Suffer No Fools

I have heard that:

He cited this article:

The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC received a wave of backlash from some quarters on Twitter Wednesday after publishing a graphic linking things like the nuclear family and self-reliance to whiteness.

The graphic, which is part of a “talking about race” article on the taxpayer-funded museum’s website, discusses how white dominant culture, or whiteness, have instilled a long list of values in the U.S. “Since white people still hold most of the institutional power in America, we have all internalized some aspects of white culture — including people of color,” it reads.

The museum’s graphic breaks the “aspects and assumptions of whiteness” into categories such as “rugged individualism” and “history.”

For example, under “future orientation,” the graphic lists “delayed gratification” and planning for the future as ideas spread by white culture. Others aspects of whiteness include: “Objective, rational linear thinking”; “cause and effect relationships”; hard work being the key to “success”; respect for authority; “decision-making”; a “steak and potatoes” aesthetic; children having their own rooms in a household; and the idea that “intent counts” in justice.

It’s a bad day, when

  • “objective, rational linear thinking”
  • “cause and effective relationships”
  • “respect for authority”
  • “decision making”


  • “intent” tied to guilt

Are all seen as “white thinking”.

“It’s not just crazy, it’s evil and counterproductive,” conservative author Ben Shapiro tweeted. “It suggests that all pathways to success — hard work, stable family structure, individual decisionmaking — represent complicity in white supremacy. Which incentivizes all the paths to failure, of course.”

My response?

People really do dig their own graves.

They really, really do.

There is an useful video that goes against this self-defeating narrative, angled for the consumption of Black Americans:
