Doug Wilson is Still a Racist?

Doug Wilson is Still a Racist? July 31, 2019

And water is still wet.

For the last few days Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog has been chewing the ecclesiastical scenery. Why? For not being racist enough, oopps, he says ‘White friendly’ He’s highly upset that someone connected with both the Church of England and the Southern Baptists has said we need to repent from white culture. In other words Doug Wilson is still a racist.

Read this statement by the other gentleman Doug is complaining about and tell me it’s somehow anti white people?

“Perhaps the best thing you can do to start is to take a humble posture, recognizing that you have a racialized worldview of which you are likely unaware. Your beliefs, attitudes, and values have been formed in ways deeply informed by whiteness.”

You can read the entire article only at the WayBack Machine because by the time Doug started agitating on how unacceptable it was of Matthew J Hall to say those things about racism and the death of innocent African Americans the cowardly Southern Baptist Convention machine pulled it down. The article is over three years old and was written in the wake of the Philandro Castile. So for three years it was acceptable to say that whites need to look at their own roles in white entitlement and racism, but not it’s not?

It’s actually more important than ever for people of faith to examine their thought life, and possible racism and make sweeping changes.

Doug goes on to rant about how slavery is still a thing in parts of the world, and how it was thing here too. Stopping just sort of calling for it again. He justifies racism and a laundry list of awful things in his piece of word salad. His readers chimed in via email to somehow linked this all to effeminate men and homosexuality in a follow up post.

The last time I saw someone work so hard to claim privileged and denigration of others is in the recent comments of our President Donald Trump in his remarks about our representatives, the people of Puerto Rico, the children and mothers he’s caged, remarks about third world nations, and the Mexican people.

Three years ago no one blinked an eyelash at Hall’s words. Now they’ve been pulled down and openly racist thugs like Doug Wilson are hurt by those worlds right in their snowflake lady parts.

I am reminded of George Wallace and Klansmen.

    > openly racist thugs like Doug Wilson are hurt by those worlds right in their snowflake lady parts.

    I used to have a deadly knee for male parts. One kid took me on and I got him three times!

    Slow learner.

  • persephone

    Lady parts are good things. Please don’t associate them with Doug.

    Chris Stroop has been using #Christianprivilege on twitter, and it’s the same pushback. Dear white Christians, you are at the top of the US pyramid. You are not persecuted. You don’t get to claim persecution, then rant about having to be nice to non-Christians.

  • Friend

    A tiny group of extrem1sts is trying to claim that progressives are secretly taking over the Southern Baptist Convention. Their claims are completely 1ns@ne. They are tr0lling and scre@ming and trying to raise money and publicize their l00ny projects.

    There is no progressive ste@lth takeover of the SBC. Apart from the reference to Philando Castile, the article in question could have been written by countless thousands of Christians in the past six decades. It is tame by normal American standards, but somehow shocking to five or six Southern Baptists.

    What we have here is a case of manufactured outr@ge over a faint, faint echo of the message of MLK.

  • “The article is over three years old and was written in the wake of the Philandro Castile.”

    The Philandro Castile what? Oh, yes – the Philandro Castile shooting. A little proofreading might have prevented that incomplete sentence.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    My left eye is swollen shut from MRSA, I have a fever of 101. You know where you can stick your “proofreading” now that Patheos decided in their wisdom to delete the position of our editor.

  • SAO

    I’m not sure the kind of words like ‘racialized worldview of which you are unaware’ is very helpful. It sounds like an accusation of racism. I wish I had a better suggestion. Maybe the walking a mile in someone else’s moccasins. Or, for the religious, a suggestion of unconditional support to someone who needs it as a way of hoping they end up walking that mile.

    That said, I don’t think people like Wilson are capable of empathy, so they’d walk a mile in someone else’s moccasins and write a screed about how stupid the person was for not having more comfortable moccasins.

    Sorry to hear about the fever and the MRSA. Tell your husband to become a compulsive hand-washer.

  • Friend

    Feel better, Suzanne!

  • Delta

    Is saying “you may be unaware of biases in your worldview” truly an accusation? I don’t see it.

    That said, I’m sure plenty of people who “aren’t racist, BUT…” will think so. I’m not sure how I’d get the message across to such a demographic.

  • persephone

    It’s Philando, not Philandro. You incorrectly used a hyphen as a dash, and it was not appropriate for the sentence anyway.

    Now, stop with the drive-by grammarizing. You can be banned.

  • persephone

    Suzanne, I think you should just ban them. They add nothing to the discussions here or elsewhere.

    And I’m sorry you’re going through that. That’s terrible. I was feeling bad about my left knee, but not now.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    I think I shall start. People that show up, have never posted here, and chose to knitpick have no understanding of how we’re under the gun here at Patheos. I lost my editor this July1st. I hate the changes, but have to deal with them. It’s just a smirking smartasses69 that just show up and snipe with no clue.

  • “White culture” is, well… fungal. And not the fun kind of fungal.

