New Jersey is openly committed to systemic racism


The term “systemic racism” has been whirled around a lot, especially in recent years. Most of it is just hyperbolic, overheated rhetoric used by some to gain more power or political advantage.

There does not appear to be any evidence of how the term is used by many other than positive action, which uses race for preferential treatment in education and employment.

Now the state of New Jersey is doubling down and promoting a more aggressive and blatant form of racism. At least one government agency has told its members not to speak at a conference held only by white men.

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority published this statement in response to our newsroom. “In most circumstances, NJEDA staff should not attend if the panel / speakers are all white men. If employees are asked to take part in such a panel, they should inform the applicant about the guidelines of the NJEDA and, if necessary, suggest further, diverse speakers. “

Of course, such a guideline directed at another group would not be acceptable. But the answer to racial prejudice or unfair treatment is no longer the same poison.

It is doubtful that when a panel is made up of white men, other people have been excluded from other groups because of their race or gender. But this kind of politics presupposes this and therefore engages in racist animus and fosters division and resentment among people who should have one goal: to get the job done well.

Racial and identity politics are toxic and divisive and, unfortunately, are used excessively and incessantly in politics and government today.

Very few people want to call it what it is. It’s the definition of racism.

Most people shake their heads or whisper to someone they know they can trust that this is some type of BS, but someone has to say it out loud. I did it there.
