    Exclamation Lancet Medical Journal: The Only Way to Stop Racism Is ‘to Eliminate Whiteness All Together’

    The article is there, but behind a paywall...I might register for free to confirm this article, but it doesn't surprise me.

    In reality, Boyd concludes, the only real solution “is to eliminate whiteness all together.”
    I wonder what that means..."to eliminate whiteness"?

    Does it mean to eliminate "white" political and social culture, which means eliminating things like individual rights and limited government and property rights?

    Does it mean to eliminate white people's voices in the public square and government?

    Does it mean actual genocide of white people?

    Curious minds would like to know.




    Lancet: The Only Way to Stop Racism Is ‘to Eliminate Whiteness All Together’

    https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/...-all-together/

    THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D. 12 Jan 2020

    The once prestigious Lancet medical journal has published a bizarre book review asserting that “white Americans continue to mobilise to maintain or extend the exclusive advantages whiteness offers those who can become white.”

    The Lancet selected Rhea W. Boyd, a Minority Health Policy Fellow at Harvard’s School of Public Health, to review a 2019 book called Dying of Whiteness by Jonathan Metzl, whose thesis is that “right-wing backlash policies have mortal consequences — even for the white voters they promise to help.”

    In his book, Metzl argues that white mortality is up in the United States ever since the 2016 election of Donald Trump, since in order to “maintain an imagined place atop a racial hierarchy,” white Americans who harbor “racial resentment” support policies that seem to limit the freedoms or resources available to non-whites, even though such decisions threaten their own wellbeing as well.

    “From expansive gun legislation to broad divestment in government programmes, Metzl characterises white liberties that endanger white lives or imperil white futures as ‘dying of whiteness,’” Boyd observes.

    While in her review Boyd fundamentally agrees with Metzl’s contentions, she believes that he is too soft on whites by attributing whites’ self-destructive white political actions to “racial resentment,” which “erases white agency through emotional euphemism.”

    “At times, Metzl artfully articulates and historicises the racist origins of white interest in firearm fanaticism and ‘small government’ politics,” Boyd writes. “At others, he turns to ‘racial anxieties,’ racially charged ‘fears,’ or ‘racial resentment’ to describe white people’s political investment in white racial dominance.”

    Boyd decries the “common practice” of mis-attributing “white self-destruction and violence to psychological states” or obscuring “the impacts of defending whiteness through emotional euphemisms.”

    Drivers of white mortality such as suicide, chronic liver disease, and drug and alcohol poisoning have been described as “diseases of despair,” Boyd notes, while they should be classified as “diseases of disproportionate opportunity (to wield firearms) and access (to prescription opiates).”

    The real focus should not be on “mental illness,” “distress,” or “white fragility” underlying increasing white mortality, she contends, but rather on the fundamental “legacy of death in whiteness’s wake.”

    It is a mistake — she asserts — to “assert that resentment, despair, or any emotion that arises from being ‘left behind’ accounts for white Americans’ self-destructive actions, violent politics, or declining population health.”

    The real population that has been left behind are blacks, she argues, but the difference is that blacks have consistently supported policies that benefit everyone while whites only support policies that benefit themselves.

    And so, “despite suffering at every turn of every decade of every century in this nation, generations of Black Americans have sought political reforms that expand electoral participation, increase government protections, and extend public resources beyond their individual or group benefit,” she claims.

    Reading between the lines, it seems clear that Boyd believes that the big government policies adopted by the Democrat party benefit the entire population, whereas policies enacted by the GOP only benefit whites.

    Thus, she asserts that New Deal politics “forged the greatest advances in social benefits the USA has ever known — from social security and home loan assistance to the administrative precursors to welfare.”

    Therefore, “scholars, the media, and the public” have failed to understand “the evolving ways white Americans continue to mobilise to maintain or extend the exclusive advantages whiteness offers those who can become white, even as those advantages place them in increasing proximity to death.”

    The simple fact is that “despair isn’t killing white America, the armed defence of whiteness is,” she writes. Thus, death “is the inevitable consequence of the full realisation of structural racism and the exclusive rights and resources it offers those who can become white,” she continues.

