All the Politically Correct sources say that American history is racist.

But nobody dares to go into how this attitude shows itself.

New York State recently approved a textbook for general use, which declared simply that, "All whites are racist." It was pulled at the last minute. New York authorities suddenly realized how fatal it would be to their holier-than-thou attitudes if people really started looking closely at the attitudes of whites who call themselves "antiracist."

This is because Whites who are "antiracist" have thoroughly white supremacist attitudes. But their racism is so deeply ingrained that they don't even know it's there.

There is nothing like total self-righteousness to keep you from realizing your own shortcomings.

For example, everybody always tells me over and over and over again that the Chinese invented paper and gunpowder before it was in the West. I cannot have heard that less than fifty or sixty times in the last decade. Every literate person has.

Why do we keep hearing about Chinese gunpowder and Chinese paper? The population of China has consistently been equal to or bigger than the entire population of the West. Yet everybody has to repeat to everybody at least once a month that they had paper and gunpowder before Europe did.

Why is it such a major news item that the Chinese, a consistent one in five of the whole world population, invented some things before we did?

The reason for this is that, to self-styled antiracist whites, the idea that nonwhites invented anything is something we just assume to be front-page news. This endless repetition, which is supposed to be the very epitome of antiracism, is one of the best illustrations of how our view of the world is so deeply racist we don't even notice it when it is shouted in our faces as antiracism.



Another example of our totally racist outlook being presented as antiracism is the Politically Correct attitude toward animals and indigenous peoples.

For example, let us say you walk right into the middle of a television commentary and hear the following words,

"This may seem cruel and savage to us. But for them it is part of the natural scheme of things."

Let me ask you a question. Who is the "them" being referred to? Is the "them" the commentator is talking about native Americans, aborigines, or animals?

There is no way for you to know, because these same words are invariably applied to nonwhites and to animals. Unlike white people, they are an innocent part of nature, incapable of the sinfulness that comes with an enlarged brain.

The reason it is so easy to sell White Guilt is because, to our mind, animals and nonwhites are incapable of sinning. We find it easy to think that nonwhites and animals are always sinned against.

In other words, "antiracists" insist that to say that a nonwhite is guilty of sins against whites is as absurd as the idea that a squirrel could be guilty of a crime.

It is hard to imagine a more racist attitude than the one behind White Guilt.
