Walking while white now frowned upon: Gutfeld tackles claim that how white people walk is racist

With the mainstreaming of the radical left’s toxic critical race theory, which holds that systemic racism is rampant in America and that all white people are inherently racist, it has become politically correct to attack and discriminate against Caucasians.

With there being little to support the farfetched premise, other than carefully crafted political conjecture designed to bring about the true goal of reparations, everything is game for the woke brigade. Even how white people walk.

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld called attention to an article by Kenny Allen, opinion editor of the Northwestern University’s student newspaper on Thursday’s edition of “Gutfeld!”

“Everything is racist — he needed to mock how white people walk,” Gutfeld said. “I speak of the Northwestern University newspaper editor who says the way white people walk on sidewalks is racist. Kenny Allen wondered why when he’d walked on campus he’d always be bump into people, even when sidewalks were relatively empty.”

Saying a “normal person” might get their eyes checked, Gutfeld stressed that Allen “is not normal.”

“He is a woke college student, so he decided instead to write an article about how racist white people are,” Gutfeld continued, quoting Allen who wrote: “White people came to expect the right away in public spaces. White people taught their kids to move through the world in the same way. Many white people walk around campus having unknowingly absorbed this particular facet of white supremacy.”

“So walking is racist,” Gutfeld said. “So what’s his next article going to be on? How elevators were made just to help the white man ascend to the top faster? I would bring up the racist undertones of moving stairs, but I don’t want to escalate things.”

After feigning laughter over the obvious pun, the Fox News host noted how in today’s society, those who push such ideas are frequently rewarded.

Panelist Kat Timpf astutely said racism is yesterday’s sexism, pointing to an article seven years ago about “man-slamming,” written by a woman who claimed that men were always bumping into her when she walked, but rarely did women.

To test the hypothesis, Timpf said she wore a hidden camera and walked around New York City’s Grand Central Station

“Three times as many women bumped into me as men,” she said, as footage of the video played on a split screen. “The thing is, you set out to find something — you are looking for sexism, you are looking for racism, you’re going to find it.”

“Imagine if the white people did move? ‘They all move out of the way when I come out on the sidewalk because they’re so racist!'” she sarcastically noted. “That would be the article then.”

Fellow panelist Kris Fried said he had no “white male straight comedian jokes,” before saying it was probably “just selfish American people.”

“Everybody get’s sidewalk rage, there’s slow people, there’s cut off people,” he said. “It’s the same as being in a car and you can see their race — you can probably assume their gender in a car.”

Gutfeld chimed in to say “it just shows how indoctrinated everybody is in this kind of, like, woke ideology.”

“That’s right,” said panelist Kelly Loeffler, the former U.S. senator from Georgia. “But at least none of us will be surprised when Northwestern tears up the sidewalks at the university. We’ll say, ‘Okay, the world is a much better place. Much more fair.'”

Charlie Hurt, opinion editor of The Washington Times, jokingly agreed with Gutfeld when he suggested segregated sidewalks, with “a lane for blacks and a lane for whites.”

“That’s the perfect Democrat solution. That exactly what would solve all of this,” Hurt said, before stressing that Allen is a victim, but not a a victim of what he thinks he is a victim of.

“He is not a victim of racism — well, it’s a strain of racism —  he’s a victim of having been lied to by all of these political hacks for his entire…teenage life where everybody tells him that oh, no, everybody is so racist,” he continued. “And then when you sort of view people with this one way of lens through which you look at everything, it is not surprising that he ends up writing a really embarrassing thing for the campus paper about how racist the sidewalks are.”

Hurt concluded by noting that this article is the sort of thing he be reading in The New York Times.”

“This anti-racism woke cult is giving users carte blanche to be racist,” Gutfeld said in bringing the segment to an end. “This person is saying I don’t like how white people walk. That is actually, legitimately racist — but because you are part of the anti-racist cult, you can actually say that.”
