Those who seek to express honest views on race are labeled racists if they are white, or Uncle Toms, if they are black. So, Americans today are afraid to discuss the issue of race amidst political correctness and the cancel culture. Most people simply keep quiet. One author who has elected to express honest views is Ed Brodow. His forthcoming book, The War on Whites: How Hating White People Became the New National Sport, aims to set the record straight about hot potato issues such as systemic racism, white supremacy, and diversity.
In The War on Whites Brodow Dunmasks the “anti-white racial inquisition that is poisoning America.” While we’re accustomed to defining racism as discrimination aimed exclusively at black people, Brodow expands the notion to encompass discrimination against whites, which he says is just as onerous as discrimination against blacks or anyone else. What the Left calls “anti-racism” is today’s code language for racism against white people. Trashing whites, he says, has become a too-frequent part of American life.
Demonized at Every Turn
Brodow explains how whites, Christians and Jews foremost among them, are being demonized, marginalized, stereotyped, denigrated, and suppressed at every turn. “We have reached the point where legions of people dislike whites,” he observes. “It’s not only people of color. Even white people dislike white people. It’s open season on whites and, as strange as it might seem, large segments of the white population are all for it.” Too many gullible whites are ashamed to be white and apologize at every turn.
The War on Whites exposes the insidious reality of diversity ‘training.’ This popular type of training is now a multi-billion-dollar industry. It fails, however, to create more diversity, Brodow notes. They are all about racial indoctrination, not racial sensitivity. Their actual purpose is to suppress white people. Training sponsored by the City of Seattle and the Coca-Cola Company are typical of programs that demand white employees “undo their whiteness.”
The media do not report this, yet, if black people were required to “undo their blackness,” he says, riots would ensue.
Citing the opinions of leading black thinkers – Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Bob Woodson, Candace Owens, Larry Elder, and John McWhorter – the author offers a convincing argument that systemic racism and white privilege are myths invented to demonize whites and foment racial division. “Systemic racism no longer exists in the United States,” he says. “Individual instances of racism are occurring and always will occur, against both blacks and whites, but to suggest that racism is institutionalized ignores the progress of the past 60 years.”
Rather than exhibiting systemic racism, white Americans have bent over backwards to make life better for blacks and other minorities. With the civil rights legislation of the 1960s, he says, “whites made it possible for blacks and other minorities to become full partners in the American Dream. White power was unchallenged up to that time. Yet willingly, unilaterally, they relinquished it. No one forced them to do these things. They acted because it was the right thing to do. What are they receiving in return? Contempt, hatred, and intolerance.”
Brodow critiques Joe Biden’s executive order on equity. Biden, he says, is attempting to replace America’s belief in equality with an illegal policy that marginalizes whites. The objective of equity is not equality of opportunity, but rather equality of outcome. Everyone should have the same income, job success, house, neighborhood, etc. Biden’s policy, Brodow says, will ensure that all new federal employees will be selected based upon their skin color so that preference can be given to non-whites.
Anti-racists Are Racists
Brodow analyzes popular racist literature exemplified by Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility and Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist. These anti-white books have been forced upon millions of intimidated white employees and upon vulnerable children. Brodow says that the purpose of White Fragility is make whites feel guilty about being white.
DiAngelo asserts that if you are white and doubt that you are a racist, it is proof you are a racist. Kendi’s book advocates that “the only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination.” DiAngelo and Kendi, both of whom hate white people, demand that all whites should confess their racism. Anyone who is coerced into reading either or both of these books should read The War on Whites.
In conclusion, at a time when national unity, cooperation, and understanding are needed more than ever, vast segments of our population are doing all they can to demonize white people. The War on Whites tells the whole story.
