They’re Not Even Hiding the White Self-Loathing Anymore
So apparently there’s something called the “Un-Fair Campaign,” whose entire purpose seems to be to point out how horribly unfair it is to be white. Their slogan is “It’s hard to see racism when you’re white,” and the website asserts that “Racism is an issue that we don’t like talking about.” Which is funny, because for something we ostensibly don’t like talking about it, we spend a lot of time talking about it. I’d say we’re downright obsessed about it.
We see racism everywhere. Accurately transcribing the President’s pandering dialect is racist. Using the word “break” is racist. So is niggardly. Referencing black holes is racist. Yellow metro lines are also racist against Asians. We’ve had “a national conversation about race” in 1997 and again in 2008. And its impossible not to repeatedly hear all about racism at any American University, where courses for various ethnic group “studies” are also commonplace.
Promoting gun ownership as self protection after natural disasters is racist. In fact, the entire second amendment is racist, as is the NRA. Going to a party while a hurricane hits anywhere else in the US is racist. Highlighting the President’s angry outbursts is racist, as is giving a speech to the NAACP. Hell, we can’t even celebrate Independence Day (pardon me, I mean the “Fourth of You Lie“) without having one of those non-existent conversations about race.
Nevertheless, the folks at the “Un-Fair Campaign” think white people don’t yet feel sufficiently shitty for things that happened before they were born (Hat-tip: National Review):
Is there racism in America? Absolutely. But it’s not a one way street. Racists come in all shapes and colors and hate is directed in all directions, even at whites. But for all the “conversations” we’ve had about race, such frank admissions are rarely made. Instead we get self-loathing and liberal white guilt bombarding us with a litany of white abuses.
If any of these folks bothered to look at modern law and policy, they might notice that race-based favoritism and preferences benefit almost every other group except for white (males). Such policies may be justified in some cases, and not in others, but it’s rather absurd to harp on about how “society was made for us,” meaning whites, when the law today explicitly discriminates on behalf of every group other than whites. Hard to see racism when you’re white, indeed.
