George Washington University professor says she lied about being black

If “white privilege” is such a real thing and beneficial, why do white people lie about being black?

From Yahoo: A US academic whose work focuses on Africa and the African diaspora has said she lied about being black.

Jessica Krug, an associate professor at George Washington University, admitted that she was in fact a white Jewish woman from Kansas City.

“I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken,” she wrote.

Her case bears strong parallels to Rachel Dolezal, a white race activist who claimed to be black. Ms. Dolezal first made headlines in 2015 when her parents outed her as white.

The former civil rights activist and African studies instructor had kept up the pretence of being African American for years, but said she “identified as black”.

Writing in a Medium post published on Thursday, Jessica Krug said she had falsely assumed identities “that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness”.

She described this behaviour as “the very epitome of violence, of thievery and appropriation, of the myriad ways in which non-Black people continue to use and abuse Black identities and cultures”, adding that she had continued the pretence even in her personal relationships.

She blamed her lies on mental health issues and trauma experienced in her early years, although she said this was not an excuse for her actions.

Ms. Krug’s post did not give a reason for her decision to admit her deception, nor its timing. However, screenwriter Hari Ziyad said her admission came “because she had been found out”.

“Jess Krug… is someone I called a friend up until this morning when she gave me a call admitting to everything written here. She didn’t do it out of benevolence,” he wrote on Twitter.

According to media reports, Ms. Krug also used the name Jessica La Bombalera as an activist.

In one video posted earlier this year, she berated white New Yorkers for failing to “yield their time for Black and Brown indigenous New Yorkers”.

George Washington University, where Ms. Krug teaches courses in African, Caribbean and diaspora history, has said it is “aware” of Ms. Krug’s Medium post but could not comment further on the case.

Twitter rage: Singer Adam Levine accused of cultural appropriation for his “corn hawk” hair style

Some people have way too much time and rage on their hands.

From Daily Mail: Adam Levine has been accused of cultural appropriation after unveiling a new haircut, which he has dubbed the ‘corn hawk.’

The Maroon 5 frontman, 40, revealed the unusual look featuring three cornrows down the center of his head and the rest of his hair shaved off.

Social media quickly responded the controversial hair style, with one user writing: ‘Another privileged white man without a clue.’

‘Why does @AdamLevine look like that sh***y rapper from the Trailer Park Boys? First you do the Halftime Show (Super Bowl), which was an all-time low, now this! Cultural appropriation plus you look like a moron,’ another Twitter user wrote.

Another tweeted: ‘Another privileged white man without a clue.’

Meanwhile gossip reporter Perez Hilton summed up the look with two words: ‘The caucasity!’

One person questioned whether it was cultural appropriation or a ‘mid-life crisis.’

Another wrote: ‘Dear Adam Levine… look at your life and then look at your choices.’

Others were adamant that white men should not be wearing their hair in cornrows, with one observer writing ‘Listen I’m all about rockin’ your own style and “you doing you.” But, someone please tell Adam Levine that dreadlocks for white dudes is NEVER ok.’

Read about the manufactured drama here.

So where’s the outrage for the following examples of “cultural appropriation?”

Guess the motto, “my body my choice” can never apply to a hairstyle you want to rock.

Chelsea Handler says she needed therapy before interviewing conservatives for her white privilege documentary

Therapy isn’t going to cure this creature.

From Daily Mail: Chelsea Handler claimed she needed ‘therapy’ before interviewing conservatives for her documentary on white privilege.

The comedian-turned-political activist made a Netflix documentary exploring the notion of white privilege called ‘Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea’.

As part of the show, Handler interviewed four white conservative women. During an appearance on American talk show The View, Handler quipped that she needed therapy before the conversations even took place.

Show co-host Sunny Hostin mentioned that during the documentary Handler had asked the four women what ‘white privilege’ meant to them, before detailing how one woman had argued that black people have privilege too and are able to get into college based on their skin colour.

