White Man, white men, and whiteness

White Man vs white men

—- yes.

And “whiteness” is the an ideological construct which functions off the sign of white skin, and is embedded in the politics of global identity.

Hence, white people, historically immune from race, can work to deconstruct the systemization of whiteness by racializing their bodies as political identities to thus bring into the light and speak about the experience that is their own racial identity that is white.

Thereby all people become empowered through the common recognition by speaking about that which regularly remains silent in the concept known as human. For it is the ideal of the common human being that presently perpetuates the global systemic oppression of whiteness by refusing to admit the biases embedded in the very concept and experience of skin color, as though ‘race’ does not exist simply because it has no biological bases of truth.

Of course it doesn’t; race is a social construct intensionally fabricated by people of light skin and institutionalized through ideological and technological instruments for the purpose of implementing and maintaining power for lighter skinned people.

By acknowledging my privilege as a white person, as well as acknowledging the experience that goes hand and hand with it, I thereby invite myself into the experience of oppression, instead of denying it through justification, and as well begin to be able to acknowledge and notice the experience of people of color, to thus work toward that reality which includes all humans equitably.

This does not mean I work to remove my identity as though it is ontologically wrong or improper. Rather; by recognizing what I am, I thereby help others to recognize what they are such that we all become more free to pursue our potential being a human being.

By recognizing the system which grants me privilege, I begin to destabilize that which is oppressing myself.

Avoidance and denial, lesson #1

Anger and attacking the person that is making accusation is often the first response of a person in denial against the truth of himself.

Notice how the republican senators acted yesterday at the hearing. They, and people like them are who needs to go. They divert the attention away from the boys club and the behavior that is permitted as an institutional maximum by referring to the very rules that support that kind of bad behavior, as if that institution justifies their behavior without their even having to talk about it.

They and Kavanaugh are indignant because their facade of righteousness is being challenged. And they feel their character is beyond reproach; but it is in question because they see themselves as insulated from such line of view, that they should not have to answer about their actions because their institutionalism is supposed to shield them from such scrutiny.

The basic truth is that they are immoral in areas that we no longer allow to be excused, and they are using the institution to avoid.

This is the issue we are up against: the Institutional sexism and racism of the American government.

I don’t know about you, but going forward, I’m going to vote only for women and people of color candidates. White men: if Kavanaugh is brought in, then you have lost my vote across the board.

I dont even care any more. 😛
