    Racists Anonymous: 12-step cure for disease of “White Privilege”

    Racists Anonymous: 12-step cure for disease of “White Privilege”

    Progressives can now open “Safety Pin Boxes” while taking a “Complicity Cleanse.”

    Last week, we covered the videoptaped torture of a mentally disabled Chicago teen at the hands of 4 black thugs, who taunted him with anti-white and anti-Trump insults.

    Meanwhile, progressives are still fighting the vast, alt-Right conspiracy whenever and wherever they can. For example, now there is a “Racists Anonymous” group, an Alcoholics Anonymous-type organization offering a recovery program for people struggling with their “white privilege”.

    The program is the brainchild of Reverend Ron Buford, a black pastor who worried that conversations about race left him angry and white participants guilty. He says he realized the need for the self-improvement program after witnessing Trump’s rise to power.

    Racists Anonymous is a 12-step program, and meetings begin with everyone in the room announcing that they are, in fact a racist (step one is, of course, admitting you have a problem). The white people in the group discuss their experiences with their own racism, minority attendees discuss experiences encountering racism in society.

    Fascinating. I would be interested to learn about how the Chicago teen felt about his “white privilege” while his scalp was being lacerated with a knife by his abusers.

    But “Racists Anonymous” isn’t the only special, new offering for race-conscious liberals. You can now purchase a racial indulgence in the form of a Safety Pin Box.

    Spend between $25 and $100 a month to receive a box that helps you be a better ally. That’s the business plan set up by Grand Rapids, Michigan entrepreneurs Marissa Johnson and Leslie Mac, at least.

    Every month, they send their subscribers the Safety Pin Box, which Vice reporter Evan McMorris-Santoro describes as being “designed to wake up white people to the realities of being black in America.”

    …The Box has only a few hundred subscribers (it would be fun to do a pool estimating how many of them are white Brooklyn liberals), Johnson and Mac are donating some of the proceeds to black female activists, and liberals and lefties themselves have been highly critical of the exercise.

    Finally, in conjunction with the Women’s March on Washington, there is the Complicity Cleanse. The goal of this activity is lofty: Freeing yourself from the “triumph of patriarchy, sexism, xenophobia, heterosexism”…and, of course, racism.

    After you sign up, you will be sent a “menu” that contains a daily dose of information, resources, questions, actions, challenges– little things to do every single day. The idea is to create a platform of presence in order to forge habits that divest our complicity from the mechanisms of oppression. Once we are aware of our entanglements, we can earnestly begin to dismantle all that allows for the pernicious “-isms” of American identity. Everything on the menu is a suggestion, that will hopefully become a contemplation, a conversation, an act, and eventually an awakened pattern. Little by little we will lesson our enurement with white supremacist, patriarchal rule, and our complicity in the suffering of others.

    No word on whether you have to wear a Pussy Hat when you take that cleanse, however.

    The GoFundMe site for the tortured teen has earned nearly $160,000 to help in the recovery from his “white privilege”. We hope that during Trump’s presidency that the racial divide is lessened and the inane, progressive products and dramas disappear entirely

    Hi! I’m Leslie and I would enjoy the privilege of never reporting on “Racists Anonymous,” safety pins, or Complicity Cleanses again.

    I’m torn between disgust at this idea, and a grudging admiration for these guys who figured out how to make easy money from liberal idiots.

    Someone help me please. Is “enurement” a word? I can’t find it in the dictionary. Or is it another made up lefty term like Latinx?
    Or was this a misspelled “immurement”? Whatever, this is just more evidence of leftists spewing pseudointellectual garbage.

      Enurement is another spelling for inurement…

      “The inurement prohibition forbids the use of the income or assets of a tax-exempt organization to directly or indirectly unduly benefit an individual or other person that has a close relationship with the organization or is able to exercise significant control over the organization.”

      “TO ENURE. To take, or have effect or serve to the use, benefit, or advantage of a person. The word is often written inure. A release to the tenant for life, enures to him in reversion; that is, it has the same effect for him as for the tenant for life. A discharge of the principal enures to the benefit of the surety.”

    I experienced racism first hand as a white teenager in 7th grade while attending junior high in Berkeley Ca. Blacks took out their racist hate on us liberal whites once or twice a week with robberies, assaults and threats. I became a believer in MLK’s demand that I judge blacks by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. The problem was that their character was bad, like klan members.
