The interesting things about this portrayal of whiteness is how much of it is simply the virtues necessary for orderly and prosperous existence. The same requirements would apply if you were Chinese, Japanese, or Indonesian.

Whiteness and white racialized identity refer to the way that white people, their customs, culture, and beliefs operate as the standard by which all other groups of are compared. Whiteness is also at the core of understanding race in America. Whiteness and the normalization of white racial identity throughout America’s history have created a culture where nonwhite persons are seen as inferior or abnormal.”

Rather, whiteness was a cultural presumption. If the continent had been settled by Japanese people, japaneseness would have been the baseline assumption. Every culture in the world, including people direct from Africa or the Caribbean, are succeeding in the United States, because they arrive here expecting to work. Not so the American blacks. They seem to expect to be served. Another legacy from slave culture?  Or is it welfarism and toxic ideology?

In any event it is interesting to read how much of what whiteness consists of in this anti white screed is simply virtue.
