PCG's Robert Morley Denounces Missouri Protests

PCG's Robert Morley has written an article once again condemning the protests at the University of Missouri ("Race Riots Coming to a College Campus Near You", November 20, 2015).

Near the end of the article Morley says:
But realize that the Bible says that because America won’t change, race wars are in the future.
The Bible does not say this. Instead this is an allusion to PCG's false prophecy of "race war". PCG has taught since 1992 that in the near future African Americans will launch a wave of riots against the white majority. The terms "race war" and "race riots" seem to refer to the same thing in PCG's jargon. Supposedly this wave of riots will apparently occur everywhere in America at the same time.

This is a racist false prophecy that vilifies African Americans and condemn them as being fated to attack the white majority in the near future. PCG is exploiting current protests in the University of Missouri to once again promote this racist idea.

Elsewhere in the article Morley portrays the protesters in a negative way. He even condemns President Wolfe for supposedly not fighting the protesters.
But when Wolfe resigned, it was not for the good of the students. He effectively threw tinder under every college campus in America, including his own.

Wolfe’s refusal to fight—specifically his refusal to confront the lies and expose the racist underpinnings of his accusers—validated the ideas of the radical black empowerment movement. It empowered the radical left. And now the sparks from his campus are igniting similar protests on college campuses across America.
What really empowered the protesters was that they were persuaded that those in charge of the University did not take the problem of racism seriously.

Morley insists that there is no evidence of systematic racism at the University. Note the way Morley denigrates the protesters and minimizes the issues, even referring to the acts in question as "so-called incidents of racism".
But consider the situation at Mizzou. First, realize that there was no evidence of systemic racism at the university. None. Protesters ranted about the supposedly racist system in America but astoundingly were full of generalities and short of specifics.

Second, the so-called incidents of racism that occurred were few and mostly anecdotal. One white student supposedly referred to a black student in a derogatory way. There were other similar occurrences that essentially amounted to name-calling. The police were never called. No reports were filed. One of the most high-profile cases didn’t even occur on campus or by confirmed students. In essence, almost every supposed incident amounted to a “he said, she said.” There was a case where a swastika was drawn on a bathroom wall with human excrement. But nobody knows who did it. In another case, someone painted over the word “black” on the Black Cultural Center sign. In 2010—five years ago—two white students dumped cotton balls onto the lawn outside the Black Culture Center. Not to say that these actions should be condoned, but does this sound like an epidemic in a college with an enrollment of over 35,000 people?
Morley then states that the student body president is "a documented liar".

Morley then insists that the protesters do not have honorable motives.
But if the University of Mizzou is not a hotbed of white racism, what were the protests really about?

Power. Money. And racism of a different kind.
Although Morley seems quite eager to deny racism by whites ("so-called incidents of racism") he seems perfectly happy to call the African American protesters as racist.

He then accuses these protesters of promoting "propaganda trying to brainwash students" about racism.
The ultimatum went on to demand that all students and faculty be mandated to take racial awareness and inclusion curriculum. This is the type of grievance indoctrination promoted by groups such as the Pacific Educational Group. Basically, it is propaganda trying to brainwash students into believing that America as a nation is inherently racist and that all white people are subconsciously racist even if they don’t appear to be.
Instead of trying to help people understand the situation Morley presents the protesters' demands as something frightening. What is so strange about noting that racism has been a most unfortunate problem for so long within American history? How could things like racism, the tragic history of slavery and segregation not affect things even today. These facts do not mean we should despair but rather we should boldly confront such issues in order to create a better society for all Americans.

Also as Morley's own article shows there is a lot of misunderstanding and lack of awareness of the issues of racism out there. It is good for people to be informed about perspectives they may not have previously known of. Learning new things and new perspectives is education.

But Morley's vilification of such curriculum shows he is uninterested in what they have to say and is trying to convince other people not to engage with what such curriculum should happen to say. Rather we should boldly confront such curriculum. If they say good things let us accept it. If it is wrong then say it is wrong. But let us not just bluntly condemn it without understanding what they are saying.
The protests are not about equality. Just like the “hands up, don’t shoot” movement, which is based on a lie, really isn’t about ending police brutality. This is about power and money, plain and simple. Just look at Al Sharpton, Van Jones, Louis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright and the rest of their grievance industry, race-baiting ilk that is increasingly being legitimized in the media and by the White House. 
Is it not amazing how Morley talks about racism as though it is just something in African Americans' heads? And why does Morley blame the media and the White House instead of racism? This redefines African Americans' protests as the real problem instead of racism.
These radicals don’t really care about ending racism. They just care about black empowerment. The Washington Post reported that protesters shouted a profanity-laced, racially charged tirade. One student was pinned against the wall while a student yelled in her face. Are these protesters yelling racial slurs really concerned about ending racism? Why didn’t you see any of the protesters renouncing this kind of activity?
The article is incorrect. It actually links to The Washington Times, a far right newspaper owned by a certain controversial religious group originating from Korea.

Also Morley's attempt to vilify African American protesters as racist show Morley's failure to understand the difference between a majority and a minority. As a minority African Americans are more vulnerable to being socially disadvantaged and oppressed then the white majority. Even in the impossible situation of every ethnic minority lashing out at the white majority it can be countered by the majority population.

But on the other hand if even only a critical mass of the white majority decide to impose racially discriminatory rules and regulations upon ethnic minorities it can be forced upon all ethnic minorities. Such situations in fact did occur under slavery and segregation. Hence why ethnic minorities such as African Americans are so worried and concerned about the problem of racism. It is unfortunate that Morley seems to fail to appreciate this concern.

Morley ends the article with these words.
Tim Wolfe might have resigned out of love. But giving in to hateful radicals—who believe white people are inherently racist and who want to overthrow the “white male privilege” system of oppression that supposedly defines America—is not the way to show love to the other 35,000 students at Missouri University who are actually trying to get a real education, nor to the students at every other college that will now suffer similar disruptions.
Is Morley worried such protests are about to occur in PCG's own college? Are they scared that a similar protest could occur with HWA College? What nonsense. That seems very unlikely since that unaccredited College is completely by PCG whereas the University of Missouri belongs to many different persons and interests.

Why are they so worried about some Americans protesting? The mere fact that PCG seems so scared of follow Americans protesting seems to show that they do not view African Americans as follow Americans but as rivals who "need" to be kept in check and are "not of us".

If the PCG leadership viewed African Americans as just fellow Americans like themselves they would not be afraid of these protesters.
