It would be highly felicitous if utilities could be surreptitiously loaded on all devices to convert media euphemisms to clarity. “Civil Rights” is one term I’d particularly enjoy seeing forthrightly displayed. For CR is simple American short-hand for the alchemy that turns white liberties into black prerogatives. It’s not your right to decide with whom you associate, live beside, or allow into what is definitely not your country. Nor are you at liberty to freely choose the songs you sing, jokes you tell, opinions you express, or whether you’ll be rendered prostrate by a Good Boy. Those are the prerogatives of others. Facilitating that ongoing conversion is the sole function of what we blithely call civil rights.
And civil rights still has a long distance to travel. At least that is the boilerplate qualifier inserted into every mainstream piece on this grand engagement. So much still to accomplish. “Like what?” I routinely query the stoic fonts. And in the company of sobriety never receive a response. Though it would be gratifying to hear others in possession of a larger mega-phone than this blog press for an answer. What is the still-so-far-away end-state? And what steps are required to achieve it? I doubt we’ll receive an honest response from anyone but Farrakhan. Though always leaving the presumption of an unspoken more dangling like rotted meat on a hook is something I find less palatable than even the good minister’s bracing candor.
And while no one is much talking about civil rights’ ultimate destination, we can certainly note its direction of travel. And its latest highway flop-house is nowhere of surpise to readers here. Enjoy this article on the newest faces of Hate. They’re getting better all the time.
University of Alabama sorority slammed for ‘racially-homogeneous’ recruitment film
University of Alabama’s Alpha Phi uploaded the video to YouTube
Was used to attract new members and has been viewed 500,000 times
Shows the 72 sorority sisters partying in their sprawling sorority house
An op-ed in an Alabama newspaper said it is ‘reductive and objectifying’
Others claim it skirts the issue of diversity in the college Greek system
Those whose loins are caught in mid-gird for the inevitable racist climax, may begin a measured exhalation. There is none. No ****** on a bus. No micro-aggression. Not even a painful past. Just these damning photos.
I found it all so macabre, my eyes could barely be forced aside. I would imagine battalions of male high school seniors are presently imploring their parents to never cast them into such a den of undiversity.
But the point requires little belaboring. A sorority at the University of Alabama is being (internationally) attacked simply for being white. Homogenous. It was not long ago at all that such a thing wasn’t even conceivable. Civil-rights is moving at a brisk pace. And though I’d enjoy hearing it put to the record, no one much needs to wonder where the vehicle is going as tires role over innocent college girls. Dissolving the homogeneity of one other organization is even more important. For the smallest groups bear the greatest hate.
