‘Whiteness is a pandemic’: Journos fuel racism against whites after massage parlor shooting

Multiple media outlets and media figures responded to the deadly mass shooting at three Atlanta massage parlors by a white suspect by publishing or saying glaringly racist things about white people, with one outlet describing whiteness as a “pandemic.”

Over at The Root, a far-left magazine ostensibly geared toward the black community, a contributor who also writes for The New York Times and has books featured on Amazon published a blatantly racist piece titled “Whiteness Is a Pandemic.”

In the piece, Damon Young automatically assumed the shootings were committed because of anti-Asian hatred and then used this unsubstantiated assumption to blame the actions on former President Donald Trump, Trump supporters and all white people.

“The former president, and the party of the former president, can and should be blamed for this and the sudden increase of racist violence against Asian Americans. The line doesn’t stop there, though. It extends back 400 years and has tentacles clawing everywhere white supremacy exists here, in America, which is everywhere,” he wrote.

As of Thursday morning, the motive for the suspect’s spree hadn’t yet been definitely determined, though all signs pointed to misogyny, not racism. Young’s piece sparked backlash online.

Either way, Young’s stunning chutzpah was not appreciated, particularly in light of the fact that the vast majority of recent anti-Asian crimes have reportedly been committed by blacks.

In fact, according to 2018 crime data from the Department of Justice, black-on-Asian crime is far, far, far more common than Asian-on-black crime.

Amid the anti-Asian violence of recent weeks, it appears not a single mainstream media outlet has felt it would be wise to mention these statistics to their audience.

Nor has any outlet apparently mentioned that the leading proponent of anti-Asian sentiment is the Biden administration, which has seemed to undermine the Asian community by promoting affirmative action policies that hurt them to benefit blacks.

These policy prescriptions are rooted in the critical race theory propaganda (which the administration also endorses) that Asians are privileged and must therefore be discriminated against for the purposes of effectuating “anti-racism.”

The racist ideas of the left-wing hatemonger mentioned above, Ibram Kendi, have reportedly been adopted by President Joe Biden’s military.

As noted earlier, all signs and evidence currently point to the mass shooting having been motivated by misogyny, not racial hatred. One piece is of evidence is the shooter’s own claim to authorities that’d resented the massage parlor workers because of his sex addiction. Another piece of evidence is the record of this very addiction.

The suspect “spent time in rehabilitation for sexual addiction last year,” CNN reported, citing one of several sources.

The suspect was also “recently kicked out of the house by his family due to his sexual addiction, which, the source said, included frequently spending hours on end watching pornography online,” according to CNN.

Despite these now-known bombshell facts, numerous other media figures and outlets joined Young in focusing their attention on white people, with all of them convinced that the shootings MUST have been rooted in white supremacy.

Look:

Everybody seen above is a media reporter, journalist or commentator, yet they’ve all reached conclusions in stark contradiction of the facts. Is this what contemporary “journalism” looks like? If so, that’s a problem …
