Smithsonian Institute tries to explain your white privilege

| August 11, 2020

This happened a few weeks ago, so some of you might have already seen it. For those that haven’t, bear witness to this unbelievably racist fact sheet the US taxpayer-funded Smithsonian Institute ($1 Billion this year) put out. One will note the many similarities to Marxist ideology here, but that’s purely coincidental I’m sure.

This comes from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. Among the things labelled as representative of white culture (and implying they are antithetical to other cultures) are:

  • Be polite
  • The nuclear family
  • Steak and potatoes
  • Plan for the future
  • Respect authority
  • Delayed gratification
  • Majority rules (but one when Whites are in power)
  • Avoid conflict
  • Hard work is the key to success

And my favorite;

  • Objective, rational linear thinking

 

Smithsonian “White Culture” fact sheet

The overt racism from this is shocking, but in 2020 that’s OK as long as the target of your racism is white people. Though in this case they were attempting to tell white people what is wrong with them and instead insult all non-whites as if they lack the ability to think rationally, be on time, and be polite. If David Duke were to put together a list of all the ills in the black community, there’d be significant overlap with this list.

I saw a photo of a woman in the newspaper a couple weeks back. Don’t know what she is or does or what her stance is. I was just struck by her t-shirt. It said, “Black. Proud. Educated.” I see the sentiment, but that last line really hit me. If she’s got to display prominently on her shirt that she’s “educated”, then she’s saying that the default assumption when meeting a black person is that they are uneducated. That seems like a rather bigoted stance for a truly educated person.

    I am surprised they were allowed to put that out.

    Similar to the military, one cannot take a political stand while receiving taxpayer dollars.

    • Green Thumb says:

      Conversely, some of them make sense as I would imagine a lot of live by some of these values like decision making and self-reliance.

    • David says:

      While I agree somewhat with the concept, you will have a hell of a time, say at NSA’s parking lot, turning away folks with bumper stickers.

      Now, whoever used government finding to produce this needs to be fired. For cause.

    • rgr769 says:

      One has to wonder when we will see a similar one for “Black Culture?” Or, is it just assumed their culture is the opposite of this “fact” sheet?

      • nobunny says:

        That’s what I was thinking. I’ve definitely witnessed the opposite of “Don’t show emotion.”

    • NR Pax says:

      They got hammered on their Facebook page for this abortion. And it wasn’t just white people doing it either.

  2. OWB says:

    Some friends and I were having an interesting discussion along these lines this past week-end. We were all raised with solidly middle class values, much as the above chart suggests as being white privilege. We were not all white. In fact, we were mostly non-white within this particular group of friends. But we all agreed that the distinctly American values we were raised to have directly led to the successes we have each had in our lives.

    What we also agreed about was that the distruction of that system of values – hard work leading to success however we might individually define success – is obviously doing no good for this country, for anybody, white, black, brown, red, or otherwise.

    It is that recognition among most Americans that will ultimately save our republic. Or not, if we waited too long to wake up to what the enemies of this country have already done to us. We all agreed that we are not going to give up easily.

  3. Hack Stone says:

    It’s racist to hold an entire religion responsible for what 19 of their adherents did twenty years ago, but entirely reasonable to hold an entire race responsible foe what happened two hundred years ago. One police officer may have caused the death of an African American man as he was taken in custody, so all cops are bastards. African American guys shoots two senior citizens in a Delaware cemetery, and you hear nothing from the major news sources. When Hack was working as a contractor down in Quantico, he was told by a white guy that Hack had white privilege because he grew up in a two parent home and Hack’s father was not irresponsible by abandoning his family. So because some guy’s mother made a bad choice in choosing her sperm donor, Hack turns out to be the bad guy.

  4. Jarhead says:

    Mrs Jarhead has schooled me and mentioned this was apparently taken down from the Smithsonians’s website just recently. Damned if her RIGHTNESS didn’t land me as numero uno finally.

    • Jarhead says:

      Or so I thought. There will be a time, probably when a discussion of inflatable party dolls appears out of nowhere.

  5. SFC D says:

    The Smithsonian was founded by white men, named after a white man, and therefore must cancel itself in order to be completely woke.

