Demonizing White Men. By Walter Williams

Demonizing White Men. By Walter Williams
Excerpt: Don Lemon, a CNN anchorman, said, “We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.” Steven Clifford, former King Broadcasting CEO, said, “I will be leading a great movement to prohibit straight white males, who I believe supported Donald Trump by about 85 percent, from exercising the franchise (to vote), and I think that will save our democracy.” Teen Vogue, a magazine targeting teenage girls, wrote, “Not only is white male terrorism as dangerous as Islamic extremism, but our collective safety rests in rooting out the source of their radicalization.” Economist Paul Krugman, a New York Times columnist, wrote a column titled “The Angry White Male Caucus,” in which he explained, “Trumpism is all about the fear of losing traditional privilege.” There have been similar despicable statements made by academics. James Livingston, a Rutgers history professor: “OK, officially, I now hate white people. … I hereby resign from my race. F—- these people.” Stacey Patton, a Morgan State University professor: “There is nothing more dangerous in the United States than a white man who has expected to succeed and finds himself falling behind.” Stony Brook University sociology professor Michael Kimmel explained, “White men’s anger comes from the potent fusion of two sentiments: entitlement and a sense of victimization.”

1. White men are a target because liberals insist on controlling the dialogue and the language 
2. At least Teen magazine acknowledges that Islamic terrorism exists and is big.  Surprised they haven’t been called out in that

3. I’ll ask again...what are you bringing to the table?  Except for existing, how does your blackness, gayness, islamness bring prosperity and health and food and shelter?  What skills do you have to help others and the planet?  Can you save a stabbing victim or operate a bulldozer?  Not saying old white guys can do any of that either, but you don’t like them because they are old white guys.  They also aren’t trying to take anything from you.  But before we let you cross the street without adult supervision, maybe you should demonstrate that you can.-GS
