    Gosh… every college these days are becoming black supremacist hate filled concentration camps. Who ever runs these colleges needs to be fired.

    I hate this idea that if you're white, you're assumed to have millions in the bank and a direct phone access to all corporate CEO's.. I have an interesting last name, that is mistaken for "a Hispanic" origin, which has lead to many conversations like,,,:

    Job Interviewer: "Oh, I, uh, thought you were Hispanic.."
    Me: "Well, I speak Spanish fluently.."
    Him: "Yeah.. that's good.. but, we need to meet our A.A. numbers, but we'll keep your resume on file for later"
    Me: *Internalized* "FFFUUUUCCCKKK!!!!"

    Or, my favorite one..

    Judge: "I know the expert testimony corroborates what you've said… But, your kind isn't known for it's honesty, Miss *Insert Spanish Sounding Last Name, as he says it exaggeratedly*.."
    Me: I'm not Hispanic, I'm Sicilian.. different continent. But even if I was Hispanic, what difference would that make? The evidence is the evidince.."
    Judge: "… I'm dismissing your case, refile through the civil courts if you can afford it"
    Me: "FFFFUUUUCCCKKKK, AGAIN!"

    I'm punished when people think I'm from a different race, and punished when people think I'm white, and it's fucking irritating to be told "Oh, you're white, you have privilege.." WHAT PRIVILEGE?! I'm pulled over all the freaking time, I get tickets for the stupidest things, I'm not rich, I had a great GPA, but wasn't eligible for a single damn scholarship, my family wasn't even on this continent when slavery occurred, yet I'm told I still have to feel guilty for it and should "atone".. IN FACT, the island my family came from was enslaved by northern Africans for a time, but "that's not the point", because…. I'm.. so… privileged….

    Fuck me… *inhale* sorry… needed to get that off my chest…ahem.. Continue, Matt..

    It has gotten to the point where white, Christian, heterosexual, cisgender males are the only true "oppressed minority". Every other demographic has legal/liberal privileges.

    "Minority" history is taught in its full scope in nations where the "minorities" are the majority. American history, as taught in American, is Euro-centric for a reason, just as Chinese national history is Chino-centric as taught in China. Courses in specific aspects of European history (12th century Occitania, Thirty Years War, etc.) are available, just as other areas and timeframes are also available. These SJWs are just… ridiculous.

    Sounds like a bunch of kids with first world problems. Solution send these kids to a third world country not as like a field trip but as like an every day citizen of that country I think it would be the best life experience for these students.

    I really wish you would get angry over this bullshit.

    This is the most racist stuff ever.

    Is this Portland Community College publicly funded?

    Also, I agree. We're All Americans.

    As long as they focus on the bad parts of every race…. I wouldn't have a problem.

    But no, colleges teach feminism and Marxism, and that white people are evil.

    They won't talk about 15% of the population committing 50% of the violent crime.

    Big Problem here.
    Whiteness =/= white skintone.
    While Blackness is basically African-American …stuff, Whiteness is not.
    People in Europe lived among people who only gradually become darker.
    North of the Sahara there are NO NON-WHITE PEOPLE.
    Why would anybody feel the necessity to define 'whiteness'?
    That is like defining season when its is always sunny and 25°C outside.
    There is no need, so you do not do it.
    Whiteness indeed only becomes interesting with colonialism, that is from circa mid-15th century and at first it is simply 'Christendom' or more specific 'Catholicism'.
    The Spaniards in the New World position themselves against the natives as christians against heathens. Their superiority does not stem from race, it stems from grace.
    Same goes for the Portuguese in the Africans and in the Pacific.
    Then Catholicism itself shatters. 1517 Protestantism rises. Faith can no longer provide the unifying feature. And there begins the long of journey to scientific racism, e.g. one 'race' is better than the other (even within the 'whiteness sphere') for scientific-sounding reasons.
    And 'whiteness' is a much bigger deal in America, precisely because America for a long time defined itself by and through its struggles (it also leads to interesting times where Mexicans are white but South Europeans are not) while Europe experiences whiteness mostly in its colonies and among its colonising elites but rarely among their whole cultures because very little of this culture ever comes into contact with large groups of strangers that can be defined by skin tone.

