Professors: It's Not Okay To Be White

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Scott Greer via The Daily Caller,

“Can my children be friends with white people?”

This bizarre question is the basis of a New York Times op-ed published Sunday, and the author answers it with a “no,” albeit with some exceptions.

“History has provided little reason for people of color to trust white people in this way [of genuine friendship], and these recent months have put in the starkest relief the contempt with which the country measures the value of racial minorities,” writes Ekow N. Yankah, a law professor at Yeshiva University.


According to Yankah, examples of white “contempt” for racial minorities in recent months include concerns over the opioid epidemic, worries over rising unemployment among working-class whites, and criticism of NFL players kneeling for the anthem. Apparently those issues receive far more attention than the woes of African-Americans, thus revealing the secret disdain whites have for non-whites.

With that conclusion assumed, Yankah declares the lesson he will teach his kids.

“As against our gauzy national hopes, I will teach my boys to have profound doubts that friendship with white people is possible,” the law professor argues.


“When they ask, I will teach my sons that their beautiful hue is a fault line. Spare me platitudes of how we are all the same on the inside. I first have to keep my boys safe, and so I will teach them before the world shows them this particular brand of rending, violent, often fatal betrayal.

Throughout the article, Yankah bases this pessimistic attitude not on personal experience — he says his childhood hometown was remarkably free of racial tension — but on Donald Trump being president and the violence in Charlottesville.

A large number of white people voting for Trump is the final push in giving up on Caucasians.

“Of course, the rise of this president has broken bonds on all sides. But for people of color the stakes are different. Imagining we can now be friends across this political line is asking us to ignore our safety and that of our children, to abandon personal regard and self-worth,” the professor asserts.


“Only white people can cordon off Mr. Trump’s political meaning, ignore the “unpleasantness” from a position of safety. His election and the year that has followed have fixed the awful thought in my mind too familiar to black Americans: ‘You can’t trust these people.

He also attacks liberals who don’t protest enough or dare to criticize the excesses of racial activism as marked off from friendship.

While Yankah sounds exceptionally grim in his article on interracial friendship, he admits near the end that he has still lots of white friends and his biracial wife passes as Caucasian. Those facts undermine the seriousness of Yankah’s argument, but his intention is clearly not advocating for the total forsaking of interracial friendship.

It’s just another article attempting to shame whites for being, well, white. Yankah counts on The New York Times’ liberal audience to sympathize with his argument and ask themselves what more can they do for radicals like this law professor.

Voting for Democrats isn’t enough. Being a good neighbor to non-whites isn’t enough. Showing no sign of racism isn’t enough.

You must use all your time and energy protesting Trump and advocating for the Black Lives Matter agenda in order to earn trust from non-whites. Otherwise, you’re in the same league as those irredeemable Trump voters.

The deeper meaning of Yankah’s article is that whiteness is itself the 21st century’s Mark of Cain. Bearing that skin color means one is born with the taint of sin from historical injustices and present election outcomes.

One can only atone for this inherent evil by trying to be the wokest white dude possible, and never criticize the actions of those who don’t bear this awful color.

It’s a crazy concept that undermines the last 60 some years of teaching on race. Race is taught to be a social construct that we’re supposed to be getting over with time. You’re not supposed to judge someone by the color of their skin but by their individual character, according to the old consensus.

Columns like Yankah’s shows the reverse of that, pedestaling race as the chief factor in judging another person. And whites come out the worst in this process.

It’s worth remembering that Yankah is professor, and students are indoctrinated with similar messages on a regular basis as my book, “No Campus for White Men,” documents.

When views similar to the Yeshiva law professor’s are the norm, it’s no surprise that such a simple statement as “it’s okay to be white” causes such an uproar on campus.

Spurred on by 4chan, anonymous students have been posting signs declaring it’s okay to be white on campuses across the country. Not that’s it’s better to be white or that it’s great to be white. Simply that it’s okay to be Caucasian.

