Portland Community College says only white people are racist, will spend all of April shaming 'whiteness'

StaffRebel Columnist

Portland Community College has decided that April will be “Whiteness History Month” - a month designated for criticizing white people.

According to the PCC website, “Whiteness History Month: Context, Consequences and Change is a multidisciplinary, district-wide, educational project examining race and racism through an exploration of the construction of whiteness, its origins and heritage. Scheduled for the month of April 2016, the project seeks to inspire innovative and practical solutions to community issues and social problems that stem from racism.”

The website goes on to say that this isn't a celebration of white history, unlike 'black history month' and other heritage months, which are.

Whiteness History Month Project, unlike heritage months, is not a celebratory endeavor, it is an effort to change our campus climate. The Project seeks to challenge the master narrative of race and racism through an exploration of the social construction of whiteness. Challenging the master narrative of traditional curriculum is a strategy within higher education that promotes multicultural education and equity.”

Under the PCC's 'diversity definitions' it states that racism is “A system of advantage based on race and supported by institutional structures, policies and practices that create and sustain advantages for the dominant white group while systematically subordinating members of targeted racial groups. This relative advantage for Whites and subordination for individuals of color is supported by the actions of individuals, cultural norms, and values and the institutional structures and practices of society.”

So, according to Portland Community College, racism is limited to white people keeping people of colour down and other races cannot be racist.

In a sub page defining the term taken from the University of Calgary, it's shown that 'whiteness' is different than 'white'.

“Whiteness has a long history in European imperialism and epistemologies. It does not simply refer to skin color but an ideology based on beliefs, values, behaviors, habits and attitudes, which result in the unequal distribution of power and privilege based on skin color,” it says.

All the Professors should resign, and the college should be shut down. How dare they allow such creation of white hierarchy and indoctrination even exist!! SHUT THEM ALL DOWN!!!!!

Black Studies, Chicano Studies, Women’s Studies, Queer Studies, etc… ALL celebrate and empower identity, while Whiteness Studies focuses on atrocities committed by European peoples, demonizing and vilifying an entire “race” while ignoring their contributions to humanity. Whiteness Studies is an offshoot of Marxist Critical Theory, designed to attack and ultimately dismantle Western Society. Buzz words like Diversity, Multiculturalism and political correctness are used by these radicals as a shield for what is nothing more than ideological hate. An entire generation has already been indoctrinated with this dishonest and racist rhetoric. At what point will decent people finally recognize that this brand of racial contempt is one step away from the ovens? When do the people responsible for creating curriculum develop a concsience? Are there any adults at this college, maybe even just one or two with a vertabrae between them who can stand up and say “No, not this, not in my school”?

Don’t you think that Portland CC is simply raising awareness of intrinsic institutional racism of white people especially prevalent 50 years ago rather than saying that only white people are guilty of being racist? In my opinion they are accurately describing the prevailing mindset in the majority of white America, even in the north at that time that continues in some to this day.

I can remember growing up in the 60’s in an Alberta city that had virtually no other colours or races other than white. The closest that we got to racism was Polish and Ukrainian jokes but most of my buds where Polish and Ukrainian. Racism was really non-existent. There was still WWII hard feeling against the Japanese and Germans…but not bad….and perhaps justifiable. Then came Trudeau and his ilk with multiculturalism. Then came special rights for minorities. Then came human rights tribunals. Get the point? Left alone our society can make its own decisions about the miscibility of foreigners and criminals. Let universities and governments implement stupid policies…

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

Only white people are racist? Chris Rock made a pretty compelling argument disproving this.
commented 2016-01-19 01:38:04 -0500
Whites need to start protesting in the streets agains this racism. We let them get away with it by not showing force.

The Left hate the Whites because of their success. We won WWI, WWII, 900yrs prior we beat back the Ottoman Empire, we started the industrial revilutinon by mining coal and starting the first patent office, and capitalism didn’t implode afterall, but Marxism did! Oh yeah, they’re pissed, and they’ll do anyting to undermine all that, with ther psychology of hate as their main weapon. I simply keep asking the Left when they’re going to make up for past wrongs by Lefty’s, like Stalin, and Hitler, and Mao. And when will they be “made to pay” for the 30 million deaths they caused by getting DDT banned and milaria returning to Afica?
Best defense is a good offense. Arm you kids with the knowledge to blow back!!

They can go $kr3W their anti-cis non-white privilege into a vat of acid.
I am tired of being the only religion, race, gender and sex that is vilified just for existing.
You know what happens when people are oppressed and not allowed to express their views for too long?
Bad things … really bad things in some cases.

