The article is named “37 Things White People Need To Stop Ruining In 2018”. Among the things the article claim that white men ruin is that 58% of whites voted for Donald Trump for president. BuzzFeed writer Patrice Peck also lists whites who win Oscars and Grammys and displace people of color. Other things white men have ruined is marijuana joints, the Hit Dem Folks Dance, the theme song from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,”. Also makeup, macaroni and cheese and people of color’s childhoods.
Some in the media are pointing out the article as being racist and they say if the same article was written about blacks, the reactions would be much different.
Conservative commentator Britt McHenry told Fox News,”This article isn’t funny, it’s racist—plain and simple. If a similar piece was written about any other ethnicity, the journalist would be fired on the spot. It undoubtedly would spark public outrage, and rightfully so.”
Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor agreed, saying, “The easy test of this is try imagining a bigoted piece of filth like this being written about any other group. Picture the ‘37 Things Black People Need To Stop Ruining In 2018’ headline and then wait for Twitter to shut down your account.”
He added that “openly liberal media have finally outed themselves.” Left-leaning media members believe racism and sexism is OK, along as white males with conservative values are the target.
Media watchdog Clay Travis tweeted
“If this is written about any other race every advertiser bails on company & a ton of people are fired.”
The bigger problem is that whenever anyone writes such a racist screed, death threats and promises of violence or actual violence ensues. Since President Trump’s election, we have seen plenty of examples of that.
George Ciccariello-Maher, a politics and global studies professor at Drexel University stirred up such sentiments when he said all he wanted for Christmas was white genocide. Ciccariella-Maher resigned his teaching job at Drexel over that posting and another one that said that “trumpism” was responsible for the Las Vegas shooting that left 58 dead and hundreds more wounded.
Funny how the SJWs never complain about racism aimed at whites.
