Well, then again, perhaps they can`t. At a place
rather ironically called
Freedom High School in Contra Costa a 15-year-old
girl wants to start a student group called the Caucasian
Club. That was enough to make national news.
Of course there are all-black clubs,
all-Asian clubs, and
all-everything-else-but-whites clubs, but no one has
ever heard of a club restricted to whites. In fact, Lisa
McLelland, the freshman who wants to start it, says it
won`t be all-white, but that still doesn`t mean it`s OK.
“It`s not racist because we`re not excluding
anyone, and we`re just trying to solve the issues of
racial disparity," Lisa told the Contra Costa
Times. Lisa is young, you see. She thinks
"racism" really means excluding people because of
their race and therefore her Caucasian Club will be OK
(why it should be called the Caucasian Club is a bit of
a mystery, but more of that anon). Fortunately for her,
the NAACP is there to set her straight.
The vice president of the local NAACP chapter,
Darnell Turner, says the Caucasian Club "will not
allow us to heal that divide that we`ve tried to
overcome in the past couple of years," and that if
Lisa`s "motivation is to bring harmony, as she
alleges, this is not the way to go." Mr. Turner has
a point. [Caucasian
Club meets resistance, By Danielle Samaniego,
Contra Costa Times, September 17, 2003]
"Harmony," you must understand (as Lisa
doesn`t) means we do what the NAACP wants, not what Lisa
or white students or white people want. If you don`t do
that or want to, you`re working against harmony.
The same for "healing the divide," which
also means supporting the NAACP`s agenda. If you`re
against that too, there is definitely a problem.
Lisa has circulated a petition to start the club,
which is gaining signatures, including some from other
very young people, some of whom are not white but who
also don`t get what Mr. Turner is so patiently trying to
teach them. "I think it`s fair for white people to
have their own club because every other race has their
own club," one kid, part Hispanic, told the paper.
He has a lot to learn too.
In fact, as the paper rehearses, there have been some
really serious problems of racial intolerance at
Freedom. For instance, "Freedom High teacher Jesse
Gossett, who is African-American, found a noose made out
of a shoelace hanging on the doorknob of his classroom."
That was in 2001—two years ago. Probably the
secret gang of neo-Nazi psychopaths and homicidal
Klansmen lurking in the school were planning to lynch
Mr. Gossett with the shoelaces. And now they want to
start the "Caucasian Club."
Lisa says the club not only won`t exclude anyone but
will "try to solve the issues of racial disparity"
(whatever that means) and sponsor "activities such as
fund-raisers and field trips to places that emphasize
history, such as museums."
Well, of course, it`s field trips and fund-raisers
one day and nooses on door knobs the next. One lesson
Lisa needs to learn is how one thing can lead to another
before you can even tie your shoelaces.
Actually, Lisa`s idea probably is ill-advised. The
Caucasian Club, if the NAACP and the rest of the
ruling class ever allow it to see the light of day,
will almost certainly never help whites do anything they
really need to do—namely, understand how and why they
are in the process of losing their
heritage and their
freedom and how they can and should resist that.
"Solving the issues of racial disparity" and
"emphasizing history" sounds like the club will wind
up regurgitating all the anti-white drivel, guilt, and
lies the NAACP and its allies can invent and stuff down
White students should be learning about their history
schools their parents pay taxes to support, but
learn there today and probably whatever they would
be permitted to learn in Lisa`s club bears even less
resemblance to real history than a shoelace does to a
It ought to tell us all we need to know about the
club that Lisa insists it won`t "exclude anyone"
and will "be open to everyone of all ethnic
What Lisa ought to do instead is try to join the
black student union or the Chicano Student Movement for
or some other anti-white group that the school
authorities and the NAACP have no problem with.
That way she`d find out quick what being white today
really means and what it will mean in the non-white
future in which she will spend her life.