Those messages, instead of being ignored, have triggered university administrators and campus leftists into seeing the postings as outbursts of dangerous racism.

Marcia L. Sells, Harvard Law School dean, warned in a typical reaction to the messages that they were attempting to divide the university.

“HLS [Harvard Law School] will not let that happen here. We live, work, teach, and learn together in a community that is stronger, better, and deeper because of our diversity and because we encourage open, respectful, and constructive discourse,” Sells wrote in an email to students.

The overreaction to these rather benign posters sends the message that it is not okay to be white. Ignoring them as pranks would mean that schools accept “it’s okay to be white” as so basic that it would be like proudly boasting it’s okay to be left-handed.

But the meltdowns from campus activists and all-too serious concern from school deans means that there is something inherently wrong in stating it’s alright to be white.

With opinions like Yankah’s receiving a platform from America’s paper of record, more people should wake up to how a large percentage of higher education is teaching there’s something inherently wrong with one particular skin color.

Does that sound like an idea that will lead to more harmony in the country?

Never forget, leftism is a mental illness.

Being well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society is NOT a sign of good health!

The Money Power Supremacists are projecting their supremacy onto the most indebted population on the planet - white people.

How come people can't think and can only parrot the Bankster programming?

fx's picture

This clown is a law professor? Unbelievable. Oh, and if he wants his kids to survive, he should first teach them that black people are fucking dangerous to encounter. After all, 80-90% of all blacks who got killed, got killed by other blacks! Black lives matter? Sure, but not to the black gangsters!

It's a shame that such reverse-racists are allowed to educate (indoctrinate) students.

At an average IQ of 75 compared to white non-hispanic 108, only a tiny minority of blacks will be able to integrate into white society. Sorry, but racial differences exist and in the area of IQ those differences are massive.

“History has provided little reason for people of color to trust white people in this way [of genuine friendship], and these recent months have put in the starkest relief the contempt with which the country measures the value of racial minorities."

Yeah... whites have contempt for racial minorities.  We've only let them into our countries en masse... given them every technological wonder and creature-comforts that they could never even imagine - let alone create themselves... AND permitted our women to MATE with them without a whimper.  Yeah... we're pretty evil all right.  (Altruistically insane is more like it.)

"people of color"  

While white is being all colors combined, and the purest black being the total absense of color.

Who exactly do they mean when they speak of people of color?

Or could it just be that they are so uneducated and ignorant that they fall even for the simplest kind of brainwash?

Professors: It's Not Okay To Be White

My response: Any RACE or SKIN COLOR DISCUSSION using the terms WHITE and BLACK is from the PIT OF HELL!!!

As far as GOD, the creator of Mankind, is concerned, there is only one RACE, the HUMAN RACE.

There are NO WHITE or BLACK people, only people with different shades of brown in their skin from a pigment called melanin. If you don't believe me, go get a piece of white and black paper and goto a mirror. Now put the paper along the sides of your head and look in the mirror. Are you WHITE or BLACK? The answer is HELL NO!!!

So as far as I am concerned, these professors who peddle this CRAP should be fired!

the correct terminology is 'hyphenated american'... such as 'european-american', 'asian-american', 'african-american', 'latin-american-american', etc...

And what ever you do,do not ever mention the dual citizens. Ever.

Grumpy6's picture

Correct by what standard?  Unless you are of dual-citizenship (which I don't believe in) you are an American, period.  You may be an American with a European heritage, but you are an American now.  This defining groups by heritage is what the Founding Fathers tried to get away from because it was divisive and corrosive to national unity.  Unfortunately, the U.S. Census Bureau bean counters decided they needed to know and now it is accepted.  It doesn't matter where you came from or what you ancestors did.  It matters that you are now an American and will be respected based on merit.  This Marxist tactic of sowing hate and division has got to be defeated.

No difference,eh?

My whiteness is keeping me from making HUGE amounts of money as I cannot take the climate of Nevada,the only place where sports betting is legal and the place where the Jews just slaughtered 58 to threaten 9-the judges on the Supreme Court who will decide  NJ's sports betting case.

