Now that the Russia collusion story has lost its glow, the Left's narrative--beyond, of course, impeachment--is that anyone expressing a contrary opinion is a racist. It is so exhausting.

What is a racist, anyway?--an individual who believes that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that these differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Tethering a rival to racism is designed to be a career-ender. Thus, some presidential hopefuls profess embarrassment and remorse because they are Caucasian, while others believe themselves to be morally superior because they are not.

The political pot-stirrers wail that our country is racist, despite the fact that we elected the son of a black African and a white American to be our leader.

No. They were stating facts that in today's brave new world white people are forbidden from uttering. Of course, the light shed on Baltimore inspired many "racists" to help clean up distressed neighborhoods.

Also, recall a CNN radio hosfs stunning response to a black man after he expressed his belief in the merits of responsibility and hard work: "By virtue of being a white male you have white privilege." Talk about racial stereotyping--how could a black person...
