Tim Wise sure gets around!
Wise, an “anti-racist essayist”, has given over 600 campus speeches since 1995 that have done anything but promote “healing”, “harmony”, or “civility.” He managed to offend liberal CNN viewers with his suggestion that as a white man, he could converse on “blackness” with any authority. He got into a shouting match with citizen activism icon Andrew Breitbart.
Now, he has taken his race-resentments and grievances to a Catholic school to tell the Catholic students there at their church is to blame for the death of American Indians.
Campus reform writer Timothy Dionisopoulos has the details, including video:
Renowned anti-racist activist Tim Wise claimed that the Catholic Church is in part responsible for the slaughter of Native Americans in a speech funded by and hosted at a Catholic university on Wednesday.
Tim Wise told a group of Catholic students the Catholic Church was to blame for the slaughter of Native Americans.
“The Church was directly implicated in slaughtering the indigenous people on this continent,” said Wise, in his speech at Providence College, a catholic university in Providence, Rhode Island.
“The Church was directly implicated in the conquest of the Southwest,” he continued. “It was directly implicated in sending indigenous children to boarding schools to strip them of their culture, to cut their hair, to kill the Indian and save the man for Jesus.”
In the same speech entitled, “Beyond Diversity: Challenging Racism in an Age of Backlash,” Wise argued the church should render images of Jesus Christ as black for one-year in order to help Christians consider the notion that [humans] “are not race.”
“I will consider this notion that we are not race when we decide to make Jesus black for a year,” said Wise. “Just a year.”
