Jeff Goldstein may have outdone himself with this one. He describes black men assaulting and gang-banging a hot white chick in order to get everyone riled up about how stupid feminists who discuss “white privilege” are — as in, stupid white chicks feel so guilty about their white privilege, they’ll get wasted and pass out so that animalistic black men can rape them. It’s a great way to show that lefties are overly-sensitive about this stuff, it really is. And remember, kids: Rape is always funny! Especially when you can use it to simultaneously tap into peoples’ fears about over-sexed black guys who are going to violate pretty white things.
Yes, I am a humorless feminist about this one. Fuck you, Jeff. But thanks for proving the point that the people who resist concepts like racism and privilege are often the ones with the most fucked-up racial issues.
Prediction: Next, I’m going to be described as “the racist one” for pointing out that Jeff played on long-established racist stereotypes of black men. Because surely, Jeff and his commentariat are colorblind, and it’s those of us who notice these things who are the people who must really think black men are the over-sexed animals.
