Whiteness = "Badness"

Portland Professor Wants a 'World Without Whiteness'

Professor James Harrison works in the history department and teaches a class called “Race and Racism.”

During his lecture, Harrison invoked the late Beatles member John Lennon:
'Imagine all the people living life in peace.’
John Lennon penned these words in 1971, and my interpretation is that he’s talking about imagine everyone living together in peace. That would be, not necessarily a perfect world, but a good world. And how do we get to that good world is the question. A world without conflict, and to me my interpretation of these words, is it would be a world or U.S. without whiteness in terms of the power structure.

“And it [whiteness] is a social category,” said Harrison. “A social category is a group of people who share common characteristics, but they may never interact with each other.”

By that logic, wouldn’t “blackness” be a “social category,” too? Or any other color for that matter?

There is such a place. It's called central Africa. He should take Al Sharpton with him. But he should visit the Detroit, Chicago and Baltimore ghettos first. Those places are the intersection of blackness and Black Leftism.
