The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles: “White People Are the Only People Who Do Not See Color”

Media Matters, January 18, 2024

In his introductory press conference, Jerod Mayo, new coach of the New England Patriots, made some remarks on diversity:

“You want your locker room to be pretty diverse, and you want the world to look like that. What I will say, though, is I do see color because I believe if you don’t see color, you can’t see racism,” Mayo said.


MICHAEL KNOWLES (HOST): Speaking of football, the New England new head coach has just come out and made clear the DEI policies for the team.


{snip}What I think he’s missing, what all of the libs miss when they inveigh against the evil white man, the source of all the problems in the world, we are told, is that white people are the only people who do not see color. {snip} The only people for whom that has been true ever in the whole history of the world is white people.

{snip} When you ask people their racial consciousness, when — when you ask people, hey, is race — is your race somewhat or very important to you? Every racial group other than white people is above 50 percent. Asians, Hispanics. For Black people, it’s above 70 percent. What’s the number for white people? 15. White people have zero racial consciousness — 15 percent, I guess. They don’t — they really don’t see color. Everyone else does, and everyone else has for all of history, which is how we’ve ended up in a situation today where white people are the only group that you can discriminate against by law and according to the mores of society.
