Duke University sociology professor Eduardo Bonilla-Silva told students during a lecture Thursday that white people are racist pretty much no matter what they do or say.
“We are not post-racial,” he said, according to The Dartmouth. “This ideology is suave but deadly.”
The esteemed professor also explained that white people disguise their racism with “color-blindness” and express their prejudices more covertly.
“We must fight white supremacy,” he said. “The only way to remove racism in America is to remove systemic racism.”
Some whites will say, he continued, “some of my best friends are black,” which “blames discrimination on the victim and the incomprehensible response to the topic of race.”
The lecture, “The Color of Color-Blindness: Whites’ Race Talk in ‘Post-Racial’ America,” was reportedly sponsored by the African and African-American Studies Program.
Of course, if you wanted to hear a guy say funny things about race… this is much cheaper than a few years at Duke:
