As in, what he said that was racist. McDonald's CEO Chris Kempczinksi commented on two of the many murders among young people in Chicago:
So, what was racist? The assumption that parents, who have recently been told they could be terrorists or that they in fact can't have say in their kids' educations, are therefore responsible for something? I'm not seeing it. Perhaps he shouldn't have spoken to these two particular cases without knowing the details. But racist? By the way, clearly he was right in saying this is something you're not allowed to do, however many thousands of America's youth die in the meantime.
Though I think it's safe to say that as a society, we've been grooming parents to fail their kids for many generations. Ever since we decided Dr. Benjamin Spock was right to tell us everything we ever knew about raising kids was wrong.
Seventy years later, and suicide is now one of the leading causes of death for children as young as ten years old. We have debates about arming teachers because of the penchant for mass murdering fellow students that has arisen in the last several decades. Drug use and dependency among young Americans is at all time highs, along with suicide rates.
It's almost like we shouldn't have listened to a sawdust for brains ideologue and should have trusted in some ages old wisdom when it comes to things like parenting, morality, personal responsibility and being mature adults. Heck, it might even be that we abandoned God and his revealed wisdom for how to act as human beings.
Nah, that would be like saying we've been wrong all these years. And there's no end to the youth of America we're willing to let die rather than admit to such a thing.
