Dialogue On Racism: Contrasting The Collaborative Approach Of Anchorage, Alaska With The Bigoted "Hate Whitey" Approach Of Duluth, Minnesota

A couple of efforts to open dialogue about race have made the news this week, offering a contrast between a mature collaborative approach directed towards ALL Alaskans launched in Anchorage, Alaska vs. a hysterical finger-pointing witch-hunt directed AGAINST Whites launched in Duluth, Minnesota.

In Alaska, the First Alaskans Institute has launched Alaska Native Dialogues on Racial Equity, a series of community conversations designed to promote healing and raise awareness. The dialogues also aim to push for public policy solutions and to help create racial equality for all Alaskans. The key word in that last sentence is "all"; it's not intended to be a "blame Whitey" campaign. In one of the two videos released as part of the campaign, the Institute's Andrea Sanders talks about how Alaska Native children in urban areas have difficulty correcting stereotypes. However, she notes that intentional dialogue can go a long way toward healing through a proactive and positive approach, explaining that when people talk openly about how racism has personally impacted them, they begin a process of healing, of overcoming that baggage and continuing on their path.

So although the impetus for this campaign comes from an Alaska Native organization, it is designed to be more collaborative and less judgmental. They resist the temptation to jump on the "Hate Whitey" bandwagon. As a result, initial public reaction mined from the Alaska Dispatch story shows people are more interested in civil communication than in shouting at one another.

However, the city of Duluth, Minnesota took the opposite approach. A loose umbrella coalition called the Twin Ports Coalition, comprised of the City of Duluth, St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services, the Central Labor Body, Lake Superior College, University of Minnesota Duluth, University of Wisconsin-Superior and the YWCA, launched what is called the Un-Fair Campaign. Unlike the Alaska First Institute Campaign, the Un-Fair Campaign is NOT designed to promote healing and raise awareness; instead, their goal is to rant about so-called "white privilege" in their community. Their campaign, which will include seven months of events, billboards, a website, public service announcements, and various media splashes, is directed strictly against the White community; they want White people to become aware of the unfairness of judging people by their race and of their responsibility to help bring racism to an end. If this doesn't meet the criteria of a witch hunt, I don't know what does.

Even though Duluth is 90 percent White, this "hate Whitey" campaign is being led by progressive anti-racist whiggers and the white elite; Mayor Don Ness is personally leading the charge. Also note the prominent involvement of three universities; this is no surprise since colleges are the incubators of anti-racist hatred and apostate doctrines such as "white privilege". The Duluth News-Tribune has editorially abandoned all sense of journalistic impartiality and has been fully co-opted to act as a cheerleader for this campaign, as you can see in their editorial. Here's a YouTube video of a local news report (after the jump):

Proponents of white privilege doctrine maintain that white people receive advantages in life merely because of the color of their skin. They attempt to defend it by saying that most white people are unconscious of this privilege. Since there is no way to objectively or empirically prove otherwise, which would require one to prove a negative, this line or argument -- and indeed, the whole concept of white privilege -- is invalid. It also can promote a distorted sense of entitlement and resentment against the White community by various non-white communities. And it's only a matter of time before gay activists will use this as a pretext to start squawking about "straight privilege".

Don't forget that the campaign against Jews in national socialist Germany started with Adolf Hitler talking about "Jewish privilege". And the much lengthier and more destructive campaign against the bourgeoisie in the Soviet Union started when the Bolsheviks began talking about "bourgeoisie privilege".

Guess which one of these two campaigns attracted attention on Stormfront? Yep, the Duluth campaign, a 15-page thread HERE and a shorter 7-page thread HERE. Neither Minnesota Public Radio nor Fox21 nor the Duluth News-Tribune had the balls to accept public comments on their stories. Although the national media seems to be ignoring this story for the moment, the Council of Conservative Citizens noted that "The website for the [Un-Fair] campaign is viciously anti-white. It shows pictures of fair-skinned white people and then depicts them as the enemies of non-whites. It claims blacks and immigrants are being treated unfairly by whites. It’s absurd claims will only fuel actual racial hatred, the hatred directed at white people". At Occidental Dissent, Hunter Wallace wrote "In 2011, the 12th Annual White Privilege Conference was hosted in Bloomington, Minnesota. The ongoing destruction of the Mall of America by the Black Undertow wasn’t raised as a topic of discussion there". But numerous comments were posted elsewhere, and it didn't take a David Duke to trigger an outbreak of White racial consciousness:

God damn, I've never been racist in my life, but shit like this, open attacks against me, my family and my people, are MAKING me more racist than I have ever been. You ask us to ignore skin colour, then in the same breath tell us we're evil for being white, you tell us race is a social construct, then in the same sentance tell us that our race is evil and needs to be stopped. Make up your mind, if races don't exist, why are we targeted for our race?

You people are the racists, not us.

I'm white and have lived first in an entirely black neighborhood growing up and now live in an entirely hispanic neighborhood. I've experienced nothing but racism and resentment from others for my skin color, but have not returned that hatred. I've never done wrong to these people, yet billboards and media like this justify hatred toward whites every day.

