What If They Gave a Protest and Nobody Came?
Funny and sad article in the Washington Times today, reporting on how frustrated the civil rights establishment is at the refusal of immigrant minorities to act like victims. “Black politicians … haven’t been able to get [black immigrants] to buy into what white America is all about, about what white privilege is,” complains William Spriggs, executive director of the National Urban League Institute for Opportunity and Equality. “Many immigrants are not even aware of the ‘color line’ that prevents minorities from excelling, other panelists said in amazement.” Oh, how tragic it is to have a false consciousness of opportunity. The Times reports that “about 40 people” showed up at the grandiloquently titled “Spirit of Democracy Symposium on Diversity.”
