And talking about the NYTimes, folks, do read this article (sorry, the app doesn’t let me link):
The title sounds like garbage but the article is actually pretty good. For those who don’t subscribe, the author is a black writer who’s trying to get his book published. But the editors have cancelled the pre-publication meeting because they need to gather and talk about their white guilt. In the meantime, white acquaintances are inundating him with tearful emails and texts asking his forgiveness for the existence of racism. And all the guy wants is to be left alone and get his book out.
There’s also a lot of dumb histrionics in the article about how he’s afraid he’ll be murdered for being black, etc etc. But the sad irony of the situation is that without this performance he wouldn’t get published in the New York Times.
He also offers a helpful suggestion for what the well-meaning white wokies can do:
[Send] texts: To your relatives and loved ones telling them you will not be visiting them or answering phone calls until they take significant action in supporting black lives either through protest or financial contributions.
That sounds like a very attractive idea. Also, they should stop selling wokester emails to anybody insufficiently woke at work and stop posting on social media until everybody on the planet repents and join them.
