(Annie Black) – I’m sure you’ve heard the term “junk science.” It’s defined as “untested or unproven theories when presented as scientific fact.”
Well, welcome to “junk racism.”
Same principle. Over and over again we’re told – by the left and media (sorry, I repeated myself) – that America is plagued with “systemic racism” even though there is absolutely NO proof of the claim.
To the contrary, this supposedly “racist” nation recently elected a black man president of the United States. TWICE.
Which brings me to U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, a black Republican, who delivered the GOP response to President Joe Biden’s systemically boring Address to Congress Wednesday night.
And he hit it out of the park.
He also hit a raw nerve.
His most powerful and controversial statement: “Hear me clearly. America is not a racist country.”
Fact Check: TRUE.
But…hoo-boy! That lit up the “Race Hustlers of America” club. Big time.
Many immediately attacked the Senator for supposedly “selling out” and being a “race traitor.”
“Trotting out sycophantic black folks who will serve as apologists for white supremacy is a tried-and-true tactic that racists have used for centuries,” bleated Talbert Swan of the NAACP.
Those upset over Sen. Scott “leaving the liberal plantation” even adopted a social media hashtag for the old “Uncle Tom” slur against any conservative or Republican black who dares to challenge the left’s racist narrative: “Uncle Tim.”
In response, Sen. Scott noted that opponents weren’t attacking his policies, “but are literally attacking the color of my skin. You cannot step out of your lane according to the liberal elite left.”
So who are the real racists, right? But here’s the interesting thing…
Asked about Sen. Scott’s declaration on Thursday, Vice President Kamala Harris, a black Democrat, replied: “No, I don’t think America is a racist country.”
FINALLY, bi-partisan agreement on something in DC!
But that hasn’t stopped the Kamala administration – oh, sorry – the BIDEN administration from whipping out the race card every chance it gets, including the President falsely claiming Georgia’s new election reform law was “Jim Crow in the 21st Century.”
Instead of fanning the flames of race hatred and division, we should be pursuing the ultimate goal of continuing down the path towards a color-blind society. But that’s hard to do when every time you turn around every issue these days is couched in racial arson.
For example, consider this provision tucked inside a Senate Joint Resolution (SJR11) in the Nevada Legislature purportedly dealing with the alleged “wage gap” between men and women…
“These facts and figures represent the consequences of sexism and white supremacy in the United States and how the country systematically devalues women, particularly women of color, and their labor.”
Reminds me of an old line about how liberal newspapers would report on the Earth being destroyed by an asteroid: “World Ends Tomorrow! Women, Minorities Hardest Hit!”
Unsupported and false claims of racism are, indeed, junk racism.
Declaring Aunt Jemima syrup and Uncle Ben’s rice to be racist is junk racism. Accusing people of being racist who aren’t is junk racism. Proclaiming racism, as Gov. Sisolak has done, to be a “public health crisis” is junk racism.
And I’m sure I’ll be called a racist now for saying so.
But it that’s the best you got, you don’t got squat.
