A Moment Of White Egress
or a moment of racial egress even, can be profoundly human
When a self described white but rational person can fully embrace humanity and its truth this way it becomes more and more inappropriate and inaccurate to then simply reduce that person to a mere lazy adjective of being white. The same can be said of all the other fallacious racial adjectives.
Racial discords are essentially racist, groupthink, zero sum fallacies. When you consider the consequences of such irrational logic such as poverty, violence, discrimination and inequality dug up and conspicuously unearthed, you look closely enough you will find its root cause.
It is unfortunate that so many are convinced that race is an actual thing. It has this real perceived value much in the way that the metals: gold, silver, and bronze has and was perceived, such that it became a standard, albeit exclusive, nonsensical, impractical and wholly illogical in practice and usage. The departure from this actually made life a little better in the way we barter and exchange. How long will it take for that sort of evolution to take place on the matter of race?
It may never occur at this rate
When our President made this statement at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outside of Washington D.C. on February 24, 2017, it was insidiously telling in so many ways.
Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good, it’s very important. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I’m representing.
I’m not representing the globe, I’m representing your country.
AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!
By the way these statements are terribly contradicting, and he is not speaking to all of the citizens of the U. S., only a privileged few and its uninformed.
In essence Trump is proclaiming that there is no such thing as unity or one human race for that matter. This is an absurdity. Let me point out how uninformed and devoid of reality this statement is. There is a global currency. The world has already decided what that currency is. It is known as the world’s reserve currency. It is undisputed.
There is incredible privilege with this as a country, yet there is liability that comes along with it too — technically, but the overriding factors of discriminating, selfish and motivating-ly ignorant notions of winning and fear of losing supplant them. Factors that make you appear less human. This imagined differentiation and its grossly competitive narrative is costly.
We can still have a United States, just like we can still have a European Union, and an African Union and so on and so on. We will still have a motley of countries and their inherent cultures, and within them subcultures and so forth, but do keep in mind that the United States, multiculturally, is but a close enough reflection of the world’s population under its own flag. That diversity contributes to its value and thus its status. While Trump himself is no plausible representation of the globe, — the only sensible statement that I can agree with him on — by insinuating that too much “global cooperation” and “getting along with other countries” is something that is seemingly nefarious and bad for the U.S. would in fact be counterintuitive and really stupid. This is essentially how this country sustains its influence and wealth.
Oftentimes it is no wonder that it looks back at its own reflection and decides that it wants to spite itself by espousing racial discord through racial zero sum fallacies. Self-destructive actions to remove what was well stated and listed by H. Nemesis Nyx in programs that encourage unity, concede to empathy, and invoke equality within, will no doubt be expressed outwardly towards the world. It is almost as if this administration and all its supporters believe that they are a majority that really matter and therefore would like to treat the rest of the world as a minority.
