White Hispanic is Old, White Chechen is New

Behold the post-racial future

What do George Zimmerman and Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have in common? They’re both inconvenient minorities. Liberals assumed that Zimmerman was a white man who shot a black man based on his last name. His actual appearance and background were racially inconvenient.

Liberals were counting on the Boston bombers being white men to help them ram through the next phase of gun control and white privilege diatribes. Instead they were Chechen Muslims.

If George Zimmerman had been shot by a cop, then he would have been a member of a minority group. If Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had been denied service in a restaurant, they would have been proof that we are a racist country. But now they’re inconvenient and liberal pundits on MSNBC and Salon are scurrying to explain why they’re white or as good as white.

But what is white anyway? What defines a minority? The American left built everything around their construct of race the way that their ideological forebears built around class. The polarity required two groups. The oppressed and the oppressors. Membership was simple, but vague. What made one a member of the working class? Why were revolutionaries so often dilettantes from wealthy families?

The liberal construct of whiteness raises similar questions. The problem becomes obvious when minority status is imposed or taken away based on political convenience. Bill Clinton was the first black president, but Condoleezza Rice wasn’t really black.

Joan Walsh insists that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are white because they are from the Caucasus. But then again Aryans are from India. That leaves us no choice but to conclude that India is white. If we get really vague about boundaries, we can also include much of Asia and Iran. That whitens most of the human race which now consists of White-Chinese, White-Iranians and White-Indians.

Now it’s on to Africa. If white people originated from Africa, then by Joan Walsh’s infallible Caucasian logic, retroactively, the region must be white.

And now we’ve solved the great racial problem of the world. There are no more races. Only White-Africans, White-Asians and White-Europeans. Everyone is white now and everyone is privileged and everyone is racist.

Finally we can start looking at the content of character instead of skin color. At least until the Martians land.

    KInda reminds one of the old brain-numbing claims by the Arab Lobby that Arabs cannot be anti-Semites since they are Semites

    • tagalog

      Actually, they're Hamitic, descendants of Noah's son Ham, not descendants of another son of Noah, Shem, the forefather of Semites. So once again those Islamic preservers of the ancient heritage of Araby are wrong.

      I got a kick out of yesterday's news report containing an interview with some associate of Tamerlan Tsarnaev's, where he said that Tamerlan told him that the Bible was a copy of the Koran. The Bible of course predates the Koran by at least 2000 years. At least the Old Testament does. I guess Tamerlan's imams were telling him fibs.

    Leftists are pleased just as long as western culture is destroyed. If it takes creating a silk purse from a sow's ear, so be it. Their demented ideology will not brook any accurate assessments, if they interfere with their sacred meme.

    Whatever it takes they will do, but they must realize that urban jihad will not go down well with patriotic Americans – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/16/jihad-comes-t

    Boston will be seen as a game changer.

      Actually, they are more interested in making a sow's ear from a silk purse than the more accepted route.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    It's more class warfare but we can actually gain from this because it's an opportunity to point out what we've said all along; it's about ideology and culture.

  • SarahAlbion

    Has anyone in me MSM looked at a map and seen where Chechnya is?, it is actually further to the east than Syria. In fact if you take a line north from Baghdad and follow the curvature of the Earth you'll hit Grozney.

    Its not exactly the part of "Europe" the pilgrims came from

    • tagalog

      It's where the Caucasians came from, the area around the Caucasus Mountains. And the part of Europe that the Pilgrims came from has been seen by Europeans, up to the 16th Century, as the end of the world. They don't call that place in Cornwall "Land's End" for nothing, you know.

      The term "Aryan," as far as I've been able to discern, was a concoction of Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist Party to describe white Europeans. And what is the difference if white people include Indians and Asians among their number? Of course, Indians and Asians might have a different point of view.

  • Jeff Bargholz

    Indians and Iranians are White, even though some Indians have skin as dark as human skin can be. So me Whites, like the Solomon Islanders, are physically indistinguishable from West African Blacks. Not all Whites fit the North European stereotype. Even so, the Mono-stream Media are being ridiculous with their attempt to make a couple of Chechen muslims into Whitey and the Man. Their race had nothing to do with their terrorism and evil racist Whitey is actually far less violent and criminally prone than the "people of color" America is supposed to "celebrate."

    • BicBoy

      You're an idiot. Indians are not white, though a lot are racially Caucasians.

  • tagalog

    What nonsense. The most hardened racialist, regardless of what race he/she favors, wouldn't agree with a word.

    This commentary seems as if it's just some filler for a staff writer who has a deadline to meet and no ideas.

    Greenfield's work is usually much better than this exercise in potboiling.

    There are no measurements for race but the US census ,loans,grants,affirmative action and entitlements uses them. So does the MSM.

    "The United States Census Bureau defines White people as those "having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, and within the Middle East, or North Africa and Ethnic groups of the Middle East and Ethnic groups of North Africa, respectively. "
    Like all official U.S. racial categories, "White" has a "Not Hispanic or Latino" and a "Hispanic or Latino" component, the latter consisting mostly of White Mexican Americans and white Cuban Americans. The term "Caucasian" is often used interchangeably with "White".

