I’m so sick of this kind of sanctimonious mental flatulence. Do they really think they are going to encourage solutions based dialogue by being racist toward people with white skin color? Are white people the only racist people?A controversy over an anti-racism campaign some local critics say is itself racist is roiling the Iron Range city of Duluth, Minn.
The Un-Fair Campaign addresses what it calls ‘white privilege’ with billboards, posters and online videos assigning guilt to people with taglines like, “Is white skin really fair skin?” and “I am a white man. That’s unfair.” The ads are plastered across a city where 90 percent of the population is Caucasian.
But some critics in the region say the ads make a blanket generalization of all white people.
“You can't open a discussion on race and hope to see it move in a positive direction when you raise the topic by stereotyping an entire race,” Phil Pierson wrote on the Facebook page he started and dubbed STOP Racist Unfair Campaign, started by local resident Phil Pierson.
“It will be perceived as biased and accusatory. Instead of spreading love and togetherness, it spreads animosity and hate, teaches a new generation to point fingers and focus on the color of our skin instead of the idea that we're all human, and we're all in this together,” Pierson added.
I’m all for the elimination of racism but constantly playing the race card and being racist yourself won’t reduce racism.
