[Ed. – The Left’s obsession with race and with hurling the increasingly meaningless charges of ‘racism’ takes many forms.]
For years, people have told me to stop talking about race and ethnicity. That sort of dialogue, they warn, only divides Americans.
Little did I know the real reason they wanted me to pipe down was so I could hear them drone on about that very same topic — on their terms.
Gaslighted by immigration and “the Squad,” folks on Fox News and right-wing radio are once again obsessed with race talk. Some of the loudest voices — Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin etc. — are content to talk only to people who look like them. If you feel disempowered because, instead of 100% of the pie, you now have to make do with 99%, you have one heck of a support group in conservative media.
Yet, some readers still urge me to back off racial issues.
