Hat tip to @ByronYork on Twitter, who provided this information this morning:
The National Museum of African American History & Culture wants to make you aware of certain signs of whiteness: Individualism, hard work, objectivity, the nuclear family, progress, respect for authority, delayed gratification, more.

You could never make this stuff up. So, here we have a federally-paid-for museum – a part of the Smithsonian museum complex – handing out propaganda that is unambiguously racist by any definition of that word.
And it isn’t just the racism at play here that is so repugnant, it is the effort behind this propaganda to convince Black Americans that they should reject examples of “white culture” like:
– having both a father and a mother at home;
– the value of hard work;
– the value of self-reliance;
– objective and rational thinking;
– children having their own rooms (the horror!);
– cause and effect relationships (huh?);
– independence and autonomy;
– respect for authority;
– planning for the future;
– ownership of private property;
– progress (double huh?)
– time schedules;
– a justice system based on common law.
These aren’t “white” values that are being rejected here: They are basic human values that are essential for the maintenance of a civilized society. They are values that are necessary for the preservation of human freedom and democratic processes.
More to the point, these are values that, if taught and adhered to can improve any person’s lot in life.
Racist filth like this has no place in any museum in this country, much less one paid for by American taxpayers and sponsored by the national government. This isn’t just propaganda, it is outright hate speech and should be condemned by any thinking American.
That is all.
