If, on the other hand, you still live
in the real world, you know that everyone can be racist, and that
racism is making a strong comeback in American society today. That’s not
because Bull Connor has unleashed his dogs once again and Lester Maddox
is back waving his axe handle; instead, it’s because it has become
acceptable in woke culture to bash white people in ways that, if any
other group were being discussed in the same terms, would ruin careers
and shut down networks. But racism against white folks is not just
acceptable today; it’s a sure-fire means of career advancement.
On MSNBC’s The Cross Connection on Sunday, the show’s host,
Tiffany Cross, asserted that white people didn’t understand why black
people were telling them not to comment upon Will Smith’s
still-resounding slap of Chris Rock in front at the Oscars last week.
Her guest, TheGrio columnist Michael Harriot, then claimed that it was “hard to explain to a white person what’s the difference between an open-handed slap and a punch.”
Oh, pick me, sir! Pick me! An open-handed slap is, well, uh, a slap
with the open hand, and a punch is delivered with the closed fist. The
slap is generally considered to be a gesture of profound contempt, but
somewhat less aggressive than a punch. Now, I’m white and all that, and
I’m heartily sorry for that, but was my answer correct?
Cross, however, didn’t even consider the possibility that some white
people might know what she was talking about, declaring that “they,”
that is, those silly, stupid, benighted whites, “consider it all
Well, yes. That’s because it is all violent. But according
to Cross, idiot whites are missing the fact that there was “nuance to
what happened.” She then launched into a bizarre story that was
apparently meant to illustrate why those who have the misfortune to be
white should say nothing about the slap. “I will try to put this in
context for our white fellow countrymen as best I can. And really,
truly, black America, there’s a commonality amongst us all. And if we
went to a white person’s home, and it was their family dinner, and we
were sitting at the table, and the mother hauled off and slapped the
father. And everybody at the table has an opinion. You know, the sister
is like, ‘Mom, you always do this.’ And the brother is like, ‘I can’t
believe you’re doing this.’ And Dad is like, ‘You’re terrible.’ If I
weigh in as the guest in this home and I say, ‘Yeah, you guys are
terrible.’ Everybody’s like, ‘I’m sorry. When did you get an opinion?
This is our family table.’” There is more.
