Racist Platform of the Democratic National Committee Negatively References ‘Whites’ 15 Times

image_pdfimage_print
The Democratic National Committee is holding its convention in August and aims to appeal to minorities by featuring support for Black Lives Matter and pledging to fight racism. In doing so, it portrays Whites as having unwarranted privilege and exploiting Blacks. The document doesn’t capitalize the word white as it does Black, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans.

Below are the 15 references to whites:

  1. We will never amplify or legitimize the voices of bigotry, racism, misogyny, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, or white supremacy.
  2. Median incomes are lower and poverty rates are higher for Black Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and some Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, compared to median white households.
  3. And there is a persistent, pernicious racial wealth gap that holds millions of Americans back, with the typical white household holding six times more wealth than the typical Latino family and 10 times more wealth than the typical Black family.
  4. The wage gap between Black workers and white workers is higher today than it was 20 years ago.
  5. It takes a typical Black woman 19 months to earn what a typical white man earns in 12 months — and for typical Latinas and Native American women, it takes almost two years.
  6. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the uninsured rate was nearly three times higher for Latinos and nearly twice as high for Black Americans as it was for whites.
  7. Black children are far more likely than white children to suffer from asthma.
  8. Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and Black Americans are diagnosed with diabetes at higher rates than whites.
  9. Black women are more than three times as likely to die from complications of pregnancy and childbirth compared to white women.
  10. President Trump’s words and actions have given safe harbor and encouragement to bigots, anti-Semites, Islamophobes, and white supremacists.
  11. The extreme gap in household wealth and income between people of color — especially Black Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans — and white families is hurting our working class and holding our country back.
  12. We will confront white nationalist terrorism and combat hate crimes perpetrated against religious minorities.
  13. Each year, the United States spends $23 billion more on schools in predominantly white districts than in non-white districts.
  14. We will root out systemic racism from our military justice system, where black service members are twice as likely as white ones to face court-martial.
  15. Our counterterrorism priorities, footprint, and tools should shift accordingly, including to respond to the growing threat from white supremacist and other right-wing terrorist groups.

November 24, 2020 Off-Guardian 0

The “second wave” of the “pandemic” is the excuse for Draconian lockdown measures, economic destitution, and sweeping police powers. Police turned water cannons as tens of thousands of people protested in Berlin against lockdowns. Meanwhile, the media either demonizes anti-lockdown protesters or ignores them altogether.
