Black: The New Color of Privilege

Most Americans, I believe, thought all the race-baiting rhetoric might have finally come to an end. Apparently they were wrong.

Eric Holder says we need to keep on talking about race–having frank conversations.

OK, I’ll take the bait. Let’s talk frankly about race.

During the last presidential election, Barack Obama, the first black presidential candidate nominated by the Democratic Party, won the largest percentage of white voters of any Democrat in a two-man race since 1976.

Some 43 percent of white votes went to Obama–55 percent going to John McCain. Among younger white voters, 54 percent voted for Obama. To put that in perspective, in the past 30 years, no Democrat presidential nominee has won more than 45 percent of young white votes.

That suggests to me that white Americans are more than willing to put the racial divide behind them.

But what about blacks?

The sad reality is that 96 percent of black Americans voted for Obama–96 percent!

Where is the evidence of white racism in the presidential vote?

Not only did white Americans vote willingly for a black man for president, they voted for one with no qualifications {snip}.

So when are Barack Obama and Eric Holder and the rest of their divisive, America-hating gang of race hucksters going to give white America a break?

Far from being racist, American culture has so romanticized blackness that American white children now wish they were black. The hideous gangster culture of black hip-hop serves as their soundtrack, their speech riddled with ghetto language and their baggy pants falling off their flat behinds.

Why are white kids envious of blacks?

Maybe, in part, it’s because black is the new color of privilege in America–at least insofar as government is concerned. Blacks and other so-called minority groups get preference in hiring, for contracts, for educational opportunities, for grants, for student aid, for ownership of broadcast outlets and other businesses regulated by government. Yes, we’ve come a long way, baby–from racial preferences for whites to racial preferences for blacks.

If we’re a nation of cowards on matters of race, as Eric Holder suggests, it’s because too few of us are willing to point out the new institutional anti-white racism imposed by government.
