Novelist’s violent wishes exemplify ‘progressive’ paradox on guns and more

How very “progressive.”

Continuing with the trend of privileged “progressives” blaming bigotry where alternative explanations for inequities exist, Nobel, Pulitzer and Presidential Freedom prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison uttered a shocking but nonetheless revealing set of criteria for declaring racism over. The exchange came in an interview The Telegraph conducted earlier this month with the 84-year-old Morrison in her lower Manhattan apartment.

“People keep saying, ‘We need to have a conversation about race,’” Morrison said. “This is the conversation. I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back. And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman. Then when you ask me, ‘Is it over?’, I will say yes.”

This is what she wants to see? Cops killing other human beings based solely on their race? Women being sexually assaulted, again, all based on race?

How very “progressive.”

It’s not like Morrison ever personally experienced the travails of being truly oppressed. She grew up middle class, had educational opportunities to attend prestigious universities, and was welcomed into academia and then the publishing world. She has since been recognized with acceptance, honors and rewards. Most of humanity would pray to have things that tough.

But the thing is, by Morrison’s own criteria, the racism problem is “over.”

She must not have heard about “Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old … shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama.” She must not have heard about Dillon Taylor.