    Without white people (which I am narrowly defining as Europeans and their descendants, even if Middle Easterners – including ancient and modern Egyptians – are white by their phenotype), we'd lack the following, which includes but by no means limited to:

    – The Internet and the world wide web. Thank Vint Cerf and Tim-Burners-Lee, among others.
    – The Airplane: Thank you white -er, Wright Brothers.
    – Newtonian Physics and Calculus: Newton was British, but even if you ascribe Calculus to Leibniz, both are still white.
    – The Printing Press: Gutenberg, who was from Germany.
    – The Scientific Method: Francis Bacon and to a lesser extent, Rene Descartes.
    – The Socratic Method: One guess who.
    – The University System: Started by the Catholic church in Bologna, Italy in 1088 AD. The Muslims had nothing to do with it.
    – Algebra: Invented by a Greek in Alexandria named Diophantus. Al-Khwarizmi refined it more later.
    – Heliocentrism: Aristarchus of Samos, Copernicus, Galileo, and finally Kepler got it right.
    – The theories of relativity: Albert Einstein
    – Democracy: The Greek city-state of Athens. No real evidence of any democracy anywhere else predates it.
    – The Republic: Both the government (ancient Rome) and the book (Plato)
    – Gothic Architecture: Despite the name, had everything to do with France, nothing to do with the extinct-by-then Goths.
    – Controlled Electricity: Benjamin Franklin, Michael Faraday, Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, and Nicola Tesla.
    – The Railroad: Invented in England
    – Theory of Evolution: Charles Darwin
    – Personal Computer: Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs.
    – The Car: Benz and Daimler.
    – Interchangeable Parts: The Venetian arsenal (yes, it's an Arabic word, but a European invention) and Eli Whitney.
    – Mass Production: Elisha Otis (spelling?) and Henry Ford.
    – The Video Game: Invented in the US. Same thing with the first consoles.
    – Google: Launched in the US too.
    – Modern Rocketry: Goddard and Von Braun, plus Korolev (spelling?)
    – Ancient Rocketry: Archytas, a Greek with a steam-powered rocket which predates Chinese fireworks.
    – The Codex: Biggest advance in book-making until the press, came from ancient Rome. It's a book bound at the spine.
    – Human Rights: Mostly from conventions held by and in European and American places, such as Geneva or The Hague.
    – The Electric Battery: Alessandro Volta. The Zamboni pile is European too.
    – Artistic Perspective: From Italy in the late 1300s.
    – The Telephone: Alexander Graham Bell. Some say another white guy, Elisha Gray.
    – The Diesel Engine: Rudolph Diesel, a German.
    – Opera: From Italy.
    – The Piano: From Italy.
    – Comic Books: From the US, started by several white men, mostly Jewish.
    – The Arch and the Dome: From Greece, refined further in Rome.
    – The Semiconductor: Noyce and Kilby.

    And before you "credit" white people with inventing racism and slavery, note that those existed in Africa long before there were any white countries at all.

    This whole thing sounds unreal to me. (I'm just catching up with this info since I live under a rock and am going through Matt's channel.) It sounds like a big joke. And if this is actually true, then I am sick and tired of the whole "white shaming" bullshit. Because you know what that is? Racism. GASP! Don't believe me? Don't believe that whites can experience racism? Look up the fucking definition of racism.

    How backwards the current racist mindset of the people "fighting racism" :
    All white people are evil racists who deserve worse then death.

    Everyone else is a Person of Colour, is considered a minority and needs to be protected by white people from white people.

    When it is the entire world vs 1 "race" who is really the minority? :P

    I am such a fool for thinking that German, English, French, American, Canadian, Australian, etc were different countries and had different agendas, they aren't unique people they are all just white, so why not just lump them all together and hate them for their skin colour. That'll stop racism.

    slaves where bought already in chains from black slave owners. There where also very many white slaves. It is said that the whites slaves where treated much worse because they where not considered as valuable. They where often just worked to death.

    We focus on White history because white males are responsible for 99.9% of everything. If you have not figured this out yet, try reading. It's not the school systems fault Professional victims can't handle historical fact.