GUS100CORRINA, what coke did you just choke on?

Of course there are different human races.

You can call it whatever you like. Black, white, african, european, wigger, nigger... I dont care, noone cares. There are plenty more races than black and white tho. And hispanic or asian is hardly a race by itself, neighter is african or european. Chinese and indonesians are clearly different races, just as us scanidnavians and italians clearly arent the same or ethiopans and nigerians. Same goes for animals, you got shepard and chowchow. Dobberman and labrador.

Get over your brainwash.

14 million Jews in the worl make up less than 2/10,000ths of one percent of the world's population and you blame everything on them.

You are the problem, not the Jews....


I would suggest that you go back into the sewer where you were born. 


You are using your computer or device to post these messages. After all, as you must know, much of the software and hardware in designed, invented, written or produced by Jews in Israel and the US and elsewhere you love to condemn. 


The Jews can't help it if they excel in science, medicine, pharmaceuticals, physics, computer technology, agricultural breakthroughs...


Most of your modern diagnostics equipment that could save your life were invented in Israel. -- by Jews


The chips in your computer and smart phone were invented and designed in Israel. Your voice recognition apps and your maps apps are designed in Israel.


The technology that has made the transmission of electricity 30-50 percent more efficient was designed in Israel and nearly every country uses it. Then there are the incredible breakthroughs in solar energy.


Many of the newer and safer meds that you take were made in Israel.


Many of the cures for rare diseases were made in Israel.

Agricultural breakthroughs from hydroponics an Israeli invention to the cherry tomato and you can blame on the Jews


Meanwhile, it is the Muslims, whom you seem to love, that has been responsible more than 30,000 deadly attacks around the world since 9-11


Israel is the only country where Christians are safe to practice their religion and are welcomed, and where the Christian population is increasing. 11 percent of the doctors in Israel are Arabs. It is the only multicultural country in a region surrounded by Arab nations that have wiped out diversity and are truly Apartheid states.


You are lower on the totem pole than a dung beetle. At least a dung beetle has an ecological niche. Your niche is in the gutter.

Israel has given you so much, but you hate her. And you hate Jews And get paid to hate her. And you use the tools she's given you to spread your hate!!!!!

If yu hate Jews so much. Go back to the sewers you deserve....

Your sophomoric argument has been addressed before.

Immoral, bad behavior should be called out, whatever group is guilty.

And yes, history is full of bad Jewish behavior.  

With regards to small jewish numbers, that trope isn't even sophomoric, it is juvenile.  In-groups that seize the money power, then the brain centers do not need to be large in number.  A virus is small in number and makes the host malfunction.

Then the appeal to Jewish intelligence and group contribution.....great!.  So what?  Are you saying it wouldn't have been done in their absence?  I'm saying their contributions on the balance scale of history, are negative.

A King has power and he is only one.

did your rabbi teach you that, if the jews did anything they probably stole it and then took credit for it. einstein who was a fraud worked at the patent office and stole his ideas(many of which turned out to be incorrect) anyways, he was a master a master crook, and you are a dupe

Its Beautiful To Be White



Gap Admirer's picture

Apparently some discriminated against white high school kids put some of those signs up around campus in a few areas recently. The school administrators who arrive early, before the students, freaked out, searched out all of the signs, and tore them down before anyone saw them. Just imagine the "shock" and "outrage" that a kid must feel, thinking that some white kid believed that it was OK for her to be white. I'm not sure whether the administrators replaced the signs with "No, it's not OK to be white, honkey" or not.

Mr. Universe's picture

She used "this notion of preservation of white culture" as part of white supremecy. So whites now have a culture? I thought when we gathered around we celebrated all of our heritage and customs, not the color of our skin. Silly libtards, always crying about things that don't exist. But hey, you got to hate hate hate. You need a boogeyman and today, whitey is it.
