"It's hard to see racism when you're white" billboards roil Duluth

This billboard has some folks so upset they've threatened the Duluth mayor.
New anti-racism billboards in Duluth have sparked a heated debate.

The billboards, created by the Un-Fair Campaign, tell passersby that "It's hard to see racism when you're white," but some white folks in the predominately caucasian community object to being singled out and argue the campaign contradicts itself by using racism to combat racism.

Phil Pierson, creator of an anti-Un-Fair Campaign Facebook page, told the Duluth News Tribune that he thinks "it's a misguided and contradictory campaign."

"Duluth cannot afford this kind of hate," he added.

While Pierson's objections are civil and principled, others who are offended by the billboards have gotten downright threatening. The Star Tribune reports that Mayor Don Ness -- a supporter of the Un-Fair Campaign -- received a message telling him to "Die, scum, die."

But proponents of the ads argue that the "it's hard to see racism when you're white" message is especially important in a relatively homogenous community like Duluth, which is 90 percent white.

Duluth is 90 percent white.


Ellen O'Neill, executive director of the Duluth YWCA, one of the campaign's 15 co-sponsors, told the Strib that "it's possible to never interact with a person of color here, [which] makes the problem more invisible." She said that only 25 percent of Duluth's black students and 34 percent of American Indian students graduate from high school in four years, compared with 80 percent of white students. Furthermore, while only 18 percent of Duluth's whites live in poverty, 67 percent of blacks and 56 percent of American Indians are poor.

According to its website, The Un-Fair Campaign's mission is "to raise awareness about white privilege in our community, provide resources for understanding and action, and facilitate dialogue and partnership that result in fundamental, systemic change towards racial justice."

Maybe the billboards will get a few Duluthians thinking about the racial disparities that are all too easy to overlook. But is it socioeconomics or racism that generates the inequalities referred to by O'Neill? After all, there are plenty of poor whites in Duluth, but few would blame their plight on racism. It's easy to ascribe one cause for phenomena like poverty and low graduation rates, but the full scope of the problem goes beyond white folks being blind to racism.

I think the idea is simple, just behave(good behaviors) the same way with everyone. Extending a friendly hand is much easier, more enjoyable, more gratifying than not extending a hand at all. No matter where you are on the socio-economic ladder, the perpetual good behavior toward everyone will actually lift everyone. Being human is the similarity all of us share. The rest of our differences is what makes us individuals. Variety is the spice of life and all these varieties should be appreciated.

I'm offended, not because I'm white, but because I'm a deaf woman. My gay friend is offended, too. I guess gay men just really don't understand how bigotry feels. As a deaf woman, I guess I don't understand how it feels either. He only lost his first job for being gay, got kicked out of his family, been beaten, made fun of, accused of spreading AIDS. What does he know of bigotry?And me, who finds it VERY difficult to get a job, very difficult to even get a driver's license thanks to some people, who get treated like an idiot because I talk "funny", who is ignored while everyone communicates with a family member ABOUT me as if I'm the family dog..I know NOTHING of being treated as less than because..well, I'm white.

 

The definition of racism is attributing something to a group of people based on the color of their skin. You've attributed that I do not understand "racism" because I'm white. Racism is no different than audism, sexual discrimination, religious discrimination. It's all the same hate. The answer to that hate and intolerance is NOT reverse racism, but unity to rid ourselves of ALL intolerance. Not divide all intolerance among all the different groups.

Who the hell is Tim Wise?  Oh I get it, he's some guy who spoke out against racism, and so you racists all stereotype the rest of us by assuming we all listen to him.  Nope, never heard of him, and I was never indoctrinated by anyone either.  Growing up no one ever tried to talk to me about race - I figured out my views on my own, thank you very much.  While I don't consider myself an expert, I'll say this: when the people liking your comments are using the Confederate flag as their icon, that's how you know you're on the wrong side of history.

