How Do We Save the World from the White Man? (A response to the response to “Should White boys still be allowed to talk?”)

In his autobiography Malcolm X described racism as a psychosis in the white psyche. White people, he said, were able to function in all other ways as human beings should, but on the question of race white people lost all ability to reason rationally and instead deferred to insanity. As a result Malcolm asserted that for the non-white peoples of this nation, there was never an American dream but rather an American nightmare. Malcolm would never live to see the horrors of mass incarceration, he never lived to witness the massive wars of imperialism in non-white nations that the U.S. would wage overtly and covertly in the 21st century, he never came to know for himself the absurdity of the neo-fascist government that we have in our current administration. Yet in our current racial climate Malcolm’s diagnosis reads just as true now as it did then.

The backlash from last weeks op-ed “Should White Boys Still Be Allowed To Talk?” points once again to the unfortunate reality that Dickinson College, from its alumni, to its student body, to even its sitting president, have failed to mature beyond a remedial understanding of the racial question. For those of us who have experienced the brutality of a nation that declares people of color expendable, the article read not as an offense but a declaration of an emotion many of us feel every day. But for those who have come to believe themselves to be white, the article provoked an anger and an immaturity that reveals to all of us that we still have a long way to go in seeing each other as human beings. 

Of course the history of human liberation in the United States is littered with similar forms of backlash. If there is one thing an individual can learn from the history of this nation, it’s that on the question of the liberation of human beings, white people, and white men more specifically, will not respond rationally. Peaceful and rational requests for just treatment have time and time again been met with nothing but extreme violence and repression. For some reason, white men have chosen to respond to calls for equal justice as being an existential threat to their existence. As a result of this, the conversation continues to be stifled as oppressed people are forced to continue to make the same arguments for their humanity as white men continue to refuse to understand.

The reality remains that the marginalization of human beings is a reality in this world, and as a result of it people die every day. Whether white men want to face it or not, many of their words and assumptions about the world are pushed through a prism that only allows for them to be understood as fully human. As a result, many of their contributions tend to reassert structures of oppression and inequality that have a physical effect on the lives of human beings. 

From racism, to sexism, to heteronormativity, to even climate change, the need for white men to have their narratives be central to all conversations poses a threat to human beings everywhere. So when a woman of color writes an article suggesting that this group of individuals, who have yet to demonstrate any collective competence in treating people as human beings, take a step back and shut their mouths for once in history, it might be in the interest of everyone.

So the question then must be asked, if white men and their ideas post such an existential threat to progress,  how do we save the world from the white man? We save the world from the white man by understanding that the idea of the white man has become obsolete, and it is in the interest of the humanity that challenge and dismantle it wherever it tries to manifest itself. We must never forget that race is a constructed identity, that serves the function of perpetuating a status quo of inequality. 

The idea of the white man is one that asserts that the lives and stories of one group of individuals is normative over all others. Where do we see the idea of the white man at Dickinson College? We see it in comments that suggest that a challenge to whiteness as being reverse racist. We see it when people assert that the intersectional injustices that exist in the world are not present on our campus. We see it when people’s material experience of racism is written off as an over-reaction. We see it in admissions pamphlets that treat diversity as a selling point, rather than a commitment which has life-long ramifications for those who are labeled “minority.” We see it in an email from President Ensign, that sides with the backlash of angry white men who don’t understand the humanity of others, rather than the historic lived experiences of marginalized people who do and have attended Dickinson College.

If there is any hope for real progress at Dickinson College, it will be in our ability to save ourselves from the idea of the white man. If we do not dare everything in this pursuit.

 Then we will continue down the nihilistic path of gradual change through conversation which cannot produce real change. Humanity and whiteness cannot exist in the same space without conflict. The challenge to all of humanity will be which side of the conflict we will choose to stand on.

    There’s no such thing as reverse racism, you’re just plain racist. This drivel is just full of generalizations about a race and your ultimate defense is “minorities can’t be racist”. It’s so ironic how racist that statement is because you’re already assuming based on skin color (and not life experience or hardships) who has privilege and who is a victim. When your definition leads to a white homeless person on the street somehow having more privilege than the ivy league minority that grew up on among wealth, you should understand how much of a racist joke your argument was in the first place.

