It’s no coincidence that those who believe themselves to be incapable of being racist are often the most racist among us. Take Shaun King (aka Talcum X) for example. He sees racism everywhere — except as coming from himself.
Here’s a tweet he sent out the other night, telling the world his brilliant plan to reduce sexual assault against children: just ban all the white men!
OK — so King admits the comments are “semi-satirical,” and what he’s really doing is trying to make an analogy about Islam.
It’s an idiotic comment, of course, and King (who actually believes he’s black), would be among those kicked out (seriously — just take a look at the man’s birth certificate).
Plus, if he’s trying to make a point here about being cautious about Muslim immigration due to extremists who may be among them, he could’ve at least gotten his statistics right.
While it is true that the vast majority of those who sexually abuse children are male perpetrators, and just over half are white (51 percent), we live in a country where 68 percent of the population is white. White men, in other words, are under-represented.
Meanwhile, statistics suggest Native Americans” are actually the most likely to commit sexual abuse. However, as they’re often designated a “marginalized” group by social justice warriors like King, he’d never use them as an example.
And, when it comes to fighting terrorism, it’s a fact Islam is a religion far over-represented when it comes to both the number of terrorist attacks committed in its name, and the resulting deaths.
Sorry to ruin your race-baiting fun, Shaun.
