    The National Museum of African American History and Culture Removes Chart on “Whiteness”

    Right, because it’s the chart that’s the problem.

    Listen to this article

    Yesterday, I blogged about a “discussion” posted by The National Museum of African American History and Culture which explored “whiteness.”

    It’s the most racist (in the literal sense of the word, not the diluted into nothingness use) thing I’ve read in a long time and I internet for a living.

    Anyway, as a result of public backlash, the museum has removed a chart (which can be found at this link) which attributed things like rugged individualism, nuclear family, scientific method, and work ethic to “whiteness.”

    The museum posted the following statement:

    In that context, we recently unveiled “Talking About Race,” an online portal providing research, studies, and other academic materials from the fields of history, education, psychology, and human development. Our goal in doing so was to contribute to a discussion on this vitally important subject that millions of Americans are grappling with.  

    Since yesterday, certain content in the “Talking About Race” portal has been the subject of questions that we have taken seriously. We have listened to public sentiment and have removed a chart that does not contribute to the productive discussion we had intended.  

    The site’s intent and purpose are to foster and cultivate conversations that are respectful and constructive and provide increased understanding. As an educational institution, we value meaningful dialogue and believe that we are stronger when we can pause, listen, and reflect—even when it challenges us to reconsider our approach. We hope that this portal will be an ever-evolving place that will continue to grow, develop, and ensure that we listen to one another in a spirit of civility and common cause. 

    Right, because it’s the chart that’s the problem.

    The long tirade which states as fact, “whiteness and the normalization of white racial identity throughout America’s history have created a culture where nonwhite persons are seen as inferior or abnormal,” explains the white privilege theory and directs readers to learn more about how whiteness has established a system of oppression, is still up.

    As I mentioned yesterday, the museum is part of the Smithsonian system, which receives at least 62% of its funding from federal sources. So we are literally paying for this.

    According to the chart from the Smithsonian, if one wants to stop being an advocate for “whiteness” and stop their use of it to hurt minorities, then one must support the idea of single mothers as being the best option, that obeying the rules is foolish, that being emotional/angry all the time is best, that one should never trust empirical observations for one’s emotions are a far better gauge of what is really occurring, that setting goals and thinking rationally is the path to failure, that hard work accomplishes nothing, etc. In other words, to support ‘anti-whiteness” one must support anarchy, victimhood, and just about every value that encourages success in life. Really?

    “White” is a term originally (circa 1700s) with Anglos – Eastern and Southern Europeans, Scandinavians, Finnish, Mediterraneans, … others were only given “white status” when politically advantageous. Just like now let the Dems and their social justice warriors ignore science and history and simplify humanity into “races of convenience”.

    If non-white people see themselves as inferior, why is that white people’s fault?