    Everyone thinks their opinion matters, it’s your own fault if you’re too insecure to articulate your own or debate the merits of a disagreeing opinion. The only people metaphorically raising white voices and opinions/ideas above those of minorities are the people with ideologies like your own. I don’t think I’m superior because I’m white…The only people who feel that way and tell that to white people are you and others who think like you do, all while holding the skin color up on a pedestal that exists only in your own minds.

  2. Nathan on February 14th, 2019 10:52 pm

    This is perfect. An article I’m proud to read having graduated from Dickinson last year. It’s hilarious how campus and Ensign responded. Because it’s so sadly predictable how they did ultimately. A front row seat to hypocrisy never gets boring, unfortunately.

  3. White Males on February 15th, 2019 12:33 pm

    remarkably invalid and poorly written.

  4. John Doe on February 15th, 2019 2:55 pm

    I don’t think you can claim a holier-than-thou view of race when you identify with Malcom X’s viewpoints. Malcolm X was a black supremacist who thought that “white people were devils” and that “blacks are the superior race.” You then go on to come to the conclusion that race is a social construct (which I agree with), but that somehow white people (again you use broad, racist generalizations) are incapable of rational thought when it comes to race. Do you see how racist and hypocritical you are? In one instance you say we are all the same. But in another instance we are all the same except for whites because whites aren’t rational when it comes to race. Somehow, a few non-white (see how I am not generalizing an entire populous) people have come the conclusion that white people are the sole species that have lived their life free of discrimination or racism. To all those people that think that, please read a dam history book. Christians were persecuted, incarcerated, and brutally murdered for their beliefs for years. Jews were rounded up and murdered by the millions less than 100 years ago.

    And no, I am not trying to say that whites face the same level of discrimination as blacks in present day America. What I am attempting to get at, is that everyone is an individual. Most of us have been discriminated against for some reason or another at some point in our life… some much more than others. Blacks certainly have been subjected to the most severe discrimination in the US in recent times, no one denies this. But generalizing the entire white population as incapable of “rational” discussion when it comes to race, is, in itself racist. And though whites are over represented in top positions., stating that their opinions should be silenced because they are coming from a white man is again, racist.

    “How do we save the world from the white man?” Did you use your brain when typing this title. I mean seriously, you would think minorities would be sensitive to racial prejudice and making broad accusations about an entire race (and sex) of people, but it seems your solution is to fight back with even more bigoted thoughts. “The idea of the white man”, as you put it, actually has nothing to do with white men, but specifically with people who hold power over others. In most cases today, yes, a white man is in power a majority of the time. But your problem seems to stem more from the abuse of power, and the unwillingness for these people in power to relinquish it, than it does with race or sex. This is hardly a problem that rests solely with the white man. It is present with blacks, latinos, indians, literally every group that holds some power in a certain industry.

    I am a white man, and I admit to having some privilege by being born white, but it’s not like I chose to be white. I am not “proud” of being white more than I would being any other color. I (and most white men) do not perpetuate racist ideas, nor do I have the power to enact racial or sexist prejudice even if I wanted to. I went to Dickinson on my own dime and am still working two jobs to pay off my student loans. I am not part of the 1% nor do I wish to silence those that speak out about institutional racism. I did not dislike Leda’s article or yours because I am attempting to silence minority viewpoints, it’s because you make racist accusations about an entire population of people as “incapable of rational thought” when it comes to race. Simply put, your answer to racism is to be even more racist.

  5. James Meyer on February 16th, 2019 2:08 pm

    What are you talking about ? I’m a white male, I’m raising, 4yo Grand daughter, I go out into communities that need help and do work on homes where the homeowners can’t afford the work. I feed the homeless, I give to food banks as well as donate boxes of food. At Christmas I give new bike and other gifts to kiss and families that have no money for their kids. ??? Not to mention I sponsor 3 kids in Africa and have for decades. I could go on but my point is your op-ed I’d totally false, propaganda, RACIST and ridiculous

    Get out of your little bubble you freak. Move to Africa. See what a lack of white leadership leads to. Once the South African white farmers leave, the entire continent will starve.

    The freedom you have to write this garbage was literally built upon the accomplishments of white people. The advancements of white people. The system of democracy created by white people.

    People like you make me sick. You live in the most advanced nation in the world. A nation primarily created by white men and you dare

    A plane ticket to Africa costs around $1,000. I am sure you can afford that in oppressive America. Why dont you just leave? Put your money where your mouth is. Go live in a place where there isnt any whites? Go. Do it now. Otherwise, shut up.

