U. Florida Instructor: Patriotism Suggests Black Americans are ‘Uncivilized’

“drenched in whiteness and hegemonic masculinity”

What would this person say to black Americans who love their country? What about those who enlist in our armed forces?

The Daily Caller reports:

College Instructor: Patriotism Suggests Black Americans Are ‘Uncivilized’

A University of Florida instructor claimed that patriotism is “drenched in whiteness” and suggests that black Americans are “uncivilized” and “un-American” in a study discovered Thursday.

The Journal of Ethnic Studies published graduate student instructor Dr. Micah Johnson’s study, entitled “The paradox of black patriotism: double consciousness,” in late May, according to Campus Reform. Johnson discusses interviews he conducted with 22 black Americans, many of whom he says opposed the concept of patriotism.

“The prevailing conception of patriotism, that I call hegemonic patriotism, is drenched in whiteness and hegemonic masculinity,” said the instructor. “It casts whites as exclusively the true Americans, responsible for all of the nation’s greatness and none of its failures. These meanings imply that blacks are abnormal, illegitimate, uncivilized, and un- American.”

Johnson cited studies asserting that Americans who are southern, older and belong to “socially dominant groups” are more likely to feel patriotic and that whites have felt more patriotic than whites for more than 30 years.

And these morons continue to come out with their stupid statements. There are black people that along with white & brown people that are "civilized" and are loyal Americans. Sure, there are some from all races that are not, but to brand all for the status of some is stupid & un-American.

Liberals are anti -patriot and anti-American. They are globalists.

Something is wrong with the last paragraph of this story. Very confusing. In any event, persons of all races are patriotic, including many blacks, who are proud to be Americans, just like the rest of us, except for Kaepernick, who is off the wall.

This is typical of the Left. They can do little but bash traditional values. My black friends cherish these values and are among the most educated, civilized and cultured people I know.

To hell with his racist rant!
