In the latest MSNBC rant, its host were caught on camera celebrating that not one of the five nominees being interviewed by the judiciary committee that day was a white man.
Instead, all five were women of color, including one woman who if she gets the position would be the first Muslim American woman on the court.
While firsts should be celebrated, the MSNBC leaders delighted that there were no white men among the nominees. At what point do these actions become racism—only in reverse?
Imagine two white news hosts cheering that all of the judiciary nominees WERE white men. That wouldn’t go so well. But why is it perfectly “woke” if it’s the other way around?
It’s also interesting one host referred to one of the nominees as a Muslim American. When did we begin labelling Americans by religion? Isn’t that illegal when it comes to employment or politics?
What if a host showed the same excitement over a Jewish American or Christian American nominated to the judiciary?
Silly old me thought the nation’s leaders should nominate the people who are the best at their job rather than based on the color of a person’s skin. I think Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. may have said something about this as well.
Diversity can be a great thing, but let’s not trade one form of discrimination for another. Check it out for yourself and see what you think.
