FLOWER MOUND, TX — April 5, 2021 —  The purpose of this column is to illustrate that every white person is a racist, even if they don’t know it. At least that’s the theory being foisted on the American public by some of the most radical “thinkers” in the country. Not only are whites racist, but the law and legal institutions are inherently racist too. In fact, race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of color. According to Critical Race Theory (CRT) (which is the latest justification for blacks to stigmatize whites without fear of condemnation as racists themselves), racial inequality emerges from social, economic and legal differences that white people create between races to maintain elite white interests in labor markets and politics, giving rise to poverty and criminality in minority communities.

So, it appears that it doesn’t matter what whites think, say, or do, they are racists because of the paucity of pigmentation in their skin. Aside from being called a pedophile, being labeled a racist is probably the most perilous and terrifying assault on one’s character and humanity. For decades we’ve been instructed not to use racial profiling and stereotyping, which attribute certain characteristics to groups of people. Part of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) Mission Statement is: “All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.” They even have a “hate map” to indicate where all the hate is in our country (www.splcenter.org/hate-map). Isn’t it possible that the hate is right under their noses with concepts like CRT and “White Fragility” (WF), a book by Robin DiAngelo, a self-described progressive and tenured professor, with extensive experience in “whiteness studies,” whatever that is? Incidentally, isn’t WF another term that uses racial characteristics to define an entire class of people?  

The aforementioned book’s title is followed by: “Why it’s so hard for White People to Talk About Racism.” This, from a white woman, who evidently thinks that all whites have the same problem she has. She describes white fragility as “a defensive response by white people when their whiteness is highlighted or mentioned, or their racial worldview is challenged, whether this response is conscious or otherwise.” She gives examples, including white people accusing someone of playing the race card. Once again, whites are being told that they are racists, and there’s nothing they can do about it because, according to this white woman, it’s programmed into their sociological DNA. Wouldn’t that make her a racist too? She doesn’t bother addressing that obvious question, since that might demonstrate the total absurdity of her inflexible thesis.

As for people playing the race card, I think there’s more than enough evidence of that every time race-hustlers like Al (Tawana Brawley) Sharpton, or the so-called “Honorable” Minister Louis (anti-Semitic) Farrakhan, open their bigoted mouths to spew hate-filled invective to the cheers of their equally malevolent followers. What these sociological constructs are saying is, there’s no hope for racial harmony because whites have no control over their psychologically induced loathing for blacks. What better way for this radical “progressive” author to continue nurturing the division in our country? How would she be able to sell books if blacks and whites were colorblind, which, by the way, she condemns because “it prevents people from understanding how race does matter in the current world.”

Do you get the idea that this woman’s entire career is based on fomenting dissension between racial groups? Like Sharpton, Farrakhan, Jesse (corporate shakedown) Jackson and their ilk, she has a vested interest in convincing us that racism is here to stay. Not only do these cretins get paid handsomely for their malicious and defamatory comments, but they enjoy total immunity from the “woke” establishment, which the Urban Dictionary defines as “being aware of the truth behind things “the man” doesn’t want you to know.” However, another definition might be “the act of being very pretentious about how much you care about a social issue.” That’s also accurately defined as “virtue-signaling.”

John McWhorter, Associate Professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University, writing in The Atlantic, called the book “a racist tract,” saying it infantilized and condescended towards black people.  In addition, he argued that the book contradicts itself about white racial identity and leaves white people with no way to avoid being racist. I also like what Author and Journalist Matt Taibbi said in criticizing Robin DiAngelo’s book. He labeled it as “pseudo-intellectual horseshit that is likely to have pernicious effects for race relations.”

Nevertheless, the best approach to race relations I’ve ever heard was said by Morgan Freeman, one of my favorite Hollywood actors during an interview with Mike Wallace several years ago. When asked by Wallace how we’re going to get rid of racism, Morgan simply said, “Stop talking about it.” He added, “I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.” I couldn’t agree more!

  1. the bottom line here is that American business CEO’s don’t agree with Mr. Weir and, in fact,they will do everything possible to make sure everyone has access to the polls no matter what the color of their skin..Meanwhile Marjorie Taylor Greene and the congressman from Arizona are starting an “anglo saxon” caucus.meant to implement anglo saxon traditions in other words exclusion of any one who isn’t WHITE…..that is not the way to expand the republican party….in fact it is guaranteed to repel most Americans who believe in cultural diversity which is coming to the US whether Weir likes it or not