I don't hate my race or feel any guilt for my existence - I had nothing to do with being born white, it was just luck of the draw.  Similarly, I don't see the reason in hating on people because they just happened to be born black, Hispanic, etc.  Your shrill, irrational cries of 'anti-white racism' just make you look like fools, just like your failure to provide any citations for the same handful of 'facts' you throw at the comments page any time you see an article about race.  Your side of the argument is losing because people like me notice that your side is full of lies, bigotry, and general idiocy.  On this very page, we get gems like 'women are weak and inferior,' and therefore 'not good at sports' - ignoring the fact that this has nothing to do with the subject at hand, I'm sure it will come as a huge surprise to all those professional female athletes out there!  That's what makes me - someone in the middle - more likely to side with the anti-racists, because your side is full of idiots who don't understand that two populations with a different median can still have a huge overlap in their distributions.  Or do they think Woody Allen can beat up Chyna?  Or that the chuckleheads on this comment page are smarter than Neil Degrasse Tyson?  It seems to me that either our species is just irrevocably stupid on average, or that our culture (and by extension its education system) does not place enough value on intellect, because I'm not seeing this vaunted superiority of white intellect - I'm seeing my 99th percentile scores used to inflate the average of a bunch of mouth-breathers who think far too highly of themselves.

I appreciate the organization and the words of the campaign speak truth. The reason why many White object or feel offended is because they do not want to be reminded that they are racist and practice racism whether directly or indirectly, overtly or covertly. I have come to the conclusion that no matter the campaign, there are just some White people who do not like people of color or anyone that is not so-called White. As Michael Bradley puts it in his book the Iceman Inheritence, it is a psychological condition of the caucasian race, since they are the true minorities of the world, they have to build this false sense of superiority over others. Eckhart Tolle speaks on this issue as well, he says, it is the collective mind that has gone literally mad. I mean one can just look at the history of White people and see that their race has some real psychological issues that have long plagued humanity, the ecological system, and the planet. Yet, White people see nothing wrong...

To "Sick of White People"... How do you know I am unaware of the blood on my ancestors hands?  How do you know that i never think about racism or it's legacy of shame and violence and oppression?  Did you know that I am White but I am poor and cannot afford to go to school or get a leg up in life and am stuck at low wage jobs, no insurance, no health care, no options...

Maybe, YOU are racist if you think that all white people are ignorant and the enemy and privileged and can just go out and become CEOs on Wall street anytime they want.  There is MUCH discrimination against poor Whites and no voice in society for them and no one listening anyway.  You are just as guilty of discrimination.

There are rich/selfish/exploiting/violent jerks who put profit before people all over the world in every color of the rainbow.  Just look at how "Pimps" enslave "Hos", how gangs enslave youths, how capitalism enslaves us all!

To make White people the enemy and preach blaming and victim-hood for people of color is just plain short-sided and irresponsible and such bad community-building I don't even know where to begin!  It's basically reinforcing racial divisions instead of uniting them! 

I have actually been singled out and targeted by violence for being white (and poor), and it is no fun - I have been yelled at on the bus, or walking down the street and called a White bi**h, a "white devil", attacked by a group that wanted to "kill the white b**ch", and robbed. (All this while I was working for social justice with at-risk inner-city kids of color!)

That is why this kind of blame-speech is misplaced and dangerous.  It misses the point and further segregates and separates people into villains and victims!

Well, fuck. How did white people win the west? By murderous racism. How were the frontiers of Australia won? By murderous racism. The descendants of those murderers don't bear the guilt of those atrocities, but the lives that they have now in the countries that they are in now are the fruits of murderous racism. To ignore that fact and get all offended that someone should remind you that you are white and ignorant of the blood on your hands is ridiculous. To all the white people in North and South America, South Africa and Australia: you only exist now in those places because your forebears were murderous racists.

My problem with these signs is that instead of reducing racism, it perpetuates it in a different form. 

The truth is that it's hard to see racism if you're the majority. As a reduced melanin American, I've been in majority black neighborhoods frequently throughout my life. Sometimes it's made me feel a little bit uncomfortable, and I think I've been treated in a non-equal manner by some service providers. 

But then I turn it around and think - this is what blacks feel like most of the time.

The billboards are racist anti white propaganda, nothing more. Look into the black violent predatory crime situation in Philadelphia, Detroit or Chicago – or just about ANY high density black area for that matter. How many blacks feel scared and threatened when they are in majority white areas? The answer is not many and many blacks leave black majority areas as soon as they have the financial means to do so yet how many whites feel threatened when in black majority areas? The answer is the vast majority do and this black violent crime problem is the wedge that divides the races, not prejudice because of skin color but rather rational and informed bias due to the vastly different amounts of threatening criminal behavior found in the black majority areas. The race problem is obvious, it’s not skin color, it's the vast moral divide between the races and attempting to make whites feel guilty for seeing racial differences honestly won't work. People will always do what is necessary to protect themselves from harm and for whites, unfortunately it means keeping plenty of distance from black majority areas. Also, if their racist position about whites were true, the very dark skinned Indians (from India) would suffer the same bias as blacks do from whites but they don’t do they? It's because you won't see them on the city streets selling crack in broad daylight. When whites no longer feel threatened when in black majority areas your racial bias problem will disappear and only blacks can solve that problem so perhaps they should try shaming them into submission instead. So many blacks remain outsiders in America due to their own behavior, nothing more.

