Dead White Men
Kirt's Cogitations™ #274

Dead White Men - RF CafeAs I read and post articles from early to mid last century technology and science magazines, it occurs to me how much Western civilization contributed to the world during that period in spite of its acknowledged failings in some areas. Western civilization fought major wars in the last century - sacrificing hundreds of thousands of our countrymen's lives* - to keep people free from the iron-fisted rule of dictators. Do some research into what kinds of atrocities other countries committed that drew us into those wars. Keep that in mind, please, as you listen to the increasingly frequent brazen, disparaging and racist commentary against White Europeans and their descendants by elitists in the entertainment industry, in the press, and in government offices. I, for one, am sick of the 'dead White men' and 'Whiteness' slanders, and wonder why people in positions to challenge it are not doing so.

This might be the first occurrence in the history of mankind where a race of people self-annihilates out of an insane, unjustifiable concept of needing to atone for misdoings of prior generations. Which other race seeks to extinct itself because of the way it treated other people groups in the world - both within and without their particular race? I can answer that for you - none.

The next time you hear someone, regardless of race, angrily indict White people's history, ask yourself, if you are White, whether you are willing to suffer the personal assault against your motives or even your mere existence by ignoring the comment. Challenge the assertion by educating yourself on your race's uncountable positive contributions to the modern world and citing some of the atrocities committed by other races. I do.

Defending your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is part of your birthright - at least for now. Oh, and it's not racist, either.

WWI, WWII, Korea body counts.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
