White People Are Also Victims Of Racism. I Have Been Multiple Times

By Rod Thomson

There’s a deeply inconvenient truth that the Black Lives Matter, Inc. left does not want Americans to hear. Anyone can be racist and anyone can be the victim of racism. We’ve seen this over the past months with multiple videos of black people attacking white people because they are white, even with police investigating some as hate crimes. The media doesn’t care to report those, but fortunately they are not the lone informational gatekeepers anymore.

This bookends with obvious racist acts against black people. The true number of incidents on both sides are small, but the point is they are on both sides and involve other ethnicities as well. This is just an ugly part of human nature — not a one-race-specific act, which is a racist assertion.

But you don’t need to be physically attacked — or even killed, as the young  man in Milwaukee was — to be the victim of racism.

I grew up in Flint, Michigan in the 1960s and 1970s. Flint was a racially divided city in those years, experiencing the riots of 1967 and general racial distrust. There was just a lot of racism to go around.

In elementary school, I was a majority but there was a sizable and growing minority of black kids. In around fifth or sixth grade — it was a long time ago — I was over and over again chased home by two black kids, one who was my size and one who was huge for our age. They made it abundantly clear they hated me because I was white. More than once they caught me. I recall being held down and punched under some bushes next to a corner house one time. I wasn’t the only kid to get this treatment, and pretty sure it went the other way, also.

Pretty ugly stuff and obviously reflecting what they heard in the home and by other adults and kids in their milieu. But I also remember some dads talking, frustrated with the rioting and destruction, and one of them said, “I’ll vote for any president who will send three shiploads of them back to Africa.” Also pretty ugly stuff.

We moved out of that neighborhood and to Flint Township before junior high began because of the fights I was getting in. By 1982, I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in journalism after working sometimes full-time while carrying a full load, just to get through. White privilege, you know.

In the late 1980s, we wanted to live in the Twin Cities and I applied and was interviewed for a job at the St. Paul Pioneer Press Dispatch newspaper. At the end of the interviews, I was sitting in the office of, I think, the Managing Editor, but I don’t recall for sure. He was an old-time newspaper guy with a jar of cigars on his desk and one in his mouth. And he let slip — and by slip, I mean he straight up told me — that I seemed like a good reporter and qualified, but I would not be getting the job because it was reserved for a minority journalist as part of affirmative action. I think he was trying to make me feel better, but it really didn’t.

For the second time, I had been victimized by people or a system for having white skin. I strongly suspect this happened more in my newspaper career, but I have no evidence of it.

While it is possible that whites face less racism than blacks, I strongly doubt that is the case in journalism and other fields dominated by leftists. But as I understand the current most woke thinking, which may change by the time this column is completed, “lived experiences” trump any of that data.

I don’t really believe that of course, because I operate in the realm of common sense. But the reality is I am far from alone in experiencing racism that is utterly counter to the dominant cultural narrative. My story, and thousands like it, put a stake in the heart of white privilege. I represent one bookend of the lie of white privilege and one-way racism in America. Sasha and Maya Obama already have the “lived experiences” representing the other bookend.

And in between the bookends? The lie remains a lie.

Ha Ha. My father was an Italian immigrant. I came back from Viet Nam, a draftee, worked my way through the U of I and my first job was as Sears. One day, they lined everybody up and told us that males and whites were going to be bypassed in the promotion scheme due to affirmative action. I decided the next time they asked me to throw away a year of my life risking my life in a shithole, I would decline.

He’s one of the Three Stooges, bka Sears, Robuck, & Mr. Co. One day Mr Co walked up and asked; “are you SERIOUS?”
“No, I’m Robuck, let’s play store!”

day after day after day evidence mounts for the continued proof of criminality, betrayal and treason of the socialist communist dem left. i demand the arrest, trials and execution of n pelosi, j biden, c schumer, k harris, little fetus Hunter, comey, mccabe, strzok, brennan, mueller, waters, green, jarrett, obamas, cliintons……end page one of ten.

