    ...and the divisive propaganda continues:

    Can My Children Be Friends With White People?

    By EKOW N. YANKAHNOV. 11, 2017

    My oldest son, wrestling with a 4-year-old’s happy struggles, is trying to clarify how many people can be his best friend. “My best friends are you and Mama and my brother and …” But even a child’s joy is not immune to this ominous political period. This summer’s images of violence in Charlottesville, Va., prompted an array of questions. “Some people hate others because they are different,” I offer, lamely. A childish but distinct panic enters his voice. “But I’m not different.”

    It is impossible to convey the mixture of heartbreak and fear I feel for him. Donald Trump’s election has made it clear that I will teach my boys the lesson generations old, one that I for the most part nearly escaped. I will teach them to be cautious, I will teach them suspicion, and I will teach them distrust. Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people.

    Meaningful friendship is not just a feeling. It is not simply being able to share a beer. Real friendship is impossible without the ability to trust others, without knowing that your well-being is important to them. The desire to create, maintain or wield power over others destroys the possibility of friendship. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous dream of black and white children holding hands was a dream precisely because he realized that in Alabama, conditions of dominance made real friendship between white and black people impossible.

    History has provided little reason for people of color to trust white people in this way, and these recent months have put in the starkest relief the contempt with which the country measures the value of racial minorities. America is transfixed on the opioid epidemic among white Americans (who often get hooked after being overprescribed painkillers — while studies show that doctors underprescribe pain medication for African-Americans). But when black lives were struck by addiction, we cordoned off minority communities with the police and threw away an entire generation of black and Hispanic men.

    Likewise, despite centuries of exclusion and robust evidence of continuing racism, minority underemployment is often couched in the language of bad choices and personal responsibility. When systemic joblessness strikes swaths of white America, we get an entire presidential campaign centered on globalization’s impact on the white working class. Even the nerve of some rich or visible African-Americans to protest that America, in its laws and in its police, has rarely been just to all has been met with the howls of a president who cannot tolerate that the lucky and the uppity do not stay in their place.

    This piece of fiction was written for the cause of White guilt....for which the New York Times offered their kind of redemption.

    What kind of a shit parent lets their 4 year old watch TV news about riots?

    Answer: The kind of parent that drops their 4 year old off at day care & writes for the NYTimes. (or worse yet teaches the same drivel at law school)

    And some people are assholes. To me, different might mean "interesting", if they behave like decent people.
    More bullshit. By and large, this "contempt" for certain races is limited. And "the value of racial minorities" is just plain stupid and racist. People have value, not races.

    Here's a show tune from the 1949 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific.South Pacific received scrutiny for its commentary regarding relationships between different races and ethnic groups. In particular, "You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught" was subject to widespread criticism, judged by some to be too controversial or downright inappropriate for the musical stage. Sung by the character Lieutenant Cable, the song is preceded by a line saying racism is "not born in you! It happens after you’re born..."

    Rodgers and Hammerstein risked the entire South Pacific venture in light of legislative challenges to its decency or supposed Communist agenda. While the show was on a tour of the Southern United States, lawmakers in Georgia introduced a bill outlawing entertainment containing "an underlying philosophy inspired by Moscow."

    One legislator said that "a song justifying interracial marriage was implicitly a threat to the American way of life." Rodgers and Hammerstein defended their work strongly.

    James Michener, upon whose stories South Pacific was based, recalled, "The authors replied stubbornly that this number represented why they had wanted to do this play, and that even if it meant the failure of the production, it was going to stay in."

    And that's the problem right there. Rather than letting his children make their own judgement of whites, by evaluating their own experiences with whites, he's going to (in his words) "teach" them to distrust.

    Right, because he's a racist. He's using his own political views, views that are plainly at odds with those of our president, as an excuse to teach his children that it's okay to hate others due to the color of their skin. He may have degrees and accolades to his credit, but he is very small minded imo.

    Points to the professor for owning up to what he said(mostly), but he's still a small minded racist bigot. Good on Tucker for calling him out on his silly comparison regarding Tucker's daughters and the need to protect them from men. It's not the same as claiming one race or another is "bad" and another is "good". America is very possibly the most diverse and least racist nation in the world, but that's not what you get from the lamestream media.

    Thanks for posting this.
