"American Doesn't Have A Gun Problem, It Has A White People Problem"

It's a free country, and you've got a right to write inane bullshit if you like. 
Imagine that somebody wrote this with 'black' and 'white' reversed, though. 
It'd the double standard that I refuse to acquiesce to.

Frankly, that's more than just inane. It's mendacious. There is no informed way to argue that white people are the primary problem in US homicides. The numbers are too brutally against that thesis.

Add in that these people are leaning into this sort of racially charged mendacity at exactly the wrong historical moment, and damn...

Yeah, I agree. It's not just a double standard...it's like a double-reverse double standard. Blacks commit a *lot* more crimes that whites. We all kind of try to ignore that / stay silent about it for a number of obvious reasons. But you've gotta draw the line somewhere...and when the left basically *reverses* the problem specifically in order to racialize it in the way they're so fond of...well...if we don't draw the line *there*...then where?

I mean...you want to bust on *men* for such stuff, that's one thing...but whites? Seriously???

OTOH, these jackasses are, I think, a fairly small slice of the left.

Or maybe not...I guess I can't really tell.

I honestly don't know. I think it's not uncommon among the journalist-y left, but that could be a function of click-seeking.

It's dangerous regardless. Everyone would be running around with their hair on fire if Daily Stormer agitprop went even remotely mainstream. This is frankly its equivalent in effect, really worse because it's actually effective by duping loyalty among left-liberals with the appearance of good intentions.

Also, it's always seemed to me that black Americans have been downright heroic in their general refusal to accept anti-white racism despite the way we've treated them. Or, at least, none of the black people I've known fairly well have seemed to have any significant anti-white racism in them.

But the academic / media / activist left seems intent on creating it. It seems basically undeniable to me that they've begun pushing that project pretty hard. Like what this country needs is a whole new racism vector.

Something about Robert Conquest and organizations being run by a cabal of their enemies.

Or specifically I've come to a realization that radical politics usually isn't the desire to truly end an injustice, but to simply put yourself on the winning side of it.

At least they are explicit about it.

"The search for the perfect slur for white people has been relentless, exhausting and mostly fruitless. There are dozens of contenders, but none that have ever truly stuck."

Jared Kushner is more of what I think of as a "white people problem." He should have been rejected with prejudice by Republicans. Imagine if Obama had brought in a dubiously confident nephew into government, and you can see the difference in black and white.
