Fisher column evokes Holocaust
RYLAND Fisher’s column (“If you have money, you can do whatever you want”, Weekend Argus, May 27) was confused.
He seemed to throw every disconnected thing into one story with the aim of delegitimising one group: whites.
Although this has become commonplace, this doesn’t change the fact that such group stereotyping is deeply racist, and would never be tolerated if it was aimed at blacks.
What is the connection between those who chose to boycott a Spur restaurant for ill-conceived reasons and his contention that there is “much wealth in the wrong hands”?
I seriously doubt whether the boycotters are wealthy. Probably the opposite. But Fisher equates white with wealth, which is a dangerous line of thought if you consider that the lead up to the extermination of the Jews started with the Nazis equating Jews with wealth.
It is untenable that there is so much inequality, but that is what the government is for. It has the power to tax (which it does) and should not steal the money and stick to outdated communist policies.