  • Jennifer

    Sorry you’re feeling bad! Prayers for your health.

  • SAO

    But that’s the demographic we need to reach. Otherwise, we’re preaching to the choir.

  • AFo

    Doug doesn’t like to have to confront his white privilege because it means he might actually be wrong about something. It means he might actually have to listen to Jesus and start helping “the least of these,” who he feels don’t deserve any help. It means he might have to begin sharing space (physically or virtually) with non-Christians and scary brown people. And delicate Doug, for all his manly bluster, just can’t have that.

  • HairyEyedWordBombThrower

    Upvote for spirit, downvote to the nasty MRSA…we *hates* it!

  • argyranthemum

    That’s the demographic that will take offense even if it’s not directed at them. When I was recently told by a relative about strangers walking up to her and praising her for having the good taste to reproduce with a fellow wh1te person, I made the comment, “My generation thought when the older people died off that rac1sm would be dead, but now we’re the rac1sts,” another relative not even in on the conversation piped up something about “everyone’s rac1st, blah blah blah,” basically being a denialist. I was surprised that that mild statement that was not an accusation and wasn’t even said to him resulted in such defensiveness.

    There are no words you can use that will make them see it, so just tell the truth.

  • Friend

    Did I read that correctly? White strangers are praising white women for having white babies? This is yet another thing I never heard of.

  • argyranthemum

    Yes, I wouldn’t have believed it either. We live in a majority-minority state so of course there are a lot of non-white children being born, and also I got the impression that they disapprove of white women breeding with non-white men, so they found the sight of all-white children refreshing.

    Sorry, I have to go gag myself now.

  • Friend

    That’s incredibly disturbing.

  • argyranthemum

    One of the current tenets of white supremacy is that we are experiencing a “white genocide” because brown people reproduce. I have no idea if these people have that explicit belief or have just picked it up in watered-down form from conservative media.

  • Friend

    When I deliberately pay attention, I do see that I’m sometimes in a minority in public, as a white person in a super diverse area. But that’s… not… gen0cide.

  • Astreja

    Typical zero-sum mentality. The skin colour of other people does not cause sterility.

  • paganheart

    Many white supremacists also contend that there is an active campaign among people of color to bring about “white genocide” by encouraging non-white men to “breed” with white women. Given the heavy overlap between racism and sexism, a lot of this probably boils down to insecure white boys being upset that white women have more freedom than ever to choose whom they will date, marry and have children with…and yes, many of them choose to be with non-white men.

    I’ve seen the dirty looks that my SIL–very red-headed, very pale–gets occasionally when we’re out in public with her daughter…my dark-haired, dark-eyed, half-Chinese niece. When niece was a baby, I was in line with her and SIL at the grocery store when some old white woman behind us asked “Is her daddy a Mexican? I hope he’s not an illegal!” (We live in Arizona, which has a large Latino population…The woman’s mortified daughter had the decency at least to apologize for her mother’s outburst, claiming she was “not well.”)

    I also have a cousin whose 20-something son is, unfortunately, deeply involved in the “alt-right” movement. He even had plans to attend that awful rally in Charlottesville (until his probation officer reminded him he was forbidden from traveling out of state.) My cousin believes her son’s turn toward white supremacy began in high school, when he became very depressed after his (white) cheerleader girlfriend dumped him to date a star football player, who happened to be black. (I suspect a childhood that was highly unstable, including his mom getting married and divorced four times didn’t help, either.)

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    We had a disturbing experience like that back when my daughter was in high school. She had a class that required her to take a ‘Baby Think It Over’ for a week and care for the doll. She picked the mixed race doll because she said she thought it was cute. She’s a blonde with blue eyes and white skin. We went shopping that first weekend and were treated to some glares and hateful comments, even after I said, “Relax, it’s a doll and a school project!” I was astounded by the hatred

  • Cynthia

    Me too. It’s just “local Costco on Friday afternoon, in a place where people from other countries want to move.”

  • Friend

    A toddler boy in our white family had a large baby doll clearly designed to look like an African American male infant, with a blue outfit, frilled bonnet, and bottle. He was besotted with the doll and took it everywhere.

    The two were an eye-catching sight. Still, nobody ever complained about him having a baby doll, or specifically about a white boy having a black doll. If people said anything, it was how happy he looked with his buddy.

    Fast forward, and that former doll owner is an adult, emotionally secure and quietly confident. So if people are worried about boys with dolls, I don’t think it caused him any harm………

  • Astrin Ymris

    It made him emotionally secure and quietly confident; Christian Nationalists hate that. How are they going to manipulate people like that through fearmongering?

  • Astrin Ymris

    They’re afraid of losing market share as a percentage of the population. That’s one reason they consider “feminism” a dirty word. They don’t want white women to get an education and have a career, because that delays childbearing, and thus lowers the maximum number of children produced of a lifetime. They hate LGBTs, because they’re not producing children at the same rate as cis het people. They want to maintain White Male Privilege, no matter what it costs everyone who isn’t a white man.
