We make fun of the amount of ‘whataboutery’ in today’s political world, but ZOMG, this article from The New York Times so deserves it. Imagine if a white woman wrote this article and turned the tables on the races included … there would be protests in the streets and buildings would burn.
Opinion: Can My Children Be Friends With White People? https://t.co/BRfO6tRVuW
— The New York Times (@nytimes) November 12, 2017
From the NYT:
As against our gauzy national hopes, I will teach my boys to have profound doubts that friendship with white people is possible. When they ask, I will teach my sons that their beautiful hue is a fault line. Spare me platitudes about how we are all the same on the inside. I first have to keep my boys safe, and so I will teach them before the world shows them this particular brand of rending, violent, often fatal betrayal.
Just. Vile. If the Left’s goal moving forward is going back to their roots and segregating people based on skin color they have NO business being in any sort of elected capacity in this country.
NYT publishes hate of closed-minded bigot who stereotypes an entire people & teaches their children you can’t trust people of another race.

My honest guess is no, because you wouldn’t allow it. Must suck to be racist.

Can you imagine telling your children they can’t be someone’s friend because of the color of their skin? In 2017?????!!!
It’s amazing that your children would have any friends at all being taught such hatred. Try teaching them to be good people and you’ll be amazed at how that’s reciprocated, by people of all colors.
