Are Whites Racially Oppressed?

John Blake, CNN, March 4, 2011

They marched on Washington to reclaim civil rights. They complained of voter intimidation at the polls. They called for ethnic studies programs to promote racial pride. They are, some say, the new face of racial oppression in this nation — and their faces are white.

- A Texas group recently formed the “Former Majority Association for Equality” to offer college scholarships to needy white men. Colby Bohannan, the group’s president, says white men don’t have scholarship options available to minorities. “White males are definitely not a majority” anymore, he says.

Some white commentators are unapologetic about this racial anxiety.

Peter Brimelow, author of “Alien Nation: Common Sense About America’s Immigration Disaster,” asserts that much of white America’s anxiety derives from living under a black president and changing demographics. Diversity, he says, “is not strength.”

Brimelow’s website, VDARE.COM, has been described as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that tracks extremist groups in the U.S. Some may see him as extreme, but Brimelow argues in his columns that more white Americans are moving toward his stance on immigration and other issues.

He cites as proof the rise of the Tea Party movement and the racial makeup of Beck’s march on Washington. He says more whites recognize, even if it’s only on a subliminal level, that they have common interests to defend.

“Of course, they would deny this, quite sincerely, if you put it to them because the idea of whites defending their interests as whites is quite new,” he says. “Americans are trained to think that any explicit defense of white interests is ‘racist.’ ”

James Edwards, host of the “Political Cesspool” radio show, isn’t shy about naming those interests. He says white Americans have become the “dispossessed majority” and that coming demographic changes may turn the United States into a “Third-World flop-house.” Edwards, who is considered a white nationalist by the Southern Poverty Law Center, says whites must organize like other stigmatized groups.

“There is nothing wrong for Jewish organizations to promote the self-interest of Jews or black organizations to promote the interest of blacks,” he says. “There is no organization to stand up to advance the interests of the dispossessed majority.”

Those white interests have been compromised by what he sees as the “preferential treatment” blacks have received in the job market to compensate for slavery, Edwards says.

“Whatever mistakes might have been made in our pasts, they have not only been corrected, but they’ve been overcompensated for,” he says.

Now whites are victims of pervasive racism, Edwards says.
“They’re the victims of it every day. Anything a white conservative does that a liberal doesn’t like is called racism.”

Both Brimelow and Edwards reject outright the Southern Poverty Law Center’s description of their organizations as extremist.

Plante, who says he grew up in a Chicago home with a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. on the wall, attended both Beck’s rally and a follow-up rally by Jon Stewart, host of the Daily Show.

Stewart and fellow Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert held their “March to Keep Fear Alive” on the National Mall two months after Beck’s rally. Stewart said he held the rally for people tired of the media portraying America as a divided country.

“The Beck crowd was no more white than the Jon Stewart rally, but nobody in the news media described the Stewart crowd as overwhelmingly white,” Plante says.

One prominent observer of American culture suggests all Americans — white, black and every other minority — should be concerned about the future. Robert Putnam, author of the celebrated book, “Bowling Alone,” says his studies of multiracial neighborhoods in America suggest that more diversity doesn’t initially create more tolerance. It can erode community.

In his 2007 book, “E Pluribus Unum: Diversity and Community in the Twenty-first Century,” Putnam says his studies of diverse communities show that in the short run, its members tend to expect the worst, distrust neighbors and withdraw.

“Residents of all races tend to ‘hunker down,’ ” Putnam writes. “Trust (even of one’s own race) is lower, altruism and community cooperation rarer, friends fewer.”

Is this America’s future?

Dueling mass rallies in Washington? Dueling complaints of racial persecution? Dueling versions of ethnic history?

    Conservative news outlets ran a number of stories last summer highlighting an incident from the 2008 elections, in which activists from the New Black Panther Party appeared to be intimidating voters at a polling place. Those claims were never proven.

    “Those claims were never proven”?

  2. Matt Weber

    The idea that whites are racially oppressed must be causing our masters some headache for them to attempt to defuse the idea.

  3. Kirt Higdon

    So now whites too can be the whining victims of racial oppression. Everyone else claims to be the victim of racism so why not whites?

    “Is this America’s future?

    Dueling mass rallies in Washington? Dueling complaints of racial persecution? Dueling versions of ethnic history?”

    I guess this is America’s future and since I’ve never been a victim of racial oppression, I’m not part of it. I’ve suspected that for a long time and I’ll continue to enjoy myself with my family and friends, leaving the mass rallies, the complaints of racial persecution, the versions of ethnic history, and above all the whining to the whiners.

