors are ready to stand and fight, be it in the physical or the spiritual:
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
– 2 Corinthians 10:4
“The occupant of the White House…and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is terrorizing the Jewish community and the Muslim community. This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people. This is not going to be the country of the few. This is going to be the country of the many.”
Idi Amin, the late dictator of Uganda who was said to be a cannibal, once mocked British imperialism by having four Britons carry him on a makeshift throne when he made himself President-for-Life. He called himself the “white man’s burden”. (The Telegraph)
Here’s a contemporary version of white man’s burden.
Carmine Sabia reports for The Federalist Papers that “social justice warriors” filled with white guilt have created the Twitter hashtag #MyWhitePrivilege to apologize for being white.
Below is a sample of apologetic #MyWhitePrivilege tweets:
“#MyWhitePrivilege means most of my interactions with law enforcement are positive. I was was [sic] once pulled over for expired registration and the cop told me just to go get it renewed and send him proof that I did.” — Catherine Griwkowsky (@CGriwkowsky) March 30, 2019
“#MyWhitePrivilege allows Francis Scott Key who said ‘Africans in America are a distinct and INFERIOR race’ to write the national anthem and the song is played everywhere and demand everyone to stand. Whereas if you kneel due to injustices as black people you will be shamed. pic.twitter.com/oQDOal0hzF” — Macadon (@Macadon_YT) March 30, 2019
“Idont [sic] get scared for my life everytime I get pulled over. I dont [sic] have to worry about something in my pocket getting mistaken for a gun. I have all my doctors believe me about my pain. I have been given a leg up in life for the color of my skin #MyWhitePrivilege” — kayla cox (@kaylaccox) March 30, 2019
“#MyWhitePrivilege is that I am given the benefit of the doubt in a way my black sisters are not. Even when I am angry, I’m seen as cute and non-threatening. Sure there is a healthy dose of sexism in this, but it is a privilege to be considered non-threatening.” — Erika (@thatsdoctor2you) March 30, 2019
“When you’re born with privilege, equality can feel like oppression. To everybody complaining about the hashtag, read other peoples experiences and learn something instead of always trying to start a fight. #MyWhitePrivilege” — Bobbie Dodds (@BobbieDodds) March 30, 2019
Christopher Rivas, a Latino who calls himself a storyteller and actor, actually broke up with his girlfriend because she is white.
O.K., let me just get to it. I think I broke up with my last girlfriend because she’s white. Actually, no, I definitely broke up with her because she’s white….
It’s been a year since I broke up with my girlfriend, and I haven’t told her the real reason. I talked around it, mumbling about how I was trying to figure out who I was or whatever. She didn’t understand. I’m not sure I do either. There was nothing wrong with her at all.
I don’t really know what my tipping point was. It just kind of happened. At 30, I woke up one day, took a deep breath, looked at her and thought, “I don’t think I can date white women anymore.”
Maybe I wouldn’t have broken up with her if it hadn’t been for all the judgment coming my way. Over the years I have dated brown women and black women, but mostly white women. I hadn’t thought about why that was, but when some brown and black people in my community started giving me a hard time about dating white women, I sensed they’d be happier if I stopped….
But the real reason I think I can no longer date white women isn’t any of that. It’s because in today’s hashtag-woke society, there is mad pressure to be hashtag-woke. To be aware of the implications of whom you’re attracted to and why. Which means that in the eyes of others, the color of the women I date is a big deal. Like I’m the problem. Like I’m betraying my people if I date white women.
But I was taught that we were all one people!
I see people watching me with a stink eye, noses turned up, as if they think black and brown people would somehow be better off if I dumped my white girlfriend. It’s a lot of pressure. Along with each watchful eye, the whispers of, “Pick a side, Chris, pick a side,” fill my already noisy mind….
How did we get here? If everyone is so woke, why are things so terrible? Maybe everyone isn’t so woke. Anyway, what am I supposed to do? How do I love as a brown body in the world in a way that makes everybody happy? I fell for a white woman and she fell for me — simple as that — yet I feel as if I’m doing the wrong thing by dating her.
Am I the problem or is everyone else? Do white women find me attractive or do they see me as some exotic idea they should find attractive? Do I find white women attractive or do I see them as some exotic idea I should find attractive? Do I even know whom I’m attracted to or why?….
So here I stand, trying to be woke, and not dating white women, and feeling kind of bad about that. Because I’m definitely dating, and thinking that the decision to no longer date white women might not be my own, that any decision to choose a side doesn’t help the whole hashtag-woke thing because how do we solve anything if we just separate and isolate? And also, I mean, a lot of white women are really cool.
Obviously white women are cool. All women are cool….
Anyway, this is me yearning, praying, journaling, writing, dialoguing, putting up a one-man show, wishing, trying to pick a side, wondering how to choose myself and trying to wrap my head around this, hoping that I’m doing woke right, because something just doesn’t feel right.
The #MyWhitePrivilege white-guilt hashtag got some pushbacks. Here’s a sample:
“#MyWhitePrivilege is me entering the wrong class room, leaving 60 seconds later, and having the cops called on me cause someone thought I was a school shooter. Yes, this happened” – ☠ 𝕱𝖑𝖔𝖔𝖗 🎩 #𝕲𝖔𝖙𝖍 𝕳𝖔𝖘𝖕𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖑🖤🏥 (@Floorcina) March 30, 2019
“Asians have the highest income in the USA, but liberals are so dumb they don’t understand facts so they got #MyWhitePrivilege trending trying to perpetuate their hoax that America is a horrible and racist place that always keeps minorities down.” — Mark Dice (@MarkDice) March 30, 2019
“I can destroy the #MyWhitePrivilege myth with two words: Jussie Smollett. Can’t believe this is trending. Nice way to continue dividing our country, SJWs.” — JosiahRises (@JosiahRises) March 30, 2019
“why on God’s green Earth is #MyWhitePrivilege trending? What the Hell is wrong with you @Twitter? Why are you constantly leading the charge to divide us? Sick.. truly sick. There is no such thing as White privilege. It’s a made up concept by the left to separate us.” — Joe Pags Pagliarulo (@JoeTalkShow) March 30, 2019
If a white guy were to say those hateful things about Jews, it would be all over the news and we would never hear the end of it. So why is it okay for this Jewish medical doctor and professor to say hateful things about “whites”?
More recently, on March 28, 2019:
Berger did not deny or disavow the above composite of some of his anti-white racist tweets, but doubled down instead. Responding to a tweeter who said Berger’s racist tweets “did not age well,” Berger replied: “Nah, these are all good.”
Berger retweetedRhea Boyd, MD, an “African American” pediatrician practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area who maintains “white supremacists” hold sway over medicine and science:
“The answer is white supremacy, a foundational value in US society from which medicine is not immune. It is used to invalidate the expertise of non-whites and demand ‘evidence’ of their claims. But our evidence will never be sufficient in a field predicated on our inferiority.” “The solution then is to expose, name, and end white supremacy, in its every manifestation in medicine. Doing so will literally change what is considered science and who are considered scientists.” -3/28/19
It is profoundly disturbing that medical doctors like Berger and Rhea Boyd politicize medicine and science, calling for the elimination of “white supremacists” from those fields, which would then result in the remaking (“literally change”) of “what is considered science” — whatever that means.
Can you imagine Berger or Boyd being your physician, who practice medicine that they believe to be fundamentally warped because of “white supremacy”? Can you imagine pediatrician Rhea Boyd treating your children?
Johns Hopkins must be so proud to have this rank racist, Zakary Berger, as a professor.
