Over at Tony’s Kansas City, a Mr. Botello has made quite the hullabaloo about Whites being unable to be the victims of Hate Crimes…
The context being an unfortunate occurrence at East High School. Too make a long story short, a young man of 13 – white and 13 years of age – was set on fire by two black youths- WHO WERE ALLEGEDLY CALLING HIM “WHITEY” among other epithets.
Mr. Botello is of the opinion that this cant be a hate crime because racism is “institutional” and since whites are the “majority” and have the “power.”
In all due respect, sir, what a bunch of crap!
Last time I checked, humans are capable of hate regardless of race, creed or color…
So where am I coming from and what right do I have to this opinion? I’m WHITE, almost six feett tall and a lawyer- which im sure places me into the position of being one of the “Master Race” according to Mr. Botello.
But there’s a catch…
I’m JEWISH – among arguably the most hated and enslaved minorities of all time. Jews were in bondage until 1945!
All the way back to ancient Egypt my people have been trod upon and discriminated against.
And what about all the people who think we run the world?
What a joke!
Hollywood and scrap metal, maybe…
And since I blend in so well- I’ve even been privileged to hear anti-semitism to my face.
So, sorry, Mr. Botello, but what happened to that kid from East High was a Hate Crime.
It only happened because he was white. And all your “Critical Race Theory” does not change that fact. Blacks can hate and discriminate as well as Whites. Not to mention Mexicans and “La Raza,” which means the “Race.”
However since you’re a “minority” I guess that makes it OK.
Jews are one out of 500 people on the Planet. That’s what I call a minority a minority. Hispanics by comparison make up more than 15 percent of the US population.
But instead of pointing fingers and exchanging “Poor Me” stories- maybe we need to just all try and get along…
I love you Tony and the pics of Jordan Carver that adorn your blog, but you’re dead wrong on this one.
Hate is hate…
