California Professor starts presentation by saying that as white American she is ‘by definition RACIST’

Bucholtz also railed against capitalizing the “W” in the word “white,” even though the AP Stylebook for journalists earlier this year ruled that the “B” in “black” must be capitalized when referring to black people. “I hate seeing when people capitalize ‘white,'” she said. “It’s not the same kind of category. Also, white supremacists love capitalizing white, so for me, it’s a political decision not to capitalize it and to recognize it as a construct that has built itself out of the racial system or at the top of the racial system by opting out of being racialized.”

White people have built a system of white supremacy “to oppress everybody else,” Bucholtz argued. The professor shared with her audience a link to documents from a workshop on how to be “white allies, apprentices and accomplices.” Bucholtz authors a journal titled ‘The Public Life of White Affects’ and wrote a textbook on how white children use language to display identities that position themselves in a school’s racialized social order.

Twitter users declined to share in Bucholtz’s self-guilt over being white, with one saying, “Suit yourself,” and another tweeting, “She can remove the ‘by definition’ and speak for herself.” One commenter was only glad that he hadn’t ended up in a linguistics class in Santa Barbara: “Thank God I went to trade school instead of college.”
