Racism: The Last Refuge of Us All? – Taki’s Magazine

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 20, 2017

Race is what you cling to when you have no meaningful achievements of your own to display. It’s a safe space for the unaccomplished. That’s why there’s been such an explosion of racism on the left, especially among some of its less successful demographic groups. When you have nothing to offer, or when you just don’t want to make the effort to be successful or productive, well…at least you have your skin.

I was struck by how pervasive this kind of thinking has become when I read an article a few days ago about Harvard’s new “blacks only” graduation ceremony (don’t worry—it’s not segregation, because even though nonblacks are forbidden to participate, they’re welcome to watch. “Hey, Rosa Parks, whatcha bitchin’ about? You can still see the front of the bus, right? Isn’t that good enough?”).

In other words, the two things that bicycle activists hold dearest—bike lanes and safe driving awareness—are now racist. The arguments? Safe driving enforcement will lead to “racial profiling,” because apparently nonwhites are such shit drivers that any attempt to keep bikers safe will by necessity lead to drivers of color being locked up (at least that’s the reason suggested by L.A.’s favorite Stalinist weekly). And bike lanes? Why are they racist? Simple, stupid. Bike lanes lead to white people entering black communities in a manner in which blacks are forced to see them. No, I’m not kidding.


hiking in the woods? Don’t even get me started on that. The wilderness itself is racist, because “escaped slaves” used to be confronted with “forests full of danger.” For people of color, “the wilderness, historically, is dangerous territory,” claims a Tokyo-born half-white/half-Asian wilderness racism “expert” in the L.A. Times. Ironically, her website shows her posing next to a tree. Kudos to the tree for restraining its racism for the sake of the photo.

This is funny when you first start to read but it rapidly makes you sick.

This is our Progressive, government educated millennial future.

Be seeing you
