Professor Claims "Civility" Is A Euphemism For "White Supremacy"

Authored by Celine Ryan via Campus Reform,

A New York University educator recently asserted that current "calls for civility are just a power play by those who feel that white supremacy is under threat."

Simran Jeet Singh, a Henry R. Luce Post-Doctoral Fellow for Religion in International Affairs at NYU’s Center for Religion and Media, made the claim Monday evening in two Twitter threads that appeared to be a response to widespread calls for civility after Maxine Waters publicly endorsed the mass harassment of members of the Trump administration this weekend.

Singh, who describes himself as an “anti-racist activist,” proposed in the first thread that “lecturing people of color about civility in this climate is an ultimate sign of privilege.”

“If you don’t know what it’s like to fight for your life every single day, then it might not be your place to tell us how to fight personal and systemic racism,” he asserts, later adding that “they mobilize and run these dehumanizing racist systems—and then they ask us to be more civil?”

“Civility is racially coded, too,” Singh explains in the second thread.  

“Europeans described those they colonized as uncivilized people’s (barbaric, backwards, savages) in need of civilizing,” he claims. “This logic was central to the colonial enterprise.”

According to the academic, the entire concept of “civility” is rooted in white supremacy, because “part of the colonial legacy is the continued representation of people of color as being less civil,” adding that “this stereotype continues to permeate our social imaginations.”

“Given how whiteness is rooted in European colonialism,” he says, “it is easy to see how and why whiteness aims to make an exclusive claim to civility.”

Singh concludes his remarks by arguing that “calls for civility are just a power play by those who feel that white supremacy is under threat.”

Singh also made headlines last summer, after posting a number of tweets disparaging Trump supporters, including a statement that “all Trump supporters tacitly condone racism” and a controversial photograph of his brother making two middle-finger gestures in front of then president elect Trump’s New York City residence.

Campus Reform reached out to Singh for comment, but has not received a response.

I'd be happy to dispense with it, personally. 

 

bit of a nuisance, really. Unfortunately, there's a whole list of people who aren't going to like the results if I do.

How dare the fucking people of the US or Europe take any action to save their society from those of us who have decided to take it from them?  

I hate these white bastards who think they have a choice in this matter.  We jews have decided that other races will be imported to replace them and if those goyim motherfuckers think they have any say in the matter, they haven't heard what we did to England and Sweden.  Dumb goyim pieces of shit.

These fools are insisting, INSISTING, that we have a race war. So much for the great multicultural experiment!

They obviously haven't learned anything from history. White men are the evilest motherfuckers out there.... the white man will tear off their heads and shit down their necks.

They may trick some into believing its blue v red, or this ism v that ism, but in the end it's everyone else v the white man.

"Europeans described those they colonized as uncivilized people’s (barbaric, backwards, savages) in need of civilizing,”

 

Hmm. Thats what is known as calling a spade a spade right there. Funny how these people, living in America, claim they have to 'fight for their lives' every day. Fucking absurd. Also absurd is the claim that any of those colonized places weren't, in fact, barbaric and backwards. As are their decendants that live here. The ultimate expression of "white supremacy" has to be white liberal's insistance that through handouts, these people can be taught to act civilized. They can't, and theres decades of evidence to prove it.

To Cryptofuckus Cunt above....

I’m not saying that it’s perfect, but things like afformative action have shown that we can and will live with everyone. When you start being reverse racist and seeing white people as a block of people instead of individuals, how is that better than old school racism?

Who led in stopping slavery?

Christian Whites

Many more examples

Civility correction has always been a power play and nothing to do with the type of people. Just something those in power resort too, when they realise they have pushed to far, yet want to retain control and hence use civility into guilt tripping you into acquiescence.

They have just lied and cheated you, you caught them out and they scam you by correcting your mannerisms, to stop you from berating them. The sound negotiating tactic in this regard is to calm yourself, not rant and scream but to calmly and carefully systematically dismantle their edifice of ego, by giving your opinion of them in the most carefully constructed insulting way possible, describe their every defect in the most calm and insulting manner possible, be creative, it counts and you msut smile at them the whole time.

Remember it is their emotions you want to control, you do no want them to control yours.

A professor fights for his life every single day? If not, I guess by his own standards he has no right to be discussing civility.

White supremacy is something you feel when you feel inferior. It has nothing to do with any white person and solely to do with your own mind's beliefs about yourself. I know plenty of Asians and none of them have feelings of white supremacy. Wonder why?

Perhaps white supremacy is one of those terms theyre changing the meaning of like racist. Racist = truth speak, white supremacy = inferiority complex. 

Lastly, this person needs to think through what would happen without civility. There would be a culling of the weak and stupid. Guess who that means?

Hahahaha! Yeah, have you seen how they act in mobs? Regular hangings in India, of witches or their family and knives have been used to hack to death more than one blogger because the village didn't like their point of view. Mob violence, perpetrated by negros is common in the US, Europe, Australia. Who do they target? Mostly whites that are alone and unprepared for the attack. Colin Flaherty has explored negro mob violence for years. Vlad Tepes channel does the same for Europe and Mele Host for Australia.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

We R all fools.  We have people talking like Lawyers 24/7 on TV/Cable/Radio and we don't say shit, don't take action, don't form union to change it... 1920s Germany... Perhaps we just don't see the imperative to form groups, form political parties, form Interest Groups, form Lobbying Agents against Foreign Agents.

- Maybe it is known to the Elites... that people won't stop rape of country like Germany again, won't stop Communist party Growth, won't stop Fascist party Growth... while they do all the planing and strategies.

- The Bankers & Wealthy Interests create Ideology, Conflict, Revolution, Revolutionaries, War & Terrorism Strategies, Terrorists, Guerrillas, and ship the Gas, Diesel, Energy, Food/Water, and Materiel for war when the experts can't be put in place and contracts signed.
