Duluth, Minnesota: White-bashing on steroids

“… no one is running an anti-racism campaign in Detroit, which is 85% Black, where the racism that has made non-Blacks feel so unwelcome that they have left the city en masse… Detroit was 90% White, but the influx of ‘diversity’ and the crime and urban decay that came with it drove away pretty much all the Whites who could afford to leave… Duluth, by contrast is clean and safe… This is probably why there has never been a mass exodus of non-Whites from Duluth.”

“Non-Whites are not encouraged or expected to take responsibility for their own behaviour, but rather to blame any and all misfortunes on White folk and to interpret every negative experience they have through the lens of discrimination. This isn’t a conversation. It is a scripted dialogue… only Whites can play the villain, only non-Whites can play the victim.”

Only Whites are Racist in Duluth

The city of Duluth, Minnesota is running an “Un-Fair Campaign”, implying that all White people and only White people are racist. The campaign includes billboards that say things like “It’s hard to see racism when you’re White” and photos of White faces written on in black marker about our inherent “White privilege”—all the advantages Whites get from being White but aren’t even aware of. Like the one below: (Picture in original -JG).

The stated mission of the Un-Fair campaign is to:

… raise awareness about white privilege in our community, provide resources for understanding and action, and facilitate dialogue and partnership that results in fundamental, systemic change towards racial justice…

This campaign’s partners include the University of Minnesota, the University of Wisconsin-Lake Superior College (all overflowing with over “enlightened” ivory tower liberals), the NAACP (who are constantly agitating for Black privilege), the YWCA (their mission is to eliminate racism and empower women), Community Action Duluth (whose work with low-income people seems premised on the belief that White privilege is keeping people down), and the Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial (dedicated to the memory of three Blacks who were lynched in Duluth 80 years ago; their mission is fighting ‘institutional racism’). It gets an official stamp of approval from the City of Duluth and the mayor, Don Ness.

Duluth is, after all, a predominantly White city and the liberal establishment wants us to believe this is a problem. The Un-Fair Campaign states on their website:

… The population of Duluth is 89% white, which may be a factor in our community appearing and functioning as a monoculture. This causes some groups to feel marginalized and excluded.

This outcome was confirmed in a recent report on a three year study, Soul of the Community, (bold that) commissioned by the Knight Foundation, which stated:

The [Duluth Area] community significantly underperforms against the comparison group overall and in four of the seven individual openness measures. … Fewer residents than in other comparable communities say it is a good place for racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, young adults without children, and talented college graduates looking for work.

However, no one is running an anti-racism campaign in Detroit, which is 85% Black, where the racism that has made non-Blacks feel so unwelcome that they have left the city en masse. By 1940, Detroit was 90% White, but the influx of ‘diversity’ and the crime and urban decay that came with it drove away pretty much all the Whites who could afford to leave. Today Detroit is one of the least livable cities in America.

Duluth, by contrast is clean and safe (it doesn’t even have a ‘Crime’ section on its Wikipedia entry), with good schools and good jobs. This “racist” city has managed to provide a much higher standard of living compared to other, more diverse cities, including for those residents who are supposedly discriminated against in some invisible fashion. This is probably why there has never been a mass exodus of non-Whites from Duluth. The living there is pretty good all around.

In one television news program (video in original -JG), a black girl in Duluth is shown saying that the Un-Fair campaign is a good thing because maybe it will result in more opportunities and jobs for Blacks.

Detroit, which is run by blacks and where racism presumably can’t exist due to the lack of white people, has roughly a 20% unemployment rate. Duluth’s unemployment rate is just under 6%, which means that the vast majority of Blacks there who want jobs can get them. Nor is there any shortage of good schools in Duluth. Every black child there is going to get a much better education than they would in Detroit, which opens up opportunities to them that Blacks in other cities could never dream of.

As someone who grew up in Minnesota and has since traveled all around America and the rest of the globe, I can say with certainty that Minnesotans are among the least racist and most tolerant people there are, hands down. White people everywhere tend to bend over backwards so as not to come across as racist, but nowhere is this truer than in Minnesota where the concept of Minnesota Nice is a reality and the inhabitants outside of the Twin Cities haven’t had enough exposure to other races to have any reason to be hostile to them.

The Un-Fair Campaign is inventing a problem that doesn’t exist. In saying they want to have a conversation about race, what they really mean is that they want White people to admit they are racist and apologise for it until they are blue in the face. Whites aren’t allowed to argue the point of whether or not they are privileged because they are told they can’t see it anyway. (Convenient circular logic there.) Non-Whites are not encouraged or expected to take responsibility for their own behaviour, but rather to blame any and all misfortunes on White folk and to interpret every negative experience they have through the lens of discrimination. This isn’t a conversation. It is a scripted dialogue and there is no colour-blind casting—only Whites can play the villain, only non-Whites can play the victim.

The only racism whites have difficulty seeing is the racism directed at them. Whites bow down willingly to this kind of rhetoric, blindly accepting their guilt for the crime of having been born. Whites make excuses for racially motivated anti-White crime, refusing to call it what it is. Whites allow themselves to be brainwashed into believing they have no culture, no tribe, no identity beyond that of the individual.

Indeed, I would venture to say that Whites in general are the least racially aware people on the planet. No thinking Black, Hispanic, or Asian believes that race is only a “social construct,” and they agitate aggressively on behalf of their own people. They speak in terms such as “the black community” or “the Latino community.” They don’t claim to be colourblind. In fact, they see race everywhere they look, are acutely aware of it, and eager to point it out. I doubt the majority of Whites in Duluth think about race much at all or have any real experience with racial issues. That just simply isn’t a part of life in areas that are 90%+ White.

The Un-Fair Campaign is certainly unfair. It’s not about combating racism. I doubt much exists in Duluth, of all places. It’s about furthering the idea of inherent White guilt and creating division within a community as a publicity stunt. Non-whites in Duluth wouldn’t feel as though they were being victimised if they weren’t constantly being told that they are. In any situation, it’s always important to ask who stands to gain. The people of Duluth don’t stand to benefit from this. All the Un-Fair Campaign will do is create hostility and resentment that didn’t exist before. The elite, however, always benefit when the lesser classes are divided and distracted and spreading accusations of racism is a convenient way to do this.
