Imagine that. If that were an actual poll with those results, we'd be hearing screams of racism from coast to coast. The outrage would be beyond the coasts actually. From the UN to the Vatican, outrage would be the song of the day. And rightly so. Imagine saying you don't know if it's OK to be of a particular skin color.
Yet that's exactly the results of a poll that asked if it's OK to be white. Just the question itself shows the deep delve of racism in our country. That the Anti-Defamation league has denounced the statement 'it's OK to be white' as hate speech shows there's never forgetting the lessons of history, and then there's forgetting the lessons of history we're not supposed to forget.
But in the poll - take polls for what they're worth - 47% of blacks questioned said it is not OK to be white, or they weren't sure if it is OK to be white. For my money, if you're not sure if it's OK to have a certain color then, yes Virginia, you're a racist.
Yet when once celebrated Dilbert creator Scott Adams reacted to this by labeling those blacks who have issue with the existence of white people as a hate group, and furthermore stating that moving away from blacks who don't think it's OK to have your skin color is the logical thing to do, papers across the nation dropped his comic strip like a hot potato. No mention that almost half of blacks surveyed weren't sure if it's OK to be white. Apparently the Anti-Defamation league thinks there's a problem with being white, so it must be fine*.
The only problem mentioned is that Scott Adams pointed out the logical response of logical people who find out their existence is not approved of. I'm not saying Adams was smart for what he said or how he said it. After all, we live in the 21st Century, a cool generation or so after we ceased being a free country according to liberal definitions (in case you missed the memo). And it might not have been the best way to react to this racist finding. After all, his was simply a 'then it's us vs. you buster' response. That is, of course, the goal here. Divide and conquer. That's how you get a free country to give it up: Make it about us vs. them, with the assurance it will only be them who loses all the nifty freedoms, prosperity and blessings.
Nonetheless, the fact that almost all outlets glossed over and ignored the donkey in the living room about blacks increasingly disliking the existence of whites is more than telling. Like so many things liberalism once condemned, race hate and discrimination against the wrong ethnicity are now all the rage. Add that to free speech, judgementalism, religious tolerance, respecting other opinions, equality and group identity, in case you're keeping track.
Bonus observation: One of my sons has said that with each passing day, it becomes easier to sympathize with the German people in the 1930s. After all, look at what people are willing to accept, and how few are prepared to speak out.
*Note the trend. Remember when the Left declared the statement 'All Lives Matter' to be racist motivated? See how that works? Now we're told that saying 'It's OK to be White' is a racist chant. You do know there will be more such declarations over the next few years, don't you? Examples of just which people groups are not to be called OK. Again, great job Anti-Defamation league for becoming everything you say you're against.