    Yes, that is what multiculturalism inevitably leads to. Balkanization. Sad, but true.

    In reply to:

    • More colleges are offering courses in “Whiteness Studies” as white Americans cope with becoming what one commentator calls a “dispossessed majority group.”

    An example of “Whiteness Studies”:

    Mon. 22 Sept. White Privilege
    Bennett, “Tea and Sympathy: Liberals and Other White Hopes”
    Ignatiev, “The Point is Not to Interpret Whiteness but to Abolish It,” found at
    Thompson, Essay Review

    H/T: A3P

  6. Matt Weber

    Yes, the first thing I thought when reading about ‘whiteness studies’ was ‘that’s not what the author thinks it is’.

  7. Thaddeus

    Well, how convenient for you, Kirt, that you have “never been a victim of racial oppression.” I suppose that’s all that matters then, yes? If it hasn’t happened to you, then that’s the only thing that you should think about, right? Forget anyone else. Screw them. What loyalty to do you have to any other whites who have, in fact, been victims of racial oppression? As long as you’re doing well, then anyone who complains is a “whiner.” Just “enjoy yourself with your family and friends” and let the nation, the race, anything that doesn’t personally affect you go to the dogs.

    You know, the left uses “selfishness” as a smear on the right for political reasons, but Kirt’s reaction exemplifies where the term is actually a valid criticism. It is people like this, who have blithely enjoyed their gated-community lifestyles while their culture is falling apart around them, who have let their race be undermined, their civilization slowly destroyed, who are nearly as much of a problem as the races who have waged a war against us.

  8. Weaver


    I think Kirt has taken to a different social structure than race. He isn’t guilty of individualism, I suspect.

    To better understand where this anti-White problem stems from, see Manning Johnson’s “Color, Communism, & Common-Sense”. He was a former Negro-Communist (a defector from the ‘Communist Party, U.S.A.). His pamphlet was written in 1958, and reveals how race was/is being used against European-Americans (via a racial takeover of our nation).

    Basically, he denounces the “Civil Rights”-movement as a fear-tactic to promote false guilt in Caucasians. (It’s definitely worth your perusal, for those of you that’ll take the time to read these brief chapters. He includes articles taken from Communist publications, that confide their scheme to destroy the U.S. with ethnic agitation/bigotry.)

    I’m a 40-year-old White male in California; and it’s my concern that Blacks learn some real history, as opposed to the Marxist-endoctrination they receive from the media & revisionist school-systems. Then (maybe) they’ll get off our backs about things we’re not at fault for.

  10. Andrew

    P.S. (not to be a glory-whore, here):

    Blacks, Martin Luther King is not your savior. Manning Johnson (above) mentions in his essay that it was people like King who sold out Blacks in exchange for fame.

    Glenn Beck (who purports to be White, though is a traitorous Jew) cites Communist Saul Alinsky as Obamaboo’s mentor, yet excludes the fact that Alinsky (an admitted Satanist) previously mentored Martin Luther King & Rosa Parks too.

    “‘Fox’-News” takes whatever side they want at the moment; i.e. – 1: omitting Ron Paul’s leading primary-results (in 2008), 2: denying him equal exposure on their network, 3: never apologizing after helping to promote John McCain/Sarah Palin to the R.N.C. in November, 4: making the 2008 neo-con. candidates hosts on ‘Fox’-shows, and 5: using Ron & Rand Paul’s names to subvert the ‘Tea Party’-movement away from an Independent-stance.

    You want to find the source of racism, Blacks (etc.)? Look to the Zionists, who head all of your special-interest groups. Once you rid America (etc.) of Whites, you’re next on their list of eliminations. Wake up, idiots!

    Signed, The Management.

  11. Kirt Higdon

    Thaddeus, you’re a hoot! My gated community lifestyle? I wouldn’t live in a gated community if I could afford to and I’m far from being able to afford to. My entire adult life I’ve lived in lower middle class to just middle class ethnically mixed neighborhoods and I live in one such now. It’s worth noting, however, that the overwhelming majority of those who live in upper class gated communities are white, while a highly disproportionate number of blacks live in that very different sort of gated community known as prison. At the very least that might call into question how affirmative action and entitlements work in actual practice, but if you really think that what whites need are an NAACP and an SPLC and if your role models are really Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Mark Potok, well go right ahead – without me.