    Boyd goes on to propose a theory would challenge even the most race-obsessed, in part because it lacks any kind of rational intelligibility.

    “For humans to use whiteness to manufacture access and privilege,” Boyd suggests, “they must engineer scarcity and loss. This entanglement between access and scarcity, privilege and loss, means white people’s unearned advantages have always been tethered to a legacy of untold deaths.”

    Despite his noble efforts to understand the evils of structural white racism, Boyd suggests, Metzl fails because he anchors it to an emotional foundation, which leads him to conclude that more healthy and self-reflective frameworks of structural whiteness are needed.

    In reality, Boyd concludes, the only real solution “is to eliminate whiteness all together.”

    The fact that some people think this way is frightening enough. That the Lancet, which once represented serious medical journalism, would decide to publish it points to a devastating deterioration of the institutional academy as reasoned discourse gives way to incoherent ranting.

    According to government's own numbers, over half a MILLION people are dead, just in the US alone, because of a man made virus designed to be even more deadly than what would be found in nature, released, possibly on purpose, from a Chinese lab, a virus that that was created from funding and prior research given to the Chinese scientists by our own government because we, in fit of sanity, pulled the plug on funding here.

    I realize now, perhaps much too late, what a mistake that was, and that for real, mass grave, genocide might very well lie in the future once whites are fully displaced and rendered powerless second class citizens.

    Articles like this and many others have made that overwhelmingly clear.

    White people better remove their heads from their asses, quickly.

    That is exactly what's happening.

    If we do not put our differences aside and stop feeding into this type propaganda they will win. This is a dangerous group think, and it strikes right at the heart of individual freedom and liberty.

    One percent of general population are psychopaths and 3 to 5 percent of the general population are sociopaths, this is where a lot of this disconnect with humanity stems from. It's a small minority when you think about it, and we should stop believing their rhetoric to keep us divided.

    I agree. However, is anyone shinning a light on who lords over those concrete jungles? People have got to get out and say, "I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore!"

    We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
    It's not; We the psychopaths and sociopaths of the United States... We simply cannot stand on the sidelines anymore, our voice needs to be heard.

    Talking won't fix cities or their problems.

    If good people are tired of them, cities and their inhabitants, then stop feeding them.

    It really is that simple.

    No, we can't, nor should we be forced to at the heavy hand of government.

    Numerous studies around the world have shown that people are happiest and most productive when they live in small communities of people that look and act and think like themselves, that share the same values and ambitions for the future.

    Would you be asking if "we could all just get along" if the invaders and displacers were, instead of using pathos and pity and sheer numbers as weapons, instead were using guns and tanks and artillery to run you off and eliminate you and your posterity?

    It's these foolish notions of all peoples singing Kum-Bye-Ya and holding hands that's going to get us all killed.

    One can pretty much outline the divide by mapping cities.

    Even out in the land of fruits-n-nuts good, normal people exist out in the woods far away from the loons....

    Get government and her forced inclusion/diversity and acceptance out of the mix and we the people can sort these issues out in just a few seasons. Of course the cities 'Up Nawth' will be the first to come to heal........Or move to more suitable digs....

    Do you guys notice how all discussions around politics, race, discrimination incite people to hatred? We are all different, and that makes us unique. Everyone has rights and responsibilities. One of these is to respect each other. There is hate, there is discrimination, but there are people in politics who betray you as a citizen. It's about corruption. I don't know which is worse, racism or corruption. Read this article https://calgaryherald.com/news/polit...-back-into-ucp and make your conclusions.

    Quote Originally Posted by Anti Federalist View Post

    I know you're being somewhat rhetorical, but, yes, of course, it means genocide. The other steps you mention are precursors.








    On the morning of Sept 15, 1963, a Sunday, Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, and Carol Denise McNair were killed by whiteness. They were young, 14 and 11 year old Black girls, assembled in the basement of a church in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. It was dynamite that tore through the church stairs, punctured their small bodies, and burst the windows of cars and businesses nearly two blocks away. But it was the armed defence of whiteness that killed them. This was the third bombing in 11 days and one of the 50 bombs that shook the city between 1945 and 1963, each targeting a Black home, business, or church. And the violence was relentless. Within hours of the attack, two other Black children—Johnny Robinson, aged 16 years, and Virgil Ware, aged 13 years—were killed in the armed defence of whiteness.

