If Anti-racists are Still Racist, then Why Not Relax and be Comfortable Being a “Racist”? By James Reed
So, it now comes down to all White people being racist. No matter what one does, one is tarred. Isn’t this a bit like sexuality? Thus, since it is part of my nature to be “racist,” why should I not be comfortable with this, and just accept myself, just like different sexualities, in fact, anything is accepted, and celebrated now?
“The left has come up with a new term known as “anti-racist” that it is using to shame those who are already not racist but are not necessarily involved in “anti-racism” activism. And the Merriam-Webster dictionary is going “woke” by crystallizing this newfound concept of anti-racism with an actual definition.
According to reports, Merriam-Webster now defines “color blindness” – meaning a person who does not see skin color and who treats everyone equally – as “racist” because it fails to actively affirm the concept of “anti-racism” through activism.
If you are someone who treats others as yourself, in other words, you are a “racist” because you must also affirm the tenets of the religion of “anti-racism.” According to Merriam-Webster, color blindness is “racism” and must be fought with more anti-racist activism.
“While [color blindness] can be used with positive connotations of freedom from racial prejudice, it often suggests a failure or refusal to acknowledge or address the many racial inequities that exist in society, or to acknowledge important aspects of racial identity,” the dictionary source now claims.
The examples used by Merriam-Webster are even worse, stating that true equality is not achieved by treating people equally, but rather by treating non-white people as better than white people.
“What I learned was that white parents often refrain from speaking with their children about race, racism and racial inequality,” reads a quote from someone named Megan R. Underhill that is included in the new Merriam-Webster dictionary definition for color blindness.
“If racial discussions do occur they are characterized by a colorblind rhetoric.”
This is unacceptable, according to Underhill, who believes that all white people should shame themselves and their children for not constantly talking about black and brown people as if they are perpetual victims of “systemic racism” and other such nonsense.
People who don’t embrace “anti-racism” wokeness are less “evolved” than others, says Cambridge Dictionary
Dictionary.com currently does not have a “woke” definition like this for the word “colorblind.” The Cambridge Dictionary, however, does, explaining that one is less “evolved” than others if he is simply “colorblind” as opposed to “anti-racist.”
“As others have noted, any close scrutiny shows that the colorblind millennial is less evolved than we like to believe,” reads an example quote in the Cambridge Dictionary about colorblind people.
“Being truly colorblind would mean living in a world without any color,” reads another example also included from NPR.
Last summer, Merriam-Webster changed the definition of “racism” as well, redefining the word to exclude all black and brown people.
Only white people can be “racist,” according to Merriam-Webster, because black and brown people supposedly do not hold the “power” necessary to actually be racist. Black thugs can beat up elderly Asian women while calling them racial slurs, for instance, and still not be a “racist” because that black man is merely reacting to systemic racism caused by whites.
This twisted redefinition of the word “racism” is just another attempt by anti-white racists to marginalize people with light skin and make them perpetual aggressors. Everything white people do is now “racist,” including just having fair skin.
“When you control the language and vocabulary, you can control the thoughts that people are able to conceive and articulate,” wrote one commenter at The Right Scoop.
“Just wait until people start being accused of racism if they haven’t dated a person of another [race],” wrote another. “It’s happened to me already.”
Others pointed out that black people commit a disproportionately higher number of crimes compared to people of all other colors, yet this is almost never taken into consideration when talking about “systemic racism.””
- Just. Don’t. Care. Anymore.
“This idea that we are all each other’s shepherds, that we are all responsible for the happiness of all humankind, is paralyzing nonsense. At best, it keeps men busy arguing about things over which they have almost no control. At worst it makes men vulnerable to all sorts of manipulation by people who have already decided that they are disposable rubes — like naive retirees giving away their savings to charity grifters or high-living evangelists. Men end up giving away everything worth having to people who are ideologically incapable of even acknowledging their sacrifice.
I’m not encouraging people to stop caring about anyone, I’m encouraging them to stop trying to care about everyone. If you say you love everyone, you don’t really love anyone. Love is a choice, a discriminatory act.
If you don’t pick your team — if you aren’t willing to draw a line between who you care about and who you don’t, between “us” and “them” — then you’ll be like all of these other suckers who care about whoever and whatever they click on every morning.
Care passionately, but discriminately.
And if you don’t really care, then say it.
“I don’t care.”
It’s simple, but powerful.
It’s liberating, but also dangerous and heretical.
The idea that we are all in this together and are working in good faith to solve the world’s problems is an illusion that traps us in a crisscrossed, impenetrable web of synthetic yarn. If you pull that fuzzy pink string — that completely unwarranted assumption of universal good will — civil society collapses into a Hobbesian war of all against all where no one trusts anyone.
When, free from our attachments to everyone, everywhere, we find ourselves adrift in a staggering, confused mass of drooling and covetous humanity, we can make sense of it all and find our bearings only when we form discriminatory alliances and new tribes built on trust, common interests and mutual admiration — instead of being bound by the great lie of love for all neighbors.”
Not our folk; not our problem!
