CLAUDIA RANKINE. SHE’S AN ENGLISH PROF AT USC, WHICH PROVES HOW CORRUPT HIGHER EDUCATION IS.
When I read drivel and also read that what I’m reading has won awards and is highly acclaimed, I chalk it up to the corrupt system. Quality is what the media critics (many of them Jewish social justice warriors) say it is. Thus, we get bombarded by sensationalist crap that offers nothing to us other than the “agenda” of egalitarianism, which is intended to create a tyrannical despotism that enriches the elites.
Claudia Rankine is high up in higher education. Her thinking follows the Cultural Marxist line. Whites are the oppressors, blacks the victims. She adds a twist, though. Whites victimize themselves by their racism.
You have to wonder if Claudia Rankine’s “white” husband is a Jewish liberal. His name is John Lucas. Marrying a black is the ultimate capitulation to a load of white guilt–an apology for slavery, Jim Crow, and lynchings. Soon, guys like Lucas, to rid themselves of their guilt, will be marrying black MEN. LOL.
Her acclaimed book is called Citizen: An American Lyric. The following excerpt is taken from an interview related to the book. The bolded parts are questions put to the author.
What the book does most powerfully is to make it clear that racism is everyone’s problem.
Racism is complicated. White people feel personally responsible for racism when they should understand the problem as systemic. It is interfering as much with their lives as with the lives of people of colour. And racism can lodge in them. It isn’t them yet it can become them if they are not taking notice.
What she calls racism is race realism, a survival mechanism that is embedded in the psyche of all people, not just whites. The intelligence of the Euro descended peoples in America and elsewhere manifests itself in a system that tries to protect innocent people from the carnage that results from racial integration and race mixing. In short, race realism attempts to preserve a first world nation since third world nations are all nonwhite.
“Because white men can’t/ police their imagination/ black men are dying.” What was in your mind when you wrote that line?
When white men are shooting black people, some of it is malice and some an out-of-control image of blackness in their minds. Darren Wilson told the jury that he shot Michael Brown because he looked “like a demon”. And I don’t disbelieve it. Blackness in the white imagination has nothing to do with black people.
Michael Brown didn’t just look like a demon, he was demonically possessed, ready and willing to murder Darren Wilson. It is not an “out-of-control image of blackness in their minds” that causes cops to kill blacks. It’s the act of resisting arrest in a violent, threatening manner.
But New York intellectuals love this kind of reasoning and turn of phrase. So perhaps Claudia Rankine does deserve her awards, money, and fame.
Read more about the honors and awards bestowed on Rankine at Wikipedia. Since I was a part of the conspiracy of higher education to propagandize whites with the genius of nonwhites, I can assure you of one thing: There’s no need to be impressed. Her honors and awards are BULLSH*T.
