The Library Journal, a trade publication described as “global community of more than 200,000 librarians and educators” across the United States, shared an article on its Twitter account yesterday arguing that library collections are too white.
Sofia Leung, who works as the Teaching And Learning Program Manager at MIT libraries, wrote an article titled, “Whiteness as Collections” to essentially argue for a racist book burning. This deranged academic wants the destruction of literature and knowledge she considers to be “too white.”
The crux of her incoherent rant is as follows:
If you look at any United States library’s collection, especially those in higher education institutions, most of the collections (books, journals, archival papers, other media, etc.) are written by white dudes writing about white ideas, white things, or ideas, people, and things they stole from POC and then claimed as white property with all of the “rights to use and enjoyment of” that Harris describes in her article. When most of our collections filled with this so-called “knowledge,” it continues to validate only white voices and perspectives and erases the voices of people of color. Collections are representations of what librarians (or faculty) deem to be authoritative knowledge and as we know, this field and educational institutions, historically, and currently, have been sites of whiteness.
Library collections continue to promote and proliferate whiteness with their very existence and the fact that they are physically taking up space in our libraries. They are paid for using money that was usually ill-gotten and at the cost of black and brown lives via the prison industrial complex, the spoils of war, etc. Libraries filled with mostly white collections indicates that we don’t care about what POC think, we don’t care to hear from POC themselves, we don’t consider POC to be scholars, we don’t think POC are as valuable, knowledgeable, or as important as white people. To return to the Harris quote from above, library collections and spaces have historically kept out Black, Indigenous, People of Color as they were meant to do and continue to do. One only has to look at the most recent incident at the library of my alma mater, Barnard College, where several security guards tried to kick out a Black Columbia student for being Black.
This is apart of a global push by the Left toward the end of knowledge and thought as we know it. All actual disciplines are to be replaced with Cultural Marxist agitprop with classic literature banned and Soviet-style commissars indoctrinating children.
The University of Tulsa just abolished its traditional departments, including Economics and PoliSci.
Instead, it now has four broad divisions called "Ecology, Environment & Sustainability," "Human Biology and Behavior," "Fine Arts and Media" and… "Humanities & Social Justice." pic.twitter.com/9hvKBDov6j

“What the social justice academic left, and neoliberal bean counters in college administration, are doing is a smokeless cathedral burn of our civilization’s collective memory,” wrote Rod Dreyer in The American Conservative.
“Now is the time to strengthen the educational institutions and libraries that stand against this Dark Age, and build new ones that do,” Dreyer wrote for his conclusion.
The insipid cultural Marxism of the totalitarian Left has gone too far. Until we take a bold stand on behalf of Western Civilization, we are on a crash course toward an Orwellian dark age enforced by Big Brother.
Immigration Patriots Gather in DC to Commemorate Individuals Killed by Illegal Aliens
On July 3, 2020, a group of Immigration Patriots gathered in Washington, D.C. to celebrate an event— Salute to America and Prayer Vigil — at the Freedom Plaza.
The event was dedicated to president Donald Trump, who won on an America First immigration platform, and individuals who were murdered by illegal aliens.
Several immigration patriot groups such as the Remembrance Project were in attendance.
BLP reached out to Remembrance Project members for their thoughts on the event.
Diane Atkins, New York coordinator for The Remembrance Project, commented:
We gathered to pray for President Trump and our nation and hold a vigil for Americans killed by illegal aliens. We wanted to show President Trump that we support his America First agenda and stand for law and order. And most importantly as Christians, we must pray and fight against the evil scourge sweeping over our nation that seeks to destroy us all.
Fredy Burgos Jr., The Remembrance Project’s Virginia coordinator, added:
As a naturalized citizen my parents sacrificed family and fortune to move to the United States, legally. It would be a tragedy and an insult to millions of legal residents and The Remembrance Project’s angel families if our ‘law and order’ president follows bad advice and decides to place illegal aliens above the law and goes along with amnesty. No one is above the law. By the way, there have been seven (7) amnesties since 1986, along with a promise for a border wall; and to this day, no Wall for security! All we got was more illegal aliens who snub their noses to us. My family came here legally. There is a big front door. Use it, or leave! I’m for a lawful nation not a lawless nation. I”m for America First, not America last.
12 police officers were present to keep order at the event.
Immigration is arguably the hottest issue going into the 2020 elections.
The political implications regarding the voting patterns of immigrants is profound.
President Trump must promote immigration hawks running for Congress and make sure that he gets solid majorities in Congress.
In doing so, he can move his agenda forward without a problem.