    And I somehow owe other whites loyalty because they may claim oppression and have, out of thousands of genes, a handful more in common with me that someone else does? As the father of a family I have an obligation to my kids and other close relatives and as a Christian I have an obligation to help at least some of those less fortunate than me. But do I owe greater loyalty to (for example) Tony Blair and Bill Clinton, whose ethnic background is about the same as mine, than to my next door neighbor, who is a Mexican, or to my parish priest, who is Tex-Mex? I don’t think so. I’m a Christian, not a biological determinist.

  12. Thaddeus

    Kirt’s words confirm my point. “My kids and other close relatives…” “As a Christian I have an obligation…” Me, me, me. Who cares about the culture around me? As long as my little island is fine, and my ego is stroked, what else matters?

    Well, Kirt, as your country, and the West as a whole, go down the tubes because of the racial change that you seem to be self-absorbed to be concerned with, watch how long it is before it comes knocking at even your door. Today, Detroit is a hell zone; tomorrow, it will be wherever you live. Or your children live.

    And you know, it’s precisely because of the diminishing self-confidence and racial identity of whites that abominations like “Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Mark Potok” are able to undermine this nation. If a few more whites started caring about their racial civilization, and looked to something bigger than their own little gardens, then we wouldn’t be in this mess.

  13. Kirt Higdon

    There is no such thing as any kind of collective self-confidence; it’s a contradiction in terms. And any kind of self-confidence is not promoted by encouraging a person to see himself as a victim of oppression. Finally, civilization is not determined by genetics. If it is, what’s there to worry about? The genes haven’t changed. But Thaddeus, you go right ahead with your crusade to save white civilization by encouraging whites to develop a culture of victimization. I’m sure it will work out just as well as it has for the blacks.

  14. Thaddeus

    The “culture of victimization” as you term it (which is really just “Doing whatever works and saying whatever works to gain power”) is working out very well indeed for all of the victim groups. Jews, blacks, women, and gays are gaining absolute cultural and political supremacy. And the few areas where they do not numerically dominate are irrelevant, because the white men who still dominate the business world do nothing for their race or their civilization.

    And what, instead, Kirt, is your recipe for saving white civilization? Or do you really not care if the world become a mulatto jungle and descends slowly but steadily into one big Third World republic, with whites at the lowest point of the ladder, neither having the traditional power that they once had, nor any power under the new culture either, because the racially conscious members of other groups WILL lord it over them, and will deny them even basic equal rights — as is already beginning to happen; witness:

    Are you honestly so self-absorbed that you will heedlessly watch the complete eradication of the European people and its culture, so long as you’re comfortable in your little garden for the extent of your individual lifetime?

    Well, at least you might care about this — your own sons, and certainly your grandsons, WILL be discriminated against, will be second-class citizens in their own country, and will be pushed aside in favour of people who are members of races that do care about their own (i.e., every race other than white). So your selfish apathy will, in the end, even undermine the few people you seem to care about — your own personal bloodline.

  15. Kirt Higdon

    Thaddeus, you are truly delusional if you see blacks as dominant over the world. As far as Jews, women, and gays are concerned, the overwhelming majority of these are white.

  16. Thaddeus

    I clearly said “beginning to happen” in reference to blacks. Beginning — you know? Not “achieved” but “going in that direction.” And as the linked article illustrates, going in that direction quite quickly.

    Jew are most certainly NOT “white.”

    As for women and gays, the point is that they mobilize according to their own group interests (though obviously no one does this more aggressively than Jews), which gives the members of those groups increasing power. White heterosexual men, on the other hand, because of attitudes like yours, do not; hence we’re declining toward not only into a minority, but a minority that won’t even have the collective power that other minority groups have had. That means your own progeny.

  17. Kirt Higdon

    Jew are most certainly NOT “white.” – Thaddeus

    What exactly do those quote marks mean? That white is being used in some esoteric sense other than the way it is used in normal conversation? Because Jews are definitely classified as white in submitting employment and academic racial statistics and are not eligible as Jews for government mandated affirmative action. (Obviously they don’t need it.) As far as mobilizing according to group interests is concerned, that’s sort of a tautology. Any group promotes its common interests as it sees those. Whites and specifically white males continue to dominate the top positions in society and government even if you arbitrarily exclude Jews. Latinos dominate the ranks of day laborers and restaurant workers while blacks dominate the ranks of prison inmates. I have a hunch that not many whites would figure that their social or economic position would be improved by a change of race to black or mestizo. Most important, I don’t look on the human condition as a zero sum game to be determined by genetic loyalty.
