College Kids: Learn Your Anti-White History!
Tim Wise gets paid the big bucks to insist that whites are evil (and don't exist).
His delivery, practiced, almost thespian. His uppity, hyperventilating vocal inflections, indicative of too many late nights alone, in his underwear, watching Malcolm X speeches. Who is this man who propounds such virulent Anti-White propaganda from hundreds of university podiums and panels across America?
He begins, rattling off repeated phrases like an auctioneer: "If you know the history of the whole concept of whiteness, if you know the history..." This form of quick-draw refrain fills the air and gives no time for mental rebuttal. "If you know the history" also implies that he, Mr. Wise, DOES know the history of the concept of the white race. From what he says, though, he only seems to know history from an Anti-White perspective.
He seems fixated on the importance of the fact that whites didn't often refer to themselves as such before they came to North America, before they ran into non-whites in large numbers. Yet this seems perfectly understandable and accords with how people come to categorize things, not just races, but anything at all.
You see, if I lived in a world where all dogs were dachshunds, I would call all dachshunds by the name of "dog." Just like if I lived in a Europe of all whites, I wouldn't need to distinguish between whites and the non-existent non-whites. I would just call all white people, "people."
Humans categorize differentially, you see Mr. Wise, so if my dachshund and I then moved to a world where there were dachshunds and dobermans, I would then have to make the distinction between the two. Dachshunds would no longer be just dogs. They would now be dogs and dachshunds. Similarly all white people are both "white" and "people" post-Age of Exploration.
So no, Mr. Wise, it is no "trick" (:12) that has "worked brilliantly" (cue Dr. Evil music).
And no, Mr. Wise, we didn't spend "most of our time killing each other" in the old countries of Europe. If that were so, we wouldn't have had the growing population that needed so desperately to expand. As far as I can tell, my ancestors in Scotland and England and Germany loved each other very much. I think Mr. Wise reads history books about wars and strife and thinks that is all that the human experience consists of. He can't conceive of the fact that a history book might be skewed and biased towards focusing on discord and strife simply because that is what many historians choose to focus on.
Look at the look he gives at :40 when he says "Highlanders and Lowlanders just fought the hell out of each other." Such an actor. Such a sock puppet. Would he sneer so indignantly and complain so scoffingly about the inter-tribal conflicts between the Hutus and Tutsis?
And why doesn't he focus more on his father's side of his family? There's a peace-loving people for ya!
