Skip to comments.Why Martin Luther King Jr.ís dream is dead

At the very moment when the issue of race might at long last have been put to rest, it is now becoming the most important issue of all.
The decades since the 1960s saw the growth of black studies in American universities. The courses started out in part as a way of de-stigmatizing the group and educating people about a crucial aspect of their history.
But, just as a popular strand of feminism turned from celebrating women to vilifying men, a portion of black studies started attacking people who were not black. A discipline intended to de-stigmatize began to re-stigmatize. This has led to the growth of whiteness studies a discipline that is now taught at all of the Ivy League universities in the US.
Oxford Universitys Research Encyclopedia describes whiteness studies as: A growing field of scholarship whose aim is to reveal the invisible structures that produce white supremacy and privilege.
Whereas black studies celebrates black writers and black history, and gay studies brings out gay figures from history and pushes them to the fore, whiteness studies is committed to disrupting racism by problematizing whiteness, according to Syracuse University professor Barbara Applebaum, who wrote Oxfords definition. This is to be done as a corrective.

Thanks for posting, excellent article
Dr King’s dream is dead because there are people who are heavily invested in keeping the chimera of racism alive in the United States. Their very lucrative livelihoods depend on it.
Those protesters didn’t want ‘special’ treatment.
They already had that...
Murray is a gem.
Though he doesn’t tell you..
WHO came up with Critical Race Theory.
And, who are they?
I don’t/won/t believe this. I know too many people who live well together, including mixed race couples/families. Just because some in academia are twisted doesn’t mean we all are. Take back the Dream, everybody!
Libtards dont and will never give up the race card. They will never give up the benefits and privileges of being labeled a mikority that requires affirmative action and quotas.
They never will, willingly. And neither will women.
And, to all.
Douglas Murray is a gem, and go to youtube and listen to his talks. See you in three weeks...
I have always said “you can never achieve equality by pointing out differences, you can only achieve equality if what makes us different no longer matters”. The race studies and gender studies are all about pointing out the differences and now they are no longer interested in equality. They’re interested in becoming superior.
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to name two. All those who keep alive the myth of ‘hands up don’t shoot’, the myth that Trayvon Martin was just out for a walk and George Zimmerman shot him, the myth that Freddie Gray ws an innocent victim of Baltimore PD brutality... and on and on and on. Those that seek to keep blacks a permanent victim class, a class incapable of helping itself and climbing out of poverty. Infantilizing them, that they have still not overcome slavery which ended over 150 years ago, and cannot overcome segregation and Jim Crow, which ended sixty years ago...
Really, really good article. Perhaps I should buy the book from which this excerpt is taken.
Only color of skin matters
From 1963 on, content of character was just a ruse for quotas
“Dr.” King’s dream was hosing some bitches and drinking some cheap wine.
His dream died during the riots thrown in his honor.
To the blacks and dimwits its never about content of character, but always about color of skin.