The American population is comprised by approximately 6.5% black males. According to FBI statistics, this demographic commits over 52% of violent crime. Considering that even if half of this demographic or 3.25% are offenders..that would mean 3.25% of black males commit some 52% of all violent crime in the US. It is not racist to state these facts. I grew up in poverty but poverty did not result in my committing violent crime. Certainly covert racism by whites giving the black community a pass in living up to community standards is a fact. However, racist hate is passed on by families and there is no shortage of racist hate in the black community. Even as they murder their own..many are raised to believe all of their problems are the result of white oppression which simply is not true. It does not help that our marxist run public schools fuel their feelings of oppression…as America is constantly disparaged in a marxist effort to divide and conquer our nation. There will be no change in black racism as long as the black community refuses to see that no other country in the world offers the opportunities and freedoms to chart ones destiny as does America. It is a gift that needs to be cherished…but first it has to be accepted.

From Ignatious J Riley, as written in his diary in John Kennedy Tool’s “A Confederacy of Dunces”; “It has always been a regrettable aspect of human nature that people eventually and inevitably come to despise those who help them.”

For over 50 years blacks & people of color have been given preferential treatment in both education & employment. Affirmative Action has blanketed every sector & industry across the nation. Unconstitutional on its face, it specifically discriminates against white citizens & most specifically, white men. Literally trillions of tax dollars, redistributed, American wealth have funded welfare & public programs. Nowhere in the world has there ever been such a governmental, societal effort at social engineering. It came as a curative cap stone & good will gesture to the civil rights movement. Instead of equality & opportunity, it granted special & preferential treatment on the basis of race and sex. It lowered standards & mandated acceptance. Today we see the result, the unreasonable hatred of America & white people manifested by ignorant, senseless violence.

I want to be very clear & quite unambiguous. I’m done with black people & especially with the black community whatever that’s intended to mean. I will continue interfacing with black individuals, one at a time and, as they present themselves, but any good will & willingness to concede special consideration is gone for good. Some will say I have become a racist. If true, it is a position, attitude & posture taken in self-defense. I want no proximity to senseless violence, crime, drugs, self-perpetuating ignorance, poverty and filth. I no longer make any excuses for it, nor will I accept any responsibility.

If I may, I’ll attempt to agree from a different framework:

Self-destructive acts are a natural right.
Self-destructive acts have collateral damage.
Freedom of association is a natural right.
Ostracism is a mechanism for limiting exposure to the collateral effects of the one being ostracized.

If one is prevented from freely associating with whom one chooses and even forced to associate with self-destructive individuals, how can that one shield itself from said collateral damage?

This is the entirety of the problem, stated without racial terms being invoked at all.

26 trillion, to be precise. Have you gotten your thank you card? I certainly haven’t. For that considerable amount of treasure, we could have been standing on Mars about now. Instead, we find ourselves standing in Detroit, and not a peep of gratitude, to date.

I agree. In my job numerous times I was contacted by recruiters looking for a femsle black person to fill a job. Tsat was the main criteria

Rod–
There is no doubt that Blacks now are far more racist than Whites–only this does not fit the narrative. Of course, Affirmative Action turned out al wrong, and I still remember the pathetic sight of Hubert Humphrey protesting, “But that’s not what I meant.”

For those who denounce white privilege, they should be reminded our Founding Fathers were all white. It was our Founding Fathers who risked their lives to produce our Constitution and it was tens of thousands of white soldiers who fought in the Civil War in order to free the slaves.

Without those mentioned above non-whites would not have the privilege of freedom of speech. Unfortunately, the non-white who speak of white privilege are too ignorant or, due to their sinister agenda. too corrupt to realize how foolish they appear.

i would enjoy sharing my story in College Athletics/Higher Education if you would like. Reach out and let me know… I believe you have my email.
