No way, Miss, you’re not white!

076Joan Evans,
Lawrencevillve, GA.

And I am 100% white. But (far too many of) my students associate “white” with oppression and bigotry. When they tell me I’m not white, they are trying to tell me I’m not a racist. Telling me I’m not white is a compliment. Pretty damning, huh?

Keep the conversation going - comment and discuss with your thoughts

    “Pretty damning”? Yes, its definitely pretty damning for the race hustlers of all colors who’ve brainwashed generations of our children.

  • Ritzy101

    It is totally possible to be 100% White. My family is German and did not come to the US until 1921 (Dad’s side) and 1923 (Mom’s side). Obviously I know who my parents and grandparents were, and once past that the whole family tree is European. So I feel safe to say I am 100% White!

    • barry irving

      ..you don’t know that for sure!..do you realize how many branches are added to a family tree on both sides in just four generations?

      • Truth seeker

        Exactly. I like it when we agree Barry! LOL

        • barry irving

          …wasn’t addressing you, we won’t agree on much of anything because we are at opposite ends of academic thinking.

          • Truth seeker

            You don’t use academic thinking though, as you are not a part of academia. You use your self-proclaimed, anecdotal evidence style of thinking, as you have admitted already.

    • Truth seeker

      You might want to look into haplogroup charts. Although you may be predominantly European, we all share bloodlines from all continents. FACT. You are not 100% “white”, unless of course you mean by color and not ethnicity.

  • TheWhiteGuyLogic

    Obviously if a race/group of people go around constantly sh*t stirring, it is only going to be a matter of time before said group/race starts to metaphorically stink.

    How many other races/groups have white people F’ over?

    I rest my case.

    • Brian Jr.

      that doesn’t make sense

      • barry irving

        …OMG it’s brian Jr. with a new no doubt Racist symbol that he got from his father…sheesh!

        …What was the other one Brian Jr?…lemme see, oh yeah, White Pride World Wide..right?…RIIIEEETT?

    • Truth seeker

      If you look at World history, you can see where whites were slaves. As a matter of fact, the word “slave” comes from slavic women who were captured and used by the mongols. Japanese warred and almost completely wiped out the Ainu. Warring African tribes killed each other and sold their captives to slave dealers. Chinese have killed many budhhists. I can go on and on and on.

      Stop focusing on “whites”. Some whites were celtic (mainly Irish) and sold cheaper than African Slaves.

      Use the past as a reminder, but not a moral compass.

      • barry irving

        …that’s interesting but hardly the point. The American discussion of Race is predominantly about African American V.S. the “White’ social construct. So called :White” people are not one homogeneous group They are many intermixed Races who “call” themselves White for social status and racial identification.

        …also to be exclusive of so called ethnicity.

        …White Slave history is predominantly European like they are. The Irish, Germans, Polish, Jewish, Italians ( for example ) Immigrants were not considered to be White in the 1920’s. You had to be Anglo Saxon Protestant to be considered White then.

        …White became a broader term as America finished the 20th Century and entered the 21st. Now even African Americans who are light enough can call themselves and be officially identified as White and the reverse as we have seen recently in the news.

        … White people who have a slave ancestry don’t identify with it because it is not an issue of privilege and general respect or preference in American life…from the establishment. They suffer no expected – no emotional or physical blocks from Government or law enforcement because of their ancestry or race. So to use that history as a nullifier of African American
        protests, statements or concerns makes no sense.

        • Truth seeker

          Well….I have Jewish ancestry, and I can identify with slave ancestry. My father was a Russian Jew. Do you know what Russia did to the Jews before Nazi Germany?

          In the early 1900’s in America, Jews weren’t allowed into certain universities because they were becoming highly educated. That scared the powers that be. So you know what they did? They started their own Universities. KKK hated African Americans and Jews. About 20% of the people who attended the first million man march were Jewish.

          I will admit that it’s more difficult to tell if someone is Jewish than an African American, because a lot of Jews are “white”.

          I agree with you about your assessment of the white social construct. It is true. Race is also a social construct. We are in agreement there.

          While I do admit that racism is a problem, I believe it to be the lowest variable on the list that is holding the African American community back socioeconomically. It’s all about family structure.

          • Truth seeker

            I would be offended by your white derogatory attacks if it weren’t in retaliation to that $&%*#$!!!! named Brian, Jr. So I forgive you my brother.

