"Whiteness is a Pandemic"

So "The Root" I guess comes through with more inane bullshit

>Whiteness is a public health crisis. It shortens life expectancies, it pollutes air, it constricts equilibrium, it devastates forests, it melts ice caps, it sparks (and funds) wars, it flattens dialects, it infests consciousnesses, and it kills peopleβ€”white people and people who are not white, my mom included. There will be people who die, in 2050, because of white supremacy-induced decisions from 1850.

I don't understand blaming "Whiteness" on issues that are more accurately described as capitalism or liberalism.

I also can't stand the argument that apparently non-whites are "Noble Savages" and don't contribute to issues like pollution, wars, and public health. It's stupid. It goes against basic human nature..

I'm at the point where I am of the belief that there is no way someone could have their racist head up so far up their ass to write such garbage. It has to be funded by the CIA to prevent left wing class consciousness..

What is "Whiteness"?

I have my own ideas, but I find the concept interesting as it always seems to be defined differently by different people. I haven't seen any posts discussing this specifically so hopefully other people find it as interesting as I do.

I think it's pretty easy to define who is obviously white. Someone with blue eyes and blonde hair from a rich Western European country is white by basically every definition, but it's not always so simple.

Is whiteness the colour of your skin? If so many Asians (east, west, and central) would be white, and many Southern Europeans would be "brown".

Is whiteness a geographical concept (european=white)? If so, Roma would be white, and Caucasians and Jewish people would not be.

Is it a combination of factors? If so then what war crimes have (for example) Moldovans committed that would justify grouping them in with "the oppressors"

At what point is a mixed race person white or not white? Is the one drop rule not racist? Or is it based on upbringing (white skinned people with some native ancestry for example)? If so does a white child adopted into a non white home also become a POC?

Part of the reason this has always intrigued me is that I'm what's often referred to as "white-passing". But what is white-passing, and how is it objectively different from being "White"? If white people have white privilege, and people see me as white, do I not then become white? I've never been discriminated against for my physical attributes, I've even been hit on by a full-blown neonazi, and yet online I'm still brown when I admit that both my parents are from Iraq.

People can go from being white to not white then back again without changing anything about themselves, making it an essentially pointless distinction. What people are really talking about when they critique Whiteness is obviously capitalism and imperialism, and I think most here understand that white and non white people alike have been both victims and oppressors, and that placing too much importance on race is reductive and takes the focus off the real issues, but I still see people defending "whiteness", which made me curious about what it means to people.

There's also the other side, "what is a POC?" which is basically the same thing, but you might feel more racist answering that.

"To understand Trump’s support, we must think in terms of multiracial Whiteness"

Via the Washington Post, an NYU professor and author of Cruelty as Citizenship: How Migrant Suffering Sustains White Democracy "explains" Trump's support among POC.

> Rooted in America’s ugly history of white supremacy, indigenous dispossession and anti-blackness, multiracial whiteness is an ideology invested in the unequal distribution of land, wealth, power and privilege β€” a form of hierarchy in which the standing of one section of the population is premised on the debasement of others. Multiracial whiteness reflects an understanding of whiteness as a political color and not simply a racial identity β€” a discriminatory worldview in which feelings of freedom and belonging are produced through the persecution and dehumanization of others.
>
>Multiracial whiteness promises Latino Trump supporters freedom from the politics of diversity and recognition. For voters who see the very act of acknowledging one’s racial identity as itself racist, the politics of multiracial whiteness reinforces their desired approach to colorblind individualism. In the politics of multiracial whiteness, anyone can join the MAGA movement and engage in the wild freedom of unbridled rage and conspiracy theories.

Does Woody Allen have a "history of predatorial behavior"? Is he protected by "power and whiteness"?

