More Leftist Tolerance: “That space is not for white people. That space is for people of color.”

You just don’t belong, honky

OLYMPIA, Wash. — An attempt to fight racism at a community college may have backfired.

A group of employees at South Puget Sound Community College sent out an invitation to all 300 staffers.

The “Staff, Faculty and Administrators of Color” encouraged employees to reply to the invitation to find out the confidential date and time of what was being called a “happy hour” to “build support and community” for people of color.

The invite made it clear white people were not invited.

The email read: “If you want to create space for white folks to meet and work on racism, white supremacy, and white privilege to better our campus community and yourselves, please feel free to do just that.”

“It was obviously a mistake,” said SPSCC’s Dean of College Relations, Kellie Purce Braseth.

The first mistake is to assume this was “an error.” The second is to assume this had anything to do with “fighting racism.”

Strengthening group identity based on melanin, denigrating The Other based on melanin and enforcing group-think as a measure of authenticity is the practice of racism, not its antithesis.

And it’s not like Karama Blackthorn, Diversity and Equity Center staffer and invitation author sees anything wrong with segregation.

“That space is not for white people,” she told KING-TV. “That space is for people of color.”

In hindsight, Blackhorn said, she wouldn’t have used the exact words she used.

Cuz, publicity.

Not that Leftist racism is new, it just kept itself cloaked in rhetoric and faux congeniality or concern trolling towards those it set up as Evil Other. (see: White privilege) It’s just the blatancy of in-your-face segregation is cause for at least a raised eye-brow or two.

  1. Cuz, publicity.

    Funny how often this kind of thing happens.

  2. I just want it to be known that I always have my paw out for my white polar bear brothers.

    Most polar bears I know want to know where Al Gore got the idea that they did not know how to swim. I mean their latin name is Ursus maritimus, duh. From experience I can also tell you that although they may like to hunt and eat seals, they will eat just about anything.

  3. Segregation is the new integration.

  4. You would think that since events like CPAC let inauthentic people of color in, that these folks would let inauthentic white people attend their “happy hour”.

  5. Whitey should show up anyway. Sort of like a lunch counter sit-in.

    It’s Selma all over again!

  6. There’s a commercial/PSA thing right now with lots of aging celebrities taking the radical and controversial position that beating up your spouse and rape are wrong. They end with “it’s time to end domestic violence and sexual assault once and for all.’

    No. It’s not. Nor is it time to end starvation, diarrhea, dismembering accidents, urban fires, or other things we hate. That doesn’t mean that I’m happy about those things or defending them. It just means pretending to have control over something vast and complex when you clearly don’t because you think you are special, is foolish.

    Grow the fuck up people.

    You live in the world with other people and that means things will go bad sometimes. Is there no cure for the self deluded idiocy of the idle rich ?

    If sexual assault ends it will not be because Ice T and other aging Hollywood dinosaurs “spoke out” in front of a white background.

  7. palaeomerus, well, when the crash and burn happens, these people will be too busy trying to survive to have time to worry about what the rest of us may or may not be doing.

    So, crash and burn has that going for it.

  8. There’s a commercial/PSA thing right now with lots of aging celebrities taking the radical and controversial position that beating up your spouse and rape are wrong.

    “Courage,” said Dan Rather.

  9. Don’t want no (insert identity group here) people ’round here

    Wrong version.

  10. The thing that gets me about Black Leftists like this Karama [WTF?] Blackthorn is that they’re too fucking stupid to realize they’re being used by the Left in their efforst to Balkanize us for the purpose of destroying Freedom, Liberty, and Order.

    They’re to ignorant to realize that they’re plantationizing themselves – the dumb fucks.

  11. But they’re in the big house Bob –just like Samuel L. Jackson in that godawful Tarantino film.

    (or so I presume)

  13. Palaeomerus: Quoted your comment on 14 March at 3:30 pm and added some of my own reflections on your dead solid perfect sentiments.

  14. Is there no cure for the self deluded idiocy of the idle rich ?

    Speaking of the “self deluded idiocy of the idle rich”, throw in a handful of ‘ludes, a little teh crazee, and you have Cher.

  15. Cher is a high school drop out with a dead career.

  16. Oh, and speaking of teh crazee finding a home inside an associate professors’ tiny skull, there’s this: Dr. Mireille Miller-Young, a “Professor of Feminist Studies at UC Santa Barbara, expertise: race, sexuality, porn, sex work, black culture & feminism”.

    Seems Deb Mireille assaulted an abortion protester in a campus free-speech zone.

    Let’s see if she can still thrive on that or any campus, given #ZeroTolerance.

  17. Paleo, Bob,
    Bingo. We live in an imperfect, un-perfectable world. (As you mentioned in your post Bob, the fruit of Original Sin). Far too many people refuse to recognize that fact, and whenever ANYTHING goes wrong, they insist that SOMEBODY has to DO SOMETHING so that wrong thing doesn’t happen again. And countless busybodies in various and sundry political offices are more than happy to DO SOMETHING.

    Same as it ever was.