Another of the women said in the interview that it was time to move on from a ‘minuscule’ issue.

The documentary has received mixed reviews among critics with Vice describing how the comic ‘stumbles through a well-meaning but misguided reckoning with her place in the world’.

Meanwhile conservative news site Daily Wire writes: ‘For both the “Woke” and sleeping viewers out there, comedian-turned-full-time political activist Chelsea Handler hits all the wrong notes in her Netflix documentary exploring her so-called “white privilege.”‘

The View co-host Hostin said she had found it interesting that Handler had spoken to the four conservative women about their polarizing opinions on the concept of white people’s privilege in society. ‘I thought it was really interesting to just hear people say that because they felt that way,’ she said.

Hostin then asked Handler what her reaction was to the interview. ‘I had to do a lot of therapy to even have these conversations with people, because I have a temper and I’m reactive,’ Handler replied.

‘And when somebody’s annoying I want to tell them that they’re annoying or that they’re stupid. But my exercise in this film was to be more quiet and to stop inserting myself.’

She went on to say: ‘In a way you could say those women hung themselves out to dry, from our perspective, but from theirs they really believe that. And it’s important for us to all understand what everyone’s really thinking and believing, and to have the conversation.

Co-host Joy Behar joined the debate, asserting that the women in the documentary needed to learn the history of slavery and Jim Crow ‘before they open their mouths’.

‘Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea’ was released on Netflix on September 13, 2019. Directed by Alex Stapleton, it strives to explore the societal privilege that benefits white people over non-white people.

SJW Love Fest at Seattle Pacific University

WARNING: Watch this only if you have 2 hours of time to waste being completely pissed off.

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

Oops! CNN legal analyst accuses radio host, who’s black, of ‘white privilege’

Yesterday, on SiriusXM Patriot radio’s David Webb Show, Webb was discussing with CNN legal analyst Areva Martin, who’s black, a recent controversy brought up by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over CBS failing to hire any black journalists to cover the 2020 election.

Martin said she agreed with Ocasio-Cortez and that it was unacceptable for media outlets to claim that there aren’t enough journalists of color available.

Webb disagreed. He said he has 31 years of experience in the media, and that “I’ve also seen it change, generationally.… I have not seen the lack of [diversity], I’ve seen, actually growth in it.” He then asked Martin if she thought Black Entertainment Television (BET) should be forced to hire a white or Hispanic reporter. Martin responded by saying it would be up to BET.

Webb then said people should be hired based on their qualifications and not the color of their skin, and that “I never considered my color the issue. I considered my qualifications the issue.”

Martin responded by playing the Left’s race card, accusing Webb of “white privilege”:

“Well, David, that’s a whole ‘other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”

The only problem is this: David Webb is even blacker than Areva Martin, as you can see in their pics below.

Webb: “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

Martin: “David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege.”

Webb: “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should have been better prepped. I’m black.”

Martin apologized by throwing her “people” under the bus, claiming that they had given her “the wrong information” about Webb.

To Fox News, Webb said (1:00 mark):

“She [Areva Martin] immediately defaulted to an attack, which is a false narrative. There is no such thing as white privilege. There’s earned privilege in life that you worked for. There are those who may have more privilege that they exert on others in the form of influence. But this is about more than what she said and the embarassment — and she should be — but the default to this easy, false narrative….

But being on Patriot radio with me, and being a conservative talk station, well, I must have been white was in her head.”

