Whites: You Are, And Ever Shall Be, Racists! September 20, 2017

I’ve said the same thing before, but it’s becoming more true than ever: if I’m doomed to be a racist no matter what I do, say, or believe, why should I care about racism? Enter Ms. Ashleigh Shackelford to hammer the point home:

However, activist Ashleigh Shackelford does us all a favor by showing us just how far we are from ever seeing racial harmony.

**video insert wherein Ms. Shackelford carefully explains that “All White People are Racist”**

Ah, the old “all white people are racist” canard. We haven’t enjoyed this one in a while, now have we?

However, Shackelford takes it a step further by saying, “You’re always going to be racists, actually.”

Wow, really? I’m always going to be racist? Then perhaps she can tell us just why we should even bother worrying about racial equality if we’re never going to be anything but racist?

Despite Ms. Shackelford and her ilk’s unrelenting attempts to drive us into the arms of genuine racists, the fact remains that we do care about racism. We believe that all people should have equal rights and equal opportunities, that people should “…not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character,” and that actual racism should be extinguished from our country and hopefully the world.

But Ms. Shackelford’s special brand of racism isn’t going to get us there.

It’s nice to know that she’s able to read my heart and mind.
I wish I had that super power, it’d be handy in business negotiations.

I saw an article the other day that was apparently about how “whiteness” does not actually exist. And then there was the one Ace linked about how straight black men are benefiting from whiteness or something. Typical Jacobin move – the circle of the sufficiently pure is ever-decreasing.
