Are white Madison progressives making racial minorities sick?

Fighting ‘racialized micro-aggressions’ from implicitly biased progressives, one perceived slight at a time

‘Racial Battle Fatigue’

Gaudy wallpaper

Experts have examined the wallpaper at Stately Blaska Manor and determined it is in bad taste — even nausea-inducing — but not racially offensive..

Madison’s terribly “woke” leaders have decided that crime is a public health issue. So, too, apparently, is racism. Given that progressive Madison WI is Identity Politics Central, you’ll find no burning crosses or separate water fountains but plenty of micro-aggressions.

Micro-aggressions are making minority races sick, goes the theory — which was worth a $1 million grant from UW-Madison’s Partnership Fund for a Healthy Future. 

A.O.K.

Not in Madison, you bastard!

“The white majority context in which African-Americans live, work and raise their families is often hostile to them merely because of the color of their skin,” claims the winner of the five-year, $1 million grant: Nehemiah’s Justified Anger Network. The Rev. Alex Gee, proprietor.

“This ‘hostility’ allegedly afflicts liberal wards that twice voted for President Barack Obama, says former SW side neighbor Kevin Wymore. We know this because Kevin won his open records lawsuit against the university to uncover this stuff.

Turning micro-aggressions into macro dollars

Comment, respond, what do you thinkIn an op ed he wrote for the WI State Journal, Wymore tells that UW-Madison has bought in to “health equity” even though, as one grant-winning  proposal admits: “We have a hard time articulating the concept to our staff, much less the community.” 

“People of color experience racialized micro-aggressions, often on a daily basis, which impact their physical and mental health. These verbal, behavioral or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, create Racial Battle Fatigue.

Racialized micro-aggressions are defined as “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color” within predominantly white systems and institutions.

Hey, people. Check your wallpaper! This being Madison, someone will be offended!

Changing the social and community context, boss!

Never mind addressing a nine percent proficiency rate in reading and writing. Ignore the car jackings, gun play and substance abuse. Forget about eating healthy and exercising. Cry “racial justice” and win money.

What is Nehemiah’s prescription? According to the grant proposal: “We intend to change the social and community context for African-Americans in Madison at both the grassroots and professional levels as well as with white community members who have self-identified as aspiring allies in achieving racial justice.” Could they be any more explicit! Get with the program, liberals!

Blaska’s Bottom Line: A grant reviewer’s comments critiqued another grantee’s project, called “Race to Equity Wisconsin,” as lacking clear, measurable goals, making a meaningful evaluation impossible. But it sure feels good.

  1. ”We intend to change the social and community context…”

    Probably just the White Supremacy talking, but a few questions: Any mission statement (besides that Authentic Frontier Gibberish slobbering), stated/quantifiable goals, a system of accountability, “best practices” recognition, and will there be a “secret handshake” between them and the FreeDUMB Inc/Derail The Jail cabal??

    Most importantly, is there a website where @AnonyBob, et al, can pummel the Donate Now button in order to siphon off a little White Lefty Guilt; asking for a friend…

    Anywho, I wonder how much flack Herr Wymore will take, and is there an over/under on how many times he’ll be asked, nay IMPLORED, to check his privilege and embrace White Fragility?

    Call me cynical, but I breathlessly await seeing how the funds are dispersed. The hiring…um…protocol, the background/qualifications of the employees, the “creative” job titles, and the salaries…OH YEAH, the salaries.

        The Gotch has always been wary of Geeks (sic) Bearing Gifts, but let’s look at the bright side: it supplies you with an in to post slobbering nonsense AND remain on topic…kinda sorta.

        Win-win, am I right?

        Anywho: “They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.”

        Heck; I hate but three things:
        *running into a cold, wind-whipped rain,
        *the Chicago Bears, and
        *non-variegated Bishops Weed

        If you don’t see yourself on that list, $#!t-can your weak-titted, squishy handshake, weenie whining; it ain’t your best side.

          C’mon, surely you jest; doesn’t laughing my @$$ off while deftly rope-a-doping your maniacally disjointed slobberings count for nothing?

          If that ain’t a sense of humor (granted, at your expense) then the terrorists have won…

    Why is it that regressive lefty program descriptions usually consist of unintelligible phrasing that sounds modern woke but leaves the reader without any clear idea of what exactly the program is about.

    Rev. Gee,
    Study what Robert L. Woodson is doing, particularly with mentorship because that is what these kids really need and leave the victimology-got-no-agency defeatist garbage to Madison’s race hustler poster child Ali Muldrow.

    You got your money now do some concrete good with it and leave the restructuring society BS to others because it isn’t the highest priority and will occur organically anyway as your lost and troubled sisters and brothers get their act together. You can help them do that Rev.

      Years ago, Gee’s Nehemiah organization seemed to be doing much of what the Woodson Center is doing now. It seemed like a noble and level-headed approach to the problems facing the black community in Madison. That’s why I donated to their efforts. But a few years ago, when he started his Justified Anger program, I could see that he was becoming a-woke, and I withheld any more donations. Perhaps he realized that there was more money to be made by appealing to Madison’s liberals than to conservatives. What a sham(e).
