I wrote a 750-word column*, inspired by the racist garbage with which The Washington Post defiled its pages.
Then I read David French’s response. It’s worth reading the whole thing, because French “gets it.”
Black radicals are fond of saying that their opponents refuse to listen. In reality, the opposite is true. People are hearing every word. They hear it when black radicals call cop-killers “political prisoners.” They hear the sneers and jeers when police — black and white — are gunned down in the streets or injured in protests. They see buildings burn, and they smell the smoke in the air. They can read the words that sweep every single person with white skin into the absurd category of “privileged” and then expect that these same people atone for sins they did not commit.
*My column is for the local paper where I write weekly. Here it is published on Medium.