The whole "anti-racist" line is nothing but code for "anti-White". In any city around the country, minorities = crime; White people can't be blamed for trying to safeguard their own existence and a future for their children.

Racism is simply a slur that can be hurled at White people,and only White people.  You never hear ofa Black person being called a racist. Since racism is just naming calling what we need is an intelligent logicalapproach to the problem cause by having different races interact.

To begin let us agree to see that Black people are pro-Blackand White people are pro-White.  MartinLuther King Jr. was a pro-Black person as is Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, MuhammadAli, and Louis Farrakhan; as was Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X.  Pro-Black organizations include NAACP, CORE, Nationof Islam, the Congressional Black Caucus, and perhaps a thousand other organizationsmake up the pro-Black conglomeration.

These people and organizations are committed to Blacks achievingpolitical power and wealth.  It is thatsimple.  None of them by any search ofthe imagination can be considered to be for equal justice, equal treatment, orany other form of equality.  Take note ofthe National Basketball Association.  TheNBA is wildly overpopulated with Blacks. But no pro-Black person or pro-Black organization is pressing for the NBAto become equal.

The beat weapon than the pro-Blacks have going for them intheir conflict with White people is the charge of racism and the entire racism industry.  It is a one way street where they drive overthe helpless White pedestrians trying to go about their daily business.

The White people of America are disorganized.  They have no comparable pro-White activists,advocates or organizations to offset the overwhelming attacks against them.  In fact the White people have many Whitesworking against them.  In the conflictbetween Blacks and Whites, Blacks have the privilege.

3,446 blacks lynched 1882-1968 Black-on-black homicides in 2005 alone: 7,387 .

Nearly 2x as many blacks killed by blacks in 1 year than lynched in 86 years!!!

According to the FBI and US Department of Justice, at least 94% of the approximately 8,000 blacks killed in the USA every single year are killed by another black.  That's about twice the number of blacks that were killed in every racist lynching that occurred in the entire history of the USA. 

 "Racist" whites like me have absolutely no need to "oppress" blacks or to "keep them down".  Blacks are doing an awesome job of that all by themselves!  In fact, they are doing a much better job than the Klan ever did.

Fascinating, Captain!   This "Un-Fair Campaign" is highly illogical! 

It sure is "funny" how the most "progressive" libtard cities in the USA, like Portland Oregon, Seattle Washington, and Duluth are also the WHITEST cities in the USA. 

ALL white "progressives" are either totally naive, or they are disingenuous HYPOCRITES.

Since we are on the subject of Seattle, let's do another comparison!  Incidentally, blacks (only 8% of Seattle) commit fully HALF of all annual homicides in Seattle.  If you don't believe me, I can prove it in another post with exhausting detail.

Your naive and moronic "Un-Fair Campaign" encourages violence against whites.------------------"According to charging documents, Baquiring and Mohamed “committed the crimes of robbery, unlawful imprisonment, malicious harassment and assault” on May 25th when they robbed, beat, urinated upon and burned (with cigarettes) the victim over the course of five hours. According to police, during the attack the defendants said, “the white man has kept us down,” and “this is for enslaving our people." ------------------- Shane McClellan's Second Attacker Jailed. Ahmed Mohamed charged with robbery in the first degree and malicious harassment. By Thank you Swenson - 10/12/2010 - West Seattle Herald.

Ahmed Mohamed, 22, was booked into the Seattle Correctional Facility yesterday afternoon, Oct. 11, according to the King County Jail Register. His bail is set at $500,000, according to charging documents.

Mohamed and Jonathan Baquiring, 21, were charged with robbery in the first degree and malicious harassment in the May 25 attack of 16-year-old West Seattle resident Shane McClellan and warrants were issued for their arrest on Sept. 20. “Now I can sleep a lot better,” Tim McClellan, Shane’s father said of the news that Mohamed was in jail. “Now we can finally have closure.”. Baquiring was jailed on Sept. 21 on $500,000 bail, according to the jail register, and police were searching for Mohamed until yesterday. “It was still a little nervous knowing one guy was still out there,” Tim McClellan said.

