In case you haven’t figured it out yet, so-called “social justice” efforts aren’t aimed at righting ongoing wrongs of “systemic” inequality and racism because they don’t exist.
Rather, those efforts are designed to enact official policies aimed at achieving vengeance against white people in America for things literally none of them have done to persons of color, ever.
Accepting that will help you understand such blatantly racist ‘recommendations’ that are supposedly designed to bring about ‘equality,’ when really they’re just designed to cancel out the white majority (many of whom already vote with the left as it is).
Writing in the leftist bible The Nation, Brandon Hasbrouck, an assistant professor at Washington and Lee University School of Law, actually proposed allowing black votes to count twice as a means of enacting “vote reparations.”
Not even kidding.
Black votes in this country are worth less than white votes. Joe Biden won the Electoral College because Black voters in Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia turned out in significant numbers. But even with overwhelming Black support—94 percent of Detroit voted for Biden!—the outcomes in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania were worryingly close.
One core problem is the Electoral College. Wyoming, which has just 580,000 residents and is 93 percent white, gets three electors because of its two senators and one representative in the House. By comparison, Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District—which includes Atlanta, has 710,000 residents, and is 58 percent Black—has no dedicated electors or senators and can only occasionally overcome the mostly white and conservative votes from elsewhere in the state. This devaluation of Black votes allows our political system to ignore Black lives, and the consequences are devastating. Unequal representation has led to unequal health care outcomes, which the Covid-19 pandemic has only worsened. Without sufficient voting power, Black communities receive substandard education, and politicians are free to appoint judges who sanction mass incarceration, abusive policing, and electoral disenfranchisement.
This is all by design. The Constitution’s framers set up the Electoral College to protect the interests of slave states.
These are not the arguments of someone with a discerning mind. These are the rantings of a propagandist steeped in historical delusion and blinded by hatred of Americans ‘who don’t look like’ him (to borrow a phrase from the Marxists). To claim that “black votes are worth less” than anyone else’s is madness; it’s America, and one person equals one vote, period.
The nonsense about the Electoral College aside, there is simply no evidence for any of his claims – that COVID is racist against blacks; that policing is “abusive”; that “mass incarceration” occurs, or that there is “electoral disenfranchisement.”
Where there is some agreement – “black communities receive substandard education” – these are all cities and communities run by Democrats, the closet America has to a Marxism Party, and the party ‘academics’ like Hasbrouck overwhelmingly support. But seldom do these pseudo-intellectual racists ever get challenged to explain why that is.
It’s bad enough that these people are in our institutions of higher learning where they can, and do, spread their poisonous, racist demagoguery. It’s worse that they’re never forced to defend the indefensible things they rant about when it comes to tearing down the very society that has given them everything they say they’ve been denied.
