White Privilege Confab: White Is Like Alcoholic

From the Daily Caller:

White Privilege Conference: Being white is like being an alcoholic

By Robby Soave | April 1, 2014

The conference was funded in part by hotel tax revenues, the University of Wisconsin and the City of Madison — in other words, by taxpayer dollars. It was a colorful week, according to an account by the MacIver Institute

Kim Radersma, a former high school English teacher and current activist, hosted a session titled, “Stories from the front lines of education: Confessions of a white, high school English teacher.”

Radersma advised participants — who paid more than $400 for the privilege of hearing her rant about privilege — that teaching was a purely political act, and neutral people should “get the fuck out of education.”

“Teaching is a political act, and you can’t choose to be neutral,” said Radersma. “You are either a pawn used to perpetuate a system of oppression or you are fighting against it. And if you think you are neutral, you are a pawn.”

All teachers who do not actively confront the system are promoting white supremacy, said Radersma.

Despite the dateline, this article is not a joke.

She also said that white people fighting oppression is akin to alcoholic trying to resist the temptation to drink. The dark sickness of racism is at the heart of all the actions of white people.

“Being a white person who does anti-racist work is like being an alcoholic,” she said. “I will never be recovered by my alcoholism, to use the metaphor. I have to everyday wake up and acknowledge that I am so deeply embedded with racist thoughts and notions and actions in my body that I have to choose everyday to do anti-racist work and think in an anti-racist way.”

She also articulated the view that black students were better off being taught by black teachers, since white people have little to offer them. “You need to learn feminism from a woman,” she said. “You need to learn what it is like to be a woman from a woman. I can’t teach students of color nearly as well as a person of color can.”

Typical Democrat viewpoint. ‘Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.’

Radersma is white, as were the vast majority of the participants, according to a photograph of the event.

The price tag for attending WPC varies depending on whether you are a student and when you apply, but it can run as high as $440. At its cheapest, it still costs $200…

Surely there are taxpayer subsidies.

A white attendee shared an anecdote with participants: Her family donated school supplies to a disadvantaged minority family. The attendeed [sic] realized–and Radersma agreed–that her family had perpetrated racism against the minority family.

“It’s that savior mentality… ‘we need to think of them and give them our sympathy and our charity and our generosity,’ which is so demeaning to the people on the receiving end,” said Radersma. “It’s so demoralizing and disempowering to be receiving it.”

Well, that’s handy to know. Especially here at tax time.

    If one believes––and I do––that the American end has to be epidemic insanity, this certainly measures up.

    I would note that individuals can operate under a mental disorder or delusion and still understand what they are doing. Criminal psychopaths do this all the time. In fact, after this rant by Ms Radersma, I am convinced that Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    The fact that Liberals may pursue their policies consciously, deliberately, sincerely, eagerly, and in accordance with an ideology implemented through political, social, and educational programs does not change this diagnosis; it only makes their madness worse.

    Many Liberals have defined Hitler as a madman. A few (very few) Liberals may acknowledge that Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Kim Jong-il, and other communist mass murderers were also madmen, even though the Liberals share their Marxist ideology.

    However, the Liberals’ anti-white policies are just as wicked as those of Hitler, Stalin, et al. The only differences are (1) the identities of their targeted victims, and (2) that Liberal policies are slower and less direct.

    But here again, the fact that Liberals are subtler, more crafty and cunning about what they are doing only makes their madness worse––not better.

    I used to be able to just ignore liberal crapola and liberals. Now I just want them to go away. They are like ants at a picnic except they gloat that they made off with your food.

    So the Ku Klux Klan rally has shifted it’s focus to hatred of white people? There has got to be a DSM IV definition of white people who are racist against their own race. Auto-racism? Achromatophobia? Ivorophobia? Leukophobics?

    She also articulated the view that black students were better off being taught by black teachers, since white people have little to offer them.

    Why of course! You need to look no further than the nearest inner-city black schools! Or Detroit’s 47% illiteracy rate as proof of how well that’s worked out: http://theweek.com/article/index/215055/detroits-shocking-47-percent-illiteracy-rate

    “Teaching is a political act, and you can’t choose to be neutral,” said Radersma.

    Don’t ever forget that. As I have stated many times on here, my college professors also echo the same sentiment, “Everything is political.” Which also means your worth as a human is directly proportional to your level of accepted political radicalism. Just like the structure of the communist party. Loyalty is rewarded, and the unbelieving masses starve.

    “You need to learn feminism from a woman,” she said. “You need to learn what it is like to be a woman from a woman. I can’t teach students of color nearly as well as a person of color can.”

    FLAT OUT BIGOTRY if I have ever heard it. If you are not convinced something is racist or not simply flip-flop the colors in any radical statement and see if it passes the same test.
    “White kids can’t learn from a black teacher nearly as well as from a white person.” –Could anyone get away with that statement on the taxpayer’s dime?

