As if these were bad things! Perhaps ALL Americans should strive to think and act the same way “whites” (as defined in this article) do.

From the article, Whiteness, Talking About Race:

If you identify as white, acknowledging your white racial identity and its privileges is a crucial step to help end racism. Facing your whiteness is hard and can result in feelings of guilt, sadness, confusion, defensiveness, or fear. Dr. Robin DiAngelo coined the term white fragility to describe these feelings as “a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves.” Since white people “live in a social environment that insulates them from race-based stress,” whites are rarely challenged and have less of a tolerance to race-based stress.

    A more erudite way of excusing rather than trying to clean up those areas of black culture that the prevailing culture finds…unacceptable. From decriminalizing and, now, normalizing through media glorification, those areas we’ve failed to effectively deal with it’s almost as if we’re trying to say that it’s useless to try and we should just embrace it, accept its being part of our lives from now on.

    There we are, 13% of our population, more or less, has just about taken control of the country’s mores and morals. Let’s see how this attempt to move to a more hedonistic and less productive society rubs up against not only the white but the Asian and Latinx cultures as those ‘white’ fallibilities are what they came here for too.

    Have you posted the above graphic next door too?

      One wonders, the black community held the majority of white traits clear up till the 60s, some traits even more so than whites.

      Why the change to what we have now? Rev King’s message has been completely flipped. Why?
      Truly not understanding this. What was it from LBJ’s Great Society that caused blacks to change? A handful of a few radicals?
      gee wiz

        The welfare floodgates opened up and one got paid for just sitting home and voting Democrat. The various welfare payments, and the side payments the majority of folks don’t know about, coupled with the ability to work side jobs without fear of getting your benefits trimmed makes the prospect of not having to call in late to a job inviting.

            Well that’s one but things like working construction, lawn services, pickup jobs where businessmen call and pay them cash for hourly work, trash hauling – there’s a spectrum of them – and since no one wants to touch the entire issue it goes on and on. By now touching that 3rd rail would cause a flood of problems.

          …and the welfare floodgates are not just open to the low income blacks

          The upper class blacks take advantage of welfare also

            It’s a gimmick, the upper black crust, especially the political ones, feed off of the lower class blacks like parasite on livestock. I watched it happen a dozen waysand the black sheep let it happen, they don’t feel bad about a black parasite feeding off of them, at least the parasite be black.

    Today is National white privilege day, and even with three extra months, I am still scrambling to put my privilege papers together, write and submit my checks with the proper postage and insurance on them before midnight tonight.
    And that’s just for an extension. Getting tired of my white privilege

    What To Read Instead Of ‘White Fragility’

    https://thefederalist.com/2020/07/15/what-to-read-instead-of-white-fragility/

    This false narrative that places slavery at the center of American history, rather than our imperfect struggle to realize our founding ideals, will be cemented unless people speak out. In addition to brushing up on the insidious logic behind critical race theory, it’s going to be necessary to improve our historical understanding to fight these attempts to tear the country down.

    Doing the Real Work

    With that in mind, here’s a list of books and other resources that will help put race and American history in their proper perspective. This list of books will not be comforting to contemporary conservative or Christian worldviews. Even if historical truths generally vindicate American ideals, that doesn’t excuse the blood-soaked betrayal of those ideas that have occurred in the nearly 250 years since. Part of the reason these ahistorical narratives about race are taking hold so swiftly is that most of the country has only confronted the horrors of slavery and racism in the abstract.

    As James Baldwin has observed, “the reason for this ignorance is that a knowledge of the role these people [African-Americans] played—and play—in American life would reveal more about America to Americans than Americans wish to know.” Prepare to be uncomfortable and remember that you can handle challenging facts, ideas, and opinions. Remember you’re not the one asking people to join a cult — the goal is to be more empathetic and informed, and you should be prepared to change your mind about some things.

    List of books follows.

    The Black Privilege Complex
    By Deborah C. Tyler – July 15, 2020

    The superiority complex is an ego-defensive, compensatory mental disorder that has been continuously researched in modern psychology for over one hundred years. A superiority complex can become established in the psychology of individuals who regard themselves as possessing some form of mental supremacy over others. The complex is a disorder of antisocial privilege in that the inflated self-image plays out in the social environment in relationships with perceived inferiors. The complex demands recognition of the claimed specialness and prevents the afflicted from entering into a mutually respectful relationship with anyone who challenges their self-image of superiority.

    Apparently there is absolutely nothing white people can do to satisfy their accusers or atone for the crime and affliction of being white, thus being born with an irreversible and corrupted gene for committing atrocities. Whites cannot atone for admiring the culture which produced millions of great works of art and music, incredible inventions on terra firma, on the sea, and in the air/atmosphere…then that makes whites free to say, “SO WHAT,” to their accusations. If you have committed the ultimate crime and can go no lower, then that leaves a person free to simply opt out of everything including the guilt these specious accusations were supposed to produce. Believing any of the unscientific mumblings of the joyless folk who want to make whites guilty enough to bow down and kiss their feet and begging for forgiveness is completely unnecessary.

    My suggestion to black supremacists is–if you hate Western Culture/Civilization/white Caucasians–stop using all products and inventions created by whites and white culture. No more cell phones, no books, no cars, no planes, no elevators, no clothing or jewelry made on a machine, no food that is processed on machinery created by whites. You get the picture…no nothing that was not created by black African culture. Reject it all.

    We’ve already heard what the answer would be to that suggestion…black Africans invented everything valuable the world has ever known. They invented the Christianity they now reject…you know, Jesus was a black African; present-day Jews are usurpers and not real Jews because Jews were originally black Africans; Beethoven was a black African and Cleopatra and countless others who contributed to the Western culture they now reject.

    It’s all so convoluted as to be completely ludicrous and totally tiresome. So, uh, no thanks! I opt out!

    Reading through Stella’s and Lucille’s list of books, some analyzing the current phenomenon, all meant to initiate thought, search for knowledge, and reflection.

    Curious.
    Listening today to Joshua Phillip, Epoch Times – “social justice” was/is a term coined by that guy named Mao.

    You know, the Communist guy, who removed religion and the concept of a Living Lord who is Higher than the Party Leader, which, of course, removes the moral restraints from treating others, and the lives of others, as important as your life, but merely as bothers.

    “Social justice” would rectify things without the need for a Living Lord, based on the words and teachings of the Party Leader (Mao’s Little Red Book, now Xi’s grand something or other).

    Winnie-the-Pooh always said “Oh bother.”

    The Washington Examiner has written about this with an outrageous tone, including the following:

    “These “aspects and assumptions” include but are not limited to “rugged individualism,” respect for authority, being polite, and even punctuality. The graphic continues, claiming that white people place a premium on hard work, competitive drive, the “nuclear family,” objectivity, the “scientific method,” self-reliance, and hope.
    The obvious implication here is that nonwhites (blacks, Latinos, Asians, and others) are monolithic, lawless, impolite, selfish, lazy, apathetic, irrational, backwards, dependent, and hopeless.”
