Liberalism and political correctness makes people stupid. That’s an undeniable fact. Further proof of this came today when American Muslim activist and professional Left-wing crazy Linda Sarsour said,
“At the end of the day, it’s self-identification. I’m Palestinian. If I want to say ‘I’m Black’, I’m Black – that’s on me. I can check whatever box.”
Uh, no. You can’t, Linda. That’s not how biology works!
Here’s a clip from Twitter of her saying this. Please tell me if she looks Black.
She looks whiter than a polar bear to me. If fact, she’s admitted as much in another clip where she stated,
“When I wasn’t wearing Hijab, I was just some ordinary white girl from New York City.”

Straight from the horse’s mouth. (Would the Left consider that species-phobic?)
So she claims to be white in one video, but she thinks she can just suddenly become Black in another video. Huh? Isn’t that cultural appropriation, Miss Sarsour?
So, which is it? Are you Palestinian, White, Black, or something else? Let me answer part of that for you – You’re NOT Black, Linda! Look in a mirror!
Leftists like Linda Sarsour think that identifying with the struggles of a group makes them part of that group. They want to prove “they’re down for the struggle.” But all it really makes them is race hustlers.
I can’t believe I have to say this, but here goes – You cannot just change your race, Linda!
There is a very good reason doctors ask for your ethnicity along with other personal information such as your gender (gasp!). There are physiological differences between different races. People from one racial group are more predisposed to certain medical issues than others. Doctors need to know this information to treat patients. This isn’t racist! This is just biology. (If I had a job at Google, I’d be fired for writing this paragraph.)
For example, people of African descent have a markedly higher likelihood of developing sickle cell anemia, much lower rates of skin cancer, and distinct differences in development of glaucoma than other racial groups. Meanwhile, Caucasians are much more likely to develop Multiple Sclerosis while Jews tend to get Crohn’s Disease more frequently. Certain cancers can also be more or less deadly depending on your ethnicity. These are just a couple examples and don’t come close to covering the extensive differences. Research cannot always explain the reasons, but they are real nonetheless.
The bottom line is – Biology doesn’t care about Leftist intersectionality talking points!
But that won’t stop Linda Sarsour or her likeminded brethren.
Word on the street is Linda will be joining Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King in concert to benefit the “racially-fluid”. They will be performing Michael Jackson’s “Black Or White”. Although the song may need to be slightly adjusted to “Black And/Or White????”
Well, MJ did say “it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white.” It took all these years for that message to sink in, but the Left is really taking it to heart now. Unfortunately, this isn’t quite what he had in mind.
