Posted on 06/22/2012 7:20:39 PM PDT by NoLibZone
A controversy over an anti-racism campaign some local critics say is itself racist is roiling the Iron Range city of Duluth, Minn.
The Un-Fair Campaign addresses what it calls white privilege with billboards, posters and online videos assigning guilt to people with taglines like, Is white skin really fair skin? and I am a white man. Thats unfair. The ads are plastered across a city where 90 percent of the population is Caucasian.
The campaign aims to raise awareness about white privilege in our community, provide resources for understanding and action, and facilitate dialogue and partnership that result in fundamental, systemic change towards racial justice, according to its website.
A coalition of co-sponsors including the City of Duluth, the University of Minnesota-Duluth, the NAACP, League of Women Voters and the YWCA hopes the effort will result in fundamental, systemic change towards racial justice.

I have traveled quite extensively. In the US, I have been to all of the states except North Dakota, and have worked for a good amount of time in most of them.
I have a few questions based on my experience.
1) Which cities do not allow non-whites to attend public
2) What universities do not allow non-whites to attend.
3) Of the schools that do allow non-whites to attend, which ones limit their areas of study.
4) What options do white people have for scholarships and grants that are not available to non-whites
5) Which companies are known to not hire non-whites, and if there are such companies, how is it possible in this day and age that they are still in business.
6) Which whites, specifically are in charge of intentionally denying non-whites the ability to persue any dream they wish.
7) with high school drop out rates in staggering proportions in the non-white community, what kind of jobs are non-whites expecting to get? Who is the cabal in charge of forcing non-whites to drop out of school in the first place.
One thing I have noticed, is there are very few black people with degrees in Engineering or other professional degrees that DO NOT have jobs lined up before they graduate from college. The percentage of black graduates with real degrees unemployed immediately after graduation is way way way below the average.
They’re playing with fire. It makes my ears burn, I’ll say that.
They’re beating a dead horse that is already just a heap of mush.
There is a “final” solution for anyone who thinks it’s unfair that they’re white, and the great thing is that they can solve the problem all by themselves!
Sent an email to the Chancellor....what an idiotic wench. Told her she was absolutely certifiable, and that it’s a good thing she wallows in the sewer of academia for a living because, otherwise, she’d be serving burgers and beers at one of yer better bowling alleys.
It’s anti-white racism. Naturally, Bill O’Reilly was slobbering all over it.
Obvious answer: the same cabal that forces minorities to have 50% to 70%+ of their children out-of-wedlock.
Lendley Black is a man. And from the article, Duluth is not on the Iron Range.
That said, the campaign is a joke.
That dead horse they’re beating is you and me, I hate to tell you.
0, Holder and all of them on down are inciting “their” people and it is ALL to create this division. I always remember being told by a very wise talk radio host years ago, that racism died years ago and must be resurrected for the demoncrats to stay relevant, or in this case, in power. That is exactly why increasingly, blac crime is not prosecuted and they are being taught this BLT and being encouraged to run wild
I mean it’s obvious idiocy. White people haven’t had the capability of wielding the kind of power that these stupid ads are accusing them of, for decades.
If jessie, al or louie did not think of it first, it is racist...
they want their cut.
So it might seem to white people. That’s why I say they’re playing with fire. And anyway, “beating a dead horse” means they are belaboring an obvious fact, not that they are advocating nonsense.
... for example, if I wrote 500 page book on “Why 1+1=2” I would be “beating a dead horse”, since there would be no opposition to this proposition in the first place.
If I wrote a book, “Why black slavery is a great idea”, I would not be “beating a dead horse”, I would be trying to bring a dead horse back to life.
White people are bein forced to pay for these ads, how is that for privelege?
Why do leftists always require YOUR taxes to fund their crap??
Why do leftists always require YOUR taxes to fund their crap??
Because they refuse to pay their fair share.
OBama paid 12 pts under the Bush rates he claims to support.
Buffet pays 21 pts under.
EVERY Hollywood celebrity uses a team of tax lawyers to do the same.
Guilty white folk campaign, I wondered where they all went after they elected this fraud in 08
Duluth needs a larger minority base.
Nobody looted the K-Mart after the flooding a few days ago.
This campaign is doomed to failure, as Duluth is a bastian of liberal gobbledeygook. All it will do is make people irritated by its inherent anti-white racism - which may turn out to be a good thing - if it gets some brain dead cradle Demicrats to realize just whose ox is being gored and by whom.
These grievance mongers are complaining about a situation, which if it even partially existed, became obsolete decades ago. And as far as it did happen, it was largely due to Democrats. Republicans were long known since the Civil War as the more progressive thinkers as far as racial equality of opportunity went. (And that would be one of the rare good uses of the word progressive, since a concrete and morally laudable goal is stated. Other usages such as today, leave the question “progressing towards what” unanswered and are therefore so much smoke and mirrors.)
They ought to be shamed by pointing out not just what I just said, but also that it would be blatantly racist if it singled out some other race for opprobrium.
Will the university sponsor a program about "Jewish Privelege" and shame Jews for using networking and family connections?
Or Oriental Asian Privilege, which in many ways is similar?
A far bigger problem is that most African-Americans, those whose ancestors were Negros enslaved in America, feel it is anathema to have aspirations in the capitalist system which in a time long long ago abused said ancestors as property. That would be acting too white! And so they close many doors on their own selves.
Recent voluntary immigrants from Africa usually (not always, case in point dear ole Barack) have no problem with capitalism and succeed in it just fine.
Not in any usage I've ever heard.
Beating a dead horse means to continue to insist on an outcome you want, after it's already been decided against you.
Someone who insists that "Al Gore won in 2000!" (quite the opposite of an "obvious fact") is beating a dead horse.
Does U of M President (not U of M-Duluth’s Dr. Black but Eric Kaler) approve a policy that endangers white people? That’s strictly against U of M policy.
You're right. I was wrong.
