Child Rapist Guest Speaker At College’s “Whiteness” Event

vlcsnap-2016-06-30-18h32m27s160During “whiteness history month” this past April at Portland Community College, they featured an event called “Students Of Color Speak Out”. It was sort of like an open mic session for students of color to talk about some of their experiences. Most of the students had some legitimate and heart felt things to say.

But when it came time for the guest PCC alumni speakers, one Tony Funchess rose up and took to the mic. He is now a student at Portland State University, after attending PCC for two years.

Mr. Funchess has been the subject of past stories, namely the one where he was running for Portland State University student body president and was discovered to be a two time child rapist.

That story gained traction in several local news outlets, and his past became well known.

But that didn’t stop PCC from inviting him to rant about oppression:

It’s interesting to note that the SJWs in Portland coddle this guy, and welcome him into their ranks, knowing full well that he is a sex offender. One can’t help but wonder how they would react if he were white.

“White Woman Of Color” Feels Guilty For Not Being Oppressed

vlcsnap-2016-06-29-15h49m42s46The SJWs appear to have crossed over into new territory. This half Croatian, half Lebanese college student gives a speech about how she is a “white woman of color”, and how she is not judged or profiled like other students who wear hijabs. She feels guilty that she is seen as “an innocent doe eyed white girl… I feel a tremendous amount of guilt for not receiving the same treatment that my fellow Arabs are given. And it hurts me, knowing that I cannot feel the same pain that my people possess”

So, is she oppressed because she’s not being oppressed? Do others need to oppress her to relieve her of this guilt? Is it now racist to NOT oppress people? This girl to seems to have the best of both worlds, as she can flaunt “white privilege” when she needs to or she can be an oppressed woman color when that card needs to be played.

This was part of a presentation titled “The White Elephant in the Newsroom: The National News Narrative and the Color of Terrorism” during Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month” in April.

Earlier in the event, they studied the profiles of mass shooters and how the media frames them, and related it to race. Apparently half black is considered white when the person is question is a criminal, because the presenters, Teela Foxworth and Imran Haider, claim that Umpqua Community College shooter Christopher Harper-Mercer is white, even though he is bi-racial.

By that logic, President Obama is just another old, rich white guy, Stephen Curry won the MVP because of his “white privilege” that oppressed LeBron James and Kevin Durant, and Russell Wilson is just another white quarterback.

Play The “WhiteNESS & Social Justice Interactive”!

vlcsnap-2016-06-19-15h55m35s237Ever wanted to play a rousing game of “racial justice dominoes”? Or take the “white privilege survey”? Well now you can! Thanks to this interactive social justice display at Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month”, presented by PCC staffer Jeff Laff, manager of something called “YES To College”. This display also features large banners of white shaming rhetoric, which include mocking work ethic, self reliance, desire to succeed, being punctual (?), mocking those who want to be polite, planning ahead, and other things that lead to one being successful life. Apparently these things are bad and should be avoided. Also featured is the diversity wheel, the “iceberg concept of culture”, and saying that “white privilege, specifically, is an institutional set of unearned benefits granted to white people”. You can also play the memory game, where you get to match the definitions of whitey’s evilness to buzz words like “worship of the written word”, “objectivity”, and “sense of urgency”. Apparently it is bad to have a sense of urgency, and better to just be lazy and late.

If you dare get offended by any of this, that is your “white fragility” showing, and your defensiveness is your weakness.

Inside A “Critical Race Theory” Workshop

vlcsnap-2016-06-01-17h40m37s21Ever wonder what goes on at a “critical race theory” workshop?

For those unfamiliar with the term, “critical race theory” (CRT) is a modern academic concept that talks about how whitey is evil and how all the “people of color” are being harmed by white people, a society of systemic racism, and the evils of capitalism and the oppression that accompanies it.

The sociology page on about.com describes critical theory as:

Critical theory emerged out of the Marxist tradition and was developed by social scientists and philosophers in Germany during the mid-twentieth century. It is a type of theory that aims to critique society, social structures, and systems of power, and in doing so, to foster egalitarian social change.

