Over the past year, there has been a concerted attack on caucasian people. Students are being taught that our founding fathers were racist. Classes are provided to teach students how to deal with “white guilt,” And elderly white men are demonized as “old white supremisists.”
Those are just a few examples.
The people that spread this type of hatred are fascists seeking to harass and intimidate others into silence. Over the years, most people have indeed been beaten into submission.
While this type of behavior and language is disturbing, the First Amendment provides the Right to do so. But those same fascists don’t recognize your right to free speech. This story is a good example. Someone distributed “it’s okay to be white” flyers on the Western Connecticut State University campus (and several others across America).
“On Thursday night there were flyers that said “it’s okay to be white” randomly distributed around Western Connecticut State University. University President John Clark described them as “hate-filled” flyers. He said he is shocked and saddened to find these on campus.
There has been an investigation launched by Danbury police, CT State Police, and the FBI. They are going to review surveillance footage.
Authorities are going to interview anyone who may have witnessed these signs posted.
“Have no doubt that we are treating this as an attack on our university community and making every effort to see that those responsible are caught and properly punished. I am fully committed to the absolutely necessary goal this does not happen again. We must be ever vigilant to protect our university against these hateful attacks,” Clark said in a letter, per the university website.”
With that simple statement (“it’s okay to be white”) on a simple flyer, all hell brook loose. The local police, state police, and even the FBI have launched an investigation.
But what was the crime? Where is the hate?
Many ethnic groups have been formed to celebrate their race and national origins. And that is good. It’s important for all of us to feel proud and comfortable about who we are, and who our ancestors were. This applies to everyone. Regardless of race.
I believe as Dr. Martin Luther King taught all of us, that all men should be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin. All men. Regardless of race.
