Brittney Cooper a professor of women’s and gender studies and Africana studies, at New Jersey’s Rutgers University, addressed the history of colonialism during a discussion last month about critical race theory with the Root Institute, said “I think that white people are committed to being villains in the aggregate,” Cooper said during the online conference white people don’t trust society to redistribute power to diverse groups of people “because they are so corrupt. “You know, their thinking is so murky and spiritually bankrupt about the power that they fear this really existentially letting go of power because they cannot imagine another way to be, she said.

My thoughts on this are. God made me white at birth. Both of my parents were white. I was raised to believe we are all God’s Children, regardless of our skin color or race. During school, I got along with everyone regardless of their skin color or race. Though I should add, If folks think white people are racist now, they obviously didn’t grow up in the deep south in the 50s. Even the local newspaper used the N-word. Regardless people were respectful to each other. Many old blacks would roll over in their graves if they knew what their race turned into today. Like I said previously, we’re all God’s Children and we all should try to get along! We have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
New York Post reports: Cooper said there’s no “sufficient” solution to addressing white supremacy. “The thing I want to say to you is we got to take this motherf–kers out,” she said, though she quickly added that she “doesn’t believe in a project of violence. I truly don’t because I think in the end that our souls suffer from that and I do think that some of this is a spiritual condition, Cooper said. Speaking about white supremacy, Cooper also added that she “fundamentally believes that things that have a beginning have an ending.
All things that begin in white folks are not infinite and eternal, right? They ain’t gonna go on for infinity and infinity. And that’s super important to remember, she said. Cooper argued that white people are already “losing,” noting the rising cost of living and that demographics are shifting. “White people’s birth rates are going down … because they literally cannot afford to put their children, newer generations, into the middle class, It’s super perverse, and also they kind of deserve it,” she said. She said only future generations may see an end to the so-called culture war. ‘Kids actually can grasp critical race theory because the issue that the right has, is that critical race theory is just the proper teaching of American history, Brittney Cooper said.
