Disturbing Lessons From the Chicago Beating
Everything Prager says here is valid. Reverse the races of the perpetrators and the victim and the storm would have broken like Hurricane Katrina, the riots would have gone on in many places for several nights. And it was covered in such sparse and PC ways that for a while you would have little chance of understanding what really happened. Only after the tumult finally broke, and that only because for heaven's sake IT WAS ON FACEBOOK, and anyone could see and hear what the monsters said and did, were the Chicago police essentially forced to classify it as a hate crime. But not one about race, oh no, it was about a disabled person. All that background screaming about Trump and White people..... never mind, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, right? This is how crazy things have gotten. A few years ago some professor actually proclaimed that only White people could be racists. A statement which in itself is inherently racist, and monumentally stupid. Yet apparently now somehow accepted by a lot of people. If you want to ensure racial tensions only climb, never decline, this is the way to make that happen. Ignorance, stupidity, and a capacity for evil are part of the human condition, and have no relationship to the skin one is wearing. A truth that everyone needs to understand and accept. To believe otherwise is to keep building the barriers that keep people penned in by fear, mistrust, and hate. --Del
