Just read an article on http://personalliberty.com about black students at two colleges in California that want “separate but equal” housing facilities. Seems they want to be free from “Microaggression” and “racially insensitive” conversation. Aren’t these some of the things that all that political correctness (cultural Marxism) was supposed to have taken care of? We’ve been told for years now that you dare not “offend” this group or that group or think, say, or do anything that might somehow be construed as making the lives of minorities more difficult.
About the only group that it is permissible to offend nowadays is white Christians. But that’s okay. It’s been open season on them for several decades now and, unfortunately, most of them don’t seem to grasp the fact that they are in the cultural crosshairs of just about everybody else and everybody else is eagerly awaiting a chance to pull the trigger. The white Christians still don’t have a clue. And I’m not holding my breath until they wake up!
But I did get a kick out of the above mentioned article in light of all the problems caused over the decades by the “civil rights” movement and the frenetic energy of its promoters to make sure everyone was forcefully integrated and that “separate but equal” was not only a “racist” policy, but it was, in the eyes of the liberation theologians and other useful idiots, downright blasphemous. To have even dared suggest it simply put you beyond the pale of acceptable humanity.
After all, didn’t the Supreme Court rule back in 1954 that “separate but equal” school facilities stamped an inherent “badge of inferiority” on black students? That being the case, forced integration had to be pushed with all possible and deliberate speed. It was guaranteed to create “class” (racial strife) that way and that’s really what it was all about. And the political correctness we were told would magically erase all these problems was never really intended to do that. It was intended to intensify them.
If you want to read an excellent little book about this then read Alan Stang’s It’s Very Simple–the true story of civil rights. It was published way back in 1965 but I think you might be able to find some old copies on Amazon. Mr. Stang (now deceased) gave us excellent information about the “civil rights” movement–so called–that the “news” media never touched and never will. The Powers that Be have deemed, in their collectivist wisdom, that we are much better off not being aware of all this. And the “news” media has labored assiduously for decades to make sure we were not.
The “civil rights” movement caused lots of anguish and lots of problems for both blacks and whites. The protests, marches, demonstrations, shootings and all the rest set the stage for riots in Watts and Detroit, and more recently for Ferguson and Baltimore and other places, and a handful of race-baiting ambulance chasers have made millions out of it by inflating every perceived wrong into almost an international incident. It has been the quintessential example of Marxist class struggle in America. And after all this and all the supposed “gains” made by integrating everyone forcefully, here we have a group of black students in California that have decided they now want segregated housing–one of the main things the “civil rights” movement was supposedly created to deliver them from. If it makes you wonder what it was really all about, it should. Force integration on everyone so blacks can decide that they’d rather be segregated.
If it was “racist” for whites to segregate fifty years ago then is it now “racist” for blacks to do the same thing? You already know the answer to that one. It’s okay for me but not for you! I wonder what would happen if a batch of white students at these schools held protests and marches demanding that black housing be integrated. Wouldn’t that be a hoot!
Don’t misunderstand–if the black kids want their own separate housing that’s great. Let ’em have it. I just wonder why it’s not “racist” for them to want it but it s for white kids to want the same thing.
