Want to read about one of the most disgusting, hideous things happening in America today?  Liberals have changed the definition of “racism” to make a very bad and inaccurate ideological point. NBC published a sarcastice piece recently which demonstrates this:

These have been challenging times to be white in America.

People who aren’t white may find this surprising. After all, it has been decades since white people could feel so free about loving their whiteness, or so openly celebrate whiteness, or talk about how much they relish being white and doing white activities. Recent trends in politics and media have amplified the interlocutors of pro-white sentiments, who certainly always existed but were traditionally somewhat less overtly vocal. It seems like a special Christmas for white people almost every week, courtesy of an extra-caucasian Santa Claus.

The writer goes on to postulate:

Racism has always been and always will be about possessing, maintaining and applying power. Racist jokes told by white people about non-white people superficially mock this or that alleged racial characteristic, just as Jeong’s tweets about white people did. But rhetorically, racist jokes are told to reassure white people about their top spot on the pyramid, and to reinforce that position by degrading nonwhite people who encounter such jokes.

In contrast, as should be obvious to anyone reading them, Jeong’s tweets vented the collective frustration of everyone else struggling on that pyramid of institutional racism. The reason her tweets can be reversed into racist jokes is because racist jokes inspired them. “White people jokes” intrinsically mock all the racist jokes, scientific treatises, magazine covers, and Founding Fathers’ statements about non-white people’s supposedly immutable inferiority, and point out how stupid they are and always were.

Thus, white people getting mad — or publicly performing anger, at least — about white people jokes is actually white people getting mad about threats to white power. Threats like a woman of color joining the editorial board of the New York Times after telling smarter and funnier jokes than them on Twitter. Racism is a mechanism of maintaining an imbalance of power — making it literally impossible, by definition, to be racist against white people, or to tell a racist joke about a white person.

This reminds me of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, where the government only allows “Newspeak to be spoken in Oceana to meet the ideological requirements.  Newspeak is comprised of limited grammar and restricted vocabulary, meant to limit the ability of a citizen to express himself, his personal identity, and his free will— if any of those thought threatens the régime of Big Brother or are politically unorthodox.

Similarly, in these polarizing times, NBC is the excusing and promoting, actual “racism” by defining it as “not racism.”

Let’s hope the KKK doesn’t take note of the new strategy.  That’s not going to work out well…for anyone.