  8. Nigel on February 16th, 2019 2:58 pm

    How was you life brutal Kevin?

  9. steve on February 16th, 2019 3:01 pm

    i myself am glad that I am white. Is that allowed? i am proud of everything that “the white man” has created.
    sign: A very proud White guy

  10. I'm not giving my name to a machine. on February 16th, 2019 3:37 pm

    I’ll take the opinion that white people lack compassion seriously when every other ethnic group is capable of coming around to the idea of it on their own, instead of from said white people. Seeing as everywhere we’ve gone we’ve come across people eating each other, dumping babies in burning trash piles, and decorating their haciendas with sacrificial skulls, that seems rather unlikely anytime soon.

  11. David smith on February 16th, 2019 3:52 pm

    Blacks sold their own into slavery. Slavery has existed on the African continent for over 3000 years and still does. There have been African countries whose gross domestic product was derived almost EXCLUSIVELY FROM SELLING THEIR FELLOW BLACKS INTO BONDAGE.
    I guess, based on the writers logic, we should be more worried about saving ourselves from the black man.

  12. Lawrence Anderson on February 16th, 2019 4:00 pm

    It seems to me that your idea is all people of color around the world team up against the White Man. I urge you to keep preaching this to as many people as possible. By all means the more explicit you are about your hatred for us, the more we White people will band together as a group as well. You may not like the consequences. Your tone is that of a child who wishes to have that which another has made but is unable to achieve himself. You want the trappings of Western Civilization yet your ancestors contributed nothing into building it.

  13. Jehoseniquah on February 16th, 2019 4:06 pm

    How can one who attends a private college claim to be marginalized by society? I can’t even list all of the statements and ideas expressed here that are ridiculously non sensical.

    Even your very writing demonstrates a lack of education in the grammatical errors and abuses of the English language. Clearly Dickinson college should not be accredited if this demonstrates the level of education achieved by upper division students and alumni.

  14. David Duke on February 16th, 2019 4:25 pm

    Now this is the kind of racial hatred that I approve!

  15. Evin Onko on February 16th, 2019 4:36 pm

    Lemme guess — Kevin Ssonko is either 1) Jewish . 2) Black or Brown . 3) a mix of Jewish/White/bLack/brown . 4) A straight white male brainwashed by Marxist/Jewish anti-white propaganda . 5) A straight white male brainwashed by Marxist/Jewish anti-white propaganda . 6) A transexual male or female or any race brainwashed by Marxist/Jewish anti-white propaganda

    Hey Kevin – stop parroting anti-white Jewish lunatics like Noel Ignatiev. Or, if you want white genocide then have the guts to say it.

    Your local Daily Stormer Book Club will be discussing you Kevin. They’re very interested in your scholastic future.

  16. Carl americ on February 16th, 2019 4:48 pm

    This article is mindless drivel!

    Does racism exist? Yes! However, the focus given to racism today is out of control and disproportionate to the issue. Until Obama became President and drove a wedge between people, I would have said that racism was largely dead. He seemed to go out of his way to focus on racial issues and create division.

    We have now dinigrated to total identity politics if one is a Republican. If one is a Republican, you are automatically called a racist. This is an oxymoron since the Democrat Party is the party of the Klan and The Jim Crow era.

    I would suggest we quit trying to lay blame on any race and to again begin looking at each other as people. We seemed well on our way to that until 10 years ago. I can tell you, if we don’t stop with the identity politics, destruction of historical statues and name calling we are headed for big trouble. By this, I mean a true fragmentation of our country and our way of life. So stop with blaming blacks, whites, Asian or any other race and just GTFU and act like adults rather than petulant children

  17. Daniel B Schruender on February 16th, 2019 6:09 pm

    This is one of the most hate filled things I have ever read. Kevin Ssonko is nothing but a racist.

  18. Daniel B Schruender on February 16th, 2019 6:12 pm

    This is one of the most hateful things I have ever read. Kevin Ssonko is nothing but a racist. Also, I refuse to be held responsible for the crimes of my ancestors. I will take responsibility for my own actions only and no one else’s.

  19. Lisa Davis on February 16th, 2019 6:42 pm

    As this country, the laptop, internet, social media, most of the comforts he takes for granted, AND the college he attends were created by “evil” white men, may I suggest the author ditch them all for a hut in some 3rd-world hell-hole where there isn’t another self-loathing “evil” white man for hundreds of miles! He’ll be happier much there!

