Racial "whiteness" is many things, but one of its consistent qualities is power. As people granted unearned privileges by our own whiteness, and as people who have likely harmed non-white people with our own whiteness, it's our moral and ethical duty to find ways to combat racism.
This is what my tax dollar is paying for in Edmonton? Racial "whiteness"??? WTF is that? I am white therefore I am a racist, and I have been "granted unearned privileges"? This is racist and they don't even realize it. Watch this video, that Alberta Ardvark provided, the "white" female reporter is all about victim hood.
I have earned everything I have right now. I started working at 15 to save up for university, I worked two sometimes three jobs in the summer to pay for my next year of university. I only got one loan from the government in my 4th year of university for $2000, I was turned down every other year. I earned my place in the workforce, not because I was "white" or because I was "female", but because I was qualified for the job.
This Halloween my youngest had 5 friends over, 4 of them were "non-white". This "racism free Edmonton" program is telling my two "white" kids that they are second class citizens because they are "white", when they have never seen that their friends are a different colour before now, colour has never mattered to them. "Racism free Edmonton" is promoting "white" reverse racism. They are doing more harm than good with their campaign.
I know Conservatives are not big protesters, we prefer to just mind our own business. I ask all of you who read this, whether you are from Alberta or not, to email the City of Edmonton and tell them your thoughts on their new "racism free Edmonton" campaign. Here is the contact info:
