Turbans, Hoodies, and Misdirected American Aggression

Turbans, Hoodies, and Misdirected American Aggression | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it
Maybe the Sikh Shooting and the Trayvon Martin shooting aren't so different after all. Maybe all the lives that were lost were victims of misdirected American aggression against those who choose not to conform.

Scot Nakagawa: Dismantling the Fulcrum of White Supremacy

Scot Nakagawa: Dismantling the Fulcrum of White Supremacy | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

Race, according to activist and writer Scot Nakagawa, was an idea created originally to justify the enslavement of a people, and has displayed pernicious staying power in the centuries since. That's why, as Nakagawa explains in this video with Laura Flanders, he believes that his liberation and the liberation of all people of color in the United States is tied to the liberation of African-Americans. For Nakagawa, anti-black racism is "the fulcrum of white supremacy."

When Did Being ‘Black And Proud’ Become Racist?

When Did Being ‘Black And Proud’ Become Racist? | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

Yes, apparently in the mind of the Neo-Negro, it is segregationism to acknowledge the race of a sister or a brother because mainstream media doesn’t do the same. If they are American, the Neo-Negro claims, then that is all that matters.

Research on Racial Diversity’s Value and the University of Texas Case

Research on Racial Diversity’s Value and the University of Texas Case | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

One issue raised in recent Supreme Court decisions dealing with racial desegregation in education under the term “affirmative action” is whether such desegregation has significant educational benefits that validate it under our current mostly individualistic and backtracking court decisions dealing with what is in fact systemic racism.

Aurora, “Whiteness”, and the Double-Standard of Deviance

Aurora, “Whiteness”, and the Double-Standard of Deviance | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

The moment I learned the identity of the shooter behind the Aurora massacre (read white male), I knew how the story would go. James Holmes would immediately be subjected to amateur psychiatric diagnoses — he would be “sick”, “insane”, “sociopathic”. I imagined headlines just like this — ” What Does a Killer Think? Is the Colorado shooter delusional, depressed, or psychotic? And how do we stop the next one?”

The Origins Of Racism

The Origins Of Racism | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

A criticism often flung at evolutionary studies of human behaviour is that, in revealing the origins of the human psyche's darkest aspects, they might substantiate our worst traits. The hysteria over sociobiology arose from concerns that a biological understanding of human behaviour and society would be used to justify racism, sexism, and various other forms of prejudice.

Fists of Freedom: An Olympic Story Not Taught in Schools

Fists of Freedom: An Olympic Story Not Taught in Schools | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

It's been almost 44 years since Tommie Smith and John Carlos took the medal stand following the 200-meter dash at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City and created what must be considered the most enduring, riveting image in the history of either sports or protest. But while the image has stood the test of time, the struggle that led to that moment has been cast aside.

George Zimmerman and God-Sponsored Racism

Zimmerman's theological argument for killing Trayvon Martin makes total sense to me in that I actually believe that Zimmerman has convinced himself of what he has verbally stated -- that this is God's plan.

The white racist guide to writing history | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

All the world is a white stage - Even though whites have never been more than a third of mankind, white history is what matters. Thousands of years of history in India, China, Africa and so on do not matter apart from their Colonial Period and Contributions to Mankind. But throw in a few token chapters so you can put “world” in your title.

Fear of a Black President

Fear of a Black President | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

That a country that once took whiteness as the foundation of citizenship would elect a black president is a victory. But to view this victory as racism’s defeat is to forget the precise terms on which it was secured, and to ignore the quaking ground beneath Obama’s feet.

Cultural Miseducation: Knowledge, Power and Ethnic Studies

Cultural Miseducation: Knowledge, Power and Ethnic Studies | AntiRacism & Privilege | Scoop.it

This summer, Tucson students, educators, and activist did something rebellious: they celebrated books. These weren’t just any books, of course. They were the books that had been deemed contraband by school authorities, vilified as tools of a curriculum that promotes ethnic hatred. In other words, they were works like Rethinking Columbus: The Next 500 Years, Mexican White Boy, the play Zoot Suit, and Like Water for Chocolate. Texts that aim to foster critical thinking, political curiosity, and other dangerous behaviors.

"I found the following speech by novelist Chimamanda Adichie to be interesting, in that it speaks to just what I’m talking about. There’s a message in their somewhere, but I’ll leave it up to you to figure it out. She tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding. "
