“The notion of waking up early and starting your day with the rising sun is often associated with productivity, success, and a strong work ethic. However, this seemingly innocuous concept is not without its historical and cultural implications. In this article, we will explore the origins of the early-rising narrative and how it is rooted in white supremacy, contributing to the perpetuation of racial inequalities.”
There are a thousand angles this fruitcake could possibly have taken to tie waking up with the sun (a natural function of the circadian rhythm, btw) with evil white racism, each more retarded than the last.
He settled on the classic muh slavery talking point:
“The early-rising ideology is not inherently racist; however, its connections to white supremacy can be seen when examining the broader historical and social contexts. During the era of European colonialism and the Atlantic slave trade, the concept of hard work and productivity became intertwined with race.
Enslaved Africans were forced to work tirelessly from sunrise to sunset, and their white oppressors often used the rhetoric of hard work and discipline to justify their inhumane treatment. This created a false narrative that Africans were inherently lazy and needed the “civilizing” influence of their white masters to teach them the value of work.
This stereotype has persisted and continues to be perpetuated in various forms, such as the “model minority” myth, which suggests that certain racial and ethnic groups are inherently more disciplined and successful than others.”
The old “model minority” myth!
Because Asians making more money and earning higher education and going to jail less often than whites is, of course, White Supremacy™!
Because logic. Because Tolerance™. Because Diversity™, and all of Our Values™.
