In a recent debate held at Harvard, which was once a university, the winning team suggested that white males could atone for having “white privilege” by killing themselves. Declared the winners, who were black, “white life is wrong” and “must never be affirmed.” The cringing liberal white debaters let it stand unchallenged.
Imagine, if you can, any two white persons, under any circumstances, publicly declaring that black males ought to kill themselves, and so on. Every celebrity in the country would be denouncing it. They would levitate. Their heads would spin around 360 degrees. The president, the attorney general, and every oppressed black entertainer earning a zillion bucks a year would all be screaming for the speakers’ heads and apologizing to the whole world for America’s intractable racism. And they would be calling for radical policy changes to cope with it.
America has had almost eight years of uninterrupted race-baiting, coming straight down from the top. But the political leaders, despite their high visibility, are only the tip of the iceberg.
In colleges and universities all across the land, students are being taught that “white privilege” is the root of all evil. Now they’re teaching it to military recruits, too.
If you’re black, every problem that you have in life, every short-coming, every bad judgment, every error, every failure—hey, it’s not your fault! It’s not your responsibility. You’ve only got those problems because “white privilege” gives those horrible white people an edge over you, and you’ll never be able to catch up, they’re in an ages-old conspiracy to keep you down, blah-blah. That’s what they’re teaching you in college. You will never amount to anything unless The Government—by which is meant left-wing politicians—acts to avenge you on these privileged whites, knocking them down and giving you their stuff.
You’d think people would be ashamed to listen to such a message, wouldn’t you? “What do you mean, I’ll never amount to anything unless the government sticks it to white people and gives me their stuff?” But if no one was listening, they wouldn’t be teaching this lesson.
If you’re white, the lesson is that you, personally, are responsible for every difficulty ever faced by every non-white individual—and you have got to be made, by The Government, to make up for it. There’s no escaping your guilt: white privilege is like Original Sin, you’re born with it. So if you’re unemployed, hungry, and living in a lean-to, but you’re white, you are exploiting some black entertainer who gets paid a million dollars an hour to be on TV and tell the whole world how exploited and oppressed he is.
This is making me mad, just writing about it—and that’s exactly what our race-baiting leaders and educators want. They want blacks hating whites and blaming them for everything. Which will naturally result in whites hating blacks and blaming them for everything.
When we should all get together to hate liberals.
They want us racially divided, they want us hating each other, because it’s good for them politically: divide and rule, and stay in power till the sun burns out. That’s why the colleges teach “white privilege.” That’s why H. Clinton says to blacks, “I’ve got your back”—because she wants them to believe Whitey’s going to stick a shiv between their shoulder blades unless they elect her to protect them.
God blesses peacemakers. He doesn’t bless those who stir up strife where none exists, who teach people to hate and fear those who’ve never done them any wrong, who raise up storms of envy, all merely for their own advantage. Those who do this are guilty of atrocious sin; and those who abandon their better judgment, and listen to the troublemakers because it’s what they want to hear, are also guilty.
I don’t know how the Lord will handle such a nation of blockheads. If God’s judgment came crashing through their living room ceilings, they’d never recognize it for what it was. White privilege must’ve caused it. Or homophobia, income inequality, or climate change. Whatever. Anything but our own sins. Anything but our own folly. If our politicians couldn’t explain it away, then surely our scientists could.
Lord God, hear us, who still pray to you! These things are done without our consent and against our will, and we have spoken against them repeatedly, to no effect.
God save us.
