Peter and I are Racists

Twenty year old Peter Cvjetanovic, is a racist. We know he’s a racist because lots of people said so on Twitter He was in a march in Charlottesville, VA over the weekend. Then the Black Lives Matter people objected to him marching (like they do) and then some mental defect drove a car into the crowd. Well, let’s see what Peter the racist has to say for himself.

Peter says, “I came to this march for the message that white European culture has a right to be here just like every other culture.” Cvjetanovic added that he wanted to demonstrate against what he described as the “replacement of white heritage” and had come out to the march because of its protest over the removal of a statue of Confederate Army General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville.

Well, Peter, I guess then I’m a racist too. Because I also would like to see the European culture that this nation was founded upon be retained. For too long we who believe in our heritage have been forced to be silent on the subject or be ostracized by the general public. The strident shouting of the vocal minorities have drowned us out. Then we had a President who called the Boston police white racists. Later he made a hero of a black hoodlum who robbed a grocery and then was shot when he tried to wrestle the gun from a white policeman. The policeman was obviously a racist.

Yes, Peter, I too object to the removal of a statue of General Robert E. Lee because taking down a statue isn’t going to change history. Let’s face it, folks, we had a Civil War in this country and tearing down flags and removing statues isn’t going to change that. And, like Peter, I believe that White Lives Matter as much as any other lives and that as a Caucasian I have the right to be as proud of my race as African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Oriental-Americans and any other culture. My grandfather on my father’s side came from Hamburg, Germany. And on my mother’s side my ancestors came from London, England in 1627 and I’m proud of that. But I don’t call myself an English-German-American because people who like to hyphenate their names are just being silly. I am an American and that is good enough for me.

I’m not ashamed that I am a white person. I think that anyone who thinks I’m a racist just because I am white is basing their prejudice on the color of my skin and isn’t that supposed to be wrong? But, like Peter, because I am white I am automatically a racist. Our fate has already been decided by Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter.  We are doomed to be racists for the rest of our lives so we might as well get used to it because nothing is going to change in our favor. I’ve got your back, Peter. I hope you have mine.