Critical theory as it is known today can be traced to Marx’s critique of economy and society put forth in his many works. It is inspired greatly by Marx’s theoretical formulation of the relationship between economic base and ideological superstructure, and tends to focus on how power and domination operate, in particular, in the realm of the superstructure.

Over the years the goals and tenets of critical theory have been adopted by many social scientists and philosophers who have come after the Frankfurt School. We can recognize critical theory today in many feminist theories and feminist approaches to conducting social science, in critical race theory, cultural theory, in gender and queer theory, and in media theory and media studies.

Now just apply to the modern day version of racism, which is basically “EVERYTHING’S RACIST! IT’S ALL WHITEY’S FAULT!” and you have contemporary CRT. Not only is this being taught in colleges, but high schools and even elementary schools are now “teaching” CRT to young children.

As part of Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month” in April, a CRT workshop was held for instructors to compare notes, ideas, and syllabi. The workshop was hosted by PCC art and law instructor Ann Su. What follows is a series of videos from that workshop.

First off, a brief description of CRT. Note the part about “neo-marxist critical legal studies” and the “critique of capitalism”.

One of the participants, Laura Horani, who evidently teaches ESOL (English for Speakers Of Other Languages), explains how it’s culturally insensitive to hold eye contact, and how she accidentally offended her class by reading a sentence regarding such. First smiling became racist, now making eye contact is racist, too.

Horani is also featured in a different story, mocking people who use the phrase “I’m for one race, the human race”.

Su goes on to try to tie “social construction of knowledge” into CRT, and says “Who’s been writing all the text books? From what perspective? The perspective that’s been represented has been the mythic, white male, ya know. At least in this country, in Eurocentric underpinnings. White, male, gen-tried, like, money, property, land owners, all those things. Even though on its face, it looks neutral, just like our laws look neutral, embedded in that is a presumption of experience. You know, culturally, historically. So understand that that can feel marginalizing to people that have not been part of that.”

Back on the ESOL track, they talk about how “accent reduction” is “cultural genocide”. Horani explains “There’s no neutral with CRT. No discipline is neutral or safe from being infused with racism… I think a lot of instructors get into the field [of ESOL] to help students assimilate. And then that is so complicated, right, because, and people that talk about accent reduction, I’m like ‘cultural genocide! stop it!’… I don’t tell my students anymore that ‘learn English and you can do anything in the U.S.’ cause, honestly, that’s just not true”

One of the participants later says “There’s this myth of America as being the place where everyone has an opportunity, the streets are paved with gold kind of thing,” and another reaffirms that by saying “That myth of meritocracy”. They all start laughing over the concept of “meritocracy”, then they immediately contradict themselves by saying that, in some ways, it’s true for immigrants from countries with caste systems that the U.S. is land of opportunity for them.

Other highlights include the college instructors praising students who plagiarize art; Saying that CRT should “be taught to people when they’re coming, as part of being integrated, because the race thing is so confusing, for people coming into this culture, because it’s like, what we say is going on and what they see is going on are two completely different things”; How to incorporate CRT into arts: “All the different aspects of identity” as it relates to CRT and art; And pondering how people know a square is a square;

Smiling Is Now Racist, Because “White Fragility”

vlcsnap-2016-05-26-02h29m21s74At one of the many recent “whiteness history month” events at Portland Community College, Women’s Resource Center director Brad Fortier and instructor of education Tanya Mead lead a discussion entitled “It’s Not My Fault”, which centered around a notion of “white fragility” and microaggressions that white people, supposedly, do all the the time that are racist.

The event started off with Mead going on about how she “struggles with white fragility”.

