“Race matters” [Darleen Click]
“Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage — the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry” ~~Ayn Rand
SCOTUS “Justice” Sotomayor has lived up to every warning issued about her dedication to the Left’s ideology of viewing all reality through the lens of Race-Class-Gender. Her 58-page polemic can be reduced to one phrase she used several times while attempting to coin yet another euphemism for naked racial preferences.
Such a phrase is the raison d’être of all manner of racial supremacist groups regardless of how often they use the words “social justice” in their mission statements. It has as much connection to actual natural rights as the phrase “People’s Republic” does to democratic governments.
What we are being fundamentally changed to is a racial spoils system, where individuals must cling to a group identity in order to be “authentic” and socially acceptable. And the group Rulers will be solely in charge of defining the correct thought systems for the members.
And the world of Race Identity is a Kafkaesque theater of the absurd where people are to be judged by other people’s race-dominate perceptions, accurate or not.
Clive Bundy says something “racially insensitive” and Everyone Must ignore the military-style invasion of his property to collect on a bill.
Clipper-owner Donald Sterling is taped making racist comments and Shocked!SHOCKED! calls come from all quarters to strip him of team ownership. Ironic in a sport that, on Leftism’s own standard of melanin counting, is not racially inclusive.
I await the NBA’s race-sensitive admissions policies to correct for years of white/asian/hispanic player under-representation.
The Left’s race-spoils systems is even promoted by the least-free of American institutions — colleges and universities — where a university President does not say “how can we make sure we have attract the best and brightest of students of good character regardless of background” but says
“How do we make sure that in future years we are not as white as we are today?”
Race matters only to racists, no matter the level of melanin they possess while mouthing their primitive collectivism.
