My favorite game to play when I see headlines such as this one from the Huffington Post “Motion 312: If You’re An Old White Guy, I Don’t Want to Hear” is to reverse the gender and race and ask if it would then be deemed ok for publishing.
We all know the answer that if this column was not about old white males, it would never have seen the light of day and the writer would not be welcome to submit anything in the future but since it bashes the right sect, no problem.
Not only does the author Supriya Dwivedi use the term “old white men” 5 times and “old white guy” twice to make it such an extremely racist and ageist column, it is also about the most illogical piece of tripe I’ve ever read.
By using her thinking, no one may have an opinion on any issue unless it directly relates to them and as an example, a MP may only vote on pension legislation if they are of retiree age.
What a silly young, brown girl.
