I’ve been perplexed by the attention given to Rachel Dolezal, the woman who now says she “identifies as black”.
I suppose I shouldn’t be perplexed. What passes as news these days is shameful. But what’s even more interesting is the abandonment of logic by virtually all commentators on this subject.
No longer is a man a man and a woman a woman. Bruce Jenner is a woman because he says he is, Rachel Dolezal is black because she ‘identifies’ as black. Is there no reality any more?
Those of us who claim there are flaws in the science of global warming for example are called “flat-earthers”. We are neandrothol, science deniers who reject logic. Yet here we are with those same people defying any reasonable amount of common sense.
It get’s worse….
Time.com posted an article written by Kareem Abdul-jabbar where he pointed out the following:
“The thing about race is that, scientifically, there is no such thing. As far back as 1950, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) released the conclusions of an international group of anthropologists, geneticists, sociologists, and psychologists that stated that the concept of race was not a scientific entity but a myth.”
So let me pose a simple question: If race is a scientifically dis-proven myth, why are we even talking about it?
I guess this means we can get rid of any laws or distincions that provide advantages to minorities right? Colleges for example would be foolish to offer special consideration to black students because race is a myth.
This is the level of stupidity we’ve now decended to. Race is a myth, you can be a woman simply by declaring it and you can change your ethnicity by simply identifying yourself as being partial to their cause.
I discuss all of that PLUS the TPA/TPP on today’s show. Give it a listen and if you like what you see you can subscribe here:
