A black male in Ireland asked, what is the 4th of July to black people whose churches are being burned? This summer’s “fireworks” have been confined to black houses of worship, as more than a half dozen churches have been burned; none have been ruled acts of Racism (hate crimes), but several have been deemed acts of arson. The blazes have generated much less attention than the removal of “Dukes of Hazzard” – a television show canceled 30 years ago – and all things resembling the Confederate flag. Whites have decreed Bree Newsome their official “black friend” of the month. Last week, Newsome and her White ally removed the Confederate flag from the South Carolina state Capitol. She was promptly jailed, the flag was immediately replaced, and Riley Curry was no longer Whites’ favorite black person. Rhodes College professor Zandria Robinson did not receive the same adulation for her critique of Whitefolks. She, like Shannon Gibney and Marylin Zuniga, was reminded that lesson plans are not to include critiques of Racism/Whites.
