Racism has lost it’s meaning


The Oxford English Dictionary‘s first recorded utterance of the word racism was by a man named Richard Henry Pratt in 1902. Pratt was railing against the evils of racial segregation.

“Segregating any class or race of people apart from the rest of the people kills the progress of the segregated people or makes their growth very slow. Association of races and classes is necessary to destroy racism and classism.”

Since Pratt first coined the term 115 years ago, the word ‘racism’ has become a useless descriptor over hyped by intellectually stunted academics, democrats and radical leftists who for use of a better term, are ridiculous parodies of angry cartoon characters. Racism has become a crutch for the left who’ve run out of cogent arguments.

John Bunzel, a former member of the US Commission on Civil Rights, wrote that President Clinton’s Advisory Board on Race should call for an end of the “corrupted usage” of the word “racist” especially when used as an “accusation” or “smear word” saying:

[It] breeds bitterness and polarization, not a spirit of pragmatic reasonableness in confronting our difficult problems. [1]

Thomas Sowell gave, in my opinion, the best commentary of the use of the word ‘racism’ saying: 

The word ‘racism’ is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything – and demanding evidence makes you a ‘racist.’ [2]

The simple fact, for most people, the word has been used and abused for so long it’s become  no more than a banal exclamation for the inarticulate who have no credible argument when using the word. 

You will note than many times the word racist will be applied to conservative blacks by white liberals under the guise of attacking racism which makes no sense – but then it’s hard to make sense of anything the left says or does.

This false labeling used to describe anyone who disagrees with the radical left agenda is freely used by the mainstream media who seem enamored of the term whether its application is valid or not.

The mainstream media’s over use of the word expose their hidden racist agenda against blacks and other minorities intelligent enough to have opinions that do not coincide with that of the wealthy left liberal globalist elites who control the mainstream propaganda organs….WFMracism