  20. Joseph Jones on February 16th, 2019 7:48 pm

    If the individuals want to be treated as whites who might have written this racist garbage then expel them because that is what would happen had any white written such biased hateful trash.

  21. A. Reader on February 16th, 2019 8:01 pm

    Hey Kevin, Your little essay is moronic.

  22. alandean on February 16th, 2019 9:37 pm

    Pick a year. Look at how the world was acting, and look how western culture and more specifically, the US was acting in that year.

    1776. The leaders of a fledgling democracy decided for the first time in the history of the world that rights flowed from a creator to the individual, and couldn’t be taken away. The rest of the world believed a King or ruler held the rights, and could decide what he may or may not allow his subjects to enjoy. Land and fruits of innovation all belonged to the king. The founders of the US decided land and fruits of innovation belonged to the people. No other country believed this at the time

    1791. The US decided to codify the rights of their people in the bill of rights. Something most countries even today haven’t given to their people. From freedom of speech and religion, to the right to a speedy trial. It was western culture that led the way here.

    1865. The world widely employed slavery. it was prevalent throughout the middle east, Asia, Africa. It was white men that decided “enough”, no more. Today, more people than ever are enslaved throughout the world–some 40M in total. Mostly in the middle east. The US and Europe led the way here.

    1920. The US decided women should vote after a long debate where many women didn’t want the right to vote. the modern world, including china and india, would take other 30 years to grant the same. Much of the middle east today still doesn’t permit women to vote.

    1960. US began passing a series of civil rights protections. Protections that most other countries today still do not have.

    1965. US begins a dramatically increasing immigration. In 1965, white people were 90% of the US population. Today, they are 71%. This dramatic change was done intentionally by the 90%. No other country has so dramatically changed its makeup in such a short period of time as the US.

    2008. the US elects the first black president. A president from a racial group held by just 12% of the population. No other major country in the world has reached across such racial lines to select its leader. There was no rioting, there was no violence. Just the normal passage of power the US has always enjoyed.

    If you are a PoC living in the US today, what country could possibly offer you more opportunity? As shown above the US has been a leader, a transformer, an example, for the rest of the world. Don’t judge 1860 United States by today’s standard. Look at how, in every decade, the US has led the world in doing what is right. Is it perfect? Nope. But it’s the best the world has got.

  23. Jared Taylor on February 17th, 2019 5:53 am

    Keep it up. You will eventually drive whites to an understanding that they cannot possibly share the same government with people who think and write this sort of thing. The sooner we separate the better. Please do seek the separate non-white utopia you think you can create away from “the idea of the white man.” Build your own Wakanda — or your own Haiti.
    Just leave us white people alone to follow our own destiny, separate from people who hate us.

  24. J. W. on February 17th, 2019 9:25 am

    Your are full on racist pigs. Sickness.

  25. Robert Exton on February 17th, 2019 1:03 pm

    So called evil white men build a country that all people of color from around the world want to come to.
    Why aren’t all people trying to get to Africa , India , China or any Arab controlled country ?

    Why are all these people of color invading Europe ? Why aren’t they staying in their countries of primarily non White evil men ? Stop using all inventions of the evil white men, that is cultural appropriations,, and move to a non evil white men country . when you do that , maybe you will have a clue about the evil white man ways.

    This is more proof of the brain washing of Students ! Why is it that all these WHITE students are hating themselves? Because the school system has ingrained that if you are a white male you must be evil and hate yourself. Also if you are a white person in American you are not allowed to be proud of your race. as others have said this is the Nazi, communist socialist indoctrination of children over decades.
    “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. Let me teach him for eight years and I will make them Bolsheviks. “
    Vladimir Lenin

  26. Chilqiiyyah on February 17th, 2019 2:36 pm

    You will destroy yourselves and no one will intervene as the Americans did for Germany when they saved Europe after they allowed the NAZI socialists to run the cultural train off its track in the 20th century.

    Identity politics is destroy you.

    Good bye

  27. JB Taylor on February 17th, 2019 8:21 pm

    After reading your opinion, I would guess that you will never be anything in life as your hatred and racism will always be reflected in your life choices and prevent you from making really good choices and taking the best opportunities.