    Comprehending the deaths of these Black children—killed by white men and boys in the American South in 1963—requires confronting the white racial terror that threatened Black communities and unearthing the legacy of death that courses alongside even the youngest Black lives. Yet, as the present historical moment observes a rise in white deaths, the connections between white racial terror and premature death appear lost in public and academic discourse.
    In Dying of Whiteness, Jonathan Metzl attempts to trace these connections by probing how the armed defence of whiteness harms and sometimes kills white people too. Situating his analysis within the political landscapes of Missouri, Tennessee, and Kansas, Metzl explores how white Americans arm themselves with guns or votes, and attempt to individually secure the benefits of whiteness, shaping in the process the population health outcomes of everyone living in the wake of their political decisions—including other white people. From expansive gun legislation to broad divestment in government programmes, Metzl characterises white liberties that endanger white lives or imperil white futures as “dying of whiteness”.
    And it is a timely analysis. Recent evidence indicates white middle-aged Americans' death rate is increasing. This upward trend has shifted white Americans' mortality in the opposite direction of most adult populations in wealthy countries. Combined with rising mortality rates among younger white Americans, it is clear something is happening to white people in the USA that clinicians and clinical scholars have not adequately anticipated or fully illuminated.
    Framed against the backdrop of the 2016 US election, Metzl tries to fill this void by naming a common aetiology threatening the health of white Americans. Something he calls, “racial resentment”. As he argues, “resentment against changing demographics” and groups like “immigrants or minorities”, “shapes [white] attitudes towards various acts of legislation”, particularly during times of economic insecurity. In other words, to “maintain an imagined place atop a racial hierarchy”, white Americans who harbour “racial resentment” adopt political orientations and voting patterns largely based on if, and how, those choices seem to limit the freedoms or resources available to non-white and/or Black people. Yet they also do so, even when those decisions threaten their own wellbeing or that of other white people. This, in Metzl's estimation, is how whiteness harms population health.
    But foregrounding “resentment” as the source of self-destructive white political behaviours has consequences. First, it erases white agency through emotional euphemism. Second, it minimises how white racism, especially when enacted through political choices, can simultaneously be self-interested and self-destructive. At times, Metzl artfully articulates and historicises the racist origins of white interest in firearm fanaticism and “small government” politics. At others, he turns to “racial anxieties”, racially charged “fears”, or “racial resentment” to describe white people's political investment in white racial dominance. The effect is white choices to advance structural racism, and the violence those choices engender at a population level, get misinterpreted as primarily emotionally driven or disconnected from material reward
    This tendency, to mis-attribute white self-destruction and violence to psychological states or to obscure the impacts of defending whiteness through emotional euphemisms, is a common practice. For example, the disaggregated drivers of all-cause white mortality (conditions such as suicide, chronic liver disease, and drug and alcohol poisoning) have been described as “diseases of despair” rather than diseases of disproportionate opportunity (to wield firearms) and access (to prescription opiates). Media responses to white perpetrators of mass shootings have cited abstract “mental illness”, labelled shooters as “lone wolves”, and treated their violence as idiosyncratic rather than the deadly confluence of white racial terrorism, patriarchy, and liberalised access to guns. Even research examining the relation between whiteness and health suggests psychological “distress” contributes to how whiteness impairs health. And increasingly, intellectuals rapt with the concept of “white fragility” focus on the emotional discomfort white people experience when confronted with their racism, rather than the legacy of death in whiteness's wake. To assert that resentment, despair, or any emotion that arises from being “left behind” accounts for white Americans' self-destructive actions, violent politics, or declining population health misses two counterpoints.
    First, if any population has been left behind in America's colonial-turned-industrial-turned-technocratic political economy, it is Black (and Indigenous) people. Yet despite suffering at every turn of every decade of every century in this nation, generations of Black Americans have sought political reforms that expand electoral participation, increase government protections, and extend public resources beyond their individual or group benefit. And while Black Americans' mortality rate exceeds that of their white peers (similarly driven in part by fatal drug overdoses and suicides), their deaths are a direct result of a political economy predicated on their individual and collective subjugation, not their individual or collective sadness.
