The Disturbing, Surprisingly Complex Relationship Between White Identity Politics and Racism

The Disturbing, Surprisingly Complex Relationship Between White Identity Politics and Racism In her new book, “White Identity Politics,” the Duke political scientist Ashley Jardina examines the increasing relevance of white identity in America. Drawing on data from American National Election Studies surveys and her own research, Jardina finds that about thirty to forty per cent of white Americans say that white identity is important to them, and she adds an interesting twist—that this group only partly overlaps with the group of white Americans who hold racist views. According to Jardina’s analysis, about thirty-eight per cent of white people who highly value their white identity are at or below the mean level of racial resentment, while forty-four per cent of white people who say their racial identity is less important are at or above that level. “For those invested in racial equality, this outcome should be of little comfort,” Jardina writes, of white Americans asserting their identi…

White MAGA kids taunt Native Indian

Shameful. A group of MAGA hat wearing youths taunted an elder singing and playing a ceremonial drum at yesterday's #IndigenousPeoplesMarch. This is the face of Trump's America: proud, obnoxious racism and disrespect.

THE KAEPERNICK 4
Uh, U.N.I.T.Y., U.N.I.T.Y. that's a unity
U.N.I.T.Y., love a black man from infinity to infinity

For those of you who are too young to remember this bar, it comes straight from the mouth of our big sis Queen Latifah.

This song dropped way back in 93'. So i ask you all these years later. Have we followed her example?

How bout this one?

Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment. We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge (light) about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a United front will be brought about.
-Malcolm X

Can't argue with brother Malcolm bout that. Can you? What would he think of african american unity today?

Lets try one more.

"Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking."

My man Gandhi. You kno…
