The Effort to Abolish Whiteness

A blogger quotes:
If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world!

The goal of abolishing the white race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white supremacists.

He backs off these, but argues:
Therefore, abolishing whiteness in this thought experiment doesn’t entail abolishing white people. It instead involves dismantling the social constructs and structures which have historically been associated with the concept of whiteness. ...

As can be seen from this discussion, abolishing whiteness doesn’t entail abolishing white people. Such delusions comes from white nationalists and reading into “Abolish whiteness” and inferring that it must mean “Abolishing white people.” This then can be likened with the so-called “great replacement theory“, where abolishing whiteness is being carried out through, great replacement.

Got that? Only someone delusional would take offense at efforts to abolish his kind.

The constructs associated with with whiteness can be collectively called Western Civilization. Or Christendom.

Saying you want to abolish that is wanting to exterminate the best culture on Earth. Maybe not killing white, but wiping out their culture.

I actually followed the link and read the article. What a backpeddling excuse for an article, it has to dig itself out of its own hole multiple times. Smells like a pathetic clickbait piece written by a highly illiterate intersectionalist.

And of course, if anyone suggested 'abolishing Blackness' or 'abolishing Gayness' or 'abolishing 'Jewishness' to improve society, there would be considerable hell to pay.

Pissing on people's legs and telling them it's raining has got to be the most dysfunctional debate technique I've ever encountered. I suppose that's just the 'whiteness' in me talking.
And I'm OK with that.

Pretty good article and quite the interesting comment section. Trying to balance the universal with the particular is fraught with misunderstanding and inaccuracy, in my experience. The term "whiteness" is not useful, in my opinion, because it raises the hackles of so many, and prevents a serious and fruitful examination of the issues.