  6. Combat Historian says:

    Nothing new from the SJW wokesters at Smithsonian. Back in the mid or late nineties. Smithsonian Air and Space museum annex in NoVa put on display for the first time the cockpit of Hiroshima B29 bomber Enola Gay. The long interpretive caption placed beside the cockpit display basically described the Hiroshima atomic bombing as a hate crime committed by a white racist America against more or less innocent Asian Japanese victims of white American racism. As can be imagined, the interpretive caption drew tremendous flack and controversy, and Smithsonian eventually and grudgingly modified the caption to take the harshest proggy edges off the interpretation, while still retaining in the caption the basic theme of American racism and hatred, but phrased more subtly…

    • Mason says:

      I wonder if they think it would have been less racist to firebomb the city for weeks like Dresden.

      • The Dead Man says:

        I wonder what their takes on Operation Starvation or the proposed invasion plans/planned defenses from the Japanese were.

        Or you know, the fact that there was a planned coup despite the nukes.

  7. 5th/77th FA says:

    Odd how a Country that has elected a Black Man (twice) to become the leader of the “Free World” and has done more than any other country in the world to help the Black Race, is considered to be racist.

    I am getting very sick and tired of being accused of causing all of their self inflicted problems. There are many of us who have never had a prejudiced bone in our bodies that are struggling now to make sure that we don’t develop any. Sadly a very small % of the 13% feel that everything is “Whitey’s Fault” is creating all of these problems.

    As huge as Africa is and as many natural resources that they have, why is it that they made their fortunes off of selling their own kind since the dawn of time? So many of their elected officials here are still exploiting their own.

    • Jarhead says:

      We can live with it over here, providing you keep Jody East of Columbus.

    • rgr769 says:

      Welp, the interwebs and the TV talking heads are all atwitter cuz Gropey Joe is about to name his negress or half-negress for VP. Uh-oh, is “negress” an acceptable word nowadays? Asking for a friend.

      • David says:

        uh, no. Although you would think if ‘Karen’ is acceptable, it should be.

      • UpNorth says:

        It’s Kamal-Toe Mattressback Harris for VP. Pervy Joe just announced it, I guess. Good thing he picked the most competent, experienced one, rather than picking someone based on their sex and race, amiright?

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    The moron who runs the BLM chapter down in Chitown has declared that the looting and pillaging on Sunday/Monday night into Monday morning was justified and not criminal behavior, because it was prompted by the pohlease people shooting a murderous – er, individual who shot at them first.

    The fact that it was organized and was indeed, criminal behavior and those persons were arrested for looting, property destruction, theft, and a charge of conspiracy to commit a crime doesn’t matter. They Black. They cool. They just expressin’ theyselves.

    It’s almost like the BLM twits really do want a civil war, from the things he said.

    • KoB says:

      They do M’Lady, or rather Soros and Company are using the Idiots to attempt the starting of one. Soros is on record, quoted in many reputable places, on his desire to use the Black Race to ferment a Civil War in America. Reports from Chiraq have Fakebook posts telling of the po po killing an unarmed black teen, and the BLM thugs telling people to go take what they want, it is a form of reparations.

      Lock n Load!

      Fox has turned off/removed the comments section. The count was well into the 12K range a little earlier. It has gone “poof” now. 60 millions in damage is the initial estimate.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        How soon do y’all think that the dictators of Chicongo will bawl for federal Money to bail them out?

      • rgr769 says:

        Except those posts leave out the fact that the “teen” wasn’t fifteen, he was 20 and he was openly carrying a firearm in public and he shot at the popo before they returned fire. He died in the hospital.

    • rgr769 says:

      They said they were entitled to loot because it was just “reparations” from “da man” aka whitey for systemic racism. Query: what specific system has all this racism? And how does it operate? Last I heard, they get preferences in all the systems of government, except maybe the enlisted ranks of the military, anyway back in the olden days. I left out the officers, cuz there is no shortage of black generals, including the one just made the boss of all officers, the Pentagon’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, by the evil, racist Orange Man.

