Two Very Dumb “Everything is Racist” Stories From This Week
The dust has hardly settled from the Covington Catholic kids/Fake Vietnam Indian story, but it’s already clear that pundits in the media have no intention of reeling it in when it comes to wild accusations of racism. Maybe it’s not even their fault anymore. They’ve been trained to seek and find racism anywhere and everywhere they can find it, which leads them to come up with the most absurd stories you can imagine in an attempt to tell their readers: Whitey Is Bad!
The first such story comes from Azcentral.com, where opinion contributor Rashaad Thomas talks about how “offended” he was to walk into a Phoenix restaurant and see a picture of coal miners on the wall:
A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view the photographs on the wall.
Then a photograph caught my attention.
Friends said, “It’s coal miners at a pub after work.” It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces. I asked a Latinx and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work. Then they stepped back, frowned and said it’s men in blackface.
I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before.
New rule of thumb: Whenever a writer or speaker uses the word “Latinx” to describe a Hispanic person, you can be certain that they’re about to say something extremely stupid.
As if that piece isn’t enough to make you want to drive a railroad spike through your eye, there’s this piece of nonsense from The Daily Beast. So upset are liberals about former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’s presidential ambitions that they are going to extraordinary lengths to defame him and shame him out of his decision.
Read for yourself:
Starbucks, which sold music alongside coffee from 1994 to 2015, had, what could only be described as, a flat and white selection of tunes to offer.
Over 21 years, Starbucks released and sold 262 records using Discogs.com. A good percentage of these were compilations like “Music for Little Hipsters,” or “British Folk.” The single-artist albums, though, are overwhelmingly from white musicians, according to a review by The Daily Beast. The only living black artists we could find among the 262 Starbucks releases were Herbie Hancock, Mary J. Blige, Sly & the Family Stone, Al Green, Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo, and jazz trio Soulive. Blige is the youngest among those; she’s 48 years old.
We’re sure there are many well-justified reasons to believe that Schultz would make a poor president, but are we really supposed to think less of him because Starbucks sold predominately “white” music for ten years? Who is this article for? Who CARES?
And we’re not even going to get into the assault on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, which the media is already itching to turn into some kind of Trump-inspired hate crime. It’s unclear as of Wednesday exactly what happened to Smollett, but we’re sure that whatever it was, it will be used by these race-baiting leftists to once again make sure everyone knows that white people are the world’s great evil.
Indeed, that seems to be the only point they care to make anymore.
