Sean Lennon pushes back hard against woke PC culture: ‘Whites are not the problem either’

Sean Ono Lennon, who is the son of Beatles legend John Lennon and the notoriously liberal Yoko Ono, took a strong stand on Twitter Sunday and blasted PC culture, calling it too extreme and stating that “whites are not the problem.”

Lennon contends that shoving political correctness down peoples’ throats has resulted in a racist backlash that is only getting worse.

“When I was young ppl used to say racist s*** about Asians around me all the time and then be like ‘Oh sorry! But you’re not reeeally Asian so…’ and I think they sincerely thought that would make me feel better,” Lennon said on Twitter.

“I’m not exactly sure why I brought that up but I think it’s because I want to say that I grew up in a time when there was zero political correctness. I literally saw political correctness being invented right in front of me (at certain schools) and then distributed and eventually enforced as a mindset and ideology,” he proffered.

He seems to believe that while political correctness may have originally intended to fight racism, it has instead ushered in an era where the cure is ostensibly worse than the disease.

“The road to hell is paved w good intentions,” he said quoting Samuel Johnson. “We’ve been trying this kind of morality policing for awhile now & I would posit things are arguably getting worse. Race relations seem to be in the middle of a ‘two steps back’ moment,” he tweeted to his followers.

“I say this not only because it seems clear from news events and statistics that race relations in this country are particularly terrible, but also because my DMs have never been more filled with bizarre WWII era bullshit (like chink and jap, or whatever),” he tweeted.

Lennon then stepped over a line and took on the left full-frontal: “I am very sad that I feel like I have to say the following but here goes: Asians are not the problem. Blacks are not the problem. Jews are not the problem. And yes, Whites are not the problem either,” Lennon stated. “No race or culture is ‘the problem.'”

“I have lived in many cities and countries and I can say from experience that there is an EQUAL distribution of s***ty ppl and good ppl in EVERY human population. Most are good, some aren’t great, and a very small number are clinical sociopaths you absolutely need to avoid,” Lennon correctly asserted.

Then he brought up how Americans are self-segregating along “tribal lines” in a manner not observed before: “When I grew up New York truly felt like a melting pot. It wasn’t perfect, but ppl did not self segregate along tribal lines to the degree that I am seeing today. There is something wrong with the strategy and direction we have chosen, in academia, in politics, and elsewhere.”

“I am simply saying we should check our strategy if we are not getting the results we intended. I don’t know what the solution is, but I suspect that over sensitizing ppl to arbitrary characteristics like skin colour may be doing more harm than good,” he remarked.

“I know very well that the idea of being ‘colour blind’ is out of fashion, that MLK’s vision of character over skin colour is considered to be naive. But that vision surely made our society better. I’m not sure the modern vision of ‘race consciousness’ is making things better,” Lennon added.

“And one more thing…just remember who benefits from the ‘divide and conquer’ paradigm. It ain’t us that’s for sure,” he concluded.

Lennon was applauded for his stance on Twitter:
