There was a tussle over a seat on a Toronto subway recently. A young man was resting his feet on a seat when along came an older woman who decided to sit on the seat occupied by the dude’s sneakers, presumably to teach him a lesson.
Just another ho-hum commute in Toronto? Not really. Things got a tad physical.
Some may find fault with both the disrespectful young man and the busybody woman for engaging such a fight in the first place.
However, check out the analysis by Tasheka Lavann, a self-described LGBTQ activist and motivational speaker in a Huffington Post article headlined:
“White People See A Lesson In Manners. I See A Racist Assault.”
Lavann tags the woman’s actions as “the latest RACIST act in Canada – the notion that, somehow, this young man deserved to be harassed and assaulted” adding, “She wanted to exercise her privilege. She wanted this young black man to know his place – probably at the back of the train or not on it at all.”
Are these the new race rules the loony left are advocating, that people with opposing viewpoints can only debate if everyone is of the same race, because doing otherwise would be considered racist with blame automatically assigned to Caucasians who have white privilege?
Sorry Tasheka Lavann. If everything is racist, then nothing is racist.
