He wrote:

Your defense of whiteness looks like a fish contorting its body every-way imaginable to get off the hook. But I’ll be blunt; the whiteness you so defend invented ‘white people’, created a ‘white race’, created a ‘racial hierarchy’, created ‘racism’, and yes, your whiteness is the very epitome of what it means to be ‘race-ist’. Your whiteness owns it and it’s up to you to do something about it.

I’m saying:

Okay, okay, let’s cut to the chase. Some, if not most people, are already aware that racial classification was invented by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach (1752–1840), a white anthropologist, in the past, it was partly done to categorize and justify racial hierarchy.

But, defending whiteness? How does one defend whiteness? So according to this writer, if a white person decides they are not having any of this social justice bull shit of white privilege or subconscious bias, and take it upon themselves to defend themselves and their integrity, it is deemed ‘defending whiteness’.

If anyone knows what defending whiteness means, could you please tell me in the comment?

These guys just come up with phrases that are packed with empty meaning. Words intended to do nothing but stir hate.

It gets interesting.

He says, ‘your whiteness is the epitome of what it means to be racist’. This just takes my mind back to history. It gives me the same energy as that of the pogroms that the Jews had to face. Hitler referred to the Jews as vermins as a justification for the brutal killing of the Jews.

If just being alive is being racist, one might as well not bother trying to be nonracist. How can someone just have this vitriol attitude towards another fellow man, it’s bizarre! It’s as though they have really taken this racism thing beyond what it actually is and turned it into biology. Racism would be a biological concept in the not too distant future if care isn’t taken. It would be under the topic ‘pathogens’ and white people would be the carrying host. I wouldn’t want to know the kind of white people he lives with for him to…
