Honky Like Me

Discovering your inner bigot:

Moreover, I was guilty of "democratic racism" -- by which we apply ostensibly race-neutral principles such as "due process," constantly demanding clear "evidence" of wrongdoing, rather than confronting prima facie instances of racism head-on. "It seems we're always looking for more proof," said the instructor, an energetic left-wing activist who's been teaching this course for several years. "When it comes to racism, you have to trust your gut."

Inmates. Running. Asylum. Read the whole thing. The premises of these "anti-racism" activists is totalitarian. White people are assumed to be racists. It's innate in the individual, and inherent in our capitalist system. Collectivism, however, is still collectivism, no matter how strenuously its advocates say they abhor a particular type of collectivism i.e. racism.

Seems to me to be righteous, racist, bigoted philosophising making one feel good about oneself while looking down in disgust at targetted people.

Looks like everyone has moved out of this town.

They'll be back. I hope.

When you have no argument play the race card. It worked for Democrats for decades!

Toronto = the New Apartheid South Africa.

The paradox is that these are the very people who promote and exploit racism with their identity politics. Anyone claiming that only Whites are racist is either lying or totally ignorant of reality. Rightly or wrongly, it is a normal tendency of human nature to be suspicious of anyone not a member of the group, which is the basis of "racism". I do not excuse racism and, in fact, have no tolerance for racists of any group, but I am also aware that it was not the invention of Whites nor do they have a monopoly on it.

Eugene TerreBlanche died this week - beaten to death by two Black workers whom he exploited. There's a lesson in that for white Toronto: what goes around, comes around.

Maybe racism is the answer. Perhaps we should celebrate it. Should we not be happy to be in the skin we are in? We could have parades in Toronto to celebrate the various races. Let's have a hug for the Black/Brown/Red/White/Yellow guy/gal! Let's hear it for the mixed race people! Three cheers for everyone!

In less than 40 years Canadian whites will be a minority and the subject will be academic.

Whether whites make up the majority or not isn't the issue - Apartheid South Africa had a white minority, an African majority, and Coloured (Indian and Asian) minorities. Whites still ruled. White Toronto will still be in charge in 40 years, during which time they will prove to be the opposite of their progressive image.

And much like Zimbabwe and South Africa it will unravel until it falls apart completely. Whites in South Africa now live in armed camps and go nowhere without armed escorts.Zimbabwe is even worse with a active agenda to rid the country of all whites. Whites may have ruled in the past but the wagons are circling ever tighter and the future is black.(pun)

There`s a lot of resentment out there over the fact that whites seem to be the default ruling class usually with good reason - they seem to do a better job of it . We fall all over ourselves to be ' fair ' and ' non- bigoted ' , to the point of self - flagelation but on a point by point basis it has to be examined . You have to call a spade a spade [ pun ] .

The issue isn't black or white (pun), the degree of skin pigmentation is neither here nor there. Africa was dragged from the stone age into the modern world in a short period of time, it has yet to adjust. Right next to the basketcase that is Zimbabwe is Botswana, a sane and civilized country run by blacks, with a higher living standard and better governance than some white countries in eastern Europe. Race isn't the issue, it's culture.

Spot on Publius.

Toronto and Ontario should be subjected to international boycotts and sanctions over their callous disregard for human rights. They did the same over Apartheid, now they can endure the same.

You are absolutely correct. When it was still Rhodesia and before political correctness drove drove out the whites, it was the self sufficiant bread basket of Africa. Now it's just a basket case. It was the whites that drove out the whites under the treat of embargos.
In this case ,(Race isn't the issue, it's culture.)

Posted by: Publius | 2010-04-10 10:15:39 AM

Culture won and the outcome was extremely detrimental to Rhodesia. Or was race really the issue?

Reject proof. Reject reality. Trust your gut. Now there are the words of a closeted witch finder.

Hooray, the comment section works again!

Not sure, but apparently the comments are funnelled through a third-party site. I wrote the webmaster, and I assume the scribblers did too--hard not to notice when there's not a single response posted to your blogs for two weeks! But if the Shotgun depends on a third-party site, and that site is down, not much to be done. Although I suppose they could always practice what they preach and set up their own server.

Then in 40 years, Peter, whites will be claiming to be the victims of racism, and the circle will be complete. You're also assuming that we don't revise our immigration policies in the next 40 years.

Sort of what I was getting at. I dont know how old ZEB is, but if he can only hang in there he may see all his wishes come true. Just trying to give him some hope.

Whenever I go to Vegas, I see criminals of all breeds. When I wannt peace and harmony, I immerse myself in the culture of the people of Bermuda.
