It was the end of our baseball, but who cares?
…and it looks like at Evergreen College they’re still all for it:
The student newspaper at Evergreen State College has a section in its opinion pages described as “for people of color by people of color.”
“This should be a place where we can be us without it being overshadowed by the dark cloud that is living under white supremacy and having to see things from a white perspective.
Of course I’m being a little hard on Evergreen, all over the liberal collegian world Democrats are discovering the joys of segregation and separate but equal and declaring anyone who doesn’t agree with them beyond contempt.
It reminds me of this description of the Movie Birth of a Nation (1915) by the late Roger Ebert:
Watching them today, we are appalled. But audiences in 1915 were witnessing the invention of intercutting in a chase scene. Nothing like it had ever been seen before: Parallel action building to a suspense climax. Do you think they were thinking about blackface? They were thrilled out of their minds.
Today, what they saw for the first time, we cannot see at all. Griffith assembled and perfected the early discoveries of film language, and his cinematic techniques that have influenced the visual strategies of virtually every film made since; they have become so familiar we are not even aware of them. We, on the other hand, are astonished by racist attitudes that were equally invisible to most white audiences in 1915.
If that movie was made today that scene wouldn’t be there because the modern college SJW’s would have already excoriated the black man interested in a white woman as a traitor to his race.
To the liberal of 1955 or 1963 or even 1915 the idea of separate but equal was an abomination designed to keep American Blacks from fully becoming part of American society, culture and success. To the Democrat party of that time, it was, like slavery before it, a means to maintain power and control. That the Democrat party of 2017 is arguing for the same cultural separation that they were 100 years ago in the heyday of Jim Crow and that many of those Democrats arguing for it are black Democrats who are so excited at the prospect of potential power that they don’t see the blatant racism in their actions is an irony so deep that anyone with the smallest grasp of history can barely wrap one’s head around it.
