Marzui Attacks Eurocentrism

In the old days in Europe the cultural exclusivity was religious. There was a time at Oxford university one had to subscribe to the articles of the Church of England to be academically eligible. Harvard University was named after a Puritan minister in the 1630’s, was a church sponsored institution for two centuries. The problem at that time was not not Eurocentrism, it was Christocentrism. Harvard was culturally exclusive, but in a religious sense.

The politics of the quota system at American universities was originally intended to restrict the number of Jews admitted in favor of Christians — Christocentrism gone mad. There is still a lot of Christocentrism left at American universities, but most of the university life has been secularized. However, as the 20th century is coming to an end, we have reached yet another cultural frontier. Just as Harvard once had to try and shed off Christocentrism, all American campuses now must shed off excessive Eurocentrism….

Ali Mazrui
Professor — State University New York
Round Table Discussion — circa 1990

Here is the cat is let out of the bag.

1.) Note the reason is all American campuses must now shed off excessive Eurocentrism is precisely because in Eurocentrism one finds the Christocentrism that was previously sloughed off and yet remains expressed slightly in the culture that is Eurocentrism. This quote, from one of the enemies of the West, ties together for us in the most tightly connected fashion the connection in the minds of our enemies between the Christian faith and the White Anglo Saxon Christian and the culture that they built.

What this means of course is that the war being waged against the white man is being waged precisely because the white man was the carrier of the Christian faith — and yet still retains the slumbering remnant of Christianity in its cultural code. What people like Mazrui, Obango, Holder, and other epistemologically self conscious minorities == as well as far more self hating white people understand == is that if Eurocentrism can be finally destroyed then their previous attack to kill Christ will be largely successful. (Though they know that Christ can never be killed so they will be vigilant in each generation to do what must be done in order to keep Christ at bay. They can not succeed.)

Our enemies positively must destroy the White Anglo Saxon Christian Eurocentrism. It is a threat to all that they desire to build on the grave of the West and Christianity.

As an aside it might be asked where the origin of the self hatred of whites lies. The answer is simple. Self hating whites hate Christ and hate God’s moral law and anything of Christ that remains yet in their culture. As such they will, by way of multiculturalism and political correctness, make league with pagan minorities (most often cultural Marxist in their ideology) by ginning up past real and perceived minority grievances, in order to overthrow what remains of Christo-centrism and Euro-centrism. The real irony is when this is pursued in the Church all in the name of Christ. The real Christ will be murdered by a false Christ by self hating whites who would prefer civilizaitonal death than being ruled by Christ.

2.) When the universities favored Christians over Jews there was obviously an understanding that these united States was to be for Christians and be a Christian nation. Was there a reason why the universities at one time were careful to restrict the number of Jews?

3.) When Mazrui mentions that the universities became secularized and so moved away from Christocentrism there is an absolute necessity to understand that this move to the secular was in actuality a move towards anthropocentrism in any number of faith forms. In other words the centrism of Christianity in the universities was exchanged for the centrism of some other faith system. The idea of the “secular” is a myth.

4.) Like it or not Christianity and Christocentrism has been identified with the European and his Eurocentrism by our enemies. It is a convenient identification because by making this identification our enemies can attack us as “racists” when we defend the Christianity that made Europe, Europe when in point of fact we are “Christianists.” Well, if Christianist equals racist then let the whole world be covered with the success of the Gospel turning all men into racists as they are converted to Christianity.

  1. Self hating whites hate Christ and hate God’s moral law and anything of Christ that remains yet in their culture.

    I’ve heard of self-hating Jews, but I’ve never heard of self-hating whites.

    What are some of the clear identifying marks of a self-hating white so that I can recognize them?

    1. What are some of the clear identifying marks of a self-hating white so that I can recognize them?

      The embracing of Cultural Marxism, the voting for Democrats and almost all Republicans, the embrace of feminism, or multiculturalism, or political correctness or alienism. The hatred of Liberty, or small market biblical capitalism (vis a vis Corporatism). The embrace of amnesty for illegal immigrants.

      Those provide a good starting point.

  2. Is it sufficient for a white person to hate Christ and God’s moral law to identify them as a self-hating white?

    1. Yes … but the self hatred here manifests itself as seeking to pull down all that was built up in the West because the West was Christendom.

  3. “All them that hate me love death.”

    I’d classify anyone who rejects Christ as ultimately self-hating, in that their path leads ultimately to their own destruction.

    Whites as a racial group are pursuing a religion of masochism and (self) annihilation. When we were Christian, Christ bore our guilt and redeemed us as individuals and to a very large degree as a people. Now without Christ the only resolution of our guilt is for European culture and peoplehood to pass into oblivion.

    Christians who welcome our collective displacement as European Peoples are buying into a sick, post-Christian worldview and are in a way breaking the Apostolic command that each “care for his own”. They make common cause with the infidel.

  4. There is that group of liberals that despise their conception of what it means to be white and as such are intentional haters of their own kind. Unfortunately the church is filled with self loathing idiots that think like liberals and wallow at the feet of the multicultural alienists.

    And there are a considerable number that garner the epithet “white hater” not because they feel hatred, but because their actions, often motivated by deluded feelings of compassion for the ostensibly oppressed, are detrimental to the health of the race.

    Additionally there is Christian Identity and secular white nationalists, neither of which can be said to hate the white race whose efforts, despite their good intentions, are both personally and culturally destructive. Unless the Lord build the house they labor in vain.

    The behavior of all of the above is detrimental to the white race because it is contrary to the Word of God.

    All that hate Me love death. That doesn’t need to be intentional hatred of God and it certainly doesn’t mean that men actually love the idea of death. No sane person loves death. The verse condemns those things that are loved the consequence of which is death. So they are said to love death itself.

    1. Once upon a time there was a colony of Bluebirds living in Bluebird-ville. The Bluebirds being not a particularly wise people thought it would be alright if they allowed just a few Sparrows to live in their colony with them. That might have worked except over the course of time, the Sparrows. being clever birds, were able to convince the Bluebirds that Bluebird-ville wasn’t fair to Sparrows. The Sparrows even accused the Bluebirds of being “Sparrowists.” This hurt the feelings of the poor poor Bluebirds and made them feel terribly terribly guilty and so they resolved that they would do more to accommodate the Sparrows in their midst.

      And so the Bluebirds, hearing the accusations of Institutional Bluebirdism decided to dismantle their environmental infrastructure in order to make it more commodious to Sparrows. The Bluebirds decided to make their environment more secular, striving to give Bluebird-ville a feel of cultural neutrality where principled Bird pluralism insured that all Birds were equal. As they were doing their work of tearing down the Institutional Bluebirdism they chirped merrily along the way glorying in their Bluebird nobility.

      However once the Blue Birds succeeded they suddenly discover that even though they did not directly kill themselves they did a deed that guaranteed their death for Bluebirds can only survive in the environment that is good for Bluebirds.

    1. Egads! I would hope that whites are “privileged” in a society that they built. When I invite a guest into my home, I hope they recognize that they don’t have the same privileges in my house as I do. Now all the guests (invited and gatecrashers) want the privileges AND the house to boot.