George Clooney: "There's a dark cloud hanging over our country right now"

george clooney and libtards

Damon, Clooney and Moore: Bunch of angry libtards

Feel free to keep your butt in Italy, George.
Bonus: Julianne Moore wants “re-education” for everyone.
From NY Post: George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” has a timely subplot — based both on present times and a 1957 incident — about racism in white America. That subplot, however, resounded deeply during the Venice Film Festival press conference for the film, which stars Matt Damon and Julianne Moore.
“I was watching a lot of speeches on the campaign trail about building fences and scapegoating minorities and I started looking around at other times in our history when we’ve unfortunately fallen back into these things,” said Clooney, talking about how the pic germinated.
While casting around for story ideas, Clooney found a 1957 incident that happened in Levittown, Pa., in which an African-American family moved into a suburban development; however, many white residents in the area reacted with violence. Then, while looking to try to make a film out of the Levittown story, he remembered that the Coen brothers had written a script called “Suburbicon,” so those two elements were meshed together.
Of course at that stage the Charlottesville, Va., race riots had yet to happen, noted Damon, who in the film plays a bad guy who goes all the way, to an extent that he’s “never been able to do so far” in his career.
“When we were filming we obviously could not have predicted the race riots,” said Damon. “We weren’t literally thinking that race riots would erupt in America right before this came out. But it does speak to the fact that these issues have not, and are not, going away. So there’s an honest reckoning in our country.”
As to the character Damon plays: “It’s kind the definition of white privilege when you are riding around your neighborhood on a bike covered in blood murdering people and the African-American family [who are his neighbors] is getting blamed for it,” he said.
Clooney pointed out that the film’s very dark tone reflects the anger he sees in the U.S. today.
“If you go to our country…depending on what side of the aisle you sit on, it’s probably the angriest I’ve ever seen it,” he noted. “There’s a dark cloud hanging over our country right now.” But he added: “I’m an optimist…I believe that we will get through all these things…but people are angry; a lot of us are angry.”
The “Suburbicon” director also underlined that the film “isn’t a movie about Donald Trump. … This is a movie about our coming to terms constantly with the idea that we have never fully addressed our issues with race.”
Moore, who plays a double role in the pic, made a clear-cut a statement on the issues being raised by Charlottesville.
“We are living in the United States where people are arguing about removing Confederate monuments: They must be removed,” she said. “You simply cannot have these figures from the Civil War in town squares and in universities for our children to see. As a parent and as a citizen I need to be active in the eradication of those, in the re-education of everyone. We have to take responsibility for it.”
Clooney joined her on a similar note: “This is something that is really festering right now in the United States: Talking about the Confederate flag, and the Jefferson Davis monument,” he noted.
“Now, if you want to wear it [a confederate flag] on your T-shirt or if you want to hang it on your front lawn…have at it. But to hang it on a public building where possibly African American tax payers are paying for it — and it’s a symbol of hate — that cannot stand.”

TDS: American Horror Story: Cult to help "alleviate the real world pain" of our election


