"I have had whites voice this Rice-Powell scenario to me, in an obvious bid for my approval.
I dare not inform them that, at that moment, I am contemplating whether to feel contempt or pity for them. I ponder the distressed white guy who wanders the earth every day worrying about whether someone, somewhere, might not know what a good person he is. I imagine such a man, during initial introductions of himself to strangers, announcing, “Hi, I'm John Smith, and I am NOT a racist!Such people should wear a button or tag on their clothing, or, better yet, wear a sandwich board that declares, on both sides, “I am NOT a racist!
This troubled soul seems to believe that when he proves his love and total acceptance of the coloreds, and pointedly rejects all initiatives pertaining to his own white self-interest, he proves his worth as a human being.
With news of China's current incursions into Tibet, it's not unusual to turn on the TV or radio and encounter pundits and scholarly experts frankly supporting Tibet, whose “unique culture deserves to be protected,” as one academic recently put it.

Europeans and Euro-Americans are granted the right to no such protection, and are looked upon with suspicion for even voicing such heresy.

As Steele has written,“
Mr. Obama's extraordinary dash to the forefront of American politics is less a measure of the man than of the hunger in white America for racial innocence.
For whites, here is the opportunity to document their deliverance from the shames of their forbearers.
Millions of whites seem determined to prove him right. The brainwashing is, indeed, complete.

Elizabeth Wright
Founding editor, in 1985, of the hard copy newsletter, Issues & Views. Its editorials countered notions of victimization and collective entitlement prevalent in the black community.
Although reflecting a conservative and often libertarian perspective, it was never rightwing, and did not affiliate with any political party.
The newsletter's conservatism was derived from the wisdom of earlier generations of American blacks, like Booker T. Washington, who attempted to steer their people towards greater economic self-reliance.
The newsletter also challenged ideologues who misused "civil rights," in order to deny basic rights to others and to impose politically correct mandates.
