Institutional racism. Systemic racism. Racism interwoven into the foundation of this country. It sure sounds like the U.S. is one big racist country. But is it really? Joining us today is Eric Kaufmann (manhattan-institute.org), Adjunct Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, who discusses his own detailed research into the subject. He conducted studies of how people perceive racism based on their exposure to media and politicians and his results are telling. He dives into how people of different races react to the subject and how none of those communities are benefiting from media narratives. When words and sensitive topics like this become weaponized, discussion is shut down and the problem only worsens.
Like most things that don't succeed, Marxism has had to shift its focus over the years. Author and speaker Steve Turley (www.turleytalks.com) is with us today to discuss how Marxism has shifted their focus from an economic one to a cultural one. In order to take over the culture, there had to be a unity among disparate “oppressed” groups against a common enemy or “oppressor” group which was the white race. Even when it has been proven that racism today is lower than it's ever been in our country, the focus was then shifted to systemic racism.
Dr. Turley points out how political correctness has become so egregious that a blow-back has occurred, so much so that kids in generation Z are way more conservative than their parents. To combat this, Marxists have fallen back on what's always worked for them – if you violate political correctness, they justify violence against you.
