Editors Note: This column is excerpted from a special report that he wrote for Accuracy in Media.
The White Skin Privilege idea was created in 1967 by Noel Ignatiev, an acolyte of [Derrick] Bell and professor at Harvards W.E.B. Du Bois Institute (Du Bois was a Communist black leader who helped found the NAACP).
Writing under the alias Noel Ignatin, Ignatiev co-authored an SDS pamphlet with fellow radical Ted Allen, titled White Blindspot. In 1992 he co-founded Race Traitor: Journal of the New Abolitionism. Its first issue coined the slogan, "Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity." Its stated objective was to "abolish the white race." More specifically, the New Abolitionist newsletter stated:
"The way to abolish the white race is to challenge, disrupt and eventually overturn the institutions and behavior patterns that reproduce the privileges of whiteness, including the schools, job and housing markets, and the criminal justice system. The abolitionists do not limit themselves to socially acceptable means of protest, but reject in advance no means of attaining their goal (emphasis added)."
But do not be confused; "White" does not mean white. "White" in radical construction means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government and American traditional culture and values. By definition, these beliefs are irredeemably evil and anyone who aligns with them is "white" in spirit and thus equally guilty of "white crimes." Ignatiev still teaches, now at the Massachusetts College of Art.
James Simpson is an economist, former White House budget analyst, businessman and investigative journalist.
Well for one, you get to pay for a lot of things....
I’ve known a bunch of people who attended Mass College of Art.
They were all nuts.
Lets hope the big economic re-set occurs soon.
Progressives, leftists, proto-fascists have have had their woolly-headed ideas supported and implemented by government and academia, using printed money and massive government debt, for a couple generations now.
Its time for these people and ideas to be washed away.
Black skinned entitlement.
To maintain that being born white is a “privilege” is to believe that whites are superior.
White Skin Privilege - If we’re paying for everything for everybody, why not?
NO!! That TOO logical.
I will say that I am exceedingly tired of self righteous pseudo intellectuals constantly mouthing irrationalities about white privilege. As we used to say on the streets of my youth, they are just running a game.
I enjoy my ‘white privilege’.
I consists of nothing more than “no one to blame but myself for my failings”.
Why doesn’t anyone notice that “white privilege” stereotypes one skin type, and even profiles that skin type and selectively discriminates against people with light colored skin.
What about "work hard" privilege and "sacrifice now for reward later" privilege?
How has working and saving for the future become "privileged," and living off of government welfare is not?

This is utter racism.
It is also the ethos behind dhimmitude and the Dalit class of Hindu castes. You are inherently evil, you belong to the bottom class of society, don’t follow the rules for that bottom class, your life is forfeit.
And it is actually worse than dhimmitude in Islam, because in Islam, you can convert and join the upper class. The best you can be as a white in this new segregationist ideology is tolerance and minor mouthpiece status for proclaiming how bad your caste is.
I never understood how Christians in Muslim nations were the biggest apologists for the Islamic faith until now.
Genocide is okay as long as it’s only white skinned humans you want to exterminate.
The White skin pulls the wagon the rest it in so it has the privileges and the right to bring the wagon where it wants.It’s not more complicated than that.
Tell the Harlem Globetrotters about this or Ali.
Any privileges I have I plan to keep. Come and take them, if you dare...
