*Oh this is rich.
A Christian radio host insisted last week that white people were no longer racist, and said even if they were, it’s the fault of racist black people.
Stay with us here.
Sandy Rios, a 63-year-old conservative that hosts a show on American Family Radio, was offended when a listener suggested she was racist toward black people, who she blamed for inciting white racism.
Side bar: Last I checked, the very act of “racism” stems from the mindset of an oppressor. Black people have been a lot of things, but “oppressor?” Not so much. Who, pray tell, have they oppressed?
That’s not to say that there aren’t blacks who are prejudiced. Of course there are. People of many cultures are prejudiced against many things including: White people, Bi-racial people, gay people, even Christian people. But racist, dear, that’s something else.
Back to you.
“I think the racist garbage coming from the — uh, a lot of blacks right now who are just filled with bitterness and rage is just amazing to me,” Rios said. “It is racism, I am seeing it constantly here in D.C., you know, I think — and it’s causing white citizens to become more racist than they ever were.”
She continued, referring to white people using the term for Germanic tribes that once dominated England and is now generally associated with British-American Protestants and white supremacists.
“I think for the most part, the American Anglo-Saxon crew really has moved past racism, they did it quite a long time ago,” she said.
Rios, a Fox News contributor, (but of course, doesn’t it make sense now?) said racism had demonstrably ended because segregation was no longer legally enforced and the nation had elected a black president.
“I mean, they did elect Barack Obama twice, so I think it’s not nearly the issue in the white community that it was in the 50s, sure it isn’t, or the 60s – it just isn’t,” she said. “But it seems to be raging, racism seems to be absolutely raging in the black community.”
She blamed this rise of racist feelings among whites on this same black president who signaled the end of American racism.
“I think what’s causing it is people like Barack Obama and (Attorney General) Eric Holder, who can’t say enough and stir the pot enough to create anger and hatred and bitterness,” Rios said. “You know, they do the same thing with women, it’s the same thing in feminism, that’s why I’ve never been a feminist. I hate feminism.”