They then go on to define “whiteness”. “Privilege” answers one student. Another says “Lack of knowledge of other people going with you because of the privilege that you have every day, so, things that you don’t see because of it, and you don’t realize (???) some people don’t exist, even though they do”. Yet another says “It’s a classification that has been created, especially by western Europeans, to sort of create discrete groups to justify the superiority of one group, obviously, shockingly their own, over people that were not viewed the same to help justify and also enforce and maintain these sort of very disproportionate and unfair power balances within the context of otherwise much more difficult and nuanced interactions so they can (???) them quickly and determine who is part of ‘us’ and who is not.” Mead goes on to praise Professor James Harrison, who is best known for his presentation on imagining a world without whiteness. “When I think of whiteness, I think of people, it’s the unnamed, unseen, un-talked about things. It’s the standard. It’s the normal. You’ve got people and ‘people of color’, and that’s what establishes whiteness, just this idea. And I never hear anyone say ‘I’m just African American’, I always hear ‘I’m just white’. And it’s that un-examined, un-self reflective idea ‘well I’m just a person, y’all are marked, because you’re not white’. So it’s an undefined, unspoken thing” says another student.

They continue on to ponder if they are racist for crossing the street the wrong way, or when they smile at people of color. “Am I doing the ‘white guy smile’?” asks one of the students.

After prejudging white people and making the assumption that they all live in the suburbs with white picket fences, Mead goes on to explain how “white people in North America live in an environment:
A) that protects and insulates them from race based stress
B) builds white expectations for racial comfort
C) lower the ability to tolerate racial stress.
She goes on to use Robin DiAngelo’s definition of “white fragility”. She then cites Tim Wise and explains the “typical white responses” to this supposed “fragility, of which the emotions include anger, fear and guilt, while the behaviors are argumentation, silence, tears, and leaving the stress-inducing situation.

Somehow “these behaviors function to reinstate the white racial equilibrium”.

Mead and Fortier go on to explaine the Helms Model Of White Identity Development.

It’s basically the 6 step process of going from not being racist, realizing you’re racist because you’re white and that makes you racist, then guilting yourself into making meaningless gestures to absolve yourself of this racist guilt, even though, in the end, whitey is still racist, regardless of anything.

After a young cuck says “I’ve thought about this a lot, why people are so defensive, and why this, like, concept is so fragile. I feel like it comes from a place of, like, people don’t want to accept that it’s real, or that there are these problems that we have because that would also mean accepting the fact that they benefit from them?” another person exclaims “I think part of it has to do also with being white, you don’t want to be part of the problem, even as active as you may be, like, it’s that you just have to admit that you’re part of the problem, because there’s stuff that you are taught through society and your parents without even being like ‘outright racist’.

They also discussed “triggers” for whites, which, sadly, didn’t include any references to things like “double action” or “single stage”

Nutjob Students Protest Armed Campus Police At PSU

vlcsnap-2016-05-21-02h27m49s144The normal cast of characters were out in force on May 10th, as the students at Portland State University staged a walk-out to protest the arming of campus security.

It started off at the steps of the library, where they chanted “WE WANT REAL DIVERSITY NOT A POLICE STATE UNIVERSITY”. A small contingent from the Students For Trump group showed up, one holding a sign that read “Thug Lives Don’t Matter”, for which he was promptly attacked for by one of the members of Rose City Antifa, complete with an ACAB shirt (All Cops Are Bastards).

The highlight of the protest centered around a “die-in”, where the students stormed the street out front of the university president and administrator building, laying down in the middle of the road to symbolize being shot by the new campus police. This had traffic backed up for several blocks, including buses and street cars. “A lot of us who are abused, so to say, we’re gunna be laying down in the street, outside so Wim can see us, so he knows what he’s, what the board of trustees does to us, which is it kills us” one of them explained before the demo.

But before they ended up there, they took turns at the megaphone in different areas. At the library, one of them shouts that “The police are notorious for mishandling sexual assault cases, we all know that. They are often also rapists themselves”. Portland mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone “We need to decouple from I.C.E., we need to not partner with federal immigration and we need to not partner with the joint taksforce on terrorism. If I am your next mayor, I’ll active decouple form these racist activities as well.”

