Let’s say you want to go visit a city, and have never been there before, and don’t have friends there to show you around. If you prepare and want to have a safe fun trip, you are a racist. Yes indeed, actually wanting to be safe is now the definition of racism. According to many articles in the MSM, like this one at Gawker. here is a list of desires that make you racist:
You see there is a new app you can get for your smart phone called SketchFactor that maps out “sketchy” neighborhoods.
Although there is a place in the app to report racial profiling by cops, if you look at the app, there is no place to report “this is a black neighborhood,” or “lots of hispanics live here” but according to the news stories, because it was created by white guys, and reports on the relative safety of specific neighborhoods, it’s a racist app. < sarcasm font on > You see wanting safety while walking is a city is racist concept. How dare white people create an application that notes unsafe “sketchy” neighborhoods, don’t they understand that they need to be tolerant of other cultures where street violence is the norm. It’s prejudice to expect lawful behavior and actually inform your fellow citizens where they may not be safe. Desiring a safe neighborhood is racist. < sarcasm font off >
Of course the rant at Gawker does pose the question; “Is there any way to keep white people from using computers, before this whole planet is ruined?” Yep if the people who want to know where it’s safe are white, they are racist, and those people using computers to communicate that certain neighborhoods aren’t safe are ruining the whole planet.
What is painfully obviously, cries of “racism” are no longer an epithet to be feared and avoided. When wanting to be safe, and know what places are not safe is called “racist” that moniker no longer carries any weight. Cries of racism by progressives today, have totally “jumped the shark”, “nuked the fridge,” and are to be considered “totally bogus.” But I guess using such colloquialisms is I itself racist. Damn! I really need a sarcasm font
