Northwestern University Journalist Says The Way White People Walk is Racist

Headlines that originate from major college universities are PSAs for trade schools.

Recently, the student newspaper at the prestigious Northwestern University published an article asserting that “white people walk awkwardly on sidewalks” because of “internalized racism.”

Uh, what?

The opinion editor for the Daily Northwestern headlined the column with a question: “Are the sidewalks at Northwestern too white, too?”

Too white.

The article, that the college is rather proud of, is simply curious whether racism is to blame for the way white people walk on sidewalks.

“When I first got to Northwestern, I wondered why walking around on campus could be so frustrating,” the column begins. “Even when sidewalks were relatively empty, I would often have to walk way around people to pass without bumping into them. At first, I chalked it up to the geographic diversity of the school; maybe the people that came to this school were used to different ways of moving through a public place. But after talking to my black friends about my experience, they echoed it: people at this predominantly white school would not move out of our way on the sidewalk.”

How is deciding whether to move out of the way on a sidewalk racist? Asking that question is racist. Don’t ever do it again.

After quoting a quiz to see just how racist a college is, the paper went on to detail the racist ways white people walk on sidewalks:

“Almost everybody in the United States gets some sort of education about Jim Crow segregation. Black people had to attend different schools, weren’t allowed to vote and didn’t have any legal protection from discrimination. These laws helped to create an image of Black inferiority after the abolition of slavery. And that sentiment trickled down to the way people interact on an interpersonal level.”

Nope, didn’t explain it there either.

It goes on:

“The formal rules of Jim Crow were accompanied by a set of informal ones that governed the way black people approached white people in public space and vice versa. That social order required black people to yield to white people whenever possible. Both sets of rules told white people that they were superior and black people that they were inferior — and that this pattern of subjugation was the natural way for things to be. Black people were made to show deference to white people any time they interacted. One of the ways they were made to do so was by stepping off the sidewalk when a white person was walking past.”

Got that? White people walk on sidewalks in 2021 to honor Jim Crow.

Here’s the final paragraph, summing up how racist white people are when they walk:

“Many white people walk around campus having unknowingly absorbed this particular facet of white supremacy, and the leaders of the institution do little to make us believe that white supremacy is something worth challenging in the first place. This is not to say that giving people space in public is a way to be anti-racist; the sidewalk question is just one way in which black people are made to feel unwelcome. This is to say that essentially every aspect of our society, including the way we physically move through space, has been shaped by a racist legacy. Uprooting that white supremacy requires both recognizing its scale and disrupting it however it shows up.”

Did you see it? Adding “anti-racist” to that line ensured a campus-wide (mostly on Zoom) push to get this article out to the public.

Do you know what I call rude people who won’t get out of other people’s way while walking? New Yorkers. White New Yorkers, black New Yorkers, blue New Yorkers, and green New Yorkers. By Northwestern’s logic, every New Yorker is now a white supremacist.

In an interview with OutKick on Monday, Jesse Kelly of The First TV described the current state of the college system:

“My thought is that the entire college system in the United States of America should be razed to the ground, every employee should be fired, and every building should be burned down.

“Why? Just to remind everyone how absolutely poisonous it is when you send your kids off to Communist training camps, where they learn to hate the country that has blessed them so much. That’s my thought.

“The university system in the United States of America is broken and beyond repair. It’s flat-out anti-America.”

The key line: colleges and universities are where young people “learn to hate the country that has blessed them so much.”

That’s exactly what this Northwestern column tried to accomplish. Pathetic.

  1. Hmmmm, so a few white students walk rudely on Northwestern University sidewalks…Black people block interstates, completely shutdown cities and burn, steal, assault and kill anything in sight. I’d say white people have some catching up to do.

  2. We know the answer to this problem since Asians have also been afflicted with the white supremacy walk. Blacks answer to this pressing issue is to violently assault the pedestrians. Often from behind, maybe a kick or two while they are on the ground. This is how you correct the problem of egregious walkers.

  3. Meanwhile we are heading into our fourth generation of school children and public establishments being de-segregated. No average age college kid alive today has ever experienced Jim Crow. This is all fake.

  4. These institutions have truly lost their minds. Question – are there any conservative (or even moderate, middle of the road) colleges left in America? I couldn’t imagine having school-age children in this day and age.

    • There are plenty fortunately. You just have to look for them. And avoid most of the so-called “elite” institutions such as the Ivys, Northwestern, Duke, the Cals, UVAs, ect. They are all bastions of racialism and “wokeness”, train coddled snowflakes and are not teaching anyone HOW to think. Even the Harvard faculty is pessimistic on the school’s future based on recent polls there. Folks will soon catch on that these so-called “elite” schools have become a joke and the only thing hard about them is getting in.

  5. ‘Kenny Allen’ could truly benefit from cultivating one or multiple meaningful hobbies.

    KA could likely benefit from more fiber in his (?) diet.

    KA could also benefit from cultivating strong friendships.

    KA could, furthermore, above all else, benefit from cultivating romantic relationships.

    I believe that KA, and all others of his (?) ilk, lack in all of these (along with MANY other) enriching aspects of life.

    Drivel like this is the end result.

  6. No thanks. I`m still keeping my white card. I`m sure if the sidewalk is too difficult for Kenny to handle he can just go back to his safe room and take the knee. 50K per year to learn this shit?

  7. I CANT HELP IT, BUT MUST POINT IT OUT.
    BLACK GUYS WITH LONG PANTS DOWN AROUND THEIR ASSES, ARE DIFFICULT TO NOT SEE, LIKE AS UNABLE TO WALK AS GOD INTENDED. WATCH THEIR GATE, THEIR LEGS SWING WILDLY OUT OF ALIGNMENT AND ARE SIMPLY TRYING TO NOT HAVE THERI PANTS FALL DOWN, AFTER EVERY 4TH STRIDE & PULLING THEM UP WITH THE HAND THAT DOESNT HAVE AN O’BAMA PHONE IN IT, YOU KNOW THE ONE I PAID FOR….I GUESS I JUST WALK NORMALLY.
