NYU Prof: Black and Latino Trump Supporters at Capitol are a Product of ‘Multiracial Whiteness’

NYU Prof: Black and Latino Trump Supporters at Capitol are a Product of ‘Multiracial Whiteness’

“multiracial whiteness is an ideology invested in the unequal distribution of land, wealth, power and privilege”

Cristina Beltrán teaches at New York University. In a recent column, she focused on black and Latino Trump supporters at the Capitol last week.

She suggests this is based on “multiracial whiteness.”

For the left, there is only one explanation for everything. Racism. Even if that means somehow transforming black and Latino Americans into white people.

Beltrán writes at the Washington Post:

To understand Trump’s support, we must think in terms of multiracial Whiteness

The Trump administration’s anti-immigration, anti-civil rights stance has made it easy to classify the president’s loyalists as a homogenous mob of white nationalists. But take a look at the FBI’s posters showing people wanted in the insurrectionist assault on the U.S. Capitol: Among the many White faces are a few that are clearly Latino or African American…

One of the organizers of the “Stop the Steal” movement is Ali Alexander, a Trump supporter who identifies as Black and Arab. The chairman of the neo-fascist Proud Boys is Enrique Tarrio, a Latino raised in Miami’s Little Havana who identifies as Afro-Cuban; when he arrived in Washington for the Jan. 6 march, he was arrested for allegedly burning a Black Lives Matter banner taken from a Black church the month before.

What are we to make of Tarrio — and, more broadly, of Latino voters inspired by Trump? And what are we to make of unmistakably White mob violence that also includes non-White participants? I call this phenomenon multiracial whiteness — the promise that they, too, can lay claim to the politics of aggression, exclusion and domination.

She offers a fuller explanation of multiracial whiteness here:

Rooted in America’s ugly history of white supremacy, indigenous dispossession and anti-blackness, multiracial whiteness is an ideology invested in the unequal distribution of land, wealth, power and privilege — a form of hierarchy in which the standing of one section of the population is premised on the debasement of others. Multiracial whiteness reflects an understanding of whiteness as a political color and not simply a racial identity — a discriminatory worldview in which feelings of freedom and belonging are produced through the persecution and dehumanization of others.

Glenn Greenwald breaks it all down:

The Washington Post has fallen pretty far, haven’t they?

Some ideas are so stupid that you have to be very, very educated to believe them.

    She is another Affirmative idiot. Universities invest huge effort in finding and promoting this stuff.

    I saw her identified elsewhere (Ethics Alarms) as an associate professor of “social and cultural analysis”. WTH? Is that just a made-up field of study, or is is actually a “major”, maybe with its own department and all the attendant overhead or one?

    I guess they have to make up stuff like this so they can claim that there are actually jobs out there for the people who take degrees in the “studies” fields. Thinking that it is a good idea to go into what might be lifelong debt to get these degrees would, in a sane world, make them ineligible for college admission.

    And Wa-Po publishes her garbage.

      Probably a Styrofoam course made up for her, so she would fill a quota slot. He likely is not qualified to teach anything of any substance.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to MattMusson. | January 19, 2021 at 12:38 pm

    Educated? Or, credentialed?

    JusticeDelivered in reply to MattMusson. | January 21, 2021 at 9:10 am

    1) College does not always educate people. I have known quite a few PhD’s who were truly incompetent.

    2) “multiracial whiteness” Hispanics are a blend of native, black and Spanish (white) and American blacks average about 50% +/- 15% Caucasian linage. Internal self loathing of their “whiteness” is driving many crazy.

If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Translation: If all you care about is a certain, single subject (racism) you will believe that every evil is caused by the same thing (whiteness).

“whiteness is an ideology invested in the unequal distribution of land, wealth, power and privilege”….. So in a nutshell capitalism. Is the WaPo author afraid to out themselves as a communist or something?

This is so poor, it doesn’t even rise to the level of wrong.

Put your money where your mouth is, missy.
Demand Bill Gates divest of all his acquired land to people who “deserve” it. But only if they aren’t multi-racial whites.

You can’t make your own decisions. We must make them for you.

Where have we heard that before?

The closer we get to a “biden administration,” the uglier the democrats get. I expect racial divisiveness from the dems, that’s a given. What I find far more troubling is the call to vet National Guard members. This is a huge tell regarding how the democrats feel about the 2020 election. They GD very well know they cheated and stole it. And they know everyone else knows, minus maybe 25% of lowfo’s and their radical true believers. The democrats are without honor, so when facing the honorable sworn to protect and defend the Constitution, they are forced to look away.

Who hires these fools?

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to MAJack. | January 19, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    Colleges and universities that must have a certain number of minorities on staff.

    1) They fill this or that Dept of Ed and EEOC hiring requirements.

    2) They teach courses for those who otherwise would not be in college were it not for goverment-enforced student quotas.

You can’t help but lol when someone drinking the kool-aid complains about how others drink a nonexistence kool-aid.

