‘Whiteness Studies’ Prof Tells Students ‘Dangerous’ to Judge Blacks as Individuals

America is moving backwards on race, but not in the way the mainstream media would have you believe.

Case in point: during a guest lecture at Boston University this week, University of Washington “whiteness studies” Professor Robin DiAngelo delivered a speech in which she made a series of claims that would have been repugnant to those who fought and sacrificed to ban segregation and drive racial discrimination out of society.

The College Fix has the scoop:

DiAngelo’s comments were couched during a section of her talk titled “What Does It Mean To Be White” that discussed colorblindness and those who say “I was taught to treat everyone the same, or some version of that.”

“If you are being honest, you’ve probably said it,” she told the audience, then added that in reality no one in the room was taught to treat everyone the same. “Your parents could lecture you to do it [but] you don’t do it, you can’t do it, there is no human objectivity.”

She said when she hears people talk about treating everyone the same, it tells her “this person doesn’t understand basic socialization. This person doesn’t understand culture. This person is not self-aware” […]

“My friend Erin Trent Johnson … she says, ‘When I hear a white person say this, what I am thinking is: ‘This is a dangerous white person. This is a white person who is going to need to deny my reality.’”

As any American with a modicum of civic literacy ought to recognize immediately, this is the opposite of what Dr. Martin Luther King preached:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

But no, this white leftist knows better:

I want to be clear that as I stand up here with authority and a voice on this topic, I’m reinforcing whiteness and the centrality of the white view,” she said. “I’d like to be a little less white, which means a little less oppressive, oblivious, defensive, ignorant and arrogant.”

Oh, and she says that because of “implicit bias,” her words as a white woman carried greater weight in the eyes of white audience members than a black speaker would have. Which calls to mind another of of my favorite quotes, from Edmund Burke:

[H]e that accuses all mankind of corruption ought to remember that he is sure to convict only one.

In other words: speak for yourself, Prof.

This appalling speech highlights something Dennis Prager likes to say: racism ultimately boils down to the belief that race matters. Conservatives judge individuals by their character, deeds, and values; liberals are obsessed with people’s skin color, nationality, sex, who they’re attracted to, and countless other qualities by which people can be reduced to faceless voting blocs to be pumped with resentment.

Which one do you think leads to a fairer, more harmonious society?
