A lawsuit has been filed alleging that an Arkansas High School did not allow a black student, Kymberly Wimberly, to be sole valedictorian because of her race, and instead forced her to share the title with a white student. The lawsuit asking for over $75,000 was filed by the mother of Kymberly, claiming that her daughter had the highest GPA and therefore should be the sole valedictorian. This story has gone somewhat viral in the last 24 hours among the left with a near unanimous conclusion that this is overt racism.
Among those who are waging a war against colorblindness, it has become a social virtue to talk about race. This is especially true on college campuses where race awareness clubs are formed, and racialist events are held. If you find yourself in one of these events, you will most likely listen to a guest speaker or sit around in a circle and discuss race in America in very abstract terms. Not everything will be abstract; they will give hard facts about disparities between races, (all of which will be either wrong or misleading) and they will make clear accusations against white America, but in terms of solutions, things will become vague. The whole time there will be a sense that those who choose to come to these events are the select few with the courage to talk about race. This makes talking about race a kind of virtue in and of itself. There are two main problems with this: 1. People become so pleased with themselves for talking about race that they convince themselves they’ve actually done something 2. Most of the issues they attribute to race (which is nearly every issue), don’t in fact have to do with race.