    Appears to be just another jock who will amount to nothing. Such a waste. A student with real potential could have used the opportunity you were given to actually achieve something in life. So you wasted your potential and prevented a worthy individual from getting a shot.

    Hope you are proud of yourself.

  28. Dickinson Sucks on February 17th, 2019 9:13 pm

    This is a perfect example of some stupid leftist kid who writes drivel passing it off as knowledge. Grow up. When you and your leftist ilk want to have a grown up conversation about race, gives us a call.

  29. Linda Grace on February 17th, 2019 10:16 pm

    Schools need to go back to just concentrating on reading, writing, history, science, and math. Race relations are already low, so why make it worse by stirring up this type of strife? I have an English B.A, and we never wrote such ridiculous articles and essays as this. I don’t believe myself to be white; I am white, and there is nothing wrong with it. Let’s just try to get along with each other.

  30. Concerned on February 17th, 2019 10:33 pm

    Has anyone suggested to Margee Ensign that she may want to consider getting her head out of her ass and get a handle on the situation. Honey, you’re not in Nigeria anymore. You’re job is to run a college. Hope the Board of Trustees is scheduling an emergency meeting to vote on concerns of no confidence in her ability!!!

  31. Ziggi on February 18th, 2019 5:29 am

    Monumantal grievance and resentiment. This will be remembered as the good argument to get rid of the left-wing scum out the academia.

  32. Tsotsi on February 18th, 2019 8:04 am

    Let us not conflate xenophobia with racism, especially ‘white vs black racism’.

    Xenophobia – fear of someone different to you, your family, culture or experience up to that point is a natural, atavistic reaction. It’s as natural as a sudden rush of attraction when a heterosexual young man sees a stunning young woman, especially if she is scantily clad. It’s the reason a young missionary was recently killed by the isolated tribe he was trying to befriend and introduce to Christianity. It’s a deeply primordial instinct.

    The Japanese, in particular, are, or rather until relatively recently were, notably xenophobic. Does that make them racists? Yes, in a way, it does. Yet this trait is fast disappearing as the Japanese learn it’s not acceptable in the modern world, and actually harmful to themselves. Castigating the Japanese openly, in their own country and in a highly perjorative way just puts their back up and does not help. Foreigners crying ‘Wolf, wolf’ too stridently in Japan do not get very far.

    Xenophobia needs to be managed by accepting it’s often the first, instinctive reaction, but that intelligent, insightful adults control this and override it.

    By all means protest against ‘racism’ in ALL its forms, work on maintaining your dignity despite evidence thereof, educate, educate educate, but dismissing an entire subsection of humanity as incapable of learning and overplaying the victim card does not work.

    Peoples often thrive under adversity and degenerate when things get too cushy. Apartheid did the Afrikaner people of South Africa a huge disservice. A nation that had fought the British tooth and nail, overcame great adversity to thrive when the colonialists left were rendered helpless when the artificial advantages of apartheid were removed and the Afrikaner was forced to compete on merit, not race. OK, this effect is not so much seen at the top of Afrikaner society, which still enjoys significant inherited wealth or advantage, but it led to the emergence of a never before seen class of ‘poor white’ Afrikaners. Destitute.

    Too much ‘affirmative action’ saps a people’s or nation’s ability to thrive under adversity. In the long run, it’s more damaging than the original oppression.

    So we need to fight for level playing fields, not removal of those we don’t like.

  33. Dan emery ‘05 on February 18th, 2019 8:25 am

    Here’s a neat trick to try!

    Remember the game mad libs from 90s?

    Take Ssonko’s piece and replace every instance of the word “white” with the word “Jewish”

    It would be a piece that’s perfectly recognizable in 1939 Germany.

    Nice work. Please consider my donation to Dickinson in 2019 to be my last and remove me from mailing lists.

  34. Bob on February 18th, 2019 9:00 am

    “The idea of the white man is one that asserts that the lives and stories of one group of individuals is normative over all others.”

    What the HELL does that mean?

