The United States racial crisis is currently escalating at a disturbing pace and shows no signs of slowing down. Despite the work of people like Martin Luther King Jr., it took only a few years of race baiters like Al Sharpton and Barrack Obama for the regression to begin.
It started with joy at a minority President and quickly slipped to making every situation racially specific. “White America” should do this, and “black America” should do that. Gone is the dream of not seeing color, only seeing one another as members of the human race. Gone is the push to break down racial barriers; now the effort is to construct them, stronger than ever. Only now, those who consider themselves to be at a disadvantage are trying to get other people to pick them up out of it, instead of picking themselves up and making a better life, if that’s what they want.
Like many of the oppressions throughout history, this one is starting with participation optional. They’re calling it “reparations” and those who are leading the army of frustrated African Americans would like for white people to pony up part of their salary and willingly donate it to black people. Conservative Daily Post reports that a New Orleans restaurant has made a reparations program where their white patrons are asked to pay more than their black counterparts:
“Just recently, as part of an extremely racist month-long ‘social experiment,’ a chef in New Orleans, Louisiana opened a pop-up restaurant asking white customers to pay more for their meal than everyone else in the name of wealth redistribution.
Specifically, last month, chef Tunde Wey opened up a Nigerian restaurant, called Saartj, that gives white customers the option to pay ‘$12 for lunch or the suggested price of $30…[while] ‘black customers are charged $12 and also given the option to collect the $18 paid by a white patron as a way to redistribute wealth.’
According to the website Civil Eats, customers are informed about the option after they order. Before getting into the details, though, they first must listen to a speech about a supposed ‘racial wealth gap’ that exists in the United States.
‘I start by asking them what they think the racial wealth gap is and then share stats about [how it manifests in] New Orleans and nationally,’ explained the restaurant’s creator while speaking with reporters. ‘Most of the time we tend to identify the problem, assign an antagonist, and address the problem,’ he added.
The various examples that he uses to support his claim about a ‘racial wealth gap,’ however, are extremely misleading.
So far, about 46% of the diners have been black and 45% have been white. Of the white diners, Wey mentioned that 78% of them agreed to pay the higher price. When asked why they decided to do so, he claimed that people are worried about being judged.
‘Refusing to pay more comes off as anti-social and people don’t want to be judged for that,’ reasoned Wey.
‘People look on the other side of the till and see me standing there and they’re thinking that I’m judging them,’ he added, noting, ‘if they couldn’t pay a higher amount, they gave me a list of caveats why they couldn’t.’
Shockingly, though, when the black customers were offered the additional money, 76% turned it down. On top of that, Wey added that he even had to turn down several black customers who tried to pay the ‘white people’s’ price. ‘Black people have even tried to pay the $30 and I’m like ‘No, it’s not for you,’’ he told reporters.
Sadly, racism against white people is becoming increasingly common. Earlier this month, for example, Nick Rust, the chief of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), gave an extremely racist speech while at the Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards ceremony calling out the industry for having too many white athletes.
‘We are fortunate within horse racing to have such a diverse workforce,’ began Rust.
“We have a 50-50 gender balance among our stud and racing staff and around a quarter of our workforce are from outside Britain, with more than half of these outside of the European Economic Area. However, diversity does not always mean equality,” he explained before pointing out that 90% of the 265 people nominated to receive an award were white.
“We need to look at what lies behind this and ensure far better representation across the various minority groups in future years,” continued Rust.
“Ensuring equality of opportunity within our sport is something that our relatively newly formed diversity in racing steering group is challenging,” he added, noting, “we need to challenge ourselves as to whether there exists a conscious or unconscious bias within our industry when it comes to issues such as gender, race or disability.””
The fact that some are turning down the money, and even offering to donate themselves, is hope for us that there are still reasonable people in the world. The non-racist approach to charity is one where those who have more offer it to those who have less, regardless of the color of their skin.
Nothing about this program is working for change. Like many of the projects pushed by the reparations movement, it’s only deepening the racial divide. If the restaurant in question truly wanted to help the less fortunate, they would take money from whoever they could and give it to those in need. Even if they focused on seeing out needy African Americans, that wouldn’t be wrong. What is wrong is saying that they’ll only help a person in need if they can take the money from the evil white person.
