Academia Stokes Racial Division

Stoking division between people based on race is not new for academia, but it’s not needed in our local schools.

By 1990, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History was making people aware of certain signs of “whiteness”: individualism, hard work, objectivity, the nuclear family, progress, respect for authority, delayed gratification, and more.

If you wanted to wreck an entire community of people, this kind of thinking is how you would start. The document below was found on a “whiteness” page at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture website.

The experience for most black people in the US is unquestionably unique. No white person has walked in those shoes. But it’s clear that the vast majority of those items condemned on the document and website are universally good, and absolutely transcend race, ethnicity and culture.

Individualism, hard work and objectivity will help you succeed in any country on any continent, regardless of your skin color. To negatively call these traits of “whiteness” is ridiculous and horribly destructive to kids of any background trying to find success and prosperity in life.

This is the kind of thing that is being taught in far too many schools. This kind of thinking sets kids up for failure, and should be condemned in every way.
