"We, as a nation, need to start racially profiling liberal writers"

Jim Goad, "Let’s Hope the Next Bomber is a Liberal Journalist" (Taki's Magazine, April 22, 1013), excerpts [advisory: strong language in the non-excerpted portions]:
... Those on the “right” tended to suspect Muslims, and those on the “left” were fairly wetting themselves with gleeful anticipation that it was one of those gun-toting, tax-resisting, rural Angry White Males that has served as their cultural “other” and chief movie villain for generations now.

Since I’m a white male and not a Muslim, I don’t quite cotton to such rank defamation and stereotyping.

Michael Moore stopped gnawing on his Flintstones-sized rack of barbecued ribs long enough to note that being white would help you escape scrutiny as a bombing suspect. Moore would know something about being white, seeing as he owns a sprawling mansion in an area that is estimated to be 98% white and has no black residents.

Racial witch-hunter Tim Wise, who looks like the bastard love child of an albino beaver and Dr. Evil, allegedly lives in an area that is 97% white and 0% black; if that’s true, then he, too, ought to know a little about the “white privilege” against which he’s constantly railing.
