Do you know what critical race theory is and the push to implement it?


You mean the push to educate white Americans to understand how they have benefited from systematic racism, even though they themselves never owned slaves? Yep.



So we as white people Sookie in the modern day should suffer for the crimes of our ancestors ?

Even though me personally and many others who's families did not technically migrate to the USA until the early 1900's after the abolishment of Slavery , meaning my family didn't even live in the America during Slavery but yet I should still pay for it.... simply because my skin is white ?


Your fam and mine alike, and same time period. Not sure why the ever-loving hell I'm supposed to grovel for # my family wasn't even here for -- they came decades later.

Mixed folks appear to be even more #ed over on this one. It's effectively telling them to be ashamed of half of themselves because you said so, while you play up and prey on the rest of their "approved" background. What a warped, screwed up mentality that is. I can't even feel sorry for people who think like that, it's willful and malicious stupidity all around. Nobody should apologize for, nor be ashamed of, their origins. People who try to drill that into people, especially into kids' heads, because they're a useless taint boil with nothing better going for them in life deserve drawn and quartered for stooping to it in the first place.

No. All we're talking about is about personally recognizing one's "white privilege".


White privilege means that as a white person, you are the norm. You are the standard against which everything and everyone else is measured. Your kind of hair is normal hair; the way you speak is the normal way to speak; your skin is "flesh-colored." Your clothing style is the correct style. Your values are the normal values.



White privilege (or white skin privilege) is the societal privilege that benefits white people over non-white people, particularly if they are otherwise under the same social, political, or economic circumstances.



White privilege is a set of advantages and/or immunities that white people benefit from on a daily basis beyond those common to all others. White privilege can exist without white people's conscious knowledge of its presence and it helps to maintain the racial hierarchy in this country.

I expect either crickets, a very lame excuse, or both on this one.

Probably both. Race baiters have no shame, or common sense.

What race is my friend's son-- you never did answer that question and it's because it exemplfies certain essential flaws in critical race theory.


Racial equality simply sees everyone as equal, regardless of appearance. It doesn't matter what race your friend's son is. He is an equal member of his family, regardless of the color of his skin or the geographical area his ancestors hail from.

Unfortunately, your friends adopted daughter will be treated differently than her siblings and cousins, in certain social situations, while being treated as an equal in her home.

I was made aware of my white privilege when I moved to Hawaii in the 1970's.

Racial equality seems to be but one aspect of critical race theory which is contradicted by other, more overarching ideas.

I like that concept though and have lived my life under that premise and hope to teach my kids the same.

That is an answer. In the 1970s in Hawaii white people were the minority. But they got the best jobs. There was a lot of racism in Hawaii during that time.

Tourists wanted white people to serve them their breakfast and tell them where to hike etc.. Brown people cleaned their rooms, worked in kitchens and cane fields. Hawaiians were expected to sing and dance, pound drums and juggle fire, and maybe teach your son to surf.

They had a holiday called "Kill Haole Day", where the locals would go out of their way to hurt white people. I still have a scar on my knee from an episode.

If you're wondering about racism in Africa, look no further than South Africa, Nelson Mandela and Apartheid.

This doesn't mesh well with your posts about white privilege etc. So should my friend's son have to reflect on and spend time studying about his white privilege? Should his dad? Is he the maker of microaggressions?


White privilege: Discussed by Lipsitz, Lee, Harris, McIntosh, and other CRT scholars, white privilege refers to the various social, political, and economic advantages white individuals experience in contrast to non-white citizens based on their racial membership. These advantages can include both obvious and subtle differences in access to power, social status, experiences of prejudice, educational opportunities, and much more. For CRT scholars, the notion of white privilege offers a way to discuss dominant culture’s tendency to normalize white individuals’ experiences and ignore the experiences of non-whites. Fields such as CRT and whiteness studies have focused explicitly on the concept of white privilege to understand how racism influences white people.
Microaggressions: Microaggressions refer to the seemingly minute, often unconscious, quotidian instances of prejudice that collectively contribute to racism and the subordination of racialized individuals by dominant culture. Peggy Davis discusses how legal discourse participates in and can counteract the effects of microaggressions.

Discriminating based on color, sex, sexual preference, is illegal.

As it should be.


Demanding apologies, mandating apologies based on color, sex, sexual preference, is racist also and should be illegal.

Critical Race Theory is racist, Marxist.

I'm sure it will become apparent to them when they see the disparaging treatment their sister/daughter is sure to experience, and every time someone appears uncomfortable or awkwardly surprised to find out they're all related.



Should his dad? Is he the maker of microaggressions?


I'm sure that your friend is fine man. But there are people who like to collect exotic things/people/animals. Madonna comes to my mind. I would classify that kind of behavior as microaggression. You may disagree.

Oh no.

You see, the Democrats are "repealing" equal opportunity and affirmative action amendments so that they CAN legally discriminate against whoever their target is.

No kidding.

California Proposition 16, Repeal Proposition 209 Affirmative Action Amendment (2020)

ballotpedia.org...(2020)



A "yes" vote supports this constitutional amendment to repeal Proposition 209 (1996), which stated that the government and public institutions cannot discriminate against or grant preferential treatment to persons on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in public employment, public education, and public contracting.

A "no" vote opposes this constitutional amendment, thereby keeping Proposition 209 (1996), which stated that the government and public institutions cannot discriminate against or grant preferential treatment to persons on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in public employment, public education, and public contracting.



Democrats in Sacramento try again to repeal Prop. 209.


www.manhattan-institute.org...


In 2014 Democrats in Sacramento moved to overturn Proposition 209, but the effort was blocked by Asian-American Democrats and activists who balked at returning to a process where their children could legally be discriminated against for having the nerve to excel in school.

Now progressive lawmakers are at it again. A bill that would put a repeal of Proposition 209 on the ballot in the fall was introduced in March and is working its way through the committee process. Given that the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom, is a liberal Democrat whose party holds supermajorities in both the state Assembly and Senate, passage isn’t out of the question.

Voters would then decide Proposition 209’s fate via a ballot measure in November.
