A black guy just died of Ebola in Dallas. As mentioned in a previous article, this made liberals go absolutely bananas, given that the first guy to get Ebola in America, Dr. Ken Brantly, a white man, survived his ordeal while Thomas Eric Duncan, a black man, did not.
If you listen to the left, the cause is clear: racism.
Thomas Sowell once talked about the liberal inability to think of actors in any given situation as anything other than “abstract people in an abstract world”. It goes far deeper than that, however, with the modern left. They are abstract people in an abstract world where the only thing that isn’t abstract is racism.
Picture the following: featureless, gray humanoids, all assembled in two different groups. Give one, or both, of those groups weapons. Now, do they start to kill each other? No. Not yet, lets not make them do that just yet. First, lets paint one of these groups black.
Did you do it? No, no, don’t give them huge nostrils and stop making them chant “Bix nood mofugga”. That’s insensitive.
