I find it very ironic that the woke are attacking a Quebec work entitled White Nigger of America because, wow, the word nigger was used at a time when most little woke were not even a project in their father's testicles or in the test tube.
This work is left-wing and is a cry from the heart for better conditions for francophones in Quebec, whether one agrees or not with what it says, it remains a striking text to try to "wake up" a certain conscience on a situation considered problematic linked to poverty and discrimination in another era less inclined to the cancel culture and which did not bother with these kinds of words
The author is far from being a white supremacist
I quote (leslibraire.ca)
---- Pierre Vallières, a 35-year-old Quebec journalist, editor-in-chief of Le Devoir, co-director of "Cité Libre", then host of "Parti-Pris" and finally founder of "Révolution québécoise", was arrested in 1967 in New York while demonstrating with his comrade Charles Gagnon in solidarity with militants of the Front de Libération du Québec.
Himself an activist of this organization, he was to be charged with political and moral responsibility (if not material, which it has always been admitted was not involved) for a murderous attack on a factory that had just locked out its striking workers. Extradited to Quebec, he was sentenced in 1968 to life imprisonment, a sentence he is still serving in the Montreal penitentiary.
This essay, written in prison, is both the autobiography of a young, self-taught Canadian worker and an analysis of the situation of those Quebecers who, for him, in the American world, are considered "white niggers. ---
Unfortunately, today's wokes don't go beyond the word "nigger", incapable of prolonged reading and thinking beyond the terminology for many of them
Besides, many of the people I know are also fervent ecologists who change their phone more often than their underwear
Extract from the text Nègre Blanc d'Amérique by Pierre Vallières
"Are they not, since the establishment of New France, in the 17th century, the servants of the imperialists, the "white negroes of America"? Were they not, like the Blacks of America, imported to serve as cheap labor in the New World? The only difference between them is the color of their skin and their continent of origin. After three centuries, their condition has remained the same. They are still a pool of cheap labor which the owners of capital are free to make work or to reduce to unemployment, according to their financial interests, which they are free to pay badly, to mistreat and to trample.
