Pro-white message taped to Native Studies building day after racist pumpkin incident

The Dean of Native Studies says there were a few posted around the University of Alberta campus

NONE A pro-white note was left on a door at Pembina Hall, which houses the Faculty of Native Studies, at the University of Alberta on Tuesday.

By: Alex Boyd Metro Published on Tue Oct 31 2017

The day after someone left a racist jack-o-lantern outside Native Studies at the University of Alberta, a message reading ‘It’s okay to be white’ was taped to the building’s front door.

As everybody except haters knows, “It’s not okay to be white.”

If this kind of hate isn’t silenced right now, Democratic candidates might someday feel free to say: “All lives matter.”

    Yes, I was going to say the same thing.

    In fact, "pro-white" is a term not only all but exclusively used by pro-whites themselves, it is a term virtually known only to pro-whites themselves.

    Perhaps pro-whites have an insider over at the Metro News.

    In case you don't get it, he is Jewish. Would he ever say that there is a case against Jewish procreation, resulting in the end of the Jewish Problem for ever ? Don't hold your breath.

  3. That message has a Magrittean quality.

    Now what? Is there going to be a war on beauty, irony and paradox?

    If you're in touch with those people, then an even meeker version to try would be:

    "It's okay to be white - isn't it?"

    Or if really getting under shitlibs' skin is the point, then I like:

    "I'm proud to black," said the black man.

    "I'm proud to be Asian," said the Asian man.

    "It's okay to be white," said the racist.

  6. It’s okay to be white if you are also transgender or Antifa. It’s also okay if you sit at the back of the bus and speak, respectfully, only when spoken to.

    Other than that, it’s okay that there’s no longer any meaningful work for your kind of people. Feel free to self-medicate with black tar, whatever, as long as you shut up.

    That's the point. The social contract went from being hectored by doing something agreed upon as racist to being hectored for who you are.

    It doesn't matter that the Front Nationale is no longer a neo-reactionary party. It doesn't matter that the Sweden Democrats have long left their skinhead gang roots.

    They don't like white people and see any attempt to protect their interests however measured or defensive as wrong.

    It went from it being wrong for whites to impose themselves on others to it being wrong for whites to seek not to be imposed upon. And this goes for inter-white issues of immigration in Europe too. They don't have roots so immigrants of any kind should be brought in to make sure the core population is swamped. It's ethnic dispossession.

    Hundreds of students at Coatesville (Pennsylvania) Area High School walked out of classes Friday morning after a social media post from schoolmates showed pumpkins carved with a swastika and KKK on them.

    Coatesville has had problems in the past. In 2013, the former superintendent and athletic director resigned after school officials discovered that they had exchanged racist text messages. Earlier this month, a black baby doll was found hanging in a Coatesville High School locker with a tie around its neck.

    Then, the photo was posted, with white students holding the pumpkins carved with racist symbols.

    “How are we supposed to come to this high school, knowing there are these prejudices?” Bladen said.

    The Chester County school is majority-minority: 47 percent white, 31 percent black, 18 percent Hispanic, 1 percent Asian, and 3 percent multiracial.

    A new ruling in Jewish law permitting a specific genetic test to be used as proof of Jewish descent for certain Ashkenazi Jews is being promoted as a possible solution for potentially hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens from the former Soviet Union (FSU) having difficulty proving their Jewish status.

    The ruling comes from Rabbi Yosef Carmel, who is both co-head of the Eretz Hemdah Institute for Advanced Jewish Studies and a senior rabbinical judge on the private Eretz Hemdah rabbinical court in south Jerusalem.

    The problem is that earlier claims of genetic proof for Judaism (with a trail, of course, to modern-day Israel) is that the evidence was skewed a bit. It placed sacred ancestors in the Middle East with genes that also mapped to central Asia. Kazakhstan anyone?

    [2] The photo of the poster saying IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE shows that it is not handwritten but (mass-)printed in a handwriting font (the repeated letters are identical in shape; the lower E looks narrower probably due to foreshortening as seen on a part of the paper that is not lying flat). So the racist poster-makers are trying to escape forensic identification. Those wascally wily white racists!

  41. Irfan said instigators create these posters to highlight what they see as a double standard around who is affected by discrimination.

    “[They think that] if it happens to white people it doesn’t really count, that’s the underlying theme that some of these groups are trying to highlight,” he said.

    The issue with this? The lack of historical context, he says.

    He said it’s important to acknowledge that inequality still exists between racial groups in Canada, often based on historical reasons.

    “A lot of these groups that are saying that Black Lives Matters should be classified as a hate group, for example, are the same ones that maybe don’t have the historical understanding around the significance of what has led us to this situation,” he said.

