As a defender of America's white privilege, Tucker Carlson gets mighty pissed about those who dare to even speak of it. On Saturday's Fox & Friends, he attacked a professor for generating a conversation about white privilege, an act that, in Tucker's white privileged world, is racist. Huh??
Thanks to the right wing website, "Campus Reform," which exposed this latest bogus "outrage," the right wing is having a collective hissy fit because, OMG, a Lehigh University professor has published "10 Cracka Commandments" - a list of things that white folks should think about when it comes to, dare I say it, white privilege. So who better to join Tucker Carlson in opining about this egregious case of reverse racism than Caleb Bonham who is always on the alert of liberal campus bias and who, in 2013, validated Fox hysteria about the mythical black on white crime epidemic.
Tucker began the patented Fox & Friends "Trouble with Schools" segment by "updating" us on "this latest example of lunacy on campus." He reported that a LehighU. professor "sparked [right wing generated] controversy" with his 10 Cracka Commandments. Given Fox's history of toxic race baiting, the banner was rich with irony: "A Lesson in Race Baiting." He described the "commandments" as a "list of rules" to help white people understand where they fit in the "black lives matter movement."
The "Trouble with Schools" graphic appeared, again, as Carlson introduced Caleb Bonham whose conservative campus capers include interviewing women about abortion in order to slut shame them. Looking earnestly at Carlson, Bonham described the "commandments" as "ridiculous." After a healthy dose of giggling, Carlson asked if "cracka" is a slur. Bonham responded that "it's a racial slur for white people." He asked "how that's acceptable is beyond me" and asserted that society is beyond judging people by the color of their skin. (This is said on Fox News which hosts Ann Coulter who hates brown people? OH, THE IRONY!)
Bonham expressed his disapproval of the first "commandment" exhortation that "black lives matter" because white people believe "all lives matter." In working in a not so clever reference to abortion he said that liberals only believe that "viable" lives matter which, of course, is the basis for Roe v Wade but that might be "beyond" Bonham's grasp of the issue...
Carlson, who once called for a "white guy appreciation day" whined that this is unbelievable and genuinely racist."
The 3rd Cracka Commandment could have been written with Tucker Carlson (and Fox News) in mind: "Always remember that ignorance is real and the product of privilege."
Blacks have the right to take pride in their race. Whites don’t.
Blacks can never be racist. Whites are always racist, even if they don’t try to be.
Blacks get to play the race card. Whites don’t.
Blacks never have to feel guilty about being black. Whites are trained to feel guilty about being white.
Blacks have the right to make blacks only organizations like the Black Student Union and the Congressional Black Caucus. Whites don’t.
Blacks have the right to never take responsibility for their own actions. Anything bad which happens to a black person can be blamed on racism or white people. Whites have to take responsibility and apologize for their actions.
Rich black people have a right to be rich. Rich white people don’t.
Black people have the right to demonize white people. White people don’t have the right to demonize black people.
Black people are excused when they are prejudiced against white people. White people are never excused for prejudice against black people.
Black people are a “protected class.” White people are not.
Violent crimes by whites on blacks are “hate crimes.” Violent crimes by blacks on whites are just “random” crimes.
Blacks have the right to affirmative action and minority set-asides. Whites have to earn their positions.
Blacks are “cool.” Whites are “squares” and “rednecks.”
Blacks have the right to say words like “nigger,” which whites are never allowed to use. They have the right to incessantly repeat the word “nigger” in front of white people, to intimidate them and keep them in their place.
Blacks can make the most racially insensitive comments and, more often than not, no one blinks twice. They are allowed to insult others without repercussion.1
Blacks can spend their rent money on designer handbags and then complain about how they don’t have the same economic opportunities as everyone else. And they get away with it.2
Black men are sexual supermen. White men are sexually inadequate. Black men have huge penises. White men have small, inadequate penises.
Blacks have “civil rights”. Whites don’t.
Blacks are in prison because of racism. Whites are in prison because they’re criminals.
Black jury members have the right to acquit criminals, if they’re black.
