Today’s paragraphs come to us from Dennis Prager.
They are from the beginning of his latest commentary; this one about the so-called Black Lives Matter” movement, what is being done supposedly in its name, and what it is really accomplishing:
According to the make-believe world of the left, we are experiencing a great moment in American racial history. For the first time, the story goes, more whites than ever are coming to realize how racist America is, how racist cops are and how systemically racist everything in America is. Only now do many Americans understand just how racist Uncle Ben, Aunt Jemima, Ulysses Grant, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, “whitening” agents, meritocracy, Western culture, Christianity, jailing blacks and the NFL are. The bestselling book in America is about alleged “white fragility” — the term for any rational response to the irrational charge that all whites are racist.
All this is supposed to be good for America’s blacks.
But none of it is. In fact, it is all destructive.
Dennis Prager wins Paragraphs Of The Day honors for making this point and raising this extremely important issue.