  9. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    I’s sure love to get myself some of this “White Privilege” they blab about because I’ve had to work my ass off all my adult life for what I and my Family enjoy today! Just look at any college campus today and you’ll see a “Black Student Union” apart from the regular ones, so where is a “White Student Union”? The victim indoctrination has been going on for at least decades!

    • KoB says:

      API that IS your White Privilege. You just need to get up, everyday, get off of your lily white ass and take it to work. How else are they going to be able to confiscate 40% of what you earn to give to people who are struggling to overcome your years of oppression? If you think that the struggle they had was sitting back waiting on the mail carrier to deliver that check, then you have no clue on what it is like waiting for the download to a magnetic strip on a card.

      You can join the White Student Union as soon as they run the toll free number on the White Entertainment TV. This will happen when the White Congressional Caucus gets the FCC Approval for the frequencies. Don’t forget to fill out your application to join the National Association for the Advancement of White People. You can be the ward representative for the White Lives Matter movement as soon as you tweet out a picture of you looting a Target Store.

      You just keep stacking money up. We’ll tell you when they have enough…or you die…what ever comes FIRST!

      • rgr769 says:

        Yup, the Gimme-Dats need their monthly “draw” as they consider you their partner, anyway insofar as when it comes to sharing in the wealth you create or earn.

  10. Sarge says:

    Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work Work

    equals = white privilege

    Just makes me think back to the eventual situation this will bring us to:

    If too many people are enjoying the ride and not helping push, the wagon is not going anywhere.

    • Fyrfighter says:

      Arbeit macht frei …..

      I’m sure they’ll have a version of that (probably in spanish) over the gate to the work camps that Joe and Kamal-toe intend to set up for all us white folks…

    “I saw a photo of a woman in the newspaper a couple weeks back. Don’t know what she is or does or what her stance is. I was just struck by her t-shirt. It said, “Black. Proud. Educated.””

    “Educated” is an arguable concept these days.

    Just ask your local Starbucks barista.

    • Fyrfighter says:

      ” If she’s got to display prominently on her shirt that she’s “educated”, then she’s saying that the default assumption when meeting a black person is that they are uneducated.”

      Maybe it’s just a personal thing, and she knows that her personality comes across as an ignorant racist, so she needs to tell people that she’s educated because no-one would ever guess that by her behavior… It could happen, look at many of the black women on the democrat side. Most have advanced degrees, but from the stupid shit they say and do, you’d never guess they even graduated high school…

  12. OlafTheTanker says:

    I quit reading that at the point where I saw the flag was backwards.

  13. Graybeard says:

    I didn’t get what they were talking about until I found out about Critical Theory, including Critical Race Theory, Critical Math Theory, and a bunch of other permutations of the abortion of thought.

    There are a number of Christian bloggers out there that talk about it and some do a pretty good job of explaining what they mean and are doing.

    Basically it is ‘destroy Western Civilization in all its forms’ and install socialism in its place.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Work, take personal responsibility, be self-sufficient and you’re just a “white” exploitive bastard who should take what Leftists give you.

  16. Ret_25X says:

    I, for one, cannot wait to live in a society where expertise, hard work, doing things right, and goal orientation are outlawed.

    Just think of the perks….no power, water, sewer, trash or emergency services. No food in the stores. No reliable medical or dental care.

    We can all sit in the dark and sing hymns of praise to our new overlords…the Moronicans.

    Wait a minute…is this the prelude to the Idiocracy?

    • Fyrfighter says:

      Yep, it is.. it’s also called Venezuela…. or North Korea…

      • Ret_25X says:

        or Uganda, Angola, Mozambique, Zambia, Ghana, Chad, Central Congo, Cormoros, Mauritania, ivory coast, etc, etc, etc…

        Don’t forget Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Viet Nam, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan, Armenia, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, etc, etc, etc.

        And many, many more.

        In fact, the list of successful nations is far, far, far, far, shorter than the list of nations that are even incompetently run.

        That such a vocal and violent minority wishes to live in a culture with the same core values as Mozambique is scary as hell.

        That these people are “educated”…Hi Kummissar…is what is really disturbing.