    BUT S Americans are not considered a race. The government counts then as an ethnicity. Well only until it comes to entitlements,grants,education /affirmative action,loans and employment , then they are considered a minority race.

    Elizabeth Warren has absolutely no Indian heritage or as tribal laws call it "blood quantum" but she built her life around being an Indian. She cannot be discredited for her false claims because the government considers race self identification .

    And to confuse the issue even more – DNA. Studies show Africans that have been in the US 3 generations or more carry only 70% African DNA because of "mixed reproduction ". Indians carry Asian and Mongol DNA

    Then there is Jewish DNA. Jews with ME and European heritage retain what is known as Jewish DNA Haplotypes in their Y (paternal) DNA – J1,J2 & E1b1b. These markers are found in 9,000 + year old remains from Israel ,the Levant,Jericho ,Iraq,Syria,Africa ,Italy ,Egypt etc. They are found today all across the world in Jews and non Jews.Jews forced to convert to other religions over the centuries passed these genes on to the new non Jews such as the Ingush,Ethiopian beta Israelis and Portugese . Obviously converts to Judaism do not carry these markers.

    One note – Europeans carry a small percent of Neanderthal DNA. Neanderthals only existed in Europe and .Israel .Some migrated into Asia and Africa .

    The government – by it's own rules- cannot designate anyones race,nor can the MSM.Only individuals and DNA can.

      If you ever get curious ,you can have basic ancestral DNA tested . Kits are available on line from multiple companies and run $80 to $500 per type mtDna (maternal) or Y DNA (paternal) .These test cover only ancient DNA not your nuclear (personal) .

      To get an idea here's an example : both my familial lines immigrated between 1819- 1845 from Germany to the US.
      DNA tracking shows paternal line originated in the R1b AMH (Atlantic Haplotype Module) coastal regions from Brittany to Denmark 2,000 + years ago. My father's German mothers line immigrated from Macedonia to Germany 500 -2,000 years ago.

      My maternal line developed in N Europe – Sweden,Norway,Denmark etc but originated in Israel 2,000 + years ago. They also lived in Scotland for 200-500 years – from genealogical records. My mother's fathers line is N European, a type considered "Viking" DNA.

      I am American .

        I've read and heard some interesting things about the Naphtali tribe's travels, out to India, up to Scandinavia, and west to Scotland. I've often wondered if hitler's Aryans, weren't ironically and unknown to him, a wandering Jewish tribe. Thanks for the info on the home DNA kits.

  • HiPlainsDrifter

    More mind numbing language gymnastics by the communists in the media to divert attention from the actual problem in ALL acts of terrorism.
    The brothers may be "white" but they're Koranimals thru and thru…
    I don't expect much to change in the way the medias covers for Islamists…
    If 9-11 failed to enlighten these dimbulbs about Muslims, nothing will…

  • Richard

    Has the Anti-American narrative of the Left these past 50 years contibuted to the Mad Dogs like the Boston bombers. Leftists need look no further than themselves to see the Boston Bombers.

  • cxt

    Logic has never been the strong point of the Left–they thrive on hysterics and hyperbole.

    Not just becasue they are highly effective means of manipulation–but in large part, because they have problems with logic and reason.

    Essentially its how children and teenagers argue–they migth not have all the facts–but they "know" they are right. ;)

  • Tim

    When humans left Africa the were Black. When they arrived in India, China, Austeralia and finally Europe they were still Black and human. For thousand of years these Blacks were the only humans on the planet. Over time, they lost their color
    I am not sure and I mean no disespect but I think that the inhabitants of North west Asia (Europe is not a continent) were the last humans to loose their melanin. So yes, the 2 brothers may be Muslim but coming rom the Caucasus montains region, they are probable more "White" than most so called White Americans

    To prevent the greenhouse from getting too hot and killing the plants,

    windows or vents can be opened to release the excess heat, thus maintaining perfect growing temperatures inside.

    Although everyone thought that their city or world would cease to exist, that was not the actuality.

    Therefore, these lights are the best option for saving energy and the global

    environment from global warming.

    After surgery is very crucial to observe your diet plan and
    exercise often. Although special diet and workout plans have been devised for sufferers of this condition, these techniques do not work for
    all people. In the first few weeks you may find that fizzy drinks cause bloating
    and discomfort too, so these are best avoided.

    Funny, considering the name of the author who posted this. Chechens are actually whiter and genetically more european than Ashkenazi Jews and Sicilians are. If Chechens aren’t white, then jews and sicilians aren’t either. In other words, in the real world, it’s not possible to consider people who look like stereotypical sicilians or ashkenazi jews as white, but then say that chechens are not white, the phenotypical overlap would be too great. Chechens/Caucasians, Ashkenazi Jews, and Southern Italians are are Wogs, not true whites, but rather mixed with middle eastern ancestry.

    • Dusquene Whistler

      All whites are Caucasian but not all Caucasians are white. Caucasian describes shape of the skull(among other features) and white is a skin tone.
