The Next Step in Racism – Now Crosswalk Signs are Part of White Oppression

Redstate; Posted at 3:45 pm on July 9, 2020 by Brad Slager

 

Cities demand that we walk like a (white) man.

The life of a leftist journalist is a curiosity to behold. Their job appears to be one of being on a never-ending quest to find social aggrievement and cause for outrage in the most benign and unintentional aspects of our life. In this case we have a writer who was literally looking for signs of oppression, and managed to find them in an area that is rather pedestrian — literally. 

Over at Medium.com writer David Kaufman struggled to make himself relevant in this era where EVERYone gets to be relevant, so long as you are out there hectoring about racial abuses. David must have been feeling left out of all of the fun, so while he was out walking he hit upon his entry into the Triggered Class. He was about to cross a city street, waiting for the automated cue to permit safe access to the opposite curb, and then there it was — the indication of white supremacy, flashing before him.

But as a Black dad, I was struck by the language at play. How is it possible that well into the 21st century, parents all over Manhattan — well-meaning, #BLM-marching parents — are teaching their children to ask “little White men” for permission to cross the street? And why doesn’t this seem to bother them?

Yes, Kaufman has become triggered by the illuminated stick figure we all are familiar with in urban areas. Something everything thinking person would not give a second thought to has Kaufman ruminating to an extent of seeing an electronic hate-crime exhibited on every street corner. This is where we are as a society these days; the benign and the innocuous all has to have a hidden, pervasive meaning behind it. This is no way for a society to function.

<snip>

And why is the website called "MEDIUM.COM"? &nbsp;Because it's Not Well Done!

I've noticed something even more insidious. Where I live, the crosswalk stick-figure is an ORANGE MAN.

Here's an idea. Why not paint the crosswalks the same color as the road surface. Makes about as much sense doesn't it. :huh:

So in his quest to find white supremacy, the idiot finds the science behind the selection of colorizing, and instead of teaching his kids that, he changes the wording.

 

Typical dumbass leftist.

Just when you think this hypersensitive stupidity couldn't get any more extreme, somebody out there proves you wrong.

I'm now firmly convinced that such people can't sleep a wink at night, unless they've looked high and low for the most absolute, meaningless, trivial thing to become shocked, traumatized, and outraged over.

A normal, rational person sees a crosswalk sign for what it is. A symbol of contrasting colors which makes you observe it better, and nothing more than that.

Who IS this @ss?   Wikipedia says that David Kaufman is an occasional writer for the Financial Times, the New York Slime, and the Fox Business Network.  He received a BA degree in Sociology and Near East Studies from Brandeis University and a Master's Degree in Journalism from New York University.   In the linked-link article, Kaufman relates that he asked the traffic control engineers why the little man in the crosswalk signal is white.  They told him it's because a white LED shines the brightest and the reason they use an icon of a pedestrian is that WALK-DON'T WALK is not comprehensible to people who cannot read English or cannot read at all.  

And, his conclusion?  That crosswalk signals are racist.

Hmmm.... Wonder what will happen if someone tells him the best light to use is white light.

Really, these are truly first world problems.  I mean, how bad can this guy, or anyone he knows, life be if he is worried about the color of the lights in the street signs?  Seriously?  Maybe he should volunteer some of his time working with homeless veterans, or have his kids help out at a food bank.   You know, something that is really meaningful!

Hey, I've got a new "outrage" for this moron: Vanilla! Ever seen vanilla beans before they make it into ice cream? It's dark brown, or even black:

So how come when they make vanilla ice cream, they make it white????

RACISM!!! That's the ONLY possible answer!!

If this writer understood any physics, he'd have a fit over the phenomenon called Blackbody Radiation. https://astronomy.swin.edu.au/cosmos/b/Blackbody+Radiation

Although he would probably feel better after reading this: A black body or blackbody is an idealized physical body that absorbs all incident electromagnetic radiation, regardless of frequency or angle of incidence. The name "black body" is given because it absorbs radiation in all frequencies, not because it only absorbs: a black body can emit black-body radiation. On the contrary, a white body is one with a "rough surface that reflects all incident rays completely and uniformly in all directions." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_body

Blacks can absorb AND emit, whites can only reflect. That's gotta be racist, somehow!

Remember that Dallas city councilman that got into high dudgeon when someone made the comment about money disappearing into a black hole?  He immediately responded with "WHITEHOLE," and went into some tirade about racism.

The skin lightener of the dessert world. Resist we much! But I guess a fudge sundae is OK as you're covering up the evil whiteness with dark brown fudge sauce. Just like the black man will rise up over his white oppressors!

He was upset they were being niggardly with their money.

Dark fudge was out there inventing new desserts before white vanilla was even a concept!
