MADISON, Wis. – “White Privilege” theorists aren’t content with just indoctrinating high school students. Their agenda is to start earlier than that. Four- and five-year-olds are much more impressionable than a skeptical teenager.

That’s why there was a session at the 2014 White Privilege Conference – held in Madison, Wisconsin in late March – titled, “Examining White Privilege and Building Foundations for Social Justice Thinking in the Elementary Classroom.” The session was led by two teachers, Rosemary Colt and Diana Reeves.

“But what we’re hoping to be able to convince you is possible is to take the (inaudible) sequences, which you are directed to be using, and to find within them opportunities to begin to insert social justice, anti-racist information for even little kids to understand,” Reeves said.

The teachers posted examples of their lessons for attendees to consider.

One lesson dealt with the U.S. Constitution.

“Does it work equally well for everyone?” the worksheet asks.

“No,” one child wrote, “because some people have different beliefs.”

“What does it mean to be privileged,” another question asks.

“If you are privileged you are white,” another child answered.

The teachers also played a video they produced with their students, where they interviewed them about their perceptions of race and privilege. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect is how the teachers guide the students to the desired answers. (No wonder they have to target unassuming children.)

“Do you remember that word that I used when we were talking about our previous role play, where it’s sometimes hard, if you are this, to think about people who may not be so. It started with a P –pri…”

“Pretending!” one child exclaims.

“No, pretending is what we’re doing,” the teacher responds.

“Sometimes you have a lot, and you’re not even aware of how much you have. And it’s sometimes called privilege,” the teacher says in the video.

So “privilege” refers to how much stuff people have? Only White people have lots of stuff and therefore privilege?

“Do you remember that word, privilege?” the teacher asked the children. “If you have privileges, it’s sometimes difficult to even think about people who might not have privileges.”

The teachers’ video then features 8-year-old students sounding off on what they’ve been taught by their activist teachers.

“White privilege is when people that are white get an advantage to the people who are people of color,” one child said.

“So if there was like a job, and a person of color was applying, and a white person was applying, and the owner was a white person, they might pick the white person just because of the person’s color, even if the black person was better,” the student says.

“White privilege is something that white people have, meaning they have an advantage in a lot of things and they can get a job more easily,” another child says in the teachers’ video presentation.

“Many people say, ‘Oh, the U.S. is improving in these areas.’ Is it really? Because those were the foundations put in the first place,” a student told our investigator. “And the foundation was systematic because we’re still following the Constitution today.”

At the end of the conference, attendees had a chance to sound off before the audience.

“I’m really happy to be here. I feel like I’ve learned a lot. I feel like I’ve had this space where I can be weak and vulnerable and I don’t have to lie about that,” one student told the audience from the main staging.

“I can talk about how the racism inside me, I feel like I’m going to go home and tell my parents that I’m a racist and I’m not proud of that but I’m proud that I can say that,” he said.

At that moment, the assembled group of educators and activists applauded their latest convert.

Coming tomorrow: contradictions and hypocrisy amongst the anti-capitalist activists.

Another Trayvon! Just Kidding, This Crime Doesn’t Fit The Narrative Frame

"The biggest crime in the U.S. criminal justice system is that it is a race-based institution where African-Americans are directly targeted and punished in a much more aggressive way than white people." -Bill Quigley “The biggest crime in the U.S. criminal justice system is that it is a race-based institution where African-Americans are directly targeted and punished in a much more aggressive way than white people.” –Bill Quigley

Trayvon Martin was an innocent, urban youth of promise who planned to go to college, escape the hood, write poetry in the same style as Langston Hughes, make documentary films, and probably even donate to Oxfam occasionally. He certainly wasn’t representative of the obvious-to-everyone but still a mystery to the mainstream media that young black men commit an unbelievably disproportionate amount of crime in the country.

For the thoughtcrime of thinking that probable-cat burglar Trayvon might be a cat burglar, George Zimmerman was almost convicted of murder. The entire media infrastructure and elites came out to villainize Martin. No doubt many pro-Trayvon movies are in production.

