FRONT PAGE – DANIEL GREENFIELD
The release of an NPR poll in which a majority of white people (55%) answered that they face racial discrimination was treated with the media’s usual cocktail of condescension, disbelief and contempt.
But it’s not up for debate.
Racial discrimination against white people today is as real as the discrimination against black people was under segregation. We can talk about subjective experiences and do statistical correlations about differential outcomes until the cows come home. And that’s what most talk about racism is these days.
That and emotional outbursts, cries of, “Hands up, don’t shoot” and “I can’t breathe”.
But only one racial group in America is subject to a system of codes, regulations and laws discriminating against members of its race when it comes to employment and education.
Affirmative action is an inescapably real and racist as segregated water fountains.
Affirmative action is racial discrimination, not as a matter of opinion, but as a hard objective fact. Racial preferences reward and punish people based on their race. These preferences, no matter how they are disguised, pervade not just one region, the way that segregation did, but much of the country. Diversity is a mandate on campuses and in corporations across the country. And it’s the very definition of racism.
