This is a work in progress:
All the world is a white stage – Even though whites have never been more than a third of mankind, white history is what matters. Thousands of years of history in India, China, Africa and so on do not matter apart from their Colonial Period and Contributions to Mankind. But throw in a few token chapters so you can put “world” in your title.
“What went wrong” – cover this in the token chapters if you can do it without pointing a finger at white people. Do not forget to use the word “static”.
White Americans and Englishmen – position them as the good guys of history or at least as well-meaning. Take their words at face value. Do not question or frame their actions in any way that would make them appear backward, strange, savage or evil. Power corrupts – except for them
Passing of the Torch Doctrine – do not write about the history of a given piece of land or a given people, from beginning to end. Instead write about the History of Civilization: Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, western Europe, America. Like that. Never mind that China and the Muslim world have been, even by Western standards, the most advanced civilizations for hundreds of years. Never mind that Anglos smacked down the Torch, sinking Britain into a dark age.
The three kinds of inventions:
- invention – something invented by a white person. People of colour try to invent stuff but in their hands they are just playthings, precursors or do not work properly. It is not a true invention until a white person makes a few changes and takes credit.
- contribution – something invented by a person of colour that white people learn how to do. Call it an “achievement” for added condescension. Or just leave it out: after all, white people could have invented it if they wanted to.
- mysteries – stuff invented by people of colour that white people do not know how to do. Like building pyramids, making earthquake-proof walls without mortar – or moving heavy things without using wheels.
Honorary whites – what to make brown people in the Middle East and North Africa when they do something important, like invent the alphabet or start a world religion. Same for early man. Make them look white in pictures.
Colonial vocabulary – Use it! You can still get away with words like tribe, chief, hut, Oriental, Asian, warriors, medicine man, exotic, minorities, development and terrorist. But do not go overboard: use ally, interest payments and civilian casualties instead of vassal state, tribute and slaughter.
Trust only white authors and scholars in your research. People of colour are not fair-minded about their own history – or anyone else’s for that matter.
