If White Racism Existed…

From “White racism is dead, part 1: introduction,” at Unamusement Park, July 20, 2011.

If White racism existed, then we would expect to see a greater incidence per capita of crimes inflicted on NAMs by non-Hispanic Whites.

If White racism existed, we would expect to see Whites with identical credentials and IQ levels paid more than NAMs with the same credentials and IQ levels.

If White racism existed, we would expect to see it more difficult for a NAM with an SAT of X to get into various colleges than a White with the same SAT of X.

What we’d expect from the media:

If White racism existed, we would expect to see the media to be emphasising race whenever white people achieve something or do something slightly good, and downplaying race whenever white people do something bad.

We would expect the media to emphasise race whenever black people do something bad, and downplay or not mention race whenever black people achieve something good. We would expect less coverage of achievements of black people than when there is the same level of achievement by white people.

We would expect the media to publish most statistics or scientific research that shows white people in a favourable light, but not those that show white people in a bad light.

We would expect media to excuse the behaviour of white people behaving badly, while not excusing the same behaviour in black people.

We would expect the media to credit black people’s success to white people, while blaming black people’s failures on black people.

Here’s what we’d expect from reality:

We’d expect the success of black people to be inversely proportional to their contact and involvement with white people. (ie More contact with white people = less success for black people)

We’d expect black people to achieve less in the United States than they achieve in black countries such as Africa or Haiti.

We’d expect the government to spend less on black people than it does on white people.

We’d expect accusations of racism against black people to be ignored, and racism against white people to be punished.
