Slate writer: You’re ‘racist’ if you’re attracted to someone of the same race

Slate’s Reihan Salam wants you to know: You’re a “racist” if you’re attracted to people who look like you. The great thing about his piece is that if that conclusion bothers you, reading past the headline is unnecessary. It’s titled: ‘Is It Racist to Date Only People of Your Own Race? Yes.’

Take OkCupid, for example —  the dating service run by hypocritical CEO Sam Yagan, who recently engaged in character assassination because Brendan Eich once donated to an anti-gay marriage bill … even though he donated to a staunchly anti-gay marriage politician. The site asks a number of questions to figure out what type of person you’re physically attracted to. To race-obsessed Slate writers, that makes those **cough**white people**cough** who are attracted to a mate who looks like them “racist.”

From Slate:

One of OkCupid’s questions reads as follows: “Would you strongly prefer to go out with someone of your own skin color/racial background?” I was struck by the not inconsiderable number of people who answered “yes”—including some people I know “in real life,” many of whom are hilariously self-righteous about their enlightened political views.

Keep in mind that OkCupid users can skip a question with ease. The people who answered this question had every opportunity to pass it by. What I found surprising about the fact that a fair number of people answered that they would indeed strongly prefer to go out with someone of their own skin color/racial background was not that this phenomenon exists in the world. …

In The American Non-Dilemma, Nancy DiTomaso argues that persistent racial inequality in the United States is not solely or even primarily a reflection of racism and discrimination. Rather, it reflects the fact that whites tend to help other whites without ever discriminating against or behaving cruelly toward blacks and other nonwhites. As long as whites tend to dominate prestigious occupations, and as long as they control access to valuable social resources like access to good schools, the fact that whites, like all people, will do more to help family, friends, and acquaintances than strangers will tend to entrench racial inequality, provided that white people choose to associate primarily with other whites.

To the liberal mind, white people who do not discriminate towards minorities — who do not think cruel thoughts about them at all — are still “racist” if the color that they find most attractive is what they see when they look in the mirror. To liberals like Suey Park, it doesn’t matter what’s going on in a white person’s mind — their skin has determined their fate: “racist.”

To the liberal mind, it is “racist” to help your family, friends and acquaintances if you are white because white people “dominate prestigious occupations.”

Yes, even though the writer acknowledges that “all people” help those who are in their immediate circle of friends and family, we must constantly monitor  non-discriminatory white people because they “control access to valuable social resources.”

What is more likely holding back black people in Chicago: white Americans who are really nice — who just so happen to be attracted to someone who looks like them — or the fact that blacks are slaughtering each other in the streets like something you’d find in the Middle East?

Time magazine reports — welcome to ‘Chiraq’:

At least nine people were killed and at least 36 wounded in Chicago over the Easter weekend, prompting a newly formed federal unit to step in to help tackle the city’s pervasive culture of gun violence.

In a Monday statement, a prosecutorial unit called the Violent Crimes section said it will put its full focus on how to use federal statutes to combat Chicago’s endemic gang and gun problem, giving the city its nickname “Chiraq.” The shootings over the weekend brought the total number of suspected homicide this year to 90, two less than during the same period last year.

These record numbers come despite the fact that it appears the city is finding creative ways to lower it’s murder rate. Need to get rid of crime? Don’t call it crime. Genius!

From Chicago magazine:

Toxicology tests showed she had heroin and alcohol in her system, but not enough to kill her. All signs pointed to foul play. According to the young woman’s mother, who had filed a missing-person report, the police had no doubt. “When this detective came to my house, he said, ‘We found your daughter. . . . Your daughter has been murdered,’ ” Alice Groves recalls. “He told me they’re going to get the one that did it.”

On October 28, a pathologist ruled the death of Tiara Groves a homicide by “unspecified means.” This rare ruling means yes, somebody had killed Groves, but the pathologist couldn’t pinpoint the exact cause of death.

Given the finding of homicide—and the corroborating evidence at the crime scene—the Chicago Police Department should have counted Groves’s death as a murder. And it did.

On a deeper level, perhaps Slate’s Reihan Salam is saying that if only more of Chicago’s white population would date black people, they could save black people from themselves. Mr. Salam, why do you have such a low opinion of Chicago’s black population? Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

According to Slate’s Reihan Salam, if you’re a white guy who was turned off to Asians because you associate them with the likes of Suey “only white people can be racist” Park, you are (ta-da!) racist. See how that works?

