Anti-racism campaign moving beyond billboards, Duluth

The Un-fair Campaign has made quite a splash since it was unveiled only two weeks ago. The campaign is intended to raise awareness about “white privilege” — institutional racism that gives white people unearned advantages over others simply because of the color of their skin.

But its provocative billboards have sparked a backlash in Duluth and beyond. A Facebook group called the “Stop Racist Unfair Campaign” has attracted hundreds of members critical of the campaign’s tactics.


Other parts of the country are also taking note. KPCC, the major public radio station in Los Angeles, aired a 40-minute segment on the campaign on the Patt Morrison Show.

Organizers are now moving on to its second phase, a series of discussions, speeches and films scheduled around Duluth. They aim to encourage dialogue and move beyond the soundbites featured on the billboards.

The first event take place at 7 p.m. tonight, with the screening of a video talk called “Power, Privilege and Difference” by sociologist Allan Johnson, at the First United Methodist Church. Others, including a series of three community dialogues facilitated by the St. Paul Foundation as part of their Facing Race Initiative, are scheduled throughout February and beyond.

    Wow ! What have white people been put through now or In history ? What you should be outraged at is the fact an stetements are in fact true an even more horrindous than mentioned an that white people are given a fair advantage just based on their look. Not even having the same skill set as their colored counter partners.only a white person would think that we have a problem.

    In Mexico, Mexicans control all of their own government and private institutions, so that is Mexican Privilege.

    In Africa, Blacks control everything, so that is Black privilege.

    In Asia, Asians control everything from top to bottom and that means they have Asian privilege.

    The only “privilege” these anti-Whites combat, is that of White people in their own countries and that is the point.

    Anti-Racist is a codeword for Anti-White.

    After reading that hateful screed, I am of the opinion that Tim Wise is the new Adolf Hitler, except its Whites he wants to genocide.

    I find it incredible he is allowed to work as “Diversity Consultant”, after he wrote that piece.

    If he wrote about Blacks or Jews in that way, instead of Whites, he would never be allowed to work in his field again.

    So why do White people put up with it? They are inciting racial hatred against us and they know full well what they are doing.

    Only white countries force blended out of existence.

    Anti-whites have no fig leaf to hide their naked anti-whiteness.

    I challenge the anti-whites to move into a national media public discussion with real opposition about the “multi-culturalism” white genocide agenda.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    1. Flood White Countries and ONLY White countries with non-whites.

    2. Force integrate these same immigrants in White Communities This is all done with the aid of Federal Laws.

    3. Push interracial relationships night and day in all the media and even the newspaper advertisements in White Countries and only White Countries.

    4. Anyone that objects is called a racist.

    These same anti-whites will inform us of our inevitable brown future. This is Genocide?

    Anti-racist is code word for anti-white.

    Japan is 98.5% Japanese. Japan does not let foreigners vote and kicks them out all the time. Japan is RICH and has a horrendous colonial history.

    Yet no one is Demanding the Japanese in Japan, be replaced with a Blended humanity to end “racism”.

    They only Demand this of White countries.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

    Anti-whites love to name call WHITES anyway they can. The newest term is “WHITE PRIVILEGE.” Its the old defamation of WHITES. Its propaganda in support of PC which says all WHITES are guilty for being white.

    Its obvious that the anti-whites wants to replace whites with non-whites.

    Defamation is the first step in a program of genocide of white people.

    Anti-white history is not real history. Sorry you have been duped by the re-ed system (public schools) to believe lies.

    The narrative today is anti-white history. Whites resist the multi-racial state because multi-racialism leads to the disappearance of whites by genocide.

    You are a helpful tool in the systems fight against white people. You are just an anti-white tool.

    How to spot an anti-White.

    1) They deny that race exists; race is just a social construct.

    2) They blame everything on White people… who don’t exist.

    3) They wish for GENOCIDE via mass immigration, assimilation and forced integration, but ONLY in White countries

    4) They try to justify GENOCIDE – see point number two.

    5) They say that any White people that object to this should not be allowed to speak because they’re BAD!!!

    Anti racism is a code word you HIDE BEHIND as really you are anti White.

    White racism and other urban legends.

    DEFINITION:An urban legend, urban myth, urban tale, or contemporary legend, is a form of modern folklore consisting of stories that may or may not have been believed by their tellers to be true. As with all folklore and mythology, the designation suggests nothing about the story’s veracity, but merely that it is in circulation, exhibits variation over time, and carries some significance that motivates the community in preserving and propagating it.

    So little racism, so much anti-racism. Anti-racists need a lot of racism to justify their anti-white bias and hatreds. They must find racism where it does not exist. Its just about controlling and manipulating white people and supporting the ongoing program of white genocide.

    Anti-racists confuse their opinions with reality.

    White people don’t need to address the tenets of “white privilege”, it’s just hateful Jewish communist nonsense. There’s no dialog with hate.

    Mayor Don Ness is an effeminate queer.

    I’ll support an anti-racism campaign that acknowledges that racism cuts in all directions. Whites don’t have a monopoly on hate, but the Duluth campaign has a monopoly on finger-pointing. Far more damaging than constructive.

    I wonder what these “talks” will be like. I no longer attend any “anti-racism” programs hosted at my job site because they have degenerated into a lecturer spewing hate and making statements that if we, as employees, said, we’d be fired.

    I say “degenerated” because I attended some excellent workshops on team-building in multicultural workplaces in the 80s.It feels as if the folks who led those have all retired and only the mean-spirited remain.

    “white privilege” — institutional racism that gives white people unearned advantages over others simply because of the color of their skin.

    This is the part that angers me the most, this nonexistent “white privilege” BS. Neither myself nor any other white person I have ever known has been given special treatment or “unearned advantages” simply for being white. Its clearly completely false and intended to incite racial violence against whites by blacks, mexicans, and any other slimebag minority race that wants to show their true color. Just because some pantywaist, overprivileged, race traitor libturds hate themselves and life after they were brainwashed into believing only whites are racist, I and my fellow Caucasian brothers and sisters are now stigmatized with a blight that we did not ask for and do not deserve. Libturds have earned their place right along side all the racist blacks and mexitrash and as a result, those libturds will get the same as their vile racist compatriots… death.
