White? More Like Racist

Half Sigma posted the following back in May 2006, although it has only just come to my attention. It was taken from a Seattle Public Schools website, although the link is now defunct.

Cultural Racism:
Those aspects of society that overtly and covertly attribute value and normality to white people and Whiteness, and devalue, stereotype, and label people of color as “other”, different, less than, or render them invisible. Examples of these norms include defining white skin tones as nude or flesh colored, having a future time orientation, emphasizing individualism as opposed to a more collective ideology, defining one form of English as standard, and identifying only Whites as great writers or composers.

Half Sigma makes a big fuss over the 'future time orientation' part, and rightly so, but there's an awful lot more here that I find worrying.

Believe in individualism? You're racist.

Making plans for your future? You disgust me, you piece of shit racist.

Use standard English? RACIST.

Can only think of white composers? FILTHY FUCKING RACIST NAZI.

It's pretty clear where this is headed. I guess all those black conservatives I've met throughout my life are just race traitors, because as we all know, black has the same meaning as 'collectivist.'

Wait, who's patronising and stereotyping now?

Take out the 'cultural' part and we get the following:

So you're white? RACIST.
