As colleges & universities, including my own, announce ambitious plans to bring students back to campus amidst #COVID19, #highered leaders still haven’t fully faced the risks of campus party culture - A thread 1/11

In our study of white college women, we found for affluent white students on “the party pathway,” college is a social experience, with classes here and there to legitimate it. Game days, Greek rush & bar crawls are the point. 2/11 #PartySchool #GreekLife
hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?is…
We know from @JenniferSHirsch & @shamuskhan in #SexualCitizens that campus party culture is dominated by white, wealthy students. White #GreekLife often excludes by race, class, gender, sexuality, etc. & has a history of racism, hazing, sexual assault, property damage 3/11

The Video Breakdown - #LaineyLui Confessional

(or how we can justify #LaineyGossip horrible past).

The bizarre McIntosh/DiAngelo lexicon used is intentionally meant to obfuscate and craft their own narrative.

I'll go through the video and translate what is going on...

At 1:00 pm the show goes on as "RECORDED EARLIER"

i.e. All Questions and #LaineyGossip Answers are carefully written out ahead of time.

This allows for many takes to get a perfectly crafted interview.

THIS IS A PERFECT ILLUSTRATION OF SEVERAL SYSTEMATIC RACISM-FUELED FAILURES HAPPENING ALL AT ONCE. Allow me to explain:
Black people are statistically more likely to get rejected by banks for loans for homes and businesses = less black owned businesses, including book stores.

Black authors are less likely to be published for SEVERAL reasons including #publishingsowhite = less black-authored books. Also see:

Meemaw suffered three strikes that killed her campaign.

First strike, her and her wealthy husband Bruce Mann decided to pretend to be Cherokee. When she didn’t get out the luncheons she thought she was going to get, her words not mine, she stopped pretending.

Second strike. She agreed that Hillary Clinton rigged the campaign against Bernie.

What a slap in the face for all the people that voted for the first female democratic nominee to have Miss Sally Ann sit there and push a Russian propaganda narrative in favor of Bernie.

My peeps who know @lecrae, send that brother a copy of #IBringtheVoices and tell him not to talk to another white evangelical about race until he reads it.
I'm listening to the entire convo now and the whole thing is a setup from the beginning.
That part where Giglio says the difficulty White people have w/ understanding racism is that they can never experience it directly. That's such a standard White copout. Why do you need to experience injustice to know that it exists and that it's wrong?!

Dear .@louiegiglio, with this thread I follow the example of Paul, who publicly rebuked Peter in book of Galatians when Peter tried to placate the faction called judaizers by practicing segregation. Your championing of the term #whiteblessing in reference to #slavery is SIN. 1/
Your sin against Black people, especially women, was public. Therefore, your rebuke must also be public. For, you are an international leader. People of European descent and BIPOC in your network will follow your lead into sin, if you are not corrected publicly. 2/ #whiteblessing
I intend to do 3 things in this thread:
1) correct your thinking on white privilege and white “blessing,”
2) suggest a 3rd term that is the essence of this entire set-up: #WhitePatriarchy,
3) reflect for a moment on the impact of your sin. 3/ #whiteblessing

AFAIK none of my 1st- or 2nd-deg adult relatives (all but one White) have a criminal conviction. But I DO know of at least 5 who had contact w/ #CriminalJustice that #HadTheyBeenBlack would've put them in jail/prison.

THAT is #WhitePrivilege

One uncle, in 3 separate instances:

1. Shot out several street lights for fun.

2. Cut hole in floor under vending machine, from the basement below, & stole the cash.

3. Created fake DL's so underage friends could drink.

Caught 3x. No lasting consequences.

When I was 15, I was chased through a mall by police who were yelling “Stop thief!” I had thousands of dollars of stolen merchandise on me. I was caught, booked, sentenced to 6 months of probation, required to see a parole officer weekly. I was never even handcuffed.