    See, this is why the lie that everyone is created equal — with white racism behind disparities in wealth, imprisonment rates etc between ethnic groups — is so central to the shoddy situation white people find ourselves in.

    The establishment across the West says that violence against minorities is worse than violence against white people because the victims are minorities.

    But the same establishment says violence against whites in South Africa can be ignored and/or is justified, even though white people are a minority there, because there is “widespread inequality” in that blacks are poorer than whites.

    It’s heads whites lose and tails non-whites win, and the situation is only going to get worse for people of European descent in the countries our ancestors built and maintained over centuries, as our numbers shrink in relation to hostile newcomers bearing ethnic grudges that the media and academic worlds are only too happy to further inflame.

    That's pretty good, but MacEwan U. criminology instructor Irfan Chaudhry pre-empted you with something even better:

    "He pointed to online forums that instruct readers to create the posters, but strip them of any obvious symbols like swastikas so they’re viewed as less obviously hateful."

    In other words, you can tell an awful lot about a poster without a swastika, like the one pictured. It was created with swastikas, then later stripped of them so that it would be falsely viewed as less obviously hateful than it really is.

    Chris Andersen, Dean of Native Studies, said in an email that it’s unlikely any faculty students saw the pumpkin as a “naïve or innocent joke,” given how close it was placed to their building.
    It’s far from the first racist incident on campus—someone tried to light the university’s Red River cart on fire two years ago—but Andersen said Halloween is “ground zero” for racist stereotypes.
    “Incidents like this have a longstanding history of caricaturing and attempting to diminish our cultures and communities,” he said.

    Very sobering is the 20116 immigration and ethnicity census stats released by Statistics Canada showing the rapid decline of Whites in Canada. The White percentage is now down to 73 percent, a drop of nearly 4 percent in just 5 years. Alberta, where this incident happened, saw one of the largest declines. Canada's immigration system has basically morphed in to a stealth passive aggressive form of ethnic cleansing.

    Some of these folks have been reading some Joseph Heller, that's all. They got this idea from Catch 22 in the part where the new Major wanted to have the men march in parades. He was dejected when told that would not be taken well. "Can I just cancel parades then?" he asked or something like that. The other officers felt sorry for him and figured there'd be no harm in that. The idea of the flyers cancelling the upcoming parade was to imply that there could have been a parade, but it was just cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

    Irfan said instigators create these posters to highlight what they see as a double standard around who is affected by discrimination.

    “[They think that] if it happens to white people it doesn’t really count, that’s the underlying theme that some of these groups are trying to highlight,” he said.

    The issue with this? The lack of historical context, he says.

    He said it’s important to acknowledge that inequality still exists between racial groups in Canada, often based on historical reasons.

    “A lot of these groups that are saying that Black Lives Matters should be classified as a hate group, for example, are the same ones that maybe don’t have the historical understanding around the significance of what has led us to this situation,” he said.
     

    See, this is why the lie that everyone is created equal — with white racism behind disparities in wealth, imprisonment rates etc between ethnic groups — is so central to the shoddy situation white people find ourselves in.

    The establishment across the West says that violence against minorities is worse than violence against white people because the victims are minorities.

    But the same establishment says violence against whites in South Africa can be ignored and/or is justified, even though white people are a minority there, because there is "widespread inequality" in that blacks are poorer than whites.

    It's heads whites lose and tails non-whites win, and the situation is only going to get worse for people of European descent in the countries our ancestors built and maintained over centuries, as our numbers shrink in relation to hostile newcomers bearing ethnic grudges that the media and academic worlds are only too happy to further inflame.

    Finally, a genetic test for being Jewish!

    To the consternation of many, I suspect that the outcome will be that there are a lot fewer Ashkenazi Jews who thought they were Jewish (in spite of family heritage, i.e. blond haired blue eyed Jews have a problem) ... or, there are a lot more Ashkenazi Jews who never knew they were Jewish.

    The problem is that earlier claims of genetic proof for Judaism (with a trail, of course, to modern-day Israel) is that the evidence was skewed a bit. It placed sacred ancestors in the Middle East with genes that also mapped to central Asia. Kazakhstan anyone?

    The author, Shlomo Sand, has a brilliant description on how the Ashkenazi Jews invented their racial heritage in the 19th Century in his book, "The Invention of the Jewish People," in competition with the other nationalist movements of the time. The book was, of course, not well received in Israel.

    Vancouver-based Lundin for Africa, the philanthropic arm of the Lundin Group of Companies, has pledged $100 million to the Clinton Foundation's recently announced Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative (CGSGI), which is aimed at alleviating poverty and building sustainable local economies in developing countries. The Lundin for Africa commitment will be aimed, in large part, at approved projects in Africa, where the Lundin Group has significant mining, oil and gas interests.

