I feature this article about the Left’s war on whiteness mainly due to the introduction (which I broke up into three paragraphs for easier reading) from the editors at FrontPageMag.com. It immediately follows this lede:
John Perazzo’s new pamphlet unveils the colossal myth of “white privilege.”
Introduction: In recent decades, the Left has gained a nearly monopolistic control of the key institutions that shape the American people’s worldview: the mass media, the entertainment industry, the schools, and many of the mainline churches.
Consequently, these institutions have been turned into conduits through which leftist perspectives are transmitted to a highly receptive public. One of these perspectives is the notion that white people are both the cause and the embodiment of virtually every societal ill afflicting our country. Until “whiteness” can be either quarantined or destroyed outright, says the Left, “people of color” will continue to fare less well in school, earn less money, and be incarcerated at higher rates than their white counterparts.