  2. all “whites ” are certainly not racists..but many whites particularly in the south ARE….there is a reason that states like Texas and Georgia and Arizona whose elected state officials are republicans want to make it harder for minorities to vote..and that reason is the 2020 election where Trump lost the white house and the republicans lost the senate…Since the Civil war there has never been a time when blacks were treated with respect in the deep south…From Jim Crow on Black access to education to accomodations to restaurants was always limited…Whites like George Wallace pledged to uphold segregation NOW and FOREVER…Bob Weir is either limited in his understanding of black white history in the US or simply chooses to ignore the record….It wasn’t until the 1960’s that a voting rights bill was passed…Even Ronald Reagan chose dog whistles to pander to the hard right wing of the party in the southern states….people who by the way formerly considered themselves democrats but when Nixon ran on his southern strategy race was always an issue…Trump made the issue worse by endorsing the activities of white nationalist groups on the fringes of american politics and allowing the worst instincts to rise to the surface…Fine people on both sides at Charlottesville….Jews will not replace us at charlottesville as well…the oath takers the three per centers and the proud boys all part of Trumps inability to condemn hate on the right…Coupled with his support from Fox news opinion hosts even as recent as yesterday Tucker Carlson spewed the “replacement theory” as the motive for allowing immigrants into the country even legally…that theory is right wing garbage that attempts to link legal immigration to the diminishing of voting rights of white citizens…Fox knows who its base is and the bottom line is profit no matter what they have to peddle

    1. You’re watching too much CNN/MSNBC. I’ve been all over the south and now Blacks and whites get along much better down south than they do up here. They’ve made peace with their terrible past and they have to get along because they have similar population numbers with few brown yellow red buffer people (because race is everything) and they share a common bond in real Christianity .

        1. Whenever liberals are cornered with the facts involving real life experience especially in relation to those of us who spent decades in urban law enforcement they always respond to the uncomfortable reality as “anecdotal evidence.” It reminds me of the goofy hand wringing liberal John Jay college professors telling me how they believe the criminal justice system works 🤣despite the fact that they have never worked in the “Criminal Justice System” as they have never left the classroom as a student and eventually as a college “professor.”

          1. your real life experiences in a small corner of the world do not translate into universal truths..we have just seen cops in different parts of the nation murder in cold blood George Floyd Dante Wright
            and Adam in Chicago…The nation is disgusted with the police mindset that doesn’t seem to react well whenever a person of color supposedly steps over the line. And this is not a liberal conservative issue…Even the very right wing ultra conservative evangelical pastor Pat Robertson has said enough is enough..There is a reason that white supremacy is so popular both among the police departments of the nation and among the enlisted military (not the officer corp)….and that needs to be dealt with from the top…

          2. My “Small Corner of the world?” I’m a retired nypd detective with three and 1/2 decades of experience. My current employer takes me all over the south and I deal with southerners daily. Black or White these are a majority of absolutely beautiful people who have manners and true Christian values. I’ve also been all over the world including African, Latin American, communist and Islamic hell holes that nobody is “migrating” to. Even Western Europe has deteriorated into a godless hell hole. When visiting my family’s homeland in the 90’s we were advised by the cabbie to keep our head low as we were driving through Catholic west Belfast. This is the reason they’re are no “American” neighborhoods in other countries. You idiots are turning us into a disgusting turd world regime because you don’t know how good you have it here.

  3. Two Words….Phillip Adams. Two more….Cannon Hinnant. The list of bl@ck crimes on European Americans is shocking. The FBI crime stats don’t lie.

  4. The deranged white man who shot eight people in Georgia (not all 8 were Asian-American by the way) didn’t shoot them because of their race and/or ethnicity. Any rational person who looks at the facts of the case would say the same thing. But the left and their lapdogs in the media couldn’t wait to launch the race angle. We are always being told to “follow the data”, right? Well the data will overwhelmingly show that hate crimes against Asians, in a vast majority of cases, is perpetrated by Blacks, not by “white supremacists”. And what happened to the Me Too movement? It got trampled under foot by the “Stop Systemic Racism” mob. Georgia has one of the worst records of US states in terms of human trafficking and forced prostitution. These women were being forced to have sex in order to make a living, which is without a doubt, the most degrading and demoralizing thing that can be done to a person. No headlines in that I guess.

  5. White Lives Do Matter! White people are being persecuted and falling victim to this woke/so sorry agenda that is being rammed down throats across the US. White people are viewed as racists in many cases unless they publicly show solidarity that Black Lives Matter. Sort of what the big corporations are doing out of fear of being canceled. MLB delivers a woke message due to Georgia voting laws. What a joke! Double standard. You need an ID to pick up tickets at will call to go to an mlb game, but they want no ids to vote. So pull all of that business the all star game generates and screw over the restaurants and businesses nearby after getting crushed the last year

    1. You need ID to vote in Canada and Mexico, go and try to vote there illegally as an American citizen and see what happens. You need ID in this country to adopt a cat but not to vote. Take a minute and really think about that. When the truth becomes uncomfortable it becomes politically incorrect or racist and you’re cancelled. You’re losing your country to classic communist manifesto divide and conquer the “Useful Idiots”tactics-wake up

  6. Wow, just when you thought Weir couldn’t be more ignorant, tone-deaf, clueless and racist he pulls out another stunner. At a time when a white cop is on trial for clearly murdering an unarmed black man in police custody by keeping a knee on his neck for almost 10 minutes, Weir wants us all to just live in some colorless fantasy world.

