Another White male — the list is endless — has been fired for poltically incorrect speech. Allen Zaruba, an adjunct art professor at Towson University in Maryland, quickly dropped to his knees to beg for forgiveness, and even welcomed his own firing.
It’s not even clear from the story what, exactly, Zaruba said, reminding me of Sam Francis’ writing in Race and the American Prospect that racial issues today are what sexual issues were during the Victorian age. You might well have seen “Governess Fired for Mentioning Unmentionables” in the English press a century ago.
“I will never use that term again,” Zaruba told the Baltimore Sun. “It is absolutely transgressive.” Transgressive? Is that the opposite of Barack Obama’s “transformative”?
But was there a spark of resistance in his mind? The story ended this way: “Despite taking responsibility for his error, Zaruba said his firing
raises troubling questions about the power of political correctness in modern society. Are we in for another state of McCarthyism?’ he said. ‘We have to have compassion and realize that people are not perfect.’”
The problem, Allen, is that there is no “compassion” for Whites. You — and so many like you — are under the impression that non-Whites, once in power, will extend compassion to Whites. Let me correct this misimpression: they won’t.
Liberal Whites like Amy Biehl assume that their halos will distinguish them in the eyes of Blacks from “bad” characters like Eugene Terreblanche, but they won’t. They don’t care if you’re a full-fledged Klansman in Alabama or a hippie-dippie art teacher in Maryland. If you’re White, you’re going under the multicultural steamroller.
That is racial reality, and more whites need to check into it.
