The Daily Caller Presents The Alphabet of Racism: THE LETTER ‘B’

If you’ve been thinking lately that pretty much everything has been deemed racist these days, you are absolutely right. The word has been bandied about so much that it is rapidly losing any real meaning.

Here are 9 things beginning with the letter ‘B’ that somebody, somewhere has deemed racist.

It’s “the same kind of thing that led to the end of Reconstruction,” he told NewsOne Now host Roland Martin in May. “I seem to remember our history, when after Reconstruction, when people of color gained political presence throughout the south, they drummed up all kinds of things and indictments and accusations,” he explained.”They drove these people out of the South. And I see the same kind of efforts to discredit this president.”

In March, obscure leftist website published a whiny rant denouncing belly dancers who aren’t Arab as racist. “These women are more interested in their investment in belly dancing than in questioning and examining how their appropriation of the art causes others harm,” Randa Jarrar wrote. “To them, I can only say, I’m sure there are people who have been unwittingly racist for 15 years. It’s not too late. Find another form of self-expression.”

Then the beard came along, which is “a fashion born out of desperation but transformed into a symbol of masculine authority and white supremacy.”
