Chair of Higher Ed at U. Denver Says ‘Commit to Realizing the Death of Whiteness’

“whiteness remains in power even when no white people are in leadership”

This person should be fired and it’s not cancel culture to say so. This is simply not acceptable talk for someone in education.

Breitbart News reports:

‘Dead Honky’ – College of Education Department Chair Commits to ‘Death of Whiteness’

A department chair at the University of Denver’s College of Education wrote an article calling on educators to “commit to realizing the death of whiteness.”

The April 2022 article features a call to academics and critical race theorists to join the author in committing themselves to the “death of whiteness,” specifically asking them to take up the “verbal effigy ‘dead honky.’”

Titled “’Dead Honky’— against technologies of (white) violence,” the article focuses on a 1975 skit from Saturday Night Live in which a white character used a racial slur in conversation with a black man. The article, authored by D.L. Stewart, proceeds to use the skit to expound upon a model of “white violence,” which the author argues consists of “malicious white terror,” “rhetorical white innocence,” “white contempt and white transmission,” and finally “pacifying white concession.”

Stewart contends that “whiteness is itself a violence” while also arguing that “in its emptiness, white refers to no ethnic group and defines itself only in reference to what it is not — it is not Black, disabled, poor, trans, non-Christian.”

The article also parroted one of the central tenets of critical race theory — that white supremacy has hegemonic control over American institutions. Stewart even claims that “whiteness remains in power even when no white people are in leadership.”

Author D.L. Stewart is the Higher Education Department Chair of the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver. Stewart is affiliated with the American Educational Research Association and is a “critical and poststructural scholar” who focuses on race, gender, and intersectionality.

These people are all fools. When they radicalize everyone (against them) they will be the first on the chopping block.

He(?) is a racist.

B”H” The great analyst Thomas Wictor (pseudonym) called it already in 2017

“Speech is violence, argument is violence, cartoons are violence, silence is violence, reason is violence, and in the end your existence is violence”

Thus that existence must be ended – not so unstated end goal of critical race theory https://web.archive.org/web/20210114154012/https://twitter.com/daniel_bilar/status/1349742761805836288

Isaiah Berlin 1994 “A message to the 21st century” proved prescient and correct https://web.archive.org/web/20210118201903/http://www.sjpcommunications.org/images/uploads/documents/Isaiah_Berlin.pdf

“I speak with particular feeling, for I am a very old man, and I have lived through almost the entire century. My life has been peaceful and secure, and I feel almost ashamed of this in view of what has happened to so many other human beings. I am not a historian, and so I cannot speak with authority on the causes of these horrors. Yet perhaps I can try.

They were, in my view, not caused by the ordinary negative human sentiments, as Spinoza called them—fear, greed, tribal hatreds, jealousy, love of power—though of course these have played their wicked part. They have been caused, in our time, by ideas; or rather, by one particular idea.

It is paradoxical that Karl Marx, who played down the importance of ideas in comparison with impersonal social and economic forces, should, by his writings, have caused the transformation of the twentieth century, both in the direction of what he wanted and, by reaction, against it. The German poet Heine, in one of his famous writings, told us not to underestimate the quiet philosopher sitting in his study; if Kant had not undone theology, he declared, Robespierre might not have cut off the head of the King of France.

He predicted that the armed disciples of the German philosophers—Fichte, Schelling, and the other fathers of German nationalism—would one day destroy the great monuments of Western Europe in a wave of fanatical destruction before which the French Revolution would seem child’s play. This may have been unfair to the German metaphysicians, yet Heine’s central idea seems to me valid: in a debased form, the Nazi ideology did have roots in German anti-Enlightenment thought. There are men who will kill and maim with a tranquil conscience under the influence of the words and writings of some of those who are certain that they know perfection can be reached.

Let me explain. If you are truly convinced that there is some solution to all human problems, that one can conceive an ideal society which men can reach if only they do what is necessary to attain it, then you and your followers must believe that no price can be too high to pay in order to open the gates of such a paradise. Only the stupid and malevolent will resist once certain simple truths are put to them. Those who resist must be persuaded; if they cannot be persuaded, laws must be passed to restrain them; if that does not work, then coercion, if need be violence, will inevitably have to be used—if necessary, terror, slaughter.

Lenin believed this after reading Das Kapital, and consistently taught that if a just, peaceful, happy, free, virtuous society could be created by the means he advocated, then the end justified any methods that needed to be used, literally any”

The Democrats are going to pass a Law which makes it Illegal to marry a person of your own Race. They will make certain that people MUST be in an Interracial Marriage. The Interracial Marriages will eliminate the Caucasian Race and everyone will be either Brown or Black.

I got ya “white violence” right here, Doc. Come and get some.

I’m fairly certain that what they mean by “whiteness” are those practices and values that make society functional.