Another Hollyweird product I won’t be watching.
From IGN: Putting dangerous witches, sexy vampires and demonic nuns on hold, American Horror Story: Cult pulls back the curtain to explore the psychological aftermath from the 2016 presidential campaign.
Fear and anxiety take center stage here, pitting Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters against each other in a perverse tale of progress and paranoia. Season 7 puts the cult of personality directly in the spotlight, revealing that the real monster in this horror story is us. After viewing the first three episodes of Cult — titled “Election Night,” “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” and “Neighbors from Hell” — at an advance press screening, it’s safe to say that this move is a welcome change for the series.
Using the 2016 presidential campaign — election night, specifically — as a jumping off point, it’s clear from the very first moments of AHS: Cult that fear is the main component giving the new season life. Fear is currency; it’s the motivator and the separator. In Cult, it feeds the fire of rising cult figure, Kai Anderson (Peters), and pushes phobia-ridden Ally Mayfair Richards (Paulson) to her psychological breaking point.
 “I do think politics in the past year has become entertainment in a weird way in our country, and I think this plays into that a little bit,” Ryan Murphy stated during a Q&A session that followed the screening. “I think how the show begins on election night, pro or con … I think everybody can relate to that feeling of that evening. And that was the launch of the season.”
While there are many players in the “AHS: Cult” game — Alison Pill is Ally’s wife Ivy, Billie Lourd is Kai’s sister Winter, and Billy Eichner and Leslie Grossman are creepy neighbors, The Wiltons — it’s the dynamic between Kai and Ally that elevate the story in a way many fans may not expect. “It’s not about Trump, it’s not about Clinton,” Murphy continued. “It’s about somebody who has the wherewithal to put their finger up in the wind, see what’s happening and is using that to rise up and form power.”
For Kai Anderson, the election of Donald Trump is a watershed moment — leading the blue-haired maniac on a quest for power. According to Murphy, he has wanted to explore The Manson Family in an installment of AHS for quite some time. But as the writer/director/executive producer explained, this concept has since evolved: “The thing that we’re doing is we’re really examining all different sorts of cults — and there are many, many famous ones. Throughout the season, Evan Peters is, I think, playing six different cult leaders: Kai, Manson, David Koresh, Andy Warhol … Jim Jones is a big one. And we really examine, how do those people rise to power? And why did people follow them?
On the opposite side of the spectrum is Ally and Ivy — a Michigan couple living a comfortable existence steeped in success and a heaping helping of white privilege. That detail is played upon multiple times throughout Cult, showing that both sides of the Trump/Clinton argument are fair game. From a Rachel Maddow shoutout to some residual Jill Stein-rage, there are elements of satire throughout these first three episodes that help to alleviate the real world pain and anxiety people are still experiencing.
But Ally’s storyline of how her phobias are manifesting — particularly her coulrophobia, or fear of clowns — is an affective and terrifying way of keeping the horror in American Horror Story. In many ways, this season isn’t about an American horror story, but what Murphy considers to be our American horror story, showcasing both sides of the election’s aftermath in their extremes.
 “One of the things that I personally experienced after this election was a wild increase in anxiety,” Murphy explained. “We’re on the brink of nuclear war one week, and then, the next week we’re onto something else equally extreme.” Instead of burying his head in the sand, though, Murphy decided to use AHS as a means to deal with this new reality; to, in his words: “lean into the escalation of fear in our culture.”

Know the rules: A white professor can't be Chinese because of "privilege"

