Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter said it beautifully:
The two groups most fixated on race in America today are skinheads and Liberals.
Conservatives rarely speak of race, and don’t think about it much either, having become the true Tribe of Inclusion many decades ago. Leftists*, on the other hand, think of little else. Race is their obsession, their Kool-Aid and daily cudgel.
It’s their attention-getter and way to weasel out of arguments that are going south, as theirs so easily do. Count the word racist coming shrilly from one of them, and you’ll realize how often their arguments lack logic, style or even decent manners.
Alas, the worst of their breed control academia, the news media and showbiz, which means their influence scandalously outweighs their actual numbers on the American scene.
Most of these race-obsessed folks are white, which brings us to today’s topic: Their War on White Guys. Yes, this makes no sense. It is a bizarre self-loathing, a kind of cannibalism.
White people are the devils to white Leftists, especially their women, but not white people in general. White men particularly, and old white men specifically.
White women get a pass because, being female, they automatically rate as perpetually “oppressed people” to Leftists.
To today’s Leftists, all vexations, past and present, can be laid at the feet of Old White Men, a category that includes no decent people whatsoever.
But Old White Men include Abe Lincoln who emancipated the slaves; Gen. Eisenhower, who liberated Europe from Nazi tyranny; Albert Schweitzer, the medical missionary who won a Nobel Peace Prize; President Johnson who signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
The list is endless, but you know that.
Moving away from individuals, let’s consider who developed the best parts of today’s world, the areas where liberty and democracy reign, and the highest standards of living exist.
That would be most of North America, Western Europe and those marsupial outposts of Australia and New Zealand.
This trio, this Perfect Storm of Positives (liberty, democracy, high standard of living) was not born in Africa. It did not dawn in Latin America or in Asia. It was developed in Europe and North America by white people — male, female, young and old.

* Right-wingers like Coulter have demonized the honorable word Liberal. It is unfortunate. I prefer the more accurate term left-winger or, simply, Leftist. It’s someone who chases a perfect world that has never existed and never will.
(Note: The two photos of white guys show we are a diverse group, and any Leftist will tell you that diversity is to be pursued, though the fewer white guys the better.
