I have surrendered. I want to be “with it,” part of the “in crowd.” I want to be “cool.”
And these days in America, that means you must recognize that white is out, not just out but the fount of all things evil.
Since identity studies thugs invaded universities decades back and have now frozen the academic mind by edict, and the effects of that have filtered down to all levels of education and out into the popular culture, one must embrace that white is out, and brown and black is in.
Yellow isn’t particularly in because Asians get good grades and focus on personal responsibility, muddling the issue entirely. No matter. They still get points simply for not being white, though it remains far “cooler” to be brown or black.
Christianity is out too. But if you simply must love some kind of God (God help you), make it Allah. Allah is “in” and very “cool.” He is swarthy, not white.
No matter that it was primarily whites who invented liberal democracy and the capitalist system that drives the modern world with its high standard of living, yes, Liberty itself. You must put that out of your mind. It is not “cool” to dwell on it.
It is unacceptable thinking.
And no matter that Christianity was the ribbon on the pretty package, with its devotion to values, self-sacrifice and delayed gratification.
Yes, white is out and so is Christianity. Brown and black is in, and so is atheism and acceptance of Mohammedism if you gotta say something good about religion.
Oh, being a Jew is out too. They shoot Mohammedans.
No matter too that the African, Latino and Mideastern worlds have long been violent, bloody and chaotic. Forget that. It’s not “cool” to notice.
I have been out of step. I recognize that now. I must get with the program. I am starting with The Unseen Moon, which has been an offensive white page for too long, an effrontery. But now it is brown, sensual and modern.
I hope you like my new skin tone, and that you like me too.
