Too many people cite the theory of “white privilege” as a reason to endorse anti-white racism. But “white skin privilege” was a concept from 1965 based on research that spanned back to the 1920’s. In 2013, white privilege is irrelevant and has been…

In March, Colorado came close to becoming the 19th state to abolish the death penalty, but the bill failed after Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) voiced opposition and suggested a possible veto.

Timothy McNair is a graduate student of opera at Northwestern University’s famed Bienen School of Music. McNair is at the school on a full scholarship, but the 25-year-old is standing up to his school after his professor, Donald Nally, gave him an assignment to perform a song created by a racist American poet named Walt Whitman. McNair asked his instructor if he could be assigned to perform the work of other artists but Nally denied him the opportunity and told him if he didn’t turn in all of his completed work by Friday, May 17th he’d receive a failing grade. McNair refused.
“Certainly I do not deserve to fail this class. I have a 3.7 GPA. I’m an officer on three committees of this university. So what is deserving for me? Is to be able to perform two pieces and have the third piece removed because of the insensitivity,” McNair told Chicago’s WGN news station. Although the piece McNair is instructed to perform does not contain any blatant racism, McNair believes it is still offensive that he was asked to complete the works of a devout racist. “We know (he) was historically racist. He’s called African Americans ‘baboons’ and was for oppressing voting rights,” McNair said of Whitman.
But let a white person had to sing a song written about Osama or Sadam that shit would have been on every new station.
I didn’t realize Walt Whitman had written such racist stuff (that wasn’t covered when we read his work in high school, SURPRISE) (if you’re curious, his archive has a super-apologist piece about it - along the lines of “well sure he was racist, but everyone was racist back then!”), and this is super fucked up.

my point about ironic fans of rap music is why I can’t stand those shitty acoustic white ppl covers of rap songs
because you think it’s funny to juxtapose your whiteness with “ratchet” rap lyrics to show how “hilarious” you think the lyrics are when you try to put it in the context of an art form you find more legitimate and superior
you are completely stripping the music of it’s context and butchering it for your own amusement I can’t stand it