I am offended by this, and I say this in the kindest manner I know how.

fuck yourself and to the "minorities" especially FUCK YOU

This campaign is incredible. Instead of treating everyone equaly and combating all forms of racism, it targets whites specifically, even ridiculing them with markings written across their face branding them evil pale skinned racists. This is true reverse discrimination, funded by the ADL, SPLC and other Jewish run government institutions.

They imply that white communities need to embrace multiculturalism and abandon their "northern european values" Although USA was founded exclusively by Europeans and has been 90% European descent up untl 1965 when the immigration laws changed. Now its forbidden for whties to exist exclusively and show a natural healthy cultural identity and solid cohesion. We are witnessing mass indoctrination and systematic ethnic cleansing in a Cultural Marxist implementation. When will you guilt ridden suicidal "evil" "racist" White Europeans wake up and realize you are being systematically forced into the dustbin of history within your own nations?

Tammy Schmid January 25th 8:16 P.M. (posted on Northlands News Center):
My husband was in the military for 21 years. We served with all nationalities and made friends with them. My children were brought up to recognize racism and fight against it. They were taught to judge a person by that person's actions not looks. I am appalled that because I'm white I'm being labled a racist. I have been discriminated against by other nationalities because I'm white. Those billboards do not fight against racism but are encouraging it. If these groups want to fight racism then fight ALL racism and discrimination.

It seems like the Alaska example is better to follow than the Minnesota example.

    1. Thanks for the input, I forgot to include that in my post.

      People can also e-mail the Duluth City Council. The necessary contact information is available HERE. Suggest people address their e-mails to Dan Hartman, the city council president, and then CC each other council member.

    2. I live in Duluth and have never been as outraged as I am right now. Everyday I have to look at those billboards and it makes me sick that I cant just rip them down. The money used for this campaign comes out of my white tax dollars. When the billboards first came out, someone said to me "I didnt think there was any racism here". The only thing I said was "Well there is now"....


      I live in the area. It's actually working to radicalize Whites quickly.

  2. Mr. Anonymous, why do you say there is racism in Duluth now? Who's being racist all of a sudden because of these billboards.

  3. Wisconsin State Fair Mob Attacks: Witnesses describe mobs, many people claim racially-charged attacks

    By Jay Sorgi and the WTMJ News Team
    CREATED 5:21 AM - UPDATED: 9:32 AM

    WEST ALLIS - Witnesses tell Newsradio 620 WTMJ and TODAY'S TMJ4 of a mob of young people attacking innocent fair-goers at the end of the opening night of State Fair, with some callers claiming a racially-charged scene.

    Milwaukee Police confirmed there were assaults outside the fair.

    Witnesses' accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.
    Authorities have not given official estimates of the number of people involved in the attacks.

    "It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people," said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ. He left the State Fair Entrance near the corner of South 84th Street and West Schlinger Avenue in West Allis.

    "They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever."
    "It was 100% racial," claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran from St. Francis who says young people beat on his car.
    "I had a black couple on my right side, and these black kids were running in between all the cars, and they were pounding on my doors and trying to open up doors on my car, and they didn't do one thing to this black couple that was in this car next to us. They just kept walking right past their car. They were looking in everybody's windshield as they were running by, seeing who was white and who was black. Guarantee it."
    Eric, a war veteran, said that the scene he saw Thursday outside State Fair compares to what he saw in combat.
    "That rated right up there with it. When I saw the amount of kids coming down the road, all I kept thinking was, 'There's not enough cops to handle this.' There's no way. It would have taken the National Guard to control the number of kids that were coming off the road. They were knocking people off their motorcycles."
    Another witness, who asked to remain anonymous, said, "it was like a scene you needed the National Guard to control."

    "To me, it looked like a scene out of a movie," claimed the anonymous witness.
    "I have not seen anything like this in my life. It was a huge mob, and it was a fight that maybe lasted one to two minutes."

    Roffers claimed that as he left the state fair with his wife, crowds near that entrance were large, and someone in that crowd .

    "As we got closer to the street, we looked up the road, and we saw a quite a bit of commotion going on and there was a guy laying in the road, and nobody was even laying there. He wasn't even moving. Finally a car pulled up. They stopped right next to the guy, and it looked like someone was going to help him. We were kind of stuck, because we couldn't cross. Traffic was going through. Young black men running around, beating on people, and we were like 'Let's get the heck out of here.' The light turned, and I got attacked from behind. I just got hit in the back of the head real hard. I'm like, 'What the heck is going on here?' I heard my bell ring."

    Roffers further described what witnesses said happened to the man who was lying in the street.

    "People were saying he was on a bike. They tore him off his bike and beat on him. We were walking to the west on Schlinger. I was watching behind me a lot more diligently, making sure there wasn't anybody coming to get us anymore."

  4. "Beat Whitey Night" At Iowa State Fair

    AUGUST 24, 2010 --Police are investigating whether a series of assaults at the Iowa State Fair were racially motivated since the attackers reportedly announced it was “Beat Whitey Night” during one attack.

