Eight Things White Parents Should Teach About Black People

faher&son2

Yesterday, I talked about how John Derbyshire’s “advice” to White parents on what to say to their kids about black people was the right idea with the wrong messenger. You can see my column here.

And while Derbyshire’s racist suggestions got him fired from the National Review it doesn’t mean that most White parents out there are doing a particularly good job to talking to thier kids about race.

So, I know you’ve all been waiting patiently to see … drum roll please:

The Talk for White Parents to their White Kids about Black People

In this day and age of Black presidents, a Black First Lady that still makes a White man’s head explode and George Zimmerman killing a defenseless Trayvon Martin in cold blood, you’ll need it.  It will come in handy White people, so read carefully. Don’t just open for emergencies, depending on what’s an emergency to you.  But, this should work for:

1) The first time your kid asks why there’s a Black history month

2) The first time they come to you asking about the word “nigger;” and

3) Just about any other time you’re stumped by a Black/White race issue and don’t know what to say.

 

Dear White son or daughter [INSERT NAME HERE], here’s what you need to know:

1) Black People and White people are different but that doesn’t mean one is better than the other. Black people look different, often eat different foods, communicate and socialize in ways that may seem strange or odd for you. But just because something is different doesn’t mean it’s bad, or that the way you do things is better. Always remember that.

2) If you don’t know something about Black people ask a lot of them. Your Black friends don’t speak for all Black people. It’s perfectly okay to not know something, because honestly unless you ask every Black person in America you really don’t know. Do you?

3) White People as a group have done terrible things to Blacks in this country – and just because they are black (not to mention Asians, Latinos and American Indians). This is a fact. You may not be personally responsible but you benefit from this fact and therefore have some responsibility. No: you never enslaved anybody, neither did your mother or I, but lots of White people did. Once slavery was over, White people spent about 100 years mistreating Blacks because they couldn’t figure out how to send them all home after that whole nation-building thing. This means that Black people used to get killed just for trying to vote, weren’t allowed to live where they wanted to, and even today some White people refuse to hire Blacks just because they are black. And while those types of things are illegal, people still do it. You benefit from this. So before you ever judge a Black person remember that other White people worked for centuries to make sure you’d be okay and Black people would stay poor.

4) Saying “nigger” is the same thing as saying “bitch.” Even though you may hear it in music, or with your friends at school you know perfectly well that you shouldn’t use that word regardless of who is in earshot. And really, why is it so important to use it anyway?

5) Always remember there is a difference between a Black neighborhood, a bad neighborhood and a poor neighborhood. Just because an area has lots of Black people doesn’t mean they’re poor or that there’s lots of crime. There are plenty of places where black people live that are nicer than our neighborhood. You should avoid any group of people that seem dangerous because of their behavior or activities, whether that’s in a trailer park or an inner city ghetto. You can get robbed by anybody.

6) No matter who your sister/brother has dated, or what your friends have told you, or how many episodes of Chappelle Show you’ve watched you do not KNOW Black people. Who or what you listen to, read, or sleep with does not make you Black. Acting like you know everything about Black people because you have some Black friends or enjoy rap music is ignorant.

7) Black people are not pets, so don’t touch them without permission, or change your voice when you’re around them, or worse: automatically try to set them up with any Black person you know. This never works out. If you’re curious about their hair just ask, you’d be amazed at some of the stuff Black folks hear all day.

8) And finally: the best way to get along with Black people is to not be oblivious. Nothing annoys Black people more than White people who pretend racism doesn’t exist and then proclaim ignorance in the face of overwhelming evidence. Just because you don’t see it, or don’t want to see it, doesn’t mean Black people are paranoid or making things up. If you think about lesson 3 you should be good on this.

I know this talk has made you uncomfortable, but your mother/father and I believe that it’s better for you to hear this at home than learning about it on the streets or from your friends. Now go out to the park and make some Black friends! But just promise me you won’t cut through those trailer parks. I heard those people are all single moms and sell crystal meth.