Police spokesmen did not have further details on how Mohamed was apprehended as of Oct. 12, however in an earlier interview Lt. Norm James, operations lieutenant for the SPD Southwest Precinct said that police believed Mohamed may have left the state. Baquiring has remained in King County Jail since his Sept. 21 arrest and is scheduled to appear in court for a case setting hearing on Oct. 18 at the King County Courthouse, according to Dan Donohoe, press secretary for King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Baquiring plead not guilty in his Oct. 4 arraignment. Court dates for Mohamed have not been released at this time.

According to charging documents, Baquiring and Mohamed “committed the crimes of robbery, unlawful imprisonment, malicious harassment and assault” on May 25th when they robbed, beat, urinated upon and burned (with cigarettes) the victim over the course of five hours. According to police, during the attack the defendants said, “the white man has kept us down,” and “this is for enslaving our people.”. The attack garnered national attention due to its characterization as a hate crime. http://www.westseattleherald*com/2010/10/12/news/shane-mcclellans-second-alleged-attacker-jailedShane McClellan's Second Alleged Attacker Jailed www.westseattleherald*comAhmed Mohamed, 22, was booked into the Seattle Correctional Facility yesterday afternoon, Oct. 11, according to the King County Jail Register.

Neely Fuller, Jr. says that there are two races on this planet, Black and White, of the White race, your a practicing racist or a nonpracticing racist. 

Your right, it is not hard for other White people to see Whites as racist except Blacks. I'm Black, looking at Whites as racist is ALL I WILL EVER SEE. I have 3000 years worth of history that tells me to never keep my eye off of the White race, because that is all that they are is racist whether they are in practice or not in practice, still keep my eye on them.

You make the common mistake of believing that liberals and 'progressives' think in logical terms. They don't. Fact, figures, and statistics don't matter. What matters to liberals and 'progressives' is how they 'feel' about an issue.

Basically, they look for an excuse to fit their paradigm. The most convenient excuse that requires no logic, reason, thought, or proof of any kind is to blame everything on racism.

This is what I haven't been saying for a long time!

White privilege has keep whites up for far too long!

To help cure this wickedness we should have a program where whites ashamed of their privilege (and rightly so--by the ads) should move to some African America area. African Americans gain all material possessions (including property) that was once owned by you (after all it is truly there due to slavery as the nation was built by the slaves). The area that should be moved too is obviously an African American majority neighborhood and city (maybe an African country). It will wake these racist whites once they live in a black majority place.

Amend for your horrible crimes white people! You don't deserve what you have! 

I'm all in favor of starting a foundation called "End your White Privilege." 

Don't be a racist or have white resentment (being a angry resentful white man of change).

You're right alex, I don't really know how blacks feel, but I do know what it feels like to be a minority - even if for just a few hours/days. 

I would guess that blacks are largely inured to the situation, and thus more comfortable than I was. 

I think the cause of black on X violence is the welfare state. I agree with Walter Williams that the welfare states has managed to do what slavery and Jim Crow was never able to do - break up the black family. It's this, more than anything else, that has caused more blacks to remain in poverty & this combined with an entitlement mentality lead to crime. IMO.

I am very thankful that I do not know what victims of blacks feel. I would not be surprised if many of them turned to racism in an attempt to rationalize what happened to them. I disagree, but I understand that anything I were to say would be cold comfort to the victim of a violent crime.

First of all, to imply that this is solely a liberal thing just shows how arrogant you truly are. Second, having lived in Duluth I was blind to the fact that racism is still alive today. It's not implying that Duluth is full of racists, it's just that we don't see it a lot as we aren't as diverse as other cities. Lastly, if you want to hear stuff that is backed by no logic, reason, thought, or proof I would suggest Fox News.

alex

Blacks are so inured to the situation that they have no problems going to majority white areas to kill, rob, assault and rape. There are more poor whites than poor blacks in the USA. Why welfare state hasn't affected white behavior the same way? Trailer parks are much safer than black ghettos.The problem is (some) blacks, not whatever influences them.I don't know what victims of pit bulls feel. Some may think that pit bulls were abused by humans in attempt to rationalize what happened to them. Some of them may realize that  pit bulls are much more dangerous than poodles. It's the way (some) pit bulls are.

I agree Jason which is why whites like you should take the charge and rid yourselves of your racism by moving too South Central and putting someone of color in your home.

Lets face it, you don't deserve it.

The only reason why you do so well is because society has keep you up.
