Harvard Hates The White Race?
By Paul Craig Roberts

September 04, 2002

Is the multicultural campaign really about diversity? Or is it about
stamping out Western civilization and the "white race" itself?

College students will tell you that a university education today is a guilt
trip for whites. The purpose is to prevent whites from appreciating and
absorbing their own culture and to make it difficult for whites to resist
the unreasonable demands (quotas, reparations, etc.) from "people of color."

To the questions, "who am I, what am I," the white university graduate
answers: "a racist, sexist, homophobic oppressor."

Neither parents, trustees, alumni, nor the public are aware of the
anti-white propaganda that masquerades as education. When someone who is
aware tells them, they think the person is exaggerating in order to make a

Now comes Harvard educated Noel Ignatiev, an academic at Harvard's W.E.B.
DuBois Institute for African-American Research. Dr. Ignatiev is the founder
of a journal, Race Traitor, which has as its motto, "treason to whiteness is
loyalty to humanity."

The journal's purpose is "to abolish the white race."

At the least, Dr. Ignatiev intends cultural and psychological genocide for
whites. It is unclear whether physical extermination is part of the program.
A statement by the editors on the web site says that the new abolitionists

"do not limit themselves to socially acceptable means of protest, but reject
in advance no means of attaining their goal."

Dr. Ignatiev does not believe his agenda is controversial. He writes:

"The goal of abolishing the white race is on its face so desirable that some
may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than
from committed white supremacists." Thus does he put whites on notice. If
they oppose their abolition, they are "white supremacists."

According to Dr. Ignatiev,

"The key to solving the social problems of our age is to abolish the white

"Make no mistake about it," he says,

"we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the
females too, until the social construct known as 'the white race' is
destroyed--not 'deconstructed' but destroyed."

What "social construct" will be left? A black one? An Hispanic one? Muslim?
Asian? What about Jewish?

The Washington Times reports that Dr. Ignatiev is himself Jewish. If Jewish
intellectuals and Israeli political leaders can be believed, Jews have a
cultural and racial consciousness. Israel is the Jewish homeland, and
Israelis seem determined to keep it that way. Can anyone imagine a gentile
at an Israeli university founding a magazine devoted to abolishing the
Jewish race?

Yet, Dr. Ignatiev believes that it is self-evident that whites in their
homelands should be abolished.

Where did he get this view? His only education was at Harvard where he
received two graduate degrees.

Is Harvard embarrassed? No. Dr. Ignatiev [ignatiev at] is
showcased in the current issue of Harvard Magazine. Getting rid of whiteness
is not controversial at Harvard, because it is the business of American

A white skin, you see, is a mark of privilege. It is not the privilege of
being admitted to Harvard even though you don't meet the entrance
requirements. It is not the privilege of being hired independently of
ability because of government enforced racial quotas. It is not the
privilege of being able to sue whites and "white companies" if blacks are
not proportionately represented in the work force. It is not the privilege
of being able to call whites every name in the book and sue if a white
replies in kind.

The privilege of being white is that whites can secretly believe they are
superior and, as long as they don't mention it, be loyal to the white race.

"The white race is like a private club," says Dr. Ignatiev.

I am sure Dr. Ignatiev is well-informed, but I see no signs of this white
loyalty. Most of the multiculturalists and radical feminists are white.
Whites disadvantaged whites by imposing racial quotas. Despite widespread
opposition to quotas, neither "white" political party will act to stop
unconstitutional quotas, which have made a mockery of equality under law.
Whites are inundated by massive non-white immigration, and neither "white"
political party will act to restrain immigration. To the contrary, both
parties pander to the immigrants.

But Dr. Ignatiev has an idea like Hitler. A race is guilty and must go. The
communists said it was a guilty class that had to go.

If you thought genocide was left behind in the 20th century, be apprised
that today genocide has a home in the educational system.
