Every thinking person discriminates in one form or another, though most people would rather be locked in a bathroom with a diarrhetic Oprah than admit they discriminate.
Discrimination is just choosiness. Whether you’re being choosy based on baseless preconceptions about someone, based on your own personal observations of people like the person you’re discriminating against, or based on actual statistical data, it’s all discrimination and it’s all perfectly natural. It’s not a negative thing at all, though the Left has convinced most people that it is.
In social settings, people feel more comfortable among people like themselves. If you like to hang out with people who share similar hobbies, you are discriminating against people who don’t share those hobbies. If you’re a liberal and you don’t like hanging out with “close-minded Christians who oppose gay rights,” you’re discriminating against close-minded Christians who oppose gay rights. And that’s good! Why should anybody want to force you to hang out with someone you don’t like?
South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, WA, held a feel-good diversity event, in which they explicitly banned white students from participating. This news must surely have come like a slap in the face with a wet fish to the white social-justice warriors at the school who sincerely believed that if they debased themselves and ingratiated themselves and prostrated themselves before the “people of color” (colored people) at their school by constantly railing against their own fellow whites, they’d be accepted by those “coloreds.”
Not so, honky. “That space is not for white people, that space is for people of color,” said Karama Blackhorn, program coordinator for the school’s Diversity and Equity Center (they have “diversity and equity centers” at schools nowadays).
Because white liberals don’t pay attention to anything not involving themselves, they’re actually shocked to learn that this is the genuine attitude of their black classmates. They’re probably thinking, “You’re turning your backs on us and sticking with your own kind? But, but…we berated and rejected our own kind to make you happy!”
Miss Blackhorn—or would it be more politically correct to call her Miss Coloredhorn?—and her coordinators are being discriminatory, right? That’s what it is, technically. They’re discriminating against whites, but they’re being brilliant about it. They get away with it because, in discriminating against whites, they are making the place more diverse. And who is honestly going to have the courage to counter American culture by saying that diversity is actually a bad thing? Nobody.
“But wouldn’t it be even more diverse if there were more different kinds of people there? If four races are involved, that’s pretty diverse, but if you can include whites, that’d make it five races, and that’d be even more di–“
Shh! You bigot! You’re against diversity! Teacher, make him shut up! He’s oppressing me!
I personally think Miss Blackhorn and her racist friends have done a wonderful thing. One, they’ve shown that discrimination is okay. Yes, I fully, 100-percent support her group banning whites from whatever activities they want to set up. I’m a strong supporter of the right to freely associate with or disassociate from whomever you want. And in doing so, Miss Blackhorn has also given a legitimate excuse for whites or Asians to ban blacks or Mestizos from whatever activities they want to set up. This is a good precedent, I feel.
The second thing Miss Blackhorn has done, and perhaps the most important, is to prove true the claims of anti-multiculturalists that “diversity is a code-word for anti-white.” This “diversity event” makes that lesson clear for all to see in black and…well, brown and yellow. The sooner conservatives are disillusioned of their notion that everybody is as well-meaning as they are, the sooner they can actually join the culture war instead of letting it pound them in the temples like a daily game of knockout.
