On “Woke” White People Advertising their Shock that Racism just won a Presidency
Courtney Parker West

People like you have so overplayed the race card that it’s become meaningless. There’s been a long cultural change in this country of people embracing MLK’s dream of judging people by the content of their character. Most people still accept that as accomplished, except perhaps by some people on the fringe. Having opened our hearts, we don’t understand why there’s this gigantic industry that seems dedicated to blaming us for every woe, real or imagined. I’m sure the vast majority of people of European ancestry feel like I do: if you’re trying to get somewhere in life, I’ll lend you a hand. So why the hell are you concentrating your energies on demonizing me and the culture that has made all of our lives so much better in so many ways than it is elsewhere?
