Default “White Guilt” Politics of Obama Crowd Undermined

Interesting article over on noquarterusa.net:

http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/06...wd-undermined/

"If you believe the rhetoric of the “social justice” crowd influencing the Obama camp’s approach to education policy - the authoritarian leftists Bill Ayers and his sidekick Mike Klonsky as well ed school professors like Linda Darling-Hammond

and Gloria Ladson-Billings - only reparations for 400 years of oppression of non-whites will allow us to close the “achievement gap” between the oppressors, whites, and the oppressed, minority kids.

This crowd supports a new idea - arguing that it is time to replace the attack on the “achievement gap” between minority and white/Asian students with a new concept called “educational debt” that has allegedly piled up over centuries in U.S. history.

Lying behind this argument is a pernicious concept - that white workers benefit at the expense of black workers and that more widely American workers live off the backs of workers in the third world. This is at the heart of the authoritarian and anti-union politics of the Ayers/Klonsky crowd. "

That pernicious concept is known as Maoism.