    1. Don’t worry you white liberals the “mostly peaceful” St. George rioting and looting are on the horizon soon as the truth possibly results in an accurate verdict. You’re going to be able to be victimized to alleviate your neurotic “white guilt” by enabling your very own destruction. You idiots, far more whites and blacks are killed by the “George Floyds”of this country and there’s a black on black bloodbath going on in Chicago that is all but ignored by the fake news. Why are the Irish, Armenians and Jews who’ve suffered far far worse and much more recent genocides so well adjusted despite their horrific pasts?

    2. These are some direct Malcolm X quotes about the Democrats and liberals.

      1. The white liberal is the worst enemy to America, and the worst enemy to the black man.

      2. The liberal is more deceitful than the conservative.

      3. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative.

      4. Liberal is a nasty name.

      5. Liberal represent hypocrisy.

      6. That white person that you see calling himself a liberal is the most dangerous thing in the Western hemisphere, he’s the most deceitful.

      7. The white liberals are nothing but political hypocrites who use our people as political footballs only to get bills passed that will increase their own power.

    3. Is it possible the man is on trial because he’s a white officer? Would there have been a murder charge if the officer was black or would they come out with the coroners report about all the drugs in the system and attribute it to his death?
      -if he was leaning on George’s neck, George would not be able to talk. There is a theory that he was leaning on the guy’s shoulderblade more than his neck
      -George Floyd said he couldn’t breathe even when he was in the supermarket so something was going on with him before
      -If George didn’t refuse to get in the cop car or get high he may well be alive today. His actions contributed to his death.

  7. This is a slippery slope we’ve entered. There are those that would rather see the country fail/fall, then truly address the underlying causes of what is taking place in America today. The average length of an empire is 250 years, according to Sir John Bagot Glubb. Then comes the fall. It is overwhelmingly caused by overreaching in the search for power. Sound familiar? 1776-????

  8. In his 1968 third party populist run for the White House Governor George Wallace of Alabama was labeled a racist by many Americans throughout this great free country we are fortunate to live. He was against forced busing and opposed all aspects of Brown vs Board of Education 1954. The now deceased Governor received an astonishing 10 million votes in that year of turmoil. The race issue l believe will unfortunately, continue to divide us. They’re is too much rage and hate on our streets./

  9. I totally agree. I feel whites are now being discrimated against. When companies tell their employees to stop being so white is disgusting. Why is it ok for blacks to have their own clubs, colleges, TV channels and networks. Could you imagine what stir it would cause if we had an only white TV channel. I’m sick of it all, the only thing their doing is creating more of a division of races..

    1. what kind of logic are you using…why is it ok for blacks to have their own clubs?…for years white only clubs existed throughout the south..white only golf clubs…white only hotels, white only bathrooms white only water fountains…black only colleges like Howard developed because blacks were denied entrance into most white universities so in order not to miss out on a college education which clearly the writer of the above column doesn’t have, they started their own colleges…and produced the doctors and lawyers that would have gone unproduced had they simply allowed white only colleges to deny their admissions…the division of the races isn’t being committed by blacks..it is being perpetrated by right wing media outlets and right wing ethno nationalists and white supremecist groups which preach “replacement theory” and that includes Fox news’ Tucker Carlson the other night…Replacement theory is a recognized anti semitic and anti black meme that argues if we allow blacks and browns to vote they will “replace white voters’ really? and if we allow Jews to own things and invest they will “replace” us as the Charlottesville marchers chanted together. So lets understand that replacement theory is based on white supremacy and that division is the result of Donald Trump pandering to white ethno nationalists like the proud boys the three percenters and the oath takers….and Qanon….these folks have been allowed to emerge from the rocks they have been hiding under for years…This is the first time in the history of the Republican party that it has sought to embrace rather than reject these denizens of the internet who believe in conspiracy theories and elect hard right people like marjorie taylor green..and boevert and Jim jordan matt gaetz louie gomert and others who take full advantage of the lack of information that those who watch only fox news opinion hosts OANN and Newsmax have because Facts are curious things…and these people simply don’t believe in facts
