A writer for The Root, Damon Young, who is also a columnist for The New York Times, argued the killing of eight people in Atlanta this week, including six Asians, was due to the pandemic of whiteness, calling whiteness “a pandemic.”
Imagine if the races were turned and a writer for The New York Times called blackness a pandemic. People would have a meltdown. But reverse discrimination against people based on the color of their skin apparently doesn’t seem to matter to the left.
But how can skin color be a pandemic? Isn’t a pandemic something people catch, like the current COVID-19 virus? If you’re a progressive, you apparently get to make your own rules.
It doesn’t even seem to matter that the 21-year-old shooter specifically stated his motives for the shooting were not race-based but sexual in nature. Though horrific, skin color wasn’t the problem.
The solution to racism is not labeling one another’s skin tones a pandemic, either. To make progress, maybe we can begin by at least not referring to an ethnic group’s external characteristics with the same term used to describe the coronavirus.
If you haven’t watched a Ben Shapiro video before, you’re in for a treat. He’s one of the smartest conservative voices out there right now and he RIPS this article and author apart from head to toe.