THREAD:
When I was 18, I was pulled over for drunk driving. When the Police Officer asked me to blow into the breathalyzer, I pretended to have asthma and insisted I couldn’t blow hard enough to get a reading.
The officer laughed then asked my friends to blow and when one of them came up sober enough to drive, he let me move to the passenger seat of my car and go home with just a verbal warning.

I’d like to tell a story about my #WhitePrivilege. It’s one that helped me land my first office job, which contributed to starting my career while I was still in high school.

1/25
I had worked at a fast food restaurant for a year, had been promoted a couple of times, and I was a traveling team trainer. My next step would have been assistant store manager. But I knew my heart wasn’t in food service for the long run—I wanted to get into engineering.

Still in high school and knowing I needed to pay for college, I decided to look for a way to get an engineering job the summer between my junior and senior years.

@V8POW Robin DiAngelo is an #ethnomasochist nobody who got a frivolous PhD in "multicultural studies" at age 47, and is known for her "notable idea" of White Fragility,

but she is (was) so obscure that her wiki was near deletion in both 2018 and 2019:

#RobinDiAngelo #WhiteFragility
@V8POW On #WhiteFragility:

The WHITE FRAGILITY concept / phrase / meme / endzone-dance / soft-blood-libel.

2011: coined;
2010s: made rounds on academic-left-fringe;
2020: broke through with George Floyd riots.

Using Ngram and Google Trends data and more. Story in 21 parts (thread).
@V8POW (1.) The term "White Fragility" was independently 'coined'/used many times, and makes sporadic appearances in the 1990s/2000s in NGram but with all kinds of meanings.

One from 2004 refers to the 1994 OJ Simpson ex-wife murder but not related to the late 2010s/2020 meaning:

This Thread Explains Why No matter how many Facts you show ppl [They] still seem Brainwashed by "Experts"

Full Video:
1) 33 YRS AGO KGB operative Yuri Bezmenov, specializing in the fields of Marxist-Leninist propaganda & ideological subversion; warned us about the silent war being waged against The United States of America as part of a long term plan to destroy the American way of life.
2) Russians are masters of deception, mind control & subversion. If you study Modern methods, such as reflex control, you’ll know that Russians have put in their dues when it comes to developing tactics to control others on a mass scale.

A few people, whom I follow and who follow me, are sceptical about the notion of #WhitePrivilege . I'm not an expert, I don't know what it is since I'm not white*. I know however what it isn't however and I'll share my experience.

*In parts of Africa, I was white to the locals.
I live in the UK now. A lot of things that I am, and am not, are determined by my status as an immigrant, not the colour of my skin. My experience however will share common traits with what parents and grand-parents of BAME citizens have experienced - although theirs was worse.
Furthermore, the main characteristics and determining factors of my path will apply to most 1st generation BAME - thus conditioning their current status - but will also apply to former racially segregated countries such as the USA and the RSA to a certain extent.

Il y a volonté claire des réseaux #OpenSociety de transformer la thématique des #ViolencesPolicieres contre les plus pauvres en violence des blancs contre les noirs. C’est la stratégie des 1% les plus riches et de leurs ONG et médias pour détourner l’attention.
Et à chaque fois, les communautés noires se font manipuler par la gauche Soros et jouent la racialisation et la culpabilisation des classes moyennes blanches via la stratégie #WhitePrivilege , pour sauver les fesses des milliardaires et de leur poulain à la tête de l’Etat.
Le #privilegeblanc est le leurre des ONG et médias financés par les 1% pour vous faire oublier le privilège des très riches. C’est la raison pour laquelle la manifestation #AdamaTraoré d’hier a pu se dérouler normalement.

If you or someone you know needs a primer on why #BlackLivesMatter, your #WhitePrivilege, and why all of the protests, rallies, and riots are justified, I suggest you turn to children’s books.

They’re used to explaining complex topics in terms the youngest understand.
If you want to understand the difference between lawful and just, let award-winning children’s book author @KeklaMagoon explain it to you like you were a 12-year-old: facebook.com/1054310240/pos…
Let @EliseGravel explain #WhitePrivilege it to you like you were only 5.

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"
