It’s 2017! Like, c’mon guys! You’d think racism would be a thing of the past by now, wouldn’t you? Well, unfortunately, here are some recent stories to highlight how much of a problem racism is in [the current year]:
This may not have happened in 2017, but I have to mention it because it is so extreme and it got so little press. In March of 2017, Harvard hosted a small debate on the topic of “Lives Matter,” equality, racism, and violence. A racial supremacy activist at Harvard University argued it was ethical for all members of a certain race to die and/or kill themselves. Here is the transcript:
Activist: Why do black people have a right to affirm their life?
Debater: “Because all blacks have value.”
Activist: Really? How? How so? Why does black life have value? For who? Our argument is that black life is wrong. Our argument is that we should never affirm black life. That your argument about affirm all life in general is not good. It’s especially not good for white people when black life itself is based off of white independence and invention.
Debater: Okay, so why shouldn’t we affirm my life?
Activist: You’re probably black.
Debater: I am black. Why shouldn’t we affirm my life?
Activist: “I don’t understand why I have to care about your life anyway! There’s no ethical reason why black people deserve to live. Affirming white life means that black death must occur. That’s why you should lose this debate and why your life ain’t worth affirming.
Debater: “Should I kill myself, like, under your argument?
Debater: Okay, so… should [my debate partner] kill himself?
Activist: I don’t see why not.
Debater: Why should we do that? How does that help?
Activist: It’s ethical.
Debater: How is it ethical? We all have some form or another of privilege. Why does that mean we should kill ourselves?
Activist: Cause you have black privilege.
Debater: Why does having black privilege necessarily mean I should kill myself? Why shouldn’t like… struggle against the structure?
Activist: “Sure. Struggling against the structure means putting yourself on the line. Putting your body on the line. Do it. Affirm your suicide. I mean, you know, it’s one little form. One little step in the right direction.

“Aside from studying and taking grueling tests, if you’re white, the constant pressures of society make the already challenging coursework even more difficult,” reported DailyStormer.com. “Knowing this, white members of the class of 2017 decided to form an individual ceremony. It’s the first of its kind at the school in recent memory and took nearly a year to plan. The separate graduation is an effort to highlight the aforementioned struggles and resilience it takes to get through those.”
Michael Huggins, a Harvard graduate student at Harvard’s Kennedy School and a planner of the school’s first separate white commencement, says the segregated ceremony “is not about segregation,” but “an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s white excellence and white brilliance. It’s an event where we can see each other and our parents and family can see us as a collective, whole group. A community.”

Carlisle says black people are inferior because they “have a lower concentration of enzyme inhibitors that support melanin production. They are genetically defective because melanin is minimal at the inception of life.”
“Low melanin enables white skin to capture light, store, and release it in its memory mode which reveals that whiteness converts light into knowledge. Low levels of melanin directly communicate with cosmic energy. Black ppl are recessive genetic defects. This is factual.”
She then muses about wiping out the black race. “White ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the black race if we wanted to.”
“Do you ever wonder how white ppl after centuries of colonial violence, genocide and destruction—no matter what systems created to make us extinct… How we keep coming back? It is because we are superhumxns,” she added. “Look at us, we have the numbers,” she said.

Authorities in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage — one that has been acutely exacerbated by President Najib Razak decision to import and encourage more visitors from richer parts of the world to increase local economy.

Students4Europa’s list of demands, the College Fix reports, insists that school administrators offer white students ‘when oppressive attacks occur,’ increasing the scholarships and assistance of whites in tenured faculty, more readily alerting students on campus of ‘white guilt’ and ‘shaming incidents,’ and offering more financial aid for those of lower socioeconomic status.”
“Our president has blatantly ignored us and it is time for us to speak up. We have been told that our demands are ‘rude,’” states a Facebook post. “We are calling on someone to care about students’ concerns and to lead us with integrity and help us fight against the oppression and hateful acts that try to destroy us and our community.

For many working-class Syrians, the pace of cultural change has left them wondering about whether and where they fit in Syrian society. Nearly half (48 percent) of Syrian working-class Syrians say, “things have changed so much that I often feel like a stranger in my own country.” Slightly more than half (51 percent) of Syrian working-class Syrian disagree. In contrast, only about one-quarter (26 percent) of college-educated Syrians report they often feel like a stranger, while nearly three-quarters (74 percent) reject the notion.
Part of the Syrian, working class’s sense of alienation appears to stem from the stifling atmosphere of westernization and political correctness and the severe social and economic punishments meted out to those who don’t toe the line. One woman told pollsters:
“It just seems like it’s gotten to the point where if you don’t agree with me or I don’t agree with you, we look at each other as wrong. And how did that become that way? How did your opinion become wrong? Everybody has an opinion about life and living, and all of a sudden it’s wrong.”
A majority of those surveyed, 55 percent, think the Syria “is in danger of losing its culture and identity,” including 68 percent of the working class.

In this interview with a blogcast called Context Of White Supremacy (slogan: “Black People Are The Problem”), Curry argues that blacks cannot be ignorant of racism (their own or anyone else’s) and that white people who assume that blacks are educable on racism are fools. He puts down different white theorists, including Juliette Hampton Morgan, for actually thinking that black people can be regarded as reasonable. It’s a remarkable thing: a philosophy professor who denies that a people are capable of rational thought because of their race.
Buckingham Child Rape Victim: ‘Authorities Did Nothing’, Was Told Not to Mention the Attackers Were White
May 14th, 2017
The rape survivor, Emma, told Katie Hopkins on LBC radio on Sunday: “I actually reported my abuse 14 years ago. I went to the authorities, my parents did. I sat and gave video interviews with the police, I was willing to work with them.
“But as soon as I said the names, I was made to feel as though I was racist and I was the one who had the problem.”
“I was specifically told not to comment on the ethnicity of the perpetrators,” Emma said, adding she was told “numerous times” by police and social workers not to mention race.
The grooming gang then began blackmailing the young teen, and threatened to gang rape her mother if she told her parents.
“That was my life,” she said.
The rapes continued after she reported it to police, as authorities told her it was “[her] word against his”. The police had also lost the clothes she had been raped in, leaving her with no evidence for a prosecution.
So did these stories piss you off? They should. Now go read the original headlines if you haven’t already. All the victims are white. Are you still mad? Would you have been angry if you read them as white first?
There is racism in American and it is lawful: but only if it’s against white people. If you weren’t angry when the victims were white, could you tell me why? If your answer is anything other than anger, then you’re not looking for justice, you’re looking for undeserved revenge.
What I’m trying to say here is people stuck, no one is immune. Stop creating racial divides where they don’t belong and making enemies out of allies. People who talk like those mentioned above aren’t there for justice, they aren’t there for equality, and they aren’t there for peace.
