It’s the first and last go-to of the modern left: Racist! Everything is racist. People, books, places, the police, the Republicans, certain films and TV, and especially American history. It’s a scam to keep minorities angry and distracted from what the Democrats have done to them for 60 years. And sadly, people are gullible and bitter enough to buy it. But it’s not the truth.
For decades many laws and trillions of dollars have gone to making this a fairer society. It has worked. Minority citizens are at the pinnacle of politics, wealth, sports, entertainment, finance, and a plethora of other areas. But for the left and the Democrats it will never be enough because it was never about fairness, equal opportunity, or a just society. To them, it’s only about raw power.
“The reality is that the U.S. is one of the most multi-ethnic societies on earth, [and]is one of the most harmoniously multi-ethnic societies on earth, and that its guarantees of civil and human rights are stronger than almost every nation ever known…” https://t.co/ve5mZnv2FV

FNC: “President Biden addressed Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict Tuesday saying the death of George Floyd is an example of systemic racism, but Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume disagrees that America is inherently racist.”
“I don’t think Americans mostly think our country is systemically racist. I think most Americans believe it once was systemically racist.” As for the cry of racism at every turn? “The term is flung about with abandon by politicians and others,” he said. “I don’t think we are a racist country and anything like what we were once before.
“The situation we confront now is where you see politicians and others who want it to appear that everything that’s happened so far is not enough. And maybe it’s not. But every step, of course, everything that’s done to do better is merely a first step. Because I think the truth is that there is an advantage to be had in waving the banner of racism.
“We need to not be cowed… by being accused of being a racist,” he said. “We need to resist that. We need to denounce it. We need to not give in to it.” Hume is right. Political blackmail only works when there is something to cover up. America is not perfect, it never has been, but it is not a racist country. We ended that, the systems of slavery and Jim Crow supported by Democrats, a long time ago.