    “It’s that savior mentality… ‘we need to think of them and give them our sympathy and our charity and our generosity,’ which is so demeaning to the people on the receiving end.”

    1. Noooooo problem! Lets end the E.B.T. cards and other welfare charity programs (that disproportionately helps blacks). I am SURE blacks will stand arm in arm with white radicals to end this demeaning practice. Let’s do it tomorrow.
    2. I have never once seen a black person refuse free stuff as demeaning. In fact, I have often been asked / threatened to “donate” more demeaning money to them on the streets. “Yo, got fiddy cent for da bus?” “No? **** you then white *******!”

    What really is happening at this conference is a psychiatrist’s dream as a GIGANTIC WHITE, GUILTY CONSCIENCE SEMINAR, GASKET-BLOWING EXTRAVAGANZA!
    –they are projecting all their guilt of past and present actions upon everyone else.
    –they feel guilty of their success and income while not “living simply so others can simply live.” –yet strangely don’t give up their jobs or donate their houses, cars, bank accounts, to the very minorities they supposedly care so much about. (give up your ill-gotten gains liberals!)
    –they get out all their rage and frustration with their standard Two minutes hate against some inanimate object.
    –they strain their neck from all the bobbing in agreement with each other.
    –they think they are actually making a difference, which is therapeutic.
    *Note: You can’t find it anymore, but these people did the same thing in Florida when Bush won the election in 2000. They all got together to cope with the rage and the lose of the election with a counselor. –Don’t worry, liberals need to “get it all out” even if it makes them look bigoted and ridiculous.

    So then being a progressive is like being an idiot. There you go.

  5. mr_bill says:

    If only there were some efforts to reduce white privilege. There are far too many “Historically White Colleges” and too many carve-outs for admitting white students. The National Association For the Advancement of White People and “The [White] Race” should stand up and admit they’re perpetuating a discriminatory privilege. The United Caucasian College Fund should welcome non-Caucasians and be more inclusive. The same goes for the White Entertainment Network, White Music Awards, and Congressional White Caucus. /sarc

    If you want to see a demonstration of a racial privilege: try chartering a white student union on a college campus where a black student union already exists.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      What I like is that we constantly keep the “Baritonies” confused with our special take on the way we talk to each other using “English”. Were it not for our constantly using it everywhere we go, speaking to other Caucasion-Americans, we would have no power at all. It is deeply rooted in history, from the Latin-based days when we struggled 1,000 years through Greco-Roman times, the dark ages, the oppression of the inquisition and the horrible slavery of the Ottoman Empire and Barbarian years, which, by the way, have made NO efforts at making restitution to the proud, white race for crimes committed to us throughout history…

      They OWE US! I want Italy to pay me for the oppression of Christians because that’s a wound that just won’t heal. Every time I see a crucifix, I am reminded of Rome’s uncaring, insensitive attitude about what they did. And they seem so unconcerned, like it never even happened. And they have kept me from succeeding. I could have a nice house, a car and nice things if it wasn’t for the Romans who keep me from moving up in the world.

      I just want to be recognized, you know? I mean, Do you know what I am saying? Do you understand from where I am coming? Can you use an earth-moving farm implement to till the soil about the story that I am telling?

      some Remarks from President Richard Nixon’s 1972 Accepting the Presidential Nomination

      “Let us commit ourselves to rule out every vestige of discrimination in this country of ours. But my fellow Americans, the way to end discrimination against some is not to begin discrimination against others.

      Dividing Americans into quotas is totally alien to the American tradition.

      Americans don’t want to be part of a quota. They want to be part of America. This Nation proudly calls itself the United States of America. Let us reject any philosophy that would make us the divided people of America.

      The choice in this election is not between radical change and no change. The choice in this election is between change that works and change that won’t work.
      I pledged to seek an honorable end to the war in Vietnam.

      no President in our history, believed that America should ask an enemy for peace on terms that would betray our allies and destroy respect for the United States all over the world.

      We will never abandon our prisoners of war.

      Second, we will not join our enemies in imposing a Communist government on our allies–the 17 million people of South Vietnam.

      we will never stain the honor of the United States of America.

      Now I realize that many, particularly in this political year, wonder why we insist on an honorable peace in Vietnam. From a political standpoint they suggest that since I was not in office when over a half million American men were sent there, that I should end the war by agreeing to impose a Communist government on the people of South Vietnam and just blame the whole catastrophe on my predecessors.

      This might be good politics, but it would be disastrous to the cause of peace in the world. If, at this time, we betray our allies, it will discourage our friends abroad and it will encourage our enemies to engage in aggression.

      That is why I say tonight: Let us always be sure that when the President of the United States goes to the conference table, he never has to negotiate from weakness.”

      Yeh, Rusty. Those Romans took stuff from our fathers and from our fathers’ fathers.

      And from our fathers’ fathers’ fathers. And from our fathers’ fathers’ fathers’ fathers.