    The contribution, announced today by former President Bill Clinton, matches the $100 million individual donations made by Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra and Mexican businessman Carlos Slim when the initiative was launched last month in New York.

    It’s kind of worrying. They are deeming a note that says isn’t even necessarily a “white pride” note as the same to saying merely existing is also racist. Yea this will make people woke, but not in the way they hope.

    In their case, the thought of badthink people having kids and lots of them ensuring their eventual diminished demographic significance has to be denounced as strongly and in the most ironic “religious” like language.

    For those of us who realize the multi-generational long game, we are at peak immorality.

    Finally, a genetic test for being Jewish!

    To the consternation of many, I suspect that the outcome will be that there are a lot fewer Ashkenazi Jews who thought they were Jewish (in spite of family heritage, i.e. blond haired blue eyed Jews have a problem) ... or, there are a lot more Ashkenazi Jews who never knew they were Jewish.

    The problem is that earlier claims of genetic proof for Judaism (with a trail, of course, to modern-day Israel) is that the evidence was skewed a bit. It placed sacred ancestors in the Middle East with genes that also mapped to central Asia. Kazakhstan anyone?

    The author, Shlomo Sand, has a brilliant description on how the Ashkenazi Jews invented their racial heritage in the 19th Century in his book, "The Invention of the Jewish People," in competition with the other nationalist movements of the time. The book was, of course, not well received in Israel.

    1) It doesn’t compare whites to or even mention anyone else, so the whole offended/unsafe gambit is pretty well neutralized.

    3) Despite 1 and 2, progs will still lose their ever-lovin’ minds over it and won’t be able to resist making the case that, well, no, being white is not okay.

    A music festival in Halifax, Canada has apologized for “overt racism” following a volunteer staffer’s refusal to move to the back because she is Caucasian.

    According to the National Post, performer Lido Pimienta, who won the 2017 Polaris Prize, frequently asks all white members of her audience to move to the back and give up their seats to non-white audience members. They must do so regardless of whether they pay more for their seating.

    The Halifax Pop Explosion music festival is apologizing for the actions of a photographer who refused to acquiesce to Pimienta’s request during her October 19 show. Her refusal to do so was considered an “interruption” and deemed an act of “overt racism,” according to the festival’s board of directors, who are now promising to make changes to the event.

    The board promises to improve “anti-oppression and anti-racism training” for their staff next year, essentially asking them to give in to the demands of people who supposedly face more oppression than they do.

    “We are sorry that one of our volunteers interrupted your art, your show, and your audience by being aggressive and racist,” wrote vice-chairman Georgie Dudka on Facebook.

    Hundreds of students at Coatesville (Pennsylvania) Area High School walked out of classes Friday morning after a social media post from schoolmates showed pumpkins carved with a swastika and KKK on them.

Earlier this month, a black baby doll was found hanging in a Coatesville High School locker with a tie around its neck.

    Then, the photo was posted, with white students holding the pumpkins carved with racist symbols.

    “How are we supposed to come to this high school, knowing there are these prejudices?” Bladen said.

    The Chester County school is majority-minority: 47 percent white, 31 percent black, 18 percent Hispanic, 1 percent Asian, and 3 percent multiracial.

    > Where ever there is a white space, the swastikas are implied.

    That's pretty good, but MacEwan U. criminology instructor Irfan Chaudhry pre-empted you with something even better:

    "He pointed to online forums that instruct readers to create the posters, but strip them of any obvious symbols like swastikas so they’re viewed as less obviously hateful."

    In other words, you can tell an awful lot about a poster without a swastika, like the one pictured. It was created with swastikas, then later stripped of them so that it would be falsely viewed as less obviously hateful than it really is.

    It’s like those homeopathic remedies, where the active ingredient is diluted to the point where, statistically, not one molecule of it remains, and yet the potion ostensibly has curative powers. By the same token, the swastika taint lingers on the page. Somehow the paper “remembers”.

    Historians know of a racist pumpkin from Tbilisi, Georgia in the 7th century:

    "Near the end of the month, when winter had arrived, the residents of Tiflis openly ridiculed both Heraclius and Ziebil. On a pumpkin they drew a distorted picture of Ziebil, depicting him as if he were blind, since the Turks had narrow and small eyes. They then shot arrows at the pumpkin." - from my book The Jews of Khazaria, 2nd edition, 2006, pages 133-134

    "Seeing that, the besieged citizens began to parody the defeated; they brought a huge pumpkin upon which they drew a caricaturesque image of the 'king of the Huns,' which stressed his Mongoloid features, and placed this offensive image on the city wall; they also thrust a spear into the pumpkin..." - from Dan Shapira's article "Armenian and Georgian Sources on the Khazars: A Re-Evaluation" in The World of the Khazars, 2007, page 342

    Another big racism scandal in Canada:

    A music festival in Halifax, Canada has apologized for “overt racism” following a volunteer staffer’s refusal to move to the back because she is Caucasian.

