How to test a white conservative to see if they are racist

Let's take a look at the left's accusations of racism
Let’s take a look at the left’s accusations of racism

I’ve noticed that a lot of people on the left like to cry “racism” whenever anyone disagrees with them about any of their policies. If a conservative opposes Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, banning all guns, infanticide or gay marriage, the response from the left is always to cry “racism”. As if there is no content at all to the conservative worldview. Let’s take a look at this.

Here is a Daily Signal column by famous Jewish conservative Dennis Prager:

So here is a way to show it is a lie.

Ask any white conservative, including one who supports Trump, the following three questions:

1). Do you have more in common with, and are you personally more comfortable in the company of, a white leftist or a black conservative?

2). Would you rather have nine white leftists or nine black conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court?

3). Would you rather your child marry a black Christian conservative or a white non-Christian liberal?

A white racist would prefer the whites in each case.

I have asked these questions of thousands of Trump supporters at lectures and on my radio show.

Not once has a white Trump-supporting conservative said he or she would be more comfortable in the presence of a white leftist than a black conservative, or would prefer an all-white liberal Supreme Court to an all-black conservative Supreme Court.

Not once has a white Christian conservative said he or she would prefer his or her child marry a white non-Christian liberal rather than a black Christian conservative.

If you’re an honest leftist, this should present a powerful challenge to your belief that all white conservatives are racist.

Now, I’m not white (and one day in the future I’ll be revealing more about me and my story), and I talk to white conservatives all the time. They are tired of being called “racist” when trying to make the case for conservative views, e.g. – school vouchers, legal gun ownership, protection of the unborn, etc. Since I agree with them, they want to grab me and bring me to their debates and have me explain all the reasons why I hold the conservative beliefs that I do – just to take skin color out of the equation. Because their reasons are my reasons. We read the same people: Thomas Sowell, John Lott, Mark Levin, Victor Davis Hanson, Francis J. Beckwith, Ryan T. Anderson, etc. My arguments and evidence are the same as theirs.

The non-racism of white conservatives should be no surprise to anyone. Who is the favorite economist of white conservatives? Thomas Sowell, a black economist. And who is the favorite Senator of white conservatives? Ted Cruz, a Cuban lawyer. And who is the favorite radio show host of white conservatives? Ben Shapiro, an orthodox Jew. And who is their favorite Supreme Court Justice? The most conservative one, Clarence Thomas – who is black. And who leads the favorite think tank of white conservatives? Kay Cole James, a black woman, who is president of the Heritage Foundation. And white conservatives love legal immigrants, and love to hear their stories of becoming citizens by following the rules. They love to hear anyone express love for America.

White conservatives couldn’t care less about another conservative’s skin color. Or sex, for that matter. They only care about one thing: that the person loves the Constitution, the Declaration, the Bill of Rights, and the founding ideals of the country as a whole.

It’s actually the secular left that is obsessed with dividing people into groups and making them feel like victims. They want to push these groups into supporting a bigger secular government, higher taxes and less liberty. A successful black conservative and a legal immigrant would be their worst nightmare.

Update: just this morning, one of the white conservatives in my office, who was really upset that Trump is getting blamed for gun violence, invited me and a white progressive co-worker for lunch next Monday. He was trying to make me talk to the progressive in the office, and I was. But we were going long, so now we’re going to lunch!

  1. Intersectionality says they are victims of the white-he-devil, and since they think like white he devil, it’s proof that the white he devil is even more racist!

    Leftist ideology is insane at the end of the day, but it’s meant to create chaos so order can be implemented brutally.

    1. They seem to be suspicious of any ideas that makes them personally responsible for their failures. They want to choose fun and thrills in the short term and blame everyone else when they don’t get the goodies of the hard working self denial people. That’s what this is really about. Loser blaming others people for their own bad choices. This is America, if you choose wisely, you win.

      1. I agree with all except the last sentence. Hyperactive minorities (political groups) are politically effective when there is no structured opposition.

        Right now, there is no organized opposition to any leftist policy advance. There are groups here and there fighting individual battles, but they will lose the war.
        Unless a coalition rises up, the left wins. Grassroots is not sustainable. We need $$$, employees, etc. current political organizations aren’t interested in actually combating commies.

  2. Larry Elder (black conservative) wrote a book a few years back titled The Ten Things You Can’t Say In America. The only one I remember (and it leaped off the page) was this:

    Blacks are more racist than whites.

  3. I just had lunch with a friend (white, conservative Christian), who is so excited about what she’s finding as she reads Thomas Sowell’s The Quest for Cosmic Justice. Another friend of the dame demographic just finished Basic Economics.

    The number of white friends we know who hold Voddie Baucham’s teaching in the highest regard is far more than among our black family and friends.

    The reality is that there are people who are moved by facts and ideas, and those swayed by media propaganda and feelings first and foremost. Feelings and compassion have a place in our lives. Jesus was moved with compassion.

    Too often, however, our culture confuses expressions of feeling that signal virtue or assuage personal guilt with true compassion. Then they go along with things that do more harm than good out a soft paternalism that is far more racist than they realize.

    And when people like my husband and I disagree, we are “out of touch” at best, or just plain old’ Uncle Toms.

    1. Yes, Thomas Sowell and Voddie Baucham are great men, and it’s good for their works to be red and promoted. There is actual meat to their thinking that is the antifote to so much of the feelings-based worldviews of today. To me reading Thomas Sowell books is like getting water in the desert.

    2. Maybe that’s what C.S. Lewis meant when he said that the action of pity will remain, but the passion of pity will not.
