In an absurd, venom-laced editorial in the far-left, Hillary endorsing Arizona Republic newspaper, editorialist Elvia Diaz climbs on her reliable racism charger, ramming her spurs into its sides to rev it up. Every societal ill takes root in “institutional racism,” according to the flawed tactics that have driven the newspaper off the cliff. There is no reason for any minority failing other than the majority conspiring against them.
As violent rioters torch, loot and destroy businesses, many already hit hard by the pandemic shutdown, Dias contends, “Telling folks to protest civilly isn’t going to cut it.” Minnesota resident George Floyd, arrested for attempting to pay for merchandise with a counterfeit $20 bill, was brutally killed by a Minneapolis police officer, who has been arrested and criminally charged. And George Floyd? He has become an incidental memory to the marauding vandals overtaking American cities.
In fact, the “institutional racism” Diaz decries is more often used against white males than any other group. (These numbers are from 2016, and no doubt have escalated.) Affirmative action dictates are imposed from college admissions to workplace personnel departments. Even the newspaper that employs Dias also brags about its own disreputable hiring policies based not on ability but the applicants DNA, over which they have no control, but which has paramount appeal to the left.
Athletes who earn $millions and are revered and cheered by white fans, grouse about racism, though minorities dominate the sports of football and basketball. Yet star quarterback Colin Kaepernick, now described as a civil rights activist, “took a knee” rather than stand for the nation anthem. His legal settlement with the NFL was reported to be between $60 to $80 million.
America, unlike any other nation, fought a bloody internecine war beginning in 1861 to rid itself of the reprehensible practice of slavery. Interracial marriage has been on the rise, and obviously has increased since this 2013 Pew survey was released reflecting the trends from 2019 – 2000. Those familial relationships were forged through bonding and love, not “institutional racism.”
Yet Google, the left-wing agendized search engine, affixes this message to its homepage today, “We stand in support of racial equality, and all those who search for it.” Apolitical Bing is the site rational people — of all races — should use.
