PROGRESSIVE RACISM

 

Recovered_JPEG_9562

We all recognize and rightfully-reject the Conservative Prejudices… that (for example) blacks are dumber than whites and criminally-inclined, women are less rational and bad at science, Jews are sneaky in a clever way, white males rule the Earth by divine mandate, etc. But do we recognize and reject the Liberal Prejudices… that (for example) blacks are naturally more soulful and athletic, women are more nurturing and wise about life, Jewish and Asian males are brighter but unsexy, Asian females are “inscrutable” but sexier, males in general aren’t “in touch with their feelings”, Native Americans are noble and “one with nature”, etc. Until we reject BOTH sets of Sexist and Racist Stereotypes, Life will remain a confusing blur of comfortable fictions and people will suffer.
