Sarah Jeong of the New York Times wrote the following:
The world could get by just fine with zero white people.
It’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.
Dumbass f—-ing white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.
Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically only being fit to live underground like groveling bilious goblins?
Walter Williams argues that if “white” in these statements were replaced by “black,” then Jeong’s life would be quickly ruined. There is a double standard that posits that hatred of whites is Ok but is not tolerated of blacks.
This is true, but Williams’ “conservative” conclusion is typically inane. He apparently would like it if Jeong were fired or shamed for her “racist” remarks. Repression, according to him, should be “equal.”
I disagree. People should be able to express their contempt for any race whatsoever freely and without consequences (unless they are objectively mistaken).
It’s perfectly fine with me if Jeong were to continue her trash talking even from her lofty perch at the NYT, but those who would opine instead that “the world could get by just fine with zero black people” should be free from censorship, as well.
And to answer Jeong’s question, yes, white people are indeed genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun; that’s one way in which they are different from blacks. But the conclusion that whites need to live underground does not follow.
