All Woke Up: Libraries are racist

Empower Wisconsin | Jan. 14, 2021

In Woke Land, even the libraries are considered too white. 

So, the University of Wisconsin-Madison has taken upon itself to “fix” the perceived white supremacy problem with …. racism. 

UW’s new bibliography, “Disrupting Whiteness in Libraries and Librarianship,” aims to break up the inequities of the written word, according to the College Fix. 

“This bibliography contains citations and links (when available) to resources focused on race, racism, and disrupting whiteness and white supremacy in libraries. Particular emphasis is placed on the field of library and information science and librarianship as a profession,” the introduction reads. 

The bibliography cites an article titled, “White Librarianship in Blackface: Diversity Initiatives in (Library and Information Science).” 

“Whiteness…has permeated every aspect of librarianship, extending even to the initiatives we claim are committed to increasing diversity,” the article states. The piece defines “whiteness” not as skin color exclusively, but as “an ideological practice that can extend beyond notions of racial supremacy to other areas of dominance.”

The next logical step, of course, is a good old-fashioned book burning. Perhaps putting match to the classic dystopian novel, “Fahrenheit 451,” a book written nearly 70 years ago by a white guy.

  • Thank you for this information, Bryan. I am in Florida now for the winter, but will be returning to Kenosha by mid-May or earlier. I applied at city hall for my absentee ballots for February and April before I left Kenosha in December. Of course, I showed my ID when I did that. I am very concerned about ballots being made easily accessible without proof of appropriate ID. I would be happy to help with making sure the voter records are accurate and ballots are honestly distributed.
    I also think Nancy Pelosi has just lost her moral compass because of her unbounded hatred of our President. Also, I’m very concerned about our freedoms of speech and press. Many Americans have no knowledge of the many good things President Trump has accomplished and the illegal things done by Hunter Biden, and the Chinese connections of Eric Swalwell.
    Thank you for your hard work and vigilance!
