The media is outraged that President Trump condemned “all types of racism”.
But that’s exactly what the media won’t condemn. The New York Times’ defense of Sarah Jeong, its new editorial board member, despite her racist comments about white people, is only the latest such incident.
Obama and other CBC members got a pass for their meetings with Louis Farrakhan. And Women’s March leaders Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour, and Black Lives Matter figures like Shaun King, got their own pass over Farrakhan.
Condemning all racism is the right thing to do.
But the media insists on pretending that some types of racism are more legitimate or less noteworthy than others. And so it rejects the idea of condemning racism across the board.
President Trump is right to condemn all racism because… all racism matters.
