GUEST: Katherine Kersten, Senior Policy Fellow, Center of the American Experiment
Last week we discussed what is behind the denigration of “whiteness” in the country, examining a section with that title on the website of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, along with a now-removed infographic on “Aspects and Assumptions of Whiteness and White Culture in the United States” (you can view it here).
Values like the nuclear family, objective thinking, hard work, delayed gratification, and Christianity are associated with whiteness and viewed as unremarkable or even contemptible. In short, the vilification of whiteness is a not-too-veiled vilification of mostly Christian values.
This weekend, Katherine Kersten will join us for Part 2 of this topic. Katherine is a senior policy fellow at the Center of the American Experiment, a conservative civic policy organization based in Minnesota. Recently she wrote a column for the Minneapolis Star Tribune titled “Racial Justice: The New Religion?” which highlights much of the “race-ism” worldview of our current times.
We hope you will join us for this important-to-understand discussion.
Short Take: Why are we told that this isn’t the time for statistics when discussing BLM Movement?
Short Take: Explain this new secular religion more and where does it lead?
Short Take: How is the “if you’re white, you’re privileged and racist” accepted in our society?
How should you explain and respond to this new secular sphere of influence?
