Canada’s CBC News demonstrated its “wokeness” by having an American professor and author of “Sure, I’ll be your Black Friend: Notes From the Other Side of the Fist Bump” interviewed on its highly rated show called Qwhere Ben Philippe talked about blowing up and gassing white people. CBC Radio’s website describes its show as “Canada’s liveliest arts, culture and entertainment magazine program that covers pop culture and high arts alike with forays into the most provocative and compelling cultural trends.”
Philippe, also a professor at Barnard College in New York City, spoke to Q host Talia Schlanger about “his first encounters being seen as different, to the visceral fear he’s lived with as a Black man grappling with stories of police brutality and the incessant terror that he might be next.”
In his discussion about his latest book and racial issues in North America, host Schlanger read an excerpt from his book in which he details what actions he would take in the event of a race war. Warning: it’s vile:
“When this race war hits its crescendo. I’ll gather you all into a beautifully decorated room under the pretense of unity. I’ll give a speech to civility and all the good times we share; I’ll smile as we raise glasses to your good, while health, while the detonator blinks under the table, knowing the exits are locked and the air vents filled with gas.”
So, you won’t be our “Black friend” after all? Somehow the interview reached nauseatingly higher levels of disgust; Schlanger responded with an apology. “I mean that’s…I’m a Jewish person, and my grandparents survived the holocaust. I can’t tell you how it felt to read that sentiment and I wanted to say to you that I’m so sorry that your experience of the world made you feel that way.”
When Schlanger told Philippe she did think he took a conceptual race war “to a place that I found really shocking,” the author replied, “fun fact: that section used to be so much longer, so thank you to my editor for, like, condensing it.”
