So, are all racists white?
In ideology, guilt can be determined by race. In objective reality it cannot. A man’s race does not make him innocent. His race does not miraculously whitewash the past or reverse the facts.
I was prompted to write this post by the comment of a woman I heard on TV today. I don’t know her name. “Jane Doe” will do. “Most people think black people can’t be racist”, Jane Doe said. She was echoing – with approval – a comment by Gayle King on CBS This Morning, August 12, 2019.
Yep, according to the Left, a colored man absolutely cannot be racist. He can scream racist obscenities while hurling hard objects at whites in cars (I’ve seen this happen IRL) but his race makes him innocent of racism.
The illogic can be expressed thus: “He did do that but he did not do that. Although he did do that, only whites can be guilty of doing that and he is not white.”
The Left says no-one can be racist unless they are “privileged”. Whites are privileged. POC are not. Therefore whites are racist and POC are not. This is an immutable truth as a matter of race – and the facts be damned.
It’s like saying POC can’t murder a white because the victim is privileged. If the POC hurling hard objects at the white man kill him because they want his car, or because he’s white, or for any other reason whatsoever, it’s not murder. The killing lacks a victim because he’s white. Essentially, victimless killing does not cause loss. Death being loss of life, there ain’t been no death neither. When POC kills whitey, there ain’t been no killing at all.
When POC are racist, there ain’t been no racism at all.
The leftist mindset is that of a simpleton standing in a morgue, pointing at the corpses of murder victims and declaring, “The black one is dead but the white one is not ‘dead’ dead.”
Anti-white racism, encouraged by the leftist Establishment, is rampant right now. In the TV program I referred to earlier, Jane Doe’s comment prompted an outburst from a black man in the studio. “You can’t change them [whites]! They will always be racist! All we can do is get rid of them!”
The leftist Establishment – the whole rotten lot of it – is sick to the bone and the MSM is the cancer at the marrow. IMHO Feminism, with its hatred of the Patriarchy (the straight white male) is the carcinogen that promoted the racism.
Ideologues love absolutes, and they’ve managed to wrap racism in the most oppressive of circumscriptions, that all racists are white. If they had said “all murderers are white” we’d be laughing them out of town. “All racists are white” is equally absurd. It’s downright dumb as donkey drops. The Left is an ass.