Blacks have the right to put a halt to any policy, statement, symbol, statistic, outcome, word or expression they find offensive. Whites have no such rights.
Blacks are morally superior to whites.
“[Blacks] enjoy cultural cache around the world as victors over oppression and the hard reality of what that looks like at this point in world history. The music that they enjoy, the clothes that they wear, their very mannerisms carry a certain amount of gravitas.”3
Blacks can assign collective racial guilt to “you white folks.” White people cannot do the reverse because that would be racist.
White people everywhere, and at all times, bear guilt for the crimes of a minority of white people in the past (e.g., slave owners, Adolf Hitler). Making blacks bear guilt, as a race, for the despicable crimes of their criminal minority is stereotyping, racist, and an insult to reason; after all, no one should ever be blamed for the acts of some unrelated person.
Blacks have “black culture.” Whites are not allowed to have white culture.
African-American studies is a celebration of blackness and black culture. Whiteness studies is a demonization of white people and white culture.
White people need to undergo diversity/sensitivity training. Black people don’t.
“… any generalization—favorable or unfavorable—about any minority that someone does not like is by definition “racist” and deserves to be suppressed—as long as it is said by a white person. Black diversity consultants, in contrast, can parade, without a shred of empirical evidence, the grossest racial and ethnic stereotypes with virtual impunity."4
It’s racist to point out racism by blacks. It’s never racist to point out racism by whites.
Whites have to walk on eggshells around blacks. Blacks don’t give a shit what whites think.
Blacks have the right to riot and commit violent acts in response to perceived grievances. White people have to obey the law at all times.
Blacks have the right to never be portrayed as criminals or lowlifes in films or on TV. Bad guys on the screen must always be White.
Blacks have the right to never be ridiculed, mocked, belittled or laughed at. Whites have no such right.
Black criminals have the right to have their race censored in media reports.
Facts which cause blacks embarrassment or cast them in a bad light must be suppressed. Facts which cause whites embarrassment or cast them in a bad light are reported as is.
Blacks can silence and intimidate whites by calling them racist. Whites can’t silence and intimidate blacks because that would be racist.
Forcing whitey to apologize shows black power and clout. Whites can never force blacks to apologize because that would constitute a lynching.
Whites are held to a system of ‘sensitivity’ requirements that do not apply to blacks.
“Whites are monitored, pestered, and punished for preposterous reasons—for a look, for an innocent word, for wearing a T-shirt, for expressing a plausible argument—but blacks can say almost anything with perfect impunity.”5
“In discussions of race between black people and white people the conscious black person is always right; is always the ultimate authority on questions having to do with race and racism; must always be regarded as the ‘injured party,’ or the oppressed. . . . [Whites] cannot possibly be expected to be objective about questions of race.”6
Blacks may work for explicitly racial goals but whites may not.
Blacks are permitted to notice race. Whites are not.
“It is quite acceptable for either party to explicitly go after the black, Hispanic, or even the Jewish vote. In fact both parties gain an indispensable moral authority by doing so. But it is absolutely verboten for either party, or any white candidate, to appeal to whites as a racial identity group. Racial identity is simply forbidden to whites in America and across the entire Western world. Black children today are hammered with the idea of racial identity and pride, yet racial pride in whites constitutes a grave evil. Say ’I’m white and I’m proud’ and you are a National Socialist.”7
A black who punches a White person is a hero standing up to oppression. A White person who punches a black is a racist.
It can be publicly admitted that blacks are superior to Whites in certain pursuits (i.e. basketball). It can never be publicly admitted that Whites are superior to blacks in other pursuits (i.e. winning Nobel prizes in science).
When blacks are overrepresented in a desirable field, it is due to their abilities. When Whites are overrepresented in a desirable field, it is due to racism. When blacks are overrepresented in an undesirable field, it is due to racism. When Whites are overrepresented in an undesirable field, it is their own fault.
Most African countries are made up almost entirely of blacks, and have some of the world’s highest birth rates. Most European countries consist of White people having to live alongside blacks and other non-whites, and have some of the world’s lowest birth rates.
