Stuff White People Say

“If Obama wins, the Blacks will take over.”

Watch the first person interviewed in this clip (I’m sure most of you have seen already):

Notice how the lady’s statement was made without the slightest bit of irony.  And I’m talking about the idea inherent in her statement that a Black “take over” would be a bad thing.  It’s an ironic statement because White rule in this country has never been sufficiently placed under the microscope.

It’s an irony that’s lost on most people who talk about race, race relations and racism.

But one thing that cannot be ignored is how White Majority Rule (WMR) brought us race slavery and then after that was no longer feasible the period known for Jim Crow/discriminatory laws and customs based on racial exclusion and White Advantage and yet WMR continues to this day.

I’d venture to say that most Whites, even so-called White anti-racists, would object to the idea of a Black “takeover” in this country under any scenario.  So it’s rather ironic how, out of all the denounciations of racist things done in the past or currently — not to mention the concept of “institutional racism” — the idea of WMR being a problem hardly ever gets raised by Whites.

  1. what I don’t understand is the assumption of whites that other whites would automatically work in white people’s interest. I wouldn’t say that Bush works in the interest of American people or that McCain would work in the interest of American people.

  2. White people are worried about non-white “takeovers” because they know at some level that they might lose their white privilege. They are afraid of being treated like how racial minorities are treated now.

  3. No, Whites are not afraid of blacks “taking over”, but turning the country into one big crime infested ghetto.

  4. OMG. Did you really say that?

    “No, Whites are not afraid of blacks “taking over”, but turning the country into one big crime infested ghetto.”

    Um, the definition of a “ghetto” is:

    1. A usually poor section of a city inhabited primarily by people of the same race, religion, or social background, often because of discrimination.
    2. An often walled quarter in a European city to which Jews were restricted beginning in the Middle Ages.
    3. Something that resembles the restriction or isolation of a city ghetto: “trapped in ethnic or pink-collar managerial job ghettoes” (Diane Weathers).

    Unfortunately, the poorest of whites seem to be the MOST racist of all, and have the least education among whites. In many ways, the definition of “ghetto” could be a majority white poor neighborhood, replete with drug use and crimes of violence and burglary. So, the better educated whites see the idea of a “black takeover” as losing political power while the poor whites see it as being the possible expansion of blacks into their poor neighborhoods. Interesting.