    According to the National Post, performer Lido Pimienta, who won the 2017 Polaris Prize, frequently asks all white members of her audience to move to the back and give up their seats to non-white audience members. They must do so regardless of whether they pay more for their seating.

    The Halifax Pop Explosion music festival is apologizing for the actions of a photographer who refused to acquiesce to Pimienta’s request during her October 19 show. Her refusal to do so was considered an “interruption” and deemed an act of “overt racism,” according to the festival’s board of directors, who are now promising to make changes to the event.

    The board promises to improve “anti-oppression and anti-racism training” for their staff next year, essentially asking them to give in to the demands of people who supposedly face more oppression than they do.

    “We are sorry that one of our volunteers interrupted your art, your show, and your audience by being aggressive and racist,” wrote vice-chairman Georgie Dudka on Facebook.

    They're doing it with water too which is an even bigger deal.

    Exactly correct. Though rain does continue to fall from the sky in many places, and food doesn’t.

    But from the perspective of hive dwellers dependent upon the Queen for their existence, it’s the same either way, and more all the time with mean IQ heading south.

    Now try bringing both these matters to the supposed “alternative” thinkers on the left, or the “sustainability” mavens in government, academe, and NGOs.

    Or getting them even to read Michael Hudson as a point of departure for discussion.

    Look! Slow food at the Cheezy Penis***! Wonder if I can get a grant to write a coffeetable book about it!

    There’s also the issue of where went all those people who once upon a late-19th/early 20th century lived on and worked the “empty productive Russian farmland.” But asking about that is super-anathema.

    Did you catch the irony of this appearing in a Kristina Stenbeck/Metro International/Kinnivik AB outlet?

    Stenbeck formerly a big investor in Stockholm-listed farmland speculation company, Black Earth Farming.

    Along with her countryman the late oilman and tycoon Adolf Lundin. Who matched Carlos Slim's $100m donation to the Clinton Foundation about five months after Barack Obama declared his candidacy for POTUS in 2007.

    So if /pol/ can be this uppity and independent about rejecting white genocide/population replacement, what's going to happen when /pol/acks and other netizens start popularizing understanding of the global land grab that casts all humans as goyim (cattle), food as real estate, and literally will determine future famines for the sake of the bottom line?

    This is one of the major strategic and sustainability issues of our time, and you're not going to read about it in Carlos Slim's (hold that thought) or Jeff Bezos's outlets. I mean, Saudi princes, old petroleum engineers, mining concerns, drug lords, Swedish pension funds, hell, even Hyundai Heavy Industries invest in fertile Russian farmland.

    So does Israel:

    But you're not supposed to know about it. So here, have a ball.

    And if this isn't Big Ag/Big Pharma pay-to-play and political kickbacks, I don't know what the hell is:

    https://www.clintonfoundation.org/main/news-and-media/press-releases-and-statements/press-release-lundin-group-commits-100-million-to-clinton-giustra-sustainable-gr.html


    Vancouver-based Lundin for Africa, the philanthropic arm of the Lundin Group of Companies, has pledged $100 million to the Clinton Foundation's recently announced Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative (CGSGI), which is aimed at alleviating poverty and building sustainable local economies in developing countries. The Lundin for Africa commitment will be aimed, in large part, at approved projects in Africa, where the Lundin Group has significant mining, oil and gas interests.

    The contribution, announced today by former President Bill Clinton, matches the $100 million individual donations made by Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra and Mexican businessman Carlos Slim when the initiative was launched last month in New York.
     

    Targeted approach I guess.

    Many thanks for all the interesting info.

    It would be amusing, and instructive, if signs were put up with similar innocuously worded statements.

    “It’s OK to be black”

    “It’s OK to be Jewish”

    “It’s OK to be gay”

    What would be the response? And the response to taking them down? I feel the NYT might have something to say about the kind of people who take down these signs.

    They would be torn down and condemned as”microaggressions” for not being sufficiently enthusiastic…

    But what could triggered them more especially Barbara-Lerner Spectre might be this archived tweet. https://web.archive.org/web/20170815131536/https:/twitter.com/HarmfulOpinions/status/893167407891701761