    According to a Des Moines Police Department report, a group of young black assailants pummeled a white fairgoer Friday night, an assault that cops believe may have racial overtones due to what was said by the attackers.

    A report by Sgt. David Murillo noted that, “officers at the fairgrounds advise there was a group of 30-40 individuals roaming the fairgrounds openly calling it ‘Beat Whitey Night.’” The victim, 36-year-old Jammie Carroll, suffered “severe injuries to his eyes, cheekbones, and nose,” and was hospitalized at Mercy Medical Center with multiple facial contusions.

    Cops are examining other reported incidents at the fairgrounds since groups of black juveniles appeared to be singling out white victims. During one of these confrontations Sunday evening, two police officers were injured trying to break up a brawl (which resulted in five arrests).

    A second police report notes that the Sunday incident again involved “a large fight with black male and female juveniles assaulting white citizens."

  5. New 911 police tapes from Wisconsin State Fair released

    By Mike Mullen Thu., Aug. 11 2011 at 7:49 AM

    A huge fresh batch of 911 tapes has been released by the West Allis Police Department, shedding new light on the racially-fraught crime wave that gripped the Wisconsin State Fair last Thursday.

    Call after call came in to the 911 dispatcher, each sounding similar but adding a new story:

    "Hi I'm calling because my kids came from the state fair and they were attacked by a group of black people that opened the car door and started punching them," one woman tells the dispatcher.

    Then, another caller:

    "Hi, uhm, there was like 25 black kids that were trying to jump a State Fair park worker," a woman says.

    Meanwhile, West Allis police say race did play a factor in 11 incidents they're investigating from that night, including nine assaults, and that it might still charge some of the incidents from that night as "hate crimes," according to Milwaukee radio station WTMJ.

    Many of the tapes, which were obtained by WTMJ, sound like echoes of each other.

    One caller just after 11:30 said he "just wanted to make sure somebody got to the kid who was getting, just, pummeled on the side of the road."

    "The African Americans that were beating the hell out of him pulled him up off the sidewalk into the bush," he says. And then: "And the security guard, the African American lady that was working that gate, her ass needs to be fired, because she didn't do a damn thing. She just stood there and watched."

    In another tape, a man who sounds drunk or dizzy tells the dispatcher he was jumped and beaten, and eventually turns his rage on her.

    "Yeah, there's a group of African Americans that are walking down 75th Street, going north, that thought it was okay to have a law abiding citizen walking by... and they just jump me, what?"

    "Do you need an ambulance, sir?"

    "No I don't need an ambulance. I'm bleeding but I don't give a shit."

    "Do you want an ambulance?"

    "No I don't want a fucking ambulance. Send some squads, arrest these people."

    "We have squads all over the area you're going to have to walk up to an officer and find one."

    "Walk up to an officer? I don't see an officer anywhere what are you talking about?"

    "We have about 20 squads all around the general area."

    "I mean this is what I gotta go through, I pay taxes and I'm walking down the fucking street -- really? -- and this is what the fuck happens, some stupid fucking black motherfuckers, they think they can just punch people, really?"

    Wisconsin State Fair police arrested 23 people during the violence, all but one of them between the ages of 15 and 20, and West Allis Police arrested another seven. Police reports from the incident are expected to come out later today.

"According to charging documents, Baquiring and Mohamed “committed the crimes of robbery, unlawful imprisonment, malicious harassment and assault” on May 25th when they robbed, beat, urinated upon and burned (with cigarettes) the victim over the course of five hours. According to police, during the attack the defendants said, “the white man has kept us down,” and “this is for enslaving our people."

    Thugs attack cabbie, passenger

    Philadelphia Daily News 215-854-4225

    IN A HORRIFIC assault in Center City on Saturday night, three teenagers who were spouting racial slurs pulled a man out of a cab to beat him. And when the cabdriver intervened to stop the assault, the teens turned their rage on him, police said yesterday.

    About 8:25 p.m., a cab was stopped at a red light at 15th and Chestnut streets when two 17-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy approached and started calling the male passenger in the back seat racially derogatory names, police said.

    The boys then threw an unknown liquid at the cab before they opened the door, pulled the passenger out and started to pummel him, police said.

    When the cabbie got out of the car to see what was going on, the passenger ran away and the teens turned on the cabbie. They punched him in the face, kicked him and threw a liquid on him, police said.

    Despite being outnumbered, the cabbie grabbed a tire iron from his trunk, at which time the teens ran away. The driver flagged down a police officer, and the three boys were arrested. They were charged as juveniles with aggravated assault and related offenses.

    The cabbie suffered an injury to his right eye and had abdominal and side pain, police said. The passenger remains unidentified.

    Police said the three teens were black and the cabbie and passenger were white. Police did not immediately know whether the teens would or could face hate-crime charges.

    According to police records, the cabbie worked for Liberty Taxi Co., but a dispatcher working there yesterday was surprised none of the drivers he'd spoken with were aware of the assault. Police declined to provide the name of the driver, so the dispatcher could not confirm whether he was an employee.

    "This would be something that would be big news," the dispatcher said. "It would have been a highly charged moment that drivers would be talking about."