daniel bell

Professor Daniel Bell: Ain’t no Rachel Dolezal…


A man can be a woman and a white woman can be black. Yet a white man can’t be Chinese. I can’t keep up with all the science-defying liberal rules anymore.
From Yahoo: A white scholar’s recent op-ed suggests he might need some lessons on his own privilege. 
Daniel Bell, a white dean at China’s Shandong University, recently penned a piece in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Why Anyone Can Be Chinese.” In it, he laments how he’s not considered Chinese despite his self-proclaimed dedication to the culture.
China, he argues, should look at identity as cultural rather than racial, concluding the piece with his ultimate hope:
“President Xi Jinping describes his broad agenda for the country as the ‘China dream,’” Bell writes. “My own China dream is more modest: to be viewed as a Chinese not just in my own mind but in the minds of my fellow Chinese.”
Bell claims to have respect for the Chinese. But his piece shows that he’s not looking at identity through the lens of the Chinese. John Kuo Wei Tchen, associate professor and director of Asian/Pacific/American Institute, NYU notes: Bell begins his piece, making comparisons between himself and a Chinese-American who “doesn’t speak Chinese or identify in any way with Chinese culture,” and “forcefully rejects” the label “Chinese.”
But the connections Bell makes are apples to oranges. Bell, a white man from Canada, ignores the real, human experiences that Chinese people live through, Tchen noted.
Bell isn’t someone whose family has been brought up in China through generations, communicating through insider references. His ancestors haven’t lived through events like the Opium Wars or the Cultural Revolution that have shaped the population’s outlook. Bell is a white man whose roots and values come from elsewhere. 
There’s another issue at hand with Bell’s comparison. Ideas of belonging and identity are tied to political environment, Tchen says. These concepts are forged out of history and traditions, constructed over time by cultural and political forces. A western view of these ideas will be different from, say, a Chinese one. Bell doesn’t seem to acknowledge that, though.
“Notions of citizenship and belonging come out of particular political cultures. Just because that’s what he believes in, he wants to apply that to China which doesn’t really make any sense,” Tchen said. “It can’t just be willy-nilly applied to any other place.”
Bell continues his argument, listing several traits of his that he believes somehow underscore his “Chineseness.” Though he brings up possible barriers to acceptance like citizenship, commitment to culture, and lack of language skills, he insists those aren’t problems for him. He points out how he’s often “the only person wearing Chinese-style clothing” at conferences. And earlier in the piece he mentions his marriage to a Chinese woman as if those details help assert Chineseness.
In another line, he even puts down native Chinese people and pretentiously writes, “millions of poorly educated Chinese citizens speak hardly any Mandarin, and yet nobody questions their Chineseness.”
However, identity isn’t so simple as checking traits off a list, Tchen said. Bell’s possession of such qualities does not make him more “eligible” to be Chinese.
To be Chinese is not a mere checklist, just like being black or from any other culture isn’t about hitting a set number of achievements.
“If he were to become an expert on Toni Morrison, if he were to then master African-American cuisine, if he had married an African-American woman, would he feel he can claim being African-American or black?” Tchen questioned.
At one point, Bell attempts to point out the flaws in seeing Chineseness as racial and describes the country’s tumultuous relationship with foreigners.
“When China is powerful and secure, foreigners are welcome and considered employable, including at the highest levels of government,” he wrote in the op-ed. “When China is weak, foreigners are often viewed with suspicion and even hatred.”
Tchen told HuffPost that he agrees that ideally, we “need to reject the very notion of ‘race’ and hence racial belonging.” These ideas don’t translate across historical and cultural differences, he says. But again, being part of a culture is dependent on historical context. Identity goes further than today’s politics and culture.
At the end of the day, Bell’s piece begs the question posed by Tchen. “Are there not deeper shared values that are more important to explore than a European Canadian wanting to be accepted as ‘Chinese?’”

Are You Guilty Of Whiteness?

If you are White, Asian, Latino, or Not-Black-Enough (like Ben Carson), this professor says you are guilty.

What consequences will society suffer from colleges indoctrinating students into race hatred? This is America, but it may soon look like South Africa, where “whites” are hunted down for perceived offenses.


https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/34091/

Dr. Kris Sealey


THE COLLEGE FIX: RACIAL ISSUES WHITE PRIVILEGE
Professor teaches students about ‘the problem that is whiteness’
NATHAN RUBBELKE – JULY 5, 2017
Editor’s Note: This is the fifth in a series of articles reporting on ‘Where Do We Go From Here: Creating An Intersectional Vision for Radical Social Change,’ a diversity conference held June 13-16 at Fairfield University
FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Serious explorations into race should focus on the problem of whiteness and be grounded in the claim that it’s a hegemonic “power apparatus,” a Fairfield University professor suggested at a recent conference aimed at pushing “radical social change” in higher education.
“So more and more, the courses that I teach on race have become courses in which I expect my students to engage in the hegemonic power of whiteness,” said Sealey, who’s taught courses such as “Black Lives Matter” and “Critical Race Theory…”

George Yancy


…Sealey’s comments were based in the book “Black Bodies, White Gazes: The Continuing Significance of Race” by Emory University philosopher George Yancy.
Discussing Yancy’s work, the professor said she’s moved by his premise that “any inquiry into the experience of blackness must include some genealogy or some history of the white gaze.” Taking the thesis seriously, Sealey said, means “to acknowledge that any critical investigation of race should devote some time to the problem that is whiteness.”
Some take-aways from this article:

  • Whiteness means a specific power apparatus that exists at the expense of the disempowerment of black people.
  • To be white in the U.S. is to be a perpetuator of the power apparatus unless one actively and consistently resists.
  • It is possible, perhaps necessary, to acknowledge one’s personal implications in the white power apparatus.
