We can be sure American society is truly Fucked Up Beyond all Redemption when we read news items like this:
Social media lit up Wednesday evening with complaints of racism after former Hootie & the Blowfish lead singer Darius Rucker performing “White Christmas” at the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony at New York City’s Rockefeller Square. There has been civil unrest all week in New York after a grand jury declined to indict a New York police officer in the death of unarmed Eric Garner during a confrontation over cigarette sales in July. Race activists urged on by professional race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton had threatened to disrupt the switch on.
The ceremony went ahead under police protection, and Rucker performed “White Christmas,” a classic written by a Jewish immigrant, Irving Berlin.
The mob, products of America’s catastrophically failed, politically correct education system are so stupid they had no trouble convingcing themselves that the mere reference to the color “white” by a black singer in the throes of a racially-charged controversy was offensive , sent out the message that Christmas is only for White people, and suggested New York City authority and Mr. Rucker felt contempt for the feelings of black people.
The song refers to snow, the stuff that falls out of northern skies in winter, in recalling a traditional Christmas scene, it is not about race or cocaine – not to be confused with ‘China White‘ (oops, pardon – just can’t get away from racist references these days) .
