Gen Z: Whites are 'oppressors' -- especially Jews

"White people are oppressors," say 79 percent of young Americans 18 to 24 years old in a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris poll. "Nonwhite people and people of certain groups have been oppressed and . . . should be favored today at universities and for employment, they believe. Yet only 51 percent says this ideology is "helpful" to society, while 49 percent say it's "hurtful."


Older Americans disagree strongly with the first statement and say dividing society into oppressed and oppressors is "hurtful."


Overall, 64 percent said "identity politics based on race has come to dominate at our elite universities, with only 36 percent saying that elite universities "operate primarily on the basis of merit and accomplishments without regard to race." Gen Z respondents were even more likely to say that identity politics dominates: 69 percent agreed.


Since Gen Z sees white as oppressors, perhaps it's not surprising that they agree that "Jews as a class are oppressors" by a two to one margin. Older Americans strongly disagreed.



While most Americans believe a two-state solution would end the Israel-Palestinian conflict, 51 percent of young Americans say Israel should "be ended and given to Hamas," writes Jon Levine in the New York Post.


Most Americans support Israel, but Gen Z responded split 50-50 on whether they support Israel or Hamas. (But 58 percent say Hamas' goal is genocide of Jews, implying that some are OK with that.)


Young people don't know what they're opining about, write Mark Penn and Andrew Stein in a New York Post commentary.


"Contrary to the facts, 44 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds believe Israel is not a democracy, and 41 percent say Israel does not allow Arabs to vote in elections," they write. Yet, 41 percent "think Hamas rules democratically and is not authoritarian."


Only half realize that Israel "respects the rights of religious and ethnic minorities" and lets gay people live openly.


Forty-five percent of Gen Z respondents think Hamas, which has executed suspected homosexuals, allows gay people to live together openly, Penn and Stein write. (Hence "Queers for Palestine.") Fifty-one percent believe Hamas respects the rights of religious and ethnic minorities. "Hamas’ charter explicitly advocates the eradication of Jews."

Once we remove government interference from universities, especially in their subsidization via student loans, we will turn a very important corner.


Until then, we'll continue to churn out sycophants who parrot the talking points espoused by their professors--typically marxist/communist/non-classical liberals--to the detriment of free thought and progression necessary to a successful constitutional republic.

I would urge Gen Z to pick up some history books, but I know it's hopeless. They don't read and find reading a quaint holdover from the past. Idiots.

And have never had an original thought in their lives. This is why I never talk to them - I know exactly what they think - or at least what they're going to regurgitate - about anything.

The best part of modern Liberal Arts schooling is how the professors have abandoned the teaching of history, critical thought, or education in general


College is no longer a place for white people, especially white men. Engineering and computer science excepted. Nor should white men apply for jobs at corporations, except for disproportionately high salaries. After all they aren't going to get promoted so no use working there except for lots of money.


Walk away from the universities and leave them to die. The knowledge is free from the campus and the college classroom is no longer a place to learn discipline of intellect, regulation of emotions or established principles. Much less a place to learn to order your thinki…

What would be the left's response to this near-identical survey:


"Do you think that blacks as a class are violent criminals and should be treated as violent criminals, or is that a false ideology?" Can you imagine the indignant outcry? And rightly so. Any such sweeping generalization reeks of bigotry. That being said, there's a lot more hard evidence that, per capita, American blacks have a higher tendency to be violent criminals than other groups -- whereas there is no such modern day "oppressor" evidence condemning Jews as a people.

It sure seems silly to pay for a college "education" that is really just good old fashioned brainwashing. We can get such misinformation any day of the week for free from the MSM.
