Marc Lamont Hill finds racism in reaction to Bruce Jenner’s ‘womanhood!’

Social media exploded Monday with the release of Vanity Fair’s cover featuring “Caitlyn” Jenner, but not everyone was supportive.

That’s because thinking “Caitlyn” Jenner is pretty is racist.

That’s according to Moorehouse College professor and CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill, who complained that the widespread support for Jenner’s decision to go public with a female sexual identity in Vanity Fair only showed how racist the American standard of beauty really is.

Even when it’s liberals doing the judging.

In a series of tweets, Hill argued that acceptance and praise for Jenner is only widespread because she conforms to white “Eurocentric” standards of beauty as they are accepted by “cisgender” people — or “cis” as he abbreviated it.

(“Cisgender,” for those who don’t follow such things, is the PC term for people who identify as the sex they’re born with. The rest of us call that “normal.”)

Unsurprisingly, many people seemed upset that Hill had decided to use Jenner’s cover spread for a conversation about racism and white privilege, instead of transgender acceptance.

Hill tried to walk some of his comments back by pointing out that he wasn’t upset with Jenner.

Apparently social media users can’t even support progressive causes without offending other liberals.
