[Ed. – The author makes a strong case here. The Left’s definition of ‘racism’ no longer comports with the dictionary definition. They view it, as he notes, as support for privilege and systems of oppression, both of which are in the minds of the accuser.]
The blatant racial bigotry of the left must be called out. It is no longer an esoteric academic debate; it is a crisis that threatens to tear the country apart.
Take this tweet from Farnaz Fassihi, a journalist at the New York Times, in reaction to a letter calling for an end to cancel culture.
"The Letter" was shaped/spearheaded from conversations by
four privileged white men. Apparently they felt entitled to really weigh in on racism, diversity & inclusion.
That says it all.https://t.co/gGxdq5kmyN

Allow me to be blunt. This tweet is patently, obviously and indisputably racist. The content of the letter is irrelevant to Fassihi. All she needs to know is the color of the skin of the people who spearheaded it to know that she not only disagrees with it, but must call it out. Refusing to engage with someone’s ideas because of their skin color is racist. All the post-modern and critical race theory mumbo jumbo in the world cannot change that basic fact.