    HERE is why the Chinese are kicking our butts. The Chinese wouldn’t bother to send someone like Kevin for higher education. His dense, boring, meaningless prose is the hallmark of a dullard. In China, he would do something relatively useful, like working in a factory making knock-off Hello Kitty dolls, or picking through trash looking for recyclables. Here in America, he will chew up tens of thousands in government-guaranteed college loans while he majors in Transgender Theory and hopes to latch on as a Junior Inclusivity Officer For LGBTQXYLG Affairs at the Department of Fisheries. He will be hired into this or some other make-work job and will churn out dull, meaningless drivel like this in memo after memo that throbs with his dull, senseless hatred of Whites, lead the dull life of a brainwashed mope and die after being a burden on society all of his dull life. He will be missed by no one and no one will be able to remember his preferred gender pronoun after he had dully transitioned among 15-20 gender identities in his fruitless attempts to find meaning in his pointless existence. He will be buried cheaply at government expense.

  35. B mart on February 18th, 2019 10:45 am

    This is a complete embarrassment to the school to have a racist represent them like this!

  36. The American Millennial on February 18th, 2019 2:33 pm

    How do you not see the blatant racism in these two “articles”. What will be the excuse once the Hispanic population becomes the majority, as it is projected to do? I ask you to take your articles and flip the script, and imagine a white person wrote and open ended piece about how blacks are ruining the world, or how they are tired of hearing blacks speak. Contrary to what you believe, you are not a victim, note are your words justified or appropriate. This is racism in its most disgusting and purest form; and someone who is a student of such a prestigious university should be ashamed.

  37. Not Kevin on February 18th, 2019 3:02 pm

    You’re the racist one Kevin. Please keep it up, I want you to get all of this anti-white nonsense out into the mainstream where the masses can decide if you deserve a voice. BUT, as a backup plan you should probably LEARN TO CODE.

  38. WTF on February 18th, 2019 6:58 pm

    Fat Studies???!!?? Seriously? What has our education program degraded to that Fat Studies is a course? And THAT was her FAVORITE class at Dickinson.
    How is this person still listed as an ambassador for anything? Disgraceful!

  39. Jorel on February 18th, 2019 7:16 pm

    This article is another in a long series by various racist blacks. Like its predecessors, it’s setting the stage for genocide against whites. The white race is the new “Juden” in the New Black Reich of America. Unfortunately, one of these days, these black supremacists and Antifa types will attack the wrong group at the wrong time, and it will be “game on”. I assure you that when all this finally goes kinetic (and it WILL, sooner rather than later), the end result won’t be nearly what the black racists and fascist Antifa are expecting.

    Tick tock….

  40. Jim Jones on February 18th, 2019 8:15 pm

    This seems like a racist call for genocide of white people by an overprivileged snot nosed twit. I am fairly certain that it wont go they way he thinks it will. He needs to get a real job, earn a living, pay some taxes and get back to me in 20 years to see if he still knows it all.

  41. Veteran and Patriot on February 19th, 2019 5:59 pm

    Pure racist drivel. This writer and propagandist is a product of the marxist education complex. Unless this nonsense is stamped out, things in this country will only get worse. The marxists have been very effective churning out these brain dead idiots who foment hate against the Western culture. God help our country!!!

  42. Siddhartha on February 20th, 2019 8:31 am

    As someone who lives in Asia, in a nation with a serious racism problem — and very few white men — I find this article to be surprisingly racist. And it’s written by someone who actually believes they are not racist!

    Do you really think that racism is something that only comes from white people?

    You really should travel some more. You don’t understand the world at all. This is a very provincial definition of racism written by a shortsighted human.

  43. Musashi on February 20th, 2019 7:39 pm

    Here’s the reason why Kevin and the rest of the brown world hates “the idea of the White man”: it’s because deep inside they all know they’re utterly incapable of the level or amount of accomplishments the White man has achieved.

    Brown countries suck because brown people suck.

  44. Musashi on February 20th, 2019 7:42 pm

    One could also ask,…..”how do we save the world from the black man?”
    Simple answer,….quit interfering and let them do what they do.
    The issue will correct itself in no time.

    Before the white man civilized the world, its population was half a billion and the average lifespan was 25 years. White men have increased human-years by 42x (14×3). Nearly everything you own and everything you know, if anything, was the invention or discovery of a white man. White men named every continent and ocean because they discovered them all. They founded nearly every country on earth including India, twice.

    Why all the emphasis on white MEN? White women historically have been just as or more racially tribalistic as white men. Look at historic photos of brown vs board of education. Most of the wrathfilled faces of white parents tormenting the black students were women. Most black men were lynched because white women cried wolf. White women organized lynch parties and lynch greeting cards they sent to family.

    Of course if the identity politics players were honest about coming after white women too, they wouldn’t be nearly as accepted.