Remember: In Suey Park's world, only white people can be racist. Have fun trying to build a movement on that line, Ms. Park.
Remember: In Suey Park’s world, only white people can be racist. Have fun trying to build a movement on that line, Ms. Park.

More from Ms. Park:

“[My work] is but one step in a plan to take down white, hetero, patriarchal, corporate America. … Can you make a pinky promise to keep my radical agenda in your article?”

As a member of white, hetero corporate America, I exhausted my patience with people like Reihan Salam and Suey Park long ago. The more that they scream “racist!” the more I laugh at them. The more they torture logic to turn nice law-abiding white people into “racists” — while cities like Chicago turn into “Chiraq” — the more I mock them.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get to my job, which makes Slate’s Reihan Salam sad. He apparently wishes I was fired and replaced with a person of color because my continued employment perpetuates racism. I was thinking about willingly giving it up the other day to a guy from Chicago, but I heard he was shot and killed over Easter. Sad. I guess I’ll keep my job for awhile longer.

 

Liberal Joel Stein Can’t Resist Masturbation Like He Can’t Resist Making fun of Indians.

Liberal Joel Stein needs to mix his love for masturbation and sad sack Indian jokes into the most insulting Time magazine article of all time. Then, when Kal Penn's head explodes and liberals yawn, the double-standard will be on even brighter display for everyone to see.

Do you remember when liberal Joel Stein just couldn’t help himself because something inside urged him to write My Own Private India for Time magazine? I do. In fact, it was rather fun for me to watch his liberal ally, Kal Penn, blow a gasket over gems like this:

My town is totally unfamiliar to me. The Pizza Hut where my busboy friends stole pies for our drunken parties is now an Indian sweets shop with a completely inappropriate roof. The A&P I shoplifted from is now an Indian grocery…

Eventually, there were enough Indians in Edison to change the culture. At which point my townsfolk started calling the new Edisonians “dot heads.” One kid I knew in high school drove down an Indian-dense street yelling for its residents to “go home to India.” In retrospect, I question just how good our schools were if “dot heads” was the best racist insult we could come up with for a group of people whose gods have multiple arms and an elephant nose.

Joel Stein is back, and once again he wants everyone to know just how far his lack of self-control reaches, which appears to somewhere near the bottom of his jeans pockets:

Our pornified, DIY sex culture leads to husbands who would rather go to their man-cave for an hour than attempt to negotiate intimacy with their wives—especially because many of those wives aren’t Asian…

After giving it a lot of thought, I don’t think I’m going to stop masturbating. I mean, I will while I’m typing this column, but that’s about it. And I don’t think Christine O’Donnell should be a senator even of a completely made-up state like Delaware. But she and the rest of the far-right movement do play an important role in my life. If we listen to them instead of reflexively mocking them—which is very difficult to do, especially when they dabble in witchcraft—they can force us to consider the downside of progress. By which I mean lots and lots of porn.

But there is another kind of progress: It’s undeniably better for kids not to grow up ashamed of their bodies and sexual desires, which led some of them to suicide, self-flagellation, and the priesthood.

While it’s tempting to write about liberal “funny guys” who make careers of going after low-hanging fruit, which is defined as any group you can ridicule because they don’t threaten to chop your head off like Islamic clerics in Pakistan (e.g., Christians, Indians), instead I’ll focus on the much more important question: When is our liberal friend, Joel Stein, going to really go hog wild and mix his fascination with masturbation with his urge to insult Indians?

Joel, seriously, I know that you want to come up with a masturbation joke involving the Indian goddess Devi. You know you want to. And because you’re a liberal everyone will mop up your intellectual mess and flush it down the toilet. If you were a conservative like me, however, guys like you would be writing Slate articles about how I’m a racist, bigot, homophobe Teaparty-attending knuckle dragger. But, like I said in regards to the Andrew Breitbart/Seth MacFarlane fight night that’s about to take place, the internet is a beautiful thing. It makes sure that guys like you are exposed as hypocrites.

So keep talking, Joel. And keep blathering on about your masturbatory habits, because every time you do readers realize that you’re just another liberal man-boy who should be treated as such. Say hi to Kal for me too, because I’m sure that once the Barack Obama reelection campaign kicks off you’ll patch things up, at least until the polls come in.

Best,

Doug

Update: Joel has material for a new article: The guy who once made a Viagra ad has endorsed O’Donnell.  Start insulting someone Joel, because as the Joker would say: “It’s all part of the plan.”