    It's so bad that now, kids are taught lies and exaggerations, to pad the achievements of other groups. Such as Marie Curie discovering radium (it was actually her husband, she just assisted in the lab), and George Washington Carver inventing peanut butter (he actually just made a recipe for it). This is also pointed out in American History X, when Daniel's dad mentions that great books are thrown out and crappy books shoe horned in solely because they were written by non white males. I experienced this first hand. In my English class we were going to read 1984, but some SJW's complained and we were forced to read Slurp Soup (it's just Asian people eating soup, that's literally it)

    The truth is the most despised thing on Earth. I already know I will get tons of hate simply for stating facts, and some idiot will list a few things other groups have done and pretend that their accomplishments are equal to that of white males. Even though for every 1 thing accomplished by another group their are 50,000 accomplishments by white males.

    As a TRUE liberal who lives in Portland and who went to PCC, I left after two terms because I couldn't stand the SJW environment. That was over two years ago (I'm 20 now) and after hearing about this, I can safely say I will NEVER be going back.

    I think its a good idea to have whiteness month at PCC because its talking about how white people are privileged more than other races. AND ITS NOT TO SHAME WHITE PEOPLE. IF YOU FEEL SHAME YOURE PATHETIC THIS IS AN EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE.

    (sigh) And here I thought someone was finally going to have the brains and the stones to teach students about the Viking Age and how not all Vikings were blood thirsty murderers, being a Viking was basically a job and that Berzerkers were more or less just Champions who fought on the behalf of a noble. But no, of course not. I should've known it was some illogical SJW bullshit. Do you want to end racism? STOP SEEING EVERYTHING THROUGH THE CONTEXT OF SOMEONES RACE! Honestly, don't bother showing up to this so called "class" and instead go down to the library for self study or go volunteer time at a non-profit.

    I have honestly always hated the term "White" – seriously, it makes no sense and is pretty damn racist in itself. The US Census says that "White" aka "Caucasian" defines any/all people with ethnic/racial roots in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East… I'm sorry but, WTF are they smoking?! They just generalized loads of various and distinct ethnic groups. Slavs are not Scandnavian, nor are Greeks the exact same as French, Italian or German people. I can only imagine how people like Egyptians and Turks feel about this… for real, the US Gov has been cracked out for the longest. :/

    This video raises a lot of interesting questions. Regardless of how you feel towards this issue, I think it is important as a white Americans that we at least acknowledge the social frameworks that racism has created. Although I myself am not racists, I can acknowledge that racism has created a stigma against African Americans and minorities within American culture. White-Shaming is not productive, placing blame is not productive. But as white Americans we must realize that it is our job to break these frame works, or they will continue to separate us as humans. Whiteness is no longer just a skin color, its an entire culture. This is the point of this project I believe. To recognize that we have taken a skin culture and made an entire culture from this alleged privilege. When we see people crossing those lines of race and ethnicity, society tends to lash back with labels such as "white trash" or "prissy-black". Racism has moved from active discrimination to social limitation, and it's important to recognize this idea.

    White isn't a social construct, it means you're genetically from Europe, or of that same stock and therefore look it.

    And it doesn't mean Anglo-Saxon. Our history has a bias for England because of it's protestant ties to England, so in that I agree.. But most Whites here aren't English. And according to studies even the English aren't really Angles or Saxons, a people from Germany. They're actually mostly native Iberians.

    totally bash whites month, good night white pride. this is basically every day of the year anyway. whites are not allowed any positive association with their history. Even though what happened in the last 500 years of western civilization has advanced the human species. bad stuff has happened aswell, but there is only a hermeneutic line of reasoning concentrating on the negative.

    i didnt know you from portland as well, i should have sub'd earlier.

    what angers me the most about this is that PDX is by FAR the most inclusive area in the country, we are as accommodating as possible to every color, sex, gender, life practice. we were rated the friendliest city for LBGT in the country passing san fransisco by quite a bit. we live surrounded by people with blue hair, 37 piercings, tattoos and no one gives a fuck, this is the core of keep portland weird, we just dont care what you do. —yet, because im white, im STILL racist, im STILL bigoted against gays, i STILL hate women, despite buying in to all these inclusive values.

    the real backlash against the SJW's is from the left, the people who (like me) bought in to political correctness the first time around and opened up to everyone and their life and its not enough JUST because im white. the right wing will shrug and say "of course i'll get called racist" ….but the left, we gave everything, we bent over backwards on demand, we opened up everything for them and we're getting nothing but shit on. thats why revots against the SJW's like gamergate came largely from the inclusive left and moderate right, the people who thought they had already done everything right
