Rules for Whitey: Lehigh Prof Publishes “Ten Cracka Commandments” for White People (VIDEO)
Lehigh University professor Christopher Driscoll published a list of “the 10 Cracka Commandments” for white people.
The list is a guideline for white people to follow in order to understand how they fit in the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
The Black Lives Matter movement was started to recognize that black lives matter – but only when they are killed by white police officers.
Caleb Bonham from Campus Reform went on FOX News to discuss these rules for whitey.
Campus Reform reported:
A hip hop symposium recently inspired a professor at Lehigh University to develop a list of “Cracka Commandments” intended to help white people accommodate the imminent “black spring.”
Christopher Driscoll, a visiting assistant professor of religious studies at the private university in Bethlehem, Penn., posted the list of commandments last Friday following a lecture on the white appropriation of rap.
According to Driscoll, his lecture “led to a discussion about how white people fit into the #BlackLivesMatter movement” and prompted a collaboration between himself, Lehigh Theater Professor Kashi Johnson, and hip hop artist Asheru.
“Together, we came up with these, the ten cracka commandments for 2015,” Driscoll wrote on his personal blog, Shades of White.
Driscoll says the first commandment is that all lives “won’t matter until #BlackLivesMatter” which he describes as both “a litmus test and the greatest commandment.”
The nine other commandments read as follows:
1. “Always remember that white privilege is real, even if you do not understand it. Use it to convince other people that black lives, including black women’s lives, matter.
2. Show up for protests, write letters to representatives, and start discussions with other white people about black lives mattering.
3. “Always remember that ignorance is real, and is a product of privilege. Treat the ignorant with compassion, but hold them accountable.”
4. “Never think that the critique does not apply to you. Just because you were at Barack’s inauguration and your dad was a freedom rider, or because you are the head of your local chapter of GLADD, that does not mean you do not have more work to do on yourself, your family, and your community.”
5. “Always remember that it is never a question of if violence, but whose violence are you going to defend. Unjust state-sanctioned and racist violence, or justified resistance; the choice is yours, the choice is ours.”
