Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
I wanted to see if there were any positive changes with the newspapers, but it still mostly appears to be vehemently Anti-Trump. The New York Times today, is interestingly starting to soften its stance.
Gotta start somewhere!
Jumping over to the Washington Post, one particular article caught my eye. It was titled: White Supremacism is Ready to Roar.
(You know, the best part about not being the subject of blame, is that it makes you immune to the accusations.)
It was an article criticizing Steve King’s tweet:
“We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies”
Reading through the article, yep, yep, check, I can see the author’s points. I’ve seen that once or twice. I empathize with the author. You know there’s a lot of stuff that we’re not reading, just because our political biases prevent us from reading the other side’s articles.
But then I got to this part:
The article is sound. I understand what the author is saying.
The part about Steve King’s lexicon hit its mark, but then saying that the word “culture” and “civilization,’ is code word for white supremacy, is unfair to the people who aren’t white supremacists, and who use those words.
Many people use the words “culture,” and “civilization,” in various different contexts, but the author just needs to pinpoint the exact individuals who display characteristics of white supremacy, before the claim can begin to stick.
