The sun is racist! Two major liberal papers agree the ‘Deplorable Solar Eclipse of 2017’ cuts out black people

The sun is racist, y’all. The proof is the “Deplorable Solar Eclipse of 2017.”

Leftist grievance mongers are whining that the total solar eclipse was racist. Why? Because the “path of totality,” or the main path of the eclipse, passed mostly through states that voted for President Trump.

Leading the race-baiting rant is left-wing Brooklyn Law professor, Alice Ristroph, who railed against the racist sun (that fascist neo-Nazi!) for shining across states where hardly any black people live. First off, that is not true. But why let facts get in the way of a moonbat narrative?

“It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people,” Ristroph wrote in a mind-numbing, 4,500-word post in The Atlantic. “Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system. Still, an eclipse chaser is always tempted to believe that the skies are relaying a message.”

Ristroph detailed how the solar eclipse started in Oregon, which is mostly white, and then cut through pro-Trump states Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri. “From Kansas, the eclipse goes to Missouri, still mostly bypassing black people,” she bloviated.

As insane and pseudo-intellectual as The Atlantic’s puff piece is, it’s not the only left-wing media outlet that has slammed the solar eclipse’s inherent racism.

On August 1, the Boston Globe (no links for losers) asked: “Is the eclipse throwing shade at Clinton supporters? The path of ideal viewing spots for this month’s highly-anticipated total solar eclipse cuts overwhelmingly through places that voted for President Trump.”

This kind of eye-popping hysteria and lunacy is precisely why Trump won the 2016 election, and why he will win again in 2020. People are fed up with the anti-Trump politicization of everything, from entertainment to sports to cosmic occurrences.

Meanwhile, Twitter reacted by noting that it would have been hard for the eclipse to not cut across pro-Trump territory, since he won most of the electoral map.

In other news, singer Bonnie Tyler performed her 1983 hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart” during the solar eclipse aboard Royal Caribbean’s Total Eclipse cruise. The cruise was in the path of the totality during her performance.  Enjoy.
