Insidious and Pervasive: Anti-white Racism

Shift your outlook and in a picosecond, you’ll realize that there are legions of others who will treat you fairly, based on your behavior, aptitude, attitude, and aspirations.

I attended a once-a-month program for eight years, led by an excellent host who was well-versed in various aspects of human potential. We would meet for 90 minutes with the first 10 minutes devoted to introductions of those in attendance, followed by a 20 to 25 minute online video presented by some luminary in the field of self-help. 

In the remaining time, the subsequent class discussion often focused on some aspect of standing up for yourself, increasing your awareness, being good to yourself, getting along better with other people, overcoming a bad habit, being more supportive of others, and so on.

Unfairly Accused

I received many benefits from attending the sessions and took notes rather prodigiously. By the next day, I often would send my notes to the instructor, and she felt that they would benefit the whole class so she posted them online.

Something started to change within the class as the summer of 2020 unfolded, and the ‘social justice’ movement heightened. I mentioned that I was from Bloomfield, CT and that we had been designated an All-American City. While the city and the school system wasn’t perfect, relations between races and ethnic groups were as good as I’ve ever seen. 

Then, as a follow-up to that monthly session, I sent high school photos to the group leader, who happened to be African-American, to show that not every town was like what some social justice warriors would like to portray. We had reasonably harmonious relations in Bloomfield.

She refuted the contention. She said that it was all a facade and that I was unaware. She maintained that the minority students were doing their best to get along and go along. She declared that, as a white man, I didn’t understand the nuances, and didn’t understand how I was contributing to the problem. She then said that, “Silence is violence.”

Not Buying It

I do not accept that by virtue of being a Caucasian male, that I was inherently racist, or had missed the boat in terms of what other races or ethnicities were experiencing. In fact, I would have none of it. I have not knowingly discriminated against anybody: 

Like anyone does, I first check for cues and clues in terms of how people carry themselves, how they act, and how they communicate. I feel that each person is an individual, and that behavior is what speaks loudest.

Ruminating on the larger issue, the charge that ‘progressives’ in contemporary America are trying to foist upon all Caucasians, I now understand that they’re practicing anti-white racism. 

Many Leftists claim that Caucasians, as a result of being born, and by virtue of their skin color, are inherent racists. You are contributing to a social structure in which systemic racism occurs, and there is no way for you to heal yourself. You need to be part of their movement. You need to atone, en masse.

I have friends who feel the same as I do about what has transpired during the last 10 months. Each of us will have none of this. I do not accept that I am inherently racist, or that my race inherently practices systemic racism.

Stereotyping is Stereotyping

It’s no surprise, with the mainstream media machine pumping out non-stop blather about “critical race theory” and “microaggressions,” that some people discern racism everywhere. In any case, when you lump multi-millions of people into the same category, and claim that each of them acts in a certain way towards others, you are stereotyping on a grand scale. 

Blaming an entire race, or when any group is blaming any other group en masse, is grossly unfair. It requires not paying attention to individuals or to their behaviors, attitudes, aspirations, and activities. If you find yourself doing this, stop, because you’re dead wrong. 

You’re not helping yourself, you’re not helping your fellow men and women, and you’re not helping society. Bigotry exists on both sides of the aisle, left and right, and among all races and ethnicities, and among people everywhere. 

If you feel that your group is special because you’ve suffered ‘the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,’ get over it. There’s more opportunity before you than there has ever been on Earth. 

You can make a living right from your computer, without leaving your house. You can start a business more easily than ever before. Scholarships and educational opportunities abound.

Get A Move On

Start planning, stop yapping. Stop complaining, and start achieving. Sure, you might run into pockets of bigotry, and feel down a bit. Shift your view and start doing. In the end, for most people most of the time, the only thing holding them back is themselves. They can pretend otherwise, which leads to nowhere. 

Shift your outlook and in a picosecond, you’ll realize that there are legions of others who will treat you fairly, based on your behavior, aptitude, attitude, and aspirations.

Biden Publicly Urged to Take Cognitive Test by Former White House Doc and Over a Dozen Lawmakers

This is getting serious.

Published

Joe Biden is no spring chicken, that’s a fact, and there have been a great many concerns about the septuagenarian’s health in recent weeks. While Biden does appear to be, (mostly), physically fit, it is his mental health that has long been in question.  He’s a gaffe machine, of course, and the President himself doesn’t seem to hide from that reality much. But there are now some well-educated folks close to the situation who are sounding the alarm about his memory, and doing so very publicly. Dr. Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician, called on President Biden to immediately undergo a cognitive test so the commander-in-chief can prove to the American public sound mental capabilities. “We can’t sit on this any longer,” Jackson told “Hannity” Thursday night, citing Biden’s “embarrassing” performance overseas this week with world leaders. “He’s not physically or cognitively fit to be our president right now,” Jackson added. And it’s not just Jackson. The freshman Texas congressman and 13 of his GOP colleagues sent a letter to Biden Thursday expressing “concern” with his cognitive state and cited several examples of potential memory lapses, including apparently forgetting the name of his Defense Secretary, telling an Amtrak story with a timeline that didn’t add up and seemingly blanking on the often-quoted first line of the Declaration of Independence. “Unfortunately, your mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past 18 months,” Jackson and the GOP reps wrote in a letter to Biden, the White House physician and Dr. Anthony Fauci. The left will likely write this off as a stunt, but they do so at their own peril.

Springsteen Disallows Fans Who’ve Had Certain COVID-19 Vaccines

Soon we’ll be queuing up by batch numbers…

As the world races to reopen, there are some longstanding concerns that those who’ve chosen not to be vaccinated could wind end living their lives as second-class citizens. We’re already seeing a number of major industries treat Americans differently based on their choices in regard to bodily sovereignty.  Baseball parks are talking about having unvaccinated “sections”, for instance, and the cruise industry is already looking to break the law in Florida by requiring proof of inoculation to ride. Now things are getting even more segregated and specific, as Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show will not allow guests who’ve had a specific brand of COVID-19 vaccine. Rabid rock fans looking to celebrate a return to normalcy by taking in Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway show later this month will be on the outside looking in if they’ve received the AstraZeneca vaccine, which hasn’t yet been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. The show at the St. James Theatre, set to run June 26 through Sept. 4, has a lengthy Q&A page detailing the vaccination protocols in place — including a mandate that all guests must be fully vaccinated with an FDA-approved shot to get in. Guests will meet that criteria if they’ve received a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNtech or Moderna vaccine at least 14 days earlier, or that same span with a Johnson & Johnson jab prior to the Boss’s latest Broadway run. “At the direction of New York State, Springsteen on Broadway and the St. James Theatre will only be accepting proof of FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson),” the website reads. There is but one exception: The lone exceptions to the vaccine policy will be for children under the age of 16 who have had a negative antigen COVID-19 screening six hours prior to the show, or…
