Should White People Do DEI Work?

“I just can’t even, anymore” he sighed, exasperated. “My patience for well-meaning white people has run out. We’re supposed to congratulate white folks for doing the most minimal thing. For doing what they already should have, long ago!”. Everyone nodded in agreement. I was the only white person in the...

Letter: Where does the blame stop?

I have noticed it is predominantly white liberal elites chastising other whites about "white privilege." I am half Puerto Rican and half Irish American. I don't think I need to be ashamed, blame, or hate my mother for passing on her "whiteness" to me. It was passed on to her by no choice of her own.

The Constitution Was Designed to Protect White Supremacists

Unchecked freedom brings out the absolute worst in humanity. It’s sickening how many people claim tolerating their selfish, ignorant, and oppressive behavior is “necessary” in order to live in a “free” society. If “freedom” means owning slaves, sex trafficking minors, or slaughtering children in mass shootings then I want nothing...

The Problem of Privilege

On many occasions, I have heard American people of color suggest that white privilege and those who deny its existence are two major obstacles in the path to justice and equality. White privilege by itself—the perennial explanation (besides racism, which the term is nearly synonymous with) for why white Americans have less trouble with the police, get approved for more loans, get more job interviews, etc.—is harmful enough, but the real danger lies in the forces allowing it to persist. I say it’s nearly synonymous with racism because, in America, the two cannot exist without one another. Wherever one finds white privilege they automatically find the racism responsible for it.

What Should I Do With My White Privilege at Work?

I am a white woman who was recently promoted to a high-level administrative position in my school district. At the same time, highly experienced and qualified Black women were displaced from their leadership positions. While the school district is requiring all employees to address issues of race and equity, our hiring practices do not reflect these values. I am challenged by my decision to continue to hold my leadership role and my position in the midst of these conflicting messages, actions and values. What can I do to address these inconsistencies and this discrimination?

Racial privilege is well and alive in Hong Kong’s English teaching industry. Where’s the reckoning?

After graduating abroad from university with an English degree in 2017, I had little trouble finding an English-teaching job back in Hong Kong. At the first tutorial center I worked at, I met Illiana. Her English was impeccable, and she spoke fluent Cantonese, Spanish, and her native tongues of Cebuano and Tagalog. I found Illiana’s work ethic truly inspirational and she radiated such enthusiasm. Her students genuinely loved her.

Contempt for the unvaccinated is white privilege

I have a confession to make: I'm a little jealous of California Gov. Gavin Newsom. I realized this as I watched him, scowling and pointing at no one in particular as he laid into the "right-wing echo chamber" and the millions of Americans who have yet to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

The campaign against CRT is all about preserving white privilege

Conservatives are falling all over themselves to denounce Critical Race Theory. Kevin McCarthy has compared it to Jim Crow. Jim Jordan demanded that we defund it. Ted Cruz calls it a “Marxist ideology.”. These statements, mostly laughable when taken at face value, have drawn lots of scorn. That’s understandable, but...

Woman waving Trump flag shouting she’s a white woman drives onto Minnesota state capitol mall

A woman waving a Trump 2024 flag caused a security scare after she drove onto the Minnesota Capitol Mall in St Paul on Monday. “Wild scene at the Minnesota State Capitol as a woman drives her vehicle onto the south mall, waving a Trump flag,” Theo Keith, a political reporter at KMSP-TV/FOX 9 Minneapolis-St. Paul, reported on Twitter. The woman disrupted a press conference being held by Democratic State Representative John Thompson and his supporters at the Capitol building. Footage of the incident showed the woman fleeing across the south lawn of the Mall before she was stopped on...

Charles Murray’s ‘Facing Reality’—A Review

A review of Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America by Charles Murray. Encounter Books, 168 pages. (June, 2021) I’ve known about Charles Murray since 1994, when I was a voracious and unsupervised teen reader in rural Oregon grabbing the library’s latest issue of the New Republic the instant it was shelved. It was here that I stumbled upon the shocking views Murray and Richard J. Herrnstein expressed in The Bell Curve about race, class, and inequality in America. I didn’t give those views much deep thought at the time, and so my perception of Murray and his ideas hewed more or less to the dismissive conventional wisdom. It wasn’t until I read a 1998 essay in Commentary magazine by Christopher Chabris that I began to reconsider. Chabris argued that the media furor around The Bell Curve obscured more than it illuminated, and that the consensus among psychologists on the importance of intelligence to life outcomes was indeed close to what Murray and Herrnstein had asserted. To my surprise, in the 21st century, my relationship with Murray and his ideas took a different turn, as I had the pleasure and honor of becoming his friend. And rather like Murray, I am now the sort of public figure that certain types of people feel they have to publicly denounce in order to establish their own group bona fides.
