Whites not inherently racist
I was brought up Roman Catholic. I was baptized as an infant to be absolved of original sin. What sin I had perpetrated, I could never completely understand. Later in life, it was vaguely explained to me. I accepted it and was grateful for being forgiven.
An additional infraction has now been leveled against me, this time concerning inherent racism. I’m told that insidious racist tendencies reside within me. I must seek remediation to eradicate these feelings of White superiority. This time my baptism will be performed by the sanctimonious left. Salvation will only come when I admit that my skin pigmentation allows me shameful advantages I don’t deserve.
I must yield to foolish ideas of social justice and support the narrative no matter how disingenuous and deceitful it might be.
In my 70 short years of existence, I’ve observed tremendous improvement toward the understanding and acceptance of a wide range of social issues. Race relations have figured prominently in this renaissance — until recently.
For those seeking political gain by keeping alive the idea that our country is profoundly and systemically racist, you’re pulling us all into a chasm that seems nearly impossible to escape. You should be ashamed.
