    057 WHITNEY DOW: "The Whiteness Project"

    in Self Help

    What does it really mean to be white? And how do white people define themselves in a post-Ferguson world full of rage and protest? Today on BOLD, LeGrande Green interviews Whitney Dow, the award-winning director of “The Whiteness Project,” an explosive documentary about race and cultural identity in America.

     

    Whitney tells LeGrande: “People see this as controversial but I don't. I simply wanted to create a vehicle for white people to look at themselves. Whiteness is an attribute that affects everything in our everyday life and our interactions. But no one talks about it.”

    “The Whiteness Project” features intimate interviews with 21 people from Buffalo, New York, discussing race in a frank–and often cringeworthy–fashion. People like “Jason” who says, “For some reason, some black people hold on to the back-in-the-day slave thing. Should slavery be something that because it happened we owe black people more? Absolutely not.” Another woman expresses her fear at how “black men in general” take a smile as “an invitation to approach.”

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "The step-by-step process that was used by the press: First they fanned the flame in such a manner to create hysteria in the mind of the public. And then they shift gears and fan the flame in a manner designed to get the sympathy of the public. And once they go from hysteria to sympathy, their next step is to get the public to support them in whatever act they're getting ready to go down with. You're dealing with a cold calculating international machine, that's so criminal in its objectives and motives that it has the seeds of its own destruction, right within. They use the press to emphasize that white hostages are being held by [inaudible]--imagine that--or white priests, white missionaries, white nuns--they don't say nuns: white nuns. You know what the paper said right here in Detroit: white missionaries, not just a missionary; a white nun--as if there's a difference between a white nun and a black nun; or a white priest and a black priest; or if the light that's in a white skin is more valuable than a light within a black skin. This is what they're implying! And the press--look at the press when this thing was going on--and you will see what I'm talking about. They're vicious in their whiteness.


    But still, I wouldn't judge them just 'cause they're white, or they'd call me a racist. [I'm] judging by their deeds, by their conscious behavior--and you know how they've been consciously behaving in the Congo, and how they consciously behave in Vietnam, and how they consciously behave right now in Alabama and Mississippi. So you and I got to get conscious, and start behaving in a way that we can offset this thing before it's too late--and this is what they don't want to hear." Malcolm El Haji Shabazz . The idea that Africa is free after liberation is something we must examine throughly. For we must FREE THE LAND IF WE ARE TO BE FREE! FREE THE LAND!!! ONE SETTLER ONE BULLET!

    MelaniNation Presents: Is The Knowledge Really Sweeter at a HBCU?

    in Culture

    1. Why do we have HBCU's 2. Do HBCU's hold us back or project us forward? 3. How do they truly stack against each other (statistically: graduation rate, retention rate, number of degrees, value of degree, return on investment, starting salary, etc.) 4. Why did you choose HBCU or PWI. 5. Can HBCU's ever reach PWI size or stature. 1. Do HBCUs better fit African Americans Academically? 2. Why don't more black parents expose their children to HBCUs? Is there a culture stigma behind it? 3. Could the top HBCUS compare to the Top Ivy League schools? 4. Is pledging the divine 9 at PWI different than at HBCU? Is there still a need for the divine 9 at HBCUs? 1. How do we work to remove classism, elitism, sexism, etc. from HBCU culture? Is that even feasible? I.e. How do HBCUs avoid breeding Kanyes who are only angry until they have access to the parts of whiteness they envy? 2. How do pro black students at PWIs handle their experience? 3. Some black people feel unsafe in both spaces. Remedy? 1.Why do black students go to pwis only to try and recreate the HBCU experience? 2. Can a black student ever feel completely welcome at a pwi? 3. Do black students in the north hear enough about HBCUs in highschool? 4. Why do some black students choose pwis for "diversity" but only hang out with the black population?

    Divided Society

    in Pop Culture

    How Society is divided by Political ideology - left and right and Racial lines


    Politically the left and right are at each other's throats, to the point that if one says black the other says white. Some examples, Netanyahu getting re-elected and the reaction from it; the left championed occupy movement and villified the Tea Party and the right did the opposite, not voting for Obama is racist, Abortion - if you are pro-life - you imprison a woman in her body if you are pro-choice you are a murderer,...


    Racial Divisions: Everything is about race, elections are broken down by race, gender, age,... if you want to marry your own race or religion it is considered racist by some, Jackson and Sharpton, when Trayvon Martin was shot - Zimmerman was a white hispanic but no one cares when blacks kill each other; Affirmative action, quotas,...


    Reverse discrimination against white - AA and quotas, there is Black history month and Ebony magazine, Latin Grammy's and hispanic heritage month, gay pride parade,... nothing for whites except white privelage - check your privelage, whiteness project, accusations of too many whites on wall street, Madison avenue, corporate America, ... White men are the most discriminated institutionally
