Where may a white person go and be welcomed?
‘In October, American University announced in its spring 2021 plan that students would have the option to apply for a temporary residential housing experience for half the semester. This program would welcome 1,250 full-time students to reside on campus from March to May 2021 in addition to the students already on campus for emergency housing, bringing the residential total to more than 1,500. The anticipated minimum cost for this experience, which includes housing, dining and health insurance, would be approximately $5,205.
While this brings excitement to many students who’ve been deprived of a proper freshman experience, it leaves me to question: Who does this plan really benefit? Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 15,000 lives were lost in the DMV and 75 percent of lives lost in D.C. were Black citizens. Though Black citizens in D.C. often suffered more than white citizens during national economic downfalls, the pandemic has magnified and worsened the existing racial inequalities in the city, such as food insecurity and lack of access to healthcare.
The large influx of predominantly affluent white students into D.C.’s “chocolate city,” a term that refers to its large population of Black citizens, could evoke similar effects of settler colonialism and negatively impact the community. Settler colonialism is a form of colonialism that replaces the original population with a new invasive species. The settler system takes over the space, resources and culture of the environment it encompasses, displacing the original population. Through the Mid-Semester Residential Experience, students are entering into populations that are already struggling to support themselves through the pandemic. ‘https://www.theeagleonline.com/article/2021/02/opinion-mid-semester-residential-experience-could-enforce-settler-colonialism
What is going on with these corporations that think they MUST become PC to reach their customers!? Coke is such a corporation that has gone stark raving mad with this PC stuff that it is now striving to convert its white employees into anti-racist employees even if that employee did not know they were racist!
‘In February of 2021, it leaked that Coca-Cola encouraged its employees to attend an anti-racism seminar led by the honorable Robin DiAngelo. Coca-Cola insists that the training wasn’t mandatory, but still, it’s pretty awful.’ Here is some of that teaching;
‘“To be less white is to:
- be less oppressive
- be less arrogant
- be less certain
- be less defensive
- be less ignorant
- be more humble
- break with apathy
- break with white solidarity”‘https://genzconservative.com/coca-cola-racist-anti-racism/
Note above that this teaching was taught by Robin DiAngelo. Who is she? According to Wikipedia ‘Robin Jeanne DiAngelo is an American author, consultant, and facilitator working in the fields of critical discourse analysis and whiteness studies.’ Can you imagine some one having a position where they teach WHITENESS!!!? All that can really be said here is to stop purchasing Coke and any related products produced by Coke. Perhaps this will WAKE up the ones in charge there at Coke out of their Wokeness!
The following links will take you to a couple of videos worth a watch by a conservative. The Left is out to destroy life as we once knew it. This means a change for both those conservatives who identify as born again Christians and those conservatives who do not.
‘They don’t want you to think critically, they don’t want you to read and now they are removing books they deem “hate speech”. How long until the Constitution and Declaration of Independence are ruled hate speech or terrorist manifestos?’

The non-conservative has a real problem with WHITE MEN and especially white men who have excelled in some profession. Whatever white privilege is Nancy Armour with USA Today thinks Tom Brady has it!
‘As Super Bowl weekend kicks off, one USA Today sportswriter doesn’t want anyone to miss that the game’s star attraction — Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 43-year-old quarterback Tom Brady — exudes the “height of white privilege.”
In her op-ed for the paper, Nancy Armour explains that her big problem with the six-time Super Bowl champ is his past support for former President Donald Trump — and his “ability” to not talk about it when he doesn’t want to. Or something.
Armour pointed out Brady’s “Make America Great Again hat in his locker, the flippant endorsement of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. Only when those ties became inconvenient did Brady decide he wanted to ‘stick to sports,’ and that he preferred to be a beacon of positivity rather than delve into society’s thorny ills.”
“How mighty white of him,” she added.’https://www.theblaze.com/news/tom-brady-white-privilege-trump-support?utm_source=theblaze-breaking&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20210205Trending-BradyWhitePrivilige&utm_term=ACTIVE%20LIST%20-%20TheBlaze%20Breaking%20News
‘Sticks and stones may break my bone, but words will never harm me!’ That is unless you are Muslim! In Illinois ‘Dima Ali called Dan Moroney a “white supremacist.” Moroney’s friend Matt Baron responded by likening Dima Ali to a terrorist. Baron has now been condemned for “Islamophobia,” why isn’t the District 200 school board apologizing for Moroney for Ali’s defamation of him? Because “white supremacist” is the acceptable smear that can be leveled at anyone and everyone who dissents from the Leftist agenda. No apology is necessary.’
