In recent days, the New York Times
has been worked up over the White People Menace. For example:
What It’s Really Like to Work in Hollywood*
(*If you’re not a straight white man.)
That’s why the the man who made the most money in Hollywood, David Geffen and his $6 billion, is straight.
Oh, wait, Geffen has famously been not straight since his ill-fated fling with Cher in the 1970s.
Julia Roberts may not take the NYT’s
premise that her career in Hollywood has been held back by her lack of straight white maleness
as seriously as modern manners demand.
But Julia’s a trouper, so she gamely came up with this suitable anecdote:
Today, the NYT
is back with a front page blockbuster revelation:
The Faces of American Power, Nearly as White as the Oscar NomineesBy HAEYOUN PARK, JOSH KELLER and JOSH WILLIAMS FEB. 26, 2016We reviewed 503 of the most powerful people in American culture, government, education and business, and found that just 44 are minorities. Any list of the powerful is subjective, but the people here have an outsize influence on the nation’s rules and culture.
But what I was struck by was the New York Times’ statement by implication that Ted Cruz
and Marco Rubio
are “not white:”
Ted Cruz, Robert Menendez,
and Marco Rubio are “not white,” but self-identified Native American Elizabeth Warren is not not white.
Got that? There will
be a quiz.
