Apropos of Steve Sailer's post on the white woman who called cops on the black bird watcher, she's been fired.
As the Washington Post described it, the dust-up was "less than 24 hours later after a video of their exchange went online, she has lost her dog, her anonymity, and her job—the latest incident in a long, too-familiar pattern of white people calling the police on black people for any number of everyday activities: Barbecuing. Playing golf. Swimming at a pool."
A black birdwatcher asked a white woman to leash her dog in Central Park. She called the police instead. https://t.co/7sn31TAwWj— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) May 26, 2020
But given what went on—a black fellow's asking a white woman to leash her dog—let's reverse the situation. What if she were birding in the park and had asked the black man to leash his dog.
It still would have been, as the Post reported, "the latest incident in a long, too-familiar pattern of white people calling the police on black people for any number of everyday activities: Barbecuing. Playing golf. Swimming at a pool."
The Post simply would have included "walking the dog," even though the black man would have been "walking" him without a leash ... that is, letting it run free, just like the white woman did.
In this case, the white woman was wrong, of course. But if the situation had been reversed, she would have been right.
And it wouldn't have made a difference. She still would have lost her dog and her job and become subject to the usual Two Minutes Hate.
