Take Back The Night

Hi everyone,

I want to point out from the off that I don't feel entirely comfortable writing this post. I am a privileged white male; that is simply a fact. Thus, writing something like this, about something that I will never have to deal with, makes me feel like more than a little bit of a fraud. There are many more people in the DePaul community and probably just in DAFT who know more about this issue or who can put these things better than I can. However, this is an issue that I believe is unbelievably important and one that does not receive anywhere near enough coverage. So, here I go.

What I want to talk to you about in this post is safety. Now, usually when you hear a statement like that it's from some awful Republican senator about to make a case for why we should illegally detain and torture more Middle Eastern people. Instead, I want to talk about upholding basic human rights.

There is an event taking place on April 28th on the DePaul University's Lincoln Park campus called Take Back The Night. It is an awareness-raising march, speak out, and vigil for women who even in this day and age suffer every day from the threat of sexual violence in their communities. Women, far more than men, are killed for the mere fact that they are women, viewed by their assailants as weak and thus as easy targets.

While you may not have heard about it, killings and related incidents occur at epidemic proportions all across the world. And that, quite frankly, is a travesty. This is no longer 19th century London of Jack the Ripper stories. We should have long ago reached the level of enlightenment where women are no longer viewed as inferior to men. The fact is, however, that we have not. It is only through our voices, through our presence, that we can send a message that this kind of behavior can no longer be tolerated. There is power in numbers, in protests, in the right to assembly, regardless of what the political, business and media establishments want you to believe.

There is much, much more to be said on this issue. If you yourself have something to say, make your voice heard by joining us in Lincoln Park on April 28th, beginning at 4:30 PM by the statue of Father Egan at the DePaul Student Center. Also, make sure to check out the Clothesline Project on the Quad beginning at 10 AM that same day. Full details of the event can be found here or go to takebackthenight.org to learn more.

Make the bad guys know that they cannot win using their tactics of terror and intimidation. Stand with us and make it happen.

  2. Whites have never done anything wrong that everyone else hasn't done.

    Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White countries for Everybody.

    They say the RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but they don't say Japan or Taiwan will solve the RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and assimilating with them.

    They say the final solution to the RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was a RACE problem, and the solution to this RACE problem was to bring hundreds of millions of non-blacks into EVERY black country and ONLY black countries?

    How long would it take them to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take black people to notice this, and what sane black man wouldn’t object to this "solution"?

    But when I tell the obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I'm a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist, what they are is anti-white.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white.

  3. The violence against women in US society has skyrocketed as the GENOCIDE against my people, White people increases.

    Mass Immigration and FORCED assimilation in ALL White countries and ONLY White countries is GENOCIDE

    UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article 2 1948

    ...any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group as such

    c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part

    Anti-racism is a codeword for anti-White

    Very true. So when a bunch of anti-white thugs smashed up a restaurant and beat people with baseball bats and hammers two days ago in Chicago, you stand with the white nationalists who were holding a business meeting?

    Or is your principled stand against terrorism only in support of anti-whites?
