Critical Race Theory Erases Jewish Students

Critical Race Theory Erases Jewish Students

“You wonder whether it’s a microaggression to deny being antisemitic.”

It sure looks that way. This post from Pamela Paresky at Sapir Journal is astounding:

Critical Race Theory and the ‘Hyper-White’ Jew

Imagine you’ve just been accepted to college. You open your welcome packet. It contains the bestseller all first-year students are expected to read: Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility. You flip to a random page and read, “Only whites can be racist.” You flip to another page where you read that to deny being racist is itself evidence of “white fragility.” You wonder what you’re supposed to do in order to not have “white fragility.”

You dutifully read the book.

Your first day arrives. You decorate your room with pictures. Your favorite is the one of you and your extended family in Israel when you were little. Your cousins live in Tel Aviv and you love visiting them. You hang a hamsa above your desk. Your roommate seems nice.

The theme of orientation is “Campus Inclusion.” The first thing you learn about is “microaggressions.” The associate dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion explains that perpetrators of microaggressions are often unaware of the harm they’re causing. They can even have good intentions. But as the handout says, “almost all interracial encounters are prone to microaggressions.”

You were looking forward to meeting people from different backgrounds. You didn’t realize it would be so fraught — you don’t want to perpetrate anything. It never would have occurred to you that asking someone where he’s from could be a microaggression. Or that saying “I believe the most qualified person should get the job” is. Even saying “America is a melting pot” is on the list.

You cringe when you read that it’s a microaggression to say “there is only one race, the human race.” That’s something your grandmother always says. Her father, who survived several concentration camps, used to say that, too. They aren’t racist. But according to the list, it’s also a microaggression to deny being racist.

You wonder whether it’s a microaggression to deny being antisemitic. You look on the list for examples of microaggressions against Jews. There aren’t any.

Only whites can be racist and commit all kinds of microaggressions. Ah, but as Thomas Sowell has pointed out, when blacks came north they brought with them the redneck culture of the South which included a lot of violent macroaggression, and it was only then that northern whites self-segregated: they did not want to be victims of senseless violence. So when a black tells you, a white person, that you have microaggressions ask that individual about black macroaggressions.

    Jewish students NEVER defend European American students AKA “White students”. But the Jewish students expect White students who are the most hated and lose jobs over this CRT stuff to speak up for them? There is a Jewish student who claims he should t have to be a part of the white erasure agenda in universities because he is Jewish.. but Jewish students also love to speak against White students by claiming they are embarrassed to be white. You can’t have it BOTH ways. Pick a side and stop gaming the system.

No surprise. Scratch a progressive, and you will find an anti-Semite..

Yeah my best friend’s daughter has had to self censor about her trip to Israel(she is Catholic) because one of her roommates is deeply anti Israel, and Muslim(who woulnt be safe in most majoriry muslum countries based on the way she dresses).

Their first convo on the subject had the girl ready for next year when she can choose roommates. She told me over lunch she was talking to her or being around her alone because she was fearful that the rage the roommate had would translate to vuolenxe.

    What do you call the Jewish students speaking against White students claiming they aren’t white? I see it on Twitter all the time?

I somehow lost avoiding in the talking with her sentence

Ok, no using the phone to post again. The word is violence.

Since the protocols hoax is at the root of socialism, the antisemitism is baked in.

CRT is a grossly anti Semitic theory not only because of its erasure of Jewish history but because of its denial of the ability of man on an individual and society wide level to consciously choose to make the decision to change his life for the better

“You flip to a random page and read, “Only whites can be racist.” You flip to another page where you read that to deny being racist is itself evidence of “white fragility.”

It’s amazing how much of this stuff is just a KafkaTrap: if you say you’re guilty then you’re guilty, but if you say you’re not</i) guilty then you're even guiltier.

You'd think the average third-grader would see the absurdity of this: the conclusion is presumed, so evidence is superfluous.

Yet so much of this trendy nonsense is little more than a KafkaTrap. Why would anyone think such obvious illogic to be worth taking seriously?

“You look on the list for examples of microaggressions against Jews. There aren’t any.”

That’s because the left has no time to fiddle with the micro, they just jump straight to the galacto.

I’m fairly sure the CRT proponents see that as a feature and not a bug.
