“I am also baffled by black hatred for philosophy. I can understand why a black parent would discourage his children from studying philosophy in the present economy, but it’s inexcusable to dissuade them from enjoying the timeless wisdom of classic authors. In college, I met scores of blacks – including philosophy majors – who did not see the point in reading philosophy. They just wanted a fancy degree. Likewise, I knew science majors who didn’t read about science in their free time. For them too, it was about getting credentialed. This is why we should scrap Black History Month. It’s irrelevant to learning, and is solely about projecting undeserved black pride.” – Lipton Matthews, “Scrap Black History month” – American Renaissance, February 17th, 2021.

“If white America, and by extension, the American Right, has a future, it is in the hinterlands. And that is why country music, the last part of American popular culture with any semblance of a white identity, is the top post-Trump target.” – Winston Taney, “Did country singer Morgan Wallace insult Blacks?” – American Renaissance, February 16th, 2021.

“Women initiated the prohibition of prostitution to prevent white slavery, and now a deluded clan of Progressive white Vermont legislators have introduced a law that claims that these old laws were passed not to protect white female victims, but to oppress black male ones.” – John Klar, “Vermont legislators claim criminalizing prostitution is racist against black men” – American Thinker, February 24th, 2021.

“The 34-year-old had recently left his corporate job. The Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd had just begun to spread nationwide… It was out of this moment, one that he calls ‘divine inspiration,’ that he came up with the idea for Proud Puffs, a chocolate-flavored, vegan cereal formed in the shape of a Black fist.” – Philip Lewis, “This Black-owned breakfast food company is making ‘Cereal for the Culture’.” – HuffPost, February 14th, 2021.

“White lives matter! Strathcona high school has been increasingly anti-white rather than pro black for the past few months. We have been forced to sit in our classes and listen to some clowns ranting how terrible and racist are all whites. Enough is enough, us students don’t wish to be thought any of that social justice rubbish, we just want to be treated equally and be respected. Black people shouldn’t be treated superior than white people, nor the other way around. We are all equal and race should be ignored, we must judge each other by our actions, not by the color of our skin.” – Andrea Widburg, “For leftists, calls for racial equality are race-hatred” – American Thinker, February 22nd, 2021.

“Well, you can be sure that there are no anti-Chinese or anti-Jewish equivalents of Kehinde Andrews in Chinese or Israeli universities. And you can also be sure that Professor Andrews is even more ignorant about engineering than I am. Yes, Britain did indeed accumulate some wealth ‘through centuries of African enslavement.’ But so did the Muslim world and African slave-kingdoms. And slavery was neither necessary nor sufficient for the rise of Britain as an industrial and technological giant. Black slaves effectively played the role of horses and oxen: their muscles powered mechanisms and economic systems created by White ingenuity and foresight, but Blacks had no intellectual or creative role in what they powered.” – Tobias Langdon, “The pale male paradox: How White men achieve most and are vilified worst” – The Occidental Observer, February 18th, 2021.