      “And what have the Romans ever done for us?”

      “The aqueducts.”


      “The aqueducts.”

      “Oh yeah, yeah, they did give us that, that’s true, yeah.”

    Classes the White Priviledge Conferance…Tea Party racist expert study,.. Destroy Scott Walker….


    This is all very confusing, and I was looking for pics and found a list of the programs and the NAACP did this expert enormous study that the longer one belongs to the Tea Party, the more racist they become. Personally, I dare them to find a legitimate incident of this

    This has been added to the story from a Unviersity in Canada the same country Kim Radersma lied she was getting her Ph.d in “critical whiteness” or whatever the heck.

    I think she should be formally written up as a student since she has admitted she can’t recover from being a racist,
    and can’t stop wanting to be a racist. You would think Brock Univesity would be ashamed.

    How pathetic for Kim Radersma to say she quit teaching because a principal wanted to get more Black Students taking Advancement Placement classes.

    It is the Parent’s responsibilty if they want to put a child in an AP class or if they don’t want their child in an AP class.

    Update for just how mentally challenged education in Canada and their retarded education to human beings.

    A student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada was forced to issue a formal apology for emailing a picture of President Obama kicking open a door–all because some students thought the image was somehow racist.

    The image was actually an edited .gif, and was shown by Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” last fall. It humorously suggests that the president may be fed up with press conferences. McGill student Brian Farnan, vice president of the university’s student government, sent out an email with the .gif and the harmless caption, “Honestly midterms get out of here,” according to Legal Insurrection.

    What happened next is almost unbelievable:

    Another student issued a formal complaint against Farnan for committing a “micro-aggression.”

    Someone needs to File a fromal complaint on Kim Radersma because she is soliciting and taking money and is a hopeless racist and wants a Ph.d in racism. !!!!

    For those not up-to-date on the PC lexicon, “micro-aggression” is the latest phrase of choice for leftist radicals seeking to blame racism for common annoyances suffered by people of all races. Minority activists at the University of Michigan, for example, have insisted that trivial slights, such as “Having your opinion second-guessed in a group assignment,” are micro-aggressions that betray the campus as a hostile place for students of color. (RELATED: UMich means demands of black students who threatened ‘physical action’)

    The .gif of Obama kicking a door was racist because of the “cultural, historical and living legacy surrounding people of color—particularly young men—being portrayed as violent,” according to the apology letter that Farnan was forced to write.

    Technically, Farnan got off easy. Under the McGill student government’s Orwellian “equity policy,” Farnan could have been suspended or even dismissed from his position as vice president in the organization. The decision to force Farnan to apologize was apparently made by an “equity commissioner,” whose will can only be overturned by a two-thirds majority of the student government, according to The McGill Tribune.

    The punishment of Farnan has proved controversial, however, and now the student government has plans to review the equity policy in the coming weeks, according to The McGill Tribune.

    This b.s.is why our country is behind educationally. Education has become nothing but so called social issues, sex orientation, politics, and diet meals have become priority in the sytem.

    No doubt Kim Radersma’s husband is brainwashed and puts up with a lot of propanda and abuse from his beech wife who is trying to turn him into a woman.

  7. yadayada says:

    This bovine scatology is rampant in universities. here are a couple more examples;

    …psychiatrist and writer Frances Cress Welsing, the author of “The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation” and “The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors”, which in part ascribes certain purported, inherent and behavioral differences between black and white people to a “melanin deficiency” in white people:

    On both St. Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, the white male gives gifts of chocolate candy with nuts…. If his sweetheart ingests “chocolate with nuts,” the white male can fantasize that he is genetically equal to the Black male…. Is it not also curious that when white males are young and vigorous, they attempt to master the large brown balls, but as they become older and wiser, they psychologically resign themselves to their inability to master the large brown balls? Their focus then shifts masochistically to hitting the tiny white golf balls in disgust and resignation — in full final realization of white genetic recessiveness.” take that, Tiger Woods !

    or we have this little gem…..

    One of the notions of melanin theory is that white people are mutants, that white skin is an aberration, a form of albinism.[8][10] Melanin theorist Wade Nobles takes this even further, stating that only Black people are fully human because of their higher levels of skin melanin:

    That in the evolution of the species the human family separated in a sense that one branch of the family stopped its evolutionary path and simply depended upon the central nervous system as the total machinery for understanding reality. Whereas, the root of the family continued its path and not only evolved a central nervous system but developed what I called at that time an essential melanic system. And that I even went so far as to try to develop a little formula and suggested that CNS + EMS = HB. CNS (Central Nervous System) + EMS (Essential Melanic System) = HB (Human Being). That the central nervous system combined with the essential melanic system is what makes you human. That, in fact, to be human is to be Black. To be human is to be Black. (Nobles 1989).

    ok, so I’m not human any more. can I opt out of all this over taxation and obummy care crap?
