Our New Religion of Race
July 15, 2020
… America in the era of George Floyd (may he rest in power) appears to be inventing a new religion of race.
In accordance with our culture’s declining intellectual prowess, our new creed is a very simple faith, with one black-and-white dogma:
Blacks are best and whites are worst.
In 2020, all you need to know is who are the good guys and who are the bad guys.
Everything else follows inevitably. For example, whites are sinners and must be disciplined, while blacks are saints and must be indulged.
As you may have noticed, the spelling of the word “black” has recently been subjected by the mainstream media to “reverential capitalization,” much as in Victorian translations of the Bible, pronouns that refer to God were capitalized.
The point of newspapers now capitalizing “Black” but, pointedly, not “white” is to make clear that blacks are of a higher caste than whites. An Aryan conqueror in ancient India would have immediately understood the purpose of the symbolism.
