Duke prof: White people are the problem, racism everywhere!

President Barack Obama speaks about the Affordable Care Act, Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, at Prince George

A Duke sociology professor gave a lecture at Dartmouth College in which he lambasted the idea that America has entered a post-racial society, or made any progress on racial issues whatsoever.

“We are not post-racial,” said Eduardo Bonilla-Silva in his lecture, as reported by The Dartmouth. “This ideology is suave but deadly.”

Phrases used by white people such as ‘I have black friends,’ are clear indications of covert racism, he said.

The lecture was titled “The Color of Color-Blindness: Whites’ Race Talk in ‘Post-Racial’ America.” Dartmouth’s website described the lecture as an attempt to demonstrate that white people have been naive about the continued existence of racism since long before President Obama’s election.

“White America has believed a version of post-racialism since the early 1980s. … The bulk of the talk will revolve around the examination of ‘color-blind racism’ or whites’ race talk in the contemporary period,” reported The College Fix.

The notion that America is entering a post-racial period is “sincere fiction,” according to Bonilla-Silva.

Unfortunately for the professor, minorities aren’t buying it. An increasing percentage of blacks say racism is on its way out, admitted Bonilla-Silva.

His views on racism were well-received by Dartmouth students, however.

“I thought he was dead on,” said Melissa Padilla, a Dartmouth student, in an interview with The Dartmouth. “We push race under the carpet. I guess we’re trying to mask it.”

Ironically, Bonilla-Silva said that it was wrong to generalize a negative experience with a few people to members of an entire race. Whether we has considered taking his own advice is unknown–he did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Racial Context

    We think we’re the most confused black people on the planet…No! Blacks from other parts of the globe are more whitewashed than we are. Specifically, blacks from the Caribbean, Latin-America, and Africa. They criticize us for talking about race so much, while ignoring the rampant racism of their homelands. Colorblind Racism created post-racialism on college campuses all over this country back in the 1990s. It began as a counter to perceived racial bias against so-called minorities(racist term). But, it morphed into something else, an attack on free speech. So, if a blackwoman complained about whitewomen lusting after blackmen, she was labeled a bigot, close-minded, etc. This the ugly truth, both parties are racist. Liberals want to keep us hot and bothered about race, yet, push race-mixing more than anything. Conservatives want us to be responsible citizens, yet, they defend George Zimmerman to the max…F**k Them Both! My beliefs are more conservative than liberal, always have been. But, neither party is serious when dealing with our issues and concerns.

      True. And I’ve encountered many of them in the last decade. Brazil, The Dominican Republic, Cuba, Columbia, Mexico, et al. All have Black populations, but there is a sinister issue of being ashamed of being Black that permeates in many of these countries. And for those who are of African descent, they participate in their own racial oppression via acceptance of the majority white views in those countries. It’s a conundrum, but they must face themselves in the mirror first and SEE THEIR TRUE REFLECTION before they can deal with the bigotry that has kept many in poverty.

    We need to wake up and stop buying into this multiculturalism, colorblind utopia where everyone regardless of race will be accepted. We are NOT living in ”post racial” America because America still has deep wounds from years of chattel slavery, Black Codes, segregation, Jim Crow laws, Japanese internment camps, etc. In order to get rid of racism, we need to face the issue and have open discussions about race and how it affects the lives of minorities and Whites.