    Second, death and despair are not necessarily associated with economic downturns. Some recessions have bolstered investments in government supports that safeguard population health. For example, during the Great Depression mortality rates generally decreased and life expectancy increased, for whites and non-whites across gender. This was partly due to New Deal politics that forged the greatest advances in social benefits the USA has ever known—from social security and home loan assistance to the administrative precursors to welfare.
    In sum, it is clear “conservative backlash governance” has not been the only political reaction to perceived or experienced hardship in America. And despair and resentment are not the major drivers of increased mortality across racial groups in the USA, insufficient access to rights and resources is. Yet scholars, the media, and the public seem intent on viewing white voter patterns post-2016 and rising white deaths post-2010 as born of recessions, resentment, and racial divides. This myopathy overlooks the evolving ways white Americans continue to mobilise to maintain or extend the exclusive advantages whiteness offers those who can become white, even as those advantages place them in increasing proximity to death.
    When confronted with self-inflicted or white on white violence, scholars, the media, and the public are evading the logical conclusion—one Metzl both illuminates and eschews—despair isn't killing white America, the armed defence of whiteness is.
    To be clear, it is not that amid the armed defence of whiteness some people have inadvertently or indirectly died. Rather, death is the inevitable consequence of the full realisation of structural racism and the exclusive rights and resources it offers those who can become white. This type of death is perhaps more easily recognised when it is sudden and violent—like the deaths of Addie Mae, Cynthia, Carole, Carol Denise, Johnny, and Virgil. But it can also be “slow and [nearly] invisible”, as it is among white Americans who will deteriorate from chronic liver disease or substance use.
    Ultimately, white racial terror can strike by blunt force or decaying infrastructure, through frank abuse or frank neglect. It can kill babies or mothers, immigrants or Indigenous peoples. But within a white racial ordering of humans, rights and resources, non-white and/or Black deaths become naturalised and expected. And white deaths appear to be the aberration. But they evidence the rule, not the exception.
    For humans to use whiteness to manufacture access and privilege, they must engineer scarcity and loss. This entanglement between access and scarcity, privilege and loss, means white people's unearned advantages have always been tethered to a legacy of untold deaths. This is not the result of an emotional positioning, but a structural one. In Dying of Whiteness, Metzl intricately outlines this structural framework but too often anchors it to an emotional foundation his analysis both critiques and depends on. This is perhaps why his conclusion is to “Promote more healthy and self-reflective frameworks…of structural whiteness” when the only solution is to eliminate whiteness all together.
    Because the consequences of structural whiteness are fatal and as new populations seek its exclusive advantages, the associated harms continue to unfold. For example, as some Asian American students challenge affirmative action, they not only risk eliminating opportunities for higher education they also risk decreasing life expectancy for affected non-white and/or Black students too. And as Hispanic Americans increasingly select white on the census, it reveals pressures to assimilate that may endanger their population health as well.
    On Sept 18, 1963, just 3 days after the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing killed four Black girls, Dr Martin Luther King Jr took to its pulpit and said: “[These children] say to each of us…we must substitute courage for caution…we must be concerned not merely about who murdered them, but about the system, the way of life, the philosophy which produced the murderers.” The solution to defending whiteness is not self-reflection. It is not a difficult conversation. And it is not centring white emotions, however distressing they may be. The solution is those who can become white must summon the courage to unbecome white and then to eliminate whiteness, “the system, the way of life, the philosophy [producing] murderers”.

    Eliminate whites

    I'm sure y'all remember Orwell's Animal Farm when the pigs eventually became indistinguishable from men. This stuff is always incremental.

    Eliminating "whiteness" doesn't mean getting rid of white people, it just means getting rid of the things that white people do.

    Like

    - having a job
    - having a stock portfolio
    - owning a boat
    - playing chess
    - going to beer festivals
    - generally obeying the law
    - having stupid lawn ornaments

    etc
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Abraham Lincoln removed that as an option, and basically told all of America to "get along, or else".

    There will continue to be strife & hatred, until the right to separate is restored. Only then can we as humans begin to truly respect each other's differences.
