Hey, kids, time for another “honest conversation” about race.
In this clip, Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson is referred to as a "bow tyin' white boy" by one attitude-laden Jehmu Green, who gets a pass on racist comments because she is black. (I wonder why Megyn Kelly didn't slap her around a bit. She's really good at that. Meow!) There was a time in the federal government workplace -- pretty much throughout the 1990s where I worked -- that this was quite common. Thankfully, I don't believe it would happen now.
They're talking about some professor in Massachusetts who has been claiming ethnic minority status for years, essentially wearing it on her sleeve, even though the person in question, not only is a mere one-thirty-second Native American, but has never registered with a Native American tribe, which would be prerequisite for her to claim such status, even in part, her high cheekbones notwithstanding.
At one time, in southern states such as Louisiana, being only one-sixteenth black was enough for you to be legally black, which probably meant you couldn't legally marry someone who was officially white. Or something. All that changed with the Supreme Court's 1967 ruling in the case of Loving vs Virginia.
We can sing "we shall overcome" all we want to. Once we do, the name-calling is pretty much out of order on either side of the fence, don't you think?
Or don't you?
