How can White interest groups eliminate racism?

The #Blacklivesmatter movement has advanced the elevation of White interest groups which could polarize college campuses resulting in limiting the progress to eliminate racism. The repercussions of such polarization will drastically impact the future viability of the economy and all involved. White interest groups need only to promote positive racial relationships to improve the economy and quality of life for all.

According to the article, White interest group perpetuates racism, social media websites have become inundated with White student unions that have provided a platform for expression. In particular, one such group named UT Autin claims to “welcome all students of European descent and allies to engage in an open dialog about our shared interests.”

Facebook post have resulted in comments that reveal the extremist position that is considered detrimental to ethnic groups. For example, one White interest group at UT Austin laments that after the terror attacks, France will either have to war against Islamic influences or become more accepting of Islamic traditions. In another post, the group supports the deportation of 11.3 million undocumented people. In another post, the group criticized an educator for structuring lesson plans centered on the subject of historical diversity designed to elevate Black students, which the group conclude demoralizes White children. The viewpoints of the White interest group are extreme.

What could be the outcome for White interest groups that operate in an extreme continuum?

One such extremist was Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). He was the Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer (“leader”) of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945 as well as the dictator of Nazi Germany, and was at the center of World War II in Europe and the Holocaust.

His political views are consistent with the White interest groups. Black people in Nazi Germany were never subjected to the same mass extermination as the Poles, Jews, and Romani. However, they were considered by the Nazis to be an inferior race and along with Romani people, were subject to the Nuremberg Laws.

The Nuremberg Laws were designed to control Jews, Romani people and Black people. They were introduced on 15 September 1935 by the Reichstag at a special meeting convened at the annual Nuremberg Rally of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). The two laws were the Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour, which forbade marriages and extramarital intercourse between Jews and Germans and the employment of German females under 45 in Jewish households. The Reich Citizenship Law declared that only those of German or related blood were eligible to be Reich citizens. Instead of following the fate of Adolf Hitler, the White interest groups would have greater success by promoting positive racial relationships.

Positive racial relationships include the absence of negative interactions for which it appears that the White interest group has become proficient. Negative criticism, embarrassment, and humiliation are the most frequent acts that damage any type of relationship.

Since the White interest group and representatives of #Blacklivesmatter have visions at the opposite end of the spectrum, it becomes the best starting point. They would begin by developing a shared vision.

A shared vision is what the White interest group and the #Blacklivesmatter would want to accomplish as an organization. A shared vision is not imposed by one or a few people as an organizational mandate. It is derived from the members of both sides by creating common interests and a sense of shared purpose for all future organizational activities.

The process for developing a shared vision for the two polarized organizations can become complicated. Avoiding this complication will require using several instruments to address the polarized group dynamics. Finally, after developing the shared vision, the White interest groups and the #Blacklivesmatter organization would develop a strategic plan for promoting positive racial relationships.

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L.
