Certain sorts and their media shills are once again trotting out their shibboleth of President Trump’s racist rhetoric. This time it’s over our President’s calling out of “The Squad” and their visceral and vocal hatred of America and Americans.
So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
Of course, as most of us know, the only “reason” that President Trump’s rhetoric is considered racist by some is that they consider any White calling out the bad behavior of any non-White to be racist. Indeed, the only exception to this is that the same sorts believe that it is required to call out non-Whites in any circumstance when and where they might show an insufficient hatred towards Whites and America.
Oh yeah! This fine Black babe is sweetly triggering offense among Blacktivists and their White Enablers. Certain sorts would lose their ever-hating minds upon seeing a Black woman enjoying and Oreo cookie sundae.
Of course, certain sorts are pathologically prone to “finding” cause for offense in almost anything that isn’t clearly, purely, and stridently anti-normative and hateful.
Felix Valiente’s photo-shoot for last October’s issue of Vogue Spain featuring the sensual and beautiful Cindy Bruna and Misha Japanwala’s “sculptural garments” was probably meaningful in that it was probably meant to convey some meaning and message, most likely one suitable to various SJWs and race-baiting sorts. I just don’t care, neither about the intended meaning nor the meaning that others will read into it.
Cindy Bruna is to me a very beautiful woman and Mr. Valiente’s portrayal of her more than showcases her charms. That’s what care about, not any deeper and/or possibly offensive meaning that might be there.
A Probably Meaningful Difference
And such lack of caring is possibly an exemplar of one the most glaring fundamental differences between the normative American majority and the various Liberal and Progressive SJWs. People like me, i.e., normal Americans in this context, can look at something like this and not be offended, outraged, or otherwise bothered by it. We can simply set that aside and enjoy what is good about it. Those Liberal and Progressive SJWs and all the Millennials who’ve bought into their dogma? They can’t do that.
As a lot of people already know, CNN’s “Legal Analyst,” Areva Martin recently accused David Webb of being a racist or, at least very much not “woke” while being interviewed on his Sirius XM radio show, “Patriot” while discussing race, job qualifications, and applying for jobs .
I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one,” Webb, a host on Fox Nation, told Martin in the interview. “I never considered my color the issue; I considered my qualifications the issue.”
To which Martin, a civil rights attorney who co-hosts the syndicated talk show “Face the Truth,” responded: “Well, David, that’s a whole other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”
“How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Webb asked.
“David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege. This whole long conversation, I don’t have time to get into — ”
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” Webb interrupted. “I’m Black.”
OK! Honestly, that’s just about as funny as things can get. Some professional race-baiting grifter – Martin’s a “Civil Rights” attorney – getting hoist on her own hate-fueled petard is hilarious and always will be so to me. Schadenfreude, it’s real.
Petards Mean Sappers
Funny or not though, Martin’s mistake highlights some of racial problems and problem causers inside America’s borders. We’ve too many like Martin who make a career out of racism and who see everything through the lens of “oppression,” and who – displaying a level hypocrisy well past the border of the absurd – make ignorance- and envy-fueled assumptions about people, e.g., assuming Mr. Webb being White because his opinion was contrary to “Being Black.”
And, of course, to people like Areva Martin and those, such as CNN, who pander to- and enable her sort, “White” equals “Bad.” “White” equals the “Oppressors,” either those seen as active so or merely those who have “benefited” from “Whiteness.”
But Webb Is White
Remember race is a social construct with little to no scientific significance outside of the modern pseudo-sciences of psychology and sociology. Therefor, Mr. Webb’s “Whiteness” or “Blackness” is also just a social construct and social constructs are determined by opinion and bias less than by a specific set of empirical facts
And yes, I make no bones about considering psychology and sociology to be pseudo-sciences. They’re both more of an art than a science and both are plagued by extreme biases.
And, as Mr. Webb is not maintaining the Black Narrative or behaving in a “Black Enough” manner, he’s essentially White. This is because the cultural gatekeepers of Blackness view that as the sin of Respectability Politics, something that they don’t willing tolerate.
Respectability politics is, at its root, the inability to look into the cold dark void of history. For if black people are — as I maintain — no part of the problem, if the problem truly is 100 percent explained by white supremacy, then we are presented with a set of unfortunate facts about our home.— Ta-Nehisi Coates “Charles Barkley and the Plague of ‘Unintelligent’ Blacks”
And yeah, the Black Enough Blacks and those that make their living off of that particular narrative have names for such people: Uncle Tom, Oreo, Sell-Out, Race Traitor, Graham Cracker, and House Nigger to name the most common ones. But they all mean White or too close in culture and thought to being White.
So, while in one sense, Marin was stupidly and ignorantly wrong, in other ways – the ways that matter to her and her people – she was right.