One student is wearing a shirt with the red communist start on it, with the hammer and sickle inside the star, while a 3rd wave RadFem sports a patch that reads “dead men don’t catall”. Some of the signs read “Education is a right, not just for the rich & white” and “More guns = More violence”. The crowd chanted things like “DISARM PSU!” and the usual “BLACK LIVES MATTER”. Somehow, one student manages to intersect this protest by shouting pro Palestine things through the megaphone, while another says that “We are not here to merely meet your diveristy and inclusion rhetoric… Black lives matter is not a request. We’re not asking for your permission. We are done with politietely suggesting”.

Still another student claims that “Police are a tool of capitalism, to control people and to stay where they are, staying in slavery, staying in poverty wages, staying in riciulcous working condidtions”, while another shouts “We are fighting against racism, we are fighting against capitalism, and we are fighting against patricarchy… The system is made for the white male!”

One student, who looks like he just stumbled out of 1968, shouts “under capitalism, the main function of police is to break up srikes, unionization, and any other forms of visible protest against the unfair policies of the ruling class!” before going on a rant about multiculturalism, ending by saying that “All multiculturalism has done is bring the anti capitalist critique of this university to a politics of recogniition!”

Astute readers of Progressives Today will recognize this Somali Muslim female from a prior video, where the complained that Portland was too white and she was afraid that whitey would gun her down. She’s back to white about more of the same, saying “I’m a senior at Portland State University. I’ve been here for three years, some of the worst (laughs in Islam) three years of my life… So we all know, like, students of color, they’re not advocated for, uhmm, me and a lot of students of color, we have been trying to advocate for ourselves, and it’s a pity that we have to do so. So, like, the instructors don’t know how to teach us. There is a white supremacy group, multiple groups. mobilizing, putting hate all over the (laughs again in Islam) the campus, uhmm basically putting anti, uhh, Islamophobia stuff, anti black stuff, and who knows what they’ll do next. I mean, it’s not really a safe campus if you’re a person with like, a headscarf and you’re black. So a lot of Muslim students have not been advocated for. I mean, we have to pray in a dingy basement. That’s the only place we have to be a Muslim on this campus. So Muslim students, girls, have been, uhmm, called terrorists, Muslim students have been called terrorists, their hijabs have been pulled off, black students have been called the n word, we have a lot of inequitable stuff going on on this campus, yet the administration is not doing anything to stop it.”

Here’s the full speech from the kid who claims that police are a “tool of capitalism”, complete with someone cheering him on in the beginning by shouting “DOWN WITH CAPITALISM!” “Police were formed as a shadow to suppress slaves. They were used to control slaves in the south, and the north they were used to control labor rights. The police are a tool of capitalism to control people and to, stay where they are. Staying in slavery, staying in poverty wages, staying in ridiculous working conditions! Funding police, uhh, bureaus with, like, tons of, like, weaponry, militarized tanks, and in some cases, to keep black people poor. To keep control over black people.”

Well known Portland area communist and Palestine supporter Heidi Sipress also took to the megaphone, bashing Trump, G4S security systems, and capitalism, before going on about her love affair with Palestine.

All in all, it was a pretty typical day at Portland State University.

Angry Mestizo Librarian Goes Off On Whitey At College Event

vlcsnap-2016-04-29-09h52m31s245“Colonialism and Whiteness” was the name of the session, part of Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month” in April. This particular event was put on by PCC librarian Max Macias, and by the tone of his voice, he sure has one giant chip on his shoulder.

He starts off, like most of these “whiteness” events, trying define whiteness by saying “What is whiteness? Everybody seems to be having a problem with this idea. Whiteness is a concept that European people and culture are more important than anything or anyone else… This colonial system is created for and by Europeans for the benefit of Europeans. Everything was and is in relation to the European. This is a hallmark of the concept of whiteness. That everything is judged in relation to whiteness, and not something else.”