One does not know where to begin, when it comes to the endless repeats of the allegations against Woody Allen, until they are generally accepted as truths. But let me comment on one aspect of the new McCarthyism: Some-one commented here, as a sort of proof that Woody Allen is guilty of child-molesting, that he "does not belong to a minority". Another comment lists as proofs of his guilt: "If somebody has a history of predatorial behavior. If someone’s behavior cannot be challenged due to power and whiteness." First, Woody Allen does belong to a minority - the most persecuted minority in history. This is not, of course, proof that he is innocent - but it's very strange to see that it is no longer politically correct to reagrd a minority of 14 million people worldwide as a minority. And why? Because of the relative "whiteness" of some Jews. The second quote alleges that a reason why Woody Allen was not sentenced for the crime he allegedly committed, is his "power and whiteness". Well, his accusers are white and powerful - so perhaps his "whiteness" does not enter into it. It is sad to see how racism is promoted in the name of anti-racism thesed days. Getting closer to the essence of the accusations, it is repeated over and over that Woody Allen has a "history of predatorial behavior" - but that is manifestly not the case. There has only ever been one accusation against him, based on an incident that is alleged to have taken place within a time-frame of 20 minutes in 1992. There will never be another accuser, because the man is not a "predator". Another reason, we are told, why Allen must be a child-molestor, is that he has had relationships with "much younger women". As one of them, Stacey Nelkin, says in an interview on youtube, age difference and paedophilia is not the same - she is rightly offended that her relationship with Allen is seen as proof that he would then also molest a "prepubescent child". Some-one who is attracted to much younger, but grown-up and consenting, women, is not a paedophile - whatever else one might think about the relationships. Paedophiles are sexually attracted to prepubescent children, and it is pretty obvious that Woody Allen is not, if you look at the whole of his 86 year-life, and not just the allegations about those 20 minutes in 1992. One of the reasons why I do not believe that Allen is a paedophile is that I was abused by a paedophile at age 11. Therefore I know that being a paedophile is not something you can turn on o

NYC public school asks parents to β€˜reflect’ on their β€˜whiteness’

My son went to this school, starting in sixth grade. By the end of seventh grade, we took him out. Not because of Federmans wokeness, but he was the principal reason (no pun intended) we moved him. Once a dick, always a dick.

If there's a such thing as "forced diversity" then there necessarily has to be a thing as "forced whiteness"

People complain about games that are diverse, but I ask, where was this cancel culture and outrage when it was a bunch of white faces in media(it still is btw). Look at videos games: Virtually every main protagonist is white male. Thousands upon thousands of white males, and none of you had anything against it. You were completely ok with forced white maleness, but feign outrage when 1 gay character is in a movie. And you can't say "oh well the country is majority white" because video games are a totally fictional medium; it could have been literally any character, in any country or environment, but they're white. You're a hypocrite. It's only "forced" or "annoying" because they aren't your race or identity lol. Rules for thee.

Sorry, but if white people are entitled to representation, then so are minorities. Identity politics begets identity politics: White people can't practice theirs for literal centuries, and not expect other people to feel left out, and do theirs in return. But anyone in marketing can tell you the importance of identity on the big screen. People prefer to see their race, gender, sexual orientation on the screen. This is true of virtually any aspect of life, whether it be at a bar, at school, or on tinder. You know it's true haha. Just because it pisses you off doesn't mean it isn't empirically true. But we shouldn't be politically correct snowflakes like you say you hate. Race/identity is so consequential to the fabric of our society. Birds of feather flock together.

I'm not saying that is the ideal world in which I want to live, I'm saying it IS the world we live in, and particularly the world the white, cis people crying over minorities in media, have chosen to live in for the past decades and continue to.

Take the red pill.

Whiteness in moissanite?

We all know that moissanite used to have a bad rep for taking on certain colors or potentially clouding, but has anyone noticed their moissy looking very white? I've noticed that diamonds have a clearer tone bordering on like a translucent steely grey. This site probably best shows what I'm trying to explain. So what do you think? Is your moissy clear or does it trend a brighter white?