          • barry irving

            …as I said before, you take yourself too seriously.

          • Truth seeker

            Considering that most of your responses are based on emotion and not logic, and the fact that you fail to answer or address most of what I ask or state, I can only conclude that once again, you are projecting.

            Although I am embarrassed by Brain, Jr., I can say this much; the way you respond to “white” people is counter-productive, and helps perpetuate bigotry. You are moving backwards, not forwards.

          • barry irving

            …you are NOT qualified to speak on the state of African American socioeconomics…get real. the only Americans being held back by the system are poor and uneducated people of which so called White people are the largest group. the core of all American family issues are White people that’s simple mathematics.

            …racism is a foundation of American life from the beginning. The notion of superiority comes from the earliest Christians who used the Bible and Christianity as a tool to justify their place in society and their aberrant rule.

            …since Slavery was a primary building block in American social and political evolution Racism is a byproduct of the system. Racism manifests itself in the most subtle of ways to violence and cruel acts. You trivialize it because you can’t handle the guilt…that’s your problem.

          • Truth seeker

            Guilt? LOL I”m not guilty of anything. Nothing for me to handle in those regards. Try again.

          • barry irving

            …the Holocaust was Genocide like Slavery, but it was not Slavery…the events have differing generational issues and Jews move in the world as White people, so their cry to remember is different at the core and different in it’s lasting social / political consequences. No one says to the Jews to “Get over it” or to call them as wallowing in victimization. wonder why?

            …ALL OTHER IMMIGRANTS IN THE 1900’S SUFFERED THE SAME INDIGNITY AS THE JEWS.

  • Brian Jr.

    Do not ever be ashamed about being white. I find it so amazing, that while white people make up only 7% of the world’s population, everyone else seems so threatened by us. If the roles were reversed, you’d be called a bigot and a racist. Be proud of who you are and of all our white ancestors have accomplished!

    • bluefission

      Accomplished??? You mean destroyed, stole, exploited, killed, divided, deceived, spread disease..etc. Way to proud for no reason.

      • Brian Jr.

        What race has accomplished more and done more for humanity than the white race? The white race put a man on the moon, while the vast majority of Africa has yet to provide their citizens with indoor plumbing.

        • bluefission

          White people are known for stealing peoples ideas and calling them their own…get off your neo nazi high horse. Many races put people on the moon you jackass….NASA is a mix of different races working together to achieve scientific progress.

          • Brian Jr.

            If you were able to read, you could do some research, and you’d find that when NASA first put a man into space, the astronaut team, and the engineering team, were all white. Why is it that anyone with white pride is a neo-Nazi? I am not a Nazi. I am a proud white man who isn’t going to be bullied into believing I should feel guilty about my race. White people have done as much, if not more for humanity than any other race. You can call me all the names you want, but you can’t prove me wrong. If white people are so evil, why do people of color flock to white countries? Why aren’t white people sneaking into Nigeria or Honduras? You have no answer for that, so you’ll go back to name calling. As far as stealing goes, isn’t that more of a black thing? After all, didn’t Michael Brown just get video taped stealing a box of Swisher Sweets?

          • bluefission

            You are a waste of bio material.. Cant wait until earth kills off people like you.

          • Brian Jr.

            Wow, that’s a brilliant counterpoint. Nice job.

          • Truth seeker

            You’re right. He couldn’t abstain from the Ad Hominem attacks!!! Good call on that one!!! LOL

          • Truth seeker

            I agree wholeheartedly.

          • Truth seeker

            Dr. Ben Carson was the first to operate on twins conjoined at the head, and complete the surgery successfully, where both children lived. Here’s the kicker….get ready for this Brian, Jr……the twins were born from a couple in Germany who came to America to ask for a genius’s help, who happened to be African American. I do think as time continues on, you will see more African America geniuses being born and contributing immensely to the world we live in today.

          • barry irving

            …if you have any sense of the scope of history…you would know that Dr. Carson’s achievement is one of the innumerable single wonders that Africans and African Americans have contributed from the beginning of humanity.

            …It’s no big deal when it’s a historical and biblical fact of life that people of struggle rise. Even the bible is one book of today that can dominate and claim life…
            ( against great opposition and personal filure )

            …yet it too is just a part of a world wide narrative on the essence of the almighty. Christianity is not the singular example…in Yoruba Land they talk of Allah and Olodumare. It’s about Olorun…not Heaven…salvation is in honesty, giving and honoring the ancestors – therefore the community and community life.