And so when, in Madison, Wisconsin, a young couple was awoken to four burglars ransacking their home, threatening to kill them, and then viciously raping the wife, you would think that, in context, it would get noticed by the mainstream media.

Oh did I mention the wife was six months pregnant and pleading for her baby’s life?

In supposedly racist America, you can’t even drive around town without being pulled over for “Driving while Black” and yet, stories like this seem to be missed by the racist white overlords running our media industry.

Surely they haven’t missed other stories like this, like those of the Wichita horror or the Channon Christian and Andrew Newsom murders. David Berkowitz killed six people and from that there have been four movies and three songs. How many times do we even hear about these kind of crimes?

Google News reports just 15 mentions of this crime in the media. There are 9,450 current news stories about Travyon Martin. This is despite the fact that Travyon Martin was shot while beating George Zimmerman nearly two years prior to this crime happening.

The most charitable interpretation of the absence of liberal outrage here, even from supposedly pro-woman groups, is that it’s just manufactured outrage in order to achieve a political end. Trayvon was a convenient media framing and so they jump at the opportunity to trot out the tired cliche of racist whites driving trucks gunning down young black men. But a slightly less charitable interpretation is that they enjoy and encourage this kind of behavior, that they feel as though these are morally justified rapes and attempted murders because the victims are from the undesirable class.

Black entertainers rap about killing whites. Leaders proclaim to kill whites. Even white liberals talk about and strategize how to kill white babies.

But white liberals repeat ad nauseum that the criminal justice system is unfixably racist. Bill Quigley, a Louisiana law professor, says, writ large, that “The criminal justice system, from start to finish, is seriously racist.” Yale Professor Vesla Weaver says we live in a “racial democracy” where only whites get to vote because they’re the ones who aren’t felons. This is the quality of intellectual honesty where they avoid any chance that the individuals convicted of crimes might actually be guilty.

Yet, it’s “racist” to talk about such things, to even acknowledge that this is the underlying mindset of a shockingly surprising amount of the left: whatever is bad for whites is good for the left. Whatever hurts white people as a group helps the organized left.

If the progressive left will justify coercive government policies to benefit one group at the expense of another, why not rejoice when those groups fight with one another and the undesirable group suffers as a result? When you operate a healthcare system that doesn’t care about individual wrongs, why would you care about one crime in one place from the undesirable group.

This type of crime cover-up by the media is nothing new, and will no doubt only continue to get worse. Hence why you’ve probably never heard of Mona Nelson. The media isn’t hiding their race agenda now when reporting the news. It’s no longer all the facts, it’s screened now to fit their particular agenda.

ZZ Ward: Put the Pretensions Down

zz-ward

ZZ Ward is an up-and-comer (here’s her single “Put the Gun Down“) who is showing up around the glitterati as a musician to admire. Yet she’s the tired and worn-out trope that’s constantly shoveled down the ears of consumers. The homely white girl who tries too hard to be a 1920’s New Orleans Ella Fitzgerald, it’s a trashier version of Adele with a fifth the talent.

Unsurprisingly the New York Times noted “Her energy evokes Tina Turner’s, her chops Aretha Franklin’s and her soul Etta James’s” which is really just code for “she’s singing in a black style as a white woman, but we’re going to give her a pass because she’s a leftist.” For her part Ward claims she’s synthesizing blue and hip-hop, which no doubt means that she’ll be interviewed weekly on NPR for the next decade. Whereas other musicians who don’t successfully thread the appropriate political needles are accused of appropriating black music, stealing styles or other claims against authenticity, Ward gets a free pass to do black music so selfishly.

“I was just really attracted to very strong female voices, and the sincerity of the blues, and then I got into hip hop through my older brother, he was listening to Nas and Jay-Z, I loved hip hop beats, and I loved their stories about just getting out of where they were from and getting more, even though I was, I grew up in Oregon, I wasn’t in the city at all, but I could relate to what they were saying. link

Can you imagine if someone from the GOP talked about listening to Jay-Z and that they now understood black culture? That now they understood inner-city problems? Yet when the left talks about black culture, they always get a pass, and even when blacks on the right talk about their own culture, they’re ridiculed.
