Is It Racist to be White? by Stalfos Conner The Anti-Terrorism Coalition (ATC) - News and Commentary: The Home of Freedom Leftists and the modern black civil rights movement (which is also leftist) are waging a major campaign against what they perceive to be "racism" being committed by whites. White leftists constitute a major part of this campaign. In schools, in the USA, as well as, in Western Europe, children are bombarded with stories on slavery and the government and institutional racism that followed, even though racist government and institutional policies were outlawed in the 1960s. Today, in the USA, civil rights activist Martin Luther King's birthday is a national holiday (and rightfully so), there is a black history month in February, among other celebrations and/or remembrances. Strangely, no president's birthday – not even George Washington's, nor even Presidents' Day (which marks the birthdays of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln) – receives as much attention as these holidays. Black people have had equal rights throughout the Western world for at least forty years. The current (and previous) generations of white people have absolutely nothing to do with not only slavery in the Western World (which ended in the 1800s), but also with the oppression of black people in general (with only a few exceptions). Louis Farrakhan and an army of fellow black supremacists (along with even some of the mainstream of the modern black civil rights movement) like to claim that due to the fact that blacks were enslaved until 1865 and did not receive equal rights until the late 1960s, white people are in a "privileged" position today and thus, black people continue to suffer as a result of that. Perhaps Michelle Obama, the wife of USA president Barack Hussein Obama II, echoed this sentiment in a speech she gave to a Milwaukee crowd when her husband was president, stating that "for the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country". Yes, America's First Lady, despite the fact that she grew up in a privileged middle class family; and despite the fact that she became rich, thanks only to the great opportunities that the USA has to offer to its citizens, she was not proud of the USA up until her husband became a presidential candidate with good chances of becoming a president. Needless to say, leftists didn't see any problem with that. However, it does sum up what black supremacists want. Some, like Louis Farrakhan, aren't shy about it. They have repeatedly and clearly voiced – what leftists call, in their case, an "opinion" – that the only way whites can repay blacks is by giving them their entire country. Interestingly, the number of Muslims among black "civil rights" activists is amazingly high. That's quite ironic since Arab Muslims have been practicing slavery since the 7th century – as instructed by Islam (and was instructed by Muhammad). By the 8th century, Islam had spread well into Africa and Muslims began to enslave huge numbers of blacks. In fact, they enslaved so many blacks that "abd", the Arabic word for "slave", also began to be used as a derogatory term for a black person (in other words, the Arabic version of the n-word). Eventually, the Europeans decided to follow the Muslims in using blacks as slaves, often buying blacks directly from Muslims, though for purely for economic reasons. And so began the Atlantic Slave Trade. About 12 million African slaves were shipped to the Americas, of which only 5.4% were shipped to the USA, between the 16th to the 19th centuries. Most of the slaves where shipped to Brazil. Some blacks captured and sold other blacks (in some cases, even from their own tribes) to the Europeans. Speaking of which, some people claim that those blacks did not know that they were selling their people into slavery. Right, they were so dumb that they didn't realize for whole centuries that they were trading their own people out to slavery? Under the Islamic slave trade, on the other hand, blacks were not the only people that were enslaved. Many whites, especially of Slavic origin (from Eastern Europe), as well as those from other Mediterranean countries, along with even Middle Easterners, such as Persians, Turks, Georgians, Armenians, Asians and Berbers, were also enslaved. Needless to say, this is barely (if at all) taught in schools and colleges in the West or anywhere else for that matter. In fact, the English word "slave" originates from the word "Slav", which is, of course, the name for a person of Slavic origin. Slavery, abuse, terrorism and/or racism by Muslims against non-Muslims is deeply rooted in the history of many nations. Serbia, for example, which is the homeland of a Slavic people (they are white), has always had friendly and excellent relationships with African countries. Like black people, Serbs were targeted (and are still targeted) by Islamic terrorists. Although they have always fought back against slavery, they couldn't always defend themselves against Islamic terrorism. Furthermore, Muslims use their women primarily for their own sexual pleasures and for producing and raising children – almost as much as they can. Thus, under Islam, Muslim women are themselves, slaves. The Ottoman Empire, which can be seen as the Turkish and Islamic equivalent of the Nazi regime, terrorized both Serbs and blacks for hundreds of years. In 1809 in Čegar Hill, Serbian insurrectionists suffered their greatest defeat in the First Serbian Uprising against the Ottoman terrorists. The insurrectionists were stopped in Niš when the Ottoman terrorist forces launched a devastating attack against them. After the defeat, Ottoman terrorist commander Hrsid Pasha ordered that the heads of the killed Serbs were to be mounted on a tower to serve as a warning to any other would-be revolutionaries. In total, 952 skills were included. The scalps from the skulls were stuffed with cotton and sent to Constantinople (which had been stolen by the Ottoman terrorists from the Byzantine Empire centuries earlier) as a gift for Sultan Mahmud II. The tower stood in the open air until the liberation of Niš in 1878. By that time, much of the tower had deteriorated from weather conditions or from the removal of skulls for burial by relatives of the killed rebels. In 1892, with donations gathered from all over Serbia, a graceful chapel designed by the Belgrade architect Dimitrije T. Leko was built to enclose what was left of the tower. Today, only 58 skulls remain, including Sinđelić's one. It's called the "Skull Tower" ("Ćele Kula" in Serbian).