The Left has gone yet again to far;

The Left; want to drop entrance scores to schools so people all people can enter into higher education.
The right; wants the scores to stay the same. Why you ask? We believe the schools that are teaching should better everyone that can make it in the real world. Why hold back or tease a student that will not pass or if they do, they can’t make it in the real world.

The Left; wants everyone to say they are the same, they are equal to every task.
The Right; wants the people to understand that not everyone is equal. Can a 4’ 2" man play in the MBA against a 6’ 9" player? Not a chance. Can a 120 pound man go head to head against a 420 pound wrestler? Not a chance again.

The Left; wants to teach boys on how to be girls,and girls on how to be boys (just look at the school system).
The Right; wants the girls to better them self’s at all costs. The Right wants the boys to grow up and be boys. Let them play hard let them get banged up, and if the girls want to do the same then let them.

We see this type of crap every day now, and it is getting worse by the day. In all the statements I made above was there race in any of it. NO…..

But the left just wants to keep bashing us. Well I for one will keep taking your bullshit. Because when the shit hits the fan, it will be women and men like me… That will be standing at the finish line….

You liberals can go jump off a cliff or something.

White people can’t help it if they are superior. Why should they lower their standards, just because other races can’t keep up? Are we going to ask hard working Asian students to stop studying so hard because they are making others look inferior? Everyone should just do their best and to hell with racism in any form including reverse racism.

To carry this logic forward . I am not white and I resent being called white . I do not and cannot called a native a red man or a Chinese a yellow man and many leftards demand that descendants of Africa be called African- whatever . Paper is white , snow is white , I am not white , I am a Canadian of Scottish descent . By labelling me white this college has demonstrated that it is a steaming , cesspool of purilent racism. Any parent with a child in that school should seriously consider why they’re wasting their money and the kids time .

“Only white people are racist” is as racist a statement as one can make.
commented 2016-01-18 19:41:44 -0500
Funny how us whites are such bad people, yet all these other races want to immigrate to white countries.
commented 2016-01-18 19:22:20 -0500
When it is all said and done there is really only one human race, the human race.
We are all of us animals, albeit magnificent ones, and our brains and hearts and blood are made from the same generic source.

The Left is using their old and moldy bully tactics that dictators employ: divide and conquer, stir the pot and turn up the heat.
Use skin colour to arouse hatred.
How old fashioned of them.

Is this College saying all none whites are Racist?

The world is full of idiots! In fact, idiots run this planet. Every where you look, idiots seem to be in charge. I have nothing more to say than that!

If I was going to this college and they had the audacity to attack me for my skin colour, I’d ask for my money back, and go to another college. This is illegal, and those who practice it should be jailed for inciting hatred against the white race. They are jealous of what the white race has accomplished, which is why they want to attack us.

A very Black man ,while in a philosophical mood -once explained to me his view of skin pigmentation, body stature ,work ethic and inventiveness. It is pretty simple really. Black people didn’t need to cover up , store food for the winter or build houses that could withstand the cold. It was just a day to day existence, because of their geographic location on the Planet and there was no incentive to change. The less pigmented people, on the other hand—- were forced by the Planet to adapt ,change and innovate. There is lot more to his theory— as much about Africans as White people.

Why would you send your kids to this or similar colleges?

They know racism and slavery existed before even a single European nation was established, right? And that collectively shaming all white people for the evils of some of their ancestors is in itself racist? And that Western “white” civilization was the first and only civilization up to that time that questioned the morality of slavery and moved and succeeded to outlaw it? I have no problem being honest about the sins of western culture – such as the systematic destruction of natives started by the Spanish, or Jim Crow laws, ect…but neither I, or my white family, or any of the people in our “white” church had anything to do with it, or bear any responsibility for it. When does the collective guilt end?

As a white guy I have lately been reflecting on my own life and career. From my perspective all of this political correctness, equality, reverse discrimination, harassment, anti this, anti that crap started way back with King Trudeau in the 1970’s. Seems like it is going full steam ahead until the white guy is banished to somewhere cold. Oh wait, I live in Canada.

I am tired of being called racist just because I am white. I wonder how this program will help?
commented 2016-01-18 15:35:58 -0500
This is disgusting and should not be allowed at all, and those who are pushing this racism need to put down for the good of society.

If only whites weren’t so racist, there might even be a black man as president.

Socialists love to put themselves down while elevating others, very sad indeed.

Funny I have always known no-one Is more racist than Blacks.