        No,i would not tell my child they bear responsibility .No one is responsible for the sins of their fathers esp. if they were NOT involved as many white offspring are not. However, i would emphasize that during the white and black slavery era ,it was ruling classes ,white and black, that exploited humans for labour. I would not encourage my child to hate the ruling class for their inhuman acts . As for the oppression of blacks after the slave period, i would encourage my child to see the need to never be apathetic about another humans suffering,to speak up and help end injustice. As to understanding racism, i would teach my child it is not about race but hate from our hearts that harms others. Finally, i would encourage my child to promote fair laws for everyone ,equality of education and recognizing that the evils of our society are not race based but hate based. Choosing to follow a God of love or a spirit of evil defines us. This will hopefully help my child not to lash out against those ,he never met, who would like to poke his eyes out and continue the visious cycle of hate


    • I will pray for you. You don’t want to go to prison. May the good Lord bless you

    available for the Christian teen now too. By getting him gardening
    presents and encouraging his healthy hobby you could lengthen his life and improve his health.

    Wow! Uhmmmmmm. I’m not going to claim I know black people nor am I going to claim I understand the whole “Black Cause.” In fact, I’m not even really sure there is a “Black Cause” or black movement within the U.S. I’m not going to claim that I understand what it is like to be black. Yes, I’m white.

    However, I happened to be accepted on a scholarship at Howard University. Howard University is the first Historical Black College and University. So, I took the opportunity and I appreciate the privilege. I have been here at Howard for a little over a year now. In addition, one of the requirements to receive a degree here is to take Introduction to African-American Studies and Pan-Africanism.

    In reference to this article, there is some factual information in this article and then there is quite frankly a lot of bullshit. In my personal opinion, this article is a little off and something doesn’t feel right about it. It comes across as kind of insulting, derogatory and insinuating.

    My advice when it comes to talking about race with your children is to go with what your heart and gut instincts tell you. That is it is ok to acknowledge someone by their skin color, but don’t judge someone by their skin color. Everyone should be treated equally, fair, and just. Do not listen to generalization and stereotypes about people when it comes to race, gender, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, religion etc… Base people on an individual level in terms of if they are a nice person or not. If they are nice, be their friend. If they aren’t nice, stay the hell away from them.


    • BenRobin

      I agree with what you have said, however there are errors with your statements.
      Education is not always the key to people learning to live with one and other without the empty need prove one’s superiority over the other. For that alone is evil. What is needed however is wisdom and that is something that can only be gained via experience.

      This article was correct. What the author did wrong was to show his image i.e. revealing that he is black. Reason, is that a lot of ignorantly stupid white people will view this great article as anti white (which in turn presents white people as racist- since the article was not racist to begin with).

      Anyways: “My advice when it comes to talking about race with your children is to go with what your heart and gut instincts tell you.”

      Not everyone has wisdom nor the correct morals. The context is correct. But in practice it is flawed heavily.
      1. There are many white people/ other ethic groups that [in their hearts] believe than other races are inferior.

      Point is; it does not solve ignorance of the masses. What will is promoting intense punishments for racism. If you are not racist then you have nothing to fear. Only when extreme measures are taken will humans truly evolve beyond childish acts of trying to prove “who is better than who”.


  4. It’s in reality a great and useful piece of info. I am happy that you shared this helpful information with us.

    Please stay us informed like this. Thank you
    for sharing.


  5. No matter if some one searches for his vital thing, therefore he/she desires to be available that in detail,
    thus that thing is maintained over here.

    This really demonstrates that you can still find people who value the things they submit on the internet. I truly loved reading through the comments.

    Niggers are truly the creation of Satan, they are the nephilim, and every mother fucking god damned nigger in this earth should be brutally stabbed, gutted like pigs, have their dicks squeezed and torn off and all babies grinded up in wood chippers.

      Your confused. It is actually the other way around. Fact.

    The people below are beyond disgusting and highly dense.
    The funny thing is; this “message to white people” was not even vile nor degrading but yet the white people below have degraded themselves more than their history already has.

    What you all seem to forget it is black people are human beings- in fact they are probably more human than you are [interpret that how you may]. Point is; if you seriously “hate” black people- odds are a lot of black people hate you too.

    I used to hate white people. When I said hate, I mean I would have been comparable to a anti-white Hitler. I really despised everything about their existence; from their non existent culture to their physically appearance (their skin really creeped me out as much as staring at a swarm of maggots), would not ever degrade myself to dating any of them- anyways I’ll stop there. You get the picture. Point is; you are not the only one that feels the way you do. Other races feel that way about your kind too. If not “more”.

