I believe I have written something similar in the past, or at least predicted something like this to happen, where I said that “white guilt” would get so bad that white people would get to the point where they are okay with segregating between themselves and minorities in various places, such as college graduations, etc.. Well, that’s exactly what some students in Columbia University have come to agree with.
While white guilt is not inherently mentioned, one can tell that that’s the only real reason for any person in this day and age to find segregation to be acceptable (and in the future, would likely be a requirement).
Ami Horowitz went to this college campus to ask the students about some universities segregating things like graduations, dorms and even gyms. (video below).
Within the campus, where there were a lot of white (mostly female) people, they all unanimously agreed that it would be okay to have a “separate but equal” system, as long as things were, indeed, equal.
This is the precise type of racial system that existed in America from the Emancipation Proclamation until the Civil Rights movement. And the Left has been so adamant about retaining racial inequalities that they’ve actually convinced some white people that segregation is good for basically the exact opposite reasons that they originally had.
Back when segregation was largely a thing, white Leftists considered the white race to be the superior, or at least more important race. While the system was “separate but equal”, one could hardly consider things to have been equal. There were separate drinking fountains, public restrooms, etc. and white business owners could refuse service to anyone who was coloured. So while in the eyes of the Constitution, black people were still considered equals and people, what with the 13th and 14th Amendments being in place, they were still considered as less than equal by racists.
But now, this sort of system seems to be coming back, but with white people being “considered” the inferior race, at least by white people themselves. Considering the idiotic and almost masochistic self-deprecation of having white guilt and believing oneself to have benefited from “white privilege”, these white people have within themselves an interesting victim mentality where they see themselves as having been an oppressor to people and wish to repent of that by castigating themselves in the public eye.
It’s insanely stupid, but that’s the reality for many ignorant white people (who, surprise, surprise, tend to lean Left).
Now, there was another student there who appeared to be Asian, or at least of Asian descent, who also agreed that it was okay to have such segregation. “I don’t see a problem with that. I want to be with people like me.”
This is important to note and remember down the line, so please keep this in mind as we go along.
In any case, that was the situation with mostly white people within the campus. But Ami didn’t stop there. He also went outside the campus, where he found a lot of black people, all of whom said it was dumb to segregate based on skin color, some even pointing out that it’s racist and discriminatory, even if that’s not the intention.
One black woman said: “Why? Are you going back in time? Why are you separating? We’re all together.” When asked if she thought it was racist to do that, she answered: “I would think.”
A black man said: “I don’t understand the logic there. It’s obviously terrible to separate people by race. Separating people by race at the gym? I don’t even understand that… So white people don’t get their feelings hurt when they get dunked on?”
That’s precisely right! Well, maybe not the joke about white people getting dunked on, but the part about it not being logical and obviously being a very bad thing to separate people by race. It’s really dumb and does nothing to help anyone, apart from white people who feel white guilt about perhaps even being around minorities and being reminded of such white guilt. Honestly, while the intention may not be racist, that is 100% racist.
Another young black man said: “I feel like that’s basically segregation. We should all be together.” Another man agreed: “I feel like that’s segregation and that shouldn’t be happening. Discrimination might not be the ultimate goal, but people take it that way… It’s all about social skills, and if you can’t converse with people that are not the same skin color as you, then there’s no reason for you to be social at all.”
And I have a few things to say about this. First of all, they felt that this is segregation and discrimination BECAUSE THAT’S PRECISELY WHAT IT IS! Separating people by race is segregation and discrimination!
Secondly, and lastly, remember the words of that one seemingly Asian student who said she wanted to be with people like her. That’s not necessarily a terrible thing and she can hang out with whomever she wants, but it is still a fairly dumb thing to believe. Like the young man said, if you can’t converse or interact with someone who is not your same skin color or race, there’s no point to you being social at all.
Going further than that, you would have a terrible time in the real world, where there are tons of people who are not going to be like you. Around 75% of the country is white. Most of your interactions will be with white people. If a non-white person finds trouble speaking to white people, that will be a massive detriment to them in life. And if a white person finds trouble speaking to a non-white person, the same thing can happen.
Now, I can understand if it is in our nature to want to be with people who are most like us. Personally, I’d rather have conservative, Christian friends. But for the most part in my life, about 95% of my friends have either not been into politics, been liberals or simply not been Christians. Considering I was living in Portland, Oregon when I was attending high school, it was unlikely for me to find very many conservative and/or Christian friends there. I did have one, but for the most part, I hung out with liberals or apolitical people in general.
Were I to have lived inside my own bubble where I could not withstand someone having a differing opinion from me, I would’ve found high school to be far tougher than it was.
But there is one huge distinction that needs to be made between me and someone like the Asian student. I don’t care one wit about someone’s skin color. The conversation the student had was about race, and she said she would want to be with people like her. While racism and discrimination may not have been what she intended, that is basically what she comes off as. A racist.
While I also prefer to be with people that are like me, that is in the sense of common beliefs and values. I would far prefer to marry a Christian girl than a non-Christian girl; a conservative girl than a non-conservative girl. However, her skin color is not even close to a problem.
But many MSM writers don’t agree. On the New York Times alone, I’ve seen a handful of articles from white people or even non-white people who have some sort of issue with the fact they are dating or are engaged to someone who is not their same skin color. It’s racist, but the truly sad part is that they don’t even consider that to be racist.
Racism only happens when a person is shallow enough to consider someone’s skin tone to be a major factor in something. When someone finds some sort of problem with the fact someone is GENETICALLY DIFFERENT from oneself. And I can’t say I’m surprised to see that this sort of problem exists pretty exclusively on the Left.
Whether it’s malicious shaming of someone else’s skin color or supposedly well-intended shaming of one’s own skin color, racism is racism. And it courses in the Left’s veins.
And do you want to know what truly seals the deal in this whole ordeal? Ami Horowitz didn’t just interview white-guilt-ridden people and dumbfounded African Americans. He also interviewed an Imperial Wizard from the Ku Klux Klan. And surprise, surprise, the KKK member agrees with the white students about segregation, though for different reasons.
It is truly interesting to see how the Left has managed to do a 180 on society’s view about racism. White Leftists went from admonishing black people and other minorities to blaming white people and having white people feel guilt over things white Leftists have done in the past to the point where white liberals once again feel segregation and “separate but equal” systems are a good thing, even if for different reasons.
This is why I so often call the Left evil and say they do the work of Satan. He is known as the “Great Deceiver”. And that moniker can also be applied to many on the Left.
What an odd thing this “progressive movement” appears to be, huh?