He goes on to bash Christians by saying “The racial hierarchy in combination with the destruction of these indigenous cultures by book burning, destroying cultural monuments, and using them to build churches. To build churches, right? That’s WHITENESS right there… As a matter of fact, when you look at a lot of these so called ‘illegal aliens’, they’re Indians. You can see in their faces. They have the right to migrate anywhere they want in their country. Not immigrate or emigrate, migrate. It’s their continent. How DARE somebody from somewhere else come and say that they don’t belong here, that WE don’t belong here, right?”

He also claims that Obama, Loretta Lynch, and Eric Holder “adhere to whiteness”.

And that’s part of a greater concept, that successful people of color are actually traitors! “I see people adhere to whiteness, that’s exemplified to me, in too many people of culture who achieve success, and they then distance themselves away from their color, and they cling to whiteness like it’s a lifesaver, and their ocean liner just sunk. cause they don’t want to fall back down into the darkness.”

Of course when the participant filming has an opportunity to ask Mr. Macias a question about borders and civilizations over the years, he gets chippy and continually interrupts the lady as she’s trying ask him her question. In fact, he doesn’t even bother to try to answer her question.

He concludes that “Whiteness is fluid. It changes. It’s not a thing I can point to and say ‘here it is, let’s look at it'”

 

 

 

 

Self Flagellating Whites Repent With Reparation Promises

Uhuru Reparations

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement recently held its national conference in Florida. According to their website, they describe themselves as “an organization of white people created by and working directly under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party which leads the Uhuru Movement. The Uhuru Movement is organizing and uniting Africans around the world as one people struggling to liberate Africa and African people everywhere.”

At the conference, one of their leaders, Gazi Kodzo talks with guilty white cucks about why they owe reparations. It’s almost like a Saturday Night Live skit. Kodzo, who, apparently, is male, starts off the video by talking about “White Jesus” and “well trained male Saxons”, and he (?) says to (asks?) the line-up “Wutchyonameis”, which one can only presume is this person’s unique way of ascertaining what the subject’s name is.

The first person starts off by saying they owe reparations because “every freedom that I have and I’ve taken for granted my entire life has been made possible by wealth that my ancestors stole”, before Kodzo continues down the line. Apparently their greeting is to say “uhuru” to one another.

The others say they “have benefited from the wealth that was stolen from you, as have all my ancestors, the ones who owned slaves and the ones who did not. The Jews, the white Jews in Hungary, the fake Jews… The fake white Jews and “all white people owe reparations” because “as a white person, I sit on a pedestal of colonialism and slavery that built, not only the wealth of this country, but the whole European world. Therefore, all white people owe reparations and we’re coming to get it!”… “If you don’t give it, we’re comin’ to take it!”

They reach the conclusion that all the white people owe this person reparations NOW, yet none of them are seen opening their wallets to give Kodzo any money.

Angry Feminists GO NUTS Over Cameraman At “Whiteness” Event

vlcsnap-2016-04-28-23h54m30s75“Whiteness & Feminism” was the title of the event, one of the many sessions that were part of Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month”. This particular event featured Portland State University instructors Roberta Hunte and Sally Eck.

The “whiteness” presentations are considered public events, take place in public college rooms, and are open to the public, often times joined by classes. In this instance, a “women’s studies” class taught by Kathy Casto was taking part in this event.

After introductions, Eck encourages participants to surround and block the cameraman, in an effort to intimidate him and get him to stop filming. The angry feminists go bonkers, blocking the view with papers and body fat. PCC “director of student life” Josh Peters McBride indicates that this is acceptable behavior by students.

After a minute or so, the cameraman leaves the room, and inquires with campus security as to the nature of what just happened. The Sgt. on duty, Terry Langly, confirms that such actions by students are, apparently, acceptable at PCC.

The cameraman returns with his camera on an extended monopod. One angry female (?) student decides to start filming him, while another storms out of the room, grabs a cardboard display board from the Autism awareness club, and uses it to block the camera, while standing on a rolling swivel chair.