    I stopped being racist when I meet this intelligent German man/woman. And despite knowing of my intense racism toward the “maggoty” race [as I'd called them back then], he/she spoke to me in an understanding, intelligent and none bias way.
    He/she was aware of their vile history and the issues regarding the western society. It was almost as if this person had understood everything this article was about. Anyways long story short; I promised not to be racist toward white people because I had actually met “one” that was worth respecting and talking to. Our conversation was positive and it turns out this person was a major fan of my comments/ any context regarding me.

    Anyways when I read anti black comments like the ones against this article, it really does prove my disgust toward the white race. I gave up on the white race a long time ago for their ignorance knows no bonds. The funny thing is, if you could convert your history into a play, you would find that your race are the greatest villains amongst the other villainous races. Also the genes of white people are recessive. That means you will not exist in the future :)


    • Joey fatonie

      Ben, get out much?
      MOST of the world, not just the U.S. can’t stand black people.
      It’s not your skin color, it’s the general behavior of your average black person.

      I live next to a black woman, who is home all day long, has four kids, and talks on the phone
      From 7am till I go to bed.
      While on the phone, as loud as she can, she talks about how white people are disgusting beasts,
      She hates white people, how Mexicans are fucking filthy creatures etc….

      Every day.
      She is the only black household within at least 6 blocks, and I suppose that’s okay because
      300 years ago some reletive she never met, or heard of was a slave?

      Black people have had 40 years to turn things around, but continue to idolize the lifestyle
      Their favorite rapper lies about.

      So quick to violence, and creating chaos.
      “Ooh! They arrested this black guy for dealing drugs! That’s racist!! Let’s loot cvs!”
      Ps lance, I love you!
      Lmao


    • Person who probably won't be coming back here much

      I understand everything said in this article. I really do. I’m young and very emotionally screwed up, but I understand this. Treatment towards others like this is…unfair. The problems with getting jobs, the forcing into depraved existences, I understand it. It’s horrible. I hate all this crazy stigma around it. And sadly I’ve realized there’s nothing good about the history of white people too…Although I’m not guilty for what my ancestors did.

      There’s just one thing I have…a problem with… am I still extremely guilty…? The fact that I’m white and I don’t feel guilty for coming out of the womb into a more privileged life…I didn’t do that, myself, it wasn’t my choice to make a society where people are treated so unfairly. But should I still feel guilty for being born…? It all looks like I should…would it be better if I just…died…?

    Dear Dr. Johnson,

    I invite you to please try some of your suggestions listEd above.
    From years of personal experience I had to sign for the fact that although low in intelligence ,
    Their self hatred generates even more hatred for all other races around them .

    Basically they are stupid Negroes to have to of themselves to the stereo typical group to which they will never allow themselves to get out .

  11. 95 percent of the African slave trade was owned by Jews . It was so prevalent that they closed down slave sales on Jewish holidays.buthey lets blame everything on the white man!


  12. damion1245

    Excellent material when compared to some of the similar subject material I’ve read. Keep up the good work.


  13. Fairfax357

    I will continure to hate blacks and have not resepct for them as long as they wear their pants below their butts, call each other “nigger” all the time, don’t speak English properly, and behave like criminals. It is pathetic the way so many niggers use Ebonics because they are too stupid or low class to speak English correctly. “I is”, “You is”, “We is” etc. Only a low class idiot talks like that!


    • Kieran

      You’re describing some white people too.


      • Not a Cuckold

        Yeah, a few. Most niggers are black, though.

  14. I know this website offers quality depending content and extra
    material, is there any other website which provides these kinds of information in quality?


  15. If some one needs expert view about blogging and site-building afterward i propose him/her to pay a quick
    visit this webpage, Keep up the nice job.


  16. I enjoy that manufacturing is constant, ever altering, consistently
    difficult and also concrete!


  17. Fabulous, what a blog it is! This web site provides useful
    facts to us, keep it up.


  18. Not a Cuckold

    Yeah, no. I don’t want my child to grow up and get murdered by a bunch of nigger thugs with a combined IQ of 75 because he thinks they aren’t going to devolve into random savagery for no apparent reason.


