A writer for The Washington Post, Zack Linly, who is also a community organizer and activist (ahem), thinks black people should stop talking about racism with white people. This is real life.
Saying things like “There must be more to the story” (see Facts Don’t Matter: Marilyn Mosby Fabricates More Anti-Police Accusations…) is triggering. And no, this is not The Onion. Though one might argue WaPo might be competing in the same marketing arena as The Onion.
Other topic areas white people need to avoid based on these new rules? “Cops have a hard job” (see Charles Barkley Shows Cops Respect: ‘We as black people (also) need to do better….’) That’s triggering too. Don’t say it.
So what ARE the new rules for you racist white people? Glad you asked. Let’s go through them together. Because unity.
“No more arguing with disingenuous folks who have nothing to lose…”
We’ve spelled it out for white America a hundred different ways. That their beloved police forces are full of officers who are simply more volatile, fearful and prone to harassment and abuse of power when dealing with us — and it’s costing us our lives. We have laid out all the statistics and all of our millions of personal testimonies. We’ve made it clear that…the subject of police brutality… is an issue as old as our involuntary occupation of this country. With all of this information readily available and reiterated constantly, it’s beyond ridiculous that the simple words “black lives matter” require any added explanation at all. And yet, here we are coming up with a dozen analogies trying to, even further, simplify it.
So, the “national conversation on races” liberals always say we need to have? Like that failed Starbucks campaign about wanting to talk about race with your barista? That’s a no? Dang. Just when I was gearing up to get my PSL and talk to random strangers about race, Zack Linly here bursts my bubble. Because guys like Zack don’t need us “white people” to be a part of the racial conversation. Why? Because we’re disingenuous. Apparently we’re also all the same. That’s the assumption the writer of the article is making, yes? All white people are the same?
Sorry, but isn’t that “racism” to assume all people of a certain race think the same way, act the same way, like the same things? That’s weird, because that’s the second post today where I’ve had to call this crap out. Read also CA State University Now Segregating Black Students… to Prevent Racism?
Like the CA State University story, I’m noticing an alarming trend. The more we seem to talk about “racism” the more divided we become. Perhaps Martin Luther King Jr. was onto something when he had the dream and all. Where people were judged not by their skin color, but rather the content of their character. Yet lately it seems all leftist want to talk about? Skin color.
If we want to be in a post-racial society, maybe we should start acting like it. Put a cork in the “let’s talk about race,” or like this story, “let’s only talk about race with certain races,” and move on to more important things. Character, merit, ambitions, charitable acts toward one another. Yes?
For those of you who said “no,” here’s a video about cops and facts. Trigger-warning: facts are racist.
