That’s Mighty Progressive Of You

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The heated debate continues over the firing of NYT science writer Donald McNeil for uttering the most infamous word in the entire English language :

McNeil’s ouster came nearly two years after the incident that precipitated it. While chaperoning high school students on a pricey trip to Peru, the science reporter responded to a question from a student about whether one of her classmates should have been suspended for using the n-word. In the process, he uttered the offending syllables himself.

Sacre Bleu! The “n-word”!! The Times dismissal was not without its customary sanctimoniousness:

“We do not tolerate racist language regardless of intent,” Dean Baquet, the paper’s executive editor, told staff in an email. 

Apparently “intent” only matters if you are a former Secretary of State running for President. In which case it means everything.

Next, the Old Gray Lady (the NYT, not Hilz) spiked Brett Steven’s (nominal conservative) column defending his former colleague. Quite the furor over one niggling little word I’d say. But stranger still is the silence of the NYT staffers – many of whom openly admire the CCP’s ability to autocratically apply their diktats to force the economy (and people) to do as they wish – on their Chinese overlords racism. Which is to say the least, not so woke.

China’s ruling Communist Party tries to promote an image of unity with African nations as fellow developing economies. But state broadcaster China Central Television has faced criticism over using blackface to depict African people in previous New Year broadcasts.

Gracious me! Chinese people wearing blackface! That’s offensive in just so many ways.


China's biggest Lunar New Year TV show aired on Thursday has been accused by viewers of racism for including Chinese performers (pictured) in blackface to look African

That’s mighty progressive of them. But then, it is the year of the Ox.

Footnote: the Chinese are very busy in Africa, building railroads and the like. If I were the people of Africa I would be quite wary of my new little yeller friends in Beijing. If Africans still blame Americans for the sins of our fathers over 200 years ago they’re really going to hate what the CCP has in mind for them in this century.