  19. Person who probably won't be coming back here much

    What gets me concerned for some reason are those on here who have completely lost faith in looking for aid from white people. I understand just about everything in this article, and then I look at the comments and get pissed at all the white supremacist upholders and then, even more sadly, the people of color who have submitted to the idea of whites being demons.
    Yes, white guilt hasn’t done very well for you. It’s…not had a good history of service to you, I know. That’s the issue though: Guilt. Guilt inflicted because of a society that made rules that people like me, who wouldn’t have made it so, are seemingly expected to accept and feel awful about. Truth is people who do see the problems here shouldn’t feel guilty because of the circumstances of their birth. Rather perhaps just attempt to improve on the individual level. Racism won’t go away easily. It’s gonna take a while. Past my lifetime I expect. I’m sorry for that.
    Even though the majority of people don’t see or are having…”power problems” with people of color, I…wouldn’t argue that the white man is Satan. Mainly because I’m white, and I have had opened eyes that have made every day since an uneasy one filled with stress; how does one get these facts out of one’s head? It’s enough to make me break down crying, to know that maybe if I hadn’t been born a colored family could have flourished here. Maybe I am weaker than the experience of most colored people’s teaching. What they have to deal with makes them stronger by default I suppose…
    But I want to say that I am still…human. I still feel things. I feel horrible for this supremacist society. I’m sorry. I wish it wasn’t like this. I’m a horrible person and most often not the best example of a person who can sturdily handle facing these truths; I’m extremely self centered and naive. But that doesn’t mean that out there there aren’t white people who recognize the truths I do that are more sincere and strong about them.
    Please don’t default to these stupid…ignorant people insulting you on this site. Plans to help you in the past haven’t worked out, yes, but that doesn’t mean you have to boot out the help of white people completely and reject them as devils. White people understanding of all this can help. I promise you. Don’t give up, please. It’s a hard world for you, much more than I can possibly understand. But please…it’s not too late. It can improve. My hopes go out to you. I’m so sorry that life is like this for you. Please, try to make it better, and anyone reading this who doesn’t understand the issues that colored people face in society, please, try to understand…try…
    I hope for a better future for all of us, everyone…please, one day, I hope we can all live together without barbaric struggles of power that I believe nature instilled into our minds…I hope one day that society can help overcome all this. If there’s any power above I implore it to help us, somehow.
    –From a troubled 16 year old white girl in the United States.

      Read the Bible. Or buy it on CD. It’s like having someone read it to you. That’s what I did. Years ago. Don’t dwell on stuff you have no control over. Live a good life. Go to school. Do the best you can. And if your granted. The Lord will help you. When all else fails. Faith will save you. You have to believe in yourself and Faith. Don’t have children until you are married and can afford them. Then think twice. You only live on this earth once. Enjoy without hurting to do it. Breath deep. Listen to older people. Don’t smoke. Exercise be well. Don’t spend what you don’t have. Don’t blame others. Never be jealous. If you don’t have it. You did not need it. Be polite. LIVE.

    Go fuck yourself. You’re not special and neither is any other black person. You’re Americans and not a separate people. What you say in your article is pure BS. people are not going to change because your master, the us government and the democrat party, want to control speech to appeal to their biggest benefactor constituents. In fact the more you mention these points, the more people hate you.

    There are plenty of blacks that get along well in this country. There are plenty of blacks that make more money than most on this site. I am one that was born in this country and that makes it my country rather you like it or not. Many on this site keep saying most blacks when in reality they may only know 2or 3. Some whites are angry at that. Some whites and not all of very jealous of successful black people. What do you all on this site thing about all the black between that have fought and died for this country and for your rights and freedom? Just wanted to know. Anyone


  27. Fancy

    Like football players basketball players, baseball players, just some that make more money than most on this site. Your right JC.
    These peckerwoods don’t know the first thing about slavery and how this country was built on the back of slave labor. The whipping to bloody backs,killing ,eating scraps all year, some starved to death or worked to death. they haven’t a clue of why America is what it is today.

    Jealous eh? Of you? Kizzy you coudn’t pay me a billion dollars to be black. But I’ll bet, if you were truly honest, you would pay to be turned white. Michael Jackson had a billion dollars and he still bleached himself. Why is it that as soon as a Shine gets some money, the first thing he wants is a white woman. Look a Tiger Woods. He had 20. I think it’s because you sheboons are fat nasty whores.

    Nigro, only 1.4% of all whites between 1645 and 1863, ever owned slaves. And they have long since perished. There was a time that 28% of free blacks owned slaves. There were almost 4,000 slaves owned by blacks in Louisiana alone. You say, “don’t judge me because a few blacks like to loot, riot and murder each other. I say, stop bashing me for the acts of a few whites in the south. You do that and I will keep paying my taxes so you can keep swiping your EBT card. Deal?