Eventually the college admins are able to get the situation under control, after realizing they could be on shaky legal grounds if this persists.

Eck and Hunte had good reason for wanting the camera blocked. They obviously didn’t want their presentation to be seen by the sane world, as the entire event consisted of incomplete sentences filled with buzz words, catch phrases, and more utterances of “uhh”, “uhmm”, “and”, “so”, “right?” than you can you count. In fact, the entire session could have been condensed from 2 hours to 30 minutes if the “instructors” had the slightest idea of what they were talking about. Instead, it seemed like it was all just being made up as they went along. Let’s listen in!

They started off by trying to define “feminism”:

Listen to Hunte ramble on incoherently:

You’ve also got to challenge “colorblindness”, which used to be a concept pushed by the SJW’s back in the 80s and 90s, as a way of judging people by their character, skill, and achievements rather than by skin color. Apparently that is racist now, because it’s a way for white people to avoid having to hire people of color.

You are racist, even if you say you’re not, because racism is systemic and systematic, and you participate in that. You racist!

Also, you’re a white supremacist, by default, until you’re not.

According to the Portland State University website, Eck “is a fixed-term instructor in the Women’s Studies Department at Portland State University. Sally earned a B.S. in both Sociology and Women’s Studies, with an MS in Education. Currently her courses have included Girl power Capstone, Local Justice Capstone, Social Justice Education, Women’s Studies Inquiry, Gender and Education, and Spring Celebration. Sally has a personal commitment to issues surrounding Feminist Pedagogy, Oppression Theory, and feminist parenting.” She teaches such courses as “Feminism & Zines”, “Interruptions”, and “Gender & Education“.

Ironically, Hunte is an assistant professor, with a PhD in “Peace and Conflict Studies”. She teaches such courses as “Women of Color in the U.S.”, “Race/Class/Gender/Sexuality in the U.S.”, “Gender, Militarization, and Activism”, and “Global Feminisms”. Nice to see that “conflict resolution” sprung into action when she stood idly by while witnessing a conflict arise, thanks to her colleague.

“World Without Whiteness” Professor DOUBLES DOWN

vlcsnap-2016-04-27-17h07m35s185After making headlines earlier in the month for his “Imagine A World Without WHITENESS” presentation, Portland Community College history and humanities professor James Harrison defended his statements, while once again channeling John Lennon, and blaming the media for the outrage.

He compares his plight to the time when the media took Lennon’s quote of “We are more popular than Jesus” out of context, and calls the outlets who covered his last event “yellow journalism”, despite the fact that several uncut videos were posted, including the entire 38 minute speech.

After his diatribe, he went on to give his latest presentation, “How Some Human Beings Became White”, where he says that people of several different European nationalities were not considered “white” at first, until they separated themselves from black folks and integrated more with those of English and French decent, until they were eventually accepted as “white”, and thus, benefiting from their “whiteness”.

“If you are of Irish decent, or Italian decent, you’re not officially white. The Polish race? They weren’t white. Greeks were not white. Hungarians were not white. Slowly but slowly, they became white. So, that whole movement along the line of ‘what is white’ it’s not fixed at all. What it does is, it provides something, again, that you need to look up, something called ‘white privilege’; the privilege of having white skin. Which a lot of people say, ‘ehh, I don’t believe it’ but again, if you’ve never heard of it, there’s a tendency to doubt it, to dispute it, and say ‘that’s not true’. I encourage you, if you heard anything that I said that you doubt, you can ask me about it. There’s a new world coming. In fact, it’s already here”

“Once the Irish become accepted, then they don’t want other groups coming in. Those are now the barbarians. They were the barbarians, and now the outsiders are barbarians. And so the Irish become as prejudice as any other group. Now, at this point, I need to tell you when I’m using that, I am using a generalization, it does not mean that every single person of Irish decent, but just the group as a whole begins to move. And whether you like or participate in it, you benefit from that move”

And here’s his entire presentation, 37 minutes uncut:
