The manifestly unjust idea of racial reparations won’t go away among manifestly unjust leftists. From Taki Theodoracopulos at takimag.com:
Okay, sports fans, get your wallets out and start giving. That’s the latest brainstorm from a New York Timescolumnist who makes however unconvincing a case for reparations to black people. For slavery, that is. And that means you, whitey—or brownie, and I guess that goes for yellow ones also. He wants these reparations to be legislated into law, and everyone except African-Americans has to pay. His idea is hardly original. Race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Kamala Harris, even Jesse Jackson, have been dropping heavy hints for years. Black Americans want money, and the rest of us have to give it to them, “punto basta,” as they say in the land of pasta.
The media has managed to impose a kind of groupthink that tells us that America is rife with racism and bigotry, but looking around and watching television, the only racism I seem to notice nowadays is the one against whites who go to church and raise law-abiding families. Watch any Netflix or Amazon series and you’ll see what I mean. (Better not watch it, actually.) The priest is always a pervert, the religious families are selling drugs on the sly, and all cops and soldiers are rapists, racists, and bigots. All criminals are white, blond, and sporting Nazi tattoos. Well, you know the rest. Political correctness and diversity training have now become standard, and lockstep conformity is the order of the day. The media is most responsible for spreading this plague, and now we have a columnist for a malignant, anti-Christian, antiwhite, anti-male newspaper suggesting that we are all responsible for slavery and should lighten our wallets.