“D200 board denounces member’s ‘Islamophobia,’” by Michael Romain, OakPark.com, January 6, 2021:
During a special board meeting held Dec. 22, members of the District 200 school board apologized to Oak Park resident Dima Ali and formally denounced comments made by D200 board member Matt Baron that many community members said caused harm to Ali and other Muslim and non-white Oak Parkers.
The controversy dates to a comment written by Ali in November under a Wednesday Journal news article about Oak Park Trustee Dan Moroney, which was posted to Facebook. In her comment, Ali called Moroney a white supremacist.
Baron, who knows Moroney, contacted Wednesday Journal and urged the paper to remove the Facebook comment before submitting an opinion piece to the paper in which he compared Ali’s comment to someone leaving duffle bags in public places — code for terrorism. Ali is Muslim, a fact that Baron subsequently said he did not know at the time he wrote the piece.
Baron issued a written apology roughly a week later, calling his analogy “far too intense” and “needlessly over-the-top as I sought to stir people in this community to push back on unfair character attacks.”
During brief comments made at a Dec. 3 Committee of the Whole meeting, Baron said his metaphor was “intended to provoke bystanders like those who click like or love in response to the white supremacist label,” before doubling down on what he called his “key point — let’s stop the racial identity politics.”
In her remarks made during the Dec. 22 special meeting, Ali said she was disappointed by the board’s delayed response to Baron’s comments and called for his resignation.
“An Islamophobic board member should not be sitting right now like this,” she said, adding that she felt the board failed its marginalized students and community members by not condemning Baron’s remarks more swiftly.
“We’re not terrorists,” said Ali, who is also an Oak Park and River Forest High School parent. “We are your neighbors. … We’re your friends. In this community, we don’t drop suspicious duffel bags, we drop off bags full of donations. We drop off food, soup to any sick friend and community member.”
After Ali’s remarks, D200 board President Sara Dixon Spivy read a statement on behalf of the board majority that “formally denounced” Baron’s opinion piece, adding that Baron also “failed to recognize the impact and harm” of his opinion piece in his subsequent board comments.
The board said Baron’s “racist and Islamophobic remarks directly conflict with this board’s belief in racial equity and inclusion,” adding that they have also “undermined ongoing efforts” made by the district to advance its mission of improving equity and inclusion, and creating a “culture of warmth” for all OPRF students and community members….’https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/01/illinois-school-board-denounces-member-for-islamophobia-for-responding-to-muslim-colleagues-false-claim?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=the_2021_01_11_jihad_watch_daily_digest&utm_term=2021-01-11
Is there really such a thing as ‘white privilege’!? I have been white all my life and never knew I held a certain privilege due to my skin colour. Now, that I know that I have this privilege I am being criticized for having it! Hmm. Well, in my home state ‘A new course that will take place at Iowa State will discuss diversity, social justice and culture and how it all can be expressed through art.
This course, titled “Diversity in Art,” is a one-credit art course that will meet the U.S. Diversity requirement for students that need it.’
‘This discussion-based course will not have any artwork assignments. Students have to be willing to think, talk and challenge themselves in order to develop visual analysis skills.
“We are trying to do it from a lens of current events, but because of that, it also brings historical social structures that marginalize people,” said Nancy Gebhart, graduate student of education and graduate teaching assistant for the Women’s and Gender Studies Department. “We talk about white privilege and try to emphasize critical whiteness and how we represent art through storytelling. We also talk about how white people will profit off of the stories of marginalized people but didn’t really share that experience.”’ https://www.iowastatedaily.com/news/iowa-state-university-ames-community-new-class-course-diversity-in-art-artwork-artists-united-states-diversity-requirement-credit-social-jusitce-culture-protest/article_2ed460a8-5cd3-11ea-8fc9-efe1f69e7fc8.html
Do you really think the students will be better prepared for the real world after taking this course? I suggest they read Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation sometime during this course!
