The KKK isn’t Reading The New York Times Op-Ed Pages

It is interesting to note how often you segregate white women and men in your article. Why do Americans spend so much time trying to separate the world into “them vs us”? Do you realize that most of the world is made up of radically different ethnic groups that simply cannot be categorized as black or white? Further, it is kind of offensive to group anyone non-white as “black”. What is “white” anyway?

Lastly, I find it hard to believe that there is a grand conspiracy by “rich white people” to screw over the poor. In my experience, everyone (be they rich, poor, white, yellow, brown or black) is out to make a living for themselves and their family.

Everyone has someone richer, and poorer than them. Everyone is trying to move up, and getting screwed by someone down the line (if nothing else, than by the government). In short: there is no grand plan.

There is just human nature, and this is found across all cultures and social classes, regardless of how black/white, rich or poor the individual is. If this wasn’t the case, socialism would have worked … somewhere. But never did.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
