It seems in the online world of dictionaries, the lexicographers are not only politically correct; they’re “woke.”
For example, the Oxford Dictionary of English studies the use of words across the worldwide web and selects an official “word of the year.”
Last year, the lexicographers for the Oxford English Dictionary determined the word of the year was “toxic.”
Toxic air, toxic politics, toxic incel, and toxic masculinity to name just a few uses of their chosen word toxic.
This has become the norm for online dictionaries. Their specified employees search online for how words like bias, marginalized, and disparities widen the scope of discrimination. In particular, racial discrimination discussions on social media such as Twitter.
We’ve seen the copious use of the toxic term white privileged online and across social media. Today, in addition, they’ve using the toxic term “White Fragility.”
What is White Fragility?
The Oxford English Dictionary defines it:
Discomfort and defensive on the part of a white person when confronted by information about racial inequality and injustice.
Apparently, white fragility is quite a useful word in the understanding of those who claim they’ve suffer racism from not only the white individual, but also from white society as a whole.
“White” is the problem
According to Leftists, whites “wallow” in white fragility like pigs wallow in mud.
Apparently, white people, in all their supposed white privilege are either unaware of their privilege or when they become aware of it, instead of acknowledging it become wounded, fearful, angry and defensive.
It’s ironic that on one hand whites are so exceedingly powerful and scheming that they sit in closed door meetings, smoking cigars, and maliciously planning how to subjugate other groups such as blacks and the LGBTQRSTUVWXZ, thereby preventing them from opportunities and success.
Yet on the other hand, whites can’t deal with claims of sexism, misogyny or racism. Oh no, as Professors of Sociology Robin DiAngelo (the “expect” on race relations and racial disparities) states:
White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation.
It’s generally assumed that whites are the oppressor of the supposed oppressed; whites are the perpetrators and oppressed groups are their victims.
The “Leftists” Solution
Inner reflection and examination, literally the interrogation of oneself’s whiteness, and then publicly denouncing their white prividge as wicked and evil. Ultimately, renouncing their whiteness. They will not be satisfied until whites are ashamed of their whiteness.
The Leftist thought police have determined that their use of white fragility will shut down discussion and argumentation against their false narrative and the only means for oppressed groups to be liberated from the oppression of the oppressors is to “shut down whites.”
Absolutely strange and utter nonsense that whites have structural privileges in this country solely based on the color of their skin. It’s ridiculous that whiteness is an evil that must be fought against to release the constraints, in other words, the chains that have been used to bind the oppressed by the oppressor to prevent them from their rightful liberation.
Absolute propagandized nonsense.
P. S. Last week, Dictionary.com added White Fragility to their online dictionary. Defining it:
Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A. Guggenheim
