Michael Eric Dyson’s White Guilt IRA For “Woke” Progressives

In his upcoming book Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon To White America, Michael Eric Dyson proposes that White progressives start individual reparations accounts to atone for slavery and white privilege. If *woke* progressives are going to virtue signal over racism, Dyson figures blacks ought to be profiting from it:

“NY Times Magazine: Your forthcoming book, “Tears We Cannot Stop,” is subtitled “A Sermon to White America.” Which part of white America do you envision reading it?

Dyson: I envision the audience to be that ocean of white folk I encounter who are deeply empathetic to the struggles of minorities — they are the ones who ask me, “What can I do, as a white person?” This is my attempt to address them in the most useful and, hopefully, edifying manner. …

NY Times Magazine: I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that.

Dyson: That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do.”

That’s actually not a bad idea: if we could only figure out a way to tax virtue-signaling, the Alt-Right might even support the “virtue tax.” We should consider this idea on its merits. As long as it is purely voluntary, the “virtue tax” could be a norm we could rally behind, say, an automatic donation of $20 to the United Negro College Fund whenever an accusation of “racism” is made on Facebook, Reddit or Twitter.

I’m assuming an app could easily be created to accomplish this. You can already link your smartphone to your bank account to make online purchases. It should be fairly simple to link your bank account to keywords you use on Twitter or Facebook. The key to making it work would be using traditional civil rights pressure tactics to force it into the SJW status system. In such a way, a SJW wouldn’t be able to unlock the *woke* status unless they have the app and have been verified as paying into their I.R.A.

Perhaps the *woke* status could be analogous to the blue Twitter checkmark on verified accounts? Of course you would need someone who is black to do the verifying. Conceivably, this could create jobs for black people in Silicon Valley.

  1. Black criminals use violence to shake us down, black intellectuals use guilt. It’s all the same racket and Jews are the middlemen.

  2. I am all for heavily taxing the white progressives/Leftists into poverty. I do mean genuine unadulterated poverty. The poverty of total hopelessness, sheer desperation, complete dehumanization, and insurmountable deprivation. It serves two purposes. It puts those illogical, white morons in their proper place in society (and no longer capable of destructive social influence) while providing absolute proof on the behalf of racially-conscious whites (we told you so) that the negro will keep taking and keep taking and keep taking and keep taking from whitey – and everyone else – until there is absolutely nothing left to give.

    • A tax on general White Virtue Signaling is a good idea actually. Every time these self hating sickos put on a display in public, a financial contribution is deducted from their bank accounts, for the general good of the community. It would have the same effect as a Swear Jar I would think.

      How about we put this idea to President Trump?

  3. Whites Awake? That’s Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn listening to Streep exhibiting disgust on their faces.

  4. W’ll see if the GOP will succumb to ‘white guilt’ or stay strong and support Sessions.

    Washington (CNN)Democratic Sen. Cory Booker is set to testify against Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions Wednesday in an unprecedented move during his attorney general confirmation.

    This would be the first time in Senate history that a sitting senator will testify against another sitting senator for a Cabinet post during a confirmation.
    “I do not take lightly the decision to testify against a Senate colleague,” Booker said. “But the immense powers of the attorney general combined with the deeply troubling views of this nominee is a call to conscience.”
    Sessions’ confirmation hearings, which started Tuesday, are expected to raise additional questions on old allegations of racism from his past. When Sessions was a 39-year-old US attorney in Alabama, he was denied a federal judgeship because the Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony during hearings in March and May 1986 that Sessions had made racist remarks and called the NAACP and ACLU “un-American.”

    • Oh god no, is Sessions going to have to prove he’s not racist?

      David Irving was sunk in the high court suit against Lipstat because he wrote down a racist limerick in his diary and Irving denied he was racist.
      I must admit that charge of heresy on race is a brilliant stratagem by the left.

      • There is coming a tipping point, a point at which a person accused of being a racist, benefits from hating blacks.

  5. Truly laugh out loud!

    Here’s a tip for this movement:

    do what your enemies don’t want you to do – professionalize, solve the money problem, burrow into institutions

    Don’t do what they want you to do: act out with violent, insane, and Nazi rhetoric; purity spiral against Trump and the “alt lite”

    As was discussed recently, what gratifies us today should not be the metric; what saves our children from danger in a generation should.

  6. This is hilarious. Porch monkeys can be so amusing. IS the Left really stupid enough to be snookered?

    • Georgetown University was never a Lefty school. It was traditionally extremely cohenservative.

      The Roman Catholics run it. They want WASP’s dead.

      • All (mental) institutions of higher learning (indoctrination) should be closed, except for their schools of medicine and engineering, which should be open to White students only. If the Chinks and the Dot-heads are so smart they can go to universities in their own countries, they don’t need to travel 10k miles to attend ours.

    • “Dyson: That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account.”

      Make all checks out to the bank account of Michael Eric Dyson.

  7. Gee, being preached to by an anti-White darky. I feel so much shame and guilt that I’m opening my Individual Reparations Account today, LOL. This will never get legs unless those “woke” progs can force us into it. Good, they’ll reap more hate against themselves just for suggesting it.

  8. Everyone one knows Shitlibs only virtue signal with other people’s money. I suspect they are being sneaky here. Get Whitey used to the idea of paying the Black Tax. Then bam! Switcheroo!

    But it occurs to me there is already a Black Tax. I saw something recently by Jared Taylor, where he said Blacks have cost Whites a crazy amount of money since emancipation. Something like a million dollars each, due to welfare programs, the damage they have done to infrastructure and violent crimes against Whites. Did anyone see that?

  9. “NY Times Magazine: I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking….”

    Spoken like a real JEW.

    • But on the other hand, the Jew could insist that he is a racial minority instead of being white. Chameleons come to mind.

  10. Watch out for those light-skinned mulattoes and quadroons, they are extremely uppity and have big chips on their shoulders against Whitey.

    • I think mulattoes are pissed at the White side for rutting with a darky. They should have been White dammit! What to do? Hate all Whites and do everything you can to get even. Mulattoes, quadroons too, are often the “brains” of the operation. The darker ones are often low IQ, semi-savage brutes.

  11. Yeah, put your money where your mouth is. Nobody is going to give a dime to a bunch of worthless blacks who just want to get high at the brothel.

  12. I don’t owe blacks anything. My family wasn’t in the US during slavery, if anything my family were slaves somewhere else because they were poor when they came over. The perks blacks get from the taxes paid by my family is more than they deserve.

    Rather than give them money I’d like the government to give them 40 acres and a mule. Provided they can prove they are the descendant of slaves. Add the provision that they can’t sell the land or mule and let’s see how well they do. It’d be more than my family started with.

  13. In the U.S., high yellows like Tyson put on the most elaborate of anti-white minstrel shows. Of course, if this guy lived somewhere like Haiti, he’d treat full-blacks as if they were walking turds.

  14. Dyson, or whatever your name is, I don’t owe you or any other black, Hispanic, LBGQHXIEMDGEV person the sweat off my balls. (If I had any). Why do blacks, especially think we owe them anything? I don’t care about you, I don’t think about you and nobody owes you a damn thing. You are a racist, that word you love so much. When are you going to quit crying to the white man to make your life better? My guess is never. Apparently, you think your culture couldn’t survive without the white man. That’s very sad that you are so incompetent that you can’t take care of yourself. Quit whining and take care of you own damn self and your disfunctional culture.
