". . safe spaces, for racial sanctuart, . . not by black design, but as a byproduct of white racism. . [Black] schools, born of hate, [i.e.] white people’s deep desire to resist racial commingling."Here we have it: white people's desire to preserve their own racial identity by avoiding "commingling" is assumed to be an expression of racial hatred.
What is so terrible about white people wanting to preserve their own racial identity? Just because America's "progressive" white elites have embraced an ideology of racial self-denial and self-contempt, doesn't mean that all white Americans must do the same.
Race is NOT the "social construct", these political and academic elites would have us - and themselves - believe (except when you try dividing closely related peoples from the same subcontinent into different races, as the Nazis insanely did), but real and important. Not in the way that racial supremacists believe it is, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group identity, which the state clearly doesn't want its citizens to have, least they challenge its claim to "multi-ethnic nationhood".
We are an inherently and intensely tribal animal, which state and capital seek to define, control and exploit for their own power-political and commercial purposes, just as the state once sought to define and control our sexuality.
We urgently need to become aware what is going on, and why. See BLOG in which I elaborate.
