The concept of “antiracism” is very blatantly and obviously racism masquerading as its opposite. Often times, it is openly against white people, as proponents of “antiracism” often declare that all white people are bad. That there are people out there who do not see this as asinine and blatant racism is baffling to me, even more so that some would try to justify it by citing the past woes of racism from white people.
But there is no doubt in any sane person’s mind that this is nothing but the perpetuation of that same racism that these people claim to denounce, only directed at the race which, in their mind, is responsible for racism in the first place (ignoring entirely that all races would consider themselves superior to the others because that is how tribalism and homogeneity tend to work).
Because this is a “woke” stance, colleges saw fit to try to implement this insanity, namely Purdue University, who tried to mandate students in a choir group to take and complete “antiracist” training courses before they could participate in choir activities.
Back in January, Purdue Musical Organizations announced that its students would be required to take six courses on “antiracism”, including classes called “White Privilege, White Supremacy, and White Fragility,” as well as “White Saviorism and How To Be A Better Ally.”
Before I move on about how the school backtracked on this, I would just like to point out the irony that these Leftists undoubtedly missed. It’s rather ironic that they claim that white supremacy is still a thing, or that it is engrained in every aspect of American life and society, and then go on to claim there is also white fragility around it.
So white people both are superior or have the power and authority to rig things to favor them AND they are fragile in their core. Which is it? Do they have the power to manipulate these things so fervently, or are they just trying to maintain a fragile, “Lost Cause” mentality? Because if it’s the former, and they do have as much power and influence as these “antiracist” lunatics claim they do, then how is it a fragile mentality of trying to futilely hold on to that?
And regarding the second course, it is extremely ironic that white people working within Purdue’s administration would be willing to go along with all of this. They, themselves, want to be considered “saviors” to minorities.
“I am one of the good ones!” is what they are basically trying to say with this. And it is particularly ironic and outright hilarious when they attempt to attack a minority person who disagrees with them surrounding this topic. If a black man tells them “this is stupid”, they will call him a “coon” or a “n****r” or an “Uncle Tom” (despite the fact that Uncle Tom is the hero of the story, not a race traitor).
“You don’t care enough about your own people” is the charge these (often white) SJWs throw at black people who would rather be judged by the content of their character than the color of their skin.
With this embrace of “antiracism”, white liberals are trying to be white saviors to minorities. Saving them from what, you might ask? From themselves, as minorities clearly do not know better and need to be led by hand to a better future (sarcasm, for those who missed that).
While I earlier noted that “antiracism” is openly anti-white, what it does practically speaking is anti-black and anti-minority in general. It’s moving society backwards in an attempt to bring back segregation, only this time, by trying to convince black people that it’s best for them to segregate themselves from white people.
But in any case, like I said earlier, Purdue backtracked on this following student outcry. But they didn’t outright stop the classes. They simply went from mandating students to take it to “strongly encouraging” students to take the now-optional courses.
“The series will be offered beginning in March. Recognizing the stresses presented by COVID, as well as the existing commitments that many students have outside of [Purdue Musical Organizations], the series is not required, but participation is strongly encouraged,” wrote PMO spokesman Tim Doty to the Washington Free Beacon in an email.
Now, I don’t know exactly what the students complained about with this. I don’t know if they were against the courses in general or just against the fact that they were mandatory, or as Doty suggests, that they might have some concern with COVID (though they shouldn’t, seeing as there is virtually no chance of them dying to the virus), but considering these are college-indoctrinated students, I’m more willing to believe it’s at least one of the latter two, as opposed to the former – the idea that they were against the courses in general.
But I do not know for sure, and there well could be at least some students who were against the idea of taking such ridiculous classes to begin with (not to mention that there is no real connection between “white privilege” or whatever else and music, so why would choir kids have to take these courses?).
At any rate, I hope that we can successfully fight back against the idea of “antiracism” as that would only serve to undo decades of progress regarding race relations in the country.