If gender is no longer defined by genitals, then why should race be defined by skin color or ancestry? If anyone can be either male or female, then anyone can be “White”, or “Black”. And that is the point of capitalizing those terms; they no longer refer to the actual quantity of melanin in a person’s skin, but to the person’s opinions and social-economic status.

The premise of this whole game is to mess with our minds. It boils down to a syllogism:
1. Racism is wrong.
2. This is racism.
3. Therefore this is wrong.
We all (I hope) agree with 1. Racism is definitely wrong. But only if by “racism” you mean what everyone normally means by it: mistreating people simply because of their race and nothing else. When people who are identical in every respect except skin color are treated differently just because of that difference, we all agree that that is wrong. But the moment you change the definition of “racism” in step 2, step 1 becomes invalid, and therefore the whole syllogism fails. It becomes like saying:
1. Chicken is tasty
2. (pointing to a pile of ****) This is chicken
3. Therefore this is tasty, so why aren’t you eating it?

    “In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

    “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”

    Sex is genetic: male and female. Gender is sex-correlated physical and mental (e.g. sexual orientation) attributes: masculine and feminine, respectively. Transgender is a state or process of divergence from normal.

    Diversity [dogma] is a color judgment, not limited to racism, that denies individual dignity, individual conscience, and normalizes color quotas, color blocs, and affirmative discrimination.

    Libertarianism is self-organizing. Liberalism is divergent. Progressivism is unqualified monotonic process: one step forward, two steps backward. Conservativism is moderating. Principles matter.

      #HateLovesAbortion is a planned population scheme, a delegated choice, the wicked solution to a purportedly hard problem, which is socially justified by the ostensibly “secular” Pro-Choice selective, opportunistic, relativistic (e.g. “ethical”) quasi-religion of the established Progressive Church/Synagogue/Temple/Mosque/Clinic/Office/Chamber etc.

    Milhouse, once again you fail to follow the orders of our betters: “Black” should be capitalized while “white” must not
    (Cf. https://apnews.COM/article/7e36c00c5af0436abc09e051261fff1f)

    Of course, I could have missed any number of insane marching orders of our misinformation brigades.

      Milhouse in reply to felixrigidus. | January 20, 2021 at 9:09 am

      I am aware of that ukase. But it’s inconsistent with the general thrust of lefist thought, and I very much doubt that this professor agrees with it. Capitalizing “Black” and “White” is the same idea as capitalizing “Deaf”. It’s about an identity, not a reality. Which is why it’s also the same idea as separating sex (reality) from gender (identity).

Now I know what they spend 4+ years of their life in college. They learn how to make this bullshit up.

“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” -George Orwell

This reminds me of trying to play chess with a pigeon who ignores you, kicks the pieces over, craps on the board and NYT declares them Grand Master. Either the Peter Principal or Communism are alive and well in politics, academia, and communications. Maybe both.

This goes all the way back to when that White Hispanic guy shot Barry’s son.

That helps explain all the minorities in Trump’s administration – they are all multiracial whites! What a relief. Now about those heterosexual gays, Christian Jews, …

The THOUGHT POLICE are working overtime to marginalize any dissent.

BIDEN said – “if you aren’t a democrat – you ain’t black”

Essentially saying: The Democrat plantation is where you belong.

This is outright RACISM.

All the woke Anti-Racists – seem perfectly fine with racism as long as it is directed at White or Asian people.

You don’t fight racism with MORE racism. You have to be fully brainwashed to buy the shit they are selling.

Cristina Beltrán teaches at New York University.
No, actually she does no such thing. She might pontificate. She might indoctrinate. But I highly doubt she “teaches”.

The Trump administration’s … anti-civil rights stance
And right there you know she’s off in her own little MinTru world of twisted language and Escher logic.

QFT, from the top:
Some ideas are so stupid that you have to be very, very educated to believe them.

“NYU prof says” is a pretty good cue to stop listening. You already know what you’re going to hear.

Occam’s Razorburn in action. The simplest explanation is ideologically unacceptable, so in order to deflect the cognitive dissonance, any other explanation is embraced with gusto, no matter how far-fetched or insulting to the intelligence.

Multi-dimensional stupidity on steroids in full bloom — another blooming idiot is made.

Were it not for a few commonsense professors like Dr. Jacobson, and Alan Dershowitz, I’d think that “professor” was the name of a mental illness.

if she’d keep her mouth shut people would just THINK she’s an ignorant dumbass

This screed is remarkably paranoid. Exactly how is “anti-blackness” being implemented? What actual, concrete actions are manifestations of it? Blacks organize black culture. If it fails to serve them how is it the fault of “anti-blackness”, whatever that is?

    I have asked several leftists similar questions because they can hurl unsupported accusations with impunity. I never get an answer and usually get blocked.

Same old “false consciousness” nonsense re-packaged for woke.

Yes, we are all white.

Because only in white societies is the distribution of resources, land, and power unequal.

“a form of hierarchy in which the standing of one section of the population is premised on the debasement of others”

Sounds like BLM’s platform – everything white must ground under their feet.
