I know that we all are familiar with the phrase “separate but equal,” suffice to say that every elementary school student is drilled with this phrase ad infinitum whilst lectured at length about 1960′s segregation conditions. All of these lectures are about building up a fashionable White guilt complex as preemptive justification for racial reparations. Well, its more like a demand than a justification or even a suggestion, but we’re not going to talk about that right now…
Dawn Hewitt of the Herald Times in Bloomington, Indiana has reported on a unique Indiana University Alumni Club which promotes the interests and well-being of one distinct racial group. Chartered in 1981, the Neal-Marshall Alumni Club explicitly serves the interests of African-American students at Indiana University. Among other goals, the Neal-Marshal Alumni Club works specifically to bring African-American students together in greater unity, award scholarships to African-American students, and maximize success opportunities. More specifically, the Neal-Marshall Alumni Club seeks to, “… address the need for cohesiveness among African-American graduates of IU, who can both network with each other for common causes and facilitate and encourage enrollment of black students at IU…” It should be quite obvious that the Neal-Marshal Alumni Club loves, respects, and celebrates African heritage and unity.
I know what you’re thinking, so let me head it off at the pass… I think it is great that the African community is able to exercise self-determination and work towards improving the condition of their community. Self determination is a concept which is a core tenet of my personal convictions. In fact, it is something which I work try very hard to promote in every day life to improve the well-being, morale, and self-image of White people everywhere.
I suppose it would be more than a little bit childish to point out the age old axiom which states that “what is good for the goose is good for the gander” and pitch a tirade about double standards– or would it? However, we’re not really talking about double standards because this would imply that two separate groups are allowed enjoyment of similar privileges and rights in a segregated fashion.
On April 7th, 2012 there was a heritage celebration in downtown Bloomington, Indiana. This celebration was advertised as “Rally for Heritage!” The organizer and promoter of this event (yours truly…) invited the citizens of Bloomington to come out for a celebration of Southern and Confederate heritage. The message was very simple, and quite clear, “Celebrate your White heritage, be proud of your White identity!”
Imagine my surprise when I was met with great opposition by members of the Anti-Fascist (AntiFa) and LGBTQ communities. What could be more innocuous than a message of love and celebration? Jeering cries of racist, Nazi, KKK, and “go kill yourself!” seemed to be the extent of the intellectual capacity of the crowd. At its height, the crowd was an estimated 200 diversity-loving liberals intent on venting their distaste for White unity, celebration of White identity, and seeking to prevent me from networking with other proud White people. If these goals sound familiar, it is because these are the same goals which the Neal-Marshal Alumni Club embraces for African-American students.
I was spit upon, shouted down, pushed around, stolen from, and physically assaulted for sharing a message of love. Somehow this sort of behavior just doesn’t match up with the democratic ideals of peace, love, social equality, and equal protection under the law. The mob of multicultural loving liberals worked very aggressively in an attempt to silence my message and were determined to tell me that I am not allowed to celebrate my heritage, identity, or share a message of love.
Indiana University and the City of Bloomington are very proud of the many ways that the city has worked towards an all-inclusive, racially blind city. Have you ever watched a child proudly display and brag about a failing grade on a school assignment? I think you get the idea… Racial equality, and all-inclusive policies in Bloomington only really exist on paper. Don’t believe me? Go downtown and try to tell everyone you are proud to be White.
I’m starting to get carried away now. Let’s stay on topic. What were we talking about again? Lets see, we’re not talking about double standards. In fact, I think we are talking about systematic and organized oppression. Yes, that must be it. This is most certainly not a case of double standards because I wasn’t permitted to celebrate my heritage, identity, or share a message of love. Let’s not take this out of context and just call it what it really is… Hatred of the White man.
