Fools like Lopez-Pierre can always get away with this stuff, if they use the right terms. Like “community” and “empowerment”.
Don’t be behind the times, they don’t even have to use code, they can say the most blatantly racial things right in front of the news cameras and no one will even notice. It’s expected that they will look out for “their own”. “Our” president has done it, in ads during the campaign targeted to blacks telling them “I’ve had your back, now I need you to have mine” The head of the “Just-Us” dept can openly talk about his office in the context of “my people”. It’s only a thoughtcrime when whites think, God forbid act, racially. We’re going to have to somehow unshackle the chains of political correctness and white guilt, forged by decades of indoctrination and propaganda, from our minds if we’re to survive.
