Politically Correct Racism: UWM and “The View”
In the first case, there were two cases of suspicious behavior near the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus. How did UWM administrators respond? They sent out an e-mail warning students about the situation. They described the suspect as follows:
The suspect in both of these cases was described as a white male, in his mid-20s, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 185 pounds, brown hair and blue eyes. He drives a blue Buick sedan with Wisconsin plates.What’s odd about that? They included the suspect’s race.
Why is that odd? Because they routinely refuse to reveal the race of black suspects.
UWM student Kyle Duerstein, in Frontpage Milwaukee, asks:
What’s the moral of the situation? If UWM’s administration wants to be idiotically “politically correct” by excluding important identifying characteristics of black suspects, at least be consistent, and leave it out for white suspects as well. Better yet, why not just send out all information that you have available, regardless of whose feelings you might hurt?Of course, given that the people who get the UWM e-mails (and anybody attentive to media outlets that are similarly politically correct) will simply begin to assume that if the race of a suspect is not given, the person is black.
And that would be a sound assumption.
The other case involves the fact that politically correct race hustlers can’t admit that the Duke Lacrosse players were the innocent victims.
First, there is Eugene Kane, Milwaukee’s own journalistic race monger.
Eugene Kane says the Duke lacrosse players bear responsibility for their own nightmareJust is bad are the airheads on “The View,” who insisted that it was fair to prejudge the Duke athletes, since they are white, and “white boys” do things like that.
That’s what he told an individual I know who talked to him about the case. He thinks because they hired a stripper, they somehow deserved what they got. That’s sort of a gender twist on the old “the victim deserved it” argument.
He also thinks the “white” cops and DA are mostly responsible. The accuser doesn’t even make his list.
And if they didn’t actually rape that woman, they were probably guilty of doing something like that.
