The Passage of Prop. 8 and White Liberal Racism

Much liberal hand-wringing has gone in San Francisco since the passage of Proposition 8 – the law banning gay marriage. The comment boards of the SFGate and other papers are overflowing with gay marriage proponents spouting some of the most racist, hateful invective ever heard in this city of “tolerance.”

Surprising? Hardly.

Steve Sailer, in a VDare article entitled “The Whiteness Studies Status Game,” offers as good an explanation as I have seen, in his review of Noel Ignatiev’s* new book “How the Irish became White...”

“White anti-white racism is a broadly fashionable attitude that extends far beyond loonies like Ignatiev. I don't believe I've ever seen it formally explained, although Tom Wolfe's novels show it in action.

The usual explanations of what drives whites like Ignatiev are "white guilt" or "self-loathing." But does Ignatiev appear as if he personally feels guilt or self-loathing?

No—he sounds like he's having the time of his life arguing that you should feel guilt etc. He comes across as an arrogant, hostile jerk who thinks the world of himself.

He wants to feel that he's better than other whites and to rub their faces in it. The bad guys in his book are Irish Catholics and Anglo-Saxon Protestants. Ignatiev himself is neither.

And this is typical, in my experience: whites who proclaim their anti-white feelings don't really care much about blacks or other minorities, pro or con. What they care about is achieving social superiority over other whites by demonstrating their exquisite racial sensitivity and their aristocratic insouciance about any competitive threats posed by racial preferences.

To these whites, minorities are just useful pawns in the great game of clawing your way to the top of the white status heap. Which, when you come right down to it, is the only game in town.”

Liberals – particularly white liberals – viewed the fight over gay marriage as they view all such fights, as a fight against other white people. (Such sentiments can be clearly seen in even the most cursory readings of the SFGate’s enfants terrible – so-called “sex positive” Violet Blue and the truly despicable Mark Morford – who have both made a trademark of their blatant anti-white racism.)

I sincerely doubt that any of the No on 8 forces considered – even for the slightest moment – that minorities would not follow them. They could not possibly help it of course, for their racist views would not allow them to accept any possibility of it.

To a white liberal, it is unfathomable that their moral superiority cannot fail to be noticed by the oppressed masses – which include everyone except white people that they don’t agree with.

What does this say about how white liberals view minorities in general?

It is this colossal arrogance that led in part to minorities’ voting in such heavy numbers for Prop. 8. Frankly, minorities seem to be getting pretty damn sick and tired of homosexuals claiming equal footing with them in the oppression game. And many are infuriated that their pro-family, pro-work, and pro-religion life is being equated with a lifestyle that most view as unnatural, and many view as just plain sick.

As a White person I read alot of very good articles (such as your's) rationalizing the plight of the White Race.

Whatever is the destiny of the White Race will be only the fault of White complacency.
