What do liberals have against white people? It seems as though every chance they get they are race baiting, stirring the pot, or falsely accusing our police officers of being prejudice against minorities. Much of the time, it goes far beyond simply “fighting racism in America.” More and more it appears that, to the liberals, being white is inherently wrong in some way. Look at the false issue of white privilege, which is now being taught by left wing professors in colleges all across the country. White privilege, as virtually any social justice warrior will tell you, describes advantages that white people have on a day-to-day basis that black people do not. It essentially accuses whites of doing something immoral or unjust simply because they’re white.
In an opinion column published in the Huffington Post, contributor Christine Michel Carter wrote about how shocked she was when she found out that she is partially white… you know, because being white is such a terrible thing.
After taking an ancestry test in celebration of Black History Month, Christine Carter, who had been told all her life that she was Native American and black, found out that she was actually 31.5% European. The results also showed that she was .6% East Asian and Native American, .6% unassigned, and 67.2% Sub-Saharan African. But evidently, being over two-thirds black wasn’t sufficient enough for Carter.
“Would I love to be 87% black? Yes!” Carter wrote in her article. “One may say I’m a disciple of the colloquialism ‘blacker the berry, sweeter the juice.’” She went on to say, “While I’m no Rachel Dolezal, I must accept the fact I do have white ancestors. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, but quite honestly, the road to acceptance will not be an easy one for me to travel.”
Why is it difficult to accept the fact that you are one-third white? Who cares? In the grand scheme of things, skin color is completely irrelevant. The fact that Christine Carter is one-third white won’t impact who she is as a person, nor will it impact her ability to live a happy, successful life. And therein lies yet another simplistic yet significant difference between conservatives and liberals – liberals are addicted to skin pigmentation and conservatives really aren’t.
I don’t believe it’s much of a stretch to say that race is almost always on the forefront of liberals’ minds. It’s as if everything they do and everything they talk about revolves around skin color. This is not only a strange way of living, it’s borderline psychotic.
Last year, I was invited to appear on a CNN segment to discuss my support for then presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The producer explained to me on the phone that I would be part of a panel with one other young person who supported Donald Trump, another who supported Hillary Clinton, and yet another who supported Bernie Sanders. After I expressed interest, I was told that they would get back to me to confirm my appearance.
After a few hours went by, I called back. The producer told me that they couldn’t confirm my appearance yet because they were waiting to see if they could get a black Cruz supporter instead. A bit irritated, I reluctantly said okay and hung up the phone. An entire day went by, only to have the CNN producer call me back and tell me the same thing again – that they still couldn’t confirm my appearance because they wanted more diversity on their panel. In the end, I told them I wasn’t interested anymore.
Why can’t we all just live our lives as Americans without thinking about race every second of every day? Why do some of us feel ashamed to be a particular ethnicity? I wish I had the answers, but I’m not sure I ever will.
