Ny post is all I needed to see to dismiss the article. Murdoch owned newspaper meant to distribute propaganda to the gullible.

well obviously your methodology is wrong then.


How Norway Made the World Whiter (NorWhite)


Funded by the Research Council of Norway (Researcher Project for Scientific Renewal 2023 - 2028)

Principal Investigator: Associate Professor Ingrid Halland

Host institution: The University of Bergen


The research project ʻHow Norway Made the World Whiterʼ (NorWhite) studies a Norwegian innovation; the white pigment titanium dioxide in a historical, aesthetic, and critical lens—focusing on how the pigment transformed surfaces in art, architecture, and design. The primary research question is: What are the cultural and aesthetic changes instigated by titanium white and TiO2 surfaces – and how can both the material in itself and these changes be conceptualized and made visible? NorWhite connects challenging topics - whiteness, technological innovation, and mass-exploitation of natural resources - in a single case study. The project will do this through an interdisciplinary research design grounded in an original and creative humanities approach that merges art history and artistic research.





"Whiteness is one of today’s key societal and political concerns. Within and beyond academia worldwide, actions of revolt and regret seek to cope with our racial past. In the pivotal works in whiteness studies within art and architecture history, whiteness is understood as cultural and visual structures of privilege. The new research project ‘How Norway Made the World Whiter’ (NorWhite) funded by the Research Council of Norway (12 million NOK), addresses a distinctively different battleground for politics of whiteness in art and architecture. Two core premises underpin the project: Whiteness is not only a cultural and societal condition tied to skin colour, privileges, and systematic exclusion, but materialise everywhere around us. Second, one cannot understand this materialisation without understanding the societal, technological and aesthetic conditions of the colour itself."

Blacks taking over Norweigian Academia
Salt Bae Cooking GIF by Demic

there is no way any blacks are involved with this... I hope not... for some reason this kind of extreme sjw thing is almost always coming from white people... but then there is a small minority of extreme sjw blacks out there.... it's very common that blacks support things like blm, for example.... but "study to find out if white paint is racist"... it's got to be white people behind this
