During a recent interview with The Telegraph, novelist, editor, professor and Nobel laureate Toni Morrison listed what must occur before she is willing to admit that racism has ended.
“I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back,” she explained. “And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman.”
“Then when you ask me, ‘Is it over?’, I will say yes.”
Last March, two Albuquerque police officers shot homeless unarmed white man James Boyd in the back. And three years ago, black Mobile police officer Trevis Austin killed 18-year-old unarmed white teenager Gilbert Collar.
Are these two closely related examples good enough for you, Miss Morrison, or do you still require that “a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back”?
As for the desire “to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman,” I find it exceptionally difficult to believe that white men who rape black women are not convicted and tossed into jail like all other rapists.
Do you have any evidence to back up this claim, Miss Morrison?
And oh, according to data pulled by conservative commentator Pat Buchanan, in 2007 black men committed “14,000 [sexual] assaults on white women,” while white men committed ZERO sexual assaults on black women.
If these type of statistics hold up yearly, then it would suggest that black-on-white rape is far more prevalent than the alleged phenomenon of white-on-black rape you brought up. This is not to insinuate that white-on-black rape does not occur, because such an insinuation would of course be ludicrous. This is simply to say that you are talking out of your ass.
Anyway. I specifically mentioned her status as a Nobel laureate because I just find it exceptionally hard to fathom that someone with such amazing credentials could say something so utterly despicable and stupid …
