Criticizing the "wealthy elite" is anti-Semitic, according to new speech codes from the "Reframing Race initiative" covered by the Guardian on Tuesday.
From The Guardian, "Avoid phrases that link negativity with blackness, anti-racism report recommends":
Phrases and words that link negativity with blackness and positivity with whiteness – such as "black mood", "dark times" or "whiter than white" – reinforce racist connotations and should be avoided, an anti-racism initiative has recommended.Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said a few years ago he prefers the term "people of means."
Instead of using the word "racism", campaigners should talk about the "ideology of racism" or the "practice of racism" as overuse of the standalone term racism without additional information or context can create an "unavoidable fog".The shifting goalposts is just comical. It's even funnier that some of these sayings are being pushed from the top down on the GOP by "the powerful few."
Just last week, GOP leader Kevin McCarthy canceled Republican Rep. Eli Crane of Arizona because he accidentally said "colored people" instead of "people of color."
