I don’t buy your narrative that America is a racist country. I think you are ignorant: you have a cramped and impoverished understanding of history, and no sense of proportion. I reject your “white privilege” palaver. I don’t slice and dice my fellow man into little groups based on superficial characteristics, and I won’t claim to know any more about a man based on his skin color than you know about me based on mine.
Diversity and inclusion? You can keep it. Diversity of views is lovely. Diversity of race, sexual orientation, color, and other trivial details of anatomy and preference is a crock. Every man is an identity group of one, so keep your woke bigotry. You obsess about it all you like, but I’m not interested.
I’m far from perfect but I’m free of the sin of which my color, you believe, makes me guilty. I don’t care what you think about it. I’m not joining you in reinventing racism. I want our laws and our public institutions to be color blind, without preference or bias toward any race. Beyond that, every man can decide for himself how noble or petty he wishes to be.
I reject your thesis, I reject your claim to moral superiority, I reject your demands and your obsession with identity, and I reject your efforts to reinvigorate racism. I don’t take you seriously, and I’m not going to pretend that I take you seriously.Published in
