One of the first terms Robin DiAngelo drops is racial stamina, but there is almost the expectation that you should know what these terms mean. As a non-woke person, these are new terms for me. And Robin DiAngelo uses these terms in passing without providing context clues to know what they mean. “Racial” functioning as an adjective or adverb in DiAngelo’s writing alters the succeeding word into some new Social Justice Warrior phrase. But in chapter 10 of White Fragility, we finally get enough context clues to define “racial stamina.”
Racial stamina may be colloquially defined as the ability to accept accusations of racism or racist behavior. Racial stamina has no regard for the merit of such accusations of race (because meritocracy is an idea to maintain white supremacy.) To be defensive in any way against accusations of racism is to exhibit white fragility.
See how non-falsifiable this all is? According to Robin DiAngelo, ideal white woke person will bend over and take a baseless accusation of racism, without vaseline, get up afterwards, and say thank you.
This is extremely anti-intellectual, to disregard context and merit for a claim. But intersectionality, which ultimately argues one’s ability to see truth is ultimately determined by their intersections of oppression according to Critical Theory (Cultural Marxism).
This was honestly my favorite chapter to review because her concept of racial stamina is entirely laughable. It is also a solution, to build up one’s racial stamina, that she advocates. And this nonsense is why we need to purge society of Critical Theory, because we are laughing at the idea of racial stamina now but not for much longer.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
