It’s the new left’s first and last resort: Racist! All is racially motivated. People, books, buildings, the police, Republicans, some films and television shows, and particularly American history are all examples of this. It’s a ruse designed to hold minorities enraged and focused on what the Democrats have done to them over the past 60 years. Unfortunately, people are both gullible and bitter enough to fall for it. However, this is not the case.
Many legislation and trillions of dollars have been spent over the years to make this a more just country. It was successful. Minority people hold positions of power in politics, wealth, sports, culture, banking, and a variety of other fields. But it would never be enough for the left and the Democrats because it was never about fairness.
“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

“President Biden answered Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict Tuesday, saying George Floyd’s death was an indication of institutional racism, but Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume denies that America is fundamentally racist,” according to FNC.
“I don’t believe most Americans believe our nation is racist on a structural level. Most Americans, I believe, believe it was once systemically racist.” What about the constant cries of racism? “Politicians and others throw around the word with abandon,” he said. “I don’t believe we are a racist nation or something like we used to be.
“What we have now is a situation where politicians and others want it to appear that anything that has happened so far has been accidental.
Perhaps it isn’t. But, of course, any step taken to improve one’s situation is just that: a first step. And I believe the reality is that there is a benefit to waving the racist flag.
“We must not be intimidated… by accusations of racism,” he said. “We have to fight back. It must be condemned. We must not succumb to it.” Hume is right. Political extortion is only effective when there is something to hide. America has never been perfect, but it is not a racist country. Slavery and Jim Crow, which were sponsored by Democrats, were abolished a long time ago.
