‘Reverse Racism’ And Other Lies Liberals Tell

Democrats have done a hell of a job dividing the country by skin color, gender, sexuality, income, you name it.

They thrive in that division the way bacteria thrive in a dirty wound. On race, Democrats struck their gold, and now the country is in turmoil while they’re hoping to reap the benefits. 


None of the other options – gender, sexuality, income, etc. – carry the weight that race does. They’re useful for Democrats in small skirmishes, but for larger, nationwide struggles, race is always where it’s at for them. It’s their favorite medium; they work in it the way Hunter Biden works in paint (now) or crack and hookers (20 minutes ago), it is their art form. 

Everything is racist, to the point that it’s difficult to keep up. That which isn’t obviously racist is structurally racist, and either or both can be fundamentally racists simultaneously, should that fit the left’s needs at any given moment. No proof of any of these allegations is required, usually because none exists. But when you have control of the media, no proof is needed – the allegation is evidence enough.

But every once in a while, some actual racism occurs. Not very often, mind you, but occasionally. You don’t and won’t hear about it because it’s drown out by all the false cries of racism or it’s a string of attacks on Asians or Jews by black men, which can’t help Democrats so it’s ignored. 

Then there are the cases that are referred to as “reverse racism.” These occur when the person being discriminated against is white. It’s an interesting term “reverse racism,” because it doesn’t mean what people think it does. 

To be the “reverse” of racist would be to explicitly NOT discriminate against someone based on their skin color. Now, thanks to the bastardization of the language by Democrats, it means to be accused of being racist against white people. To be racist against someone is to be racist, period. But the implications in the left’s creation of this stupid term is what they’ve been pushing on college campuses for decades – that only white people can be racist.


It’s a neat little trick they’ve pulled, absolving themselves of any possibility of racism while engaging in plain, straight-up racism, simply by claiming that it’s not enough to look down upon or hate someone based on their race, but you have to “have the power” to do something about it. 

That last part is where they hang their hats, but it’s incredibly stupid. According to the left, “the power” is institutional, meaning society-wide. Minorities, especially black people, to the left are the victims of society and have no power, therefore they cannot be racists, no matter what. It’s incredibly stupid because under this scenario, a homeless white man has more “power” than a black college professor who’s made a fortune selling garbage books about how everything is racist simply by changing his name from Henry Rogers to Ibram X. Kendi because of the color of his skin. 

Kendi’s philosophy has damaged the country, but he has likely become the wealthiest person in academia because of it. Meanwhile, thanks to Henry’s lies, black children in Canada will no longer be expected to learn math because “Mathematics is often positioned as an objective and pure discipline. However, the content and the context in which it is taught, the mathematicians who are celebrated, and the importance that is placed upon mathematics by society are subjective.” Two plus two doesn’t have to equal four because racism, or something. 


“Mathematics has been used to normalize racism and marginalization of non-Eurocentric mathematical knowledges, and a decolonial, anti-racist approach to mathematics education makes visible its historical roots and social constructions,” the official government report continues. 

Black kids will be made dumb in the name of “anti-racism.” To call it out is to be racist, somehow. When you are only interested in the pursuit of money and power, the carnage in your wake is not something you bother yourself with. 

In the name of “social justice,” a black principal can target teachers because they’re white and claim victim status at the same time, because “reverse racism” doesn’t exist. 

It’s a stupid concept conservatives need to stop pretending is real, it’s not. Stop using the phrase. Racism is racism, end of story. Stop ceding ground to the left – how many times have you heard about “migrants” crossing the southern border? They’re illegal aliens. Once you let your opponent define the terms acceptable for a discussion, you’ve lost the argument. Take it back. 

Real systemic racism is leftists insisting people can’t take care of themselves, or can’t produce a photo ID, simply because of the color of their skin. It’s trapping kids in schools designed to churn out victims and lifelong Democrat voters rather than educated human beings ready to begin adulthood. That’s where racism lies and the left lies about racism. It’s also where a huge part of their power comes from. That’s not a coincidence.
