By no means is this list meant to be exhaustive, but rather these are my first thoughts on what I meant when I began this important conversation about white civil rights.
A little background first: White people in America have come to realize that we now possess fewer rights and protections than groups of other races. These manifest in several forms, in both public and privately driven variants. First, there are economic incentives which are specifically designated to help minorities instead of our people, like scholarships by race. Second, there are quota based systems where opportunities are required to be split along racial lines, such as affirmative action or how the DOT awards contract services. Thirdly, there are times when whites are provided less protections, for instance in how discrimination laws can never be used to protect a white person the same as a minority, not too far afield from my own recent dismissal. There may well be others, but I will start with these three.
The American ideal has always been meritocratic and calling for a level playing ground. The melting pot so often referenced by a media without deeper understanding worked without resentment specifically because no one was getting a free ride who immigrated here. But now, we see different groups gaming government and using it as well as civil society for the benefit of their respective people by rigging the system to favor their access to resources and opportunity. The situation is allowed to persist because white people, by and large, have kept to the sterile conversations about merit while the reality has obviously shifted away to favor those more aggressive of seeking their particular group – many of which are identitarian but not racial (e.g. LGBTQ, etc.).
This must stop. There are two outcomes which are acceptable. We could either see a return to a system where there are no privileged classes in America and true legal equality is realized for all citizens. Or, if the myriad interest groups which have great backing and influence continue to play their games, then for our own protection and the rights and continuation of our people, we must begin to do the same.
Although I have not yet received a compelling definition for why it should be considered racist for a white man to look out for white interests when the same would not be said of any other race, I am sure this will be the rallying cry. It should not be. Looking out for the welfare of one’s people is an act of love and consideration, and our problem in America across all groups is a lack of engagement with our community. White people have white people issues – many of which are terrible – including the heroin epidemic, the breakdown of the nuclear family, and needing to re-establish an equilibrium between men and women such that our children benefit instead of suffer.
I want to get to those conversations, and get the resources our people need to work on these issues. But, if we’re not allowed to talk about ourselves as such, and we’re not going to have everyone talk of strictly American issues, then we need help. And as we work together in a positive and constructive fashion, what will happen is we can get past this boogeyman of white guilt which has been deliberately cultivated by radicals seeking to displace our people to advance their own agendas. This must end. We have rights to equality, and we should assert them.
Within New Albion, we strive to work tirelessly for the equal protections of all races under Constitutional Law and in actual practice. It’s no secret to anyone living here we are the whitest region of America, and as such, we must begin working for the interest of those people – of our people – for the benefit of all people.
