25 Myths About Race and "Racism": Myth #3

Myth #3: Whites Have Some Special Kind of "Skin Privilege"

This is another of the rare race myths that can be traced back to its originator. The accusation, that Whites benefit from some form of “skin privilege,” was first made by Noel Ignatiev, a former Harvard University staff member, and has now gained favor, under the rubric of “Whiteness Studies,” on college campuses nationwide. On its face, the idea is preposterous, Whites (particularly White men) are the most discriminated against group in America. Whites are not awarded extra points for their racial identity in college admissions. There are no set-asides for Whites in government hiring and contracting. Whites are disproportionately charged with so-called “hate crimes” (while at the same time being disproportionately victimized by such crimes). Whites are not allowed to advocate on behalf of their group's collective interests, without being labeled “racist” (a word coined by Communist agitator Leon Trotsky), there are no White lobbies in Washington DC looking after the interests of European-Americans, Whites are the only group that it is acceptable to accuse of racism, and they are disproportionately sued - and found at fault - for racial harassment. And this only touches on the most common forms of institutionalized anti-White sentiment. Anti-White racism practiced by non-Whites is even more prevalent. Whites are overwhelmingly the targets and victims of violent inter-racial crime. Whites are an order of magnitude or more, more likely to be beaten, robbed, raped, or killed by a non-White than they are to be the perpetrator of such a crime against a non-White. In addition, White countries, communities, and families are being overrun by non-Whites, which in turn has the genocidal affect of robbing Whites of their traditions, denigrating their heritage, confusing the facts concerning their history, and destroying their culture and way of life.
