If You Think Race Relations Suck Thank A Liberal

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but race relations kind of suck right now. Well, that might not be entirely true. If you log onto social media or turn on a television, you’d probably think that race relations suck. My own life and experiences don’t confirm that, but I’ve felt myself internalizing some of what I see and thinking through a hyper racial, hyper political lens. I went to dinner with a (white male) friend recently and another white male kept staring at us from across the bar. My friend thought he was checking me out, and I wondered to myself if he was actually some alt right psycho silently seething at the sight of what he thought was an interracial couple. I’ll never know what that guy was thinking, but I definitely find myself jumping to conclusions that never even would have crossed my mind this time last year.

I don’t know how much this hyper-racial reality is fabrication vs fact, but there are two things I can say with certainty: 1) the left has created a monster and 2) the more we focus on race, the more race relations suffer.

When the left adopted the sociological definition of racism (prejudice + power), it was the beginning of the end of rational dialogue. When the definition of racism was manipulated for an outcome where only white people could be villains and only people of color could be victims, we all became intellectually dishonest in my opinion. By muddying the definition of racism, we’ve made it nearly impossible to actually detect. When someone is accused of being a racist now, I have no idea if they’re actually racist or the liberal version of “racist.” I don’t know if they want to establish an ethno-state or they just happened to be white and enjoy ethnic food. Steven Crowder actually made a great video about this.

And as we’ve talked incessantly about race and racism, and one group has been told they’re above criticism while the other feels they don’t even have a voice in the discussion, we’ve only grown to resent one another.

I’m not saying that the left is always wrong or the right is always right. Neither side can be held solely responsible. Liberals occasionally raise valid points on societal structures. But I don’t think it’s possible to ignore that the driving force behind our focus on race has been the left by and large.

From college campuses to Hollywood to the DNC itself, the emphasis on race and aggrievement has been abundant and evident in almost every institution monopolized by the left. And what do we have to show for it? We have Charlottesville, and the people in attendance. What’s heartbreaking is that many normal people are being seduced by extremism as a result of our ultra divisive political landscape.

A lot of white people are becoming just as fake oppressed as people of color. White people, like all people have legitimate grievances. For example, diversity quotas can and do easily result in qualified white male candidates being overlooked for under-qualified candidates because they give the appearance of inclusivity. That is wrong. That is institutional. That is discrimination. But a lot of the people being drawn to these extremes are just butt hurt over a classmate telling them to check their privilege in a Facebook argument. A lot of white nationalists are genuinely unexceptional people that now have a scapegoat for their frustration with their own lives. And the left has no one to blame but themselves, because they made it cool to blame all of your problems on factors outside of your control like race and gender.

The way we make America great again, in my opinion at least, is to make victimhood for losers again, judge people as individuals again, and hold people accountable again. As easy as it is to become disheartened by our political climate, I’m optimistic about the future of this country. If there is any chance at a universal rejection of identity politics, it will be thanks to assholes like Richard Spencer.

    Well said, er, written. We are in an era of complete racial insanity which has no basis in reality. The liberals are to blame . A few unfortunate incidents of criminals shot, coupled with the presidential election season, created a perfectly awful coincidence , the same way the Sandy Storm was a hurricane and a high tide moon pull.
    The liberal party is only in the interest of its own survival, so that’s why they let the cities burn, and let millions of illegals in. It’s more voters, more future voters, more welfare. Armies of young energetic dumb kids go to college together on MY taxpayer dime, and instead of getting job skills, they major in liberal subversion,, wasting their teens and 20s turning into sociopathic monsters who destroy race relations, destroy private property, destroy public discourse… god save the USA

  • New blog post about how getting into what’s essentially a grown up sorority after not being able to participate in Greek Life in college reminded me that it’s never too late to create the life you want; I know it sounds stupid on the surface but check it out anyway 🤪 — link in bio!
  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.
