There are plenty of examples showing how absurd allegations of racism have become in today’s politically correct culture. Activities ranging from eating tacos to using proper grammar have elicited such accusations from race-baiting leftists.
When all else fails, those desperate to be seen as victims of bigotry resort to perpetuating hoaxes.
Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of this constant assault, however, is the troubling message inflicted upon the next generation. Such was the case when an elementary school in North Dakota scrapped a first-grade performance of the Village People’s hit song “YMCA.”
One parent complained that a child dressing up as a Native American — one of the five characters portrayed by the band — is inherently racist. According to Elaine Bolman’s protest:
“I’m not in a position to do anything for these educators; and hopefully those people that can make the right choices so all students of any culture and race won’t feel singled out or like their race is being stereotyped against.”
Cries of racism are among the hardest claims to disprove. Therefore, they remain the most common refuge of ideologues unwilling — or unable — to argue using fact and reason.