          • Truth seeker

            I am sure that many Africans are geniuses and have contributed to the world we live in, in so many ways. I will do more research on this topic, as it interests me.

          • barry irving

            …yeah…now you’re sure…that’s good, google or read books. You are obviously not going to be inventing any expansive theories on anything out of that head…LOL!

          • Truth seeker

            So when people open their minds with an intellectual curiosity to learn more about other cultures and successes they’ve had in history, you attack them???!!!!!

            Well…I’ll just say this……when I’m speaking of Genius African Americans, I’m not speaking of you. LOL!

          • Truth seeker

            Barry, I’m just curious….are you married with children?

          • barry irving

            I may be, but I’m not saying. Don’t want to give you the opportunity to take a stupid shot. My criticism of you is not a shot…it is based on the absurdity of the authority that you try to sound like you have.

          • Truth seeker

            And you accuse me of running? LOL (of course without addressing anything I’ve said previously). A pattern has developed with you. (projection)

          • barry irving

            …go ahead and try to reverse what I already proclaimed /projected you to be. That’s typical. I addressed what you said from the beginning and you just ran and you’re running now…

          • Truth seeker

            What have you addressed? I must have missed it. please explain so everyone can see.

          • barry irving

            …what you missed is that it sucks to be you! You dodge like a fly…everyone can see that too!

          • Truth seeker

            Now everyone can see for themselves who evades and doesn’t address anything. Thanks for making it apparent to everyone who is reading this thread. I appreciate it!

            I’ll ask this question for the third time now; What is it that you’ve done for the African American community besides spew anti-white diatribe?

            Have you talked to your community about strong family values and 2 parent households? Have you talked to them about how important education is for their future?
            Have you contributed towards scholarship programs for African -Americans, and if so, how?

            I WON’T BE SURPRISED IF YOU DON”T ANSWER ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS.

          • barry irving

            …you know that I’m not going to answer any of that …

            …g’nite Binky…sheesh!

          • Truth seeker

            And there you have it!!!!! He CONCEDES again!

          • Truth seeker

            I’m not scared to answer a simple question (as I have NOTHING TO HIDE). I am not married. I will propose to my girlfriend of 4 years after I receive my Practical Doctorate in the Medical Field. If all things go well, we start a family and be prepared to do so , and provide them a very good life, emotionally and monetarily. My girlfriend isn’t white btw.

            Basically, I’m poor, so I’m taking the right steps in the right direction to secure the best possible future I can for a family I want to have someday with the woman I love.

            THIS is called PARENTAL PRIVILEGE. If my girlfriend had been white, all the race-baiters would blame my child for having “white” privilege, because they are jealous and hateful, and cannot get passed their own self-victimization. It’s the race blame game.

            So Barry, are you married with children?

          • barry irving

            …you don’t know me and you would have to know my achievements
            ( which are considerable ) to place me in any category of achievements.

          • Truth seeker

            List some.

        • bluefission

          Oh you did create nuclear fission…and we all know how that went.. White people and fission+bomb=death. Helping the world……right..

    • barry irving

      …yeah, Racism and ignorance is an accomplishment…congrats!

      • Brian Jr.

        What’s the best place to hide a black man’s food stamps?
        Under his work boots

        • barry irving

          …food stamps don’t exist any more…people have debit cards stupid…I you have someones debit card for you act, then you’re a blasted thief!

          • Brian Jr.

          • barry irving

            …I thought you were done stupid…Brian Sr. must have been a piece of work…is he dead?….did he teach you to steal food stamps. How pathetic are you to look for this much insult?…well, eat up…I got it if yr hungry

          • Brian Jr.

            You make jokes about incest. You are a corny spade who knows a lot about food stamps. You keep making jokes about my dad because you never met yours. Blame that crack smoking mother of yours barry, not me.

          • Truth seeker

            Brian I was agreeing with your earlier posts, but now you are showing your true racist self!!! Go F off with your racist comments.. I will have nothing to do with you anymore. You actually give “White” people a very very bad name, when we live in a country of racial sensitivity. Love your brothers and sisters of all races, and stop being trash.

      • Truth seeker

        Who was being racist here? Show me to them, and I’ll have a word with them! >:(

  • Truth seeker

    That is sad. Very very sad. They are most likely repeating to you what they’ve learned at home or in their community.
